REMINDER – REC THE RECCERS

This challenge was requested by the community, so we know there are some recs out there! Likely you folks are just really crazy busy as the year rolls through this lovely season and on toward the holidays, so here we go with a friendly reminder.

Please come on over to lotr_fic_recs and recommend the reccers – give us links to those individuals and groups who have lists of recommended stories in the LotR fandom and be sure to link to their actual rec page or pages!

Recommend as many reccers as you like, as often as you like, just be sure to use our special rec site template.

The challenge entry is over here.

Please advertise the challenge in your own journal or in any communities where individuals might be interested.

Thanks!

REC THE RECCERS!!

Well, we are in that lovely "school just started, pre-holiday, people are busy, Mercury is in retrograde" period where the recs just kind of slump a bit. But the goal of this community is to gather as many of the good recs for LotR stories as we can – to provide footprints for future fans to follow to all the good stuff in the fandom.

Reccers


A lot of LotR web sites are disappearing, LiveJournals of individual fans and communities are being deleted or going silent, and, as we have found in our challenges, even some stories and novels are gone except for the precious private hoards of some fans. In light of this and in light of our community's vision, I would like to make our next challenge a rather important one for posterity.

Between now and November 1st, please recommend the reccers – give us links to those individuals and groups who have lists of recommended stories in the LotR fandom and be sure to link to their actual rec page or pages!

In a future challenge we will be asking for your recs of archive sites and of individual author sites. Meanwhile, please make each recommendation one comment to make it easier on our readers!

For this one, we have a special template for your rec. Please use it. As usual, we recommend that you copy and paste:



THANKS SO VERY MUCH!!

Reminder: Birthdays!

Hi everyone, happy Baggins Birthday! Don't forget that we have a challenge going this month looking for LotR and Lotrips fics about birthdays. Could be Frodo and Bilbo or anyone else. Whether you're reading something new posted today or remembering something from years ago, we'd love to hear about it. The challenge post is here. Thank you!

New challenge: Birthdays

Here is a rec theme we haven't done before: this month, please recommend LotR and Lotrips fics about BIRTHDAYS.

Hobbit fandom is used to celebrating Frodo's and Bilbo's birthdays on September 22nd, and there will surely be new Baggins birthday fics posted this month. We want to know about these stories but we also want to read about how Pippin, Aragorn, and the LotR actors celebrated their birthdays. Point us to the stories about how hobbits and Men learn about each other's birthday traditions. What about Billy and Orlando's first flight to New Zealand? Show us the presents, the mathoms, the parties and the orgies!

PORTRAYAL OF GOLLUM

Gollum


Between now and September 1st, please recommend a good story that contains a memorable portrayal of Gollum.

We have never done this particular challenge before, believe it or not, so there are no previous responses to list. Please recommend as many as you like, as often as you like. AND remember, you can recommend one of your own fics now as long as you recommend something by another author first.

Please copy and paste the items below into your comment to make sure you include everything that readers may need to find the fic, if it is still available:



All the components of a rec are explained here. The community process and the rules are here.

Feel free to respond to other comments if you'd like to second someone's rec, mention something else you like about the fic, or say thank you. Since this is a reccing comm and not a fic debate or discussion comm, we don't allow negative comments about fics, but we do believe in sharing the squee. :)

Thanks in advance, everyone.
