stuff + question...

[001] September is my month at crack_broom! I posted my first H/D rec today over here. I'm hoping to do all eight fic recs + 2 art recs...which might actually happen since holidays are over and no more roadtripping :|

[002] I find it awesome to be able to track tags - this way I can get notified when favorite authors/artists/icon makers/SHINY PEOPLE post about something in particular. Probably increases the stalker!quotient, but it's still wonderful. So now I can just track harry/draco and admin tags on crack_broom rather than drowning my f-list page.

[003] It's that time of the month/season/year - am changing a third of my icons. I just wish there were more threadless!icons on LJ. Though it's awesome that whoresque and kiwiicons are taking requests.

[004] Some authors are particularly awful wonderful for teasing us with the possibility of new shiny fic in future. *eyes furiosity and amanuensis1* Of course maderr goes one step further by providing a snippet of the new and improved Main Gauche fic (the older version is here). Bloody teases, the lot of them :(

[005] If you haven't seen the H/D Newspaper Clipping challenge do check out the entries - though you probably shouldn't be drinking anything if you do.

[006] I got the Guild Wars game - I mean, lack of monthly subscription? AWESOME. However, my sis' PC is so old it doesn't even have a video card. PC from Best Buy. It makes me bouncy cause I wanted 2GB RAM and all those I customized ended up around $1000+...this? $750 including 2 year warranty ♥ And I'll be able to reinstall Photoshop CS3 on the new PC ;__;

[007] Super Horoscopes! OMG *__* Loish is amazing.

[008] QUESTION. What did/will/wound you do on your 21st birthday? I may end up at a pub or disco...but it feels a bit blah...(yes, I view Austin's 6th street as blah)

H/D Fandom Favorites/Classics

About 225 fics are listed under the cut. I decided to compile all the fics that have been listed in the past as "classics" - this way it'll be easier to select new fandom favorites in future...


Sep 3rd: sulky_rhino provided a complete detailed list of corrected links and titles *spazzes and flails* SHE IS MADE OF WIN.

Sep 4th: Included author lj names and aliases + sulky_rhino provided new fiction alley links and misssing names.

Sep 5th: Note - I know the label of 'Classic' is completely relative and ultimately depends on how much exposure fics get in fandom. Still, I noticed that every time a classics/favorites survey/poll is done, a lot of fics are repeated time and again. If fandom is going to choose 'new classics' I'd rather they be new favorites and not stuff we've seen in every previous survey. Hence this list.

The fics are fandom favorites, based on popular vote in the following surveys:
