"March 6 through March 13 is Fanfic Author Appreciation Week, where you post to your LJ each day at least one of your favorite fanfic authors and why you love them, their work, and why they need more appreciation."
Where to start?!?!?!
Let's see... just to annoy the squeamish (*G*) and ruin my squeaky-clean reputation, allow me to rec one of my favorite RPS authors, who writes Monaboyd. Her name is app1e_pi (*G*). Every time I see her icon, I find a great story behind it, over at the monaboyd lj. What makes a great monaboyd story? Snappy give-and-take dialogue, passion, ease with each other, and glimpses of vulnerability - all true to character. And before anybody gives me a lecture on RPS - it's all made up. *S* Granted I hope the people involve never read it, but it's taking a "character" and writing them into a story - that's all. *S*
An example? Well, it's not fair to her, but it's such a great, sexy, well-written set of stories with incredible snarky snappy dialogue - the sign of a great monaboyd - that I can't resist. Why is it not fair to her? Because it's co-written with lord_alexander. It's a story called "Phone Tig", a quick seven-parter AU where Dom and Billy are co-workers on... a sex chat phone line. *G* With phone cameos by Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood, and Ian McKellen - *G*.
