In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Drop a link to your post in the comments. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom and maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

1. Rage and Weakness by [profile] tanyareed. due South, Fraser/Thatcher, PG-13.

Yes, these are two stories, but they read more like two parts of a whole, so I'm listing them under one selection. Written when the few Fraser/Thatcher fics out there sounded like they were written by 12-year-old teenyboppers, Rage is a breath of fresh air--a thoughtful, well-laid-out portrait of Thatcher, presenting her as someone in fearful control of her emotions and personal life. When she is assaulted (physically, not sexually--this is not rapefic), she must begin to trust someone other than her own tightly-controlled self.

The second piece, Weakness, is a look at how Fraser and Meg (and also Elaine, who is significant in this story--always a good thing!) deal with their own self-identified weaknesses in relation to the events of Rage as well as in relation to themselves and how they perceive others (and each other). The author shows each character as very human with flaws and hangups as well as the intelligence and wisdom to begin to overcome them. This was one of the very first Fraser/Thatcher fics I read, and it's still one of my very favourites.

Here are the links for Rage chapters 2,3,4, and 5.

Links for Weakness can be found here (easy to locate amongst other stories that you might want to read, too--if anyone would rather have links to individual chapters let me know in the comments and I'll link them).

2. Oklahoma by Amperage and Livengoo. X-Files, Mulder gen. Rated NC-17 for violence.

Summary: "It's 1987 and the Oklahoma cops have an unsolvable case. Fox Mulder, golden boy of the VCU, is called in to stop the murders of children across the state. What he finds takes him places he never wanted to go and forces him to make the pivotal choice of his life."

This is a really old story; I found it last year during a minor resurgence of my (also really old) X-Files obsession. This is X-Files pre-series gen; it reads like a psychological horror novel, with a really fucked-up Mulder investigating a child serial killer who finds a way--real or imagined, we don't know at the start--to get inside Mulder's head and mess with it even further. T.S. Eliot's poetry plays a central role in a wonderfully creepy way. This is Muldertorture (a subgenre I usually run screaming from) at its most Muldertorturous, and definitely NOT for the squeamish. It's also really, really good. I would love to comment on this story at the source, but it was written back when emails were the only way to comment, and I'm not sure the authors would appreciate kudos 16 years out.

3. If You Can See Where You're Going by [profile] isiscolo. due South/Wilby Wonderful crossover. Frannie/Buddy, PG.

This fic isn't really unknown, but I haven't seen it recced in a while, so maybe some newcomers haven't read it yet. Isis calls it "probably the most all-out romantic story I've ever written", and it's definitely that, in a really good way. What it is not is a "Frannie-meets-someone-who-looks-like-Fraser-and-they-live-happily-ever-after" story. On the contrary, this story is about Frannie dealing with just that subject--the evolution of her relationship with Buddy goes from a crush on a Fraser clone to a real look at her feelings about lots of things--including Fraser, and including Buddy as a separate person. Buddy's line to Carol "What do you see when you look at me"? is dealt with here, and his line "if you know where you come from, you can remember what you wanted" is turned on its ear. And the framing POV is perfect. So, yeah, it's a romance--intelligent, fun, and damn good. You don't have to have seen Wilby Wonderful to enjoy this fic, but if you haven't, I'll bet you'll want to afterwards. :)

This is one of my comfort stories. I bet it'll be one of yours, too. You can give Isis love here, at her LJ.

I made your list! **is very touched** Those two stories were a labour of love when I wrote them, and they took me forever to get down. "Weakness" is still one of my favorites of the fanfic I've written (and that's a lot...over sixty now, believe it or not) and I still occasionally get people asking me on when I'm going to write the third piece. I still haven't decided if I am or not.

Anyway, I just wanted to let you know you made my morning. **beams**

In case you have AVI format movies and desire to take them together with you on your mp3, you need to convert the crooks to a format suitable for iTunes and the particular iPod. Quicktime Pro can perform this, but the system isn't free and will convert files little by little. You can turn files quickly and at no cost using iSquint, a small system that just turns movie files (#(#(. avi,. mp4, mov,. mpg among others) with a file your mp3 can play.

Designing an Internet web site never been more easier in the 21st century. That's because we get access to web site design computer software which will allow us to easily create professional looking web sites and never have to pay the professional price. You will find so many available kinds of computer software available that it might just take me forever to enumerate all of them. But to narrow down the list there are some key features you'll need to think about like the wysiwyg feature, compatibility, language support and convenience. You might thing the look element of your online web site is the most crucial but it's merely a small element of your site.

The very first feature which has become the most significant one for several beginning users will be the wysiwyg. Also called "what you see is that which you get", this feature fundamentally shows the changes of one's web site as you're which makes it. As a result you don't have for you yourself to learn so much concerning the HTML language and you don't have to preview your site since it's already done for you personally. Even though it is ideal for starting users this feature includes compatibility problems among certain computer software.

The primary problem is concerning the previewing of one's web site during your computer software. In some instances like Microsoft FrontPage, the preview you receive from your own wysiwyg won't of necessity function as the same overall Internet browsers. What this means is in the event that you have compatibility problems your site might not appear correctly on some browsers that will lead you to lose valuable visitors. in that case then you definitely have to put in a few codes in your source code to create it ultimately suitable for all browsers. Yet another essential requirement will be the language support.

No, I am maybe not referring to spoken languages. I am referring to on line languages such as for example PHP, HTML, ASP, Java and the list continues. In the event that you intend on creating a simple web site utilizing the HTML markup language might be sufficient for you personally but in the event that you intend on carrying out a web site with multiple functions and complex programming you may want to resort to heightened languages such as for example PHP or Java. Generally HTML will suffice. Since there are a great number of features of all softwares you might want to have a convenient computer software to help ease your projects.

The easier to web site design computer software may be the more costly you will be charged you. Another the main equation may be the more features you have the more you will be charged additionally you. Needing to repeat the same task again and again may become pretty hard if you want to undergo many steps and that's why easier softwares can frequently remember what your last actions were with an easy click of a button you are able to do the entire process again.

When you're designing an internet site it's mainly since you want visitors to be attracted because of it. Remember though this only attracts human visitors and never robot visitors if you intend on getting good rankings through the various search engines regardless of just how many web site design computer software you utilize it's not going to matter if your website does not have great content.
