Why, yes I've found a fandom where I like Het pairings. ;) It happens so rarely it deserves special notice. *grins*
NOTE: Updated Feb. 13th 2019
Recs are divided up by pairing
You can find more recs in my memories here, with my recs tag here and on AO3 here. All these links have multifandom recs, not just HP. You will also find more recs in many fandoms here
NOTE: Some links may be broken, I am trying to list other places to find those fics. If you find a broken link, leave a comment and I'll try to fix it.

I'm always looking for new fics to read. If you know of a fic you think I'll love, based on these recs, feel free to leave a comment here. You can see other pairings I'm interested in here.
First up was My Year at the Moulin Rouge by Cliff Simon.I became a fan of Cliff via Stargate SG-1 and his portrayal of everybody's favorite Goa'uld Ba'al, but I knew vey little about his life beyond that. This book was very engaging. The look behind the scenes of the Moulin Rouge was amusing. What I found most interesting though, was the look at how he changed and grew and how his views and beliefs changed and evolved once he moved beyond his, rather sheltered, childhood.
Next was On the Road (Growing Up in Eight Journeys - My Early Years) by Richard Hammond. I have read Richard's other memoir books and loved them. I love the way he writes. He writes the way people talk, so his books read as if he was sitting next to you telling you the stories. That said, I didn't much care for this book. I found it a tad boring.
I saved, what I knew would be my favorite, for last. Thanks a Lot Mr. Kibblewhite: My Story by Roger Daltrey. I have wanted to hear/read/see Roger's story told by him for years. There are so many stories about The Who, and it's members, floating around and many of the tales have grown in the telling and with this book we finally get a look at some of those stories from Roger's pov. It's about time. I love this book. Many of the embellishments are stripped away and we see Roger, and The Who, in a very straight forward, no nonsense way. The book is hilarious, thoughtful, melancholy, painful, joyous and It's extremely refreshing.
After all that I found a note I made to remind myself to add a few fanfics to my Harry Potter fic recs post and decided I better re read them to refresh my memory so I would get any needed warning correct. So right now I am half way through a reread of Returning to Sanity by AchillesTheGeek. I forgot just how long this would take me to read. This fic is not for the faint of heart, it's over 640,000 (that's not a typo) words! So, look for it and two other fics, to e added to that post in the coming weeks.(2 Draco/Harry & 1 Severus/Harry/Lucius)
Because of being sick I decided not to participate in fandom_stocking . I knew wouldn't have the energy to fill any stockings and I don't like to make requests if I can't fill other's requests.
I'll likely be fairly quiet until Christmas is over. This is a very stressful time of the year for me and I don't handle it well. I'm snarky and rude at the best of times and all this stress makes it much worse.
I shall go curl up with my Kindle and read fanfic 'til I feel better. ;)
The Honorverse is probably my absolute favorite book series. It's also just about the only Science Fiction I read. When I started reading the series I had never read any Science Fiction at all and a lot of the technical stuff baffled me. It took quite a while, but I eventually figured it out.
I highly recommend the series.
If you have never read or maybe never heard of the series and are interested, I have a post with information, links and a proper reading order here.
( Spoilers Spoilers Spoilers! You have been warned )

*Please forgive any typos. I'm stuck posting from my phone.
So while I migrated to Tumblr and Facebook for my fannish endeavors, it only took a few years for me to become disgusted with how fandom evolved on those sites. It became a toxic dumpster fire, with more ship wars and vitriol than I had ever seen; and considering my fandoms, I have seen some pretty nasty stuff. So, I pulled away from fandom and just skirted the fringes for the last two years or so. But I have recently decided, I miss fandom. More specifically, I miss how fandom worked on LJ. So, I've come home.
Expect few posts in the coming days. I have things to say about Doctor Who, David Weber's Honor Harrington series and Stargate.
To new friends, feel free to browse through my old posts or even take a look through my Tumblr (arenee1999) to get a sense of who I am. My Tumblr will tell you exactly who I am, the wide mix of content creates a rather complete picture of my personality. I also have some of my graphics posted there. My favorites will probably get posted here eventually. I also have a small amount of fic posted on AO3 (arenee1999). Most of it's crap, but it's there if you're curious.
I have once again signed up for fandom_stocking after a two year hiatus. For those that don't know what that is: It's a gift exchange. You post a wishlist and other people fill them. You can get/give fic, art, graphics, recipes, recs, general greetings. You're not required to gift to everyone but are encouraged to gift to a few people. I always try to gift to at least a few people with small/obscure fandoms listed, as they tend to get the fewest gifts.
Fall television season is about to start! I’m anxiously awaiting the return of a few shows, The Blacklist, The Flash and Supernatural the most. Also, The Librarians. There aren’t many new ones I’m interested in this year, I will be watching Seal Team, because David Boreanaz.
Other shows, new and returning: Supergirl, Scorpion, Legend's of Tomorrow, This Is Us, Designated Survivor, The Good Place (ridiculous, but I watch it anyway), Arrow, Blindspot, The Gifted (maybe), The Orville (maybe), Black Lightning (maybe).
Then of course there’s the Christmas episode of Doctor Who. I am excited and sad all at the same time for that. Excited and curious to see what happens and how it all plays out. Excruciatingly sad to see the Twelfth Doctor go. I legitimately have no opinion on Jodie as the Doctor. I will wait and see how she does before I judge, I was wrong about Eleven being awful, I've learned my lesson. My worry is Chris Chibnall as show runner. I’ve seen his episodes of Doctor Who and I don’t like them. I’ve seen Broadchurch and I don’t like it. I don’t really like most of his Torchwood episodes, so no I don’t have high hopes for the writing and direction of the show moving forward. But enough of that for now. I’ll complain more in December!
I did take the summer to watch a few things I hadn’t seen before. Star Trek Voyager, which I LOVED! Primeval, I also liked quite a lot. Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, what the frack even is that?!?! Seriously, it’s bat-shit crazy! It’s also just odd enough that I might watch season 2, though I’ll wait for it to finish airing and binge watch it all at once.
Currently most of the group ships Captain Canary, but we are trying to get a more diverse membership. Everyone is welcome no matter who you ship or if you don't ship anyone!
Oh, and uh... Hi everyone! *runs and hides*
I found a couple really good beef stew recipes so I thought I'd share. The first one can be left on the stove to cook on a low heat. The second can be done in a crockpot/slowcooker as long as you brown the meat on the stove then add everything to the crockpot.

In your own space, create your own challenge. What’s something you want to see more people doing in fandom? Is there something fun you’ve tried that you think other people would enjoy if they gave it a go? Dare your friends to try it out, and have fun with it.
1) Try something new! Be it a new fandom, a pairing you never thought to try or a kink/trope you've been ignoring. epic_recs crack_van and smallfandomfest are good places to start looking
2) Post a rec for that one fic/art/vid/book/show/movie/etc you've always loved but have been ashamed to admit to liking.
3) Join/participate in a community/meme/activity designed to make you create and/or interact with a larger portion of fandom. such as:. snowflake_challenge, fandom_stocking, naarmamo, NaNoWriMo, or join a landcomm (there are dozens) or post in a friending meme or just join something designed to make you post more 100things_index, 30 day meme, rectober, etc
In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing.
This is both difficult and easy. There are so many awesome creators in fandom, narrowing it down to one is near impossilble. There are so many that I love that I'll read anything they care to write. I know I'll forget a bunch, but here is a partial list: van, stillrose, killabeez, aspenlight, batsutousai, nautibitz, jinxed_wood, madeleone, Good_Witch, literaryspell, and a whole bunch more. Everyone on my flist is there because I like what they do. ♥♥♥
In your own space, talk about what you bring to fandom. It can be something tangible, or not.
Each one of us interacts with fandom in their own way. What is yours? Do you create fanworks? Edit? Cheerlead? Create rec lists? Mod a challenge? Leave awesome feedback? Click that Kudos button (and maybe wish it could be clicked more than once per fanwork)?
Didn't we already answer this with or responses to days 1, 3 & 5? I create graphics, occasionally write and I've beta-ed a few times. I also ocassionally leave comments and I leave kudos.
