In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving.
The first one is easy. The Sunrise Hotel series by Pepe. I can't give you a link since she's taken her work off the net and has asked that folk not share, so I'm honoring that. The series was SG-1, Jack and Daniel and my first exposure to really explicit, hot and dirty male/male sex. I'd, like, read some and blink twice and back out of it. And then sneak back to read 'just a bit more'... yowza. But beyond the sex was Jack and Daniel dealing with the emotional fallout of being more than just friends-with-benefits. That series made me into a slash believer and addict!
Beautiful Broken by LitGal here (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)
Again, my first Spike/Xander fic, which included some non-con, BSDM and slavery. Fairly dark and graphic but so well written that it lured me in and made be believe that Spike and Xander belonged together. But I had been a pretty fluffy and happy-ending person up to that point and this lured me to a darker side.
(huh. I have lots of bookmarks and a couple of current fic subscriptions on AO3 that are for LitGal. Small world.)
Not a fic but a podcast: Welcome to Night Vale... located here
I'm not into creepy things but, well, there's creepy and there's Night Vale. Welcome to Night Vale is its own value for creepy. If you don't know it, there's really no explaining it. You only have to listen to the first episode to be hooked. And do watch for the black helicopters. They are out to get you.
