Today's challenge for Fandom Appreciation thingy was to rec five challenge fics. I figured since I still had a zillion Yuletide fics bookmarked, this would be a good way to whittle down that list. Well. Instead of just going alphabetically by fandom as I have been with these, I hunted around for the fandoms that seemed most likely to have something I really like (i.e. not the fandoms I'm not so much with the remembering canon on). Still, it took a lot longer than I'd have liked, but I did manage to find three fives and two fours, so I'm counting those all as recs. :p At least nothing was really horrible this time. I think the rest were all just threes.
