Fandom Snowflake Challenge banner

Day’s 9′s challenge is to 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.

#1. Guy Gardner/Mary Marvel (DC Comics) fic series by duskdog717. This one is simply a pairing I had never even considered, because Guy Gardner and … Mary Marvel(??!). But this series is just really fantastic. It helps that Duskdog is Guy Gardner’s biggest fan, so she gives us a side of him that isn’t often portrayed. Even with their vastly different personalities, you believe that Mary could love him.

#2. I’ve never been interested in Twincest type fics, but I took the plunge into “Tencest” with Tenth Doctor/Metacrisis Doctor fics. And the Loved ‘Verse (Doctor Who) by fid_gin and unfolded73 is really, really good. It’s Ten/TenII/Rose and explores the uniqueness of a relationship where two of the people involved are essentially the same person.

#3. I’m not a fan of ‘serious’ zombies. Zombies as comedies I can do–I adore Shawn of the Dead and Zombieland. But I can’t stand The Walking Dead (I didn’t even make it through the first episode, turned it off halfway through with a headache from too much facepalming). So I’m not inclined to read anything with zombies. But during my devouring of Rumbelle fics this past summer I ran out of things to read and gave a zombie fic–There Was a Crooked Girl (Once Upon a Time) by marchionessofblackadder–a try and really enjoyed it. I was able to overlook my zombie issues because I really like the characters and the setting they are placed in.
