Day 2:

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.

The Voice of The Turtledove by obstinatrix

Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing: Dean/Castiel
Rating: NC-17
Summary: Castiel was eleven years old when he first felt there was something wrong with him. He's twenty-nine, a Roman Catholic priest in a small New England village, before Dean Winchester shows him that there isn't. AU.

It has well over 200 comments so as far as underappreciated goes this does not fit the bill. However, this is an amazing story.
I must have read it five times by now, I have it on my Kindle as well and it's just so *shivers from all the goodness*
It not only serves my Thornbird kink (I blame monastery school and that young German teacher, Father Daniel, I had when I was 17 and impressionable) but it's extremely well written, the emotion so vividly portrayed, it will leave you breathless!

Psychotically, irrationally, erotically co-dependent…the obsessive bromance of Supernatural by Pinkwood

Fandom: Supernatural

Meta. I don't usually like meta because I hardly find myself agreeing with the writer. Either their analysis doesn't go deep enough for me or they completely spin out of orbit and see connections where there are none.
This, however, is perfect and well-written to boot :D

The Groundhog Day Assimilation by Boonies read
as a podfic by juniperlane

Fandom: The Big Bang Theory
Ship: Penny/Sheldon
Summary: Who the hell just wakes up one morning thinking she's dating her boyfriend's roommate? Oh, right. Penny.

I really wanted to rec the original fic here but the author has locked down all her stories. I looked high and low for a copy elsewhere and this is the closest I found.

It is an hilarious story that, while true to the characters and the general tone of the show, goes into a completely different direction.
