Organizational Note to Readers
I've just transfered all the recs I made at the Live Journal version of Dusty Ryder's Recs here to Insane Journal. Unfortunately, it looks like some of the formatting is kind of screwed up, and all of the user-id tags are wrong. Also I need to fix my links, and get things organized. And it looks like some of the story and website links have gone bad since the last time I checked them - I'll have to fix those as well.
I'm going to have to dedicate some time and effort to fixing this journal up before its ready to see the public. I have my hands full at the moment, so that may take a week or two, sorry. I'll get everything taken care of as soon as I can, and hopefully this journal will be up and running by the new year - which is when I plan to start making new recs. I'll be making an announcement on asylum_promo when everything is up and ready to go.
In the meantime, you have a few options, if you're really convinced that you need to read recs by me right this very minute:
1. You can check out this exact same list of recs at dustyrydersrecs - which is the Live Journal version. That's what this journal will look like when I get through with it. Well, not the same layout...I'm still working on that, but the links work, everything is organized and the formatting is right. The only problem is a few links, which I need to fix, anyway. I'll fix those first off, but if you run across any broken links before I get to them, let me know, and I'll fix them right up.
2. Check out Dusty Ryder @ del.icio.us. That's also a recs list, but there are some fundamental differences. The recs here and at Live Journal represent my very favorites - the ones I'll be reading over and over again for years. That account is for things I liked well enough to keep, in case I might like to read them again at some point. Big difference. At least to me.
Now since that account is much newer than this one and this one hasn't been updated for a while, Dusty Ryder @ del.icio.us does have fic that will eventually end up over here. I have a Favorites category - all of the three star favorites will end up here, some of the two star will as well, and maybe even some of the one star fic. But not the others, despite the fact that I like them well enough to read them again. :::shrugs::: I tend to do that a lot.
BTW - since I started that account about the time I became obsessed with Buffy the Vampire Slayer, you'll find more Buffy recs there than anything else. It's a work in progress. I post there as I read the fic - so I have to add the older fic when I have spare time...you know how that goes... :::rolls eyes::: But most of my fandoms are represented there by now.
3. Visit smutday or the LJ version - smutday to read my (and other member's) smutty recs. That means NC17 fic, with almost no exceptions. You can find the recs on the tags list (down the side of the main page) by fandom, or you can read the posted fic by author. Just don't forget, at Smutday we're not looking for complicated plotlines and slow-building romances. We're only in it for the Smut.
Okay...so that's about it. Until I get this up and running, those are the options I can suggest for you. Thanks for stopping by, and I'll see you in the new year!
