Hello~! Adding you because I love your recs. ♥

Would you terribly mind adding me back?

I've been looking at you website, 'fleeting fancies' and I went through the fanart recs.
You know the site 'checkmate'? Yeah, I think that's a Korean fanart site. I'm pretty certain because..well, it's my mother tongue and I can read Korean.
So, if you don't mind, could you change it slightly and say that it is a Korean fanart site? Sorry for the trouble. Thanks :D

Do you happen to remember what page the site is linked from? What series it was for? I'd be happy to change it to say a Korean site, but I have no idea what actual page it's on. D:

sorry for coming back on you so late.

it's near the bottom, and it reads 'check mate'.
It's from books and then hp and then hp fanart recs.Hope that helped!

Don't know how much you're into One Piece still, but this was a cute little LuNa drabble that I think you might like:

Awww, that was adorable, thank you! ♥ (I still like OP a lot, I recently caught up to chapter 500 even, just that. The fandom still makes my eyes glaze over a little. ^_~)

Wanted to say thank you for the rec for "Out Cold", I didn't know you'd read my Psych! <3 - and also, there's more of that story than I posted on, I think; further chapters can be found here...though the story is still not finished. Umm, oops, haveta get back to that...? ^^;;

(edited because I CAN SPELL REEL GUD.)

I've had your long one (th-the deathfic one ;__; ) on my "to read when I finally screw up the courage" list for ages now, just that I'm wary of getting my heart broken. I hadn't seen the two other ones until tonight, though! (But I've gotten really lazy about looking on FFNET when the success rate of finding goodfic on LJ is so much higher.)

OOH, EXCELLENT. ♥ And, well, I totally understand that interests are cyclical, even if I totally want to whine at you for more anyway. XD

I almost never venture to myself these days, unless through recs - some of my Psych-fic is on my lj, but I haven't posted the other two stories since they're WiPs...

Yeah...forget fandom butterfly, I have the fannish attention span of a gerbil on meth...(though right now I'm going on 10 months in SGA and am still fanning hardcore, which worries're lucky you never got into the McShep, it's a FANDOM BLACK HOLE that will never let you go ;____;) But I enjoy the hell out of Psych, really do want to get back to the fic! (the death-fic, eheheh...I wrote death-fic for Psych, OMG WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? But "Read Between the Lines" is my favorite of mine own Psych-fics, though, it's the only one that's actually true to the spirit of the show, I feel ^^;)

Somehow I missed Read Between The Lines and I thought I was keeping an eye out for these things. (But fandom moves so fast that tons of things slip through the cracks, I suppose.)

I have a bit of an idea how you feel. At least your canon is only ~22 episodes a year, if along with some extra specials/interviews or whatever else. Arashi puts out that much out practically every other week (when you factor in subs of older stuff that's being released, the weekly tv shows that are only available raw, the dramas they're in, the interviews/tv performances, etc.) and I wish to consume it all. It's never ending. ;___; Not that I'd change that for the world.

At the same time, I'm just as bad about flitting from fandom to fandom, there's too much out there that's really good. And Psych even started back up again this week! ♥

I wondered what had happened to your rec journal! I was bummed out thinking it was gone for good! At any rate, one of my proudest L/J moments came when writing the completely dorky Target fic, but I think I'm most proud of the even-more-dorky "Sally Forth," in which Juliet is cast as Sally Brown in You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown.

And now, for reasons unbeknownst to myself, I'm suddenly obsessed with LOCI. Let me know if you want another partner 'ship after you get done with NCIS ;-)

Lurker posting in for a moment and shyly shows a link here. It's just a cute one-piece fic and wonders if you'll like it.
Must tell you though that the website fleeting fancies is a real nice site, showing so many good fanfics that I'll never found otherwise. Thank yous!

*_____________________* OMG I LOVE YOU, THANK YOU. (Wooooow, there are already way more sites than I would have thought, I don't care if I never get out of fanart hell again, I'm at least going to be happy now. *__*)

Honestly? I haven't seen a series this beautiful probably since Loveless. <---this is where you had me

I'd heard of Nabari no Ou, it's one of those series I've had the vague urge to get around to someday (and possibly would have let it slip through the cracks like I do so many other series that I intend to watch/read), but your description (and omg bless you for providing links, I love the aarinfantasy forums *__*) and mention of fandom beginning to gain momentum are the magic words for me.

I cannot resist pretty + a growing fandom. *___*

(Deleted comment)
So far I've watched only the first episode, but that was enough to get me intrigued with it, because OMG NINJAS EXCELLENT. The art is really pretty, too, and I can tell I already love the main character kind of ridiculous amounts.

I don't think I'm far enough in to probably be able to recognize most of the cast (if they're even all introduced yet), but I would love the fanart links! They'd be a place to start if nothing else! ♥

(Deleted comment)
So, a week later, I have finished inhaling all of Nabari no Ou and it is all your fault but omfg so good. I'm not sure what I loved most about the series--the uber gay, the NINJA ACTION, or the pretty pretty art of the series.

But BLESS YOU for the links to getting started, I can see that the two you linked here are probably going to be my favorites (omg, both of them are stunning sites *__*) but I'm already opening, like, a million tabs.

I think Miharu is probably still my favorite character, but it surprises me how much I came to really like Yoite and I love pretty much everyone and a;sldkfjasljk how fucked up Kouichi is and how great Raimei is and I love Raikou a whole lot and OMFG Gau looks like the spitting image of Kirihara and--! *explodes*

(Deleted comment)
I really did wind up liking everyone I was supposed to like (while I thought Hattori deserved a punch in the face, I was supposed to think that, obv.), often times a whole lot more than I thought I would. It was impressive how well they balanced everyone and kept them from falling into the annoying sides of the cliche stereotypes--especially since this series did play really heavily on stereotypical character types. <3

A Few Recs


Here are some recs I have that you might like:

Hibari oneshot (can be seen as gen or 1827):

I also liked the fancomics this person did (funny and cute):
Mahou Shounen Tsu-kun:

Reborn's Ultimate Punishment:

ka-yakusoku also translated and scanned a few doujinshi. Thanks for doing both the site and livejournal.

- kix-prue

Thank you for the comments and the recs with these! I read a couple of them and asl;kjflakjs I think I might have missed them on my own, so this was seriously helpful, THANK YOU. And that 1827/gen fic has me curious now....

I'm leaving a comment to give you a D. Gray Man art rec.

I heard you like Kanda and Allen, usually in the same frames ;)


Knock yourself out. I have no idea if they're to your taste i.e. if you like this style or not, but personally I loved it. Didn't see it on your rec list but maybe I missed it if it's there. If you have seen this already then sorry, but it's really late in the UK at the moment.

Need to sleep now. Hope it's of some help!

Hello! Just wanted to let you know that I absolutely adore Fleeting Fancies, and that I've added this rec journal to keep up with updates, and I don't want you to think you have a creepy stalker. ^^; No need to add me back or comment, just...excellent job! I love your taste in fanfiction.

Ack! Only, like, a month and a half late. orz S-sorry. But hello! No one needs to say hi if they want to add me, that's what the journal is for, to either friend or just check whenever you feel like it, if you want, it doesn't matter to me. THAT SAID, of course I love meeting new people and I'm delighted that you enjoy the site, thank you! ♥

Hi there,

I have been keeping track of Fleeting Fancies for I don't exactly know how long!! Finally managed to add you :D I love your recs, so please keep up the good work. I rely on you for GOOD fics XD

So I really hope you don't mind adding me to your f list!

Thank you

Hi! And I don't mind at all, that's what the journal is here for! (Or to just check randomly if one should wish. XD) I'm glad the recs are helpful and I'm delighted to meet you! ♥

(And a;lsdfkalsk thanks for reminding me that I need to update the site. XD)

(Deleted comment)
I don't mind at all! IN FACT. O HEY MOAR RECS FOR ME TO GO THROUGH-- *starts digging through* And thank you for the One Piece rec! I've really been going for that series a lot again lately. *__*

AND READ REBORN! BECAUSE IT'S REALLY GOOD. Well, I mean. It's not the most brilliant series I've ever read, but it's like all good WJ series in that there are characters you really just want more and more and more of. Also, fandom is kind of AWESOME.

Tales of the Abyss you don't even need to play the game for anymore! (I mean, it's the best way and what I recommend first, but not everyone wants to sink 90 hours into an RPG game just to get to the fandom. XD) The manga's been coming out for awhile and the anime is on episode 9 and from what I've seen so far, it's actually been a really kickin' adaptation of the game! (And I usually hate adaptations. XD) DOOOOOOOOO IIIIIIIIIIIIIT.

you're site helped me a lot too many times I can't even count. I see you update here on LJ than on the actual site :D

Sorry for being rude but can I ask if you're accepting sort of "request" for a rec of a certain anime? Yeah I know, you won't do if you're not into the thing itself so I'll just mention some of the titles...Eureka 7, Ookiku Furikabutte, Shaman King, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann...that's about it I guess. I swear I would've done this myself if I even knew how to start googling for jap site. Sorry for bothering you D:

Then again, thank you for the hard work on your previous recs XD

Ahahahaha, oh, I really do fail at updating the site. XD I actually do work on it, I just never finish the updates, so I don't update the updates page that much. But yes! I post to this journal first and let them build up before I work on the site.

I totally take requests! I'm always happy to know what other people are into--if nothing else, it often times gives me an idea of what to watch next because... well, if it had a fanbase, that means it's probably good, right?

*curious* Are you looking for fanart more than fanfic or the other way around? I usually assume fic, but you mention getting started on Japanese sites? And, are you the type who, once you've got a starting point, you can go on your own? I ask because I could probably find, like, an Ookiku search engine or something, but I've personally only read a little past the first volume, so I can pretty much only recognize Mihashi so far. XD

And do you have any pairing preferences/squicks? That's always helpful to know, too. XD

Hi Becky! This is Varon, who wrote Violation of the Sixth Commandment. It's one of your fic recs in your Fleeting Fancies site -- which I stumbled on because *I* was looking for some YusKei fics to read. ^.^ Imagine my surprise when my own fic was on that list, lol. Just wanted to say thanks for including it in your list -- ten years from its publication, it's still gaining readers, and I thank you for that. ^_^ I'm thinking of doing a remake or spinoff of the fic, so I better keep you posted on it. Take care, and thank you again! (BTW, do you mind if I add you? ^-^)

Hi! You're welcome and I'm glad that putting it on the list got us a chance to meet--that's always one of the most fun parts of doing this. And I'm doubly glad if I could help shove a few more people your way somehow--and I would, of course, love to see you do a remake or spinoff of the fic! And, no, I don't mind being added at all, that's what the journal is here for, to either just lurk on or add for whenever I update. XD

Even if I'm terrible inconsistent about that. *shifty*

Yay -- thankies, much! ^o^ *goes ahead and adds you* If ever I finish THAT remake/spinoff, I'll be sure to send it your way. ^_~ Thanks again for keeping the YusKei love alive -- with so few supporters of the pair, it's a wonder we haven't gone extinct, lol.

Hello! I stumbled across your recs site tonight and have been marveling at the content for hours - there's just so much there!

I have a question for you, though. How do you manage to find your way around the Japanese fanart sites? Do you actually speak Japanese, or do you just sort of click around until you find what you want, or is there some way to translate them? I'd really love to know.

Thank you so much! :-)

Hi! ♥ Ahaha, I imagine that, if you're seeing the site for the first time, it must be pretty big, yeah. (Well, it ought to be after five years of this. ^_~)

As for browsing j-fanart sites, I can't read any Japanese (I can understand some spoken Japanese, but not enough to get by there, either) but it's fairly easy to get a feel for how sites are laid out. The gallery sections are frequently marked as "gallery" or "illust" in English (check the URLs a lot, too) or, when that fails, yeah, just start clicking on links until you hit the gallery section.

(You can try translating them with babelfish, but I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, it's still really hard to understand. And, well, once you figure out where the gallery is, you don't need the rest of the site translated, I assume. *g*)

Does that help?

Hey hey!

I stumbled across fleetingfancies a loooong time ago, and recently again. Im currently a big fan of Zoro/Sanji so I was searching for good fics to read. Your site had plenty (thankya for hours of fun reading), but I didnt notice fics from sabershadowcat which I think are AMAZING! In case you havent read them, I strongly recommend that you do :D


Just pick the anime&manga section hehe.

Oh and I simply loved your japanese fan art section! Some of the arts are jawdropping!

thx for all the reccin!

Hi! It's great to meet another One Piece fan, especially if I can help you find some stuff. ♥ You know, for as small as the fandom is on the English side of things, the Japanese fans have some truly amazing stuff out there and I love how much they love that pairing. (I'm totally addicted to their doujinshi for Zoro/Sanji, too. *__*)

And, oh, thank you for the heads up on the link, I'll check them out!

Oooh, the doujinshis! Have you heard of Pirate Ship Noah yet? Its my fav doujinshi of the two. Its translated by futarikiri here on LJ.

*glee* I think its also awesome to meat a fellow fan ;D

I read the first Pirate Ship Noah one awhile back, but I don't think I've gotten to the second and third ones yet--I was just looking at those and trying to decide if I should read them right now or not. (I tend to ration the things I know I'll really love. XD)

There are not nearly enough OP fans around, yes!

(Deleted comment)
hi i was wondering if you knew where i could find scans or isola vita

Late response is late, I know. orz Anyway, you can find them at miracles_may by going through the tags and finding the mangaka. As far as I'm aware, though, no one has translated them, which is too bad, since I really love her work!

Hi. I've been enjoying the fics you've recomended. Thanks for proving them.

Just thought I'd let you know, on "Fleeting Fancies" the links to the first three Angel/Northstar fics (Toronto, The Edge, Inside Out) are broken.

I came across the fics earlier at this site in case you want to fix the links.

(Yeah, I know I suck b/c I still haven't figured out how to put links in comments)

::facepalm:: What do you know, it made a link all by itself.

Hey! I just found you through some random googling of fic recs, and as I started looking at your Ouran recs I was in awe because, after a long time in the Ouran fandom, I'd read only about half of them and each one that I'd read was amazing.

So I'm about to plunge deep into all your recs ever (okay, maybe not all), but first I wanted to say thank you and that I'm adding you!
