Of course, anyone is welcome to join in, even if you and I don't usually agree on pairings or hang out in the same circles. I'd like that, actually, to get a bit of variety going. Please don't feel shy or unwanted around here. ♥
Please link to the author's work (you don't have to stick to any of the major archives, anywhere is fine), include relevant information (pairing, author, maybe any non-work-safe ratings if you feel up to it), and there is no time limit, this post will stand for as long as LJ is around.
If you only feel like filling out part of the meme, that's fine as well, but please don't fill each one out more than once (please feel free to do the one for each series, though!), since I'm aiming for what you consider your absolute favorites of fandom. Also, please don't recommend your own work, this meme is about the fic you liked from other people, I want to know what you like in others' work!
