In your own space, 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. A bit of Rope
I usually dislike AU's especially when warned they are darker than the original,but this was utterly gripping and convincing. I cannot praise it too highly.
2.A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes by Tanis
I dislike Legolas stories as I find him rather boring and usually avoid young Legolas stories like the plague. However, I enjoyed this one and found it very moving.
3.Season of Hope by Keiliss
I've read "The Simarillion" only once mainly to learn about Aragorn's ancestors, but I don't usually seek out "Simarillion" stories. This was recommended to be by a friend and I loved it and also had the pleasure of getting to know the author as result!
