In your own space, rec at least three fanworks that you think would make a good intro into XYZ fandom. Rec a fandom overview, a introductory picspam, stories that define and shape the fandom. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. If at all possible, try to pick a smaller or rarer fandom, one that maybe doesn't have the following you feel it should.

... yes, I am totally doing the [livejournal.com profile] ricstar fandom, because I might need this in the future. Because everyone should read/write Ric/Star!

First up: there is a (slightly dated but still mostly relevant) ship manifesto for Rictor and Shatterstar.

As far as Tumblrs go, Fuck Yeah Ricstar is the motherload of Ric and Star scans, the occasional fic, and fanart. This is the most recent piece of fanart I fell in love with (ricstar elves ahhh). This one gets posted a lot, with good reason -- they look so handsome in stylish clothing! Or, oh! This college AU one!

There used to be a tonne of vids, but most have been deleted. But Starry-Eyed remains a favourite, and I hold out hope that someone starts making ricstar vids again. Oh, also Growing Up is great -- it's not only Ric and Star, but all of the New Mutants and X-Force.

Fic-wise, a lot of the older stuff has shown up on AO3. There are only 98 stories there, so I recommend every single one of them! (Two are in Russian -- I google-translated them and read them). One that is definitely missing is Hand Jive by Te. I still chuckle whenever I think of Star saying, "Oh, Ric, yes, the pain is of an entirely new and pleasurable variety!"

Well, look at it this way: you rec me 98 stories, I put those down my priority list, in "fics I may read someday, when i'll be all caught up with X-Force, maybe."

You rec me one fic, and I open it in a folder or download it and will probably read it whithin the next couple of months.
