Fanwork Appreciation Day
So it’s apparently Fanwork Appreciation Day in big bold letters and I don’t know where to start omg. I could just link the entire Stormpilot/Jedistormpilot tag on ao3 since that would probably be easier. Like there’s so much good work out there, so many fics that I always think about and come back to. So I’m going to try and list my continuing fave authors (and an artist!) on here, but I’m pretty sure I’ll end up forgetting somebody at some point.
I suppose the first one is obviously @animalasaysrauer or TuppingLiberty on ao3. Just about everything she touches turns into something incredible, but her Organa’s Organics series is so long and heartfelt and incredible. Idk how she got me with a farming au but she got me.
@beautifullights1 is honestly the best commenter you want on a fic, but anyway. The everyone has scars series keeps tricking me into rereading bits and pieces of it again and again. Like it accidentally became a permanent fixture in my ever growing Stormpilot library and I don’t know how it got there or when but it’s there now and it’s never leaving.
@nekosmuse is hard to forget because she showed up like in the middle of the year like a whirlwind just like “SHOW ME EVERYTHING” and then she started writing and Superluminal Motion ruined my life. I’ve been waiting for a really good “Finn gets reconditioned in the FO again” fic and WOW this is it this is everything omg.
@cha-llamala aka QianLan is a difficult mess because EVERYTHING is so good and she writes so so so so much and it’s all SO good like I’m here for every second of it. Okay here just go read Bound (handcuffed together) and Kill Shot (assassin turns bodyguard) and Magic (werecreature soulmate thing ????) and just get back to me when you can okay. I think about these ALL the time. Just. Okay.
@imaginarygolux … AHHHHHHHHHH okay there’s a lot. there’s a whole lot. it’s okay. I would be absolutely lying if I said I didn’t remember her solely as the author of the Fractured Fairy Tale AU’s which is exactly what it sounds like but there’s also Morning Glories about all sorts of morning sex and Life Debt about a life debt duh and The Emperor and his Consort omg and and Like Attracts Like where they can’t get too far from one another and and seriously, read everything.
@topographical-map-of-utah is another one of my fave authors that I accidentally found on tumblr one day (yay) but I don’t know where to start. Go read the Along Came Baby series which is a modern baby au and the first fic is so good honestly but anyway go read that to start off with and then read all the others and then we’ll talk. Oh oh and Catch of the Day about mer!Poe. It’s a wip but AHHHHHHHHHHHH etc.
There are so many great works that are stand alones or by authors that I don’t know. It would take a few days for me to make a whole new rec list of amazing fics because there’s so many. What I listed here is from people that I know are on tumblr, people who are awesome and deserve all the love in the world. I know there’s a lot of people out there that I know on tumblr and ao3 but I don’t realize that they’re the same person or something???? that happens a lot. So if I had the time to do research and include everyone, I would. So thank you to all the authors and artists and folks out there who MAKE these incredible things FOR FREE just all the time and are absolutely great people. Also, equally important, a big thank you to all of the consumers of said fics and art and what not, to all the commenters and leavers of kudos, we love you.
AHHHHH I love you all okay I’m done.
