Top 5 fanfic authors of all time? Favourite fic by each of those and why? What are your top 5 fics of all time? Or top 10 if you can't narrow it down any more. You're either my first or second favourite fanfic author ever and my top five fics of yours (in no order) are 'Snake, Wolf', 'reverse', 'Stormborn', 'glitter and gold' and (currently; the fifth changes) 'my bones'. I adore 'Cry Havoc 2' but it's painful to read (in a good way) so I don't read it often and 'Bite' will be up there soon too.

I woke up this morning to a long, detailed comment on Sailing By Orion’s Star and honestly not much gets me smiling before coffee, but THAT certainly did. Blessed are those who leave comments like that, for they shall make the author smile at 7 am.
this is a stressful question because i feel like i will hurt people’s feelings who follow me but who i haven’t listed? and because there are lots of people who are good authors but who dont often write my pairings etc etc and also i haven’t been actively reading hamilton fic for the past few months because i got really fucking tired of wading through the AO3. so instead i will say five fics that i’ve gone back to reread more than once:
1. as mentioned in one of my other answers, the Ghosthunters AU (by fourteenacross on here, pockyslash on AO3) is my favourite. it’s a modern Lams AU set in a world where the paranormal is a (generally) accepted scientific field which the guys are studying at college. it’s great, i have drawn like 3 different fanarts for it already.the link above is for ao3 but you should follow the authors tumblr because she writes a billion prompts and snippets set in that verse, all of which are great too.
3. the shady springs of mount vernon by wingedwolf121. another hilarious one. the hamsquad accidentally read one of washington’s personal letters to his wife. one of the best fics ive read for getting the balance of period-voice and musical-voice in their dialogue, which is something i wish i saw more of.
4. bound together by triedunture. a rare genfic utilising the ‘we’ve been handcuffed together’ trope for burr and alexander and gets both of their characters down perfectly.
5. go bid the waves be still by agent_orange, which i feel is like, THE elams fic that everyone knows but thats because it’s really good and makes my bi/poly little heart happy.
Hmmm. Most authors I tend to read one book or series as opposed to like, all of their works, but here we go. No particular ranking on these.
1. Anne Rice (before she went back to Christianity… not to be Mean, but when she was a lost Atheist she wrote better) 2. Margaret Atwood (I’ve read “The Handmaid’s Tale” and I intend to read some of her other works, but that one is A+) 3. Nathaniel Hawthorne (I love what he does with guilt and ambiguity) 4. Sylvia Plath (she only wrote one novel, “The Bell Jar,” but it is amazing and her poetry is life changing) 5. JK Rowling (how can I not include her?)
oh hey chanty! I should probably leave it in the reviews but just read your story on Ffn and wow!! I loved it. You're honestly like top 5 romanogers authors imo maybe even the best lol I love how you executed the prompt given to you and like the dialogue and how detailed you are in terms of imagery lol I could honestly picture all of those things happening in my mind! Ugh you're really the best lol. Thanks for posting it cuz i need my romanogers badly at this point in time haha so thanks 😂
I totally read this the other night when you sent it and forgot to reply until now but thank you, darling! I’m glad you liked it! I had a lot of fun with that one.
As promised, the Draco/Harry fic rec starter kit thanks to this wonderful anon who requested this and this wonderful anon who encouraged it. This was actually surprisingly difficult simply because there were so many fics, which is why I’ve included a bonus link at the bottom to a post made by danger-skies who did a top 5 drarry meme and included some quotes and links that I found gorgeous. I haven’t read any of the fics there, so I didn’t include it on the list, but definitely advise checking that out too cause I know I am going to. There are roughly 30 fics here, all complete, all beautifully written and really excellent fics. My favourites are marked with an asterisk (*), and I do advise reading those first. Companion Fic Rec Starter Kit to my Stucky, Stucky (Favourites), 00Q, Johnlock, Merthur, Jercy, Percico+Jaisco, Spiderflash, Spirk, FrostIron,Larry Stylinson,Gallavich, McSummers and Nick/Monroe ones. All fics are below the cut, and happy reading you all!
Hey there, guys! Hope you're all good, thanks for doing so amazing job with the account :) I've read like almost all the fics you've recced and I came to think you surely have some fav authors? Please, share your top 5 authors with us.
I’m sure that once this rec is posted I remember authors that I forgot to rec, but whatever! This is the top five authors I could come up on a whim and whose fics I think I’ve recced many times in this blog! I don’t really have any real reason why I picked these authors, just that they’ve written more than one of my fav fics and their writing is mostly (always) up to par! – Admin A

Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Admin A’s notes: This is by far my fav fic from aileenrose and it’s also one of my fav fics of all time. I’m pretty sure me and Admin J have both recced this enough time here that I don’t need to get into this more!
Summary: Dean’s determined not to stay in one place for long–he’s enjoying his new-found freedom too much.
Castiel might be the one to make him stick around.
Admin A’s notes: I don’t think this came as a surprise to anyone judging by the amount of fics I’ve recced from this author. Also this particular fic has made it to my top five fics of all time. I mean disabled Dean and volunteer Cas, it’s like a perfect match!
Summary: Dean Winchester was twenty-six years old when a car accident killed his father and left him paralysed from the waist down. A year and a half later, Dean is wheelchair-bound and living in a care home in Kansas, where he spends his days waiting to die. It’s only when Castiel Novak starts volunteering at the care home that Dean starts to wonder if a changed life always equals a ruined one.
Admin A’s notes: I think this author along with Valinde is one of our most recced authors. Everything she writes is pure gold and this fic is no exception!
Summary: Human AU. Dean Winchester teaches a third-grade class. He’s new to this whole ‘bisexual’ thing - but by pure happenstance, he meets Castiel: a particularly dapper male librarian who moonlights as a substitute teacher. Dean’s curious and Castiel is willing, so why the hell not?
Except, fate never intended it to be one-time-only…
Admin A’s notes: I had such hard time picking out my fav from this author. I mean everything she writes is awesome and it doesn’t help that she has like 95 SPN fanfics on her belt. I’m not sure if this is really my fav of hers but it’s awesome and I couldn’t think anything else of hers to rec at the moment!
Summary: Castiel is a young teacher, just settling in to his first job. On a night out with colleges, he meets an attractive, green-eyed stranger and has a one-night stand with him. In the morning the man is gone and Castiel never expects to see him again. The man did leave him with a parting gift though; Castiel is pregnant. He decides to keep the baby and raise it alone.
Then, on parents evening, he meets the man again and discovers he’s Dean Winchester, the guardian of one of Castiel’s students. Dean is raising his younger brothers after his father died in a car accident. For most people, that would be enough responsibility but Dean is delighted to discover he’s going to be a dad. Castiel finds himself falling for Dean and the future they could build together.
It’s always nice to rec your own favorites, even though, just like Admin A did before, I also gotta say I’m pretty sure after reccing these I remember more awesome authors and I start to re-think my choices. Always so hard to put these in order. Before listing anything I want to point out I read a lot fics from different authors and there are so many authors I like very much, so it was pretty hard to pick up just five. – Admin J
1. Valinde (Valyria)
Author: Valinde (Valyria)
Words: 65,240 – Finished
Admin’s assessment: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Admin J’s notes: You gave me an excuse to rec this again! There’s no questioning about which one is my favorite from this author. She’s such an amazing writer and all her stories are well-written with a great plot. I’m never disappointed when I pick up her stories.
Summary: In a world where people don’t see in color until they find their true mate, the first thing Dean sees when he pulls himself out of his grave is the blue sky. When Castiel raised him from the Pit, he inadvertently claimed Dean as his mate.
Admin J’s notes: You all thought I was going to rec the Path of Fireflies, didn’t you? Hah! I’m full of surprises. And because I already recced Grey I just could’t rec another one of those fics I always rec. This is a shorter one from museaway, but everything she writes is good, so it doesn’t matter.
Summary: Despite Zeke’s threats, Dean doesn’t tell Cas to leave the bunker. He revels in their burgeoning relationship, content to end his day with Cas asleep on his shoulder, even if they’ll always sleep in separate rooms. Cas is it for him. But when Cas begins to experience physical urges he can’t control, he asks Dean for a hand—metaphorically, and later, literally.
Admin J’s notes: I know it’s not Christmas season anymore but I just have to rec this fic from lastknownwriter. It’s so epic! This author is one of those I always pick up if there’s a situation where I’m in between to fics and can’t choose which one I’m going to read.
Summary: On a cold and lonely Christmas Eve, a tipsy Dean Winchester dropped a letter to Santa in his mailbox at the mall.
J’s notes: thepinupchemist is my all time favorite, I think. I haven’t
read anything she has written that isn’t good and I really lover her way
to write. It’s smooth, funny, emotional and she knows how to work with
her plots. If you want something good to read, just click into her
profile and pick something.
Summary: Castiel has been friends
with Dean Winchester for almost ten years. He’s wanted Dean to be his
mate for just as long. When the company Christmas party demands that
Castiel take a date, he begs Dean to pretend to romantically involved
with him, if only for a night. Things do not go as planned.
omg so there are so many brilliant writers in every fandom, and i’m not gonna try and even bother to pick 5 tbh, SO, instead, i’ll just say a bit about 2 malec fics that i adore at the moment:
Set Me In Motion by lemonoclefoxaka the cutest, sweetest, tenderest fic ever, that’ll make you smile, feels (x10000) and then leave you feeling on cloud 10. The plot is that Magnus and Alec meet at Magnus’ apartment after Alec has to wait around for his boyfriend to return, and their friendship becomes something else. (but there is zero cheating, it’s all respectful and honest). It’s also characterised perfectly and captures romance in a refreshingly earnest way.
Under New Management by highwarlockkareenais AMAZING. The fic’s plot is unique and will really keep you hooked from the first chapter. It has so many sweet moments, and makes me smile so much, and the side characters are all interwoven perfectly. The story is a ‘what if’ when the downworlders take down Valentine on their own, and the story really explores the power shifts and the consequences of it. It’s very well thought out and the sexual tension is just adjfkfll, goodbyeeee.
