Slashy Nominations 2: Attack of the Small Fandoms  
FF That Proves the Fic Author Should Have Written the Canon, Too, Except I Don't Think She Could've Talked George Clooney and Brad Pitt into Doing Some of This Stuff: Confidence Men, by Dorinda. Ocean's 11, Danny Ocean/Rusty Ryan. As soon as I got to the five-pieces-of-mail scene, my jaw hit the floor and stayed there for the duration of the fic. This is one of the few pieces of slash I've read that fit so perfectly into the canon (at least in my mind) that I've melded the two – this fic is another set of deleted scenes to me, and always will be.

Best FF That Should Destroy Treasured Childhood Memories but Somehow Doesn't: Summer's Men, by Kest. Dark Is Rising series, Will/Bran. (Yes, I've mentioned this one before, but I don't care. Some fics just deserve our unwholesome worship, and there's nothing we can do but give it.) I started this fully intending to feel righteous indignation and ended up only feeling that Kest got it just right. From now on, this is grown up Will and Bran for me.

FF with the Best Slash Names Ever: Telemachos, or The Genealogy of Buggery, by Resonant. Horatio Hornblower book slash, Hornblower/Longley. Did Forester plan these names - hell, these books - to be this slashy? Probably not. Those were sad, repressed times, people.

Best FF That's Really a YA Novel, Only Better and Dirtier Than Most, Not That I Think YAs Would Mind: Void, by Wax Jism*. The Faculty, Zeke/Casey/Delilah. This fic is brutal and sexy and strange. Just like adolescence.

Well, the whole Razzy thing, that'd require me to find bad FF, right?

Oh I just thought you could work with the bad FF you've come across, the number of which I assume is legion. Such is the nature of the fanfic beast. Actually I'm not that interested in the badfics themselves, but rather your very witty remarks.

I would even name a special Slashy award after you, except I think that counts more as an insult than a motivator.

That depends on the name of the award, doesn't it? But I'll take anything. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make icons and I don't know where to find slashy ones. The 6th Element makes great icons. If you ask her I think she'll make you one. But if you just want regular icons, I've listed some icon commmunities below (check the communities' memories section for their archives). Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

takenote_icons, basicbases, aesthetic_icons, opalnecklace

arwen_elvenfair makes lovely LOTR icons.
