In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.
It's difficult to even know where to start, as I hardly suppose I need to disclaim. Eventually I decided to go with a theme to make choosing easier. Or rather, a character: Melkor!
- Melkor by Lindowyn. I appreciate this photomanip because Melkor looks scary (very, very similar to how I picture him) instead of like an attractive princeling. He also looks very broody (which is also how I imagine his character).- "Strange Fire" by Dwimordene. A drabble series describing Melkor's sojourn in the south and interactions with the ancestral Haradrim. It has a very creepy-yet-sublime tone which I absolutely love. I am a total fangirl of Dwim's works about the Valar.
- "War of Wrath" by Belegur. "Melkor's capture and execution." Short and effective. I really enjoy Belegur's take on Melkor.
