RR -- Small Fandoms

Even though we already have a couple of small fandom RR posts, they're several months old and I'm hoping a fresh one will spark new recs.   Remember, any fandom (no matter how large it is in the world at large) is counted as small at ER if there are fewer than five recs posted for that fandom in this comm.  This means, for example, Star Wars, individual Star Trek franchises, The X-Files, and Supernatural all count as small fandoms while Jeeves & Wooster and Sports Night do not.  Check out our tags page or our delicious account to see which fandoms are eligible.  (When in doubt, feel free to rec -- we won't complain.)

Personally, I'm really looking forward to a bunch of reasons why Star Wars and Star Trek TOS should be getting more recs.  And if anyone has some 'Sam and Dean really aren't brothers and thus them getting together isn't really incest at all' recs, I will love you forever:)

Things to keep in mind:
-Recced stories can be any length, any fandom, and any pairing, as long as they fit the theme
-You don't need to write a review (unless you want to). All that you need to include are title, author, and link to the story (all parts if there are more than one).

That said, have at it!

i'm not sure how many mag7 recs you've managed thus far, but i'm taking the opportunity to present 'My Name is Legion', by Sarah B.

it's 1009k, broken up into several parts, so it's unsurprising that every so often there's a formatting error in the text - but it's far less often than one might suppose in a giant this size, and doesn't interfere with the readability at all.

there's no summary on the index page, but it was brought up in response to a request for fics where Chris beats up JD; in my not so humble opinion, this story deals effectively and realistically with the potential outcomes of such an episode, and manages to keep your interest the whole way.

the link to the index page (it's divided into 3 parts of 3, 8, and 19 chapters respectively) is:


happy reading!

Wow. Wow! Thank you! (Out of curiosity, is it gen/slash/het? And if there is a pairing, what pairing is it?)

oh, sorry - it's gen. although honestly, i think it would suffer if someone 'slashified' it, so i think it's perfect the way it is.

Exactly what I hoped to hear, thanks!
