you know i have impeccable taste  
In a fit of madness and possibly awesomeness, inksplotched, likeserendipity and I present:

atasteof! A Taste of Everything, a Multi-Fandom Recs Community.

A Taste of Everything will feature recs from a variety of fandoms with a variety of pairings and genres -- emphasis on (you guessed it) variety. Right now we're a team of three -- inksplotched will be reccing for Harry Potter, likeserendipity's in charge of Twilight and I'm your rep for Doctor Who. About 2-3 recs will be posted per week per fandom.

We're also looking to expand our fandomy horizons, so if you'd like to represent a fandom, or even suggest a fic in any fandom, let us know! We're particularly interested in finding people for the following fandoms:

  • The Office -- hurrah, miss_mishi!
  • Gossip Girl
  • Merlin
  • Supernatural
  • Battlestar Galactica
  • Narnia -- welcome aboard sensations!

...but if you're interested in another, feel free to apply here!

Watch us, apply, suggest a fic or simply look around.

Your Twilight tag is win. Also, your pimping post is better than mine.

My Twilight tag and my Torchwood tag (Torchwood: Failing Since 1879) are probably my two favourites, LRL

I'd love to rec for office fic though I really only read whole-cast gen office fic or funny ship fic, nothing angsty or serious. Maybe I'll just suggest some.

hahaha ok! when I get home. I'm in NYC right now at a superbowl party at my house so when I get back to school I'll apply. Or I'll work on the application on the train or something.

Weeeell we say varied, but there's still definitely going to be some personal preference playing a role, so that'd be fine. WE COUD BE REC BUDDIES OMG

Are you doing NewWho and ClassicWho as well? Sometimes I think that good ClassicWho plot/characterization falls by the wayside and it would be nice to see some ClassicWho pimpage. ClassicWho is the jamz!
Kali_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 12:38 am (UTC)
I'm not opposed to ClassicWho, really, and if I read something and paritcularly like it I'll rec it, but I must admit that since I've never seen the old series, I don't have a good judge of characterisation/etc, and I read considerably less classic Who fiction. If someone wanted to give me some suggestions, or even just take that on as a genre, that'd be cool.
nothing but the rainwild_sibyl on February 2nd, 2009 12:54 am (UTC)
Okay. Well I might apply to be a ClassicWho reccer than. I'm currently a little obsessed with Classic and I have a file folder of ClassicWho favorites. The only place that recs ClassicWho stuff is Calufrax and sometimes... well sometimes I don't like Calufrax. (I don't want to infringe upon your Who terriotory though).

I'm still thinking about starting an ontd_who comm too... I just have to find the time to be funny. Ha.
inksplotched on February 2nd, 2009 01:06 am (UTC)
ontd comms usually end up killing the funny. :/ just saying. i was in the middle of that twilight disaster.

anyways you should shove classic recs at kali, lirl.
Kali: doctordonna friends_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 01:22 am (UTC)
Yeah I've checked Calufrax a few times but never very frequently, plus I want to rec stuff on lj too, not just Teaspoon (and not just LJ). If you don't wanna do it regularly you can either just send me good'uns you find or be a sort of guest-reccer or whatever!

I have to admit that inksplotched does make a fair point about ontd comms. Idk.
nothing but the rain: who | squishwild_sibyl on February 2nd, 2009 01:39 pm (UTC)
But look! you just got recced on Calufrax, which is kind of funny since we were just talking about it. And maybe I'll just suggest good classic stuff to you when I come across it, because it's often few and far between and I haven't been reading as much fic lately as I usually do.

And yeah it is a fair point, maybe starting an ontd site isn't such a fantastic idea. I probably don't need another reason to spend any more time on lj. And that is the truth.

Ooh, this looks awesome. Kind of makes me wish I could focus on more than one fandom at a time since I don't think I'm currently able to fully appreciate all it has to offer. I mean, Harry Potter and I had a falling out around book 6 and we haven't ever fully recovered.

When do you start posting? :D
Kali: better with two_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 01:14 am (UTC)
Ohhh I'm pretty one-fandom-minded as well -- I'm familiar with Twilight and once-upon-a-timeI was very into Harry Potter, but... well I don't even need to tell you what I'm most focused on at the moment.

First two recs are up! Whee!

Say, I've got a friend who's way into Merlin-fic and who might just be perfect for this. I'm gonna pimp it to her just for the hell of it.
Kali_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 01:22 am (UTC)

I've never seen Merlin but I know it's ~the new thing~, so.
Ing: hee! [donna]hysteriagalore on February 2nd, 2009 01:35 am (UTC)
From what I've gathered it's pro-"boy on boy" and one of the actresses looks like Kiera Knightley?!

IDK MAN but suddensmiles has impeccable taste and is freakishly intelligent so I trust her judgement. It makes me look good. :D
Kali_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 01:39 am (UTC)
LOL PRETTY MUCH WHAT I KNOW, TOO. Except I haven't noticed Keira Knightley. My knowledge boils down to "LOL kid from Midnight!" and I just imagine it kind of like ... Hogwarts. rofl

Oh sure if she's interested she can pop on over 'n fill out our little.. thingy (which is mostly just to make sure she's not going to rec like... FF.net script-style songfic.)

Ing: approve of this! [ten]hysteriagalore on February 2nd, 2009 09:28 am (UTC)
Hahaa oh I can now add "In the land of studio magical England: Dragons are father figures, Giles wears a crown and Gwen sings opera" to my pseudo-knowledge of Merlin. AWESOME.

I told her to check it out if she has the time :)

LOL, way to promote Twilight fail? *laughs* Here you go from thinking RPF is weird, to writing DW fic yourself, and actively promoting the utilisation of the Gossip Girl cast. I am amused.
Kali_thirty2flavors on February 2nd, 2009 12:12 pm (UTC)
Well, I still DO think RPF is weird. And ... ...actually I have no idea what Gossip Girl has to do with anything, LIRL, we just listed the big/popular fandoms, doesn't mean I like 'em.

Ooh, awesome. I love rec communities, especially when they're multi-fandom!

Yay! Enjoy!
