Looking back/Cleaning house

Wow, a lot has changed in Lost fandom since I got on board in November '04. A lot of the writers have left or moved on. I dug up some old fic recs for zelda_zee and most of the authors aren't writing Lost anymore. Or, in some cases, have even deleted their LJs. At least some of the fic survives, if it was posted to comms.

Also, I'm sad I've let sawyerficrecs languish ... anyone want to join me in reccing over there? I think I might start a theme or pairing of the month and ask people to comment with recs. Suggestions for the first one?

I also decided to do some New Year cleaning of the flist. A lot of people I haven't talked to in a year or more, if ever. And there are still people on it I hardly speak to or hear from anymore or who just aren't on LJ much at all. Anyway, if you find mine is one of those LJs you keep scrolling past and want to take the opportunity to defriend now while I'm doing some very early spring cleaning, please go ahead. This isn't a personal thing at all, no one I'm angry with or anything like that. Just trying to keep my flist manageable and meaningful.

SCREENED WHEE!!!

*coff*

Um, okay. I still have a bunch of recs and fic in my memes from waaay back during that rec_50 thing which I know you were doing Jack/Sawyer...I may have a few Sawyer only ones, would have to look. But maybe character studies or pre-island or something as a start? I'm not really sure, but I'm willing to brainstorm and see what I have saved.

*HUGS*

Hope all is well w/ you!

Aww, yay! ;) I put up the first theme over there. Feel free to add some recs.

*mwah*

(And I figured this one was safe to leave unscreened. ;D)

I haven't been reccing as much lately, but I could definitely help with sawyerficrecs, if you're open to it.

Pairings: the obvious Jack/Sawyer, the nostalgic Sawyer/Sayid. Het: the obvious Sawyer/Kate, maybe put all the other oddballs together somehow [Sawyer/any girl who's not Kate]?

Themes: mostly all I've got are boring ones: pre-island, post-island, crossover, first kiss/encounter, cons...

Asking people to comment with recs is a great idea, actually. Usually that's a great way to discover fics that might otherwise have been overlooked.

I'd love your help! ;) I'll add you as a mod/poster/whatever, so you can post. It was set up as mostly for me to post (or approve other people's posts) but I really haven't kept it up enough.

And thanks for the ideas. I'm glad you like the idea of asking for recs. I hope to find some that I've never read.

Hello gorgeous. It's weird how the Lost fandom has sort of drifted, I know I checked out of the show when Boone died but I was looking forward to staying in touch via fic and there's really not much out there.
Which is kind of sad.

Hey there. You're right, the fic kind of died with Boone. A few people have tried to keep it going but heck, there's barely any Sawyer/Sayid anymore either. And A lot of people have just left the fandom all together. And I can't blame them. When the mainstream press mostly refers to Lost as "frustrating," instead of "addictive," well, there you go.
