All fandoms and all types of fanworks are welcome, as well as rec requests for canons or for certain tropes, as long as it's woman-centric.

Feel free to self rec.

 Every year for halfamoon I put together a list of my favourite lady-centric fanvids published the previous year.  Here’s a list of 32 fanvid recs from 2015, in SO MANY fandoms. (Apologies for how last minute this is)

(crossposted to livejournal and tumblr)

everything in its right place )

Got asked for yuri recs on Tumblr, and, wouldn't you know, it's [community profile] halfamoon season. Good timing.

I went for series where the yuri is a main focus of the story (so, not Sailor Moon), where the f/f attraction is explicit and unambiguous (so, not Madoka Magica), and where said attraction is more than one-sided (so, not Tokyo Mew Mew or Cardcaptor Sakura).

These aren’t in order by most- to least-favorite or anything, just my top 5 overall….

[personal profile] jelazakazone
I have a picspam, a vid, a few podfics, and two fics to rec.

Evil Queen picspam from Once Upon a Time  by [personal profile] chloris 

The Girl in the Tower is a collaborative project for [community profile] pod_together that [personal profile] susan_voight and I did.  It's a Merlin story with Mtihian and Morgana set in a Firefly 'verse. I wrote the story and she recorded it. (Rated PG and 5Kish words)

Your place: podfic [personal profile] justhuman wrote this delightfully kinky Firefly Kaylee/Inara story and I podficced it. (rated Explicit)

Post-its of a Life Well loved: podfic This is a Warehouse 13 story that [archiveofourown.org profile] mjduncan wrote from Claudia's POV, but it's all about Myka/HG. (rated mature)

Intoxicating Combination  this is an Underworld fic I wrote for a kink bingo square for feathers/fur/leather/silk.  Explicit. About 800 words
[livejournal.com profile] fleete wrote this amazing fic, The Shoemaker, for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays .  It's a Freya/Gwen fic and just wonderful. (Explicit, about 23K words)

Finally, [personal profile] sophinisba made a wonderful vid of kick ass women in Merlin which you can find here.

(Mods, can I have a tag for "Underworld" and "Once Upon a Time" fandoms? Thanks!)

chaila: Diana SWORDFIGHTING in a BALLGOWN. (mary poppins)

I made two things for [community profile] halfamoon this year, which I posted to the LJ comm. In case you missed them and might be interested, here they are!

VID: Tightrope [Mary Poppins] - Dancing has long been forbidden for its subversive effects on the residents and its tendency to lead to illegal magical practices.

TV REC: A post about Borgen (including a bit of meta and a mini picspam) - Borgen is a Danish drama about Denmark's first female Prime Minister, Birgitte Nyborg. It's well-written, well-acted and just flat-out good TV. And even better, it has multiple amazing women!
kiki_eng: Laena Geronimo of The Like playing violin (Laena playing violin)
[personal profile] kiki_eng
This might be a complete list of all of the female-centric fanworks I've ever created. The recs include art, fic, vids, picspams, meta, and primers - mostly the first three.

Fandoms: Bandom [Fic & Recs]; Bomb Girls [Fic]; Disney RPF [Recs]; DCU [Recs]; Doctor Who [Recs]; Girls with Slingshots [Podfic]; Harry Potter [Recs]; Lost in Austen [Fic]; Merlin [Recs]; Mulan [Recs]; Sailor Moon [Recs]; Sherlock [Rec]; St. Trinian's [Fic]; SGA [Recs]; Star Trek [Rec]; Multifandom [Recs & Meta]

I do a monthly reclist included in my media recap over at anothercoast.wordpress.com if you're interested in the full(er) list. For this selection I primarily went with true gen, femslash, and het that truly focused on the women. Hope you enjoy! (Note: I've tried to warn where prudent, but please also note any content warnings at the source.)

27 fandoms, many fic. Sorry for any format errors. I have a fever! )

Hello! I loved the idea of this comm, so I combed my favourites for great female-character-centric fics.

Fandom: Harry Potter
  • Ginny-centric fics, more or less categorized because I’m obsessive that way XD. I hope you don’t mind all of these are Harry/Ginny, since it’s my OTP (and most of what I read XD). All One-shots unless stated.
Two really old fics that stay amazing )

Two angsty ficlets )

Two adventure/mystery fics )

Three humour/crack fics (I'm not responsible of) )

Four DH Missing Moments (chronologically because see above) )

  • Fics about other HP female characters:
McGonagall fic and Hedwig fic )

Other fandoms:
  • Harry Potter/Discworld crossover
Professional duties by [livejournal.com profile] owlyscribblings | PG
Susan Sto Helit has a job to do. [Susan, McGonagall, Harry]
Characters: Susan, McGonagall, Harry [genfic]
Genre: Jossed AU, drama
Rec: Short and awesome. Also slightly Jossed.
  • Danny Phantom
Girl Power by Nylah-Fae | PG
"She kept expecting him to walk right in, smiling that goofy smile of his, act like nothing happened, like he hadn't scared her witless with his disappearing act." 

Characters: Sam Manson, Valerie Gray
Ship: Danny/Sam
Genre: action/adventure
Rec: Written as a companion to a fanart that’s no longer there, an action and adventure fic with a side of character study and some intriguing concepts.
  • Spider-Man (movie!verse)
Just a Face On a Train by katheryne | PG
After rescuing a train from Doc Ock's attack, Peter Parker found himself unmasked and indebted to those he had just saved. 4 months later, a train passenger again crosses paths with the young hero. Based on events from SpiderMan 2.

Characters: OC, Peter Parker [genfic]
Length: 5 chapters, complete
Genre: character study, adventure
Rec: This is a remarkable story in that the main character is an OFC, one of the passengers on the train Spider-man saved. A wonderful outsider-POV look at Peter, and proof that OC stories don’t mean Mary Sue.

I'm usually not a fan of posting to comms, but since this celebration is about to close I figured it wouldn't hurt to share some recs I've posted in my journal over the past few weeks.

12 femslash recs from Doctor Who, Glee, Leverage, and Merlin.

2 Doctor Who femslash recs.

7 female-centric Star Trek recs.
[identity profile] streussal.livejournal.com
The Vampire Diaries tv series is definitely the fandom I've been most involved with over the last year. (Note: "Involved" actually means "obsessed".) So here's a list of most of the female-centred fanworks I enjoyed from 2010. Basically everything I remembered to bookmark. Fifty-three in all: one fanmix, two picspams, seven videos, and fourty-three fics if I counted correctly. (I was originally going to pare it down, but then there were just so many! So if I like it, it's probably in here.)

"Lady-centric", for the purposes of this post, is not just limited to works that focus entirely on one or more female characters. It means that the female character gets a greater proportion of the focus/characterization (maybe a few that are 50/50), and isn't just there as a prop for some guy's emotions.

Vampires and Witches and Doppelgangers, Oh My! )

Here are 4 vid recs: these are vids that I keep coming back to watch again and again because they are so awesome.

Harbor by [livejournal.com profile] kaydeefalls
Merlin, Gwen.
Sail your seas, meet your storm, all I want is to be your harbor.

I'm Not Dead by [livejournal.com profile] dualbunny.
Battlestar Galactica, Kara Thrace.
Underneath the ink of my tattoo, I've tried to hide my scars from you. I'm not scared, just changing.

Stray Italian Greyhound by [livejournal.com profile] kaydeefalls
Doctor Who, Amy Pond.
What do I do with a love that won't sit still?

Run with Me by [livejournal.com profile] chaila43
Doctor Who, River Song.
It's okay by me, it was a long time ago.
