I'm not sure whether this is where this topic should be or not, but does anybody happen to know what happened to the OC!fanfic "Zirakon (Memory)"? It was utterly fantastic (centered around nation!tan Israel and his long history), but when I tried looking here (and even when I tried doing a Google and Wayback search on it), it has completely disappeared. Literally, the only surviving mention of the fic's existance is one I made in my "Kingdom of Heaven" review. Does anyone have a backup copy they'd let me read? Anybody? Help?

(Reader's Summary) An AU set somewhere in a slight conservative pocket of Southern California, Matthew is a bassist for a band he doesn't want to be in, and plays the violin on the side.

I've noticed lately that there are a LOT of fics here that were recommended anonymously. This is against the rules, and according to the main fanfic rec page, these stories are supposed to be deleted.

However, some of these anonymous recs are pretty good, and I'd hate to see them removed from the site. So what should we do?

I would be fine with adding my name to the "recommended by" line on the stories I approve (even though I wasn't the one who added them in the first place), but I'm not willing to put my name on ALL of the anonymous recs. Would other tropers be willing to help out and do the same on their favorites?

Should we put some sort of (temporary?) announcement on the pages themselves? Something to remind people that they can't rec fics anonymously. Perhaps a notice that "In X amount of time, any fic that has not been recommended by a troper will be deleted"?

Thoughts? Comments? Ideas?

Can I recommend this AU fic, The Piano Hall?

It's from the same continuity as The Personal Records of a Doctor.
01:31:47 PM Oct 11th 2011
Be Bold, dude.

If others disagree, they're welcome to add their own dissenting views to the appropriate tab.
06:29:30 PM Oct 11th 2011
I'll let you in on something. It's actually mine. So is it still ok?
02:12:14 PM Oct 12th 2011
Oh, in that case, no. Sorry, no self-recs. This page is a service for readers, not authors.

With luck, though, someone else might deem it good enough to add at some point.
12:07:29 AM Oct 13th 2011
Thanks for the advice!

In any case, feel free to check it out anyway! :D

Why is Act Natural under Dark Fics shouldn't it be under pairings?
12:00:26 AM Jun 3rd 2011
Moved! :3

I have this one fanfiction called Asunder

Now would it be under the shipping folder or the crack pairings trope for Hetalia?
05:50:05 PM May 9th 2011
Sorry, let me try again:

Asunder -

Pairing: South Italy/Latvia

Synopsis: Raivis will do anything to escape from Ivan. Even to go far as running off with a complete stranger. But what happens when that stranger is Romano?

Comments: Despite it's crack pairing and how both characters had never even meet in canon, this fanfic is a pretty interesting read. However there some sights of OC-ness with Romano and somewhat Flanderization with Russia. But still - something that you keep watch.

Anybody think we should add a new folder for "Dark Fic?" The description for "General Fics" does say 'friendly relationships,' after all.

08:39:09 PM Feb 25th 2011
Yes. That should happen.
07:42:38 PM Mar 20th 2011
Yes, that would be nice :)

I haven't read Seven Little Killers yet, as Dark Fic isn't really my thing and I prefer my America/Japan to be fluffy, but I decided that I'd probably get around to reading it someday.

Then, while doing a Google search on for Greece/Japan fics, I came across one search result that pointed to a review for Seven Little Killers that mentioned America killing Greece and mailing his remains to Japan.


Please tell me that this Makes Sense In Context and is not a case of Greece being made to Die for Our Ship or America falling victim to Character Derailment or Ron the Death Eater (I know enough about the fic's concept to see how it might have been necessary for him to kill Greece, but MAILING HIS CORPSE TO JAPAN PERSONALLY? What the Hell, Hero??).
07:48:30 AM Mar 23rd 2011
It all makes sense in context.
06:58:32 PM Jan 7th 2013
edited by ranichi17
And it's also a case of Die for Our Ship, since apparently, the authors are hinting at an Amepan relationship to the fact that America chose to save Japan over his brother

Does A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes really need to be recced twice, both under general fics and shipping fics? Where should it be kept?
10:10:48 AM May 23rd 2010
Leave it under Gen fics, since the pairing isn't the main focus.
