I've been waiting a month to use that title :D

Oh, Rectober! What a month it was. So full of bounteous recs in so many fandoms, pairings, genres and lengths. Some people managed to do it daily. Others just the once. THEY WERE ALL BEAUTIFUL. \o/ Each one a little poem of love for a creator, a little signpost in the dark for a lost reader looking for a happy place to go. ♥

Thank you to each and every reccer, for each and every rec! The divine [livejournal.com profile] capitu has made you a little token of appreciation, from all of us readers. And she even did the coding for me, because she is a true Hufflepuff. Please find them below, clutch them to your bosoms, grab the html and display on your journals with pride.

If you're looking for recs, why not browse the journals of those who took part. See the amazing list below. Many of them have a Rectober tag, to make your life easier, so you can get straight to the good stuff.

And if you didn't manage to take part in Rectober this year, don't forget that recs are loved all year round. ♥

Take a bow, reccers all (and if I missed you off, please poke me! So sorry but with one thing and another I completely admit that the admin got away from me this year!):

Please join us for a month of recs!

Rectober aims to celebrate reccing, reading, enjoying, commenting, sharing and discussion about fic, art and other fanworks during the month of October.

Why not take part in Rectober by pledging to make a certain number of rec posts during October? We also hope you'll encourage other reccers by commenting on their posts. ♥

All fandoms, pairings, genres and ratings are welcome! Bring on the recs!

Click here for list of participants \o/

The above link is where I'll be compiling a list of people reccing on LJ. I won't be linking to people reccing on tumblr, twitter or other sites this year, partly because I don't have the time, and partly to encourage traffic here on LJ.

I hope you'll support Rectober here on LJ, the place where it began, by posting your recs here and not just linking to your recs on other sites. It would be wonderful to see LJ buzzing with recs this month. ♥

I'll update the list through the month as people sign up. Feel free to poke about at these reccers' journals and look for recs. Hopefully there'll be a rectober tag to assist you!

Rectober is done for another year. But what a month of recs! I don't know about you, but there was an amazing selection of recs whooshing across my friends feed, from a big variety of fandoms. I gave plenty of new things a try - new fandoms, new pairings... here are a few of the things you wonderful people had me reading:

Peter / Tom (Bridget Jones), Goveballs (UK politics), Clameron (I can't even...), Ron/Hermione/Draco (REALLY?), MacFassy (I'm a believer), A/B/O fic, Harry/Ginny (I know), and Gryles (Nick Grimshaw and Harry Styles from 1D). There were probably many more which I have blanked ;-)

I wish I'd had time to comment on every post and read every single fic that was recced. Unfortunately RL, and dull things like eating and sleeping got in the way, but please give a hearty cheer for each and every one of our Rectober Reccers. Please take a bow:

As a little token of appreciation, please claim your Rectober Star graphics and use them with pride on your journal. Grabbable codes below. Thank you so much to [livejournal.com profile] capitu for all the lovely graphics and coding.

That's it for 2014. If you intended to participate, but didn't quite manage it, please don't worry. It would be great to see your recs if you get round to posting them at a later date, and I hope Rectober will be happening again in 2015, too. Don't forget that in the HP fandom, you can post recs to [livejournal.com profile] hd_storyroom at any time, and that [livejournal.com profile] crack_broom are always looking for people to sign up for specific pairings.

RECS =

And we have some rec posts already popping up! \o/

Loads of you have already pledged to post one or more recs during the month, but there's plenty of time if you would like to join us. Just add a comment to this thread or the main Rectober thread here letting me know you're in, and I'll add you to the list.

Rectober is definitely done for this year! Please let me know what you thought. Did it work for you? Should we do it again next year? Should we change anything?

A quick poll below, plus banners made by the delightful [livejournal.com profile] capitu as a gift for all you Rectober Reccers. Please grab one, and display it on your journal or wherever. I think I might have mine tattooed on my backside, because they are SO PRETTY!

A HUGE THANK YOU TO OUR DEDICATED RECCERS:

<333333 )

and anyone I have left out; so sorry if that has happened and please let me know asap!

Wrap-up poll )

PLEASE COME AND TAKE A PRETTY BANNER! THEY ARE TOO PRETTY TO JUST LEAVE SITTING HERE ♥ Just copy and paste the html from the box onto your journal ♥

We are over halfway through Rectober now, and SO MANY people have been posting recs. Here's the latest list of participants: (please let me know if I've missed you off):

Our delightful and dedicated reccers )

THANK YOU EVERYONE! ♥ ♥ ♥
I have seen loads of you posting recs, but if you haven't managed to post yet, there's still time to get going. Here's a template if you're in a hurry:

A couple of people have asked if it is too late to join in. Not at all; Rectober runs all the way up until Oct 31st. There is more info here at my journal , but basically just post a rec, let me have your name if you'd like to be added to the list, and tag your post "rectober". That's it! All fandoms, all pairings, all genres welcome. Here's a list of the recs that were collected in the first week alone. Do browse the participants' journals if you'd like some recs, and if you have time, do leave some encouragement if you see recs being posted.

If you are reccing: How are you finding it? Is it difficult to think of recs, or difficult to only choose your favourites? Are you enjoying it? Any problems? What would make it easier? Do you think you'll carry on after Rectober is over?

If you've been reading: Have you had some good tips? Found some gems, or revisited old favourites? Have you seen more people reccing than usual? Tried a new pairing, or maybe a new fandom? (*cough*  One Direction *cough*)

Writers and artists: Did your piece get recced? Did it give you a thrill? Did you get any extra reads and comments as a result?

TELL US ALL YOUR FABULOUS RECTOBER STORIES :DDD

Here's the list of people and comms planning to take part by making rec posts during the month of October.

Feel free to browse at their journals if you're looking for recs. A quick comment saying you enjoyed their post can be very encouraging :D

NEW: an ongoing masterlist of recs by [livejournal.com profile] meglw0228! Thank you so much!

PARTICIPANTS: Please add your name in the comments if I've missed you. It would be great if you could tag your posts "rectober" to aid people navigating around. Thank you!
