It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for July with these fandoms:

* Hannibal ([personal profile] dreamkist)
* The Raven Cycle ([personal profile] delacourtings)

So while we already have a few recs to look forward to in July, it would of course be awesome if we had some more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

Looking even further ahead so far only NO reccer has volunteered for August, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for July, August or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

Open Rec Posting

The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of June. Since the general prompts don't seem to work as inspiration, I've decided to stop adding them, but to keep the open reccing period in case anyone wants to slip a rec in, without having to come up with three others for a fandom. However the recs do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

(Comments here are disabled, because I want to bundle volunteering in the sign-up post so that nothing gets lost, and you can see the list of claimed slots there too.)

Why this piece is awesome: Roncheg has two amazing styles, loose yet detailed animated style and stuff like this, heavy and intense yet minimalist. The line work is wonderful and the piece is sexy without being explicit

Why this piece is awesome: normally I don't do the same artist twice in a month but I couldn't resist reccing this piece it's so gorgeous. How the artist makes these colors work I'll never know but it's a vibrantly alive portrait of Lydia that smacked me in the face enough to get me off my Sterek kick for a moment.

Why this piece is awesome: This is such a fantastic portrait of Jadis. Very different from almost every depiction I've seen before, but very fitting both to her incarnation as the White Witch and as the Empress of Charn. Here she's both beautiful and scary and also looks very, very powerful.

Why this piece is awesome: I'm playing catch-up with SGA-AU recs here, and this is another by loobeeinthesky - this one's on LJ and might otherwise be hard to locate. It's an Earth-based AU, with John as a missing C&W singer and Rodney either looking for him or aiding and abetting him. The collage-style art tells a gripping story all by itself, and as ever the likenesses are amazing. It's really excellent.

Why this piece is awesome: Sorry I'm so late with the recs this month - overloaded with a big challenge. I'm doing SGA alternate universe art this month, and this one is completely awesome - John and Rodney as WWII pilots in the Battle of Britain! John's in trouble as usual, and Rodney's keeping a stiff upper lip, but he's looking pretty worried. The likenesses are amazing, and they're both so dashing!

Why this piece is awesome: Okay, I def have a thing for cartoony/stylized artwork -- it's a skill I envy; these are great examples of that. They do a great job of straddling the realism/caricature line. I also just really love the expressions the artist captures -- worried/anxious Derek and completely over it Stiles.

I crawled out through the hotel window,
and lay slaughtered on the roof, thinking:

Nothing is beautiful here: even the thousand
suns struggle to provoke a light of healing
rather than scorching. I felt the gold cut
through me and cauterise the wound. half-
finished and aching, I was a dangerous thing
—an injured animal still hunting. Birds
flinched from my hands and flowers
withered into kindling. My own blood
refused to run through my fingers. I was
incessant, perpetual—running barefoot
through the woods towards the creaking
heart of my body. Only rain came out to
greet me as it struck the undergrowth
with an open palm. I ran like a bush fire
was chasing. Salt settled into the ground
behind me, and the pulse of the earth
stuttered and was slowing.

As mentioned in some of our updates from earlier this year, we've updated the Fanlore main page! We hope this version helps new users find help and other relevant info more easily. The design change is still very much open to suggestions — if you have ideas, please add a comment to the talk page or contact us via email.

We're still working on three sections we'd like to add to the new main page. First, a 'help wanted' section will link a few stubs that need work and rotate regularly. Next, 'featured article' and 'featured image' sections, which will spotlight each week one article that editors deem thorough and helpful enough and one image with interesting description and source information.

Here's the process we're considering for the nomination and election of featured articles and images. Please let us know what you think via talk page comment or email!
