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

* Doctor Who ([personal profile] turlough)
* Eagle of the Ninth ([personal profile] mific)
* Steven Universe ([personal profile] sailorptah)

So while we already have some recs to look forward to in June, it would of course be awesome if we had 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 NO reccers have volunteered for July, 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 June, July 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 May. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Nostalgia", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they 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: This is such a cool idea and really well realised. It's intended as a page from Maturin's diary, with his humorous drawings of the tortoise he named for Jack - just a little anthromorphised. Very cleverly done, and a great likeness as well. I can just see Jack spluttering with wounded dignity and Stephen laughing his pants off.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the works of this artist. The colours and line work are always gorgeous, like Art Deco stained glass windows. And though they look quite simple and stylisied there is always so many neat details to discover in every work. Like Melkor cowering from the might of Arien, and the tiny fruit of Laurelin and flower of Telperion in this one.
