HL_Recs Self-Recs Fest  
In case you haven't heard, hl_recs is holding a "self recs" fest.  I'm hoping it will revive this moribund community.  (One weekly or monthly recommendation of the standard sort would be perfect!)

I must admit skepticism of "self reccing."  My past experience (elsewhere!) has been that some spotlight everything they've ever written, while others remain too modestly silent.  However, this community seems to be handling it pretty well so far.  There have been 31 self-recs by 15 authors since the event opened on 10/18.  Thirteen (42%) are crossovers and a few are AUs; those genres aren't to my own taste, but I know that some of you delight in them.  Today, killabeez posted about "Blackbirds," her favorite of her own vids, and last week — excitingly for me; she's an old favorite gen-writer of whom I'd lost track! — [archiveofourown.org profile] Teresa_C surfaced with a post about her story "Darling Boy."

The mod invites us all to post about our favorites of our own HL work, and reminds us to use tags (list), warnings, and headers

I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand. This post seems functional, and so do all the posts to which it links. If you can explain further, I would be glad to try to help you.
