This and the following posts should contain every still active story recommended in the Recommended Stories thread from its start until 12/31/2010. Because of the new format I've been using with the HP and Naruto threads, some entries that were already mentioned in the original general recommendations thread appear here again. Now that this is over, I might go check the Ranma Recommendations thread. It has grown just about big enough that indexing it is worth the effort. ----- ----- ----- ----- ----- *ARCHIVES/FICS -General Fanfic Mausoleum 'n Grill http://fanfic-mausoleum-n-grill.dreamwidth.org/ Mentioned by Lavanya Six.
