Torchwood Recommendations Central Link Post

Hello, and welcome to my rec journal. This is the main information post about what's here and how to find it, but the short and easy answer is to just friend this journal to get my daily rec updates and links to thematic lists. The volume of this journal is 1-2 posts per day: One post to update my Delicious recs via Twitter, and one or two thematic posts per week. I also have a monthly five-star rec post. If you want more information about what I rec and why, please read on.

I routinely look at the stories posted on torchwood_three, the Torchwood category on A Teaspoon and an Open Mind and the Torchwood category on Archive of Our Own. I also have a lot of older stories saved, and as I read through the old and the new I pick out the ones that I think are enjoyable and readable and bookmark them on Delicious. With lots of tags. I also include summaries (when provided by the author) and occasional commentary on the Delicious bookmarks, so if you're looking for more detail, you'll want to visit the Delicious site.

I think of my recs primarily as a reading filter, aimed at readers who might not have time to click through everything posted every day, and also aimed at new fans who might feel overwhelmed at the sheer volume of stories out there. My primary goal is pick out the stories I feel are mechanically and stylistically sound, and let the reader go on from there.

If that's too broad for your tastes, I also have a five-star tag (literally, *****) that I use for stories which I found outstanding in some way. Every month, I make a post to this journal highlighting the five-star stories I bookmarked that month, with links and commentary. These lists are tagged here under the five-star recs tag (five-star recs tag on Livejournal). I also highly recommend torchwood_house, a well-organized and comprehensive recommendation community.

I follow twgenrefinders and, as I have time and inclination, make up thematic lists based on the requests here. I re-post them here under the "torchwood finder lists" tag. (torchwood finder lists tag on Livejournal) and also under the more general "thematic lists" tag (thematic lists tag on Livejournal). You can also browse these lists through the character, pairing and genre tags on the tags page (tags page on Livejournal).

Updates

I just wanted to post and say that I am continuing to read and recommend current Torchwood stories, but I haven't been going through old stories as much and haven't been making themed lists. This is why the volume of the daily recommendations has gone down and why there have been gaps in posting.

Long story short, I'm adjusting to some medications that are making it difficult for me to concentrate on details, which is kind of what tagging stories is all about. (Plus, I've had a fever/cold this week.) I feel confident that I'll be able to maintain this holding pattern while everything sorts out and hopefully I'll get back into digging through the piles of older stories soon. Until then, take care everyone.
