  1. I noticed The Art Teacher on the poll this week and think it is already on the recommended fic list. I wish you wouldn't repeat stories like this because it takes away from some of the other lesser known stories. Just a thought.. :)

  2. Actually, Creature of Habit is on the list already as well :)

  3. Oh, Hi there, Anonymous!

    You will find quite a few more than just The Art Teacher and Creature of Habit that have been featured more than once. The reason is to give them a shot at fic of the month again.

    We pride ourselves in featuring a ton of lesser known fics every month. If you're looking for a great blog for lesser knowns you should check out Indific Pimp. Wonderful rec site for the lesser knowns. All of our affiliates on the sidebar offer great recs as well.
