Revived Recs

In light of a few of our favorite wips coming back to life after what felt like decades in fandom years, The Lemonade Stand hopes to breathe life back into these classics, to essentially revive them.

These are stories that kept us enthralled while reading and stuck with us through the years and hundreds of other fics. These are stories that are classic and memorable. Stories we won't forget even if they never complete. The Lemonade Stand believes that it's never too late for a good revival. So click, click, click these links, express your LOVE through reviews, pm's-- whichever you prefer, just pump some life back into these guys and let's see if we can ultimately revive them.

There are times in fic life when even the best laid out stories cannot be completed by the original writer. Whether it be due to real life commitments, time constraints, or writers block one thing rings true; these stories have touched our hearts and are begging to be completed. These stories have been offered up by the original authors for adoption. So open them up, try them out, and if you're brave enough contact the authors so you can be the one to breathe life back into these fics.

  1. Great post and a good opportunity to remind the authors of our continued support and faith.

    If or when you run this again, may I suggest the following for consideration:
    Becoming Bella by Ms.Bond
    The Harder They Fall by IronicTwist
    Carravaggio by meimei42
    Chain Reaction by araeo
    Collapse the Universes by FantasyMother
    Hints of Me by 22blue
    God Love Her by Lynyrd Lionheart
    De La Vie d'Artiste by rhpsfaerie
    Faithfully by LailaB
    Beside Still Waters by AmyZini (<< this one is so, so good, it's almost a crime it's not being updated!)

    I have more, many more, but that'll do for now! :)

  2. oh wow...A Woman Scorned, I had just let that one go and removed it from my favs. It would make my day if it were revieved.

  3. I really wish that "What If I Told You" would continue. Don't know what happened there. She had even said that the next chapter was almost completed when she last posted. It's sad when we lose touch with this wonderful stories.

    Thanks for posting all these though. I know there were a LOT of ecstatic fans when "Breaking Trinity" updated this past week.


  4. What I would like to know is if these authors are even around anymore. I always get the feeling that something terrible has happened and thus they can't continue writing. Not that I am always doom and gloom, but it would be nice if I could know the status of these authors. Many of these fics, and the commented fics, I have read and love and miss. I think it more important to know the status of the author. Where as OCDMess has informed us she is not completing them (so sad to hear, I love 'Two Lines'), the other authors have not made any contact in a year or so. Who out there knows more about the authors so we/I can have some kind of closure and acceptance!?!?!

  5. Hello ladies and thank you for reading our post. I wish I had more answers for you, but the truth is some of these gems are new to me, too. Our hope is that we as a fandom can come together to GENTLY find the answers. Or find these stories new parents.
