31st-Dec-2008 09:55 pm Three Times Radar Made Christmas Bearable by pie_is_good
Naturally, this has to be my final rec before I turn over the keys to the van:

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None.
Length: 1,000 words
Rating: PG
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

Because everyone knows that when all is said and done, Radar is the heart of 4077th. Radar is the man who keeps the machine running - and this story conveys this fundamental truth with touching simplicity. Read it if you want to feel some warm fuzzies before sallying forth into the new year.

Pairing: Hawkeye/BJ (mild)

Why this must be read:

I'm a sucker for an arresting image, and this brief slice-of-life story certainly provides.

31st-Dec-2008 06:54 pm The Dawn Don't Rescue Me No More by Epigone
Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None.
Length: 14,000+ words
Rating: PG-13
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] likethesun2
Author Website: Finishing the Hat
Why this must be read:

Is it kindness or cruelty to restore a painful memory that has been suppressed? Through Sidney - and the well-developed original characters who populate his psychiatric ward - Epigone explores all the ambiguities inherent in this question - and walks away with no easy answers. If you want richly drawn finale-fic, this is the story for you.

31st-Dec-2008 06:27 pm the hours between dawn and nothing by furies
I wish I could've spaced these out more, but December succeeded in distracting me in so many ways. Alas. At any rate, I am now forced to smack you all with a bunch of recs at once on this final night of 2008. I apologize in advance for being spammy.

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None. (perhaps Hawkeye/BJ if you choose to read it that way)
Length: 8,820 words
Rating: PG
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] furies
Author Website: running through the tulips
Why this must be read:

Written for Yuletide 2006, this story is a classic of the fandom's post-war genre. Though it is, above all things, a vehicle for BJ, it does justice to the entire ensemble - and it conveys BJ's sense of dislocation in a manner that is true to character and to life.

I've noticed just now that I've been reccing a lot of serious fic, so now let's try for something lighter:

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None. (maybe Hawkeye/Mulcahy if you squint)
Length: 3,400 words
Rating: PG
Author on LJ: Unknown
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

I have to admit that Hawkeye's playboy attitude is probably my least favorite thing about the character, so any story that involves said attitude leading to even vaguely negative consequences strikes me as just great. But lest you fear this is a morality tale, allow me to put you at ease: this story, which is built around a practical joke getting wildly out of hand, is very funny and perfectly in keeping with the characters. If you're looking for a fic that reads like an actual episode, this is the fic for you.

8th-Dec-2008 10:06 am I May Know The Word by Meredith Bronwen Mallory
I just realized I've been neglecting to put ratings on these recs. Sorry! I've gone back and edited those previous posts.

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: Hawkeye/BJ, Radar/Henry (mild)
Length: 2,730 words
Rating: PG
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] garnettrees
Author Website: Demando Dot Net
Why this must be read:

Meredith has an interesting take on Radar's telepathy that shouldn't be missed. And I could truly hear Gary Burghoff saying these words, which should be the goal of every author writing a character piece. The award this story won a while back was well deserved.

7th-Dec-2008 12:06 pm Screw Loose by Finding_Jay
Frank Rec Number Two:

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: Hawkeye/Frank, with a side of Margaret/Frank.
Length: approximately 4,200 words
Rating: PG-13 to light R
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] finding_jay
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

[livejournal.com profile] finding_jay uses fascinating stylistic parentheticals to bring us a Frank who simultaneously resents and craves Hawkeye's popularity - a Frank who desperately wants to strike back at those who wield power over him (past and present). The back story presented by the author here is so frighteningly plausible that I am tempted to adopt it as my own personal fanon.

Now for a few Frank recs:

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None.
Length: roughly 400 words
Rating: G
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] swing_set
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

Frank is a difficult character to write, but [livejournal.com profile] swing_set manages a pitch perfect interpretation in a few spare words. Here is a Frank who is petty and resentful - and also lonely.

Hello, all! I am [livejournal.com profile] hobsonphile, and I will be driving the van for M*A*S*H this month. I am a ginormous Radar fan and a gen addict, but I'm also fair, so with the help of some friends, I will attempt to rec fics from every nook and cranny of this small - but still active - fandom.

First, though, a Radar fic:

Fandom: M*A*S*H
Pairing: None
Length: roughly 1,700 words
Rating: G
Author on LJ: [livejournal.com profile] takenhawkeye
Author Website: Unknown
Why this must be read:

Because - even sans a title - it deserves to be canon. I have absolutely no doubt in my mind that Radar would've visited Lorraine eventually, and how that visit is presented here just makes so much sense.
