Novel-Length and Novella-Length Recs.

saucefactory:

If you’re like me, you desperately want to read longer stories. You want to get lost in them for hours - perhaps even days - on end. You want to immerse yourself in beautiful writing, and never surface again!

Well, if that sounds like you, then here are my absolute favorite novel-length and novella-length stories from a variety of fandoms! ALL OF THESE STORIES ARE ABOVE 20,000 WORDS. Many are even over 100,000 words. Rejoice!

There are currently a whopping 2,040 recs in this post, which, at an average of 50,000 words per story, add up to a mind-blowing 102 million words worth of reading. That’s, uh. That’s a lot. You might well be reading stories from this collection for years, and every one of them is worth reading; these stories are hand-picked for their high literary quality, and are the best stories I’ve come across in more than a decade of fannish involvement.

The very best stories, however, are compiled in a top 10 list before the general recs list, and are stories you absolutely must read. Don’t recognize the fandoms these 10 stories are from? Unfamiliar with their associated canon? No problem. Read them as works of original fiction (except for the ones that already are original fiction), because - and trust me when I say this - if they were published books, they would win awards. Don’t believe me? Read them and see for yourself. These novels are works of such creativity and incandescent passion that they will consume you like a moth in a flame, and make you like it.

Top 10

Well, those are the top ten stories! Here are the rest, broken down into fandoms, with the number of recs in brackets after each fandom’s name.
