Unfashionably late, as usual.  But I'm trying.

Day 1 )

Day 2 - Fandom Communities/Fests/Resources/etc. (no idea why the cut won't work; sorry)
 
[insanejournal.com profile] hp_beholder is my favorite fest because it simultaneously ensures that my favorite minor characters get love (literally), and forces me to consider characters even I wouldn't think of as having hidden depths in situations that I wouldn't expect to find them in.
 
[community profile] scans_daily has introduced me to a whole bunch of awesome comic book series and creators, while allowing me to keep up with what's currently going on in those fandoms (and warning me about what to disregard).
 
TV Tropes may ruin your life, but it's also a useful resource and gut check when I'm not sure whether a certain plot twist or character type has been done to death.

Will catch up on Day 3 when I have more thought to spare.

For today's recommendations by other people, I'm going to confine myself to non-Harry Potter stories not written for me or by friends.  One below, two under the cut for spoilers.  All gen (or with background pairings), and content shouldn't be problematic unless you're really just in the mood for fluff.

Chasing Normal
 by dotfic - "There was this one time I saved the world..." (Justice League/Justice League Unlimited)

I don't remember how I stumbled across this one at all, but I love it.  It's probably the most accessible of these recommendations if you're not familiar with the canon, and you don't need to have read the other stories in the series to follow along.  The plot is simple - ordinary guy gets superpowers through freak lab accident - but the "ordinary guy" is simultaneously relatable and more special than even he realizes in the way he handles the situation, and the powers are really clever, and it's just a ton of fun.
