Realistic Story Recs - Resource Post

Hi all,

Last Thursday I asked the members of [livejournal.com profile] ds_team_reality to put together a list of recs for realistic stories they admire, or to name the stories that they felt best suited the Reality genre as they understood it. This list can serve as a resource for the team, help us understand the principles of realist fic a little better, and offer some good examples of winning story formulas. Here's what the team came up with!

I think:

Borealis = [livejournal.com profile] resonant8
Tilt = [livejournal.com profile] elementalv's here and [livejournal.com profile] resonant8's here

Maybe you should let someone else be the minion, huh? *g*
