el_staplador -- Look for new works by fan authors whose existing work I enjoy; browse friends' bookmarks

jae -- It's been probably a decade since I went actively looking for fanfiction, since I so rarely found what I wanted. While I was still reading, a day or two of reading at yuletide time generally provided me with what I was interested in.
devon -- I wish I knew the best place to find recs, esp for older fandoms like Atlantis and Teen Wolf.
glass_icarus -- Beyond recs, I also go through AO3 profiles of authors whose work I've read and liked - both their works and their bookmarks (if any). Tags are usually too annoying to check.
marginaliana -- my 'to read' bookmarks are immense
