gen recs!

Ahoy all! I'll be looking at doing some more gen and meta, as folks have suggested. Let's start with some recs. Name me some good genfic! Any fandom, any size, but try to keep it relatively recent fic -- the kind of gen that folks are writing now. What's the best gen you've read lately?

Also, [personal profile] rydra_wong suggested a meta discussion of the types of genfic. That's actually had me scratching my head a bit, because I haven't really thought about types of genfic at all. There's casefic, and then there's, er. I suppose one could split things out by the classic Heinlein/Hubbard story types -- ie, the slash and het would be "Boy Meets Girl [or Boy]," then gen would encompass "The Little Tailor" and "The Man Who Learned Better." But that doesn't really work, either.

(As I've noted in the past, the story I tend to write over and over again is "The Man [or Woman] who Learned Better.")
