Most of these fics (and I haven't checked all of them yet) are eligible to be nominated for Fanfiction of the Month. They updated during the time to allow them to be nominated for the current period. Fanfiction of the Month pretty much is a recommendation thread, particularly the nomination portion. When you nominate a fic for FFotM, people will read it so they can properly vote for it.
So closing this as we pretty much already have this here.
