Fandom: That '70s Show
Pairing: Jackie Burkhart/Steven Hyde
Title: A Little Less Seventies, A Little More Modern AU

Why This Must Be Read: This captures the Jackie/Hyde dynamic perfectly had the gang all grown up in the '90s instead. It is humorous and heartwarming by turns.

4. Jackie is constantly complaining that Hyde is stuck in the 90’s, and won’t hesitate to use the phrase “nineties trash” when describing him. That doesn’t mean she won’t flail and screech like a banshee whenever a Powerpuff Girls rerun comes on. (Hyde likes Buttercup the best.)

Why This Must Be Read: This fic was written during the second season of Elementary, so a lot of the stuff in this fic has been Jossed. But I'm still enthralled by kathryne's description of Jamie and Sherlock's relationship before Sherlock realized the Irene he knew was actually Jamie, in particular Jamie's pining for Sherlock while imprisoned.

Mods, may I have a tag for Jamie Moriarty/Sherlock Holmes?

Why This Must Be Read: You know how "Agent Carter" pretty much confirmed that Peggy was the one who taught Steve how to steal a car in Nazi Germany? The backstory on that is only the first in a garden of delights that is this charming little gem.

Why This Must Be Read: Steve and Peggy being awesome together on and off the battlefield, with a dose of smashing the patriarchy and Bucky eyerolling on the sidelines? Yes, please.

Why This Must Be Read: Such awesome writing. Such an awesome use of Hawkeye's secret family. And such an awesome use of Laura Barton, who we barely get to see on film but who's not for nothing married to an Avenger.

Whether you're welcoming autumn in the Northern Hemisphere or finally breathing in spring down south, happy September from het_reccers! Here's just a few things we have going on at the moment...

  • lanalucy recently created an AO3 collection to track fics hosted on the Archive that have been recced in this community. It's far from complete—and we'll need everyone's help for it to grow! Feel free to add stuff you or anyone else has recced. You can scroll to the bottom of any fic, click "Add to Collection," and type in "HetReccers." Alternatively, add any story as a bookmark by selecting the collection when you create or edit the bookmark. Either method will add to the collection and help more readers find these fics—and give reccers a quick way to see if their favorite story is someone else's, too. And thanks to lanalucy for a great idea!

  • Coming up, October is our birthday month! We'll be celebrating EIGHT whole years of fabulous het recs with a challenge centered around traditional anniversary gift themes, so get to brainstorming and stay tuned for more details on the first of the month.

Keep the recs coming!

Title: Unspoken

Rating/Warning(s): R/sexual content
Word Count/WIP?: 2800/complete
Recced on LiveJournal By: merryghoul

Why This Must Be Read: In the episode "A Christmas Carol," the Doctor mentions accidentally married Marilyn Monroe. Although this fact was confirmed by River in "The Husbands of River Song," it was popular headcanon to believe the Doctor had been mistaken in thinking he married Marilyn Monroe and that he had married River instead.

In this fic, the Doctor is accidentally drugged with River's hallucinogenic lipstick and believes she's Marilyn Monroe. River takes advantage of him while he's in his drugged state while making sure their encounter doesn't attract unnecessary attention.

Fandom: Kingsman
Pairing: Roxy Morton/Harry Hart
Title: Outside My Current Experience
Author: theoldgods
Link: here
Rating/Warning(s): Explicit/sexual content (all acts are tagged for in the fic)
Word Count/WIP?: 5769/no
Recced on LiveJournal By: merryghoul

Why This Must Be Read: In order to prepare for a mission, Roxy has to learn certain sexual acts to gain the trust of a mark. Harry's the right person to try those acts on. This fic may be under 6000 words, but every line is incredibly hot.

Mods, may I have a tag for Kingsman (the movies? The first is known as "Kingsman: The Secret Service, but there will be a sequel in 2017, Kingsman: The Golden Service, and AO3 calls them both "Kingsman (Movies)") and Roxy Morton/Harry Hart?
