Zootopia, 5 recs, Judy/Nick  
I watched Zootopia because I was promised cuteness, animal puns, and surprisingly cogent metacommentary about racism and prejudice. No one warned me that I would come away from this movie an inadvertent furry who shipped a goddamn bunny and a fox!!! *slams hand on table!* And now I bring you recs to tempt the rest of you into this dumpster with me.

Fandom: Zootopia
Pairing: Judy Hopps/Nick Wilde
Title: You Know What They Say About Foxes (They'll Break Your Heart)
Author: ozymandias314

Rating/Warning(s): M, Warnings for (nonexplicit) interspecies furry sex????
Word Count/WIP?: 20,014/No

Why This Must Be Read: This was the first fic that a friend recced to me and it's my favorite. Judy and Nick start a friends with benefits relationship, until she realizes she might be falling in love, but there's no way Nick could feel the same way....could he? Mutually oblivious pining!!!! Nosy neighbors providing unsolicited commentary on Judy's love life!!! Pitch perfect character voices!!! All the things I like!!!


Title: Blind Spots
Author: Falke

Rating/Warning(s): M, Warnings for graphic depictions of violence

Why This Must Be Read: This is a heavier case fic. Nick and Judy work their first murder case and it's taking a toll on them. Nick and Judy are an established couple here and I love how their relationship is their oasis in the midst of all the ugliness they're dealing with.

Why This Must Be Read: REGENCY AU!!!!! I love how the author has adapted the characters and story in this setting, and they way they build Judy and Nick's relationship. A romantic complication in the form of Gideon Gray shows up, but the love triangle is well handled I believe. I adored this little AU.

Why This Must Be Read: This is another of the heavier stories I'm reccing. Nick and Judy are investigating the murder of an arctic wolf, who was active in a political group campaigning for the acceptance of cross-species relationships, which are considered taboo in Zootopia. Naturally, this is relevant to Nick and Judy's relationship, and in between the murder investigation and a tense political environment, Nick and Judy have to figure out what to do about their feelings for one another. This fanfic does for the political debate about LGBTQ+ relationships and conversion therapies as Zootopia does for political discussions of racism and systematic prejudice.


Title: Scenes From A Partnership
Author: sanctuary_for_all

Why This Must Be Read: A series of scenes from when Judy and Nick solve the case and until the end of the movie when Nick graduates from the police academy. This is so fluffy and lovely. PINING! FRIENDS TO LOVERS! SLOW BURN!!! MY FAVORITE THINGS!!


Mods, can I have fandom and ship tags?

Hahahahaha! Yes. This. Happened to me, too. You are not alone. Oddly disconcerting, isn't it.

Also, thanks for the recs. :-)

Oh i loved Scenes From a Partnership :-)
Totally trash for this one, mostly because they're utterly fricking adorable and I've now seen this film an embarrassing number of times.

And now I bring you recs to tempt the rest of you into this dumpster with me.

Oooh, already long there. :D I haven't added it to my userpics, but I did make a shippy icon... in case anyone wants to use it, feel free. I guess here is the best place for it. *G*



So even though I ship them hard, I actually never got around to digging into the fic. Thanks so much for these!
