Mod Post: Special Community Requests for April  
Our challenge next month is both an oldie AND a goodie: community requests for ships and fandoms that we all want to see recs for! <3

How This Works: We're going to spend the next couple days compiling a list of community requests that you'd love to see your fellow het_reccers recommend fics for. We'll publish the list of those requests at the beginning of April, and spend the month helping our fellow comm members out with excellent fics!

What Can I Request?: Anything! You are of course welcome to request any specific ships you'd love to find fic for, but if you'd like to be more specific (i.e. "I've seen up to season five of Buffy—anybody have any recs that don't spoil later seasons?") or more general (i.e. "Anybody have any good recs for mutual pining fics?"), that's cool too. Blanket requests for fandoms or specific ships are, as always, 100% welcome.

Some example requests:

Star Wars: Rogue One, Jyn Erso/Cassian Andor
Pride and Prejudice
Fake dating, any fandom!

A Few Things to Note (aka The Fine Print): You will be limited to THREE REQUESTS (if you request more things, only the first three will make the list). While this is an open format for requests, please remember that we are a het-focused reccing community: gen, slash, and poly ships are not the name of the game here. Also, please use both the FIRST AND LAST NAMES of any people you might request, along with telling us what fandom you're asking for. Don't assume people will know what you're talking about without being specific!

Where Can I Do This?: If you're on Tumblr, respond to this post or send an ask to het-reccers. If you're on LJ, comment here!

Beauty and the Beast AUs? I don't know why, but the new movie sparked a weird need in me.
Also a Supergirl canon-divergence where they didn't fuck things up with Kara/James would be awesome.
I could also do with some new Whedonverse recs...haven't gotten any good Firefly or Buffy/Angel in my eyeballs for a while!

Jane Austen, Non-Canon pairings
Star Wars, Rey/Finn
Wonder Woman, Wonder Woman/Diana Prince x Steve Trevor (I know I'm jumping the gun a bit but I've always loved them and I am super excited for the movie.)

Murdoch Mysteries - Julia Ogden/William Murdoch (because I will need the fics to wait until October)
Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries - Phryne Fisher/Jack Robinson
Once upon a Time - Regina Mills/Robin Hood (I do need some OQ)

Whenever I'm looking for fics I can't stop thnking about what I want to read at that exact moment, but whenever I see these posts I'm like ???? What do I want... Fics?

Anyway, after three days thinking about it and coming up empty I've decided I'm posting whatever comes to mind first in the next 5 mins

- Arrow: Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen (anything at all cause I think I've read like 4 fics in total...)

- Iron Man: Tony Stark/Pepper Potts

- Ouat: Emma swan/Killian Jones

Timeless, Lucy Preston/Wyatt Logan, hopefully something not on AO3 or ff.net (because I've read them all already!).

I just requested the same thing, hee! I have read most of AO3, too. There isn't that much. *sigh*

I know, right? I'm still waiting for that super-long, slow burn, A\A, practically-an-ep-but-with-UST-leading-to-romance fic that is my favourite in every fandom, but at this point I will take it all!

Sometimes, reading my LJ only once a week is a problem. :/

Am I too late to request?

I would love recs for

Lucy/Wyatt (Timeless) - no restrictions on my end. Any rec is good.

Naomi/Holden and-or Naomi/Amos (The Expanse) - also no restrictions, there is barely any fic in this fandom!

I'm definitely going to rec some Lucy/Wyatt myself this month.
