An Important Announcement  
It is with sadness that Stars and I want to let everybody here know that the Het Reccers LiveJournal community as well the the corresponding Tumblr mirror will be going into archive-only mode on March 31, at the end of this month.

We aren't able to give the community the care and attention it needs as mods anymore, and the community as a whole has slowed down within the past year or so. So, we've come to the bittersweet decision to retire this community at the end of the month, and let it serve as an archived reference of great fic recs from that point onward.

Please note that the Dreamwidth community and the AO3 collection are not affected by this announcement, as they're run by different people (who aren't us!) and are great places to take (and find) any recs in the future.

That means, however, that we have one month left here to have one final reccing party!

So rec us all the amazing fics you've been holding onto! Star Wars, Stranger Things, Black Panther, The Good Place, Wonder Woman, and everything in between—what have you read recently that you've loved? Did you read any great Yuletide or Chocolate Box fics this year? What's your latest shipping obsession?

Share it with us! Any and all het recs are welcome. And please feel free to share this post with friends as well—the more the merrier for our final month of reccing!

As always, to post a rec on Tumblr, follow the simple directions on our submit page.

To post a rec on LiveJournal, you don’t need to ask for posting rights—just become a community member, copy/paste the text below, and post it as a new entry!

I was wondering what was going on - my feed seemed awfully lonely without my recs coming in.

Aww, I've felt the same way too. It's a sad decision, but we think it's for the best.

Please do feel free to post some recs this month to help us celebrate our last month of reccing! :)

Aw sorry to hear it, but glad you are keeping the posts as an archive.

Absolutely! I could never delete the thousands and thousands of fic recs that are posted here - I'm happy at least that het reccers will continue to serve as an amazing archive from here on out.

Please do feel free to post some recs this month and help us celebrate our last month of reccing! :)

Would you be willing to hand over the community to someone else? I’ve modded many communities in the past (most daily picture comms). I don’t think I’ll be able to do actual posting very often, but I can at least moderate and approve posts so that people can continue sharing recs here. It’s up to you, though. You guys have done an amazing job with this community. <3
