Four recs for Revolution AUs

The now-cancelled NBC show Revolution had a set of remarkable characters who were betrayed by an inconsistent, forgetful writing team which seemingly didn’t know what to do with the monsters they had created. As a result,  alternate universes flourish in the Revolution fic community, whether as a twist on canon, the popular 'no blackout AU', or a fusion with other shows.

Why This Must Be Read: Personally, I’m not a fan of the soulmate trope. And all sorts of alarms went off when I realised this story started with a child claimed at birth by her all-powerful soulmate. But the story that hayj has crafted around this premise manages to navigate it in a way that Charlie Matheson makes her own choices, surrounded by a loving, supportive family as she matures into her position as the first lady of the Monroe Republic. Addictive and epic.
