Why This Must Be Read: Soulmate Aus are all the rage now but… with Selina Kyle, that as any true cat is determined to move according only her whim and her comfort, that take on this trope becomes pretty unpredictable and utterly fun. *Of course* a professional thief is not happy to have a baby-billionaire name on her wrist. What will she do about it?

Why This Must Be Read: Chris Dee wrote a delightful series about the lives of Batman and Catwoman in Gotham while the two are in an actual relationship, titled Cat-Tales. It has alternating POVs – where Selina’s voice is appropriately catty and mischievous and defiant, and Bruce’ is wonderfully dry and grumpy- and the other DC villains quite often chiming in as they are, after all, Selina’s social circle, for good or bad. This is the first installment – Selina decides to make a drastic move to preserve her reputation and stomp off the increasing rumors about her involvement with Batman … getting on the road a theatre show that is quite hilarious for us readers and not so hilarious for the bat. I smiled so hard, reading this, I thought my face would crack… if that’s not recommendation enough, what is it?


‘Normal’ is the direct sequel and second (completed) installment, it has Selina and Bruce comfronting each other, redefining normal, and finally getting together – there’s the same wild humour that was running rampant in the first installment, but there’s romanticism too, and more character exploration and… it totally made me falling in love with the pairing and the series.

The universe of ‘Gotham-After-Dark’ kept expanding and getting better and spicier. Don’t miss out, I would rec each single installment if I could!

Why This Must Be Read: WOKE UP MARRIED is up there with fake dating and sharing a bed as my favorite trope. In this one, Jeff and Annie get married on accident during a Greendale Reunion, but are working through their very real feelings for each other.
