Het Big Bang Recs: 3 Recs (Chuck, Community, & Original)  
I am still working my way through 2015's collection of fantastic works, so I've only got one 2015 rec so far but I also brought two 2013 recs that haven't yet been rec'd (the others I want to post have been already! :D)

From Het Big Bang 2015:

Fandom: Original Work
Pairing: OMC/OFC
Title: The Prince's Most Loyal
Author: Alley_Skywalker
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Het_Big_Little_Bang_Challenge_2015/works/4665903
Rating/Warning(s): T / PG-13
Word Count/WIP?: 28,514 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: red_b_rackham

Why This Must Be Read: I don't normally go for original fic nor for historical fic, but this caught me by surprise in a great way. I gave it a try and fell for it easily and quickly, getting caught up in a story about a man mucking his way through political intrigue while falling in love with his (dead) best friend's girl. The characters feel real right out of the gate and the writing is really lovely.

From Het Big Bang 2013:

Fandom: Chuck
Pairing: Chuck/Sarah
Title: My Girl Sarah
Author: Frea_O & mxpw999
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/943675/chapters/1841146
Rating/Warning(s): T / PG-13
Word Count/WIP?: 63,878 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: red_b_rackham

Why This Must Be Read: This fic is so much fun. It's an AU, set in the 1940's, where Chuck is the down-on-his-luck PI who gets mixed up in some serious business. Various Chuck characters make memorable appearances and the language is fantastic from start to finish, with plenty of great, noir-y-esque imagery.

From Het Big Bang 2013:

Fandom: Community
Pairing: Jeff/Britta
Title: Bound to the Tracks of the Train
Author: easternepiphany
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/936010/chapters/1822680
Rating/Warning(s): M / violence, mentions of past sexual abuse
Word Count/WIP?: 26,445 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: red_b_rackham

Why This Must Be Read: This is a dark and kind of gutting fic, but completely consuming and well worth it. Jeff and Britta's lives fall apart and things go very downhill - yet in a way that you'll find yourself totally going along with. The word choices are gorgeous, and coming out of this fic is like coming up for air and wondering where you are.

Ohhh, My Girl Sarah is terrific! Rare case of first-person POV actually working out all right.
