Why This Must Be Read: Because of course Catherine and Henry are soulmates, and it's both adorable and romantic - I like to imagine how the rest of the novel would have played out in this AU world.

Recced on LiveJournal By: blithers

Why This Must Be Read: This is A/B/O fic with an emphasis on consent and fighting urges, which makes it all the hotter; one of the tags on the fic is "consent kink", to give you an idea of what this fic is about. Ladybug and Chat are caught by an akuma, in their superhero guises, in a world where Ladybug in an omega and Chat is an alpha (and he still happily lets her take the lead).

Why This Must Be Read: But then he met Janet, who made the bass drop in his heart, and then they got married, and once people got married, they could have sex whether they yelled at each other or not. It was going to be dope, just as soon as Jason figured out what to do.

I loooove Janet/Jason on The Good Place, and this fic is a short and fun and sweet fic about the episode in the first season after they got married, while they were trying to figure out how to have sex.

Why This Must Be Read: And this was probably my favorite Good Place fic written for Yuletide this year, which covers season one (and a bit of season two) from Janet's skewed perspective.

Fandom: Strike / Cormoran Strike series by Robert Galbraith
Pairing: Robin Ellacott/Cormoran Strike

Why This Must Be Read: This was one of my favorite fics from Yuletide this year, a fragile, careful exploration of the beginning of a Robin/Strike relationship. It's really lovely and touching, and works equally well for book or miniseries fans, I think.

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.
