Done, done, done! 💅🏻
In your own space, post recs for at least three fanworks that you did not create.
I always have such a difficult time narrowing it down to just a couple of works from all the ones I love. There are so many amazing fanworks out there. How can I choose? Yeah, I'm doing more than three 😉
The Steinway!verse by toomuchplor
The alternate universe where Arthur's a pianist and Eames is a lyric baritone and their love is so lieder, omg.
This series is fantastic. It was one of the first Arthur/Eames fics I read and I go back to it from time to time to refresh my memory, and every time it's as amazing as the first.
Wednesday Addams!Castiel by artsiel, powerfulweak
This series is exactly what it says, Castiel as Wednesday Addams, what's not to love about it?
Spirit of the Game
Despite working summers at one of Albion's oldest grounds, Merlin gave exactly zero fucks about cricket or cricketers until the day one of the visiting 1st XI, striding past in his whites, paused and crouched down to adjust his shoelaces.
Sports+Merthur+enemies to friends to lovers trope. Yes, it should read at least once because missing it would be a total shame.
This Silly Ol' Dance Is Perfect for Two by SlantedKnitting
Arthur is young, gorgeous, talented, and captain of one of the best football teams in England; his life should be perfect. But he can't keep a girlfriend for more than a few months, and it's not just because he isn't ready to settle down. When his most recent girlfriend dumps him, he has a rough night at the pub and has to be dragged home by his neighbour, Merlin. Merlin is an archivist, a Ph.D student, and he hates football almost as much as he hates Arthur. They both have their own reasons for not wanting to spend time with each other, but after that disastrous night, remaining silent neighbors doesn't seem like much of an option anymore.
Yes, merthur+sports again! This one is brilliant. I love how vulnerable Arthur is in this one, and how Merlin ends up helping him and they become friends and something else too eventually.
You could've made a safer bet by
It's hard to call someone a dick when that's their name. Or, the one where Dick and Midnighter are roommates, and everyone eats too many Fruit Loops.
Omg, Dick/Midnighter makes me weak at the knees and this AU is so perfect and still true to their characters.
Money Honey by DoreyG
"So,” Scott says one day, sending him a glance that can best be described as flirtatious, “how rich actually are you?”
This one's short but soooo good. I stumbled upon it and gave it a chance despite never reading or considering Scott Lang/Hank Pym as a pairing. I don't regret it one bit.
Provenance by drinkbloodlikewine, whiskeyandspite
A delightful AU about a rare book dealer, an owner of a high-end coffee shop, and murder. This does involve Hannibal Lecter, after all.
I'm just gonna say: I LOVE IT
⭐️ In the Flesh
There are Stars Inside You by owlinaminor
“We can create a world of divine love as much as we can imagine.” – Allen Ginsberg
Or, how Simon Monroe’s novel found a cover and his heart found a companion, all thanks to one brilliant move by Amy Dyer, the beautiful genius.
I don't usually favor AUs in this fandom 'cause I love the canon setting so much, but this fic is lovely.
🌟That was it for today. I almost want to rec about twenty more fics xD 🌟
⭐️ Also, if you have any sports AUs recs for any of these fandoms (or Star Wars, Star Trek, Shadowhunters/TMI...), please share away ☺️
