Okay, this rec list is dedicated to some Twitter friends who have a profound love of well-written AUs with good characterization. Much love to you all (especially to ExEm for nudging me into compiling this list).
This list started out as Destiel-centric, and then I realized when going through my bookmarks is that I’m an AU fiend in any fandom…and then I asked my Collective cohorts for their recs as well, so here’s a multi-fandom list, separated by pairing. Happy reading, shippers!
P.S. Past AUs that I’ve recced can be found on our Tumblr rec lists. 🙂
300 Things by cautionzombies
Summary: Dean’s life at twenty-four makes him feel like he’s forty—he works two jobs to help pay bills for his house and put his genius little brother through private school, and has spent six years (on and off, let’s be honest) working on his mechanical engineering degree at KU. With so much of his life devoted to his family, Dean has little time in his schedule for class and no time for social interaction. Then, while getting his classes together for the fall, he finds himself in a do-or-die situation: He must take his last literature class now, his spring already filled with those left for his major…except that none of the English classes will fit his schedule. This is how Dean grovels and begs Dr. Castiel Milton to make a special arrangement for him, and Dr. Milton does.
The Collectress’ Thoughts: This one is so fandom-famous, do I really need to say anything? Just read it.
The holiday season is here. We thought we’d pass on some good cheer. If you’re feeling the need to have a good read, click the titles below and have a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
Pairing: Dean Winchester/Castiel
Whoever recced this to me, I love you and I hate you. This is a beautiful story, beautifully written, and it hurts so beautifully. It’s an AU that begins in the 1940s, and it’s the love story of Dean Winchester and Castiel that spans decades.
I’d be lying if I said that I didn’t sob my way through the end of this, but for all that, it’s the happiest ending Dean and Cas could ever have. Recced by: The Collectress
Pairing: Stiles Stilinski/Derek Hale
In which Stiles cooks for Derek, the Hale clan is still alive, and everyone meddles in Derek’s love life. Oh for cute. Recced by: The Collectress
