Because a few friends of mine asked for this…here you go!
Note: This is first movie canon only, just because there aren’t enough fics out for 2 yet. These are only my current favorite fics–in fact, I might actually do another first movie rec list just because there is so much good Bechloe fic out there.
song beneath the song (14413 words): “Chloe has always followed the music, because music has given her the best, most important things in her life. It’s never led her astray. Sometimes, though, she wishes it’d give her a little bit of warning about the roller coaster she’s in for.” I mean, what do I say about this fic? It is THE Bechloe fic. It’s a beautifully written movie-companion fic. If for some reason you’ve never read it, enjoy.
stare into the sky until we’re blind (24782 words): “Chloe Beale has one rule. Just one. Had she known that the odd combination of hair dye, a crappy old convertible, sixty-plus hours of driving, a mix CD, and one Beca Mitchell would lead to her breaking it, she never would have suggested going on this stupid road trip in the first place.” Can you say roadtrip au? With a side of fake dating au? You should DEFINITELY read this fic.
Bulletproof Use of Bullet Points (8500 words): “Tolerating smug shitheads for the sake of someone else is surely the True Meaning of friendship.” Oh my god. I never thought that I would want to read a Bechloe fic from an Aubrey POV, but this author just nails it. I laughed out loud countless times during this fic. PS: I consider this fic’s ending a much better version of the PP2 camping trip.
Always Bet On Red (2675 words):
“Cynthia Rose has a problem with gambling. She’s working on it, she swears. But damnit if she can help running a a secret betting pool on when Chloe’s going to admit her crush on Beca, when Beca is going to figure it out, and what Aubrey’s going to do when she finally puts all of it together.” This fic is so short, so funny, and so incredibly well done. A hilarious fic that’s nearly as much ensemble as Bechloe.
Life With Amy (7988 words): “Beca is still trying to get used to this whole being physical with a girl thing. Chloe is being beautifully patient. And Amy? Well…Amy is really not helping.” This is one of my favorite fanfictions ever, probably. Maybe not top 10, but definitely top 20. Novelconcept really makes you feel like you’re exploring the physicality of your first relationship along with Beca–prepare for a fic that’s surprisingly hot, for how little smut there actually is.
The Barden Bellas’ Guide to Getting Laid (2683): “Beca has a little trouble getting some. The Bellas are terrible at helping.” I mean…if you can’t see the implicit hilarity in that summary, then I can’t help you at all.
The WBUJ Code of Misconduct (3728 words): “Luke only mentioned that the desk was off-limits. Nobody said anything about the booth.” So, this is basically a sexy, humorous one shot with a pretty great ending. If that’s not your thing, then feel free to skip it–but you’ll be missing out.
Lost for Words (3728 words): “Beca’s head presses back into the pillow as she groans, but it’s undoubtedly undermined by the way she’s grinning back at Chloe. It’s one of Chloe’s special talents. Beca responds to her smiles like one of Pavlov’s dogs.” Um. This is a very good fic. It is almost basically entirely porn. I have included it because 1) it is precisely in character and 2) it’s one of the best smutty one shots I think I’ve ever read.
Sexual Implications of Teleportation (5111 words): “
The first time is a complete freak accident.” I’m gonna call this the AU you never knew you wanted, and also Care can make basically anything work. Surprisingly sweet, funny, and touching.
There Are Two Seats At The Bar (For Mr. And Mrs. My Last Name) (8920 words): “New York is the land of plenty. Plenty of noise, plenty of people, plenty of dollars sucked out of her wallet each week—and plenty of surprises.” Some classic, good old future fic. I’m particularly biased towards future fic, but this is still one of my top 5 Bechloe fics.
The Party’s Crashing Us (9299 words): “Beca has never been big into high school activities, but sometimes desperate people do desperate things. Like show up for marching band and get stalked by the creepy redheaded cheerleader who won’t leave you alone.” Look, it’s the requisite high school au! (This one is really cute and good, though. You should read it.)
