Hi! I'm new to Kingsman fandom. What are some "classic" fics that everyone should read when they join? I want to catch up before Kingsman 2 comes out!
Hey, anon! Welcome to the fandom, which is honestly the best one I’ve been in <3 We have a lot of talented people who are friendly, outgoing, and ready to chat, so I hope you’re ready!
I can’t speak for everyone else, but I can tell you a few of my first Kingsman fics:
- Class of Conduct
- Once Upon a Different Lifetime
- Reasons to Shoot a Dog
- down dark tides the glory slides
- with your fierce tears
- putting on the ritz
- A Marriage of Inconvenience
There’s also the fact that there are many different genres out there, including fics that make you really hungry, fics that take you into the faraway past, fics that make you laugh, fics that involve dogs, fics that put a new spin on the Knights of the Round Table legends, fics that crossover into Colin Firth’s work, fics with artists, and even fics that are based off Neil Gaiman’s work! A03 is really good for finding the fic that you want!
And honestly, you can’t go wrong with @missbeckywrites, @futuredescending, @potentiality-26, @galahard, @fideliant, DivineProjectZero, @notbrogues, and @mongoose-bite! For smut (with plot, I swear), go to @calllay, Calico, and @concernedlily!
I’m mostly a Harry/Eggsy shipper, but if you’re looking for other pairings, @elletromil might be able to help!
Have a good time binge-reading! And once again, welcome to Kingsman! We hope you enjoy the ride :)
