An Extensive Eruri Fic Rec
Because this is goodbye.
Due to some personal reasons, this blog will be going on semi-permanent hiatus. But I’ve loved, still love, Eruri, and this fandom, for so long, and so much, that I needed some closure. And the best way I’ve thought to do that is just to compile the Eruri Fics that I am eternally grateful for having read, and which have all given me so much, and sharing the list with you all. Most of these are classics, I just needed to take the time to thank the authors. Please enjoy, and thank you a thousand times, to all the godly writers this fandom has been blessed with.
Slow Build/Burn | Good Angst
First Eruri fic I ever read, it is the reason I read hundreds more. WWII AU, featuring the perfect blend of amazing plot, realistic characters, and relationships that stay with the reader weeks after finishing. The characterizations in this are unforgettable, and you can never let go. I know I never will.
Canonverse. Could compete with any literature classic throughout the ages. Hands down one of the best things ever written. Kudos to you if you can finish this without crying. Being numb from grief so the tears won’t flow is cheating and doesn’t count. So poetic. Truly unforgettable.
Southern Gothic Modern AU. Engaging, suspenseful, satisfying, from beginning to end. Detective Erwin and Levi is just beautiful. A very thought-provoking and perfectly written read.
Future AU. I cannot express how much I truly love Nicole’s writing. The plot is so original and the characters are written so beautifully I would do anything to erase my memory so I can reread this again like the first time. This is just as applicable to all of her other fics which I’ve all read, and you should too.
Modern AU. Anything birbwin writes is a guaranteed masterpiece, Eruri Ficlets & Mc’Drabbles being proof of this (yes, including chapter 47). The Rat Catcher was so eye-opening and stimulating that it’s really a must-read for anyone and everyone. No-one’s the same after reading it.
Modern AU. Again, can never go wrong with lost’s writing. Beautiful, beautiful writing, and you hold such a strong investment to the characters. Really, just go have a look at everything they’ve written. So, so beautiful. Have I mentioned beautiful. Also the go to blog for any asks you may have to do with any canon stuff.
Canonverse. Had to put it somewhere, nevermind the header of slow burn. Of course, anything stereobone writes is a deserving classic, and this newest fic is no exception. Original plot, mysterious and perfectly written, it really encapsulates the essence of the characters, and leaves you wondering. A must-read.
Hilarious Comedy | Generally Fluff(?)
Canonverse. Featuring a very oblivious Commander, and extremely relatable Corps members. A second chapter was! just! added! and I have never felt more blessed.
Canonverse. I have never laughed so hard reading any multi-chaptered fic. Actually that’s a lie, Dirty Kisses (must read) got pretty close. I love them, and belied by engaging plot, they’re a must-read. The writing is exquisite and it only ever leaves you wanting more.
Canon…verse….? Featuring two very different (but also very much the same) worlds. Just read it, I don’t know what else to say. Guaranteed to make you tear up from laughing too much. I’d also highly recommend from Cherry, (everything they’ve written) but in particular Aversion (eye-opening angst); Celebrity Ballroom (mild angst but mainly not(?)) Remember Me and of course, Again. Have I mentioned how much i love Cherry’s writing? (I love it.)
I’d definitely definitely definitely recommend seeing @zedsdead1001 ‘s writing and art; @gouguruheddo ‘s writing and art; @valisi-clark ‘s writing , @erwinsalive ‘s art, @aileine ‘s art and animations, @seitsensarvi ‘s writing and art, gunpowderlatte’s writing and so so so many others like @blue-sonnet , @emmysmith , @hloneheart, @absolute-eruri-trash , who all made me and my tumblr dashboard always filled with such pure eruri happiness.
Once again, thank you all for making the past couple of years of my life so unexplainably enjoyable. And if you’re new to the fandom, lucky you, you get to discover all these amazing people for the first time.
