Any fics where Clarke meets lexa and she's like athletic and hot
okay, well, i’m gonna answer this in sections, mostly for my own shits
first up are the fics from my sports au tag that i’ve already read and enjoyed enough to have posted them! so like, these fics come with my stamp of approval basically
Love Me ‘Till My Heart Starts - ok so it’s not exactly your traditional hot athlete lexa. she plays golf. clarke plays golf. but objectively, they are both very hot and they are both athletes and this is a great fic so there.
break your plans - lmao i feel like this fic has been around since the Beginning of Time but it’s still going strong and i love that! lexa’s a Hot hockey player, so there you go. feat. friends with benefits with accidental feelings so you can’t go wrong.
Pancakes - lexa is a hot soccer player and she is very hot and that is a problem for clarke and also me
But still good - so lexa’s a soccer coach, and as we already established, objectively hot. but real talk, this is one of the best and cutest fics you’ll ever read REC REC REC REC
Thirty-Two Minutes - lexa’s a (hot) star basketball player but she’s also a tragic homosexual and keeps getting distracted by the (hot) blonde cheerleader from the other team on the sidelines. gdi lexa
jump then fall - really really really really cute high school au where lexa plays hockey and, bonus, is hot
Gold - yoooooooooooooooooooo. remember that olympics thing people wouldn’t shut up about this summer? WELL. clarke plays soccer and lexa swims and they meet and it’s pretty hot. and great. and amazing. and this is a great fic.
HSAU - lexa is on the football team and she is really hot and this story is really cute!!!!
this one gets its own section, idk
A Soccer Love Story - ok i actually did read this one awhile back, and funny enough, i’ve been meaning to come back and reread it. lexa’s a soccer player for the US women’s national team (so of COURSE she’s hot) but when i read this i didn’t even know who they were. so a lot of this went over my head. since then, however, i’ve become about 1000% more invested in soccer and i’d probably enjoy this much more (clarke and lexa are still v cute but the fic is a bit heavy on the uswnt stuff). so just be warned! it was a great fic though and even though i didn’t understand a lot, i remember i couldn’t stop reading it so that probably says something :)
the following fics are ones i bookmarked AGES ago to read for another sports au rec i never answered, but i never got around to reading them. so i’m going to share them with you, but i can’t personally recommend them. let’s hope lexa’s still hot though!
No One Else Like You - The story of how Clarke and her friends just want to play hockey and Lexa just wants to professionally skate, but there’s only one rink at the university. or the story of how Octavia and Raven (and company) have always been little shits except now on ice.
picture this - Ice Hockey Player Lexa is injured during a game and ends up needing phsyio (and guess who is her physio therapist ?) Or: Lexa thinks her physiotherapist is cute
The Weekend -
Lexa is a professional soccer player and she’s got a simple, semi-charmed life. She’s never dated, not finding any need to. Her roommate Raven and her own a house in Polis, but Raven is away when one of her childhood friends comes to the house in need of help.
How big, how blue, how beautiful -
Clarke plays tennis for her team in Ark University, Lexa for the Polis University. They’re rivals. What happens when you fall for the one person you’re not supposed to?
and uh, this one, idk, it’s been on my list to read but i haven’t gotten around to it
Waiting for Love to Strike -
After the death of her father, Clarke Griffin had lost everyone that she had cared about and all she had left was the sport that made her feel most connected to him. So with nothing left to keep her home, the college freshman left for her first year of school with a hope of replacing all that she`d lost. But when her new soccer captain, Lexa Woods, turns out to be more of a dictator than a teammate will Clarke find that she’s in over her head? Or will she find herself ready to take the plunge when love strikes?
