you cut me open and I keep bleeding love by fortunate folly
Serena and Bernie on holiday to the Amalfi coast. Sun, sand and serious sexual tension. Achingly beautiful slow-burn. The struggle of sharing a bed together.
don’t care what you’re doin’ (just keep doing it with me) by PotofCoffee
Bernie and Serena are on a cruise. Marcus is there. The solution: Fake dating. Sharing a bed. Blurring the lines. A lot. Delicious slow-burning.
Amnesia by RossettiMucha
Bernie wakes up thinking Serena is her wife. Pretend dating. The exploration of post-Kiev Serena and Bernie that is messy, beautiful, intelligent and captivating. A trope that transcends it’s near-cliché status and then some.
Make Believe by ddagent
A remake of an old Serena scene. Edward is troubling Serena. Serena needs a date. Bernie just so happens to be near. Clever and funny and sweet.
Major Arrival by ddagent
Enemies to friends to lovers? Who could resist. Bernie and Serene rub each other up the wrong way, then very much the right way. The exploration of Serena’s bisexuality is beautiful.

Fluff. Smut. Domesticity. AUs. Canon divergence. Just do yourself a favour and read it. Every single one. Maybe twice. Maybe more.
