there's no better spread

Fics of the Week!

So here is my first weekly fic rec! I think it’s a great idea to spread around some fics that definitely deserve some love and give some authors a boost that they might be looking for. I mentioned the idea earlier, and had a positive response, so I figured I’d give it a shot. 

I’ll be (hopefully) doing these once a week on Sundays. I’ll provide the titles with a link, the authors with a link to their ao3 (and tumblr if I know it), the rating, the fandom, main pairings, the status of the fic, the author’s summary, and some of my own thoughts. I will also put down any possible trigger warnings if they apply (such as self-harm or non-con, i’ll try to be thorough with these, but feel free to ask if you want me to include something as a warning) so that no one jumps into anything without being aware of what they’re getting into. 

Also, just a fair warning that these will contain personal favorites of mine, keyword being personal as in my own. Because of this, there will be bias as to the fandoms and ships, so I’m sorry if you never see any of your OTPs if I don’t particularly ship them. However, this doesn’t mean that you can’t do your own little fic rec or reblog these posts and add some of your own favorite fics! By all means, that’ll be great if someone covers fics from areas that I don’t really delve into. 

So with that said, here we go:

The Matchmaker

Author: Karasunotsubasa (@kuroohina )
Rating: Mature
Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Relationships: Kuroo Tetsurou/Hinata Shouyou
Status: Incomplete, 6/?

“It’s hard to be alone and happy, so when an opportunity presents itself in the form of his cousin’s best friend, Shouyou says fuck it and goes along with it, except… he doesn’t really know what he’s signing himself up for. Or how much it’ll cost.”

My Thoughts: AKA the KuroHina sugar daddy AU I never knew I needed, but Kat provided me with anyway (cuz she’s a fic writing angel that likes to tear out my heart)

Carrion Child

Author: SecretMaker ( @notsuchasecret )
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Relationships: Akaashi Keiji/Bokuto Koutarou/Kozume Kenma/Kuroo Tetsurou/Tsukishima Kei
Status: Complete, 1/1

“Kuroo, Akaashi, Bokuto, Tsukishima, and Kenma have their lives pretty much figured out.
But when Kuroo finds a baby abandoned on the side of the road, things change in ways none of them can imagine.”

My Thoughts: I am so weak for fics with baby!Hina, and this is one of my favorite authors so it’s no wonder that I loved it as much as I did

Tethered

Author: Day ( @yamayama–kun )
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Relationships: Hinata Shouyou/Kageyama Tobio, Sawamura Daichi/Sugawara Koushi, Kozume Kenma/Kuroo Tetsurou
Status: Incomplete, 3/?
POSSIBLE TRIGGERS: PTSD 

“Hinata and Kageyama are tethered souls, separated.

‘But which one was Hinata?’ Daichi asked after a moment. The monster or the weapon? The fire or the smoke? Daichi didn’t think it was possible to be one without the other.”

My Thoughts: Such a unique AU, and day is always such a top-notch writer

Hibernation

Author: Maiuzan ( @maiuzan )
Rating: General Audiences
Fandom: Haikyuu!!
Relationships: Kozume Kenma/Hinata Shouyou
Status: Complete, 1/1

“Kenma has dropped out of college and feels like he’s stuck in life. However, when Kuroo advises him to get a pet, he meets an interesting boy at the pet store, and his world starts moving again.”

My Thoughts: This is so very adorable, as KenHina often is, and this AU is so good for the soul I promise you

A Burger and Extra Salty Fries

Author: SportsAnimeRuinedMyLife 
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Fandom: Boku no Hero Academia
Relationships: Midoriya Izuku/Todoroki Shouto
Status: Complete, 1/1

“In his third year at UA, Todoroki Shouto works in a burger place, catches on fire and falls in love. Only two of those things are on purpose.
Or…Todoroki Shouto’s exciting adventures in customer service.”

My Thoughts: My favorite heroes working retail and at burger joints, what more could a lady want?
