On the Same Page – He’s got them bad boy blues

This week's fanfic read alike is an introduction to my latest fic obsession: He's got them bad boy blues by blueyedgurl. This fic has everything I wanted in my life that I didn't know I needed. Ostensibly this is a high school AU where reformed but quiet bad boy Ben Solo gives wallflower Rey a…

On the Same Page – The Eagle and the Hawk.

Today's read alike is an underrated historical AU that I am so excited to share with you. I solicited one-shot recommendations on ye olde Twitter and was treated to several delights (stay tuned to this space for more), but an early stand out was The Eagle and the Hawk by Everren. The Eagle and the…

On the Same Page – To Be Seen, To Belong

I get a lot of fic recommendations on Twitter--yes, I'm blessed with a great feed. A few weeks ago, I saw a lot of tweets about a one-shot called To Be Seen, To Belong by reylo_addict. I gave it a read, almost on a whim, and was blown away. To Be Seen, To Belong is…

On the Same Page-Secret Garden

I've been writing fanfic read alike posts for some time now, and I have a number of authors who I regularly read, so it was surprising to me when I realized I've never done a read alike post for hi_raeth. Because hi_raeth consistently writes some of the sweetest fics and anyone who knows me knows…

On the Same Page-Anyone Else

Anyone who knows me, and not even that well, knows I love a happy ending. So this read alike post is a little different for me, in that this post features a fic with an ambiguous, open-ending. The fic is Anyone Else by beccastanz, and it will break you, but you'll be thankful for it.…

On the Same Page-Wintertide

You know how there will be a fic that you will see recommended a lot, and it looks intriguing, but for whatever reason, it takes you forever to read it? And then when you do read it, you're like "OH WOW. I get it." That's Wintertide by Zabeta for me. This is a unique Reylo…

On the Same Page-What You Deserve

Welcome to 2021 and another year of fanfic read alike posts! Writing this post continues to be one of my favorite things, and I want to thank all of you for reading and all the authors for continuing to generate so much wonderful content. In What You Deserve by Celia_and, Rey and Ben have hooked…

On the Same Page-Till the Winter Gets Me

The holiday season is not my favorite time of year, but I do like to indulge in holiday fics, usually extra wholesome and fluffy and tropey. An author I've come to truly enjoy for beautiful writing has some festive treats is Kate_Reid. A heartwarming story that is long enough to tantalize your imagination and open-ended…

On the Same Page – Playing House

Amidst the current discourse related to happy endings, I feel the need to share what is secret to no one: I like fluff and happily-ever-afters. Real life is hard, and I enjoy the comfort of happy stories. But every once in awhile I come across something that gives me a sucker punch right in the…
