Bungou Stray Dogs Fanfic Recs

I’ve been reading a ton of fic for BSD and K and watching tons of music videos and inhaling fanart. The easiest stuff to sort out a reclist though is fanfic, and I know someone on my flist actually shares the BSD fandom with me, so BSD it is. (Someone get into K with me. All the feels. After the first season, I was a weepy mess, and the second season was good too. It has issues, but it’s good, and feels.)

These are in no particular order, except potentially order read backwards, but they are ones that made my favorite and to be reread frequently list. My favorite character is Chuuya. That will probably be obvious.

Summary:

“Yes?” He says. Only a few people would have the audacity to call him, and fewer still if there’s not an immediate emergency. He waits for a response. He doesn’t have the energy to put on his usual show, but he refrains from snapping. He makes a strange sight, a man standing in the center of an abandoned street, alone, half-lit by the filtered light strained through the heavy clouds, water gathering on the hem of his coat and dripping from the ends of his hair. He is completely isolated from the world, save for the phone in his hand.

“Hey.” An annoyingly drawling tone comes from the speaker. Dazai’s demeanor doesn’t change. He may have expected this. “We were supposed to meet with Boss Mori half an hour ago. Did you forget, you shithead?”

Chuuya’s familiarly cutting tone shatters Dazai’s isolation. He purses his lips.

If I were a good girl, I’d give you all full-blown comments on each of these. They’re a mix of stuff, some fun, most angsty, a crossover with a fandom I don’t even know (I don’t care, the story is awesome, I didn’t need to know the other fandom, and Chuuya was perfect in it), a PacRim fusion with disabled to due to injury and just soooo good, and all of these are excellent in one way or another, whether it’s the perfect, heart-aching addition to canon or a delightful, warm your heart AU. I love them all.
