K-pop: this summer's crazy, man by cyphers
Summary: Jungkook is cool, calm, and confident, and Jimin is sick of it. High school dance crew AU, sort of.
Reccer's Notes: A really fun AU with pigtail-pulling-style teasing/frustration that plays out exactly the way you want it to. (Warning for peer-pressure drinking.)

K-pop: give blood: play rugby by anaplian
Summary: Hyelim's not desperate for it, she just appreciates Juhee's perfectly built body. And her laugh. (all-girls' school rugby AU)
Reccer's Notes: I don't know much about Hello Venus, but I liked this so much: it's hot and the characterisation is delightful. I love the way Hyelim's fantasies about Juhee intersect with actual Juhee.

Sooyoung, the coach, walks in and claps twice, and beckons the three of them towards the rest of the group. Hyelim drags her feet to make it to the back of the crowd behind Yoonjo and Yooyoung. It’s only once she peers between the shoulders of several taller girls that she sees a girl standing by Sooyoung. Her hair is dyed a bright blonde and she’s watching them guardedly, with a hint of disdain. She must be grades above them, but she doesn’t look any older than Yoonjo.

“I don’t know who that is, but I want to impress her,” Hyelim whispers out of the corner of her mouth.

Pacific Rim: You Like Me by dutchydoescoke
Summary: Ridiculous small-town high school AU.
Reccer's Notes: Stupidly adorable in just the right way.
Newt catches him doodling Mr. Raleigh Mori on his notebook (he was daydreaming and it so was not his fault) and won’t stop giving him shit, but who cares. (Newt and Tendo have been teaming up to duct tape his mouth shut when he starts talking about her. They know she’s pretty, and intelligent, and can kick his ass, and they really don’t want to hear about it again.)

They could be considered friends, technically, Mako and Raleigh, except Mako’s, like, a genius, and Raleigh’s average and she is so out of his league, it’s not even funny. (Really, it’s not, and Newt and Tendo can stop laughing right the hell now.)

Summary: A high school AU in which no one goes to school, ever. Liam has a crush, and then he runs into his crush at a party, and everything gets very complicated.

Pitch Perfect: The Party's Crashing Us by sexonastick
Summary: Beca has never been big into high school activities, but sometimes desperate people do desperate things. Like show up for marching band and get stalked by the creepy redheaded cheerleader who won't leave you alone.
Reccer's Notes: This is so great. It has the movie's half-mean/half-fond funniness and approach to relationships, and the best Beca voice; she's a misanthropic loner and kind of a jerk and, as the author comments, she thinks she's hilarious. Aubrey as Chloe's best friend is also a highlight.

Summary: For the kmeme: "Alex and Hank were two teenagers who frequently fight in school. One fight got so bad that the principal called in their fathers (as both came from single-parent families)/ guardians for a conference. This was how Charles and Erik meet."
Reccer's Notes: Yikes! I'm reccing high school AU fic, which is totally not my cup of tea. Couldn't resist, though, will read almost anything by that author. Good thing, because this one is awesome! Kid Fic of a sort, because parenting the high school aged characters is a huge part of the fic. Hilariously funny!

One Direction: we go together by aliferuined
Summary: T-Birds are forever. Very, very, very loosly based on Grease. It's basically a whole bunch of pining and quiffs.
Reccer's Notes: Despite the summary, this is enough of a Grease AU to qualify as a fusion in my book. Super sweet, with quite a delicate negotiation of the time period.

Summary: Wherein Joe breaks up with Taylor, Demi doesn't have a love life, Selena's in love with her best friend (her other best friend), and Taylor writes a lot of songs.
Reccer's Notes: A really fun, sweet high school story, with multiple POVs and a lot of making fun of Joe Jonas. I really like this Demi, and the way Taylor reacts to her.

Homestuck: Promstuck by Cephied Variable, urbanAnchorite & shelby
Summary: This is a story about love. This is a story about betrayal. Of heterosexuality, Heee Haw, and growing up.

This is a story about prom.
Reccer's Notes: Promstuck is an epically ridiculous and charming fanadventure hosted on Tumblr, meaning it's told with illustrations accompanied by text in the style of the webcomic. It's self-indulgent and hilarious and awesome in exactly the right high school AU style, with really fun character dynamics.
Your name is KARKAT VANTAS and your LIFE IS OVER. AGAIN.

Senior prom. Many a romcom has assured you that this is the highpoint of your natural life, and that after this your happiness will hit the road, Jack. Youth, innocence and joy will be tossed down the gaper. You will be left to moulder at the top shelf of life’s pantry, sort of like an abandoned taco kit.

Bandom: 24 Frames Per Second - The Belleville Fright Night Experiment of 1984 by lea_ndra
Summary: 1984: With new multiplexes opening up all over America, the run-down Belleville Film Palace is probably the least exciting place to work at for a teenager. Except if you’re a movie nut like projectionist Gerard and his closely knit circle of loser friends. When cocky and confident Frank joins their team as an usher, Gerard really doesn't think he'll stick around. Besides, there's something about Frank that just rubs Gerard the wrong way. Then an unforeseen event threatens the future of the movie theater and Gerard starts to question things he's always taken for granted...
Reccer's Notes: This is another one of those fics that's very hard to stop reading once you start. The characterizations are excellent and this Gerard is immediately endearing. For anyone who likes movies at all, reading about the history of film and the intricacies of film projecting should increase interest in this fic. The technical components are explained in a way that is engaging rather than tedius. The time-period is written incrediby well. The details about the social atmosphere in America in 1984 add a sense of place that grounds the fic in reality and makes it feel much more genuine. Gerard's struggle as he explores his sexuality is written amazingly well. A wonderful story.

Summary: Tintin/Haddock SLASH. High school AU with swapped ages where Tintin is a strict 40 year old teacher, and Archie Haddock is an 18 year old trouble student who has to do extra work for detention.
Reccer's Notes: Bianca Castafarina is well known for her really delicious Haddock/Tintin art, but she also writes fanfics that are just as scrumptious to read. This age swap hot-for-teacher fic is wonderfully fascinating, and not just because Tintin is an older man here (and vice versa for Haddock).

Criminal Minds: down the road (and to the left) by darthjamtart
Summary: Spencer Reid is turning 12 and about to graduate from high school, but he’s finally made friends: there’s JJ, the soccer-playing, straight-A student who used to drink too much; there’s Penelope Garcia, the pigtailed hacker who wears the brightest-colored clothes Spencer’s ever seen; there’s Derek Morgan, the football player who defends him from the other jocks; there’s Emily Prentiss, the friendliest goth in town (not that there are many in their small, rural town); there’s Dave Rossi, in his second attempt at senior year — but only because he refuses to finish his missing PE credits. And there’s Aaron Hotchner — Hotch — who just wants to date Haley Brooks, but doesn’t have the faintest idea how to do so.

High school is hard enough as it is, but on top of that, someone is drugging and raping girls at parties. As they learn more about the attacks, it becomes clear that Spencer holds the key to figuring out who is responsible, and saving one of their own.
Reccer's Notes: adorable, hilarious high school AU, in which they're still catching Foyet. Sort of innocent and all sorts of really, really not (serial rapist, anyone?).

Bandom: Most Likely To Succeed by jedusaur
Summary: "I bet he has an art teacher seduction strategy," says Ryan dourly. "I bet it has its own file on his computer. I bet it's got bullet points."
"Five of them," says Spencer cheerfully. He's prepared. - The one where Spencer puts "Seduce Gerard Way" at the top of his goals file for his last semester in high school.
Reccer's Notes: This was so much fun. I'm not particularly interested in the Panic guys but I really liked this sharp and snarky Spencer and the systematic way he goes about seducing Gerard. I loved seeing Gerard through his eyes, in all his excentric and charming glory, and the subtle way Spencer's growing fondness was written. The sex at the end is smokingly hot and their conversation the morning after absolutely perfect.
