Stuck in Florida because of Hurricane Sandy, so I might as well take this time to finish up the 30 day meme.

Day 22 - A canon pairing fic.

Fandom Category: Captain America
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: and don't you dare be late
Author: irnan
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/433715
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13
Genre: Time Travel!AU, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Steve's doomed romance in the movies just breaks my heart, so I love seeing them get a second chance in fic. This story features what might be my favorite Peggy/Steve reunion ever, ever, EVER. Seriously, ALL THE TEARS. And it's only one part of a series called interesting landings so you can get more of Peggy and Steve's story, if you so please.

Hi mods, may I have fandom tags for The Hardy Boys and Gundam Wing? Also I need pairing tags for Fujioka Haruhi/Haninozuka "Honey" Mitsukuni, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Hikaru, Fujioka Haruhi/Hitachiin Kaoru, Fujioka Haruhi/Suou Tamaki, and Sally Po/Chang Wufei. (Don't worry, all those anime pairings have been listed in accordance with the new policy on anime pairing tags.)

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/James "Bucky" Barnes
Fic Title: this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name
Author: Cinaed
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/492587/chapters/860851
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Genre: Angst/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Out of every Natasha/Marvel character pairing, Black Widow/Winter Soldier has to be my favorite. I love a good amount of angst in my pairings, and these two are absolutely fraught with it. This story explores the possible relationship that Natasha and Bucky had back in the Red Rooms and it is so beautifully crafted and nuanced that it's my headcanon now. Natasha is glorious in all of her assassin glory, intelligent and sharp and lethal, set against a backdrop of humanity and humor that few authors seem to give her. And when she cares...well. This is one of the best Natasha stories I've ever read, and the Natasha/Bucky bits are just the icing on the cake. Various warnings abound for violence, language, and horrible situations in general.

Mods, may I please have a tag for this pairing? Thank you!

I passed out immediately after work yesterday, unfortunately, so I'm bundling up the recs for the first 2 days.

Day 01 - A fic for your current favorite ship.

Fandom Category: Thor/The Avengers/Captain America
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: V is for Victory
Author: daniellemydear

Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13.
Genre: Time Travel!fic, AU
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Because time travel fic, yessss. Due to a rather convenient deus Loki ex machina, Darcy gets sent back to the 40s, where she's a famous Hollywood actress who runs into pre-serum Steve. There are no words to describe how much I love her Steve and I am fascinated by how Darcy's presence is shaping the events of the movie. This fic is super adorable and full of fun 40s/Hollywood trivia.

More Day 1: Darcy/Steve recs )

Can we have a tag for Stacey McGill/Sam Thomas please? Thanks~!

Or just one rec, depending on how you look at it.

Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: Mono (the Super-Soldier Serum Strand)
Author: Della19
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/457692
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: fix-it fic
WIP?:  no

Why This Must Be Read: From the title and the summary - which makes it clear Peggy has become immortal by kissing Steve - I thought this story was going to be pure crack. It is not. It's actually totally serious and not once does the absurdity of the premise hurt the issues dealt with here; namely immortality and what it means to face a never-ending future as well as the lies necessary to live that kind of life. Don't get me wrong, it's fun too. Peggy doesn't let immortality stop her from living. Her journey through the twentieth century is true to character and ties itself very nicely into canon. She meets several familiar faces from The Avengers film over the years but it never feels like the author is imposing or forcing Peggy into places she doesn't belong.

Rating/Warning(s): M
Genre: Friendship/Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Most Darcy/Avengers stories feature Darcy as the the pursuer, especially if it's a Darcy/Steve or Darcy/Bruce story. This is different in that most of the chasing and persuasion falls to Steve. Darcy's hang-ups about dating a superhero (especially one like Steve) are true to life and well-realized. I love that Steve isn't too much of the blushing innocent here because let's face it: he was in the Army, and Bucky was his best friend. This is a Steve that is pretty comfortable making the moves, even if he doesn't know exactly what he's doing. The humor and drama are well-balanced, and I love all of the team cameos. The crowning glory for me, though, is the author's portrayal of Steve. I dare you not to fall in love with him.

Fic Title: Skipping
Author: missmissa85
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7244706/1/Skipping
Rating/Warning(s): T
Genre: Friendship, Romance, Team Fic
WIP?: Yes (33 chapters and counting)

Why This Must Be Read: Where do I begin with this story? It starts off as another Darcy-tutors-Steve-on-the-modern-world fic, but missmissa85 does it so beautifully. The progression is achingly, deliciously slow but completely organic and true to the characters. Darcy and Steve start out as friends and slowly become something more. Trust me, the scene where the feelings come out is completely worth the wait. And all the while, the Avengers are slowly assembling and make up such a wonderful ensemble cast. Everyone's voice is absolutely spot-on. This is certainly an ambitious piece, incorporating Bucky, the Skrull, and even Spider-Man (who is adorable, by the way), which probably explains why it's a WIP. The author updates fairly frequently, though they have dropped off a little bit. I, for one, will cheerfully wait until hell freezes over for more chapters!

Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers, plus other pairings less central to the story
Author: [livejournal.com profile] roboticonograph
Title: Flames We Never Lit
PG-13 thus far
Links: Part One|Part Two|All Entries (reverse order)
WIP?: Yes
Summary: Peggy Carter is frozen in 1946 and awakened by SHIELD in 2012.
Why This Must Be Read: The premise is more creative than most; the language is beautiful; the characterizations are perfect. And their reunion? Heartwrenching yet hopeful. I can hardly wait to see what [livejournal.com profile] roboticonograph does next in this story!

Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Clint Barton
Fic Title: Cakewalk
Author: Edonohana

Rating/Warning(s): gen
Genre: post-movie
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Early on, he’d been surprised that she trusted him enough to sleep in front of him. Later, he realized that she simply hadn’t feared him. A lovely look at their dynamics, and how well attuned to each other there are.

Four more fics, including 2 more Natasha/Clint, 1 Maria Hill/Steve Rodgers (with past Steve Rodgers/Peggy Carter), and one Maria Hill/Phil Coulson. )

Fic Title: It Began with a Nap
Author: pervyficgirl

Rating/Warning(s): PG-13
Genre: Crossover
WIP?: no.

Why This Must Be Read: Five times Darcy had to sit through a Captain America lecture, five times Captain America had to sit through a Darcy lecture, and the one time they just agreed with each other. Or, as I like to call it, a study in how Darcy introduces Captain America to the new era. It goes about as well as you'd expect. ;)

Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Clint Barton, Jane Foster/Thor Odinson, some Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Fic Title: Gift of Asylum
Author: Sister_Wolf

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, violence, language, sexual situations
Genre: romance, (wacky) adventure(s), friendship, superheroes, humour
WIP?: yes, but it's really good and updated pretty regularly

Why This Must Be Read: Clint Barton had a drunk hookup at a bar two years ago. Darcy Lewis had a drunk hookup a bar two years ago. Oh yeah! And now they have to work together while Darcy gets hired to help run this new team called the Avengers. Basically, this fic is amazing and hilarious. Darcy is a particular gem here, but this is the fic that made me appreciate Clint Barton and how ridiculous his life must be. And how much he hates how Darcy has bonded with Tony because that's just dangerous for all. Joy to read!
