The Velveteen Spider [DW notice | tumblr notice]
26k words | PG-13-ish | Natasha Romanova, Clint Barton, et al.

summary: Natasha Romanova thinks that accepting Nick Fury's offer to join SHIELD is the end of her old life and the beginning of her new one. In hindsight, she had no idea of what that really meant.

“You’re an idiot, Barton,” she said when he’d finished. “An amazing idiot.”

He made a dismissive noise as he shifted over to get up, presumably to go to the restroom. “Is that anything to say to your best friend?”

She looked up at him, shocked at the words. “Who says that you are my best friend?”

“You got any others?” he asked with a shrug. “Therefore, I am the best one.”

“That means you are also the worst one,” she called after him as he headed off, but she was just drunk enough for the words to float around in her mind like mosquitoes.

She remembered the conversation the next morning, when she dragged her hungover but far more sturdy self to SHIELD’s New York headquarters off Times Square to go get yelled at by Coulson in person. She could say that Barton was presumptuous for considering himself her friend, but it would probably be more truthful to say that he’d simply recognized it sooner.

That’s when she started calling him Clint, first in her head and then out loud. The first time, it slipped out and it startled her. Startled Clint, too, but he recovered and beamed at her and then continued driving like a maniac because it was the only way they were going to get out of Hungary alive unless they wanted to swim the Danube from Budapest to Vienna.

Title: Cup O’Kindness
Author: moviegeek03
Wordcount: ~2300
Fandom: Marvel
Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, Assorted Avengers
Rating/Warnings: PG-13; Drunkenness, violence, language 
A/N: This came to me on New Year’s Eve when I realized that 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of Bucky’s “death” and I began to wonder how Steve would handle that. This is my first full Bucky & Steve story ☺. 
Summary: The last year has been hard on all the Avengers, but Steve in particular. His search for Bucky keeps coming up empty handed and all trails have gone cold. The rest of his team persuades him to let loose and relax some for New Year’s Eve. He never realized it would be exactly what he needed, in more ways than one, or that a certain friend had been watching out for him all along.

I See Said the Blind Man (3852 words) by latbfan
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Daredevil (TV)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Matt Murdock & Claire Temple, Matt Murdock & Franklin "Foggy" Nelson
Characters: Matt Murdock, Claire Temple, Franklin "Foggy" Nelson
Additional Tags: Friendship, Missing Scene
Summary: Missing Scene from Matt's apartment between "Speak of the Devil" (1.9) and "Nelson V. Murdock" (1.10), or Foggy finally meets Hotty McBurner Phone.

There are a number of fics exploring this particular missing scene in canon, but this is by far my favorite of the ones I've read so far. The character voices are all perfect, and this fic has a particularly lovely take on Matt and Foggy's friendship, even during a time that's very difficult for both of them.

I participated in tumblr's BuckyNat minibang and, in a probably foreseeable result, utterly failed to follow directions and produced a long story of pure genfic.

Blues in the Groove
31k words | PG-13ish | Bucky Barnes, Natasha Romanova, Steve Rogers, Maria Hill, et al.

Bucky Barnes is in from the cold and ready to take the first steps toward resuming his life. He has all of his memories, but Steve isn't the only Avenger eager to have someone around who remembers their past.

A tale in which there are embarrassing Captain America stories, occasional realizations, swing-dancing SHIELD commanders, missions gone awry, culinary adventures, uncomfortable revelations, trips to Queens, bromances, romances, repeated threats of arson, and the couch is a metaphor.

I have a fairly extensive, screencap-laden squee/meta post about Agent Carter at my journal:

Contains spoilers for all aired episodes.

There is some very minor talk of shipping buried in the post, but as I'm primarily a gen fan, it's basically just a lot of flailing at their adorable faces with some character analysis here and there.

4800 words | pg-ish | Peggy Carter, Nick Fury (Steve Rogers, Tony Stark, Pepper Potts)
Nick showed up at nine and Peggy knew it was bad news because he showed up without dessert. (Sometimes the secrets kept between spymasters was that one of them had a sweet tooth and it wasn't her.) She still made tea because, despite more than sixty years in America, the British approach to trouble was still her default.

"We've found Captain Rogers."

"What did he say?" Peggy asks. English is the official language of the Rebirth lab, but Yiddish is the unofficial one, the language of frustration and jubilation and anger and affection. The project is documented in English, but it is lived in Yiddish and Peggy, like everyone else not already fluent in the language, has picked up words here and there. Mostly terms of endearment, addressed to both her and the test tubes of successful experiments, and the many (many) ways to call someone an idiot.

Inherited Characteristics [ DW | ao3 ]
2800 words | Tony Stark, Peggy Carter (Rhodey, Howard Stark)

It's 1986, the Sox are going to the World Series, and sixteen-year-old Tony Stark has just gotten himself arrested for trying to sell nukes to the bad guys.
"Are you my court-appointed nanny here to encourage me to tell the nice FBI men everything I know?" Tony asked brightly.

The woman — older lady, closer to Dad’s age than to Mom’s, not super-rich but definitely not a civil servant — arched an eyebrow. “Don’t you watch too much television,” she said in an English accent as she closed the door behind her and crossed the room, taking the seat on the other side of the table.

"My name is Peggy Carter," she said as she sat down, leaving her fancy hat on but taking off her gloves. "I’m a friend of your father’s."

It was Tony’s turn to cock an eyebrow. “You’re a little old for one of Dad’s friends.”

A story and its prequel, AU to both Captain America: the First Avenger and Agent Carter:

Premise: after the rescue of the 107th, Steve Rogers cashes in all of his favors and makes what deals he can to get Bucky a medical discharge from the Army, sending him home to Brooklyn and far from enemies and curious scientists both. But Steve's war goes on until it ends badly, in an exploding plane over the Black Sea. Captain America is presumed dead, his shield recovered and returned to a grieving America while his body remains undiscovered.

1500 words | Steve Rogers

1944: Steve at war, sans Bucky.

72K words | Peggy Carter, Bucky Barnes

1952: a new danger is threatening to unbalance the already-roiling Cold War: a Soviet assassin let loose from behind the Iron Curtain. Peggy Carter isn't sure she wants to believe that the assassin is a super-soldier because of what it could mean, but she does know that whoever it is, she'll have to break her promise to keep Bucky Barnes far from danger.

Title:   The SHIELD Codices: A Clear and Present Loki

Wordcount:  73,000+ over 34 chapters

Rating: 13+ for violence, some mild language, disturbing (Lovecraftian) imagery

Characters: Loki, Phil Coulson, Melinda May, Skye, Fitz, Simmons, and pretty much the rest of Season 1 Shield

Notes: The first part of a still-current series I'm working on.  I plan on posting more here in the future if no one minds; one other multi-chapter is done, a holiday one shot is done, and I'm presently in the middle of another multi-chapter piece.  The stories start off only slightly AU in terms of the events of S1 SHIELD and the Marvel movies, veering somewhat onto their own course now.  Character behavior is intended to be canonically themed.

Summary:  Loki is forced to see that all permutations of his future ultimately end at Ragnarok, and like so many iterations before him demands his own chance to unbind himself from an unwanted destiny. The odds are worse than terrible, but one path might be found in the company of his enemies: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. currently busy with enough troubles of their own.

If you've been waiting since the first time it was recced here, as a WIP, I have great news for you, friends: This, You Protect by [ profile] owlet wrapped up today at a glorious 64K.

It started off as a hilarious one-shot about the Asset's mission imperative switching from killing Steve Rogers to protecting him. As Barnes rediscovers himself and his humanity, he picks up an incredible cast of supporting characters (in every sense of the word) along the way. It's not just a long and funny story, though: it's got incredible heart and a poignant-as-hell look at what waking up in the future has done to everybody.

As far as I'm concerned, this is 33 espresso shots of pure joy, and every last chapter delivers. Do yourself a favor and read this. You'll be really, really happy you did.

Speaking of which, happy 2015, whether it's already reached you or if it's coming soon!

This is not a story about a cow.

Peggy's POV, Howling Commandos-era fic. The "hijinks & shenanigans" tag is absolutely appropriate here, and I cannot recommend it enough. (I know this says it is slash, but I didn't notice when I read it and the mods said it was appropriate, so!)
