Avengers fanfic

“When you get to the end of all the light you know and it's time to step into the darkness of the unknown, faith is knowing that one of two things shall happen: either you will be given something solid to stand on, or you will be taught how to fly" - Edward Teller

Astlyr has been through hell and back and is trying her best to take control of her life after everything that has happened. Just when she thinks that all pathways to the truth, were closed, another one opens up. What she doesn't know however, is that things are not what they seem. Something big is coming. Something no one had visualized in their wildest dreams that'll make them question everything. Prepare for the lines of good and bad to get real blurry.

Continuation of my work, 'Light at the End of the Tunnel'. Can't be read without reading that one first, so if you didn't, go read it here!

Suggestions please! Share your thoughts! Wanna tell me my writing sucks? Go on. Wanna shower me with praise, you're most welcome! I love reading your comments. Note: The tags are not in order and I keep updating them. I write in British English.

American Captain

  • Recommended by: Nightsky
  • Status: ?
  • Synopsis: Comic series in which Steve Rogers tries to adjust to his new life. It's not always easy. Scratch that—it's not ever easy, but Steve still has to sort through his issues—his survivor guilt, his PTSD, his alienation from all he ever knew, his mixed feelings about SHIELD—and navigate his relationships with his colleagues, alleviated only by his friends and the occasional good day. Heartbreakingly good.
  • Notes: The link seems to be broken as of December 2016.

scifigrl47

  • Recommended by: Ramber
  • Comments: scifigrl47 is an amazing writer, the majority of which is slash but her plots are well executed, planting innocent objects around her scene so nonchalantly, you barely realized that a major turning point of the story had just passed.

valtyr

  • Recommended by: carzla
  • Comments: valtyr writes fics for The Avengers from 616-universe to Ultimates to Marvel Adventures and movie-verse. They're all largely slash of the Steve/Tony variety but her writing distinguishes every iteration of Steve and Tony in the multiverse from their counterparts, so even if you didn't notice before, you'll know which universe you're reading about through her characterizations. Also, her longer, plotty fics are a joy to read. The first Avengers fic I read has been recommended below, Secrets of a Successful Marriage, and everything else she has written will definitely appeal to someone.

     General Fics 

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

Agent Loki International Man Of Mayhem by Dee

  • Recommended by: Aethyria, Mooncinder, Ragnar The Semi Green
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Synopsis: What if, instead of sending the defeated Loki back to Asgard, S.H.I.E.L.D. had kept him instead?
  • Comments: Written in 2nd Person POV, this is totally a fic all Avengers fans should read and it is definitely one of my favorites.

Age of Ultron: Redux by letmetellyouaboutmyfeels

  • Recommended by: LordYAM, hubakon1368
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An alternate take on Age of Ultron by someone who wasn't impressed by the movie.
  • Notes: Can be found here. Alternate links here and here.
  • Comments: Overall, an interesting take on the movie. Some of the elements were wonderful (they incorporated the twins' backstory, the final battle is great, and some of the ridiculous stuff like Natasha thinking she was a monster because she was sterile rather than because she killed people is changed); on the other hand Vision was removed and Ultron is reduced to basically being Thanos's minion (he even says he's "following orders".)
    • hubakon1368: This is a definite improvement over the movie, the elements of the movie that were controversial were removed, and the new elements included in the story were great. I appreciate the author for having Betty Ross appear in the story as well as the appearances of Pepper Potts, Jane Foster, and Darcy Lewis. The reference to who the Maximoff twins' father is is great. The action scenes were well written. The climax of the story was incredible. The characters moments were genuinely touching. I love how the author really made the Avengers feel like a team. This story should have been the movie.

Amateur Theatrics by galaxysoup

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In which Thor's primary problem-solving method (a mighty blow from Mjölnir) fails to have the desired effect on a magical artifact, and his secondary method (a mightier blow from Mjölnir) proves to be actively disastrous.
  • Comments: A sweet-hearted and sincere fic involving a surprisingly complex kid!Loki and the Avengers' unsure attempts to help him fix a magic spell gone ridiculously wrong.

Avengers and Videogames by Melting Angels

Body to Body by quijonejinn

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In March, Steve goes home to his old neighborhood.
  • Pairing: Pepper/Steve
  • Comments: A very sweet, non-angsty, Steve-centric fic about him adjusting to his new life and finding a place for himself in 2012.

By Any Other Name by Cypress Tiger

  • Recommended by: fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Fearing that her family fortune would be lost to the untrustworthy Stane, Natasha Stark illegally answers a draft notice and escapes to war. As a young noble woman living in a patriarchal society, her military service is forbidden. Impersonating a man, she sets out to train with the other troops only to discover that she is uniquely qualified for the army. Using her wits and skills, Natasha and her new group of friends work together to destroy the enemy known as Hydra. Despite her best efforts to remain unattached, she falls for a dashing captain along the way.

Cat's in the Cradle Lunik

  • Recommended by: Newt, Katie-P
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Odin took a half-Jotun baby out of a temple in Jotunheim, he wasn't the only one to claim to be the child's father. As his mother, Laufey King cheerfully refused to settle any dispute and soon there was at least one person in every realm who laid their claim as Loki's father. Except for the mortal creatures of Midgard, that is. Tony Stark thinks this needs to be rectified. And Loki Tonyson has a nice ring to it.

Daktoa for One by Ordis

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He doesn't know why he is standing here in front of the prisoner, trying to persuade it to eat. If it does not deserve what it has, it killed thousands. Refused them the Tesseract and forced them into a war they never wanted. It deserves no mercy. And yet, here he is.

Don't Call Us, We'll Call You by Vana Jedi

  • Recommended by: gondorianAssassin
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Fury forces the Avengers to hold job interviews for a new position.

Dopplegangers by nom*stars

  • Recommended by: Zephyr7, Ellawenna, Pthalo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synoposis: Steve makes the mistake of taking Thor to the zoo. Tony makes the mistake of buying nine penguins. Everyone else thinks they've made the mistake of joining the Avengers in the first place
  • Comments: The Avengers and penguins together are an instant win. Thor naming all the penguins with variations of Tony's name was hilarious, as well as the rest of the Avengers' reaction to the whole thing.

Drown by Ordis

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Three months after Operation Avengers all is well. Or is it? When Steve and Tony hack into SHIELD to find missing weapons shipments they find more than they bargained for in the form of a prisoner who should, by rights, have been sent to Asgard long ago.

Every Denny's in America by Sookie Starchild

  • Recommended by: Oris, Ellawenna, caughtbluehanded, yosafbrige
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Thor and Steve are definitely not hiding in a Denny's restaurant. Because Thor doesn't hide and Steve doesn't run away from his problems.
  • Comments: A very fun little bro!fic for Thor and Steve.

Forcible Redemption by Sarah1281

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Loki had given a lot of thought to what his punishment might be but this one might be the worst of all. Apparently he was going to be redeemed. By THOR. That was such a bad idea it was painful. Where was an abyss to be thrown into when you needed it?

Glorious Purr by PurpleMoon3

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In which AVENGERS goes far, far differently and Loki has grown himself cat ears and tail while in the VOID.

Hawkeye & Black Widow: Sight Unseen by Fenix84

  • Recommended by: Pistachio Infernal
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Agent Clint Barton is plagued by doubts about himself and the nature of his job. Assassin Natasha Romanoff is living a lie that cannot last. Though they fight for opposing sides, they are both among the best in their deadly profession. What will they find in each other when they inevitably clash?
  • Comments: While there are many 'Clint recruits/saves Natasha' stories out there, there are very few ones worth reading. This is one of them. Fenix84 writes it like a good adaptation to a good movie.

Inverted Perceptions by archangelraphaelsdaughter

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: While Loki is imprisoned in the aftermath of his defeat, a foreign disc arrives on the Helicarrier and the Avengers watch Loki's degeneration. The Avengers watch the movie Thor. Now, in knowing Loki, they begin to wonder at the motivation for his most recent actions, and who else was involved in directing the Chitauri army.
  • Notes: First in the Compare and Contrast the Following series, followed by its sequels Enlightening Nuances and Cementing Heritage, as well as the collection of scenes Despite Circumstances.

In Which JARVIS Is Mistaken For by BringOnTheWonder1997

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: This will be a series of one-shots (probably short ones), in which JARVIS is mistaken for something else. Please feel free to send in ideas.

In Which The Avengers Take Exception to the Army Meddling In Their Affairs by megster

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes, Melek, Ellawenna
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: General Ross decides to take on the Avengers. The Avengers decide to take down General Ross.
  • Notes: Part of the The Further Adventures of the Avengers (and Phil Coulson) series.
  • Comments: Because the Avengers are protective of Bruce.
    • This whole series is worth taking a look at, especially if you're a fan of Team!Fic.

The Iron Man Thing by Ironychan

  • Recommended by: wolfchasing
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After inviting Dr. Stephen Strange to his home, Tony wakes up the next morning to find that his AI has undergone a very fleshy transformation.
  • Comments: Stemming from one of those Tumblr fic photosets, ironychan has written a very fun, very thoughtful, and very plot-heavy story where JARVIS has been magicked into a human body. Perfectly deals with the consequences of forcing an all-knowing computer into the frail, limited body of a human. The AI's meat-suit is inspired by the looks of real life JARVIS voice actor, Paul Bettany.

It's All in the Mind by inukagome15

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense, Melek
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tony is 100% normal. Tony is not a mutant. Tony is Iron Man. Tony is an Avenger. Tony...is just fooling himself.
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve
  • Notes: Has a sequel, Telekinesis 101 (Or A Guide to Readjusting Perceptions).
  • Comments: A beautiful fic that logically ties in Mutant!Tony with canon.
    • Hilarious, but in need of a good Beta to shore up some internal inconsistencies.

The Joke by Imbecamiel

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense, feral, Victoria Writes, caughtbluehanded
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Steve's not usually oblivious - far from it, in fact. But he does have his moments. Like when he didn't realize that the team was actually serious when they talked about Mjölnir being a magical weapon that only Thor could lift.

Life in Reverse by Min Daae

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: Home is where you make it. Or, the AU where Loki falls to Earth after Thor, wanders around trying to work out what to do with himself, and somehow ends up working for SHIELD. Mostly because supervillains are so plebian.

Loki and the Penguin Liberation Front by LulaMadison

  • Recommended by: CasualBanshee, Ellawenna
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Penguins in zoos all over the world suddenly vanish. The Avengers are sent to investigate.
  • Comments: Though this is a crackfic, it doesn't diminish the quality of the writing or humor whatsoever. Guaranteed to at least raise a few chuckles.

Loki is Sorry Cakes by anno_Hreog

  • Recommended by: ghostchibi
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Years later, Loki has to repay New York City for leading the Chitauri attack. He opens "Loki is Sorry Cakes", which has lazy business hours and very tasty cupcakes and muffins for free. Thor was being sarcastic when he said Loki could at least bake muffins...
  • Comments: A crack-y, hilarious fanfiction that's just kind of pokes fun at every given corner. It's extremely silly, but doesn't turn into one giant, boring joke about superhero cupcakes. If you need some silly Avengers and Loki, read this.

The Lost by VeritySilvers

  • Recommended by: Marlee Cross
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Jane Foster's niece Maddie is sixteen days old when she is stolen out of her crib. The Avengers won't stand for this, and are faced with human trafficking rings, undercover assignments, and far too many moral dilemmas as they investigate and attempt to bring her home again.
  • Comments: For anyone looking for a real plot heavy fic that also has some really great character interactions and development.
    • Unfortunately has not updated since 2012. What is there is still pretty good and well worth checking out.

Motion Practice by the_wordbutler

  • Recommended by: Hawk Of Coul, Paul A
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Clint Barton takes a job prosecuting traffic offenses and DUIs at the Suffolk County District Attorney's office, he's pretty sure his life is finally going in the right direction. But the problem isn't the direction: it's where he ends up.
  • Pairing: Clint/Coulson
  • Notes: First part of the Motion Practice series.
  • Comments: An amazing Alternate Universe Fic which makes good use of setting and characters, giving complexity and humanity to every character.

Of Spectrums and Spoons by atraphoenix

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Natasha had been taught to pretend — to make eye contact and to act and respond just like she was supposed to act and respond — from an early age.

Paranoid by TheSweetSerenity

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: They called him paranoid. Pepper preferred the term cautious.

Phil Coulson is not a crazy cat lady by nyargles

  • Recommended by: Ellowen, Aruu, Secret Fan 14, cxw1065
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An AU where the Avengers are not a superhero team, but rather a group of cats that Phil Coulson has rescued from various encounters with aliens and villains, who in turn adopt him and terrorize everyone else in the SHIELD office.
  • Notes: First part of the Catvengers series.
  • Comments: could not stop laughing.
    • A funny and oddly sweet fanfic! For something that is essentially crack, it's very well written and fits nicely into the Avengers universe. Highly recommended. - Aruu

Prince of Asgard by MatrixFairy

  • Recommended by: fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: An Avengers version of The Prince of Egypt, where the jotun are slaves under the aesir and Loki was found in a basket on the river.
  • Pairing: Tony/Loki
  • Comments: Despite what the summary implies, this is not just a Cookie Cutter Fic. Warning where it's due - some characters are out of character, the pairing might be considered a little cracky (it's Loki/Tony) and there is mpreg. But, if you can cope with all that, enjoy!

The Protective Reasoning Universe by Dogstar-Black

  • Recommended by: behindthesky, Ellowen
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: The lives of the Avengers as they knit together into a beautifully overprotective pack: dark pasts come knocking, team bonding is done, and stuff blows up, not necessarily in that order.
  • Notes: Includes Protective Reasoning (complete), Home Sweet Home (complete), Ties That Bind (complete), Retrograde (dead), and Repercussions (dead).
  • Comments: anyone with a taste for True Companions fic should take a look at this one. Especially recommended for Hawkeye lovers, the author is a fan of badass Clint and it shows.

Silver Moon by aurilly

  • Recommended by: Komodo Classic
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Steve and Bucky find a weirdly dressed guy in an alley who rants at them about how he's a banished prince from some place they've never heard of. Most New Yorkers would have left the lunatic right where they found him, but Steve and Bucky have never been good at doing things the easy way.
  • Comments: Basically, Loki is banished instead of Thor, but it happens earlier. Loki ends up in Brooklyn on the eve of World War II, where he runs into Bucky and Steve. It's a oneshot, but rather long.

Simply Indispensable by spockside

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes, Mooncinder, Ellawenna
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In which bullies from Darcy's school days take up where they left off, unaware of the team that now has her back.
  • Comments: It's a good hurt/comfort, but characterization choices leave it very YMMV.

The Spaces Between by Min Daae

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: There's a theory that goes that there's a universe created for every possible choice you make in life. Loki's made a lot of choices. He could make a lot more. Or, the one where Loki wanders through AUs of his life and it starts messing with his head.

Syrgja by Lady Charity

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: None of this was supposed to happen. SHIELD wasn't supposed to find Thor and Loki on Earth three years after the battle. Loki wasn't supposed to be a silent shadow of who he once was. And the Avengers...weren't ever meant to have to endure the madness that would follow.
  • Pairings: Loki/Natasha

Tony's New Assitant by MarbleGlove

  • Recommended by: Newt, Katie-P
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A trickster god does not go about acquiring power by brute force. AKA, the one where, instead of becoming a supervillain when he fell to Earth, Loki somehow ended up as Tony Stark's personal assistant.

User Since by rageprufrock

  • Recommended by: Wild Goose, Newt
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: PC's internet forum tries to find him after The Battle of New York.
  • Notes: First part of the Howling Commandos HQ duology.
  • Comments: A heartstring-tugging story of how the members of a Captain America forum that Phil Coulson founded try to track him after the events of The Avengers, and deal with their loss. Bring tissues.

A Villain State of Mind by Mikkeneko

  • Recommended by: Eldresh, Mooncinder
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: To no one's pleasure, Loki ends up stranded in SHIELD custody after the events of The Avengers. Wary of Loki's dangerous abilities, Nick Fury calls in the favor of an old friend to help him keep this new threat under control - but can even the formidable Professor X save Loki from himself?
  • Notes: First in The Great Subconscious Club series, followed by its sequels Cover Up the Sun, Laughing As I Pray, Quiet Little Place, and So Busy These Days.
  • Comments: Sort of a crossover with the Marvel universe at large, bringing in some other comic and movie characters, but with a focus on Loki and the X-Men that remains very intriguing. Definitely worth taking a look at if you're a Loki fan.

Vindices by Riddelly

  • Recommended by: Nothingtoseehere
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The Church of the Holy Shield, run by Pastor Nicholas Fury, has always communed with angels. Yet when the mysterious artifact they've long housed, the Tesseract, is stolen by a green-eyed creature claiming to be the very Devil, the six most powerful and deadly of these supernatural beings must band together to fight what may be their most costly battle yet.
  • Comments: Basically, an AU where the avengers are angels, Loki is the devil, and SHIELD is a church. And it is awesome. Just know that the avengers will be called by the names of angels, so: Black Widow- Raziel, Hawkeye- Uriel, Iron Man- Gabriel, Captain America- Micheal, Thor- Ramiel and the Hulk- Ezekiel. Its all obvious in the text though.

Winter is Coming (Just Not to Malibu) by Anonymous

The World Without by mikey magee

  • Recommended by: Gemini24
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Loki is gone, and all the nine realms are safe. But is a world without the Trickster really a place to live in? What happens when the peace they all wanted slowly turns on them, and the only one who can save them is the one who no longer is.

You'll Find the Bright Places by BlackEyedGirl

  • Recommended by: Zephyr7
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Fury temples his fingers together. "Tell me how this started?" Phil tries to give a reasonable report of today's incident. As he spent most of his day trying to keep grade-school aged versions of his team away from a team of gunmen, he has only limited success.
  • Comments: An absolutely adorable and awesome kidfic where Papa Wolf Coulson has to make sure his little charges are kept safe while he takes care of those coming after them.

"Avengers: Earth's Mightiest" by [burningvindaloo]

  • Recommended by: jl94
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: A classic superhero story about the best heroes fighting the best villains. The story is large in scope and has some fun banter between the characters. You can really picture the story occurring on panel. Wikipedia might be required to google some of the characters and the description sometimes isn't the best. But overall an enjoyable Avengers story that I would recommend.

     Shipping Fics 

Stories focused on the romantic relationships between the cast.

Absolute Necessities by MLGumm

  • Recommended by: openseseme
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Bruce has serious intimacy issues. They are explored.
  • Pairing: Bruce/Tony
  • Comments: I don't know how, but MLGumm tends to say a lot of things in very few words. In a single word, I would mainly describe this fic as "thoughtful." If you want something short and sweet, with a tendency to linger in your thoughts, give it a try.

The Affairs of Wizards by Pluma Desatada

  • Recommended by: Cinnigan, Glass Spires
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tony Stark, playboy billionaire genius, is the CEO of the world's number one manufacturer of Anti-Psionic technology, like his father before him, and his grandfather before that. Loki Olson, a warlock raised by the staunchest supporter of anti-magic regulation, dreams of a better future where he no longer is a fugitive hunted by the government, and fights to make it happen.
  • Pairing: Tony/Loki
  • Comments: An AU fic with a very good plot and extremely good characterisation. Actually follows the plot of the movies quite well, given it's obvious AU-ness. The pairing is frostiron, but this is a well told story as much as it is a shipping fic. Definitely worth a read.

Does Joss Whedon Write Your Dialogue? by longdarkteatime

  • Recommended by: Melek, Pthalo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Everyone gives Tony the shovel talk, even the people who ought to know better. Plus, sort of a fixit, in that The Thing That Joss Did, Joss did not do. I explain nothing.
  • Pairing: Clint/Tony
  • Notes: Part of the Dodgy Chinese series.
  • Comments: The team isn't filled with confidence by Tony's dating history, and tells him so. Tony does not take this well. Neither does Clint. (Also:the author is serious about their run-on-sentence problem.)

Even a Miracle Needs a Hand by victoria_p

  • Recommended by: Victoria Writes
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Darcy takes Clint home for the holidays as her fake boyfriend, he charms his way into the family, and into her heart.
  • Pairing: Clint/Darcy

Hapless Queer Avengers by bluestalking & feverbeats

  • Recommended by: NightRobin
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: ?
  • Pairings: Tony/Steve, Thor/Bruce, Loki/Victor von Doom, Natasha/Janet van Dyne, Sif/Fandral/Hogun/Volstagg
  • Comments: This series the coolest mix of headcanon, movie verse and comics that I have ever seen. All the characters are wonderfully explored and even if you don't like the pairings you can skip the sections where the slash is obvious.

a higher form of war by gdgdbaby

  • Recommended by: hazzaboner
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve
  • Synopsis: The first paintball episode of Community except set in the Avengers Universe.
  • Comments: The best crossover that isn't a crossover ever.

Imperfect Mirrors by Sineala

  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark, Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
  • Synopsis: A 616/MCU crossover where Tony Starks from two universes meet in difficult times.

I've Suffered Shipwrecks by paperclipbitch

  • Recommended by: pandabuddha
  • Status: Complete
  • Pairings: Clint/Loki, Steve/Thor, Jane/Darcy
  • Synopsis: AU. Most people, when they break up, sort through their record collections, possibly chuck each other’s clothes onto the sidewalk, engage in soul-destroying coffee dates where they try to sort through the emotional debris, and then leave each other the fuck alone. Clint and Natasha were never very good at acting like normal people, though, which is why they run a cafe together.

The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark by jibrailis

  • Recommended by: Lydia 777
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: After contracting an Asgardian virus, Tony starts forgetting things. And people. And Steve.
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve
  • Comments: This story is beautiful and is considered the crown jewel of the Tony/Steve fandom. A slow building romance coupled with the horrors of losing one's self and topped with pure Norse mythos will keep you reading until the end.

lilies with full hands by refusals

  • Recommended by: WhatTheSpoot
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: His body is not his own. This may not be the first thing they teach him, but it's the first thing he learns. When Steve finally brings Bucky home, they realize the fight isn't over yet, and trauma is one battlefield where even Captain America isn't sure he can save somebody.
  • Pairing: Steve/Bucky
  • Notes: First part of the give lilies with full hands series.
  • Comments: This is one of the most sensitive, realistic and respectful hurt/comfort fics out there, and deals with the fallout of trauma in a way that's both extremely compelling and extremely well-researched. It also reads like poetry, and its characterizations of both Bucky and Steve are excellent. Lots of cameos by Sam and Natasha, too (this is actually one of my favorite Natasha fics, even though she's rarely in it). Seriously a must-read.

The Loki Problem by elizamechanicka

  • Recommended by: feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Loki catches a cold and his magic goes crazy. The Avengers are being taken out one by one...
  • Pairing: Loki/Tony

Loki's Obsession by bboops23

  • Recommended by: moviemaker16
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: After failing to take over Earth Loki has returned to Asgard and become King due to a series of events. He kidnaps a Midgardian that he's been stalking for most of her life and forces her to become his queen.
  • Pairing: Loki/Original Character
  • Comment: Loki's portrayal in this fan work differs after the events of the Avengers and includes some of the events of Thor: TDW. Loki's portrayal is written as a combination of his Movie appearances with a smattering of his mythological backstory and it creates an unforgettable villain turned Deuteragonist.

Malibu Avengers by cy_chase

  • Recommended by: Elven Bookwyrm
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Phil Coulson has spent half his life working toward the Stanley Cup. The Malibu Avengers might finally be the team to take him there.

  • Recommended by: Purple Alert
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Steve walks in on Tony and Bruce, and it changes everything.
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve/Bruce
  • Notes: Part of the Perspective series.
  • Comments: Probably one of the defining fics for this OT3. Excellent writing and character voices, sweet without being saccharine, and just all-around good. It's the second in a series of three, but it can be read on its own just fine.

  • Recommended by: fruitstripegum
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Being a single parent is always a challenge - especially when you are Director of SHIELD. Faced with a hyper-intelligent and overly energetic five year old, Nick Fury discovers that hiring a nanny might be the only option.

  • Synopsis: After the events of Civil War, Steve is brought back to life. He reconciles with Tony and they proceed to save the world.
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve
  • Notes: First part of the Resurrection-verse.
  • Comments: Called the original fix-it, it's the first and one of the best Steve/Tony long fics. It's amazingly written, plot-heavy, doesn't ignore other characters and deals with loads and loads of post-CW issues.

Secrets of a Successful Marriage by valtyr

  • Recommended by: L Mage, Pthalo
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tony Stark is secretly Iron Man, corporate supervillain and proud card carrying member of the Avengers' Rogues Gallery. Now this wouldn't be a problem, if he had never learned that his husband Steve was Captain America.
  • Pairing: Tony/Steve
  • Comments: Inspired by Mr. & Mrs. Smith (2005), this fic is the most well written Super Husbands AU you will ever read. Also featuring Supervillain side-kick Pepper, flying vintage cars, Ms. Marvel as the most reasonable person ever, and fish.

Some Things Shouldn't Be a Chore by scifigrl47

  • Recommended by: openseseme, Melek, feral
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tony builds himself friends, and gets assigned a family. It's so much more than that, really, but there's no way to explain it any further without giving away too much.
  • Pairings: Steve/Tony, Clint/Coulson
  • Notes: Part of The Toasterverse.
  • Comments: It's the single most hilarious, touching, and well-written fanfic this troper has ever read. If it gets any better it may qualify for better than cannon status, and considering the movie it's based on, that's a real honor. Seriously, if you love the Avengers you will love this fic.

So No One Told You by Kari_Kurofai

  • Recommended by: ultrawolf
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Between them there're three apartments, a disgruntled downstairs neighbor, and a coffee shop with a barista who threatens them with tasers. Which, as a whole, that description sounds way more simple than it actually is.
  • Pairings: Steve/Tony, Loki/Thor, Loki/Tony, Bruce/Clint/Natasha
  • Notes: Part of the Friends!AU series.
  • Comments: A hilarious Friends!AU that is gradually getting more serious with each new chapter.

     Crossovers 

Avengers of the Ring by Dr Matthattan

  • Recommended by: Nano6243
  • Crossover with: The Lord of the Rings
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Due to a freak accident involving the Bifrost, the Avengers Captain America, Thor and the Hulk are thrown into the world of Middle-earth. They join the Fellowship of the Ring in their epic struggle to defeat the Dark Lord Sauron.
  • Comments: Don't come into this expecting an epic. It's a decent, light hearted fic, with some pretty original concepts, but the dialogue is both quite cheesy and fairly clunky at times and the plot is fairly simplistic.

Child of the Storm by Nimbus Llewelyn

  • Recommended by: Theenmityofages 1994, SuperTulle, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Crossover with: Harry Potter
  • Status: Complete.
  • Synopsis: New Mexico was not the first time Thor had been a mortal. It was only a refinement of the technique. What if James Potter had been Thor, incarnated as a memoryless newborn? On his death, Odin removed his memories as James, due to grief. In Harry's Third Year, a reformed Loki restores them. Harry now has a father, a family and a heritage that is going to change the world. Forever.
  • Comments: It starts out as a light-hearted and somewhat sappy fic to begin with, before changing gears around chapter 11, quickly growing into a far darker and more complex story than the premise would have you believe. The result is an epic which emphasises the responses to the premise and the effects those changes have and how various characters evolve in response to the challenges presented. It's also equipped with a vastChekhov's Armoury, and apparent inconsistencies can and will come back up to 74 chapters later as Foreshadowing. It's also entirely unafraid to push the boundaries of the T-rating as far as they'll go with some very dark chapters, and a growing onset of Black-and-Gray Morality, killing off multiple characters. However, there are plenty of Breather Episodes in between the serious action/plot heavy chapters, and they, along with a Lemony Narrator and an unspoken belief in heroes, prevent the fic from sliding towards Grimdark territory.
    • It's not perfect, however - entire chapters go by without much, if anything, happening and asides are dedicated to relatively meaningless things. In other words, the author is rather in love with the sound of his own voice and doesn't have a proper beta to cut out some of the more extraneous material. It comes off as more preoccupied with Character Development and Worldbuilding than developing the plot, at least at first (the two-shot spin-off, written around chapter 60, shows that he can be concise and to the point) - the first proper battle isn't until chapter 44. In other words, at 80 chapters and over 800,000 words (and that's just the first book...), written over a period of just under four years, this is not a fic for a light read. It is best binged over a weekend, and most likely to be enjoyed by those with patience.
    • Furthermore, a repeated complaint is that the villains come off as omniscient and, at times, omnipotent. The Word of God response is to point to the fact that they lose every single open engagement they get into with the heroes and that HYDRA are deeply embedded in the highest echelons of the most powerful spy agency the world has ever seen, of course, they're practically omniscient. Not, of course, that this saves them in the end.

Different Kinds of Frost by DarkDragonne

  • Recommended by: Twoie92
  • Crossover with: Rise of the Guardians
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Before he became a guardian, Jack found only one person who could see him. And that person turned out to be not quite human... and far too similar to Jack himself.
  • Comments: It's surprising to see just how alike Jack and Loki are, but at the same time it makes a lot of sense. Both are portrayed very well.

Elastic Heart by IncompleteSentanc

  • Recommended by: Dame-Amaryllis
  • Crossover with: The Hunger Games
  • Status: Dead; last updated October 2016
  • Synopsis: One by one, the Avengers are dragged into the Games — and not all of them come out on top.

Embrace the Fire: The Avenger Games by lorata

  • Recommended by: Aethyria
  • Crossover with: The Hunger Games
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: "Trust me, and I'll give you something better than a Mockingjay. I'll give you the Avengers."
  • Comments: It's the one of the most heart-stopping, well-written piece of crossover fic that I've ever seen. The story is fast-paced, with unexpected twist and turns, and oh-so-deliciously dark, it'll send chills down your spine and leave you wanting more.

Fight the Good Fight by Independence-Day & JonHarper

  • Recommended by: keen320
  • Crossover with: Harry Potter
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Two worlds, one defined by ancient magic, the other modern science, are about to collide in the ultimate clash of civilizations when a long lost secret is found and threatens to destroy them both.
  • Comments: Stated to be rated M with the genre "Adventure/Romance," so it may go into shipping eventually, but nothing definite so far.

Finding Home by cywsaphire

  • Recommended by: autopanda, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Crossover with: Harry Potter
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: When Harry finally accepted the fact that he had stopped aging, ten years had passed and he knew it was time to leave.
  • Notes: Has an approved fan-sequel, Falling Skies by LockedOwle.
  • Comments: Go read this. Now. It is extremely well written. One of the few complaints I have, is that Harry has the overused backstory of being the master of death, but the rest of the fic is excellent. The author also redeems Loki. Also, the author has some midquels to it and other HPxAvengers crossovers that are great. There are too many to link though.

In the Midst of Liars by Bookish Cupcake

  • Recommended by: chibima
  • Crossover with: Doctor Who
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The first encounter is as survivor and child. The second is as rescuer and fallen god. The third may be their last. Each time the Doctor returns, he wears a new face. And each time, the darkness grips Loki tighter.

In Which Neither Coulson nor Sherlock are Dead by TheDullYellowEye

  • Recommended by: bookwormgal, Pthalo, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Crossover with: Sherlock
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: ...and John sort of joins the Avengers. While Coulson's recovering from being stabbed in the chest by a magical spear, Fury is rapidly running out of Agents willing to play babysitter for the newly founded Avengers. So he calls in Captain John Watson, late of the British Royal Army, and blogger and best friend to the infamously antisocial presumably deceased Sherlock Holmes.
  • Comments: Set after The Avengers and Reichenbach Falls. Because even a team of dysfunctional superheroes can't faze that man after being a roommate to Sherlock Holmes and John needs something to occupy his time with. And the Avengers are in desperate need of a babysitter that can deal with their level of insanity without running away.

It's My Problem by Namikaze_Artemis

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense
  • Crossover with: The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: In which Peter is Tony's illegitimate child, and he's prepared to do anything to keep that a secret. Although, that doesn't stop him from trying to get Tony's approval. He is Peter's idol, after all.
  • Notes: First part of the It's Somebody's Problem series.
  • Comments: This fic is one of the rare gen superfamily fics out there. The author has a realistic take on the illegitimate son idea, and doesn't choose to rush things for the sake of fluff.

Seven Ages of Man by Salomonderiel

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense
  • Crossover with: The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: He wasn't entirely sure when he first met Richard, and when he asked about it for his Best Man speech a few years later, it turns out, neither does Richard. But somehow, Tony made a best friend in the biochemical engineering department.
  • Comments: A little short, but still very satisfying.

SHIELD Investigation by Wednesday0991

  • Recommended by: Lucia Malpense
  • Crossover with: The Amazing Spider-Man
  • Status: Dead
  • Synopsis: Phil Coulson is investigating the events in the Amazing Spider-man for SHIELD. Interrogating Curt Connors eventually leads him to discoveries he hadn't expected.
  • Comments: One of the best SHIELD discovers Spider-Man fics out there. Very good writing. It was last updated in September 2013.

Wand and Shield by Morta's Priest

  • Recommended by: throwaawy, Magic Kirby
  • Crossover with: Harry Potter
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: The world is breaking; war and technology are pushing on the edge of the unbelievable, and S.H.I.E.L.D. desperately attempts to keep the peace. Their newest target is a man called Harry; he is capable of impossible feats and has no clear origin or allegiance. A new piece on the chessboard, one that doesn't follow any of the rules.

What the Cat Dragged In by Kryal

  • Recommended by: raptyr, Mei-may, Clato Lawa, Storygirl000, Dame-Amaryllis
  • Crossover with: Miraculous Ladybug
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Tony's pretty sure it's written into cosmic law somewhere: superheroes are not supposed be cute. Apparently, no one's told these two. He's okay with that.
  • Notes: Alternate link here.
  • Comments: Kryal is a masterful writer and worldbuilder, whose works have been recommended on TV Tropes before. They bring that same level of mastery and thought to What The Cat Dragged In, a wonderful look at how the Avengers would react to the events of Miraculous Ladybug. Told from an outsider perspective, it isn't the average Miraculous Ladybug fic, and stands all the more strongly for it.
    • Seconded. I felt that the explanations for some things went on a bit longer than I wanted, but I enjoyed the story regardless. And Akuma!Tony/Peacemonger was handled excellently.

From the Ashes by Boltstrike58

  • Also on Fanfiction.net.
  • Recommended by: Love Luigi 4 Ever 915
  • Crossover with: My Little Pony.
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: The war between the Avengers is over. Neither side has won. The team is scattered. All Tony Stark, Steve Rogers, and the others can do now is try to adjust to this new status quo.

Until now.

Pursuit of mysterious thieves leads the Avengers to a new planet, populated by...colorful talking ponies. Oddly enough, these ponies may actually know something about conflict resolution and personal problems. The Avengers had better listen, because only together can they stop a sinister force that plans to bring both Equis and Earth to their knees.

White Houses by LittleMissLiesmith

  • Recommended by: Hannah Hypolita
  • Crossover with: Harvest Moon: Animal Parade
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: After the events of The Avengers, Loki falls again, this time to Midgard—specifically, a small island called Castanet. Peace can never last long, however, and the arrival of just about everyone who's ever even mildly disliked him rather complicates matters.
  • Comments: The idea of Loki as the player character promises fun and the author has promised appearances by the Avengers and the Warriors Three in another thread.

You Must Remember This (otherwise forget it) by yuma

  • Recommended by: SharonToggle
  • Crossover with: Inception
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Captain America and the Howling Commandos are prepping for a mission, but everything seems slightly off somehow. Plus there are those two odd new corporals...
  • Comments: A beautifully subtle character study of post-Avengers Steve. Alternately hilarious and heartbreaking, the climax will make you cry in the best possible way.

Gen

Team!fics (Avengers)

5 Times Spider-Man Saved an Avenger’s Ass (and 1 Time They Saved Him) - What it says on the tin. Going through an angsty Spider-Man phase. I regret nothing. Angst/Hurt/Comfort. I really enjoyed the plot because it allows the reader to discover Spiderman’s abilities and heroics alongside the Avengers. It also gives enough time and insight into Spiderman’s character as he aids the Avengers in and out of battle. Complete. 

A Hand in My Direction -  Steve helps the Avengers. The Avengers help Steve. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. A story in which the team grows closer and Steve begins to accept his new home. Well written and characterized. One-shot. 

A Very Good Team - Conversations between the Avengers plus a little action. Random timeline, strictly movie verse. No slash. Not compliant with Cap2. Ch66-“Thanksgiving” Ch67-Avengers talk about Christmas songs in “Avengers A-Caroling” Ch68-The Avengers meet Santa (sort of) in “A Visit From St. Nicholas” Ch69&70-A scientist plots to kill a super soldier and his knockoff using “Gas.” Ch71-“Pi Day” Friendship. One of the behemoths of the Avengers/Marvel fandom. Cap centric with some real gems here. I can’t recommend this story enough. WIP, series of one-shot and small story arcs.

Absolutes - “Everything,” Steve says. Tragedy/Family. Steve is willing to give up anything for his team because they mean everything to him. The team doesn’t realize this until it’s too late. Well written and angsty. One-shot. 

American Dreams - Series of drabbles from the life of Steve Rogers, AKA Captain America. Drama/Adventure. Well written and well executed for the most part. It’s an enjoying series in places and a bit boring in others. WIP, series of one-shots and small story arcs.

Birds Eating Other Birds - Peter wishes he hadn’t gotten out of bed that morning. Then, maybe, he wouldn’t be reduced to this—limp-crawling through the rabbit burrows that is Oscorp Tower, a monster of a man on his heels, bloody and bruised and choking on a panic attack. Hurt/Comfort/Horror. Spiderman is captured and tortured and crying for help. No one answers and Peter has to face this horrific circumstance by himself, afraid that no one will come to his aid, that he isn’t worthy of it. One-shot.

Blood, Sweat, and Fears -  No one noticed how badly Steve was injured until it was almost too late. Whump, angst and Loki two-shot. Hurt/Comfort/Drama. Steve was shot in the battle of Manhattan, the team doesn’t notice it until he almost bleeds out. With no way to get transportation out of Manhattan and to a medical facility equipped to handle a super soldier the team has to set up their own triage. It’s not the best characterization out there, but the writing is believable. Two-shot, abandoned.

Bucky Remembers - Sometime down the road, when Bucky Barnes has recovered many of his memories, the Avengers use him to learn more about their reticent captain. Not that Cap thinks Bucky is always right. Ch1-Introduction. Ch4-Steve as a Boyfriend Ch5-When Steve said “I Love You” Ch6-What the Future Holds Ch7-“The Dating Game" Friendship. Using Bucky to satisfy the curiosity of the Avengers is a great way to explore Steve’s background without being heavy and awkward with the exposition. It’s a good story and a great companion to it’s parent fic “A Very Good Team.“ WIP, series of one-shots and small story-arcs. 

Cap’s Shield: Versatile in Vibranium - Five times Steve repurposed his shield to help the Avengers, and one time he needed it as a weapon. Not as Cap-centric as the description might indicate, because Cap keeps loaning the shield to the other Avengers. The stories take place between CA: TWS and Avengers: AOU, when all the nut jobs come out of the woodwork and the Avengers try to fill the void left by the fall of SHIELD. Friendship/Adventure. A fun series covering many of the unconventional uses for Cap’s shield and the shenanigans the Avengers get up to. Ranging from humorous to very serious, the stories do a lot to shine a light on the different sides of the team’s personalities as well as their conventional expectations. Complete. 

Edge Case - When Steve suffers from heat stroke on a mission, Tony and Bruce make some modifications to his uniform. Based on a spoiler-free photo from the Cap 3 set. Absolutely no spoilers for AOU or Cap 3. No slash, no ships. Hurt/Comfort/Frienship. Tony and Bruce help to take care of their teammate. The friendship between the three is heartwarming and Cap is very well done. One-shot. 

First Defense - AKA: Five Times Steve Protected His Teammates and One Time They All Protected Him. Fluff abound! :D Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Watching Cap work hard to save a team he has come to love is a good touch.  One-shot.

Fitting In (Tiny Spaces) - Peter’s trapped beneath a collapsed building during a mission, hurt and unable to move. Luckily, his comm still works. Unluckily, the Avengers don’t realise how bad of a state Peter is in, and Peter isn’t inclined to tell them. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Poor Spiderman is injured, confused, and just trying to keep it together around a team he doesn’t quite feel a part of yet. His teammates wished he would have said something sooner. Well written and characterized, this story looks at Peter’s place on the Avengers through a battle and injury. One-shot. 

(go home) find yourself happy - Peter is kidnapped, tortured, and almost killed by the Green Goblin. When he reaches out for help, he’s denied. This is the aftermath. Angst. A direct sequel to Bird’s Eating Other Birds, this story follows Peter’s adjustment to life after his encounter with Green Goblin. From how he processes the assault and it’s aftermath, to how he deals with the adults in his life who realize they unwittingly and majorly screwed up, the story follows a remarkably human Peter Parker in all his awkward and angsty glory. One-shot.

In Your Corner - Five adults who try to be the reasonable authority figure Peter needs in his life post-homecoming and one who was there all along. Family. After everything that’s happened in his life, Peter deserves people who will stand by him. This story highlights just a few of the adults who want to be there for the obviously struggling highschooler. Complete. 

Let’s Take a Day - The day of the Battle of Manhattan was full of drama and danger. The day after was no picnic either…or what happened when Tony Stark woke up with two assassins sitting on his bed. A Very Good Team-fic. Friendship. After the chitauri are defeated the Avengers find themselves in war again, this one of the PR variety. Trying to clean up New York is a tall order while also trying to make sure the teammates are seen in a positive light. Not the best writing, but a pretty creative and original series. Complete. 

Like Today Never Happened - No one should be able to just steal Captain America’s health. The Avengers are all agreed on that. And yet there Steve is: stuck in a hospital bed with a whole slew of medical issues - and nothing about this is remotely okay. They’ve got to make this right. They’ve got to fix this. It’s just going to take a while. OR Steve is reverted to his pre-serum state, and the Avengers deal with the fallout. Family/Hurt/Comfort. One of the best Cap loses his serum stories out there. I really love this series, it’s long enough to flesh out a lot of the themes, yet short enough to keep the reader’s attention. Complete. 

Looking for Answers (From the Great Beyond) - After the Battle of New York is over, and Loki and the tesseract are returned to Asgard, Steve takes a road trip across the country, and tries to figure out what he wants to do next. Friendship/Drama. Steve tries to find himself in a new century. A pretty good read with an exploration of the country through Steve’s 20th and 21st century eyes. One-shot. 

Making Sense of Chaos - Spider-Man always hit the attempted rapists the hardest. This was not due to some kind of personal connection. It wasn’t. Drama. This is probably one of my favorite Spider-man stories to date. It doesn’t shy away from complicated and nuanced politics as well as character portrayals and the complexity of emotion. Overall, the plot handles the aftermath of sexual assault in a realistic and gritty manner, without being graphic. A++ Complete. 

Not a Perfect Soldier, But a Good Man - Only family can let you go and carry you at the same time. When Steve is injured in battle, he begins to understand. No slash. Hurt/Comfort/Family. Steve disobeys an order to save his teammates. His team in turn help him get through. Mainly friendship between Steve, Tony, and Bruce. The ending is much better than the beginning. One-shot. 

Running on Empty - Steve is always hungry. (Or the care and feeding of one Steve Rogers.) Friendship. After his transformation, Steve’s enhanced metabolism Steve needs to eat more. Wartime isn’t exactly a time of plenty. The people in Steve’s life always make sure he gets more to eat. A good plot. One-shot. 

Selective Service - After the serum, there’s a lot of tests. Speed, endurance, lung capacity. They want to know if it worked, if it made him not just taller and broader but better. The results are enough to warrant champagne all round. Steve can sprint faster than a horse. He can keep running for over 24 hours. He can hold his breath under water for thirty minutes. “You’re perfect,” says Howard, grinning and raising his glass in Steve’s direction. Steve doesn’t have a glass. Not much point wasting champagne on the man who can’t get drunk. “Nobody’s perfect,” he says. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. Some of Steve’s conditions carried over and his team has to deal with the consequences. This is well written and well conceived. Complete.

Seven Thirty Seven - Steve hates airplanes. He calls them flying metal death contraptions. Also, they’re terrifying. Angst/Family. Steve has to face a psychological battle against his fear of flying. The team has to calm him down and show their leader that they are there for him. Accurate depictions of a hyperventilating panic attic. One-shot. 

Shattered Ice - Steve Rogers closes his eyes. And Captain America opens them. “I’m fine.“ Drama/Hurt/Comfort. Cap goes into freezing water after a fallen teammate. The Avengers don’t realize anything is wrong with him until he breaks. Well done and very inventive use of POV to really capture an eerie atmosphere. This was a very good and accurate look at how Cap’s time in the ice affected him. One-shot. 

Shock Factor - Super soldiers have amazing metabolism which is great for healing super fast. It’s not so great if the super soldier needs anesthesia. Tony Stark has this stuff covered though because if there’s a will there’s a technological way. The problem with coming up with amazing technological solutions is that eventually you get in a situation where you have to field test them. Hurt/Comfort/Angst. The team has to deal with a fallen captain. It’s not so much the injury that unhinges them as it is the inability to help their leader. Enter Tony, his technology, and an agonizing test of everyone’s nerves. One-shot. 

Spider-ling, Spider-Boy, Spider-Man - Peter Parker, aka Spider-Man, has finally joined all our favorite characters in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! This is a growing collection of semi-connected one-shots that explore some of the possible interactions MCU!Spider-Man could have with the Avengers, the relationships he could form, and the many fun and entertaining situations that could result. Friendship. Peter manages to get acquainted with several of the Avengers and also manages to land himself in several different situations with them. I enjoyed some of the one-shots better than others, but this is still a good series. WIP, series of one-shots with no unresolved story arcs. 

Stupid Cephalopods and Aching Arachnids - This is a conversation we can have with the kid later. Peter closed his eyes as the archer talked. And we will be talking to you about this, Peter. He said firmly. And why did Peter feel he was in trouble? Hurt/Comfort. Peter tries to take care of his injuries by himself when he really should have asked for help. His teammates are not pleased. One-shot. 

The Elevator is Worthy -  A very short little offering on what I would REALLY have liked to see in a post-credits scene (ala the Shawarma scene from Avengers). Humor.  I really wanted this to be in the end credits! This scene is well staged and the dialogue is pretty good. One-shot (written and formatted as a script scene). 

The Hard Way - Steve and Tony are about to learn their son is a better liar than they ever dreamed. Angst/Hurt/Comfort. Poor Steve and Tony get blindsided by Peter’s secret identity when they are called in to the hospital for a severely injured Spider-Man. Very well written with Tony and Steve trying to come to terms with why Peter would have lied to them and Peter trying to recover both his health and his pride. Also, can I just say that superhusbands/superfamily is my favorite trope? Because it is. One-shot. 

The Itsy Bitsy Spider - Osborn leers over him, rain and yellowed blood rolling down his green chin and dripping onto Peter’s mask.“You have no idea how I have longed for this.” The Goblin whispers hotly in Spidey’s ear. “To watch Spider-Man die at my hand.” Hurt/Comfort. Peter gets in way over his head with Green Goblin and the Avengers have to pick up the pieces. WIP, abandoned. 

The Kids Aren’t Alright - “Steven?” Thor called, his voice sickeningly worried. “Anthony?” His tone had Tony trying to push the blood out of his mouth to respond, but the words were swept away before Tony could choke them out. (Or, the one where the Avengers go on a mission and everything is alright until it isn’t anymore.) Family/Hurt/Comfort. A mission goes wrong, Steve and Tony are of course the ones who bear the brunt of the damage. This story is mainly an excuse for me to read about team bonding and Tony overcoming his insecurities that he’s a horrible teammate. One-shot. 

The Sacrifice Play - “Sir, your reactor can no longer sustain that level of power,” JARVIS warned. “It will cause a crash.” - The team is in trouble and the odds aren’t great, so Tony plays the sacrificial ram. Again. Team centric. No slash. Hurt/Comfort/Family.  What is says on the tin. Tony really does love to play the hero, even when his team begs him not to. Two-shot, complete.

The Sergeant and the Captain - The Sergeant and the Captain, or, The True and Accurate Reports Chronicling the Well-being of the Shield-brothers James Barnes and Steven Rogers, Faithfully Submitted by Thor Odinson to Maria Hill, Director. Friendship. Hilarious and such a good idea to use Thor as the POV for Steve and Bucky’s relationship. Overall a wonderful and entertaining read. One-shot. 

this condition is neurotic - They lock Steve in a freezer for 34 hours. It takes much longer for him to thaw. Angst/Hurt/Comfort. An examination of PTSD and anxiety in the aftermath of an all too familiar fate for Cap. Psychological thriller pure and simple. I had a tendency to get a bit lost at points in the story, but I believe that was the point. Two-shot, complete. 

Those Who Suffer Together -  If they can make it through the night, they know things will be okay. In the aftermath of the Chitauri attack, the Avengers return to Stark Tower to lick their wounds and find comfort in each other. One-shot, open ships, team as a family. Hurt/Comfort/Family. The Avengers recover from the Battle of Manhattan and begin to learn to take comfort in one another. Okay writing and concept make for a pleasant read. One-shot.

To the Bone - Five times Steve worried about each of the Avengers and one time they worried about him. Adventure/Hurt/Comfort. Cap takes care of his team that he has come to greatly appreciate. Getting to see the team returning the favor and Steve so perplexed that he is valued as Steve is amazing. Really well done all around. One-shot. 

Under My Skin - “He’s lucky – to have the serum, to have you all.” Tony wasn’t sure about that first part. When one faced death and destruction every day on the job, there were many advantages to having a healing factor…and a great many disadvantages as well. Hurt/Comfort/Drama. Cap has to undergo surgery with nothing to dull the pain, the team has to be there to hold him down. The experience is traumatic for everyone. Well written portrayal of medical procedures and emotional responses to agony. One-shot. 

Steve, Tony Friendship

At My Feet - It’s Steve’s job to make these decisions, even if they crush him. Luckily, Tony knows how to help. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. Steve makes a difficult decision that ends up costing some civilians their lives. Tony is there to help him pick up the pieces and keep his head on straight. Well written and from one of my favourite authors in the fandom. One-shot.

Atlao - Tony stares at the blinking timer and collapses against the wall. “Steve. Steve, I can’t carry you.” Hurt/Comfort/Family. Tony tries to save both himself and Steve. Eventually the Avengers come to their rescue. I really enjoyed the evident friendship and trust between Steve and Tony in this story. One-shot.

But a Memory Revisited - Steve, in a plane, hurtling towards the frigid ocean. Only this time he’s not alone. Hurt/Comfort/Suspense. Every time Steve tries to fly a plane, he nearly ends up dying. I really enjoyed Tony trying to assure Cap he wasn’t alone this time and Thor, as a man who has led soldiers for centuries, tried to calm Cap down from PTSD. Overall, it’s a great story. Bonus points for Wizard of Oz cameo. One-shot. 

Color Spectrum - Its really hard to play it cool with a broken wrist and a dislocated shoulder, coupled with an unconscious Captain America who may or may not be bleeding to death internally against the wall of a subway tunnel. Lots of random stream of consciousness/nervous babble from Tony :D No slash, just bromance! Rated for language. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Stream of consciousness in places. There are some tense issues and some awkward dialogue, but beyond that it’s a good story. One-shot.

Ditched - A titanium hand pressed down with incredible force over his own, attempting to staunch the bleeding. Tony’s other hand cupped Steve’s face, slapping his cheek vehemently and yelling. He then moved on to Steve’s shoulder, shaking it violently. “Wake up! Goddamn it, Rogers, wake up!” hurt!Steve and mild hurt!Tony. Written as gen but can be interpreted as you please. Hurt/Comfort/Angst.  During a battle, Captain America is injured and believed dead. Iron Man and the team have to deal with the aftermath. Well written and well characterized, one of my favourite stories. One-shot.

Don’t Tense Up - The Trials and Tribulations of Creating a Painkiller for a Super-Soldier in Tights: a story by Tony Stark. Family/Hurt/Comfort. Cap has a super metabolism, one of the downside is that it renders painkillers and anesthetics useless. Tony is determined to change this. The interaction between the team all around as they try to help Cap through injury and pain is great. The banter between Jarvis and Tony is golden. Well written and very well characterized. Can’t recommend enough.  One-shot. 

Even Heroes Have the Right to Bleed - Steve is homesick for his time and sets out to clear his mind, but when he comes across a man named Schmidt, blood is spilled and he goes missing. Knowing something is wrong, Tony is left to find him. Hurt/Comfort/Angst. Bringing in Cap’s background a bit here and the lingering effects of his actions during wartime. Not a very original series or particularly well written, but still a good read. Some of the background characters are really fun. Complete. 

Hell is Cold - Tony is angry. And Cap is freezing. They both pretend not to notice until they can’t anymore. Hurt/Comfort/Tragedy. Tony is more bitter than he realizes and ends up insulting his dying comrade. This is an interesting story overall, not very convincing in places but still very intriguing. Two-shot, complete. 

I Fell Heavy Into Your Arms -  Tony and Steve catch each other, both figuratively and literally. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. I love this story because it plays off of a fear that both Cap and Iron Man have. It also shows them as equals, often having to bail each other out dangerous situations. One isn’t constantly in peril and the other constantly having to rescue the other, they both have to be there for each other. Well written and I can’t recommend it enough. One-shot. 

It’s Only Half Past (The Point of Oblivion) - Written for a prompt on AvengerKink: “I think it’s generally agreed that all of Steve’s senses are powered up by the serum? He can hear people whispering on the other side of the room, probably sees a hell of a lot further, etc. But there are definite downsides. How does Steve control this side effect of the serum?“ Hurt/Comfort/Drama. After a villain jacks up Steve’s senses, he becomes hypersensitive to everything. In an incredible amount of pain and almost completely incoherent, Steve must rely on Tony to help him. Very well written, the descriptions of both Steve’s sensory sensitivity and deprivation really set this story apart. One-shot.

Job Description - Steve is injured. Tony helps clean him up. They have a heart-to-heart in an empty lab. No slash, just bromance :D Oh, and lots of h/c! Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. The friendship between Tony and Steve is refreshing. A tropey, but well received plot. One-shot. 

Matters of Detonation - Steve’s in the middle of the street with an oxygen mask that is forcing him drugs and wired to the bomb strapped to his chest. To make matters worse, Tony is in front of him without his suit and he won’t follow orders. One-shot. Possibly a two-shot. No slash! Just brotherly stuff. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Stream of consciousness from Steve’s POV. The tension and characterization are handled very well. One-shot. 

Quiet Companionship -  All people had ever done since he’d woken up was talk and insult and inundate and order and instruct and condescend and babytalk him. There was far too much noise in this world and no one seemed to appreciate the beauty of silence or the value of quiet companionship. No slash. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Tony helps path up Steve after the Battle of Manhattan. Both men realize they judged the other too quickly. The friendship in this story is enjoyable. One-shot. 

Reverb -  Steve is a pretty calm guy, except when people blatantly disobey his orders. People named Tony Stark. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. Tony’s disregard for Cap’s leadership skills and tactical analysis, plus his propensity for recklessness, nearly destroyed a friendship before it started. This is well characterized and an interesting look at the psyche and the fallout of choices made during the heat of battle. One-shot. 

Matt, Peter Friendship

5 Times Matt Talks to Peter - And one time that he talks to Spider-man. Friendship/Fluff. Peter interns for Nelson and Murdock. Matt becomes rather attached, though he was definitely not ready to find out about the teen’s extracurricular activities. I really need more of those boys fighting crime or paperwork together. Complete. 

avocado socks and burnt toast - “Oh, my GOD,” Karen said. 

Peter blinked at her. Karen blinked at him, mouth hanging open. Matt sighed, and said, “Peter. Mask.” Said mask was still in the kitchen, where Foggy had wrestled it off of the young vigilante earlier, armed with disinfectant and cotton buds and a vicious need to nurture dumbass super-humans. Peter sank low on his haunches, until only his huge eyes and fluffy hair could be seen over the top of the couch. “Whoopsie.” Hurt/Comfort/Fluff. A fun little piece  centering on Matt’s associates discovering Peter’s identity. Starring a hurt Matt and lil’ shit Peter. Very well written and characterized. One-shot. 

Bet Your Bottom Dollar - “Rein in the evil, sugar. Pete, why don’t you go get your dad a cup of coffee before he commits homicide in broad daylight.” (Team Red goes on an early morning, undercover mission to catch a pedophile.). Adventure. Matt’s internal dialogue as he tries to get through this mission. In which Peter is a little shit, like always, and Daredevil has to remind his co-parent that murder is bad. Part of the Dumpster Fires Verse. One-shot. 

but how do you know? - “How did you know you were gay, Double D?” Peter asked around Valentine’s Day, when Matt was having an existential crisis over whether to get Foggy an apology/Valentine’s Day present or whether to get two separate presents. (Matt fumbles his way through a gender/sexual identity talk.). Humor/Sexuality. Poor Matt just wants to go shopping and have his latest existential crises in peace, but Peter has questions. So many questions. Well done, and as an LGBT+ individual, very appreciated. Part of the Dumpster Fires Verse. One-shot. 

No Lilo, Too Much Stitch - Peter Parker sitting on a couch. D-Y-I-N-G. (It’s okay, Daredevil is there. And Claire. And Tony Stark, but he mostly just worries.). Fluff/Humor/Hurt/Comfort. Stream-of-conscious fic told from an injured and concussed Peter’s POV. Very well done and the whole thing really felt like little shit Peter Parker. One-shot. 

small potatoes - The road between ten and fifteen had been a slow descent into bad and then worse. (Matt had a hard time in foster-care. It affects the way he relates to Peter.). Angst. Instrospective Matt trying to figure out why he worries about Peter constantly and eventually tying that back to his childhood experiences and how he wants to protect Peter from what he suffered. Both touching, tragic, and very realistic in portrayal of how childhood trauma can affect the concept of self. Also a great way to explore Matt’s background without unnecessary exposition. Part of the Dumpster Fires Verse. One-shot. 

Strange Loyalties - Spider-Man gets a little in over his head when he accidentally ends up at the same crime scene as the Punisher. Drama/Angst. Frank saves Peter’s life and is predictably an ass about it. Matt is called in to take Peter off of his hands. Bro feels all around. Two-shot, complete. 

The Vigilante Case - Peter Parker is having a bad day. He’s tired, he’s got too much homework, and there’s a price on his head. Money is a very good motivator, and half the city has turned on him practically overnight. But amid the easily-angered masses lies a greater danger, and soon Peter’s life hangs by a thread. It’s a good thing he’s so close to Hell’s Kitchen. He’s going to need a Devil to carry his soul. (Or: the one where Peter is injured and Matt takes him home.). Drama/Hurt/Comfort. Matt finds Peter shot and tries to keep him alive long enough for Claire to get to him. For her part, Claire is stuck trying to keep Matt calm and the kid alive throughout the whole reveal. The story is well written and fairly realistic, I appreciated that Peter’s injury was used to reveal his identity to Matt and vice versa instead of just being for hurt/comfort’s sake. Claire deserves a medal. One-shot. 

Wildly Out of Wing - Daredevil’s not a team player. He’s barely cares that there are other people like him, working on the streets to keep their city safe - it’s just not important to him. Course that was before Spider-Man dropped into his part of the city and he figured out the kid was actually a kid. He’s not a team player but damned if he’s letting a kid do this alone - or at all. If he could just get Spider-Man to listen… Fluff/Friendship. After several failed attempts to get Peter to hang up his mask and focus on being a teenager, Matt decides the least he can do is train him to face what’s coming as a vigilante. And be the mentor he wished Stick was. One-shot. 

Mentor Tony, Peter

5 Time Peter Made Tony Laugh Out Loud - … and one time he did not. Post Spider-Man: Homecoming — Tony is just trying his damn hardest to keep this reckless kid from Queens safe, but it’s hard when Peter is, occasionally, ridiculous as all hell. Humor. A refreshing look at Tony and Peter’s relationship that focuses on levity instead of the darker aspects a lot of writers prefer. Over all, a well done series. Complete. 

5 Times Nobody Saw Peter Panic, and the 1 Time Someone Did - There’s a building collapsed on top of him, and water rushing over his face. Peter can’t breathe. There’s an evil dude with wings trying to steal dangerous technology and Peter can’t breathe. He’s Spider-man, he’s not afraid of water. He’s a damn super hero.Angst/Fluff. Peter dealing with the aftermath of being trapped and helpless under the warehouse roof after his fight with Vulture. Given how much it affected him, the odds weren’t great that he would walk away unscathed. Enjoyable characterization and a bit more of an accurate look at PTSD and anxiety. WIP, ongoing.

5 Times Tony Didn’t Need To Worry About Peter - …and the one time he most certainly did. Angst. Tony will certainly be surprised if this new spiderbrat he took under his wing doesn’t end up giving him an ulcer with all of the mischief he gets in to. The story explores the relationship between Tony and Peter from the former’s point of view. I really enjoyed getting a look at the other side of the relationship and watching Peter getting involved in all kinds of crazy things that a superpowered teen would end up doing. Complete.

Aunt May Dies - And Peter think’s he’s dying, too. Hurt/Comfort. A much more realistic look at what would happen if Aunt May died and Tony became Peter’s guardian. There’s a lot of raw emotion and tension in this piece as Tony and Happy try their best to get a teenager through losing the closest person to him. A good plot and well written. WIP.

dreams don’t scare you (the ain’t big enough) - There are roughly eight people Tony needs to call urgently, including representatives from the UN, NYPD, DODC and Pepper. The sensitive tech needs to be inventoried on scene and placed on another flight tonight, with the recently reactivated Colonel Rhodes sitting co-pilot. All of this needs to be coordinated with Happy and the team already mobilized. What he says is this: “Is he alive?“ Drama. Tony’s reaction to Vulture attacking his plane and Spiderman saving the day and his realization that he is now a mentor figure for Peter. I enjoyed seeing how Tony responded to Spiderman continuing to fight crime and go after Vulture even after he took the kid’s suit away. I was also very thankful that the author left Peter with the dignity of his choice and agency in that they simply expanded on the scene from the movie without altering too much of it. One-shot. 

Gyps indicus - Peter’s a tough kid. He’s been around the block a few times, he knows how to take a hit. Getting kidnapped by the Vulture isn't fun, of course, but he can handle it. His enhanced healing gives him an advantage if Toomes wants to take some anger out on him. Except Toomes has other plans.Hurt/Comfort/Suspence. Peter is held at the whims of Toomes and tortured while his friends are threatened. While the story was entertaining and nail biting in places, Toomes’ character felt off in that he isn’t a vindictive torturer and more a carefully planned opportunist who’s in it for the money and adrenaline. One-shot.

One to Ten - Iron Man, an Avenger, had stumbled inside the Emergency Room just a moment ago, his suit gleaming wet in the harsh neon-lights. In his arms, he was holding the teenager New York – and the world – had come to identify as the ‘Queens Orphan’. It looked as if he was sleeping, cradled securely in Iron Man’s grip like a child. But there was too much blood for that to be the case. Hurt/Comfort. Tony takes Peter in after the death of May and the two try to build a life together. Peter, as usual, gets caught up in both school and hero drama. I really enjoyed that the plot is not linear in places and that the reader follows along in an out of order timeline. Complete.

the way i get by - Peter tries to deal with the trauma he’s experiencing after defeating Vulture. He realizes he can’t do it alone. Angst. Peter deals with panic and anxiety as he deals with the aftermath of taking down Vulture and surviving a building coming down on top of him and a plane falling out from under him. Tony realizes this kid means something to him and he is committed to making sure he’s protected and given a world in which he can shine. One-shot. 

Steve, Clint Friendship

Broken Down and Waiting - “Cap, open your eyes! Come on, don’t do this to me!” A mission gone wrong leaves Steve injured and Clint worried. Drama/Hurt/Comfort. The story utilizes POV switches to convey the friendship between Cap and Clint that is often overlooked. The strain of nearly losing a teammates tends to bring out different emotions and responses in people, this is handled well in the story. Also starring, jaded military personnel (basically my homelife). Two-shot, complete. 

Don’t Forget to Duck - A battle and test of a new weapon goes well except for one thing: Cap forgets to duck. Hawkeye’s growing friendship with Cap outside of battles bleeds through the tense moments when they’re not sure Cap is going to come through this one. Drama/Hurt/Comfort.  The friendship between Clint and Cap is refreshing, but the plot and writing are both mediocre. One-shot. 

Heavy - Steve’s heavy, but Clint carries him anyway. Humor/Friendship. Steve is usually the one having to carry out wounded Avengers. Clint gets stuck doing Cap’s job. I love seeing a story focus on the friendship between Clint and Cap and having that literally represented by Clint having to haul around an injured Cap makes for a fun read. One-shot. 

Steve, Bruce Friendship

Pillar in the Sea - Steve is feverish, and Bruce is patient. They will both be okay. Hurt/Comfort/Family. Bruce helps Steve adjust and the two share a heartfelt conversation. Such a rare friendship fic to see in this fandom. These two aren’t put together much and this story is a refreshing take on their relationship as teammates and friends. One-shot. 

Steve, Natasha Friendship

Helping Hands - Natasha comforts Steve during his sedation-free surgery to repair the wounds suffered in the final fight with The Winter Soldier on the helicarrier. Spoilers for Captain America: TWS. Steve/Natasha friendship. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. What says on the tin. One-shot.

Steve, Bucky Friendship

be there to laugh -  “Oh shut up,” Steve tells him sourly, and glares. “You better not’ve been sitting there for three days.“Bucky strangles the desire to roll his eyes. “Course not,” he replies, “barely been here, even went out dancing last night.“ Friendship.  Bucky always takes care of Steve when he gets sick. Cut and short, but still very well done. One-shot.

Don’t Go Where I Can’t Follow - A mission goes badly for Steve. And when something goes badly for Steve, it’s twice as bad for Bucky. Hurt/Comfort/Friendship. Ambiguous relationship. An interesting look at the interdependency of Steve and Bucky. One-shot. 

Fly From Heaven - Bucky’s not who he used to be, even if he is in the same place, whispering the same things and holding onto the same hopes. All he knows is that he believes in Steve. He believes in their friendship. He believes in his memories. And his memories are telling him that Steve is going to be okay. Steve will come back. Drama/Angst/Friendship. Buck is always there when Steve is dying, always believes he can pull through anything, even when everyone else has already given up. Seeing this dynamic both pre-serum and post-serum was nice. One-shot. 

Science Bros (Tony, Bruce Friendship)

Social Father - There are not many things that the Hulk is even remotely “gentle” with. Apparently, Tony Stark is one of them. Friendship/Hurt/Comfort. What it says on the tin. The story is a bit short, but it’s still an enjoyable read. One-shot. 

Brotherly Thor, Loki

Never Enough - Thor, Loki, Sif, and the Warriors Three travel to Svartálfaheimr on what they assume will be an innocent hunting trip. It would have been, if they had avoided being seen. R&R Pre-Thor. Adventure/Hurt/Comfort. A well written and characterized series with an interesting history. What really sets it apart it the well developed world, culture, and background characters. Plus some hurt Loki for good measure. Complete. 

The Sanguine Wood - While on a trip to Alfheim, a young Thor and Loki encounter trouble in a large forest. Pre-Thor. No slash, brotherly love. Loki-whump. Adventure/Hurt/Comfort. Thor must save Loki trope. Very interesting storyline outside of the tropey premise. An interesting world and cast of characters supporting this series. Complete. 

Will - Loki has always been prone to illness. Has always experienced sickness on and off on almost a regular interval. But this time is different. This time, he’s really, truly sick, and no one seems to think he’ll make it. Thor doesn’t know what to do when he’s faced with an enemy he can’t protect his little brother from. Drama/Hurt/Comfort. An interesting backstory to explain why Loki is the way he is. The emphasis on willpower and the brothers’ relationship really sets the story apart. Sappy in places, but I’m not complaining too much with this. One-shot.

Superfamily (Steve/Tony and Peter)

If I Die Young - Tony and Steve are trying to keep their little boy (who’s not so little anymore) out of the superhero business for as long as possible, but when a kid’s as stubborn as Peter is, they can’t always stop him. And sometimes things go wrong. Really, really wrong. Hurt/Comfort. Peter tries to help the Avengers save the day and gets himself injured. Tony and Steve are scared out of their minds as they try to get their son out of the line of fire and home alive. One of my favorite superfamily/superhusbands stories. One-shot. 

It’s all Fun and Games (until someone has to call the dads) - It was dark and cold and in the blue-ish light of his Stark phone the blood on his fingertips looked almost black. It was his own, which made everything so much worse. Or the story where Peter really doesn’t want to call his dads, even though he probably should.Hurt/Comfort. Peter gets himself into some serious trouble but doesn’t want to call his dads because they’ve been fighting and he’ll be damned if he adds anything to their list of things to fight over. For Steve and Tony, this situation is a wake up call to how their relationship affects Peter. Bruce just tries to talk some sense everyone. Three-shot, incomplete.

Stony (Steve/Tony)

The Same Inside - Things are really not going Steve’s way after he gets hit by a blast that reverts him back to his pre-serum state. Now he has to deal with overprotective teammates, a guilty Tony, supervillians, and his feelings for a certain stupidly guilty genius. Can he prove that he’s the same person no matter what? Stony. Drama/Hurt/Comfort. The tried and true trope of Cap losing his powers. This really isn’t the best writing, concept, or characterization. But who am I kidding? I loved every minute of it. Complete. 

When It Clears - To Tony Stark, the worst part of being a hero wasn’t the fighting. No, it was standing there, waiting for the smoke to clear. Now, though, he’s starting to think there just might be something worse. hurt!Steve protective!Tony Tony/Steve slash. Hurt/Comfort/Romance. Ah yes, the standard “one person in a relationship is injured and the other must angst over it” trope. Still, it’s done well and the series is enjoyable. Complete. 

When We Were Just a Story -  Tony and Steve are captured by unknown forces. They have to work together to get out safely and Tony learns a little something along the way, but has a ton of questions left unanswered. Angst/Hurt/Comfort. Some pretty realistic Stony pre-slash. One-shot. 

Stucky (Steve/Bucky Barnes)

All That’s Left Are Your Bones - “Punk,” He says, just loud enough for Steve to hear. That’s all it takes for Steve to cheer up. “Jerk.” Both Steve and Bucky take this as a sign of friendship from the other. It is not. It is a sign of love. They’ve always communicated in this way. Bucky helping Steve beat up a bully, Steve telling Bucky “I had him on the ropes.” When Steve’s too sick to leave the house and he tells Bucky to go out without him. Bucky taking care of Steve while he’s sick. After an argument, “punk” “jerk” is their version of kiss and make up. Late at night, they stay up, searching their brains for how they would say I love you, without realizing that they’re saying it on a daily basis. Romance/Tragedy. A well written story fully capitalizing on Steve’s poor health. Also, bring your tissues. One-shot. 

Just A Loser In Boxer Shorts - When Steve wakes up, it’s to the smell of something burning. Drama/Romance. A wonderful AU that’s well handled and characterized. One-shot. 

Mine Eyes Have Seen The Glory - Steve breathes, and thinks that this would be okay—thinks that, like this, in this; so much ruin and so much death: he thinks that if he gets anything at all, at the end of the line, he’ll be lucky. He sees the echoes; the failures of the past. He sees Bucky, sees missed chances, sees an opportunity to make it right—in his own head, his own heart, before it all goes dark. Steve thinks, of all the dying boons he could know: this is more than generous. Romance/Hurt/Comfort. Bucky returns in Avengers:
Age of Ultron during a time in which Steve needs him. The two have always taken care of each other, the 21st century is no exception. One-shot.

Out of this damned winter - Steve and Bucky always promise each other they’re going to get somewhere warm, someday, out of this damned winter. (Five winters with Steve and Bucky.) Romance/Hurt/Comfort. Over the years Steve and Bucky deal with the winter and each other. So cute and well done. This is a great little story of love and devotion through a lot. One-shot. 

Skinny Love - I could never find a negative inch of you. Might be mad about the pollen that triggers your allergies, the cold for laying you out for days at a time, just never gonna blame you. I won’t ever pick you apart, I’m gonna take all of you. Romance. Short and sweet story about Bucky taking care of Steve and the two falling in love. All they need is each other. Sappy? Yes. Worth it? Oh God, yes! One-shot. 

Sours: https://angelinarecs.tumblr.com/avengers

It seemed to me that it was impossible - to paint living people like this, besides young and beautiful girls, right on. The living, like some thing, - on their delicate skin, on their face, neck, hands. then there was some strange melancholy, and I stood and looked, looked with widening eyes at her, alive and inanimate at the same time. It all seemed to me that she was bewitched.

I was overwhelmed with childish horror, swelled up to my ears, and at night I had nightmares: an evil sorcerer turns a gentle princess into a statue.

Fanfic avengers

The nipples shocked from his biting, I somehow wanted to press myself against his palm between his legs and squat on it, and he pressed his hand harder. And several times held my whole palm so that I could no longer restrain myself exhaling. He straightened up, pressed me to him, ran his other hand into his hair from behind and began kissing. these are no longer kisses, this was kissed by an excited man who had already felt his power and the magnitude of his desire.

and most importantly - he realized that I would satisfy his desires.

Pulls me close, gently kisses me Thank you, honey, I adore you. Embracing, I fall asleep on his shoulder. Master, I am very happy with you.
