Why This Must Be Read: Bernie Rosenthal was one of Steve's long term girlfriends in the comics and she is AWESOME. In this story, Steve's Avenger-ing has cockblocked her for TOO LONG and she decides to take things into her own hands. I love this story so much. It's funny and warm and tender and hot as HELL.


Fandom: MCU
Pairing: Sif/Steve Rogers
Title: Interdimensional Incidents

Why This Must Be Read: I think we can all agree that Steve's type is badass brunettes, so when he sees Sif in battle, it was only natural for him to become besotted with her glory, though he is too shy to approach her himself. Cue his friends playing matchmaker and hilarious shenanigans involving the Avengers and the Warriors Three. This is so much fun.


Pairing: Pepper Potts/Phil Coulson
Title: Working Relationship

Why This Must Be Read: Wherein Pepper and Phil have a friends with benefit arrangement whenever they're in the same city. The characterization and voices are on point and the smut is just delicious.


Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Nick Fury

Why This Must Be Read: sarcastic_fina has such a gift for making unusual pairings work. I adore the dynamic between Darcy and Fury, the way she has no fear of him at all, flirts outrageously with him, and the way he can't help but be amused by her.


Pairing: Maria Hill/James "Rhodey" Rhodes

Why This Must Be Read: Maria Hill really needs to sleep, but she's having a little trouble decompressing. She happens to meet Rhodey at a bar and he's got a solution to her problem. This was super sexy and the Tony cameo is delightful.


Pairing: Melinda May/Nick Fury

Why This Must Be Read: This is an urban fantasy/magical AU, written in an unconventional format, and while it's not overly shippy, it's such a fun story with lots of action and snappy banter. I enjoyed this story hugely. There's also a podfic of this story by digiella!


Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Hogun
Title: Home Is Where Your Family Is

Why This Must Be Read: A one-night stand between Darcy and Hogun before he returns to Asgard in Thor 1 results in a bouncing baby boy. 2 years later, Hogun comes back to Earth and finds out. I love a good kidfic and I enjoyed the slow burn as Hogun elects to stay on Earth and co-parent with Darcy.


Pairing: Sharon Carter/Sam Wilson

Why This Must Be Read: As the summary says, this story is about 3 times Sharon saved Sam's life, and 2 times he saved hers (arguably). Written pre-Cap 3, it turns out that Sam met Sharon years ago, back when he was still a PJ. Sharon is a stone-cold BADASS in this story and I really enjoyed their dynamic and the way Sam completely respects Sharon's ability.


Pairing: Helen Cho/Bucky Barnes
Title: Untitled ficlet for the prompt: Bucky/Helen + "What are you doing?"

Why This Must Be Read: This is the ficlet that launched this ship for me and now it's consumed me and WHY ISN'T THERE MORE FIC FOR THIS PAIRING??? I love the gentle, quiet, contemplative mood of this story. I love the way Bucky thinks about her, the things he loves about her, and this story just...it just works.


Mods, I need pairing tags for...almost everything. orz I need Bernie Rosenthal/Steve Rogers, Sif/Steve Rogers, Maria Hill/James "Rhodey" Rhodes, Melinda May/Nick Fury, Natasha Romanoff/James "Rhodey" Rhodes, Darcy Lewis/Hogun, Sharon Carter/Sam Wilson, and Helen Cho/Bucky Barnes.
