MCU, 19 recs, Peggy/Steve, Natasha/Steve, & Wanda/Steve  
This is it! This is my last post for the month! As a retrospective, here's a summary of a conversation I had with blithers back in March:

Me: soooo...what's the most a special reccer has recced in a month? Asking for a friend >.>
blithers: Hmmm, let me check!
blithers: Oh wow, I think it's 100!
Me: ....JESUS. well ok, I'm not going to be able to beat that, I don't think

Fast forward to now: AH HAHAHAHA, I worried for nothing! XD Let this be an object lesson to myself--Self, never underestimate your utter inability to moderate yourself and your ambition to win even when there's nothing to win. Thanks to everyone for sticking around while I flooded the comm with recs. And ALL THE GRATITUDE to the mods for staying on top of tagging duty. I ADDED A LOT OF TAGS, I'M SORRY. It's been a blast y'all. HAPPY READING!

Why This Must Be Read: An AU where Peggy got captured and experimented on during the war. After Steve goes down in the ice, she finds out she's pregnant but gives the baby, a girl named Sharon, up for adoption to protect her from those who would want to study and experiment on Steve Rogers' child. As a result of the experimentation done on her, Peggy doesn't age, and eventually fakes her death when she can no longer hide her youth with makeup. In the modern day, Steve and Peggy eventually reunite, but after all these years, all the things she's had to do, and all she's suffered, Peggy isn't the same person she used to be. Steve and Peggy have to figure out if they can be together again in the present and at the same time, figure out their relationship with their daughter. This story is AMAZING. Indie has been such a gift to the Peggy/Steve community and she's written so many amazing AUs, but this one is hands down my favorite. She writes Peggy and Steve with so much humanity, flaws and all.

Why This Must Be Read: An AU in which everyone survives the war, including Bucky, who was assisted by a female scientist being forced to work for the Red Skull against her will. This covers the end of CA:TFA up through season 1 of Agent Carter, and reimagines these stories with Steve and Bucky. I love these authors and their writing is always A+++. I love the way they've managed to make the plot of Agent Carter work with Steve and Bucky surviving the war, and crafting a believable conflict for Peggy and Steve. This series is everything I ever wanted for them. (Also the female OC is FABULOUS and so is her romance with Bucky. Don't let that scare you off).

Why This Must Be Read: An AU where Peggy doesn't have Alzheimer's and was the one who gave Steve the idea to write down a list of things he needed to look up. Ugh, I adore this. No matter how old Peggy is, Steve Rogers will always be completely and utterly in love with her.

Why This Must Be Read: Steve is still on the hunt for the Winter Soldier, but just when he thinks he's getting close, someone else--someone clearly enhanced--gets in his way. Imagine his shock when it turns out it's Peggy Carter, looking exactly as he last saw her. THIS IS ALL I WANT OUT OF LIFE. I just want them to have a chance to be happy and in love in the present ;_______;

Why This Must Be Read: I don't normally go for ABO fic but uh...this worked for me. A LOT. Peggy is an Omega and she's going into heat; it's too late for suppressants and if she has to walk through the base giving off heat pheromones people will know she's an Omega and no one takes Omegas seriously. Steve offers his services as an Alpha. I love the way the trope is subverted in this fic. That even though Steve is an Alpha and should be dominant, he submits to Peggy 10000%. Yes good.

Why This Must Be Read: A modern, no powers AU where Natasha is determined to find (skinny!!) Steve a girlfriend, no matter what he has to say about it. This time though, he's surprised by how much he likes the gorgeous brunette Natasha has set him up with. Peggy is fascinating and witty and genuinely seems attracted to him...and then he finds out that the waiter has seated him at the wrong table with the wrong gorgeous brunette. Oops? This was adooorable.

Why This Must Be Read: A modern no powers AU wherein everyone is British and volunteers at Oxfam--which is sort of a weirdly specific AU but interesting to read about! Steve is still skinny in this AU and he's also bisexual, which becomes a conflict when Bucky breezes back into town and doesn't exactly get along with Peggy. There's a very honest discussion about homophobia and biphobia that happens in this story, which I thought was well-handled, and I liked that the Peggy, Steve, and Bucky relationship was complicated and awkward, but they find a way to handle it because they're adults.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a BEAUTIFUL Cap3 coda. While Steve is hiding out in Wakanda, he gets a phone call from Natasha. It's not overtly shippy, but it's filled with all the gentle affection and deep trust that characterizes their relationship and basically, I just want to die a lot because it's everything I love about them.

Why This Must Be Read: Steve wants to know why Natasha is so hellbent on setting him up and she admits that if he's taken, then that means he's off-limits and therefore safe from her. As a Natasha/Steve shipper, this is 100% what I want to believe about her motivations for matchmaking.

Why This Must Be Read: Wanda can't help but pick up on people's thoughts sometimes, and for a while now, she's been picking up on Steve's fantasies about her. In person, he is never anything but polite and respectful, but Wanda decides she's done waiting for him to do something about it. This was so. effing. hot. Nnnnnnnngh, I'll be in my bunk!
