Raise a Little Elf, by kellifer_fic

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Clint "Hawkeye" Barton, background Jane Foster/Thor Odinson
Fic Title: Raise a Little Elf
Author: kellifer_fic

Rating/Warning(s): PG
Genre: AU, Humor, Romance

Why This Must Be Read: There are a number of great Darcy/Clint fics out there, but this one has stolen my heart. The concept itself is hilarious - that Clint is secretly an elf - but the world-building is well-thought out and I love any fic that portrays the Avengers as an odd, dysfunctional, yet extremely loyal family.  It's the perfect mix of sweet and snarky banter between Clint and Darcy that steals the show, though.

Go. Read. You won't regret it.

This becomes a bit of a Super!Harry fic, but it is done in a captivating way. At the end of Harry's 5th year, his life is in shambles. Things aren't going to get much better.

Families break apart, friendships become strained, allies become enemies, old enemies become allies, and the world begins to burn.
