Certain Dark Things By sinemoras09 (Explicit)

Fandom Category: The Avengers (2012)
Pairing: Natasha/Loki
Fic Title: Certain Dark Things
Author: sinemoras09
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/429651
Rating/Warning(s): Major Character Death, Explicit
Genre: Unrequited Love, Angst, Anonymous Sex, Loneliness, Hurt/Comfort
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I love this pairing, but understand how difficult it can be to get characters who hate each other together in fic and keep it in-character and believable. The author does both beautifully here. And even though the POV is Loki's the reader can see Natasha's character and motivations as well. With so few fics for this pairing I was thrilled to find one so well written.

Rating/Warning(s): Light suggestiveness
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Leslie frets, only a little unreasonably, about her future with Ben. Ann Perkins, friend and beautiful nurse, is there to tone down the crazy. And then there's a lot of wondering about proposals. My description isn't doing the sweetness and loveable fluff of this fic justice, I'm sorry, just read it.

Fandom Category: Community
Pairing: Mostly gen, but with some Annie Edison/Jeff Winger and Annie Edison/Troy Barnes if you look for it
Fic Title: Creative (Non)Fiction
Author: freneticfloetry
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/142676
Rating/Warning(s): None
Genre: Humor, meta
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Abed attempts to write fanfiction about the study group for his creative writing class. His friends are understandably excited and disturbed by turns. It's more gen than het, but it's just too good not to share around.
