Fandom Manifesto - The Avengers

 photo Assemble1_zpsa058954a.jpg

Fandom: The Avengers (& accompanying movies)
Pairing(s): Betty Ross/Bruce Banner, Darcy Lewis/Bruce Banner, Darcy Lewis/Clint Barton, Darcy Lewis/Bucky Barnes, Darcy Lewis/Phil Coulson, Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers, Jane Foster/Thor Odinson, Natasha Romanoff/Bruce Banner, Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers, & Pepper Potts/Tony Stark
Spoilers: If you’ve seen all the movies, you’ll be fine. If you haven’t seen the movies, and don’t want potential spoilers, avoid the following:

Haven’t seen Captain America? Avoid Peggy Carter, Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes
Haven’t seen Iron Man 1 or 2? Avoid Pepper Potts, Tony Stark
Haven’t seen Iron Man 2? Also avoid Natasha Romanoff
Haven’t seen Thor? Avoid Darcy Lewis, Jane Foster, Thor
Haven’t seen Avengers? Avoid everything

Oh, yes, and Bucky will be an important part in the upcoming Captain America movie – Winter Soldier. There are all kinds of strings on that one – if you don’t already have an idea of the story, you should probably avoid the internet and comic stores altogether.

If you’ve seen everything, OR don’t mind being spoiled, take a gander at the stories listed below.

Blurb: So, why do I like the Avengers? It is a fun, kick-@$$ group of superheroes out to save the day. The movies give us (and hint to us) so much depth, so many issues, and so much potential. This universe is wide open to play in. To quote Tony Stark (who leaves himself out of this line up) – “let's do a head count here: your brother the demi-god; a super soldier, a living legend who kind of lives up to the legend; a man with breath-taking anger management issues; a couple of master assassins” – how does this not sound like a fun bunch?!? From angst to fluff, from humor to drama, from clean to smut – you’ve got every genre; you’ve got alternate universes; you’ve got “fill-in-the-blank” and this fandom has you covered.

(Because the Avengers have been around in comic verse for so long, there are a bunch of different canons for the majority of these characters. I’m going with my favorite parts/head canon.)

Mods: I need a ship tag for Darcy Lewis/James "Bucky" Barnes. Thank you.

"Leave" by makesometime (PG-13)

Hi again! I was the special reccer last February and I'm thrilled to be back for another round.

Fandom Category: Pushing Daisies
Pairing: Olive Snook/Ned
Fic Title: Leave
Author: makesometime
Rating/Warning(s): not rated, but I'd put it at PG-13
Genre: Angst
WIP?: no
Special Rec: 1 of 30

Why This Must Be Read: I'm a sucker for unrequited romance, so I rooted for Olive and Ned up through the end of Pushing Daisies. Sadly, there isn't much fanfiction I've found for this pairing, which makes me love this little ficlet, written for one of the porn battles, all the more. It's not really porn, never edging up above more than a PG-13ish rating, but it's still a surprisingly hot and angsty take on the two of them and the relationship they can't (and don't) have.
