Challenge 141: het-reccer's MARVEL(ous) MONTH OF MAY!

In addition to any recs you wish to post at any time, the comm has monthly rec challenges issued by the mods!

Challenge 141:

Category: Marvel Universe
Deadline: June 1
Challenge: In honor of today's much-anticipated U.S. release of The Avengers: Age of Ultron, we're declaring this month MARVEL MAY! Post all your recs for the comics, TV shows, and movies that comprise any and every Marvel continuity.

Whether you're a diehard Steggy stan, hoping that Matt and Claire might actually make it work, or only just discovering how convoluted comic-book romances can be...this is the month to show us your favorites!

As a bonus, everyone who steps up to meet this month's challenge will get a personally selected and appropriately themed reaction gif, courtesy of your over-invested mod, stars-inthe-sky.

Also, stay tuned later this month for our community discussion, where you can get out all your feels regarding Age of Ultron, the end of season 2 of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., the “Secret Wars” comics event, and more!

Just copy/paste the text below and post it as a new entry:

You don't need to ask for posting rights—just become a community member and rec your favorites!

Harry Potter, 3 Recs, Various Pairings

To begin my month of special recs, I decided to go back to my first fandom: Harry Potter. Here are a few of my favourite rare pairings in that world.

Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Ron Weasley
Title: Selling Spring
Author: hereticalvision
Link: first part here @ ronpansyfest
Rating/Warning(s): R
Word Count/WIP?: ~20,000 /no
Special Rec: 1 of 30

Why This Must Be Read:
An exceedingly original and unusual post-series story. Pansy and Ron meet in a very unexpected place. This story healed my heart, broke it, and healed it again. it is the best of world building, amazing character journeys, heartfelt romance, and painful reality. And while the ending isn't how you'd expect, it is true and positive and right. An amazing story.

Bonus Rec:
Fandom: Harry Potter
Pairing: Pansy Parkinson/Ron Weasley
Title: Thunderclap from a clear sky

Why This Must Be Read: an epilogue to Selling Spring that opens new possibilities. Also, in the comments, a link to the author's notes on both stories and why they are so open-ended.
