Why This Must Be Read: I want to cry with how much I wish this were what the final script for “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” looked like. The author keeps most of what worked in the movie—the one-liners, certain characterizations, the needed tie-ins to other parts of the franchise—and completely ditches what didn’t (oh god so much). The result is a reimagining of the film that makes sense of Ultron’s animosity, maintains the twins’ comic-book heritage (yes, even sans Magneto), and gives one Black Widow an in-character romantic subplot.

Space Admiral Rodcocker and the Litchfeldian Adventure by Ghostwritten (M)

Fandom: Orange Is the New Black (and The Time Hump Chronicles!)
Pairing: Edwina/Admiral Rodcocker (and Suzanne Warren/Wade Donaldson, sort of)

Why This Must Be Read: As soon as Suzanne's Time Hump Chronicles were read, shared, and loved by other inmates, I hoped people would write fic for it. There's only a few that I've found, but this was my favorite as it's clever, meta, and crackish, featuring a parallel universe twist with Suzanne and Officer Donaldson (the inspiration for Admiral Rodcocker).
