Why This Must Be Read: I have a lot of mixed feelings about Clint's surprise family in "Age of Ultron," but this author writes Laura and her backstory and personality like no one else (including people on Marvel's payroll). This story is a loving but deeply honest look at the couple's relationship, as well as how Natasha fits into their family and her individual relationships with each Barton, and it's layered and satisfying no matter where your shipping preferences lie.

Why This Must Be Read: I confessed to the author on reading this that sometimes, I simply cannot face another word of X-Files angst. This, in the wake of Home Again, could have ripped my heart out, but instead chose to offer "the Houdini of emotional escape acts." Heartwarming, lovely smut, built around the incredibly intimate knowledge these two characters have of each other.
