Why This Must Be Read: Who doesn't love a good dæmon fic, where the animal manifestations of characters' inner selves run around and heighten the action and emotions at hand? This one is so artfully done—the author really considers what each person's dæmon would be, and what Peggy's wolf and the others' dæmons mean, both about them as individuals and to how people percieve them. The story proceeds more or less in line with MCU canon, but this fusion element adds so much color to Peggy and her relationships with Steve, Jarvis, the guys at the SSR, Angie, and more. (And for Peggy/Sousa shippers, this fic is the first in a longer series that veers in that direction!)

Why This Must Be Read: An AU of "The Savage Time" episode of Justice League, where when Diana goes back in time to WWII, she meets Steve Rogers instead of Steve Trevor. Some time after she returns to the present, Steve Rogers is discovered in the ice and they become a superhero Power Couple. I loved this crossover and how much this couple makes sense when you think about what they value and what they have in common.


Fandom: Captain America/Agents of SHIELD
Pairing: Jemma Simmons/Bucky Barnes

Why This Must Be Read: A post-CA2 AU where Jemma Simmons has figured out a way to restore Bucky's memories. This might be a crack pairing, but the author really makes it work. Jemma doesn't let Bucky get away with anything, doesn't treat him like he's fragile, but is still compassionate and easy with him. Watching Bucky come back to himself and the flirty banter between the two of them is a lot of fun.


Fandom: Captain America/Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?
Pairing: Carmen Sandiego/Steve Rogers

Why This Must Be Read: THE CROSSOVER PAIRING I NEVER KNEW I NEEDED. Carmen Sandiego has a Thing about stealing national treasures--and Captain America is the greatest American treasure of them all. These universes blend together surprisingly well! Carmen is wonderfully written--dangerous, sensual, cunning, and almost always 2 steps ahead in the game. Steve is determined to bring her to justice but...a part of him can't help being drawn to her.

Mods, can I have a Jemma Simmons/Bucky Barnes tag? Idk if you want to make tags for the other crossover pairings.

Why This Must Be Read: This series is so. goddamn. HOT. The sexy times are seriously sexy, but the author also has a fantastic grasp on the characters and what makes them tick.
