Why This Must Be Read: Brilliant writing. I loved the reaction to all that had happened (this is set after the second series), namely choosing to grab hold of the good things, which is perfect for the new year's eve setting.

Why This Must Be Read: Besides the fact that "a cursed Tony Stark Funko Pop" is listed as a character? This is a sweet and grounded and genuinely funny story about two people who really like each other trying to figure out sex, in spite of a lot of hijinks and the occasional superpowered interlude...and the aforementioned Funko. (It's part of a longer series that's also terrific, but this installment is just in a league of its own.)

Why This Must Be Read: An unmitigated delight, this fic follows up the movie with some sweet shippy goodness, hanging out with Daisy’s awesome kid, and a deep self-awareness for, uh, how famous everyone Ally dated has become since the movie came out in 2011.

Why This Must Be Read: I just reread this fic to be doubly sure, but it looks like it is in fact fic and not a series of deleted scenes. Pity, ‘cause it’s just what it says on the tin and the very definition of the “haha, aww, you guys” vibe that this show excels at.
