Pairing: Sif/Loki (background Jane/Thor)
Fic Title: The Salt Skin
Rating/Warning(s): R; violence, some language and sex.
Why This Must Be Read: I had the pleasure of beta-ing for this fic, and it was so much fun because it was so wonderfully written. The dynamic between Sif and Loki is fantastic. Their relationship is so deliciously complicated, yet easy and familiar, and the author absolutely nails it. The characters' dialogue is just spot-on, especially Darcy, and the story builds to such an excellent ending. Another Big Bang fic that I just devoured!!
