Fandom Category: Thor/The Avengers
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Bruce Banner, Darcy/Hulk
Fic Title: The "everyday i'm getting closer to you" series
Link: Part 1: Because Seriously, Fuck Mondays
Part 2: Tuesdays are for Disney Drinking Games and Green Cookie Monsters
Part 3: Wednesdays Require Coffee and Booze in Copious Quantities
Part 4: Thursdays are Balmy (But That's Just the Weather)
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated, but I'd say PG-13 for language
Genre: FLUFF. ALL THE FLUFF
Why This Must Be Read: This is actually mostly Darcy/Hulk--Bruce has yet to make an appearance but oh man is there a hilarious misunderstanding of that situation on Darcy's part. In any case, Hulk saves Darcy from the Chitauri and pretty much falls in love with her at first sight. From then on, whenever he's in Hulk form, he makes an effort to go see her and it is adorable. Seriously, people, this will give you so many Hulk feels you won't even know what to do with yourself. And Darcy is just...a;sdfasdf, so perfect, with her fabulous wit and her unconditional acceptance of the Hulk. So, so good. Highly recommended
Pairing: Darcy/Bruce, some background slash (Clint/Coulson)
Fic Title: Five Avengers Darcy Never Slept With (and the one she might someday)
Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for frank discussion of sex and dirty talk.
Genre: 5 things meme
Why This Must Be Read: The characterization is fantastic and the author deftly and plausibly demonstrates why Darcy wouldn't pursue anything with each Avenger. Until it gets to Bruce and then we're shown all the ways they would work. It's lovely and unexpected, just a wonderful read.
Fic Title: What You Want
Rating/Warning(s): G. Some references to past domestic abuse
Genre: baby!fic, SCHMOOP, FLUFF, ANGSTYSCHMOOPFLUFF
Why This Must Be Read: Recc'ing this because of FEELINGS, OMG FEEEEEEELINGS. This fic was written based off that little moment in the movie where Bruce pushes an empty baby cradle while saying, "I don't always get what I want" (when he first meets Natasha), which several people in the fandom have interpreted as meaning he wants children but he doesn't think he'll ever have the opportunity given The Other Guy. Is your heart breaking yet? I know mine is. Sssssh, it's okay, this fic fixes all of that. It'll put your heart through the wringer first, but the emotional pay-off is so, so worth it.
Pairing: Darcy/Bruce, Darcy/Hulk
Fic Title: schrödinger’s cat
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated, but PG-13? To be safe
Why This Must Be Read: Hilarious as hell. It's Bruce's birthday and Darcy needs to get him a gift. Features Hulk, kittens, jokes about Schrodinger's cat, and Hulk threatening to smash quantum physics. What? Do you really need any more incentive to read than that?
Fic Title: Contingency Plans
Rating/Warning(s): M/R. Warnings for sexytimes
Why This Must Be Read: Bruce is hesitant to have sex because of The Other Guy, but Darcy is bound and determined to seduce her boyfriend. If Bruce can control the Hulk by being angry all the time, clearly the answer to this dilemma is to have Angry Sex. Darcy sees nothing wrong with this Plan--Bruce is less sanguine. This is a fun, sexy read with some laugh-out-loud moments as Darcy attempts to make Bruce "angry" during the course of her seduction.
Pairing: Darcy/Bruce, Darcy/Hulk
Fic Title: More Than a Little Patience
Rating/Warning(s): Not rated, I'd say PG for now.
Why This Must Be Read: This is the sequel to the multi-chapter fic I rec'd back in my other post ("Foreign Teas..."). Darcy has laid all her cards on the table, now it's up to Bruce to figure out what he wants.
Fic Title: If you Give a Hulk a Lab Assistant (i don't think that's how the story goes)
Rating/Warning(s): PG. Warnings for comic book violence
Genre: Post movie, gen
Why This Must Be Read: Another "Darcy becomes Bruce's lab assistant" story. This is a charming read and Darcy is in top form, mastering Tony's overly-complicated coffee machine, wrangling Thor, learning Thai so she can figure out how to read and file Bruce's lab scribblings, bullying Bruce into eating, and generally being competent and awesome. This isn't quite as shippy as my other recs, but one can definitely read it as a pre-relationship fic.
Also, have a bonus Natasha/Bruce rec because I just found it and IT IS SO GOOD I had to rec it.
Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Natasha Romanova/Bruce Banner
Fic Title: A Fine Spur
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13. Warnings for violence
Genre: Post movie, character study
Why This Must Be Read: This is a fantastic, long, plotty read. Bruce goes off the grid again and Natasha is sent to bring him back in. There's some incredible characterization and meta in here. Bruce and Natasha are really just 2 sides of the same coin and it is fascinating to read. Bruce isn't sure whether he's being manipulated and honestly, neither is the reader. I don't have words to describe how glorious this is. Just read it and lavish praise on the author because this is tremendous.
