Pairing: Thor/Jane, slight Loki/Jane
Fic Title: The Hammer and the Ice
Genre: slight AU, drama
Why This Must Be Read: This is my absolute favorite Thor/Jane fic. Typically I dislike stories that recreate canon events - in this Jane takes Selvig's place in the film - but grav_ity pulls it off masterfully. The story doesn't get bogged down in the canon but instead uses it to its advantage, taking more freedoms to focus just on these three characters. The language and imagery will stick with you.
Fandom Category: Thor
Fic Title: Uru
Genre: humor, angst, UST
Why This Must Be Read: There's no actual Thor/Jane interaction in this. It does, however, do a fantastic job of showing how each of them deals with the separation, giving us a good look at their individual characters and just why they're meant for one another. Plus it's got plenty of Darcy snarking and a mythical cat, who can pass that up? (If you've never read any books or fics featuring a mystical cat, you're missing out. This fic is the perfect opportunity to rectify that.)
