3 very biased HBB recs, multifandom

So, in addition to participating in the Het Big Bang, I betaed three frickin' awesome epics, so I'd be remiss in not telling other people to read them in their finished forms.


Fandom Category: The Avengers/Doctor Who
Pairing: Martha Jones/Clint Barton
Fic Title: It Takes An Ocean Not To Break
Author: kerrykhat
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/497374
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up

Why This Must Be Read: Well, this summer kicked off with the Avengers for the entire planet, apparently, and I personally started watching/obsessing over Doctor Who shortly thereafter. So, when someone needed a crossover fic edited, it was like it had been written for me. And, it turned out, it almost had been! Martha Jones, new-Who's most under-appreciated companion, and Hawkeye, the Avenger who barely got to be in the movie as such, get to shine here, and the author draws them together slowly and naturally. Martha, though, is the real star--and what I like best is that kerrykhat thought through exactly why she needed to land in SHIELD's orbit, and how fighting Loki related to dealing with the Master in her mind. Great work, and you'll be left wondering how the heck Earth's Mightiest Heroes did it without Dr. Jones on hand. Bonus Jack Harkness cameos, which never get old (like Jack).

Fandom Category: Star Trek (2009)
Pairing: OFC/James Kirk, OFC/Leonard McCoy
Fic Title: The Land Between Solar Systems
Author: red_b_rackham
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/collections/Het_Big_Little_Bang_2012/works/497486
Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up

Why This Must Be Read: Not only did the author manage to create an original character strong enough to narrate a 51K-word fic, she also managed to create a plot that actually keeps you guessing and that fits in perfectly with the Star Trek universe, with specific ties to the reboot movie as such. It's also a lot of fun to read, with little details that flesh out day-to-day life on the Enterprise in way canon doesn't really show.

Fandom Category: Thor/The Avengers
Pairing: Jane Foster/Thor
Fic Title: Pendulum: Beginning
Author: hariboo

Rating/Warning(s): Teen and Up

Why This Must Be Read: What impressed me about this was that the author completely turned both of these characters and the notion of a shippy fic starring them on its head. Thor and Jane are stuck in two different worlds, and while the action-hero warrior is consigned to dealing with his own thoughts and the consequences of his and Loki's choices, Jane has to step up her game and take action. The voices in this were spot-on, and the scenes with Jane *and* Tony *and* Bruce science-bro-ing out are kinda priceless.
