Fandom Category: Thor/The Avengers/Captain America
Pairing: Darcy Lewis/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: V is for Victory
Genre: Time Travel!fic, AU
Why This Must Be Read: Because time travel fic, yessss. Due to a rather convenient
Fic Title: All Heaven With Its Power
Rating/Warning(s): T/PG-13. Warnings for mentions of past mind control and dubcon, nothing graphic.
Genre: Supernatural, crossover, romance
Why This Must Be Read: This is one of the coolest, most original Darcy/Steve fics currently out there. Darcy is a Witch and SHIELD sends her out on assignment to negotiate with various supernatural figures, asking them to agree to consult with SHIELD in the event of a supernatural conflict. Steve is her back up. It features some fun cameos from characters from Hellboy, Good Omens, Sandman, Fables, Buffy, and various European folklore/mythology, as well as a very sweet romance.
Fic Title: When I step out, I'm gonna do you in
Rating/Warning(s): E/NC-17. Warnings for sexy times.
Genre: Romance, PWP, fluff
Why This Must Be Read: This delicious story was inspired by this incredibly sexy gif on tumblr. Steve and Darcy hook up at Tony and Pepper's wedding. Sexy times with Captain America still mostly in his formal wear? What's not to like?!
Fic Title: Hey There, Stranger (Wanna Fall in Love?)
Why This Must Be Read: Darcy comes to New York with dreams of becoming an artist. On her way home from a job interview (hey, a girl's got to eat), Darcy feels like she's being followed. Exhausted from trying to lose her apparent stalker, she ducks into a nearby cafe and begs sanctuary from the only person whose table has an empty seat--one Steve Rogers. Steve being Steve can't help but feel protective once he hears of her predicament and it's the beginning of a beautiful romance. You can never go wrong with this author--every Darcy story she writes is gold.
Fic Title: Five Things Darcy Loves About Working For SHIELD
Genre: Five Things meme, Romance, Humor
Why This Must Be Read: Darcy's future is looking up. She's in training to become a SHIELD agent, she's in NEW YORK (her dream city), and she shares an apartment building in Brooklyn with some kooky neighbors and Captain America--although she doesn't know that he is Captain America. Darcy's adventures in SHIELD training are GOLD and I love how scrappy and effortlessly awesome she is. She and Steve are fun, adorable, and banter-y together and it makes me so happy.
Fic Title: courage teaches me to be shy
Genre: Romance, fluff
Why This Must Be Read: This was written for the "forced to share a bed" trope of the 15 tropes meme on tumblr. Darcy and Jane are going to a SCIENCE! conference and Steve joins them as their protection detail as a favor to Thor. Jane, with the help of Jarvis, books Darcy and Steve into the same hotel room as part of her matchmaking schemes. I adore this fic. It's awkward, funny, sweet, and delightfully sensual towards the end.
Day 2: A fic for your very first ship.
Fandom Category: The Babysitter's Club
Pairing: Stacey McGill/Sam Thomas
Fic Title: Hanging By A Moment
Why This Must Be Read: Stacey/Sam was among one of my very first ships waaaay back when. I remember reading the BSC Special Baby-sitters at Shadow Lake and cooing and sighing over all the Stacey/Sam in it. This story details what we shippers would have liked to imagine happened immediately following their dance together. Very sweet.
Can we have a tag for Stacey McGill/Sam Thomas please? Thanks~!
