The Avengers, 7 recs, Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers

This post is partly to note two fics that I have definitely been meaning to highlight lately, and also to make sure that all the Steve/Peggy shippers get their fix, as this community's got a bit of a dearth of such stories.

Fandom Category: The Avengers
Pairing: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Fic Title: if this is home

Why This Must Be Read: This is easily one of the best chance-at-a-happy-ending stories for this pairing I've read. The characterizations are lovely and honest, and the plot is terrific—it'll keep you guessing in a great way, making the ending all the more satisfying.

Why This Must Be Read: Though this story is unquestionably pro-Steve/Peggy, it admittedly focuses much more on the tentative friendship that develops between the two people closest to Steve Rogers, with a lot of consideration toward what they might have in common. The short second part is an equally worthy follow-up that takes the premise to its next logical step: post-"Winter Soldier."

Why This Must Be Read: What happens when Steve is found under the ice just six years later, rather than nearly seventy? This gripping tale explores how some things change while others stay the same—as well as what this alternate history means for certain key players in the Captain America legend.

Why This Must Be Read: Peggy fronts an all-girl rock band (with Natasha, Sif, and Darcy, because why not?) and Steve's got a tattoo parlor. Yes, it's a quirky modern AU. Yes, it's mad fun. Yes, you should read it. (And yes, there's very minor Natasha/Bucky buried in the background, which is a way to endear anything to me.)

Why This Must Be Read: An exploration—Peggy and all—of what might have happened had Steve shipped out as a sergeant (albeit a scrawny, asthmatic one) while Bucky became a bond-selling dancing monkey. And then, well...let's just say that this one will get under your skin a bit.

Why This Must Be Read: You know what makes a great team-dynamic fic even better? Little, lovely fix-its that get all of your OTPs in line along with the team. Just, enjoy.

Why This Must Be Read:Sad but necessary, this short piece explores Peggy (and Howard) immediately postwar as she grapples with what's been lost (and won) and what might come next. It's hard to say, but I suspect this fic will prove to be a mostly compliant bridge to the upcoming Agent Carter series.
