Two multifandom (self) recs, The Avengers and the Office/Dollhouse  
And when I say "multifandom," I do mean "multi," given that both of these are in the crossover family!

Fandom: The Avengers/Captain America (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Bucky Barnes
Title: Making Your Way

Why This Must Be Read: I think this may be my favorite thing I've ever written, from the detailed AU setting at a not-quite-Cheers bar in downtown Boston to the understanding and understated slow-build romance between Bucky and Natasha, where he's an Iraq vet and she's a grad student. There's also a plethora of sneaky canon references, several of which continue to make me laugh out loud, and a hefty dose of Bucky-Steve friendship. Plus, Clint is from Southie and Tony is...exactly the same. What's not to love?


Fandom: The Office/Dollhouse
Pairing: Pam Beesley/Jim Halpert, Sierra/Victor
Title: Momentum Building

Why This Must Be Read: Written for the 2012 Het Big Bang, this story is a little unusual, but I adore how it came out. It’s a non-crack crossover wherein Pam gets recruited by the Dollhouse after Season 2 (obviously, the documentary crew was a front for the Rossum Corporation) and encounters Jim years later in the post-thoughtpocalypse world. It's a thrill to see Pam self-actualize all on her own into someone strong and still fundamentally herself...as well as becoming a badass Whedonesque heroine, of course. Jim's presence brings out a lot of interesting things in this Fancy New Beesley, and her exploration of that identity is so satisfying.
