Why This Must Be Read: Peggy and Gabe (the Howling Commando played by Derek Luke onscreen) are a couple in the comics, and copperbadge makes that relationship come alive as it might in the Cinematic Universe. This was written well before “Agent Carter” aired, but it’s still largely compliant with that…and it could still happen! I rather want it to, myself, because I don’t see how this pairing—or, indeed, Peggy building a life with anyone who isn't Steve—could be done better.

Why This Must Be Read: This story is more about Peggy and her life with S.H.I.E.L.D. than it is about the men she’s loved along the way—but they’re part of her story, too, and the author shows how with honesty, respect, and warmth.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a really neat little character study of Jane, who’s definitely under-written onscreen and often in fic, too. The story follows Jane, navigating growing up and boys and science above all, and I think reading this was one of the first times that I finally understood why she’s so invested in Thor (besides the fact that he’s played by an impossibly muscular Chris Hemsworth, of course).

Why This Must Be Read: This is another terrific character study of Jane that eventually touches on how her life intersects with Thor’s. So it’s a similar premise to the one above but heads in different, if equally wonderful, directions. It’s also part of a longer and mostly gen series profiling various women in the MCU, pretty much all of which are fantastic and insightful, so I’d recommend sticking around.
