Why This Must Be Read: I’m biased because this story was literally written *for* me, but whatever, it’s an excellent little story that toys in interesting ways with universe alterations and alter-ego musical chairs, and the shippy content is a great balance of incidental and essential.

Why This Must Be Read: Short though this ficlet is, it packs a heck of a punch. It’s emotional and sexual and utterly, hauntingly feasible.

Why This Must Be Read: Quiet and blunt by turns, this story shows Natasha as she should be written when there’s a love interest in the picture—deeply feeling but always careful, and taking care of herself first while wondering what else is out there.

Why This Must Be Read: Bleak and disjointed, just like its subject’s mind, this fic pulls no punches in its exploration of Bucky’s years of brainwashing and torture, nor the glimmer of hope for his recovery. His connection to Natasha is woven throughout his history, and it’s just as fraught and important for him as it should be.

Why This Must Be Read: This is a neat fic in that Natasha and Bucky’s burgeoning relationship is quite present and meaningful for both…but the story is really about Steve and his struggle to balance his new, modern life with the reappearance of his old, unremembering friend. (It was written in early 2012, so before the release of any Avengers films or CA:TWS, but it holds up nicely.)
