Title: Teethe and Suffer Well by laufeyette
Fandom: Being Human (UK)
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Hal Yorke/Tom McNair

Author's Summary: Tom helps Hal resist his instincts // The evening before the night after
Word Count: ~3300 // ~3700

Why I Loved It:
It's really hard to find fic for this fandom, and it's even harder to find fic which is a) in character, b) SUPER-HOT, and c) actually believable within canon. This ticks all the boxes for me, and I really have to admire an author who can keep Tom a sweetie but also a werewolf with hangups, and Hal painfully awkward and ritual-obsessed but also a deadly Old One. Oh, and if it makes a difference to anyone, they're both set in S4, so Annie is the resident ghost :) Adorable.

Title: A Statue Strong Enough For Two by lady_ragnell
Fandom: Merlin
Rated: Explicit
Pairing: Elena/Mithian

Author's summary: Elena is a street-level superhero--she's never been one of the ones who wanted glory. Now, though, a visit from an old enemy forces her to step up and see what she might have to do with the Sidhe who invaded and were sent away twenty years ago. Luckily, she has fellow superheroes, especially the Huntress, to back her up, and a new girlfriend in her regular life to make things feel more normal. (Though nothing, of course, can ever be normal when you've got a secret identity.)
Word count: 39k

Why I loved it: SUPERHEROES! PLOT! FEMSLASH! SECRET IDENTITIES! AWESOME POWERS! WHY ARE YOU STILL READING THIS POST AND NOT THE STORY?

Still here? Okay. I saw the author post about this fic on tumblr and downloaded it from AO3 SO FAST OMG because of the aforementioned capslocky reasons. And then reality, augh, boo, so I only got around to starting it last night, and I absolutely loved every minute of it. I will be rereading it very soon.

The love story and associated conflict are very, very well done, but what really makes this story for me is SUPERHEROES. I don't want to spoil you guys for the PURE GLEE you will probably feel (if you are a bit of a nerd) on hearing various superhero names and abilities. Just wonderful.

I said in my comment on AO3 that if I was an arty type, I would be making comic fanart of this fic RIGHT NOW, because it is just so recognisably that kind of world. It would fit so gorgeously in a graphic novel, I can perfectly picture so much of it.

Don't walk, run.

Title: Armed and dangerous
Rating: NC17
Pairing: Clint/Bruce
Summary: After watching Clint in an archery competition, Bruce apparently gets a pretty one-track mind.
Notes: College AU, established relationship, talk of (but no actual) bondage, and a really brief reference to breathplay (blink and you'll miss it). OKAY LOOK BASICALLY RENNER'S ARMS ARE VERY ATTRACTIVE. Arm porn. (Look, in my defence, I managed not to call it welcome to the gun show, so I think I deserve a little bit of credit.) Yup.

Title: Mistakes of Our Youth by candle-beck
Fandom: Sherlock Holmes (Ritchie movies)
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Holmes/Watson

Author's Summary: It's the backstory; it's how they got here.
Word Count: 31000

Why I Loved It:
This fic is stupendously, beautifully written. The dialogue is wonderful and the messy emotions are so perfectly realised, and the story fits perfectly into and around canon.

Caveat: YOU WILL CRY LIKE A BABY. Well, you might not, but I did. It's one of those fics where you reach the end, keep frantically page-down-ing for a while, then you reach for the blankets/strong alcohol and you cry and cry while realising that this heartbreak was the most beautiful thing. (I have actually only read this twice, which is unusual for the fics I'm reccing for 100 things, but it is agony in the way that great writing can be.)

Additional fair warning (which is totally an incentive and goes to show how awesome the writing is): this fic has become an irreversible part of my movie-head-canon and I sometimes cry at stupid moments during the first film now. Hey ho.

Come on, flist. I know you love fics that rip your heart out with emotion and heartbreak and I-want-to-shake-you-roughly-by-the-throat character moments that just work so perfectly.

(Comfort blanket: Go read The Greek Problem by the same author aftwards.)

Word Count: 23000

Why I Loved It:
Okay, so genderswap doesn't always do it for me, but this shot instantly to the top of the list of those that do. Honestly, just so so good in all kinds of ways (duh. There's a reason some authors are a must read whatever fandom they meander into haha). I was initially really taken by the title because omg yes, what a perfect spin on things.

And then the little tweaks to canon that come from the gender swap are awesomely done too. I particularly enjoyed the take on Tony's relationships with Pepper and Clint (Carl from legal! Yes to all of this!!) The changes never feel awkward or shoe-horned in, but at the same time, Tony is still very much Tony. Just a chick. A badass, awesome, kind of asshole chick. And she knows it. And so does Steve. But he is dumbface in love anyway.

Go read. Genderswap done so, so, sososo right.

Title: keep your heart around (you might need it some day) by llassah
Fandom: Avengers
Rated: G
Pairings: Tony/Pepper, but it's mostly gen

Author's Summary:
Tony Stark finds himself as a de-aged Loki Odinsson's temporarily designated parental figure, through no fault of his own. Responsible superhero co-parenting doesn't just involve feeding, housing and clothing a tiny Asgardian, it involves rubber ducks, transdimensional vortexes at bathtime, fruit parties, pictures of robots that draw other robots and hoverboards (eventually), as the team keep Loki safe while they look for a solution.
Word Count: 34000

Why I Loved It:
Aw man, this is freaking adorable. I like de-aged fics when they're done well, which this definitely is. There are some really adorable moments (bathtime! Aunty Nick!), some lovely, touching dialogue, and a scene with Odin that didn't make me want to throw him off a cliff? That is an achievement!

Mainly, I love that this fic absolutely doesn't labour the point of Tony's issues. Howard is never mentioned, and Tony's own childhood is barely referred to, but it all fits so well and this line? This line is my absolute favourite: "He damn well stuck to his cardinal rule: don't send a child away because you're busy."

Seriously guys. Rubber duckies, blanket forts, cuddles, trying to explain the whole Jotun deal to bb Loki. Shoo, go read, it is exceptionally feelgood weekend reading :)

Title: Clueless, or: How I Learned To Stop Being a Selfish Prick and Love a Capsicle by withthepilot
Fandom: Avengers
Rated: Explicit
Pairings: Tony/Steve, Clint/Phil, Jane/Thor, Bruce/Pepper, with bits of other pairings in there too.

Author's Summary: Okay, so you're probably thinking, This guy seems like a total douche.

You're half right. But seriously, I'm a completely normal teenager. A normal genius-billionaire-philanthropist-playboy teenager. Who goes to a school for government agents and superheroes in training. Every morning, I get up, trim my goatee, take a shot of Jack Daniels (which Ke$ha totally stole from me, by the way), and pick out my school clothes.

A Clueless AU, starring Tony Stark.

Word Count: 37k

Why I Loved It: COME BACK HERE RIGHT THIS INSTANT. Yes I said Clueless AU. I love Clueless, okay? A lot. So as soon as I saw this I clicked with mixed hopes because it just seemed so out there, you know? But then out there AUs are golden when they work. And this so, so completely worked for me.

Obviously, Tony is Cher and Steve Josh, but I'm not going to say who everyone else is because I want people to giggle-snort the same way I did when various bits became clear. There's a smattering of dialogue lifted from the film (I was most disappointed that my life motto – I'm totally buggin'! I feel like such a bonehead! – was not there, but still, minor detail) which also works well.

Mainly, I love this fic because it cracked me the fuck up during a fit of insomnia the other night, which is just what I needed. The dialogue sparkles in both a Tony-esque and a Clueless-esque way. Also! I don't listen to podfics so often, but for those of you so inclined, there's a link to a recording in the author's notes.

Rated: Explicit

Author's Summary: "I wish I could fly," he whispers.
Word Count: 11.7k

Why I Loved It:
!!!!! OKAY. First of all, I am assiduously avoiding any and all Clint backstory fic until I've finished my own. I made an exception for this one, because foxxcub's Avengers fics are AMAZING. And also, in all honesty, I was expecting to only like this for the writing. Because wing-fic. Which, even though I've pretty much ALWAYS been in fandoms where wing-fic makes total sense, it has never, ever done it for me. I'm just like eh, wings.

ANYWAY, ignore that, clearly I was some kinda stupid because this fic is AMAZING. The parts about Clint's life before he came into SHIELD are largely comic canon (so watch out for potential triggers in the forms of physical and emotional abuse) and they encapsulate so, so well all the reasons I am fascinated with this dude. Particularly fantastic are the scenes with Natasha and the way Clint's puppy love turns into the BroTP of my fucking heart okay. (Headcanon all over the place oh god.)

The way that both Clint and Natasha grow into their places within SHIELD is brilliantly done, and Coulson's presence is, again, just total headcanon for me, in that he's this source of calm that Clint doesn't quite understand and probably would never have imagined he needed but augh *hands*

LOVE THIS FIC/PAIRING/WRITER/POINT IN PRE-MOVIE-CANON.

Summary: Arthur and his friends have been making their money this way for years. It's all they know and they're good enough to get away with it. Merlin grudgingly works in a bank, wishing his days away. Their worlds collide and everything changes.
Notes: I started this fic so long ago, after my MP3 player hit me with Scooby Snacks by the Fun Lovin' Criminals, and I thought 'bank robbers of the round table!!' (Title is from that song.) There was no one I could bug into writing it for me, so this was born. Endless thanks to [livejournal.com profile] eldee and [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce for reading through this for me. Equal thanks to my dear flist who have put up with me talking about this fic for longer than I ever imagined it would take me to write it.
