snickfic: [Hawkeye] Kate looking over the top of her sunglasses (Kate)
I have thirty-seven "to rec" links on Pinboard. I mean to slowly work my way through them in themed bunches. This is the comics bunch.

Black Widow comics, Natasha/Yelena, 4.5k. This is hands down my favorite "pretending to be together" fic I have ever read. Because in this, they're pretending to be together for a spy mission, and instead of celibate pining we have angry UST and then angry very-much-RST. As in canon, Yelena is all tied up in Natasha, and as in canon, Natasha alternately laughs at and indulges that obsession. This is great stuff.

Kate Bishop gen, 1k. I don't know what the canonical story is behind why Kate takes up archery (or if there even is one), but I really like this version: she practices as a form of taking control, fighting back against sleeze balls, taking ownership of the space she occupies. Does not depend on any particular YA or Hawkeye canon.

Saga, The Will + The Stalk gen, 1k. Mission completed, The Will and The Stalk take a breather, and The Will contemplates his occupation. Neat, low-key little character piece.

Saga, Hazel + Izabel gen, 2.5k. THIS IS SO GOOD. This is the school report of one Hazel, having interviewed her friend Izabel for the purpose. Documents fic! Worldbuilding more cohesive and coherent than I think Vaughan and Staples have created (or aspire to create, for that matter). Just really neat at taking details of the Saga universe and weaving them into a proposed whole (although this was written after #8, so some of it, particularly stuff about the robots, has since been jossed). Very nifty.

Match Point by [personal profile] salmon_pink
Pepper/Sif, one-shot. First they spar, then they have sex very attractively. And there's humor, too!

The Ties That Bind by [archiveofourown.org profile] Odsbodskins
Steve/Bucky + Natasha, a/b/o, 26k. One of my favorite a/b/o fics to appear in quite some time, with tons of interesting worldbuilding (including text excerpts! One from Mary Roach, even!) dealing with lots of aspects of a/b/o life that don't seem to turn up very often. Also has omega!Steve, which immediately endeared the fic to me. Also has Steve and Natasha off missioning together, which made me ridiculously happy. I love Natasha in this. I love everything in this.

Fair warning, this was written pre-Winter Soldier, so it's definitely an AU in the jossed sense. Has a lot of events inspired by comics stuff, but mixed and matched, so no comics knowledge necessary.

Re-Habituation by [archiveofourown.org profile] downjune
Bucky/Natasha, a/b/o, 3k. This isn't shippy in the strict sense; it's about Natasha exploring a part of herself that was previously only controlled and exploited, and doing that exploration with someone she trusts. I especially like the identity stuff this fic explores, and I tend to be a sucker for sex-between-friends scenarios like this one. Just neat.

Experiment in red by [archiveofourown.org profile] sevenofspade
Bucky+Wanda gen, 4k. The Winter Soldier makes friends with one of HYDRA's experiments. I LOVE unexpected moments of grace and friends found in unexpected places, and this has that in spades. It also deals a lot with the terrible things, including brainwashing, that happen to both Wanda and Bucky, so be forewarned. (I have the uncomfortable feeling that this fic is far kinder and more complex in its characterization of Wanda than canon is going to be. >:( )

measure of affection by [archiveofourown.org profile] bullroars
GotG team gen, 1.5k. drax the destroyer does not need a hug. Neat happy-feeling gen where the team takes care of its own, however fumblingly. Very sweet.

All This Red Tape by [archiveofourown.org profile] TigerDragon
girl!Peter/Gamora, 3.5k In which the girls are still working out how they work together, in both the feelings department and the pants department. There's some low-key xeno here for those that like it, and just a lot of very appealing fumbling stops and starts as Gamora and Piper Quill try to figure each other out.
