Avengers: Means and Mendacity by so_shhy
Summary:
When a young thief named Clint Barton saves the lives of Lord and Lady Stark he finds himself caught up in a bewildering series of events, involving an unexpected fortune, an arranged marriage, a blackmail plot, and the full spectrum of spies, lies and secrets.
Reccer's Notes:
This author has done an amazing job of fusing the characters from the Avengers movies into a Regency setting, with the little tweak that same-sex marriage is not considered in any way unusual. Coulson's disability is an integral part of the plot here; he's been invalided out of the Army and considers himself to be "damaged goods"... until Tony and Pepper come up with a match for him that benefits everyone in different ways. It's a delightful romp worthy of Heyer.

The Avengers: Means and Mendacity by so_shhy
Summary:
When a young thief named Clint Barton saves the lives of Lord and Lady Stark he finds himself caught up in a bewildering series of events, involving an unexpected fortune, an arranged marriage, a blackmail plot, and the full spectrum of spies, lies and secrets.

An unashamedly ridiculous Regency romance.
Reccer's Notes:
The author does a fabulous job of figuring out where each character's background and personality would make them fit into a Regency framework. The only major change from a standard Regency format is that in this AU, same-sex marriage is considered normal and unexceptionable, and this is used as the hook on which to hang the plot. There's some angst and peril, but it's mostly fluff (as a good Regency should be). If you like the Avengers and Regency romances, you're going to love this.

Reccer's Notes: Just as Bucky realizes he's gay and in love with Steve, Steve starts dating Sam. Oh so angsty.

The Avengers/MCU: Means and Mendactiy by so_shhy
Summary: When a young thief named Clint Barton saves the lives of Lord and Lady Stark he finds himself caught up in a bewildering series of events involving an unexpected fortune, an arranged marriage, a blackmail plot, and the full spectrum of spies, lies and secrets.
Reccer's Notes: The author describes this as 'an unashamedly ridiculous Regency romance'. It is, and it is so much fun to read. The way so_shyy uses regency tropes and Avengers fan tropes as well as the character histories all comes together brilliantly and you'll be carried right along with it to the end.

Avengers: Don't Mention Demi Moore by so_shhy
Summary:

‘You’ll drown their roots, watering them that much,’ Phil says.

Given the circumstances, it’s not terribly surprising that Clint drops the coffee mug he’s been using to water the houseplants and jumps a foot backwards in sheer astonishment.
Reccer's Notes:

There are a lot of fix-its for the Avengers movie, and most of them are divided up into two camps: one where Fury is a bastard for lying on purpose, and one where he isn't. This is one where he isn't, because he really did think Phil was/is dead. Phil was only mostly dead, and then he got better.

This is well-written and has humour and style, and Fury has many of the best lines. Well, and Tony. And Thor. And… it's fluffy adorable fun making Phil not dead anymore.
