Born to be Kings by Kadorienne

myrtlebroadbelt: Under the Hill
When Bungo Baggins married Belladonna Took, he didn’t realize she came with two remarkable sisters. If three is a crowd, four is a mob. And a mob—even one made of hobbits—simply won’t do in one tiny smial. Factor in any future fauntlings, and he really can’t be blamed for coveting something more spacious. Too bad no one informed him that building it himself would be so… so… whatever this is!

What follows is an entirely respectable account of the building of Bag End, inspired by the 1948 classic Mr. Blandings Builds His Dream House.

dirgewithoutmusic: naive: in defense of hannah abbott
When Voldemort had Cedric Diggory killed, he said this: kill the spare.

Hannah heard it whispered in the hallways, too, right behind "sheep" and "not smart/not brave/not cunning" and simply "Puff." Potions with Snape was always a treat. He hated Harry Potter, but the black and yellow earned his disdain. Even Flitwick sometimes sighed when Justin Finch-Fletchley just couldn't quite figure out a charm.

And Hannah, in her quiet, accustomed, burning way, fumed.

We are not spare parts.

You think we're your cast offs. You think we're the kids no other House wanted to take.

Well, here's a clue for you, suckers. This is a story about choice. The wand chooses the wizard but the wizard chooses the House. When that Hat goes on your head, it doesn't forbid you things, it offers them to you.

We are not your castoffs. We're just the kids who didn't choose you.

Devotion, Threefold by anticyclone
"You know," Aatenel said, lowering his voice, "most people who are graced with my physical form tend to say something in response."

There had been a ritual greeting he was supposed to use, Pando abruptly remembered. It was like having water dumped on his head. He had fucked this up entirely.

An unnatural fire threatened Pando's kingdom. The people of Vrae and his Expanse had never before demanded things from each other, so Pando had begged. He agreed to marry a fire god, sight unseen - only the wedding day has come, and the fire god does seem to enjoy what he's seeing now.

thingswithwings: The Favor of the King
T'Challa – King T'Challa of Wakanda, the Black Panther, Guy Who Dresses Up Like a Cat to Fight Crime or Possibly for Other Reasons, Who the Fuck Knows – T'Challa corners Sam during one of their visits to check in on Bucky and says, in a mild voice that should not sound as threatening as it does, "We need to talk."

"We do, huh," Sam says, looking him up and down. He's just a king and a superhero and a genius inventor and possibly the richest man alive, looking way too fine and wearing the hell out of a tailored three-piece suit; Sam can hold his own against this guy.

In the Hearts of Men by proser132
“All actions have one or more of these seven causes: chance, nature, compulsions, habit, reason, passion and desire.”

By chance, the Easter Bunny met Jack Frost in the Blizzard of '68. From there, it is a domino effect, and it's surprising to all involved where the pieces fall.

galwednesday, silentwalrus, skellerbvvt: Scents and Sensibility: The Working Assassin's Guide to Supersoldier Seduction
Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

Evil Overlord, Inc. by Footloose, mushroomtale
Merlin is a recent graduate with a double doctorate in metaphysics and physics. Arthur is a low-level paper pusher with a desk in the sub-basement of MI5. They live in a world with ridiculous laws and restrictions against anyone who might be supernatural in any way, shape, or design.

Merlin has huge debts looming over this head, a few quid left in his bank account, and no job prospects. Arthur is pushing thirty, in a dead-end job with no chances of promotion to fieldwork agent, and is thoroughly bored with his life.

One ill-advised Craigslist advert, five pushy mates, one nosy all-knowing sister, and a hacked email account later, Merlin and Arthur take the world by storm.

(Or, more precisely, they take over the world.)

Uncompromising Principles by Kizmet
After leaving Siberia Captain America begins his plans to overturn the Accords. But not all is as it seems.

Not compliant with the end of "Civil War". Part one of the Chasing Ideals series. 195,000+words.

I found Steve’s position relatable and sympathetic… and wrong. He’s arguing that the Avengers don’t need oversight while right in the middle of getting wrapped up in his personal crusade and dragging almost all of the other Avengers after him through sheer force of personality. At least Tony’s learned to admit that he’s not perfect and is acting like someone raised in a democracy (listening to what the majority of people want rather than decreeing that he knows best).

Moon's Notes: Post-Civil War AU in which Steve killed Tony in Siberia and all the mess he caused in his "Save Bucky!" agenda have actual real-world consequences. Hence, the majority of the fic is an in-depth legal court trial! With Daredevil's Foggy Nelson playing defense lawyer for Steve.

Both sides are well-treated, well-argued, and well-represented. The only point of contention I have with the results is Fury's appearance. Not for any fault of the author's, but because I know they are 100% right that the future MCU Infinty Wars movies will absolve Team Captain America of any wrongdoing just so they can fight. The more Marvel goes with these movies, the less tenable they are to me.
