Questionnaire - by storiesfortravellers - fandom The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Some time after the events of the movie, somebody sits the Avengers down together to go through some standard SHEILD paperwork. Of course, because it's SHEILD, the standard paperwork goes way beyond listing an emergency contact. To whom would they give prospective consent in case of a fuck-or-die/sex-pollen situation? Who would want appointed guardian if they're de-aged? If they're permanently transformed into a housepet? And so on.

Took Me By Surprise and Then - by thehoyden - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
After the second surgery in New York, Charles doesn’t anticipate anyone keeping vigil by his bedside. He’s instructed Alex and Sean to stay with Hank in Westchester. Erik and Raven are likely halfway around the world, and even if they had been nearby, he doesn’t expect either of them to come and hold his hand.

The only person he expects less is the one actually there, folded into the hard chair like he’s completely comfortable, all of his attention on a pad of graphing paper propped up against his knee as he sketches something with precise strokes of a pen.

“Tony?” Charles croaks.

Tony Stark’s eyes flick over, and he smiles at Charles, and oh — it’s the same smile, like they’re still ten and going to sneak off from one of their parents’ parties to do something phenomenally stupid that will probably result in property damage. “Hey there,” Tony says softly. “You don’t call, you don’t write—”

"I am hugging you," Thor explained. "That you may know I love you, despite your madness."

[Seriously, fandom, stop it, I do not want this pairing, but oh the the excellent Thor-centric crackfic that y'all are writing...

Case in point. Here we have noncon hugging and dubcon sex. And ALL THE FUNNY. -L]

A Ghost Should Be So Practical - by elise_509 - fandom X-Men (Movies), The Avengers (2012), Captain America (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
Author's Summary:

Logan doesn’t hear what happened to Steve until they find him in the ice 70 years later.

By then, Steve’s just Captain America to him, and Captain America doesn’t mean a thing to Wolverine.

even the cake was in tiers - by kellifer_fic - fandom The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Tony doesn’t want Steve accusing him of having a concussion again, so he sits quietly and watches a bizarre meeting unfold where the Avengers discuss things that did not happen.

Tony is starting to suspect that either;

A. He's the victim of a very elaborate prank which involved Steve nudity which, well done guys, did not see that coming or
B. He really does have a concussion.

Film Studies, or, Four Films About Captain America and One By Him - by copperbadge - fandom The Avengers (2012), Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"So I have to ask," Tony said, swiping at his beard with a napkin, catching hummus off the edge of his mouth, "did they show you the Captain America movie yet?"

They'd been quiet while they ate, weary from battle (and, for some, absorbed in an exciting new foodstuff) but Steve should have known Tony would be the one to start them talking again.

"I made a couple," Steve ventured. "I saw most of them."

"No, the one they made post-Capsicle," Tony said.

"1949 or 2008?" Bruce asked.

Steve had experienced a lot of Stop, tell me that again? moments after waking up, but this might be the strangest.

cluegirl: On Sentiment
...upon second watching, I noticed an even more beautiful pattern to Joss's use of that word in other places. Sentiment. It's not a two dollar word, really, is it? You don't lay even odds on getting to hear it on any given day, because it's not an everyday word, or notion -- unless you own or work in a gift shop that specializes in engraving.

But that word is used in the Avengers four times. And each time it's spoken with scorn about something the speaker is trying to disprove...

The Avengers get shanghaied into chaperoning a high school prom. In Steve's opinion, things go downhill from there, but Tony's determined to save the night. With the Macarena.

liviapenn: big list of Avengers reaction posts
The reviews are mostly squee/positive, and some squee with a little bit of criticism. (Probably the people who were not going to enjoy it so much also haven't seen it yet, or won't see it, I guess? Or else the backlash just hasn't started yet. *G*) I tried to link mostly longer posts, but I also linked some shorter ones with lots of discussion in the comments.

marinarusalka: Thoughts on Black Widow's characterization in Avengers
...it's not at all surprising that Natasha's characterization comes in for a lot of scrutiny. When you have a superhero team movie with only one woman on the team, that one woman is going to have a whole lot of metatextual baggage attached, and people who care about the portrayal of women in superhero movies are going to feel the impulse to dissect every possible aspect of her character to inspect for signs of a sexist portrayal (Here's a hint for the future, Marvel: you can fix that problem, or at least alleviate it a lot, by having multiple women on the team.)

What comes up a lot in the dissection of Natasha's character is that she has several moments of emotional vulnerability during the movie. And the argument I'm seeing made is that even though she's shown skillfully using that aspect of herself to manipulate bad guys by getting them to underestimate her, it's still somehow sexist to portray her this way, because she's the only Avenger who shows this "weakness." And honestly, I think this argument has a lot more to do with people's expectations of what women in superhero movies are supposed to be than with who Natasha actually is.

First of all, Natasha is nowhere near the only Avenger to show emotional vulnerability. ...

Tony Stark has known Charles Xavier since Tony was eight and Xavier was his Uncle Charles. Now that Tony’s all grown up, Charles vets his dates. Well, most of them. Except for the ones where Charles brings someone who should really be in jail, not a fancy restaurant.

The Salmon, Downstream - by Cesare - fandom X-Men: First Class (2011), Thor (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
So Charles has a thing for picking up strays, right?

Strays like one tall, lean, sharp-eyed, dangerously driven young man on a quest for vengeance against the cruel sadistic son of a bitch who tore him away from his natural family and turned him into a living weapon with the aim of having his protege destroy the world...

I'm talking about Loki, of course.

[Charles's characterization in this vignette is fascinating. -L]

gyzym: avengers fic: ready, fire, aim (steve/tony, nc-17) [1/3]
It turns out that, while Steve doesn't like Tony, Captain America gets on great with Iron Man. Tony should probably have seen that one coming; one of the problems with having a second identity, regardless of said identity's utter lack of secrecy, is that it makes it easy for people to draw a dividing line. Nick Fury had done it--"Iron Man yes, Tony Stark not recommended," god, that was never going to stop rubbing him the wrong way--and Steve is clearly, visibly, doing it too. Never mind that all the good Iron Man does is because Tony is, you know, running the show; Iron Man gets smiles and camaraderie and "Nice work, buddy," and Tony gets flat looks and carefully maintained distance.

Which is fine, really. Two can absolutely play at that game.
