mizzy: I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you
A comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, the Avengers are considered vigilantes, and Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation during the Chitauri invasion – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

Steve goes undercover for SHIELD with the comics team who create The Retaliators, a thinly veiled fictionalization of the Avengers -- which turns out to be created by the actual Avengers. A touch implausible at times, but delightfully funny and full of secret identity feels.

Detective Inspector Sitwell of Scotland Yard calls on the famous detective Phillip Coulson for help on the case. Except nothing is quite what it seems and Phil must decide whether he can trust the help of the infamous scoundrel Clint Barton as they sift through intrigue, scandal and secrets to solve the MURDER AT THE SAVOY HOTEL.

John 'Johnny' Marcone is a mechanic with a bad limp and a bad history with Vargassi. He doesn't want to get back into the business of the Business; he barely escaped with his life before. But in Harry Dresden he sees enough raw power to save the city he loves. Will he risk it all to back his crazy friend against the powers that be?

Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have....

Dean is a police detective in a world where magic is used regularly, except for necromancy -- which is why it's a terrible idea for Dean to summon Castiel, incarnation of Justice, to help him solve a little girl's murder that's literally haunting him. The worldbuilding in this is AWEsome, and Cas is wonderfully alien and cranky and weird (and eventually, totally in love with Dean), just as he should be.

closer: Pizza And A Movie
Harvey's still a lawyer but Mike's not a pot runner -- he's a deliveryman for Rollo's Pizza and Ribs, which happens to be Harvey's favorite pizza place. Once Harvey finds out his pizza guy is a genius, Mike's life takes a few turns he would not have expected...

LOVE this series, written as a trilogy that retells and extends the story from Mike, Donna, and Harvey's POVs.

elspethdixon & seanchai: Classicverse
Modernized retelling of early Silver Age Avengers canon. I was worried that I wouldn't enjoy re-reading this after the movie and A:EMH, which have some similarities, but it's still a fun, team-centric read, heavy on the Tony feels.

seanchai & elspethdixon: When The Lights Go On Again (1/21)
Aliens have invaded earth, and the Avengers are scattered. While Steve leads the resistance, Tony once again finds himself playing captive scientist. In the midst of a violent alien regime, separated by seemingly insurmountable boundaries, Steve and Tony have nothing to keep themselves going but each other.

Amazing, gripping comics-verse aliens-invade epic with a complex alien race and a great side helping of Clint and ensemble.

qwi-xux: Guide Me Home (1/32)
Long, sweet Ursa/Hakoda story that parallels the events of the show. A bit roughly written in places, but the romance and all the OCs are lovely.

dreamwaffles: Calling Down the Lightning
The gift of magic carries a death sentence on Earth, and one so accused can be executed on suspicion, for the simple reason that the destructive power of an angry wizard can lay waste to entire countries. When magic awakens in a person just as they leave their teens, whether it is the untamable power of a wizard or the lesser abilities of a mere magician, life becomes a constant struggle to hide it at all costs.

Dr. Rodney McKay, PhD PhD, is a wizard.

icarus: Out Of Bounds
Ice skater AU. John's a rebellious figure skater who after twelve years of competition has one last shot. Rodney's the former World Champion, shattered by defeat (can't you just hear the Olympic theme song?) who can make it happen. Fun AU, and I love the skate choreography.

whizzy: Black Helicopters at Dawn
Rodney is a conspiracy nut with a giant satellite dish, which is exactly as hilarious as it sounds. But one day he picks a transmission from a downed pilot named Sheppard.... Plotty and delightful, as are the sequels.
