Harry Potter and the Incredibly Organized Personal Assistant by megyal
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. "Harry Potter's new assistant is snarkily organized." // 2.6K. Harry is having issues. His friends decide to hire him an assistant. A compact, not very complicated summary of what most appreciate with this pairing. Fluff.
"Apart from us," here, she motioned to herself and Ron, "he's one of the few persons who will never fawn over you. You know you hate the fawning."
[...]Harry grumbled. "And yes, I do hate the fawning."
"And he can tell you when you're being stupid," Hermione pointed out.
"I think that will be my very favourite part," Malfoy said wistfully. "You're stupid, Potter."
"Right," Harry said dryly and then sighed. "Fine, he's hired."

The Course of Honour by Avoliot
(Novel) "When Jainan arrived on Iskat to represent his home planet in a diplomatic marriage to Imperial Prince Taam, he was naïve enough to hope the match would work. Taam knew better. Five years later, his confidence shattered, Jainan is released when Taam dies in an accident, only to be faced with another marriage to help salvage his treaty. Jainan understands how the real world works now; but Prince Kiem - the cheerful, scandal-prone darling of the Iskat celebrity magazines - keeps breaking all the rules he's learned." // 118K (29 chapters). Not a fanfic. Long original SF/romance with royalty, arranged marriage, past abusive relationship, slo burn, pining galore, a melange of tropiness, and very readable. A lot of plot points rest on people not telling each other things they need to know so the frustration level gets teeth-gnashingly high at points.

* "And Now a Short Speech," https://archiveofourown.org/works/13080075 "A Transcript of His Highness Prince Kiem’s Speech to Graduating Class Seven Students, Braska Prime School, 36:12:7" // 1.6K. So eventually he does make it to the elementary school. Featuring a lot of "Who would win, Batman or the Terminator?" type questions from the audience...

Muckraker! by orphan
Venom, Eddie/Venom. "After the probe crash, Eddie's getting his life back together. Sort of. So what if his new beat writing PR puff pieces for Silicon Valley startups isn't exactly glamorous? And so what if every time he closes his eyes, he dreams of the distant stars, and the bottom of a smooth black hole, one that used to be filled with teeth?" Eddie uncovers grisly deaths that could be homicides targeting the homeless, which could be related to a local start-up. He decides to investigate ... which leads to another discovery. // 33K. Novel length, investigation plot, and it's pretty engrossing. (There is a sex scene, but it's not the entire point of the fic. Finally.)

The Kakashi Mission by JBMcDragon
Naruto, Iruka/Kakashi. Because Iruka is a patient, well-liked teacher Tsunade assigns him the mission of befriending the village's most insane ninja, who she refuses to clear to rejoin ANBU until he's been minimally socialized. After further acquaintance with the subject, Iruka isn't certain he, or anyone else, is up to the task. // 70-80K? Olde skool, alternating POVs; Rin Lives!, so a mild AU. This version of Kakashi doesn't necessarily contradict canon and maxes out the strange scale: bad case of OCD, unaddressed childhood traumas, severe paranoia, no concept of friendship, and a trollish sense of humor. Interesting tho. Note that the flashback of Kakashi's father's suicide is one of the most disturbing scenes I've ever read. The links inside the fic to the final chapters go to the cut versions; you have to return to the main index for links to the porny versions. (NB, if the site disappears, the fic's also on the Wayback Machine - checked it.)
Most people, upon meeting Iruka, thought him to be a very pleasant and polite man. And he was. However, much like Gai was the most melodramatic man in Konoha, and Sasuke had been the most brooding teenager in Konoha, Iruka had the worst temper in Konoha. But unless one had taught Iruka, or Iruka had taught them, there was no way of knowing this.
Kakashi had done neither of those things.
Iruka was working hard to control said temper. "Kakashi," he said quietly, in a voice all his students knew meant they were a hair's breadth from dying and now would be a good time to either offer mangos or start making a hasty retreat, "did you hit me over the head, knock me out, and bring me here?"
Kakashi, who didn't know that tone of voice, and didn't keep mangos in his apartment anyway, only smiled behind his mask. "Actually, I hit a nerve cluster. It's for dinner."
"Why would you kidnap someone after they've already said they don't want to have dinner with you?" Iruka roared, twisting out of the rope and flying to his feet. "You stupid, arrogant, conceited, stupid--"
"You already said that," Kakashi said, backpedaling.
"Doubly stupid!" Iruka yelled. "Take me home! Now!" He supposed he actually could get home on his own, but it was the principle of the thing.
"But..." Kakashi looked truly confused. At least as confused as someone could be while wearing a mask, and with only one eye showing. "Dinner." He pointed at the little table.
The little table that had sharp chopsticks on it.

* "Skin," http://tentative.net/JBMcDragon/library/dojo/skin.html Iruka and Genma get drunk, for logical reasons. // <1K, Iruka POV, set somewhere in the middle.
* "All about Sex," http://tentative.net/JBMcDragon/Hidden_Village/allaboutsex.html <1K, Iruka POV. Left to his own devices at Kakashi's place, Iruka investigates Icha Icha Paradise.
* "Safely Home," http://tentative.net/JBMcDragon/Hidden_Village/safelyhome.html Kakashi POV. Kakashi returns from a mission and works on his issues on Iruka's bod. // ~1K, PWP.

* "Former Lives, https://jbmcdragon.livejournal.com/286024.html After Iruka tries to kill Naruto -- for no reason he can even articulate -- once he's cleared for hostile jutsu, he gets worked over by the interrogations division and assigned an ANBU guard: Kakashi. Then things get weird. // ~20K, full-length followup fic (directly after "Safely Home"), wherein it is revealed that Kakashi isn't the only one with deep-seated mental health issues: "normal teacher Iruka" has his own peculiarities. This is a fairly intense whump fic, complete with torture, injuries, and hospitalizations. One thing that interests me in these fics is the overwhelming business-like practicality of everyone -- Iruka's penalty is based on how much it might upset Naruto, who's considered to be extremely valuable for the village.

The Night War by praximeter (Zimario)
Captain America, gen. A series of meta fics featuring Bucky Barnes. The first one is a diary/field journal by Barnes posthumously published as a memoir. The others are post-war newspaper articles about members of his family. There are also a set of character podfics.
* "The Night War: 60th Anniversary Edition," https://archiveofourown.org/works/11314224 "In 1947, Master Sergeant James B. Barnes's surviving field journals were posthumously published as the classic war memoir The Night War. Now a high school history classroom mainstay and required reading at West Point, this highly anticipated 60th Anniversary Edition presents the original, unedited text alongside detailed historical notes that provide important context to the extraordinary wartime heroics of Captain America and the Howling Commandos."
//109+K. Takes a while to read, but pretty engrossing. Tons of OCs, provides a backstory for Bucky plus has all the Howling Commandos content that I'd wanted the movie to have; expands on their operations against Hydra and role in Allied propaganda. Labeled as a pairing fic, but it's solidly gen. (In retrospect, I guess that "F.L." entry is supposed to be hinting that Bucky's gate swings both ways. But who knows?) Anyway, good read. My usual problem with these types of fics is that they're faux-RL publications that typically skip RL editing. This one's not awful in that respect.

Family Placement by notlucy
Captain America, Steve/Bucky, historical AU. After his mother dies, sixteen-year-old Steve Rogers joins an orphan train from NYC to points West, willing to work hard on a Catholic family's farm to save up to make his own land claim. But it's not until the end of the line in Kansas when a surly (and atheist) farmer with a bum arm from the war picks up his contract, desperate enough for a farmhand to take whoever's left. // 88K, filled with 1880s farming and pining on prairie. Doesn't go overboard on the Steve maladies for a pleasant change. The shipping moves sloooow, but gets quite porny thereafter, with a fair topping of religious angst. Background Sam/Natasha. HEA.

cascades. by orange_crushed
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Steve, who'd been thought to be blown up in the Arctic, was discovered to be alive in the 1950s when he began to make ghostly manifestations on beaches along the East Coast. After Steve's coaxed back into our dimension, Peggy and Howard are working on how to make his stay permanent when a foiled assassination attempt on Peggy reveals a conspiracy and offers a new piece toward solving Steve's puzzle. // 152K (!). Odd premise of Steve being, basically, Dr. Manhattan (sans time travel) and drifting about like a lost soul until the problem of Bucky restores purpose to his life. Also features return of some Howlies, and comics version of Bucky's memory cure. Was legit worried how some of the problems in this fic were going to be solved, but author manages! Pretty engrossing, imho.

Captain America, Steve/Bucky (genish). "When Barnes stumbles into a small town in Maine at summer's end, he's been running a long time and doesn't expect to stay. But as weeks pass, he starts wondering whether all this time he hasn't been running away from, but towards something - the kindness of strangers, quiet fields, and a curious, yellow-eyed goshawk." // 25K. Could be summed up as hobo Bucky hangs out, learns falconry. The fictional trope of everyone in tiny towns knowing everyone else and being kind to strangers is pure fantasy but a nice one. If only. HEA, no CA:CW, some solo Sam, no smut. Alby_mangroves art.

A shot to the head in Afghanistan sets him loose to rid himself of captors and look up an acquaintance who's been ignoring him. // 65K. Marvel Deadpool fusion AU.

As it's T'Challa POV, a lot what everyone else is doing remains a mystery. No Shuri, presumably as she's not been introduced in MCU yet.

Such Great Heights by softlyforgotten
Harry Potter, Harry/Draco. Harry, who is an aimless and kinda slutty postwar mess, has been living among the Gryffindor Commune (in an increasingly hostile Grimmauld Place) while occasionally helping chase down Death Eaters. One day he follows a lead in rural Wales and falls over Draco Malfoy, who's been working a low-paying Muggle job to support his hiding parents and the ailing Gringotts dragon. // 93K. Yet another Magical Pet-Pal fic. Long, messy, complicated. Harry POV throughout, frustrating as he's oblivious to there being something decidedly askew about his view of events and his own motivations. So not an enjoyable read exactly, but fairly engrossing. Draco remains a rather rude asshole as well (which I prefer).

Bucky more or less invites himself along on the two-week roadtrip that Sam (POV) is taking to a funeral in Oregon. Mainly it's a Sam introspection fic, where he deals with stress and his own stuff while evading everyone's worrying about him. Some minor background Steve/Bucky content, but it's not the point.

WIP-ish: a set of v. short fics that could just as easily have been one fic, but surprisingly readable, fairly porny until the last few when the one-night stands turn into legal reprsentation. Evidently ongoing.

Deep in This Anatomy, Buried by Alcibiades
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. "Bucky's relationship with Steve was fairly simple. His relationship with technology - in particular, one specific piece of technology - was a little bit more difficult to explain." Steve and Bucky (POV) are living together and having lots and lots of sex in a Tower apartment. Once in a while JARVIS saves the recordings from the bedroom for Bucky. // 72K! No real plot, but it's readable all the same, as a domestic, curtainficcy relationshippy sort of deal. Bucky makes friends, sorts out his issues. Nothing much really happens, there's some angst, some resolution to angst, lots of h/c, tons of smut, why not?

This, You Protect by owlet
Captain America, gen. Bucky, whose thought processes have split into Barnes (soldier) and "mission" (Bucky), follows Steve around in a covert fashion, and ends up squatting in the building across the street from Steve's apartment, beating up mobsters for the other residents. // I guess it's not a bad idea per se, but it's disturbing in the way many of these CA fics are. Current fanfic writers appear to be oblivious to how jarring their syntax patterns and vocabulary are for anyone who doesn't spend much time on Tumblr or similar sites. Adult males in fanfic now sound as though they're teetering on the verge of fashion, crafting, shipping, and social justice. (They just ridiculously so can't fucking even, etc.) No one in the 1940s spoke that way. Hell, no one five years ago spoke that way. eta: wow, that was a long bitch session. must have been in a bad mood.

Cleave by trinityofone
Captain America/Dark Materials, AU. Natasha had warned them, but Steve (and Alva) and Sam (and Shani) are astonished when they finally catch up with the Winter Soldier and discover that he really doesn't have a daemon -- and that now he has only one goal: relocate Bucky Barnes's daemon, which hasn't been seen since WWII. // 14K, fusion fic. Pretty readable (though it's been making me nuts that fandom seems to believe there's an "e" in "smooths"), doable with fanfic-AU-only knowledge of HDM. Struck me as an interesting variation on the theme, unlike the previous MCU/HDMs I've breezed through. Also unlike other WS fics, doesn't dwell on amnesia issues. (Prev. SGA and SPN au.)

Rate of Recidivism by alcibiades
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Bucky shows up at Steve's door, and they live in Brooklyn while Bucky learns how to be a person again. Later there are Avengers and press difficulties and a dire Hydra plot to be foiled. // ~93K! in 19 chapters. Second-person Bucky POV. In most respects, more of the same (typical 'recovery' type fic), but with lots of porn, a few noncon flashbacks, HEA. It's long, involved, sometimes mildly gory, and has better SPAG than usual, but a few O_o; fumbles (e.g., au evidently doesn't know what "indiscriminate" means). The Dire Plot is rather iffy; it's never made clear whether they're messily bumping off random victims of said plot or active agents. Also not sure whence all the northern Africa stuff when the base turns out to be right outside the city. (In other words, a fic this long needs to reward your patience with a more critical beta.) Otherwise, pretty readable.

The one where the Asgardian sex-tribble gets loose in the tower. // 15K. Read this one before, but IIRC it was only one chapter at the time; now there's porn as well. It's okay and nonchallenging, background het pairs, not enough ADL to qualify as a curtainfic. Accurate title is accurate.

What If We Love Like Fools? by IndigoNight
Captain America, Sam/Sam, Sam/Bucky, Sam/Bucky/Steve. So Steve takes it upon himself to nobly hare off to NYC to be an Avenger, leaving Sam (POV) behind in DC to "live his life." Then one night he finds the Winter Soldier camping on his front stoop--and it's not long before he's moved in, complete with cat. // 30K. Ton of typos and SPAG errors. But, that aside, it's an UST-fest, with Sam wavering in the middle of two different, slowly building relationships, neither aware of the other. Cuts off at the end w/o any real resolution. Also has that 'hanging out in a skyscraper watching movies, playing games, and eating junk food' arrangement featured in nearly all the fics; I'll never grok the appeal of living like overaged teenagers in an upscale version of the parents' basement.

Greetings to the New Brunette by victoria_p (musesfool)
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. Steve finds a baby during an op taking down an AIM lab. Bucky, who's been uncommunicative and surly up to that point, steps up and wants to keep it. This is not the sort of hobby for him Sam had been recommending. // As kidfics and curtain fics go, it's not too bad, with a nice side order of marriage of convenience leading where these things usually go. So in that respect, readable fluff.

But. But. The OFC mom here is out of sight, out of mind. Steve basically walks off with her baby, and the mother gets no name, no family, no backstory -- not even an obit in the paper. Why was she in that lab? An employee? A volunteer vet? A random victim off the street? No one in this fic cares enough to wonder or even give her a funeral. I get that depressing stuff weighs down a fluffy first-time domesticity fic, but if that's the case, starting off with a corpse wasn't the way to go. Not the first time I've encountered a Disposable Babymaker in fanfic.

"The Kids Aren't All Right" by Christine Everhart (vanityfair.com) by samdonne
Iron Man, gen. "'It’s been 'a hell of a year' since industrialist Tony Stark owned up to his alter ego in a move that stunned observers and longtime aides alike. With the US facing unprecedented homegrown suicide attacks, Iron Man's contribution to national security is more than ever under scrutiny. As she follows Stark during a year of crisis, exclusively for 'Vanity Fair,' Christine Everhart explores the many contradictions of the man behind the mask, uncovers tales of personal loyalty, patriotism gone awry and corporate betrayal, and asks whether Iron Man is the embodiment of an outdated American fantasy—a self-made, unilateral, technological solution to hopelessly complex problems—and whether he can survive the violent encounter with reality." // Meta fic. Article pastiche formatted to look like the real thing, as written by a canon character. Excellent fic set at some point after the second movie. Background plot involving a national terrorism crisis with suicide bombers following an Israeli incursion into Iran and a McCain presidency showing in a rather subtle way the impact of Iron Man on a world not unlike this one. It's also interesting how it ignores characters like Happy and JARVIS; it *would* be difficult to peg them as individually important from an outside POV. Orig. links post here: http://samdonne.livejournal.com/81116.html Missed this one the first time around as I wasn't paying much attention to mcu fandom at the time (see also obsession_inc's noir fic "Concession," which nudged me into finally watching these movies :P).

LotR, Legolas/Gimli. "When the Grey Company escapes from the Paths of the Dead with an army of ghosts at their heels, Legolas believes that everyone who entered the Dark Door has emerged again unharmed. He's wrong. Some wounds cannot be seen." // 36K. Gimli freaked the fuck out on the Paths, unnoticed by anyone; it totally upended his view of the world and himself. As Legolas (POV) puts everything he has into figuring out what's wrong with Gimli during their crazy-long ride to Pelargir, while ghosts dog their heels, he comes to a few realizations about elves, dwarves, and his relationship with Gimli. Pretty, but, wow, requires patience because it is the sloooowest of slo-mo romances.

The Right Way to Fall by Taste_is_Sweet
Captain America, Steve/Bucky. When Steve's finally tabled his search for Bucky and must return to NYC, Sam goes back to his own life and work -- and promptly stumbles over a lurking Bucky by accident. Without telling Steve, he embarks on a slow process of luring feral Bucky in from the cold, which turns out more complicated than even he'd anticipated, especially after Tony Stark decides to help. // (41K) Weird, I know I've read half of this before. Maybe it wasn't posted complete? Dunno. Anyway, fairly worthwhile. Largely Sam POV, truckload of h/c, no slash content per se until the very end. Some attempts to fold in BW comic canon, which I always like. [Heh. My ~process: "So, fanfic, you've piled on the complications. How you gonna deal now? Time for the Cosmic Cube?" Story: "No no no! ... Well, not quite." Me: Oh. *headdesk*] (But the AoS xover followups are fairly pointless. Pass.)

Trigger Finger by Deastar
Avengers, Clint/Natasha. Directly after the Avengers movie, Clint's accidentally injures himself and is grounded pending psych clearance; Natasha self-appoints as his keeper. She uses her downtime to reconstruct her life-as-usual and teach self-defense classes to their new crop of potential leverage-hostages; he uses his to patch together his messed-up head. // Pre-phase 2 (including AoS). Alternating Clint and Natasha POVs. Mostly gen: they're not in a relationship per se beyond the work-spouses deal, and only after they've sorted out their respective issues, do they decide to give it a go. The majority of the fic is both of them slowly getting to know their new Avenger-related coworkers. Grown-up and readable.
"I’m teaching a self-defense class here at SHIELD. Ms. Potts, Dr. Foster, Ms. Lewis." Natasha pauses slightly. "Dr. Banner." She lets him chew on that for a minute, and then says, "I’d appreciate your help with it."
"They benched you to babysit me." Clint’s mouth tightens. "Shit, Tasha – I don’t need—"
"I’d appreciate your help," she repeats, cutting him off without hesitation.

Steve Rogers' American Captain
Captain America, gen. Comic. Steve POV. Steve's (less-than) fun adventures with PTSD and modern life as recounted by the man himself via indy diary comic. // In comics canon, Steve's actually a comic book artist; in MCU canon, he's an artist as well, so this works doubly well. I wish I'd known about this sooner; on the other hand, I'd have had to wait for installments rather than reading most in one go. It's thoroughly awesome. The art style reminds me of Jules Feiffer.

Now Brad discovers that Nate's not living alone: he has a very small roommate named Linus, and a very huge case of PTSD. // 62K of kidfic? I don't like kidfic for the sake thereof, but this one actually does work. It's engrossing and mildly suspenseful, and seems IC given the situation. Brad slowly sorts Nate out in the limited time he has, and Nate comes to grips with being a single father, having Brad back on hand, and getting his head back together.
