Thanks for that The Fabric of Life rec, it's long and good so far; I barely have any time to read it, but I'm savoring the hell out of it.

Another Sherlock rec: The Least of All Possible Mistakes, by rageprufrock. What if Lestrade was a woman, and every bit as much a badass? And had chemistry with Mycroft? Alas, it's WIP, but she has a great track record and is one of my favorite BNF.

So, you guys hit on every Steve/Tony fic I've ever read and liked, I think. Semaphore is my favorite.

Avengers recs!
The Only John Wayne Left in This Town
Clint/Darcy: Clint's got a secret love, and it's spelled b-a-n-j-o.
we were emergencies
Clint/Natasha: It's not about being unmade; it's about remaking, one aching step at a time.
I've read and loved others but I'm terrible at bookmarking so it's likely I'll never find them again.

An Old Solution.

If you're a Darcy fan, I recommend Matchmaker, Matchmaker - "Darcy and Jane band together to get Tony and Bruce to realize their attraction to one another because Jane wants more time with Thor and Darcy likes to ship her employers." It's Darcy/Steve, told from Darcy's perspective, and the author captured her voice and awesomeness well.

I'm interested. I tend to like the Scibros and Darcy is totally awesome. I hope she's in Thor 2

Learning to Fly, by astolat. No pairings, just a gen/relationship story with Loki and Thor. I really liked this one - I used to read this particular author quite a bit in other fandoms.

Thanks for the "The Last Love Song of Anthony E. Stark" rec, Cynara. That one really was terrific.

Ooh, yes! I recc'd that one earlier and it's magical. Did you see the fanart that inspired it? Fantastic!

Ooh, I didn't know he wrote Avengers, too! Dang, I'll have to check that out. I love his White Collar stuff. Especially "Exquisite", which is aptly named. With as much as they insinuate and wink at on that show, it might as well be canon. Also, "Jeffrey Nullier's 'Man With Fedora'" is excellent.

Speranza is quite reliably good, especially Subliminal. And this is one (astolat's) take on what Sherlock's return could look like. As You Consume the Longitudes is about as schmoopy as I can imagine Sherlock ever getting.

For more recs:
silvia kundera
alicambs

And a Lois McMaster Bujold rec: Twenty-Year Man, by ellen fremedon. Ivan ("That idiot!") grows up, and accidentally discovers a talent for politicking. The fic also gives me something I've wanted since A Civil Campaign: more Byerly.

I read another fun Avengers fic since my last post: Boys Wanna Be Her, a Clint/Natasha bodyswap. I admire the author's ability to keep track of pronouns!

Sherlock BBC: this recs list (and the author herself) should keep you reading for a while. Some have already been mentioned here. Not everything was ~wonderful~ but it's all consistently high quality.

I'm going to be obnoxious and re- re- recommend aderyn on AO3 for Sherlock BBC stuffs. It's really a showdown between holyfant, her, and irisbleufic for my top Sherlock authors.

Especially during the sex scene. I kept getting disoriented and I was just reading it!

For some reason that one reminded me of another fic I love, with a totally different cliche: telepathy. When I Think (Oh It Terrifies Me) Steve/Tony, porny and adorable. Porndorable, if you will.

I fell down the rabbit hole at TV Tropes again tonight and eventually ended up the OT3 page and apparently in the Avengers fandom, the Iron Man/Captain America/Hulk OT3 name is Stark Spangled Banner, which might actually be the greatest thing I've ever heard.

I love that. I've also seen Clint/Natasha referred to as Black Hawk, which I like, although I think Black Eye would probably be more apropos. All other name-smushing portmanteaus can, as usual, die in a fire.

The Sun Is But a Morning Star, in which, Post-Reichenbach, John and Irene work together to save Sherlock from himself.

Do It So It Feels Like Hell by paperclipbitch. I adore this author's Molly. She's shy without being weak.

It also crossed my mind that someone out there had to have mixed Sherlock with "A Study In Emerald," and, yes, of course, there were tons of stories. The Queen's Guard by lavvyan, though, is so pitch perfect, I thought I would never need to read any other fusions of the two universes. I mean, who doesn't need a story where Sherlock is a quarter alien, Irene is a dirigible pilot, and John is still John, the doctor and soldier?

At least, I thought the above story was all I'd ever need, until I came across Polaris by sevenses (Mature). This story was written after the first season of Sherlock and, therefore, does not reflect Season Two characterization. It's more accurate to describe it as BBC Sherlock and John meet ACD Irene in the world of "A Study in Emerald." The fic itself is haunting, with beautiful, lyrical prose, capturing the style of Gaiman's Doyle pastiche.

Also, during that search, although it wasn't what you were asking for, I discovered an amazing retelling of "A Scandal In Bohemia" set in the "A Study In Emerald" universe, The Terror from Bohemia: Being the Reminiscences of John H. Watson, M.D., in the Year of the Old Ones 745 by Satchelfoot (Teen And Up Audiences). The final line is exactly right.

I also mentioned upthread that I'm addicted to Sherlock crossovers, and I got a kick out of Space Oddity by Emmylou (T): Sherlock Holmes was hit by an explosion in 2010 and when he woke up it was 1983. Gene Hunt isn't ready for a new DI yet, and doesn't know what he's in for.

I liked Gene's growing, grudging affection for Sherlock, and Sherlock's desperate need to *solve* the mystery of why he's in the past--and how to return home. Also features Gene Hunt punching Sherlock in the face. And the gut. That needs to happen in every timeline.

Another fantastic crossover (this one with Dollhouse) is Synchronized Duplicity by DemonQueen666 (Teen And Up Audiences). This WIP accomplishes some amazing things with gender identity and sexuality. I didn't even know what was happening in this story until at least Chapter Three, so I strongly suggest that you read it at least that far, before you decide if you want to keep reading. Since I don't want to spoil anyone who wants to discover the plot on his or her own, I put the rest of this rec in spoiler text:
Spoiler:
Post-Reichenbach, Sherlock's mind is placed into a female active. As far as Sherlock's concerned, it's his intellect that truly matters, not his body. So, basically, John is screwed (and not in a fun way).
Another mind-blowing Dollhouse crossover is Backup Copies, which, at first, seems like a sweet love story about two people who can't live without each other. When you stop to think about it, though, you realize that it's creepy as hell, with layers of moral ambiguity.

There's a very good chance I'm going to spend my next couple days at work reading fics you guys have recced. Avengers? White COllar? YES PLEASE. Though I started poking around the other day looking for good Dean/Jo SPN fic which is out of fashion right now. Woe.

Also if everyone could please stop publishing their Twilight fanfic that'd be awesome.

Okay, Suits! Like I really need another fandom to jump into, but whatever. So, remember that time when Harvey was giving Mike advice and referenced the Kobayashi Maru and talked about why Kirk was awesome? Then I give you:

"5U175" by Closer! Harvey's guilty pleasure is being a Star Trek BNF online. Mike, knowing none of that, ends up watching the show and wades into the fandom himself. Hilarity and awesomeness ensues. This fic is a thing of beauty! I stayed up until, like, 4:30 reading it. It's got it all! Livejournal entries, Fandom!Secrets, the FML blog, kinkmemes, comments flame wars! Add lovely characterization on top of that and it gives me life!


Anyone else got Suits recs?
