RATING/WARNING(S): PG | spoilers for Thor: The Dark World
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 27,700
MAIN CHARACTERS: Loki, Thor, Frigga

FIC SUMMARY: When Loki turns up demanding Thor's help on a quest to retrieve the All-Mother from Valhalla, Thor isn't about to say no. But that doesn't mean he's forgotten anything, and what better time than a road trip through the backwaters of the universe for trying to talk things out?

RECCER'S NOTES: Loki and Thor are both very well written - Loki a genuinely twisty bitter bastard, albeit one who loves his mum, and Thor rather more intelligent than many people give him credit for, especially when it comes to his brother. The worlds they pass through are sometimes harmless, often horrifying, and always weird. Hopping across worlds like stepping stones on the way to Hel, and there is, as always in these stories, a catch...

MAIN CHARACTERS: Edna Mode, Peter Parker

FIC SUMMARY: Crossover. Too bad there isn't a category called 'silly'...SpiderMan gets some help with his itchy suit and a costume designer gets a new career direction.

RECCER'S NOTES: I love Edna here. Pity she didn't let Peter get any words in.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Edwin Jarvis, Peggy Carter, Howard Stark

FIC SUMMARY: Edwin Jarvis learns to navigate in the wake of Steve Rogers.

RECCER'S NOTES: An interesting look at Edwin Jarvis. Captures the determination and melancholy of Season 1, as Jarvis navigates around the legend of Captain America, and his friends' lingering grief for a fallen hero.

RATING/WARNING(S): Teen
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete | 3317
MAIN CHARACTERS: Matt Murdock, Karen Page, Franklin "Foggy" Nelson

FIC SUMMARY: Matt knows better than to give a name to anything he can't keep, even if it's just a mangy cat who keeps showing up on his fire escape to beg for leftover tuna.

RECCER'S NOTES:

Hell's Kitchen is not an easy place to be, and Matt and Karen bond over their own troubles with it. It's not a fluffy read, but the comfort is wonderful. (And so is the hurt.)

AUTHOR LINK: [personal profile] muccamukk [archiveofourown.org profile] Muccamukk
RATING/WARNING(S): Teen / none
WIP?/WORD COUNT: complete / 3700 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Faiza Hussain

FIC SUMMARY: What it says on the tin. Featuring characters from Captain Britain, New Excalibur, Wisdom, and Captain Britain and MI:13.

RECCER'S NOTES: Faiza first appeared in the short-lived Captain Britain and MI:13, where the lifelong superhero fangirl turned into an Excablibur-wielding magic user. Working alongside some of her favs Faiza never lost that adorable giddyness, and this is a could-be-canon look at how she got there.

Faiza knows who she is, of course, everyone does. "No thank you, Captain Britain," she says, pleased with how grown up she sounds, even if her voice is high and shaking a little. "I can get back by myself."

Captain Britain's lips purse, and she hovers a little closer. "Are you sure?" she asks. "I can fly you right back to the window. Wouldn't you like to fly?"
