So, that quote from Infinity War, when Loki says, “I assure you, brother, the sun will shine on us again.” It reminds me of a fic (and I can already tell this is going to be one of those times when — once I find said fic — I will realize they are not similar […]

If They Haven’t Learned Your Name, by silentwalrus I started reading this fic waaaaaay back — probably back in 2016. Back when the number of MCU movies I enjoyed enough to watch more than once outnumbered the ones I considered better off forgotten. Every time a new chapter’s been posted, I’ve opened it up and […]

So the *next* Avengers movie, post-Infinity War, turns out to have a “secret” title (it’s everywhere, but here’s one article). The whole thing is pretty clickbait-y, but it’s also an excellent opportunity for jokes. It’s a spoiler, right? Some suggestions: *Avengers: Obviously The World Doesn’t End In Infinity War Because We Have A Bunch More […]

Being part of a serial canon fandom as it’s unfolding is always interesting. (The ‘who is Blaise Zabini’ kerfluffle was a personal fave.) There are fics written in between movies (or books, or whatever) that only work right then, and lots of series have that question of ‘how will we do x’ that gets answered […]

Apparently I’m in a very non-committal space right now, because I keep reading things and not bookmarking them. So I went checking back to see if I’d ever recced to dwell is to die, by FeoplePeel Quill’s Guardians are a group of reformed criminals at best; save the literal empath they’ve recently outfitted themselves with, […]

Found this one in my ‘Saved For Later’ history in AO3. One of those ‘post-Cap2, pre-everything-else’ fics that envisions a happier MCU where people nap in puppy piles and visit IHOP for breakfast. The Gift Horse, by fartherfaster Sam and Darcy are formally introduced for the first time. Sam says “formally” with some flexibility. And […]

Two fics today, because they’re connected and great and I just want everyone to be friends and eat pancakes. How (Not) to Meet New People, by aloneintherain (Peter meets Foggy.) And the sort-of sequel, avocado socks and burnt pancakes, by aloneintherain (Peter meets the rest of Team Daredevil.) Peter glanced between the three of them. […]
