Hi! I'm Ria and here I'll post my fic recs.

Tags:

Fandom: Marvel (MCU)

Title: Wit Without a Conscience Equipped
Author: coricomile
Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word count: 7816
Summary: The cabin is small and quaint and almost charming. It looks very postcard-like with its fireplace and stuffed moose head and honest to god bear skin rug. There's no Internet or phone service this far out in Nowhere, Canada, but Tony doesn't actually need either of those things to survive. No, really.

Why I like it: This fic is a must-read for MCU Steve/Tony fans in my opinion. At one point in this Tony wonders if what they go through here is their "PTSD moment" and nothing more - but it is exactly that AND SO MUCH MORE.

Tony and Steve crash after a mission and end stuck, snowed-in in a small cabin in Canada with snow and ice surrounding them. Steve, being who he is, deals not well being stuck under snow and ice for obvious reasons, Tony can emphasize and so they try to keep busy. There's wonderful clothes sharing, bonding and wonderfully described growing intimacy between them. In another fic I might have found the mention of pop-culture references like Fifty Shades off putting (and I frequently have that problem with MCU fic), but in this fic it was used in such a funny way that I even had to smile at Steve ending up reading them.

It's a wonderful fic about attraction, the complications of PTSD and people stuck together in closed quarters.

Marvel Ultimates: Crash Love (Fic)

Fandom: Marvel Ultimates

Title: Crash Love
Author: saral_hylor
Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Rating: Explicit
Word count: 21 632
Summary: It’s just sex. Just sex between two consenting adults who don’t have feelings for each other beyond the camaraderie that comes from being on the same team.

It’s just sex. Until it isn’t. It’s not love. Until it is.

Final Fantasy VII: Surrender (Fic)

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII

Title: Surrender

Arrow: Goodbyes Are Never Easy (Fic)

Fandom: Arrow

Title: Goodbyes Are Never Easy
Author: Cartecka
Characters/Pairings: Nyssa al Ghul/Sara Lance with Oliver/Sara
Rating: Mature
Word count: 11 202 words
Summary: My take on what's going on in Sara's head during the Heir to the Demon episode. If you want a way too detailed analysis of a character's thoughts then this is the fic for you. It also has flashbacks to Sara's time in the League.

Doctor Who: Insomnia (Fic)

Fandom: Doctor Who

Title: Insomnia
Author: samchandler1986
Characters/Pairings: Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswin Oswald
Rating: Teen and Up Audiences
Word count: 30045

Set between Flatline and In the Forest of the Night, canon-compliant.

Marvel (MCU): To Strike A Match (Fic)

Fandom: Marvel (MCU)

Title: To Strike A Match
Author: 51stcenturyfox
Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Word count: 5191
Summary: The marks that appeared on nearly every human one day weren’t very obvious -- a pattern resembling the whorl of a fingerprint and almost as unique, on the inner wrist, tinted the color of coal-black ink. Almost as unique, because everyone was supposed to have a match somewhere on earth, and when the match was found, with a solid press of bared wrist to wrist, mark to mark, the pattern disappeared.

Why I like it: This is a wonderful take on the now common soulmate tropes where marks identify the people meant for each other. There is a cool worldbuilding idea here, that this is not just a concept that always existed, but something that suddenly happens to the whole world and media and people react to it in different ways. Tony, of course, is a skeptic - Steve, on the other hand has already lots of other things to deal with and it seems the super soldier serum makes it impossible for him to even have a mark.

The build up for the misunderstanding was really nicely prepared and it all grew nicely out of the characterization and out of their personal issues. It's a very fund and sweet read that I can heartily recommend.

Fandom: Marvel (MCU), Captain America (Movies)

Title: The Woman in the Red Dress
Author: raise_the_knife/Starfire (kalypsobean)
Characters/Pairings: Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Rating: Not Rated
Word count: 2422
Summary: The first time he wakes up knowing that he's in the twenty-first century, he thinks of Peggy, and wonders what she would have thought of all this.

Why I like it: Light angst ahead. This is a short but very sweet look at how Steve goes from the confused Super soldier who just woke up in present day New York who missed his chance at romance, to the man who meets an older Peggy Carter again. It's sad, but it's also sweet and Natasha's involvement in this makes absolute sense and adds a nice additional touch.
