    I don't know why this series doesn't have a lot more traffic. It's fantastic. It reminds me a bit of Copperbadge's work, but with this author's own spin on a lot of fun, creativity, solemnity, and meaning. Excellent work.

    I can't count the number of times that I've returned to this series. To be frank, this is my post-Deathly Hallows headcanon, in lieu of Cursed Child. I much prefer Harry here. This Harry is a consistently wonderful father.

    or, Peggy Carter is accidentally sent time-travelling by mind-controlled rogue Nazi secret agents. (If anyone ever asked, honesty would compel her to admit that this is probably not the strangest thing to ever happen to her; those come after the time travel.)

    Summary

    "A giant of a man wearing what looked like the American flag as some sort of armour was storming towards him from the ground. From above, a red and gold flying metal robot dove towards them. And directly in front of him, an alien struggled through the wreckage of its hovercraft with a snarl and a deadly looking gun.

     

    Sometimes he had to pause a moment to wonder how he got himself into these situations."

    This is one of those awesome Harry meets the Avengers fics. However, this story takes quite a different spin on things. Harry is a dimension-hopping traveler looking for Sirius. I've come back to this story many times as it definitely holds up to numerous re-reads.

    Not many people knew that the most powerful wizard in the world lived in America. However, Director Fury made it his business to know these things, especially since he seemed a prime candidate for his Avengers Initiative. Unfortunately, the wizard in question didn't quite agree. One-shot.

    There are several fics out there, many of which I love, wherein Harry is in NYC and helps out during the Battle of Manhattan in the first Avengers movie. This fic takes a unique spin, by making Harry the senior agent, who helps bring the crew together. It's a fascinating approach and I greatly enjoyed reading it.

    This story always makes me happy. I enjoy fics of all types and tropes, but the ones that seriously, sincerely depict Ron as a huge Berk 99.9% of the time baffle me. Harry would never have stayed friends with Ron if that were true. So, here's a great example of the kind of mettle, compassion and loyalty Ron was capable of, and why JKR made him Harry's first best friend.

    All boys, except one, grow up. Isn’t that the way the story goes? Well, not this time. This time you will get to read the really real version. Peter Pan was not a 10-year-old boy. He was not even a boy really. And his nemesis was not a sea captain. The Lost Boys weren’t really boys either. Wendy, John, and Michael WERE children however...

    There is only one scenario the Ares IV crew, impeccably trained over the course of three years, was not prepared for. It takes four years for NASA to learn of the mistake they made when they pronounced Mark Watney dead on Sol 6.

    But that wasn’t what was astonishing- oh no, that was the faded lettering on his EVA suit, the once bright colours of the American flag on his shoulder, and most of all the dulled name: Watney.

    Summary

    Padme lives. She runs.

    --

    Leia is growing in fits and spurts, eating greedily and crying loudly. She stays in a sling on Padme’s chest when they move, Luke held snug in a sling around Obi Wan’s. Luke gets a whole head of thick brown hair while Leia’s is still patchy and bald, but he never matches his sister’s powerful lungs.

    When Padme had been sitting in her high senatorial apartment on Corsucant, holding Anakin’s sweaty hand, she had never imagined she’d be murmuring desperately soothing noises to her fussy daughter while she shot around a corner at stormtroopers, while R2D2 meddles with a ship’s blast doors behind her.

    Luke starts teething on a hot jungle planet where they hunker down for three weeks, sleeping in an abandoned old temple and catching the local wildlife for dinner. Leia takes her first steps in the belly of a Corellian freighter they’ve stowed away on. She wobbles between Padme’s outstretched hands and Obi Wan’s knees and boxes of smuggled luxuries. When she falls down, Obi Wan surges forward, heart in his throat, but Leia laughs.
