    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is my go-to Marvel fic series, really. I have loved this thing for years and years, it's the perfect balance of humour and gut-punch feels, with all of the found family you could want. I just. really adore this. I do not have the words for how much this means to me

    Also long excerpt because long 'verse

    “Shouldn't be long now,” he said, bracing one knee and smiling up at the gathered protesters. They were milling around, looking at him with worried eyes and confusion and no small amount of trepidation.

    Drew ducked under the barrier. “Do you want to, you know, move him away from here?” he asked, crouching down next to Steve.

    “Why?” Steve said.

    “People are taking pictures,” Drew said. “Uh, you do realize what we're doing here, right?”

    Steve arched his eyebrows. “I can read. Looks to me like you're protesting for federal recognition, as opposed to state recognition, for the right to marry.”

    “Gay marriage,” Drew said, calm about it.

    “I like weddings,” Steve said. “All for 'em.”

    “You maybe shouldn't be photographed here-” Drew started, and Steve lost his temper.

    “Thanks for the consideration, and I'm trying not to take offense here, I really am, but if I had an issue with where I currently was standing, I'm old enough to move. I don't have any problem with being photographed here, in fact, give me a dang sign, and I'll be photographed holding that, and it's kind of insulting you think that I would have a problem with being photographed here,” he said, shoulders tight. “I think that denying any American citizen a basic right of any kind is just an EMBARRASSMENT for everything that this country stands for, and the sooner we get over this sort of exclusionary political nonsense, the better.”

    Drew stared at him. “I want to hug you. You are the most adorable human being in the entire world,” he said, at last.

    “The terrifying thing is that he's completely sincere,” Tony said, making everyone jump, because he had appeared out of the gathering crowd without his usual chaos. Probably because everyone was busy watching Steve make an idiot out of himself. He had a hot dog in one hand and large flat case slung over his shoulder. He tipped his head forward, eyes dancing behind the lenses of his glasses. “C'mon, Cap, you have to tell the rest of us when you're going to go out to fight for social justice, it's only fair. We're bored, too.”

    “It was a spur of the moment thing,” Steve explained. “Sometimes social injustice just HAPPENS.”

    Summary

    Harveste began like this - another inconspicuous day in a slew of boring days, starting off with a perfunctory visit to the market, messing about with what could possibly be a very silly idea, and ending in a sense of accomplishment and the first installment. The day after that, buoyed into hitherto unfamiliar levels of ecstasy by readers’ comments (seriously, thank you so much to my first readers), the second installment. And then it just snowballed from there: the researching, the planning, watching and searching out all the little macabre details in a feverish giddy rush.

    My absolute favorite project, hands down, and the one I’ve had the most progress with. I’m quite proud that this is the first contribution I’ll be making to AO3, and I’m certain it won’t be the last. I hope this inspires me to continue and finish what I’ve started, because dear Harveste deserves that.

    Summary

    Antonia Stark was born a girl...and changed the world by not having a dick. Who knew? Also, she's a Guide. Tony still ends up in a cave in Afghanistan with iron in her heart and a box of scraps, and she still escapes. With style. And explosions - lots of explosions. Meeting a viking god from another realm - who's also a Sentinel - in the desert? Not part of her life plan. Good thing she's an engineer - and that he's very pretty. Tony likes pretty things.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I have such a weakness for fem Tony Stark it's unreal. And this is like, one of the best examples of why. Badassery, snark, stubborn refusal to bow and be a pretty ornament, the social commentary, and how Tony will always be Tony Fucking Stark thank you very much, the s n a r k -
    Paired with the sentinel fusion and just - ugh yes so much yes please and thank you

    Also. That epilogue scene is going to have me cackling at inopportune moments for a long, long time

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Gentle people do not just arrive in the world, already made like they are. Gentle people like her and Remus Lupin are made the way they are by a world that tells them that they can't be like that- they choose to be kind everyday that the world is not.

    If you try to fight people like them, then you inevitably lose. Maybe not now, maybe not even soon, but at some point down the road you will. Because Gentle people are not soft- they choose to fall in love with people who will die on them, choose to give a young boy chocolate and a home no matter how much he reminds them of what they've lost.

    Gentle people have a core of steel, a heart that can take blow after blow and still remain standing.

    This is a perfect character study and melding of worlds, and I adore it so.

    It fixes plot holes as it goes, and it shows the importance of family - blood and found, and how your traits are strengths and that you cannot let the world dictate whether they are a positive or negative.

    Good is a choice, not a description.

    Sid's been pretty much half-hard since he knew what was waiting for him at the end of the night: Geno, who takes a really hands-on approach in showing his appreciation of Sid's hockey.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    hot, cute, funny. what more could you ask for?

    like no really - I couldn't stop myself from grinning on the bus and not because of the smut (I can mostly keep a straight face at that), but because of how cute and in character and perfect it all was.

    Tanger makes eye contact with Sid and jerks his head to the side subtly, distracting the guys further by saying something ridiculous, and Sid mouths I owe you at him as he grabs Geno's arm and drags him through the door.

    "In hurry, Sid?" Geno says.

    Two can play at this game. "Oh, you're not?" he says, stopping and looking at Geno, mirroring his wide-eyed, innocent look. "My bad. I misread the situation. I'll just head back to my — "

    "No," Geno cuts in, turning Sid forward and shoving him a little. "Very hurry. Go."

    Sid stands his ground. "No, really, I don't want to inconvenience you or anything."

    "Sid," Geno complains, plastering himself to Sid's back, resting his chin on Sid's head. He shoves again. "Move. Go. Please."

    "Well, since you asked nicely," Sid says, and he starts moving again.

    Geno's hand is on the back of Sid's neck and he squeezes it a little before saying lowly, "Gonna make you ask nicely, just because of this."

    And yes, it manages to dish out shit and still be so damn hot. it's perfect. I love it so much.
