    I love the world-building in this series. Team Boto (formerly Badger) are as awesome as their pink dolphin tattoos, and their HR impact on the way SHIELD works things out for the Avengers makes a wonderful change!

    Summary

    Prompt: "After the events of IM 1, Tony joins the expedition searching for Captain America as a holiday to get away from all the media speculation and stock value crash hate he was getting from the board. He's testing out new kit, working up a new portfolio of technology to boost the company back up, when he finds a plane wreck, buried halfway under the Greenland ice sheet."

    That is how he ends up hiding Captain America in plain sight, while the man gets adjusted to the 21st century. He is just doing him a favor, okay?

    What could possibly go wrong?

    Summary

    When Voldemort came to kill Harry, Lily met him with a SIG Sauer pistol she bought at a pawn shop. Seems Dark Lords die as easily as anyone else when you empty two clips into them.

    Hailed as the savior of the Wizarding world, Lily has a live baby, a dead husband, the personal enmity of most of the Dark Lord's followers, and not the slightest idea how to put her life back together.

    Phoenixes have it easy. Burn, die, rise from the ashes.

    For humans it's a bit different. Sort of.

    You know, until this fic, I'd never actually considered how Tom Riddle might feel about being little Ginny Weasley's sounding board and sympathetic pen friend for all those months...and now I almost feel sorry for Tom!

    Summary

    No species is all good or all evil. The tok'ra like to believe they are the "good" side of the onac race--the symbiotes who developed into the goa'uld. However, the tok'ra never mention Shamash or Samas, the ancient Sumerian god who was really one of the early queens. She (or really Samas prefers to be called a he) remembers the onac before the corruption of Ra, and he tried to lead his people back to a life in the water. He failed. However, thousands of years later, one gunnery sergeant on a suicide mission stumbled into a South American river, and Samas found he had another chance. The SGC and later Atlantis gave Samas a chance to save his people and make a few changes for the better in this universe. Samas once allowed Ra to take everything away from him. This time Samas is going to make sure his people are strong enough to stand up to any enemy. And to serve that end, he's going to make sure that those that he trusts--Tony, John, Rodney, Teyla, Ronon, Elizabeth, Major Teldy, Radek, Miko, Kyli and others--have the power to combat anyone who tries to take Atlantis from them.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is a powerful little piece about Peggy Carter and Susan Pevensie, and their lives post-canon. I really like the idea that Susan's refusal to discuss Narnia was not some sort of moral failing, but a personal choice to accept that she was too old to return and move forward with her life in the world that was left to her. I also love the idea that Susan's experience with Narnian warfare makes her an ideal candidate for the SSR/SHIELD.

    (Now if only, we could see her up against/mentoring Clint...)

    Summary

    "I'm driving first," Sally said. "Guv can take over after me. If we're all still mad enough to be at this after that, John can drive third shift. Then the freak, if we decide we can risk it."

    "John doesn't drive," said Sherlock.

    "Then what's John along for?" Sally protested. Which Greg reckoned had to be just Sally trying to wind Sherlock up. She knew better. All night in a car with Sherlock was bad enough. All night driving round and round the M25 looking for a killer, with Sherlock deprived of John Watson, sounded like a new circle of hell.

    Summary

    This latest effort is not from the Guitar Man universe. Instead, atlinmerrick and I got to chatting about her story Canvas, and then she linked to this picture of John with writing all over his skin, which has inspired some Minutae stories for her. She then challenged me to write a words-on-skin story too. Does this make it a meme now?

    I was going to write it next week. It happened today instead. It's kind of schmoopy. I hope you like it.

    This is simply the best fem!John gets pregnant story ever! It's snarky, hilarious, and touching without descending into too much sentimentality. (I think my favourite paragraph has to be the one that starts: "There's a baby head sticking out of your vagina," Sherlock observed. "Does the rest come out soon?")

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Martin Crieff/Tony Stark - two worlds and two characters that seem like they should be totally incompatible, until you start reading and find that flawedamythyst has flawlessly matched up all of their softer edges, hobbies and vulnerabilities! Because how many people truly want to listen to Tony talk about his inventions all day? And how many people would be happy to let Martin ramble on about his fascination with planes? I am just so glad this has turned into more than a one-shot ♥ .

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A beautifully written story that showcases Sherlock's love of music through the eyes (ears?) of John and the fingers of Mycroft playing his compositions for John after the Reichenbach Fall. It's lovely to see a more unguarded Mycroft than usual, talking to John about his brother and the complications of their relationship.
