Technically the movie comes out on video tonight at midnight and, yes, I was considering heading to a Best Buy to enjoy the release with my fellow Marvel-nuts...but I'm resisting. Barely. To help with that, it's the final day of fic recs.

First one I totally didn't expect to fall head over heels for: Amateur Theatrics

In which Thor’s primary problem-solving method (a mighty blow from Mjolnir) fails to have the desired effect on a magical artifact, and his secondary method (a mightier blow from Mjolnir) proves to be actively disastrous.


Why you should read it: It's a wonderful Clint POV fic where he alone manages to avoid the magical fallout from Loki's latest plot. I won't give away most of the antics, suffice to say Tony is just about the only one who actually enjoys his outcome, but it is a de-aged Loki story and little Loki is adorable and yet still quintessentially Loki. It's charming, fun and has great characterizations of everyone.

And continuing the fun recs I have to point you to Candy Shop:

Calling the Avengers Tower an "embarrassment of riches" is a shameful understatement.


Why you should read it: Pepper and Natasha talking about the boys, comparing notes, and tossing around a few theories. Because The Avengers is so a chick flick, just my kind of chick flick.

One last one, Curving Like the Ocean:

"You want me to have HR arrange some team building for you?" Fury sounds incredibly skeptical.

"No, no. God, no." Tony shudders at the thought of trust falls and talking about his feelings. "Pool party in Malibu. I've already got Darcy working on it."


Why you should read it: Hilarity from start to finish, also Darcy and Tony plot to throw the sexiest pool party in history. Tony and Darcy are a combination that should be front and center in more stories, they really just should, they're sort of like a snarky force of nature. Speaking of:

"Mmmm--Clint--wait--" Clint backs off a little. Darcy almost melts at the hot look in his eyes, but she has a mission here. Nookie can wait for a few. "I need to run something past you so that you don't have a jealousy melt-down."

Clint looks suspicious. "Does this have something to do with Stark?"

"No, I keep telling you, it's like he's the Darcy from the genderswap AU universe. The two of us would collapse the space-time continuum if we tried anything." Darcy huffs an impatient breath at his baffled look. "Anyway, it's not Tony. I just wanted to give you a heads-up that I'm going to grope Captain America. For justice."


Also the Clint/Darcy stuff? Hotness. And it contains my all time favorite OT3, Tony/Pepper/Bruce, so yay!

Neil and I are working on catching up on watching the pre-Avengers movies so we can watch the Avengers. Last weekend we watched Captain America, and we still have Ironman 2, Thor, and Hulk to go. Yeah, we're really behind on our movie watching. By the way, would you say that Hulk is an essential prerequisite? That's the one that we're least excited about watching.

Ok let me say that I was initially very reluctant to watch The Hulk as well, but I have to say I liked it much more than I did Thor. I dither about calling it a pre-requisite because they recast (brilliantly) Bruce in The Avengers but I can say it *is* a really good film and it gives you a good idea of Bruce's life on the run. Also worth it for the teaser after the credits, which is just awesome.
