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!

In honor of my second viewing of The Avengers last night, I have to share this:

Wow I am slacking hardcore on updates these days. I am writing, I'm just writing actual stories and such rather than journal updates so I guess that's something. For those interested my fic is now mostly going up on Archive of Our Own, my AO3 page is here. My new Sherlock work is up there and one of my old Snupin fics. For those into Sherlock fic also check out my bookmarks because I've got some awesome stories linked up there.

What else? Ah yes, I entered Sherlockology's fiction contest, which was madness. I had about a week to come up with a 3,000 word Sherlockian story using only canon characters. As you might expect, the hardest bit was keeping it under 3,000 words (I think I had about 20 to spare). It took me 4 tries to come up with something I felt worthy of sending in and had a fit of nerves before I pulled the trigger but I did it and it felt good to know I'd at least tried. If it gets chosen it'll be published in an anthology they're releasing to help save Undershaw, the house Doyle wrote most of the Holmes stories in. It's a great cause and it'd be incredibly cool to be able to help them out in some small way.

Aside from that I was killing time until the Marvel Marathon. Yep, spent Thursday in a theater watching all of the Marvel flicks back to back before the new one at midnight. It was a lot of fun and the crowd was seriously into it. It was kind of nice as we were all wearing lanyards that when we saw one another outside the theater we'd grin and nod. Everyone in and around one another's rows got to know each other pretty well and we all chatted and geeked out between films.

Now some spoilery thoughts on The Avengers )
In short if you love comics, particularly Marvel comics, you need to see this movie. Go buy your ticket now, you won't regret it.
