♥The Virgin King (of the Spoctoria series) by waldorph
Synopsis: Kirk/Spock, first-time, epic. Jim never wants anything from Spock except the impossible: stop terrible re-imaginings of their romance, and make peace with the Romulans.
Quote: The opinion is shared, with the tabloids’ persistent theme of HRM’S BADBOY FIANCE NO VIRGIN: PALACE INSIDERS FURIOUS. Somehow the consensus is that Spock should be mad that he’s not going to be Jim’s first.
Notes: Please see above.
Avengers (2012) / Iron Man (movies) / Captain America (2011)
Start as You Mean to Go by Black Eyed Girl
Synopsis: Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, first-time. Tony gets that the others think this is an ego thing - the way he can’t resist pushing Steve’s buttons. Honest-to-God, the guy just bugs him. Mostly because Steve is distractingly perfect, but a little bit because of the family history.
Quotes: Tony gets that the others think this is an ego thing - the way he can’t resist pushing Steve’s buttons. Honest-to-God, the guy just bugs him. Mostly because Steve is distractingly perfect, but a little bit because of the family history.
Notes: Yet another fandom I'm jumping into... I love this. I love Stark's voice in this.
Magnetic series by boombangbig
Synopsis: Steve/Tony/Pepper, OT3, first-time. Tony and Pepper are in a committed relationship, everyone knows that. Tony still flirts relentlessly with Steve, though, and Steve doesn't know what to make of it. Then he starts having weird feelings about Pepper too, and he really, really doesn't know what to make of that.
Quote: “You smell good,” he says. “Why do you always smell good? Like... the man your man could smell like.”
Notes: I've discovered my new OT3. I thought all the voices were captured quite well and I loved Tony & Pepper's relationship in this.
♥Rock Splits, Records Fall Down by Valtyr
Synopsis: Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, first-time, possible dubcon (drunk). AU at the end of Ultimates 2. Time passes. The Ultimates try to work out where they're going and what they're doing, with a moderate level of success. Also, check out the gorgeous covers by skyearth85: here
Quote: "You've got to get yourself a doctorate, Stevie boy, or you'll never lure in the ladies."
Notes: This isn't movie-verse as noted in the author's synopsis/notes. But it's still understandable to a comic-verse virgin and I thought it was lovely.
This time tomorrow (where were we?) by dorcas_gustine
Synopsis: Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, comic-verse, slightly dark, psuedo-death (kinda). Tony goes to see Wanda, and suddenly Steve is alive and there are Skrulls! Or maybe Tony is just going crazy. Nothing happens in this fic, until the very end. Seriously. There's a lot of talking, mostly at inopportune moments, Tony's views on the acceptable gifts to give people are slightly different from everyone else's and he spends more time than would seem necessary being (half-)naked. What else is new?
Quote: "Isn't it strange?" she says, after a long time, but the voice is far away, at the edge of his consciousness. "You close your eyes and the world disappears."
Notes: Another fic more comic-verse but it's definitely understandable to a comic-verse virgin like myself. I'm starting to see main canon points as I read through these fics. I will warn that Tony's thoughts get dark and it's a bit gut-wrenching but so beautiful at the same time.
♥ Paper Planes & Playground Games by Mekosuchinae (LJ) or Memlu (AO3)
Synopsis: Sif/Loki. I alone know, as I think I do know, / your love beside Thor, / and that was the wicked Loki.
Quote: "Who wants to play with you?" Sif snapped.
Notes: I leaned more towards Thor/Loki during the movie but this... It just got me aflutter. Take a chance and read it.
Hawaii 5-0 (2011)
Sex Pollen by waldorph
Synopsis: what it says on the tin.
Quote: “Hospital,” Steve gasps, gripping the rusty pipe on the wall like it’s his salvation or something. Like his dick isn’t going to break out of his pants.
Notes: Steve/Danny, sex-pollen. See left.
This Gold Thread by versateine
Synopsis: Implied John/Sherlock, Space AU. She had studied the Legend of John more than any other. Now one of the protagonists of that story is standing in front of her in the flesh.
Notes: There's a lyrical quality to this of a fairytale nature. Short and bittersweet.
I Used to Live Alone Before I Knew You by etothepii
Synopsis: John/Sherlock, Good Omens fusion, first-time. Where Mycroft is an angel, Sherlock is a demon, and John is still John.
Quote: John stumbles into Sherlock's life by chance, and he is, surprisingly enough, a good man. Actually a good man, not just a man who considers himself good, or one who does good things in order to impress others.
Notes: Wonderfully done! I just wanted to stay in this world forevers.
The(y) Kiss by methimyesterday
Quote: If this were a romance novel, there would be a fire, two glasses of wine and roses.
Notes: Sherlock/Watson. Lyrical, beautifully formatted and such beautiful prose.
a family trait by Teaotter
Synopsis: Neal/Peter/Elizabeth, first-time. It’s hardly the strangest thing Neal has done since going to work for the Bureau of Paranormal Investigations.
Quote: "Neal? I. This is kind of embarrassing, but I need a favor. Could you drop by the house? Soon? I'm not sure who else to call..."
Notes: I would love to see more in this 'verse. such a wonderful concept! Also, super hot.
