Fair warning, this thing is spoiler-central, so it’s going to be under a cut. I recommend reading either A) after you’ve seen the film, or B) if you haven’t seen the film but would like some details on possible triggers that are in it. Because it does have some heavily triggering material in it.
This week I’m back on the fanfics. Still Avengers. Still Steve/Tony. Still movie based (for the most part). But it’s also a bit different. Today, I’m only talking about one fanfic.
One long fanfic.
It is currently at 227,287 words, and it’s still being updated. Not to mention the companion arc, which is nearing 100,000 words all on its own.
Ladies and gents, if you want to spend the next month reading fanfiction, please look up scifigrl47’s Toasterverse series. It’s hilarious and smart and quick-witted and heart-wrenchingly beautiful, all in equal parts. And like I said, it’s still being updated. The author has been steadily adding more chapters on a pretty regular basis, I’ve noticed.
Oh, and if you get to the end of the 220k+ words and still need more, there is a companion arc set in the same universe called Phil Coulson’s Case Files. It’s primarily Phil/Clint in nature, and there are other background pairings.
It’s good. It’s very good.
I highly recommend it.
This Friday, it’s all about The Avengers. Steve and Tony, to be specific. Here are five fics from the movie-verse cannon that I’ll recommend to anyone just starting out in the whole Marvel fandom thing.
