Fic: Never Say Never

Title: Never Say Never
Author: lumediluna
Artist: borealisdawn
Rating: Strong PG-13
Word Count: 37,634
Type: AU, angsty romcom
Characters/Pairings: Tony Stark/Steve Rogers, Nick Fury, Obadiah Stane, Bucky, Pepper, implied Bucky/Pepper, Rhodey, and small cameos by others.
Warnings: Strong language, violence, angst, emotional abuse, mentions of physical abuse.
Summary: When 24-year old Tony Stark goes out to distract himself from the fact that he has been put on probation by his company's board of directors due to his partying lifestyle, he bumps into (quite literally) a law student named Steve Rogers, who has recently lost his father and has been 'dragged out' by his best friend to "have some fun."

"Some fun" turns into shots, Vegas, and...marriage?

Except, someone on probation is not allowed to have a quickie marriage. The only alternative is to somehow continue the farce until the probation is over, but that's not as easy as it sounds when very real feelings start being added to the equation.

Word Count: 28644
Type: AU
Characters/Pairings: Thor, Loki, Odin, Laufey, the Avengers
Warnings: none

Summary: After an inglorious defeat at the hands of Asgard, Laufey seizes the opportunity for revenge and kidnaps Odin's only son. He does not, expect, however, for his own son to take such a liking to the young Thor - or for one touch of Loki's hands to turn Thor Jotun blue. The two grow together, reigning beloved and terrible in Jotunheim, until one day a delegation from Asgard arrives to tear everything apart. Now, to prevent war, Thor must leave everything he knows to join a people who mistrust and fear him, while Loki deals with rebellion without his brother at his side - a war that grows to threaten Midgard as well. Now three realms hang on the bond between two false brothers, who must decide how their realms will stand or fall.

[Fic] I will ask you to open my door from your side, Clint/Coulson

Title: I will ask you to open my door from your side
Author: sirona_gs and delicatale
Artist: Tgda / tgda
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: ~21,000
Type: AU, Romance
Characters/Pairings: Phil Coulson/Clint Barton, Phil Coulson/Pepper Potts, past one-sided Peggy Carter/Steve Rogers
Warnings: (brief, non-graphic) mentions of past child abuse/neglect, deals with the break-up of a long-term relationship (no infidelity, though).
Summary: Phil's car is firetruck red, and she's his pride and joy. She deserves the very best of care, something Phil can't give her by himself -- he's the CFO of Stark Industries, not the experienced mechanic she needs. This is a project that needs outsourcing -- straight to Steve Rogers' garage and its preternaturally gifted restorer, Clint Barton.
Notes: Many thanks to laria_gwyn for her wonderfully thorough beta job and her invaluable help with dealing with the more sensitive aspects of this story.
