Recs and Reviews

holy hell guys we’ve got a new winner for best MCU Steve/Tony fic. ok reblogging this when it’s not 4am and I’m about to pass out. Because if you like S/T at all, you need to read this fic.

If you like a well-written Natasha, Thor or Rhodey in your S/T fic, you need to read this fic. Like my only complaint is there’s not enough of them in the story- especially Rhodey because omg the author’s take on their friendship is so adorable and I want 47,000+ words of just that. But I also love the author’s take on Tony and Natasha’s friendship too. And omg it’s like someone has finally gotten movie Thor right. \o/

The plot is beyond great because it takes a situation that has happened in the comics several times, makes it even more personal and emotionally gut-wrenching, but not only that- it actually goes into the fallout from that situation, not just with the Avengers themselves but the public’s reaction to it in a way that the comics usually gloss over.

AND THE SEX! Really intense and emotional and really fucking hot.

tl;dr READ THIS FIC! \o/[1]
