While I wait for the guests to arrive so we can EAT (I'm so hungry), I'm sorting through my bookmarks for some end-of-year fic recs.

The Most Adequate Christmas Ever by igrockspock (Avengers)
Tony/Pepper, Nat/Clint; humor; 3481 words
Summary: It's December twenty-third, and Tony has figured out absolutely nothing about Christmas.

Hide by [tumblr.com profile] smalltownethics
(AKA The 5 times Skye thinks of and/or almost meets Grant and the one time they meet face to face)
Summary: Hiding seemed to be something she did a lot.

The Devil’s in the Details by moodycactus
Fitz/Ward; AU: canon divergence; Explicit; 6039 words
Summary: This fic takes place after Ward’s escape, only he returns to collect Fitz. He claims he wants to ‘fix’ Fitz but can Fitz trust him? Fitz gets caught up in Ward’s plan and Ward gets more than he bargained for. Describe the fic without spoilers: Like an ep of “White Collar/Burn Notice” with a dash of the film “Shame”.

And a vid...

"My Lullaby" by Suzanne Pleshette
Zira - Garrett
Kovu - Ward
Nuka - Quinn
Vitani - Raina

(I never watched the second Lion King movie so I just googled the character of Kovu out of curiosity and man, the parallels are uncanny.)

A great constructed reality vid, based on the comic Blindspot. The clips from the many outside sources mesh seamlessly with the canon material.
Plot: Clint Barton suffers an injury to the head, and starts going blind. He hides it and tries to continue his life but when he is sent on a mission, he finds his older brother, Barney Barton, who is now on S.H.I.E.L.D.s hit list. He now has to choose between his family and S.H.I.E.L.D. all whilst losing his sight.

Maybe you will, maybe you won't (one day maybe you might) by [archiveofourown.org profile] SmilinStar
Simmons/Ward UST; future fic/mission fic/undercover; teen; 4453 words
Summary: She can feel his heart thumping away under her fingertips, remarkably steady, unaffected as she whispers, “I don't trust you.” “I know.”

And here's a particularly cool thing I've found on YouTube: Parkour meets cosplay!

Welcome to Level 7 (fanvid)

A kickass fanmade trailer for a kickass show. Much cooler than any of the official trailers, if you ask me.

Academy Award Winning Movie Trailer
Summary: Every Best Picture Nomination Ever.
Clever, funny and very meta. High production value too - it really looks like the real thing.

(Plus, one of the rare Youtube videos where the comments section is worth reading...)

The vidder uses monocromatic coloring to blend clips from various sources; the result looks very coherent and convincing.

The Impossible Man by [tumblr.com profile] ashesofbahrain
Gen; Ward & Coulson; character study; short
Once a week, every week, Grant Ward has a visitor. The visits are never at the same time each week, nor are the visits ever a predictable length. Two things always stay the same, though: the visitor is Coulson and he always asks the same question at the end.

I'm watching the Boulder World Cup finals in Innsbruck on Youtube, watching the second problem right now; really interesting. Some of those problems look downright nasty. (Until Adam Ondra comes along and makes them look easy somehow.)

Say Anything (Else) by [archiveofourown.org profile] enigma731
Natasha/Clint, Clint/Bobbi; complicated relationships/but no love triangle; teen; 5101 words
Summary: "I got married." Clint glances down at the ring on his hand, the exaggerated nonchalance of the movement telling Natasha that his surprise is feigned. He’s been waiting for her to ask. "Her name is Bobbi, and I'm pretty sure she's the smartest woman I've ever met."

“So you met her three weeks ago,” Natasha says slowly, trying to put the pieces together in her mind, “and you fell in love and you married her in that time, while also working a S.H.I.E.L.D. op?” She can’t quite keep the skepticism out of her voice.

In which Clint is a car crash, and Natasha learns what it means to be a supportive partner.

vid rec: SHIELD trailer vid that also includes Black Widow, Hawkeye and Fury. (The vid was made before the show started airing so it only uses footage from the trailer, but it looks pretty epic.)
