Title: Some Assembly Required
Author: valtyr
Betas: dieewigenacht, truthiness_aura and cursor_mundi
Fandom: Marvel Adventures
Pairing: Steve Rogers/Tony Stark
Rating: NC-17
Wordcount: 58k
Contents/Warnings/Spoilers: Very general spoilers for MA:IM Armour Wars. Issues of consent involving not being fully informed about the person you're sleeping with, sex swap. A joke lifted from XKCD, which is footnoted at the end.
Summary: Tony Stark is trying to set up a new superhero team when he's given a sex change, courtesy of Victor von Doom. He copes with that about as well as you'd expect.
Notes: Marvel Adventures: Iron Man and Marvel Adventures: Avengers are supposed to be different continuities. This fic is an attempt to reconcile them; it's set after Marvel Adventures: Iron Man: Armour Wars and before Marvel Adventures: Avengers. Thanks to [personal profile] bee for early advice on the structure. Thanks to tsukinofaerii for help making the cover!

Fic: O'er the Dark-Green Sea
and i have all your powers
poisonivory
Title: O'er the Dark-Green Sea
Author: poisonivory
Artist: ajremix
Fandom: DC Comics (Green Lantern and Green Arrow, mostly)
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Kyle Rayner, Connor Hawke, Oliver Queen, Jennie-Lynn Hayden, Hal Jordan, and pretty much all the other (Earth) Lanterns and Arrows. Kyle/Connor, Kyle/Jen.
Rating: PG-13
Warning(s): Violence, mid-19th-century attitudes (ETA: white, Anglo-American mid-19th-century attitudes) towards race.

Summary: On his first mission as a captain in Her Majesty's Royal Navy, Kyle Rayner finds himself aboard the pirate ship Green Arrow, prisoner of the dreaded Captain Queen. As Captain Gardner, Commodore Jordan, and Kyle's fiancee Jenny launch rescue missions, Kyle finds himself struggling with a growing attraction to Queen's son Connor. But is the Green Arrow really what it seems? What does Sinestro the pirate king want with Kyle? And does Kyle really hold the secret to the green light that can give its bearer the power to rule - or destroy - the world?

Notes: The Opium Wars, when China sought to restrict British opium trafficking, occurred in 1839-1842 and 1856-1860. This fic takes place in 1857, during the second Opium War (also known as the Arrow War, which Ollie would like to take credit for). That was considerably later than the glory days of pirates, but hey, there's also magic in this story. I took some liberties. The fic also contains attitudes and terminology that are relics of the time period and thus not politically correct; the views expressed therein are not necessarily my own.

Acknowledgments: Endless thanks to my lovely betas, allreb, mizzmarvel, and second_batgirl; to second_batgirl for being the greatest co-mod ever; to harriet_vane for suggesting the setting; to ajremix for her absolutely freaking incredible art that makes me cry with happiness; and to pretty much everyone I know for general hand-holding, support, and incredible patience as I wrestled with this monster from the deep.

Fic: History Repeating

wabbitseason
Title: History Repeating
Author: wabbitseason
Fandom: Marvel-616 AU
Character(s): James Buchanan Barnes; Natasha Romanoff; Steve Rogers; Nick Fury; Ivan Petrovich; Yelena Belova; Clint Barton; Bobbi Morse
Pairing(s): Bucky/Natasha; Steve/Sharon; Clint/Bobbi
Words: 10,642 words
Rating: PG
Warning(s): None
Summary: Competitive figure skaters Natasha Romanoff and James Buchanan Barnes were in love once. Over and over, their worlds intersected, but now they're offered a chance a future together. Are they stronger as a team?

Notes: Figure skating has always been my other big fandom, so this is an unique opportunity for my worlds to coexist. Yes, it's an AU as far as comics are concerned, but I've tried to ground things as much as possible with the technical and competitive details. Canon wise, I was definitely inspired by characters' comics history. There are quite a few Marvel oriented Easter Eggs throughout the fic.

Big thank yous to merfilly and harmonyangel for betaing and comments and second_batgirl for much hand-holding when I was ready to give up.

Rating: Adult
Word count: 37,000+
Fandom/Genre/Characters: DCU | Batfamily AU | Dick Grayson, Tim Drake, Barbara Gordon, Bruce Wayne
Summary: In a universe where Bruce Wayne is willing to kill, the Graysons never fall. His family alive, Dick Grayson stays with the circus. He's happy. Tim Drake grows up in Gotham while his parents travel the globe. He has tutors and a lot of money and a camera. He's not happy, but he's almost okay with that because he has Dick. Even if Dick doesn't know it.
Notes: I borrowed from both the DC comics and animated continuities for this story. The result is an amalgam of two canons plus whatever my imagination decided to spit out. No warnings or major triggers.
Acknowledgments: Endless thanks to quakey, who is my God Queen Editor for many excellent reasons, and a tip of the hat to __marcelo, whose Otherside AU partly inspired this fic; his brain is a scary, awesome place, and I wouldn't half mind living there. To melancholise, whose gorgeous artwork perfectly captures the feel of the story I was trying to tell, a thousand blown kisses, because thanks aren't enough. Her art is embedded in the story, but please go tell her how amazing she is.

Fic: Adventures in Solitude
oneangrykate
Title: Adventures in Solitude
Author Kate/Riseupwithfists
Fandom: DC Comics
Character(s)/Pairing(s): Jaime Reyes, Tim Drake, Bart Allen, various Titans, various Batpeople and various Reyes.
Rating: NC-17/Adult
Warnings: Underage sex, underage drinking, harsh language, NSFW macro images.
Summary: Due to the glorious return of Superboy and Kid Flash, the Teen Titans play musical chairs with the team roster (again) and Jaime's frankly pretty surprised that he's still included. What's even more surprising is that the team has suddenly become part robot-fighting flash mob, part social club, and part PTSD support group. To further complicate matters, an aimless and very unemployed Tim Drake shows up at the Tower. And doesn't leave. It's all very confusing, but Jaime finds that he's down with it. For the most part, anyway.

Meanwhile, being a Titan means never having to say you're sorry, a very special social networking website is formed, and the Committee to Oust Damian Wayne wants YOU.

Notes: A million thanks to Gloss, for being endlessly encouraging, Mona, for reading a draft that read like Swiss cheese and still being able to give gleeful, insightful, and enthusiastic feedback, and Jube, who was my personal cheerleader, hand-holder, and provider of several of the more out-there plot twists. This one's for y'all.
