avengers: darcy approves

Recs: 2 MCU, 1 Daredevil, 2 Star Wars

MCU
Next New Message (1461 words) by fabrega - Clint Barton, gen
Clint's voicemails after the events of Cap 2. Hilarious!

daddy, watch your little black sheep run (10015 words) by paperclipbitch - Tony Stark/Hope Van Dyne
A lovely exploration of Tony and Hope's fraught relationship spanning from adolescence and across their adulthood. (Don't worry - it doesn't conflict with Tony/Pepper.) I haven't even seen Ant Man, and I still really enjoyed this story.

Daredevil
your grace is wasted in your faith (2681 words) by seren_ccd - Karen Page/Frank Castle
A deliciously sexy look at what draws Karen and Frank together. All three parts are excellent.

Star Wars
Keep Trying (905 words) by nymja - Luke, Kylo Ren/Ben Solo, Rey
The first story in a beautiful, now-complete series of vignettes spanning both Ben Solo and Kylo Ren's training with Luke, and the final confrontation between the three of them. The prose is achingly spare, and the central themes are so hopeful.

Prune for new growth (4541 words) by ineptshieldmaid - Rey, Finn, Poe, Luke, Chewie
Rey decides what to do with her hair. A fun but meaningful exploration of how hair relates to personal identity and expression.
Oh, wow! Thank you so much for the rec! I loved writing those fics so much. I don't quite know where it all came from.
HA! That Next New Message fic was hilarious! A much-needed laugh today. :) Thanks for the rec post! A short, funny piece like that was exactly what I needed. *reboots*
