For September, we're going to be diving into Fan Fics for the first time as our focused Side Banana and we need your help!!

Jess and I need some good Fan Fic recommendations. Personally, I love anything with Good Omens and Stuck (Steve Rodgers x Bucky Barns), but we'd love to hear about some of your favorites.

Feel free to post any fandom fics you love or have written!

Hello, Markie and Jess! :)

"Good Omens" seems to be the new thing a number of fan fiction writers I follow are into. I can't help you there, but I've read a variety of fics in other fandoms.

I read a fair amount of Avengers fan fiction. Back in the 1980s and 1990s I read a lot of Marvel comic books, mainly X-Men and related, but some in other corners of that universe, so there are things I can appreciate about the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies as someone who gets some of the comic book references.

Much of what I read is slash. This is a Clint and Phil fic that is relatively family-friendly, and includes a surprise toddler: "Unexpected Doesn't Mean Unwanted" http://archiveofourown.org/works/930057

A fic that's a little different -- "Lovecraft in Brooklyn" http://download.archiveofourown.org/w... is an AU (Alternate Universe) fic that features Steve and Bucky and Steve's friends in an H.P. Lovecraft sort of world, but has a more hopeful and humorous tone than Lovecraft himself did.

I like some modern setting, "no powers" AUs. This one features Steve and Bucky in a "bakery AU": http://download.archiveofourown.org/w...

This one is another modern setting AU fic of Stucky and friends, mostly set in a mall: http://archiveofourown.org/works/2660693

And a college/university AU: https://archiveofourown.org/works/417...

This is the beginning of a series of humorous short fics with Clint and Phil, where Clint is still a superhero, but Phil is a civilian: http://archiveofourown.org/works/459384

Happy reading!
