Honestly, I'm a little shocked. I got two Maria Hill fics! TWO OF THEM.

*stares at them like they're cute little Mogwai that someone is about to feed after midnight*

A Little Thing You Better Not Forget (1896 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe, The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Captain America (Movies)
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Peggy Carter & Maria Hill, Jane Foster & Maria Hill, Maria Hill & Pepper Potts
Characters: Maria Hill, Peggy Carter, Jane Foster (Marvel), Pepper Potts
Additional Tags: Female Friendship, Marvel Ladies Getting Shit Done
Summary:

Four women, one cause, and in the end they might just save the world.



My note: The best thing about this fic? Is that the women aren't girly for the sake of being girly; they're in-character, female and feminine, while being practical, frank, and a little bit wry/sarcastic. (The end exchange between Maria and Jane, where Jane modifies her answer? I love that. Because Jane so would! And I want the rest of that story where we see just what Maria and Jane went looking for...)

As per usual, I want MOAR FIC in these narratives... (Fic that I don't have to write myself, mind you.)

Off-hand, if anyone is inclined to Remix Madness, I've signed up here with anything and everything that isn't a remix of something else (it's always marked with 'remix' in the title).

The [community profile] genex stories don't seem to be doing too well on the hits-and-kudos front right now, so I thought I'd start at the backend and work my way up to the front, in reverse of the usual procedure.

But there are some good stories in there - beautifully written, well-characterised, enjoyable stories for canons which I know but don't usually participate in.

Conversation on a Summer Morning (1050 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: The Lord of the Rings - J. R. R. Tolkien
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Faramir & Gilraen
Characters: Faramir (Son of Denethor II), Gilraen (Tolkien)
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
Summary:

The morning after Aragorn's coronation, Faramir has a chance encounter with someone he did not expect.

My note: A sweet little encounter, speaking of families and honour and relationships and connections.


When the Wheels Come Off (1519 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Peter Parker, Tony Stark
Additional Tags: Angst, Teen Angst, Missing Scene, Guilt
Summary:

Misusing the suit had consequences. Both Peter and Tony reflect on whether they were warranted.

My note: I'd actually call this 'fathers and sons'. Some good parallels, although I don't know if they were drawn in the movie or if the author made them independently.


Ensemble Piece (1378 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Marvel Cinematic Universe

Characters: Natasha Romanov (Marvel), Clint Barton, Nick Fury

My note: Home is where they bring you blue bunnies and icecream.


We Could Go to Mexico (3281 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Gone With the Wind - Margaret Mitchell, Gone With the Wind - All Media Types
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Scarlett O'Hara & Melanie Wilkes
Characters: Scarlett O'Hara, Melanie Wilkes
Additional Tags: Gen Work, Female Friendship, POV Female Character, Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
Summary:

Scarlett is carrying the load at Tara, but she isn’t alone.

My note: I haven't read Gone With The Wind in decades, but this fic captures the hardships and pain of both Scarlett and Melanie as they stay at Tara, trying to make life for themselves.
