And the archive is open!

My assignment was for [archiveofourown.org profile] Persephones_Keeper | [profile] crossing_hades

title: Reasons Of Presence
summary: The traditions of Wakanda are heavy, and in these changing times, T’Challa is always and constantly aware that if the armour of the Black Panther weighs down upon his shoulders, it will be that much heavier with the weight of crown and kingdom added to it.
tags: T'Challa and Okoye, T'Challa & Maria Hill
rating: G
notes: This was not strictly the request, but I thought a little delving into T'Challa's history and how Wakanda decided to return to the world as more than merely a shadow power would be an interesting diversion. There was, initially, meant to be more.

My gift was by [archiveofourown.org profile] Dazzledfirestar:

title: Comfort
summary: The real fall out would come later. For now, Helen needs a friend and a good meal.
tags: Helen Cho, Maria Hill, friendship, food
rating: G

It's a wonderful little post-Age-of-Ultron glimpse into the professional relationship of the two women and how it verges on the personal.

My recommendations so far:

title: On Your Left
author: [archiveofourown.org profile] ladydeathfaerie
summary: Two tours of duty as a pararescue have left their scars on Sam Wilson. In order to live and function with his emotional wounds, Sam's developed a simple coping method. After a particularly bad night, Sam resorts to said method to clear his mind. Imagine his surprise when it results in new friends and, ultimately, a new purpose in life.
tags: Sam Wilson, Riley, Nightmares PTSD
rating: PG-13
why: A little pre-Winter Soldier look into Sam and his coping mechanisms, what happened with Riley, and Sam's internal monologues.

title: A Waltz In The Woods With My Brother
author: [archiveofourown.org profile] kyburg
summary: When you have no loyalty shown you, what makes you wager everything on gaining it from those who would imprison you?
tags: Hogun, Jim Morita, World War II, Taking Liberties With History And Canon
rating: PG-13
why: This is a very unusual story, not two characters that you'd think to put together at all, and I'm not sure if the backstory they've used for Hogun came from the comics, or if they made it up. But I liked the look into Jim's mindset (although, I believe he said he was from California?) as well as Odin's evident trust in Hogun.

title: Play On
author: [archiveofourown.org profile] Dazzledfirestar
summary: Sam has a rough night, but he's got some help on hand.
tags: Sam Wilson, PTSD, Bucky Barnes, Bucky Barnes/Sam Wilon
rating: G
why: Because I like the idea of Bucky making Sam a cup of tea at oh-whatever-hours to settle not only Sam's memories but his own...

There are others I like the look of, but these are the underappreicated ones - more gen than slash/ship and about characters who don't get a lot of love. There's at least one story with Raina, several with T'Challa, quite a few with Sam, and one Sam/Rhodey that I think I do gotta take a closer look at.

Go forth and read!
