Yuletide Fic Recs, Part 1: Comics-Related

Now onto the stories written for others! I just finished reading all the comics-related ones for the titles I am familiar with. Here are the ones I really felt stood out:

New York Girls (Blue Beetle)
**A Young Avengers crossover. BB's Brenda is definitely awesome (of a very awesome supporting cast), and pairing her with Kate Bishop is perfect. Warning: femslashy

If Only for Today (Ultimate Spider-Man)
**Peter and Jessica team-up = awesome!

For Love or Money (Spider-Man movieverse)
**I loved all the references throughout the story to other unnamed characters... and May vs. Jameson is classic.

Christmas Shopping with Mysterio (Spider-Man comicverse):
**May POV! May really is fantastic here, too.

Of Ice Storms and Rampaging Octopi (Spider-Man comicverse)
**It's nice to read some Peter/Gwen now and again. The story is set during the time he and Gwen were dating, with a little modern update or two. They were really sweet together, and this fic shows that, as well as MJ's ability to be an awesome friend.

ab initio (Spectacular Spider-Man tv)
**This one was so so much fun, wow! I love the way the author set it up, as an interview with Flash -- giving the story a very unique POV. Warning: Slightly slashy.

That Time in the Place with the Thing (New Avengers)
**This is brilliant! I suspect this author has a direct line to Bendis' head... I adored every part of it, from the beautifully set-up scripting, to the perfect dialogue and characterization. Fantastic!

Chasing Pavements (Daredevil)
**I loved the banter! Matt and Jessica are just awesome here.

If I'm planning to do a least 3-4 more of these, should I have a filter, f-list? Let me know.

BTW, agreeing with you re the Spidey/Cage one. How much I would give to see that one in print! So good.

Isn't it amazing? Can't wait to see who wrote that. :)

I think it'll be no, but I'll add you if that happens. :)

*giggles* so you'll read slash when it's Spidey, but not Bats, huh? I guess I'll have to start writing Spidey fics, then. ;)

(and, um, yes, this is the only Marvel icon I have)

*declines to comment*

LOL, actually, I'll read certain kinds of slash regardless of the fandom. And for Yuletide, I usually make an exception, anyway, though there were about a dozen comics stories I couldn't finish because of that.

But if it's A) played for humor, or B) surprise!slash -- I'll probably read and enjoy!

Oh, and you should have enough slots now to add a few more Marvel icons. *nods*

Dec. 26th, 2008 04:17 am (UTC)
LOL! I knooooooooow! I just couldn't find any icons I'd like enough... heh.

And don't mind me, anyway. I'm a bit drunk. :p

I loved the Flash and the Luke Cage fics, it's just wonderful to be given great fics like that :-)

Yay, Spider-Man recs! I'm about to go dive in over at yuletide. Don't filter me out, I enjoy your recs very much.

::Still stunned that you recced something slashy::

I don't think I will filter after all - I'll probably link the yuletide comm here later on.

And *shifty eyes* Yuletide is different! :D

Thanks! And there are other fandoms that I don't know (or stories I can't rec because I actually, um, wrote a couple? lol) -- so be sure to check out the others! :)
