53 seconds is all it took

to validate my belief that I don't want to watch Agents of SHIELD: that's the length of the previously-on for the season opener and it just made me want to yell "WRONG! WRONG!" and then flip my desk over.

(I wanted to see the flashback, of course. I have extremely grave doubts about the ability to make a satisfying Agent Carter series post-Cap 2, but, Peggy!)

. . . I suppose this post should have some actual content. *pokes at bookmarks* Here, have some fic I bookmarked to rec a long time ago and don't have time to re-read now.

Summary: Several years before Sam was born, a Supreme Court ruling decided that those who carried and visibly expressed a hereditary winged trait could not be mutilated, amputated, or otherwise altered without their consent, nor could they be discriminated against for housing, employment, etc. based on their possession of wings. // The world that Sam grows up in is one that remembers when it had been different. [Wing!fic AU.]

My note for this just says "Amazing." And it is.

Press (5932 words) by mardia

Fandom: Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences

Relationships: Steve Rogers/Sam Wilson
Characters: Sam Wilson, Steve Rogers
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Always a Different Sex, Rule 63, Press and Tabloids
Summary: “So thanks to this interview, everyone thinks we’re dating,” Sam says, her voice flat. She looks up from the front page of the New York Post. The cover is a paparazzi photo of her and Steve out at the Indian restaurant last night, sitting together cozily at their table with the headline “America’s Heroes...America’s New Power Couple?” // Tony glances over her shoulder as he walks past the couch, and says, scoffing, “That headline’s awful. They should’ve at least been able to make a pun out of Falcon.”

So, so cute.

Middletown: A Study of Suburban Life (91712 words) by M_Leigh

Rating: General Audiences

Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - High School, Bullying, Some slurs, bad parents and good parents, YOUTHS, teenagers doing dumb things teenagers do, spoilers for books you read in high school
Summary: In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering. // Or: the story of the year Bucky Barnes finally learned how to talk to at least one other human being, discovered J. D. Salinger, started to try in school (kind of), got a haircut, landed a punch, almost got arrested, and kissed a boy on the mouth.

The style of this is hilarious and carried me through what I recall to be some wheel-spinning in the plot, such as it is, and also my disbelief that Steve Rogers in any era would never have thrown a punch before he met Bucky Barnes, because, really?

There's more, but I don't have time to sort through the maybe-rec tag now.
