The Notables (Master List)
First established 22nd October, 2005
Last updated: 28th March, 2014
Warning: Most of these notables are NOT worksafe!

This lists some notable reads and those that have a * make quite a sizzle.

If you're too young or too closed-minded about some of the things you read here, please feel free to leave. If you've got other rec's that are different from what I've got (but are on par in quality, length, and so on) feel free to leave comments. I usually like longer, angstier works, but I'm always interested in a good read ;)

"Coulson had once made the observation that Darcy Lewis’ ability to beg, bribe, or bully people into her plans was almost a superpower in and of itself. Considering she was walking down a tattered Tribeca street with four women she either barely knew or didn’t socialise with for drinks on a Friday night, Maria could well believe it." The sequel has really awesome action sequences.

Gone for Soldiers series by [archiveofourown.org profile] Polexia_Aphrodite (Natasha/Steve, Natasha/James, Natasha/Steve/James)

"War is the child's emptiness, the surrender of identity, the transformation into a simple system: purpose goes in, action comes out. (Natalia Alianovna Romanova, and everything that she became.)"

masks that the monsters wear, the by [archiveofourown.org profile] beardsley (Natasha/various; dark AU, please read warnings)
"Natasha joins SHIELD. Four years later, the Winter Soldier starts targeting the Avengers. But the real story starts in 1935, in Stalingrad. Or maybe 1950, when the Red Room sends her on her first mission. Or maybe 1959, when Natasha meets the Winter Soldier. Or maybe..."

On Tilt by [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_rhian (Pepper/Natasha)

One Day by [personal profile] tamoline (Natasha/Maya)
"Natasha is tasked with finding Maya Hansen."

Only Soldier Now Is Me, The by [archiveofourown.org profile] samalander (Natasha/Clint) (kudos to [pinboard.in profile] cyprinella)

Shed my skin series by [archiveofourown.org profile] singmyheart (Natasha/Steve)
"He feels wrong-footed; the way you do when you’ve spent a night away from home and wake up in an unfamiliar bed, like he has to take a second to remember where he is. It’s not an entirely unpleasant feeling."

Something Different by [archiveofourown.org profile] tsukinofaerii (Pepper/Natasha, Pepper/Tony)
"Roughly a year after the events at the Stark Expo, Pepper's "stable-ish" relationship with Tony has deteriorated into more —ish than stable. Tony has been keeping secrets, and he's brought home a mystery blond who occupies all his time—including the time he should have been using for work. While holding things together, Pepper finds herself getting much, much closer to Natalie. But Natalie may be hiding a few secrets of her own."

Thirty Two Flavors (and then some) by [tumblr.com profile] gyzym (Antonia/Pepper, genderswap)

this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name by [archiveofourown.org profile] cinaed (Natasha Romanov/James "Bucky" Barnes)
"Some of Natasha’s memories are true, some are false, but throughout all of them runs one thread of remembrance: a cool metal hand gentle upon her back, tender against her cheek, tight around her throat; an assassin with a crooked smile and eyes like winter."

undercover in our overcoats by [archiveofourown.org profile] Dayadhvam ([livejournal.com profile] dayadhvam_triad)(Peggy/Natasha)

You and I by [archiveofourown.org profile] sinuous_curve (Jess/Jules friendship)

Bitch Slap
Vegetables Are Not Enough by [livejournal.com profile] demoka (Mother Superior/Sister Batrill)
"Vegetables were no longer enough, nor was it prudent to continue using them. Cook had begun carefully stock taking and comparing the receipts of each week's groceries for the convent. It was probably also best to not volunteer for grocery duty too often. Cook might link two and two together. Well, if Cook didn't, Mother Superior certainly would."

Calvin and Hobbes
Theories About Nuclear Winter by [livejournal.com profile] hollycomb (Calvin/Susie) (kudos to [personal profile] essbeejay)
"When Calvin finally sorts out his feelings for Susie his timing is not great." The writing is just made of awesome; it incorporates various comic fantasy elements of the original comic and then infuses it with a really interesting multi-layered storyline about expectations, coming of age rituals, and interpersonal relationships. The spot-on characterizations really pop out at you and they really made me want to see more.

Honesty, Away, Primary (PDF), Cold (PDF) by [livejournal.com profile] seven_3_oh (Cara/Kahlan; warning: BDSM)
"Richard and crew decide to celebrate a victory over the Sisters of the Light with a good tavern meal, but Cara has other ideas about celebrating. Kahlan doesn't think it's healthy." [livejournal.com profile] seven_3_oh manages to combine book lore and TV cannon to forge a realistic chance for Kahlan to see how Cara cares for her. This is a mutual, slow and steady build-up where the author doesn't rely on cheap plot devices like a potion or some spell to create that opportunity. What's admirable is that most of the main characters in this series stay true to their characters until about halfway through "Primary;" from then on, Richard and Zedd might be considered OOC as the author pushes cannon aside in the quest to push Kahlan and Cara together. This series bears a surprisingly intricate plot and some nice action. This series even stays true to the TV series in the sense that you still see the humanity that underlies the actions of the various characters. That humanity has a tinge of darkness, but you will recognize it all the same.
