I just came back from watching Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which opened yesterday. Went into it with medium expectations and was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. :) Go watch! :D

A Song of Ice and Fire / Game of Thrones
Pride and Pack by [archiveofourown.org profile] ghostrelic (Sansa Stark / Tywin Lannister AU, kudos to [archiveofourown.org profile] telanu)
"Tywin Lannister marries Sansa Stark himself, instead of giving her to Tyrion."

I was pleasantly surprised at the twists and turns this story had. The story structurally felt a little familiar (Snape/Hermione?, Lucius/Hermione?) and I was troubled by several of the sections--please read the trigger warnings as it does mention torture among other things--but it was a gripping read. For those who are new to this genre it's easier to take in if you've finished watching season 2 or later.

Avengers (No Winter Soldier spoilers)
A Widow's Tale by [archiveofourown.org profile] mhalachai (Stargate Atlantis x-over, AU)
This series starts with Steve revisiting Natasha's deep cover past as a Russian spy during the cold war, and deals with its consequences.

A very nice interweaving of the two different fandoms.

Give A Girl A Moment And She'll Take You For All You've Got and the sequel The Right Hand Knows Not by [archiveofourown.org profile] tielan
"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.

Speaking in Foreign Tongues by [archiveofourown.org profile] Rainne (Natasha/Kate Beckett, Castle x-over)
“Sometimes when I am bored, I go to Glechik Café in Little Odessa and pretend to be Muscovite.”

Interesting narrative.

Tomb Raider
Primer: Tetraninja's Tomb Raider Let's Play playlist for eneri and others who's never seen the awesome epic storyline for Yamatai. XD

Gathering Storms by [archiveofourown.org profile] zerrat (Lara Croft/Sam Nishimura)
"In the aftermath of Yamatai, Sam struggles to return to her normal life. Her emotions spinning wildly out of control, Sam finds herself unravelling as the fragments of Himiko's soul within her begin to consume everything that she is."

A nicely written action/adventure that follows the ending sequence of Tomb Raider.
