    Summary

    From the Avengers Case Files of Phil Coulson: Grocery shopping is necessary, Tony's a little too proud of his tech, Captain America's lost on the streets of New York, and sometimes social injustice just happens.

    Phil Coulson's the one who's got to write this nonsense up, and he is not their PR Manager.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    scifigrl47 has, single-handedly, redefined how I view Tony Stark and Steve Rogers. "Phil Coulson's Case Files of the Toasterverse" is the perfect example of wit, quirky ingenuity, and adorable friendship. This is a story that builds an entire world, and it's one that's easy to fall in love with. The "side" characters are delightful, the "main" characters are delightful, the *original characters* are delightful. The settings, the hijinks, and the spirit of the characters blend to create a treat to read.

    I read this to spoil myself on wacky hijinks and awkward affection. It holds a special place in my heart as the reason I started reading Marvel fiction.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    When I think of extraordinary fanfiction this piece comes to mind: it redefines the way my brain conceptualizes these characters, and in a way that I feel is respectful to their original concept--which is saying something, because I'm fundamentally against any "pairings" from "One Piece" because it tends to distract from the bonds of Nakama which are so important to the source material. That being said, I'm a sucker for argumentative couples, and couples that throw off yaoi stereotypes... For these reasons (and more), I'll give in and read Sanji/Zoro fic on occasion.

    This takes a somewhat worn-out trope and plays it like a fiddle. Expertly presented, the characters struggle, love, and fight hard enough to bring even the most stubborn reader along for the ride. The sexual tension is palpable, the angst is fair, the emotions are intense, the humor is sneaky, the violence is beautiful, and the entire story is well-written, paced, and complete.

    Needless to say, whenever I read modern AU for One Piece I find myself just wishing that I was re-reading "Memories."

    Bonus: Never has gripping the back of a couch been so hot.
    Bonus-Bonus: No, seriously, if you like underground fights and violence you shouldn't be reading my bookmark: you should be reading the story.

    Summary

    A moments silence hung heavy in the room before the four friends quietly came to the only course of action available to them. The only course of action that might save the village from a fate worse than another attack by Orochimaru and his legion of grumpy snakes… bored Jounin.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A beautiful little story which always--always--makes me laugh out loud no matter how many times I read it. At the very least, it gave me headcannon whiplash with the line, "Besides, the academy sensei was sure that Ibiki really did enjoy it when he snuck into the T&I department and turned [Ibiki's] office into a den of lava lamped, shag carpeted looove."

    Headcannon whiplash.

    Fun and quirky, this is one of those gems that I look up time and again for some enjoyable light reading with some of my favorite portrayals of these characters.
