Merlin

Footloose - Loaded March
INSTANT REC!!! This is a must read for anyone in Merlin fandom. I'm glad I waited until the series finished because once I started reading I couldn't stop. I loved the military aspects, the character voices, the plot, the scope and ambition of the story isn't something you find every day.

(f5,recs-instant!rec,recs-Merlin,Pairing:Merlin/Arthur,Trope:Magic,Length:900k-3million)


Avengers

jadedace - Eihwaz
Summary: After the battle of New York, Loki was sentenced to be executed by an Aesir trial. What the god didn't expect was to wake up the morning after his private beheading in the body of a recent adversary, on a realm he had only just left...with the other person still very much alive and kicking inside. Tony is not too happy about his new headmate, and Loki is hardly thrilled over his new living arrangements. But with a new threat from the Mad Titan on Midgard's horizon, it's up to the two of them to keep the Tesseract out of hands that mean to misuse it's power.

Review: I loved the concept, character voices, and seeing Tony and Loki work together.
