So everythingismusical is a terrible, terrible enabler and also I promised her Darcy Lewis fic recs ages ago, so I’m finally keeping my promise. This one’s gonna be slightly different than my usual rec posts, as it’s focused on a character rather than a pairing.
Hope you like, girl. :)
My other rec posts can be found here.
- Sigyn (binding is not punishment) AO3 by Aria

A long time ago, when they were locked away, Loki promised they would escape at the end of the world. [Part 2 of the Darcy cycle]

The story of how Darcy Lewis accidentally helps found the Avengers while having an epic, failboaty romance with that dude she nailed in a bar two years ago.

- Spoiler Alert AO3 by starrika

Darcy’s got a secret admirer who’s sweet as pie, and they’ve been leaving her valentines.

In the box where it says, “If you do not have a significant other at the time of the biochemical event, to whom do you grant consent to have sex with you should circumstances require it?” Darcy writes, “Captain America.” Because that’s a thing that’s ever going to happen. [Warning: sexual content]
- Scavenger Hunting Is Extremely Likely Dangerous (S.H.I.E.L.D.) AO3 by amathela (Zhailei)

- find the time to find the words AO3 by ashcheche
There’s a snort, and Darcy can’t tell if it’s schadenfreude or laughter, but either way, pretty cool, because she made the Black Widow amused. Now she has to figure out how to do it without stripping her stomach lining. [Darcy/Natasha]
- Her Story, and Everyone Else’s AO3 by sithwitch13
In which Darcy Lewis works for SHIELD, dates Spider-man and his issues, is roommates with Jessica Jones and her issues, befriends the Avengers she hasn’t met yet, and generally manipulates the situation around her to better suit her expectations. Because that’s how she rolls. [Darcy/Peter Parker]

In which life as a SHIELD liaison isn’t a James Bond-esque fantasy, being an adult sucks, and friends are valued. [Darcy/Peter Parker; sequel to Her Story, and Everyone Else’s; WIP]
- Things That Shine AO3 by coffeebuddha

- Custom & Costume AO3 by websandwhiskers
