This is mostly for nefhiriel

, but if you've any interest at all in a really top-notch Steve Rogers and Thor friendship fic, which I kinda am (to me, those two have the same pure hearts beating within their breasts), this one is just .... *flails* I may have left one of the longest reviews in my life for this one and still didn't manage to convey to the author just how much her story moved me. It's rare for me to a) read a story late into the night because I just had to finish it
; and b) actually cry
. I did both with this one.Self From Self
Gen, h/c, friendship
Post-Avengers film, but pre-Cap2
Loki returns to Midgard to exact his vengeance on Thor, and in the heat of battle Steve makes the ultimate sacrifice. Now Thor must save the life of his captain while struggling to balance what he is with what he knows he needs.
(**OH... and Nef, remember your "SHIELD BROS/Sharing weapons" comment on Avengers Gen Round 7? This story. THIS STORY
She writes LOTR fic as well, one of the titles of which, "Perchance to Dream", tickles a faint familiarity in my brain, but I haven't read them yet (I don't think? Unless I started Perchance to Dream once and never finished?? Or maybe she's revising it and reposting it fresh... or maybe it's just that the title is a well-known Shakespearean phrase), so I'm keeping fingers crossed she handles Tolkien as well as she does Marvel.
