Fic Title: Road to Nowhere
Author: Lise
Fandom: Thor
Universe: MCU
Main Characters and/or Pairings: Thor, Loki, Frigga, Hela
Length: 27,722 words
Brief summary of fic: When Loki shows up and asks for Thor's help, it's with unquestioning loyalty that Thor follows. Not even knowing what Loki has planned, Thor blindly follows him to Hel and back to rescue Frigga from death.

Reason for rec: Frigga's death was literally one of the most infuriating parts of the entire MCU for me. It felt so pointless and unnecessary, so anything that seeks to undo it stands a good chance at automatically being something I'll be into. But the fic is really about Thor and Loki having to trust one another again, in order to make it to their final destination; a difficult task when Loki is involved. He keeps everything close to his chest, and Thor doesn't help by not asking questions until it's too late. He's smart, but a bit thick at times, and quick to jump to conclusions. When they reach the final gate, Thor takes an absurd amount of time to work out what Loki means to happen, but it doesn't feel like it drags out. Instead, he's just too damn trusting for his own good. It has a very satisfying ending as well, with everyone getting what they want to a degree, even if things still aren't perfect.

Fic Title: The Joke
Author/Artist/etc: Imbecamiel
Fandom: Avengers
Universe: MCU
Main Characters and/or Pairings: Steve Rogers, Thor, Tony Stark, Natasha Romanov
Length: 7445 words
Brief summary of fic: Steve assumes that the whole "worthiness" thing with Mjolnir is just something everyone indulges Thor in out of some sense of politeness. Steve is wrong.

Reason for rec: This is primarily a character piece, and I love those. Steve goes through most of the fic assuming that they're all just supposed to pretend that nobody can lift Mjolnir. That doesn't stop him from picking up the hammer and moving it from time to time. The characterisation is lovely and subtle, which just brings the humour out even more. Thor's confused reaction to finding Mjolnir not where he left it is especially good, and the whole fic builds up to a very satisfying ending.
