Fic Title: Hogwarts: Hogwarts: A (Marvelous) History, or: Thor and Loki's Excellent Adventure
Author/Artist/etc: altilis
Fandom: Thor, Harry Potter
Universe: MCU/Comics
Main Characters and/or Pairings: Loki, Thor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff, Angrboða
Length: 15,580
Brief summary of fic: Thor and Loki are sent down to Midgard to blow off some steam. While there, they have a hand in founding a school for witchcraft and wizardry.

Reason for rec: This is such a great fic. Thor and Loki take the place of Godric Gryffindor and Salazar Slytherin respectively, and thus have a hand in shaping how the individual houses gain their reputation. This is so far pre-canon that Loki's just kind of a surly bastard and not actually evil and broken yet. His reasons for wanting the school to only teach pureblood students takes on a rather different shade in this, geared toward safety and secrecy more than status and class. Loki wants to teach the students how to defend themselves using any means necessary, but winds up being shot down by the other founders. Meanwhile, Thor just kind of trundles along, having fun with the whole thing and not really noticing that Loki's displeased until it's too late, in typical form.

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.
