Thursday recs: A few fics in different fandoms

Slipping in under the wire here with a few things I've read lately that I liked! And also, [profile] scioscribe wrote my glorious Just Married gift fic and it is still excellent.

Heavy is the Head by [archiveofourown.org profile] glorious_spoon (Agent Carter, 2500 words)
Season 1-era Dooley POV on the trio. Really fun.

Blue Square by [archiveofourown.org profile] primeideal (Stranger Things, 1K words, Steve & Robin)
This was written in a tag-based exchange for the tag "Two Characters Who Don't Like Each Other Grudgingly Share A Ski Lift", and it delivers gloriously on that premise, as well as nailing the show's fun weirdness.

don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo by [archiveofourown.org profile] firstaudrina (Stranger Things, 1300 wds)
Post-S3 Max & El friendship. Really sweet.

Hallway Light by [archiveofourown.org profile] snickfic (Captain Marvel, 1100 wds)
Pre-movie Carol & Yon-Rogg backstory, with a great glimpse of Hala and a perfect balance of genuine camaraderie and underlying creepiness.

I can't see any reason not to turn these posts into an open reccing thread, so tell me about anything you've found lately that's good!

For my own info as well as others' ...

I put myself in for Merry Belated Treatmas, in which you link to your requests for past exchanges in case anyone wants to write you treats. <3 I picked this year's Chocolate Box letter and HurtComfortEx letter; those seemed like good ones. Like with Fandom Stocking and Fandom Giftbox, there's no reciprocal requirement to write anything; there's also no guarantee you'll receive anything.

Things I am considering signing up for:

- Netflix Originals Exchange - taking both nominations & signups 'til Aug. 31.

- Multifandom Tropefest, taking nominations 'til the 24th; signups open on the 28th.

- Jump Scare Exchange, a Halloween flash exchange in early September.
