'Hollow and Honeycomb' by antistar_e - Several years before Sam was born, a Supreme Court ruling decided that those who carried and visibly expressed a hereditary winged trait could not be mutilated, amputated, or otherwise altered without their consent, nor could they be discriminated against for housing, employment, etc. based on their possession of wings. Gen.
'DTRT' by Croik - Finch turns. He sees the barrel of a gun and his brain goes completely white. Reese's body crashes into his, broad and powerful and shoving him up against the glass of a storefront window. The gun fires and he can't breathe. Screams echo down the streets, almost drowning out Bear's vicious barking and a rush of fleeing footsteps. He can smell the gunshot residue, but then it's masked by Reese's breath close to his face as he asks, his voice an urgent rasp, "Are you hit?" Gen.
'Contingencies' by misachan - Clint knows it's only a matter of time. He can feel in in the back of his mind, lurking there like a cancer doctors couldn't quite get all of, a tiny pinprick of ice that he knows any moment can metastasize and overwhelm. He can't risk letting himself be compromised again. Gen.
'The Great Friendship Caper' by galaxysoup - after his number keeps coming up, Finch decides that what Leon Tao really needs is some positive influences. Unfortunately what he has to hand to implement this particular plan is John Reese. Gen.
'Herd Mentality' by rthstewart - another well-written story in this fandom's ongoing attempts to flesh out just what life would actually be like on a day-to-day basis in Narnia post-Pevensie. I'm particularly a fan of this writer's very sweary otters. Gen (with non-con warning).
'Though I Sang In My Chains Like the Sea' by lightgetsin - a fantastic Yuletide fic, set in the universe of Ben Aaronovitch's Rivers of London (which series is highly recommended!), where magic is real and there's a tiny section of the Metropolitan Police tasked with dealing with it. Gen.
'Culture and Other Balls of Twine' by LithiumDoll - in the aftermath of the attack on New York, Tony really doesn't want Bruce Banner anywhere but with him and decides the best thing for both of them will be a roadtrip. Gen.
'Tapdancing on Tightropes' by jumpfall - He doesn't want to revert to those ways, values his work improving lives rather than risking them, but he can't afford to get attached to the Avengers. Relationships are easy to fuck up – people's reactions aren't consistent, their feelings aren't predictable, and their wounds aren't correctible. He needs something fulfilling to last him for when this phase ends, too. Gen.
'Most Ghosts Are Idiots' by GoldenUsagi - on the lookout for suitable accommodation in London, John Watson finds himself renting an unexpectedly reasonably priced flat in Baker Street. The problem? There's already someone living there, if 'living' is the right word... Gen.
'The Nine Lives of Natasha Romanoff' by starrika - Natasha has many histories, some of them even hers, in this well-written story of how she came to be and how she ended up with SHIELD despite everything. Gen, though it's tagged as Clint/Natasha.
'Prudence and the Dragon' by Zen Cho - Because Prudence Ong never read newspapers or watched British TV, she maintained a spotlessly pure ignorance of the dragon throughout. She encountered the dragon in a rather more traditional setting. She met him down the pub. Gen.
'the soles of your shoes are all worn down' by isawet - an AU where Loki is a crime lord and Clint is a teenager the Avengers find when raiding one of his strongholds, who knows just enough to give evidence against Loki and more than enough to put his life at significant risk. Gen.
