Word Count: 10,300
Summary: DCnU. Booster Gold is a gloryhound, an egomaniac, and probably a con artist. So when he says he and Ted used to be best friends, why does Ted want to believe him?

Recommendation: Booster could probably talk any Ted into just about anything, including being from a different dimension where they were besties, but it’s nice to see them develop a relationship beyond memories Ted doesn’t even have.

Summary: Teleported across dimensions, Booster Gold and Blue Beetle find themselves stranded on an alternate Earth. To get home again, they must go through this new world’s strongest villains.

Word Count: 2,500
Summary: So someone wanted something written to accompany this image by the super idiosyn of Ted doing his Bug mechanic thing, and after a certain amount of back and forth over whether topless welding is a good idea, this is what happened. Also, welding fans: I have taken the liberty of assuming Ted was just using a propane torch for oxy-fuel welding. Obviously not *arc* welding. That would be *crazy dangerous*.

Recommendation: Manscaping, wtf Guy.

Pairing: Michael Jon Carter/Ted Kord
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 2,450
Summary: In Booster’s 80s series there is a crack-tastic sequence when he fights the sometimes Flash villain known as THE RAINBOW RAIDER, a kind of Z-list forerunner of the technicolor Lantern corps. The Raider zaps Booster with some kind of light weapon, leaving him briefly devoid of pigment, and slightly less briefly blind. This is set in the short interval before Rip and Rip’s BFF Jack fix it and everyone sets determinedly about pretending it never happened.

Recommendation: This could have been silly, but it brings all the feels before moving on to the hotness.

Summary: There is another city inside the heart of Hub City, a city unseen. The city hides many secrets, but can Ted Kord hide his from the mysterious and handsome Booster Carter?

Recommendation: I thought this was an adorable AU, fleur_de_liz sketched a whole different world without making an anthropology tome, as well as a fantastic, ‘get to know you’ between Booster and Ted who are different but in all the important ways the same as their canon counterparts.

Author: anamatics

Pairing: Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 20,258
Summary: When Angie’s cousin gambles with money that wasn’t his to lose, he calls the only person he can think of to help him. Angie’s not exactly keen on doing it, but she did teach him to shoot pool, after all, she’s certainly better than his sorry ass. Only problem is, Angie’s not about to get her thumbs broken over some mobster’s money.

Recommendation: I need to take a moment and gush about the period details. Gah! Poor, wonderful Angie sent to one of those places to “fix her”. Her cousin sounds like a tool, but it reflects well on Angie that she’s still willing to go to bat for him despite that. I even love the little nod to Stucky, with Peggy admitting she might have ended up as a beard. It hurts my heart that Angie keeps calling herself broken, I know it probably was an oft-held feeling in that day but it still makes me sad. Now that I’ve gotten the sad out of the way, let’s move on to how badass both Angie and Peggy are. Like wow. And to top all that off, really awesome illustrations!
