Word Count: ~330,000
A peek behind the scenes of what really happens at Avenger’s Tower.
This series of stories currently consists of six: Some Things Shouldn’t Be a Chore; Ordinary Workplace Hazards, Or SHIELD and OSHA Aren’t on Speaking Terms; Four (or Five) Reasons for Kidnapping Tony Stark; Dating the Long Way Around; Things Unseen (That Are Captured on Film) and Hollow Your Bones Like a Bird’s. It is still considered a WIP, although all six of these stories are complete, and each can be read as a stand alone. The author just completed the fourth book this week which is why I am delving into it now. The series also has two other related works: Phil Coulson’s Case Files of the Toasterverse and Secrets of the Toasterverse.
Why You Should Read This:
Folks, this person can write. The dialogue is snappy, the descriptions of what’s going on is done in a way that draws you in instead of throwing you out of what you are reading, and the characters are delightful. Yes, it’s humor, but it’s done so well that you just don’t care. Every time I read scifigrl’s work, I go away feeling better about everything. Really, this is work your time.
