This year's bang is now closed. We want to thank everyone who participated and encourage everyone to enjoy the amazing works that have been produced. Don't forget to leave feedback for the hard working authors and artists!

All of the stories and art will eventually be added to our pinboard account, but it may take a while. There will be a post when everything is updated.

We hope to see you all again next year!

Summary: The Sokovia Accords were sold to the public as a check on the Avengers, intended to protect the autonomy of every nation. The real goal of the accords was to ensure the registration of every enhanced individual everywhere in the world, regardless of age, occupation, or country of origin, and using a very flexible definition of enhanced. So, when Steve Rogers broke the Avengers out of the Raft, Secretary Ross and UN forces sought to strike back at their families… only it didn’t quite go as planned. The proponents of the Accords really should have known not to mess with Black Widow. They really should have known not to go after Laura Barton: or how Laura Barton and Natasha Romanoff escaped the clutches of a UN Task Force and went on the most unconventional road trip to find their way home.

Author name: 100indecisions on AO3
Beta name: lizardbeth_j on LJ, lizardbeth on AO3

Summary: Gamora is there when Loki falls into Thanos’ hands, and she’s there to watch Loki break under torture. She’s not going to defy her father (yet), but in the beginning, she gives Loki a little advice: find a core truth about yourself and bury it deep, and once Thanos has broken and remade you into what he wants, something of you might still be left.
Additional notes: I'm posting this in its entirety on LJ and then reposting about a chapter a week (with some additional content, although the story here is complete) on AO3. If you like this, please consider subscribing to me there!

Summary: AKA Super Supper

The Young Avengers don't know what their future holds for them - but that's okay. They have their families, and they have each other. Together, they can face down anything the world tries to throw at them - just not on an empty stomach.

This is half "sequel" to Children's Crusade, half "extremely extended epilogue".

My apologies to the comm and the mods for posting so late. I had some workplace problems, and wasn't able to come home long enough to format and post the story on time.

Or, Five times Tony Stark did not sleep with Natasha Romanoff, and one time he did.

Series: sharp Evening stars and bright Morning flame
Author name: tielan
Beta name: geckoholic
Characters/Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Bucky Barnes, Maria Hill/Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers/Maria Hill, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers.
Fandom/Universe: MCU
Rating: NC-17
Word count: 10621
Warnings: Choose Not To Warn
A sedoretu is a four-person marriage, an intricate mesh of six dynamics - sexual and non-sexual - between Morning man, Evening woman, Morning woman, and Evening Man, a bond of delicate trust.

When Steve Rogers makes Bucky Barnes a promise at age sixteen, he doesn't know that he'll be keeping it at age ninety-six.

When Bucky Barnes meets Natasha Romanoff in the course of their work at the KGB, he won't remember her for another seven years.

When Natasha Romanoff encounters Maria Hill in SHIELD, she isn't thinking of desire or fondness, only of trust - and that it's the first time she's been allowed the choice.

When Maria Hill lets Steve Rogers climb into her bed, she can't imagine the fall - but love is more than sex and emotions, a hard and sometimes lonely road to walk.

When a sedoretu consists of Captain America, the former Deputy Director of SHIELD, the Black Widow, and the Winter Soldier, things are bound to get downright complicated...
Notes: I started this series with the intent of writing eight short-ish stories, and then discovered it was actually going to be one prologue, six stories, and one EPIC FINALE. I’d written the prologue and the first of the six stories when the Marvel Bang came up, and wrote the remaining five of the six stories as my challenge.

The Day Marriage: a bit of magic waiting somewhere [Maria/Natasha]
Sacrilege: what is dead is sacred [Steve & Natasha]
The Evening Marriage: something attempted, something done [Maria/Steve]
The Night Marriage: sing thee to thy rest [Bucky/Steve]
Blasphemy: united with holy purpose [Maria & Bucky]

The stories are reasonably stand-alone, although they form a greater storyline in the series, and the final story will be posted later this year.

Thanks so much to the mods for running this and giving me the opportunity to plough my way through the stories, and to my two lovely fanworkers who produced art for this story!

Title: Secret Identities
Author name: catalenamara
Beta names: muriel_perun and tenaya
Characters/Pairing: Thor/Loki
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 50,500
Warnings: Memories and fantasies of dubcon are a part of this story but all sex scenes depicted are consensual.

Summary: It’s a long and twisting road that leads to redemption, whether it’s Thor’s path back from his murderous attack on Jotunheim, or Loki’s descent into emotional darkness when his treachery backfired and he learned his true identity. He struggles between his love for and his hatred of his brother - which path will he take?
Canon divergence from the point where Odin falls into the Odinsleep. Odin’s punishment for Thor’s arrogance: Banish him to earth. Make him mortal. Take his memories from him and give him the identity of a mortal, a mortal, moreover, with a disability. Because three days as a mortal isn’t enough to overcome the habits of a lifetime.
In Asgard, Loki, badly shaken by the revelation of his Jötunn heritage, has still been able to settle into his new role as viceroy for Queen Regent Frigga while Odin remains in the Odinsleep. At first gleeful about Thor’s banishment to earth and his powerful position as the de facto ruler of Asgard, he starts visiting Thor, who is now the mortal Donald Blake, at various stages in his life to gloat at his misfortune and take revenge. But what’s the point when Thor has no idea who he is?
Despite himself, Loki’s emotions turn into longing for what they had once, which turn into fear and determination as he realizes he has to somehow break Odin’s spell, restore Thor’s memories, and bring Thor home before Thor meets a mortal death. And there’s also the matter of the pending war with Jotunheim…
Inspired by 1960s era comic book canon and set between the years 1947-1980. Donald Blake’s and Thor’s first appearance was in “Journey Into Mystery” # 83, August 1962. I synced this story with that timeline as I needed the stretch of 30+ “Midgardian years” to tell this story.
