I think my most major recent read has been a piece of Downton Abbey/Avengers crossover fic in which Thomas Barrow is transported to modern times and becomes Tony Stark's butler. Which is one of those things that seems ridiculous at first glance but the author completely sells it to you, and 87k later you're entirely on board.
(I've barely watched Downton! I really don't care much for Thomas! *hands*)

In which Tony Stark ditches a boring party, makes an addition to the household staff, throws a much better party, and tries not to sexually harass his new butler.
Or,In which Thomas Barrow has a little trouble getting home from the pub, is generally unimpressed with many aspects of the 21st century, never thought of himself as a conservative dresser before, and may or may not be falling in lust with his new employer.
tl:dr: Thanks to time travel, Thomas Barrow becomes the Avengers' butler.
I enjoyed this immensely, I really did. Well worth the read if you've got a hankering to sit down with a long fic where a very deadpan butler is entirely unimpressed with the 21st century.
What I'm Reading
Trying very hard to actually finish some of the many books on my to-read list. Currently about a third of the way through Rosemary Kirstein's The Steerswoman, which is lovely. Lots of excellent female characters, road tripping, and a lot of great stuff on exploration and study and the scientific method.
What I'll Read Next
I have a mighty need to get hold of the new Black Widow and Ms. Marvel comics runs. \o/
