Captain America (and Thor) gen recs and fanart request

May 26th, 2012 (09:05 am)

OK, y'all, here is the situation: 14-year-old girl, longtime friend of the family and of me, is totally into THE AVENGERS and *especially* into Captain America. She likes that he's polite, old-fashioned, and a butt-kicker, and she has apologetically confessed to even liking Cap's hair, which notion she was sure that I would find weird and incomprehensible. She finds Cap inspiring enough to try writing a couple of poems about him. She draws, and has asked me to choose a good picture of Captain America so she can try to draw from it, though she specifically requested that it not be a picture of Cap shirtless.

As you may be able to tell, she's at a point where there are vague stirrings but she is not particularly comfortable with sex. That's all fine. My problem is that she is a 14-year-old girl, and I am a grown-ass man, and Captain America fanfic (like AVENGERS fanfic in general) is full of porn. Even if she were into that, it would be horrifyingly inappropriate for me to send her recs of it (for reference: see again "*14-year-old girl*" and "*grown-ass man*"). The Pit of Voles doesn't stock porn, but the AVENGERS recs I've seen have all been of fic on LJ, DW, or AO3, and I don't have time to weed through the dross at FF.net to find good stories, so that doesn't work. (EDIT: I was considering bowdlerizing a few stories, but no, that really wouldn't work, either. I'm going through AO3 with character and content filters on ATM.)

So I would be very grateful if anyone could please pass on some gen or at least non-pornographic Captain America recs, fanart included.

Also, I'm not as close to her 16-year-old sister (oddly, given that the 16-year-old and I have *remarkably* similar personalities, we mainly communicate through the 14-year-old), but can report that she is into Thor, so if anybody has some extra for Thor that'd be well appreciated too.

You're welcome. There are a ton of G rated images to poke through. I set some aside to give you an idea of the variety. Happy hunting!

I wonder if you may want to point her to tumblr? I am still pretty unfamiliar with it, but it seems to offer any number of ways to play around with being a fan and making art, and being a pretty easy transition into fandom.
