"What am I hearing?"
Trying not to freak out, but who are we kidding: Lev Grossman is helping our Equality FTW fundraiser by donating a deleted chapter from his recently released bestseller The Magician’s Land!
According to Lev:
This is a chapter from an early draft of The Magician’s Land in which Plum’s story plays out a bit differently from how it does in the finished version. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s about Plum’s senior project at Brakebills, which both succeeds and doesn’t. It’s not part of the continuity of the finished book, but I like it — it was hard to cut it. You could think of it as my alternate-universe Magicians fan fiction. It ends on a cliffhanger — sorry about that — but it’s got lots of sexy magic stuff in it.

The Avengers as a Western
Steve is the Sheriff. Clint is his deputy. Tony is the Blacksmith. Natasha runs the Saloon. Bruce is the physician with a split personality and Thor gets into a hell of a lot of tavern brawls.
Together, however, they manage to bring order to the once corrupt town of Triskelion.
Remember The Avengers as a 70s Cop Drama? A Western might be cooler.
Tumblr makes the best Avengers AU posts. And Mark Ruffalo always finds them.
