The review for Some Things Shouldn't Be A Chore, on the Avengers fic rec page, reads:

* ''Pairings:'' Steve/Tony, but mostly slow burning pre-slash for most of it. Clint/Coulson, too, which is much more explicit.
* ''Synopsis:'' Tony builds himself friends, and gets assigned a family. It's so much more than that, really, but there's no way to explain it any further without giving away too much.
* ''Comments:'' It's the single most hilarious, touching, and well-written fanfic this troper has ever read. If it gets any better it may qualify for better than cannon status, and considering the movie it's based on, that's a real honor. Seriously, if you love the Avengers you will love this fic."
and that doesn't just apply to the one story.
This 'verse is reknowned for it's humour, emotion, and strong original characters.
