''[[https://archiveofourown.org/works/18518161 Take a Deep Breath - I've Got Your Back]]'' by ceterisparibus
* Recommanded by: dmcreif
* Status: WIP
* Synopsis: What if the characters worked more as a team during the back half of season 3? AU fic
* Comments: This started as a Tumblr prompt asking how Nadeem's questioning of Karen after the ''Bulletin'' attack would've gone had Matt been Karen's lawyer in that scene instead of Foggy, then quickly evolved into an AU as more users chimed in with how this brought up several more opportunities to fix plot points neglected in season 3 because of time[[note]]One example being Matt's prison visit. Many of the commenters made note of how the prison fight wasn't even mentioned at all afterwards with the exception of a single remark when Nadeem questioned Foggy in episode 5. Here, the fight has lasting repercussions, as Nadeem is persuaded to look into it to find evidence that Matt is innocent. The fact that Matt used Foggy's Bar ID to visit the prison leads to Foggy being put under investigation by the Bar Association, making it hard for him to campaign[[/note]] as well as character beats.[[note]]Karen first confides to Matt, not Foggy, about Ellison firing her for refusing to give up Daredevil's name, which makes more sense as it's Matt's secret she's refusing to give up[[/note]]

* Pairing: Matt / Karen
* Status: WIP
* Synopsis: Matt Murdock is back from the dead, and has just learned that his archnemesis Wilson Fisk is out of prison. Knowing he can't take Fisk on all by himself, he decides to team up with the one person he knows who is as dogged and determined as he is to put the man back in prison: Karen Page. As Matt and Karen rebuild the romance they once had, they must also fight a lengthy battle with a man who is determined to destroy their lives, their livelihoods, and their friendships. [[Fanfic/TheVigilanteTheReporterAndTheKingpin Trope page here]].
* Comments: An AU of season 3 in which Matt and Karen have a romance arc that lasts during their investigations of Fisk. But it goes much farther than that. The author brings a lot of new depth to a surprising number of the existing characters, while expanding the roles of underutilized characters and also fleshing out underdeveloped plot points from the third season, such as adding new layers to Fisk's criminal empire.

showdown, which is well deserved when Matt and Marci haven't had any scenes together.



* Comments: Part 1 of the ''Fanfic/TheMakingOfMonsters'' fanfics. ''The Price of War'' is an astonishingly well-plotted, evocatively written amazing epic of a read. It adds enormous depth to a surprisingly number of the characters, while introducing or tying in quite a few others, and manages to subvert a number of the rather shallow characterizations and stereotypes that some of the supporting cast on the show fell victim to. Well worth the time to read it!
