Fire and Water for Your Love - Chapter 1 - dragongirlG - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When the Avengers investigate an abandoned HYDRA base on behalf of S.H.I.E.L.D., they unexpectedly encounter a dark-haired man with a torn metal arm, who leads them to an even more shocking discovery deeper inside the base. The Avengers must reconcile what they have found with the lies S.H.I.E.L.D. has been telling for decades.

in the darkness burning out - coffeeinallcaps - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
A contradiction: His heart and respiratory rate increase in small dark spaces, but at night he longs for the cold confinement of his cryostasis chamber.

Sometimes he thinks till the end of the line till the end of the line till the end of the line until he falls asleep and dreams of Steve. Sometimes there’s an answering echo of numbers and a name, but neither the numbers nor the name apply to him anymore.

Sergeant Barnes, serial number three-two-five-five-seven (is that all of it or part of it? He can’t remember) is dead. He isn’t the Asset; he was, but he no longer is. He didn’t know who Bucky was, but now he does and he doesn’t.

He is Bucky, but he isn’t.

Always and Always - buckyjerkbarnes - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“I always liked daisies,” Sam confessed, only after Clint admitted he had a fond admiration for lavender and Wanda said she loved baby’s breath.

“I’m growing those,” Bucky told Sam.

Sam took a long sip of his drink, face smoothing over. “I’m deathly allergic.”



[OR the one where Bucky uses gardening as a coping mechanism, learns the language of flowers and starts dropping hints about his true feelings left, right and center—Steve can’t help it if he’s a little slow on the uptake.]

What Rough Beast - immoral_crow - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers, super soldier. It’s amazing really that it takes them all so long to work out just what the serum can do… but given enough time all things become apparent. This is a story about love, and loss; the things we would do to be true to ourselves and true to our hearts; and the prices you must pay to do that.
[what being immortal would do to Cap – especially when the people he loved started to die and... well, would Captain America even have a place in this world in 500 years time? What would he do without people to love or a country to fight for? What would be become? What would he do to turn back the clock and see the people he loved again? ]

“You look just the same,” Steve says, sounding wondering and nauseous all at once. Considering the last person who looked just the same . . . well, Peggy doesn’t much blame him.

“I’m quite sure I’m not,” she replies anyway.

Tony's Choice - hafital - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
In order for the Avengers to use the Stones to reverse the Snap, they each must make a terrible choice.

“We are the gauntlet,” said Tony, looking at Clint, then at Thor and Natasha and Bruce, and finally, Steve. “What is it you keep harping on about? We do this together. We are the gauntlet. There are six stones, and six of us. We each take a Stone.”

Sleeping With Ghosts - Chapter 1 - cobaltmoony, esaael, rohkeutta - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.

This Soldier Knows - odetteandodile, WitchyLurker - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky doesn’t fall and Steve doesn’t crash. The Howling Commados take out the remaining Hydra bases…and then they go home, just like all the other allied soldiers. Throughout the war, they discuss what each of them would do if they make it back again. The only person Steve doesn’t ask is Bucky. He’s afraid of the answer.

Steve himself isn’t sure if he knows how to do anything but be a soldier and a weapon anymore, but remembering the promise he made he vows to try to be just a good man again.

He buys a farm in Washington state, and tries to relearn how to be at peace.

(Featuring: Steve as a bearded farmer, two rescued puppies, badass Peggy Carter speaking truth, the Howling Commandos doing the same, an apple orchard, soldier homecoming angst, and two dumb boys waiting way too long to talk it out–but don’t worry, they do.)

It’s not like Nate’s never been picked up in a bar before, but he doesn’t ever remember it going quite like this.

In his experience, gorgeous, stacked, and insanely tall blondes who look like they should be gracing the cover of a Victoria’s Secret catalogue don’t generally saunter into grimy Cambridge dives populated by obnoxious Harvard grad students, walk straight up to his booth, plunk themselves down next to him without so much as a by-your-leave, and open with “I certainly hope that you’re not drinking Coors Lite or some similar lowbrow swill, or else I will have lost all faith in the pretentiousness of the dicksuck Ivy League communist elite of this country.”

Bucky Barnes will never die of a broken heart. The spell he cast at thirteen, in between white petals and whispered words of magic, makes sure of that.

But then Bucky murders someone, conspires with his sister to hide the body, and meets Steve Rogers.

A Contest of Stories - Chapter 1 - alby_mangroves, hansbekhart, Scappodaqui - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
All actions in war take place in an atmosphere of uncertainty, or the "fog of war." Uncertainty pervades battle in the form of unknowns about the enemy, about the environment, and even about the friendly situation. While we try to reduce these unknowns by gathering information, we must realize that we cannot eliminate them—or even come close. The very nature of war makes certainty impossible; all actions in war will be based on incomplete, inaccurate, or even contradictory information.
Having said this, we realize that it is precisely those actions that seem improbable that often have the greatest impact on the outcome of war.
(Warfighting, Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication 1)
Notes: The characters in this story roughly follow the same background and history as Hans Bekhart's Kings County series and Scappodaqui's Radio series.

You are with your family now.” She approaches him again, hands out. “So much shouting. Sestra is here.” He lets her take his hand, lets her pull him down and stroke his hair. “They didn’t want you,” she says softly. “But we are family. We are both unwanted. I will take care of you, brata.”
