Fic: If Only In My Dreams [steve/bucky, captain america au]
Bucky is a highly successful cooking and lifestyle blogger, the gay New England Pioneer Woman if you will. He writes all about life in his Connecticut home with his D.H. (darling husband). Only problem? It’s all complete fiction. He actually lives in a shitty Brooklyn apartment, is single as hell, and has visited Connecticut exactly one time at the age of eight.

When his agent Sam informs him that he's been offered an exclusive sponsorship deal with Stark Media and a three book contract to go with it, Bucky's forced to fess up to Sam, who's predictably...displeased. But Sam's also convinced the deal is too good to miss—even if they have to put on a little bit of a show in order to get it.

So Tony and Pepper descend on Bucky and Sam's fake home for Christmas with a devastatingly handsome War Hero in tow, and their already complicated plan quickly gets even more complicated as Bucky finds himself falling head over heels for Steve. Can he keep it together just for the holidays? Did he ever have it together in the first place?

Fic: where somebody waits for me [bucky/steve, captain america au]
After his wife's death, Steve Rogers was left with a one year old daughter, a much emptier home, and a grief that left him near catatonic. Bucky Barnes - Iraq vet and Steve's longtime best friend - stepped up to help him stitch his life back together and raise his daughter until he was back on his feet. It wasn't a hard decision as far as Bucky was concerned. Steve needed the help, and he needed it from someone he already trusted with his kid, so who else could do it?

Years later, Steve and Bucky have been platonically coparenting Sarah ever since Bucky offered to help out, and Bucky is starting to realize just how much he likes playing house with Steve... and how close everything is to blowing up in his face because of it.

Fic: step ball change [12 Dancing Princesses gen]
Tonight they're dancing in the ballroom of an old hotel. The July air presses in, the green trees hanging heavy with emerald leaves. There's a line for the club, snaking around the block.

"No need to wait," the oldest sister says, and each sister echoes her in turn, whispering, their words rustling through the trees. "Remember," she continues. "We mustn't be remembered. Be careful of when you are seen."

Fic: The Rescue [bucky/tony, mcu au]
Bucky remembers the wide blue eyes of the Mer in the tank, how warily he’d watched Bucky, and thinks that “captivity” is too soft a word for it.

Fic: Would You Be Mine, Could You Be Mine [merlin/arthur, merlin au]

Fic: Of Lemon Drops and Lizard-Cats [merlin/arthur, merlin au]
When Merlin Emrys became a single father he made one simple rule: he wouldn’t date until Aithusa was old enough to understand. Merlin had always had his hands full with his daughter and never had a problem with this rule until Arthur stepped into his life. Then everyone he knew started conspiring against him.

Fic: Just About Half-Past Ten [steve/bucky, captain america au]
But as he reaches Madison Avenue, Stark Tower a mere block away, the skies open with a whoosh, and he barely manages to duck under the construction scaffolding perched over the sidewalk. Thunder rumbles overhead, and Bucky frantically checks every compartment of his bag for an umbrella he knows is there.

It’s not. He does find some loose glitter, though, and a lipstick he wore for Pride and had thought he’d lost, plus a spare Metro Card he can’t remember buying.

He also gets a crystal clear flashback of leaving the umbrella under his desk to dry yesterday morning, and never picking it up again.

Fic: (Almost Believing) This One's Not Pretend [bilbo/thorin, the hobbit au]
Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins have been friends since they attended the same university some years ago. Bilbo decides one day to surprise Thorin by making the long flight over to spend the holidays with him. Unfortunately, Thorin's house is currently overrun with family who seem too interested in Thorin's (lack of) love life. Misunderstandings occur and suddenly Thorin and Bilbo are boyfriends - but not really.

They've done crazier things before; surely pretending to be together will be a piece of cake. Right?

Fic: Continuing Education [bucky/steve, captain america au]
Steve is invited to be a guest lecturer on the WWII unit for Bucky's college course. Bucky's more than happy to glean any extra knowledge (in more than just history) from Steve, and Steve's happy to eductate him. But then Bucky has to decide if he can handle the fact that Steve throws himself into danger, and if the sexis worth it. Or if it's not just sex anymore.

Fic: Use Your Agency [bucky/steve, captain america au]
Bucky is given the assignment (punishment) of being the agent whose job it is to integrate the newly-thawed Captain America into life in a new century. Only maybe it's not so bad. Because Bucky ends up dealing with Steve Rogers, who is nothing like the Captain America in Bucky's history books.

Fic: On The Cusp [damen/laurent, captive prince au]
The thing about Damianos Akielos is that he is a Hot Commodity. There’s probably a 30 page waiting list out there of people who want a chance to date him. The only problem is that since the age of fourteen, he’s never been single for more than a week. A week!

“He sounds great,” the bartender says, polishing a glass. Laurent realises that he’s been speaking out loud. He is drunk. He also realises that this bartender - Rick, or Mick, or Mike, or whatever his nametag says, words are a little blurry at this point - doesn’t realise the magnitude of the situation at hand.

Damen Akielos is Single, Facebook says.

“He’s single,” Laurent says.

Fic: Still He Offers the Sea Shell [anne/gilbert, anne of green gables au]
"Anne, Anne," says Diana, her face bright and mischievous, "Gilbert Blythe is back from his semester abroad."

"Who?" asks Anne. Being a transfer student feels a little like coming in during the middle of the movie, or starting a book on chapter ten. Diana is lovely and wonderful and the most perfect friend Anne ever could have hoped for, but it took all of fall semester just for her to catch up on everyone's names, and now here Diana is adding another one.

10:23 AM
i phoned the school last night and they said i cant get any aid except for unsubsidised loans unless i have a child, get married or turn 24

10:24 AM
so i have to get married

Steve can’t blame being woken on the groan he makes; he’s been awake for hours already, has eaten breakfast and run six miles. He’d been clicking through the reading lists for classes he’d be starting in the new semester, comparing the prices between three different second hand bookstores, cost quietly yet menacingly climbing on the notebook in front of him.

He almost welcomes the distraction.

Fic: Main bitch out of your league too [bucky/steve, mcu au]
It’s not every day that Bucky finds himself necking with a national icon in the middle of the deserted 6th Avenue, especially after an attack by a swarm of tiny robots.

It’s pretty awesome, though. 10/10, would do again, maybe without the robots.

Steve stops sucking a hickey on Bucky’s neck only when his earpiece crackles into life and someone yells loud enough for Bucky to hear, “Rogers! Quit making out with Nurse Jackie and get moving! Pizza in the Tower in thirty minutes.” 

“Ugh,” Steve says against the stubble on the underside of Bucky’s jaw. “I hate Stark.”
