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]
Merlin does not want to invite the Prime Minister's son onto his show, even if he is an environmental scientist. Arthur does not want to admit that he has a crush on the star of Merlin's Castle, the most popular children's show in the nation.

In which Merlin is Mr. Rogers, there is a bouquet of finger puppets, Freya and Gwaine hooked up years ago and neither of them wants to talk about it, and eventually everything turns out okay.

Fic: Lonely Rivers Sigh [steve/bucky, captain america au]
Bucky Barnes has been dead for so long he hardly remembers being alive. He's seen a lot of changes to the building he haunts - but after a few 'accidents' with new owners, the building has remained untouched through the years. That is, until it is inherited by one Steve Rogers...

Fic: The Joy of Little Things [bucky/steve, captain america au]
"Do you want me to eat you?"

“No, but—” Steve broke off his instinctive response. All his life, he’d believed in doing what was right… he was not about to stop now. Wincing at the prickling pain in his feet, he straightened up to his full height. “Yes. If it means you’ll leave this place.”

"But you don’t look very filling." The tip of the dragon’s tail twitched. "I don’t suppose you’re a virgin?" he asked hopefully. "I’ve heard they taste better."

Steve gritted his teeth and refused to answer. The dragon could very well find that out for himself. He stared at the dragon. The dragon stared back. Then the dragon got up, turned around, and went back into his cave.

"Well? Come on, tribute."

 

or, how Steve ends up working for a dragon with a very odd sense of humor

Fic: The Silver Answer [bucky/steve, captain america au]
On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself. 

Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

It's enough.

Fic: On a Pale Horse [bucky/steve, captain america au]
Fast and fierce, the Horse Guard protect the Kingdom and its people, and they welcome anyone into their ranks-noble, commoner, or peasant-so long as they can ride a horse like they were born to it. Guard Barnes—Bucky—has come to the Kingdom's largest horse fair to find a new horse. He's supposed to choose from one of the approved horses; instead he finds himself buying a tall, skinny, angry stallion with the ridiculous name of Steve. Bucky can't leave him behind, but he's nothing like what Bucky's looking for and everything Bucky doesn't want.

But Bucky's more right than even he knows because Steve's not a horse at all. He's a man under a curse, victim of a powerful sorcerer's temper and magic, and he's bound to never, by action or deed, reveal what he truly is.

It's gonna be one hell of a ride.

The thing is: it’s not Clint’s dog. Clint doesn’t own it. He didn’t raise it from a puppy or anything. He just... Found it.

Fic: Found Your Husband [clint/steve, avengers au]
Clint was never any good at strategy. He's pretty good at putting his foot in his mouth, though. Never to the extent where he ends up accidentally marrying someone he's not seen in twenty years, though.

Fic: Harder/Better/Faster/Stronger [kate/america, marvel au]
Kate didn’t get a medal, which is fine, Clint says he didn’t get a medal his first Olympics either.

She’d be more reassured if half of Clint’s hobbies didn’t involve day drinking and his copious collection of exes, and if he weren’t currently hiding his dog in her room in the athletes’ village.

Bucky should have known Brock was a total asshole, but he certainly wasn't expecting him to cheat on him - and then steal his laptop! Stealing it back was the only option he had, really.
