Weighing of the Heart - Chapter 1 - scifigrl47 - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers hasn't really had a particularly easy life. He's struggled along, he's proud of himself, he's self-sufficient and capable and he works damn hard. He has friends and a purpose and he's only a few semesters from graduating college. He's managed, but his life has been far from easy.

That's mostly because of a slight filing error.

The last thing that Steve needed was someone to watch over him. The only thing that his Guardian Angel needs is a second chance to make a first impression.

4 Minute Window - counteragent, monicawoe, Speranza - Agent Carter (TV), Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Post Civil War/pre-Infinity War, a massive series where Bucky "saves" Steve by helping him disappear - with a little help from Natasha. (Only they don't go far & start a renovations company in Brooklyn, & Bucky becomes Cap for a while.)
"Yeah, Peg. I think—Peggy, I think I have a chance to be alive again," and now Peggy's face was intent and serious and full of love, and how could he leave her, she was his best girl, how could he ever—

"Then go. You have to go," Peggy said. "Darling boy. Go and don't look back."

He felt his face twisting in all directions. "Looking back's all I ever do," he said and kissed her again, struggling for control of himself. "I'll write," he promised, soft and urgent, "or I'll call, if I can—"

"Don't let them find you," Peggy warned him, soft and sharp: still the best operative in the world. "Do more than you think necessary. Overcompensate. Steve," she said, clutching his hand in hers; her grip was strong. "Don't tell me too much, but will there be someone to look after you?" She looked hard at him. "You need someone to look after you."

"Yes," Steve said, and squeezed her hand tight. "Yes, there will be."

"Good," Peggy said.

Bait and Switch
"Post-action tacos?” Tony suggested. “I’m thinking that place by Fordham. BattleBot, you in?” “Can’t,” the Soldier said, typing something into his phone. “I have a date.” Tony stopped talking for an entire three seconds. “You. Have a date.” The Soldier looked up and blinked, clearly nonplussed to find Sam and Tony both staring at him. “Yes.” “With who?” “My boyfriend.” “You have a boyfriend. You have a boyfriend?” Tony looked like he’d just walked into a lamppost, and then the lamppost had handed him a birthday present. (2650 words)

nonymos: War, Children
After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.

Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.

This AU is entirely made of feels, and I for one approve strongly. (Especially when it's this well-written.)

Schrödinger's Romance
"It could be a relationship, it could not be. You can assume either until you see for sure the results." We all know those moments. Those moments when your family all gathers around you and asks "So, do you have a boyfriend yet?". Bucky knows these moments all too well and, quite frankly, he's sick to death of them. Unfortunately, being a 21 year old college student makes it harder for him to come up with excuses, and with Christmas coming up he needs to think of a way out fast. A chance encounter with a stranger through an old library textbook could just be the kind of miracle he needs to make it through the holidays with his last shreds of sanity intact. (192,220 words)

✢ Ain't No Grave (Can Keep My Body Down)
"It's six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone. For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don't. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It's very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters. I AM SORRY FOR SHOOTING YOU. Steve sits down hard on the steps." (107,095 words) Second in the "Ain't No Grave" series - again, some of the best OC's I've seen in fanfic.

Body Studies
Bucky wants Steve to draw him. Bucky's bored enough to model, and that's -- that's --

“That's -- a fun idea,” Steve supplies, fingers tight around his pencil. “I mean, we could try that if you wanted to.” Is his palm sweating on the pencil? “It'd be pretty boring for you, though, I guess.”

arsenicjade & hoosierbitch: Like an Arrow Through a Flock of Doves
When he takes the rap for a crime committed by Barney and the Swordsman, Clint is charged as an adult at 17 and spends the next four years of his life without protection in prison. Enter one Neal Caffrey, who knows how to charm his way to whatever he wants or needs, and Clint's life gets a lot more interesting. Pretty much, the story of Clint in prison, Clint getting out, and Clint, like always, finding his way to SHIELD, and Phil.

dsudis: The One Who Knows
"You probably don't remember me," the guy said with an apologetic smile, "but my name is--"

"Stevie," TJ said as it dawned on him. It literally felt like the sun coming up, like waking up out of a long sleep, and TJ surged to his feet without thinking. "Oh my God, Stevie, I missed you so much."

It figures that it would take transplanting Steve Rogers into another universe to make a suitably happy ending for TJ. So, so lovely.

"Steve!" Darcy exclaims, clapping her hands together. "You paint right?"

"Yeah," he replies and the widening grin on her face tells him that this can lead nowhere but trouble as she tugs at his sleeve and leads him down the hall.

mizzy: I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you
A comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, the Avengers are considered vigilantes, and Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation during the Chitauri invasion – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

Steve goes undercover for SHIELD with the comics team who create The Retaliators, a thinly veiled fictionalization of the Avengers -- which turns out to be created by the actual Avengers. A touch implausible at times, but delightfully funny and full of secret identity feels.

jaune_chat: Draw You As You Truly Are
In a far-forgotten attic at the Xavier School for the Gifted, two young mutants come across a very unexpected find - drawings of all the original Avengers by one of their teammates. In the nude. When one of the mutants uses her power to look into the past, both can see what the Avengers meant to each other.

This is really really sweet and insightful -- a great execution of a cool idea.

Five women Steve has drawn. My favorite is Natasha's section - she would absolutely make the best comics superheroine, and Steve is adorkable - and Pepper's.
