Captain America (Movies) - the five unmistakable marks - magdaliny [Archive of Our Own]
Dr. Herbert Rush didn't much like the look of the sergeant.
Title from David Jones, who took it from Lewis Carroll.Frankly it would probably be simpler to list the classics I didn't reference here. Especial apologies are due to Pat Barker, Ernest Hemingway, Phillip Gibbs, David Jones, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and H.M. Tomlinson.I've been terrible about responding to comments lately on account of my workload, but I read each and every one, and I appreciate them more than words can say. Thank you so much for reading! <3

Captain America (Movies) - The Twilight Bark (And Other Things Bucky Has To Deal With On A Daily Basis) - spacebuck [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers: I couldn’t say no to this little guy, so I guess he’s coming home with me!The picture below it is an overexcited looking dog, barely older than six months, shoving its nose through the bars of a shelter gate. The tweet already has twenty thousand retweets, a few thousand more likes, and nearly three thousand comments. Bucky can’t help himself, leads in hand, and he leans a shoulder against the doorjamb and taps the comment field.bbarnes: if you’re ever in need of a walker I’d be happy to take the lil guy on, nyc based and rescues are my thing!--Steve Rogers is a bonafide superhero, followed by nearly a million people on Twitter, not that he’s all too active considering saving the world usually comes first. When he takes on a rescue dog, dog walker Bucky can’t help but leave a message in Steve’s twitter thread, never expecting the DM that comes his way.With that one tweet, Steve and his new fuzzball Duke tip Bucky’s life upside down, but Bucky’s not sure he’d have it any other way - especially if he can do something about the shadows lurking behind Steve’s smile.

so, finally here's my entry for the Captain America Big Bang! it's ended up being about 10k longer than it was supposed to, but who's really surprised here hahaI got the chance to work with one of my favourite artists, doomcheese, and she's been an absolute blessing! her art for this fic is incredible and i can't wait to share it with you all!a big thanks to Syd @sorrowingsoldier for the beta, Remi @needmorefiction and Frost @frostbitebakery for the love and support and the rbb slack chat for being incredibly supportive whilst keeping me picking away at this.on a personal note, this is probably the last bang entry from me for a while - but not the last fic. i'm working on nanowrimo with something i've teased at before, and i have at least three fics on top of that on the go, as well as codas for howitzer and katagida. so keep your eye out, and if you like what you see feel free to click my name then hit the subscribe button to get notifications whenever i post something! . you can also catch me on tumblr where i post snippets, write about writing, and yell about these idiot boys a lot

Captain America (Movies) - So I Took a Faithful Leap - odetteandodile [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.)

Written for the 2018 Captain America Big Bang! Please check out the gorgeous art by gassadaarts on tumblr! featuring campfire closeness and PUPPIES.And also this absolute loveliness by witchylurker in all its homecoming goodness. Big thanks to both my artists for bringing this to life, as well as amsch my forever and ever beta.
Come find me on tumblr odette-and-odileAs ever your comments and kudos mean the world to me--I wrote this for the bang all the way back in June and I've been DYING to see what you all think ever since. Also keep an eye out for a Bucky-centric companion piece to this fic out soon :)

Marvel Cinematic Universe - The Language of Joy - JudeAraya [Archive of Our Own]
Offered safe harbor in Wakanda, Bucky begins to heal. As he does, memories of his old life and who he was surface, including how he once felt for Steve. After years of suffering, Bucky learns that even without expectation, desire is in itself a beautiful thing. Until one day when he unexpectedly kisses Steve. And Steve kisses him back.

My many kudos to both my artist kissmisssangbang for creating this stunning piece (and being so patient with me and my struggles) and to The_Cimmerians for encouragement and thoughtful beta.Many thanks to KissMissSangBang for the beautiful art!

Captain America (Movies) - Lavender Town - Chapter 1 - velleities [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky lives in a sleepy town, shares a house with his should-be-boyfriend Steve, and helps Wanda with her crafts. He likes hanging out with Clint the owner of the animal shelter, and drinking Natasha's delicious coffee at the bakery. But there is something off about this life that Bucky can’t quite place; Tony Stark dislikes him for no apparent reason, his dreams are too strange to understand, and his left arm occasionally glints under the light. A series of strange events clue Bucky in on the fact that maybe their lives aren’t what they seem...

Written for the Stucky Big Bang 2017, with amazing art by the loveliest thisfanisonfire <3.
So many thank-you are in order <3. Infinite gratitude to octobergryphon, rohkeutta, a-conspiracy-of-cartographers and stuckybarneslove for the beta-reading, to silentwalrus1 for helping out with the Russian, and to the RBB Slack Channel for all the support and encouragement <333.

Captain America (Movies) - I just met you (and this is crazy) - Chapter 1 - littlesystems [Archive of Our Own]
After Steve gets outed by a grainy cell phone picture, it takes the media less than 24 hours to discover Captain America’s secret relationship with James Barnes: classical musician, teen heartthrob, and son of a former president.
The only problem? Steve has never met James Barnes in his life.

Title from Call Me Maybe

Good news, everyone! Chapter 2 is done and will be posted later this week, and Chapter 3 just needs a few edits and will be posted shortly thereafter.

Marvel Cinematic Universe - #TweetMeDaddy - StarSpangled (Senforza) [Archive of Our Own]
Coulson, for his part, stares up at Bucky with such a betrayed look of frozen horror that Natasha actually goes the extra step and presses another button, capturing the moment and airdropping the photograph to her phone for posterity. When he speaks, his voice comes out as a hoarse whisper. “Why…?” He swallows and starts again, trying for some semblance of normality. “...Why would you tweet something like that?!”“If you must know, sir,” and somehow he manages to make ‘sir’ come out with the same inflection most people reserve for ‘motherfucking son of a bitch’, “it’s because I have a difficult time doing my job when my job involves monitoring the man with the best fucking ass in the United States of America.” He slowly lowers himself back into his seat until he’s at eye level, making extreme eye contact with Coulson until Coulson turns away to make mortified eye contact in Natasha’s general direction through the one-way glass. Natasha would take another picture, if she weren’t too busy catching Steve’s red-faced sputtering. “Sometimes, I vent to my Twitter followers. Sometimes, it’s about hot men with washboard abs. Can I go now, or do you need a graphic description of how I pleasure myself at night?”

if you want to know why i haven't updated v-day yet it's because the STUCKY AU BANG SLACK KEEPS COMING UP WITH IDEAS GOD DAMN ITi'd like to call out nicole, grace, katy, jay, vagabond, and gracie for having this conversation without me. while i wasn't there, you had a talk that resulted in me burning through four hours of time at the office and another two back home to boot. i could've been playing aai2. this is on you fuckers.couldn't think of a good title, so credit to katy for giving me onerating's at t because i don't think it really warrants an m, but if anyone disagrees lmki'm so sorry

“Who are you?” Steve asks, eyes bright with anger and cheeks flushed with heat.Bucky laughs.His warrior, his Steve, is as brave and as incredible as Bucky thought him to be.“Is this how you offer me thanks for saving your life?” Bucky grins, delight making him giddy and playful. “Pinning me to the ground without even a proper courtship first?”*Or: Bucky is Horny. Steve likes his big rack.

Welcome to our Captain America Reverse Big Bang collab! Thank you so much to the mods for organizing this event and providing fandom with so much goodness.wearing_tearing: This story wouldn’t be what it is without my incredible artist: Quarra.

Captain America (Movies) - Also, Nightingale - The_Cimmerians [Archive of Our Own]
Post Civil War: life in Wakanda is full of surprises. And eventually smut.
Author’s Endnotes:
I’ve been a slash scribbler forever but this is my first MCU story; I blame all three of these ridiculously attractive jerks. Any shaky or stretch characterizations are 100% my fault on account of being new, and very late to this party. This was supposed to be a short and lighthearted sexy romp, thank you for bearing witness to my epic fail there. I was interested in exploring dynamics of this trio, writing bisexual characters in an m/m/m slash fic, and examining three very different types of masculinity with a nearly fairytale absence of toxic elements. Thank you for reading!
You can find me on Tumblr here (warning I am shy).
While I do not plan to ‘officially’ sequel this story (it had a specific character arc that resolved where I wanted to leave it), I may scribble additional smut as ‘missing scenes’, because I personally wanted A LOT MORE SMUT and I was not at all done expressing my smutty feelings about these three, only that would have been gratuitous and I am a very proper degenerate pornographer.
The title of this story is thieved from the poem You Also, Nightingale by Reginald Shepherd. There are tiny writerly homages in here to Missbeizy and Cesperanza and Jude Araya, because I know a good thing when I see it and I am an acquisitive magpie of a scribbler.
Songs that illuminated the writing of this story include:• Bindi Bhagee – Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros• Julud – Aziza Brahim• Cool Blue Stole My Heart – Joan Armatrading• Chicken With Its Head Cut Off – Magnetic Fields• Whatever’s For Us – Joan Armatrading• The Last Beat of My Heart – Devotchka

The Avengers (2012) - When I Think (Oh, it Terrifies Me) - celli [Archive of Our Own]
Look, some mornings you wake up and little green men are invading New York City; some mornings you wake up and you can hear Captain America's voice in your head. Tony has been an Avenger long enough that he saves his freakout for important things.

Thanks to Cat, Caro, and Shell for audiencing with enthusiasm, and Giddy for the beta!No spoilers for the Avengers movie. Set in the movie universe with some comics references. Title from "Choice and Privilege" by And All Because The Lady Loves. Drinks courtesy of Rachel Maddow. Written for the "Soulbonding" square on my cap_ironman bingo card.Additional warning: brief depiction of PTSD (see end notes to find out which scene to skip).
To skip the scene with the PTSD depiction, skip the section that starts "For a man who was packed in ice for decades..." and go down to the next set of italics, beginning again with "After the physical exams are done..."

Marvel Cinematic Universe - Liminal Spaces - layersofsilence [Archive of Our Own]
A prolific assassin whose career spanned decades, however brainwashed, was always going to cause controversy when it came time for him to try and enter the afterlife. So, a compromise: he is asked to operate a liminal space, to help lost souls to find the crossing-place. No going out and gathering souls, no keeping souls, and no kicking souls out.
It might be lonely work, but James is fine. James is fine, and then Steve Rogers, all blue-eyed sparking passion, marches into his liminal space.

for stucky secret santa 2017! this is my gift to Chanolay who uh, asked for protective preserum steve, hurt/comfort, and holiday fluff....,,...i wrote the hurt/comfort-y holidayish fluff and then i tried to build up a situation that would lead to the hurt and then this exploded. it's the only explanation. i meant for this to be 5k DX
(she also prompted protective fake relationship, which turned into protective real relationship, but shh)
i hope you like this, olivia. here’s hoping you have a very happy new year <3
grand hotel was, btw, just about the first all-star cast piece that hollywood put out and certainly the first in sound, starring greta garbo, the barrymore brothers, joan crawford, and wallace beery, among others. it was - and still is - acclaimed for its artistry, what with the whole working around the new sound tech thing, and then it won the oscar for best picture in 1932. so it was a big film and i just like thinking about bucky being a film enthusiast but even if he wasn't tl;dr grand hotel was a pretty big film and it's plausible that he watched it

Multifandom - it'll take a better war - napricot [Archive of Our Own]
“Pepper and I are—” Tony pauses for a fraction of a second while his brain runs rapidly through the ways he can finish that sentence. In the off again portion of our depressingly on again-off again relationship? Hopefully temporarily consciously uncoupled? On a break?“Pregnant?” asks Steve, perking up like a dog that’s just been offered a treat, and not just any dog, one of those wholesome happy ones like a golden retriever or whatever. Maybe the guy’s just looking for any bit of good news right now, given it’s been one nasty surprise after another the past few days. Tony kind of does want to offer him a treat, or pet him, or something. That’s really not a good enough reason for what Tony says next though.“Yeah, uh, yeah, we are.”

FOR #7Title from The National's "Lemonworld." I've been idly poking at and working on this fic for months, so TY MEMER 7 for your prompt and the motivation to finish it so I could treat it to you for CAILURE. I hope you like it.
Tony's "Baby? What baby?" comment is inspired by this Kate Beaton comic and our general feelings re AOU. TY to hoekitchen for the realization that of course, that line had to go in this fic somewhere.

Captain America (Movies) - wholesale change - Chapter 1 - biblionerd07 [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers, captain of a losing NHL team, has taken so many bad penalties this season he's worried he's going to get set down to the minors as punishment. His agent comes up with a plan to make Steve irreplaceable to the fans--a reality dating show. Where the contestants want to date Steve.

I knew when I started writing this it would be long. I didn't realize it would be this long! I didn't tag the relationships of Steve with every contestant, because that seemed a bit overkill. Hockey is a big part of this fic, but you don't need to know anything about hockey to enjoy it. In the end notes, I've linked to the Marvel wiki pages of some of the lesser-known contestants who aren't in the MCU (yet, hopefully).
Now! A huge thank you to my incredible artist, denimbxy (art tumblr cal-aus) for the beautiful art! Steve never looked so good.

Marvel Cinematic Universe - Comin' in on a Wing and a Prayer - boopboop [Archive of Our Own]
This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.
Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.
Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.

A million thank-yous to the amazing sortofapenny who created the most wonderfully perfect and perfectly painful Cap!Steve and Modern!Bucky soundtrack, then allowed me to take it and meander into the weird combination of angst, fluff and weirdness that is this fic. You've been a wonderful collaborator and it's been such a delight to work with you!
Extra sparkly thanks also need to go to Brenda, who took my tramadol fuelled ramblings and found a story buried in there (way down, waaaaay deep down). Thank you so much for both your handholding and beta prowess!
And thank you also to the Cap RBB mods, who have been beyond kind and helpful, despite me messing them around on posting times thanks to life, surgery and my complete inability to write anything coherent for about a month. You've been so patient with me and I can't tell you how much I appreciate it!

Johnny elbowed him back. “You just had web fluid and old cheese in it. My sister and I went shopping. Sit down already.”

Johnny talents in the kitchen are canon -- in Fantastic Four: A Death in the Family, both he and Reed rush to suggest he take over dinner when Sue says she's cooking, and in the 40th Anniversary Special, there's a future Johnny who ended up a celebrity chef.
