Captain America (Movies) - I'll hold my breath - Little_Lottie (tfwatson) [Archive of Our Own]
Sometimes Bucky’s hands flex in Steve's direction. Neither of them knows exactly why, but at least one of them has a hunch. Bucky touches everything but Steve, even though Steve is all he really wants to touch.

Happy birthday to tumblr user @stevebuckythyla!
Title from the Ellie Goulding track, I’ll hold my breath

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.

Brooklyn detective Steve Rogers finds his loyalty tested when he goes undercover to investigate a group at the center of a series of high speed heists. He doesn’t know what to make of James Barnes and his family of choice, but he wants to know more. Drag races, muscle cars and intense attraction leave Steve wondering if he’s in way too deep. Spoiler alert: Definitely.

Art from faceisamess is added in Chapter 1!!! Thank you to my betas Callie4180, EnduringChill and gowerstreet. Once I figure out how to link you, I will!

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!

“Wait,” Peter said, peering over Johnny’s shoulder, solid warmth at his back. “Why is there food in my fridge?”
Johnny elbowed him back. “You just had web fluid and old cheese in it. My sister and I went shopping. Sit down already.”

For Spideytorch Week day 3: domesticity!
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. Likewise, Peter's omelet skills are mentioned in Spectacular Spider-Man #194 and Amazing Spider-Man #511.

Check Please! (Webcomic) - Two Things Only - Chapter 1 - westernredcedar [Archive of Our Own]
Bitty sighs. “So now everyone in the Haus thinks I’ve started a long-distance relationship with someone from California named Colton who I met through Twitter…” “Colton?”“I know, Jack. I was panicking!”Jack has to bite his lip to keep from laughing. “Okay. Colton.”  Or, the one in which Mashkov says the line, “Soon you get head here, too,” and it’s not a sex joke. Enjoy.

This is a gift for the amazing PorcupineGirl, who not only won my FandomTrumpsHate auction, but also was one of the organizers of the entire auction overall, and deserves all of the fics!This is based on two of her prompts. First, she was interested in getting a story about the six weeks between graduation and Jack's visit to Madison. Second, she shared this idea: "What are y'all talking about, it is 2016 it is TOTALLY NORMAL to date someone on the other side of the country that you met through Twitter. (Jack, here, I made you a fake Twitter account. Quick, pretend you're the twink in this random photo I found, you love to bake and you're a fan of my vlog, you know nothing about hockey, and you were born and raised in Southern California...Why do you think?)Though I feel there are twelve different fics I could write based on that glorious prompt alone, this one here is what happened when I took those two prompts together. *nodnod*The wonderfully helpful Sellahdor beta'd this for me. The title is from this unattributed quote: "Two things only a man cannot hide: that he is drunk and that he is in love."Jack Zimmermann ain't drunk.

Captain America (Movies) - Dishonor On Your Cow - Chapter 1 - mandarou [Archive of Our Own]
Barnes shook his head. “Dishonorable discharge. I’m done.”“It was a tiny detour! What were we supposed to do, let aliens take New York City while we sat around with our thumbs up our asses?”“How’d they even know we were there?”“My fault,” Barnes answered in clipped words. “I gave Captain goddamn America my name and rank during the Battle. He turned us in.”Steve stared, still eavesdropping, his shoulders hunching. He glanced around for something . . . yeah, something to hide behind.“What? Why?”They all stared at Barnes for an answer, at their Sergeant who’d led them through who knew how many battles. “Apparently, I . . . ‘lack honor’."There was a stunned silence. For several seconds, no one said a thing, a moment of pure motionlessness as the world buzzed past around them. Then one of the guys huffed. “Geez, Buck, what’d you do to Captain America? Fuck his sister?”The others began to make noises like they were trying not to laugh, but when Barnes snorted and looked away with a smile, the rest of the men began to chuckle and guffaw.“Senior citizen discount.”

I freaking adore Cap Steve/Modern Bucky stories, and there are just not enough of them. So I figured what the hell, I've got a night free.

Steve's face must be doing something complicated, because Clint says: “Hey, you okay?”Steve's about to shrug and brush it off when Tony says, “Yeah, spill. Nobody's allowed to be sad on their birthday. It's like some kind of law.”“Well,” Steve says.
The title and the verse on Sarah's gravestone are both from poems by Vincent Buckley: the former is from Ghosts, Stories, Places, Questions, and the latter is from Give Me Time and I'll Tell You. Bucky sings Al Jolson's Avalon, and Joseph Rogers serenades Sarah with Roses of Picardy. None of them were around to hear Sidney Bechet's delightful 1959 swing version of Roses, which is a crying shame. And, last but certainly not least, Green-Wood's bee boxes. If you want to help efforts to offset colony collapse disorder (and make Bucky proud), you can even sponsor a hive there. If you want to make an impact at home, you can order Seedles, seed balls unique to your area and free of invasive species. Seedles are US-only, sadly, but we Canadians can hook up with Bees Matter, which offers free seed packets and a handy province-specific guide. UK-based readers can check out the Royal Horticultural Society. Save the bees!I'm on Tumblr here, for personal blogging, and here, for Marvel content and writing updates.Thanks for reading, friends. <3

Captain America (Movies) - Chase This Light - leveragehunters (Monkeygreen) [Archive of Our Own]
In the modern world, where the creatures of myth live side-by-secret-side with mundane humanity, Steve Rogers is one of the gifted humans who straddles the line between mythfolk and mundane, and he's never told anyone about the day he healed a dragon. Living in the city in human form, Bucky's managed to shed most of dragon-kind's more unpleasant tendencies, but he's never quite managed to shake the tendency to get attached, especially not when it comes to the healer who saved his life. When healers start going missing, Bucky will do anything to make sure Steve isn't one of them, something that would be a hell of a lot easier if Steve could stand the sight of him. Of course, Steve might feel differently if he knew Bucky was the dragon he'd saved all those years ago.

Bucky hadn't known what was happening when he'd hurt Clint; he'd thought he was protecting Steve. He hadn't known Clint was an incubus who didn't like sex, hadn't known that Steve fed him regularly, Clint careful not to seduce, not to enthrall, to keep Clint healthy. He hadn't known because Steve hadn't told him, but still--he needed to apologise to Clint, to make things right. Clint, it turned out, was expecting him.(Takes place between the final chapter and the epilogue of Chase This Light. It won't make much sense as a stand-alone.)

Clint had never met the Winter Soldier. Clint was really okay with that.

Valentine's Day was invented by Hallmark, and Bucky was just fine with that.

Even without the rifle scope, even almost two years after the last Mission, he still spent a lot of time watching things. But seriously, this place was a circus sideshow even on a slow day.
And Bucky just might be a part of it.

They were about fifty miles from Atlanta when Sam stirred and yawned awake in the passenger seat. “Morning,” Steve said: the sun had come up, but the two-lane road was still pretty empty, a little morning mist hanging low over the asphalt and in the trees.

“I’ve sent you keys,” Tony said. “I’ve emailed, I’ve texted, I’ve called. Pepper called. There is an entire floor of Stark Tower waiting for you to move in. And instead here you are living in a two-bedroom shack out in the open with your — extremely hot, by the way, nice job there — boyfriend. The paparazzi are going to eat you alive, Rogers.”
