Vigil - LtLJ - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
While waiting for Steve to get out of surgery after the events in The Winter Soldier, Sam Wilson meets two of the other Avengers.

|| Oh man, I love this. God, I love good gen. I can't wait for the next movie and see how they handle all these problems. :D :D

This Sam is excellent: notices them in the way that someone who works with PTSD vets would, but isn't just a repository for anxieties. Loved. The PTSD is minor: mentioned mostly through the eyes of someone who know the signs.

Parallel Constructions - freshbakedlady - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
In the absence of orders, the man wearing the face of Bucky Barnes must figure out who he will be. The answer, mostly, is "somebody Steve Rogers can love." Nothing so easy should ever take this much work.

|| Ouuuuuuuuuuch. (Great Natasha.)

His Fate Will Be Unlearned - Chapter 1 - scifigrl47 - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Tony Stark spent his childhood making weapons, filling the hole his father left in the world when he succumbed to alcohol, grief, and his own demons. At the age of fifteen, he ran away from home, and made it as far as MIT before all of his responsibilities caught up to him. Now seventeen, he just wants to finish his degree and escape from everything connected to the Stark name.

Steve Rogers crashed into the icy North Atlantic in the 1940's, sacrificing himself to save the world. He never expected to wake up, and now that he has, he's not sure he's glad. The US Army has other plans for him, but for now, Steve is slowly learning to live life in the 21st century, and taking classes at Boston College. He's beginning to suspect that there is no escape.

Boston College is on the T's Green Line. MIT is on the Red. The two lines meet at the Park Street Station, and so will Steve and Tony.

|| I lost my whole morning/afternoon to reading this--it's gripping, and really--emotionally rough in parts. Obie is just as bad as in canon, but it's fascinating to see everyone get to where they got in canon, through this different path. I think the characters are pretty skewed--but it's mostly through a different sort of emotional depth than the movies give them; more seriousness, less camp. A meaty, heartwrenching read.

Warnings: Obie, as stated, is emotionally and physically abusive, as is his son; Tony is a precocious and sexually active 17 year old; Howard Stark is an alcoholic; includes vivid descriptions of panic attacks and PTSD. Like I said, it's rough, although none of these are the focus of the story.

Don't You Shake Alone - Dira Sudis (dsudis) - Generation Kill [Archive of Our Own]
Nate looked exactly like Brad always pictured him: exhausted in the full life-in-a-combat-zone sense of the word.

This is a fucking wrecking ball. I've lost two nights of sleep to it, and spent those with my heart in my throat and a whining, sputtering thing in my chest. Impeccable characterization, voices and pacing; for a story that barely leaves the house, this has tension in spades and a finely-tuned sense of love and caring in buckets.

Nate has PTSD and a baby. Brad is going to be there for them.

When I Think (Oh, it Terrifies Me) - celli - The Avengers (2012) [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.

No spoilers!

sam_storyteller : Avengers: Homefront (Reply)
Steve Rogers is a capable leader, a kind and cheerful man, a good friend, a strong role model, and a loyal soldier. He's also teetering on the edge of suicide.
Warnings: Extensive discussion of grief, PTSD, some talk of suicidal impulses. Unwise drinking practices and some mention of alcoholism.

This is the Steve Rogers I have always wanted. (The warnings are for reals.)

sheafrotherdon: Fic Twenty-Twelve (Avengers movie-verse)
Tony would say that he remembers, but that's just it – he doesn't remember all of it. When he thinks of coming home, battered and patched and riddled with gratitude, there are gaps and half-thoughts where memory should be, and his sense of time is corroded, a gravel burn against his skull.

The tangle of PTSD. (This addresses BOTH of theirs--it is so. good.)

Semiconductor - gqgqqt - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Written as a fill for a prompt from the Captain America kinkmeme: "The first time Steve and Tony try something other than plain vanilla sex, they decide to go a little light bondage [...] halfway through the foreplay Tony freaks out when Steve touches his arc-reactor."

Done both kinkily and smartly. And touchingly. Adverbs, r us, also, this is totally worth reading.

luciazephyr: The Stars And Scones Bakery And Coffee Shop, part 4/5 (Dresden Files, Harry/Marcone, Bakery AU)
The Dresden Bakery AU I know I have tagged already, but continues to be brilliant. In this update, Dresden doesn't know how to handle having a family and his abandonment issues, and it hurts me. I just want him to wear the pink apron always.

Also he yells at Marcone for his jealous ways, and every ridiculous overdramatic angervomit is actually totally valid and I love it. Lucia Tanaka/Zephyr, I love you.
