Heroes are Easy, People are Hard - Chapter 1 - Halbereth, Lorien - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Shuri and Wanda cleared Bucky's triggers shortly after Killmonger's attempted coup, and he and Steve went on the run. But it turns out there's more to "fixing Bucky's head" than "getting Hydra out of it." When a group of rogue scientists manage to neutralize the serum and make Steve very sick--pre-serum "this is bad" kind of sick--and they're cut off from contact with Wakanda, Bucky knows only one person with resources to help.

He calls Tony and surrenders on the condition that Tony tries to help Steve.

From there, it's basically three variously messed-up guys’ trajectories from "This Is Fine", "Reasonably Speaking I Know It’s Fine", "I Will Be Fine With It" to actually being fine, guest-starring a far-better-adjusted teenage boy who climbs walls, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, two women with a keen sense of the absurd, and Bruce, the Zen master of “it’s fine that it’s not fine.”

Add in the fact that Bucky's been secretly in love with Steve since the thirties and things only get harder. Learning to be a person is the hardest thing Bucky Barnes will ever have to do--but he's got company along the way

Be It Bravery or Stupidity - portraitofemmy - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The Battle of New York leaves Bucky Barnes with a lot of bruises and a surrogate niece he never bargained on having. She’s scared and clingy and unwilling or unable to speak to anyone but him. But Bucky’s never been one to turn away someone who needs his help, and he did save her life after all.

This by itself would be enough to keep him busy, nevermind that fact that he keeps running into Captain America everywhere. At first it’s an accident, then when Steve starts going out of his way to find him, Bucky’s faced with the possibility of a blossoming romance added onto the craziness that has become his life. After all, sometimes family is what your born with, and sometimes it finds you when the Park Avenue Subway Station is blown up by aliens.

Steve’s left staring at the kid- Peter, his brain helpfully reminds him. The kid is staring back.

“So, you’re, like, Captain America, huh?” Peter asks, and he looks a little starstruck but less so than he did when he’d stared at Tony Stark’s jet taking off.

“Uh, yeah.” Steve says, staring hard at a spot just past the kid’s shoulder as he shoves his hands as deep as they can go into the pockets of his jeans. “Call me Steve.”

“Cool.” Parker breathes, and Steve tries not to think about just how badly this is going to go.

We're All Stupid When We're Hurting - Taste_is_Sweet - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky had completed missions while in more terrible pain. It was amazing what you could push through when the punishment for failure was so much worse. But he hadn't needed to do that for over a year now. He'd gotten used to not being in pain, remembered what it was like to be human.

He knew no one would ever put him in the chair again. He knew he was safe here. He knew Tony could fix his arm without hurting him. Of course he did. But it didn't make a damn bit of difference to the terror that shook him like a dog at just the thought of sitting down and stretching his arm out for Tony to fuck with. Might as well stretch out his neck to have his throat slit. Hell, that'd be easier.

Easier to die. Yeah, he was losing his fucking mind.

“They told me you were enemies,” the girl said blankly. “They told me I had been forged in hatred.”

Neither Bucky nor Steve said anything for a long time. The girl stayed with her hand pressed to the glass, waiting. This time, the question was there, even if she hadn't asked it outright.

Bucky cleared his throat, tearing his eyes away from Steve's and pushing down on the handle. “Well, they lied,” he said gruffly, and strode out the door without looking back.

Post-TWS, Steve and Bucky's lives are just starting to resemble some kind of normal when a young Hydra agent shows up in the lobby of the Avengers' Tower, claiming to be their daughter.

When Steve moves in next door to Bucky and his family, it throws Bucky's comfortable reality for a loop. Steve shakes up Bucky's belief that he needs to dedicate his life to his family and Bucky's family seems to think that's good for him. As much as Bucky fights back against the pull he feels to Steve, he can't win when his family is doing their best to push them together.

Loki and Frigga meta
I actually suspect that’s why they cut the scene. He’d be too sympathetic. It shows him for what he is: a confused young man who gets power at the exact moment he feels he has lost everything. I love Frigga, and her intentions in this scene are the very best, just like I believe Odin’s were, but in the end she only pushed him closer to the edge by what she did and said.

When she hands him Gungnir, she says, “Make your father proud.” More than ever, this makes him believe he has to prove himself. And later they talk about Thor and Odin. “What hope is there for Thor?” “There’s always a purpose to everything your father does.” This, I think, is the point where Loki sort of… snaps. His position as king gives him some “safety”, but he feels insecure. The W4 have already challenged him. I think he doesn’t turn against Thor until the W4 choose him over Loki (because that makes it personal), but right now Thor returning would undermine his position. Thor would/could claim the throne and Loki would lose the position he thinks keeps him safe.

But worse, when Frigga says that Odin does everything for a reason, she inadvertently confirms all of Loki’s suspicions and greatest fears. He hears he is just a tool, that Odin took and kept him for a purpose. And what Loki heard during his conversation with Odin in the Vault, was that he had just lost his usefulness. He believes he has no real status as either son or prince. Hel, he believes he has no status as a being: he is monster with no inherent worth. Combine this with Loki thinking he has to “make his father proud”, and well. What we get is (attempted) genocide. (Really though, if Thor 2 doesn’t inform us of the extend of the destruction on Jotunheim, I will throw a tantrum.)

Basically Loki can’t even communicate with Frigga. And because of the society they live in her assurances that his position is safe and that he is loved will never be as important as Odin’s. But he cannot communicate with Odin AT ALL, and so even when Odin tries to assure him (with a very, very poor choice of words. Odin, dude, “no” is not the best word to say in this situation, even if you do mean “no, you didn’t have to do those things”), all he hears is rejection. Partly because he was waiting for it. But also because he actually thought he had to prove himself, did everything he could, and it still wasn’t enough.

Gods, Loki, your inability to communicate with you family is killing me.

  ! euphemistically !   -   ! euphemistically !  : For fans of the Avengers...
Right, so that’s your particular terminology for “mother” and “father” - you see it as one of sex rather than gender. (Also, another issue around “father” and roles/identity versus biology: I don’t call the one who donated his DNA to fertilise my baby’s egg in vitro a father and he is not even legally defined as a father.) I just wanted to add that those who have transversed sex (as Loki has done) tend to see “mother” and “father” as a question of gender not sex, and it’s a subtle point worth considering in regards to Loki’s identity.

Is myth!Loki always a male/he, even in the physical guise of a woman or mare? Loki is after all, not “really” a horse identity-wise - is he “really” female? It’s something I’m pondering (of course it is up to us to interpret “canon”). It’s obvious from Marvel canon that Lady Loki was always a “he”. But not in myth. I really like Audrey Koch’s drawings of Loki; she interprets Loki as genderqueer, as both, all, neither.

[The Avengers] don't turn me home again by irnan
"I need to know what's in Hartford, Captain," said Hill. Her tone was gentler than Steve was expecting. He didn't know whether he ought to be grateful for that or not.

"Family," he said. The word felt rusty and disused in his mouth, on his tongue, but it was there, and that was what counted.

(or: five times Steve Rogers went to Hartford, Connecticut, and the people he spent time with there.)

[The Avengers] Truthfully by salazarfalcon
Summary: For a prompt on NorseKink:

Loki had every intention of wreaking havoc upon Midgard the moment his suicide attempt had failed. Really. He'd planned on setting cities ablaze, smashing buildings, pillaging, all of that good stuff.

Too bad he hadn't planned on the place being so FUN.

Destroying City Hall? Maybe if he can squeeze it in between ikebana and his Thai cooking classes. Oh, he tries for the whole supervillain thing, but is it really his fault that he really likes going to yoga and hair products that don't require massive amounts of oils that leave him feeling greasy? Is it really his fault that manicures are so damn RELAXING and that those little Asian ladies in the salon are so charmingly adorable? Besides, his therapist says that all the rage is unhealthy.

TL;DR Loki gets a therapist and finds Earth hobbies that he enjoys in between bothering his brother and his friends.

[Goes on forever, and probably would have been better a little shorter but an enjoyable ride over all. I hope she continues this with a series as she promised.]

[The Avengers] Without the Usual Cost of Labor by vain_glorious
"Someone just reported to SHIELD that whatever was stolen produced “viable offspring,” and we’re hoping that doesn’t mean what we think it does,” Bruce says, evidently deciding to take over for Tony after only one masturbation joke.

[Thor/The Avengers] Kings and Vagabonds by spinstitcher
In the wake of the Chitauri Loki is stripped of his powers and banished to Vanaheim. Nobody tasers him, but there is an awful lot of singing and dancing. Accompanied by his eldest son, who happens to be a horse, Loki slowly begins to carve out a place for himself – one that isn’t Supreme Ruler of the Known Universe.

But there is another power emerging from the darkness; one that threatens the safety – and sanity – of all the Nine Realms. Loki may have given up his dreams of becoming Glorious Overlord, but that doesn’t mean someone else gets to take his place. [This is kind of complete and utter crack that about mid-way through I really, really started to care about. Love the universe building and the OCs a lot. Love Sleipnir even more.]

Someone on Midgard was praying to Loki, and so, he answered. Darcy thinks she's having weird dreams – but they're about to get a hell of a lot weirder. [Lalala hooooot. Also, one badass Frigga, just FYI.]

[Thor] Wish Bank by chinae
Loki is Odin's son, but he was born blind, and so is sheltered from just about everything. Thor treats him like he's made of glass, and while he loves his brother, he's determined to prove himself. So Loki waits, and studies, and trains his magic and his other senses. And then he goes on his own quest. Thor and family and friends flip out and think he's been kidnapped.

[The Avengers] The Several Heirs of Loki Odinson, Prince of the Realm of Asgard by theorytale
Prompt: Loki's greatest con is passing off random monsters as members of the royal family. The reason Odin keeps banishing them is because he's totally on to him.

It starts, as it so often does, as a harmless prank, but it rapidly takes on a life of its own.

[Thor] The Still Point of the Turning World by que_sera
After an inglorious defeat at the hands of Asgard, Laufey seizes the opportunity for revenge and kidnaps Odin's only son. He does not, expect, however, for his own son to take such a liking to the young Thor - or for one touch of Loki's hands to turn Thor Jotun blue. The two grow together, reigning beloved and terrible in Jotunheim, until one day a delegation from Asgard arrives to tear everything apart. Now, to prevent war, Thor must leave everything he knows to join a people who mistrust and fear him, while Loki deals with rebellion without his brother at his side - a war that grows to threaten Midgard as well. Now three realms hang on the bond between two false brothers, who must decide how their realms will stand or fall.

[Thor] I know the shape your shadow takes by Mira_Jade
Summary: "We mourned you, brother. We all mourned you." Those left behind after the fall.

Notes: Because I have so many Loki shaped feelings thanks to this beautiful, ridiculous, absolutely perfect film! In a way, this oneshot sets right into my steel!verse (my muse has it set right after "at the gallows, an about face", and ye gods, but my AU is now really AU), but it is more my way of channeling all of my Avengers feelings into something constructive. And it is a little different, at that, style wise, so, I hope to hear what you guys think.

[The Avengers] Asylum 'Verse by carleton97, Sister_Wolf
[Featuring Gift of Asylum and Louder Than Bells] The story of how Darcy Lewis accidentally helps found the Avengers while having an epic, failboaty romance with that dude she nailed in a bar two years ago. Tasers, jackbooted thugs, Tony Stark, and life-altering job offers are par for the course when you help discover an alien/god dude with amazing pecs.
