Creatures Such As We - buckysnowangel, seapigeon - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Bucky doesn't fall. He ascends.

When he wakes up, he has a glowing blue arm, blank spaces in his mind where his memories should be, and a kind-eyed Asgardian prince at his side, vowing to keep him safe.

The question is, are they safe from him? And what did he leave behind?

A really original AU premise, and I really enjoyed the altered Asgardian timeline that results from it.

We Were Like Lions - morningwar - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
When Natalia is almost five years old, she learns this: there is the day and there is the night. There is lying and there is truth. There is her father leaving, when he could have chosen to stay. In a few years' time, she will resent him for this, but now she does not know resentment.
Really engrossing Natasha origin story (and I am a complete sucker for Winter Soldier training Red Room Natasha).
She only knows that if it had been up to her, she would have chosen differently.

when i die i’ll sacrifice (more than enough for the afterlife) - notcaycepollard - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The fall is longer than Natasha expects.

It’s tears cold on her face, teeth bitten all the way through her lip and the taste of copper in her mouth; she’s falling and falling and then, bracing for impact—she wakes up.

It's pretty hard for me to imagine a better Natasha fixit (since this fixes much more than the end of Endgame). Also it's just one of the best Natasha stories I've ever read.

Mister Fixit and the Mechanic - Mizzy - Iron Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
An Iron Man 3 AU, wherein Steve was defrosted too early, and after a couple of lonely decades working for SHIELD, decides to retire and run a hardware store called Mister Fixit’s in suburban Miami.

Tony Stark, presumed dead, presumed not-Iron Man, needs to make some weapons to take on the Mandarin’s mansion. A non-chain store that takes cash and doesn’t ask questions is just what Tony needs.

Steve becomes intrigued by the mysterious mechanic that keeps buying things from his store, but when he becomes more aware of what Tony the Mechanic is up to, is Steve ready to be this close to the world of superheroes again?

I don't read a lot of Steve/Tony these days, but this was really really fun.

love has teeth which bite - whatshouldntbe - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
“You can’t, I don’t know, tell Fury that you made a mistake?” May questions between bites of her chili spiced mango ice cream.

Tony eats a few bites of his chongo/peanut butter ice cream before he replies, “In theory, sure. But something tells me that Ol' Saint Nicholas isn’t going to let me off that easily.” He chews softly. “You wouldn’t happen to have a solid two by four, would you? I’m thinking if I can calculate the momentum and arch of the swing, I think we can successfully put me in a coma without severe brain damage until this whole thing blows over.”

“Oh, Tony!” May slaps his arm and rolls her eyes. “Coma’s never solved anything.”

“I disagree. And so does daytime television. Coma’s a sure fire way to spice things up.”


How Tony totally meant to volunteer to be the Winter Soldier’s handler, you know, like on purpose (and not because he had been deliriously awake for 56 hours on a quest to put Fortnite into the grave before Fury had asked). This is obviously Pepper’s fault.

[MCU/AU where Tony was never Iron Man but became a S.H.I.E.L.D operative early in life, and paved a satisfying career of intrigue doing so. Among other things.]

I'm not usually a fan of Tony/Bucky, but this is a fantastic AU/remix of pretty much everything up through Captain Marvel, with a lot of comics stuff too--extremely enjoyable.

everybody needs a reason why they run - napricot - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Pepper doesn’t often regret the improbable circumstances and choices that brought her, Tony, and Jim to the SGC and then to Atlantis. After all, being an intergalactic explorer is way cooler than being the right hand woman of Stark Industries’ heir Tony Stark. But when strangers show up during her Gate team’s milk run of a trading mission, she’s got a bad feeling she knows better than to ignore.

Which is how Pepper’s Gate team ends up picking up a stray in the form of a metal-armed runner with a mysterious past and learning about a dangerous new sect of Wraith worshippers called Hydrans. But the Atlanteans aren’t the only ones interested in the Hydrans: there are stories spreading throughout the Pegasus Galaxy about the Nomad and the Widows, three maybe-heroes who have set their sights on the Hydrans and the Wraith.

Meanwhile, Tony’s trying to figure out if there’s something more to Atlantis’s helpful new hospitality-oriented subroutines, and Master Sergeant Sam Wilson is trying to have just one offworld mission where shit doesn’t get weird.

Really enjoyable fusion.

Bucky's been in Wakanda a while, trying to keep his head down and learn to enjoy life again in the wake of the removal of Hydra's programming.

Then one day he falls down a hole into a secret lab.

Things don't get easier from there.

Not a pairing I would have gone looking for, but the dynamic is really interesting because Bucky gets to help someone else recover from trauma for a change.

Brisingr - ironychan - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When Jane Foster discovers an object on a course for the inner solar system, it looks like a job for the Avengers. But when what looked like a comet turns out to be a refugee ship from another galaxy, it's not clear whose job this is anymore. Tony Stark and the Vision find they have an uncomfortable amount in common with the creatures called the Brisings, while Jane learns that the aliens are being followed by something they thought they'd left behind five million years ago. Set post-AOU, pre-CW.

Long, plotty gen fic with excellent Jane, Wanda, and Tony. (The other Avengers are there too, but except for Thor and Vision don't get a lot of screen time).

Grocery shopping had become something of a big deal in their house, if only because each trip needed to be planned as if they were stockpiling to outlast a siege. It was an unavoidable side effect when your family consisted of thirteen overly active girls that burned through calories like pro athletes and one enhanced super soldier that went through the same amount all on his own.
"Papa, the price isn't going to change just because you're glaring at it." Natasha pointed out.

Tony's pretty sure that corrupting an angel will get him back into Lucifer's good graces, and Bucky's gorgeous enough that seducing him won't even be a hardship. Bucky's on Earth to do good, which is what he was made for, but it's a little lonely. Surely it couldn't hurt just to talk to the fascinating demon that he happens to meet...

Not a pairing I usually read, but angel/demon romance is totally my jam, and this was sweet.

Tony Stark knew the world was awful, and that he was awful too. But they weren't going to go out like this. Thanos wasn't going to win. He wouldn't let him. He was Iron Man. More importantly, he was an Avenger. And Tony Stark was going to save the world.

birdhunt 2k20 - bysine - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
Thor is still standing there, beaming expectantly at Sam. “What say you, Son of Wil?” he booms, like he's Aragorn recruiting that ghost army from the Return of the King, except that Thor is just trying to recruit one dude who can maybe talk to birds. (Again: nobody is supposed to know this.) Also Thor’s wearing a baby blue North Face puffer jacket and a woolly reindeer-covered hat that Sam is fifty percent sure was knitted by Vision, so the resemblance to Aragorn is really only a passing one.

“You want me to do what where again?”

“I wish for you to join me,” says Thor, with patient magnanimity. “Huginn and Muninn have been missing since the destruction of Asgard. Now that my people have secured a home here on Earth, I wish to find them.”

(The other summary for this fic is: "oh, SAM")

Fun and unexpectedly lovely.

"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.

Quite short, but great Steve characterization (he's a normal guy and Bucky is still the Winter Soldier.

got guns in my head (and they won’t go) - bysine - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
By comparison, being roommates with James Buchanan Barnes, formerly the Winter Soldier, has been a vast improvement. Notwithstanding the part where people openly take pictures of Barnes (and consequently Peter) on campus. Or random people poking Peter in the back during lectures to hiss, are you really the Winter Soldier’s roommate at him. Or remnant HYDRA operatives kidnapping Peter in order to lure the Winter Soldier out (which, really, is too many levels of stupid for Peter to handle).

"You know you're not supposed to call him the Winter Soldier any more, right?" Peter says, while they handcuff him to a pipe. A pipe. "Also this whole thing is kind of messing up my schedule. My two overdue papers won't exactly write themselves."

I'm not sure why I love Peter Parker-Bucky Barnes friendship fic so much, but i really do.

Tony dropped out of college to get away from his abusive father. When his longtime boyfriend reveals similar tendencies, Tony refuses to endure another moment of it, running away with nothing more than the cash in his pockets. He makes it to Virginia, where he's taken in by Bucky, a restaurant owner looking for an extra hand who's willing to be paid cash under the table.

Bucky's been struggling for years: to keep the beachside restaurant he inherited from his parents above water (both financially and literally); to live down the fact that he's gay in a small southern town; to get over the man who's owned his heart since he was fourteen. But he's never had to struggle as hard as he is now, to keep his hands off Tony.

Deep Cover - SoftObsidian74 - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"If you wanna feel like a rockstar, you call Bucky Barnes, owner of Shining Star Karaoke and DJ Services. Bucky has gained faithful followers for making people feel like the main event. When different men with the same Dorito physique pop up at his gigs all over NYC, he isn't sure if he’s just a magnet for gym bros or being pranked. Spoiler: The man in the uncanny disguises is on his own mission to sing any time, any way, and any song he wants without being judged as Steve Rogers or Captain America."

Long, sweet AU where Steve is more disconnected from the world than normal--in fact, to sing karaoke he decides he needs an electronic mask--but slowly Bucky (modern Bucky, no Winter Soldier here) convinces him to join the real world. This had a very slow start, and to be honest I almost stopped reading before the reveal of Steve's identity, which would have been a mistake, because everything after that is a really enjoyable romance.

it'll take a better war - napricot - Multifandom [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.”

Really fun Civil War AU in which Pepper is not, actually, pregnant, but for some reason Tony says that they are, and his frantic attempts to cover up the lie fundamentally changed how things go in Civil War. I really loved this--great Tony characterization, and just in general a very satisfying AU. 26,000 words.

Deep in the Heart of Me - Finely Honed (jaqen_hgar) - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
"Veteran single dad Steve runs a tattoo shop. For his 40th birthday, Pepper arranges for Tony to get that tattoo he always wanted, and he winds up with the mother of all crushes instead. Jumping out of airplanes is one thing, but falling in love is something else entirely. Steve struggles with the idea of actually letting someone into his life. Tony is left trying to keep his heart from being broken while Steve figures things out."

I don't read much Steve/Tony these days, but this was enormously compelling--I stayed up until 3 am to finish it. Steve and Tony are both seriously messed up in their own ways, but despite lots of angst this is really very sweet. 250,000 words

Tentacle Monsters are Usually Bigger - MountainRose - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Steve and his Avengers find a 'biological sample' held captive in a Hydra lab; It's surprisingly chatty."

Non-sexual tentacle monster fic. AU where Tony is an alien held captive by Hydra and discovered by Steve. Really interesting look at what it means to be a cephalosapien!

How do you solve a problem like Maria? - stuckytrash (ThursdaysAngelCastiel) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Maria knows that the Winter Soldier was a ghost story, and nothing more."

AU where Maria Hill spends years tracking down the Winter Soldier, which changes a lot of things. Excellent Maria + good Bucky recovery fic. 26,000 words.

a thing we can't deny - tremontaine - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The tabloids get wind of the fact that Bucky and Nat were once married (for a mission), and this finally makes them realize some things. Very sweet and hot.

An Early Thaw - ironychan - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"An alternate universe: the year is 1986. Ronald Reagan is president. Peggy Carter is director of SHIELD. Howard Stark is CEO of Stark Industries and father of a fifteen-year-old son. And a survey team in the arctic has just found Captain America."

This story made me realize that this fandom could really use more amazing, plotty, action-adventury gen. 130,000 words and entirely gripping; I could not stop reading (especially when they ended up in space!!!)

Home Is Where The Hurt Is - vands88 - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
"After the collapse of S.H.I.E.L.D., Natasha has to learn to trust again."

Excellent, long Natasha-centric story that blends some elements of MCU and some of comics to trace the hunt for Bucky, his slow recovery and the gradual development of a relationship between Natasha, Bucky, Steve and Sam.

Never (Oh, Have I Ever) - Osidiano - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
""Bucky's favorite fantasy is that he was born a woman. He's not trans, he's just of the opinion that his life would have been infinitely better if he was a girl. Yeah, being a woman's no picnic, but! No war, and he's pretty damn sure he and Steve would have had half a dozen asthmatic kids by the time WWII started (because Bucky's goddamn certain he'd have been riding Steve since they were sixteen), so no medical experimentation for Steve, either. He voices the opinion during an Avengers' drinking game. This is how Steve finds out Bucky's in love with him."

there's a michael jackson song about this - Bundibird - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]
"It starts out as a joke.

Rhodey takes one look at Tony and Harley tinkering with and squabbling over some piece of tech and demands, “Since when do you have a kid?” and Harley glances up and says casually, without missing a beat, “He impregnated my mom eleven years ago and then left her to raise me alone. He’s a terrible person.”

Tony’s going to be laughing about Rhodey’s expression for MONTHS. "

Hilarious Harley fic. I love Harley + Tony bonding fic.

daddy, watch your little black sheep run - paperclipbitch - Marvel Cinematic Universe, Iron Man (Movies), Ant-Man (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Just so we’re clear,” Hope says, breathless, hands tangled in Tony’s hair and eyes bright, “we’re only doing this to piss off my dad, okay?”

“Hang on,” Tony replies, fumbling with the back of her bra, “I thought we were doing this to piss off my dad.”

This is possibly one of my favorite pieces of Tony characterization ever, and I also really like this Hope.

Home Yellow - yue_ix - Hawkeye (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
"When Lucky comes back up, KATE's "NO" carries down the stairs. CLINT drinks his COFFEE and ignores her.

When she says "DOG", Lucky looks up and so does CLINT. He points at her. She says "NO". He points at Lucky's bowl, the huge bag of FOOD propped in the corner, and his WATER bowl. "NO". CLINT whines a long time."

The Hawkeyes have an adventure--completely told from Lucky's perspective. Adorable.

Code Name Darcy - igrockspock - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
"The day SHIELD falls, Darcy Lewis probably should have run from the Hulk. Instead, she runs with him. When they’re captured by HYDRA and there’s no SHIELD to help them, Darcy has to figure out how to collaborate with the enemy until she can get Bruce free. That's too big a job for one woman working alone, but luckily she has help -- from Pepper Potts and Maria Hill."

Interesting and believable AU--a very realistic Darcy rather than superDarcy.

don’t go away again, I wanna be more than a story to tell your friends - suzukiblu - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]

“You look just the same,” Steve says, sounding wondering and nauseous all at once. Considering the last person who looked just the same . . . well, Peggy doesn’t much blame him.

“I’m quite sure I’m not,” she replies anyway."

Excellent a/b/o AU where Bucky goes into his first heat since being Winter Soldier, and is in need of an alpha. It just so happens that both he and Steve had made Peggy their emergency alpha back in the war, which leads Wanda to work some magic.

Mr. Phillip Coulson, a Gentleman of Some Repute - raiining - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Mr. Phil Coulson, a gentleman by birth and a soldier by training, has devoted his life to assisting individuals with private matters that would best be handled quietly. Phil enjoys the work, but his most recent assignment is about to become his most dangerous yet. Phil does not know it, but his peaceful existence is about to change…"

Very fun space regency-ish AU.

Upgrade: Advanced Happiness Skills - owlet - Captain America (Movies), The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Barnes's body does a new thing. Thanks for all the trouble, body."

You probably need to have read "This, you protect" first to understand the context for a lot of this, but if you've read that already, you should be reading this story RIGHT NOW because it's one of the most hilarious, hot and sweet sexual awakening stories ever. Currently my favorite Steve/Bucky story.

Relief (this world can offer me) - sara_holmes - The Avengers (Marvel) - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
Excellent AU where Steve is the one who fell from the train, and Bucky had to take his place and so went down with the plane and awoke 70 years later. This creates a really interesting Avengers AU scenario

"Polite, doesn’t know how to use a computer, tucks his shirt into his pants, and has exquisite hygiene. Bucky doesn’t know where this guy came from, but it sure as hell wasn’t Brooklyn."

Modern AU where Bucky is a cranky librarian, though everything else is more or less the same. 50,000 words.

Life of Crime - neveralarch - Marvel 616, Hawkeye (Comics) [Archive of Our Own]
"You're so hot," moans Carol. "Your emotional problems and deep-seated issues make you more attractive, and I am definitely willing to become part of the extended support network that you have created of close friends and sex partners. This isn't a weird and implausible development in our professional and antagonistic relationship at all."

"Wow," says Clint. "Neat."

How have I not bookmarked this yet? The one where Clint, Natasha and Bucky are kind of bad guys, which is a problem as several of their gang are crushing on Avengers.

The Soldier And The Hurricane - copperbadge - Marvel, Iron Man - All Media Types, Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"When the Winter Soldier fails to kill Howard and Maria Stark and is taken prisoner in the summer of 1967, his salvation comes in the unlikely form of a Russian-speaking, father-disobeying, endlessly-tinkering seventeen-year-old: Tony Stark."

An excellent AU.

I'll build a house inside of you - magdaliny - Captain America (Movies), The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]

Natalia is stacking blocks very carefully when the adults come into the room. None of them look at her, because they're all looking at her father. He's wearing combat gear, and the hair on the left side of his head is slicked back with blood. He smells like smoke and something unnameable, sweet and dark and a little sickly in her nose.

Father is saying, “Don't be ridiculous. The only thing children are good at is disobeying.”

Absolutely lovely AU where the girls in the Red Room are Bucky's children--at least figuratively--and he and Natasha manage to escape to New York. I loved all of this, but especially the ending

All For One - ironychan - The Avengers (Marvel Movies), Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
"While tracking down a weapons-smuggling operation in Florida, Steve Rogers stumbles across a dead body - HIS dead body. When he, Sam, and Natasha investigate, they discover a conspiracy bigger and more bizarre than anything HYDRA has thrown at them yet."

Really long, plotty mystery/adventure story set between Winter Soldier and AOU, with Steve, Natasha and Sam investigating clones of Steve. I had a few quibbles with Steve's characterization at a couple of points, but overall very readable.
