What the Water Gave Me - SD_Ryan, hobbitdragon - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
One moment Steve stood listening to Fury talk some nonsense to deceive the bugs apparently everywhere in Steve’s apartment, and the next moment a door opened where there hadn’t been a door before. In the doorway stood a figure, outlined in the fluorescent light pouring out from behind it. Steve made out arms, legs, a head, but around those were....other limbs, squirming and curling. His head ached when he tried to count them, perhaps three, perhaps twenty. His eyes shied away from understanding the sight of them, at once glowing with an oil-slick rainbow of colors while also being the same empty blackness of endless space.

The figure looked hard at Steve, meeting his eyes over a face-mask. The eyes were the same as those awful limbs, simultaneously a bright, mesmerizing gold and also holes into a place with no light at all.

Fascinating AU where Hydra basically made Bucky the host of an eldritch entity. Because you have to have a good reason for hot tentacle sex!

The Devil's Acre - littleblackfox - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m sorry, you want me to what?”
Steve sits back in his chair and tries not to glare at Hill across the conference table.
“Track down a cryptid.” Agent Hill repeats, tossing a dossier onto the table. Steve has to stretch out an arm to reach across for it.
“A cryptid,” Steve repeats doubtfully.

The formatting of this story put me off the first time I read it, but despite that it's a very fun AU where Steve goes undercover in a homeless encampment (which is also home to Luis and Scott and Wanda and Pietro) to catch a murderer who may be the Jersey Devil.

After Avengers movie night falls through AGAIN Clint drags Sam and Steve to a local dive bar for some trivia.

Run by a super-smart, extra salty vet with a cyborg arm and his equally snarky sister, trivia soon becomes Steve's new obsession. Only because he wants to win though.

It has nothing, NOTHING to do with the stormy gray eyes of his host, or the thick framed glasses the man wears, or even the fact that his cheekbones make Steve's fingers itch for a pencil.

It's just a friendly game of bar trivia...right?

you know I'd quench that thirst - napricot - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve hasn’t exactly had the time to really examine his new and improved dick. He hopes, suddenly, that this isn’t the one thing the serum has failed to fix. Compared to not being able to breathe properly, it’s a small thing, Steve will admit that. That his dick takes forever to get hard and often fails to stay that way is—was, now, hopefully—pretty low on Steve’s list of ailments, as frustrating as it was.

Steve Rogers is very much not a virgin. Not before the serum, and sure as hell not after it, when the serum ramps up his libido along with everything else. Too bad everyone thinks Captain America is a sexless historical symbol. Or: the Sexual Odyssey of Steve Rogers, and how it begins, and then much later ends, with Bucky Barnes.

Also known as Steve as ALL THE SEX (in WWII, anyway) and then a fair bit of angst and sexual frustration in the modern era, followed by sex. The Steve/Bucky/Peggy stuff was especially good.

Captain Cosplay - Ignisentis, alby_mangroves - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
James Barnes loves to cosplay as Captain America, and not just because he's damn good at it, either. No, it's the feeling he gets when he puts on the suit, the light in people's eyes when they see him, the thrill of getting the details just right. It also helped him feel connected to New York after he moved back there for work. Well, cosplay and his landlord,Clint. So when Bucky gets an invitation to his dream cosplay event, hosted by none other than Tony Stark and judged by the Avengers themselves, he knows he has to pull out all the stops and make a new Cap cosplay: the elusive Stealth Suit. Clint turns out to be surprisingly resourceful in that endeavor, and Bucky's more than pleased with how his cosplay turns out. As the day of the event dawns, he can only hope that Steve Rogers feels the same way.

This was charming and sweet.

With you, (I'm not broken anymore) - Squeaky - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Just like his mother, Bucky used to be able to read soulstrings: The coloured threads the Universe puts on the left wrist to help soulmates find each other. Until the Sokovian Uprising happened and he lost his Talent along with his arm. He's been broken, both inside and out, ever since.

But those weren't the only things lost in Sokovia. His aunt, Magda, also died in The Uprising, leaving his twin cousins, Wanda and Pietro, orphans and him their guardian. They never talk about how Magda died, or that her death was Bucky's fault.

Bucky is just living day-to-day, running his family's bookstore and caring for the twins as best he can, trying to hide how broken he is from his cousins and the world. Until Steve Rogers comes into his life, beautiful and sad and asking for a soulstring reading Bucky can't give. Bucky agrees even though he shouldn't, and very quickly he and Steve develop feelings for each other. But Bucky knows their relationship is doomed before it starts, because it's only a matter of time before Steve learns the truth: he has no Talent, he's utterly broken, and worse of all -- what really happened that night in Sokovia...

The cinnamon roll is gone in four bites. Four indecent, jaw-unhinging bites, and Steve sucks the last traces of lemon and icing from his fingers with a low, throaty sound of satisfaction. He glances up at Bucky, who is leaning against the counter and watching him with avid fascination.
“Um…” Steve says around his index finger. There’s still a little icing on the bed of his fingernail, and he stops trying to work it off with his tongue.
“You know those movies where the girl eats an eclair or something, and it’s really, like, sexually charged?” Bucky asks.
Steve pulls his finger out of his mouth. He’s never seen that kind of movie, but the thought of Bucky eating an eclair is certainly… well, it lingers. “Uh?”
“Yeah, well that was the exact opposite.” Steve scowls, and Bucky cackles gleefully. “You are something else, Steve.”

We’re going to have to work on your evasion skills, so for the next five minutes, the floor is lava!” This was met by a sudden spike in both volume and pitch from the small children as they scrambled onto every raised surface they could find and immediately launched themselves right back off.

“I’ve never seen actual lava in my entire life,” Steve said, vaguely offended.

“You got a superhero impersonator for The Falcon’s niece’s birthday party,” Sam said, incredulous. “The Falcon, who is an actual superhero.”

Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

Hair burnished like gold, a smile that captured and held one's attention, and that subtle spark of unnatural light in the eyes. It would gleam even in the pitchest night, he knew. There was a fineness to his features that spoke of nobility—or an allure.
Bucky could wither away pining for that face, and that was the most dangerous part of all.

Bucky is a wandering knight. A mercenary for hire, really. He finds himself entangled in a perilous contract with a gancanagh, an Irish love fey. His mere presence is too intoxicating for Bucky to ignore, and it's all he can do to resist the temptation to kiss and touch and consign himself to the fey's sweet addictive toxin.

Two years have passed since Bucky was honorably discharged from the army, and still he’s plagued by the scars and memories.

Lines are blurred when Bucky realizes his feelings for Steve go beyond that of an owner and machine, feelings Steve might return.

I Do (please say you want me) - ceeainthereforthat - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Steve Rogers wants to be President of the United States. That’s why Bucky should tell him no when Steve asks him out on a date…but he doesn’t, and the story about the son of former Vice President Joe Rogers and a high ticket BDSM dominant going out on the town is in the media days later. When Steve won’t throw Bucky under the bus to save his reputation–and his popularity ratings–they’re offered Plan B: Love at First Sight. A Whirlwind Courtship. A Fairytale Wedding, and an amicable divorce five years later.
It’s Bucky’s dream come true turned into a heartbreaking tragedy–because Steve’s not just handsome, considerate, and romantic…he’s also dominant, with a surprising fondness for sadism. Steve’s perfect. He’s temporary. And if that’s all Bucky can get, he’ll take it."

Umm, wow. It's like this story was engineered to hit every single trope I love--hookerfic, arranged marriage fic, bdsm in a loving relationship--yum. Long, well-written, romantic, very satisfying AU (though quite quite AU; they could honestly be original characters but I loved the story anyway). 82,000 words.

"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.

"When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.


In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war."

Other than the fact that I wanted another 20,000 words of this, this was a really compelling AU in which Steve doesn't get the serum, Bucky goes to war and lives (though loses his arm), and he returns home, but the path of love is not smooth, since this is fairly period accurate. 41,000 words

Steve has his life in order, okay. He goes to wizard college, even if he can't technically do magic. He has his own apartment, even though it's small and dinky and kind of gross, and forgets to exist sometimes, and might also be alive? Plus, he has a crush on the hot cyborg in unit 404 who cooks fiendishly good breakfast foods, and may or may not have some kind of weird connection to the sentient building they live in. He's not sure.

He's dealing, all right, his life is in tip-top condition, or it was until an eldritch monstrosity called the Hydra started posing as a real estate company to try and buy over his new home.

He's really pissed about that.

(The one where Steve is an angry millennial wizard, Sam is a Disney prince, Natasha is a shapeshifter, and Bucky is a spoiler.)

This was a fun AU.

Wow, this was really tailor-made for my id. 75,000 words of emo porn, by which I mean a modern AU Bucky finding out he's soulbonded to Steve, which means he can help Steve through all the traumas of waking 70 years in the future, followed by a LOT of slowly rising sexual tension as shy virginal Bucky gradually overcomes his shyness with the help of endlessly patient Steve. Yumm. There is a tiny bit of actual plot/angst halfway through, but mainly it's just a wonderfully indulgent romp.

"Steve's just moved back to Brooklyn after spending ten years in California trying to make a life for himself as an artist right after high school. Having escaped to the other side of the country following the sudden death of his mother, Steve feels guilty about abruptly leaving all his friends for so long, unfulfilled, scared and nervous about started college at his age, and unbelievably lonely. So when he meets Bucky Barnes, a young sex-worker, at a bar the night before his first day of classes, temptations might be too high to resist.

One night paying for sex with the most sinfully gorgeous guy is nothing to brag to the papers about, huh?

S'not like he'll ever see him again anyway...

Bucky's job is to make the house a home for his new sons -- and whatever else his husband asks of him.

Upon clapping eyes with his kidnapper, he begins having memories that don't belong to him, memories about a sickly man named Steve Rogers and his life with Bucky Barnes. As the Winter Soldier tries to stay one step ahead of the Avengers, Steve realizes his feelings for his kidnapper have much less to do with these memories than his own empathy."

These ARE The Tentacles You're Looking For - die_traumerei - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]

Steve is a many-tentacled octopus-god who really just wants people to stop sacrificing to him and let him be a healer.

The Winter Soldier makes a fine sacrifice, in the waning days of Hydra.

Having found himself adopting a brain-damaged but utterly charming human, Steve sets out to figure out what the hell to do with and for him. Featuring cuddles, building trust, lots of sex (following the trust being built), an over-eager Steve who is only about 60% aware of how humans work and, eventually, a Bucky who won't get out of bed for less than double penetration because his life as the spoiled concubine to an all-powerful god is *exactly* what the universe owes him, thank you very much."

Still a WIP, so it hasn't gotten to the actual sex yet, but currently 14,000 words of tentacle-god Steve spoiling a traumatized Bucky rotten--excellent comfort fic.

"But you don’t look very filling." The tip of the dragon’s tail twitched. "I don’t suppose you’re a virgin?" he asked hopefully. "I’ve heard they taste better."

Steve gritted his teeth and refused to answer. The dragon could very well find that out for himself. He stared at the dragon. The dragon stared back. Then the dragon got up, turned around, and went back into his cave.

On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself.

Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

It's enough."

A different Ghost Army story--this one told in part from an investigative journalist POV. Really enjoyable.

Steve really is a tentacle monster in this, and for crackfic it's actually a really good attempt to depict the thought process of a tentacle monster. Definitely dubious consentacles, though.
