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.

“Why would you do that for a man you don’t know?” Bucky asks.

Steve raises one slow eyebrow at him, then the other, till his expression turns from skepticism to disbelief. His forefinger and thumb reach into his shirt’s front pocket and draw out a wrinkled dollar bill.

Steve looks him in the eye when he says, very patiently, “For money, Bucky.”

Absolutely lovely pre-war story, featuring hooker Steve and lots and lots of pining Bucky. Also absolutely gorgeous art by Alby Mangroves.

Linguistic Ambiguities in Vulcan Ethical Codes - by elumish (inspired by lazulisong's "Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit")
He doesn’t want to take Vulcan.

He’s technically on sort-of academic probation, though—they think that he managed to hack his educational history, which one is offensive and two should be taken as a sign of his skills and not the lack thereof—so he shows up to the first Vulcan moderately awake and ready to BS his way through with the minimal amount of effort.

Which would be a hell of a lot easier if he didn’t recognize his fucking professor.

He actually freezes for a second, halfway into the room, until another cadet pushes him the rest of the way; for a heartbeat he doesn’t know where the fuck he is, what year it is, and he thinks he’s going to drown on his own breath.

But he’s gone this long without losing it, so he gets his shit together and heads to the last empty seat in the back row.

“Today will be the only day I speak to you in Standard,” Professor Setal says once the room is more-or-less full of cadets, most of whom look like they would rather be anywhere else. “Every day you will be assigned listening in Simplified Vulcan, for which translations will be provided on your PADD in both Vulcan and Standard characters. You will be expected to be familiar with all works from the listenings by the end of each week.”

Someone near Kirk makes a horrified noise, and Kirk has to swallow down a laugh at her look of trepidation.

Vuhlkansu - by elumish
Pid-kom T’Pau switches to Vuhlkansu, saying, “Though your choice to leave Vulcan following your graduation from the Vulcan Science Academy was illogical, it served as the catalyst for your survival. The decision will thus no longer be viewed as a loss. Your service honors us.”

Jim swallows down the urge to gape at her, because that’s frankly the nicest thing a Vulcan has ever said to him, and it’s T’Pau , instead saying, “Shaya tonat. Tushah nash-veh k’odu, pid-kom.”

“No thanks are needed for the truth, khart-lan. Tushah nash-veh k’du.” She looks back at Bones, saying in Standard, “I will meditate now.”

Bones blinks at her before turning on Jim to glare at him and demand, “What on Earth was that? Since when do you speak Vulcan?”

“It is illogical for you not to have informed your colleagues of your abilities,” T’Pau says reproachfully, and Jim sags a little, which hurts like a knife through his side. He should probably actually get his ribs dealt with sometime soon.

For the moment, though, he just says, “Restricting dissemination of my history ensured a meeting with my classmates on a more even ground, leading to greater bonds that will aid me in a leadership role in the future.”

T’Pau looks at him for a second, then says, “Your logic is sound.”

“What the actual fuck?” Bones breathes, then mutters, “Ma’am,” at T’Pau.

“I’ll tell you later,” Jim says. “Any chance you can fix my ribs now?”

Bones swears at him through the whole procedure.

That seems to be the thing that breaks the ice between them; Bucky's never really hung out with Sam before, past being jammed into a too-small car for six hours and then two uncomfortable months in a safehouse trying not to get on each other’s last nerve. Now they’re getting lunch or coffee every few days. Sam falls asleep on Bucky’s couch three more times. Bucky joins him and Steve a couple of times on their morning run.

He doesn’t notice, is the thing; doesn’t notice how ever since Sam slept on his couch that night he’s been letting Bucky closer bit by bit, that as Bucky’s been wondering about the boundaries and structures of friendship, Sam’s been drawing in.

This is a sweet fluffy blanket of happiness. Bucky's starting to build a life, and Sam make up an increasingly large part of it.

Little does he know he's about to have a fateful run-in with a metal-armed Soviet assassin on a mission to find lost KGB intelligence. 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."

As it says on the tin. Peter decides to join the Avengers, and that comes with some legal requirements.

Tied to the Wait and Sees | Mizzy
Johnny Storm's in love. With Spider-man. Except no one seems to even believe Johnny when he tells them. Everyone thinks he's totally joking. What a buzzkill. Even his bff doesn't react supportively, which is rude, disrespectful, and completely awkward when Johnny walks into a time anomaly and wakes up in the future married not to his beloved Spider-man, but to Peter Parker.

Huh, no wonder Parker reacted so badly to the news.

"Just so you know, we're at hour twenty," Darcy said. "This is where I switch you both over to decaf. At hour twenty four, the computers mysteriously stop working. At hour thirty six, I find someone with large muscles to forcibly march you off to bed. Mmm...muscles."

Jane glanced over at Colonel Carter, who was giving Darcy the bemused look that Darcy often inspired.

Tricks of the Trade
Puck knew there were risks to asking Loki to help with Alexander Xanatos's plan to become a "self-made man," but the letter had been very specific that Loki was necessary and who was he to argue with his future self?

"You want me to risk my freedom on some worthless trinket?" Loki hissed.
"To Mr. Stark, yes, it is indeed worthless," Owen explained, "But not to us."

Graduate Vulcan for Fun and Profit - by lazulisong
"Frankly speaking, sir, if Starfleet knew I could speak Vulcan --"

"And Klingon, and Tellarite, and Andorian," murmurs Sakel gently. Bastard. Klingon totally doesn't count, because all Jim can do is start a bar fight in it. Not that starting a bar fight in Klingon is very difficult. It's like basic Standard. Excuse me, where is the rest room? Excuse me, your father sucks dick on discount bulk rates. Nearly the same thing.

"If they knew," finishes Jim loudly, "I'd be put in Communications and I'm going to be in Command."

Limited Partnership - Pookaseraph - Suits (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
31k words - this was great, really liked it. //

Mike isn't entirely certain how he let Donna and Jessica talk him into marrying Harvey while his boss was in a coma, even if they swore he wouldn't mind. He thought the hardest part would be going to the hospital and confronting the sight of his boss and friend lying there, but instead it turned out to be confronting his growing feelings for a man he'd never imagined seeing in a romantic light. Harvey's just glad he woke up from his coma, and trying to not be too upset that he's now married to the Associate he's had a crush on for over a year.

Harvey Specter wasn't the rich renegade badass that plucked Mike from his potential life of crime.

Tony Stark was.

Pizza And A Movie by Closer
Mike does pizza delivery and his life is a mess, Harvey fixes everything.

This series is collectively one of my all-time favorite comfort fics.

5U175 - Closer - Suits (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
26,400 words of awesome. Closer is this fandom's gift. // Harvey sometimes moonlights as a Star Trek BNF. Mike might have an attitude problem on the internet. TiberiusGhost is strangely compelling, for a recluse who never goes to meetups, and Harvey's finding this kid Photohead vaguely familiar...

Sparked Up Like a Book of Matches | Sena
"Steve lives in Stark Tower and doesn't have much to do when he's not going after Hydra strongholds. He attends charity events to make Pepper happy. He goes hiking with Sam. He hangs out with Clint in Bed-Stuy and watches Dog Cops. Sometimes Tony gives him super alcohol in a sippy cup. Sometimes he sees Bucky out of the corner of his eye and wonders if it's real or if he's starting to lose his mind.

Alternately, the one with terrible jokes, a foot chase through the Lower East Side, and a tiny little robot named Shitcan." //

This is fantastic--really fun and a lot more Bucky than the summary alone would suggest.

<3! The Winter Soldier is outed as living in Avengers tower, and then as being Bucky Barnes - the public responds. (Not technically part of Infinite Coffee and Protection Detail, but, as the author notes, "shares a few characteristics".)
