spatz + amnesia   54

northernsparrow: Forgotten
Sam and Dean are working a case in Wyoming, but are distracted by news of a dangerous angel called "Castiel" who they can't remember ever having heard of before. The name seems a little bit familiar, but neither of the boys is sure why.

AU from mid-S9. Excellent casefile that blossoms into some cool epic worldbuilding (continuing in the sequel), with heaping helpings of whump and TFW feels, and a perfectly agonizing amnesia mystery.

galaxysoup: Redemption Arc
Castiel awakens in a forest with an empty feeling in his chest and a deep sense of dread.

Post-S8 AU that hit me right in the feels.

toft: The Pinocchio Fallacy
Adam is a sexbot on the lam with a developing personality. Grant and Tory dreamed of changing the world, but sold out to the man. Kari works in robot rights activism in her off-hours. Jamie specializes in making things do what they weren't supposed to.

Crazy but brilliant AU, and genuinely good scifi.

julad: Love of His Life
After the party after the election after a very long fucking month, Brian drank a lot of booze and took a lot of drugs and fucked a lot of men. Then he went back to the loft and hit his head on the kitchen counter as he passed out.

I saw all of two episodes of this show, but the story's still really accessible (due to the amnesia) and possibly even more hilarious this way? You really *feel* for Brian being dumped into the middle of this insane soap opera of a life - except not really, because he's such a magnificent asshole.

manic_intent: Kingmaker
“Eggsy, I really don’t think-“ Merlin began, and stopped, because at that very moment, Eggsy walked right into a lamp post.

Across the street, at a sidewalk corner cafe, reading a paper, sandwich part-eaten on a plate, sleek, long legs crossed neatly under the table, was Harry Hart.

“How do you even lose a tear gas canister?” Eggsy asks incredulously, grinning as Roxy rolls her eyes at him. “Seriously, explain it to me again. I want to see if Merlin’s going to call bullshit as well —”

He stops talking when he flips the folder open and a ghost glares up at him from the grainy photograph paper-clipped to the corner, eyes cold in blurry greyscale.

casspeach: The Supersoldier's Amnesiac Groom
Steve Rogers has always known that the supersoldier serum was a gift, and he's never been afraid to do what's right. When Uncle Sam asks him to unite the two sides of the Cold War by taking part in a symbolic union with a fabled Russian assassin, Captain America doesn't hesitate to do his duty. Little does he know how thoroughly his world is going to be turned upside down.

The Harlequin AU no one asked for and everyone needs. Yessss, the feeeels.

emilyenrose: Out of the Dead Land
Someone is building machines that look and act like people. Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier tries to be Bucky Barnes.

I'm never going to get over this story. It was amazing on the kinkmeme, and even better after Em revised it, and it's 100% emotional agony and robots. What's not to love?

lenore: New Mutiny
Jack's always been a cautious man, preferring to part with information only when absolutely necessary. Telling unfamiliar people that he can't remember anything beyond a battlefield in France doesn't strike him as necessary, not when he's already begun to piece together the situation for himself. The war is over, and he's returned to his life as a police officer. Apparently whatever case he's working is not going particularly well.

God, Jack *would* decline to tell anyone he had amnesia and then mostly manage to get away with it, wouldn't he. I am so fond.

neery: Winter's Children
When their attempts to recreate the super soldier serum failed, Hydra started trying to breed Captain America clones from his genetic samples. Unfortunately, the serum's effects aren't passed down genetically, so instead of an army of tiny Captain Americas, they get a bunch of tow-headed, asthmatic, allergic, immuno-compromised little Steves. And then the Winter Soldier stumbles across Hydra's failed experiment...

I am still so delighted that Neery let me bully her into writing this. The Winter Soldier on a violent road trip from hell with a bunch of tiny Steve clones, everyone is super traumatized, and everything is feels. If gen fic is more your jam, you can check out the original WIP, but the revised Steve/Bucky version is my favorite. <3

mizzy: I (created from fantasies) exist solely for you
A comic book office AU, where Steve is defrosted a year too late, Thor has forgotten who he is, the Avengers are considered vigilantes, and Iron Man – spotted with a nuclear weapon trying to take advantage of the situation during the Chitauri invasion – was forever labelled an enemy of SHIELD.

Steve goes undercover for SHIELD with the comics team who create The Retaliators, a thinly veiled fictionalization of the Avengers -- which turns out to be created by the actual Avengers. A touch implausible at times, but delightfully funny and full of secret identity feels.
