How They Dance in Brooklyn by aeli_kindara
Natasha murmurs instructions to his collarbone as they move around the floor of Steve’s apartment, the couch shoved out of the way — “You feel that? When you don’t have to think anymore, because my body and yours both want to go the same way?”

“Yeah,” says Steve, voice rasping, because he can’t help but think of Bucky — of their fight, the give and take of it, knives spinning, his shield in Bucky’s metal hand. Whatever Bucky is now, he still moves with primal grace.

ready to make it by defcontwo
Sam is terrified, a little, of peeling back the layers to discover the magnitude of what’s been lost in the past five years but right here in this moment, he’s relieved to know that some things haven’t changed at all.

His team is still his team; his family is still his family, as buck-ass crazy as they are.

Or: another way that Sam ends up with the shield.

Steve picks up the picture to be sure of what he saw, but there's been no mistake. "It doesn't even have a Navy stamp," he says, turning the photo toward her. "What is this?"

"Are you asking me?"

"It looks like a pin-up."

"Yes," Natasha agrees. "It does."


Post TWS: Steve is trying to find Bucky. Instead, he finds the sexy Navy "propaganda" Bucky somehow never mentioned he modeled for before the war.

I'd still love to read the comedic, cracky version of this premise, but this is sharp and intense and romantic in a blunt instrument kind of way that I really enjoyed.

A Very Specific Skill Set by Siria
Natasha doesn't fall in slow motion. Her life doesn't flash before her eyes. There's no time for it, really. The distance between the frantic clasp of Clint's hand and the finality of the ground is nothing at all. It's measured in a heartbeat, in the intake of one last breath, and the thought: this is going to hurt.

There’s a funeral planned for Natasha, for after Steve’s done returning the Infinity Stones.

They don’t have a body to bury but they’ll gather, anyways. They can stand around and tell stories, spill Asgardian ale in her honor, and let Okoye lead them in a Wakandan mourning chant.

That’s the plan but Steve, Steve doesn’t want any part of it.

If he has his way, there won’t be any need for a funeral at all.

“Seems fucked up,” Natasha snorts. He hears her rustling on the other end and he knows that she, too, is struggling with her guilt. “To be left behind and feel guilty about it.”

Steve laughs lowly, but it’s a sad, desperate, wrinkled thing. He passes a hand over his face.

“What do we do, Nat?” he asks. “Where do we go from here?”

There’s a silence so long he thinks Natasha’s finally fallen asleep. Then, the sound of rustling, again.

Natasha lands, in dust and sand and light, in the middle of a great landscape of nothingness. She sits up, and touches one hand to the back of her head, and it comes away wet and sticky with blood.

There’s copper in the back of her mouth, and she spits it out into the sand, watching with satisfaction as the blood splatters into the otherwise pristine surface.

Army Proof by tajargirl
Despite his recent and unexpected promotion from green recruit to national icon and media darling Captain America, Steve Rogers still lacks the skills and experience necessary to thrive in the Army. First Sergeant Tony Stark has dealt with decades of tomfoolery from his subordinates, but nothing has quite prepared him for the particular brand of chaos that trails in Steve's wake.

Steve's team includes at least one competent adult in Sam Wilson, but also contains Clint Barton, a mechanic who cheats at cards and still loses, and Natasha Romanov, their terrifying police escort. Together, the gang must navigate across Eastern Europe without causing Steve’s next major international incident.

On the other side of the world, Bucky Barnes is contending with a new reality while doing what he can to keep his accidental hero boyfriend on the path that will eventually lead him home.

Let Them Eat Cake by Deisderium, Kelsey_Fantasy
Steve picked up the piping bag and returned to the ramekins. Bucky left, though not without shooting one last look at Steve's wide back. Bucky could already tell Steve Rogers was trouble, not even counting the near-religious experiences he inspired among the staff. It wasn’t that Bucky didn’t appreciate him as well; he did. He just tended to appreciate people he found attractive from afar, because explaining the metal arm was hard, and because he didn’t really know how to handle letting someone in close.

But that wasn’t why Steve was trouble, not really.

Bucky wanted to know why their new pastry chef had gun calluses on his right hand.

Or the one where Bucky has settled in to his life as a sommelier, until Steve Rogers shows up at his restaurant.

Scents and Sensibility: The Working Assassin's Guide to Supersoldier Seduction by galwednesday, silentwalrus, skellerbvvt - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it."

I avoid all ABO fic like the goddamned plague, so to my delight, this AU is nothing like other ABO. It's a "gender spectrum" AU that has human gender/sexuality take some of its cues from clownfish, who can change their own gender, and to my intense relief, it does NOT do that thing other ABO does where it basically turns unpleasant gender/sexuality stereotypes into biological imperatives while adding/inventing whole new forms of fantasy sexism. No, this AU is just gently weird and the equivalent of easing slowly into a pit of blankets and pillows. Plus, it seems like the authors are having a lot of fun, which makes it charming even when it's not, strictly speaking, my thing.

Winter's Herald by leveragehunters (Monkeygreen)
Steve, if there's a time when you don't have to worry about anything, it's now. I’m a Herald-Trainee, Winter's a Companion. You're exhausted. Just…trust us. We'll get you home safely."

For a long moment, a moment in which Bucky felt gifted with sudden insight into who Steve was, he thought it could go either way. Then Steve smiled, this one warm and bright and just for Bucky, and it raced through him, lodging inside him like a miniature sun. "Guess I'd be a bit ungrateful to say no."

Some Heralds change the world. Some Heralds save it. Some Herald's names are woven through the very fabric of Valdemar. But most don't, and most aren't. Most Heralds simply do their duty, their Companions by their side, their stories recorded in dusty Crown records, not Bardic ballads.

Steve and Bucky figured they were most Heralds—no ballads required, thanks—and they were mostly right. What they didn't account for was that no Herald was ordinary—and with two of them bound so tight together, extraordinary was sure to happen.

Steve frowns, trying to remember, but as soon as he does a bright flare of pain goes off in his temples, flooding sharply though his head and not letting up until he’s stopped trying to think about what he should know.

Something on the other side of his bed starts to beep, and the other man looks up from his tablet. “Hang on a sec, then,” he says slowly. “Maybe you shouldn’t. Who are you?”

Sleeping With Ghosts by cobaltmoony, esaael, rohkeutta
The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.

Yours, Bucky by stevergrsno (noxlunate)

“Why? Because we’re from the 40s?”

“No, because you would literally rather jump out of a plane without a parachute than talk about your love life. Believe it or not, it’s possible people might make assumptions based on that kind of behavior.”

“Speaking of, do you see any planes around so that I can get out of this conversation?”

Black Dog by leveragehunters (Monkeygreen)
So long ago the details were lost to time, people began creating guardians of the dead. They were made from dogs, dogs who were buried in graveyards before anyone was laid to rest, their spirits arising as black dogs, bound protectors of the human dead.

Steve had always wondered what would happen after he died. He hadn't expected the answer to be 'wake up in the cemetery he'd been buried in', but here he was, some kind of ghost, and he could see the trees through his hands. It wasn't so bad, and he wasn't alone—a sleek black dog, golden eyes glowing bright, was happily waiting to greet him when he woke up.

Decades later, on what was supposed to be a quiet, peaceful, definitely-not-life-changing walk through the woods, Bucky stumbled across an abandoned cemetery and into the impossible.

(It's a ghost story and a love story and a story about dogs.)

Tenuous at best relationship to the canon characters, but a perfectly lovely and sweet fantasy/magical realism story on its own. also I basically almost started sobbing hysterically at the Laika bits, so.

Then again, Natasha would probably be calm if New York City spontaneously burst into flames. He lowered the coffee pot and squinted at her.

“Of course he has,” he said. He felt, abruptly, exhausted. “What is it?”

“The witch kept ranting about sexual repression and archaic moral principles,” she continued blithely.

“It’s not like you to prevaricate, Romanov.”

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.

Werewolf? There Wolf by leveragehunters (Monkeygreen)
After the car accident that cost him his arm and the endless rehabilitation that got him his shiny metal Stark Industries replacement, Bucky's happy for a break from people. The house in the forest is peaceful, town's a fair distance away, and he's got no neighbours...except maybe a blue-eyed wolf and possibly a naked guy named Steve.

(PS: Steve is the wolf.)

Fourth Floor - dirtybinary, mithborien, picoalloe - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
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.)

Once Upon Some Bullshit by Sproings, machine_dove
Bucky really hated magic. He had always hated magic, ever since the first time he'd been forced to believe in it, back in the trenches in occupied France.

He hated it even more now.

A beautiful white swan was standing where Steve should have been, and Enchantress was fucking giggling like the asshole she was.

In which magic is terrible, Steve is sick of this bullshit, and True Love Conquers All

And Shadows Will Fall Behind by leveragehunters (Monkeygreen)
The world was full of things no one could have expected.

Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes never expected to fall from a train into decades of torture and killing.

HYDRA never expected their perfect Winter Soldier's programming to shatter.

And Bucky, who'd once been the Winter Soldier, who was now an auxiliary to the Avengers, never expected to look down from a rooftop in New York City, where he was keeping watch over the world's most ineffectual aspirant supervillains, and see a tiny ball of angry sunshine. Fierce and fearless, he loosed feelings in Bucky that he'd thought were gone forever.

Bucky was determined to see him again. The better thing would have been to introduce himself. Not to stealthily follow him as he leapt across the rooftops, strong and agile, feet touching down like he was doing gravity a favour.

The world may have been full of things no one could have expected, but Bucky probably shouldn't have been surprised when his tiny ball of fierce, angry sunshine dumped him on his ass.

More AU than I usually prefer, but it's sweet.

In the Carcass of the World by Speranza
Based on art by Puckboum for the Captain America Reverse Big Bang. The prompt: "Post-apocalyptic AU. The idea I had while drawing was that the end of the world happens some time after WS or CW, Steve and Bucky are looking for Tony so he can make a new arm for Bucky, and Natasha, Clint and Sam are looking for them so they can stop Hydra from taking control of what's left of society. That or quiet slice of life, except in a post-apo world."

"How can I protect us, Buck? If I’m not Captain America, how do I keep us safe?”

One year after the events in Siberia and Bucky and Steve are back in Brooklyn, quietly trying to make a life for themselves. They have friends, a home, and one another. But the world can’t stay at peace forever, and when Steve comes home to find the shield waiting for him in the front hall, he knows he has some decisions to make.

Uptown Funk by StilesBastille24
Bucky starts running. He slips on his sneakers when the mornings are grey and verging on rain. Pushing up the window, he jogs down the fire escape and jumps the last ten feet to the ground. And then he runs.

Steve starts taking photos. Sam buys him a Nikon with a ridiculous amount of ways to capture a picture. Steve learns all of them. When the morning is soft and the sunshine butter yellow, he opens the door to his apartment and walks the ten floors down to the ground floor. And then he focuses his lens.

“Sergeant Barnes?”

“Oh, hell no, don’t call him that, man,” Sam warned.

“Captain Fuck Off!” Barnes shouted over him. “Fight me!”

Steve didn’t know whether to laugh or just slink away. He managed to combine the two by pacing two steps and snorting instead. Like a bull.

“I’m gonna need you to calm your ass, Barnes,” Sam said as he went limp again, obstructing Barnes’s struggling under him. “This is so undignified. That is Captain goddamn America.”

“Captain goddamn America!” Barnes repeated, louder. And angrier.

Steve/Modern Bucky AU. This has an admirable commitment to fun, mildly cracky tropes, I was charmed despite myself. A bag of potato chips in fic form. A really big bag of potato chips, it's pretty long.

the black lake by alcibiades
It all ran together. Maybe it had been running together for a long time. He kind of lost track of it after a while; he had a little tablet in his room that would show him a calendar, some news, the weather. He didn't even look at the calendar, though. Calendars were for people who had something to expect, some event in their future to look forward to. Either he'd forgotten what that was like, or he'd never known in the first place.

There had been a moment, in the water with Steve -- the first time or the second, he wasn't sure -- where his wet gear and Steve's dead weight had dragged them both down. They had rested together in the swirling silt at the bottom of the river, and Bucky had looked up through the water and the falling debris and seen the hazy light of the sky shining through.

It had been strange. Everything happening around them, but this moment of silence and stillness. Sometimes the feeling Bucky had now reminded him of that.

On a Pale Horse by leveragehunters (Monkeygreen)
Fast and fierce, the Horse Guard protect the Kingdom and its people, and they welcome anyone into their ranks-noble, commoner, or peasant-so long as they can ride a horse like they were born to it. Guard Barnes—Bucky—has come to the Kingdom's largest horse fair to find a new horse. He's supposed to choose from one of the approved horses; instead he finds himself buying a tall, skinny, angry stallion with the ridiculous name of Steve. Bucky can't leave him behind, but he's nothing like what Bucky's looking for and everything Bucky doesn't want.

But Bucky's more right than even he knows because Steve's not a horse at all. He's a man under a curse, victim of a powerful sorcerer's temper and magic, and he's bound to never, by action or deed, reveal what he truly is.

It's gonna be one hell of a ride.

A sweet fantasy AU that works better than I'd expected, and pushes some of my Valdemar-installed buttons.

Steve's relationship with Bucky violates a workplace policy. So, backed into a corner by his well-meaning but meddlesome coworkers, he does what anyone would do. He makes up a fake boyfriend. He just hopes it doesn't cause problems with his real boyfriend.

the star-spangled man with a plan by dramaturgicallycorrect
Steve watches him at a vendor. He picks up a plum with his left hand and gives it a light squeeze. The hand is gloved, hiding the metal away under something that looks smooth and black. Steve can’t tell if Bucky’s got senses in the fingers that fire and tell him it’s a good plum.

Steve has only ever seen the arm cause immeasurable damage, probably caused more than its fair share of nightmares for those who’ve seen it. He knows Bucky is right handed, but Bucky goes through the stall’s fruit with only his left hand, like he’s making a point. Steve watches closely until he gets it.

Bucky is practicing being gentle. He smiles at the vendor, an older lady who smiles back at him with some level of familiarity. He looks. Innocuous.

[Or Steve goes looking for his best friend in Bucharest, he's just not sure if he's found him.]

not the most honest means of travel by irnan
“She ran the red rooms,” Barnes said angrily. “She was Karpov’s right hand for god alone knows how long. If there’s anyone left in the world who might reasonably be expected to know every single trigger ever placed in my brain, it’s her. And you want me to walk out into a situation where –”

“She’s the only person left in the world who might reasonably be expected to know how to clean them out,” said Romanov.

Weirdly completely forgets about Sam (where is he????), but I enjoyed the effort to fold in 616 Natasha's backstory and the Buckynat, and thought Natasha's anger at Tony especially was well-characterized.

wash the blood from your bony fingers by newsbypostcard
When a mission against Hydra goes south and Steve is found unconscious, 90 lbs. and barely five feet tall, Bucky's pretty sure he's gonna lose his mind.

It somehow only gets worse when Steve wakes up and is the exact furious spitfire Bucky remembers, taken right out of 1936.

It's not just Steve stressing him out. It's tiptoeing around the Hydra connections among them out of fear that Steve will reject him. It's the way Natasha alternates between flirting with Steve and patronizing him, and the way Bucky feels himself doing the same. It's the tech hacks, the Hydra infiltrations, the way all this feels fucking hopeless without Steve around to remind them to take it one day at a time. It's dodging all the questions about Bucky's goddamned arm.

He's just fucking tired of being haunted by his past. For all Steve is intolerably familiar to him, he's also innocent enough to remind Bucky of everything they've lost.

In fact, Bucky Barnes will never remember anything to do with his missions for the Red Room, or Hydra.

She shouldn’t stay. They shouldn’t say goodbye. She couldn’t bear it.

Or they should say goodbye… they should demand a better goodbye than they got before.

She was frozen in indecision.

She considered bolting for the door, right then. No explanation offered. Her just... gone. She deliberated it.

Nat realized then that he had backed away and turned his back to her. He stood there, busying himself with some small thing, and waiting. Her no-goodbye option had occurred to him too.

Not only had it occurred to him, he was offering it.

She deliberated.


Thawing out is a process, for everyone involved. Natasha and Bucky finally face the cold together.

"Agent Rogers. We have to stop meeting like this."

The Winter Soldier crouched in front of where Steve was slumped against the wall, hands and forearms glued to the stone behind him by some kind of sticky polymer. "Comfortable?"

"No," Steve lied. "My blood circulation has been cut off. I've lost all feeling in my hands."

"Oh, so I should probably cut you loose," the Soldier deadpanned.

"It's a medical emergency. You don't want to be responsible for me losing limbs, do you?"

"Tell you what, if you lose your hands, I'll make you some new ones." He held up his metal hand, smallest finger crooked. “Pinkie promise.”

For a while, it seems like everything is... well, normal's not the word, but Steve's as right as anyone would've expected after being that seriously injured. He hurts. Physio takes time. Everything feels hard. It makes sense that it would. He was stabbed twice and shot three times, and Sam says he'd have drowned if he hadn't been pulled out of the river by--

Sam doesn't actually say who. He doesn't need to. The guards by the door had said enough. If B--
If he had remembered enough to pull Steve out of the river, then he probably--
He probably remembers--

Steve's hand slips suddenly off the counter.

One of the things Steve learns firsthand: grief is never as straightforward or as linear as five simple steps, even when it doesn't take you 75 years to work through it.
