To Build a Better World - asocialconstruct - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Project Insight crashes and burns, but HYDRA had a dozen backup plans and a ways down the road, one of them works. Steve and Sam have found Bucky and they’ve been working together, but then suddenly HYDRA’s in charge of the entire world and Bucky and Sam (and Steve?) are taken captive.


Any day now—any second—Bucky and Steve are going to come crashing through a wall of squid Nazis, eight feet tall, shield in hand and guns blazing. Sam’s going to punch in some faces until his hands hurt, throw off some amazing one liners, and they’re going to ride into the sunset.

While eating steak.

It’ll be great.

Except that Steve’s dead and Bucky might as well be, and nobody’s coming for Sam.

A Contest of Stories - Chapter 1 - alby_mangroves, hansbekhart, Scappodaqui - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
All actions in war take place in an atmosphere of uncertainty, or the "fog of war." Uncertainty pervades battle in the form of unknowns about the enemy, about the environment, and even about the friendly situation. While we try to reduce these unknowns by gathering information, we must realize that we cannot eliminate them—or even come close. The very nature of war makes certainty impossible; all actions in war will be based on incomplete, inaccurate, or even contradictory information.
Having said this, we realize that it is precisely those actions that seem improbable that often have the greatest impact on the outcome of war.
(Warfighting, Marine Corps Doctrinal Publication 1)
Notes: The characters in this story roughly follow the same background and history as Hans Bekhart's Kings County series and Scappodaqui's Radio series.

Autonomy - Chapter 1 - Amethystina - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
After spending years under HYDRA's control the last thing Bucky wants is to return to their ranks. He does so only because his situation provides an invaluable opportunity to infiltrate the most impenetrable army in the galaxy — his own discomfort is a small price to pay for the lives he might save in the future.

Three months is all he can take before he decides to throw his cover and find his way back to Steve, HYDRA hot on his heels. With him, Bucky has a memory drive of stolen information and a second personality sharing his body, courtesy of HYDRA’s brainwashing.

All Bucky wants is to deliver the information to Steve and the Alliance and finally return home, but when his ship is damaged he has no choice but to stop for emergency repairs. He's directed to 'The Mechanic,' who can supposedly help, but Bucky isn't exactly comforted when he meets the man in question.

But with HYDRA breathing down his neck Bucky doesn't have a choice — he's going to have to trust this Tony, whether he likes it or not.

Louis hates Harry. Harry hates being hated. First aid kits and kittens make it better.

They're both way too fucked up for any all-encompassing friendship, and when you put them together, it's fucked up squared.
Louis is too acerbic to not hurt people, and Harry is too passive aggressive to stand up for himself.
Louis is too nosy and controlling, Harry is too secretive and distrustful.
Louis is too brash and loud, Harry is too contained and reserved.
Louis is too openly bitchy, Harry is too convincingly fake.

It's not surprising he spent two years hating the kid.

The words “My fiance” are written in Niall’s neat, bold handwriting, a small heart scrawled next to them, and his heart stops. His chest tightens, and he feels himself tear up immediately.

“I’d say you got it right,” Niall says simply, eyes and voice gentle, and it doesn’t do much to stop the tears from falling.

Niall hands him a handkerchief, and he’s the smug one now, asking him, “You okay?”

“Shut up, Ni,” he says, no heat to it as he takes the offered handkerchief with slightly trembling hands and he wipes away the tears on his face.

It’s not about being scared. It’s about being reasonable, doing the right thing. Eventually Louis would do something to Harry he couldn’t fix, and the thought of that boy breaking beneath him is too much to—it’s not fair. It’s not fair to Harry. He should be able to love someone that can love him back, no questions asked. Easy, easy, easy.

Louis can’t love properly anymore. He doesn’t know how.

He just knows how to take, how to run. How to stain a body black with his hands.

Landslide - Chapter 1 - aimmyarrowshigh, spibsy (lucy_and_ramona) - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
The year is 1976. In November, Jimmy Carter will take control of the White House. Americans are meeting Laverne & Shirley at their apartment in Milwaukee. Hotel California diverges from the reign of Kool & the Gang. And the FBI is still reeling from the repercussions of Watergate, the tragedy at Wounded Knee, Operation Family Secrets, and the strategic terrors of the anti-cult movement.

That's what Special Agent Harry Styles has been told is the basis of his mission to an abandoned farmhouse in rural New Hampshire.

With his hair grown out long and his shirt untucked, he's going undercover to do reconnaissance on suspected cult leader Louis Tomlinson, who has led a group of people out into the middle of nowhere, leaving no record of the life he'd had before. All Harry knows is what the agency gave him: Tomlinson's name, and instructions to figure out what he's doing with the eleven people he brought with him.

Christmas in St. Petersburg - Amerou - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
"That sent you here to kill me?" she asks imperiously, her English impeccable, and even though she's wet to the skin in blood, shivering from cold and terrified about what she's going to do next, the sheer amount of balls it takes to say that to his face, in this situation, makes him grin ever wider. (Clint will look back years later and say that this is the moment when he first loves her, when she is a little ball of exposed neuroses with no direction and even less hope of a future, but she still has the defiance and the nerve to spit in the face of a stranger.)

allisnow: Fic: Avengers (Clint/Natasha) - Out is Through by allisnow
He pulls back, wide-eyed as a panicked horse, and she knows the fear has him in its grip again: the fear that he’s going to take her against her will, that he’s going to kill her, that he’s going to go back to what he was before. The fear that he can’t remake himself. "We're going to do a little experiment," she whispers into his ear, hands on his shoulders. "Very scientific. If he's in there, if I'm your trigger, we're going to root the bastard out." [Natasha is not afraid of dreams. (She dreams, but she does not remember.)]

allisnow: Fic: Avengers (Clint/Natasha) - An Arrow, Discarded by allisnow
Like a man looking over his shoulder he sees that the panic has faded; he is no longer worried about what is in his hands because she is in his hands and he is in hers. [He is Clint Barton and he is Hawkeye and he is Loki and he is a rime of blue ice. He is an arrow loosed from a madman's bow.]

avengers assemble - 5
Bruce had been planning a take out order, and asked if there was anything that Tony wanted, and Tony had smirked and replied that he could “really go for a blow job,” and Bruce had taken a beat before walking back to him, very deliberately, and sinking to his knees. [#either leave bruises or just leave; Tony leaves bruises]

That's why Alex doesn't really think before, frustrated and angry, he calls Erik a heartless Nazi when Erik pushes him a little too far. That's why the kids are all shocked when Erik goes black and just leaves. Not just the training room but the mansion, like he'd never even been there.

Charles tracks him down, holed up in a hotel room, where Erik has spent more than a little time hurting himself.

anythingbutgrey: the hunger games -- none of us are going back
She realized a long time ago that she needed both of them. Peeta to keep her together; Gale to understand the wiring. Peeta to talk things through with; Gale to speak to when she didn’t have words. Peeta to remember the Games; Gale to remember everything that came before. Peeta to love her; Gale to know her. Gale to love her too, but Katniss tries not to think about that.[Katniss still sees Gale on TV. Sometimes she wishes he were dead. She knows what to do with the dead.]

not_nearly: Coda by a_short_detour
“I don’t know how much longer I can do this,” Justin hears himself say. “I don’t know whether I can keep pretending not seeing you doesn’t matter.” Because once, remembering what had happened at his prom would have made all the difference, but now he’s an adult and he needs more than an eighteen-year-old with a crush.

Lindsay laughs and pats you on the shoulder. “It’s okay. Brian needs something to keep him young… Especially now that he’s growing up so fast!” she remarks, and you both take a moment to reflect on the past year and all of the remarkable changes that have occurred in all of your lives, particularly Brian’s.

A Dream Deferred - Fic: "And Arthur Runs" (Inception)
In Arthur's dreams, he runs. He can. He doesn’t stumble. He doesn’t hurt. When he nearly catapults himself down a staircase—security only a few steps behind—his arms swing free at his sides. He doesn’t need to clench the railing, to hold himself up with his arms in case his legs don’t obey. He doesn't need to wonder how much time he has until he can't even do that.

sharp_teeth: a tremulous delight
The problem with ships is that they were finite spaces. And if, say, an ensign rose from the dead and tore your Chief Medical Officer's throat out then proceeded to rampage through the ship, well, there were only so many places to put the injured and the dead. And when the injured died and the dead rose, when you were facing down half your crew staggering toward you while dripping black bile and trying to eat you, there were only so many places to hide.
