A contradiction: His heart and respiratory rate increase in small dark spaces, but at night he longs for the cold confinement of his cryostasis chamber.

Sometimes he thinks till the end of the line till the end of the line till the end of the line until he falls asleep and dreams of Steve. Sometimes there’s an answering echo of numbers and a name, but neither the numbers nor the name apply to him anymore.

Sergeant Barnes, serial number three-two-five-five-seven (is that all of it or part of it? He can’t remember) is dead. He isn’t the Asset; he was, but he no longer is. He didn’t know who Bucky was, but now he does and he doesn’t.

He is Bucky, but he isn’t.

Mission Parameters - what_alchemy - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
The soldier does not find the Mission. The soldier finds a tow-headed white child, aged approximately five years, unconscious and naked amid the empty Captain America uniform lying charred and bloody in the middle of what used to be a battleground. The soldier finds an expanse of bruised flesh and stubborn cowlicks that shine through the fog in his head.

The soldier lifts the child up and slings it under one arm before running.

Modern AU crossover with The Walking Dead.

The first walker they killed was wearing a sheriff’s uniform. It knocked Porthos to the ground, scrambling and snarling and snapping its teeth, raining pieces of God-knows-what down upon his chest. Porthos shoved it upwards with a shaking hand forcefully jammed up under its jaw.

“Shield your face!” Aramis shouted, panicked but still raising his gun with all the steady aim his training instilled. As quickly as Porthos turned his head and closed his eyes, Aramis put a bullet through the walker’s skull and raced over to heave the corpse off of his friend.

“So much for serve and protect,” Porthos growled.

So he suppressed it always, at first flinching back from what he meant into what he should be, and after a while covering the constant moments of disorientation seamlessly. It was tiring.

Talking with the Voices - Fic: And Time Yet
They go for food, walking through destruction to get there and being stared at the whole way, which Natasha blames on their uniforms. Bruce is wearing normal clothes, but he’s filthy and his outfit looks as borrowed as it is. Tony, in his own clothes, that were dirt (if not sweat) free beneath the suit, wouldn’t stick out if only he weren’t Tony Stark. Steve looks the least uncomfortable about the eyes on them and Clint the most, neither of which surprises her.

Ask Tony how he's doing on any given day and he'll either give you a somewhat puzzled, somewhat wary look, or he'll smile brightly, instantly lighting up. Either way, the answer is the same. Fine, I'm fine.

Most of the time, it's even true. [Tony is doing just fine. Until he's not. Steve notices.]

MAY CONTAIN H/C CONTENT - Fic: Second Chance (Avengers, G)
None of them see what actually occurs when it happens, because Clint is where Clint always is in a battle: up high, directing, and picking their opponents off. It's only when the arrows stop flying, when his voice stops piping into their ears, laying out everything for them, that they realize something has gone down.

Natasha barks, "Barton!" and there's a response, a somewhat wobbly, "Who-- Who is this??" in a voice that does not sound even just a little bit like Barton's. [Clint gets de-aged; Avengers assemble to take care of him]

All her life Pepper has liked, wherever possible, to sleep in the dark. It took her a good few months to get used to the glow of Tony's arc reactor. She knows it took him just as long. And in the aftermath of New York, of his stupid self-sacrificing suicidal stunt with a nuclear bomb, she has never seen anything as lovely as that unwavering blue light painting (his face) (her own skin) (lighting his eyes) (lighting her face, her face he loves to watch when they make love) the walls and ceiling of their bedroom.

Held In Our Hands - icarus_chained
Robotics was not Bruce's field. Not by a long shot. But even he understood the sheer depth of complexity JARVIS must have, to be able to do the things he did. To be able to register, understand, and formulate plans for the environment around him. To be able to conceptualise human thought-processes, emotions, foibles, to a level that the AI could interact with them on a footing indistinguishable from a human's. To be able to react with a sense of personhood, identity and ego that, to be honest, almost matched Tony's own, if in a vastly more understated manner. [Bruce, JARVIS and Tony, and what power means.]

The Evaluation Process - sinemoras09
"This is the only way I can protect you," Tony says. "If people think you're human, they won't hunt you down. They won't tear apart your insides just to see how you work. Because trust me when I say this, they're too stupid to figure it out. They'd only break you."

Skynet. HAL 9000. VIKI. Iconic AIs, menacing and threatening toward human kind. JARVIS was bigger than all of them. His eyes swing back up to the monitor, and at the long, drawn lines of Tony's face.

""Just think of it as a way to get around," Tony says, quietly. "See the world on your own terms: my last gift to you." [Tony dies. JARVIS tries to cope.]

“Put me down so I can fucking see you, and pull up your fucking face mask.” Clint yells, exasperated. [Clint blames this solely on R&D. You think they'd remember to make his hearing aids freaking waterproof. Idiots.]

In a sadistic sense, watching Tasha and Clint be parented by his parents was the best birthday present Phil had ever given himself.

He watched his on-screen counterpart rescue Bucky, flirt with Peggy far more deftly than he ever actually had, and fight a load of Nazis and HYDRA agents. There was a scene where he punched a man with a Hitler mustache, probably a nod to the old touring-show days, and an imaginary meeting between him and Patton that never really happened. Steve got so wrapped up in the action sequences that they were in the final climactic battle to take the last HYDRA base before he noticed Natasha had come in and joined them, quietly, sitting crosslegged on a nearby chair. [Steve Rogers is no stranger to the silver screen.]

"Join the party," Clint says. "Aside from One-eyed Jenny, we're the best ride in town." He's commandeered the keys for the next leg of the journey, forcing Steve and Bruce to squish in the backseat while he drives and Natasha gets shotgun. Not fair, Steve thinks, but Clint and Natasha united is a front that none of them can defeat. Clint turns the radio to classic rock, and they listen to Led Zeppelin while Clint squeals the Corolla's wheels on the tarmac.

And yet he can't quite imagine it. He wants to, but the idea of Thor and Stark and Rogers and Romanoff and Barton and Banner, this ill-assorted group of individuals, most of whom had no concept of team work, collaborating on something like this — not saving the world, just buying trading cards for the agent who barked orders down the comms at them — is stretching his imagination beyond its elastic limit.
