Follow the Skyline Down - raving_liberal - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
In the wake of an explosion that destroys New York City and leaves an afterimage of the skyline burned into Steve’s retinas, Steve and Natasha walk across the country to find a safe haven, supplies, and—hopefully—allies. Through twisted landscapes and hostile survivors, facing a bleak nuclear winter and wide-scale destruction, Nat and Steve make a promise to each other to survive, to continue. Haunted by memories of the life he was just starting to build with Bucky, Steve finds that promise harder to keep with each passing mile.

Steve’s a patriotic kind of guy, so Bucky doesn’t have to work too hard to convince him to take a road trip after President Roosevelt proclaims 1940 to be “Travel America Year.” Though really, Bucky doesn’t have to work too hard to convince Steve to do just about anything.

“I can’t feel my face,” Steve shivers.

“I can’t feel my left arm,” Bucky says, deadpan. Steve barks out a laugh. It’s all white puffs of vapor in the chilly air.

“This the spot?”

“Nah,” Bucky pants, breath ragged from the long ascent up a mountain. “Almost there.”

Sam Wilson has been witness to a lot of things he wishes he could unsee. Civilian families shot dead in their cars because of miscommunications at checkpoints. Riley’s body spiralling to the ground in a smoke-plumed plummet. His own face in his bathroom mirror after waking up hung-over as hell at two in the afternoon, the day after the anniversary of Riley’s death, year after year after year.

And now, in an abandoned bunker on the outskirts of Boston, a seemingly unremarkable manila folder at the bottom of a filing cabinet.

Walk That Mile - Chapter 1 - purpledaisy - One Direction (Band) [Archive of Our Own]
Harry stares at him, the line of his jaw standing out scarily. “I wanted to get the most out of this trip so I planned it carefully.” His voice is low and steady and somehow that’s worse than when he was yelling. “So far, you’ve put your sticky fingers on everything I’ve tried to do.”

“Sticky fingers?” Louis repeats, offended. “Are you saying it’s my fault you got stung by a bee? Had you been alone you would have gotten halfway to the Dotty Diner and ran the car off the road because of an allergic reaction, so don’t go blaming me.”

“Polk-A-Dot Drive In,” Harry spits before getting out of the car. He slams the door shut with a deafening reverb and Louis rolls his eyes.

He says, “Let’s get out of this town,” and Harry opens his mouth to speak, to decline the offer, but he finds that he can’t tell someone with sparkling eyes like Niall no.

(Or, wherein it’s 1975 and Harry talks out of his ass a bit too much one night, Niall takes his words to heart, and a few weeks later they’re packing up, sneaking out, hitting the highway in the heat and enjoying their last summer of being kids, of having no responsibilities before college starts in the fall all in favor of going out with a bang at a Stones concert in Atlanta, but along the way Harry learns that happiness isn’t measured in time but instead the people you spend that time with, and there’s nobody in the world Harry would rather have at his side than his messy best friend whose eyes shine brighter than all the colors in the world.)

He doesn’t know what he had been expecting out of the road trip itself besides burping contests and too much shitty gas station food with Oli and Stan, but in the brief moment before Harry ambles up his driveway, Louis idly wonders if this is about to become some sort of Gay Coming of Age story.

Maine to California in ten days. In which Zayn’s an open-shirt hippie they meet somewhere in Ohio, Liam’s the pastor’s son running away from home, and Niall’s the number they call on the bathroom wall.

It’s 1978. Harry and Louis are just trying to get to San Fran in time for the Queen concert.

He turns to Harry. “Do you mind, like. Can I take a picture of your driver’s license?”

“Yeah,” Harry says easily, fishing his wallet out and presenting him with a California license to match his California plates. He has got an LA address, Niall notes as he snaps a picture. He’s got longer hair in this picture, waving down to brush his shoulders, a far sight from the short crop he's got now. It looks just as good on him, he notes almost subconsciously.

He texts the picture to Louis as Harry puts the license away, give this to the police if I go missing ..

What have you done Neil?? comes Louis’ answer quickly, but Niall ignores it, looks up to find Harry looking back at him.

“It’ll be fun.”


Harry tilts his head. “I never make promises. You’ll just have to trust me.”

[Or, Harry's a professional cross country road trip driver, and Niall is his latest fare.]

"Do you think we’ll still be doing this next year?” Louis asked suddenly. “Like — after graduation and all?”
“Course we will,” Zayn said. In the moment, it was unfathomable that they wouldn’t. Hell, this was just what they did. They worked stupid jobs. They spent their spare cash on weed and burgers. They put miles on Harry’s car the night before the Fourth of July. They didn’t give voice to the surging, knotty ties that drew the three of them together. “Best friends forever, right?”
“Forever and ever,” Harry swore.

It'd be perfect, he convinces himself. Things with Lou are – well. They're the way they are, and there's no point dwelling on why it's got that way. But he thinks this would help -- not fix them, because they're not broken. They don't need to be put back together, they're just. Out of sync, maybe. It would help. He thinks it would, anyway, if they could just be the two of them again, to be alone together with no outside influences pressing claustrophobically in on them, just for a bit. And driving down an empty highway with nothing else but Louis beside him is the best way to do that that he can imagine.

Compromised - Koren M (CyberMathWitch) - Multifandom [Archive of Our Own]

Clint always thought better while driving, when he wasn’t having to watch so many things quite so intensely. So after replaying what he could remember about the time the world had been tinged blue, which he would only allow while Tasha was awake beside him, he’d finally brought himself back around to their conversation once she’d drifted off to sleep. "I’ve been compromised,” she’d said softly. [in which it's actually explained why she feels as such]

The Sky and Everything Beneath It - jibrailis - The Avengers (2012) [Archive of Our Own]
"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. [Steve goes on a road trip to clear his head, but the other Avengers won't leave him alone.]

She dyes her hair in a motel in St. Louis, leaves rings of red in the sink. "I liked it long," Clint says, tugging on the uneven ends. He suspects she hacked it off with a hunting knife.
