“What is the music?” Steve asks.

“That? Oh, just the warp and weft of Creation as it births itself, moment by moment,” the pale man says, cocks his head at Steve and smiles a crooked little half-smile, and—

“Teach me,” Steve says, and the man grins.



An urban historical fantasy AU in which Steve Rogers' Da is an immortal sorcerer from another world. This changes some things some things a Hell of a lot, and some things not at all.

Or: sorcery, sex, soldiering, spy craft and shapeshifting.

****
Still a WIP (12 out of 24 chapters, last I checked) but SO good: it hits so many of my narrative and other kinks (excellent historical pre-war fic; crossdressing Steve; capSteve having both big and little forms; interesting explorations of magic).

all the doors fly open - by etirabys
Nyota was the one who broached the subject of bringing in a third.

They sort of derailed each other into discussing and negotiating monogamy until they were both late for work. Kirk's main point of contention seemed to be that he didn't want her to sleep with anyone too boring. Or too interesting. "Well then!" Nyota said, exasperated. She suspected, too, that he'd get much pickier about her partners than he would be about his own, and said so. Kirk then got huffy over her history of almost exclusively taking dark-haired partners.

They stopped arguing to have sex twice, and then they had it figured out by the weekend, just in time to visit a club on Saturday night after some breathless makeup necking. She decided on some dark stockings beneath a pale blouse and skirt, no makeup. She'd assumed that she'd needed to dress up, but Jim was also in sober clothes: plain jeans, warm jacket. "It's pretty much an ordinary bar," he said, "but as far as I know it's still a big BDSM hub- just socializing. We'll look for someone we both like and then see if they like us back."

"Okay," she said. She rested her jaw on his shoulder and frowned at the mirror. "Do you think we look a bit like serial killers?"

He patted her mock-condescendingly on the head.

So the author of "Life skills outside the curriculum" (that fabulous AU where Harry runs away before Hogwarts and grows up on the streets of London) now has completed another fantastic AU where Snape (later aided by Lupin) kidnaps toddler Harry from the Dursleys after seeing his mistreatment, and lots of thing change in really fun and fantastic ways. Warning: be sure you have a whole weekend to devote to this, since it is LONG (341,000 words in total), and the first story ends on a terrible cliffhanger. You can stop after the second (though by then it's 100,000 words in), but you won't want to. Such interesting character development of a lot of minor characters who get to shine in new ways, especially (in the third story) Percy Weasley.

For as long as Steve could remember, all he ever wanted to do was what was right. So when he hears about his father's old regiment being held as POW's by the Nazis, he's determined to put what Doctor Erskine gave him to good use and goes AWOL to rescue them.

But the 107th isn't all he finds there. Deep in the labs is a very unusual prisoner; one with snakes in his hair and a mask nailed to his face. Despite the man's monstrous visage, Steve can't in good conscience leave him to the enemy. That one act of mercy will change his life, the course of the war, and even the future of the world.

"If you wanna feel like a rockstar, you call Bucky Barnes, owner of Shining Star Karaoke and DJ Services. Bucky has gained faithful followers for making people feel like the main event. When different men with the same Dorito physique pop up at his gigs all over NYC, he isn't sure if he’s just a magnet for gym bros or being pranked. Spoiler: The man in the uncanny disguises is on his own mission to sing any time, any way, and any song he wants without being judged as Steve Rogers or Captain America."

Long, sweet AU where Steve is more disconnected from the world than normal--in fact, to sing karaoke he decides he needs an electronic mask--but slowly Bucky (modern Bucky, no Winter Soldier here) convinces him to join the real world. This had a very slow start, and to be honest I almost stopped reading before the reveal of Steve's identity, which would have been a mistake, because everything after that is a really enjoyable romance.

"When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

------

In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war."

Other than the fact that I wanted another 20,000 words of this, this was a really compelling AU in which Steve doesn't get the serum, Bucky goes to war and lives (though loses his arm), and he returns home, but the path of love is not smooth, since this is fairly period accurate. 41,000 words

Better Than To Bend | silentwalrus
In which Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes is tired, hungry and completely failing at not sticking it in the crazy. Also there’s a war going on or something.

aka world war threesome. Fear these queers. //

Bucky spent a good two to three years being the local neighborhood punching bag, at least until his family moved fourteen blocks over to a slightly different neighborhood and he hit a growth spurt that suddenly made him the biggest eight year old around. And Steve was always a skinny bastard but until he got the scarlet fever his heart worked okay, and he capitalized upon those early years of relative good health and mobility by enthusiastically punching the snot out of somebody nearly every damn day.

Only he couldn’t just get into scraps over whose damn marble was whose like everybody else, he had to go and make things fucking - <i>Arthurian</i>. Steve had been left alone with too many library books as a child, many of them completely unsuitable for and in fact highly dangerous to a three foot tall nutcase wielding ten thousand pounds of personality, and as a result Steve knew words like 'equality' and 'justice' and 'moral imperative' and used them in ways no self-respecting eight year old could dream of. //

Excellent Bucky POV threesome fic.

**||** [23.494 words]

Really superb wartime Bucky POV. Part of this really struck me as being <i>Sergeant Barnes</i> but also a Bucky still half-broken by Azzano (and he doesn't realize the half of it at that, although the reader can see the edges) as well as the burgeoning and unholy alliance of Bucky and Peggy wherein Steve is a given for the both of them, Bucky's POV on Steve in particular, and, as mentioned, a good bit of queerness.

And Shadows Will Fall Behind | 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.

The Night War: 60th Anniversary Edition - praximeter (Zimario) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Excerpt from The New York Times "Great Books of the 20th Century" © 2009
Of the literary canon of WWII, the posthumously published The Night War comes second perhaps only to Anne Frank's Diary of a Young Girl or Elie Wiesel's Night. Compiled from Barnes's surviving field journals and published by his siblings in 1947, this classic of wartime literature provides an unvarnished look into the extraordinary tale of Bucky Barnes, Captain America, and the Howling Commandos, the 20th century's greatest heroes."

This is still a WIP, but if you ever read WIPs, start reading this immediately. It is hands down the best WWII story in Captain America fandom, and one of the best Bucky POVs I've ever read. It's basically his wartime journals, and the first five chapters are all set before Steve even arrives, but it's so well written I almost didn't care if Steve ever showed up. It does an amazing job of depicting how horrific and transformative the war was for Bucky even prior to his capture by Hydra. Currently 6 chapters and 23,000 words.

Steve is a many-tentacled octopus-god who really just wants people to stop sacrificing to him and let him be a healer.

The Winter Soldier makes a fine sacrifice, in the waning days of Hydra.

Having found himself adopting a brain-damaged but utterly charming human, Steve sets out to figure out what the hell to do with and for him. Featuring cuddles, building trust, lots of sex (following the trust being built), an over-eager Steve who is only about 60% aware of how humans work and, eventually, a Bucky who won't get out of bed for less than double penetration because his life as the spoiled concubine to an all-powerful god is *exactly* what the universe owes him, thank you very much."

"But you don’t look very filling." The tip of the dragon’s tail twitched. "I don’t suppose you’re a virgin?" he asked hopefully. "I’ve heard they taste better."

Steve gritted his teeth and refused to answer. The dragon could very well find that out for himself. He stared at the dragon. The dragon stared back. Then the dragon got up, turned around, and went back into his cave.

"Well? Come on, tribute."

Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself.

Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

“I may also have borrowed your brandy again,” he admits as well with a shrug. “So I brought you a rock to say sorry.”

Pike finally puts down the PADD he was working on and deigns to meet his eyes.

“A rock,” he deadpans, glancing at the item in question.

“Yes. It’s a piece of Acasta Gneiss, so it’s almost as old as you are.”

Pike glares at him. Jim reminds himself that despite all evidence to the contrary, Pike actually likes him, and therefore wouldn’t kill him where he stood. Probably.

“It’s a metamorphic rock from Canada,” Jim continues, grinning and jigging in his enthusiasm. “It was previously a granitoid, and according to radiometric dating of zircon crystals within it, it formed 4.2 billion years ago. That means it’s the oldest known exposed rock on Earth!”

“Kirk. Get out of my office.”

“But it’s a nice rock!”

“Kirk!”

“Get it? It’s a gneiss rock!”

"Is this Asgard?" Sam asks. "Never thought I'd get to visit if I'm being honest with you."

Thor smiles. "Asgard welcomes you and offers shelter while we plan a new approach for Mentos."

"Thanos," Steve corrects.

"Ah yes, I know, I just like to belittle him." Thor laughs. "He is beneath me."

Bucky wishes he were beneath him.

Oh God.

********

After being rescued by Thor, Bucky is quite taken with the Prince of Asgard. Unfortunately, there are more pressing matters to deal with - namely, kicking Thanos' ass and saving the universe.

Delightful.

“What are you doing?” Yuuri asks, side-eyeing him as he bends his arms behind his back, legs stretched into a perfect split.

“Delivering justice onto this cruel and unusual world.”

“Whoever trashed me on social media is not worth it, Vitya.”

Even Underneath The Waves - leveragehunters (Monkeygreen) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
When the siren came to the merfolk clan in search of a temporary mate she knew she'd bear a daughter, a full-blooded siren, powerful and deadly.

Instead she bore a son.

It was hard to be the son of a siren, a creature of suspicion in the eyes of his father's people, and Steve soon left his father's clan to wander the oceans alone. Alone, that is, until he found a human like he'd never seen. A human dressed all in black, surrounded by blood and death. A human whose heart's desire, buried deep beneath an inhuman shell, was crying out not to kill. Words:20430

“Starfleet?” he asked, surprised by the (heavily redacted) personnel file that hovered on the screen.

“High ranking officer on one of the flagships.”

Jim’s eyebrows raised. He had no idea any Vulcans had pursued that particular line of work. He read the rest of the profile avidly, trying to figure out what about this particular case called for his unique set of skills.

Some simply admired his exotic qualities such as the Human eyes and pink skin. Others preferred his manner, emotive and amiable to a fault, which was refreshing for many during the Burning. However, he was Human and breakable. Fortunately, he had other talents.

After a few pages, while never specifically stated, it was obvious to Jim why he was specifically request for this client. It didn’t come outright as say it, but if one knew how to look for the lack of details...

“He’s only part Vulcan?”

"“Hey Steve, this is Jack Murphy, our other neighbor. Jack, this is Steve.” Steve looked at Sam a little wildly, expecting to see—he didn’t even know, but some reaction other than Sam’s usual easy friendliness. And there was something there, but it was just the twitch of Sam’s mouth that said he found something hilarious and he was trying not to show it. Was this Sam’s idea of a joke, or a prank? Because this guy—behind the glasses and mustache, Steve could have sworn—well, he looked like Bucky."

Really fun.

Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

“That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

“You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

Showing Results for 'Katsuki Yuuri' by Ferrero13
Victor makes it his goal to get Katsuki Yuuri, figure skater, to the first page of Google results. There is no way he could let such a brilliant skater be overshadowed by Katsuki Yuuri, winner of some stuffy academic medal, who is probably 50 and balding.

Or: Yuuri has made a name for himself outside of figure skating, and athletes are slow on the uptake.

"Tentacle Monster Steve is captured by Hydra. They send in the Winter Soldier with a bull whip to break him, but as far as Steve's concerned the most beautiful creature he's ever seen walked in to his cell and started waving a sexy black tentacle at him. It's love at first sight."

Steve really is a tentacle monster in this, and for crackfic it's actually a really good attempt to depict the thought process of a tentacle monster. Definitely dubious consentacles, though.

Chase This Light - Chapter 1 - leveragehunters (Monkeygreen) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
In the modern world, where the creatures of myth live side-by-secret-side with mundane humanity, Steve Rogers is one of the gifted humans who straddles the line between mythfolk and mundane, and he's never told anyone about the day he healed a dragon.

Living in the city in human form, Bucky's managed to shed most of dragon-kind's more unpleasant tendencies, but he's never quite managed to shake the tendency to get attached, especially not when it comes to the healer who saved his life.

When healers start going missing, Bucky will do anything to make sure Steve isn't one of them, something that would be a hell of a lot easier if Steve could stand the sight of him. Of course, Steve might feel differently if he knew Bucky was the dragon he'd saved all those years ago.

Steve got a Twitter – really, Steve was assigned a Twitter – when he joined the Avengers, but he didn’t use it very often. He didn’t care for it, and forgot about it for long periods of time. People followed him, but didn’t expect much in the way of content. 
Then, one day, a tweet popped up from his account.
/You shouldn’t punch Nazis in the face. You will incapacitate a Nazi for longer if you punch in the side of the head or the genital area./

On a Pale Horse | 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 nasty case of the flu knocks her out for the second week of Biological Psychology, and when she comes back, the only person whose name she remembers is Yuuri, a name that stuck in her head because it was completely new to her. Her undergrad didn’t have many international students.
