Just About Half-Past Ten - rohkeutta - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
But as he reaches Madison Avenue, Stark Tower a mere block away, the skies open with a whoosh, and he barely manages to duck under the construction scaffolding perched over the sidewalk. Thunder rumbles overhead, and Bucky frantically checks every compartment of his bag for an umbrella he knows is there.

It’s not. He does find some loose glitter, though, and a lipstick he wore for Pride and had thought he’d lost, plus a spare Metro Card he can’t remember buying.

He also gets a crystal clear flashback of leaving the umbrella under his desk to dry yesterday morning, and never picking it up again.

****
This is positively charming and fluffy.

The World Well Lost - by AnnaKnitsSpock (Star Trek Reverse Big Bang 2018)
Whatever had brought them to Tarsus IV, Jim and his fellow students were mean, hard, and unhappy. There were plenty of schoolyard fights and plenty of successive detentions spent tilling soil or laying fertilizer—on Tarsus even the detentions were beneficial to the colony’s production. But Jim tried to stay out of trouble: the sooner he could get off this rock the sooner he could try to get out of Iowa. After that, on his own, maybe he could build some kind of life.

And so he kept to himself.

But the older boys were going to eat that new Vulcan kid alive, and Jim just couldn’t let that happen.

The Time is Always Right - Katharoses, seapigeon - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Brooklyn, 1946. Two men profoundly changed by the war cross paths. One's lost his will to fight, robbed by rejection and the loss of his best guy. The other's spoiling for a new battle with the country that still seems to think he's three-fifths of a person. In each other, they find an ally...and maybe something more.
***
Really excellent AU set in the 40s and 50s. Steve never goes to war, Bucky never comes home, but in the late 40s, Steve meets Sam, who is a vet and an attorney. Period typical everything, but really good. 24,000 words.

the cottage by the sea - layersofsilence - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Later, he could not say why he did what he does. His mind is one confused, high-pitched blur, incoherent and blank, but perhaps that is a good thing, because if he’d been thinking he likely would have remained where he was, paralysed by indecision, until his handlers arrived and took him in.

As it is – the Asset stands and leaves. And, eventually, the result is this: a flash in the water and a wet, gleaming head that emerges from the sea, so smoothly that even the water doesn’t seem to realise he’s there until it does, and little waves start flocking around him.

I will leave you high and dry with a junior marketing associate and an intern, Tom. The intern just started last week. He doesn’t even know how to work the copier yet.”

The VP for Public Affairs rubbed his temples. “Sara.”

She slapped a piece of paper onto his desk. “I already wrote my letter of resignation. You know what it says? It says that I cannot possibly do my job if I’m deprived of the best free publicity opportunity that has ever crossed my desk, and that will ever cross it again, in the form of one James Buchanan Barnes and his Supersoldier Fuckability Index.”

What the Water Gave Me - SD_Ryan, hobbitdragon - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
One moment Steve stood listening to Fury talk some nonsense to deceive the bugs apparently everywhere in Steve’s apartment, and the next moment a door opened where there hadn’t been a door before. In the doorway stood a figure, outlined in the fluorescent light pouring out from behind it. Steve made out arms, legs, a head, but around those were....other limbs, squirming and curling. His head ached when he tried to count them, perhaps three, perhaps twenty. His eyes shied away from understanding the sight of them, at once glowing with an oil-slick rainbow of colors while also being the same empty blackness of endless space.

The figure looked hard at Steve, meeting his eyes over a face-mask. The eyes were the same as those awful limbs, simultaneously a bright, mesmerizing gold and also holes into a place with no light at all.

Now the Sons Look For Their Fathers/ But Their Fathers Are All Gone - by Straight_Outta_Hobbiton
There is a lot of crying, a lot of shouting, a lot of red flashing lights and orders and alerts and blood, so much blood. Vulcans crowd the already overflowing Medbay, old and young and even younger, and there is too much going on for Leonard to focus.

He’s tired, and he’s scared, and he’s irritated beyond all reason, and that’s probably why he doesn’t think twice when the little Vulcan boy steps in his path, face screwed up and green with tears and screaming.

He just— picks him up. Scoops the kid off the ground and settles him on his hip, rocking him gently to quiet him before he can renew his screams so close to Leonard’s ear. The actions don’t even register as particularly odd to him, because honestly? It’s been an odd fucking day.

“They really didn’t want the mask to come off.” Hill thumbed through the scans, and pulled out a film that she then handed over to Sam, face mostly expressionless but for the flat line of her pursed lips.

Sam accepted the film and held it up to the light, angling so both he and Steve could see it, squinting at the outline of the Winter Soldier’s skull, and the blips of unnatural white that showed up, God, in his brain, not to mention about half his teeth, plus the mask, with its thin protrusions—

“Those are pins,” Steve realized. He looked over at Hill. “The mask—it’s nailed to his face.”

Captain Cosplay - Ignisentis, alby_mangroves - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
James Barnes loves to cosplay as Captain America, and not just because he's damn good at it, either. No, it's the feeling he gets when he puts on the suit, the light in people's eyes when they see him, the thrill of getting the details just right. It also helped him feel connected to New York after he moved back there for work. Well, cosplay and his landlord,Clint. So when Bucky gets an invitation to his dream cosplay event, hosted by none other than Tony Stark and judged by the Avengers themselves, he knows he has to pull out all the stops and make a new Cap cosplay: the elusive Stealth Suit. Clint turns out to be surprisingly resourceful in that endeavor, and Bucky's more than pleased with how his cosplay turns out. As the day of the event dawns, he can only hope that Steve Rogers feels the same way.

We’re going to have to work on your evasion skills, so for the next five minutes, the floor is lava!” This was met by a sudden spike in both volume and pitch from the small children as they scrambled onto every raised surface they could find and immediately launched themselves right back off.

“I’ve never seen actual lava in my entire life,” Steve said, vaguely offended.

“You got a superhero impersonator for The Falcon’s niece’s birthday party,” Sam said, incredulous. “The Falcon, who is an actual superhero.”

“What are you doing out here?” T’Challa asked.

The lights from the Jabari Tribe’s fastness were blinking on behind his sloped shoulders, winking bright against the snow and stone, too far away for definition. T’Challa was wrapped in a red patterned shawl over black robes, apparently impervious to the cold. M’Baku knew better. The fanged necklace T’Challa wore. His bracelet, his shoes. Rampant technology. M’Baku looked away.

“I come here to think.” M’Baku waved a hand over the ice.

T’Challa looked from the light globe at M’Baku’s hip to the small cave beyond, hollowed out by hand into an uneven dome, at the bedding, the books. At the staff hung over the doorway, a tooth of vibranium cut along the seam, unadorned. “Alone?”

“I don’t need guards to feel confident. Your Highness.” Besides, M’Baku was wearing his armour, his staff close by. //

Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

(A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

"I won’t be with you.
You’ll look at a stranger standing in my place
With cleaner hands and a clearer view to guide you to the final turnings
And all you’ll want is to stop in the ash-choked dark where last you saw me.
But leave behind the severed fragments of your heart, go on a little further
Take that one clear sight which is the most that I can win you
With this my accident of poetry
Let me write you a way out of the dark
By telling you that I knew this time as well
The bargain I was making
As when I bought my life with death."

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.

By comparison, being roommates with James Buchanan Barnes, formerly the Winter Soldier, has been a vast improvement. Notwithstanding the part where people openly take pictures of Barnes (and consequently Peter) on campus. Or random people poking Peter in the back during lectures to hiss, are you really the Winter Soldier’s roommate at him. Or remnant HYDRA operatives kidnapping Peter in order to lure the Winter Soldier out (which, really, is too many levels of stupid for Peter to handle).

"You know you're not supposed to call him the Winter Soldier any more, right?" Peter says, while they handcuff him to a pipe. A pipe. "Also this whole thing is kind of messing up my schedule. My two overdue papers won't exactly write themselves."

The Exchange - by Anonymous - The Murderbot Diaries - Martha Wells
Murderbot was somewhat surprised at the length of time reading through the entire archive of derivative works, and commenting on several of them, had taken. It was almost twelve standard hours before it surfaced from the feeds to see a GCD servitor waiting at the door to the entertainment cubby.

“Oh for—“ Murderbot began. “Just come in.”

The door slid open, and the servitor buzzed around Murderbot like an excited insect.

“Isn’t it great?” asked ShipShip. “I have to do this stupid run every year, and the only thing that keeps me sane is the thought of the fan-feeds that my passengers will bring with them. I came up with the idea of the exchange one year, because it seemed to make everyone happy.”

Murderbot sat on the divan. “So they swap stories.”

“Yep.” The ship’s mech nudged Murderbot’s arm, as if it wanted a cuddle. Murderbot ignored it. It sat in Murderbot’s lap, anyway, and weirdly, Murderbot didn’t feel inclined to move it. “You should join and write a story. Or ask for one.” Impossibly, because it was a servitor, it gave Murderbot a coy look. “You could ask for one about that biomech you’re obsessed with, and how it gets adopted by the humans in the rock farms on the far side of the moon.”

Things you're not supposed to be: leading a tiny, stubborn child home because you found him all alone in a park and you can't just leave him there.

Things that aren't supposed to happen if you're a vampire: running into the same child—except the years are passing and he's growing up—over and over again.

Other things that aren't supposed to happen: Steve Rogers remembering who you are even after you've fogged his mind so he forgets. But Bucky should have known from the moment he met Steve that he wouldn’t be able to make Steve do anything he didn't want to—including making Steve forget him.

********
Remarkably sweet for a vampire AU.

Now Bucky just had to figure out how Steve had remembered him...and why he was so happy about it.

The Soldier and the Parade - stele3 - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
This is an AU that assumes Bucky Barnes escaped from HYDRA long before Steve Rogers was dug up from his iceberg.

It also assumes that Bucky Barnes is a huge fan of My Chemical Romance.

This is dedicated to all my bandom bros. I love you all and I have no fucking shame. Words:49308

"Or, the one where Fenris is closer to his mythological origins but, if everyone's honest, takes after Uncle Thor more than anyone, and Mummy's Dead is the worst game he and Loki have ever played."

In the dead of the night, a man pulls over for a hitchhiker.

Interesting AU where Steve never joined SHIELD (which had a lot of real world consequences), and several years later he picks up a hitchhiking Winter Soldier.

The Truth May Vary - mugwort_and_myrrh - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“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.

Kirk and the crew of the starship Enterprise have tracked him to the Klingon home wold, Kronos, where they have threatened to unleash the experimental torpedoes Admiral Marcus sent with them unless the man surrenders. That man, Steve Rogers, has other ideas.

Seige Perilous by concernedlily
It was a normal Friday night: Harry had charmed open the locked gates of Hyde Park and was carrying on an enjoyable argument with one of the ancient ashes there, a discussion that had been going on since it was a mere sapling.

(A lovely story, and weirdly timely for me given my recent wander through Hyde Park. Or maybe that was part of the attraction. The reveals are well paced, enjoyed this story)

"Vesemir wasn’t sure what he’d done to deserve any of this."

Authors Notes: So I asked for prompts on DW and potted_music said "Geralt/Emhyr AU in which Emhyr is a witcher too" and I was all lol, how on earth could Emhyr have ended up as a witcher, and then this story happened."

Astolat writes and I read. I was just wishing she would write another Witcher story, and then she released this and it is marvellous.

The secret language of plants - Endrina - Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling [Archive of Our Own]
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.

It was "Witch Weekly", of all people and organizations, the first to notice and comment on The Boy Who Lived’s absence from the ranks of first years at Hogwarts. The magazine went on to elucubrate that the young hero was studying at a foreign school, possibly Beauxbatons or Holzschuhkäse.

// This is excellent

[I popped over to think about bookmarking it and read two long chapters before I surfaced again. Harry runs away from the Dursley's before Hogwarts comes calling. He's been living on the streets of London for about 10,000 words covering his early teens.]

Winter Gorgon - Chapter 1 - Quarra - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

Best Girl - orphan_account - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"An epic romantic smutfest centered around the idea that Steve is, always has been, and always will be Bucky's best girl. But, you know, not an actual girl."

Not genderswap or trans identities, just lingerie and some light feminization. HOT.

Deep Cover - SoftObsidian74 - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
"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.

Demobilization - 743ish, sallysparrow017 - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"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

"Bucky Barnes has spent his whole life in a state of mild hypothermia. Steve Rogers has spent the last 70 years in the ice. The two things aren’t related until, suddenly, they are. Shrunkyclunks soulmate AU (AKA the awkward bb au)."

Wow, this was really tailor-made for my id. 75,000 words of emo porn, by which I mean a modern AU Bucky finding out he's soulbonded to Steve, which means he can help Steve through all the traumas of waking 70 years in the future, followed by a LOT of slowly rising sexual tension as shy virginal Bucky gradually overcomes his shyness with the help of endlessly patient Steve. Yumm. There is a tiny bit of actual plot/angst halfway through, but mainly it's just a wonderfully indulgent romp.
