Hello! Just wondering what your guys recent favourite fics have been?
add ur favs my friends
Steve and Bucky end up playing for rival college football teams.
Bucky Barnes made a name for himself as the attorney who could get anyone off, but he still lives by the saying, “Innocent until proven guilty.” Steve Rogers finds himself on trial for multiple homicide but he swears he was only trying to protect a girl. Bucky’s been in this business long enough to know when someone’s innocent, and Steve is innocent. America calls for Steve’s head while Bucky calls for justice. Steve already feels like a monster and Bucky’s worried this guy’s going to lay himself on the sword come his trial. So Bucky offers up another course for punishment.
Turns out, chains and whips really excite Steve.
Newly divorced single dad Steve Rogers moves his kids from the suburbs to Brooklyn to start their new life together, and becomes captivated by the young man who works at the coffee shop downstairs from Steve’s apartment.
Bucky Barnes is 25 years old, working part-time in a coffee shop and still living with his mom. When a handsome single dad in a pinch offers Bucky a job as his nanny, Bucky takes him up on it.
This is a good idea, right?
(AU of the movie The Rebound.)
They’ve decided to start producing Bucky Bears again, now that he’s all shiny and redeemed and fighting for good on this big Avengers misfits team. “He has a little shiny gray arm,” Bucky says, wiggling the stuffed arm in question, one of the tweaks made in the new model. It takes Steve a second to realize that Bucky’s got a small smile on his face, actually looks a little bit proud around the eyes.
Or, Bucky relearns himself and how to be on a team, the rest of the Avengers try to get answers, and everyone watches too much Criminal Minds.
POST-CIVIL WAR: They have to get out of Siberia. They have to get to a safehouse. They have to figure out what comes next – how to live in the world; how to stay out of sight.
I love you like rlb has become a well-known, accepted and valuable component of American vernacular. The meaning of the letters ‘rlb’ is unknown, but is uniformly considered to be a statement of a great romantic love, commitment and sacrifice.
It was Dernier as first said it. Steve never imagined that something like that could have survived the war and all the years in between.
In which Tony goes insane trying to figure out why that phrase affects the Cap so much, Bucky teases the press, and Steve and Bucky love each other like rlb.
It’s wrong, everyone says. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Why would anyone choose that?
That is not her brothers. Sure Stevie is small, only a few inches taller than her, but that’s because he’s been sick so often. And, alright, Bucky could be a bit of a dandy, always fussing about looking his best, but he ain’t no queen.
So then why were they kissing like queers? It isn’t the first time neither. She’s seen first kisses, and she’s seen people that are going steady kiss, and she’s seen husbands and wives kiss.
Bucky and Stevie kiss like husbands and wives kiss.
A life is made up of memories, both the good and the bad. These are Rebecca Barnes’ memories. This is her life.
Magical Realism AU where demons exist and Steven was an angel lured to Lucifer’s side in the war in Heaven. After the war, they threw him down into Hell, no longer an angel, but a demon.
Some humans know demons exist, summoning them out of Hell to use as weapons. Desperate to escape Hell, Steven answers a summons only to find himself bound to serve HYDRA. When they send him to possess Agent Peggy Carter, the encounter doesn’t go as HYDRA expects and Steven is set free to roam the earth.
Sixty years later, frantic to escape another summons, willing to do anything to stay unbound, he takes refuge inside the killer sent to slaughter the summoner. The killer has a metal arm and a mind like broken glass and Steven soon discovers he isn’t the only one hiding inside of it: he finds the man the killer’s body belongs to. Fragile and lost, the more Steven seeks him out the stronger he becomes, until the day he remembers his name: Bucky. Determined to protect him, Steven will do everything in his power to set him free and keep him that way.
(Chronologically, this stretches from before Captain America: First Avenger to a year or so before the first Avengers movie but has spoilers for Civil War.)
[Excerpt from the speech of chief curator Virginia M. Mecklenburg at the opening banquet of the “Captain Steven Rogers: A History Through Art” Exhibit at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, January 5, 2012]
“Welcome to the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It is my pleasure to introduce to you all an exhibit that has been many years in the making. So rarely are we presented with opportunities to join art and history in a union as perfect as this one. Though Captain Steven Rogers sacrificed his life for our country more than sixty years ago, his legacy lives on in history books, documentaries, independent films, and now, thanks to our generous donors, in galleries as well. His artwork provides us with a singular perspective of pre-war American society, as well as a unique window into the soul of the American hero himself….“
Or, the life of Steve Rogers as told by biographers, art historians, tumblr users, a very enthusiastically queer college student, and the artwork of Steve Rogers himself. [Art included]
In 1916, Bucky’s mother arrived in New York with her father, the future owner of one of the most popular speakeasies in Brooklyn. In 1927, Bucky met Steve Rogers and realised there was a world beyond that of favoured son and the clean streets of his neighbourhood.
The Barnes family, 1916-present.
Steve gets money, still won’t move in with Bucky, and somehow totally misses that Queer Brooklyn is an option.
After a long war between their two kingdoms, Prince James of Ireland is promised in marriage to King Alexander of Cornwall. To ensure peace he’s willing to sacrifice his happiness, but his resolve is tested when he and Steve are reunited after many years apart.
A Tristan and Isolde AU.
