Oh my goodness I have SO MANY FOR YOU!
Angels With Dirty Faces
“I wish I had a million dollars,” Steve said. “You could sleep for a week, and then we’ll go on a trip somewhere.”
“A million dollars? That’s one heck of a trip.”
“Okay, smart guy, what would you do if you had that kind of money?”
When Steve’s mother is diagnosed with tuberculosis, Bucky makes it his mission to take care of him after she’s gone. They both scrape to make ends meet in the wake of her death, but Bucky always makes sure he scrapes just a little harder. That’s what good friends do. (Historical and Period detail!!! Oh man this one is so wonderful, please do yourself a favour and read it!)
Bucky takes Steve for a drive. It’s the 1960s, the Chevy is a piece of art, and anything could happen. (im complete fucking trash for this fic its ridiculous i even made a fanmix seriously when will my soul be free)
Into That Good Night
Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world’s end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what’s left of mankind towards the exit.
But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past. (aka the fic that caused my death. it destroyed me)
I’m Not Sorry (and neither is he)
Bucky wakes up slowly.
Takes a long breath in.
Smiles without opening his eyes. (its so cute! my heart!)
Nice Work If You Can Get It
Bucky Barnes and his best pal Steve Rogers stumble into a situation that leaves Bucky feeling tongue-tied, out of his element, and convinced that Steve—Steve!—has more experience with the ladies than he previously let on. It’s terrible.
(Pre-serum Steve, pre-war Brooklyn, befuddled Bucky, and showgirls, for your pleasure.) (once again PERIOD DETAIL!!! I love that shit)
Ships at a Distance
The year was 1930. Peggy Carter was on a one-woman mission to uncover the truth of Franklin county, the moonshine capital of America.
Meanwhile, Steve Rogers was fighting to keep the family diner running after his mother’s passing. The last thing he wanted was for someone to poke their nose into his and Bucky’s side business. Times were hard. They needed to make a dollar same as anybody else.
This was a story about the small people, who unknowingly propped up the Broadwalk Empire. ( Historical and Period Detail!!!!!!! what can I say I’m a sucker for it. i love this fic and so few people have read it! )
Take A Low Ride
When their dates ditch them at the funfair, Bucky talks Steve into riding the Tunnel of Love to cheer him up and get them out of the rain. Of course, Bucky’s got an ulterior motive
Take Me To Church
If Bucky’s smile was legendary in Brooklyn, it was because even in the middle of the Depression, it was still proudly attached to Bucky’s lips, night and day.
What the good people of his neighborhood didn’t know was the reason why he was always smiling. (i just really like this one ok?)
He told his ma that one day he would have a good job, a real job where he could wear a nice suit, and a swell house, and Steve would live there with him, and he’d take care of him always, the way his dad took care of his ma. And his ma got a strange look on her face. She hugged him tightly and told him not to think about things like that, it wasn’t right for a boy his age to think about it.
Bucky wondered why.
Bucky Barnes has always loved Steve Rogers. This is the story of how that love grew. (The historical accuracy is amazing, the writing is great, I just love reading this one it’s really tenderly written and it’s a joy to read)
Through the Open Window
Steve Rogers gave up on joining the army and worked for Stark Industries writing policy letters by hand. It’s a dull job, right up until the office across the fire escape is given to an attractive stranger with one arm and no personal boundaries.
Was going to be PWP but then there was like… a little plot? Steve and Bucky if Steve & Bucky never met as kids, I guess. (the period detail in this one is great, its on its way to more popular but I think more people should read it)
(and heres where I would have put The Tower by saralucielle if it hadn’t been deleted. If any of you have a pdf saved by any chance please let me know, i adored this fic)
A scifi AU with a fascist police state, a genetic caste system, a skinny young man who should not be alive for reasons too numerous to list, and the partially brainwashed assassin who shows up at his door in the middle of the night to send the world crashing down around his ears. ( nowhere near enough people have read this, it’s a terrifying take on eugenics based dystopia novels from the 30′s, with a really different take on the serum and some seriously cool worldbuilding)
