Stucky Fic Rec List
So I came to the realization I have like six million fics bookmarked, and I should A) have them organized and B) make other people read them, so in no particular order, here are some EXCELLENT fics you should read. *this list will probably happen in multiple installments because there are SO MANY*

Winter Soldier set to stand trial for Washington D.C. massacre and treason apne.ws/1og6SWE
Okay but seriously if you haven’t read this one where have you been? It’s the winter soldier trial told through articles and social media snippets it’s INCREDIBLE.

Steve looks for Bucky, Bucky finds Steve, Steve tries desperately to put Bucky back together. Bucky tries desperately to let him. (Spoilers for Winter Soldier.)
This takes place right after the events of the winter soldier, and it’s essentially all about Bucky’s recovery. The characterization is fabulous, and if you like it, there’s a sequel called Catenary Chain that’s also wonderful

Steve Rogers runs a small bakery in Brooklyn with his friend Peggy. When his neighbours Natasha and Sam announce that they are getting married, Steve is immediately commissioned to make the wedding cake. He’s more than thrilled, but gets more than he bargained for when asked to co-ordinate with Bucky Barnes - Natasha’s highly attractive and charming wedding planner
I CANNOT EMPHASIZE ENOUGH HOW CUTE THIS FIC IS.

“Dr. Foster, this is a tower full of highly trained soldiers, spies, and geniuses. If we can’t track down and subdue a frith—um, small Asgardian mammal, then nobody can,” Steve says. He tries to look reassuring. It must not be working. She’s still looking around like it might pop out at any moment.
“Frithrkottr,” she says. She takes a deep breath and tucks some errant strands of hair behind her ear. “It’s furry. Kitten-sized.”
“A real cause for panic,” he says, trying to make her smile.
She doesn’t look calmed.
This fic has everything, steve staring at bucky’s ass, drug induced snuggles, and a small fluffy thing that looks like a guinea pig except it’s from Asgard.

It all starts because Steve is too dumb to handle his smartphone.
A wrong number AU in which Bucky Barnes doesn’t enter Steve’s life (meaning: Bucky wasn’t born until the eighties, but Steve is still Captain America) until Steve accidentally dials the wrong number. Wherein there is a lot of texting, some advice via Natasha and Darcy, a bit of pining, and a first date in an amusement park. Oh, and on top of being a disabled veteran, Bucky is a professional catwalker. Literally.
I repeat: Bucky is a professional cat walker. He has a card and everything

Steve looked good, He looked hale and hearty and uninjured in his leather jacket, too-tight shirt, and jeans. He got off the motorcycle and his movements were graceful and fluid - no obvious signs of injury. He took off his helmet and –
Steve had a beard.
Bucky’s mechanical hand spasmed oddly.
This is legit the funniest fic ever, and one of my personal favorites.

SHIELD discovers that HYDRA took a DNA sample from Captain America and a DNA sample from the Winter Soldier and tried to breed a perfect supersoldier. Steve and Bucky suddenly find themselves the parents of a three-year-old boy who won’t speak.
THIS IS MY FAVORITE FIC OF ALL TIME AND THE KID IS THE CUTEST. Also check out more stuff by this author when you’re done, they’ve written a lot of great stuff.

Steve Rogers isn’t about to let some frat boy jerk like Bucky Barnes show him up, even if it means having to kick Brock Rumlow in the balls.
This fic is so great. Like it’s just so much fun and bucky and steve are cute lil college kids and I always imagine it’s my school, becuase I go to a small liberal arts school like bucky and steve do in this fic. It’s part of a series and you should absolutely binge read it all in one night and not sleep like I did.

Modern day au where Steve Rogers is un-serum’d and is looking for work. When Tony and Bruce save his ass from certain-broken-nose, Steve finds himself coaxed into a world of tattoos, science, and a guy named Bucky Barnes.
Bucky is a tattoo artist, clint and natasha own a diner with a lil daughter named bella what more do you want?

Bucky finds a popular sex toy modeled on Captain America’s own anatomy. Well, isn’t this just perfect? Because even after all this time, he still hasn’t seen Steve’s supersoldier cock. But apparently in this day and age anyone with $29.95 can get a decent replica. The unfairness of this is of galactic proportions.
This sounds like pure smut but it’s actually a romantic comedy and it’s absolutely hysterical.

“So, sugar, are you rationed?”
Bucky Barnes works at Lucky Leo’s, a 40’s-themed diner in Brooklyn, and he hasn’t seen Steve Rogers for nine years. When they meet again, Bucky barely recognizes the guy who used to be his best friend.
I have worked in food service for too long and somehow this managed to thaw my cold dead cynical heart.

Steve’s rarely been touched in a way that didn’t equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn’t want.Except…he did. He just didn’t know how.Until he finds a flyer for a local “affection and intimacy services” program.In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.
Fun fact: there’s a recipe coda to this fic and I made apple bread from scratch and my friends were in love with it and asked me where I got the recipe and I had to say “uhh a fanfic”

Bucky’s a beat-up rentboy in need of a place to stay.
This is shockingly not porny and altogether an action packed feel good fic. Also Bucky is super sassy and Steve pays him 2000 dollars to sleep on his couch.

Bucky Barnes never remembers who he is. That doesn’t stop him from falling in love with Steve Rogers.

He knelt, touched his fingers to forehead, chest, left shoulder, right, and said more words than the soldier could ever remember speaking together.
They came in a well-worn fluent rush, easier than any post-mission report: “Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been a long time since my last confession.”
This fic is honestly so beautiful, and full of feelings.

Bucky’s part of a prestigious teacher education program, but he’s not doing very well. The headmaster, Nick Fury, decides he needs a summer job as an au pair to decide if teaching is really what he wants. Bucky goes to live with Captain Steve Rogers and his brood of children. (Sound of Music AU)
All you need to know about this fic is that Tony is basically Liesel, and Nick Fury is basically the nun that sings about following every rainbow until you find your dream.

It’s Steve’s second summer working at Disney World when he meets Prince Charming (aka: Bucky Barnes, college kid from Brooklyn whose ass looks absolutely devastating in his Prince Charming slacks) and maybe starts to feel a little Disney magic in his heart.
BUCKY IS PRINCE CHARMING WHAT MORE DO YOU PEOPLE WANT.
Okay that’s all for now! Enjoy the wonderful fics! There will be more recs to come because I read too much goddamn fanfiction.
