Ain’t No Grave (Can Keep My Body Down) by spitandvinegar  

It’s six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.

For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don’t. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It’s very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.

I AM SORRY FOR SHOOTING YOU.

Steve sits down hard on the steps.

cascades. by orange_crushed

“Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

“Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

If They Haven’t Learned Your Name by silentwalrus (WIP)

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.”

Steve just wanted a job. He wasn’t expecting a marriage proposal. And he certainly wasn’t expecting to accept.

Schrödinger’s Romance by The_StonedSoldier

“It could be a relationship, it could not be. You can assume either until you see for sure the results.“We all know those moments. Those moments when your family all gathers around you and asks "So, do you have a boyfriend yet?”. Bucky knows these moments all too well and, quite frankly, he’s sick to death of them. Unfortunately, being a 21 year old college student makes it harder for him to come up with excuses, and with Christmas coming up he needs to think of a way out fast. A chance encounter with a stranger through an old library textbook could just be the kind of miracle he needs to make it through the holidays with his last shreds of sanity intact.

Thawed Out by auburnnothenna (auburn), eretria

He’s not the Asset. He’s not the Winter Soldier. But neither is he Bucky Barnes. With the help of Steve, Sam and the Avengers, James takes the long, slow road to recovery. Nothing is as easy as either of them thought it would be.

To Be Vulnerable Is Needed Most Of All by perfect_plan

Steve is a shy comic book artist and meets his new neighbour, Bucky Barnes.

In which there are awkward longings, meddling best friends, comic conventions, heartache, lemons, video games, dorkiness, dancing and two cute boys.

to memory now I can’t recall by Etharei

While on a mission storming a HYDRA facility, James Buchanan Barnes touches one of the many strange alien devices collected by the Red Skull. He does this, in fact, twice— in the past, and in the future.

Next thing he knows, Bucky Barnes is opening his eyes in the 21st century, which is full of great gadgets and coffee, and at least includes his old pal Steve. (And, inexplicably, a different Stark.) Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier finds himself in the middle of World War Two, helping Captain America hunt down HYDRA (which is at least familiar), pretending to be Bucky Barnes (which is not), and figuring out the very noisy group of soldiers who call themselves the Howling Commandos.

War, Children by Nonymos

After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.

Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.

End of the line    by Kamryn

Steve is 16 and thought be might as well start acting like it, so he told his mom he would go to the bank himself. Only maybe it wasn’t the best day to go to the bank. The infamous bank robbers “the Avengers” decided to rob that bank and when they left, they decided to take Steve with them.

Steve is trying to have fun at prom with a group of his friends, he really is. But he can’t help feeling it should have been more. Then he runs into James Buchanan Barnes and his night takes an unexpected turn.

The Vigilante Pranksters of Brooklyn High by Rainy_dearest

Bucky Barnes believes that there are only two good things about high school.
One of them is Steve Rogers, the tiny punk who picks fights, steals library books, and skips school to go to protests. The other is Captain America, Brooklyn High’s mysterious vigilante prankster. No one knows who he is; they only know that if you shove one kid into a locker, you’ll find 20 water balloons in yours the next day.
Bucky has spent the majority of his high school career trying to stay out of trouble, and he’s about to risk it all for a sincere boy with a secret identity.

Slashing Lines by thecommodore_squid

The bottom line was that Bucky had two perfectly decent friends and he did not need anyone else ever.

Definitely.

Especially not the new kid.

The really fucking hot new kid.

A Pretty Boy with a Bird Tattoo  by Kryptaria, rayvanfox   

Bucky Barnes is the wholesome, handsome boy next door, complete with the engineering major and the beloved younger sister (or three).

Steve Rogers is the punk artist loner with an unkindness on his arm and a never-ending fight against the world. His best friend, Natasha, is best left unmentioned, though there are rumors that if you kiss the Black Widow’s spider, she’ll give you a tattoo for free. But she never said where or what.

They shouldn’t work together, until they do.

The Murder Ballads  by BetteNoire (WeAreWolves)

Something wicked is coming for Steve Rogers. Luckily for him, something even more wicked stands in its way: the unrepentant, unbroken Bucky Barnes.

A murder-mystery/action thriller with violence, magic, and several big MCU guest stars.

Lucky Seven by BetteNoire (WeAreWolves)                

Captain America trashes his motorcycle a lot. Tony says he’ll fix it, then never gets around to it and just buys him a new one. Steve, the Depression-era kid, can’t stand the waste and goes looking for somewhere near him in Brooklyn where he can get his bike fixed. That’s how he finds Red Star Bike Repair, and the hot Russian-immigrant bike racer who runs it: all long hair and muscles and tattoos. And for the first time since he woke from the ice, Steve feels a connection to someone; a comfort in the other man’s silences and his space, an attraction in his sheer skill at racing. But James Barnes isn’t exactly who he seems…

Snake Eyes by boopboop   

There’s a lot of expectation attached to Steve Rogers’ name. It’s taken him years to prove his own worth - that he’s made it so far in the USNA on his own merit and not just because of his father. He’s close though - there are only a few more months until he graduates and gets to stand on his own two feet. It’s taken a lot of effort to get there, and a lot of sacrifices.

Bucky’s beyond the point of expectation. When your father and grandfather have both been President - and your mother nurses political ambitions of her own - brilliance is a foregone conclusion. He’s just counting down the final months of his confinement to the glass cage of the White House and he’s determined to put that whole world behind him.

But as the days standing between them and their dreams dwindle, Steve comes to realize he might have made one sacrifice too many, and Bucky learns that his freedom comes at a cost he’s never going to be able to pay.

My Arms Were Made To Hold You by portraitofemmy and rainbow_marbles

Tired of being kept awake at night by a screaming baby, Bucky decides to take matters into his own hands. Mostly he wants a good night’s sleep, but what he gets is beautiful baby boy with big blue eyes, a lonely father trying to move on from tragedy, and a chance at a family he never expected to have.

Penguins in New York making nests by Songstone

Bucky’s life has changed a lot in the eight years that he’s spent away from Brooklyn. In Russia he had found love and lived a happy life, until tragedy stole his wife from him. Now, with a three-year-old daughter to care for on his own, Bucky makes the decision to get back to his roots in the hopes of building a better future for his child.

Our story finds him adjusting to his life in Brooklyn. Life seems to be going well - until it gets better. Steve Rogers re-entering Bucky’s life is just the right kind of surprise. There is a new found attraction between the two that is near-immediate, and the possibility of a happy relationship is there. Bucky isn’t about to ignore it, especially when Steve makes it known that he very much adores Bucky’s ballet dancing, penguin-obsessed , daughter and wants to include her in his life as well.

However, feeling abandoned after Bucky took Vanya to the US, Aleksander Lukin - Vanya’s Grandfather - wants her back in Russia and will stop at nothing to see her ‘home’ again. In the midst of an international custody battle that holds the possibility of beginning another World War, Bucky needs to keep his wits about him and keep his family together.

Unwanted Celebrity by @kryptaria​ and @zooeyscigar

Fifteen years ago, a skinny kid from Brooklyn went to an arts summer camp, where he met child movie star Jimmy Barnes. Their unlikely friendship faded as the years passed. But now, a threat to Barnes’ career brings Steve back into his life, in the most unexpected of ways.

Or, the one where Bucky is a smooth celebrity, right up until Steve the snarky photographer shows up, and Bucky’s whole world gets blown to pieces.

Past Lives by @pesmenos

Steven Grant Rogers: Male, 32 years old, former Army Captain, present day art professor at NYU.

But Bucky’s dead. He died in action during the Iraq war- didn’t he?

It’s shaping up to be the best summer ever until Steve’s mom makes things weird by telling them that they’re gay for each other. All of a sudden Steve is full of strange thoughts about his best friend, and Bucky will barely speak to him. All Steve wants is to make things right again.

In which Steve Rogers gets punched a lot and Bucky Barnes is getting a little sick of it.

Artistic Licence 

Steve Rogers swamps his figure in large leather jackets, starts fights with people twice his size and can be heard several metres away as he stomps down the corridor in his heavy boots. He also has a soft spot for pretty paintings of old couples sat in parks.

Bucky, on the other hand, has a soft spot for Steve.

Hurry Up We’re Dreaming

Steve and Bucky always meet up during their free third period so they can hang out (read: make out) behind the bleachers on the soccer field. They used to go to the football ones, but too many people had the same idea as them and they preferred the empty, if seriously worse-for-wear, soccer bleachers.

But today, Bucky doesn’t greet Steve with his usual bruising kiss, instead sweeping him into a gentle hug and holding him there for a minute. Now, Steve’s never one to complain about hugs, but he would infinitely prefer to already be sucking on Bucky’s tongue by now (he’s got his inhaler ready and everything, just in case he needs it) so he stands on his tiptoes and tries to bring their mouths together, but Bucky just holds him away gently.

Some of these are with one or both ace, but most are just cute as heck/good as heck.

I basically am just frantically piling my whole bookshelf into you hands stuttering glowing recommendations right now:

A Shoebox of Photographs with Sepia-Toned Loving

Steve, and Bucky—

It’s kind of complicated.

Achromatic

The world doesn’t particularly need saving. The new SHIELD and its few, trusty associates are well on their way to whittling down the list of known HYDRA bases worldwide. No power hungry scientists have made unfortunate discoveries recently, to anyone’s knowledge. Nor have there been any alien encounters in three hundred and nineteen days.

For the first time in months, everything is more or less okay. Except it isn’t.

The Amazing Adventures of Bucky Barnes 

Steven G. Rogers writes and illustrates the Amazing Adventures series, a set of super obscure children’s books about superheroes. Bucky’s daughter thinks these books are the best thing to grace the earth since hot chocolate. Unfortunately, they’re nearly impossible to find. But when Nat asks for a signed copy of the new book for her birthday, Bucky promises to do whatever he can to make it happen.
It all sort of escalates from there.

Breadth Requirements

Steve’s never met his Psych TA in person, but he’s a little obsessed with their snarky, flirty email conversations.

Steve’s never made any headway with the hot guy who sits in front of him in Psych, but he’s a little obsessed with his mouth.

Cleave 

“Do you think they had him severed?” Steve’s throat seizes on the word. “Bucky’s dæmon. She was big enough that we would have seen her if she was there. If she was still—”
“There are other ways,” Natasha says faintly.

Cross this River to the Other Side

Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.

So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.

In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.

UPDATE: @esfinleo came in and gave us a heads up the the author said on their blog that they were raising the rating next chapter! Its fine and awesome up to chapter 22 but it may become sexually explicit in the future! I’m leaving it here but just so you know)

I Love You Like RLB 

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.

I Think I’m In Love 

Steve craned his head towards Bucky and watched as his eyes fluttered closed. A tiny smile played at the other’s lips and all Steve wanted to do was lean over and trace their outline. Instead, Steve turned away again, idly massaging his chest and pulling his blanket tighter over himself as his traitorous heart beat faster.
“Nah,” he said, licking his dry lips and huffing quietly. Behind him, Bucky was already half-way to snoring. “I just got a shitty heart, s'all.

If Only You Could See Me (for the Pie that I am)

In which Steve is the proud owner of Frost, a semi famous local bakery in DC and despite the overwhelming insistence that it’s about time he start dating, Steve swears up and down he isn’t ready for that. Or as of recently, just doesn’t have the time because of Mr. Barnes – the highly demanding wedding planner on the phone who keeps asking for nearly impossible deliveries and maybeSteve would like to personally strangle him. Maybe.

It’s Just Temporary (rated M but not explicit. in face most of perfect_plan’s stuff if like that. They’re an awesome writer and they focus on plot and angst/fluff, not smut, plus they warn you when anything at all smutty is in the chapter so I’d read their stuff with a touch of caution, but it should be fine for the most part)

Bucky Barnes has no idea what he wants to do with his life and is stumbling from one temp job to the next. Hopefully he can keep his new job at Stark Industries for longer than a week…

Lepidoptera 

“I was chosen for a program. A project. They wanted to make…better soldiers. There was a serum, they injected me with it…put me in a—a cocoon, I guess you would call it. The metamorphosis metaphor wasn’t lost on me, trust me, only instead of a butterfly, all that hatched was the same old caterpillar.”
The serum fails, but that is not the end of Steve Rogers. In fact, that is only the beginning.

Mistake on the Part of Nature 

Steve takes in Bucky’s betrayed look and Sam’s confusion, follows Sam’s gaze to the pile of mangled fruit in the trash can. Sudden comprehension fills his face.
“Oh,” he says. “Bucky found out about bananas.”
In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you’re thinking of.

Open Your Eyes and See

Bucky is a veteran; a year on from losing his arm and the men of his team on patrol in Afghanistan, he has recovered enough to be living in Brooklyn. It’s here that he starts to think about what the rest of his life is away from the military and how he can move forward beyond that, including questioning his sexuality and finding out what he really wants, or doesn’t want. It’s while at the VA centre that he reads about the Gender and Sexuality Support Group, run by Steve Rogers, and takes the first step to working out who he really is.

Perfectly Right Wrong Number

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.

Rogers & Barnes: Partners

Steve and Bucky have to pose as a couple for a mission. Nat insists it really is the only option. She’s checked.

The complication: unbeknownst to even Natasha, Steve and Bucky’s friendship has been rocky ever since Bucky confessed his tender feelings and Steve left him out in the cold. Can asexual, completely-in-love-with-his-angry-best-friend Steve complete the mission and win Bucky’s heart?

(The answer is yes. Yay!)

IM SORRY BUT SAM WILSON STARING IN BAFFLED WONDER AT STEVE AND BUCKY AND HOW WEIRD THEY ARE ABOUT EACH OTHER

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.

Slow Work 

It’s 2011, men are allowed to marry, and Bucky is dead.
The future isn’t all that’s strange. Together in peacetime for the first time since before Steve took the serum, Steve and Bucky struggle to find their place – and each other – in the middle of a new millennium, new bodies, and new dynamics.
Or, just because you wake up in a century where everything you’ve repressed is magically okay, that doesn’t make it easy.

Steve Rogers at 100: Celebrating Captain America on Film

“Heil Hydra,” the enemy agent shouts.

“Heil this, motherfucker,” says Captain America, shooting off a rocket.

Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.

Steve Rogers’ Dad Face and Other Common Hazards 

Today, Peter was honest-to-god going to see Captain America himself up close, in person, and not from a rooftop or tiny crevice like a creepy stalker fanboy.
Even better, he was going to watch Steve Rogers make history by soldiering his beleaguered way through the most intensely awkward and honestly ridiculous press conference in the history of ever– jaw thrust out and spine ramrod straight. Trying hard to be polite and respectful in the face of adversity.
While a bunch of assholes with cameras and microphones shouted at him about Iron Man’s adolescent dick.

This, You Protect

The mission resets abruptly, from objective: kill to objective: protect

Tin Soldiers

In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

In the aftermath of Steve’s return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

Unplugged 

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.

We Kissed Back Then 

In recovering his past, Bucky stumbles upon certain memories he once thought he’d always leave buried: like the fact that Steve and he had kissed as children, as teens, as adults… They’d been in love far longer than he’d realized.

The World’s at Stake

Few soulmates are separated at birth by too much time – but when the distance becomes greater than one year all bets are off, with five years’ difference being equally as unusual as fifty.

Yet the one rule that has never been broken is that the soulmates’ lifespans always overlap.

So it came as something of a shock to the young boy in an orphanage in Brooklyn, New York, when his soul mark came in at the age of twelve and told him that his soulmate had been dead for almost sixty years.

You Stand Alone to Every Record I Own 

Bucky Barnes is eighteen, a senior in highschool, and totally in love with his best friend. It’s okay. He’ll either get over it or sleep with every hipster twink in college who’s in a band. At least, that’s what Natasha says.

I was wondering if you had any fics that were based off of famous romances like pride and prejudice or the like. Thank you!

Oh my god my heart and soul

Brookland House

“You seem distressed, my angel. Are you not pleased with the match? The word from court is that Lord James Barnes is an upstanding gentleman, not given to the wild circles around the Prince Regent. And Steve, it was he who asked for you. The young man has kept you in mind all these years – despite our circumstances.”

if this isn’t a kingdom then i don’t know what is

“Punk,” Bucky bites back fondly, putting a warm hand on his arm conciliatorily. He leaves his hand there a little too long for a casual gesture, and Steve’s breath seems to hitch in his throat. “Can’t leave.God, Steve. You know I’m with you. ‘Till the end of the line.”

And in that moment, on that day, Steve was amazed to discover that when Bucky said “I’m with you ‘till the end of the line,” every time he called him punk and knocked him on the shoulder… what he meant was, “I love you.”

And it nearly scared Steve out of his damn shirt.

Middletown: A Study of Suburban Life

In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering.

Most Ardently

Baron Grant, nothing more than a small, sickly country gentleman with no fortune and very little to recommend him, has just poured a glass of claret over Duke Barnes, a wealthy lord with the world at his feet.

Word Count: 3,844

Characters/Pairings: All the bus family and Tripp but Ward-centric; slight Skyeward. 

Possible suicide and self harm triggers, not overly intense - ask if you want to know :)

What are you without John Garrett? 

When he was arrested, that was the question that Agent Coulson asked him. There were a lot of other words thrown in. Words like torture and Fitzsimmons, but that was the one question that hit Ward hard right between the eyes.

Keep reading

Have some suggestions of what songs I think the other characters should wake up and have an adorable morning routine to

Raina: Nicki’s Monster verse

Coulson: Something your dad would listen and sing along badly to. Probably by Boston or Kansas

Ward: Dogs doing jingle bells

Skye: Anything by Marina. I’m leaning towards Numb but I can be convinced to go with Oh No! or Teen Idle

Trip: #flawless

Fitz: God Save the Queen, probably (the Sex Pistols song, to clarify.) Or just the sound of yowling cats or maybe like, a train in the distance

May: #flawless

Mack: Something smooth to listen to as we are entertained by a five minute shower sequence. For plot reasons
