i'm tagging the shit out of this in the hope that someone makes my dreams come true

The Winter Soldier is on the run and no one is more surprised than he is by the fact that he is accompanied by a little boy who seems convinced that he is his father.

I love you like rlb
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.

“Captain America, what’s your stance on gay marriage?” Everyone knows that, by now. Everyone but Bucky.

To the One I’ve Sinned Against
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.”

Mighty like Love, Mighty like Sorrow
“After freeing himself from the Russians’ mind control, Bucky is left at loose ends, drifting through the decades. Still, he’s in no hurry to take up Nick Fury’s offer to once again fight the good fight – especially not when Fury has the nerve to put some imposter in his best friend’s old suit and send him out to fight against Chitauri.

The Bucky Barnes Guide to Household Management
Steve is unobservant, Bucky learns to be good at things that aren’t killing people, and knitting happens.

and we are finally home
The Winter Soldier shows up in Sam’s kitchen, one morning. He deals with it. (Natasha helps. Steve would, if they let him.)

The Art Of Trolling
Since everyone thinks they can ask all kinds of intrusive questions about Captain America, it’s Bucky’s duty to troll the hell out of them.

When the helicarriers blow up and the Winter Soldier goes on the run, he takes Steve with him. He’s got a name written in Morse code on the inside of his arm, a ton of questions he doesn’t know how to ask, and now, a new handler with absolutely zero sense of self-preservation to contend with. Life is hard. In which Bucky tries to figure out whether he’s a human being, Steve does everything he can to keep from losing him again, and there are lots of explosions.

Learning to say Hello
Clint had woken up one morning about three weeks ago (Well, Clint guessed about three. Definitely more than one. Maybe.) and stumbled down to the living room only to realize there was a guy on his couch. Barnes had been having a staring contest with Lucky (one eye shut, to make it fair, Clint had noticed) and Clint had decided to just leave him to it and make decisions after he’d had some coffee.

The S. Rogers Memorial (it’s NOT a shrine) to J. B. Barnes
When the Avengers realize that Steve doesn’t have anything to remind him of Bucky Barnes, they embark on a project to track down Bucky memorabilia. But it seems that Steve isn’t the only visitor to the (unofficial) J. B. Barnes memorial (which is totally NOT a shrine, Tony).

sam deserves better than these assholes

This One’s For Bravery and This One’s For Me
The thing is, he’s read most all of the books that have been written about Captain America. At first he was desperate to understand why people were so strange about him, why it felt like the whole world was staring at him, waiting for him to do something amazing. Before the Chitauri invasion, no one had told him that a generation of Americans had grown up watching Captain America cartoons on Saturday morning. No one had said that the stupid propaganda reels he shot with the USO and later with the Commandos would be dissected by scores of academics for cultural meaning, that every part of his life and death already had a book written about it. No one had told him what kind of symbol Captain America had become, because the answer was too complicated, and had changed every decade or so anyway.

Operation Star-Spangled Double(s)
“Y’know, there are technically three of us,” Clint pointed out. “Shouldn’t it be Operation Star-Spangled Doubles?” “Now you’re just nitpicking,” Tony said. He tacked a hasty (s) to the end of DOUBLE. “Also, I’m pretty sure that’s permanent marker,” Clint added. “Damn it!” Tony shouted.

Geriatric Roadtrip, 2015
Bucky was the eldest of four.

Find My Way
Well, someone had to write the post-Winter Soldier fic where Bucky gets a decent meal and some homemade apple pie, right?

Coffeemaking for Dummies
In which Tony proves he has a secondary career option, Sam is a a good guy and Natasha chooses to take a chance on Rogers’ good judgement.

Selfies from the Underground
Tony reminded himself that the second the incorrect password was entered, the phone would destroy itself and any data on it. And there was no way someone named Tepid the Magnificent would guess– “I’m in,” said Tepid. “Soon I’ll know all of the Avengers’ secrets.” Tony briefly closed his eyes. “Steve. What was your password?” “It’s ‘password,’” Tepid replied.

Broken Dicks and Bloody Noses
Steve and Bucky meet in the ER, and then keep meeting in the ER because they are both knuckleheads who keep getting beaten up by other people.

Meet-Cute AUs
Steve and Bucky meet, again and again.

The man on the bridge
Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door in the middle of the night might be a bit out of character, but it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility. Stranger things have happened.Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door with an amnesiac assassin - who may or may not have some of Tony’s personally designed hardware attached where his arm should be - well that’s just far too interesting to turn away, even if Tony is trying to avoid all things S.H.I.E.L.D these days..

I’ve Never Felt Young (But For You I’ll Try)
Bucky has been working at Clint’s bakery ever since he left the military. He’s happy with his life, and adjusting to his missing arm. But when tiny, argumentative Steve Rogers walks into the bakery one day, his life will never be the same….

Bucky Barnes is a Goddamn Menace
It was a good thing that the Avengers had some experience with what a little shit Steve Rogers actually was, because adding Bucky Barnes to the mix turned out to just make everything so much worse.

make one dream come true (you only live twice)
Five times the Winter Soldier evaded capture. In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, and Steve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.

Steve Rogers at 100: Celebrating Captain America on Film
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.
