Personal Yuri on Ice Fic Rec List

I’m back again. This is Part Six. I’ve recced so many other fics in posts for Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Seven, Part EightPart Nine, and Part Ten (check my #fic rec tag).

1. Take Hold
“I believe…” Yuuri says, pensive. “I believe that when you’re connected to another person so closely that you share a soul, it’s stupid to think that you wouldn’t feel it. How can you not recognize part of yourself when they’re standing right in front of you?” “That's…I…yes.” Viktor tries to untie his tongue, mouth suddenly arid. “You—I think you would know, yes.” Yuuri skates onto the ice and Viktor’s soul screams after him, Do you know? Can you see me? I’m here, I’m here.

2. In Our Dreams
Victor Nikiforov, the Junior World Figure Skating Gold Medalist, has a secret skill. He has the ability to dreamwalk; to visit the minds of others while his body sleeps. The evening after his Junior Worlds exhibition performance he finds himself in the mind of a young Japanese skater, Yuri Katsuki. He feels the boy’s awe at watching the performance, and is overwhelmed at Yuri’s desire to skate against the Russian one day.

3. The Next Level
It’s not that Yuuri thought winning silver in Barcelona was the easy part. It’s just he didn’t expect what came next to be so much harder.

4. Drive
A story in which two sets of best friends road trip across America together.

5. Different Names For The Same Thing
Yuuri moves to Saint Petersburg. His anxiety, of course, moves with him.

6. Just Hold On (We’re Going Home)
Where Yuuri remembers the banquet, Viktor forgets, and Yakov Feltsman has his own plans.

7.  Katsuki Yuuri, Unintentional Heartthrob
No-one in their right mind would fall in love with Katsuki Yuuri. At least that’s what he thinks. The core members of the Official Katsuki Yuuri Fan Club™ would beg to differ. They would also like to humbly remind Viktor Nikiforov that he is still on his probationary period and his membership will be revoked if he does not get his shit together.

8. Of Bright Stars and Burning Hearts
Viktor doesn’t remember the first time he met Yuuri Katsuki. This, however, is what Viktor does remember…

9. i will work, i will give thanks
Yuuri skips the Sochi banquet. Minako tries her hand at coaching. Victor stays in Russia (at first, anyway).

10. i wanna be (the best you’ve ever known)
All Viktor actually wants is to spoil Yuuri. Apparently, he’s not able to spoil Yuuri so much as he seems able to spoil things with Yuuri. It is terribly unfair. Perhaps the universe actually has it out for him.

11. the perfect gift (for the man who has everything)
It’s Yuuri’s birthday again, and Yuuri has forbidden Victor from spending any money on a gift. Victor is equally determined to get Yuuri the best gift of all time. Nobody has any helpful advice at all.

12. it’s the side effects that save us
After a sudden personal tragedy and a narrow defeat at the Grand Prix Final, Viktor is ready to throw it all away—until he sees a video of the skater who beat him performing the free skate he couldn’t.

13. waiting on you is too hard
Victor spends a year trying to figure out what his relationship with Yuri is exactly. He’s not very successful, until he is, and then it’s all worth it.

14. the “real” victor nikiforov
So, fine, maybe Yuuri’s a little bored and lonely when he likes a dating profile claiming to be Viktor Nikiforov. And, maybe, he’s a little pathetic when he gets excited when the account messages him almost immediately after. And, he’s definitely stupid for falling in love with someone pretending to be his idol, but he can’t help it. It’s not like it’s the real Viktor Nikiforov, anyway. He knows someone is catfishing him, but he still falls ridiculously in love.

15. scherzo rondo
Half past ten in the morning is still too early to have an angry teenager attempt to batter your front door down, as far as Yuuri is concerned, but when that angry teenager is demanding help in throwing a surprise together for his grandfather’s birthday, there’s not a lot to be done.

WE’RE GETTING A MOVIE. *Cries happy tears*


You don’t want to be cured.

we could jump the state lines

By notcaycepollard (also @notcaycepollard on tumblr)

33k // Explicit // Sam/Bucky

Read this fic, and then read it again. This is a story that’s full of parallels, whether it’s a colour that reoccurs in the most unexpectedly heartbreaking way, or an image that becomes something else later and makes you look at everything just a little differently. The language is stunningly beautiful; I reread some lines multiple times to take in the different nuances of them. The characterisations are excellent, and manage to make you look at both Sam and Bucky in new ways while still staying true to canon.

Another reason to read: I don’t think I’ve read a fic that deals this well with Sam’s journey between CA:tWS and CA:CW. Sometimes when you watch the MCU it can be hard to remember that there are literal years between many of the films. It tends to jump straight into action, maybe understandably, and it’s easy to get caught up in the moment and forget that these characters have been living and interacting with one another for months and months without us. Which, obviously, is why I love fanfic. And this fic really, properly explores what Sam’s thought processes might have been after tWS ended, such as why he chooses to look for Bucky with Steve.

One last reason: a lot of fanfic I read is pretty atemporal (doesn’t quite feel like it’s set in one particular year/time), which makes perfect sense - I love exploring characters’ emotions and how they develop their relationships with other people; it isn’t always important when or where exactly that’s taking place. Having said that, for this fic I absolutely loved how ‘placed’ it felt, both in terms of time (some excellent research about the MCU timeline clearly went into it) and in terms of location - there is a huge variety of locations, and there are so many little details that add up to make settings feel vivid and real, which in turn makes what the characters are experiencing feel even more real.

Oh, and if you’re a fan of classical art, you’ll love this fic. If you don’t know much about it (me), you’ll still love it and also learn a little about art and art history. Win-win.

Another favourite fic by the same author: i didn’t know i was lonely ‘til (i saw your face) (2.3k // Teen // Sam/Steve)

Summary: “Hey Sam,” Bucky says, “can I ask you a question? Why does Steve always wear such tight t-shirts nowadays? You think nobody’s told him he’s got muscles?”

Sam chokes on his coffee. “That is not where I was expecting this to go, okay, I, uh. Honestly, I’ve got no fucking idea. He didn’t dress like that in the war?”

“Not except for the costume,” Bucky says dreamily. “He kept it, you know. I told him to keep it.”

notcaycepollard replied to your post: I SERIOUSLY HAVE THE BEST FRIENDS EVER. <3

I hope your surgery goes okay and that you get heaps of good rest afterwards!! <3333

THANKS, PAL!!! :D <333

I really appreciate it, and that is exactly the plan. Not only will I get to rest, but I WILL BE ABLE TO CATCH UP ON FIC READING! I’m seriously looking forward to that so much, you have no idea! :D 

notcaycepollard  asked:


luna has been answered!

do you like the person that you’ve become?

I think I do. I’m never going to be satisfied in the willpower and cleaning departments, but the rest of it? I think it’s pretty all right.

when was your first kiss?

I was sixteen, I think? I met a boy at a party and we went walking in the streets around the house. I don’t remember much about the kiss itself, so it couldn’t have been that good.

Fic Rec Friday  1.11

There were at least two fics this round that I had previously read but didn’t realize it until I got well into the story. This is what happens when you don’t start keeping track of what you’ve read until two+ years later! One of these days I’ll make a ‘re-read’ list and go at it, but for now you get these  *\o/*

(btw still emotionally compromised from this Captain America fic)

Captain America: 

in a dream (you saw a way to survive and you were full of joy) by notcaycepollard  | 4K | T | Bucky/Steve

When he opens his eyes, it’s to Steve sitting in the grass in a park. There are rays of sunlight picking out individual glints of gold in his hair, and he has a crown of daisies, lopsided over one ear.

“You’ve got flowers in your hair, you mook,” Bucky mumbles, and leans over to straighten them. Steve’s hair is very fine; it catches on the stems of the flowers, on Bucky’s fingers, and he has to go carefully to avoid breaking the looped chain. His fingers are warm, and Steve sighs a little in what sounds like pleasure when Bucky strokes his hair smooth.

“This isn’t real,” Bucky mutters, “it’s just a dream.”

“It’s never just a dream,” Steve says solemnly, “come on, why’d you bring me here, Sleeping Beauty?”

Teen Wolf:

As the river flows into the delta by ElisAttack  | 8.2K | T | Derek/Stiles

Stiles never planned on squiring for a laird, but he figures fate has a funny way of doing things.

Or the one where Derek is a kind-hearted Scottish laird, and Stiles is his saucy squire.

One Dollar Yoda by exclamation  | 10.7K | M | Derek/Stiles

Stiles is an unbonded spark, so he’s been dealing with courting alphas since he was ten. It’s gotten a lot worse since he turned sixteen. Some are assholes, some are nice, but Stiles hasn’t wanted to spend the rest of his life bound to any of them.

When Derek Hale shows up at his school, Stiles expects him to be just another asshole alpha attempting to buy him with expensive gifts. But Derek Hale puts no effort whatsoever into his courtship gifts. Stiles ought to be offended but instead he finds it refreshing.

The Rapture in the Dark Puts Me at Ease by secondstar  | 28.1K | E | Derek/Stiles

Derek Hale returns home from war to find that the home he knew and the family he had are gone. Greed, poverty and cruelty have replaced his idyllic memories. Despite the new harshness of Beacon Hills, Derek refuses to believe that all hope is lost. And it seems he is not alone as the mysterious Night Watchman deliver hope to the people of Beacon Hills by giving food and money to those who need it most.

The Night Watchman will not tolerate this injustice. Will Derek?

set your flag on fire by Siria  | 35.8K | T | Derek/Stiles

“Things have been getting progressively weirder since you two left,” Stiles told Cora and Derek. “Like, weird even for Beacon Hills.”

Dioskouroi by DevilDoll  | 39.2K | E | Derek/Stiles

“There’s two of us now!” In which a spell to double Derek’s power ends up being a little more literal than anyone expected.

Entente by Siria  | 44.3K | E | Derek/Stiles

Stiles is under no illusions when he is sent west: perhaps his marriage will end up a love match, but his duty is to secure the treaty between his people and the kingdom of Francia. Yet from his very first encounter with his arrogant husband Derek, Stiles realises that doing his duty will be a far more difficult and perilous thing than he ever imagined.

Heartbreak is the National Anthem! by standinginanicedress  | 46.6K | E | Derek/Stiles

This could turn out even worse than either of them could ever imagine, but at this point, every thing is a game to Stiles. He’s learned how to play his cards exactly right and get what he wants out of every single situation, maybe not always in his best interest, but scamming alphas out of their money and time is fun.

He scratches at the back of his head, takes a second to adjust his shirt, moving away from the railing he’d been leaning up against, and gives Derek a firm glare. Pointing one finger directly into his face and trying to fight off the smirk, he says, “just don’t go falling in love with me while you’re at it.”

Derek sneers. “I’ll pray for the strength to not succumb to your wiles.”

“Oh, that’s what they all say.“

It Takes A Village by Hypocorismm  | 49.2K | M | Derek/Stiles

Stiles’s used to yogurt handprints on his shirts from where he picked her up, and he’s used to snot on his shoulders and neck from where she cried after a bad dream. He’s used to her legendary tantrums when she doesn’t get her way, her eyes glowing ferocious gold. He’s used to being the village it takes to raise her, and the pack she longs for.

Except, he needs the pack’s help, and Derek’s protection when a particularly power-hungry pack wants his cub. And he isn’t used to sharing.

Seeing Wolves (Where There Are No Wolves) by MellytheHun  | 67.9K | E | Derek/Stiles

Or otherwise known as "Derek Goes to the Doctor,” wherein Derek gets the therapy he so desperately needs and gets healthy. The clearer his head gets, the more room it seems to have for Stiles.

You Can Call Me What You Want by secondstar  | 69.3K | E | Derek/Stiles

Stiles Stilinski specializes in giving his clients exactly what they need.He knows what to say and how to act. It’s easy and he’s good at it. He never breaks.

Satisfaction (a BDSM ‘verse) by secondstar  | 125.3K | Works: 2 | E | Derek/Stiles

Finding out that Beacon Hills was the home of the ONLY Werewolf Microbrewery changed Stiles and Scott’s lives. Gone where the days that Scott had to be Stiles’ DD, because finally he could drink. The icing on the cake was the fact that the owner of said bar just so happened to be none other than Derek Hale.

Stiles wanted nothing more than to push Derek against a mattress, or a table, or maybe a wall. Stiles wasn’t picky. He just knows that he wants him.


So at some point I tripped into shipping this, and went looking for fic, and ran into some really good stuff. And since I like writing recs lists, and figured some of you might be interested in these things, and also like to promote the work of other authors I think are doing great things: have a recs list of some Sam/Bucky fic that I read and loved!

in your black heart (is where you’ll find me) by notcaycepollard

Sam and Bucky start calling each other pet names in order to get under each others’ skin. Things sort of…escalate from there. This fic is hilarious, with a lot of fantastic banter and snark of the kind I love and want from this pairing.

warm blood (feels good, i can’t control it anymore) by notcaycepollard

Bucky suffers with feeling cold all the time after coming out of cryo post-Civil War, and decides that Sam makes a good source of warmth. Not like that, except then like that. 

The Lion Sleeps Tonight by prettylittlementirosa

A classic “oh no, they have to share a bed to keep warm/for various other reasons, what’s going to happen” fic, and done so well. 

A Dangerous Lifestyle by matchsticks_p

Sam and Bucky are on the run, and somewhere in the mix they trip into having sex. It’s a secret, though, so shhhh. Again, just a delightful fic with action and adventure and some great “trying not to get caught” sex, which apparently is kind of a kink?

a couple rebel top gun pilots (flying with nowhere to be) by notcaycepollard

Clearly I really like this author’s Sam/Bucky, considering there are three of their fics on here, but I can’t help it if it’s great. 

This is the one where Bucky starts learning massage therapy, and Sam is Captain America. 

I Could Walk Out, But I Won’t by napricot

Not exactly Sam/Bucky but definitely Sam & Bucky, and some fantastic Sam-characterization. When one of Sam’s former squad-mates commits suicide, Sam embarks on a cross-country road trip to his funeral. Bucky comes alone. Seriously, the writing of Sam in this fic is amazing.
NEW FIC POST! In Screaming Color [Star Wars Sequel Trilogy - Poe Dameron/Rey, past Poe Dameron/Muran, Poe & [just about everyone]]
By Organization for Transformative Works

The goggles click. “I disagree. The Force always glows bright around you, Poe Dameron, but now it is singing. You must hear it. Ever since you were a little child and Shara Bey first brought you to me to show you off, the Force has had a love affair with you. Why are you keeping it waiting?”

“I have no idea what you mean,” Poe says, and swallows down the dream of the Force tree back home.

“Not when you were hitting my castle,” Maz snorts. “No, you are wrong, Poe Dameron. Or maybe misguided by the way the Force has hurt you in your life. But don’t you see the way those who command the Force are always drawn to you?” She touches his face again, palms against his cheeks grown stubbly over the long day. “Your good heart is like a well of the Light, my beautiful boyfriend. Your mother, Shara Bey, she was the same. It is why Luke Skywalker entrusted her, and you, with the Force tree. I think your role in the fight is to sow seeds of the Light in any way you can. Those to whom the Force calls find their way to you. It is inevitable.”

Or, Poe has a lot of feelings, gets a lot of therapy, and tries to figure out who a fighter pilot will be once the fight is over.


Some fairly extensive Notes are at the top of the first chapter/prologue, but those are just about story content. I wanted to do my THANK YOU NOTES here, so I can actually @ people.

SO: THANK YOU TO ALL OF THE BETAS OVER THE LAST TWO YEARS – @nichestars @bebeocho @lehdenlaulu @fille-lioncelle @deputychairman @notcaycepollard @peradii @glycerineclown @itsplantingseeds @bomberqueen17 you are all wonderful, whether you read the first very tiny snippets or the whole damn oozing alive thing. I love you all and value your thoughts and hearts.

This is very much a Poe-centric character piece. There are a lot of plotlines and threads happening all at once, but it is absolutely a Poe fic. A Study In Dameron and his perspectives and viewpoints on himself and everyone/everything else in the Galaxy, as shifting through therapy for Starkiller PTSD, basically.

But also BABIES.

“You’re sending me on a two-man undercover,” Bucky says, helplessly, “staying in a vineyard retreat, alone, with Wilson.”

“Pack your swim trunks,” Daisy adds, “apparently it’s got a hot tub.”

Bucky looks at Sam. Sam looks back at Bucky. Sam’s arms are crossed over his chest, his forearms bare. Bucky carefully doesn’t look at Sam’s forearms, or the way his t-shirt is pulled tight over his shoulders, straining just a little at the seams. Bucky’s not looking at that at all. He makes eye contact, careful to keep his face neutral.

Sam’s eyes are soft and dark. Maybe a little amused. He has very long eyelashes.

Bucky swallows hard.

“Great,” he says. “That’s just— great.”

Caeseria’s Yuri!!! on ICE fic rec post

As a writer I don’t read much (cause I’m usually writing), and instead rely on recs myself before I leap in to something, but there’s a few gems I have found out there on my own that I thought I’d share myself.  I’m staying away from the super popular stuff that everyone is reading, in the hope that some of the less mega-popular fic gets some love!

In no particular order, here are my favourites:

Freeze Pop by delightedgurgle  - YuYuu – Explicit (warning for underage) 1.5k
Premise: “Do you even understand what the term sexual means? If you suck then my win means nothing.”

**Yuri P takes one for the team and shows Yuuri K. how things are done.  Yuuri & Yurio’s characterization in this is brilliant. One of the best YuYuu fics out there I’ve currently found on my travels through the A03.

A Fellow With a One-Track Mind by ken_ichijouji (dommific) – Explicit 4k
Victor decides in order to help Yuuri land quads more consistently, he should have some kind of reward system.  (AKA Victor strips every time Yuuri lands a quad fic.)

**This is genius, and quite funny in places!

Maelstrom by feelslikefire – Explicit – 44k
Victor Nikiforov is poised to win gold in his fifth consecutive Grand Prix Final. He has the world at his feet, is unparalleled in the sport–right up until a snowstorm blows into Sochi, and he finds himself repeating the same day over and over and over. He stumbles over Yuuri Katsuki, and everything changes.  (Or, the time loop au. Loosely based on Groundhog Day.)

**I can’t not rec this story, even if it is popular.  Damn, this is awesome…I like the folk-tale aspect to the background story, and it’s a hugely absorbing read.  Do give this a go if you haven’t yet!

Victor Effing Nikiforov by shysweetthing – Explicit – 13k
AU in which Yuuri still doesn’t remember the banquet, somehow doesn’t blow Japanese Nationals, runs into Victor at the World Championships, and has absolutely no idea why his idol is suddenly friendly and incredibly handsy. Does Yuuri care about his reasons? No. It’s Victor Effing Nikiforov.

**This is another hilarious but great one. Well worth the read :)

Immaculate Dream, Made Breath and Skin by @rcmclachlan - Explicit - 3k
Almost half his life has been spent training for the day that Victor Nikiforov takes him to bed, so when it finally happens after the Grand Prix Final, Yuuri’s prepared. More than prepared: he’s ready. No one’s ever touched him as a lover, sure, but there’s nothing that he hasn’t already dreamed about doing or having done to him to make anything that could happen a shock. But apparently Victor’s sole purpose in life is to subvert all his expectations. 

**This is about the hottest, filthiest thing I’ve ever read (which is saying something based on my own writing) and it’s freaking awesome. Book a bunk for once you’ve finished reading this. Maybe for the weekend. 

am i dancing sexy yet (i can’t wait to make your body my own) by @notcaycepollard - Explicit - 1.7k
“Victor,” Yuuri murmurs. “What did you do, nights before a big competition? You never got nervous energy you couldn’t work off?” “Well,” Victor says like he’s considering. “To tell you the truth, times like that, I would mostly jerk off,“ and that’s enough to give Yuuri some ideas.

**Eros!Yuuri teasing Victor. Yum :)

Nine-tails by DeeNuke - Gen - 22k
A nine-tailed Kitsune is waiting for the moments of its ascending, but discovers they’re trapped on Earth even after growing their ninth tail.

**Yeah, yeah. You are all making “OMG, Caeseria read G-rated fic!” faces.  Trust me, this story is fabulous. Lot’s of well-crafted atmosphere and folk-tale elements with kitsune!Victor in a kimono. Gorgeous story.

The Boyfriend Experience by cryingoverspilledvodka - Explicit - WIP - 120k
Katsuki Yuuri is an accomplished escort at 23, operating under the pseudonym Eros, in Detroit. When one of his favourite clients sets him up with none other than world-renowned figure skater Victor Nikiforov, the delicate balance between Yuuri’s personal and professional life teeters ever closer towards ruin.

**Good lord, why are more people not reading this? The author says the full draft is finished, and chapters are being edited for publishing weekly.  Totally absorbing, well-characterized, and the sex is smoking hot. Holy shit.  Go read this. (if you are worried about Yuuri getting it on with OC’s or stuff, not to worry, this is strictly Victuuri, with past mentions of previous stuff).

Twenty-Five Hours by 0lizzybennet0 - Mature - 23K  (WIP)
In which Yuuri spends a 25 hour flight next to Victor Nikiforov, skating legend, and feels it might simultaneously be the best and worst thing that has ever happened to him.

**Again with the why are more people not reading this??! Gah, I ADORE this story.  I mainlined the whole thing yesterday and I can’t wait for the last chapter.

For the Camera by @noon30ish - Explicit - 41K (WIP) 
In which Yuuri becomes a pornstar and is ‘training’ under the one and only, the Living Legend, Vitya.Or the fic where, for Yuuri, sex comes first and love comes after.

**JFC, I laughed my head off at the bad porn tropes. They’re all there, along with a compelling story line (IKR?) and Princess Bride references. I love this story. Porn with Feeling indeed!! GO READ THIS NOW. 

five theories about victor "my husband” nikiforov (+ one fact) by @dadvans - General - 2.5K
No one knows the truth about the strange, well-paying man who comes into the bar three times a week and only talks about his husband. But everyone has their theories.

**This is one of the funniest things I think I’ve ever read.  Not to be missed for brilliant catchphrases like “my husband’s husband” and “our dog”. You’ll see why. ;)

Hot Russian daddy fucks a horny Japanese slut [AKA Viktor Nikiforov/Yuuri Katsuki REAL sex tape leaked] by Krtek - Explicit - 15K
An extremely private video of Yuuri and Viktor gets posted online, sending the internet and general public into a shitstorm.

**I love social media fic, and this is one of the best.  Strangely compelling, and not to be missed for the last chapter.  I really enjoy seeing Victuuri from an internet POV.  Do give this one a read, you won’t be sorry!  This fic needs more love!

An Examination of Stamina by Viktor Nikiforov by Anonymous_Ostrich - Explicit - 4.5K
“Viktor…” Yuuri’s voice was low and gravelly, his teeth grazing the bend of Viktor’s neck, “Is it really okay to keep going?” His cock stirred inside of Viktor, still rock hard, still eager. The feeling of Yuuri’s semen trickling slowly out of his stretched hole made Viktor shiver, and he grabbed Yuuri’s chin in his hand, yanking his face up so that their eyes could meet.“I’ll say this once, Yuuri. Give me everything you’ve got. Don’t stop even if I beg for you to.”

**Ahem. *clears throat* THIS is the fic that made me hang my mouth open and thank the internet gods for this filthy, filthy, masterpiece featuring a fucked-out Victor Nikiforov. Boy, does Yuuri have legendary stamina. Woot!! <3

Rec me some things in the comments!! What are your favourites? I love a good read.  Feel free to reblog this as well to share the love with the fandom!!

i’m feeling like a loaded gun (and when it’s done i’m the only one) by notcaycepollard (oneshot | 3,931 | E)

There’s something different when it’s Bucky’s hands cleaning his rifle, is all.

“What’s got you blushing, Steve?” Bucky asks, low and serious, and Steve flushes harder, hot to his ears.

“I’m not,” he says anyway, and, ”leave it.”

That seems to be the thing that breaks the ice between them; Bucky’s never really hung out with Sam before, past being jammed into a too-small car for six hours and then two uncomfortable months in a safehouse trying not to get on each other’s last nerve. Now they’re getting lunch or coffee every few days. Sam falls asleep on Bucky’s couch three more times. Bucky joins him and Steve a couple of times on their morning run.

He doesn’t notice, is the thing; doesn’t notice how ever since Sam slept on his couch that night he’s been letting Bucky closer bit by bit, that as Bucky’s been wondering about the boundaries and structures of friendship, Sam’s been drawing in.

do u wanna read 19k of sam/bucky slowburn? yeah? good because that’s all i got here

Some of my favorite fics + bonus writers

These are some of my favorites, in no particular order, as requested by @tinybearswithjetpacks :) Do check their great list here. Many of these have a podfic version available as well. All stucky, unless otherwise mentioned!

Ain’t No Grave (Can Keep my Body Down) by spitandvinegar A fandom classic. Deals with heavy subjects but is also incredibly funny.

cascades. by orange_crushed, podfic by quietnight Unique, gorgeous, plotty.

Most Ardently by 74days, podfic by auroreanrave A most delightful regency au!

Maybe Home Is Somewhere I’m Going by astolat, podfic by quietnight sam/steve, get-together, meet the family goodness. 

Infinite Coffee and Protection Detail series by owlet, various podfics by quietnightAvidReaderLady and DustySoul Another fandom classic. So funny and emotional, always makes me laugh and sniffle.

Fuzz Therapy by machine_doveSproings Veteran Bucky Barnes cuddles kittens. Heartwarming stuff!

I know your otp is stucky, but you also like winterfalcon, yes? Do you read fic, and if yes, what's your fave?

YES OF COURSE I LOVE SAM/BUCKY SO MUCH. I love to read fics of this pairing, and my lament is that honestly there’s not enough winterfalcon out there ;_____; I’ve read most of the completed sam/bucky fics on ao3 (the ones that have it as a main pairing, to clarify, and not as a side or background pairing), and I’d rec them all if I could, but my faves fics are:

a couple rebel top gun pilots (flying with nowhere to be) by @notcaycepollard​ 

That seems to be the thing that breaks the ice between them; Bucky’s never really hung out with Sam before, past being jammed into a too-small car for six hours and then two uncomfortable months in a safehouse trying not to get on each other’s last nerve. Now they’re getting lunch or coffee every few days. Sam falls asleep on Bucky’s couch three more times. Bucky joins him and Steve a couple of times on their morning run.

He doesn’t notice, is the thing; doesn’t notice how ever since Sam slept on his couch that night he’s been letting Bucky closer bit by bit, that as Bucky’s been wondering about the boundaries and structures of friendship, Sam’s been drawing in.

do i tell you i love you or not (cause i can’t really guess what you want)  by notcaycepollard (actually all of this author’s works in the pairing tag are great)

Shampoo, he thinks. Conditioner.

The kind of hair that’s nice to touch, he hears Sam say again, and reaches for one of the bottles.

It’s different than soap. Smells nice, like fruit and flowers. The shampoo lathers up soft as clouds, washes away easy. Conditioner’s worse; he can’t tell when it’s fucking rinsed out, his hair feels weird. But he grabs the plastic comb - yes, thank you, Wilson, he does know what a goddamn comb is, he’s not a barbarian - and it slides through without catching, like all the knots are just gone. There could be benefits, he’s willing to admit.

Reasons Sam Won’t Move His Seat For Bucky by neversaydie

The time he stole his steering wheel (right out of his fucking hands while he was very much driving and trying to avoid being killed Steve it’s not funny in hindsight).

The time he ripped off Sam’s wing and kicked him off a helicarrier.

The time he picked Sam up by his face and threw him across the room.

Sam has a long list of reasons Bucky isn’t getting any favours from him any time soon.

[in which I don’t know how this turned into a Ten Things I Hate About You thing but here we are.]

Make a Thing Go Right hansbekhart

Sam meets Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes on a Thursday night, at a burlesque show, and how it happens is this:

It’s already late, later than he should be out on a weeknight, but the theme of the show was a super hero revue and there was no way he was gonna miss that. It’s loud in the venue, which is the back space of what probably used to be a warehouse right near the Gowanus Canal, and Sam’s already had a few. He’s up at the bar during the break, watching the act. He doesn’t hear someone say, “Behind!” so when he steps away from the bar, he smashes right into the guy who’d just done the Captain America routine up on stage, and knocks his drinks to the ground. —

Or, I wanted to see more stories that captured the weirdness and complexity of being queer, in your late 20s, and trying to date in Brooklyn - which is my life - so I wrote one. Takes place in the MCU.

love is in the air (i smell coffee) by Flora_K, hermionesmydawg

Sam Wilson - graduate student, part-time barista, part-time salesman, and full-time father - doesn’t have time to sleep, much less date. At least, that’s what he tells himself.

“Rude,” Bucky frowns once he’s acquired the rogue mouthful of whip, “flirting with you like that and then that kind of follow-through.”

“Right? I mean, once he got to my house I got an eyeful of him in nothing but a dirty white undershirt, and before I knew it I was giving up my exceptionally peaceful life to take on Hydra, the US government, and a possibly-fictional infamous Soviet assassin, and jeez, have I been regretting that ever since. One man’s muscles shouldn’t have that much power.”

“It’s his biceps, mostly.”

“Yeah, and his pecs. But I feel you on the biceps.”

“He flexed his biceps and I crashed a helicopter into him, that’s how powerful they are.”

When Rey hugs Finn, all she can think is Force, I don’t want to let you go.

Every minute that goes by on the Falcon feels like half a century. She can’t look away from him: his broad shoulders, his smile, the way his eyes go soft and warm when he glances back and realizes she’s looking.

They’re crammed in together, sixty-eight Resistance survivors in a ship made to fit fifteen comfortably, and there’s barely a private corner let alone an empty room. Rey swallows down her desire. Curls up under her cloak and tries to rest.
