You Only Live Twice by Amethystina
Anonymous: Imagine that Tony was there during WW2 instead of Howard, and somehow (extremis??) he’s lived through until the 21st century thinking that Bucky was dead and then lo and behold Cap2 happens and Tony rescues Bucky and he has to be Bucky and Steve’s guide into the new world

Tony Stark Is Not A Mother Hen (Unless He Is) by Potrix
Tony doesn’t mind being Bucky’s crutch, he absolutely doesn’t, but it makes him wonder sometimes, how healthy their behaviour and constantly growing co-dependency really is. Because he wants more for Bucky, so much more.

Walls of Jericho by antigrav_vector
After the events of CATWS, Tony discovers something in the leaked SHIELD data that catches everyone’s attention. A list of HYDRA research bases. When the team starts taking them out, however, things go sideways in ways they didn’t expect. Director Fury pulls his support, the HYDRA bases are not what they seem, and a certain ghost is testing the edges of their mission parameters… And through it all, Tony can’t seem to help but dig until he gets to the bottom of things.

In Silence We Speak by Akira_of_the_Twilight
After having his life threatened numerous times; the fate of the planet resting on his shoulders just as many times; and living with deadly assassins, enhanced super humans, and Norse gods, it took a lot to truly scare Tony. Which was why Tony glared at Bucky Barnes—the Winter Soldier, the man who had been a ghost story for decades and could probably mess up Tony worse than Natasha if the man was having one of his off days. All of that didn’t matter though, because the asshole was blocking Tony from his coffee.

Hopeless Wanderer by JensenAckles13
James Buchanan Barnes died when he fell from that train in the mountains; not in the literal sense, but very much in the figurative. He’d been molded into the Winter Soldier, the perfect assassin, by Hydra. But Bucky? He was still very much alive, trapped in his new Winter Soldier body, watching as this new him kills and hurts and demolishes. He doesn’t know what he would call himself- a ghost, maybe, a spirit. A soul? This goes on for seventy years, until one Tony Stark comes along and completely fucks up the life he’s trapped in. He watched the man struggle and hurt, seen him at his best and at his worst and somewhere along the way, Bucky fell in love with the self-made genius.
And then.
Then Tony almost dies, and suddenly, he can see Bucky- the ghost Bucky, who has been tied to him since he met him years ago, no longer stuck to the Winter Soldier.
Its been one helluva ride, and Bucky’s new goal?
Get his body back so he can kiss Tony senseless.
Easy, right?

Apartment Crasher by silver_drip
Tony’s just there to water his friend’s plants. He didn’t think he’d walk in on an assassin.

Whatever It Is by Averia
Bucky was not really caring about the insults, even though it should have hurt him. He knew Stark would fix it and that was really all that mattered. If it also meant that Stark would be propping his arm forever, then so be it.

If I promise to do better (will you maybe change your mind) by Captain_of_the_sass
Tony was a superhero. He’d built himself a heart out of scraps in a cave, he could totally handle five kids and a super-soldier who hated his guts. Or at least that’s what he kept telling himself.
AKA the one where the rest of the team is de-aged and Bucky and Tony are saddled with babysitting duty.

Translation Failure by Akira_of_the_Twilight
Tony didn’t know what he was doing.
No, that was an inaccurate statement. He knew exactly what he was doing; he just didn’t know how he could have fallen so far.
Four bottles of four different types of alcohol huddled around him like close friends, but they weren’t that; they were really his enemies, mocking him for all of his weaknesses and faults. He’d sworn years ago that he would never drink so much again, yet here he was on the living room floor of his suite, utterly drunk, and crying silently.

Life’s good by Sandra_Taylor
Bucky’s recovery was a procces. Tony helped.
Following movies up to Winter Soldier.

Boom, Boom by Shi_Toyu
The team gets together to fight off Doom but the doesn’t stop Tony and Bucky from doing what they do best.

Winter, Soldier, Bucky by Jake_Matthews
Not quite Bucky Barnes, but no longer the Winter Soldier, the man Steve brings back to the Avengers facility would much rather have stayed on his own. The Soldier tries his best to fit in, but around the one man he most wants to befriend, he can’t help but stare.

Peppermint Marshmallows Are Not A Food Group by Enicia24
Look all I know is that Tony loves these marshmallows, and maybe James falls a little bit in love with him at first sight.

Talk Warmth into Me by InsaneJuliann
He’s not Bucky, but he’s not the Winter Soldier. Stuck somewhere in between, he struggles with all left behind from  his time with HYDRA, the fear and the memories, but receives help from Tony. Slowly, he gets better, and the two of them get closer.

A Burden Taken by Akira_of_the_Twilight
When soul mates cross paths, they take away each others’ pain, whether or not they ever meet again.
Tony crossed paths with his soul mate at a young age.
It was during a murder.

The Embarrassing Truth of Crushes by plirio
Tony Stark is absolutely too old for crushes. Certainly too cool for it. He does not need to be this close to half a century spending so much of his brain power thinking about the fact that a beautiful man smiled at him today.
It’s embarrassing, that’s what it is.
Or, in which Bucky Barnes charms Tony, makes friends with robots and eats a lot of cake pops. There’s also an attempt at world peace.

Part 2 | Part 3

also????? even has been so freaking HESITANT this past few weeks, like it was so OBVIOUS that he had totally fallen for isak, that he wanted to be with him but there was so much just holding him back (so much we don’t know yet), stopping him from actually letting himself BE with isak

but then 

isak texted him “call me when you’re done with your girlfriend” he let him KNOW that he was done waiting, and i think it just hit even so hard that right there at that moment he was about to freaking lose this guy WHO LITERALLY HAD HIS HEART and liiiiisteeeen HESITANT EVEN BECAME A THING OF THE PAST, HE WAS GONE. the things holding him back??? GONE GONE 

and then in MINUTES he found himself standing at isak’s door and he was just READY and he somehow managed to fight back whatever it was that had been stopping him, he SET HIMSELF FREE and made himself available and he basically told isak 

i am not going to freaking lose you
