Clint Barton and the Howling Commandogs by [archiveofourown.org profile] galwednesday
Clint rescues some superdogs, and then Bucky shows up to play with them. Adorable.

It was just—Jack's voice. Southern accent aside, he sounded exactly like Bucky.

At least, Steve thought he did. His inner rational Sam gently suggested it might be wishful thinking. Do you remember his voice well enough to be sure? It had been over seventy years, or nearly five, depending on how you counted, since Steve had properly heard Bucky's voice. His brief interactions with the Winter Soldier didn't count, what with all the agonized screaming and gunfire and shrieking metal. And history hadn't preserved the sound of Bucky's voice. Steve had checked. It had just been Captain America who spoke on all those propaganda films and newsreels, his Howling Commandos silent and relegated to montages and still pictures. He couldn't be too resentful though, not when history had preserved the precious sight of Bucky laughing and smiling, caught in one perfect loop in the Smithsonian.

So maybe Steve just didn't remember Bucky's voice, not perfectly. He'd been half deaf for the better part of their friendship after all. Maybe his memory didn't hold the exact softness of Bucky's voice, its particular pitch. Maybe all the certainty he had left was in how its soothing and smooth tones had meant home and safe when Bucky had read to him when he'd been too sick to read himself. Maybe he could only be sure of the animated rise and fall of Bucky's chatter, the way he'd talked and talked when he got home from work, regaling Steve with the latest neighborhood gossip or the plot of whatever pulp novel he was reading.

Whatever Steve did or didn't remember, however imperfect the memory of Bucky's voice, listening to Jack plucked at some chord in Steve's heart, and set it to thrumming. It didn't matter that Steve was wedged uncomfortably in a tree's branches, it didn't matter that Jack was just talking about equations and math terms Steve didn't know or care about. He sounded like Bucky.
Hilarious and sweet reunion story.

Keep the Fire Burning by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
In Uncanny Avengers #20, the Red Skull, using Johnny as a psychic puppet, taunted Spider-Man by saying he'd kill Johnny in front of Peter, and it was the most beautiful panel in the whole entire world. Peter and Johnny in the aftermath. Oh boys.
