Avengers

Embers by [archiveofourown.org profile] marginalia
Each day they choose each other. They're the only ones who know what it's like, to be both young and old, to be so strong and so tired, they're the only ones who know who they used to be, back in Brooklyn, before. Lovely introspective Steve/Bucky. *sobs* #epic tragic century long love story #till the end of the line

They've loved each other longer than most people they know have been alive.

The Principle of Terrestrial Mediocrity by [archiveofourown.org profile] AlphaFlyer
"Security?" they both say at once, in the same snarky sort of tone that would probably piss me off if I wasn't from California, and Barton gives the Parker kid a little wink and a slap on the arm. Like the kid said something fiendishly clever and funny and Barton just found his soulmate or something.

I explain to them about Scott and the job – more about Scott than about the job, 'cause Scott and I were in jail together and so were Scott and Hawkeye, which makes us practically cousins. Barton seems to agree and offers me a slice of pizza.
Luis gets a job as a security guard at Stark Tower. Hee! (Though why Domino's? Nobody in NYC would admit to eating Domino's.)

Steve often puts his fingertips on your collarbone. Your scapula. On the little white dimples where the arm was screwed into your bones. He's always noticing the differences between your serums. You don't heal as fast as Steve, but you have more endurance. He's faster than you. You're more flexible. But this: you know this hurts him. That you scar. That they gave you scars. That you gave yourself scars, fixing what they did. You don't think he'll ever stop being angry about that. He'd sooner stop breathing. Sometimes, you think, if Steve ever stopped eating, the serum might sustain him on anger alone. Lovely sequel to "through smoke, solid ground" (previously recced), in which Bucky is a few years on in his recovery, but challenges persist.
