Really fun Indiana Jones mashup/AU.

it'll take a better war by [archiveofourown.org profile] napricot
Steve nods and looms intimidatingly. “We had a very productive conversation while you were unconscious.”

Rage contorts Zemo’s face into something ugly. “What?” he repeats.

“Did your whole plan hinge on us not communicating with each other like adults?” asks Tony. The look on Zemo’s face is answer enough. “Oh my god, it did!” Wilson offers him a hand up, and Tony holds his hands out to everyone for high fives. No one takes him up on it. So much for team-building. “Hey everybody, good job, we used our words and we derailed this guy’s whole revenge plan, we are so great. Next up, figuring out the Accords!” The power comes back on, and everyone flinches and covers their eyes for a second. “Wait, how are we getting Barnes out of here?”
A great fix-it not just for the plot dumbassery of Civil War, but for Tony and Pepper as well. Hilarious and adorable!

Perilous Underside of the World by [archiveofourown.org profile] eyres
"C'mon, Buck," he says. "Do you remember... we used to climb onto the roof on the nights it got too hot to sleep. Up over the fire escape."

Bucky stays just behind him as they work their way upward. "I don't remember," he says, not unkindly but wanting to be honest. "I don't remember much."

I don't know if I'm him, he wants to say. I don't know if the shape of me fits with the shape of him - with the shape of you. One morning, I'm afraid you'll look at me and realize I'm a stranger and your friend is dead and then where will I be.

He can't see Steve's face in the dark so they just climb.
Steve gets captured and experimented on, so the Avengers pull back together to rescue him. tightly plotted, suspenseful, and full of feels. Heed the warnings, though.

(All signs point to yes as an answer to at least one of those questions.)
Hee! This is hilarious. And it also has an equally funny sequel: Herd of Goats?

An Oblique Approach by [archiveofourown.org profile] Gray_Cardinal
"Oh, Tony. Trust me, the very last thing I want to do is go out and shoot fire at things with stupid numbers of people watching. Also, I'm pretty sure 'Human Torch' is trademarked already."

Tony sighed theatrically. "I get it," he said. "But trust me, you don't know what you're missing."
Tony fixes Extremis for Pepper, and it gives her a whole other suite of superpowers. Hee!

It Was Only a Change of Plan by [personal profile] sholio
It's mainly that she never expected to live this long. She has a contingency plan for everything except, as it turns out, surviving past her twenties.

And it keeps surprising her, the way that aging catches her off guard in small ways. It's not the big things -- those she expects, can prepare for. But she never anticipated how differently she'd think about things at thirty than at twenty; she never understood how a lifetime builds up, in ways that can't be undone. Everything she's done, every person she's loved or lost leaves a trace like scar tissue. It drags at her like half-welcome, half-unwanted luggage that she has to carry around with her everywhere, making it harder than it used to be to slip in and out of her many chameleon skins. Habits and likes and dislikes, old friends and old enemies weigh her down.

Natasha, at the end of CACW, pragmatic as always.

"I didn't say it was you. I assumed you have some other completely unrelated reason for being in the air duct above my head, looking down my top."

Barton's face turns an instant, dull red from ear to ear and temple to chin. "I wasn't-!" he starts to splutter.

"I'm sure," Darcy purrs, raising an eyebrow.

"I mean, I couldn't not, because, but it wasn't what I was..." Barton seems to realize he's digging himself deeper because he deflates and offers a helpless gesture with his hands. "There's orders involved, I swear."

"Dear Lord, do you two try to lace everything you say with innuendo or is it really that accidental?" Tony asks. Bucky catches Steve's eye before making his face go completely innocent.

"Sorry, Stark." He says sweetly. "Must be our boner."

Tony chokes. Steve and Bucky both keep their eyes wide and innocent. "Are you okay?" Steve asks earnestly.

Wanna Take You Home And Show You I'm the Best by [archiveofourown.org profile] Paraxdisepink
Bucky picks up his beer for a sip. It must be good beer, the way he tips his head back for a deeper drink, lips opening to let more of the neck of the bottle slide between them. The cold glass is green, his mouth redder by contrast, wet with condensation when he lets the bottle slip free.

Steve doesn't mean to stare. He tells himself it's the artist in him, that it's fascinating the way Bucky's mouth is almost too pretty for a man's, pouty and curving like something you would draw. Bucky's too well-trained now not to feel Steve's eyes. He meets them from across the room and slowly brings the bottle to his mouth again for another drink. His lips wrap greedy and tight around the glass, his throat working to swallow.

Steve's face goes hot, mortified that he immediately thinks of Bucky's lips somewhere else.
Bucky keeps distracting Steve with his mouth. Hotness ensues.

Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow by [archiveofourown.org profile] cjmarlowe
Bucky turned it over and over in his head that Steve had never been with a girl. It had honestly just never occurred to him, because it was Steve and Bucky thought Steve was just about the greatest guy in town. Everyone else should have thought that too. Sweet, achy first time for Steve and Bucky. Oh heart.

Now There's a Beautiful River by [archiveofourown.org profile] legoline
"Do you know why you always were such a bad dancer?" Bucky asks softly, his mouth close to Steve's ear.

"Because I was about as tall as a Hobbit?" Steve asks and Bucky chuckles.

"No," he answers, "The reason why you were such a bad dancer is easy: you love music too much. You got so distracted by the tune and the lyrics and the voices that you kept losing track of the steps."

Steve swallows past a lump in his throat that wasn't there just seconds before. He hadn't even thought about it that way, but trust that James Buchanan Barnes manages to see something beautiful even in something as silly as Steve's two left feet.

"I was thinking we could take a vacation." Pepper pauses. "A real one."

Tony blinks. "Is that code for something? Are we being surveilled?"

Pepper takes a deep breath and deliberately catches his eye, watching his expression settle into sincerity. "We haven't had time to breathe since everything happened. And that's not a good thing. I feel - I'm not sure how I feel, but everything's different and I just - " she takes another deep breath. "You're what I'm sure of. I'm sure of us. Everything else - who knows."
Really wonderful Tony/Pepper set after IM3.

When Steve was a slip of a thing, too much bravery crammed into that slight body, too much stubborn determination—the most infuriating human Bucky had ever met, and also the best—Bucky would have done anything to protect him.

The body changed, but everything else stayed the same.

Bucky thinks, long, hard, and often, about all the years that he wasn't there to protect Steve.
Steve has a secret he'd rather not share, but Bucky eventually convinces him to talk. Angsty and hot with just the right amount of emo porn to go with the regular porn.

Swan Lake and Slostivs by [archiveofourown.org profile] toujours_nigel
But it is such a lovely lie that she thinks she should be able to spend ten minutes with it, since she has no classes and only stewed beef grey as old snow to look forward to at dinner. And then there is the matter of his smile, and how he looks not ten years older than her, and how brave he must be, and how trusted if he is let wander into the decadent West to hunt down enemies of the State. It might take longer than ten minutes before she can begin to behave as though it is of no importance. Sharp look at Natasha in the first flush of love for the Winter Soldier. Oh honey.

hurrah for card games by [personal profile] recessional
There are parts of Steve that figure he probably shouldn't find the company of two master assassins (to quote Stark) quite as comfortable as he does. There's a lot about what SHIELD does and how it operates that Steve's not comfortable with and the nature of the covert ops pretty much covers two thirds of what he doesn't like. But there's something about both of them, when they're relaxed like this, that reminds him of his Commandos and those pub-crawls - long ago for the rest of the world and all of two years gone for him - they'd had time to make and even nights sitting around a fire complaining about how bad rations taste. And it reminds him without being so close as to yank up grief he's still trying to figure out how to deal with, so especially for now, he'll take it. Steve enjoys the monthly poker games at Maria Hill's house. The Clint/Natasha banter in this is great.

“Sir,” says JARVIS, “in response to the tone of your voice I have taken the liberty of drawing you a soothing bubble duck.” An image pops up on screen; it is, indeed, a line-drawing of a duck made out of bubbles.

Thor studies Tony’s face for a moment. “I will return with ale,” he says, and exits the room.
So JARVIS gets kidnapped and then the Avengers go on a time travel adventure of hilarity. This story made me laugh out loud several times - I had a hard time deciding between the bubble duck and the tomatoes for a pull quote.

They leave Bucky under the care of Hill and Sitwell and take a walk. They end up in Abingdon Square Park. The sky is heavy and no one else seems to want to stand and stay still. The city is full of people dashing about, and Steve thinks he could no more join in than he could turn into a flamingo.

“Thank you,” he says to Natasha.

“I didn’t do it for you,” she says.

Steve pushes his hands into his pockets, and leans back on the railing. “I know.”
Steve and Natasha bring Bucky back, and then deal with his recovery. I like how much Steve feels in this, even though he never quite articulates it, and how Bucky (and everyone else) knows.

Mighty like Love, Mighty like Sorrow by [archiveofourown.org profile] Regann
In those empty years, he had reacted to such displays in a variety of ways: sometimes he couldn't help but react with tears of his own, choked and burning in his throat, and sometimes there was anger when someone tried to twist it into something hateful and bitter, but there was always another layer of sadness to it. Because those people, no matter how well-intentioned, they only remembered Captain America -- the strong, handsome soldier in the newsreels and propaganda films, the carefully cultivated image that had sold war bonds and kept spirits from flagging the darkest days of war. There were so few of them left who did, or even could, remember Steve, especially the way Bucky did. Sometimes that dissonance was what drove him into hitching jags of ugly emotion, a weight of sadness-pain-loss that could steal his breath for days. Whatever HYDRA had done to trap him in this almost-ageless body, it hadn't dulled its ability to feel, no matter the source of the pleasure or pain. Bucky frees himself from the Soviets' programming and lives a lonely, isolated, empty life until the day he sees the new Captain America on the news and decides to give SHIELD a piece of his mind about not respecting Steve's legacy. It doesn't go exactly how he expects, but he and Steve get a happy ending after all. *happy sigh*

Night Run by [archiveofourown.org profile] LtLJ
Fury flowed along ahead in his dark coat, blending with the night, and Tony started to stock up Batman references to make later.

He didn't actually see the two guards Fury had taken out until he stepped on one's hand and tripped over the prone body of the other. He stumbled into Fury's back, and Fury whispered, "Watch it, Stark," and grabbed the shoulder of his hoodie to steer him around a third body.

"My God, you are Batman," Tony muttered.

"Shut up," Fury hissed. Apparently he was taking this whole thing personally.

The Personal (Assistant) Is Political by [archiveofourown.org profile] hollimichele
“I mean, you seem like a perfectly nice dame-- lady-- person! But I don’t want an assistant,” Steve says.

“Oh, I get that,” I say. “The question is, do you need one? Because at the interview, they made it sound like you did.”

“Well, I don’t know why they did that,” Steve said. “Honestly, I don’t mind spending an hour a week or so signing autographs, and they’ve even got the interns stuffing the envelopes for me now. And I like the fanmail. Most of it, anyway. Some of it’s a little weird.”

“Who’s keeping track of your calendar, then?” I ask. “And scheduling your public appearances? And managing your media strategy?”

“SHIELD generally lets me know when I have to do a meet-and-greet, and I’ve got them down to a reasonable number lately,” he says. “And there’s a calendar on the desk blotter. And I don’t have a media strategy.”

“Yes, you do,” I said. “I mean, right now your media strategy consists of ‘ignore them and maybe they’ll go away,’ but I guess that is technically still a strategy.”

“You think it’s working?” Steve asks, smiling crookedly.

“I really don’t,” I say.

Pepper and Natasha, post-IM3. Yes! This!

So if you grapple, get a grip by [archiveofourown.org profile] caughtinanocean
When a Department X trigger leaves Bucky without memories of his former life—or anything at all, for that matter—Steve and Natasha have a tough call to make. Thus, James, bartender and cat-owner, who absolutely hasn't got a metal arm, and whose roommate totally isn't a secret agent, and whose blood-stained nightmares can't possibly be real, comes into being.

In retrospect, it never was the best-laid of plans.
Oh Steve. Oh, Bucky. I love how Steve can't stay away, because of course he can't, and how some spark of Bucky is still there, beneath all the brainwashing, but even if he never remembers, Steve's going to love him anyway. *happy sigh*

The Right Thing in the Wrong Way by [archiveofourown.org profile] igrockspock
Pepper keeps the box on her desk and fills it with little mementoes of good things Tony has done: the opera tickets he bought her the time he actually remembered her birthday, and the tickets to the museum gala he gave her when he thought her birthday was in March. The Payless shoebox stays in the back of her closet because it was where her brother had stored his baseball cards and airline-sized tequila bottles, and she hasn't touched it since the day after his funeral, when she filled it with small souvenirs of his life.

Tony never asks why she keeps his box on her desk, and that's another reason she stays: he lets her pretend she's the functional one.
Really lovely, melancholy Tony/Pepper through the years.

You've been Tony Stark's assistant and his babysitter and his boss and his lifeline, but the role of martyr and monument was never one you sought. Excellent look at Pepper in the climactic scene of IM3.

"There are six and a half paces from one wall to the other," he told her. "The half keeps throwing me off."

She made a low frustrated noise and sat up, the thin blanket sliding down from her shoulders. "Take smaller paces, then," she told him. "Or better yet, get over here and get some sleep, like you were ordered to."

Iron Man/Spider-man

(Secret) Meeting Like This by [archiveofourown.org profile] BlackEyedGirl
Tony doesn't find most people that interesting. Spider-Man is definitely interesting. It's not even the secret identity thing – SHIELD is full of people who may or may not be using their legal name during interactions with Tony. Spider-Man's not even the only person Tony's ever worked with without seeing their face (he really hopes Fury knows who was on the other end of those Helicarrier conference calls).

The secret identity doesn't hurt the intrigue, but its main effect is just to make Tony so curious that he pisses the kid off. 'Kid' is still a hazy concept, but he's definitely got the age narrowed down to 'younger than me, old enough to drink' which is fair enough.

"There must be people who know," Tony says.

"Why must there?"
Adorable bantery Tony/Peter that remembers Peter is a science geek.

thirty two flavors (and then some) by [tumblr.com profile] gyzym
Excellent Rule 63 Tony Stark. I find Tony much more sympathetic as a woman at the moment. Tony wears her hair short because it's less likely to get caught up in the engine of her Lambo. Tony keeps her nails cut because she bites them, actually, thanks, have you never heard of a nervous habit? Tony wears her shirts low and her jeans lower, because she knows what she wants and she's not afraid to take it. Tony wears sunglasses, because she knows her fucking tells.

DCU/Iron Man

On The Care and Feeding of Superheroes, by Pepper Potts and Alvin Draper by [archiveofourown.org profile] galaxysoup
Tony convinces Tim Drake to train Pepper as his sidekick/witty best friend. Oh my god, this is so perfect. I especially like the idea of Tim and Tony geeking out in the workshop. (I also really want to watch Tony be jealous and petulant when Pepper meets/flirts with/hooks up with Dick.) (I also DESPERATELY want the Lady Blackhawk/Captain America hookup fic mentioned in the notes. SOMEONE PLEASE WRITE THAT ASAP. Ahem.)

Jim Gordon looks out for an injured Robin until Batman arrives on the scene, and gains some insight into their relationship. Aw, this is adorable.

Kon discovers that Tim once wore Jason's Robin uniform (i.e., the green scaly panties) and it makes him a little crazy. This is ridiculously hot.

Loki's bad, but he's not that bad. This is long (well, the sequel is long) and hilarious. (The entire sequel is in the threads and linked where it spills into another post. Also archived here: http://katsu-fic.livejournal.com/38180.html but without internal links between chapters, and not completely yet.) (Note: she misspells Rogers as Rodgers a few times.)

Darcy is Peggy Carter's granddaughter, and Captain America owes her grandmother a dance. This is really lovely and suffused with melancholy.

"I get no respect," he tells Thor. "No respect at all."

"A true leader earns the respect of his followers," Thor says. It's a little like being lectured by a very earnest golden retriever puppy.
Ahahahaha! Thor and Tony bond. Adorable!

So Darcy's still a virgin. It's not a big deal or anything, but Clint wants to make her first time special. Funny, sweet and hot.

Salt On Your Lips by [archiveofourown.org profile] Memlu
Really lovely bit of Thor/Jane, but what I like best about it is how comfortable and warm they are together. I like that they laugh and joke while they're having sex. It makes them feel real.

Thor/Iron Man

Just Temporary, Ma'am by [personal profile] sutlers

"You're my date?"

"It's not a date," Clint said carefully, as if he'd been coached.

"Uh-huh."

"It's a morale-boosting experience," he added, making Darcy pause where she was scooping her bag off the floor to stare at him. There was the beginning of a shit-eating grin flirting around the corners of his mouth.

"That makes it sound like you're being whored out to me," she said finally.

"All undercover SHIELD operatives receive extensive rentboy training."

"Are you expected to spend a lot of time lying back and thinking of America?"

"That's more Steve's style."

"Yeah, all right, I'm not touching that one," Darcy said, shouldering her bag. She took another look at Clint and decided she probably wouldn't mind if he were being whored out to her, hypothetically: after a college career dating three economics majors, an engineer, and a future master of public policy, his biceps looked pretty good. So did his ass. But that wasn't the point.


fake dating + Darcy = AWESOME

If Pepper Potts were a superhero, her superpower would be appearing silently out of nowhere while wearing sky-high heels.

The Losers

gauntlets of +1 warming by [personal profile] katemonkey
They had to admit it — everyone on the team was freaked out when Jensen started knitting.

Not so much that he knew how to knit, because that seemed like the kind of dumbass thing Jensen would pick up, like how he kept 20-sided dice in his pack, or how he could make shadow puppets out of duct tape and spare weapons. And no one really raised so much as an eyebrow over the fact that he picked it up on one of his trips to see his sister — Beth was at that age where she'd learn it at Brownies, or Campfire Girls, or whatever sort of group you send little girls with genetic tendencies towards being freakishly smart and frighteningly hyperactive to.

No, what freaked his team out was when Jensen decided that the best time to knit was right in the middle of a goddamned mission.
Ahahahahahaha! ♥
