And Shadows Will Fall Behind by [archiveofourown.org profile] leveragehunters
AU where Steve is born in the modern era and never becomes Captain America, but Bucky still became the Winter Soldier. They meet and fall in love after Bucky breaks his programming. Lovely.

Better Than To Bend by [archiveofourown.org profile] silentwalrus
Bucky and Peggy come to an arrangement about Steve. Hot and funny.

Lay Your Shoulders to the Wheel by [archiveofourown.org profile] galwednesday
Prequel to "No, Mr. Bond, I Expect You to Pine" (previously recced), in which Bucky rescues Wanda and Pietro from HYDRA. Aw, Bucky instinctively being a good big brother even with his memories still hazy is so great.

Non-Prophet Organisation by [archiveofourown.org profile] leveragehunters
When a PhD student accidentally uncovers a plot to summon a demon and destroy the world, Captain America is the only one she can get to listen to her. Steve, Sam and Bucky will fly half-way around the globe to investigate, but can they get there in time to stop the ritual and save the world?

(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!

this has been a public service announcement by [archiveofourown.org profile] Nokomis
Peter finally gets to hang out with the Avengers after a fight with aliens and lets slip about Cap's PSAs. Hilarity ensues. (this is an apparently ongoing series with 2 complete stories so far.)

Save my life and I’ll save yours by [archiveofourown.org profile] Elendrien & [archiveofourown.org profile] gwyneth
They touched each other with hands that knew every contour and angle, even after all these years, all these lifetimes in between; kissed like they’d never forgotten the taste of the other’s mouth. And Bucky almost forgot what a brutal ruin of a human being he was when he saw Steve’s luminous smile as he drew back, pressing a thumb to Bucky’s lower lip. Lovely AU of Civil War where Bucky gets some time to recover and the plot makes more sense.



Wonder Woman/Captain America

We Happy Few by [archiveofourown.org profile] thedeadparrot
They meet, as is fitting, on a battlefield. Icy cold, covered in snow, a tundra empty of all life except for a partially buried HYDRA base. Soldiers dressed all in white spill out from the base, weapons in hand. Captain America and Wonder Woman! Crossover OTP! This is lovely.

between everything, yourself, and home by [archiveofourown.org profile] napricot
Steve laughs, and—miracle he had scarcely dared to pray for—Bucky does too, a brief but bright burst of sound that Steve hasn't heard in decades. If he could have, he'd have cupped the sound in his palms like sweet water from a well, he'd have swallowed it down as if he were dying of thirst. Instead he turns his face into Bucky's shoulder to hide the sting of sudden tears, and Bucky brings his metal hand up to cup Steve's head, thumb stroking briefly across the line of his jaw. The shaky breath Bucky lets out says Steve's not the only one abruptly affected.

Steve's heart beats faster, too much gratitude and love to fill its four chambers. Bucky's heart is as steady as ever, the metronome by which Steve has measured his life, and Steve tries to match it again.
Exquisitely lovely recovery for Bucky (and Steve too), with lots and lots of delicious pining. (Peggy is mentioned but oddly absent otherwise.)

Cards Against Certain Avengers by [archiveofourown.org profile] somehowunbroken

All That We Were by [archiveofourown.org profile] paramountie
Peter and Johnny wake up married and it's freaking them out. Johnny pines so deliciously *sniffle*

The Soul of Love by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
Peter was different than Johnny had imagined he'd be, with them together, whenever Johnny had guiltily let himself imagine it. He was goofy. A little ridiculous. Stupidly romantic. It had been so long since Johnny had had this, and never with the sheer intensity Peter poured into it.

Johnny didn't know why he was surprised; everything about Peter was like someone had turned the knob up to eleven. All the complaining he did as Peter pulled him to his feet was a bad cover for how much he loved it.
Wistfully sweet Johnny/Peter.

find the words and the beat by [archiveofourown.org profile] irnan
But he was on his feet faster than she knew, even off his game like this, so that when he caught a hold of her and called her Natalia in that tender urgent voice she wasn't ready, wasn't ready at all. She could love Bucky Barnes if she let herself. She was halfway there already. She'd never really stopped loving the Soldier. It hadn't exactly been the sort of situation where you got closure and moved on like normal people; maybe in a few more years, or if he'd never come back. The jet was spinning, and he was so warm behind her, and it hurt, everything hurt all the damn time, like a muscle she could never relax, and she didn't know how to make it stop. Achingly lovely Bucky/Natasha.

"He made me promise, swear up and down that if we were still single fellas at thirty, we'd get married—"

"I was drunk!" Steve protests. "Men couldn't get married then anyhow—"

"— and said we'd set up house and be confirmed bachelors together for the rest of our lives, away from women and their cruel, mysterious ways," Bucky continues over him, waving the ring. "And here we are. Won't you marry me, Steve? Make me the happiest man in the world, say you'll be mine."

He would not let anything happen to Steve, not as long as he could reach out, hold something of Steve to him.

Storm by [archiveofourown.org profile] cadignan
For all his joking, Bucky doesn't know how to navigate this situation any better than Steve does. He doesn't want to fuck things up.

God, what a relief not to be alone.

"Don't look at me," Steve says, holding his hands up. "I don't tell her what to do."

Peggy stalks over to the two of them and puts her hands on her hips. "Of course not," she says to Steve, affronted that he would even bring up the possibility. But then she softens. She comes close enough to touch him, lifts her hand and runs her fingertips down his mud-flecked cheek. Then she raises her other hand and yanks Bucky down by the collar. She kisses him right there, eight inches from Steve's face.

It's better than anything Steve imagined.
Super-hot, sweet, and just a touch sad Steve/Bucky/Peggy.

Upgrade: Advanced Happiness Skills by [archiveofourown.org profile] owlet
If his mission is to enhance Steve's well-being, it is definitely mission-compliant to cause him to smile like that, simply from Barnes wrapping his fingers around Steve's wrist. If his mission is to live a good human life, it must be mission-compliant to let himself touch Steve's hand, to let himself stand close while they put their arms around one another.

Once, hugging felt like restraint and no air. Now it makes him want to give gifts, and maybe even to whistle. Barnes thought he knew happy, but this is a new kind of it. Advanced happiness skills.
Bucky discovers hugging and touching (and kissing) with Steve is A-OK. SQUEE. ADORABLE.

The towel falls away altogether. Rogers sits back on his heels, forehead scrunched up, blinking rapidly. "Yes, Buck," he says, in a voice that suggests he is in the early stages of asphyxiation by invisible noose. "As a matter of fact, I did."

His marble-blue eyes are glassy with a sheen of moisture. The Asset experiences a surge of emotion he can only describe as guilty panic. He is fairly sure making Captain America cry constitutes a war crime by the standards of the Geneva Convention.

The Middleman

The Roommate Transposition Irritation by [archiveofourown.org profile] DesertScribe
Fortunately, Sensei Ping was able to sympathize with her about crappy landlords, because even celibate martial artist monks couldn't go around introducing disrespectful lessors to Pain's River without being chastised by their peers for giving their venerable order a bad reputation. Of course, Sensei Ping's version of sympathy came in the form of stepping up the intensity of the practice exercises and extending the session by several hours when world ending dangers continued to not interrupt them. Wendy figured it was a great alternative to going home and punching Pip in the face, because even though she now knew a chokehold that would induce two day amnesia (with much greater reliability than what those luchadores did to Tyler) so Pip would never remember who hit him, she did still have a conscience. The whole 'with great power comes great responsibility' thing meant that she couldn't go around beating up guys just for making her mad anymore, even though she only had awesome hand to hand combat skills instead of actual super powers. Something's weird in Wendy and Lacey's illegal sublet! Wendy's on the case though. This is so perfectly Middleman, I can't even. <333

Odds Are (We're Gonna Be Alright) by [archiveofourown.org profile] lady_ragnell
Sherlock knows that had Project Insight worked as HYDRA intended, he and Joan would both be dead. The knowledge does not sit well with him. Sherlock ferrets out some HYDRA agents and he and Joan have to figure out what to do about them. Ah, this crossover is quite satisfying.

Young Avengers/Red Robin

Kate falls into Gotham and teams up with Tim until America can find her. Ah, Kate and Tim being snarky crimefighting bros makes me so happy.


James Bond/Avengers

A bullet is a kiss by [archiveofourown.org profile] tristesses
Natasha and Bond and some hot spy-on-spy action.

Second Mouse by [archiveofourown.org profile] AlphaFlyer
Highly enjoyable Avengers/James Bond crossover set post-Skyfall but pre-Iron Man. Barton and Bond team up to foil a HYDRA scheme, but a mysterious redheaded third party throws some complications into the mix. This is a really fun read.

Jane Foster's High School Reunion by [archiveofourown.org profile] Niobium
Jane takes Thor to her high school reunion. This is adorably sweet.

like autumn leaves, we're in for change by [archiveofourown.org profile] beardsley
In which Steve and Bucky were fake dating for an undercover assignment and SHIELD erased their memory of it; all they have to go on is a vague sense of something important missing, and all they can do is try to piece together a shared past they can't recall. Lovely, heartbreaking story about Steve and Bucky and SHIELD's ultra sketchiness. *whimpers*

So It Goes by [archiveofourown.org profile] DisappointMe
"I would leave, you know. I don’t want this, I just… If I run, will you go with me? If I pick up and disappear, will you come?" It's all he wants if he's being honest with himself. It's been all he wanted since Steve came back, but he only wants it if he can have it with Steve.

Steve's brow furrows for a moment, and he looks at Bucky like he's trying to decide whether it's a joke or not. Steve opens his mouth to say something, then seems to change his mind chuckling a little and shaking his head. "Sure, Buck. Of course."

He expects the disappointment because he knows Steve is just humoring him, but it still stings. Bucky smiles, sad and resigned and it probably looks more like a grimace, if the look on Steve's face is anything to go by. He goes on anyway, though, because it’s believing that they could have this that helps him make it through some of the long nights.
This is wistful and lovely and hopeful all at the same time. Sigh.

I've Been Careless With a Delicate Man by [archiveofourown.org profile] Paraxdisepink
Steve lets SHIELD think he and Bucky are boyfriends so they'll let him into Bucky's hospital room. He's surprised at how okay Bucky is with that. Aw boys. Adorable.

The One You Love by [archiveofourown.org profile] TsaritsaElena
Bucky takes care of Steve, then and now. Aw, heart.

Remember Pearl Harbor; Purl Harder by [archiveofourown.org profile] greenjudy
"I'm not an engineer," Steve said. "I'm a sock knitter. You know? Knit, purl, increase, decrease. This—this is not a sock." He jammed the stitches down the circular needle and tossed the snarl of pewter-colored yarn onto the coffee table.

"Looks okay," Tony said. "Oh. Wait. Not okay."

"Aw, knitting, no," Clint said.
Steve runs into a problem in his knitting. Luckily, Bruce is there to bail him out. This is adorable.

Silver Bells by [archiveofourown.org profile] AlphaFlyer
Clint & Natasha have to go undercover married - with a BABY - at Christmastime, to help rescue some kidnapped kids. Lovely and sweet without being cloying.

Snow Day by [archiveofourown.org profile] Traincat
"What are you doing?" Carol demanded. The Hulk narrowed his eyes at her.

"Finding Spider-Woman," he growled. Carol threw her hands up.

"I'm doing that already!" she said. The Hulk scowled, then set one huge hand on top of Carol's head and, very gently, rumpled her hair.

"Team up," he said. Shocked and frozen halfway through pushing his hand off her head, Carol couldn't really think of an argument.

As far as backup went, the Hulk wasn't exactly a bad choice.
Jessica disappears. Carol and Hulk team up to find her. This is adorable.

The scissors glint on the bathroom counter, a sharp silver that matches the spiral binding of Steve's notebook and the smooth surface of Bucky's arm. Natasha picks them up carefully, and Bucky finally opens his eyes, staring at their reflection in the mirror.

"How short?" she asks, and Bucky only shrugs a shoulder.

"Short," he says, and Natasha glances at Steve. Steve nods, waiting for Natasha to start trimming Bucky's hair before going back to his drawing.
Natasha gives Bucky a haircut while Steve sketches them. OT3 feels abound. *happy sigh*

Really well done Steve/Bucky/Buffy, which is not a threesome that would have ever occurred to me, but it really works in this story.

Captain Marvel

Necessary Research by [archiveofourown.org profile] Amy
It wasn't like Captain Marvel had ever just said stuff. Kit learned by paying attention. She knew Captain Marvel's favorite snack foods because she helped her unpack her groceries. She knew Captain Marvel's favorite music because the walls in their building were thin. And she knew Captain Marvel was in love with Spider-woman because she was eight, not stupid. in which Kit is adorably serious about being Captain Marvel's sidekick, and making sure she knows stuff when her memory is gone. Oh Kit. Oh heart.

"I think I might be a little selfish," Steve whispers to Bucky. "I think it's sweet that Clint and Kate share Pizza Dog, and I'm glad that Han can help Eli while his grandpa is sick, but ... "

Steve squeezes Bucky so tight that Bucky thinks his stuffing might burst from his seams. But that's okay; it's the kind of hug that is worth it.

"But I could never share you the way Clint and Kate share Pizza Dog," Steve whispers. "And I could never, ever give you away, no matter how important the mission."
*sobs* Bucky Bear is Steve's favorite. Oh my heart.

Harry Potter

For the Same Reason it's So Hard to Find by [archiveofourown.org profile] Laura
"You should have backup, and I'm incredibly good backup."

Remus knows he must have been breathing for the last few minutes, because his vision isn't blacking out or anything, but for the life of him, he doesn't know how. He drops to the floor beside Sirius, with none of the grace Sirius showed earlier. "Padfoot," he says.

"Seriously, really good backup. I can do magic and bite the fuck out of people."

"And that's even before you turn into a dog."
Remus and Sirius during OotP. OTP of OTPs. Oh my heart. *sobs*

Guided by the Beauty of Our Weapons by [archiveofourown.org profile] cjmarlowe
"Well, the nature of our relationship to one another is complicated," said Joan. "Even for your father—who does care about you, by the way, even if he doesn't show it in typical ways—who knows the particulars of my former employment."

"He thinks we should be clearer about the delineation between the personal and the professional."

"Well, I can't argue with that in principle," said Joan, "but since when do we let ourselves be defined by anyone else?"

"Since always," said Sherlock. "I believe that might actually be the definition of definition."

"Well, then it's time we stopped," said Joan. "You're my friend, and my employer, and my mentor, and I am your friend and your colleague and your sounding board. We can be all of those things, as long as we understand the nature of each of them."

"Clear boundaries," said Sherlock. "Consideration. Trust. Occasional bowls of late night ice cream."

Joan smiled at him. "I think we're getting the hang of it."
During a case drought, Sherlock and Joan continue to negotiate their relationship. Nice slice-of-life story.

"A midwife?" CJ repeats, again feeling useless and tired.

"Some things take longer to be born than others," Margaret says, and smiles, softly. "Good luck."
