Something wicked is coming for Steve Rogers. Luckily for him, something even more wicked stands in its way: the unrepentant, unbroken Bucky Barnes.

A murder-mystery/action thriller with violence, magic, and several big MCU guest stars.



I know how I missed it, actually - I started reading when it was first posted, and got the (incorrect) impression that it's Dark!Bucky or Evil!Bucky, and it isn't, really - but it is a fabulous BAMF!Bucky.

Series: Part 2 of Ain't No Grave
Summary:

It's six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.


For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don't. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It's very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.


I AM SORRY FOR SHOOTING YOU.


Steve sits down hard on the steps.

Summary:

Steve would do anything for Bucky. He tore the world apart and chased HYDRA back into the shadows. He stepped back when Bucky turned himself in to the feds. Now that Bucky's broken himself out of custody in order to take down the corrupt agency that tried to use him again, Steve'll be damned if he doesn't stand by him. The only problem? The Winter Soldier swears he's not Bucky.

Or, genetically altered superheroes point guns at each other.

Summary:


There wasn’t anything left to salvage. That’s what Fury believed. It would have been a kindness to put him down.

When SHIELD finally releases Bucky from custody, Steve struggles to decode behavior that ranges from curious to downright alarming. But with Hydra scrambling to regroup and SHIELD taking more and more questionable measures, Steve is dragged back into battle, forced to weigh what's best for Bucky against what's best for the fate of the free world.



Can I just add how interesting it is that, like, all fanfic these days (as far as I can tell) casts the Agents of SHIELD team as the villains?

Summary:

Steve lives in Stark Tower and doesn't have much to do when he's not going after Hydra strongholds. He attends charity events to make Pepper happy. He goes hiking with Sam. He hangs out with Clint in Bed-Stuy and watches Dog Cops. Sometimes Tony gives him super alcohol in a sippy cup. Sometimes he sees Bucky out of the corner of his eye and wonders if it's real or if he's starting to lose his mind.

Alternately, the one with terrible jokes, a foot chase through the Lower East Side, and a tiny little robot named Shitcan.

Winter's Children, by Neery. A really fantastic take on the "Bucky needs to raise little Steve Rogers clones" story. It's Steve/Bucky, but there's also a gen version, if you're into that kind of thing.

Summary:

This is a war story.




.... I fell asleep and dreamed that the latest Captain America movie featured a scene where Bucky, Natasha, and Steve all fell asleep together in the same bed, and then Natasha and Steve woke up and had sex, while Bucky watched - and the scene was filmed so as to suggest, but never really show explicitly, that Bucky joined in (because the filmmakers needed to protect their PG-13 rating). And of course fandom went crazy, but mostly I was upset because the lighting was so dim that I couldn't figure out how I was going to effectively vid it.

But seriously, it's an excellent story - Ces's particular preoccupation for these characters is to really get inside the history - what it was like during the war years, and what kind of people came out of that era - both in terms of core characterization and also in terms of basic mannerisms. So this story really explores the horror of war, and how it impacted Bucky and Steve's relationship. It's beautiful.

Summary:

While on a mission storming a HYDRA facility, James Buchanan Barnes touches one of the many strange alien devices collected by the Red Skull. He does this, in fact, twice— in the past, and in the future.

Next thing he knows, Bucky Barnes is opening his eyes in the 21st century, which is full of great gadgets and coffee, and at least includes his old pal Steve. (And, inexplicably, a different Stark.) Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier finds himself in the middle of World War Two, helping Captain America hunt down HYDRA (which is at least familiar), pretending to be Bucky Barnes (which is not), and figuring out the very noisy group of soldiers who call themselves the Howling Commandos.

Series: Part 1 of We Made Ourselves
Summary:

Then Bucky licks his lips, tip of his tongue just grazing the sensitive skin of Steve’s ear and Steve moans. Nothing close to the surge of lust behind his ribs, but a tiny, breathy sound all the same. Bucky doesn’t react—he must not have heard. Though a minute later he curls his fingers and extends them again, moving just slow enough for it to be a caress.

Just tip your head into his touch. He’ll take the lead and trace the folds of your ear with his tongue until you can’t keep quiet any more. Then he’ll smother your desperate little noises with his mouth, fingers twisting in your hair. Kissing deeply, tongues reaching to declare your filthy intentions. Find his knee with your hand and slide wolfishly up his thigh until you reach the bulge behind his fly. Palm him through his trousers until he’s panting in your mouth, until he’s pressing his forehead to yours, hips bucking, and you can see his dark eyes, glinting in the screen’s flickering light, pleading—

Steve jolts back to the present. The credits are rolling and Bucky is reading them as well. The screen blacks and two fluorescent lights buzz to life. Bucky loosens his hand from Steve’s head, welcoming the world back in.



This one gives new meaning to pining and slow build, so if that's your thing (it's definitely mine) you'll enjoy. Has an interesting style where it switches between Bucky and Steve POV, and second and third person - it sometimes goes too far and gets confusing, but most of the time it creates a really interesting effect.

When he realizes, she’s actually attracted to him.

Summary:

Even the strongest personalities, when subjected to great physical, emotional, and sexual abuses, can splinter, or dissociate.

Bucky Barnes lives a nightmare after falling from a train and being recovered by Hydra. His mind deals with the trauma by splintering into the soldier, the prisoner, the patriot, and the assassin.

Years later, they team up to save Steve Rogers.



This is actually the first story in a series so it has kind of a cliffhanger ending, but it's still an awesome (if painful) ride.

Summary:

The Winter Soldier's mission is nearly complete. Howard and Maria Stark are dead, leaving him to dispatch their four-year-old child. One quick twist of the neck is all it will take, but the Soldier finds he cannot do it.

So instead of killing Tony Stark, the Winter Soldier takes him away to raise as his own.



Also, the story ends in exactly the right place, which means it leaves you desperate for more - and happily, another fan wrote the "more," here. It works very well as an unofficial coda to the original story.
giandujakiss: (Default)
Here's a 123K-word doozy - really careful, really thoughtful, slow-build description of Bucky's recovery and how Steve helps him through. Warning: This story pretty much kept me from doing everything else I was supposed to do today.
