One Cloud Feels Lonely - Chapter 1 - thecommodore_squid (orphan_account) - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“I’m going to take a break for a while,” Steve said quietly, not looking at T’Challa, not knowing that this was what he was gonna do until the words were out of his mouth. “I can’t be on a team right now.”

T’Challa nodded as if he understood. “Alright.”

In which Steve and Bucky both figure out how to be a person again, and it still takes them over 130 years.

|| Bucky tells Steve to go away before he goes into cryo in Wakanda. Steve listens and does a runner for 30+ years.

I had to suspend my disbelief a little with the initial premise (that Steve wouldn’t be stubborn enough to hang around), but guilt is a helluva drug.

Love this fic regardless as it explores a much darker side of longevity and Steve. Also I am here for Bucky having kids to care for because I just want him to have all the nice things.

to memory now I can't recall - Chapter 1 - Etharei - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
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.

|| So damn good.

Tell Me No Tales by seastruck
Cody survived the war. And he'll survive the Empire, even if it kills him.

Or: Years after Order-66 destroyed everything he'd fought for, Cody finds himself as an inside agent for the rebellion after his chip malfunctioned. Along with a small group of of clones, he navigates dealing with a merciless Admiral, saving people he thought were long dead, dealing with his ghosts and - maybe - his ghosts coming back for him.// I discovered this story yesterday and I just couldn't stop reading. Magnificent. Fantastic characterizations, especially Cody's voice, but everything is so compelling here, from characters' psychology and emotional tension to the action-packed scenes. A wonderful read.

Heat Stroke - Chapter 1 - cleo4u2, xantissa - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
Captain America and the Winter Soldier meet for the first time in 2015. Now Bucky, after years of torture at Hydra's and more as a prisoner of S.H.I.E.L.D., is being given the chance to gain his freedom. All he has to do, is complete a mission with a team he can't stand while following the orders of yet another pompous, controlling Alpha. Steve thinks he can get his team through their most difficult mission to date, so long as he can get the smell of the Winter Soldier's heat out of his nose.

|| Epic AU that will take you through a rollercoaster of emotion. Excellent take on ABO trope and nicely plotted out mix of action and drama.

Blooded Crown [Astolat]
“You need not thank me,” Emhyr said. “I have an ulterior motive.”

It annoyed Geralt to be surprised. He should’ve known from the start. “Yeah?” The words came out with a little bite. “Have another daughter you need me to track down?”

“If I wished to hire you, I would hire you,” Emhyr said. “No: I want you to come to my bed.”

That Is Not A Cow - Chapter 1 - mandarou - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve crouched down again, slowly, so he was on the same level as Bucky. “You remember me?” he asked desperately.

Bucky looked down at the portal remote Steve still held, then narrowed his eyes when he met Steve’s. “You let some yahoo experiment on you again, didn’t you? Some mad scientist said, ‘hold my beer,’ and you pushed the button, right?”

|| Really have to read the first part to understand this.

After Dishonor on Your Cow, MCU Steve and Bucky reunite and then go a Magical Mystery Tour of the Multiverse with Clint, Sam, and Tony. Lots of mishaps, bonding, friendship, and revelations.

You may think you were all out feels after Dishonor on Your Cow, but this is the All Your Feels Express Bus to Feels Town, Population You.

WIP. Mandarou says on her Tumblr she's been sick, so hence it stalling at chapter 19. Still, I have no regrets.

Dishonor On Your Cow - Chapter 1 - mandarou - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
“Sergeant Barnes?”

“Oh, hell no, don’t call him that, man,” Sam warned.

“Captain Fuck Off!” Barnes shouted over him. “Fight me!”

Steve didn’t know whether to laugh or just slink away. He managed to combine the two by pacing two steps and snorting instead. Like a bull.

“I’m gonna need you to calm your ass, Barnes,” Sam said as he went limp again, obstructing Barnes’s struggling under him. “This is so undignified. That is Captain goddamn America.”

“Captain goddamn America!” Barnes repeated, louder. And angrier.

Steve cleared his throat again. “I’ve been looking for you,” he told Barnes.

“I hope you brought lube this time!” Barnes shouted.

|| This is splendid. AU with Captain America!Steve/Modern!Bucky where Steve gets Bucky dishonourably discharged from the army after the Battle of New York.

Also love the Bucky and Sam friendship here.

intertwined - Chapter 1 - moonythejedi394 - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
In the beginning, God made the heavens and the earth. And then God made humans. Some he made Alpha, some Beta, some Omega. There were some that he made for each other. Some were born to gravitate to one another, their hands made to hold, their hearts to love. Sometimes it wasn’t always easy, some loved and lost, or lost before they could love. Some were nudged towards each other as infants and ripped away as soon as adults realized they were two halves of one whole. Some lives are so intertwined, that if one died, it would be too cruel to not let them both go.

Whatever God had made, it wasn’t what the world had taken it to be. In 2011, the frozen body of Captain America was found in the depths of the Arctic, hauled out and thawed. The world waited with baited breath for their favorite hero to smile in thanks for having been saved. The world waited. And waited. Captain America never thanked them. Steve Rogers, who would have rathered stayed dead, cursed them.

In 1945, just a few months after the death of Bucky Barnes, Steve Rogers drove the Valkyrie into the ice without a second thought because it was the end of the line. Not because he was a brave Alpha, but because he was a grieving Omega.

Scumbag Villain's White Lotus Halo - shorimochi - 人渣反派自救系统 - 墨香铜臭 | The Scum Villain's Self-Saving System - Mòxiāng Tóngxiù [Archive of Our Own]
Shen Yuan was tired of playing Friend B, Passerby A, Cannon Fodder C... he wanted to play a role with some spotlight, even if it had to be a villain's role! Luckily, the world of Proud Immortal Demon Way offered just the perfect role for him - the scumbag villain, Shen Qingqiu! Shen Yuan went ahead and took the role - along with what he had been told was the villain's halo, a special item that can make him the perfect villain!

Too bad the intern in charge of the counter was too busy playing Solitaire and had given him the white lotus halo instead - a halo perfect for the heroines.

If They Haven't Learned Your Name by silentwalrus
Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

“That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

“You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

20th Century Limited by Speranza
"Where am I? Where is this?" and he was in Brooklyn, he was on a beach, the train was shaking around him. He was in the plane, ice splintering up onto the windshield. He was in a tank, tubes trailing from his face, from his groin. Christ, he was cold. There was still ice on his fingers. He was in the Grand Canyon. He was in Times Square. This couldn't be Times Square. Where the hell was this? "Tell me! Where am I, who are you, where's—" —Bucky?

|| This is a really great fic which you should read. I cannot read this more than once, because it just breaks my heart thinking about it.

Shen Yuan never expected to transmigrate, so when he does, he's at least relieved he hasn't become some poor cannon fodder character in that shitty novel he just finished reading. But as he navigates his new life, he discovers that isn't the case at all—he's landed himself right in the role of a minor villain in Proud Immortal Demon Way.

Except ... why are things different from how he remembers them? And why did the white lotus love interest turn into the villain instead??

Stiles is a forensic tech with the San Diego FBI. He thinks he's been fairly lucky, since he's never had his life threatened, sustained few injuries, and only has to work with his least favorite agent every once in a while.

And then all of that changes.

Eventually she ends up as the History professor at Hogwarts and takes care of the horcruxes as a casual footnote. Fun if very OP.]
