Fault Lines - lucymonster - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
"Look kid," says the proprietor, "you seem nice. But I run a solid business here. I need people I can trust." Every elite security agency in the world wants a shot at him, and he can’t fucking beg his way into a menial job throwing drunks out of a strip club.

Or: after the collapse of SHIELD and Hydra, Bucky Barnes tries to build a new life for himself.

Running Through My Veins (An American Masquerade) - CheeseWrites - Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
For all Steve’s bravado, his disregard and his blind determination, Bucky knows that neither of them thought they’d end up here – Bucky, with a body full of poison and secrets, a head full of landmines; Steve, with the weight of a nation on his newly-formed shoulders; both of them, with eyes for each other first.

At least that part isn’t new.

[Or, Bucky Barnes, from the rescue to the Commandos.]

I'm blind every mile that your burn - akaya - X-Men: First Class (2011) [Archive of Our Own]
He'd been to prison before. For killing a man that he didn't even know the name of. He can't remember how it happened, or rather, he's rather glad he doesn't remember, because he doesn't need additional guilt. He already knows he's an abomination of nature, a sick freak, who doesn't deserve to live with the rest of the society.

Haven of Rivendell, The
Book One of The Paths of the King, the biography of Elessar Telcontar. This tale of Aragorn begins when Gilraen brings her son to Rivendell after the death of Arathorn. There he grows up hoping he is the son of Lord Elrond. He meets his first hobbit, goes on his first orc hunt, and tries to balance being just a boy among all those great elf-lords. A note on Elvish I have put translations of the Sindarin/Quenya I've used at the end of the final chapter of the story.
