jen's steve rogers/james "bucky" barnes fic recs


steve rogers/james "bucky" barnes
  • A Place Called Home by Renne [New Years Eve. Suits. Party at Stark's place. Honesty happens.]
  • All That Matters (or The Law According to Bucky Barnes) by sparklyfiend [Of the few hard-and-fast rules in Bucky’s life, the one that he seemed to encounter the most was that “Steve always gets sick.”]
  • At Any Given Moment by honeypuffed [PROMPT: Steve and Bucky find out that everyone thinks they're sleeping together. Like, the Howling Commandos cover for them to give them alone time, and General Phillips and is all deny deny deny, if I don't see it I don't have to do anything about it. Basically, everyone knows Steve and Bucky are in love except for Steven and Bucky.At first Steve and Bucky are amused by this - really guys? really? But then they both think about it for a while and are like, why aren't we together?]
  • Beneath a Blue Umbrella Sky by musesfool [Steve's been to Coney Island before.]
  • Christmas in Brooklyn by antiquitea [Though they don't have much of anything, Bucky wants to make Christmas special for Steve.]
  • Counting Backwards by honeypuffed [PROMPT: Asexual Steve/Bucky cuddles and support and non-sex based relation of awesomeness, yet still obviously a romantic relationship?] 
  • Friday Night Is Date Night by sparklyfiend [PROMPT: Steve and Bucky go on a date, but they have to pretend like they're just friends, since it's the 1940's and they can't afford to be 'out.']
  • Here Comes The Bride by sneakertime [Bucky learns that the Howling Commandos call him Mrs. Rogers behind his back.]
  • I'll Let Go if You'll Catch Me by ani_bester [Becomes old assumptions are turned on their head, and with the new knowledge comes new fears about what Karpov might have done to him. Luckily Steve is there to lend an ear.]
  • I’ve Been In Your Body And It Was A Carnival Ride by postcardmystery ["Name, rank, and serial number," they tell Bucky Barnes, in Basic, and he doesn't nod, just repeats it every night before he goes to sleep, remembers.]
  • In Love and War, Don't Seek Counsel by sinuous_curve [Most of being Steve’s -- or Captain America’s, really -- right hand man entails busting into Hydra weapons factories and blowing them to hell with stolen Hydra weapons, making sure that Cap has room to use his superpowers to the greatest effect while no one on their side gets killed in the process. Bucky used to be afraid every single time he heard the sharp report of gunfire, but since Cap came and pulled him out of a very literal hell, there isn’t much room left in Bucky for something like fear. Dying can’t be worse than what Schmidt’s pet scientist did for kicks. And being a part of a team as special as the one he’s on now keeps him feeling like he’s varnished in heroism. It’s more brilliant explosions and less humping it through sticky mud in the rain.] 
  • It Wakes The Seeds by sharksdontsleep [They still call him a sharpshooter, even if they let Bucky bring his own rifle, not a Sharp, a nine-pound breech-loader that feels like certainty when he slings it across his back. Bucky and Steve, becoming who they become. Civil War era AU.]
  • Little Shots Who Keep Shooting by sinuous_curve [It takes Howard Stark three days to knock together Steve’s uniform, which is a testament to his manufacturing abilities that he cobbles together what he needs so fast and so well. Steve steps out with his hands spread, shoulders shifting beneath the unfamiliar weight of the new duds and says, “Not too shabby, you think?”]
  • Make a Heart Beat Again by Renne [In which Bucky is finally given the missing pieces of the puzzle and finally understands why Steve never came for him, and why Steve's been beating himself up over it ever since.]
  • New Heights by honeypuffed [PROMPT: Bucky can't stop thinking about sucking Steve's cock. One night, when he's quite drunk, he mentions this to Steve.]
  • Nothing You Can Name by togina [Sgt. Barnes and his unit are in Italy, making camp and waiting for orders. Conversation turns to the girls they've left behind, and Bucky's thoughts turn to someone else left behind.]
  • Radio Silence by soldierly [Four days, three hours, sixteen minutes, and twenty-two seconds from their destination, they run out of oxygen.]
  • The Distance Between That Was Sheltering Me by noharlembeat [The last day before he goes to Basic, and Bucky still hasn't told Steve. The entire neighborhood seems to have it out for him, no less.]
  • The Nearness Of You by sharksdontsleep [The radio is playing a low song. They're set to deploy again, 0600 the day after tomorrow. Two luxurious days of R and R seems like an indulgence, but Phillips had said it was a mandatory indulgence, and Steve didn't see the point in arguing, not with Bucky's hands still shaking.] 
  • The Same, but More by shell ["I know you're still you, Rogers," Bucky said. "You're just…" he trailed off, studying Steve closely. "Just what?" Steve asked, flushing. It was Bucky's turn to shrug. "Just more, I guess."]
  • The Way That You Move by acidpop25 [The minute Steve meets Bucky, he knows he's in over his head.]
  • To Have and to Hold by necchan [The little moments where one fell deeper in love with the other.]
  • Untitled by sneakertime [PROMPT: The first time they have sex post-serum, Steve couldn't quite control his strength. Nothing too serious, Bucky gets some bruises, but Steve feels terrible. Bucky's just trying to figure out how to make it happen again.] 
  • Untitled by necchan [Their first kiss came in multiples.]
  • Where the Circle Ends by Renne [In which the world has gone to hell in a zombie apocalypse handbasket and, in the middle of it all, Steve finds the one person he never thought he'd see again.]
  • Wisps On The Air by sparklyfiend [PROMPT: There's something about the way Bucky's cigarette dangles between his lips; Steve gets caught staring.]
  • You've Been Acting Awful Tough Lately by postcardmystery [“So you’re not dead,” says Steve, as they make their slow way through a muddy forest, and Bucky grins likes a light clicking on, says, “Nope. Let’s drink to that.”]
  • the sirens and the thunder by legete [“Hide that,” he says, forcing the words out past every instinct. “As well as you can, all right? Before morning.” Steve stares at him blankly, like he needs a moment to work this out, then swallows once, sharply. "What's your name?" he asks at last—asks as he stands there with the pelt in his hands. And oh, he thinks suddenly, what is his name? He can’t speak it, not with this mouth, he can’t sing it into the air like he can in the ocean. He just shakes his head; like his nakedness, it’s something he can't explain. Steve nods, just nods, his eye swelling shut and blood drying on his shirt collar, and says "we’ll figure it out."]
  • soar, wheel, gulp, and dive by victoria_p [Steve and Bucky have had two first kisses.]
  • but hey, you're all right by beardsley ['This is not my fault,' Tony lies. 'It was supposed to be a joke! Christ.' 'Thanks to your joke,' says Coulson, 'we now have a code three-four-delta, with the variable being a Russian immigrant. We're checking his background right now, but it might take a while. Meanwhile, I suggest you civilian-proof the Tower. If any SHIELD intelligence is compromised, I will hurt you.']
  • Why Then Oh Why Can't I? (or, 5 Times Steve Rogers Felt Awkward Talking About Sex, and One Time He Stopped Talking Altogether) by ladyblahblah [“You really never did grow up all the way, did you, Steve? Of course it changes things. But hey.” He lifts his glass, and Steve reluctantly lets go to join in the toast. “Who says change has to be bad?”]
  • Five Times Bucky Got Permission by copperbadge [People keep trying to tell Bucky something, and he's getting very confused.]
  • devil's gonna follow me (wherever I go) by Lyaka [The man who used to be Bucky Barnes lined up his shot. His finger twitched, only once, very precisely. Help me, the bullet sang. Ninety-eight floors below him, the bullet glanced off a vibranium shield with a musical ping. And Steve Rogers looked up.]
  • escape from new york by beardsley [On Monday morning Thor parades bare-ass naked around the Tower; it all goes downhill from there. Or, the one where New York gets infected with alien sex pollen, Steve appears to be the only sane man, and the things that ensue include hilarity, fake zombies, pining and surprise makeouts. And a bear trap.]
  • make one dream come true (you only live twice) by beardsley [Five times the Winter Soldier evaded capture.]
  • Once you've fallen from classical virtue by lanyon [And, yes, there, leaning against the kitchen table, cradling a mug of coffee between two massive hands, is his blonde mystery man. “I know this is going to sound strange,” he says, immediately. “But I don’t suppose you know who I am?” The blonde man blinks and the corners of his mouth turn down. “Damn. I was hoping you could tell me who I am.”]
  • this city bleeds its aching heart by Renne [The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.]
  • baby baby baby come back by gyzym [You and me? We’re not the war.]
  • Parachute by RemoCon [Sam would follow Steve anywhere. But he didn't expect Barnes to follow him into Starbucks.]
  • Selfies from the Underground by eleveninches [Tony reminded himself that the second the incorrect password was entered, the phone would destroy itself and any data on it. And there was no way someone named Tepid the Magnificent would guess--“I’m in,” said Tepid. “Soon I’ll know all of the Avengers’ secrets.” Tony briefly closed his eyes. “Steve. What was your password?” “It’s ‘password,’” Tepid replied.Or: Tony and Steve get captured.]
  • lethe by black_nata ["Do it," he goads. "Do it or come back home with me and let me help you. But you gotta do it now, Buck, because I can't take another moment of this hell."]
  • World of Our Making by fmo [The Winter Soldier isn't Bucky Barnes. But SHIELD needs him to be.]
  • Shadow Dance by AvaCelt [Someone stalks Steve. Steve starts to go crazy. That someone is Bucky, so of course, everyone else is bound to get pulled into the crazy as well.]
  • Such stuff as dreams are made on by Odsbodkins [Steve and Bucky are the dream couple, high school sweethearts who went to college together and now years later are still ridiculously in love with each other. Unfortunately, 'dream' is probably the operative word.]
  • Soft Spot for the Hell Raisin' Boy by ifeelbetter [The Winter Soldier takes an interest in Sam Wilson. Bucky Barnes wants to tell him how to be Steve Rogers's best friend.]
  • Hotel Service by Odsbodkins ["The one where Bucky is one of the reception staff in an upmarket hotel and Steve's a wealthy businessman who stays there regularly. They're involved in a heavy flirtation but neither of them have quite gotten up the courage yet to take the next step."]
  • 10, 15, 18 by rageprufrock & waldorph [In which Stephanie Rogers is a good girl, not an obedient one, so nobody's surprised she gets mixed up with that no-good Barnes kid. More a series of vignettes than a full story.]
  • Feast by rageprufrock [Unrepentant girl!Steve and Bucky smut -- then and now.]
  • When I feel down, I want you above me by lanyon [In the twenty-first century, Steve Rogers still has inordinate difficult talking to women, or men, or anyone with a pretty face. Tony Stark suggests that he try calling a phone sex line. Under the influence of severe exhaustion, he does just that. He has no explanation for why he keeps calling, though.]
  • To make bright and clear your path by lanyon [He tries to find himself but everyone else is looking, too.]
  • Steve Rogers at 100: Celebrating Captain America on Film by eleveninches,FebricanthellotailorM_Leighneenya & tigrrmilk [Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.”]
  • boom, crack by Febricant [He has the name James Buchanan Barnes. It is not his name, but it is a thread.]
  • Mistake on the Part of Nature by idiopathicsmile [In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you're thinking of.]
  • lonely houses off the road by Etharei [Barnes is now glaring at him for some reason. It's somewhat terrifying but also, oddly, a little reassuring— because that's emotion right there, which means there's still somebody behind those eyes. Somebody who seems to think Sam is being a bit slow on the uptake. "Time parameters exceeded. Mission failed." "Wait." Sam narrows his eyes. "Is this some kind of... report? Debriefing?" "Mission report," confirms Barnes, looking pleased. Well, looking slightly less murderous than before. In which various people deal with things they never signed up for, but at the end of the day no one's particularly surprised.]
  • Critical Feline Mass by Kryptaria & rayvanfox [A love story in twelve chapters, including two Harley-Davidsons, a guardian angel, multiple snipers, the only woman who can scare them into behaving themselves, spontaneous kittens, and one attacking sheep.]
  • if ever I feel better by lazulisong [For once in his life, Steve has managed to time the day where he's still too weak to object to being spoiled but not so weak and sick that he's scaring the devil out of Bucky to line up with a day that Bucky can stay home and spoil him.]
  • It's Heat Like That by idek_idic [Bucky honestly hadn't intended anything by coming home covered in the scent of an omega in pre-heat, but he realised what a mistake he might have made when he pushed the door to their little apartment open and immediately found himself reeling back from the sensory assault that was overpowering their rooms.]
  • Middletown: A Study of Suburban Life by M_Leigh [In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering.]
  • Reconstruction by rageprufrock [In which Stephanie Rogers is the complicating element in the sweeping romance of Bucky Barnes and Lady Liberty.]
  • Brevity is the soul of lingerie by Odsbodkins [Unrepentantly silly, fluffy porn involving lingerie, important questions about ducks, underpaid evil minions and boring meetings.]
  • haha, jk by relenafanel [(A tale of Not Unrequited Love) Steve: I love you. Bucky: oh no. (and other fallacies) Bucky learns to never say never when it comes to the effect his best friend can have.]
  • The Horizon Is All We Have by smilebackwards [The one bright spot in Steve’s monotonous, token-collecting mornings is a flash of red hair and a slide-away smile.]
  • 5 Times Steve Woke Bucky Up, and 1 Time T'Challa Did by mambo [“Do you know when there are people in the room with you?” Bucky shakes his head. “You’re not alone,” Steve says. He’s quiet a moment before adding, “I come as often as I can.”]
  • Steve Rogers' Dad Face and Other Common Hazards by AggressiveWhenStartled [Today, Peter was honest-to-god going to see Captain America himself up close, in person, and not from a rooftop or tiny crevice like a creepy stalker fanboy. Even better, he was going to watch Steve Rogers make history by soldiering his beleaguered way through the most intensely awkward and honestly ridiculous press conference in the history of ever-- jaw thrust out and spine ramrod straight. Trying hard to be polite and respectful in the face of adversity. While a bunch of assholes with cameras and microphones shouted at him about Iron Man’s adolescent dick.]
  • Three Men in a VW by Slenderlock [Steve steps back into the car and closes the door, lips still tingling. “You don’t like blondes,” Bucky says. Sam chokes.]
  • Civilians, GDI by relenafanel [Special Agent Bucky Barnes doesn't think of himself as a hero. He's dedicated to his career, and if that keeps him far away from home, all the better. His parents think that he should get a less dangerous job and meet a nice Brooklyn girl (or boy) to settle down with. In Brooklyn. That sounds like Bucky's definition of a living hell. He's been running from it for years. Enter Steve Rogers. Brooklyn boy. Not always nice. Hot as hell. And a temptation Bucky can't resist, even after their initial failure of a meeting.]
  • Never Talk to Strangers by mambo [Never Talk to Strangers: or; How a Forgotten Childhood Lesson Led Bucky Barnes to Appreciate Charlie Chaplin, Befriend an A.I., Slip on Soap Bubbles, Be Mistaken for a Succubus, and Try to Woo a Superhero.]
  • Captain Fantastic and the Pineapple King by buckyfuckybarnes [The five times Steve received a pineapple (and one PiƱa Colada) and the one time he didn't.]

  • star spangled eyes by Goldmonger [Rick Flag delivers letters. Floyd Lawton pines.]
  • Hugger by snb123 [Floyd Lawton didn't do hugs. Well. He was willing to make an exception.]
  • Just Like A Tattoo by winnix [Harley gets a tattoo gun.]
  • Standing in the Rain by Chaylay23 [See, Rick's got this idea that he needs to pay Lawton back for saving his life. He just goes about it the wrong way.]
  • the cuckoo bird by kay_cricketed [It's only a matter of time before Waller finds a new way to keep Rick and Task Force X leashed. She can't completely count on the team's dubious affections for Rick and espresso machines, so extra leverage is in order. Enter Zoe Lawton.]
  • 7000 Miles Out by Goldmonger [After an overseas mission, the squad waits to go home.]

  • In a Different Frame by sunfair [Holster is determined to become somebody's boyfriend. Too bad he's kind of an idiot. He figures it out, though.]

jen's keith/lance fic recs

  • A Fish And A Bird by Methoxyethane [Lance has a boyfriend. Lance does not realize he has a boyfriend. Keith, understandably, does not react well.]
  • Cheeky by rideahorse [Keith pinches his eyes shut, slamming the book down again and swiveling to face Lance. “Oh my god,” he groans, standing up and crossing the two feet between them before Lance can get out a word. He grabs Lance’s face between his hands (perhaps a bit rougher than needed, but hey, he’s always wanted to slap Lance’s stupid face) and the last thing he sees is an expression of pure surprise before he leans down and presses his lips against Lance's. It’s a peck, and it lasts a second, and then it’s over. Keith leans back, releasing Lance’s face, and hisses, “There.”]
  • We Who Are Ever Watchful by CheckeredCloth ["You should rest," the healer continues, and Lance snorts humorlessly. "And be grateful that his... unique physiology has aided considerably in the healing process." Lance lets that statement bounce around in his tired brain for a moment, and something about it doesn't quite sit right. "Wait," he murmurs, rubbing a hand over bleary eyes before squinting back up at the healer. "'Unique physiology?' What the hell does that mean?"]
  • so why don't we fall by aknightley [Five times Lance used a pet name for Keith, and one time Keith used one for Lance. Keith has no basis for having a relationship with someone, so he's trying to follow Lance's lead.]
  • eyes wide to you with wonder by aknightley [Keith doesn't dislike his job, but he definitely dislikes Lance. Probably. Maybe. "Coran thinks you'll bang at the Christmas party but I think that's giving you guys way too much credit," Pidge says thoughtfully. "Hunk is a romantic. He thinks Lance is gonna ask you out any day now. I think he's got a week or so before he owes me like a hundred bucks." "Pidge, what the fuck?" Keith says, flustered. He nudges them again with his foot, this time slightly harder. They scowl at him, swatting him away. "Why would you bet on me and Lance?"]

alexei mashkov/kent parson
  • Dot Your T's and Cross Your I's by CoffeeStars [Zimmermann's mark, the first thought his soulmate will have about him, is on his stomach. It is not the first thing Kent thinks when he meets Zimms. Kent's own markings are illegible. His soulmate must not think much of him, but it's okay, because Kent doesn't think much of himself, either, as he bandages up his forearm and hides.]
  • Lord, What a Difference a Day Makes by CoffeeStars [Kent time travels (he thinks; it’s either that or he’s gone off the deep end once and for all), gets married to some Russian guy built like a tree, acquires two children, one of whom isn’t even his, freaks out, and grows up. In that order.]
  • Kenny's 2 Months of Cooking Dangerously by CoffeeStars [Kent has a mid-life crisis at 27 and starts cooking his way to enlightenment with his teammate, like that woman from the food movie about Julia Child. Or something like that. Mashkov also keeps tweeting at him, and he doesn't know why.]
  • four years in the making by sarcasticfishes [He knew that off the ice, the guy was a bonafide teddy-bear; on the ice, there was nothing teddy-like about him, or the way he stood a clear six inches taller than Kent.]
  • Cloud Nine by TheUnvanquishedZims [Alexei has no idea why a member of a rival NHL team is in his hospital room, but he's not complaining.]

jen's draco malfoy/ron weasley fic recs

draco malfoy/ron weasley
  • Don't Let's Start by skoosiepants [He smiled a very small smile, thinking that the sleepy-eyed, mussed Malfoy he'd stumbled upon that morning had been the most appealing thing he'd seen in years. Which was, when he came right down to it, a truly horrifying thought. Ron really needed to get out more.]
  • Dance the Night Away (aka. It's True Love, you Bastards) by Evandar [It wasn’t Malfoy’s fault that Ron asked him to the Ball as a joke and then chickened out of admitting it. Everything else, however, is Malfoy’s fault. All of it. Except…Ron really can’t bring himself to care.]
  • Go Far by skoosiepants [The Pegasus Galaxy wanted Ron dead.]
  • Ron Weasley and the Forgotten Boyfriend by EntreNous [Ron Weasley has forgotten something very important. Now if only he could remember exactly what it was. Fortunately, or not so fortunately, he has Draco Malfoy to help him put the pieces together.]
