    Summary

    The year is 1333. The English are at war with Scotland. 19-year-old West Country knight Sir Steven excels at jousting, but yearns to prove himself in real action. So he jumps when his sponsor, Baron Alexander Pierce, invites him on a secret mission with a dozen elite knights. They ride north to a crumbling Scottish keep, capturing the feral, half-starved boy within and putting the other inhabitants to the sword. And nobody knows, or nobody is saying, why the flower of English knighthood snuck over the border to capture a savage, dirty teenage boy. Pierce gives the boy to Steve as his squire, with only two rules: don't let the boy escape, and convert him to the English cause.

    At first, it's hopeless. The Scottish boy is surly, violent, hoards sharp objects, and eats anything that isn't nailed down. Then Steve begins to notice things: that, as well as Gaelic, the boy speaks flawless French, far better than Steve's own. That he can read it – Latin, too. That he isn't small so much as desperately under-fed. That when Steve finally convinces the boy – James Buchanan, Bucky – to cut his filthy, matted curtain of hair, the face revealed is the most beautiful thing Steve has ever seen.

    Wonderful historical Stucky fic. So much interesting detail as well as an excellently paced story and bags of background colour. Highly recommended.

    Summary

    “You seem distressed, my angel. Are you not pleased with the match? The word from court is that Lord James Barnes is an upstanding gentleman, not given to the wild circles around the Prince Regent. And Steve, it was he who asked for you. The young man has kept you in mind all these years -- despite our circumstances.”

    A pleasant Jane Austen-esque AU, featuring a climactic (ho ho) sex scene which even this demisexual enjoyed.

    Steve gets drugged to the gills, and Peggy and Bucky have to deal with the fallout. Note: dubcon of the sex pollen variety, though it’s as consensual as sex pollen can get.

    A lovely piece which is a tad deeper than just sex pollen porn. Features a very well observed Peggy whose dialogue is much more appropriate to 1940s Britain than it is in a lot of fanfic.

    Summary

    “It’s not that bad.” Hermione tries to amend.

    “Not that bad?” She whispers harshly, self-consciously pausing to see if she’s accidently woken anyone up. “One of them is an assassin.”

    “A brainwashed ex-assassin,” Hermione corrects. “The distinction is important, Harry, they’re your soulmates.”

    “And that’s supposed to make everything better? Assassin on the streets, sexy in the sheets?”

    Hermione stutters and Harry can almost feel her blushing through the phone.

    “That isn’t what I meant and you know it.”

    Harry can hear her own breath crackling through the phone when she sighs, “I’m sorry. I just… I never thought that this would happen to me.”

    “You mean two super soldiers from the 1940’s as soulmates? I don’t think anyone would’ve.”

    Sounds like crack, but works surprisingly well.
