    Summary

    Riffing off the machine from Scott Snyder's run of the comic, which envisioned a future populated by and endless legacy of Batmen/Bruce Waynes:

    What does it mean to be caught in an endless series of lifetimes, in a changing world where you are the only constant? What is the value of a single life in that repetition? Isn't it a cruel joke?

    Holy shit I don't even know where to start. This fic is so fucking amazing and beautifully written. This paragraph took my breath away.


    "Cryptic, cryptic," Joker says. "Which secret was that?" His gash of a mouth splits in a smile. His whole body is violence, a masochistic exultation to the pain of existence. In stranger moments, Bruce sometimes imagines him dancing in the red hot shoes of a fairy tale that no one tells anymore. He imagines himself as the mermaid who trudged onward, bleeding from the toes that she willed into existence. Why are fairy tales so preoccupied with the ruination of feet? Maybe it's because tale tellers have always known that forward motion is pain.

    Summary

    Bucky's older memories are coming back, sometimes at the cost of more recent ones. What he cannot forget is tearing the wings off Sam Wilson. Too bad Bucky just let Steve talk him into staying with him and Sam. Consumed by guilt, the only thing Bucky knows to do by way of apology is to let Sam hurt him back. Fortunately, Sam has better ideas.

    There's warning for body horror yet I found this fic to be so achingly beautiful. Bucky is desperate to be forgiven, and Sam is just his regular awesome self while Bucky works through it.

    I don't have words. This hurt but it's so well written and deftly handled and there's a happy ending. Also AMAZING OCs.

    Summary

    After hours of being in this damn jet (and who gave Steve fucking Rogers a license to fly this thing anyway, hello, he crashed a plane into the Arctic on purpose once), they land in the middle of a field. Yes, a field. Literally right next to a fucking cow. They file off one by one, each taking in their new surroundings. Bucky moos hello to the cow.

    "Did you just moo?" Sam asks. Bucky shrugs, and Sam rolls his eyes. "You didn't say a fucking word the entire flight, and yet, you greet a cow. A goddamn cow."

    "Maybe it’s one of the twenty languages he can speak," Steve mutters, never taking his eyes off of his phone.

    Bucky sneers at both of them. "Where the hell are we?"

    "Right outside of Cut Bank, Montana. About 30 miles from the Canadian border," Steve answers, wrinkling his nose. "I got the coordinates right, this is the place."

    Coordinates his ass. "It's a farm, Steve."

    ***

    In which Bucky, Sam, and Steve learn to live together, Bucky and Sam learn to love each other, and Bucky learns to love himself.

    Summary

    "I'll keep watch," Bucky said, and Steve jumped. Sam could only manage a twitch, but he meant it with every fiber of his where the hell did you come from being. Bucky was just there somehow, standing in the slice of shadow to one side of the room's window. "Sleep, both of you," Bucky repeated. "I've got this watch."

    So perfect and amazing. One of the best Steve/Sam/Bucky stories. Wonderfully happy ending.
