    There will be consequences, should they find him. But whenever he stops to question his decision, he sees the blue eyes and feels... something. And that something is telling him he has to keep this child safe or die trying.

    —————

    It’s 1955, and a decade after Captain America ended the war and settled down, the Winter Soldier is on his first real mission. But he encounters a child that he cannot bring himself to kill.

    Summary

    When Tony snaps his fingers he knows he won't survive which is why he doesn't expect to wake up. Especially not at the bottom of a mountain in the 1940s right after Bucky's fall. When they're taken by Soviets and later Hydra Tony and Bucky will need to try and escape but it won't come easily or quickly. It will take a long time to come home if home is what it ever was.

    One thing they have in common is that they both have a very long coming home story.

    ***

    Note: I've rated this work Explicit because there are very graphic descriptions of violence, torture etc.

    Summary

    This, this is his warzone, his shell shock, his PT-whatever letters Bucky wants to call it; Steve doesn’t care. Because it's here. Not a Hydra facility, a plane, or an entire world war. This is what will break his brain, in fact it has, already it blurs the edges of his vision, tunneling, drawing Steve's conscious away from the reality that's in front of him. The disconnect is so far, further than the distance he watched Bucky fall. The worst part is that Steve’s still holding on, he has Bucky in his arms, hands gripping tight and pushing hard against blood that is slipping through his fingers, promising useless words with a soundless mouth and praying hard, but nothing is doing anything but sending Bucky closer to death.

    If he’s not there yet.

    The aftermath.

    Summary

    "You know, I tried. When I had the gauntlet, the stones... I really tried to bring her back."

     

    Bruce's attempt to bring Natasha back with everyone else when he snapped his fingers fails. Or so they think. He can't bring her back to their reality, period... But that doesn't mean she can't come back at all.

    Summary

    “I know,” Peggy says, and takes a deep breath. Now or never, she thinks, and hopes to God she’s making the right choice. If she’s wrong… if Bucky is dead… then she’ll be raising Steve’s hopes for nothing. “Steve, there’s something I need to tell you.”

     


    Bucky falls, but Peggy suspects he has a version of the super serum. While Steve undertakes a final mission to destroy HYDRA once and for all, Peggy sets out on a mission of her own: to find Bucky, and, if possible, bring him home.

    Summary

    On May 29th, 1996, Anthony Edward Rogers-Stark is born to a still grieving and eternally 30 year old Howard Stark. His mate has been missing for over fifty years and now Tony, his miracle baby, is all the omega has left of him. On that day, Howard vows he would do ANYTHING to keep this child, who is half him and Steve Rogers, happy and healthy and above all LOVED.

    And so he does.

    Tony Rogers-Stark constructs his first circuit board at four, under the guiding hands of his mother. He puts together his first engine at 6, to Howard's blinding smile. He also gets into his first fight defending a little girl from a bully, with the stories of his father's childhood ringing in his ears. He becomes a superhero, just like Captain America, at twelve years old. He is 100% his parents child... BOTH of their child.

    But Tony has always done all of this with his mother beside him. Howard was the one who performed open-heart surgery on Tony in a cave in Afghanistan. Howard helped Tony create his first suit and then built one of his own to join him. For 13 years, Tony has always gone into any battle with Howard at his side.

    Then Howard goes missing...
    ...and all hell breaks loose with Loki at the wheel.

    Summary

    In 1928, Bucky Barnes follows Steve Rogers into an alley, and declares them friends.

    From then on they’re inseparable, constant companions in each others lives-- on the playground and off - sharing their dreams and secrets.

    But Bucky Barnes has a big secret. Born with the Shining, he has to navigate the world with a separate set of rules. And there are others who would hunt him for that power and feed from it.

    “Arnim. What do we have here?” Johann says from behind them. His eyes are wide and intensely focussed on the boy. He circles to the opposite side, trapping their prey in between them. The boy has become still, like a startled gazelle waiting for its chance to run.

    “We appear to have a sightseer Johann.” Arnim says. “Not from Germany it would seem, but speaks perfect German.”

    Johann stops in front of the boy whose eyes snap up and meet Johann’s cold hard gaze.
    Johann’s face splits into a cruel grin.

    Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers grow up, go to war, hunt Hydra, and fight to keep Bucky safe together.

    Summary

    Peggy Carter was underestimated just as much as Steve Rogers was; they, however, understood each other.
    She also knew that she will always be second for Steve to saving the world and fighting for freedom.

    When Steve comes back to Peggy a lifetime later, she sees that he struggles to find happiness in his life.
    Until he meets one James Barnes, and Peggy can finally stop worrying about Steve.

     

    A Stucky Bingo fill for the prompt 'Peggy Carter'.

    Part of my Taylor Swift songfic series and written for 'Cardigan'; can work as a standalone if you accept that Bucky and Steve only meet in the 21st century.

    Summary

    In 1945, on a train in Austrian Alps, it's not James Barnes that falls to his presumed death. Steve Rogers does. The show, however must go on. Bucky takes up the shield, and the title of Captain America, but still crashes the Valkyrie and ends up frozen in the ice for 70 years.

    In 2014, on a highway in DC, Winter Soldier asks: "Who the hell is Steve?" and the collar that his handlers use to control him starts burning his skin. Bucky Barnes is having the best and the worst weeks of his life simultaneously.

    (OR: When put under extreme pressure, Bucky Barnes' mind bends. Steve Rogers', though; Steve Rogers' mind breaks. Some say a clean break is preferable to the alternative. Is it, though?)

    Summary

    That little guy from Brooklyn. Not Captain America from Erskine’s lab. Bucky’s guy, his little sweetheart, all of the other names that Steve used to flick Bucky in the nose for calling him back in their shithole apartment. That’s who Steve wants to be no matter what body or goddamn uniform he’s stuck in.

    Summary

    After Peggy catches Steve and Bucky together she's understandably upset, but it's only when she's already lashed out in anger that it becomes clear to everyone involved quite how much the two men mean to each other.

    Now, much to Steve's surprise, the woman he'll never forgive himself for hurting is actually trying to help him make amends with his best friend, if only Bucky would listen. If only Steve could choose between them.

    Fortunately, Peggy might just have the solution to fix all of his problems.

    Summary

    In 1945, Agent Margaret "Peggy" Carter receives some terrible news. Steve Rogers aka Captain America aka her presumed boyfriend has been killed in action, along with his best friend, Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes.

    But she's never been the type to give up easily, and she's already lost too many people to let go of them now. Not when she keeps dreaming of snow and blood, mountains and cold. Not when she can still feel the warmth of two hearts beating together, suspended in ice, twin sparks like falling stars, refusing to be extinguished.

    Edit: Whoops. I thought I'd try something new and post this as I wrote it, but the was actually a bad idea. My brain just doesn't work that way, apparently. I didn't want to delete the entire fic, though, so I just removed the old chapter 1 and will be updating it when I have a better handle on the story as a whole.

    Summary

    In 1945, Captain America and Sergeant Barnes lead their elite unit of fighters, later known as the Howling Commandos, on a high-risk mission to capture Nazi scientist Arnim Zola from a moving train bound for Hydra Headquarters. In the course of the mission, both the Captain and his Sergeant fall from the train and are lost to the deep mountain winter.

    Ten memories, ten words: Longing, Rusted, Seventeen, Daybreak, Furnace, Nine, Benign, Homecoming, One, Freight Car

    Safe in the frozen embrace of the mountains, those memories belonged only to them, the span of two lives, the full measure of two hearts beating together.

    ***

    This is a slice of life story that details the ten memories from Bucky's past which could have been used by HYDRA to program the Winter Soldier, if he had been captured. Canon divergent historical AU. Part 1 lays the groundwork, Part 2 follows Steve and Bucky back home to Brooklyn after the war.

    Per Steve volare è come cadere senza mai temere l’impatto, per Bucky è come una cerniera che gli strappa la schiena e i denti bruciano quanto le fiamme dell’inferno.
