    Summary

    The time period of Captain America: The Winter Soldier in the Wordsmith verse includes many of the same events, but not occurring in exactly the same way. The exposure of HYDRA, the fall of SHIELD, and the revelations about the Winter Soldier unfold, but Steve and Natasha don't face them alone--Tony and their other teammates are there to back them up! With Project Insight thwarted, how will HYDRA attack one of their major adversaries? What unexpected truths may be revealed? And what role does Chrissy play in the whole thing?

    Summary

    The mask stayed securely fastened. Through the fights, through jumping into the Potomac after his target, and even now when hiding in New York. The Winter Soldier's identity remained a mystery through it all. But the longer he's away from HYDRA, the more pieces start to come back to him.

    Or, the AU where Natasha is the one in charge of Bucky's recovery, and the only ones who don't know who he is are Steve and Bucky.

    Summary

    1973

    “Natashenka?”

    She raises her hand to cover her ear in shock. She knows the voice in her comms. Why? How?

    She doesn’t know what she is going to say, and even when she does say it, she doesn’t know why she says it. “Papochka?”

    Her handler turns to look at her. “What did you say?”

    The voice in her comms sighs, relieved. “My little girl. You’re alive.”

    --------------------------------

    2014

    These days Bucky knows for sure only a very few things, but one of them is that Black Widow is bad news and better dead than alive.

    ...if only Steve would just fucking listen to him...

    --------------------------------

    Or: Decades before the Winter Soldier went AWOL to contact Steve during his mission, the Soldier formed an unexpected bond with one of the little girls of the Red Room.

    When these feelings became a liability, HYDRA had to find a way to kill them for good.

    Summary

    Or, story ideas that I totally adore but will probably never flesh out to be a full-length fic. All ideas are free for you to use, and I can give you more ideas for where I thought these would go. Just let me know if you decide to adopt any. ;)

    1.) Clint/Tony - Iron Man AU where Clint (under SHIELD) goes to spy on Tony before the events of the movie
    2.) Tony/Steve/Bucky - "Merchant of Death" mob boss Tony Stark will stop at nothing to find Steve
    3.) Tony/Steve/Bucky - Tony kills bad people because he can't stand the idea of them getting off easy
    4.) Bucky & Clint - Clint was created by Hydra, using Bucky. They never wanted a father/son bond to occur, but they couldn't stop it when it did.
    5.) Steve/Bucky/Sam - Steve has amnesia after coming out of the ice, so SHIELD pretends he's an average Joe and sends him on his way. And then Bucky Barnes comes into his place of work and memories start shifting...
    6.) Steve/Tony - What if Steve was in the cave with Tony in IM1?

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers are left worlds apart (though not literally) after a rescue mission gone awry (and, y'know, the whole HYDRA thing in general), and are forced to try and pick up the pieces as best they can. While they both seem to at last be safe from the disaster that seems to finally have stopped unfolding around them, there doesn't seem to be much they can do to find each other again.

    That is, until Bucky finds himself at Steve's apartment, asking for help. Things can only go downhill from there, as Steve struggles to keep him hidden from anyone who would (justifiably) want to take him into custody.

    Still, they're back together again, right, even if it's just for a little while, not even full-time? That has to be better than nothing. Even if it's not perfect. So, they try to put up with it all-- Even if they wouldn't do it for anyone else.

    Just for a little while.

    Summary

    Ever since the Ultron affair blew over, things have calmed down for SHIELD. The heroes are rising up to face their challenges: thieves, traffickers, terrorists, tabloids. Every week some pundit or group pops up claiming that SHIELD is behind some grand conspiracy to kill all the non-sheeple, and every week the team has a collective laugh about it. But when the allegations start hitting from close to home, the heroes have no choice but to do a little off-the-books spying against their own organization--and uncover a web of dirty secrets too awful and entrenched to imagine. As the survivors struggle with their experiences in light of this knowledge, the heroes must venture beyond the structures of SHIELD to truly be a shield exposing these diabolical schemes and stopping them from being carried out any further. Captain America: The Winter Soldier rewrite.

    Summary

    A darker version of the world in which Ultron wins, the Avengers lose, and Tony learns the meaning of "be careful what you wish for". The hard way. Tony and Bruce create Ultron as a peacekeeping asset which backfires in the most horrifying way possible. Ultron is a master manipulator and the mess in Sokovia is really just part of a larger power-grab. With the world in a headlock, a guilt-stricken Tony surrenders to Ultron and it’s pretty much all downhill for Stark from there.

    Summary

    When Steve first met Sergeant James Barnes during the New York invasion, he flipped Steve off for calling him a civilian, then roundhouse kicked an alien in the face.

    They haven't stopped seeing each other ever since, and Steve thought it was normal for him to latch onto the first person who befriended him after coming out of the ice.

    Nope, turns out he was just pining.

    Summary

    Falling isn't as scary as it looks. It almost feels like floating in water would, that same sensation of being suspended, but everything around you is moving too. It's stagnant, like time has slowed to a crawl. It's quiet, too. Surreal. It's not scary. Not even the inevitable death waiting below, snapping its jaws at you.

    Steve remembers the wind rushing around him as he fell. Remembers the distant screech of metal bending and breaking in ways that metal should never bend and break. He remembers the fiery heat exploding around him, sending debris hurtling in every direction. Most importantly, though, he remembers the wild look on the face of a man he never thought he'd see again. Remembers the way it grew smaller and smaller the further he fell.

    The last thing he remembers before he hits the water is wondering if this was how Bucky felt when he fell.

    And then he lets the water consume him.
