    One of the very few fanfics I've (knowingly) read more than once. I loved the premise so much that it inspired a fic of my own: This is the Ghost Story.

    There are very few people who, when rendered amnesiac, would just roll with it. Bucky Barnes is definitely one of those people, and of course Jack Benjamin is too. Awesome.

    Summary

    There are some great quick guides to HTML on A03. This is not one of them - it is a comprehensive guide, dividing all of the available tags into the following categories:

    1. Text Formatting (in-line HTML)
    2. Page Formatting (block HTML)
    3. Tables and Lists
    4. Links and Images

    Each tag will have - at a minimum - a link to the w3schools page about it (so you can learn more), a code example, and the result of the code example.

    It will also introduce tag attributes, ways to further refine formatting, for a few simple - but widely applicable - cases.

    Summary

    Stories that begin with banishment, brainwashing and imprisonment don't normally end with coffee shops, moonshine and day-trips into Tuscany. But Bucky and Loki are hardly normal.

    AKA, The one where Loki gets captured by Hydra. But it isn't really about that. He and Bucky bust out of there by page two.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is one of those stories where I enjoyed how the author put the story together as much as the story itself. I can't describe it better than feeling like you're not just reading a story, but that the author has invited you to play with them in their head. This story is tense, tragic, hilarious, fascinating and satisfying. 'Delightful' seems like a ridiculous way to describe fanfiction, but it was. It was delightful. I haven't grinned all the way through a 20k word fic in a very long time.

    Summary

    Retired NYPD Detective Phil Coulson has always wanted children, but that dream was on-hold until a well-placed bullet nearly ended his career -- and his life. Now recovered and living on a farm away from the city, Phil's dreams of parenthood are about to come true.

    But hard-to-place children are hard to place for a reason, and even the most capable of brand-new dads can quickly get in over their heads...

    Summary

    Loki is only looking for attention when he runs away from the palace. Instead, he finds a friend. And a mystery.

    It takes a few false starts and a lot of complicated scheduling, but the boy from the impossible town becomes the clock by which Loki measures his life. (It isn’t just a metaphor. There’s literally a watch involved. And some lost marbles.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Straight up: I love how Loki has been written and played in the MCU films, but I don't particularly care for the character, and when I read this it was for the unusual Loki & Bucky friendship.

    That aspect didn't disappoint in the least, but this whole fic was just gorgeous, amazing, wonderful... The kind of reading experience where you feel like an idiot just listing superlatives. Loki is very, very much himself but also a completely sympathetic, lonely and neglected little boy. His POV is just fantastic (gorgeous, amazing, wonderful, etc.) and his all-too-brief relationship with Bucky is perfectly logical for the universe and gives Bucky a new (to me) but excellently plausible backstory as well. My only complaint is that the author isn't sure she'll write more of this story. I can only hope she changes her mind, because I so badly want to read about the continuation of Loki and Bucky's friendship.

    Summary

    Few soulmates are separated at birth by too much time – but when the distance becomes greater than one year all bets are off, with five years’ difference being equally as unusual as fifty.

    Yet the one rule that has never been broken is that the soulmates’ lifespans always overlap.

    So it came as something of a shock to the young boy in an orphanage in Brooklyn, New York, when his soul mark came in at the age of twelve and told him that his soulmate had been dead for almost sixty years.

    This was so sad, and so much fun, and so funny and hopeful. The author has one hell of a way with language and a light humor that lifts all but the darkest parts of this story, which you wouldn't want lightened anyway. I loved it. It was amazing.

    Summary

    A fateful encounter with Dr. Strange leaves the Winter Soldier transformed, and Bucky Barnes reunites with Steve Rogers in a most unexpected way.

    “Steve brings the puppy inside, into the apartment that doesn't quite feel like home no matter how much he's been trying. He isn't used to being alone. Before the war, he always had Bucky, and his mother until her death. During the war, Bucky was there, too—and the rest of the Howlers, of course—but Bucky always meant home. (And well, maybe Steve's already got a name for the puppy in mind)."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I was a little sorry that there wasn't more of the puppy, but the author made up for it with Damaged!Bucky's incredibly warped POV, and Steve's slow discovery that he really wasn't alone in this brave and terrible new world.

    I just wish someone had asked Dr. Strange why he'd turned Bucky into a dog--was it just the first spell he thought of to protect himself? Did he know Puppy!Bucky would find Steve (or vice-versa)? I know if I found out a sorcerer turned my boyfriend into a dog, I'd definitely want to find out why at some point. I also couldn't understand why Strange didn't help out with dismantling Project Insight (or at least, he wasn't mentioned).

    But, awesome POVs. Just awesome. :)

    Steve Rogers gave up on joining the army and worked for Stark Industries writing policy letters by hand. It's a dull job, right up until the office across the fire escape is given to an attractive stranger with one arm and no personal boundaries.
    Was going to be PWP but then there was like... a little plot? Steve and Bucky if Steve & Bucky never met as kids, I guess.

    I'm going to be honest: There are typos; there are anachronisms and grammar problems and the story could have used some American-picking. But it was so good that none of that mattered.

    I can't adequately describe how much I love this story. It was fun, it was fascinating and exciting and suspenseful, and going on two months later it still makes me smile when I think about it. It's simple and sweet and brilliant and romantic as hell. Just a wonderful story.

    Bucky worked the bag a while longer before collapsing on the floor, chest heaving, lips glistening as he licked them. This was provocation, Steve was certain. If he couldn’t get Steve to admit to his perversion, then Bucky would find a way to tease it out of him.

    Read this even if you'd never normally touch a western with a barge pole. The description is beautiful, the author really knows her stuff, and the characterizations are just wonderful. I loved how she worked MCU canon into the Civil War period.
