'On Your Way Up to the Light' - Avengers etc. (Steve/Sam, Bucky/Sam)

'On Your Way Up to the Light' by Dira Sudis - In order to be Bucky, he had to learn who Bucky was. His first instinct was to gather intel via surveillance, but that would mean observing himself, which would only be holding a mirror up to an empty mirror. Bucky wasn't supposed to be emptiness all the way down--Bucky had a name and a friend--so he would have to fill in the information some other way. Steve/Sam, Bucky/Sam.

'Parallel Constructions' by freshbakedlady - Sam comes into his own home with deliberately loud steps, and smooth, slow movements, and forced cheer. “If we’re having a slumber party, I'm gonna need to stock up on pizza and beer.” He shoots Steve a look that says he would prefer it to be tequila and more tequila.

They’re in Phoenix, chasing a lead Natasha sent them on a guy seen lurking around a senator, when Bucky finds them.

'persistence of memory' - Avengers etc. (various)

'persistence of memory' by hollimichelle - It’s a nondescript sort of a Wednesday morning when the Winter Soldier walks into SHIELD headquarters, bold as brass, and announces his intention to surrender. As he drops to his knees, hands behind his head, and is swarmed by heavily armed agents, he does consider for a moment whether this was the best idea he’s ever had. Not Cap2 compliant. Steve/Bucky, Natasha/Bucky, Steve/Natasha/Bucky, Steve/Natasha.

'ghosts in the machine' - Avengers etc. (various)

'ghosts in the machine' by hollimichelle - Two can keep a secret, if one of them is dead. Peggy learned the truth of that a long, long time ago. She’s been left with a lot of secrets to keep, down the years. Like: Peggy Carter doesn’t age, not like a normal woman. Peggy Carter faked her death, with a little help from Howard Stark. Peggy Carter found out there was a cancer at the heart of SHIELD, and she’s been trying to stop the rot for a long, long time. Steve/Bucky, Steve/Peggy Carter/Bucky, Bucky/Peggy Carter.

There's irritation threatening to break through her usual façade, and he wonders for a moment what she will do if she actually loses her temper. "So, not sex. What do you want, then, Agent Barton? Money? Some kind of favor?" Clint/Natasha.

'Dungeons and Hawkeyes' - Avengers etc. (Clint/Phil)

'Dungeons and Hawkeyes' by inmyriadbits - Clint startled and turned as she stepped forward into the light. His bow was drawn and ready, eyes sharp and guarded — and if anyone knew how dangerous that look could be, it was her. Then he grinned, and relaxed. "Hi, Katie," he said. "I'm here to rescue you!" Clint/Phil.

'Break the Sound and Change the Season' - Avengers etc. (Clint/Phil)

'Break the Sound and Change the Season' by torakowalski - “Coulson,” he admits and then, because it’s important, “I’m not going to sleep with him.” Apparently that isn’t reassuring enough, because she goes tense and smacks him. “Ow. What happened to me feeling no pain?”


“That was before I knew just how stupid you were being. You can’t date Coulson.” She smacks him again. It still hurts.


“I know.” Clint does know. That doesn’t stop him feeling kind of miserable about it. “I’m trying not to. It just kind of keeps happening.”

Clint/Phil.

'Why Then Oh Why Can't I? by ladyblahblah - “Well, I'm glad to provide you with some amusement,” Steve says wryly, lifting his beer in a self-deprecating salute. “I didn't even know places like that existed. That is.” His cheeks are heating up again, and he silently curses his fair skin. “I knew there were men who . . . I mean, there always were, even back . . . then. But now there are places like that, and everybody knows about them, even.” He takes a drink. “And you say the world hasn't changed that much.” Steve/Bucky.

'Contingencies' - Avengers etc. (Gen)

'Contingencies' by misachan - Clint knows it's only a matter of time. He can feel in in the back of his mind, lurking there like a cancer doctors couldn't quite get all of, a tiny pinprick of ice that he knows any moment can metastasize and overwhelm. He can't risk letting himself be compromised again. Gen.
