“…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook……
Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been.”

Title: The Heart Wants What It Wants Song Artist: Selena Gomez Fandoms:Captain America, Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier Character/Relationship: Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes (Winter Soldier) Length: 3:38 Warnings: Typical movie violence. Some fast cutting. Vid Summary: You may be looking at the song choice and thinking, is she serious right now? The answer is, yes. Yes, I am so serious right now.
Natasha felt something cold settle in her gut. “How long?”
Wanda said, “I’m sorry, I’m so sorry.” Then she said, “Twenty years. They’ve been alone in the jungle for more than twenty years.”
Adult, AU, AO3 users-only. This fic is like nothing I’ve read before. Steve and Bucky get stranded in another dimension without their memories – and when they return, their friends have to cope with two people who’ve somehow merged into one. Absolutely fascinating!
Bucky enrolls in a college course about Captain America. It doesn’t go well.
Teen, humour, fanart. I absolutely adore fics that show us Steve through pop culture – and this adds another layer by being presented in the form of Bucky writing a hilarious essay ranting about everything the media got wrong.
“You liked that, didn’t you,” Bucky hums from behind, his mouth up close against Steve’s ear. Steve’s fingers stumble, tipsy, as he tries to stick the key in the lock of their front door. “You liked all those pretty soft girls dancin’ around in their tiny little panties. Lie to me. Tell me you didn’t.”
Adult, PWP. Holy smokes, this is the hottest drunk sex EVER.
It’s meant to be casual, all of it, but for Bucky that was months and endless kisses and fucks ago. Sometimes he wants the ability to go back in time just to be able to laugh at his younger self; laugh and point at him when he first fucks Steve and thinks that’s all it will ever be. He’d laugh as he tells him how he’ll agree to see Steve again and how, that next time, Steve will kiss him slow and sweet and it will never be casual again. He wonders what it would be like to watch himself fall.
Adult, no powers AU. In which Steve and Bucky are The Worst at casual sex – this is warm and funny and sexy, a totally winning combination.
Coulson, for his part, stares up at Bucky with such a betrayed look of frozen horror that Natasha actually goes the extra step and presses another button, capturing the moment and airdropping the photograph to her phone for posterity. When he speaks, his voice comes out as a hoarse whisper. “Why…?” He swallows and starts again, trying for some semblance of normality. “…Why would you tweet something like that?!”
“If you must know, sir,” and somehow he manages to make ‘sir’ come out with the same inflection most people reserve for ‘motherfucking son of a bitch’, “it’s because I have a difficult time doing my job when my job involves monitoring the man with the best fucking ass in the United States of America.” He slowly lowers himself back into his seat until he’s at eye level, making extreme eye contact with Coulson until Coulson turns away to make mortified eye contact in Natasha’s general direction through the one-way glass. Natasha would take another picture, if she weren’t too busy catching Steve’s red-faced sputtering. “Sometimes, I vent to my Twitter followers. Sometimes, it’s about hot men with washboard abs. Can I go now, or do you need a graphic description of how I pleasure myself at night?”
Oh my fucking god, this cracked me up so hard! I’m not usually one for modern!Stucky unless it’s a complete AU, but this is just brilliant and made my day.
The moment Steve’s fingers wrap around the metal, Bucky lets out a gasp as if he’s just been punched in the gut, and drops back down onto one knee with a sway that threatens to make him topple over. However, when Steve moves to help, Bucky flinches, shaking Steve’s hand off with a startled yelp.
“Don’t touch me!” he growls.
Adult. This should be crack but instead it’s both full of feels and seriously sexy.
