“Do you want to go somewhere more… private?”

The blond man, after a long silence, had agreed. “My room is just up the block,” he said, jerking his head at the bar’s door.

A non-powers AU in which Steve gets a blue slip home, where he meets the 10 years younger Bucky. They build a life together, beautifully rooted in the historical reality of being a gay couple in the 1940s.

When the mask falls off Steve recoils.

He’ll never forgive himself.

Canon divergence in which Hydra disfigured Bucky’s face, this is haunting and beautiful and not quite like anything else I’ve ever read.

In the chaotic years after Steve Rogers arrives back in 2023 as an old man, he helps rebuild the world, falls in love with his best friend, adopts a stray cat, and saves the entire timeline. Not necessarily in that order.

This is an epic continuation and exploration following the controversial (to say the least) ending of Endgame. It builds an utterly gripping and three-dimensional world in which Steve has to learn how to live, now that he’s no longer a supersoldier. Simply amazing!

Steve wakes up on the cold stone floor of the foyer. He scrambles up; there’s glass shards everywhere and they crunch under his gloved hands. People are staring, holding themselves back. They must have seen the fight, must have seen two of him.

His own voice rings in his head.“Bucky is alive!”

It’s all gone FUBAR in 2012.

This is the alternate!2012 fic I needed after Endgame, and it’s pretty damn close to perfect!

“Good morning, Soldier,” and Steve opened his eyes and said, automatically, “Ready to comply.”

Post-Endgame fic, in which Steve tries to save Bucky (of course he does) – but things don’t exactly go as planned. Gorgeous fic with gorgeous artwork!

“…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.”

This is a breathtaking AU, with so much detail and a stunning accompanying comic. I literally got chills reading this.
