    Summary

    Steve Rogers and T.J. Hammond have been together for over a year. The world sees it as Captain America being in love with the drug addict son of an ex-President (never mind that T.J. has been clean for 13 months and counting). The way the two of them see it, Steve Rogers is in love with T.J. Hammond, and it's as simple as that.
    But nothing is ever simple, and as Steve struggles to come to terms with his PTSD and T.J. is determined to see him through, Elaine Barrish begins her presidential campaign, bringing T.J.'s demons back to the surface. And all hell breaks loose.

    Summary

    Things Steve knows about his boyfriend Bucky: How he looks with his face relaxed in sleep. That he can perfectly flip pancakes. The way he’s open about things Steve is still adapting to, like therapy and depression and sex toys and being a millennial. The way he laughs with his mouth wide open and his eyes squinted, and the cheerful way he cheats at cards and loses at laser tag.

    The way he seduces Steve with a knowing glint in his eye. The way Steve responds to it, stronger each time, taken by his beauty and competence and snark and compassion (or the compassionate way he boots Steve in the ass when he needs a push).

    Things Steve doesn’t know about his boyfriend Bucky: That he’s an undercover operative gathering intel on Hydra, SHIELD, and which Steve is affiliated with.

    Summary

    It was Bucky, standing in a pool of his own blood, one shoulder propped against the doorframe as if he could barely stand, face deathly pale. A little girl covered in dirt and blood clutched his right arm, leaves caught in her mane of springy black curls. A tiny baby was carefully cradled in his left, black streaks of grime standing out against its china-pale skin

    “I need your help.”

    Summary

    In the time before the ocean's rise, before men left their hiding places and stretched out across the earth, taming rivers and forests and all in their path, there lived a half-orc boy named Steve. All his childhood, Steve was told by the people of his town that he was born of a forced union between his orc father and his human mother. But Steve knew the truth. He remembered late night visits and secret weekends away together, where his father would play pat-pat with him and dance with his mother in front of the fire. Steve knew the truth: he had been born of love.

    Cast out of his human village, Steve will seek out his father only to find that love can be true but tainted as a mysterious warrior named Bucky exposes the terrible secret of the orcling army. This is the story of how Steve found his way in the world and discovered the cost of love and the loneliness of sacrifice.

    Summary

    When Bucky gets drafted, Steve thinks that war is probably the worst thing men can visit on one another. But war or not, life in Brooklyn must go on, so he takes Bucky’s old job working in a medical clinic for the eccentric Dr. West. It isn’t long after that Steve is robbed of his life and then his humanity. What he’s left with feels less and less like who and what he had been and hoped to be. But through pain, loss, madness, and the bloody tang of war Steve learns that the things that make life worth living can never be taken from him.

    Summary

    There’s a legend in Mansewood, nearly as old as the town itself, about a pack of werewolves that once lived in the forest. They say only one survives; a monstrous and snarling beast with fur like a blizzard and fangs the size of daggers. They say it guards the lands and all creatures in it, and no hunter has faced it and lived to tell the tale.

    Steve doesn’t care about any of that. He only wants to know if it prefers T-Bone or ribeye, and would it please stop tracking dirt through his house? He just mopped the floor.

    Summary

    "Steve was used to weird things. He was used to mundane things too. What he wasn’t used to, however, was waking up at the crack of dawn to find an unconscious man in his backyard, clearly the reason behind the alarms being triggered."

    Life isn't particularly exciting for an expelled Summer Knight in the human world, years after his mortal love died of old age. So he's a little surprised when his old world comes knocking on his door in the form of a wounded, masked and voiceless fey.

    Turns out, the new visitor has a past, too, and when it catches up with them, the Summer Knight's life is going to get interesting again.

    Unfortunately, among the Sidhe, interesting almost always means dangerous. To them, and to those who they want to protect as well.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a homeless, recovering addict and veteran; he's accepted to a VA homeless shelter pilot program meant to help vets get back on their feet. He has his work cut out for him: he needs to find a job, save money, and find housing, but he's getting sidetracked by his attraction to Steve Rogers, one of the therapists in the program. He's kind, smart, funny, and clearly, in a relationship. But Bucky can't help the feeling that Steve is interested in him too.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has been many things. He has made himself and remade himself, been shaped and shattered and born again, and he’s done with it. James Buchanan has been alive for ninety years, and he’s ready to just be Bucky for the first time in over sixty.
    But when Bucky’s attempts to get at the root of his reprogramming result in a tenuous reversion to his early-HYDRA psychology, Steve will have to find a way to help Bucky regain his memories of Bucky-before. Following a trail of letters Bucky has left, as well as the path of one probably-kidnapped not quite intern of Tony’s, Steve, Natasha, and Tony Stark have to find Bucky and Peter before Bucky does something he’ll regret- or loses himself entirely.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is a caster with one very big problem.

    He's accidentally turned himself into a puppy.

    When trying to cross the scary, busy street to get to Wanda Maximoff's Shoppe of Witchcraft to reverse this spell and get himself back to normal, Steve's picked up by someone trying to do a good deed and rescue a few pounds of pathetic puppy. Instead of getting to Wanda's place, Steve goes home with Bucky Barnes--his adorably shy rescuer.

    Unfortunately, Bucky doesn't come off as terribly talented with magic and Steve has a feeling he might have to go to extremes to get someone to notice that he's not a normal puppy. Then again, maybe Steve's not the only one around here who's not what he seems.

    Summary

    “Steve, Christ, it’s just a small thing, okay? You don’t need to worry about me.”

    “What if you end up back in prison?”

    “I’m not gonna—”

    “Well, how do you know that? Just tell me, or I’m gonna think you’re in with the fucking mafia or something.”

    “Jesus, it’s not the mafia.”

    “Gang. Drug cartel.”

    “Oh, lay off! I’m fine, Steve, I’m not in a gang and I’m not going to end up in prison again. Please just calm down.”

    “How do you know?”

    Bucky exhales violently. His voice comes strained and halting through the phone. “Because—because I’m working for the guy who put me there last time.”

    Summary

    When Steve Rogers, 24, became a male escort, there was no room for emotions. He had a full appointment book and no time for that. He had it all planned out. There was definitely no time to get attached to an older, very successful, very gorgeous man who paid for his services. Absolutely no time.

    But Steve can’t turn down the money that’s currently rolling in, along with the gifts and the opportunity to live in the lap of luxury. How on earth is he supposed to say no? Especially once he starts falling for the man.

    James Barnes, 38, successful resort designer and CEO for Winter Luxury Resorts, stumbled upon Steve Rogers, Escort in a dark, high end bar in midtown Manhattan. He was cocky, young and beautiful and offered James exactly what he was looking for—the chance to be with a man who knew the ropes and offered no opportunity to get attached.

    Until of course, he gets attached. And suddenly, what was a contractual affair turns into much more. All thanks to a phrase Steve had used to pick him up that night in that dimly lit bar, a phrase that had turned Bucky’s world on its side, no matter how much Steve had just been being cheeky….

    “Sugar Daddy wanted.."

    Summary

    It’s taken Bucky a miserable, lonely year to re-learn how to behave like a human. Escaping HYDRA took its toll on him, but when he sees that floating city on television screen, he knows his days in hiding are numbered. Finding Steve is the easy part: Steve has always been Bucky’s true north, the compass guiding him home. Once he finds him, though, he realizes just how much he still has to overcome. The Asset remains, tucked away, lurking beneath the recesses of Bucky’s mind throughout every breakfast, joke, and long overdue moment.

    HYDRA always finds a way to tear James Buchanan Barnes apart sooner or later. The only question is, will the version of himself that Bucky has spent the last years building be enough to protect him?

    Summary

    Natasha stops by on a Tuesday, early enough in the morning that it would have been late by Steve’s old standards. Now, though, it takes him nearly three minutes just to limp to the door, yawning, and when he opens it he has to lean heavily on the doorframe.

    “Hi,” Natasha says, over the beginnings of birdsong. She’s not alone. “Can we come in?”

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes grew up thinking he could do anything, and is coming to terms with the fact that his parents might have oversold the idea of being an adult. He's an average 30-something Brooklynite with an average job, an average life, and a (smaller than) average apartment. So, he compares his life to the colorful Instagram pictures his friends post while longing for the excitement and brightness of their online presences.

    Steve Rogers has his dream job as a master stylist at the Red Room Salon, along with his dream apartment, and almost his dream life. Except, he's terrified of getting too close to people after his last real relationship left him self-conscious of being too hard in both personality and body type. While most of the emotional wounds have healed, their scars still linger.

    What happens when Steve and Bucky meet one night over an accidental gesticulation gone wild alongside a smack in the face?

    (Or: the meet-ugly with soft!Bucky; unicorn!haired Steve; good bros Sharon, Nat, and Bobbi; human disaster Clint Barton; everyday hero Sam; plus a side of Spideypool. There's smut, feels, and a story that's a bit more autobiographical than the author intended.)

    Summary

    A long time ago, in the kingdom of Leoman, two boys named Steve and Bucky lived under the watchful eye of Steve's mother, Sarah. Raised to be fair and kind, brave and true, the two were family in all but blood. Yet their idyllic existence was to be short-lived, and when tragedy struck, the boys were torn apart. One was taken into the home of a strange man with stranger children, while the other was forced to bear the weight of a crown he did not ask for.

    As the years went on, Steve Rogers forgot the boy he'd known so well. He grew into a fine young man; fair and kind, brave and true. So, when he met a stranger in the woods - someone who needed his help - what other choice did he have?

    Summary

    For better or for worse (usually worse), Steve Rogers has been the most famous guy in the room for a while. And though newsreels have given way to YouTube, people's reactions haven't changed much in seventy-some years. Steve's become an expert at keeping his head down and getting on with his life.

    A head-on collision on a busy street sends books flying and sweeps Steve off his feet. The point of impact has a name: James. A charming mess of long hair, thick glasses, and a crooked, not-quite-smile. If he recognizes Steve, he chooses not to comment, placing him firmly in Steve's good graces.

    As far as Steve can tell, they might be Bogie and Bacall all over again, save for the group of idiots with selfie sticks who surround them. But for once, the request isn't for Steve.

    Which begs the question: if James is James, then who the hell is Bucky?

    Summary

    “What do you do?”

    Shiro took a huge bite of rice right as Keith asked the question, giving himself a moment to come up with an answer.

    “Accounting,” he lied when he’d finally swallowed.

    If by ‘accounting’ he meant ‘holding criminals and villains accountable for their actions, usually with his fists,’ then yeah, sure, he was an ‘accountant.’
    --
    In which Shiro is bad at lying but good at half-truths; convinced he can’t have a relationship but falling in love anyway; and intending to build a team but ending up with a family.

    Or, the superhero secret identity neighbors au no one asked for.
