Bucky x Steve || (can’t) give it up
Wow, this is amazing. Such talent.
In less than a week I will be stuck on a 6hr flight, and lot’s of travel time & waiting around on both ends. Which means I have a need to fanfiction. Lots and lots of fanfic. So if people would like to send me a rec - I will post the final reading list prior to heading out of everyone’s rec’s.
Any suggestions for some good fics to help pass the time (long preferred but short would also be fine, any genre and any rating)?
"We were cursed by one of our enemies, destined to fall in love with each other only to watch each other die lifetime after lifetime." (above gifs quotes from Smallville and The Fountain)
There is no afterlife for them. They die. Then reborn, only to lose the memories of their previous life and have the urge to find someone-someone important. They would have dreams. They wouldn’t understand any of them but the feeling of loss, until they find each other.
Only to lose each other again to Death and everything starts over.
Or until 1940s, until Bucky fell, until Steve flew the plane into the ocean, until he woke up in the same life and Bucky didn’t die but live. (Description based on falconbigbutt’s post)
Bonus: Steve Dying

keep you close ♥ itsmylifekay
“Any particular reason you’re wearing my clothes?” Bucky asked, trying for casual but knowing Steve could always see right through his easy smirks and wide eyes. // “Forgot to do wash the other day. Figured you wouldn’t mind,” His brow furrowed down the middle and he shifted under Bucky’s hand as if to stand. “I can change if you want.” // “No.” Bucky said quickly. He pushed Steve back into the couch with a hand on his shoulder. “No, you figured right. I don’t mind. Not one bit.” // Or: Steve forgets to do laundry one day, and it turns out pretty good for both of them.

Critical Feline Mass ♥ Kryptaria, rayvanfox
Adjusting to civilian life is hard for any military veteran — especially for one ex-sniper with a cybernetic arm, a classic Harley, and friends who keep trying to ‘help.’ When Sam Wilson at the VA sends Sergeant Barnes to rent a room from the hottest guy in the DC area, Bucky thinks maybe civilian life is worth it after all. And then he finds out Captain Rogers is everything Bucky’s not: a real hero, a Medal of Honor recipient, and an all-around nice guy. Bucky doesn’t have a chance in hell with him. // Sam was a huge help to Steve Rogers when he left the military. In the spirit of ‘pay it forward,’ Steve decides to rent out his basement room to a vet in need. But when Sergeant Barnes shows up on his doorstep, he knows he’s in for a world of trouble. Barnes is exactly what Steve never knew he wanted, from his bedroom eyes to his wicked innuendos. And he’s Steve’s tenant. // A love story in twelve chapters, including two Harley-Davidsons, a guardian angel, multiple snipers, the only woman who can scare them into behaving themselves, spontaneous kittens, and one attacking sheep.

all exits look the same ♥ SHCombatalade
“A… a ghost.” He repeats it, more to himself, in disbelief – all this lead up, all this mystery, the man in his bathroom and the five months of not knowing and questioning his sanity every time he opened his eyes, all of that for someone to spell out, literally spell out, what he already knew? It’s not that he’s disappointed, not really, it’s just that he was expecting a little bit more of a climactic revelation. A little less spelling, too, but what can you expect from a guy employed by an equally acronymed organization?

Make My Heart Beat Double Time ♥ OnlySecondsAway
When Bucky Barnes meets his new roommate, he can’t quite figure out what the guy’s problem is. Bucky never did anything wrong, so why does he hate him so much? Then again, Bucky never did read people well. // But hey, at least he doesn’t care when Bucky gets high.

You and Your Memory ♥ tigrrmilk
Steve broke up with Bucky the summer that he turned 19. // It wasn’t the best decision he ever made. // It’s almost ten years later, and Bucky’s back, but Steve doesn’t know what to do about that. He also doesn’t know what to do about the fact that somebody is trying to destroy the building that he lives and works in, and all of the people in it. // But somebody’s got to do something.
As a rule I don’t rec WIP’s - but this one is just so damn good. It might also help that I just read all the Hawkeye comics and this takes place in Clint’s building and it’s just PERFECT! . currently 7k . rated teen
