socially-awkward-hobbit requested “Any long/chaptered stucky fics” These are my personal favourites, things I have bookmarked and some I have yet to read. Ranges from canon to au, heed warnings on some fics!
Blue And White And Read All Over: Mild-mannered reporter by day, superhero by… other parts of the day.
The one where Captain America has a day job, Bucky spends most of his time with superheroes and supervillains, and nothing is quite as normal as it seems. (WIP)
Why Then Oh Why Can’t I? (or, 5 Times Steve Rogers Felt Awkward Talking About Sex, And One Time He Stopped Talking Altogether):“You really never did grow up all the way, did you, Steve? Of course it changes things. But hey.” He lifts his glass, and Steve reluctantly lets go to join in the toast. “Who says change has to be bad?”
The Long Days Ahead Of Me: Ever since Steve Rogers was defrosted he has been protective of his shield; even going so far as to beat anyone who takes it from him. He’s not mentally stable and only Clint Barton, the man with the eyes of a hawk, sees that Steve isn’t as well as what he’s been letting on.
After a few relapses, Steve is doing better with therapy and then the Winter Soldier makes his move. But there is something haunting about those familiar eyes.
Gravitation: "He couldn’t remember when he first started feeling the pull. Perhaps it was too long ago, or perhaps it had been gradual, something that crept up on him. But by the time he was sixteen, Bucky knew that the axis of his world spun around Steve Rogers in the worst possible way."
Inspired by finding out that in the prequel comics for Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve and Bucky are in art class when the news breaks about Pearl Harbor.
Wanderings: With their names at the top of SHIELD’s Most Wanted lists, Steve takes Bucky - the Winter Soldier - and runs to save him.
Bucky isn’t sure why he goes with Steve, especially after everything he’s done, or why Steve is giving him a second chance. He only knows that he owes it to Steve to try.
Don’t Ask: Captain America and Bucky Barnes were like brothers. Everyone knew that.
Shrieking Guns And Out Of Tune: Steve’s life is slowly getting better after the war. He gets better, he has friends, he drinks, he bakes.
And then Bucky returns.
Devil’s Gonna Follow Me (Wherever I Go): The man who used to be Bucky Barnes lined up his shot. His finger twitched, only once, very precisely.
Help me, the bullet sang.
Ninety-eight floors below him, the bullet glanced off a vibranium shield with a musical ping.
And Steve Rogers looked up.
Home Is Where You Are: "You look at him like he’s home, and you’re trying like hell to figure out how to get back to it."
Fallen Angels In The Night: In which Steve Rogers is blissfully happy with Peggy Carter, until his old flame waltzes into town like nothing ever happened. Emotions run rife, but luckily Peggy is the Queen of fixing things. Now if only she can stop staring at said old flame, too.
Long Range Reconnaissance:"I know you’re still you, Rogers," Bucky said. "You’re just…" he trailed off, studying Steve closely.
"Just what?" Steve asked, flushing.
It was Bucky’s turn to shrug. “Just more, I guess.” (Series)
The Long Way Home: James Barnes takes the long way home.
The Man On The Bridge: Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door in the middle of the night might be a bit out of character, but it’s not completely out of the realm of possibility. Stranger things have happened.
Steve Rogers turning up at Tony’s door with an amnesiac assassin - who may or may not have some of Tony’s personally designed hardware attached where his arm should be - well that’s just far too interesting to turn away, even if Tony is trying to avoid all things S.H.I.E.L.D these days. (WIP)
Clear Through: "What are you expecting here? The guy’s been through this massive thing and you, what, want to talk about the time the two of you made out?"
Make Way For Ducklings: Steve leads a Tactical Defence training course a few months after the events of the Avengers movie, and gains himself some SHIELD-issue ducklings. A series of interconnected stories set in the same universe.
Mighty like Love, Mighty like Sorrow: After freeing himself from the Russians’ mind control, Bucky is left at loose ends, drifting through the decades. Still, he’s in no hurry to take up Nick Fury’s offer to once again fight the good fight — especially not when Fury has the nerve to put some impostor in his best friend’s old suit and send him out to fight against Chitauri.
The Sirens And The Thunder: “Hide that,” he says, forcing the words out past every instinct. “As well as you can, all right? Before morning.”
Steve stares at him blankly, like he needs a moment to work this out, then swallows once, sharply. “What’s your name?” he asks at last—asks as he stands there with the pelt in his hands.
And oh, he thinks suddenly, what is his name? He can’t speak it, not with this mouth, he can’t sing it into the air like he can in the ocean. He just shakes his head; like his nakedness, it’s something he can’t explain. Steve nods, just nods, his eye swelling shut and blood drying on his shirt collar, and says “we’ll figure it out.”
No Heart To Recall: He’s been in Steve Rogers’s company for less than twenty-four hours and he’s already losing sight of his mission.
Seasons: People change like the season, and Steve is the summer. He always thought that Bucky was the spring, all fresh-stepped, rejuvenated energy, full of step and stride. He isn’t sure what Bucky is now, isn’t sure he’s anything. He isn’t sure what he is either, a man out of time plagued by the ghosts of his past.
The Winter Soldier doesn’t remember who he is, doesn’t know what he’s doing, but there’s a name on his lips and images of lazy Brooklyn days cycling through his mind as he tries to figure out just who James Buchanan Barnes is. (WIP)
180 Days And Counting: Bucky Barnes needed out of his current school. Luckily, his old college buddy, Natasha Romanoff, knew of an open position at her elementary school. This is the story of Bucky adjusting to his new workplace, the fantastic and crazy teachers who also work there, and how difficult it is not to crush on the art teacher across the hall. (WIP)
Cards To Your Heart: The one where Bucky is an Iraq war vet working at a coffee shop and Steve is the starving art student he falls in love with.
In From The Cold: "We’ve had eyes out for this operative for years now. I don’t think most of us believed he actually existed, but we’ve finally got proof." (Series)
The Ghost And The Machine:There is an empty grave at Arlington with Steve’s name on it. It’s been there for almost seventy years. Bucky would do anything, give anything, give back every second of his borrowed time, to make things right. It should be his name on that grave; it should have been him.
Timestamp: Bucky knows what Steve wants when he comes in like that, hair wet, robe slipping off his shoulder. (Series)
Голубка [My Dove]: For some reason Steve keeps running into the familiar face of the Winter Soldier. Each new time heralds a mission gone wrong, and yet, Steve can’t help but be baffled. Is the Soldier his enemy? Or friend? (WIP)
To Hide The Wolves Of Sleep: SHIELD are the ones to create the Winter Soldier and, in 2013, deploy him to aid the Avengers. Some meetings are inevitable.
This Might Just Work: Bucky Barnes is unwillingly dragged along when Nick Fury goes to talk to Tony Stark about the Avenger Initiative, as a little demonstration of the bigger universe Tony’s just joined. (OT3 Steve/Bucky/Tony)
The One You Love: Looking after Steve and going to Dodgers games together: the more things change, the more they stay the same. Bucky has always loved Steve, but when is he going to do something about it?
The Supersoldier’s Amnesiac Groom: Steve Rogers has always known that the supersoldier serum was a gift, and he’s never been afraid to do what’s right.
When Uncle Sam asks him to unite the two sides of the Cold War by taking part in a symbolic union with a fabled Russian assassin, Captain America doesn’t hesitate to do his duty.
Little does he know how thoroughly his world is going to be turned upside down.
Like A Map With No Ocean: Steve Rogers finds what he has been missing all along.
Like A Plane Crash That Never Hits The Ground: Bucky finds himself cock blocked by Steve Rogers. Which is unfortunate, since it’s Steve’s pants he’s trying to get into.
We Did Not Make Ourselves: It is like steel, the determination inside of you that tells you you will achieve this, that you will find him. Nothing will stop you. You are two sides of the same coin, you and he: he cannot escape you forever. Bucky runs. Steve follows.
I’m Coming Home (But I Ain’t Coming Home For You):The Winter Soldier takes the shot and kills Captain America. Or at least, that’s how the story was meant to go.
Life Is In The Details: No, he doesn’t feel particularly grateful for being rescued by Steve. Bucky isn’t a damsel in distress, thank you very much.
Getting kidnapped by Thor, and taken to Asgard, didn’t make Bucky happy either. Getting fussed over by them, and treated like a long-lost family member, was, however, beyond alarming.
Has everyone gone insane?
Where The Circle Ends: In which the world has gone to hell in a zombie apocalypse handbasket and, in the middle of it all, Steve finds the one person he never thought he’d see again.
Pianissimo: Steve and Bucky from the 30s to 1945. Inspired by an Avengerkink prompt about Steve and Bucky hiding their relationship.
