no heart to recall by KiaraSayre
He’s been in Steve Rogers’s company for less than twenty-four hours and he’s already losing sight of his mission.
counting backwards while the stars are falling by girlonfire
But tonight’s different, Bucky knows it before he’s even completely asleep, because in that half-aware space somewhere between dreaming and consciousness he feels his skin prickling, his chest clenching like he’s lost something and he doesn’t know what it is, never even had it, and as oblivion overtakes him, all Bucky sees is the same face he’s seen in his dreams for years.
Five times Steve kissed Bucky by paragon
(+ once, finally, it was the other way around)
Counting Backwards by honeypuffed
It’s not exactly friends, but it’s not exactly more than that either.
to hide the wolves of sleep by beardsley
SHIELD are the ones to create the Winter Soldier and, in 2013, deploy him to aid the Avengers. Some meetings are inevitable.
this city bleeds its aching heart by Renne
The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.
The Winter Soldier takes the shot and kills Captain America. Or at least, that’s how the story was meant to go.
It’s Not Home Without You by DaftPunk_DeLorean
When Steve shuffled down the hall in flannel pajama pants and a tank top, scrubbing his wet hair with a towel, he thought about a lot of things; his day, his search plans, how he wanted to spend the rainy evening. Mostly though, he just thought about Bucky.
What he didn’t think was that he would walk into the living room and see a pair of heavy, slate-blue eyes staring back at him.
A Place Called Home by Renne
New Years Eve. Suits. Party at Stark’s place. Honesty happens.
but the fires are coming by stitchingatthecircuitboard
He does not remember, except that is better than being made to forget, again, and again, and again.
He does not go to Brooklyn.
Future AU in which nobody tries out for X Factor but the boys end up finding one other eventually anyway. Louis is a jaded bastard who owns a cat named Duchess and teaches drama to teenagers, Harry is an idealistic aspiring photographer/part-time footy coach, Zayn teaches English lit and wears leather jackets, Liam saves people from burning buildings, and Niall is Niall.

Notes: Okay so I’ve seen people rec’ing this all over and I got around to starting it yesterday. IT’S SO PERFECT. It’s hilarious and just perfect. I plan on staying up all night and reading the 130k that was posted today asdfghjkl. It’s so quotable, like it almost has the quotable-ness of mean girls.
