    Summary

    He does not have a name.

    He has been called many things over the years; a weapon, a ghost, HYDRA’s Fist, the Soldier, and from what they have told him his work has shaped the century.

    But he does not have a name. His name, like so many other things, has been taken from him, stolen.

    Forgotten.

    Until the day it is not, and remembering, he breaks free, killing his handler and making his escape in a desperate bid for freedom.

    Frightened, lost and hurt, he seeks out the last person in the world he can trust, his baby sister, now an almost eighty-year-old widow, somehow knowing she is the only one who can help him.

    It is a difficult journey, one filled with pain, tears, and things that should not be possible. But also with recovery and redemption, rebirth and miracles, family and hope.

    This story is a love letter between Bucky and his sister Rebecca, the world, and eventually his childhood best friend, Steve Rogers, the boy he once loved. But ultimately, it is the love letter Bucky writes to himself, as he reclaims who he once was, discovers who he is now, builds a new life for himself and realizes he might, just might, be as strong, as beautiful, as precious as a pearl.

    Summary

    There are so many things that Bucky hasn’t told his (future) friends. So many people he’s hurt. So many that he’s killed. He doesn't want to fight anymore, but it seems like he doesn't have a choice.

    This is the story of what happened during the time he was brainwashed up until AFTER Captain America: the Winter Soldier. Includes: Bucky’s fall from the train, Hydra, the assassination of J. F. Kennedy, the Red Room, the murders of the Starks, Natasha’s birthday, ‘Who the hell is Bucky?,' Bucky’s trial, and Bucky Barnes’s recovery. It will switch to the future occasionally just so you know he's getting better. And also...

    To introduce the problem of Thanos.

    ~

    Thank you to everyone that has decided to join me on this incredibly long, bumpy ride. I'm sorry in advance (well, sort of sorry). Read with caution because we all know Bucky's story isn't the happiest.

    ~

    A story about the trials and tribulations of waking up in a different century, yet oddly enough, it's not the when that's the most frustrating part...

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes had a plan. No kids (at least for the time being), focus on his career and his relationship with the best person he had ever met. Being the best husband he could be was a challenge, but according to Steve, he did amazing without even trying.

    But that may not always be the case.

    Being in a relationship was always something that came easy to him. He never understood the belief that marriage caused strain. He and Steve got married, went on a roadtrip that they could barely even call a honeymoon, and then resumed every day life. Now they just had two rings in the mix, that they felt when they entwined their fingers.

    But a four year old kid that Bucky hadn't known existed? That the idea of had never been thought of? Whose mother abandoned him in an airport five years before, in a state he had never been to? That could definitely cause some problems.

    Summary

    If perchance the body of James ‘Buchanan’ Barnes of the 107th Infantry, had been found in the Alps in the years following 1945, perhaps a letter would have been found tucked into his breast pocket. Perhaps the letter would have been addressed to a ‘Steve Rogers’, of Brooklyn, USA. Perhaps it would talk of a friendship, a kinship, a brotherly bond and the sorrow of that loss, and the urge of a promise to live a life just as full without him. Or perhaps it would declare a great love, the greatest there ever was, a love so strong that could fracture the world if it was allowed to bloom too long.

    But we will never know, because the world does not work in perchances and perhaps.

    ~

    Instead, a new letter written some years later reads a little like this.

    Some fucking day in 1983

    Dear Stevie,

    I’m angry, I already said that one. I’m livid, I’m furious, agitated, irked, enraged, riled up, seething and peeving, incensed, hackles raised, hot under the collar and downright hopping mad. Why?

    Fuck you, that’s why.

    Summary

    Rollins can't have a relationship with the person he wants, so he's trying to move on with someone else. Maybe Rumlow doesn't take kindly to being the second-choice.

    Or, what Jack Rollins doesn't know might get him killed.

    Summary

    He definitely did not want company right now, even though 'a friend' was a thing he could have right now.

    It was Bucky's first day after the whole trial about his days as The 'feared' Winter Soldier from Hydra

    Summary

    James Buchanan Barnes has recently surfaced from his voluntary cryostasis; a necessity if his Hydra brainwashing is to be undone. While he heals, Bucky enjoys a peaceful existence on his own patch of heaven in the Wakandan plains. Too peaceful almost.

    At least Shuri thinks so when she starts meddling.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has a secret.

    He jerks it to the idea of biting his husband’s neck.

    This wouldn’t be a problem, except he’s married to Captain America.

    Another secret?

    Bucky Barnes would much rather be married to Steve Rogers instead.

    This is the story of how Bucky helps Steve put aside the mask of Captain America and actually get what Steve Rogers wants for once in his damn life.

    Yeah, he’s a good husband like that.

    Summary

    Steve continued to speak erratically. ‘Tony wants him dead and I couldn’t let him just kill my friend! Banner has promised that his software is now safe but Tony will only have him here if he sees you, Dr Isle. Hydra scrambled his mind so many times, if you can help him get any of his memories back…’

    Dr Maggie Isle was hand picked by Nicholas Fury to be the Head of Psychiatric Medicine at the Shield Institute because her loyalty is to her patients. And now, for better or worse, she is loyal to Bucky.

    Or

    Dr Maggie Isle doesn't look at Bucky with pity but with kindness. They strike up an unlikely friendship but soon the past rears its ugly head, entwining their fates and making the future look murky. Enemies to friends, friends to lovers.

    Summary

    HYDRA was weaponizing his helicarriers and Tony was pissed. He had already wiped out the Ten Rings. You would really think other terrorist groups would take note and not mess with his stuff; it was just self preservation at this point. Thank god Fury had had some sense to involve him, the very person that created the helicarriers, and could ground them before they even left the ground. The alternative, sending Captain America, the Black Widow, and a random member of the Air Force against the full force of Hydra, was not pleasant to consider.

    In a world where Tony Stark is involved in the first fight against HYDRA, he goes head to head with the Winter Soldier and is surprised to learn his identity. Tony tries to deescalate the fight and brings up Howard Stark’s friendship with Bucky Barnes. He is shocked by the revelation that the Winter Soldier killed him. The Soldier escapes the fight against Iron Man but can’t stop thinking about the encounter, especially because the man inside the suit, Tony Stark, has extensive surveillance out to find him. Wanting to learn more about the man pursuing him, the Soldier starts to surveil him back.

    Summary

    The day he returns from Afghanistan, Tony decides that it is imperative to learn as many languages as he possibly can. He hates how vulnerable he had felt, how he hadn’t had all the information. He hated having to rely on Yinsen to keep him alive.

    He hates even more that he failed to bring Yinsen home.

    Summary

    In the year since he broke free from HYDRA, Bucky Barnes has been trying to rediscover himself, searching for who he was in the words of history books and within the memories he is slowly recovering. While journeying through Hungary, he meets an old woman who promises to help him. He accepts, not realising that her form of help involves time travel.

    He gets sent back to 1944, into the body of his younger self. Bucky, with no clear idea of how to return to the future, tries his best to rediscover the Bucky that Steve, Peggy and the Howling Commandos know him to be, whilst also having to deal with a mission straight out of his worst fears.

    Summary

    “What the fuck was I supposed to do?!” Pulling on his hair, he starts pacing around the room. “That's always been my part to play! Following you, following Steve Rogers into fights, making sure he makes it; then Captain America's sidekick, remember? The B-player, making sure that player A shines. I was always meant to be in the shadows, so what, again, I ask, was I supposed to fucking do? Ask you to stay? God, how selfish would that be of a sidekick, hey? Keeping the hero from getting the girl?"

    Bucky's life took on a life of its own - the last thing he really remembers is standing in the field, asking where the fight was. Now, after the fight is over, after Steve's decision, after discovering time travel is possible, he needs to find a way to move forward. Or backwards. Either way, he is not ready.

    Summary

    Stucky fic set directly after the events of CA:CW, but just before Bucky was frozen again in Wakanda. Steve convinces Bucky to spend a few quiet days with him before being frozen again. Feels, fluff, and soft romance. :')
    fair warning, though: this is like 100% cliches, I'm just,, soft for them
