Thank you, Mods! I've had a total blast with my card this year. I just wish I had time to fill in all of it. But here are my last five, in under the wire (at least in Texas).Author: taste_is_sweetFandoms: Marvel Cinematic Universe (Captain America: The Winter Soldier & Iron Man)
Abandonment Issues; Captivity; Forced Soulbonding; Clones; Suicide AttemptTitle: A Precarious, Fragile ThingFandom:
Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers; Tony StarkWordcount:
NoneSummary:"I didn't know he did that," Tony said. He knew Bucky liked tucking himself so far under Steve's arm that it was like he was trying to climb into his armpit. But he'd always stayed upright, just kind of plastering himself against Steve's side. This blanket thing was new.
"Seventy years of skin hunger," Steve said. His voice was just as soft, but for a moment his eyes flickered hot with anger, bright as the candy-colored screen. "He was always tactile. Now, when things get…well, sometimes it helps. The contact."
And it looked…nice, the two of them together like that: Comfortable. Familiar. Safe. Tony knew what a precarious, fragile thing it was, to feel safe in the middle of the night.Author's Notes:
Part 7 of my You Make Me Feel Like I Am Home Again
Series.Title: As Good a Place as AnyFandom:
Bucky Barnes/Steve RogersWordcount:
NoneSummary:"It was a retreat," Steve goes on more calmly, then has to swallow against something a little too close to nausea lodged in his throat. "They put—they brought me there to help me get my head on straight. Their psychiatrists were sure it'd help me to get away from everyone. And, and they showed me how to set up video calls. If I wanted. It wasn't a prison."
"Video calls," Bucky says flatly. He stares at Steve so long that Steve has to force himself not to avert his gaze. Bucky's eyes are huge and horrified, and he pushes his fingers through his hair again, then leaves them linked on the back of his head. "Stevie," he says, and his voice cracks. "Stevie, don't you even know what they did to you?"Author's Notes:
Part 11 of my You Make Me Feel Like I Am Home Again
Series.Title: We Couldn't Get Closer than ThisFandom:
Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers; Natasha Romanov; Clint BartonWordcount:
NoneSummary:"I had a familiar, once." Steve wants to touch the cat so badly his fingers hurt with it. He doesn't, too afraid he'll feel nothing. He's felt nothing where half his soul used to be for a very long time.Title: Shapes Supposed to Be HeartsFandom:
Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers; Felicity Smoak/Oliver Queen; Felicity Smoak; Sam Wilson; Bucky BarnesWordcount:
Oliver Queen and James Buchanan Barnes have a lot in common.("He's not actually a veteran," Felicity said at last, then looked up, worried. "But what happened to him…he was a prisoner of war. He'd tell you that's not true, but, from what little he's told me…yeah." She rubbed her nose, then re-clasped her hands and lowered her eyes. "And he was tortured," she went on softly. "For a long time. They trained him to fight. Made him…made him do things." She bit her lip. "Awful, terrible things that no one should do to anybody. But he did. And it…it changes you. When you have to do that."
Sam cleared his throat. "Yes it does." His voice creaked anyway, but it was a little hard to speak normally when his heart was suddenly going like he'd been trying to lap Steve Rogers. "This friend of yours," he went on, trying not to sound eager. "What's his name?")Author's Notes:
Part 3 of my You Make Me Feel Like I Am Home Again
