[MCU Fic Rec]: "Longing" by Face_of_Poe

Fanfic: Longing
Author: Face_of_Poe
FANDOM: MCU, Captain America, TFATWS
PAIRING: Sam/Bucky
GENRES: M/M, Light Angst, Domesticity, Recovery
WARNINGS: *minor references to HYDRA abuse (implied sexual assault/rape/non-con)*
CONTAINS: *Bucky’s file, depression, PTSD, memes*
RATING: Teen And Up Audiences
TIME FRAME: post-TFATWS season 1
WORDS: approx 5192
SUMMARY (given by the author): “What’d he do now?”

“Hm?” Sam glances over, realizes he’s fumbled his station in the line, and recovers by grabbing for the pretzel bag.

“You got that worrying about Bucky Barnes look on your face.”

“Maybe I’m worrying about Captain America business.”

She straight up laughs right in his face. “Like I said,” and wow, okay.
NOTES: Sam's POV

Excerpt: Read )

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Awww, what a beautiful, profound little recovery story this is. It takes place at the end of TFATWS and is told from Sam’s POV. We get to see a little glimpse of his friendship with Bucky. They are texting and staying in contact when Bucky is in New York. But every now and then Bucky drops off the radar for one or two days. Sam doesn’t get a clearer picture of why that is until one day when he mentions he’s read Bucky’s HYDRA file.

The characterizations and the dialogs are superb. The author is so deft at describing interactions between the characters. It pulls you right in and let’s you hang on every line. I loved the tone and the way this little story unfolds. It’s a perfect mix of sad and hopeful and warm.

[MCU Fic Rec]: "Mission To Monte Carlo" by Yavannie

Fanfic: Mission To Monte Carlo
Author: Yavannie
FANDOM: MCU, Captain America, TFATWS
PAIRING: Sam/Bucky
GENRES: M/M, Missions, Undercover Missions, Humor, Fluff and Humor, Espionage
WARNINGS: *Graphic Depictions of Violence*
CONTAINS: *men in suits, tie grabbing/tie fixing, faking sex noises, competence kink, kissing, necking, protective Bucky Barnes*
RATING: Teen And Up Audiences
TIME FRAME: post-TFATWS season 1
WORDS: approx 9292
SUMMARY (given by the author): Sam allows himself a second to let out a slow breath, willing himself to calm down. It’s not as if he hasn’t noticed it happening. The way that somewhere along the line, their bickering turned into banter - the way that these days, they sometimes toe the line where it might not even be just banter anymore. Bucky is no idiot (actually, scratch that, he’s most definitely an idiot, but not that kind of idiot), and Sam can’t help but think that he must have noticed too, can’t help but think that some of the things Bucky does are...deliberate. As deliberate as some of the things Sam does.

Does he hope they’re both being deliberate? Definitely. Is this undercover-with-no-cover operation the right time to try to figure it out? Absolutely not.

“Sir?” says the driver, meeting his eyes in the rearview mirror. “There are other cars waiting.”

“Yeah, sorry,” says Sam, rolling his neck and steeling himself. “Come on, Wilson,” he says under his breath. “You can be a little bit of a spy.”
NOTES: Sam's POV

Excerpt: Read )

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Mmmh, I really wish for this story to be an episode in season 2 of TFATWS. Please, TPTB, can it be an episode! It’s truly fantastic, sexy and so damn hilarious. When I was not fanning myself incessantly (because hello tags? Sam and Bucky undercover in suits, tie grabbing/tie fixing, competence kink, protective Bucky, necking), I was laughing my ass off (I tell you, the little fake sex noise orchestra has you in stitches!). This story comes with great characterizations and awesome chemistry between our boys (but also with Sharon). The writing-style is wonderful. Everything just flows right. There’s a spritz of a lot of things I enjoy (points to tags). This is a highly entertaining read. A real treat for one lovely evening.

[MCU Fic Rec]: "Good Vibrations" by burnthatbridge

Fanfic: Good Vibrations
Author: burnthatbridge
FANDOM: MCU, Captain America, TFATWS
PAIRING: Sam/Bucky
GENRES: M/M, First Time, PWP, Light Humor
WARNINGS: *none*
CONTAINS: *Vibrators, Accidental Voyeurism, Hand Job, Kissing, Masturbation, Anal Sex*
RATING: Explicit
TIME FRAME: post-TFATWS season 1
WORDS: approx 7416
SUMMARY (given by the author): If Bucky not texting Sam was where the problem started, this is where the problem becomes apparent and Bucky realizes the consequences of his actions — or non-action, as it is.

There’s no one sound that clues Bucky into what is occurring just through the wall from him, but taken together they are unmistakable.

It’s the snick of a bottle cap, the squeeze of a thick liquid coming out. The rustle of the blankets as Sam shifts. His breathing going deep and purposefully measured, and the rate of his heartbeat — which Bucky can only just make out, might not manage to at all if it was anyone other than Sam, who he’s so attuned to — increasing.


Bucky fails to let Sam know his therapy appointment has been cancelled. Sam thinks he's home alone.
NOTES: Bucky's POV

Excerpt: Read )

WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Smoking hot! Seriously, better have a pair of fresh panties at the ready. You will need them. :D The author is incredibly good with getting body language and reactions across. The sexual tension and arousal are dripping off the screen. This is one of the best written smut I’ve come across. The setup is nice, with a little insight of domestic Sam and Bucky sharing an apartment. One day, Bucky accidentally listens in on Sam pleasuring himself with a vibrator… I won’t tell you more here. It would spoil the fun. Go read this delicious gem!

WARNINGS: *none*

RATING: General Audience
TIME FRAME: TFATWS season 1, takes the club scene from the trailer, written before the show aired therefore canon divergent
WORDS: approx 1447
SUMMARY (given by the author): The insurgents are looking right in their direction, murmuring something amongst themselves, and for a blood curdling moment, Sam thinks that’s it: game over, mission ruined. Bucky is holding a few steady fingers on the underside of his glove, the metal peeking out from beneath the fabric. As soon as the insurgents start to shuffle forward, Bucky speaks again; louder, with clear annoyance in his tone:

“They’re coming right at us.”

That’s precisely the moment an idea pops into Sam’s head.
It might be nuts, and it violates the hell out of workplace professionalism, but it’s all he can think of.

A bemused smile blooms on Barnes’ face as he eyes Logan’s hands. “That’s Falsworth’s wallet.”
