cashew: Baby!Cap chasing after Bucky Bear (A-babies vs. X-babies // Starbuck)
If it brings you home by Kalibear
After six months of searching for Bucky, Steve asks for help from Tony, Dr Strange, and Reed Richards but the portal that was supposed to send him to a 'where' sends him to a 'when' instead.

Instead of finding the Winter Soldier, Steve finds 19-year-old Bucky. it. I do feel the ending kinda dragged on a bit, as is with fanfic - editing seems to run short all the time - but for the most part, a fun time-travel romp. Worth the read.

The Size of Perfection by phoenike

Summary: The serum enhances Steve’s physical attributes to peak condition. All of them. Unfortunately, ‘enhanced’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘optimal’ or ‘something that a fella wishes to show the girl of his dreams on their wedding night.’

Funny and touching, although I thought the epilogue could have been cut in editing. But the epilogue is at the very end and only a few paragraphs, so it didn't completely ruin the experience. Anyway, point is, it's pretty lighthearted and fluffy, exactly what I needed to counter all those "but Bucky and Steve are so aaaangsty" fics.

The Way Out Is The Way Down by Speranza

Yup, another Speranza rec. Yup, another good one. At least, I quite enjoyed it. :D

(Warning: adult themes. But it's a CA:CW fic, did you expect anything less?)

Bucky的早晨 by 多米诺小排骨
General premise of the story is Bucky has a different "scenario" every day that plays out during his recovery process. A bit of a crack fic on top of some fun bits. Mostly, the names are all in English, so you don't have to mentally translate them. Makes for much easier reading.

亲爱的,没必要大动干戈 by 椰子椰子掉下来;故园无声
Marriage counseling AU. Is a fun read, but will the names are all translated into Chinese, so will need to do some name juggling.

Scraps by Lena7142, Scappodaqui, stripyjamjar, tinzelda
Personally, I recommend checking out all the stuff by Scappodaqui (and his/her associates). This author's (these authors') writing is very, very well researched. There's a lot of historical accuracy and generally realistic portrayal of what a homosexual relationship would look like back in the 1940's, when being gay could get you killed, jailed, or blue carded out of the military. I love that the writer(s) doesn't (don't) bash you over the head with social justice buzz words, and instead just let the attitudes of the characters in the story speak for the environment. Very refreshing from all the hamfisted flagwaving that fics tend to become in this fandom. Oh, also, I shamefully did not read this writer until recently, because it had such low kudos count and the summary didn't pique my interest, which is a damn shame. A severely underrated fic.
Steve and Bucky make do with what they can during the war.

Pro tip: Definitely do not stop until you at least finish the third part of this fic. Things will make so much more sense once you see the hidden meaning behind the words.

Bucky Barnes Has His Shit Together (and Other Lies He Tells Himself) by betty days (sadrobots)
I really liked this one. Also more baking AU.
You'd think a guy who owns one of the most successful bakeries in Brooklyn, has a million-dollar smile and that antiquated good ol’ boy charm, blond hair and blue eyes and biceps for days, would know what’s what.

But don’t let that fool you: Steve Rogers is a mess.

cashew: Baby!Cap chasing after Bucky Bear (A-babies vs. X-babies // Starbuck)
There's been kind of a dearth of good Cap fic recently, but there's a couple of gems that are worth reading. The fics are all going to focus on stuff posted within 2015, with a couple from the later half of 2014 that I think are really worth reading. I'm going to split the fic recs into Chinese and English fic, since this is a targeted fic rec list.

Oh, and p.s., it's all going to be Steve/Bucky, with hints of other pairings. Because...well, I'm me. XD

English fic:

All fics are going to be linked to Ao3, as I find it easier to find good quality fic there, as opposed to or Tumblr. I'll further split the fic into angst and fluff categories.

Fluff )

Angst )

Chinese fic:

All the fics here are located at movieslash forum, a Chinese fic forum. So you're going to need to sign up for an account to actually read the fic. No need to post for points, so there's that?

Chinese fics )

There's more, but since it's in a forum, trying to re-find them is proving a bit difficult. Anyway, that should be plenty of reading to tide you over for a while.
cashew: close up picture of Minako's transformation pen (SailorMoon // pen is mightier)

You'll need an account to access the page, but is very easy to sign up. This is a part of a series of standalone Lawyer!AU fics.

General gist of fic: Bucky and Steve get drunk in Vegas, get married, now need to get a divorce so that Pierce can't use their marriage as an excuse to force his way back into their firm. Unfortunately, Pierce sued them for faking divorce. So the case is on. Thor is their lawyer, while Pierce hired Schmidt. Oh, and Natasha is the unfortunate judge who has to deal with this mess of a case. Sam and Clint are on the side making needless comments and complicating the whole thing. And Peggy totally gets called to the witness stand to testify.

Read it!

I Always Need to be Sure of You

Summary: Five times that Bucky Bear knew he was Steve's favorite toy.

Holy shit, this thing is so cute. OMG, my teeth are falling out from all the sweet adorableness of baby!Steve and his Bucky Bear. Guh.

Because I'm hoping to entice [personal profile] tanithryudo into this fandom. (And maybe [personal profile] ossian, too? Come join meeeeeeee. *points to previous review of Young Justice*)

'Cause Walking Gets Too Boring - Robin doesn't walk like normal people. Also restless. Batman is the only one who understands.

DeathDefying Only Actually Not Really - Robin's flips and shit scare the bejeezus out of The Team.

Linchpin - Robin is kidnapped. The Team is suitably freaked out. (Note: Personally, I found some of the circumstances a little too contrived in an attempt to drag out the kidnapping. But if you can ignore that, it's a decently fun read.)

Paternal Instinct - Robin, the boy hostage, trolls his captors. Because when your dad is Batman, you can do these things.

The Unofficial Nightmare Club - Season 2 fanfic. Baby!Team members go to Nightwing for comfort. Because, y'know, he's Nightwing.

Two Birds - (Warning: Unfinished, possibly on hiatus.) A Young Justice/Teen Titans crossover. Two Robins. What can possibly go wrong? (Hint: Everything.) (Note: I feel the Teen Titans team was vastly over powered in this particular crossover and I think there's a severe underestimation of what M'Gann can dish out and way, way over estimation of what Raven can accomplish. But other than that, the story keeps trucking along and is decently entertaining.)

Batsketball - Hand-eye coordination training in the Batfamily. Featuring Not-Dead-Yet!Jason and all the little robins. (I rarely enjoy Jason centric stories, but hell if I didn't feel bad for the kid in this one. Mostly because of how crappy it made poor Dick feel. ;_;)

Cautionary Tale - Moral of the story: do not fuck with Robin cloning. Just don't do it. Also Dick Grayson is seriously the nicest guy in the entire DC multiverse. Just sayin'.

And yes, I am aware that my fic recs bias completely towards Dick-centric stories. I can't help it, I love the guy.
