I have a wonderful Stucky support group on Twitter who rec fics to each other when times get tough and so I gotta shout out friend of the blog L. Scott for this amazing rec! It’s been ages since we’ve had a Stucky fic on the blog, and while the last story in this series is unfinished, there are over 100k words of finished fic (read the shorts, they’re hilarious!) that make this series one of my top Stucky picks, ever.
Yeah, I said it.
There is so much depth to this story and a number of important characters, yet it starts out incredibly simple and plausible. Barnes’ objective shifts on the helipad, but what does that do for his mental health? This story is sweet and funny, sad and scary honest. If you’re looking for a quick smut fix, this isn’t that story. There is very slow burn between Cap and Buck, mainly because the story stays fairly realistic and canon compliant. You will find your faves in character, doing the most awesome and bizarre things to help Bucky and Cap find some semblance of normalcy–set after CA: TWS.
