Anonymous asked: can you rec some steve/sam fics pls. thank you in advance!
BTW all of these recs are explicit. I love smut and I’m not sorry! Also, these are in no particular order - well, except for the first one.
There are SO MANY popping up right now in Cap 2/MCU canon but my ultimate Sam/Steve fic is in comicsverse.
Some Kind of Pain by bactaqueen
This story is set in comics canon after another loss of Bucky (a very convenient source of Captain America man-pain) and Sam does what he can to be there for Steve. I love this fic because it starts off with a lot of macho dude-bro kinda interactions and slowly Steve falls apart, knowing that Sam can hold him together - not put him back together, but hold him together. Dude is a messy bag of feels and Sam picks up on this quickly and springs into action. With his penis.
The sex in this story is my favorite. I’ve got a thing for crying!sex and bottom!Steve, and you get both in spades here. READ IT, it will leave you horny and sobbing. Not even kidding when I say that this story is in the top 5 of anything I’ve ever read for the Marvel fandom. Bacta, you killed it. You killed me.
Growing Stronger, Warm, and Wilder by gloss
Another fic set in comics canon, and even better it’s set in the 1970s. Something about that makes it even hotter. It’s sort of a PWP blowjob fic but not really - It’s Sam’s POV and Steve is his enthusiastic and happy lover, and Sam’s inner monologue is so pained and doubtful towards the man that clearly loves him. Steve is happy and joyful in this fic, so glad and eager to perform for his man, and I just love that. I’m a big sap and I love stories about people who just can’t get enough of each other.
Bachelors by squirrelfish
This is a recent story in MCU canon and while it lacks some of the emotional punch of the other two, the intimacy between Sam and Steve is just so plain, it’s so there so there’s no need to get all mushy, I suppose. Once again, hot sex and enthusiastic Steve who can’t help but adore Sam.
Between Our Bodies There’s A Battlefield by thingswithwings
Another new MCU fic, and this is probably my favorite of the new stuff that you can find on AO3. Comfort sex featuring submissive power bottom Steve, and that is truly my favorite way to see that man. Big dudes that turn into little kittens in bed are like the best! Sam is wonderful and warm and supportive and willing to go outside of himself and try what Steve asks of him in order to help his friend. There’s a lot of chatting at the end of the story that serves to clarify everyone’s intentions, and when I first read the story I deemed all of that “too wordy,” but now I think it was a great move on the author’s part because it gave them the opportunity to develop the characters more, to flesh them out beyond the sex.
Baby, We’re Already Saved by lanyon
This is the least smutty fic that I rec (though sexin’ does happen), and I LOVE LOVE LOVE the way this author decided to use Tony in this fic! Just love it! The writer created some brilliant fanon around Tony and Sam having met in the past, and when I read it for the first time it was just soul-crushing. Like, I want it to become MCU canon, that’s how awesome it was and how moved I felt. Beyond that, Steve and Sam have many a heart-to-heart in gorgeous places around the world. I like it when a writer focuses on a non-canon setting and makes it come to life. Lanyon is great at descriptive prose.
Reblogging some great Sam/Steve recs!
(On a separate note, because I am too lazy to keep tagging with every possible pairing name, I for one am going all-in for “#on your left" until fandom firmly decides otherwise because both #freebird and #american airlines are sadly full of unrelated stuff. *pimps pairing name*)
omg what if JVJ had left before fantine had died to go get cosette and he bargained her away from the thenardiers and just before he left he saw eponine and figured he didn’t want any kids to stay with the thenardiers so he asked to bargain for eponine and then he saw azelma and he got her and then he saw gavroche and he was just like “SHIT” and he took them all and then he got back to Fantine and she was like “oh yay you got cosette WHO ARE ALL THESE OTHER KIDS?!” and he was like “they’re so cute it was like a buy one get three sale” and then him and fantine raised all four of them and no one died this is the best story ever.
I had the privilege of donning Captain America’s costume. I’m pleased to say it fit like a glove. (laughs)
Chris Evans - I take my hat off to him. He was so game. I put his costume on and I did a crude impression of Captain America and then later, he watched me do it. And so that performance that you see, is Chris Evans doing an impression of me doing an impression of him.- Tom Hiddleston, Thor: The Dark World Commentary
"He’s good with the ladies and a little bit of a dick and very lucky."—James Gunn, on Chris Pratt's Star-Lord
In Britain, make-up might have been hard to find, but it was worn with pride and became a symbol of the will to win. ‘Put your best face forward,’ encouraged a 1942 Yadley advertisement in Churchillian tones. ‘War, Woman and Lipstick' ran a celebrated Tangee campaign. Bright red was the favourite wartime colour for lips and nails and lipstick names were often patriotic: Louis Phillippe's Patriotic Red; Fighting Red by Tussy and Grenadier - The new Military red created by Tattoo, effective with air force blue and khaki.
During wartime, a subtle change had taken place in the marketing and the perception of make-up. It was no longer about making a woman seem ‘dainty’, but making her look and feel strong. Rosie the Riveter became a wartime icon in the USA, representing the six million women working in factories for the war effort. [Rockwell] portrayed Rosie as a vast figure in work dungarees, her short sleeves revealing arms the size of prize-winning hams. Behind her hangs the stars and stripes, squashed carelessly under her feet is a copy of Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and on her mighty lap rests a lunch box and a huge riveting machine like an enormous gun. [Her] henna red curls, lipsticked mouth and painted finger nails stress her femininity, emphasising the fact that make-up too was a weapon of war [Madeleine Marsh, Compact and Cosmetics: Beauty from the Victorian Times to the Present Day]
Anonymous asked: "somebody stop me before i write enjolras and grantaire as members of the french resistance who liaise with bucky and cap i swear to god" If you actually write this i will cry joyous tears of blood these pairings are my favs and i just please i
oh have no fears friend i will try and make something happen
these pairings are also my faves and the possibilities are kind of endless but like what i like to think about rn is how well people would get along
enjolras and steve would never shut up about country and discipline and duty and debating when it’s appropriate to defy authority
they’d warily respect each other from arm’s length; this is wartime and they are both responsible for their units
meanwhile, grantaire and bucky meet after bucky can’t find anything to drink in the village and grantaire has the last reserves of wine
they get along immediately, they’re both social creatures and big talkers with hidden depths, and then they realize they have a lot to talk about
"so, your leader," says bucky, tossing his head in an affectation of enjolras, "seems like a real handful."
"my friend," says grantaire. "you have no idea." then he looks closer at the try-me expression on bucky’s face, his raised eyebrow. "or perhaps i spoke too soon…"
"how much wine you got in that cellar?" bucky wants to know.
and then they spend the rest of the night commiserating about their asshole stalwart hero golden boyfriends and drinking each other under the table
