I'm super new to Tumblr and basically got it so that I could keep up with some of the very talented writers I've come across on Ao3, yourself included. So not 100% sure how these asks work 😅 Do you have any fics to recommend while we wait for an update on Limbs? It's one of the best Bucky fics I've found so far, so I figure any fic that has caught your interest must be worth reading too!
Oh don't worry, tumblr is a confusing hell site and I'm still learning how to use it. Thank you for following, btw :^)
I have a very long Google Docs ficlist so I'll include my favorite ones here:
Well first I'm gonna shoutout undertalefa for doing Sam and Bucky's POVs of "limbs" so go read those if you're feeling angsty: limbs POVs series
Give an Inch by Lauralot (Steve/Bucky) is absolutely heartbreaking, mostly Stucky (and y'all know I'm a SamBucky girl, but this one hit me hard anyway) from Bucky's POV, delves into his trauma in a very visceral way.
annihilation by ellenuiene (Sam/Bucky) is a one shot on episode 3 of TFATWS; the aftermath of Bucky pretending to be the Winter Soldier. Super beautiful descriptions, it sucked me in completely.
lillies with full hands by refusals (Steve/Bucky) is a classic—posted in 2014, so the characterizations seem a bit OOC at times, but their writing style heavily influenced my own, especially since there's pretty advanced metaphors and vocabulary in there. Very trauma centric, and a very long read, but I think it's worth it.
unjust means by NamelessDragon (Sam&Bucky) contains non–con and a lot of Sam worrying about Bucky afterward. Basically Selby gets her trade in episode 3, taking a divergent route in the story. I found the ending to be really soft and really powerful.
no one elevates you by naimeria (Sam/Bucky) this one is so beautiful and so realistic, lots of angst but also healing...I don't wanna spoil it but just give this one a read!
keep the ashes from my heart (and walk away) by coffeeinallcaps (Sam/Bucky) just go read the summary and tell me that doesn't hook ya.
They're Sayin' (You're Gonna Be My Man) by ForASecondThereWedWon (Sam/Bucky) so either I go for super heavy angst or tooth-rotting fluff...this is the latter, and so, so domestic, also very in character, which is a must when I read fics.
Stare Enough by ForASecondThereWedWon (Sam/Bucky) is another AMAZING fic, super cute, the setting is during the party at Sarah's in episode 6...bruh I've read this one a billion times. I can't get over how much I love it.
Longing by Face_of_Poe (Sam/Bucky) also another recovery fic with Bucky at Sarah's house, it's 5k words but you hang on to every single syllable.
I've got a lot more, but these are my favorites!
