Title: The Captain and the Ghost
Rating: Teen and Up (Bucky/Tony; Rhodey/Carol background)
Summary: In the summer of 1970, Tony Stark is leading the expedition ship Marvel in search of the body of Steve Rogers. He has good friends with him: ship's captain Carol Danvers, medic Sam Wilson, best friend James Rhodes and boyfriend James Barnes, as well as scientist Vernon van Dyne and his daughter Janet. But they've also been assigned a diplomatic observer from the USSR named Natalia Romanoff, and the barren chill of Greenland is not the only threat dogging their search.
Notes: This is the third in the series that began with The Soldier And The Hurricane, an AU where Tony was born in 1950 and Bucky Barnes was recovered during a failed assassination attempt on the Starks in 1967.
Warnings: Some minor era-appropriate racism, some mentions of PTSD.

Also available at AO3.

The shout was a bellow of pure, unadulterated joy... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Confession
Rating: Gen
Summary: Peter Parker doesn't have to make a decision between his two callings -- but he thinks it's probably time he should.
Notes: It came to my attention that the Magazine'verse had exactly 55,555 words filed on it at AO3, so I thought I'd do some entertaining short writing for it. Someone suggested "You could add a 1,234 word story" and thus...
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

The Truth, by Peter Parker )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: The Judgement Of Bucky Barnes
Rating: General Audiences
Summary: Bucky is having some issues adjusting to the new world, but they aren't the ones Steve or anyone else expected.
Notes: Based on a comment on my "Russian Judges" story by TheRogueHuntress, requesting "a whole story about Bucky judging everyone and everything".
Warnings: None.

Also available at AO3.

I honestly was skeptical about this... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: Subtlety Not Our Strong Point
Rating: Teen and Up (Bucky/Sam)
Summary: Bucky is not good at proposing, but once he managed, he and Sam were going to let people find out organically. Unfortunately, Tony Stark has never done anything organically in his life.
Notes: This is a story set in the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve universe, after Desert Knights.
Warnings: Mention of PTSD-induced nightmares.

Also available at AO3.

James Barnes was a man of relatively few words. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Pretender and the Prince
Rating: Explicit (Bucky/Tony)
Summary: It's the fall of 1967, and Tony Stark is determined to do his father proud as the new head of Stark Robotics. Between his growing relationship with Tony and his new life as a recovering assassin, Bucky's just trying to stay on his feet. Then someone takes a shot at Tony in the middle of a busy workday, and all bets are off...
Notes: This follows a few months after The Soldier And The Hurricane, an AU where Tony was born in 1950 and Bucky was recovered in 1967, rather than assassinating Howard and Maria.
Warnings: Discussion and brief description of PTSD and trauma-related behavior; some brief discussion of period-appropriate homophobia.

Also available at AO3.

Dr. Stephen Strange was not a particularly reassuring or gentle man... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Puttin' On The Ritz
Rating: R (Steve/Bucky/Peggy)
Summary: It's 1951, Steve and Bucky are both home again, and Peggy couldn't be happier. But Bucky could be, which means Steve is fretting, and Peggy can't let her boys be unhappy when there's a very simple solution to this problem.
Warnings: Brief mentions of PTSD (nightmares).

Sequel to New Threads, in which Bucky was rescued from Hydra in the late 1940s and Steve was recovered from the ice in 1949.

Also available at AO3.

Steve's life, in the winter of 1950, was a strange one. )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: Flag On The Play
Rating: PG
Summary: Steve is haunted by a phantom pain he can't explain, and isn't sure how to ask for help. Fortunately, Tony is pretty sure he knows what's wrong, and how to sell the Avengers on fixing it.
Warnings: It's not simple to warn for, but Steve spends a significant part of the story isolated and unhappy about it; might be triggery for people with social anxiety issues.
Notes: Thanks to Scifigrl47 for helping me break the "how to I end this goddamn thing" block. I owe you a Mushroom Supreme. :D

Also available at AO3.

There was a dull ache in those days... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Steve Rogers Versus the Multiverse
Rating: PG
Summary: Agent Steve Rogers, callsign Nomad, has been pushed through a dimensional wall. Fortunately there are a couple of Tonys to set things right...
Warnings: None.
Notes: Set in the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve universe. This story arose out of three prompts asking for Tiny Spy Assassin Steve to visit other alternate universes:

From essie007: Tiny Assasain Steve meets other versions of himself from the multiverse including MCU and 616 and whoever else you want to include.
From mouseolaw: Would you do a Tiny!Steve meets MCU!Steve?
From chibiesque: I'd really love a short cross-over with tiny Steve and Captain America Steve.

Also available at AO3.

Captain America, respond! )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)

Title: Third Wheel

Warnings: None.
Notes: Inspired by this lovely art by Kelslk on Tumblr:

Original art here.

Also available at AO3.

Is it starting to become unsettling? )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
This is a series of short stories set in and around the Tiny Spy Assassin Steve AU, which is comprised (so far) of Toy Soldiers and Desert Knights. It may not make much sense without having read those first.

These are also available at AO3.


Title: Dinner and a Show
Rating: PG
Summary: Tony still thinks Steve is an art student. Steve still thinks Tony's going to dump him when he finds out the truth.
Notes: For the prompt by Quietellen on tumblr: "Can you write about what it might have looked like if Steve had rescued Tony but not revealed his true occupation and Tony went on thinking he was an artist? How else might Tony have learned the truth?"
Warnings: None.

When he made his escape from the Ten Rings... )

Title: This Looks Bad
Rating: PG
Warnings: Brief, non-lethal animal harm.
Summary: Meeting Natasha's boss is like meeting the guy who signs God's paychecks. (I realize this could also read "Clint and Steve fight a bird; the bird is unharmed.")
Notes: For a prompt by Anon: "TSAS Clint: Assholes Against the World! (or, how did they meet, and who got blown up when they did?)"

Wait, what do you mean, your boss? )

Title: Canonical
Rating: PG
Summary: Tony is wrong and Steve knows he's wrong and he knows Bucky and Sam will back him up on this – wait, what?
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from shakespearean-ginger, who said: "Tony and Steve's first really vicious fight where Steve is in the wrong."

You could not be more wrong. )

Title: Fight It Out
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Tony catches a hand-to-hand demonstration between Steve and Peggy. It makes an impression.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Anon: "Tony sees Steve training with the other spies."

It wasn't like Tony was unaware Steve could fight... )

Title: Not Not Married
Rating: PG
Summary: Peggy has a great idea about not being married.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Archwrites: "Peggy has Opinions. Because Peggy is awesome. I mean, this opens the door for basically just any Peggy fic."

You know, English... )

Title: The Underdogs
Rating: G
Summary: A covert op to bust up a nest of neo-nazis goes terribly, destructively right.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Scifigrl47, involving Steve, puppies, and the fourth of July.

Happy birthday to me! )

Title: Iron Nomad
Rating: PG
Summary: Steve is having the best anniversary ever. Tony is having a headache.
Warnings: None.
Notes: For a prompt from Anon: "Steve and Tony's second anniversary?"

This is the very goddamn definition of a busman's holiday. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: A Wing And A Prayer
Rating: PG (Tony/Pepper/Steve)
Summary: Tony Stark doesn't do anything in an ordinary way, including pet ownership.
Notes: This originated here. I can't really explain it. This is a vast, sprawling AU containing many parts; if you're interested in "DVD Extras" including short posts and fanart, you can check out the masterpost here.
Warnings: An animal is harmed but not killed, and the descriptions of harm are brief.

Benjamin Franklin's comments on the regal, noble American Turkey may be found here.

Also available at AO3.

It was a quiet night at the Millville Bird Sancutary just outside New York City... )
sam_storyteller: (Slash Fic)
Title: L☆VE
Summary: Steve's favorite shirt is at the center of a debate about masculinity, sexuality, and whether or not he did in fact steal it like a thief in the night from Tony.
Warnings: Some brief homophobia aimed at Steve.
Notes: So, I posted this image to Tumblr with the caption "I've found Steve's favorite shirt":

Things snowballed from there.

Really a lot of credit goes to ifeelbetterer on tumblr for the framework of the whole thing and at least 12% of the credit goes to notimpossiblejustabitunlikely on tumblr for pointing out that it was undoubtedly Tony's shirt first.

You can view and purchase the IT'S STARS AND STRIPES shirt here. It's been around a while, I didn't invent it or anything.

Also available at AO3.

Steve put his hands on his hips, surveying the table in front of him. )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: The Soldier And The Hurricane
Rating: PG-13
Summary: When the Winter Soldier fails to kill Howard and Maria Stark and is taken prisoner in the summer of 1967, his salvation comes in the unlikely form of a Russian-speaking, father-disobeying, endlessly-tinkering seventeen-year-old: Tony Stark.
Warnings: Mentions of alcoholism, brief mentions of suicide; various references to Howard Stark's terrible parenting (no child abuse, just...poor parenting).
Notes: I started writing this on my phone on the bus on the way to a walk-in clinic, and I don't think I wrote a single word where I wasn't running a fever. So have fun with that. I did. :D

Also available at AO3.

He hadn't been drinking that evening. )
sam_storyteller: (Gen Fic)
Title: Longform
Rating: PG-13 (Violence)
Summary: The Fugitive's History: A Search For A Man Out Of Time. (How I Found Bucky Barnes And Barely Lived To Tell About It.)
Notes: This is a sequel to Exclusive, which was written as a piece of longform journalism about the Avengers, pre-CA2 but set in a slightly alternate universe where the Avengers have moved into Stark Tower. Longform is set after CA2, pre-Age Of Ultron, and while it acknowledges the events of CA2, it uses the same general continuity as Exclusive.
Warnings: Mild violence; mentions and portrayal of PTSD. What you'd generally expect from a story with a barely-recovering Bucky at its core.

Also, there's no twist at the end of this one, guys, sorry. I couldn't top the twist at the end of the last story. :D

Also available at AO3.

There is only one professor of superheroism in the United States... )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Title: Desert Knights
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Steve is sent to Puente Antiguo on a leadership training exercise, Tony isn't feeling too well, and aliens might be invading.
Warnings: None.
Notes: Thanks to Knottahooker on Tumblr for beta-reading!

This is a sequel to "Toy Soldiers", in which Steve Rogers is a modern-day SHIELD agents without the Serum, and a lot of other things have changed as well. Toy Soldiers will be helpful reading before you hit this up!

Also available at AO3.

Steve was packing to return to New York... )
sam_storyteller: (Alternate Universe)
Title: Toy Soldiers
Rating: R
Summary: When Steve Rogers, five foot four and a hundred and ten pounds, met Tony Stark in a bar, he didn't expect it to lead to a relationship. Or that Tony would find out he's not an art student during a SHIELD rescue mission in Afghanistan.
Warnings: Violence; some brief discussion of suicide in a later chapter (no actual suicide or attempt).
Notes: Inspired by a prompt posted here. It got a little out of hand.

Also available at AO3.

Steve maybe didn't think this all the way through. )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Title: Latveria Is For Lovers
Rating: PG
Summary: Assassinating a threat to national security isn't how Clint wanted to spend Valentine's Day weekend, so it's just as well that Natasha Romanoff is really hard to kill.
Ships: Clint Barton/Phil Coulson; Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff; Clint Barton/Phil Coulson/Natasha Romanoff implied.
Warnings: None.

Originally written for the Marvel Throwdown's Valentine's Day Throwdown. Also available at AO3.

In January of 2015 I did a Bucky Barnes Fic Fest, where I took 40 prompts and wrote mini Bucky fics based on them. Here are the results, in more or less the order they were written.

sam_storyteller: (Default)
Every year I do a post of all the bits of fic I couldn't find a place for. Some stand alone pretty well; most are just starts I don't have the interest or energy to finish.

Thse works are also available at AO3.

Snowpiercer: After The End Of The World
Rating: PG
Summary: Curtis has hope, now. Yona has only her survival.
Notes: After seeing Snowpiercer, I desperately wanted to fix it, which I know is kind of directly opposing the spirit of the film. But the end was just...hard. So this was my idea for a fixit, which would eventually have included Curtis walking the train tracks to get back to New York.
Warnings: Brief discussions of cannibalism and rape. Brief nonconsensual drug use.

SPOILERS for the end of Snowpiercer.

For a moment she thought perhaps it was a sign. )

Captain America: The Greatest Generations
Rating: G
Summary: Steve couldn't be there for his children, and he won't abandon any of their children -- even if they're older than him now.
Notes: I wanted to try a different sort of story about Steve and kids, particularly about the possibility of a Serum breeding program. It got slightly out of hand and then ground madly to a halt.
Warnings: Discussion of parental death; brief discussion of all-partners-consensual extramarital affairs.

What happened to my kids? )

Captain America: Rebuilding SHIELD
Rating: PG
Summary: In the aftermath of SHIELD's destruction, Steve has more hard decisions -- and more friends -- than he expected.
Notes: This is a super long and going-nowhere-fast fic I wrote after seeing Winter Soldier three times in three days, and it was almost immediately jossed by Agents of Shield. Always the way.
Warnings: Extensive description of hospital stay and injury-related PTSD.

The police found James Barnes in the alley that used to lead to Steve's apartment... )

Marvel Comics: The Incredible Roadtrippers
Rating: PG
Summary: Steve and Bucky are good role models who make poor life decisions.
Notes: This was a longer take on my "Quentin as the spiritual successor to Captain America" fic I did here.
Warnings: None.

I put some lasagne aside for you. )

Captain America: Twelve Tiny Steves Again
Rating: PG
Summary: Bucky can't help looking after Steve. Even eight of him.
Notes: This is a more traditional take on the Twelve Tiny Steves trope, inspired by this post.
Warnings: Brief scene of child abuse.

It's been a year since Bucky came back... )

Avengers: The Offspring
Rating: PG
Summary: When Tony and Rumiko's daughter announces she's marrying Rhodey and Carol's son, Steve might be the only one who can prevent another civil war.
Notes: I don't even remember where this came from, but it was fun writing Tony with a kid, and doubly so Rhodey and Carol.
Warnings: None.
Five days was all I asked. )

Avengers: The Time Gem
Rating: G
Summary: Steve is tiny, Bucky is back, and Sam and Tony both need a drink.
Notes: I love writing uppity tiny Steve. But I realized even more than that, I wanted Classic Bucky Barnes and the modern Avengers.
Warnings: None.

The hows and why aren't really that important. )
sam_storyteller: (Default)
Title: Steve Rogers Vs. The All-American Feast
Rating: G
Summary: Steve can't resist a challenge, even when the challenge is a five pound pulled-pork sandwich.

Notes on inspiration: Inspired by this wonderful piece of art which was linked to me by Meariver. While this wasn't a direct inspiration, about 3/4 of the way through the story Blackestglass linked me to this post about Luxo the miniature light-painting robot, which is well worth sharing as well.
Notes on rank: I don't believe Sam's rank is mentioned or indicated in the film anywhere; I couldn't find information on it at the various wikis, so I made him a Major, high-ranking enough to suit his talents but not so high ranking he would be unrealistically young.

Page Summary

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
-- Samuel Butler

What is written without effort is generally read without pleasure.
-- Samuel Johnson

Same story, different versions, and all are true.
-- POTC: Dead Man's Chest

I am a humble artist
moulding my earthly clod,
adding my labour to nature's,
simply assisting God.
-- Piet Hein

Every archaeologist knows in his heart why he digs. He digs, in pity and humility, that the dead may live again, that what is past may not be forever lost, that something may be salvaged from the wrack of the ages.
-- From "The Testimony of the Spade"

Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man.
-- Francis Bacon

It is better, of course, to know useless things than to know nothing.
-- Seneca epistles 88 45

When asked how she acquired her knowledge of science, Octavia Butler replied, "I read."

Imagination is more important than information.
-- Albert Einstein
