Sabre’s Top Five
I love all your recs so dearly, so I thought I’d ask, seeing as you seem to have excellent taste, what are your top 5 absolute fav must reads? (Anything but PWPs)
Oh, gosh, well…top 5? That’s tough, Anon. But, at least in this exact moment of this day, here are my favorites (in no particular order, they’re like my children):
Never Too Late for Love by @sineala: Steve has always believed that a soulbond is a blessing – a rare and beautiful miracle, joining the thoughts and feelings of two people forever, from the first time they touch. Steve knows he’s not going to be one of the lucky ones. He knows Gail isn’t his soulmate. But he loves her, even if they’re not soulmates, and he’s going to do right by her. After the war’s over, he’s going to marry her, and they’re going to settle down. They’ll buy a house. They’ll have children. He’ll see his family again. Maybe Bucky will live next door. It’s going to be a good life. He doesn’t need a soulbond. He’ll be fine without one.Then Steve wakes up sixty years in the future to find that his wonderful life has moved on without him. His family is long dead. His fiancée married his best friend. And the only purpose he has left is leading the Ultimates, a misbegotten team of superheroes with flaws too numerous to count. Steve hates everything about the future – but most of all he detests Tony, flashy and flirtatious, who embodies everything Steve hates about a world he never wanted to live in.And, oh, yeah, Steve has a soulmate after all: Tony fucking Stark.
Think of This as Solving Problems (That Never Should Have Occurred) by @sineala:
No one knows Tony is Iron Man. Then Tony gets amnesia, and literally no one knows Tony is Iron Man.
Sins of Omission by @kiyaar: A Post-Civil War, Pre-Secret Invasion AU where Steve is dead, Tony’s a mess, and everything sucks.In which Tony deals poorly with Steve’s death, falls off the wagon, sees ghosts, and misses a lot.Oh, and the Skrulls are about to invade.
“Fuck my life. Why me?” Tony asked.
In the Stillness of Remembering by @elise509:
Steve Rogers is a reminder of a past that Tony Stark would rather forget. But when Steve’s own ghosts suddenly become the present, Tony finds he and Steve need each other to face the future.
Honorable Mention for Porn With Some Plot Favorite: voglio sentirti by lackluster_lexicon:
Steve returns to Stark Tower ten months after leaving Tony in Siberia.
