"How many times a week can a couple have a threesome with the same guy before it becomes some sort of three-way relationship?"
This was delightful as all hell, the perfect combination of Steve/Natasha (which is often necessary to balance this trio out, but also makes sense here and utterly sparkles) and Steve/Bucky/Natasha, the way the three of them navigate together and all stablize each other. The sex was delicious, but my favorite scene was Steve saying he and Natasha weren't missing anything together, that they were really good just the two of them, but they were even more with Bucky. Perfection. Add in sharp characterization (Steve's sense of humor! Natasha's bit of mischief! Bucky's exasperation! All things in just the right amount!) and a charming, funny, perfect ending and you've got a fic that was one of my favorites from my haul today!

After the dust settles, the only thing that's always left is the three of them.
This is pure porn, but is really well-balanced between the three of them, how this relationship works for all three together, especially lovely is the way Steve and Natasha take care of Bucky, who feels still precarious and fragile almost. Like he's only just beginning to allow the rest of the world in, starting with these two people, who understand that about him. It's also just really very nice porn and works as a possible future fic for these three, if you want to see it that way!

Itís a nondescript sort of a Wednesday morning when the Winter Soldier walks into SHIELD headquarters, bold as brass, and announces his intention to surrender.
This fic was written pre-Captain America 2, so there's more focus on the Bucky/Natasha connection from the comics, as well as things can't mesh with the canon of the movie, but I found that the fic absolutely nailed what I wanted from this trio. The Winter Soldier turns himself in and it's a long, slow process towards healing and Bucky coming back to himself and the relationship between these three slowly stabilizing him. It paid attention to all three sides of this trio (as much as it could, given that it's a Bucky POV piece) and everyone is gorgeously in character, it strikes that balance between all the sharp edges and heavy weights these characters have, while still working towards something good. I was hesitant about this threesome when walking into this fandom, because I wasn't sure it could be written so that all three were done justice as well as equally important to each other, if in different ways, but, oh, this fic achieved it and then some. It's a fascinating look at Bucky coming back to himself and the develoment of this trio. And so very, very hot, ahhhh.
