Summary:

Sedryn Amathion is a young Ñoldor elf born of lower Himring near the end of the harrowed Second Age. Vice-Captain of the Forlindon Shieldmasters, herald of the High King Gil-Galad, and devotee of Eärendil, the Star of High Hope.

Or, as the ragtag Dúnedain troupe known as the Howling Commandos calls him, Steve.

The Commandos are to sabotage an orc signal tower deep within the Ephel Dúath mountains, clearing the way for the armies of the Last Alliance to march on Barad-dûr and rescue all of Middle-earth from the clutches of this new and terrible Dark Lord.

“Steve” has no way of knowing that love formed deep behind enemy lines would settle so completely inside his immortal heart, defying time, distance, and ultimately death itself.

I'm trying to continue with posting trope/theme rec sets. This time Bucky post-WS recovery stories featuring therapy somewhat prominently.

Works No Longer in Progress: Bucky Recovery Fic, by Alex51324. Gen, team. (36,175 words, unfinished)
I'm reccing this even though it's been posted as unfinished fragment, because what is there is very enjoyable, and a distinct take on the Bucky recovery theme, and features an Avengers team with their own mental health issues. (There is also a paragraph with a synopsis where the author saw it going.)

lilies with full hands, by refusals. Slash, Steve/Bucky. (102,011 words)
This is the therapy fic I was looking for a couple of days ago. It actually features several therapists, before Bucky finds one he can work with. It is also a rape recovery story, so it's one of those stories that sort of piles on trauma, which I know is not for everyone. However, Bucky is also shown to actively work on his recovery, and he finds ways to cope with his issues. So he is messed up, but still a competent adult, which I enjoyed.

I've decided that if I ever want to get back to actually posting any recs instead of just sitting paralyzed in front of my giant pile of bookmarks, I need to abandon the idea of "catching up" in any systematic way and just pick a trope/theme and post a limited number of stories that I enjoyed, say five. This really pains my inner completist, because I have bookmarked three times that number of Captain America time travel stories that I enjoyed.

From Winter's Cold, by 27dragons. Slash, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers/Tony Stark. (64,370 words)
Tony travels back in time accidentally and tries to fix things.

Thermotemporal Equations, by Blinky the Tree Frog. Gen. (48,149 words)
Bucky from the past gets transported to the future. I read this as it was posted in chapters, and it had me so on edge.

Sleepers of Ephesus, by Domenika Marzione. Gen, WIP. (some 50,000 words so far)
This one is still a WIP, but a great action-adventure with Bucky and Peggy working together. It's also stands out because Peggy travels forward in time, but then has adventures in the present with Bucky rather than a plot about fixing the past by taking information back again or such, which is more common with this trope.

to memory now I can't recall, by Etharei. Slash, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers. (102,600 words)
A body switching take on time travel, i.e. past and present Bucky switch places. The time travel epic everybody has read already, but still great.

The Blue-Eyed Boys of Brooklyn by die_traumerei. Slash, Bucky Barnes/Steve Rogers. (7,003 words)
This is a short but neat take on the time travel fix-it.
ratcreature: RatCreature as Spidey (spidey)
In March I recced Marvel fanart on [community profile] fanart_recs, and you can browse all five of them under the Marvel tag there. I recced some Daredevil, Spider-Man and Wolverine fanart. In April I volunteered myself for Tolkien fanart recs again. Others are going to rec Alice in Wonderland, Inception, Merlin, Sandman, Sherlock, and SGA.

BTW, if anyone was interested to post some recs there, it is not too late to still squeeze in at the last minute for April, or sign up for May or later. Reccers for all fandoms are always welcome to sign up, for any genres and ratings.
