Wings Behaving Badly (SamBucky fics)
Some of my favorite (mostly E-rated) takes on wings (and a couple of my own) with Samtember Day 21 (wings) in mind....
Sam with real wings:
Blackbird Wings by @sassysnowperson | 4651w | rated E
"God damn it," Sam swore heartily, trying to scratch between his shoulder blades. It itched. It itched like nothing had ever fucking itched before in his life. And that was counting the one summer day he and Sarah had played in the creek without putting on any mosquito repellent and Sam had gotten bit forty-four times.
Keep Thee In All Thy Ways by @abarbaricyalp | 2532w | rated M
Bucky was just about thrumming out of his skin. Not entirely figuratively. Sam, beside him, was much more composed. But there was a ready grin on his mouth that he usually kept a little more hidden. All the promises in that grin were not helping Bucky keep himself contained. They sought these events out like a challenge, chances to be their true selves without attracting too much attention. Or, at least, the bad kind of attention. Krampus celebrations and monster conventions and horror movie events all kept them sated throughout the year, but Halloween and haunted houses were easiest....
Featherlight by @anactorya | 4131w | rated E
After an accident in a creepy lab, Sam ends up with actual wings. Great big, white, feathery angel wings, which are way more of a pain in the ass than you'd think. Bucky offers him a helping hand.
Sam's Captain America wings read his mind:
Birds Flying High (you know how I feel) by @liminalmess | 2867w | rated E
When Sam had asked Bucky if he wanted to tag along to his first time training Torres on using the Falcon wings, Bucky replied with a smirk and a “yeah, I’m not missing a chance to stare at you unbothered while you fly.” It drew a head shake and a grin Sam tried to hide by turning away to pack his bag. Bucky caught it anyway and laughed quietly.

When Sam realizes that his wings low-key read his mind, he starts reflecting on things. If this had slipped by his attention for so long, what else had changed while Sam wasn’t looking? One of those changes might be how he looks at Bucky. Another might be how Bucky looks at him.
Sam's Captain America wings are useful for concealing certain activities:
Take Me Under Your Wings by @yavannie | 6224w | rated E
Bucky smiles again, wolfish this time, and says: “You know, every time we end up under here, I think about all the things we could do without anyone knowing.”
Practice Makes Perfect by the_crown_jules | 6666w | rated E
Bucky’s embarrassing encounter with the side of a building means he’s stuck practicing aerial catches with Sam. How much time can Bucky spend wrapped around the man he’s in love with before he can’t hide his feelings….or other things? One way or another, he’s about to find out.
