4 recs, Marvel, Natasha/Bucky  
I just want to preface this list by saying that I will go down with this ship like none other, and what you see here is a very narrowed-down list of the truly absurd number of Winter Widow fics I'd rec if I had the time.

Fandom: Marvel
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Bucky Barnes
Title: It’s complicated
Author: medeafive
Link: https://archiveofourown.org/works/6501484
Rating/Warning(s): Mature
Word Count/WIP?: 1,546 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: Restrained, a little heartbreaking, and a little promising, this fic manages to contend with Natasha’s reproductive issues, Bucky’s return to the world, and their undefined but important relationship to each other.

Fandom: Marvel
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Bucky Barnes
Title: Turning up the Heat
Author: kiss_me_cassie

Why This Must Be Read: Honestly, I just find this fic really, really hot. It’s a bunch of stuff I don’t usually go for, but the author manages to turn it all into something unique and very enjoyable.

Fandom: Marvel
Pairing: Natasha Romanoff/Bucky Barnes
Title: How We Get There
Author: gr8escap

Rating/Warning(s): Teen (includes discussion of past child abuse and a past suicide attempt)
Word Count/WIP?: 43,645 (complete)
Recced on LiveJournal By: stars_inthe_sky

Why This Must Be Read: Earnest and enjoyable, this AU follows the pair on a road trip along the famous U.S. Route 66, with all the fun, tropey, and unexpectedly meaningful moments that that sets up. The author does a beautiful job of worldbuilding—the trip itself feels like its own character—while never forgetting the events and experiences that made these two who they are.

Why This Must Be Read: If you read a lot of this pairing—or MCU fic more broadly—you probably know this author, and with good reason. They have a way of digging into the characters and finding incredible nuance, insight, and heart. This fic is no exception, following the pair on a quest to contend with Natasha’s past (and a bit of Bucky’s, too).
