Peter needs to find his godfather, in order to do that he has to cross a mountain, easy right? Wrong turns out the forest isn't call the "Forest of Evil" by locals for nothing. However, Peter is out of options and most cross the forest in order to find his last chance of family, love, and safety. Plus its what May wanted. Well maybe she wouldn't have wanted him to almost be eaten by a terrifying monster but once he recovers from his injuries he will just have to convince the grumpy forest hermit to help him cross the rest of the forest. Until then, Bucky isn't so bad...
Bucky just wants to spend his (cursed) immortal life with Steve in peace. Sadly, Peter comes in a ruins that and now he's left caring for the kid until he recovers, oh well at least peter is kinda helpful and totally sweet and all the creatures love him. And yeah, okay, Peter reminds Bucky a lot of May, who he misses terribly.
Basically, Bucky and Steve are immortal caretakers to a sentient and enchanted forest (plus all the creatures supernatural or not that call it home) and Peter is just looking for a home with the person his aunt and uncle trusted most. Shenanigans ensue.

Shuri and Wanda cleared Bucky's triggers shortly after Killmonger's attempted coup, and he and Steve went on the run. But it turns out there's more to "fixing Bucky's head" than "getting Hydra out of it." When a group of rogue scientists manage to neutralize the serum and make Steve very sick--pre-serum "this is bad" kind of sick--and they're cut off from contact with Wakanda, Bucky knows only one person with resources to help.
He calls Tony and surrenders on the condition that Tony tries to help Steve.
From there, it's basically three variously messed-up guys’ trajectories from "This Is Fine", "Reasonably Speaking I Know It’s Fine", "I Will Be Fine With It" to actually being fine, guest-starring a far-better-adjusted teenage boy who climbs walls, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, two women with a keen sense of the absurd, and Bruce, the Zen master of “it’s fine that it’s not fine.”
Add in the fact that Bucky's been secretly in love with Steve since the thirties and things only get harder. Learning to be a person is the hardest thing Bucky Barnes will ever have to do--but he's got company along the way.

(Or: How Bucky Barnes finds the one person on the world more kind than Peter Parker)
May should know better better, but sometimes, she just needs to help.
Even when that person is a hobo with shoulders broader than a building and hair that could be amazing, except for the wood and metal and - is that a tooth?

Steve returns from the bathroom as soon as Bucky’s eyes close. “Buck!”
He groans. “Nope. I’m going back to bed. Nope.”
“We’re going to be late.”
“Your surprise.” Steve waits for Bucky to move, gives up after a moment. Then, like an asshole, he settles his tiny ass on Bucky’s hips and fucking tickles him.
“Goddammit, Steve,” Bucky nearly shrieks. He opens his eyes wide and pushes at Steve’s massive shoulders. “Off, off.”
Steve relents, but doesn’t get off — apparently, it’s just too funny. He drops so they’re chest to chest, laughing so hard he’s making them both shake with it.
“Stevie,” Bucky complains, but he’s smiling wide enough for it to hurt. It doesn’t quite hit the intended mark.
A fic spanning from April 10th, 2011 to August 21st, 2016. Read as Bucky and Steve encounter relationship woes, superhero-dom, cute animals named after beloved characters, Bucky's hilarious family, tragedy, and the Accords. Not necessarily in that order.
