    Summary

    Bucky was one of the best violinists in the country -- perhaps in the world -- until the accident that took his arm six months ago. All he wants now is to settle into his new apartment and try to recover even a fraction of his ability with the new prosthetic that he hates almost as much as he appreciates.

    Tony moved out of his parents' home to get away from their memories and so he wouldn't have to endure quite so many of Obie's bracing pep talks. Tony just wants to get drunk, get laid, and get his invention on. Unfortunately, his new downstairs neighbor seems to feel obliged to practice his music at some ungodly hour of the morning.

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier was created to take the pain of the HYDRA's torture. He wasn't meant to stick around after James goes free, but he does.

    Winter, though, wants to learn. James told him that killing people was a wrong, but why? He told him that he was a monster, but how? What made him bad? Why was he evil if he protected James? If he took the pain from The Chair, if he took over so that James didn't have to kill people?

    At this point, Winter is more afraid of James - is more hurt by James - than James is of him. Winter is trying to learn, trying to grow, but he doesn't stand a chance when he's stuck in James' body. When he's stuck around people who can't stand him, people who think he'd go out and kill babies or worse if he was ever to go free.

    One morning, Bucky gets a surprise visit from one Stephen Strange with an offer to separate their mind, Bucky was on board. He wanted Winter to just go away and leave him alone as he tried to get back to a normal life with Stevie. But then he, Winter, gets his own body, is picked up by Tony Stark, and protected by the entirety of the rest of the compound, three of the four residential wings. So what now?

    Winter just wants love.
