    Summary

    The man blows out a breath. It's a surprisingly prosaic noise. "Let's start over," he decides. "I'm Bucky." He wraps Percy's leash around his left hand, leans down, and holds out his right. Steve takes it. It's warm and calloused, the skin a little rough. "Bucky Barnes." He tugs at Steve's hand and Steve lets himself be helped to his feet.

    "Steve Rogers," Steve says. "What the fuck?"

    Bucky laughs.

    Steve has to make himself let go of Bucky's hand after what he hopes is a normal amount of time, not a creeper amount of time. Bucky's laugh is really nice. He thinks he'd like to hear it again. But first, there's the matter of the gryphon.

    *****

    In which Steve Rogers stumbles across the Barnes Exotic Animal Rescue for Magical Creatures, meets a witch named Bucky, accidentally adopts a unicorn, and never wants to leave.

    Summary

    Before he was Captain America, he was Steve Rogers, knobby kneed and wild-eyed, with scrapes on his knuckles and a book in his hands.

    In 1942, he leaves for war and eventually crashes the Valkyrie.

    That's only the beginning of his story.

    In 2011, Steve's body is dragged from ice off the coast of Greenland.

    In 2015, he meets a bookstore clerk.

    This is what happens when a superhero loses his way home and the only way back is through the Yellow Book Road.

    Summary

    “You’re the one who wanted to see how far I could push you. You know how I like to follow orders, Buck,” Steve tells him, teasing drawl to his voice because Steve Rogers has never followed a goddamn order in his goddamn life up ‘til right about now.

    Summary

    Bucky flips to the next page, and the world around him grinds to a halt as his brain struggles to process what he's seeing. The noise of the train fades and static fills the inside of his head as he looks down at the sketches of the metal-armed guy without the mask. It's—that's him. It's Bucky's own goddamn face staring back at him from this stranger's sketchbook.

    "What the fuck."

     
    (Or, as I like to refer to it: two absolute disasters figure out how to use their words and touch mouth parts.)

    Summary

    Steve takes the herd back to the same spot the next day in his bid to prove Sam wrong. He spends the entire day there and doesn’t see anyone else. Just as he’s about to take the goats back home, a man with shoulder-length brown hair, eyes like the stormy sea, and a bronze metal arm pops into existence a few feet away from him.

    “Hi. Have you lost anything today?” the man asks.

    Steve screams.

    The man screams back.

    Steve picks up a rock and throws it at the guy, hitting him in the forehead. “Ow, the fuck!” the man shouts. Steve bends down to get another rock to throw, but the man is gone again by the time he straightens up.

    Steve sighs. He’s never going to hear the end of this from Sam.

    *****

    Ancient Greece AU. Bucky is the God of Lost Things, a lesser god. His best friend is a crow that he can understand. Steve is a spirited goat herder. Apollo meddles a lot and looks like a young Robert Redford. Hilarity (and some angst) ensues!
