    Summary

    It’s no less than he deserves, but it doesn’t make it any easier, every time he looks in a mirror and sees the Asset staring back.

    When Steve turns him around, he shakes, afraid for a brief, bright moment that none of it will have made any difference; that he will look for humanity and still find a monster in return. But Steve stands by him and he is reminded that Steve is brave every day. So for him, Bucky can be brave too; he thinks, he will never earn any grace by being a coward.

    Bucky looks up and meets his own eyes.

    *

    A story of how Bucky Barnes learns to love himself again and how Steve shows him the way.

    Summary

    So really, Bucky told himself frequently, he couldn’t complain. Sure, he had anxiety and nightmares and... other issues, but those were par for the course for a survivor like him. It was fine. Everything was fine, or at least as fine as it was probably ever gonna get.

    But all of that was little consolation when he woke up hard as a rock and unable to find relief at 4 in the morning at least a few times a week.


    Post Captain America: The Winter Soldier AU, where Bucky comes home to Steve, Civil War never happens, and he and Steve stumble into uncharted waters together.

    Summary

    Steve wakes up on the cold stone floor of the foyer. He scrambles up; there’s glass shards everywhere and they crunch under his gloved hands. People are staring, holding themselves back. They must have seen the fight, must have seen two of him.

    His own voice rings in his head.

    “Bucky is alive!”

     

    It’s all gone FUBAR in 2012.

    Summary

    "You keep asking me what I want," Bucky manages, eventually. "But on any given day, my number one priority is to get through the day alive and myself, and to do it without killing anyone. Everything else is extra."
