    Summary

    Here's the thing. Steve is an outspoken leader of the fight for escort legalization. He's passionate about safe work environments for escorts. He wants to show the world that they have relationships just like everyone else.

    Here's the other thing. Steve hasn't dated in the past five years because he's been so busy with work. He and his coworker Bucky are the most requested pair at Stark Escort Services.

    Ah, what the hell. A few more things: Bucky's still not quite recovered from a bad relationship with a boyfriend who degraded his choice of work. And while he can define professional boundaries like it's his job (it is), Bucky's not great at handling his personal life.

    A story of navigating tricky work relationships in five chapters.

    Summary

    “They’re not going to stop coming after me,” Bucky tells Steve, somewhere in the air above Siberia.

    “Let them come,” Steve replies, furious still.
     

    After Siberia, instead of seeking refuge in Wakanda, Bucky and Steve go on the run.

    Summary

    It’s the quality that gets him first. The profile photo looks like it's been taken with a semi-professional camera: it's sharp and remarkably unposed compared to most people on Tinder. The guy in the photo is the size of a fucking fridge but with Marilyn Monroe’s waistline, accentuated by the way he’s standing half-twisted towards the camera.

    He’s also in the process of getting arrested.

    Steve, 28, it says under the photo. New York City. Some say I have an arresting personality. This photo is from my good side. The other has a shiner.

    Summary

    Okay, so the real problem is that you shouldn’t fuck your arch-rival, political enemy, and the person you loathe the most in the world where you work. Or like, at least, you shouldn’t keep doing that.

    But okay, the thing that Descartes or whoever didn’t know was that Steve really tries, but Bucky Barnes has a mouth that should probably constitute an eighth sin or something.

    Jesus fucking Christ, Sam’s going to kill him.

    (or—Steve’s best friend is the U.S. Constitution and he can’t seem to stop fucking a hot Republican. They shouldn’t fall in love, but somehow they do. That’s it, that’s the fic.)
