    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a boy named Bucky.

    This boy was like others you might know. He liked to fight wolves, pretend he was a knight, and wage magnificent wars against the most villainous of villains. He played knights and vanquished all the villains he and his friends could imagine. But then he grew up, and the villains vanquished him.

    And there was another boy; Steve. He was not much like other boys you’d know, or maybe he is, depending on the sort of boys you know. Wars were not his ideal session of make-believe. He liked to befriend wolves rather than fight them. He was a boy, but he grew up long before he should have.

    Adventures always start with kids like that. Bucky was the boy who took too long to start the process of growing up and then grew up all in one night. Steve was the boy who grew up much too quickly to have been a boy in the first place. This story might sound like it’s about just one of these boys, but that’s not really true. It’s not really about either of them, because to say that it’s about one of them would be disingenuous. Candidly, this story is about what they grew up to be.

    The wolf and the witch that befriended him.

    Summary

    “What is the music?” Steve asks.
     
    “That? Oh, just the warp and weft of Creation as it births itself, moment by moment,” the pale man says, cocks his head at Steve and smiles a crooked little half-smile, and—
     
    “Teach me,” Steve says, and the man grins.

    Bucky's nearly thirty and has never been spanked. For most people, this wouldn't be a pressing concern. Bucky is not most people.

    Summary

    Bucky casts around the field, the light rapidly fading as the storm clouds grow denser, swallowing up the weak winter sun. The spirits are here, he can feel them, their amorphous thoughts, panicked and trembling. They can feel his own fear, rising in the back of his throat, fuelling their own terror.
    Bucky reaches for the chain around his neck, fumbling for his amulets. His fingers close around the two pieces of silver, fine and bright as the scars on his arm.
    Please. Please keep me safe.

    Summary

    "I wanna eat you, Steve," he whispers. "I wanna fucking eat you. Just wanna . . . Just let me, Steve. Just give me a little taste. Just a little."

    "Bucky." Steve wants to laugh, but then again, he doesn't at all. He wants to turn around in Bucky's arms and – "You the Soldier now or something?"

    Bucky doesn't answer.

    The Winter Soldier is an ancient, bloodthirsty creature of legend. In 1945, Hydra perfects the serum that can turn a good man into an infamous harbinger of death. No one has ever crossed paths with one and lived, or so they say.

    Steve Rogers has always been exceptional.
