    Summary

    In the chaotic years after Steve Rogers arrives back in 2023 as an old man, he helps rebuild the world, falls in love with his best friend, adopts a stray cat, and saves the entire timeline. Not necessarily in that order.

    “Now you’re slow enough for me to catch you the next time you try to do something stupid.” Bucky leans close and jostles their arms together. “That’s the best part.”

    Steve presses a wrinkled hand to his chest. “I’ve matured, James Barnes. I would never do something stupid.”

    Bucky rolls his eyes and drops an arm over Steve’s stooped shoulders. “Yeah, you’re still a punk, old man.”

    Summary

    When the man reaches for his drink, Steve can’t meet his eyes, instead focusing on the brief splashes of colour at the man's wrists. They’re gorgeous, swirls of colour and sharp lines disappearing under fabric, and Steve's fingers itch to draw them.
    The man clears his throat, and Steve's head jerks up, flushing as the man raises an eyebrow at him. He looks down pointedly, and Steve follows his gaze, to where his hand is still firmly wrapped around the cup. "Oh, uh, sorry," Steve mumbles, quickly pulling his hand back, and the man - Bucky, according to the order ticket - grins.

    "If you're lucky I'll show them to you properly sometime," Bucky says easily, and Steve melts a little at the deep rumble of his voice. He blinks again, goes to respond, but Bucky’s turning, walking away with a sway in his step and a wink thrown over his shoulder.

    Yeah. Fuck.

    Steve is gone.

    --

    Or: the one where Steve owns a coffee shop, Bucky's a greenwitch, and neither of them are okay, but they're trying to be.

    Summary

    The man lifts his head which means the cap brim is no longer hiding his face and the friendly smile that was growing on Steve’s lips suddenly freezes, as do his legs mid-step when his eyes lock with the man’s startling blue ones.

    He knows those eyes. Hell, he knows that face.

    “Bucky?”

    OR Steve’s friendship with his childhood best friend ended suddenly after one night of mistakes and misunderstandings and he has spend the last eighteen years trying to forget about it and move on. But when he runs into him again, after so much time and so much life lived, everything gets brought back to the surface. Including feelings he never wanted to acknowledge.
