    Summary

    “My mom, she’s not perfect, but she always had this one saying. You can’t look right into the sunset, because the light will burn your eyes. So you have to face east, right?” Bucky tucks his forehead against Steve’s chest, staring down the gap between them, eyes on their feet. “And when you do, you can look at the ground, and you can see your own shadow.”

    Bucky raises his head after a contemplative silence and gazes up at Steve. Those stormy gray eyes are filled with luminance, iridescence, splintered rays of shining light.

    “Or—Mom would say—you can look in front of you.” His lashes kiss his cheeks in butterfly pulses every time he blinks. “And ‘God’s light at your back will show you everything.’”

    The AU Farmer Daddy Steve and Bucky story. Updates Wednesdays and once per weekend.

    Summary

    Arrange yourself, my study. Your hellish expression will harrow me all night long and I fear that not even the absurd volume of punch my mother is insisting upon will be enough to raise your spirits.

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. Steve Rogers of Chatsworth House is single—supposedly—and in possession of good fortune. However, the matrons of Devonshire society are to be eternally disappointed, as Mister Rogers’ heart already has a seal stamped upon it.

    OR Steve and Bucky in a regency romance absolutely stuffed with pride, prejudice and... kink.

    Summary

    Lips brush his ear and a voice of distilled sin asks, “May I have this dance?”

    Bucky tips his head back, hyperaware of the miniscule comm tucked into his other ear, and says, “I think this is the wrong scene for that, pal.”

    The mouth pressed to his ear curves into a smile.

    “Well, not with that attitude,” the man says, spinning Bucky around with a strength that surprises him.

    Once he lays eyes on the owner of the thick arms and husky voice, Bucky’s cock shakes off the last of its disinterest to say hi. But Bucky’s a fucking professional, and he’s got a vampire to stake, so he spins them around, savoring how the man’s eyes widen at the manhandling. If he’s bothered by the metal fingers digging into his hip, he doesn’t show it, gamely pressing closer to Bucky once they’re still. Bucky allows it because they’re close in height; the man has maybe a couple of centimeters on him. Either way, he can watch the dancing vampire over his shoulder. And if the slide of the man’s thigh between his legs is distracting, well, Bucky’s worked in worse circumstances.

    “Still in position, Barnes?” Rumlow asks. “Or did you fuck off to get dicked?”

    Summary

    Bucky was always extremely good at getting what he wanted. He won hearts, bets, card games, and took shots, risks and leaps successfully or not at all. No hesitation.

    The only, single exception to this rule is Steve.

    Steve makes him beg.

    OR Bucky didn't become the Winter Soldier, he became a vampire in 1945 instead. And Hallowe'en in the Captain America-Barnes household is a little bit wild.
