    Summary

    Inspired by coffeestainanalyst's "Windmills".

    The asset has goals, and he has a plan to get them.

    Primary goal: be reassigned for recreational use only.

    Secondary goal: avoid painful injury during said use as often as possible.

    Tertiary goal: be reserved for the exclusive use of Captain Rogers.

    It's been so long since he was allowed to want anything, but he doesn't want to kill anymore--and he knows the best way to avoid the field is to give them something they want more.

    Summary

    Their rivalry begins like this: they’re teenagers, skating the same circuits, competing in the same competitions. What happens is that they compete against each other for the novice boy’s title in the North Atlantic Regional Figure Skating Competition and they both somehow tie for first place. There are no ties in competition, but their scores are identical across the board.

    Steve hates that Bucky took his win from him and Bucky hates that Steve thinks he won instead of tying, like the results said. The ensuing verbal scuffle had cemented what would come to be a slightly unhealthy long-term skating rivalry.

    The intervening years don't help.

    ***

    Perennial rivals since childhood, Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes face off against each other to achieve their Olympic figure skating dreams. But when bad luck and bad falls get in their way, Steve realizes there might only be one way to make it to Wakanda after all.

    It's reckless and it's definitely incredibly stupid, but to win Olympic gold, these two enemies will need to come together as a pair--on the ice and off.

    Summary

    A whole bouquet worth of flowers ends up on their bed the night of the wedding, the colours almost sombre.
    “Well,” Steve says and stops unbuttoning his shirt, “I guess we married for nothing.”

    - Tony is dying from unrequited love for Captain America, who is first a dead hero and then a very alive one just as disinterested in Tony as Howard had always promised.

    Summary

    The serum enhances Steve’s physical attributes to peak condition. All of them. Unfortunately, ‘enhanced’ doesn’t necessarily mean ‘optimal’ or ‘something that a fella wishes to show the girl of his dreams on their wedding night.’
