    Summary

    The first time Steve visits Wakanda, Bucky plans it obsessively.

    He picks neutral clothes, the ones Steve will expect, trims his beard and lets Shuri tie back his hair. He studies himself in the mirror for twenty minutes in her bathroom and pulls it back out again, then keeps staring until she yells something exasperated through the door about white boys and their vanity, and he puts himself together and goes down to the plaza and completely freezes when Steve gets out of the plane.

    Summary

    “It’s going to rain,” says Steve.

    Bucky squints out the window. He sways slightly as the train jolts on its tracks, but doesn’t reach for the handhold. Through the trusses, the sky outside is gray, reflecting oily and leaden on the East River. The air feels heavy, warm for late October. “It’s not going to rain.”

    Steve snorts. He can’t help smiling. “It is. You know it is. Not everything in the world just arranges itself according to the will of Bucky Barnes.”

    Summary

    “Is anyone going to Manhattan?” asks Peter, wandering by forlornly. He’s holding a laptop backpack that is still partially covered in webbing from when he'd stuck it to a wall somewhere. “I have a job interview in an hour.”

    Sam gives Steve a meaningful look.

    Steve sighs. “Hey, kid,” he says, turning to Peter. “I can take you.”

    Even with the mask on, Peter visibly perks up. “It's not too much trouble?”

    “I've got a nap scheduled at 4 p.m. and a sandwich at 6,” says Steve, “but I'll see if I can shift some things around.”
