    Summary

    There are three things Bucky Barnes knows are true: war is hell, sugar is sweet, and Steve Rogers is an asshole.

    When Bucky Barnes returns from war broken, jaded, and missing an arm, he doesn’t expect to find a new home in the back of his very own food truck. He finds a kickass partner in Natasha Romanov that pairs nicely with her human disaster of a boyfriend, Clint Barton. Life is looking up.

    Until he meets Steve Rogers.

    Summary

    Bucky looks like he’s had a difficult month, what with the eviction notice and all, but that’s not the reason Steve gives for allowing him to stay on his couch.

     

    “You have somewhere to go?” Steve questioned, crossing his arms and attempting to look casual, not like he was worried for Bucky. He stepped into the apartment, ignoring how bare it was.

     

    Bucky paused and gave him an exasperated look. “I’m not completely hopeless.”

     

    A fic spanning from mid-November to early-February.

    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary

    Steve's holding Bucky's drink out to him and he's looking at Bucky in that way he does. It makes Bucky want to cover his face. It makes him want to peek inside of himself and see if he can actually spot the butterflies.

    "Here you go," Steve says. "Extra hot, so be careful, 'kay?"

    "Okay, thanks..." Bucky says. And then he has to swallow again, and his throat feels awfully tight but he practiced this last night and he can do this. He can. He opens his mouth again and adds, "Steve."

    --

    Every morning Bucky walks to a nearby coffee shop as a kind of exposure therapy. He isn't going there for the coffee, and he's not actually sure he's going there for the therapy anymore, but he's definitely going there for Steve Rogers' smile.
