    Summary

    Bucky is a jaded millennial with a lot on his plate.

    There's a dead guy in a museum who is definitely his doppelganger. He’s plagued by nightmares that could make a grown man weep, hates the cold more than anything, and if he doesn’t phone his sister at least once a week, she calls his friends to ask after him. To top it all off, lucky in love is just not a term used to describe him.

    Amnesiac, though? That’s apt.

    Or the one where Bucky is a journalist missing the first thirty years of his life. Captain America is straight up in love with his dead doppelganger. And the US government has been infiltrated by a secret organization hell bent on world domination.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes gets rid of both his boyfriend and his well-paid lawyer job in the span of a week -- and also wins an inn in a raffle he entered while drunk. He decides to simply roll with the bizarre situation, and leaves New York to visit the small town of Pine Rock, Massachusetts, figuring that maybe he can fix-and-flip the old house and get some space from the shitshow that his life has become.

    It's not his fault if he ends up charmed by both the town and the house. And it's definitely not his fault if he falls head over heels for the lovely, plaid-wearing carpenter who's helping him out.

    Summary

    In the MCU, instead of picking up a biography of Alexander Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda picks up a biography of Steve Rogers. This changes things. While the world goes insane for the musical, Steve and the man who believes himself to be Bucky Barnes find their own ways to take control of their narratives.

    So here's the real question: How does a half-dead orphan born in the middle of a forgotten spot in the tenements of New York without a father and raised by a single mother grow up to be the first and only super soldier?

    Summary

    Bucky casts around the field, the light rapidly fading as the storm clouds grow denser, swallowing up the weak winter sun. The spirits are here, he can feel them, their amorphous thoughts, panicked and trembling. They can feel his own fear, rising in the back of his throat, fuelling their own terror.
    Bucky reaches for the chain around his neck, fumbling for his amulets. His fingers close around the two pieces of silver, fine and bright as the scars on his arm.
    Please. Please keep me safe.

    Summary

    It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in want of a good fortune must be in want of a wife. Yet for Steven Rogers, painter of miniatures, it is not the company of ladies, but the acquaintance of Captain James Buchanan Barnes, Royal Navy, that captivates his imagination.
