    Summary

    “I’m not so desperate that I’m sinking to that level yet.”
     
    “What? Resorting to exploiting your position or to downloading a dating app?” Sharon laughs at the exasperated look on his face. 

    “Either.”

    “Well, they do say dating is hard as a celebrity, and that’s certainly what you are now, Cap.” 

    “Yeah? You got any suggestions for this celebrity?”

    She thinks on it for a moment, drinks some of her wine. She’s probably got a few people who could be an option for Sam, actually. “I think you’ve come to the right person,” she tells him, sly smile on her face. “It was previously my job to get people the things they wanted, and I was the best in the business.”


    Five times others try to set Sam up on a date (and realize something about his relationship status that he hasn't) plus one time Sam takes matters into his own hands (well, with a little help from Bucky).

    Summary

    Steve was never good at picking his battles; Bucky was always good at keeping him safe anyway. But as the war comes around, the rythm between them and around them changes: new faces, new places, new fights. But the two of them, that's the one constant.

    This is the second part of this series, picking up where part one left off, and this time following Steve and Bucky throughout World War II, as they grow individually, with each other, and with the old and new people in their lives.

    Just like before, this part is fully written, will update once a week, and it will include a lot of self-indulgence and just as much in-depth looks into the characters and happenings as part one (hopefully) provided. Only this time, they go through the war.

    Summary

    Maybe whether you’ve picked the wrong side depends on where you’re standing—but if you can’t tell who the sucker at the poker table is: it’s you.

    Summary

    The first time it happens, they’re in Wakanda.

    “You're bored,” Bucky murmurs, low. Hears how gravelly it comes out, exactly the smoke-filled tone he used to use to achieve a very particular purpose. “Wanna do something dumb?”

    “Like what?” Sam asks, flat. Bucky grins, just a little, sharp.

    “I can think of a few things,” he says, and steps closer, watches how Sam doesn't step away. They're in each other's space, and Bucky knows goddamn better than this, knows he put himself away in Bucharest for a reason, but fuck, he's tired and he's pissed off and he's reckless, and so is Sam, energy bouncing between them. “For instance,” Bucky says, waits a beat. “I'm pretty dumb,” and hears Sam's breathing speed up.

    Summary

    Two hours in and Sam is on his third beer, his paper plate is full of crusts, and they have yet to start playing the game.

    Across the coffee table Bucky stares down at his character creation sheet, gnawing on the back of his pen, his face scrunched in concentration, and that’s when it hits Sam: James Buchanan Barnes, Captain America’s right hand man, Howling Commando, Winter Soldier, White Wolf, bane of Hydra and steering wheels everywhere, is a capital N nerd.

    or

    Sam and Bucky play a board game. And maybe fall a little bit (more) in love.
