  1. Summary

    If Mommy was away for work, then Morgan’s Grampa Steve came over to stay with her. He’d tuck her in, let her give Mommy a kiss on video chat, then hand her the picture of Daddy for his kiss. Once Daddy’s picture was back on the bookshelf, Grampa Steve would turn off the bedside lamp so that Miss Friday could cover the ceiling with stars, and ask Morgan what story she wanted to hear.

    “Captain Steve, Grampa! Tell me Captain Steve!”

    Grampa Steve sometimes read to her from books and other times watched a movie with her, but her favorite by far was when he told her Captain Steve’s Adventures Through the Multiverse.

    Summary

    SHIELD never find Captain America.

    But one spring, the Valkyrie melts anyway, and Steve Rogers wakes up in the ice, alone.

    ———————————

    He tried to move – and it burned. There was fire wrapping around his body, dragging cold tongues of pain across every inch of him. There was nothing but the screeching pain and the blackness and the silence -

    He breathed, and choked, because his lungs were full of ice.

    Water trickled delicately from his nose, dribbled over shrivelled lips. He jerked reflexively, throat cracking free from frost. He tried to gulp, tried to swallow, tried to snatch at air.

    Summary

    Captain America is a national icon. A picture in a history textbook; a story on the lips of old men.

    Steve Rogers, on the other hand, is a wreck.

    Summary

    How Bucky Barnes accidently became an Avenger and married Steve Rogers. Or some shit like that.

    (Coincidentally, or not, the summary was also the working title.)

    ETA: Complete at chapter 17. Chapter 18 is just a note.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Steve is a pun-slinging asshole and Bucky is SO done with him.

    ...Except the part where they might have accidentally gotten married. Twice. No, wait: the first time was deliberate.

    Summary

    As he turns to leave he hears Tony calling after him, and he ignores it, uncomfortable with—well. With Tony. Not because of what he’d been saying, but because he liked it. Because something about knowing that Tony notices him stirred something inside Steve.

    But Tony’s with Pepper.

    And that’s.

    That’s fine.
