    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    (“He was dragging him out of the river,” Natasha argues later.

    “Nat, be honest, he was going for the Full Monty.” Says Clint.

    “I’m pretty sure we interrupted him in the middle of giving ‘emergency CPR’,” Tony agrees, “Or the stage after emergency CPR. Emergency Dick? Is that a thing?”

    “That’s not a thing,” Natasha and Clint reply.)

    Summary

    It’s the way that Bucky smiles at Steve from across his desk. No, it’s the way that Bucky’s hand brushes Steve’s as they stand side by side in an elevator not crowded enough to justify their closeness. Or maybe it’s the whispered conversations every Saturday night, the way Bucky saves Steve’s number under a different name in his phone.

    No matter what it is, the truth is the same: Steve Rogers is in love with Bucky Barnes, a married man.

    Summary

    “I thought we agreed that that was creepy.”

    “No,” Bucky says slowly. “I asked you what you thought about people calling their boyfriends daddy, and you said you thought it was creepy, and then I asked you what the hell you’d done with my grey sweater after you did laundry, and we never talked about it again.”

    “Your memory’s amazing these days,” Steve mutters.

    Summary

    “I can tell by your reaction to my question that you want to go very badly,” Mr. Erskine says. “Why is that?”

    Steve takes a deep breath and says, “I want to serve. If all I’m good for is giving my time instead of my life, then so be it. I can find a way to live with that. But I can’t do nothing.”

    Mr. Erskine smiles, warm and honest, and leans back in his chair. “A very inspiring speech, Mr. Rogers,” he says.

    “Thanks. I practiced it in front of the mirror."

    An AU in which:
    - There is no Project Rebirth. Instead, Steve goes overseas as a USO volunteer.
    - Steve is given the serum by Zola.
    - Steve is turned into an assassin by Zola and the Soviets, and Bucky becomes one of the first Avengers.

    Non-canon-compliant but still follows the same World War II-centric timeline.
