    Summary

    When Barnes stumbles into a small town in Maine at summer's end, he's been running a long time and doesn't expect to stay. But as weeks pass, he starts wondering whether all this time he hasn't been running away from, but towards something - the kindness of strangers, quiet fields, and a curious, yellow-eyed goshawk.

    Summary

    Bucky was different now. He thought his Grumpy Cat t-shirt was pretty indicative of the changes, but Steve didn’t get it (even though he tried really hard). He couldn’t fault Steve for trying to be Stevie, or for getting frustrated when Bucky shut down or listened to Nine Inch Nails way too loud. But the truth of the matter was, no matter how many nostalgic candy bracelets Steve tied around Bucky’s wrist, James Buchanan Barnes was never coming back. Steve refused to give up though, and Bucky had always been a sucker for that particular pair of sappy blue eyes attached to one very persuasive punk...so, against his better judgement, he let Steve back in.

    But when the shit inevitably hit the fan, and Steve had to witness Sergeant Barnes' dramatic return, Bucky knew he'd fucked up. Because there were four things that every version of Bucky Barnes did over and over and over. He should put them on a goddamn refrigerator magnet; you know, as a warning to anyone who thought hanging out with Bucky was a stellar idea.
    THINGS BUCKY DOES BEST:
    1. Bucky gets captured 2. Bucky gets people killed 3. Bucky fucks shit up. 4. Bucky makes Steve fall apart.

    Some things never change.

    Summary

    It’s the quality that gets him first. The profile photo looks like it's been taken with a semi-professional camera: it's sharp and remarkably unposed compared to most people on Tinder. The guy in the photo is the size of a fucking fridge but with Marilyn Monroe’s waistline, accentuated by the way he’s standing half-twisted towards the camera.

    He’s also in the process of getting arrested.

    Steve, 28, it says under the photo. New York City. Some say I have an arresting personality. This photo is from my good side. The other has a shiner.

    Summary

    Like many other war veterans, Bucky Barnes is alone. He doesn't talk to his family, he has no friends and his only human interactions are with his cleaning crew from Avengers Tower. Plagued by nightmares and pain, he lives each day in isolation. Until the Avengers bring their fight at home and Bucky gets to meet the famous Captain America. To his surprise, both their lives change forever after that.

    Or: the janitor listening to music and ignoring the battle around him AU that no one asked for.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a dancer down on his luck. With an old injury in danger of flaring up at any moment, and a stalled career, he just wants his life back on track. Years of icing his feet, counting calories, the rap of a switch on the back of his calves, and he still has something to prove. At least compared to his best friend. Then again, Bucky’s been chasing Steve's heels since they were kids.

    Steve is the top principal in their company, and the greatest dancer to come out of America in the last ten years. It's no wonder he has his share of admirers. For years Steve’s fans have respected the boundary between personal and public. It was only a matter of time until someone stepped over the line.

    Or the one where dancers all along the California coast are dying in suspicious circumstances. The only connection between all of them: Steve. Meanwhile, Bucky fights tooth and nail for a lead role in Peggy’s new ballet. And he’s willing to do anything to have it.
