    Summary

    Tucked against a set of crumbling, stone steps was a tank made of metal and glass, filled to the brim with greenish water, distorted sunlight filtering through and casting strange shadows. Playing tricks on the eye. A trick was the only explanation for what Steve saw floating there. This figment of his childhood. This myth. This legend.

    Within the tank, the siren bared its teeth.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes turns himself in to SHIELD two years after dragging Captain America out of the Potomac River. He was deprogrammed in Wakanda and has been hunting down Hydra ever since, but he needs help if he wants to take proper revenge on his captors. He turns to his old enemies: SHIELD and the Avengers, but it'll take more than a few words to win their trust after the Winter Soldier brought SHIELD to its knees not long before. Now at SHIELD's mercy, the only thing that stands between Bucky and his revenge is the approval of Captain Rogers: a self-righteous asshole that Bucky barely knows.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Captain Steven Grant Rogers. Captain America. The First Avenger. Elite SHIELD agent. Strategist. Combat expert. No. 1 enemy of Hydra. Kill on sight.

    Bucky watched the bullet hit Brock Rumlow right between the eyes. He watched the skin break and the bullet disappear and he savored each expression that flitted across Rumlow’s face as his shock turned slack and the life faded from his body. Bucky felt blood flooding the inside of his clothes and as Rumlow fell backwards, so did he.

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier is NOT Bucky Barnes. They are completely two different people who just happen to very very similar. Bucky Barnes died on the mountains 70 odd years ago, and the asset grew up alongside the widow in the Red Room.
    That doesn't stop Steve from dropping the shield, or the asset from fishing him out of the ocean, or them falling in love anyways.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers’s patriotic eyebrows jump up. “Holy cow.”

    That was not what Tony would have expected from Captain America. “‘Holy cow’? Did the history books mess up? Was your family actually from India and not Ireland?”

    “Fuck off, Stark. I ain’t shitting on what comes out of your mouth, so you better leave my goddamn cows alone as well.”

    Tony doesn’t know whether to feel awestruck or betrayed. “You,” he says and points at Rogers, “are nothing like I expected.”

    “Sorry to be a fucking disappointment,” Rogers says with a scowl and pulls his ridiculous helmet on, covering the sleekly styled brown hair. It was astonishing how even Rogers’s golden hair had been false propaganda -- but of course the great America had wanted to present its figurehead as Aryan perfection in the time of eugenics. “Suit up, everyone. Let’s get this shit done.”

    Summary

    Steve Rogers and The Winter Soldier meet for the first time in 2014 during the canon divergence events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    It starts like this: this is how they fall in love.

    (C13: They’re still fighting, Iron Man and Captain America.

    Wanda feels it. They seem nice to each other, but Steve is still mad at Tony, and Tony is still mad at everything.

    She thinks that Steve has a right to be mad at Tony, because what he did was stupid, but staying mad this long is even more stupid, because they’re friends.

    She tells that to the Vision, who nods and says, “I agree. The Captain and Sir have gone through a lot of battles before, it would be a shame for this to split them apart.”

    “At least they’re not fighting over a book,” Wanda says.

    “Yes,” the Vision says, “that would be terrible. Tear-rible. Like the pun. Do you know what puns are? I’ve been doing some reading.”)
