    Summary

    Like his mother before him, Steve Rogers is a witch. Unlike Sarah, Steve is not a terribly good witch.

    Sarah had told him to lean into his strengths, and not long for something that he didn't have, but he can't help trying. She's gone—lost to a cancer she couldn't heal—and Steve sometimes feels like the only way he'll fill the ache in his chest is by trying to live up to her legacy.

    So he's gone and gotten himself a familiar.

    *

    In which Steve's familiar seems to like his hot neighbor a lot better than she likes him.

    Summary

    “Alien…aphrodisiac.” James blinks and takes a few deep breaths, absorbing the information to scratch his head over later. Steve’s the priority now. “At least tell me he didn’t leap into the path of the alien whatever.”

    The Widow laughs. It’s half for show, James knows, but he thinks he can see genuine amusement in her cool green eyes. Steve’s better at reading her, but Steve’s apparently busy rubbing one out in the bathroom.

    “Not this time,” she says. “It’s not a weapon. One of the scientists grabbed the first thing they could in a panic. Steve was the only one in the room with them and got a faceful of blue dust. The effects took a couple of hours to show.”

    “And the scientist who used it?”

    “Was trying to fuck a wall, last I saw.”

    James grimaces.

    “It’s not very dignified,” the Widow adds, noting his expression. “Like I said, either the serum’s handling the worst of it, or Steve’s real superpower is his moral compass.”

    Summary

    Mid-December, a man tries to kill Steve and fails.

    When it’s over, there’s a hole in Steve’s lungs and blood on his bed and a masked man with blank blue eyes pinned under his bulk. There’s a mind that breaks open for him and a throat that arches in silent submission, and there’s blood that tastes like nothing that’s ever touched Steve’s tongue, spring and winter in bursts of red.

    It’s been a long time since Steve wanted to keep a human—centuries since the nights spent stalking Sam through the shadows of dark alleys and decades since the day Peggy realized what he was and drew a gun on him.

    Steve runs his knuckles down his killer’s stubbled face, flushed with borrowed life as his flesh knits back together.

    He’s a sweet boy. There are holes in his mind, and they mold themselves swiftly, almost willingly in the shape of Steve. Someone was there before him, that much is clear, but it’s not the foggy haze of a vampire’s thrall. There’s an elegance to that, some subtlety, but this is like someone took an iron rod and tore large, messy grooves through the man’s brain.

    Summary

    After all, in a universe where Love was a physical thing, it was easy to see when someone was a little messed up. Love was an item you held close until you met someone to give it to.

    The Team shares their Love, all except Tony. What is he hiding?

    Can Steve and Bucky get their heads out of their asses?

    ((This is a one shot and in no way related to the other stories in these series.))
