    Summary

    Steve has no plan. Not because he hadn't tried to make one. He'd tried to make lots of plans. Plan, adapt, plan again, tried to think of every contingency.

    And then he'd thrown them away, because there wasn't much point. What could you plan for? He couldn't guess the possible contingencies, the situations, the potentials. And he sure as sure hadn't figured on what's happened now, on coming back to his place and finding Bucky here. He hadn't even hoped for that.

    He hadn't realized he could.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Whenever I need to revisit what it is like, what is needed to work oneself out of trauma, this is the go-to stuff. Never read a better description/handling of C-PTSD.

    Summary

    And maybe, maybe someday Bucky will have to tell Natalia exactly how fucking glad he is none of her attempts to set Steve up worked, and how it has nothing to do with jealousy and everything to do with how sex, sex that works, makes Steve's walls drop like fucking water.

    And how it's hard to tell what's worse, because if you know what you're looking at you know how easy it would be to fuck him up and that makes him such an easy fucking target - but if you don't, you might just do it by accident anyway.

    PTSD. Dissociation. BAD. Steve throwing a lifeline, Bucky catching it, barely. This is in the top three of all the fics in this verse I've read so far. Damn.

    Summary

    Steve'd thought about it for a minute. You're saying Bucky had the equivalent of multiple abusive childhoods, one after the other.

    Sam rubbed his forehead. Pretty much. And that shit leaves a lot of marks - I mean, it literally shapes the brain. He might remember when you were kids? Sam grimaced. But the other stuff might basically be mapped in deeper, because it happened so many times over. So much more.

    Carved in, Steve said, and Sam'd winced.

    He's thought about that a lot, since then.

    Steve - unconditionally. Bucky - yielding. Tentatively. Incrementally. Finally.
