    Summary

    The beginnings of a plan took shape in Steve’s mind, as clear and simple as a tactical frontal assault. He’d prove to Bucky that this was it, he was staying: Steve was retired from the fighting game, Steve wasn’t going to let anything keep pulling them apart. Maybe then when Steve finally told him he loved him, Bucky would believe him.

    All things considered, Steve thought he’d handled the whole Thanos killing half the universe thing and the ensuing bitter, desperate quest to defeat him pretty well. Sacrificing his super soldier serum to use one of the Infinity Stones wasn't a problem either, not when it meant getting back the half of the universe they'd lost, and especially not when it meant getting Bucky back. But retirement and finally confessing his feelings for Bucky? Those were proving to be more challenging.

    Summary

    All Steve's ever wanted was to help people. And ever since they fished him out of the ice, that's what he's been doing. In fact, that's all he's been doing. In a world that he doesn't recognize anymore, it's easier to buy himself in his work than to face up to the ghosts of his past. Maybe avoidance isn't the healthiest strategy, but it's all he's got.

    All Bucky wants is to keep his city safe without some big, blonde idiot trampling all over his plans. Ever since the Avengers rose to fame and SHIELD moved in, that simple task's been getting harder and harder, and he's about at the end of his rope with it all.

    Neither of them have ever been especially good at compromise.

    Summary

    He remembered what happy felt like, James Barnes did. He remembered how it would bubble in your soul, like sunshine came from inside of your skin. He remembered knowing even then that it was too good to last.

    As he slid his Last Chance Black Cherry Pie into the oven, he glanced quickly at the calendar. It had been ten years since he remembered that magic. Ten years of living off the generosity of others, living in his body that didn’t work right, with a soul that felt scratchy. A decade that had begun with such promises delivered by a silver-tongued man who had promised to put him back together after years wandering in the desert…

    &&&&&

    Steve and Bucky were it for each other, until life happened. Now, nearly 20 years later, they meet again. Bucky's boyfriend is an abusive jagweed, however, so Steve has some work to do.

    Love, however, might be complicated, but it always wins.

    &&&&&

    If you've seen Waitress, this is an AU of it. If you haven't, doesn't matter, I promise.
