    Summary

    Steve drags a hand through his hair before plucking at the front of his shirt and flapping it to get air moving against his skin. Bucky watches, transfixed, as he keeps getting flashing glimpses of Steve’s nipples. He flicks a guilty glance at Steve just in time to see Steve’s eyelids sliding down to cover his eyes. Bucky's stomach turns over at the thought that Steve might’ve caught him looking. He’s not sure whether to be relieved at not getting caught, or disappointed.

    One of these days, he’s going to mess up and cross a line with Steve. His hands curl into fists to stop himself from doing something incredibly stupid. And yet, he can’t stop waiting for just another glimpse.

    When Steve finally leaves off fanning himself and splays his hand on his stomach, Bucky takes a relieved breath, and allows himself one last—

    “See something you like?”

    Summary

    Maria Elena Popescu’s apartment building might be a faceless grey dump, but it’s her faceless grey dump, and she’s proud of it. It’s small – three floors, and three very poky flats to a floor, except for the bottom floor that was the entrance hall and her own quarters – but that just meant she knew everybody who lived here, and liked them. Nobody was allowed to come in here and make it worse, or disreputable, not even tall dark and good-looking foreigners who reacted with an appropriate amount of fear when Maria eyeballed them.

    Summary

    "Well, how are you feeling, what’re you thinking? Let’s get going, you know the debrief drill –”

    “Uh,” says Steve, who does not know anything of the sort. “I do?” The other man squints.

    “What do you mean, uh? You should,” he says severely, tapping at a tablet in his hand. Steve frowns, trying to remember, but as soon as he does a bright flare of pain goes off in his temples, flooding sharply though his head and not letting up until he’s stopped trying to think about what he should know.

    Something on the other side of his bed starts to beep, and the other man looks up from his tablet. “Hang on a sec, then,” he says slowly. “Maybe you shouldn’t. Who are you?”

    Summary

    The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

    Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.
