    Summary

    It’s no less than he deserves, but it doesn’t make it any easier, every time he looks in a mirror and sees the Asset staring back.

    When Steve turns him around, he shakes, afraid for a brief, bright moment that none of it will have made any difference; that he will look for humanity and still find a monster in return. But Steve stands by him and he is reminded that Steve is brave every day. So for him, Bucky can be brave too; he thinks, he will never earn any grace by being a coward.

    Bucky looks up and meets his own eyes.

    A story of how Bucky Barnes learns to love himself again and how Steve shows him the way.

    Summary

    Bucky is eighteen, not stupid, so he shakes his head.

    “No thanks, fella,” he says.

    “I didn’t know you smoked,” the man says.

    It’s such a funny thing to say that Bucky pauses, frowning. In between his fingers is the thin white cylinder, its ends neatly trimmed.

    “You don’t know me,” he says.

    “Maybe,” the man says. His voice is deep in a way that Bucky can’t catch, but can swallow. It rattles into him, a tenor so low it makes his jaw ache, warms him in the chilled night air. “I thought I did, once.”

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is in a bit of a conundrum.

    For example, on the one hand, he’s the former extremely polished, brutally efficient, and impressively ruthless brainwashed weapon of mass murder for the secret Nazi arm of the United States government.

    On the other hand, he has an uncontrollable crush on the cute blond wedding planner who lives next door.

    What do you do when HYDRA agents keep climbing through your window and the Avengers can’t seem to leave you the fuck alone? Volunteer to help with wedding planning, he guesses.

    This won’t be difficult to balance at all.

    Summary

    "A-ha!" He shouts, springing up and pointing. It scares the hell out of me. I've seen him kill a dog with less effort. (He said the dog was were; I think it was just excited.) 
    - From "Carry On" By Rainbow Rowell

    What if the dog actually was were? And it bit Simon?
