    Summary

    Death was easy or so some said. All you needed was to want it bad enough. After nearly a hundred years in, with 70 or so of those as Hydra’s fearsome property, Bucky Barnes wasn’t sure anymore.

    (Or, Bucky drifts through life after the fall of Hydra only to get taken by a gentle (and surprising!) kidnapper of sorts.)

    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes is abducted by political activists, the circumstances are simple enough. Desperation breeds all sorts of terrible decisions, after all, and Bucky's captor is clearly woefully out of his depth. Maybe, just maybe, he can talk his way to freedom, but the more Bucky learns about the circumstances of his capture, the more complicated things seem to get. On the run and forced to trust the man who abducted him, Bucky comes to realize that kidnapping is the least of his worries.

    Summary

    Bucky casts around the field, the light rapidly fading as the storm clouds grow denser, swallowing up the weak winter sun. The spirits are here, he can feel them, their amorphous thoughts, panicked and trembling. They can feel his own fear, rising in the back of his throat, fuelling their own terror.
    Bucky reaches for the chain around his neck, fumbling for his amulets. His fingers close around the two pieces of silver, fine and bright as the scars on his arm.
    Please. Please keep me safe.

    Summary

    “Careful,” A deep sultry voice says, causing Steve’s face to heat up in embarrassment.

    “Uh, thanks.”

    Steve, still feeling quite embarrassed, straightens his posture and plucks up the courage to look up at the man who just saved him from face-planting on the sandstone paving.

    Wrong move.

    You see, Steve Rogers has an eye for aesthetics.

    It comes with the job. He’s an architect—he knows when he sees something beautiful, and he certainly knows how to appreciate them.

    So it’s really no wonder that the man in front of him is taking his breath away.

    “Oh,” Steve breathes out, suddenly frozen in his spot.

    The man, as it turns out, is gorgeous.

    or in which Steve Rogers is a 29 year-old architect who pretty much convinced himself that he doesn't have time for romance and is contented with his, according to Tony, 'very lonely and very much single' life. Well, that is, until he stumbles upon Bucky Barnes. Literally.

    Summary

    With one semester down and one to go, Bucky and Steve are officially dating, and Bucky keeps telling himself that that means he's all better. He's holding down a long term relationship. He's passing his classes. He's showered almost every day for the last month. He is officially 100% better. All he has to do now is get through winter break with his family. And then through the second semester. And then third year. And fourth year. Residency. Career. Retirement. Death.

    Steve, for his part, isn't sure what happened. Busy working through his own grief, he's blindsided by the emotional wreck of a man that returns to him at the start of the new semester. And it just keeps getting worse.

    Summary

    James knows he's destined to be alone. He's been locked up in a tower for his whole life, getting well-deserved punishments on a weekly basis. But when Steve literally climbs into his life, James is astonished to realize that perhaps his fate is not as empty and lonely as it once seemed.

    Summary

    In exchange for the protection of his family and the forgiving of all debts and mistakes made by his stepfather, Steve agrees to become the houseboy for the leader of a powerful company with questionable business practices and a penchant for illegal violence. Mentally preparing himself for a short and painful rest of his life, Steve is startled to find himself settling in, and even more startled to realize he's developing a powerful position of his own, changing from a meaningless kept boy into a player in James' dangerous game.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers should be having an awesome couple of days. First, he passed his sommelier exam. Then, he got hired to head up the wine cellar at his friend Tony Stark’s newest Downtown Brooklyn eatery, Iron. The head chef is his best friend from college, Sam Wilson, and the pastry chef is his other best friend, Peggy Carter...and his worst enemy and longtime hatecrush, Bucky Barnes, is the chief mixologist.

    It’s not that Steve hates Bucky. It’s just that Bucky is the worst. In that way where Steve wants to punch him or make out with him. Whichever comes first.

    Can love conquer all in this battle of wits, wines, and whiskies?

    Summary

    In retrospect, the moment it dawned on Bucky that he might be in love with his best friend wasn't really a big deal. In fact, as far as epiphanies went, this one was actually kind of underwhelming. Maybe Bucky had lived his whole life with the misconception that an epiphany was supposed to change him forever and doom him to a permanent state of revelation that would make him see clearly the pathway of his life.

    What a bunch of crap!

    It's like this; James Barnes went to war when he was 21 and came back when he was 24. He feels like he's left everything he had in the desert of Kandahar, but maybe there are things that you can discover all over again.

    Summary

    HYDRA may have been revealed and taken down in the span of a few hours, but the repercussions are far more extensive. Steve Rogers, now ex-SHIELD agent, expects to be feeling them in his life for years. What he didn't expect was for them to reach into him and change the most fundamental thing he thought he knew about himself - that he doesn't have a soulmate.

    Summary

    The sound of hoofbeats pulled Steve's head around and he froze.

    A chestnut centaur, tail so long it would have brushed the ground if it wasn't flagged in challenge, was galloping through the fighting. He was carrying a human and a dryad on his back, cradling a tiny sprite in one arm, and holding a wicked looking metal spike in his other hand. A chimera lunged for him, and he reared, showing no hesitation as he smashed it with one front hoof, then stabbed down with the spike, sending it skittering back.

    Steve broke out of his trance and flung the shield. It smashed into the chimera, flattening it, and the centaur bolted for the safety of the barricades, his passengers clinging tightly.

    Another centaur. There was another centaur in New York. He'd thought he was the only one.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers crosses the Atlantic rounding off at about ninety-five pounds of pure adrenaline, which is precisely the opposite of what Bucky Barnes ever wanted for him.

    Steve's story goes forwards. Bucky's story goes backwards. Perhaps they'll find a way to meet each other halfway.

    OR: If anyone had the fucking courtesy to ask Bucky Barnes what he thought of all this.

    Summary

    Over eighty years have passed since the Disaster that ended civilization and covered the world in a permanent layer of snow and ice. Humanity survived, if only barely, and have since then managed to recover a little of what it lost, building settlements and rediscovering technology to help them in their struggle. Every settlement relies on technology for their survival and the Engineers are the ones tasked with maintaining and building it, but despite their importance the Engineers are a dying breed.

    Jake and his sister live under constant threat of being kidnapped or enslaved for the skills they possess, so he has learned to be wary of strangers — Raiders in particular, who murder and steal without remorse. But that changes when he meets a Raider he can't quite bring himself to hate. Cougar is different, and causes a myriad of conflicting emotions that Jake would rather not feel to being with.

    But when it turns out that Cougar might be able to lead Jake to the key to humanity's continued survival he decides to embark on the biggest adventure of his life, trust issues be damned. It soon becomes obvious that it won't be an easy journey, for more than one reason.
