    Summary

    Bucky tries to get Steve to take a vacation. They haven't had a vacation since 1932 - what's there to lose?

    -

    “Ms Weller wasn’t angry about them apples, was she Stevie?”

    Steve snorted. “She was, at first.” He kept the tone light, jokey; the whole thing a little laughable, to them both. Bucky respected it. He couldn’t stand it when Steve was dejected about things anymore. “She sure was angrier when she saw us together.”

    Summary

    Steve Rogers learns how to stop running from what he wants.

    Bucky wakes him well before dawn. Steve rises slowly, unwilling to disturb the morning quiet, and Bucky hands him a bowl of hot porridge with a fried egg laid over the top of it, the yolk as yellow as daffodils when he breaks it with his spoon.

    Summary

    A long time ago, in the kingdom of Leoman, two boys named Steve and Bucky lived under the watchful eye of Steve's mother, Sarah. Raised to be fair and kind, brave and true, the two were family in all but blood. Yet their idyllic existence was to be short-lived, and when tragedy struck, the boys were torn apart. One was taken into the home of a strange man with stranger children, while the other was forced to bear the weight of a crown he did not ask for.

    As the years went on, Steve Rogers forgot the boy he'd known so well. He grew into a fine young man; fair and kind, brave and true. So, when he met a stranger in the woods - someone who needed his help - what other choice did he have?

    Summary

    “What are you doing here?” Bucky demands, and cocks the gun. The click is sharp. “I’m armed,” he says, pitching his voice to be heard over the ever-constant rumbling, and repeats it in Russian in the off-chance it’s another stupid kid from town.

    The hand twitches on the banister. The fingers tighten momentarily on the wood, knuckles white and then pink again. “I just came in to get out of the wind,” the voice says.

    That voice. Seized by a sudden, horrible hope that’s crushed immediately by the hard certainty of please, please and his fingers red against the earth, Bucky nearly drops the gun. He adjusts his grip, swallows. “Put your hands up,” he orders, “and stand where I can see you.”
