    Summary

    Or, the one where Convenience Store Manager Bucky helps Frequent Customer Sam out after a slushy spill and shenanigans ensue.

    EXCERPT:

    Bucky should have expected something like this to happen. He had seen Ty and Tandy over near the slushy machine earlier, but he didn’t put two and two together since the two usually hung out around the store during their shift when there was a lull in customers. No, he didn’t connect those dots until Sam came in alone around early evening, since he didn’t pick up the nephews on Wednesdays, walking over to that damned slushy machine to get a cherry slushy, only for the lever and faucet of the machine to fall off, the entirety of red slushy contents pouring straight onto Sam’s shirt, Sam saying, “Shit, sorry.”

    “We’re going on break,” Tandy and Ty said, the two who totally caused this and ruined this man’s shirt, running out to the back of the store, which meant Bucky was the only person who could help Sam out here.

    Summary

    A Hydra-connected arms dealer is ready to turn coat. Sam and Bucky go in to seal the deal. It goes exactly as well as everyone is expecting.

    Bucky gets this spy stuff. Sam doesn’t. Sam gets people. Bucky doesn’t. They’re both going to have to work on that if they want to get out of this unscathed. Or at all.

    Summary

    How Bucky got his pardon and how Sam gave up his shield; or, what happened on the way to the Flag Smashers.

    “Sam,” Wanda’s voice at his elbow was quiet but urgent, pulling lightly on the sleeve of his smoke-singed suit. “They’ve got the Soldier.”

    “What?” Sam immediately looked up and scanned the crowd around them. Squinting through the dizzying mess of flashing lights, craning his neck over the milling crowds, he finally caught a glimpse of that scraggly mop of dark brown hair near the edge of the perimeter, just under the harsh flood lights that had been hastily erected after emergency personnel arrived. Bucky was standing very still, hands behind his back, staring blankly into the shadowy wreckage of the Avengers compound while a short, heavyset police officer slapped cuffs onto his wrists.

    “Get Steve,” Sam told Wanda. And then he ran.

    Summary

    As they circle the lake, some of the low night noises resolve themselves into laughter, soft murmurs of conversation. They pass one couple with a picnic basket, another laying back in the grass and watching the stars.

    “Popular spot,” Bucky says.

    “It worked for me.” Ayo shrugs. “You should bring your friend up here.”

    He squints at her. “Steve? He’s like my brother, that’d be weird.”

    “No, the handsome one.”

    “Sam?” Bucky blinks at her. “What, no, that isn’t, we’re not--” He breaks off, not completely sure what he was about to say. Not like that, probably, or maybe not friends, which stings oddly when he thinks about it.

    (Or, five times Bucky didn't ask Sam out, and one time Sam beat him to it.)
