    Summary

    ‘I’m sorry, sir,’ he said, and Maria looked a little appeased, though now she was gesturing for him to get off stage. And then he smiled real big and wide and sincere and said, ‘Guess I’m just real fuckin’ tired of everyone treating me like an idiot. To answer your question, ain’t a lot I really miss. Polio was pretty fuckin’ awful, and so was the food, and the racism and homophobia and hatred so many folks had for one another for dumb-as-shit differences was so goddamn stupid -’

    Maria was suddenly on stage beside him, pulling his microphone away and grabbing his arm with a steel grip. Steve just leaned over to Nat’s mic with a shit-eating grin on his face and said, ‘Thank you so much for your time.’

    Steve's tired of the world treating him like he doesn't know a damn thing about the future. Bucky's tired of not knowing a damn thing about the past.

    They meet somewhere in the middle.

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier is a ghost.

    Something is haunting Steve not just in his dreams but in his apartment. Footsteps, voices, shadows - he comes to accept that the presence is Bucky. One possibility - his best friend is dead. Another - he was recaptured by Hydra and found a way to separate his consciousness from his body while in cryostasis, meaning that if Steve can find a way to communicate with him directly, Bucky could lead him to his body.

    Sam has a third theory. That Steve may need some professional help.

    Summary

    The man has eyes the color of the sky. Hands that are bloodied from battle but might be gentle if they touched him. A voice that drags the ghosts of memories through the soldier’s fractured mind, and he can’t die. The soldier was sent to kill him. Ordered it, assigned it. And he didn’t, so he can’t go back. Not without completing a mission. Not again. He needs to run, to hide. To find some secret corner of the world where they’ll never find him.

    If the man drowns, it will all be for nothing. The man has to live. Even if the soldier might be taken back and put permanently into the ice for disobeying.

    //

    On the banks of the Potomac River, Steve wakes up to watch the Winter Soldier's back as he walks away. He can't let him go. Hydra might find him, and if they don't, SHIELD will, and Steve doesn't trust them either. Not when Bucky is buried in there somewhere. They have to run.

    Summary

    “Steve’s been hit with a curse,” Natasha said. She said it calmly, so Bucky didn’t immediately go flying out of the apartment to tear apart the Tower in search of Steve. Then again, Natasha would probably be calm if New York City spontaneously burst into flames. He lowered the coffee pot and squinted at her.

    “Of course he has,” he said. He felt, abruptly, exhausted. “What is it?”

    “The witch kept ranting about sexual repression and archaic moral principles,” she continued blithely.

    “It’s not like you to prevaricate, Romanov.”

    Natasha pressed her lips together. For a moment, Bucky thought she might start laughing. “It might be easier just to show you.

    OR: Steve’s been hit with a rather telling curse.

    Summary

    “Crowley,” says Aziraphale, and that’s it. Just that, just Crowley’s name—and yet Crowley would do almost anything to hear him say it like that (like Aziraphale is happy, like Aziraphale is surprised by something Crowley has said or done or showed him and inordinately pleased by it) every single day.

    Aziraphale’s fingers slide up a bit further, and they make a delicate circle around Crowley’s wrist. Crowley has to resist the urge to purr. He’s a snake, not a fucking kitten.

    ***

    Aziraphale takes Crowley to dinner.

    Summary

    At the tender age of twenty, amidst a bottle of peach schnapps, fresh breakups, and the lingering fear of perpetual loneliness, best friends Steve and Bucky make a promise that if they’re unmarried and still single by the time they’re both thirty then they’ll marry each other.

    Fast forward ten years to Steve’s thirtieth birthday. Since Bucky joined the military and shipped out communication between the two has been sparse, and their promise is the last thing on Steve’s mind as he celebrates the big three-oh. That is, until Bucky makes an impromptu return and cashes in on that very promise with a proposal.

    Planning a wedding isn’t as easy as it looks, especially on a time crunch, with a limited budget, and oh yeah, when Steve’s childhood feelings for his friend start clawing their way back to the surface throughout the endeavor.

    Summary

    "Where am I? Where is this?" and he was in Brooklyn, he was on a beach, the train was shaking around him. He was in the plane, ice splintering up onto the windshield. He was in a tank, tubes trailing from his face, from his groin. Christ, he was cold. There was still ice on his fingers. He was in the Grand Canyon. He was in Times Square. This couldn't be Times Square. Where the hell was this? "Tell me! Where am I, who are you, where's—" —Bucky?

    Summary

    “You’re kind of a weird one, aren’t you?” 

    Bucky gasps, all mock-offense. “We’re rolling with the insults today, aren’t we?”

    Steve flushes again, shoulders tight. “Sorry. Just… Sorry.”

    Bucky’s expression softens, and he goes with his gut as he reaches a hand out, fingers grazing the back of Steve’s hand on the table. Steve’s skin is warm, just as Bucky thought it would be. “It’s okay. It’s actually kind of nice knowing you can match my level of asshole.”

    *

    Today, of all days, is the day Bucky is going to meet the love of his life. Imagine his surprise when it turns out to be Captain America.

    Summary

    Bucky should be happy. His secret is, apparently, safe. Apparently no one noticed. Apparently no one saw. And yet.
    “I practically fondled you in front of everyone and no one bats an eyelash. What’s up with that?”

    I.e.: Steve and Bucky now live together in the Avengers Tower. They have decided to keep their relationship a secret from their fellow Avengers- that is, until Bucky slips up and the Avengers act oblivious about it. Bucky recruits Steve in a game of ‘show, don’t tell” until the Avengers acknowledge what’s what.

    Summary

    “I can tell you really like your job,” Steve offered, with a smile. He gestured to the small toy soldier, and then to a replica of the first American flag. “Not everyone decorates their rooms quite this much.”

    Bucky shrugged. “Things make history seem more real. Otherwise, it’s just a story to these kids.”

    Steve looked at him for a moment, seemingly taking him in. Bucky resisted the urge to duck and hide, or turn twenty shades of red. “You’re one of the real ones, aren’t you?”

    Bucky gave him a confused look.

    Steve waved a hand, and tried again. “You really care about them. That they actually learn and not just memorize, right?”

    Bucky nodded slowly. “That’s my job, isn’t it?”

    Steve beamed at him. “Yeah, but not everyone does it the way you seem to.”
