    Summary

    The first time it happens, they’re in Wakanda.

    “You're bored,” Bucky murmurs, low. Hears how gravelly it comes out, exactly the smoke-filled tone he used to use to achieve a very particular purpose. “Wanna do something dumb?”

    “Like what?” Sam asks, flat. Bucky grins, just a little, sharp.

    “I can think of a few things,” he says, and steps closer, watches how Sam doesn't step away. They're in each other's space, and Bucky knows goddamn better than this, knows he put himself away in Bucharest for a reason, but fuck, he's tired and he's pissed off and he's reckless, and so is Sam, energy bouncing between them. “For instance,” Bucky says, waits a beat. “I'm pretty dumb,” and hears Sam's breathing speed up.

    Summary

    Academy fic. Jim is a genius. His instructors realize this, his classmates do as well, and they don't take too kindly to being shown up by the farmboy from Nowhere, Iowa.

    Cupcake is taking a walk through the campus late at night and finds him laying in the middle of the ground, curled up and beaten to a pulp. It's not as satisfying as he always thought it'd be.

    Hurt/Comfort, Kirk whump.

    Summary

    Before the news anchor could answer he continued, “And you wonder why I stalled at first at accepting the mantle of Captain America when Steve handed it over to me. You can barely accept me, a black man, representing your country. What would you do if this shield was handed over to a gay man? A trans man? A bi man? How about a woman instead? What if she was lesbian? What if she was Muslim and wore a hijab? What if they were non-binary?”

    They did not plan for this morning news interview to go this way, but Sam would be damned if he didn't speak up. Representation matters.

    Summary

    “You’re sending me on a two-man undercover,” Bucky says, helplessly, “staying in a vineyard retreat, alone, with Wilson.”

    “Pack your swim trunks,” Daisy adds, “apparently it’s got a hot tub.”

    Bucky looks at Sam. Sam looks back at Bucky. Sam’s arms are crossed over his chest, his forearms bare. Bucky carefully doesn’t look at Sam’s forearms, or the way his t-shirt is pulled tight over his shoulders, straining just a little at the seams. Bucky’s not looking at that at all. He makes eye contact, careful to keep his face neutral.

    Sam’s eyes are soft and dark. Maybe a little amused. He has very long eyelashes.

    Bucky swallows hard.

    “Great,” he says. “That’s just— great.”
