    Summary

    He tries it the easy way, the first time, like the coward Steve's never believed he is.

    It's 1943, and Bucky's still waking clammy with night sweats, phantom restraints pinning him down and Zola's voice in his head. He's still talking big to cover how he jerks away whenever anyone puts a hand on him. He’s pretending he doesn't see the way Steve looks at him, the way they all look at him, like he's in danger of coming apart.

    Only this time – this time when they try to give him a discharge, he takes it. He crams what little he owns in his duffel and ships off for the states.

    Summary

    Yuri Plisetsky glares at him with all the righteousness five year olds possess, and says in heavily accented and clumsy English. “Be more gooder, stupid!”

    And then he storms out in a sweep of blond hair and blue and red lights from his Sketchers.

    (Or: in which Yuri Plisetsky is Victor Nikiforov's bratty five-year-old and nothing is the same.)

    Summary

    It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

    Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

    Bucky scowled and closed the door.

    AKA
    An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband.

    Summary

    For better or for worse (usually worse), Steve Rogers has been the most famous guy in the room for a while. And though newsreels have given way to YouTube, people's reactions haven't changed much in seventy-some years. Steve's become an expert at keeping his head down and getting on with his life.

    A head-on collision on a busy street sends books flying and sweeps Steve off his feet. The point of impact has a name: James. A charming mess of long hair, thick glasses, and a crooked, not-quite-smile. If he recognizes Steve, he chooses not to comment, placing him firmly in Steve's good graces.

    As far as Steve can tell, they might be Bogie and Bacall all over again, save for the group of idiots with selfie sticks who surround them. But for once, the request isn't for Steve.

    Which begs the question: if James is James, then who the hell is Bucky?

    Bucky moves into a new house and is immediately rubbed up the wrong way by his neighbor. But Bucky isn't exactly the easiest person to get on with and maybe things aren't completely what they appear to be.
