    Summary

    "You don't gotta hold my hand," Bucky says after a minute or two. "It's not like it hurts."

    "Sure it does, asshole," Sam tells him, but he knows it comes out almost fond, and his hand is warm, and Bucky apparently leaves it at that.

    When the artist goes over the edges of scar tissue, Bucky tightens his grip, and Sam doesn't say anything at all.

    Summary

    In all of his life - including not only the stuff people would expect, like storming the HYDRA factory alone or crashing the Valkyrie, but also being a kid and so sick he could literally hear his mother praying through tears a few feet over, and the days and nights it was him praying and her gasping for breath that eventually left her -

    In all that, through all that, this is the first time Steve's hands have actually shaken so badly he has to stop and sit and make himself calm down

    Summary

    It's funny how he can look back now and know he should have figured something was up, or off, or wrong, or at least fucking strange.

    Summary

    Or it's more like things shoved in a closet or stuck on a pile out of the way, actually. And maybe you're not even thinking about dealing with them later. Maybe you can't think why you'd have to. They just . . .go there. You need stuff out of the way, so you open the door and put something on a shelf. In a box. Put the box on the pile. Shift the pile into a corner.

    You don't pay attention as the pile gets too high or the closet gets too full and then everything - every single God-damn thing - falls on your head all at once.

    Summary

    It's one of those things, one of those times, where if Steve could be objective and detached he'd probably acknowledge right from the start that the progress (and sometimes he hates that word) is visible, is marked.

    That it's a marked change, and for the better, that when whatever it is goes wrong, when whatever it is hits the trigger line inside his mind, Bucky goes still and expressionless and then says, very quietly, "I need not to be here." And then, before Steve can make his head shift languages enough to form the thought, Bucky says, "No. You stay."
