    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    Summary

    Sam knows a thing or two about that. About fighting to do right, fighting to fight, fighting to get the body you want so you can do the things you feel you were meant to do. About losing what you love in the span of a single moment. About wondering if it was all worth it.

    Steve’s just some stranger Sam met on his morning run. Sam knows how to treat a stranger.

    Summary

    Teddy’s hand was back on Billy’s leg, and slowly working its way up his thigh. Teddy shifted a little where he sat, but the expression on his face was so totally innocent that Billy almost believed it. Teddy moistened his lips and his gaze flickered down to Billy’s mouth for a second before he answered. “Aren’t you veering into lit-crit just a tad?” he asked, one eyebrow up.

    “It’s – uh-“ Teddy’s hand had reached Billy’s hip, and his fingertips pressed gently into the curve of his ass. “It is a literary work,” Billy pointed out, fighting to keep from grinning. If this was how Teddy was going to play it, Billy wasn’t going to be the one to crack first.

    (Part of Profs!AU, but there is zero background required other than to note that Billy and Teddy are history professors.)

    Summary

    “Whoa, whoa,” a low voice cried. The horse snorted, and Billy heard the soft thud of hooves hitting the earth alarmingly close to where he was standing. It was so close, he could feel the muffled reverberations in the packed earth. Then, “Oh my God, are you okay?”

    No, he wanted to shout. He was trembling all over, knees actually shaking. Billy slowly dropped his arm and dared to blink open his eyes. He looked up—and up—and up—until he met those blue eyes, just as open and bright as the whole damned Big Sky country in a face that was, oh God yes, really incredibly handsome. The sharp words dried on his tongue; the fear drained away. He could actually feel his brain derail. Holy crap, that was one hot cowboy. “Um,” Billy said stupidly. “I. Yeah. I think…yeah. Hi.”

    “I am so sorry,” Hot Cowboy said. “I am so, so unbelievably sorry.”

    “No, hey, it’s fine,” Billy quickly assured him. “No harm done. Um. Nice horse.”

    Nice horse? He fought the urge to cover his face with his hands.
