    Summary

    "Well I'm stuck here," Bucky says, indicating his crutches. "And everyone else is either gone or busy. You could...if you could stay for a couple hours until my folks get back, I'll pay you for your time. I got an allowance. Ten bucks a week."

    Steve's jaw nearly drops onto the ground before he recovers. "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please, it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other houses lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind blows by, coating Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    "Goin' once, goin' twice..."

    Summary

    James hears what Steve tells him in fragments. All he can think of is Steve lying on a metal table with needles stabbing into him. The images bring James a great and terrible pain. He thinks to his own torture, yearning for Steve like a balm. He thinks of his hands, empty and grasping, snatching at the air like hungry birds pecking at the earth.
    “Bucky,” Steve sighs. “Are you listening? Please say something.”
    James remembers his friend: Steve standing valiantly in the center of a fistfight. Steve’s blue eyes smiling into his. Steve, outlined against the sky as they stood on the rooftop. The heavy warmth of his sleeping breath against his skin. A lingering promise:
    If you go, then I will go with you.

    Summary

    In the rough and tumble of the Lower East Side, the only constants in Steve's life are the solid black letters of the name on his wrist.

    Summary

    “Stop being such a rainy day, Hajime,” it whines, “that’s my job.”
    “Oh?” Another sip of coffee. “Are you some kind of rain god, then?”
    It heaves a heavy sigh and lays back, feet coming up to prop on nothing. “God is such a heavy word.” It bounces a foot in the air. “I prefer deity.”
    Hajime snorts. “You’re a vain little shit.”

    Summary

    “Is this the ear you can’t hear out of?” Bucky asks. Steve, bent over behind the counter, doesn’t acknowledge him one bit. Bucky cups his chocolate-sticky hand around that deaf ear and whispers, “Steve Rogers, I’ll love you ‘til the day I die.” A Stucky redux of "It's A Wonderful Life."

    Summary

    (The Mafia/ Bootleg AU that no one had written to my satisfaction, so I have to do it myself.)

    A multi-faceted battle is going on in the underground of the Big Apple. The Iron Family is stirring up trouble where trouble don't belong. The Hydra Gang is a developing cancer in the rise of Hitler. And the Brooklyn Boys just tryn' to get by in the midst of the depression.

    Out side all that, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers think they have found the love of their life (or as close as you can get in the homophobic society of 1934). Thing is, they don't know that one is a small time mob boss out for vengeance, and the other is a gang leader makin' profit off bathtub gin.

    Summary

    It starts in a boxcar and ends in one. Rick's got his family sitting around him, faces too skinny and firelight flickering in sunken eyes. The smell of cooking rabbit fills the air as Daryl turns the meat, and Shane tells jokes Rick's heard a thousand times.
    It's not perfect, far from it—but it's all they've got.
