    Summary

    Steve and Bucky both missing out on spring break for separate yet similar reasons. As two of the only people left on campus it isn't that surprising that they cross paths. What is surprising is the fallout that occurs after only one simple interaction.

    Or the one where Bucky is a semi-homeless college student telling lies to cover his shame and Steve gets a fake ex-boyfriend and a reputation for heartless hookups.

    Summary

    James’ life was weird. He was born in a HYDRA lab, a clone of an assassin who was actually the brainwashed best friend of Captain America. He was rescued and raised by SHIELD. You might say he has some identity issues. He tried to have a normal life: he went to college, made friends, got a job, all while trying to honor the memory of Bucky Barnes, the man that he might have been, once. That all gets shot to hell when Captain Steve Rogers is discovered in the wreckage of the Valkyrie.

    Steve’s life was weird. He grew up skinny and sickly with his best friend by his side. When war came to his country, he wanted to fight, to protect people. He became a super-powered soldier, and a symbol of victory for his country. He fought against HYDRA and watched the love of his life fall to his death. He died and woke up in a new world, where nothing was the same. That is, until he runs into a young man that looks just like Bucky...

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes never imagined himself falling in love with anyone, especially his best friend’s girl. While he had harbored secret feelings for you over the last few years he had always told himself if it was meant to happen it would. You were one of his closest friends, and the thought of losing you because of his own feelings paralyzed him. He hadn’t planned on Steve building up the sudden courage to ask you out on a casual date. Even as your relationship with Steve progressed Bucky held out hope that you would realize Steve wasn’t the man for you. Of course his plans were shot to hell when Steve decided to surprise everyone and propose to you on your birthday. Had he missed his shot, or would he be willing to risk both of his closest friendships in hopes of winning your heart?

    Summary

    You tell yourself you could stop all this at any point, you just don't feel like stopping yet. Bucky is losing the battle with addiction and depression whilst trying to navigate his feelings about his best friend. Surrounding himself with equally damaged and dangerous people he falls further and further down the rabbit hole, and it can't be long until he hits the bottom.

    A/N based of an original work I posted on fictionpress.
    Pretty depressing so if you don't like angsty stuff, don't read.

    Summary

    It’s not that life isn’t good. The future—the present, as it stands—is great. The food is excellent. Messaging is instant. Movies are in 3D. Steve is only one medical miracle of many. Even the grime of New York City is nicer than the near-constant stink of the thirties. No, it’s not that the world is any worse.

    Steve was just lonely as hell.

    or, the one where steve is still captain america, bucky is a hot librarian, and they fall in love, anyway.

    Summary

    Bucky hates marshmallows. Steve loves marshmallows. Bucky hates that Steve loves marshmallows. Somehow, Steve and Bucky end up loving each other anyway.

    For Izzy, in honor of our having been friends for TWO YEARS and in response to this prompt: "This has been a shitty week and you just grabbed the last box of my favorite comfort food from the shelf, do you really wanna fight me right now?" Referencing an inside joke of sorts, and probably containing less marshmallows than this summary makes it seem.

    Though maybe not.

What was Shield hiding? And most importantly, who is Steve Rogers?

    Summary

    Steve’s spent an hour along Portobello Road before he sees the paparazzi on the left side of the street, trying to be inconspicuous by a street lamp. He crosses the street and ducks into the first store he sees, tucked behind a screaming red door and under a blue and white striped awning.

    He listens, feet planted in front of the door, shoulders tense, as he looks around the shop. Row upon row of books are on the shelves in front of him, the wood creaking under their weight. Behind the counter is a dark haired man wearing a jacket, elbow on the table, stubbled chin on one hand, gloved left hand flipping the pages of a book.

    No one follows Steve in.


    Or, the one where Captain America travels the world, learns how to be Steve Rogers again, and meets Bucky Barnes along the way.
    Also: the one where two old souls fall in love over young adult books, long distance calls, and texting at strange hours of the day.

    Summary

    The last thing Jeopardy producer Bucky Barnes needs is some asshole who passed the online test pretending to be Captain America and wasting his time. The last thing he expects is for the guy on the phone to turn out to be that Steve Rogers. There’s a popular expression that insists that stranger things have indeed happened, but Bucky’s pretty sure that this is the weirdest day of his life.

    In which Steve Rogers starts watching Jeopardy as a fun way to learn about the things he’s missed, gets selected through the online test, auditions for the show and surprises the hell out of everyone. Especially one James Buchanan Barnes.

    Summary

    When Steve first met Sergeant James Barnes during the New York invasion, he flipped Steve off for calling him a civilian, then roundhouse kicked an alien in the face.

    They haven't stopped seeing each other ever since, and Steve thought it was normal for him to latch onto the first person who befriended him after coming out of the ice.

    Nope, turns out he was just pining.

    Summary

    Steve is still adjusting to life in the 21st century. His life nowadays is mostly lonely. Though he appreciates her good intentions, he always rebuffs Natasha's efforts to set him up on a date; he simply isn't interested in pursuing anything romantic.

    At least, until Steve gets drunk on Asgardian liquor and a ridiculously handsome stranger at the bar catches his eye.

    Summary

    “Afraid I might kick your ass, big guy?”

     The idea is so incongruous that Steve lets out a loud, derisive snort before throwing a 'you gotta be kidding me' look at the man over his shoulder.
