    Summary

    Post CATWS: Bucky finds himself wandering in a series of tunnels beneath New York City. He is lost, alone, and for the first time in what he believes to be his life, he is afraid. Hallucinations and memories plague him as he recovers from the battle above the Patomac and all he wants is to find something to anchor him in this new and terrifying world. Steve Rogers is a distant and painful piece of his past, present, and future and the Winter Soldier cannot bring himself to face that reality just yet. When his skills begin to fail him, he finds himself left with nothing but a desperate trust forged by the kindness of a stranger who is far more than ordinary... Just like everything else on this god-forsaken planet.

    Summary

    It’s wrong, everyone says. Wrong, wrong, wrong. Why would anyone choose that?

    That is not her brothers. Sure Stevie is small, only a few inches taller than her, but that’s because he’s been sick so often. And, alright, Bucky could be a bit of a dandy, always fussing about looking his best, but he ain’t no queen.

    So then why were they kissing like queers? It isn’t the first time neither. She’s seen first kisses, and she’s seen people that are going steady kiss, and she’s seen husbands and wives kiss.

    Bucky and Stevie kiss like husbands and wives kiss.
     

     

    A life is made up of memories, both the good and the bad. These are Rebecca Barnes' memories. This is her life.

    Summary

    Bucky came back from Afghanistan with PTSD and a metal arm. After years of therapy, he's finally regaining a sense of self and identity that was lost when he became a POW.

    Then aliens descend upon Manhattan and Bucky is thrown back to Europe during World War II. Because why have one reality-shattering event when you can have two? But the 1940s weren't meant to handle Bucky Barnes, and beyond the cardinal rule of time travel (you can't go back in time and kill Hitler), there's a few things he's having trouble not messing up. Like Captain America's epic romance with Peggy Carter or the whole damn timeline.

    The last thing he needs is to fall in love with Steve Rogers (although Howard Stark gaining proprietary rights to the iPhone around the same time he helped split the atom was a very close second).

    Summary

    “Greenburg’s dead…” Stiles said in a whisper. Derek didn’t answer, just stared up into the sky, trying to catch his breath. All he wanted was a steady job, to provide for his sisters. He never wanted to kill anybody.

    “Sir? We should get moving…” Stiles put his hand on Derek’s shoulder. His eyes were wide and frightened when Derek finally met them. “Please, Derek. Let’s get out of here.”

    Derek jerked Stiles into his arms. Stiles made a squeak as he squeezed too tightly. Derek couldn’t make himself care. He buried his face into Stiles neck, taking breath after haggard breath of that sweet, cinnamon scent. He wanted to bite, mark and claim and take his mate out of that awful place. Instead he ran his tongue along the length of his neck, relishing the pulse when he found it. Stiles whimpered slightly and rested his head on Derek’s shoulder.

    “You alright?” Derek asked. His fingers ran carefully over Stiles’ injured arm, trying to gauge the extent of the wound.

    “Yes,” Stiles’ breath was warm against him. “We should go…”

    Derek pushed his lips to his mate’s neck, trying to memorize the salty sweet taste. “You’re alright,” he said, his mind hazy.

    Summary

    The serum straightened Steve’s crooked back, healed his weak lungs, and brought new color to his vision, and sometimes Bucky wonders what else it could do. Maybe the secret of Steve’s desire for Bucky was imprinted on his genetic code, and like every other imperfection stamped there, Erskine’s formula wiped it out. It would explain why Steve no longer looks at him with quiet longing, and Bucky almost hopes that the experimentations of a mad scientist are to blame. Because the alternative is too painful to consider, that Steve simply stopped wanting Bucky of his own accord.

    Or: How Patrice Roy won her spot on the Avalanche roster and carried the team through seven seasons of the Blood Feud while alternately fighting and fucking Chris Osgood.

    No one started playing hockey to make friends.
