    Summary

    Summary

    "My name is Wren Brook and I am- or was- a soldier. I was just starting my third tour when I got the worst message you could ever receive."

    It's easy to have your life turned upside down. It's fixing it that's harder. But what if every time things seem to look up, there's that one person who always turns up and messes it up all over again.

    Summary

    “That guy out there? Lovin’ him is the best part of being alive, Steve. We both know I can be just as stubborn, and maybe twice as oblivious as you. I wanted Clint so bad, for so long, but I was all turned around, and lying to myself, makin’ excuses as to how it was some crazy side effect of spending so much time together. But the truth was? I was scared. It was too big, so I tried like hell to hide from the truth, right up until I went and got blown up. Then it was total fuckin’ clarity time.”

    Back before Steve adopted Peter, or Tony walked into SHIELD Tattoo and upended Steve's world, Bucky almost died in Clint's arms. This is the story of what happened after.

    Takes place 5 ½ years before Deep in the Heart of Me. While reading that beast will provide a lot of context into the universe, I'm pretty sure this would still make sense solo.

    Summary

    When Dean was discharged from the army after getting wounded in an air strike, his life quickly turns to shit. No money, no home, and difficulty finding employment. He’s lucky to run into rich and handsome Michael, at least gaining him a nice boyfriend. Why Mike wants to be with a chain smoking, alcoholic, used up trainwreck like Dean, Dean will never understand. But hey, if it fits - it sits.

    There’s something off about their relationship though. Exactly how off slowly starts to become clear to Dean when he meets Nick, Michael’s estranged brother, who’s also a veteran soldier. Things start getting complicated. Dean doesn’t do complicated. Or at least, that’s what he tells himself…

    [This is a dirty, gritty story about two broken men on their decline into chaos and destruction. A story about how they discover that falling into the deep end isn’t all that bad when you have someone to hold onto.]

    Summary

    After the Battle of New York, Captain America becomes a world-wide celebrity. Steve Rogers, on the other hand, would much rather be left alone. He's fine, but... the constant PR obligations and life in Avengers Tower are getting him down. When Pepper Potts hounds him into attending the official opening ceremony of a new community garden and allotments built among the ruins of the Chitauri attack, Steve is expecting just one more round of hand-shaking and baby-kissing. What he is not expecting is for the community gardens to be run by a beautiful ex-soldier with a busted-up arm and a strange ability to see past all the Captain America bullshit.

    Bucky Barnes, the proud creator of the Ground Zero Community Gardens, is not expecting his allotments to become over-run by Avengers needing some time out from the responsibilities of everyday life, nor is he expecting for Captain America to have a green thumb. But behind the bland, all-American facade of Cap, Bucky manages to catch a few glimpses of the man who used to be Steve Rogers.

    A story about identity, recovery and vegetables.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes' life has hit a skid. After his high school sweetheart divorced him, his life is solidly lodged in a rut with few prospects and little motivation for change. After witnessing a murder at a local airport, he goes into hiding to avoid the murderer from shutting him up. Permanently. He finds himself hiding on Eden, a resort specializing in kink. And because the cosmos are out to laugh in his face, he soon discovers his ex-husband is running the joint. Because of course he is.

    Reconnecting is a rocky road when people are out to kill Bucky and his emotions are compromised by the sudden discovery of his kink side. What would his religious parents have to say about that? Nothing good.

    The Exit to Eden AU literally no one asked for, but I felt like writing anyway.

    Summary

    Keith is returning from deployment overseas, officially released from duty in the military. However, his first stop back in the states isn’t the place he expected to be - the funeral of his military partner Miguel McClain.

    There he meets Lance, the younger brother of the fallen soldier, along with the other grieving members of the McClain family. Unsure of the next steps in his life and unable to separate his military and civilian life, Keith looks to the one place he can even consider home - the family Miguel loved and left behind.

    Using group therapy, meeting new people, and becoming closer with the McClain family, Keith tries to put his life back together and live past the tragedy of losing his best friend. In turn, he grows a bond with Lance and realizes that maybe Miguel was right along - the two seemed made for each other.

    Summary

    Signing up for the army after Sam goes to Stanford, Dean was drafted to Afghanistan just under a year later. During his third deployment to the country, an operation goes wrong, with fatal consequences. Sam, away at Stanford, finds himself taken to the President of the university’s office where he learns about the news of his brother’s squad. In the first few weeks of his brother being back, Sam quickly realises that his brother might be fighting more demons that he’s prepared to discuss. Castiel works at the Gas ‘N’ Sip down the street from them. Getting to know him over various visits to the store, Sam invites Cas round to theirs, knowing that it would be good for his brother to talk to someone other than just him. Both a little lost but equally unwilling to admit it, do the answers to Dean and Cas’ own personal demons lie in each other?

    Summary

    James Buchanan Barnes est un vétéran de l'armée de terre américaine. En sauvant ses hommes d'une mort certaine au prix de son bras, il devient l'heureux (ou presque) récipiendaire de la Medal of Honor. C'est lors de sa cérémonie qu'il rencontre le fils du président, Steve Rogers... Surnommé Captain America par tout le peuple américain pour sa droiture, sa loyauté et son sens de l'honneur, en plus de ses missions de charité, Steve Rogers est, pour couronner le tout, quelqu'un de sympathique. De drôle. D'attentionné. Et surtout, d'hétéro. Et de fiancé.
    Alors, tomber amoureux de Steve Rogers, c'est un peu comme tomber amoureux du soleil : on finit par se brûler les ailes. Tomber amoureux de Steve Rogers, c'est comme de tomber dans un précipice sans fond. C'est comme de passer de statut de héros décoré à celui d'ennemi public n°1. C'est comme de voir sa fierté déjà misérable piétinée, réduite en miettes, exposée par dessus le marché à tout un cirque médiatique.
    Tomber amoureux de Steve Rogers, c'est définitivement la pire idée du siècle.
    Malheureusement, Bucky Barnes et les bonnes idées évoluent sur deux trajectoires strictement parallèles.

    Summary

    “Alright, punk, sit your ass down. I’m gonna tell you a story.” Bucky waited until Steve joined him on the couch and started, “Remember that time I made pancakes at 3 in the morning and I had to run to the store? Well, I didn’t tell you the whole thing.”

    Bucky just wanted for Tony and Steve to meet. He imagined numerous times how this could go, the two of the most important people in his live chatting a little, getting to know each other, preferably in a cozy hipster coffee that Tony would hate on a principle and Steve would love for the same reasons.
    You have to be careful what you wish for, because it might just happen. Just not the way you imagined.

    Summary

    When Steve's dad is diagnosed with cancer, Steve returns to his childhood home to support his mom -- a small town called Gold Cliff, Colorado. Ten years before he left Gold Cliff behind him, left his no-longer-best-friend Bucky Barnes behind him, with the intention of never seeing him ever again. But Bucky Barnes crash-lands back into his life nonetheless, long-haired and one-armed and haunted, keeping secrets from day one.

    Filled with self-loathing and millennial angst, they agree to a mutually beneficial sexual relationship to blow off steam.

    Steve should have known better than to think he could ever put Bucky Barnes behind him.

    Summary

    "I think we should break up."

    It's not what Steve wants to say, but... It's what he feels like he needs to. They're getting ready to head down completely different paths, and Steve has no idea where they'll end up at the end of them, or hell, if Bucky's even going to make it back from the army. The war's been getting worse in Afghanistan, terrorists getting more desperate as their hold on the Middle East loosens, and soldiers are coming home in pine boxes - or urns - as often as not now.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has issues. Mental health issues, and a whole lot of them, to be precise.
    Bucky is fucked up, and he knows that. His apartment looks like a dumping ground on most days, he can’t sleep through the night, sometimes he doesn’t shower for six days and doesn’t leave the house except to see his therapist once a week. Mostly, Bucky has no idea how the whole “talking about your problems” thing is supposed to help him, but sometimes his therapist has some really good ideas.
    Like getting a dog.
    Which is how Bucky meets Steve. Steve has blond hair and shoulders as broad as Bucky’s academic future if he wouldn’t suffer from depression and multiple mental disorders, and a waist as small as Bucky’s self esteem. Steve also has a yellowish dog with floppy ears called Sunshine. And sunshine makes its way into Bucky’s life with a bounce in its step.
