    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.

    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

    Steve Rogers, model citizen, may or may not have seen a man's bare naked ass in front of the vending machine.

    Summary

    Sam’s not used to this. He knows how a mind works. He knows how to make sure he never has to be anyone but the one saying goodbye. What is it about this Bucky fucking Barnes that made him slip?

     

     

     

    When Sam Wilson's called to help solve a series of crimes in the small town of Brentonwood, Indiana (pop: 4,736) he expects to do what he's done hundreds of times before: explore a new town, meet some new people and solve the case. What he gets when he meets Bucky Barnes is so much more than that.

    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

    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

    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

    "It’s cold. I just want to make sure you’re alright–“

    “I said, leave me alone.” His voice comes out like a growl. Steve doesn’t get to put a face to the gravely accent coming from the bare-footed man sitting on the curb.

    “Okay,” Steve resigns. He gets back in his car, and watches the unmoving figure grow smaller in his sideview mirror.

    "That's the thing about family. No matter how fucked up and dysfunctional they are, you still want to go to war for them. You'll do anything to see them happy and whole, even if they stab you in the back. You can't help but love them unconditionally."

    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.
