    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a war veteran struggling with severe PTSD. Steve Rogers is his scrawny artist boyfriend, and somehow they're happy despite the bad lot that life keeps handing them. They're doing ok, until Bucky suddenly vanishes one day without a trace. When they find him, it's two years later and he's missing an arm and all his memories.

    All there's left to do is try to piece together what they once had, and what can still be.

    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

    "Steve didn’t mean to become friends with Tony; it just sort of happened. It seems like one day he was a faceless dealer at Extrema, the next he was getting drunk with a millionaire genius. He knows what caviar tastes like now (he doesn’t like it) and he’s seen the Strip skyline at night from 60 stories up in a penthouse (that he does like). Most importantly, he knows Tony."

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a disabled OEF/OIF veteran that's trying to find his place in the world. Turns out, he's not that different from Captain America, the Man Out of Time. Maybe, just maybe, Steve and Bucky's place is wherever they're together.

    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.

    What kind of idiot forgets that they're shipping out tomorrow? The kind that meets the most aggravating, fiery, talented, selfless asshole at the bus station. Good thing that asshole is patient, too, because recovery is hard.

    Summary

    “‘Sarge’ doesn’t break his rules for anyone, let alone the plethora of rich, married men that waltz into Red Room looking to bag a partner for the night, flashing their money like they own the joint - Bucky though? Well … when Mr. ("Call me Steve”) Rogers offers him five thousand dollars for one night, no strings attached, he honestly can’t resist, not with how he’s a walking wet dream. The only problem is that Bucky’s never been good at one night stands, and Steve’s married if the gold wedding band on his finger is anything to go by.“

    Summary

    For the longest time, Bucky had been alive, but he wasn't really living. After the accident that crushed his arm and his hope, he found a new purpose in the daughter he hadn't even known he had. But when he found himself financially (and emotionally) dependent on a partner that was moody at best and abusive at worst, Bucky started on a seemingly endless downward spiral. It would take a miracle, or maybe just a persistent blond artist, to put the pieces of his life back together.

    This plays in the same universe as "I can't stand myself" but it's not necessary to read that one to understand this one, although some of their backstory is explained in that one.

    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

    "I can't tell if it's some kind of brain damage or if you are just batcats head over heels for your apparently not so dead best friend turned super bad guy and this is how you are coping, but whatever it is..." Sam pauses and puts his hand on Steve's shoulder, taking a deep breath before going on, "Just make sure you don't lose your pretty over sized blonde head about it."

    or

    Sam is a bro, Steve is a dad, Bucky's a mess, aww, Clint noo..., Nat's bamf, and somehow they are all gonna have to get along and figure out how to live featuring motorcycle cops, HYDRA as a bad guy MC and you know, stuff and things.

    Summary

    An overzealous father who drove his daughter into the claws of Hydra during the final years of warfare. A girl with the ambition to exceed his expectations for her. A dream that would not quite fit into the times she was born into. A soldier to be turned into a killing machine. And an impossible, absurd attraction.

    But that was back then... today James Barnes calls himself "Bucky" again and the Winter Soldier is but a hated memory to him.

    And then there's she, same doll faced, ambitious girl he would have given his other arm for to forget. But how can that be if he killed her in 1951?

    Maybe Bucky can finally make his peace and find some sort of atonement. At least he hopes that's what this is all about. Because everything else would be impossible and absurd, still.

    Summary

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