    Summary

    A troubled city-style lumberjack. Sunshine personified in a man. An accidental phone swap. A serendipitous meet-up. Bucky lets out a small scoff. This isn’t the romcom that one looks for, not usually. It is, however, the one that found Steve and Bucky.

    Summary

    Kindergarten teacher Steve Rogers is staring down the barrel of the last two weeks on earth with nothing to show for his life but a failed marriage, a broken family, and a bucket list of wishes he never thought to make true.

    Hermitic Bucky Barnes lives in the same building. In fact, he can't remember the last time he left it for longer than it takes to walk his service dog Luigi around the block. The world will end without his having seen it.

    When the apocalypse knocks down their doors, they have nothing but time, and each other, to lose.

    (~an AU based on Seeking a Friend for the End of the World for Stark Tower’s movie challenge~)

    Summary

    "A shave, a minor haircut, several weeks of consistent sleep with the help of some of Banner’s sedatives, and he was feeling more like good old Bucky than he had in almost seventy years. Something was still different though, and a long hour studying his face in the mirror, finding every new line, the touches of fading hair at his temples, the small scars from his goggles and mask, had shown him that there was no going back to the cocksure twenty-something who had chased skirts as if his life depended on it.

    Might as well make the best of what was left."

    “Whenever I’m in town.”

    “How often is that?”

    Summary

    “Let me get this straight,” Tony began, eying the man across the counter. “Your name is actually Bucky?”

    Caught between borderline confusion and apprehension, he nodded.

    “You’re joking.” He could have dropped the marker, but there was a line growing behind him and there was no time for fumbling. The whole point of volunteering to help was to make sure business ran smoothly, not slower.

    Granted, it wasn’t every day that genius-playboy-billionaire-philanthropist Tony Stark was your barista.

    Summary

    “I hate this party.”

    “I’m sure the host would love to hear that,” the guy, who’d introduced himself as Tony, told him, his face lighting up with a smirk.

    The last thing Bucky wants to do is attend a party, where people will stare and whisper. Of course, Sam drags him along, and then Bucky embarrasses himself in front of the host, who’s a military supplier. But he meets another soldier, and now he might have a new friend.

    If only he could handle a bit of flirting...

    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

    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 great ideas.
    Like getting a dog.
    Which is how Bucky meets Steve. Steve has blond hair and shoulders as broad as Bucky’s 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

    Me to Kat: I really want a fic where Steve and Bucky date while Steve is smol, then they break up, and then reconnect when Steve is big, but Bucky doesn't know he's big, and Steve loves that because he's 100% over people liking him for his new looks.

    Kat: And you're not writing this why?

    Me: *grumble.* fine.
