    Summary

    (Notice that this fic is on pause until I get my life together!!!)
    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 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

    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

    Sam hissed and shouted and brought their wrist in close to their chest, doubled over where they sat cross-legged in bed, bent in half so their forehead rested against the covers. It wasn’t comfortable, but that was okay. They needed to feel something else other than that maddening frustration for a goddamned second before they lost their veritable shit.

    Why the fuck couldn’t they have one good day, huh?

    Summary

    Sam’s feet barely touched the ground as they ran. Their pace was brutal, but they kept pushing past the point of being uncomfortable, past the point of feeling the strain, the twist, the stretch, the buildup, the stress. Steadily harder, pushing faster, not even feeling the flight over concrete anymore.

    Summary

    Sometimes, when you're feeling unsteady, it's okay to take somebody's offer of a hand up. Bucky and Steve are homeless veterans, Sam is a cinnamon roll, too good for this world. This story is rated M, primarily for language and the hint of a relationship between Bucky and Steve in the future.

    Summary

    “Do you have anywhere to be?” T’Challa asked on their way out of the room. He spared a wave for the professor, who was still crowded by two or three other students, but nevertheless managed to catch T’Challa’s eye before they left.

    Steve had never noticed that before. It made sense if T’Challa was on speaking terms with his professors, though; he was several kinds of genius. Steve swallowed around his nerves. “Nope, nowhere important. I usually just grab a quick dinner after class and like… nap or something…”

    Summary

    “This is Lucky,” Clint said when a dog got between him and Natasha. Lucky’s vest was bright, like desert mornings and night explosions.

    “Does he help?” Natasha asked.

    Clint pressed his hands flat on the counter behind him. “He saved my life.”

    Natasha looked at Steve, her expression fierce. Steve resisted the urge to yank down his sleeves. Instead, he dug his nails into the puckered skin on his forearms.

    AKA
    An AU in which Steve is a veteran just trying to survive (or not).

    Summary

    Steve looks down and catches sight of a bright pink drink in a hurricane glass. Moisture is beaded on the outside, and the cool feel of it is nice on Steve’s sweaty hand as he picks up the monstrosity Sam has ordered for him.

    “What the hell is this?” Steve asks, a disbelieving smile on his face. “You couldn’t just order me a beer?”

    “You said to surprise you,” Sam smirks. “And you made me wait.”

    “But what is it?” Steve repeats, and is answered by a deep, unfamiliar voice.

    “It’s a Singapore Sling,” the man behind the bar is smiling. “Not what you were expecting?”

    In which Bucky is a bartender and Steve is immediately smitten. He's not the only one.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes never fell off of the train in the Alps. Steve Rogers didn't have to wake up alone in the future. Things aren't exactly perfect as they try to come to terms with a completely different future and work out the feelings that they've had for each other for decades, but at least they get to figure it out together. (The MCU re-imagined with Bucky as an original Avenger)

    Summary

    There were rules for a reason. To keep people safe, to get things done right, to make a living situation work. Sure, every once in a while, a rule will be annoying, but you work around it. Bucky follows the rules - hell, he helped write some of them. It was better for him if things were organized specifically. Teaching was less stressful, and his roommate was less of the lioness she could be. Two rules that had been emphasized more than any other: don't take all the hot water, and don't fall for a lecturer. It'd been going great for two years!
    And then life fucked it over in a single day.
