    Steve doesn't know who Bucky is, but rescues him from an Austrian HYDRA factory anyway.

    The more things change, the more they stay the same. Maybe some results are just inevitable.

    Summary

    "You keep asking me what I want," Bucky manages, eventually. "But on any given day, my number one priority is to get through the day alive and myself, and to do it without killing anyone. Everything else is extra."

    Summary

    For a while, it seems like everything is... well, normal's not the word, but Steve's as right as anyone would've expected after being that seriously injured. He hurts. Physio takes time. Everything feels hard. It makes sense that it would. He was stabbed twice and shot three times, and Sam says he'd have drowned if he hadn't been pulled out of the river by--

    Sam doesn't actually say who. He doesn't need to. The guards by the door had said enough. If B--
      If he had remembered enough to pull Steve out of the river, then he probably--
        He probably remembers--

    Steve's hand slips suddenly off the counter.

    One of the things Steve learns firsthand: grief is never as straightforward or as linear as five simple steps, even when it doesn't take you 75 years to work through it.

    Summary

    Steve manages to make Pac-Man chomp two of the ghosts down, while running from Clyde, the recently-released orange ghost. He’s aiming to grab the fruit at the start point, directing Pac-Man to the middle when his touch screen freezes, ignoring the drag of his finger. Steve’s heart clenches, watching as Clyde creeps behind Pac-Man and Blinky respawns, making its way out of the cage. He drags his finger on the screen again, Pac-Man making an aborted move to the left, narrowly missing Clyde and finally eating the fruit—but crashes head on with Inky, who was still on the loose.

    “ARGH!”


    Or the one where Steve plays Pac-Man on the subway.
