    Summary

    Pepper obliges with, "This is James, my date for the evening."

    "James Barnes," says Bucky, holding out the hand that Pepper could have sworn had been full of butterflied shrimp only seconds before. "Pleased to meet you, sir. Ma'am."

    Summary

    "Agent Rogers. We have to stop meeting like this."

    The Winter Soldier crouched in front of where Steve was slumped against the wall, hands and forearms glued to the stone behind him by some kind of sticky polymer. "Comfortable?"

    "No," Steve lied. "My blood circulation has been cut off. I've lost all feeling in my hands."

    "Oh, so I should probably cut you loose," the Soldier deadpanned.

    "It's a medical emergency. You don't want to be responsible for me losing limbs, do you?"

    "Tell you what, if you lose your hands, I'll make you some new ones." He held up his metal hand, smallest finger crooked. “Pinkie promise.”

     

    Secret Agent adversaries-to-lovers AU where the Winter Soldier keeps tying Captain America to walls and sticking around to chat. Shut up, Natasha, it’s not flirting, okay? (It’s definitely flirting.)

    Summary

    "I'm Grant," the guy said shyly. He had jet black hair with streaks of bright blue that brought out his eyes, even from behind his thick rimmed glasses. "I'm Captain America's assistant."

    "Am I supposed to be meeting Captain America today? Because I am not prepared for that," Bucky said. He tried to play it off as a joke, but seriously, he would have found something nicer to wear if he'd known he was going to meet a national icon.

    "Uh, it's only me," Grant said, biting his lip a little, just enough to show off the bright gold of his lip ring, and Bucky kinda wanted to help out with the whole biting thing, because Grant's lips were lush and pink and very biteable looking.

    Do yourself the great kindness of ignoring the title to this fic and just reading it. I promise you that it is worth it.

    Summary

    Somewhere in the future, when he has become dust after being a dock worker, a comic book character and a ghost story, they might find him in the footnotes of the history of human suffering and realize that after the boogeyman came yet another, and then -- then, nobody can say that James Barnes occupying the final slot wasn’t a goddamn survivor.

    There are slots in history for a lot of assholes, and it has already accommodated him thrice, so maybe the last chance will fit in, too.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Come for another take on The Grenade Story, stay for a really fantastic depiction of the challenges of actually meaningfully communicating in a relationship, which is Really Hard and Really Adult.
