    Summary

    In the aftermath of defying his country to save his best friend, Steve Rogers agreed to a plea bargain that would grant his friends immunity but send him to prison. That was two years ago.

    Bucky had a plan for when Steve finally was released from prison: a quiet house and a big bed, maybe a dog. None of his plans included Steve agreeing to sacrifice himself to save the very people that had stripped him of his title and took away his freedom. But old enemies have a way of coming back.

    Summary

    Steve took the perfunctory steps backward until his shoulder blades were pressed to the cold concrete while the tray was slid in. A styrofoam bowl filled with pale brown mush that looked a whole lot like oatmeal and tasted a whole lot like nothing, a styrofoam cup filled with lukewarm water, two green pills the size of paperclips, and a chocolate bar?

     

    Or, the one where Steve's been missing for years but the whole world just assumes he's been on the run.

    Summary

    But Steve was fine.

    Sure, he hadn’t seen Bucky in months, and sometimes he was at the punching bag so long that his skin started to peel off to expose the bones of his fingers, and sometimes he couldn’t find the energy to drag himself out of bed, and sometimes he went weeks without sleeping, and sometimes he thought about throwing himself head-first off the nearest tall structure, but he was fine.

    He was absolutely, perfectly, one-hundred percent, fucking fine.

    AKA
    In which Steve learns how to deal with his shit, and Bucky learns how to stop leaving.

    Summary

    Steve's rarely been touched in a way that didn't equate to some kind of hurt. The cold metal of a stethoscope against his frail chest or the sting of a needle drawing yet another blood sample, when he was a sickly child. The bone-shattering punches thrown by the neighborhood bullies on the playground, or by his own father at home, drunk and wild. His mother, weak and clutching at him as she grew more incoherent with the drugs as the cancer ate away at her insides. Touch was something he shied away from, something he told himself he just didn't want.

    Except...he did. He just didn't know how.

    Until he finds a flyer for a local "affection and intimacy services" program.

    In which Steve learns how to become comfortable with touch, and there is one very good dog, and a slow-burn romance.

    Summary

    “What? It’s totally an improvement. He’s not scowling, or dating bad guys, or slinking around in unsanitary places. Still a bit paranoid, but what can you do. At least he’s a lot easier to get along with when you can buy his affections with ear rubs.”

    “And you always wanted a dog,” Sheriff added wryly.

    “And I always wanted a dog.”
