    Summary

    Wherein Steve Rogers is a scrawny tattoo artist with more health issues than common sense, looking for someone to replace the piercist who just disappeared (Darcy swears it was alien abduction, Steve insists the guy just got thrown in jail) before his shop loses too much money and James "Bucky" Barnes is an Iraq war veteran coping with a metal arm and the combination of diagnosed PTSD and TBI trying to reengage with the world by filling the position left by the piercist in question.

    After all, nothing could go wrong with this plan, right?

    Summary

    They should have seen it. Sam, who was trained to spot the signs, should’ve seen it. Tony, who thought about it perhaps a bit too much to be healthy, should’ve seen it. Bruce, who’d actually tried, should’ve seen it. Someone should have seen it. But they hadn’t. They couldn’t even pin down what the first sign was.

    The first sign wasn’t Sam, sitting in a hospital room, saying in a low voice, “I asked him, once, what made him happy. He said he didn’t know.”

    The first sign wasn’t Steve charging into the fight, clearly outnumbered and ignoring the cries that it was a suicide mission.

    The first sign wasn’t Steve turning off his commlink.

     

    or

     

    Steve's not okay, but he's doing his best to hide it. Even so, cracks are beginning to show. But by the time his team catches on, it might be too late.

    Summary

    “Actually, I am dating someone.” He says.

    What ends up happening is, he says the first name that comes to mind.

    What ends up happening is, he blurts out, “Steve Rogers.”

    Without thinking, obviously. Because if he had been thinking, he would have thought of something better than this.

    And that's how Bucky ends up bringing Steve as a date to his sister's wedding.

    Summary

    Steve doesn’t like bullies, on principle. It's less about justice, or decency, or righteous indignation; more about the look in the eyes of the people getting stepped on, the people getting trampled, the people getting lost.

    So it cuts all the deeper, when Steve recognizes strength, precision, endurance, capacity: sees the pieces of himself not born but made, reflected in this body, this person, this weapon: the Winter Soldier.

    It slices through Steve’s soul when he returns the Soldier's gaze, and reads the only thing that lives in the deadness that pervades behind those irises in the night.

    It’s not You can’t beat me.

    It’s more You can’t stop them.

     

    For the prompt: The AU where Steve Rogers sees the best in everyone, and it is that quality that brings him back the person he loves most in the world; where Steve reaches out to help the Winter Soldier on principle, but when the muzzle-mask comes off, he finds Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    Of course Steve misses the Avengers - misses being part of a team - and he's always overwhelmingly glad to hear from them, to hear that they're safe, but after his search for the Winter Soldier had gone, for lack of a better word, cold, he eventually stopped asking why and started asking the important question, the real one:

    What makes you happy?

    Apparently, Steve's moved to Nebraska to find out.
