Accidental Baby Acquisition Level: Bucky Barnes
How Bucky Barnes accidentally became a dad and what happened afterward.
23 Jul 2014
As he attempts to re-integrate into the world, Bucky Barnes needs two things: first, a place to lie low with people who can help him; second, a chance to re-learn who he is and what he stands for. And though he and Steve Rogers love each other like brothers, Avengers Tower just isn't the place for that.
It just so happens, though, that Steve knows somebody who does have a place for Bucky. The fact that it comes with a ready-made team and a chance to wreak vengeance upon HYDRA is one added bonus. The pretty biochemist in the lab is another.

To one place Eris drew them all, the fearful Battle-queen,
beheld of none, but cloaked in clouds blood-raining:
on she stalked swelling the mighty roar of battle,
now rushed through Troy's squadrons,
through Akhaia's now;
Phobos and Deimos still waited on her steps to make their father's sister glorious.
From small to huge that Fury's stature grew;
her arms of adamant were blood-besprent,
the deadly lance she brandished reached the sky.
Earth quaked beneath her feet:
dread blasts of fire flamed from her mouth:
her voice pealed thunder-like kindling strong men.
Swift closed the fronts of fight drawn by a dread Power to the mighty work.
~Quintus Smyrnaeus, The Fall of Troy

SHIELD has fallen. There are those who are willing to step into the debris and rebuild, but it's hard to fix things when you're already so broken yourself.

In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).
[from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]
In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

Whoops, didn't see you there.
You'll be alright, I'm just going to put pressure on the wound.
I've been waiting my whole life to meet you.
Spare a cigarette?
In a world where your soulmate's first words to you are printed on your skin at the moment of their birth, you'd think finding your 'happily ever after' would be easy, but people are people no matter the universe and even a good system can have flaws. Here's how some of the Avengers might have met their matches, meet-cutes and meet-shoots galore!

The man in the booth before Darcy stares down at his pancakes with suspicion.
A few days after Bucky discovers his true identity, Darcy encounters him in a diner 50 miles outside of D.C. having apparently transformed from a handsome long-dead war hero into a creepy, scruffy, pancake-hating serial killer. So of course she tries to help him.
27 May 2014
Steve tells him that Darcy's harmless. Bucky imagines, on paper, Darcy is harmless. HYDRA wouldn't give her a second glance. But he does. He can barely keep his eyes off her. He's not sure he wants to.
