    Summary

    Sometime around three hours after he’s finished his fifth bag of microwave popcorn that day (it’s so good he can’t believe how much butter there is) there’s a knock on his door. He sits up and looks around a bit wild-eyed at the mess of his apartment that reflects his inner soul. He throws a blanket over the coffee table and kicks things out of the way - put the couch cushions back, mugs on the bench, jesus what is the shield doing there, why the fuck is there blood on this shirt - and opens the door.

    Natasha glares at him from the other side. “Your boyfriend is causing trouble again,” she says, stepping past him into his apartment.

    He blinks once. Twice. “Okay, one, he’s not my boyfriend. Two, he’s an angel, and three - is he okay?”

    Or, Steve is a big fucking Mess and he and Bucky are just really really in love and they really really care about each other, okay?

    Summary

    "This job... We try to save as many people as we can. Sometimes it doesn't mean everybody, but if we can't find a way to live with that... Next time maybe nobody gets saved."

    An incident on the battlefield exposes how much Steve's falling apart under the crushing weight of leading the Avengers after Sokovia. Now Bucky's adopting a new mission: save Steve before he destroys himself completely, even if it means the end of Captain America.

    Part of the Captain America Reverse Big Bang 2017.

    Summary

    Steve’s spent an hour along Portobello Road before he sees the paparazzi on the left side of the street, trying to be inconspicuous by a street lamp. He crosses the street and ducks into the first store he sees, tucked behind a screaming red door and under a blue and white striped awning.

    He listens, feet planted in front of the door, shoulders tense, as he looks around the shop. Row upon row of books are on the shelves in front of him, the wood creaking under their weight. Behind the counter is a dark haired man wearing a jacket, elbow on the table, stubbled chin on one hand, gloved left hand flipping the pages of a book.

    No one follows Steve in.


    Or, the one where Captain America travels the world, learns how to be Steve Rogers again, and meets Bucky Barnes along the way.
    Also: the one where two old souls fall in love over young adult books, long distance calls, and texting at strange hours of the day.

    Summary

    Steve, it's not your fault, Sam had tried to say, before Steve cut him off, and Steve doesn't think that's untrue so much as it's irrelevant; fault's got nothing to do with it. It's just—wrong. It's wrong. Steve couldn't wrap his head around it the first time, how wrong it was. Steve should have gone first. Was supposed to. Bucky could have carried on without Steve, he knows, but Steve without Bucky is a zero sum. There should never be a world that Steve is in and Bucky isn't.
