    Summary

    This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.

    Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.

     

    Or:

    Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.

    Summary

    Being a server at a high-end restaurant is working out well for Steve. All he has to do now is convince Bucky he's good enough to work as chef in the same restaurant. Steve's determined to prove to his best friend that all Bucky's talent and passion for food is worth something.

    He's going to make it happen, even if he has to omit a few solid truths to get it done.

    Meanwhile, Bucky has his own issues to deal with. Namely: trying his damndest to dig them out of poverty, make sure Steve's health is on the up and up, and not acknowledging his very longstanding desire for his best friend that is slowly eating him up inside.

    A story about food, compassion and stubborn idiots in love.

    Summary

    Sometimes Bucky thinks it would be really cute to meet someone in a coffee shop, like in those silly romantic comedies Clint makes him watch. But there is a reason why meet cutes in cafes don’t happen in real life, and it’s because customers suck.

    And besides, love fades.

    But coffee? Coffee is forever.

    --

    This is a story about love and life--and coffee, which Bucky would've argued was probably more important than either of the first.

    But that was before Steve Rogers came along.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers and The Winter Soldier meet for the first time in 2014 during the canon divergence events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

    It starts like this: this is how they fall in love.

    (C7: “The Winter Soldier?” Peggy asks.

    “He was Hydra’s assassin,” Sharon tells her, “metal arm, wears a mask. A ghost, until Hydra sent him out in the open in a last-ditch attempt to save themselves.”
    “I might remember that,” Peggy admits, pauses, then says later, “and you have him in SHIELD’s custody?”
    “Sort of,” Sharon pauses, “The Winter Soldier is currently trying to woo Steve Rogers.”
    “Ooh,” Peggy sits up straight.
    "Oh yeah,” Sharon snorts, “like a jealous girlfriend. Wears Steve’s clothes, follows him everywhere, glares at me when I’m hanging out with Steve.”
    “And what does Steve think?” Peggy asks..
    Sharon snorts so hard her throat hurts. “Steve is goddamn oblivious.”)

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is 99% certain that if he hears one more Avengers song, it could be fatal.

    He's also 99% certain that the stranger with the bright smile and blonde hair he met at the cafe walked out of his dreams.

    Starting an Avengers hate club with a man who buys you cake to combat your mental break down at hearing a stupid song one too many times seems like a fine idea, what could go wrong? It's not like either of them knows the Avengers....or that either one of them is in the band....right?

    Or

    The one where Bucky falls hopelessly for Steve and starts an Avengers hate club with the lead singer of the Avengers.
