    Summary

    After that he just looks at himself for a long time, taking in the rich blue of the dressing gown, the silk dark enough to cover him well but sheer enough to hint at what’s underneath. The shape of the kaftan fades the breadth of his shoulders, and the sash tied around his waist accentuates the narrowness of it; creates an illusion of Bucky being slenderer, smaller; tiny, delicate. With the new haircut and the faint flush high on his cheekbones, he looks almost unrecognizable: clearly more pretty than handsome; feminine, like one of those housewives in the 1950s media, waiting for her man to come home.

    Summary

    Somewhere in the future, when he has become dust after being a dock worker, a comic book character and a ghost story, they might find him in the footnotes of the history of human suffering and realize that after the boogeyman came yet another, and then -- then, nobody can say that James Barnes occupying the final slot wasn’t a goddamn survivor.

    There are slots in history for a lot of assholes, and it has already accommodated him thrice, so maybe the last chance will fit in, too.

    Summary

    The Wise Man teaches him sometimes if he catches Steve puttering around the woods: how to read the trees and the moss, when to listen to the birds and when it’s better to leave their advice untaken. He teaches Steve about the bears and why you’re never supposed to call them by their real name; tells him grittier and truer stories about the woodsfolk than the old ladies in the village.

    “Bear no ill will for the woodsfolk,” the Wise Man tells him. “Washer hags will tell you to never drink from a forest-dweller’s cup, but if you’ve always treated Tapio’s court with respect, they will remember it.” He watches Steve with a critical eye; an old man with his long beard and ragged clothes, bird bones and animal teeth in his pockets. Then he pokes Steve’s chest with one bony finger. “You carry the woods with you, son,” he says. “Don’t fear them. Let them invite you in, when they’re ready.”

    Summary

    Steve saves him.

    In a way, Bucky wishes he hadn’t, because at least then Bucky could’ve pretended that those letters from Spokane and Tucson and Philadelphia never arrived. Bucky could’ve died imagining that Steve was safely in Brooklyn, clinging to life with the skin of his teeth, maybe taking Rebecca and Alice out dancing.

    But Steve does, and Steve is. Is.

    Bucky doesn’t know how to describe him anymore. Doesn’t know how to draw him anymore either.

    The book is gone. Bucky takes a deep breath, looks down at his shaking hands, balled into fists on top of a new blank journal, and starts again from the beginning.

    Summary

    Steve feels like he’s in some wild fever dream as he walks closer and says, “Hey, you all right?”

    107 looks up. He looks even prettier up close, even (or especially, Steve’s mind supplies unhelpfully) with his cheeks flushed with the exercise and sweat beading on his forehead. He does look a little crazy, though.

    “Huh,” 107 says, looks down Steve’s body, then up again. “I know we just met, but your dick looks like it’s getting strangled.”

    Steve opens the fancy cardboard packaging and pulls out the underpants. They are bright white and look small, but the girl in the store had convinced him that they were just his size. The waistband is etched with the brand name. Apparently, that’s very important.

    Sure it’s not my fault, Steve. I know I was brainwashed.
    Sure I’ll keep fighting, Steve. You’re still too dumb to run away from a fight.
    Sure I’ll join the Avengers, Steve. Bad guys don’t take a day off.

    …Sure, Steve. I’ll dog sit Hawkeye’s dog with you.

    Summary

    Bucky really hated magic. He had always hated magic, ever since the first time he'd been forced to believe in it, back in the trenches in occupied France.

     

    He hated it even more now.

    A beautiful white swan was standing where Steve should have been, and Enchantress was fucking giggling like the asshole she was.

    In which magic is terrible, Steve is sick of this bullshit, and True Love Conquers All

    Summary

    Steve was causing the problem in the first place. Steve who had turned bright red and bitten his lip when he’d found out that Tony had been “cursed” with temporary super strength. Steve who had been vibrating in the seat next to Tony throughout this entire meeting.

    Steve who was currently 100% rock hard, Tony had no doubt, and hiding it masterfully by clutching the shield over his lap.

    Summary

    Tony's arc reactor is failing, slowly, the light dying. He's cursed, a product of his own actions.
    Enter Steve, (making a valiant attempt at) rescuing Bucky from breaking into Stark's place to find records of Project Rebirth.

     

    Slow burn. Obviously.
    Set in sort of mid-first Iron Man, but also mid-second IM? and very AU on the Captain America side. Before Tony discovers who's behind all the bad stuff.

    Sorry, I had to up the rating starting Chapter 6.

    Summary

    It keeps happening. Not often, just once or twice a month, but it keeps happening. Always in the same way: it’s unplanned, sudden, unexpected, Steve is surprised and eager, his dick goes from zero to one hundred in two seconds, Tony’s touch is electric, everything he does drives Steve crazy, but he never lets Steve kiss him, he very rarely looks Steve in the eye, he never talks, never makes a sound when he comes, never mentions it later.

    It started out simple enough: A fantastic one-night-stand between the outright tea heathen, Bucky Barnes, and the absolute coffee snob, Steve Rogers.

    And it would have stayed simple, if neither of these two idiots had found out about their mutual hatred of the other’s choice in caffeinated beverages. But when are things with Steve in Bucky are ever that simple?

    Summary

    The world was full of things no one could have expected.

    Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes never expected to fall from a train into decades of torture and killing.

    HYDRA never expected their perfect Winter Soldier's programming to shatter.

    And Bucky, who'd once been the Winter Soldier, who was now an auxiliary to the Avengers, never expected to look down from a rooftop in New York City, where he was keeping watch over the world's most ineffectual aspirant supervillains, and see a tiny ball of angry sunshine. Fierce and fearless, he loosed feelings in Bucky that he'd thought were gone forever.

    Bucky was determined to see him again. The better thing would have been to introduce himself. Not to stealthily follow him as he leapt across the rooftops, strong and agile, feet touching down like he was doing gravity a favour.

    The world may have been full of things no one could have expected, but Bucky probably shouldn't have been surprised when his tiny ball of fierce, angry sunshine dumped him on his ass.

He's lost count of how many times he's almost died and how many times he's saved the world.
