    Summary

    After the rescue of the 107th, Steve Rogers cashes in all of his favors and makes what deals he can to get Bucky a medical discharge from the Army, sending him home to Brooklyn and far from enemies and curious scientists both. But Steve's war goes on until it ends badly, in an exploding plane over the Black Sea. Captain America is presumed dead, his shield recovered and returned to a grieving America while his body remains undiscovered.

    Seven years later, a new danger is threatening to unbalance the already-roiling Cold War: a Soviet assassin let loose from behind the Iron Curtain. Peggy Carter isn't sure she wants to believe that the assassin is a super-soldier because of what it could mean, but she does know that whoever it is, she'll have to break her promise to keep Bucky Barnes far from danger.

    Summary

    “They really didn’t want the mask to come off.” Hill thumbed through the scans, and pulled out a film that she then handed over to Sam, face mostly expressionless but for the flat line of her pursed lips.

    Sam accepted the film and held it up to the light, angling so both he and Steve could see it, squinting at the outline of the Winter Soldier’s skull, and the blips of unnatural white that showed up, God, in his brain, not to mention about half his teeth, plus the mask, with its thin protrusions—

    “Those are pins,” Steve realized. He looked over at Hill. “The mask—it’s nailed to his face.”

    Hill’s face was as unmoved as ever. “Like I said. They really didn’t want it coming off.”

    Summary

    Bucky woke up with a headache, a mouth that tasted like something had died in it, and hands-down, swear-to-god, the most beautiful man he had ever seen asleep in his lap.

    Bucky was also, he realized after a moment, strapped down to a hospital bed with about six different monitors making unsynced, equally piercing, beeps. Beyond that he couldn’t quite see—there was a hideous floral curtain pulled around the bed, and while he could just make out figures moving in the room beyond it, the pattern made his head pound even worse the longer he looked at it.

    So. That was concerning.

    Summary

    The long and short of it was, Bucky knew he was hopeless. Hopelessly queer, hopelessly entrenched in a family that had no love for people like him, and hopelessly hung up on his best friend. It was dangerous. It was sad. But it was inevitable. And Bucky was prepared to live with that.

     

    Bucky has always known he was queer.
    Steve has always been very confused about Bucky’s queerness.
    Bucky engages in risky sexual behavior.
    Steve engages in angst, for any number of reasons, including but not at all limited to Bucky’s risky sexual behavior.

    Summary

    It starts as a joke on Instagram, a tourist in New York posts a picture with the caption: Was going through my vacation photos and saw this. No big deal. It's just the ghost of Bucky Barnes.

    By the end of the day the image has gone viral: a young man with short brown hair walking down the street in a grey pea coat, hands in his pockets as he glances back just in time to be caught in the photo. The moment Steve sees it, he knows it’s Bucky. He doesn't care what his friends tell him. He knows it's not just some lookalike, and it's sure as hell not a ghost.

    (Or; the Winter Soldier does not kill Howard Stark and his wife in 1991, and escapes from Hydra with Howard's help. But fate still has every intention of getting Steve and Bucky back within the same time and place)
