    Summary

    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.

    Summary

    “CHORUS: Brave girl.
    KASSANDRA: People never say that to a lucky person, do they?”
    -"Agamemnon", Aeschylus (trans. Anne Carson)

    -

    Steve’s always wanted to see Madrid: to have the chance to wander through Retiro Park; to explore the Museo del Prado and the Royal Palace and the Reina Sofía; maybe to light a candle at the Almudena Cathedral; to drink wine and eat tapas at all hours of the night and go dancing until the sun comes up, just once or twice.

    Never in his entire life had he expected it might happen this way, though: a terrible memory ground into his brain; a scar the size of his fist knotted over his shoulder; his friends convinced he’s dead; his hair dyed dark; and a bodyguard next to him that’s pretending to be his new husband.

    Summary

    Here's the thing: Steve has a good life.

    It took him a few years to pull it together, but he really did. He has his city, a fulfilling job, his people: Peggy, Peter, and Sam. He really has it all. The pain that burned through him when Bucky left was long gone. He'd grown up, grown past, and moved on.

    Or at least he thought he had. He'd buried those feelings so deep and moved past him. But staring at Bucky was making things bubble up, and he wasn't even sure what he was feeling. He was so certain that Bucky was in his past and that he was over him. That certainty seemed to waver a bit as Steve's mouth went dry just looking at his ex-boyfriend.

    Summary

    Bucky and Steve work for SSR Marketing in Boston. It's January 2015 and it's starting to snow in Boston, faster than can be kept up with. Bucky ends up with few transport options to get home and Steve offers to let Bucky crash on his couch until the MBTA is running reliably again. Mutual pining, close quarters, some weather-related mishaps, and some well-timed meddling from a mischievous, well-meaning Sarah Rogers, Natasha Romanoff, and Rebecca Barnes, do their level best to help Steve and Bucky own up to their feelings. Lots of awkward flirting, second-guessing, coffee, snow, and a puppy.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers has it all: He’s the hottest new artist in town, he’s dating the most eligible bachelorette of New York City, and he just got the proposal of his dreams. The problem? Steve already has a husband, and travelling home to finally divorce Bucky Barnes proves to be far more of a trip down memory lane than Steve expected.
