    Summary

    It’s not that life isn’t good. The future—the present, as it stands—is great. The food is excellent. Messaging is instant. Movies are in 3D. Steve is only one medical miracle of many. Even the grime of New York City is nicer than the near-constant stink of the thirties. No, it’s not that the world is any worse.

    Steve was just lonely as hell.

    or, the one where steve is still captain america, bucky is a hot librarian, and they fall in love, anyway.

    Summary

    When he's not editing a magazine he truly loathes or navigating a rocky relationship he truly doesn't deserve, Bucky Barnes writes a fantasy romance column with an unexpectedly loyal internet following about the barista at his favorite cafe. Barista Boyfriend makes these other worlds bearable, but the real world dreamboat isn’t remotely involved; Steve Rogers is just a muse. Everyone loves the column. And it definitely isn’t killing Bucky very gently in 500 word increments, not in the slightest. What kind of a writer can't keep fact and fiction straight?

    James Fuckin' Barnes, that's who.

    Summary

    This is the 4 Minute Window Advent calendar for the 2016 holiday season. As with last year, my goal is to do a bit of story every day (knock wood) between the Immaculate Conception and Christmas. Explicit eventually, the rest as it comes. Feel free to send me your hopes and dreams and I'll see what I can do. Hope you enjoy!

    Summary

    After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.

    Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.

    Summary

    There’s such finality in his voice that Chris feels abruptly ill. He wants to apologize. He wants to take it back and stay, stay however long Sebastian wants him to. He’d thought this was the right choice, but now he feels like he’s ruined everything.

    ----
    This may have started just for Sebastian, but that doesn't mean Chris had nothing to lose.

    (Companion to chapter 9 of You Once Said if We Were Careful)
