    Summary

    There is a man who lives inside the Soldier’s head.

    The Soldier does not know much about the man. The man is an American, and he fought in one of the few twentieth-century wars the Soldier had not—if only because he did not exist yet. At some point, a war pitted their home countries against each other, but that did not put much of a damper on things. They are good friends.

    Here is how the Winter Soldier dies: the resurrection of James Barnes.

    An account of Bucky's time in Bucharest.

    Summary

    Ever since the events on the Potomac, he hasn’t had a real moment of rest, his mind constantly assaulting him with memories. Even the innocent memories are exhausting; trying to understand where each memory fits in the narrative of his life. The more vicious memories invade his mind day and night. And to make matters worse, he had to fight for his life. Only now that he finally has time to slow down, he feels just how tired he really is. The exhaustion has seeped into his bones and his muscles and it’s clouding his mind.

    ---

    Or: Bucky is forced to face his demons now that he has nothing else to focus on, though not without a lot of help from his newfound friends and a lot of therapy.

    Summary

    Steve's unending faith in his best friend was beginning to look less like hope and more like fantasy. When they'd caught the Soldier – in a fire fight that still gave Sam nightmares – the only thing the man seemed to recall was how to hit exactly where it hurt.

    Four months later, Barnes still refused to speak English. Refused to heed anything but Steve's voice.

    So, all in all, it was not a great time for Hydra to attack New York. All in all, Sam really wished they'd just killed him, instead of turning Captain America into a baby.

    Summary

    “Bucky,” a voice says, and the asset’s spine prickles all the way up like there are needles in it, small and strange and blossoming out sharp.

    “You know me,” he says mechanically.

    “‘Course I know you,” the voice answers warily.

    ---
     
    "Bucky?" a voice says, soft and tentative and a little wavery, and when he turns around, he gapes in awe and not a little fear.

    "S-Stevie?" he manages, and it's Steve, of course it's Steve, that's Steve's voice and Steve's eyes and Steve's big beak and Steve's stupid ears but... but... whose square jaw is that, and where did those shoulders come from, and how did he get so tall?

    "Bucky, how - how did you - ?"

    He shakes his head, still staring in shock. "Pal, I think I'm the one that oughta be askin' you that!"

    Summary

    You’d think a guy who owns one of the most successful bakeries in Brooklyn, has a million-dollar smile and that antiquated good ol’ boy charm, blond hair and blue eyes and biceps for days, would know what’s what.

    But don’t let that fool you: Steve Rogers is a mess.
