    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.

    Summary

    “And you’ve never done this before?”
    Something tingles at the base of Sebastian’s spine. He shakes his head.
    “Hm. I find that surprising,” Chris says thoughtfully. “You’re very obedient.”
    “Jesus,” Sebastian mumbles.

    ----
    Chris offers something Sebastian doesn't realize he needs. Someone to take care of him. Someone to keep him in line. Sebastian is instantly addicted, and Chris is willing to give him anything he wants, as long as he asks.

    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.
