    Summary

    Everybody--including Steve himself--had been surprised when he'd turned out to be an alpha. The other boys had pegged him for an omega, and a bad one at that; one of the many jokes at his expense was that Barnes only liked him because Steve was even lower on the food chain than an omega with delusions of beta-status. Steve can still remember the feral grin Bucky’d given him after they’d heard that one for the first time, blood on his teeth from his split lip, and the way his voice had cracked when he’d said “I like you for a lot more’n that, Rogers.”

    Summary

    He meets Bucky Barnes on a miserable-cold day in November, on the losing end of a fight that he’s too stupid and too stubborn to walk away from. One minute he’s getting his teeth rattled in his skull; the next, somebody else is doing some rattling of their own. It ends in screaming and cussing and the fella who’d been roughing Steve up running off with a dislocated shoulder. Bucky spits blood and grins while pulling Steve to his feet.

    It takes him three weeks to discover Bucky’s a girl.

    Summary

    Marvelous Meadows has a really unusually high number of infants. That means if you're a teenager with nerves of steel and a willingness to be around babies and...well, okay, basically no other qualifications, you're in constant demand.

    So much for Bucky's night off.

    Summary

    “Hide that,” he says, forcing the words out past every instinct. “As well as you can, all right? Before morning.”

    Steve stares at him blankly, like he needs a moment to work this out, then swallows once, sharply. "What's your name?" he asks at last—asks as he stands there with the pelt in his hands.

    And oh, he thinks suddenly, what is his name? He can’t speak it, not with this mouth, he can’t sing it into the air like he can in the ocean. He just shakes his head; like his nakedness, it’s something he can't explain. Steve nods, just nods, his eye swelling shut and blood drying on his shirt collar, and says "we’ll figure it out."

     

    (An AU where Bucky is a young selkie who is accidentally called to Steve and ends up staying around to help this poor, wretched kid not die.)
