    Summary

    "You think your old army buddy is working at Subway?”

    “Of course not,” said Steve, trying to sound like he thought the idea was ludicrous. “Bucky died in 1944. I just...” He didn’t know what to say, so he slapped on his best lonely soldier face and lied. “It’s just it’s nice to pretend for a bit, you know?”

    “No,” said Natasha. “It sounds deeply unhealthy, but you do you.”

     

    In which Steve finds a man that looks a lot like Bucky making sandwiches in a Brooklyn subway. Except Bucky died seventy years ago, and this guy shows no sign of remembering Steve.

    Summary

    Bucky reached up to pat Steve’s cheek reassuringly, missed, and hung onto his neck instead. “What happened to you?”

    “I joined the army.”

    Bucky’s unfocused eyes drifted over him. This Steve was huge. It occurred to Bucky that maybe they were in heaven, where Steve had the strong, healthy body he never got to have on earth. It struck him as unfair. Steve had never deserved to be sick; why did he only get to be healthy after he was dead? “Are we dead?”

    “C’mon, Buck, I need you to focus on me, okay? We have to get out of here. Can you walk?”

    It didn’t occur to Bucky until much later that Steve had never answered his question.

    Summary

    Bucky was home-- he'd shown up at Steve's suite in Stark Tower fresh off his HYDRA Revenge Tour several months ago. Since then, swamped with rehabilitating the former Winter Soldier, people had mostly stopped worrying about Steve. He was doing better, really. He was. Just ask him, he'll totally tell you the truth. He's really fine.

    So, that's what everyone goes with. Maybe it's just easier to believe him rather than look for all the signs to the contrary.

    Until, after Bucky has mostly reclaimed himself-- his mind, his body, his memories-- a perfect storm of conditions hits the Tower and forces a few things to light about Steve and his less than satisfactory coping mechanisms.
