    Summary

    "Apparently, as of this week I get enough functioning brain," Bucky says, matter-of-fact and offhand as he can be, "to actually start fucking understanding the part where everyone's dead." And he smiles a little, sort of, at Steve's wince.

    Summary

    The last time they argue about how Steve makes damn sure Bucky's nightmares wake him up and fully intends to keep doing so, Steve doesn't actually say anything.

    Summary

    It's funny how things go from known but unimportant to - well, not mattering, but having more meaning than they used to. Steve's never not known that Bucky's gorgeous, but the knowledge ran from a "the sky is blue, the grass is green" kind of knowing to, at most, a kind of wistful envy.

    Summary

    For once, here and now, there's no room for the contempt, the disgust or anything else that so often comes with this, with crawling back to clinging to Steve like a rock in the middle of a flood, sound and smell and touch and everything the good kind of familiar, known. Everything he so often has to ignore, like he's a fucking kid covering his ears and singing to drown out someone's voice, is all gone.

    Summary

    Except when Steve blinks his eyes all the way open it's not his mom sitting on the chair beside the bed, it's Bucky, sitting watching Steve with his arms around his bent knees and his sock feet braced on the edge of the chair's seat.

    Summary

    "Shut up, Steve," Bucky says, comfortably, which is as good as admitting defeat. It isn't admitting defeat - if Steve ever brings up the argument again, Bucky'll be just as stubborn - but it's as good as.

    Steve pulls the blanket down from the back of the couch, listens to the reader's voice, and traces abstract patterns across the middle of Bucky's back until, a couple hours later, Bucky's phone reminds them they should eat.

    (or: two points of view on the days after the previous fic)

    Summary

    Steve'd thought about it for a minute. You're saying Bucky had the equivalent of multiple abusive childhoods, one after the other.

    Sam rubbed his forehead. Pretty much. And that shit leaves a lot of marks - I mean, it literally shapes the brain. He might remember when you were kids? Sam grimaced. But the other stuff might basically be mapped in deeper, because it happened so many times over. So much more.

    Carved in, Steve said, and Sam'd winced.

    He's thought about that a lot, since then.

    Summary

    Or it's more like things shoved in a closet or stuck on a pile out of the way, actually. And maybe you're not even thinking about dealing with them later. Maybe you can't think why you'd have to. They just . . .go there. You need stuff out of the way, so you open the door and put something on a shelf. In a box. Put the box on the pile. Shift the pile into a corner.

    You don't pay attention as the pile gets too high or the closet gets too full and then everything - every single God-damn thing - falls on your head all at once.

    Summary

    It's one of those things, one of those times, where if Steve could be objective and detached he'd probably acknowledge right from the start that the progress (and sometimes he hates that word) is visible, is marked.

    That it's a marked change, and for the better, that when whatever it is goes wrong, when whatever it is hits the trigger line inside his mind, Bucky goes still and expressionless and then says, very quietly, "I need not to be here." And then, before Steve can make his head shift languages enough to form the thought, Bucky says, "No. You stay."

    Summary

    "Steve, I can't tell the difference between what I actually remember and what you've told me by now, and that makes this as pointless as the rest," he says, and he says it light and casual and quick, like Steve's going to somehow miss what that sentence says if Bucky dances over it quick enough.

    Summary

    Mercedes is limping and sucking at her right pinkie-finger when she makes it back to the front door of the building at the same time the white lady with red hair shows up for the first time, wearing high-tops and skinny-jeans, a hoodie and a coat overtop.

    Summary

    Steve's putting some of the knives he tidied away when Mercedes was coming up back where they live when he looks up because the balcony door opens and shuts again, leaves Bucky on the mat in front of it. He's obviously been out in the rain; he rakes his hair back from his face with one hand and then meets Steve's eyes, briefly, with a grimace before he leans down to undo his boots and get rid of them.

    Summary

    On Wednesday, she fails a math test and her brother has to go to the hospital because he manages to fall down and crack his head and has to get stitches, and Mercedes tweets worst day *ever* because she figures she's allowed to exaggerate.

    Summary

    It's funny, in a not at all funny way, how some things don't change, or at least haven't yet. One of them is that Bucky still has difficulty asking for things.
