    Summary

    Maybe if failing means he gets to have any of this, ever, at all - then maybe he fucking wants to fail. Maybe it's fucking worth it, whatever that makes him. And maybe whatever fucking else is, or ever was, maybe since he made a choice when he was a kid too stupid to even fucking start to grasp what he was deciding . . . maybe since then there's been one good thing he's ever got to have, and maybe it's worth whatever it fucking makes him, keeping it. Getting to keep it.

    Summary

    The point is, though, that even if Clint didn't like Barnes at all, he'd still feel the need to solve the problem that nobody else seems to know how to solve.

    (Or, in which Clint solves the problem of getting the kitten fixed.)

    Summary

    "I'm not going to ask about specifics," she says, quietly, moving to walk a bit closer so (Sam's pretty sure) she can stay quiet, "because we both know you're not going to give them to me and fuck knows I get that. But given that it's all going to land in my lap if it does go wrong, your general impression would be . . . appreciated."

    Summary

    After a minute of fighting against the stupid fucking impulse, drive, fear that makes him want to pull away, Bucky says, "Merry fucking Christmas," and maybe it could be a wry joke instead of bitter and spitting acid. Maybe.

    Steve's arms tighten for a second and there's no joke in his voice when he says, "Trust me, I've had worse."

    Summary

    Today wandering takes him to a Vietnamese cafe, and also to a new garden store and nursery that he's pretty sure wasn't there before. He grabs a hotdog for lunch and then, since he's out, Steve figures now is probably as good a time as any to pick up the stuff that a kitten that small's going to need.

    Summary

    [H]e makes coffee and brings it over, because there's no mug on the one of the nesting tables Bucky's got pulled over in front of him, and it makes for an excuse to wander over, glance at the tablet and ask, "Who's she?" as he puts both cups of coffee down and sits beside Bucky on the couch.

    The kitten's curled up in the space in Bucky's lap between his ankle and the rest of him, asleep. Steve'd wondered where she'd got to. After a beat, Bucky inhales a little deeper and then shoves the tablet towards Steve, rubbing his eyes with his right fingertips. As Steve picks it up, Bucky reaches for his coffee.

    The photo on the tablet's from a Wikipedia article, and Steve hits the back button at just about the same time Bucky says, "His wife," quiet and dull, as the article title loads and reads Grace Alice Pierce.

    Summary

    When the cab pulls up to his curb, Sam pays the cab-driver, pulls his duffle out of the back and slings it over his shoulder, and walks up his own driveway - to find a white guy he doesn't know sitting on his front doorstep. And that's not usually a thing that happens to him.

    Summary

    Ten minutes ago, he wanted to claw his skin off, maybe felt like all of that shit was going to do it for him and rip its way out from the inside no matter what he did.

    Summary

    how hard would it be to find out what was last viewed on a smashed tablet?

    [Steve] expects Tony to ask for details, is resigned and prepared to type enough to satisfy him even one-handed on the stupid phone. Instead Tony just replies, nlss u cpied that cmmrcl & stuck in blender & ttly fuked it up or sthing stupid? not. opposite of, and then adds, if u need new 1 dn't buy yt ive got sthing u shld try 1st.

    That makes Steve eye the screen warily for a minute, as a stand in for eyeing Tony the same way. He sends, try not to build Skynet, OK?

    Tony tosses back, holy shit a pop culture reference less than 40 yrs old. barely. nice work! also fuck *you* I would never build skynet.

    (immediately follows shake off all of your sins)

    Summary

    So Steve takes it all apart, all the tangled shit inside his own head, and looks at it, and doesn't get any simple answers because he almost never does, but at least is pretty sure he's got a good idea where all the traps might be. He hopes.

    Contemplates the Latin for merciful Jesu, Lamb of God, who takest away the sins of the world, please, please don't let me fuck this up.

    Summary

    Steve wakes up around five in the morning from the kind of sleep that manages to both be incredibly deep, and not very restful. The kind that feels like bodily hauling yourself out of a warm dark pit, along with the fuzzy darkness clinging like the smell of smoke, the sense that you've been in bed too long already but you'd still really like to go back to sleep, and a faint headache.

    It has not (is the first thing he thinks) been a good week.

    Summary

    Steve's voice is quiet and sad and resigned and he says, "And with how food's still . . . not getting easier, I was wondering if that was something you tried, when you couldn't get them to kill you. But I think that, considering," he goes on, "we can just go with yes on that."
