    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

    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

    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.

    Summary

    Scars are complicated; Bucky's are even more so, given he doesn't remember how he got half of them; and this one's the most, because he does, almost every agonizing minute of it. It might not be a minefield to quite the same extent as it was before, but Steve hasn’t been about to push it, hasn’t thought it worth it at all.

    Summary

    Steve takes a minute to get rid of the bags in his hands, tossing sketchbook and new pencils on the dining-room table and putting the two replacement drinking glasses away in the cupboard. Then he pours himself a cup of coffee, microwaves it, stirs his sugar in, and then goes out around the corner and pays enough attention to see the little circle of orange fur curled up to one side of Bucky's chest.

    The blonde stops about five feet from Steve, plants her feet hip-width apart in the mud and her hands in fists on her hips, tosses her hair back, lifts her chin and says, "Well? What have you got to say for yourself?"

    Summary

    Maybe there's a part of Bucky's mind trying to tell him this is a bad idea, but it's drowned out by all the rest of him saying it's a fucking great one, completely fucking delighted with how off-balance he's caught Steve and how even though Steve's got a hand on his arm now Steve's not using it to stop him. At all.
