    Summary

    Steve, it's not your fault, Sam had tried to say, before Steve cut him off, and Steve doesn't think that's untrue so much as it's irrelevant; fault's got nothing to do with it. It's just—wrong. It's wrong. Steve couldn't wrap his head around it the first time, how wrong it was. Steve should have gone first. Was supposed to. Bucky could have carried on without Steve, he knows, but Steve without Bucky is a zero sum. There should never be a world that Steve is in and Bucky isn't.

    Summary

    Steve doesn't go down with the plane. Consequently, the Winter Soldier spends seventy years thwarting, and being thwarted by, a blond stranger who shows up at all his missions and keeps buying him food.

    Summary

    Steve was a mage, not a fighter: he'd entered the tournament to face other mages. But when he had to face the Winter Soldier, he never thought he'd wind up being responsible for him, even if it was only for the time it took to get him off the Baron's lands. He hadn't dreamed it would lead to the Winter Soldier following him through half the kingdom.

    Steve wasn't sure why it was happening, he wasn't sure what the man wanted, but for the moment he was willing to wait and see. He just hoped he wasn't making a terrible mistake.

    Summary

    "Has it ever occurred to you that maybe you have new people that care for you? That love you endlessly? Has it occurred to you that someone who left has finally returned, despite all the odds against him?"

    "Nobody does Buck. It's a fact I've accepted a long time ago. You should as well."

    "Liar, that's not the truth."

    "Yes, it is."

    "No. It isn't. Because I can name one person who would do anything for you without a second thought. I can say their name with confidence because I know it's the truth."

    "Who?"

    "Me."

    Summary

    Steve crouched down again, slowly, so he was on the same level as Bucky. “You remember me?” he asked desperately.

    Bucky looked down at the portal remote Steve still held, then narrowed his eyes when he met Steve’s. “You let some yahoo experiment on you again, didn’t you? Some mad scientist said, ‘hold my beer,’ and you pushed the button, right?”

     

    Do not read this without reading the first story, you will be so lost holy shit.
