“Listen to me going on and on about pie. You tell me more about yourself, Just Jack,” Eric prompts, smiling encouragingly.
“Uhh,” Jack begins, forcing himself to put down his fork and actually make conversation. “I play hockey.”
“You don’t say?” Eric says, smile widening.
“Chirp, chirp, chirp.”
Jack meets the love of his life while serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter and struggling to learn the difference between sexuality and dysfunction. Along the way, he repairs some broken relationships and figures out how to let himself have nice things, one of which is a small southern baker with a habit of concealing the truth.

It starts as a joke on Instagram, a tourist in New York posts a picture with the caption: Was going through my vacation photos and saw this. No big deal. It's just the ghost of Bucky Barnes.
By the end of the day the image has gone viral: a young man with short brown hair walking down the street in a grey pea coat, hands in his pockets as he glances back just in time to be caught in the photo. The moment Steve sees it, he knows it’s Bucky. He doesn't care what his friends tell him. He knows it's not just some lookalike, and it's sure as hell not a ghost.
(Or; the Winter Soldier does not kill Howard Stark and his wife in 1991, and escapes from Hydra with Howard's help. But fate still has every intention of getting Steve and Bucky back within the same time and place)

"I'm here to kill you, Terminator," Tony said slowly, "does that compute?"
The soldier looked up at him with wide blue eyes and no expression. "Okay."
Tony froze. "Okay," he echoed. "I tell you I came here to kill you and your response is 'okay'?"
"I am being decommissioned," the soldier said, and for one horrible moment Tony thought he actually seemed relieved. "I understand. I will comply."
(Or; Tony learns the Winter Soldier killed his parents and goes on a search for revenge, but ends up learning how to heal instead)
