    Summary

    The island is both a blessing and a curse. The enki fish cure sickness, but their magic cannot be taken away from the island. Steve is forced to live out his days on an island too small for his loneliness. He struggles to sleep, listening to the wails of the waves outside his window, or he thinks it's the waves.

    Then he meets a merman called Bucky. Bucky has streams of secrets. Secrets that could tear the two apart.

    Summary

    After that he just looks at himself for a long time, taking in the rich blue of the dressing gown, the silk dark enough to cover him well but sheer enough to hint at what’s underneath. The shape of the kaftan fades the breadth of his shoulders, and the sash tied around his waist accentuates the narrowness of it; creates an illusion of Bucky being slenderer, smaller; tiny, delicate. With the new haircut and the faint flush high on his cheekbones, he looks almost unrecognizable: clearly more pretty than handsome; feminine, like one of those housewives in the 1950s media, waiting for her man to come home.

    Summary

    Steve’s already showered and changed into sweats and a tank top, his hair still sticking up in cowlicks. When Bucky drags himself to the couch, still in his uniform with soot on his face, Steve takes one look at him in the soft glow of the living room lamp and opens his arms.

    Bucky drops the shield on the floor and crawls over Steve’s legs to collapse on top of him, tucks his face under Steve’s chin and exhales. “Jesus fucking Christ.”

    Summary

    The clothes they have given him at the facility are made of an expensive cotton. He can tell by the way it lies flush and soft against his skin. The way it does not snag on the metal arm. He has never before been permitted to wear clothes like this—loose, a quiet shade of blue.
