    Summary

    This holiday season, instead of writing Santa, Darcy has been writing to her penpal. Topics of conversation include: life, work, favorite holiday recipes, and that one ridiculously annoying person who gets under her skin.

    Bucky has a penpal, too. He tells them about life, music, his best friend’s hilarious failed attempts at getting the girl, and this one person who never fails to aggravate him.

    Summary

    Everyone is looking for love. Even for the ones lucky enough to get their Names and meet that person, love can take years. Sam Wilson got his Name and then came the devastating revelation that fate wasn’t going to be as kind to him as it might have been. What happens when you spend your life wanting something that you can’t have? This is the tale of Sam’s 28 year journey towards his happy ending and the realization that sometimes love has been waiting for you a lot longer then you think.


    ...

    "Sam talks a lot of shit about being chained to a dead guy but the reality is that he wants Bucky with every fiber of his being. He’d really rather yank out his teeth than admit that, but it’s the truth. Sam doesn’t get to meet his soulmate and he doesn’t get to love him or touch him or anything.

    His heart is bleeding from losing Riley, and he’s already lost Bucky (I never had him, his heart rages). He feels so alone in the world. Who else can say that their soulmate died about thirty years before they were born? Who else can say that they’re ‘mated to a dead person the way Sam can? Maybe there’s someone out there but Sam isn’t looking for them."

    Summary

    Sam wasn't sure what he'd expected when he'd signed on to join Steve in hunting down the Winter Soldier. After over a year with no sign of the other man, he was beginning to think they'd never find him, especially once Steve gets pulled back into Avengers business.

    Sam was right. He doesn't find Barnes.

    Barnes finds him.

    Summary

    That seems to be the thing that breaks the ice between them; Bucky's never really hung out with Sam before, past being jammed into a too-small car for six hours and then two uncomfortable months in a safehouse trying not to get on each other’s last nerve. Now they’re getting lunch or coffee every few days. Sam falls asleep on Bucky’s couch three more times. Bucky joins him and Steve a couple of times on their morning run.

    He doesn’t notice, is the thing; doesn’t notice how ever since Sam slept on his couch that night he’s been letting Bucky closer bit by bit, that as Bucky’s been wondering about the boundaries and structures of friendship, Sam’s been drawing in.
