    Summary

    When Ben leans in, and red bounces of those dark eyes, Han almost expects to feel the sting of a saber piercing where his heart should have been. But he doesn’t move, the love he feels for his sons glues his feet to the bridge, toes sinking into the sands of too much time past.

    And then he feels something cool wrapped in his fingers, watches scarlet light dance like flames across Ben’s skin as his son hands him his hilted lightsaber.

    His eyes widen, and he feels confusion cloud his mind, his thoughts, blur his vision, and then his son’s breath is warm in his ear as he whispers-

    “Run.”

    What if the bridge scene happened a little differently?
    What if Ben Solo came home?

    Summary

    People change like the season, and Steve is the summer. He always thought that Bucky was the spring, all fresh-stepped, rejuvenated energy, full of step and stride. He isn't sure what Bucky is now, isn't sure he's anything. He isn't sure what he is either, a man out of time plagued by the ghosts of his past.

    The Winter Soldier doesn't remember who he is, doesn't know what he's doing, but there's a name on his lips and images of lazy Brooklyn days cycling through his mind as he tries to figure out just who James Buchanan Barnes is.

    Summary

    Retelling of CA:TWS with Steve Rogers as the Winter Soldier.

    There is an empty grave at Arlington with Steve's name on it. It's been there for almost seventy years. Bucky would do anything, give anything, give back every second of his borrowed time, to make things right. It should be his name on that grave; it should have been him.

    Summary

    “I should cut my hair.” The words are delivered as a statement, but with a hint of uncertainty. Bucky is staring at the stew Steve made, his spoon unmoving in the bowl.

    Steve blinks. “If you want to, sure. There's a barber I go to down the block--”

    “No.” Bucky's fingers have tightened around the spoon. If it were his left hand, the utensil would have bent by now. He looks up, blue eyes intent on Steve. “You can do it.”

    Summary

    Written for this prompt: Steve and Bucky are at a gay bar in the 30s, and some guy offers them money to take pictures of them as they fuck. They need the money, they say yes, and pretty much forget about it afterwards. The pictures come out years later.
