    Summary

    “CHORUS: Brave girl.
    KASSANDRA: People never say that to a lucky person, do they?”
    -"Agamemnon", Aeschylus (trans. Anne Carson)

    -

    Steve’s always wanted to see Madrid: to have the chance to wander through Retiro Park; to explore the Museo del Prado and the Royal Palace and the Reina Sofía; maybe to light a candle at the Almudena Cathedral; to drink wine and eat tapas at all hours of the night and go dancing until the sun comes up, just once or twice.

    Never in his entire life had he expected it might happen this way, though: a terrible memory ground into his brain; a scar the size of his fist knotted over his shoulder; his friends convinced he’s dead; his hair dyed dark; and a bodyguard next to him that’s pretending to be his new husband.

    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Summary

    “Real attractive.” He laughs as Seb tries to wipe the stray pizza sauce off his chin using one of the cheap, pitifully tiny napkins that’d been provided with their order.

    “I know.” When Sebastian grins, it’s wide and relaxed and teasing. Dazzling with its sunshine-y brightness. “Try not to fall in love with me.”

    Too late, Chris thinks.

    Summary

    In which Bucky is just trying to live life and enjoy his unofficial official table at the obnoxiously hipster coffee shop but some guy named Steve stole his spot.

    Or, the time that Bucky unintentionally befriended the Avengers and had no idea.

    Summary

    Hydra programmed Bucky to ensure he could never get far from them, or lead a normal, happy life if he somehow did escape. Sixteen hours. That’s how long he has to find someone to fuck him. Otherwise? Crippling, mind-whitening pain. Bucky gets by with hookers at first, then becomes one, until Steve Rogers finds him again and changes everything.
