    Summary

    He knelt, touched his fingers to forehead, chest, left shoulder, right, and said more words than the soldier could ever remember speaking together.

     

    They came in a well-worn fluent rush, easier than any post-mission report: "Bless me Father, for I have sinned. It has been a long time since my last confession."

    Summary

    No one knows Steve Rogers is a witch until he nearly dies and accidentally creates a familiar to save himself. The familiar is part cat, part ghost, and shares Steve's soul. His name is James Buchanan Barnes.

    But little boys don't have cat ears, claws, or tails, and they're terrible at keeping secrets. To protect them, Sarah Rogers asks a witch to make Bucky seem human, and then enchant the boys to forget he's not.

    Steve and Bucky grow up inseparable, but they don't talk about how they know when the other's hurting, and Bucky never tells Steve about the urge to hunt he can barely control.

    He's terrified he's a monster, and then the War comes and then Azzano, and Bucky finds out he's right.

    And then he falls, and Hydra finds him.

    ("What are you?" Steve says.

    "I don't k-know." James looks at his hand, the sharp, curving claws, then at Steve again. "D-do you know? You made me.")

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes grows up with two best friends he loves more than anything. One is Steve Rogers, who Bucky can't have and shouldn't want. The other is a little pony who no one else can hear, touch or see. Not even Steve, no matter how much Bucky wants him to.

    Bucky learns quickly that the only thing you can really expect is disappointment, and he gets used to ignoring what he wants. But he has his best friends, and that's good enough.

    He knows he's lucky.

    But in our world there's no such thing as magic, and friendship can't stop a war.

    (When Bucky thinks about it years from now, he won't remember why his father was angry, or why he was crying, or why no one came to look for him. But he'll remember crying on the steps and he'll wonder anyway, because he was just six, but mostly because he was sad and afraid and alone.

    But he will always, always remember the moment when he lifts his little head because he has a feeling someone's watching him, and is suddenly looking into the apple-green eyes of an astonishingly small horse.)

    Summary

    "What's happening to you has nothing to do with you being bad," Steve said. "Nothing. It has everything to do with Hydra using men like lab rats. You think all the men who didn't survive the experiments were evil?"

    "No," Bucky said. "I think they were lucky."

    "Aw, Buck." Steve put his arms around him, his chest to Bucky's back. "Don't say that. Please, don't say that. I'm so glad you're here. I'm so happy you survived. All of us are. I couldn't—" He cut himself off before he started bawling; Bucky didn't need Steve's problems on top of his own. "I love you," he whispered. "You're the finest man I've ever known."

    "Don't know if I'm a man anymore, Stevie," Bucky said.

    Based on this AvengerKink Prompt: The serum made Bucky physically monstrous. (Link to the full prompt is here.)
