    Summary

    AU where there are no powers, Steve and Sam are artists, and Bucky and Natasha own a restaurant. Their friends all get really tired of Steve and Bucky making huge goddamn heart eyes at each other. And the restaurant may or may not be a cover for part of the Russian mafia?

    This whole story is fucking ridiculous, sorry not sorry.

    Summary

    A man wearing a light denim jacket over a dark blue shirt came into the shop, a box tucked under his right arm. Despite it being late afternoon, he was wearing sunglasses with bright blue lenses, and his long, dark hair was pulled back in a messy little bun. A few strands had escaped, framing his strong, unshaven jawline. The man looked into the café, smiled widely, and waved in Clint’s direction as he kept walking into the bookstore, and Steve’s mouth went completely dry.

    Beautiful, was the only word to describe that smile; straight, white teeth framed by full, lush, red lips, bracketed by laugh lines and an adorable dimple in his right cheek, a charming little chin cleft just visible under the light stubble—Steve was struck literally speechless. And that was before he got a glimpse of the man’s backside. Slim hips and a round, firm-looking ass led to long, lean legs that were encased in snug, dark blue jeans.

    “Guh,” Steve said, watching the dark-haired man continue on to the back of the store.

    Summary

    The ARC Reactor technology invented and brought to prominence by Stark Industries promised self-sustaining, clean energy. With the modifications and upgrades over the years, the technology was refined to the point where it was a near-limitless, perfect power source… until someone figured out how to deactivate its reactions.

    At 05:57 Tuesday morning, as Steve Rogers (graphic artist, bookworm, tinkerer, and omega) hit snooze for the third time and was dreading getting up for his yearly physical, the power grid for the entire eastern seaboard was shut down.

    At 05:57 Tuesday morning, as James “Bucky” Barnes (writer, fight club winner, amateur gourmet, and alpha) was sliding into the most restful sleep he’d had in weeks, the power grid for the entire eastern seaboard was shut down.

    They say the repairs should only take a couple of days, and life will be back to normal. But... what if it takes longer than that?
