    Summary

    The first time Steve notices him, he immediately thinks, I'm fucked.

    Well, okay, that’s not entirely true. The first time Steve notices him, he thinks he recognizes the guy from somewhere, that maybe he’s an actor or a model or something else that screams Manhattan instead of rickety bus in the asscrack of Brooklyn, until he realizes, no, that’s not it at all. Simply enough, the man is just The Most Handsome Guy Steve Has Ever Seen.

    And then he promptly and succinctly thinks, I'm fucked.

    Summary

    They find the dog by accident.

    It’s tied to a concrete post with a thick metal chain and a wide leather collar near a guard station, seemingly left behind. It stares at them all and growls.

    Summary

    Buck’s running a little behind, but Steve can tell he’s trying to gulp down a cup of coffee in keeping with their morning ritual, and burning the shit out of his tongue in the process.

    “Easy soldier. The coffee’s not going anywhere.”

    “Shut up, ya dick,” he mumbles, but Steve doesn’t miss the corners of his mouth twitching up. “I got a schedule to stick to.”

    “If that were true, your ass’d be out the door four minutes ago.”

    Bucky flicks him in the ear and sits back in his chair. “No one likes a smartass.”

    “Uh, except you,” Steve reminds him, sipping his own coffee calmly. “Is that a bruise on your hand?” He leans closer to discern the blue stain on Bucky’s skin, but quite suddenly there is no hand resting on the table and no Bucky in the rickety kitchen chair, because both the blue hand and the man attached to it are darting out the front door.

    “Late! Gotta go, see ya for dinner.”

    His knuckles are scraped to shit, but there’s no blue on his skin when he comes home.

    --

    Steve's worried they're drifting apart. Bucky's obsessed with the color blue. Everyone's a little jealous.
