    Summary

    “I need you,” Tony said brightly, “to bail Captain America out of jail.”

    “You BEAT UP A BAR?”

    “Community service, my ass. Whose idea was this?”
    “Stark's.”
    “Figures.”

    “So, you got detention ...”

    The story of how Steve ended up recording those PSAs for Peter Parker's high school. Also how he beat up a Brooklyn bar, went to jail, acquired two fountain pens, and finally made some friends who actually understood him.

    Granted, those friends were a billionaire inventor with no social skills, the only known surviving Black Widow, and a human dumpster fire who loves Dog Cops and won't wear shoes, but who's counting?

    “Holy shit,” Clint repeated. He sounded almost reverent, one colossal fuckup acknowledging another.

    “I had a bad day,” Steve said. Even his raspy voice sounded defeated.

    “Are we at war now?” Clint replied.

    Steve frowned at him. “What?”

    “Shut up,” Natasha ordered, jabbing her pen down at the end of her last signature. “We're leaving.”

    Summary

    In which Natasha’s recruitment of Bruce Banner to track down the Tesseract goes... a little differently.

    (This is the self-indulgent curtainfic outsider POV epilogue to a massive complicated Bruce/Bucky-focused recovery AU that I haven't written and may never write. Because why write the 150,000 words of setup when you could just write the punchline?)

    "Oh, we're pretty modern here," Rogers said in a voice she had definitely heard in a propaganda film. "We've got color TV and organic kale and legal sodomy."

    Summary

    "You think your old army buddy is working at Subway?”

    “Of course not,” said Steve, trying to sound like he thought the idea was ludicrous. “Bucky died in 1944. I just...” He didn’t know what to say, so he slapped on his best lonely soldier face and lied. “It’s just it’s nice to pretend for a bit, you know?”

    “No,” said Natasha. “It sounds deeply unhealthy, but you do you.”

     

    In which Steve finds a man that looks a lot like Bucky making sandwiches in a Brooklyn subway. Except Bucky died seventy years ago, and this guy shows no sign of remembering Steve.

    "Are any of the people who did this to him still alive?” he said.

    “Yes,” said Natasha. “Those kinds of people don’t just disappear. They just start working for someone else.”

    Cut off one head, thought Steve. “Good,” he said, aloud. “Time for me to really start punching things.”

    Somewhere on the other side of town, Bucky Barnes groaned and buried his head in his hands.

    Summary

    Bucky woke up with a headache, a mouth that tasted like something had died in it, and hands-down, swear-to-god, the most beautiful man he had ever seen asleep in his lap.

    Bucky was also, he realized after a moment, strapped down to a hospital bed with about six different monitors making unsynced, equally piercing, beeps. Beyond that he couldn’t quite see—there was a hideous floral curtain pulled around the bed, and while he could just make out figures moving in the room beyond it, the pattern made his head pound even worse the longer he looked at it.

    So. That was concerning.

    “I thought that was a 1940s thing!” Tony shouted, taking on a hysterical note.

    “You thought sodomy was a 1940s thing,” Steve said flatly.
