    Summary

    “If you wanted, you could share the bed again,” Steve said, still studiously looking at the wall directly in front of him. “We used to do it all the time, before. It isn’t weird. Not for me, anyway.”

    Whatever Bucky had been expecting, that hadn’t been it. “Oh,” he said.

    “I’m gonna go brush my teeth,” Steve said, and disappeared down the hallway.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    ‘You know I loved Peggy,’ he says after a minute. ‘I did, and I still do. But there’s love and then there’s you.’

    ‘Aw, Christ, Steve,’ Bucky says. ‘You don’t gotta butter me up, I’m already on the lam with you for Christ’s sake –’

    ‘You started this, you get to hear the end of it,’ Steve talks over him, looking so sincere Bucky wants to turn away but he can’t, not quite. ‘I’m trying to tell you – it doesn’t matter what happened with Peggy, what could’ve happened, who we might have married in another life. I was already spoken for, in all the ways that matter. She would’ve had me, but she would’ve had half – less than half. You know as well as I do, it ain’t got much to do with what’s fair or what hurts least. That’s just the way it is.’

    ‘I can’t believe you thought you got to say all that on a public bench in goddamn Hollywood,’ Bucky says after a minute, heart pounding. He doesn’t want to be outside, right now; he wants to fold himself and Steve into a box somewhere. He doesn’t want anyone to have seen the looks on his and Steve’s faces He’s blinking too hard, squeezing Steve’s hand as if he’s in danger of running away, then he releases it. ‘You got some fucking nerve.’

    Summary

    Bucky goes into ice, and Steve is left to deal with it while trying to find a new purpose in a world where everything seems to be up in the air. First things first; get his friends free again, and proceed from there.

    Bucky goes into ice, knowing that when he wakes up everything will be different. It will have been only a blink for him, but for others it will have been months, maybe even years. Still, there is a truth he knows; you have to save yourself. Others can help, but ultimately you have to be the one to do it.

    He also knows that sometimes what you need to do to save yourself is incompatible with someone else’s needs or wants. Incompatible with their happiness.

    Steve can’t help but think they keep finding each other only to lose each other only to find each other only to lose each other again, all the while circling around what exactly they mean to each other, never quite looking straight at it.

    There is another truth that Steve knows; he can’t take it any longer. The cycle must be stopped.

    Summary

    "Congratulations," [Steve] says, raising his voice a little to carry as he pulls down a couple plates. "You're old."

    "Yeah fuck you too," Bucky retorts, sourly.
