    Summary

    Time really is such a strange thing. Inevitable, unstoppable, tangled, and messy. Seventy years or a few hours? Months and months spent returning Infinity Stones or five seconds? 1945, 1970, 2012, 2014, 2023 - they can all exist at once and not. It makes his head spin.

    “Steve,” Bucky says as Sam helps him off the platform, takes the empty case from his hands. He sounds helpless, adrift - like he wasn’t expecting this to be Steve’s choice.

    (Or Steve makes a different choice in the final scene of Endgame.)

    Summary

    "Where am I? Where is this?" and he was in Brooklyn, he was on a beach, the train was shaking around him. He was in the plane, ice splintering up onto the windshield. He was in a tank, tubes trailing from his face, from his groin. Christ, he was cold. There was still ice on his fingers. He was in the Grand Canyon. He was in Times Square. This couldn't be Times Square. Where the hell was this? "Tell me! Where am I, who are you, where's—" —Bucky?

    Summary

    So long ago the details were lost to time, people began creating guardians of the dead. They were made from dogs, dogs who were buried in graveyards before anyone was laid to rest, their spirits arising as black dogs, bound protectors of the human dead.

    Steve had always wondered what would happen after he died. He hadn't expected the answer to be 'wake up in the cemetery he'd been buried in', but here he was, some kind of ghost, and he could see the trees through his hands. It wasn't so bad, and he wasn't alone—a sleek black dog, golden eyes glowing bright, was happily waiting to greet him.

    Decades later, on what was supposed to be a quiet, peaceful, definitely-not-life-changing walk through the woods, Bucky stumbled across an abandoned cemetery and into the impossible.

    (It's a ghost story and a love story and a story about dogs.)

    Summary

    Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his scavenged flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

    (A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

    Summary

    Steve squawked as a hand wrapped loosely around his wrist. He braked, wings banking so hard he almost somersaulted over himself, and surged up and away from the ocean, spinning to find himself staring at—

    A triton was laughing up at him, sharp teeth gleaming in the sunlight. Steve had seen tritons before. He knew what lurked under the water. The power and violence wrapped in muscle and skin.

    The triton's grin turned knowing, like he could see what Steve was thinking. "Hey there, Feathers. You want to go for a swim?"

    Summary

    Winter takes stock.

    Things are bad. Winter has never been inside this newest host’s species type before, but he can immediately tell that this one is broken anyways. Built inefficiently, poorly, badly, wrong. The host’s spine is misaligned, its immune system crippled, its eyesight lacking, hearing lackluster, its feet are somehow not the way they should be, the joints ache, the lungs are floundering. Winter’s host can’t even breathe right.

    This is it. This is the trap. Winter’s captors think that they can kill it by trapping it in a weak, dying host.

    They think wrong.

    Summary

    “Steve?” Bucky asks, still facing out onto their living room. “Do you see our wallpaper?”

    Steve turns around. The situation in the living room is the same as the situation in the entryway. “Yeah.”

    “Have you seen the photos. On our wallpaper. Before?”

    “Yeah,” says Steve, the rising panic into his gut transmuting into something equally difficult to suppress.

    “Oh,” says Bucky as Steve starts to lose it, his laughter echoing off walls covered floor-to-ceiling with photos of Bucky’s contorted face. “Oh, no.”

    Summary

    “Remember what I said about internet trolls?”

    “Don’t feed the trolls.”

    “Exactly. Did I not say the same thing to Barnes?” Tony asked rhetorically. “Were those not my exact words? I could have sworn they were, and yet.”

    “Bucky’s feeding the trolls?”

    “He’s throwing a goddamn seven-course troll banquet. Every time someone on Twitter asks if your relationship announcement is real, he replies. Colorfully.”

    Steve opened his mouth to ask what “colorfully” meant, then caught the gleam in Tony’s eye and put two and two together. He blushed. Colorfully. “Oh.”

    (Steve and Bucky announce their relationship in a very dignified press conference. Bucky then replies to every goddamn tweet asking him to confirm it with a different dirty euphemism. Things escalate from there.)

    Summary

    Bucky shrugs Sam off, half livid. "You think Steve's not sending a message, but I'm getting one loud and clear. I'm leaving him the fuck alone until he's ready to say his piece."

    But Bucky doesn't. He finds a half-dozen people in need of his help and then, against his own volition, raises his head to find Steve in the crowd. He's still a battlefield away, one hand bunched at his hip, leaning on the hammer where it's resting on a rock. Steve Rogers, god of thunder. Bucky should've predicted this ninety years back.

    Summary

    Objectively, losing the Bucharest safehouse and its contents was the least of Bucky’s problems. The balding agent he’d seen directing the raid was apparently affiliated with SHIELD, which was a shadowy government agency that made representatives from other shadowy government agencies suddenly remember urgent appointments when Bucky tried to bribe, threaten, and otherwise shake them down for information on what the hell SHIELD might want with a former brainwashed assassin. Dodging SHIELD should be his number one priority.

    Subjectively, he wanted his fucking cat back.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    The whole ship is like that: alive with light, as if light were the blood in its veins. It still bothers him when he's not tired enough to sleep, but he's starting to get used to it. Starting to appreciate that the thing he lives inside is almost as much of an organism as he is. Strange, but also strangely reassuring.

    Sometimes when he lies in the dark here, cocooned in his bunk, he wonders what it's like in the tube. If it's quiet. He hopes it's restful. Peaceful. Soft, like the sleep of late morning, with sun coming in from around the drapes. Steve wonders if the translucent panel that covers and shields and contains him also lets in light. If behind his closed eyelids, he can still see something, the way that Steve can when he shuts his own eyes here, now. If he is seeing a kind of permanent sunrise; a long dream of a slow dawn.

    Summary

    After Steve gets outed by a grainy cell phone picture, it takes the media less than 24 hours to discover Captain America’s secret relationship with James Barnes: classical musician, teen heartthrob, and son of a former president.

    The only problem? Steve has never met James Barnes in his life.

    Summary

    On the run with Sam and Natasha, Steve finds the words to describe his commitment to Bucky. As with most of Steve’s decisions, there are unintended consequences.

    “It’s no use,” Natasha tells Sam. “You won’t get him to go out and flirt. Steve here’s a married man.”

    They’re somewhere in Croatia, and Sam’s been hard at work, trying to pull Steve away from a busy night of sketching and staring at his phone. He wants to go out and drink plum brandy and dance with the locals.

    “You should go without me,” Steve says, hazy. Married. A married man. Isn’t that something?

    At noon on the twentieth of December, Bucky rolls over on the couch and asks, “When are we gonna do the decorations?”

    Steve, half slipped into a food coma due his inability to stop eating once there’s still food on his plate, and Bucky’s inability to calculate raw pasta portion size correctly, says, “Whuh?”

    “I think I’m ready to date again,” Steve said.

    “What,” Natasha said.

    “What?” Clint said, lowering his binoculars. He blinked at the dumbstruck look on the Captain’s face, then followed his gaze to where he was staring dopily at—at the Winter fucking Soldier.

    “Steve, no,” Clint groaned.

    Or: Steve courts the Winter Soldier.
