Ever since he was little Steve felt different, felt wrong. But Bucky’s different too. Together from Brooklyn to battlefield they try to figure themselves out.
He wasn’t sure when he learned what it meant to be queer. But the first time he thought about two boys kissing he knew it was a bad thing to think. He quickly imagined the two boys pushing each other away but that thought made his chest hurt.
Later he thinks its almost funny. The bullies knew before he did.

Steve and Bucky both end up in the 21st century. But neither made the journey unscathed. Now they’re together again with new wounds and old misunderstandings between them. Somehow they have to figure it all out.
He made his way to New York, as if somehow it would be the same as the city in his memories. But the buildings had changed and the people looked different than they once did; the city air stank in new ways. Still he would look down certain alleyways and the sounds would fade until he could only hear a strangely deep voice calling his name. And it was hard, but worse was that he could hear his own voice calling out in reply, hear the things he would have said in a cadence that was no longer his. There was a ghost in these streets and he was so close he could almost reach out, almost speak that dead language. But it still eluded him. He didn’t stay in New York long.
