It took months of therapy for Bucky to break his Winter Soldier conditioning, and Steve was there for him, encouraging him to talk about his past, his fears, his time as the Soldier. And Bucky talked about everything-- except why the barest mention of an Alpha makes him panic.
When Steve brings Bucky home, Alpha!Tony is ready to welcome Bucky with open arms and wings, but Bucky can't look at him, can't be in the same room without his wings flaring out to keep the Alpha away, a broken Omega panicking in the presence of a strong Alpha.
But Tony is a good Alpha, and the team pulls together to help Bucky, showing him what it means to be loved, to be healthy and whole, and one day when Tony holds his hand out, Bucky trusts him enough to take it.
And Bucky realizes that with a family behind him, with the safety hes found in the Omegas, the companionship from the Betas, and the unconditional love from the Alpha--HIS alpha, he isn’t broken at all.
But with a team like the Avengers, tragedy is never far off, and this one rocks the family to their core.
How can they fix the broken pieces of their lives when their Alpha is gone?

When Tony is kidnapped in Afghanistan, it takes the team three months to find their Alpha and bring him home.
But Tony doesn't seem quite right anymore-- he locks himself in his lab obsessing over building these new suits, hides his damaged wings and scarred chest beneath layers of clothing, and feeling like a failed Alpha, he wont let the Omegas anywhere near him- especially Bucky.
The family comes together to show their Alpha that he is not broken, just hurt, and they don't care about his wings or the arc reactor that has changed his scent, but Tony isn't listening.
Drowning in his depression, unable to sleep from the nightmares, and discovering horrifying secrets about his family, his past, the man he had called Uncle Obadiah and the way the Winter Soldier ruined his life, Tony is just a shell of himself, and the family doesn't know how to help him.
Tony doesn't know what to do either.
How can he get better when Coming Home doesn't feel like Coming HOME anymore?
