Post Civil War/Pre-Black Panther
Seventy years as Hydra's property leaves Bucky haunted by the ghosts of his past, filled with guilt and hiding the Voice in his head that torments him. There's no easy fix for the trigger words and the one thing Hydra worked to wipe away for all those years is now the one thing they want. His memories. Steve is determined to not give up on Bucky or his hope for their friendship. Deep down he has to admit to his beyond-friends attraction although Bucky seems too vulnerable. Steve can always hope. Bucky feels it too, now if only the Voice would stop talking.
“It’s darker out there in the real world than it is in here pal.” The Voice in Bucky's head.

A year has passed since Bucky came out of cryostasis in Wakanda. The trigger words are neutralized thanks to Mother, the Black Widow operative that planted them nearly seventy years earlier. His self-imposed mission of atonement stumbles forward wrapped in a host of PTSD symptoms, a seizure disorder compliments of Hydra’s mind wipes and a Voice in his head that he has come to tolerate, for the most part.
Steve and Bucky have moved from friends to lovers but the relationship faces mounting pressure from medication side effects, Bucky's feelings of guilt, and ill-timed late-night calls from Tony Stark. Bucky finally breaks and heads to Russia on a quest for redemption that brings him face-to-face with his own violent past. Steve is a hot three seconds behind him.
