    Summary

    [Part two of the series "Silverwitch's Timeline". Part one is "Oh, Little Maximoff".]

    All Bucky remembered about Kenya Maximoff, was the mature yet young girl who gave him more life lessons than anyone he met throughout his extended period of life. Before even realizing about his romantic feelings about her, Thanos snapped his fingers. Five years later, he comes back to an older Kenya who had to learn how to live in a world without the people she loved. Being the woman he admired so much, she created a whole foundation from the scars of her pain. Bucky's not sure if he has a place in there, so he decides to avoid her instead.

    Retirement in New York is nothing compared to what it looked like in Wakanda. Nevertheless, his agenda is busy thanks to mandatory therapy, Sam, Steve's shield being given to another dude, and an anarchist group threatening to burn everything down. If there's anything he can do well, is to not give up without a fight. But, how can he move on when all these things from the past keep chasing him? How can he concentrate on the mission when Kenya's nose was all over the place, making him all blushy and nervous? Will their relationship finally bloom as it was supposed to five years ago?

    Summary

    "Are you out of your fucking mind Bucky? Just a month ago you were all like 'don't go jumping out of planes Sam! Don't go off without a plan, Sam!' And now you're trying to make it seem like it was my fault we got caught?" Sam set his bag down on the ground and sat against the wall of the compound. "At least I have WINGS to FLY WITH. You didn't even have a parachute!" He huffed, "I actually can't believe you."

    Sam and Bucky discover their feelings, need therapy, and meet their new team!

    Summary

    Yelena Belova and the word parentless were synonymous.

    It had been that way for years, it was true. She had no other blood down to her birth certificate which, whoever her father was never signed. Though Yelena would go on to find a true father in Alexei, the thought never crossed anyone's mind that she was anyone's daughter to claim.

    But that was a lie.

    Summary

    Bucky would never admit it out loud to anyone, but his most selfish fear was that he would end up alone. Or not so much that he’d end up alone, but that everyone else would find someone better and leave him behind.

    ~~~~~
    From a regular kid growing up in the 1930s, to a "semi-stable 100-year-old man," Bucky loves and loses his family, his friends, and himself. You can think of this as my answer to the question "what is Bucky doing and thinking whenever the camera isn't focused on him?" (Answer: wishing he was drinking coffee and eating a good slice of chocolate cake).

    This fic covers events throughout the MCU up to and including TFATWS Season 1. There are spoilers. You have been warned.

    Summary

    Bucky has been at the Avengers compound for a few months now, and he thinks he's doing a fine job of covering up just how bad the nightmares and panic attacks really are. He doesn't want Steve to worry about him, and he doesn't want Stark to think he's a liability.

    When Steve finds out just how bad Bucky is really doing, he brings in some outside help much to Bucky's chagrin.

    Summary

    Steve is so happy to have Bucky back. His best friend is a little different to how he was in the 40s, but in some ways he's the exact same. But even if Bucky is his favourite person in the world, and even if Steve thinks his hair is really, really pretty, Steve's feelings for him are completely platonic. Right?

    Or: a love story, told through Bucky's hair.
