    Summary

    "imagine: bucky still falls off the train, and steve into the arctic, but instead of bucky being found by the russians he had fallen into the river and went under, the same way cap did. so, when 2012 rolls around and cap's been found, some guy with too much money and sentimentality goes 'wait, whaT IF-' and starts a search for bucky's body. because if the captain was found, what about his ol' pal bucky?"


    As different as things looked and sounded, the smell of Brooklyn was always the same, and it reminded him that no, he wasn't dead. This wasn't a dream. He was home.

    Summary

    After the war Bucky does his best to put his own tattered pieces back together. But eventually he has to recognize that Steve took the most important piece with him when he left Bucky for a farm in Washington State--going there to retrieve it is the most daunting challenge he's faced yet.

    This is a Bucky POV companion fic to So I Took a Faithful Leap. This can be read on its own but you might want to start with that one first!

    (Featuring: Bucky's private war, Peggy Carter again being a boss, the Howling Commandos, Steve's dogs, and a whole giant scoop of Found Family to top it all off and make the tears along the way worth it).

    Summary

    Bucky doesn’t fall and Steve doesn’t crash. The Howling Commados take out the remaining Hydra bases…and then they go home, just like all the other allied soldiers. Throughout the war, they discuss what each of them would do if they make it back again. The only person Steve doesn’t ask is Bucky. He’s afraid of the answer.

    Steve himself isn’t sure if he knows how to do anything but be a soldier and a weapon anymore, but remembering the promise he made he vows to try to be just a good man again.

    He buys a farm in Washington state, and tries to relearn how to be at peace.

    (Featuring: Steve as a bearded farmer, two rescued puppies, badass Peggy Carter speaking truth, the Howling Commandos doing the same, an apple orchard, soldier homecoming angst, and two dumb boys waiting way too long to talk it out–but don’t worry, they do.)

    Summary

    In 1943 James Buchanan Barnes watched his two best friends go to war, unable to stop them.

    In 1945 Steve Rogers and Daisy Bennett watched their best friend fall to his death, unable to save him.

    In 2009 the Winter Soldier did his last killing, waking from decades of brainwashing to find a world much different than he remembers. And most importantly, a world without the two people he cared about most.

    Summary

    The story about that time Stephen got tired of his incessant nagging and put Tony in time-out, sending him back to the year 1944. Of course, it was only a matter of a few short minutes before Tony found himself bumping into a couple of old friends. Steve Rogers? Oh, he looked the same. Sergeant James Barnes, though? Tony had a hard time thinking he was the same man he called the Winter Soldier. With a little more time, perhaps, he could come to terms with it.

    It's just too bad that time-out's temporary.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes gets cold at night like every other man on the front, so when he finds himself trapped in a bathroom stall with the prospect of getting down on his knees for Captain America, he doesn't mind all that much.

     

    There’s an obscene hole in the wall between the endmost stall and its neighbor. He touches the edges of it, sanded smooth, and stares dumbly when he realizes that it must not be a rumor at all.

    This is a tale of Captain America’s origins entwined with the founding of a new nation, and story of love and devotion overcoming the odds.
