    Summary

    “Buck…Bucky. You knew I wasn’t coming back. I couldn’t keep going the way I was. I needed her, needed the Howlies. I thought you understood….” Steve grips his wrist with an age spotted hand. “I never wanted to hurt you. I would never do that on purpose. Come on, you know me.”
    Bucky jerks his arm away, stepping back. He’s breathing too harshly and he’s about to say things that are going to hurt both of them but maybe it’s exactly what Steve deserves to hear. “You know what, Steve? No, I don’t know you. I don’t know a thing about you. You’re just some guy I used to be friends with but for you it was eighty years ago and for me it was a few days."

    Summary

    James "Bucky" Buchanan Barnes is America's protector, a national hero, the one and only Captain America. He's been dealing pretty well with the modern world since he woke up.

    Enter Steve Rogers. He's small and cold and absolutely professional. However, the seemingly frail nurse gives Bucky a surprise when he's suddenly caught up in an attack and makes his way through it like this was all part of a normal work day. Suddenly, Bucky becomes a lot more interested in the other and realizes that he can't just adapt if he wants to thrive.

    (Please take note of the tags! Mentioned suicide attempt and a lot of dark themes are mentioned. Keep yourself safe.)

    Summary

    Just 'cause Clint said it was okay, that they could be dumb together, it doesn't mean he actually means it, reasons Bucky. Just 'cause Clint's climbing into bed with him, still giving him space, doesn't mean he'll be there in the morning.

    Clint wasn’t supposed to know; at least, not this early. Bucky tries to save his issues for at least the third date, but they’ve jumped the gun here, with the blood and bed sharing and now this. Whatever this is going to be.

    a continuation of "my head my heart"

    Summary

    Hello this was inspired by a lovely roleplay I currently have going on. The roleplay started with Steve and Bucky already in a relationship but I decided to start this fic before they met. Bucky will be the dominant in their relationship, which will gradually move from "tentative lovers" to "master and kitten". Don't get dedicated to this fic if that makes you uncomfortable because it will happen eventually.

    Summary

    The serum and Vita Rays build Steve anew. In the process, he loses his memory.

    ---

    Steve puts down the photo of the little guy from Brooklyn. “Doesn’t sound like I lost much.”

    Peggy smiles sadly. “You will never know what all you lost. Nobody can tell you, because it was your life.”

    “No family, life expectancy of crap nothing, a drop out from art school after only a year…” Steve shrugs and smiles ruefully. “I have time to make new memories. It’s a clean slate, with a healthy body and years ahead of me. A lot of people can only dream about getting a chance like this.”

    Summary

    When he gets to the bedroom, Bucky’s there, sitting on the end of the bed with a towel around his waist. He’s hunched with his forearm on his thigh, his hair damp and wavy in curtains on either side of his face.

    Steve approaches slowly, though it’s impossible to sneak up on Bucky. “Hey,” he murmurs again. It’s if he’s just gotten home, but this time he knows what he’ll find. Somehow that changes his perspective. Bucky looks different. Not sad. Almost…beautiful.

    He lifts his head, his eyes still runny and sparkling, his cheeks and lips flushed pink. His hair looks black compared to the milky color of his face.

    Steve smiles in spite of himself. He crosses the room in two careful strides, then fluidly sinks to his knees at Bucky’s feet. With the added hight of the bed, Bucky’s perhaps eight inches taller. The perspective takes him back in time, and Steve finds him even more perfect.
