    Summary

    Баки сдался спустя всего пару недель после выписки из клиники. Сложно верить в какое-либо будущее, когда даже простое выживание требует так много усилий.

    За покрытым инеем окном, на другой стороне улицы сидел, зарывшись в брезент, щуплый бездомный парень.

    Summary

    "A shave, a minor haircut, several weeks of consistent sleep with the help of some of Banner’s sedatives, and he was feeling more like good old Bucky than he had in almost seventy years. Something was still different though, and a long hour studying his face in the mirror, finding every new line, the touches of fading hair at his temples, the small scars from his goggles and mask, had shown him that there was no going back to the cocksure twenty-something who had chased skirts as if his life depended on it.

    Might as well make the best of what was left."

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is stuck. He bartends at what might possibly be the worst, most depressing bar in all of New York City, he lives in a shithole apartment which he can't make rent on, and he drinks himself to sleep every night. His best friend Natasha thinks he is suffering from trauma related to his two tours of duty in Afghanistan - he doesn't agree with her, but knows that something is wrong.

    Everything changes the day Steve Rogers walks back into his life.

    Summary

    “Let me get this straight,” Tony began, eying the man across the counter. “Your name is actually Bucky?”

    Caught between borderline confusion and apprehension, he nodded.

    “You’re joking.” He could have dropped the marker, but there was a line growing behind him and there was no time for fumbling. The whole point of volunteering to help was to make sure business ran smoothly, not slower.

    Granted, it wasn’t every day that genius-playboy-billionaire-philanthropist Tony Stark was your barista.

    Summary

    When Steve's dad is diagnosed with cancer, Steve returns to his childhood home to support his mom -- a small town called Gold Cliff, Colorado. Ten years before, he left Gold Cliff behind him, left his no-longer-best-friend Bucky Barnes behind him, with the intention of never seeing him ever again. But Bucky Barnes crash-lands back into his life nonetheless, long-haired and one-armed and haunted, keeping secrets from day one.

    Filled with self-loathing and millennial angst, they agree to a mutually beneficial sexual relationship to blow off steam.

    Steve should have known better than to think he could ever put Bucky Barnes behind him.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes has issues. Mental health issues, and a whole lot of them, to be precise.
    Bucky is fucked up, and he knows that. His apartment looks like a dumping ground on most days, he can’t sleep through the night, sometimes he doesn’t shower for six days and doesn’t leave the house except to see his therapist once a week. Mostly, Bucky has no idea how the whole “talking about your problems” thing is supposed to help him, but sometimes his therapist has some really great ideas.
    Like getting a dog.
    Which is how Bucky meets Steve. Steve has blond hair and shoulders as broad as Bucky’s future if he wouldn’t suffer from depression and multiple mental disorders, and a waist as small as Bucky’s self-esteem. Steve also has a yellowish dog with floppy ears called Sunshine. And sunshine makes its way into Bucky’s life with a bounce in its step.

    Summary

    Me to Kat: I really want a fic where Steve and Bucky date while Steve is smol, then they break up, and then reconnect when Steve is big, but Bucky doesn't know he's big, and Steve loves that because he's 100% over people liking him for his new looks.

    Kat: And you're not writing this why?

    Me: *grumble.* fine.

    Summary

    “Didn’t know you were in the band,” Bucky says lightly, crossing his arms over his chest.

    “I’m friends with the band,” Steve replies, modest. Even reaches up to rub his hand over the back of his head, sending his blue hair tumbling into his equally-as-blue-what-the-fuck eyes. “I design their stuff.”

    Summary

    James Buchanan Barnes was just trying to get through his reintegration to civilian life without becoming Bubble Boy, or a recluse, or some weird combination of the two. But then Josh Ray Person blows into his life at a VA support meeting with his stupid Elvis sunglasses and penchant for saying what he’s thinking without processing it first and drags him, kicking and screaming, out of his shell.

    Josh Ray Person was a lonely mess before he dragged himself to that VA support meeting. His boyfriend was in freakin’ England and the people he kept in contact with were too far to see every day so he was stuck in a loop of home-therapy-home-therapy-home-weed dealer-home until he forced himself to get out, go to the VA meeting his therapist had kept hinting at. When he meets James, Bucky, it’s like a breath of fresh air, a new project so he latches onto him like a grabby octopus and makes him his new best friend.

    Together they’re just trying to make it through the weirdness that is civilian life, one cup of coffee at a time.
