    Summary

    When Tony tried to urge the homeless guy sleeping on the steps of the Tower’s loading dock to move, he never expected that he'd found Hydra’s pet assassin—James "Bucky" Barnes.

    Now, after months of keeping his presence a secret from the Avengers and helping Barnes learn to cope with both his returning memories and the modern world, Hydra is back for their favorite toy and Tony must call in old friends to save the life of the man he just might have come to care for a little too much.

    Summary

    Tony marched into Bucky's personal bubble until they were chest to chest. "All right Bucky bear. You. Me. Gym. I'll bring the suit."

    Bucky grinned victoriously. "Whatever you want, tin can. I'll not only have you pinned in just a few minutes, I'll even have you out your fancy metal suit."

    "Bring it, Barnes." Tony ran to the door, bumping into Steve. He spun and glared at Bucky challengingly. "I bet you a week of dirty dishes." He sprinted down the hall.

    "You don't even do your own dishes in the first place." Bucky chased after Tony.

    Steve watched in shock and amazement as Bucky and Tony disappeared from view, their banter echoing through the hall even as they vanished.

    Clint cleared his throat and looked up at Steve like a child knowing that they'd just outsmarted all of the adults in the room and expected praise to be showered upon them. "Well," Clint started innocently enough. "I can definitely see why you'd think Bucky and Tony aren't interested in each other. I'm sure that innuendo about Bucky ripping off Tony's suit was completely innocent and not at all—"

    "Shut up, Clint."

    Clint grinned and saluted. "Aye, aye, Captain."

    Summary

    At loose ends after his release from the Army, Bucky finds himself with a crappy job at Hydra Securities and an even crappier living situation, sharing a studio apartment with a roommate who thinks a tacked-up sheet creates sufficient privacy to engage in BDSM while Bucky's trying to sleep. Bucky is counting down the days until the end of the lease and spending as much time as he can at Steve's already-overcrowded apartment... Until one night he overhears his roommate ignoring a clear "no" from his latest one-night stand and decides to intervene.

    Summary

    "Do you believe the universe fights for souls to be together?" Tony asked, trying to keep his voice steady and tell himself the answer wasn't everything.
