    Summary

    In a world where magic is as commonplace as electricity, HYDRA worships a god who craves order through death. They used His blood to create fierce Soldiers then enslaved them by chaining their souls.

    The man who was James Barnes is the last Soldier, the rest having been put down after succumbing to the call of the Blood. One night, out of control after a mission, the increasingly unstable Soldier runs into Steve Rogers. Instead of being turned into a red smear on the ground, Steve successfully talks him down. HYDRA decides to keep him. The Soldier's the last one they've got; if Steve can keep him calm he's going to do it whether he likes it or not.

    Like fractious racehorses have companion goats, they hand Steve off to the Soldier as a kind of pet. But studies have shown pets can ease depression, despair and loneliness, lead to an increased sense of safety and well-being, and provide a source of protection and unconditional love. HYDRA really should have reviewed the literature before they decided to give Steve to the Soldier. Especially since, once Steve Rogers is involved, protectiveness can get slightly out of hand.

    Summary

    Steve grins at him, bright and wide despite the split lip that must be stinging terribly. Buchanan—Bucky grins back, and it feels like something clicks into place. Something swell in the constricted chest of his temporary human body and quivers in his spine as warmth tingles through his limbs like the aftershocks of Grace.
    Absolutely nothing good can come of this.

    -----
    Or: Bucky is Steve's literal Guardian Angel--at least, until Steve gets himself killed and Bucky makes him an angel to save him. But just because you’re in Heaven doesn’t mean war is over, and the price of turning his friend into an angel might turn out to be a little more than some lost Grace.

    Summary

    Everyone is looking to set Bucky - decorated war vet, celebrated actor - up. He likes men, he finds women aesthetically pleasing, but he’s not the kind of guy to hook up. He’s tried that, realized that he needs to get to know the person before he has any attraction.

    Bucky’s pal Clint Barton proposes a cool magazine layout with Bucky and another man, photographed as geometric shapes, like construction materials, like architecture, rather than sex objects. The spread looks really great, and his manager and pal Tony Stark asks Bucky if he and the beautiful man in the photos are a thing. Which gives Bucky an idea...the press tour for his new film is coming up, and he could use a companion ... and then Steve surprises him with a counterproposal of his own.

    14Sep16 - Alternate timeline notes added for grins.
    13Sep16- The final chapter, A Home is Made with Love and Dreams, is up!

    Lovely art by substeverogers on Tumblr. So blessed - started out with no artist, ended up with three!
