    Summary

    Sure, Bucky and the Howlers brought down Red Skull and the plane months ago, but demobilization of an entire army takes time, so it’s only now that he got to turn in his papers and step back onto good old American soil. Steve (he can call him Steve now, not Rogers, and not "pro-boy", which Steve had always worn with pride though it left a bitter taste on Bucky's tongue) came out of his final pro-boy checkup with face flushed, and looked around the Brooklyn streets. "Oh hey, my place is not far from here. Wanna go?“

    Bucky nodded, and hurried to follow Steve as those skinny legs sauntered down the street with easy confidence. He liked it when Steve lead.

    Summary

    Steve’s eyes traveled south, though he knew he shouldn’t. Barnes had hair on his chest - easy enough to follow its path, down his stomach and past his navel.

    Summary

    When Steve Rogers inadvertently touches a relic in the course of a mission gone sideways during WWII, he’s catapulted seventy years into the future. Before he's even sure where he's ended up, his search for help puts him in contact with Bucky Barnes, a historian and college professor who has built a career around studying Captain America.

    With Bucky's help, Steve means to find out how exactly he ended up in 2017, and solve the bigger mystery of how to get home. There's just one problem. The closer they get to their goal, the less certain Steve is that he wants to go home.

    Summary

    James Barnes loves to cosplay as Captain America, and not just because he's damn good at it, either. No, it's the feeling he gets when he puts on the suit, the light in people's eyes when they see him, the thrill of getting the details just right. It also helped him feel connected to New York after he moved back there for work. Well, cosplay and his landlord,Clint. So when Bucky gets an invitation to his dream cosplay event, hosted by none other than Tony Stark and judged by the Avengers themselves, he knows he has to pull out all the stops and make a new Cap cosplay: the elusive Stealth Suit. Clint turns out to be surprisingly resourceful in that endeavor, and Bucky's more than pleased with how his cosplay turns out. As the day of the event dawns, he can only hope that Steve Rogers feels the same way.

    Summary

    The prairie stretched out ahead of them, desolate and cast in long shadows, like scorch marks on the earth. Winnetou looked back over his shoulder and smiled a rare, unreserved smile, and Charlie would never be used to the beauty of this landscape, not if he lived to be a hundred years old.

    Summary

    “Mrs Lynde mentioned just this morning that Uncle Abe had predicted a snow storm,” Diana said, trying to rub the chill from Anne’s hands, to slip the rubbers from her feet and pull the sopping wet coat away from her neck all at the same time and achieving none of those things, “so naturally everybody expected the exact opposite.”

    Summary

    You'll be haunted by three spirits. The first is gonna come tomorrow when the bell tolls one. That's in the morning. The second's gonna come the next day at the same time, and the third, same again. 

    Bucky was keeping his head down in his tiny apartment in Bucharest, because that's what you did when you were a former brainwashed assassin and never knew who might be coming after you. You kept your head down, you didn't draw attention, and you tried real hard not to think about what you'd done, all while trying to piece together your fractured memory.

    But it doesn't matter how down you keep your head—once the Bureau of Christmas Spirit has you in its sights, you're getting a visit from the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. No appeal, no review, and you can't lock the doors and pretend you're not home.

    Luckily for Bucky his Ghosts have their own agenda, but whatever happens...someone's getting Scrooged.

But as weeks pass, he starts wondering whether all this time he hasn't been running away from, but towards something - the kindness of strangers, quiet fields, and a curious, yellow-eyed goshawk.

    Summary

    In the spring of 2017 three things happened that changed Sam Wilson’s life forever: First, the Accords were dissolved and all related “crimes” committed prior to their repeal were sealed and the sentences commuted. Second, one James “Bucky” Barnes (aka the Winter Soldier), came out of Cryo, was successfully deprogrammed, and chose to live with one Steven Grant Rogers (aka Captain America) as he tried to make his way in the brave new world. Third, Samuel Thomas Wilson (aka The Falcon) fell in love with Bucky Barnes. This wouldn’t ordinarily be of note, save for the fact that he was already in love (and living in glorious sin with) the previously mentioned Steve Rogers.

    Oh, and there’s also the small matter of how Sam handles his post-mission adrenaline drop. (Hint: he doesn’t.)
