    Summary

    This was what “retirement” looked like: an apartment in their old neighborhood in Brooklyn, with big windows and wooden floors. Three bedrooms – one for Bucky, one for Steve, and one for guests, usually Sam or Nat, or very occasionally, Clint. A small but serviceable kitchen. Soft couches. Down comforters. Bucky had expected Steve to be a whirlwind of activity, volunteering with the VA or the fire department or visiting local schools or whatever ex-superheroes did, but to his surprise, Steve showed no inclination towards his usual busy get-shit-done attitude.

    “I'm taking a year,” Steve said, when Bucky asked. “A year before I start thinking about what comes next. I just want to hang out, be a normal guy again, you know? Just for a little while. But if you want to find a job, or –”

    “A year of nothing sounds great,” Bucky said, and Steve grinned.

    Summary

    When SHIELD agent Bucky Barnes is sent to investigate a potential Hydra facility he doesn’t know what to expect. Walking through a door in a Hydra base and ending up in a stranger’s apartment sure wasn’t it though. And according to the skinny kid gawping at him from the fire escape, the apartment he just walked into is in Brooklyn. In 1925. What the hell?

    But Bucky isn’t the only one to have made his way through the door. And the more he gets caught up in Hydra’s plot to change the past the more he begins to wonder – what could Hydra possibly want with a skinny kid like Steve Rogers?

    Summary

    After Bucky was released from the hospital, it only took him a couple of weeks to give up on himself. Difficult to believe in any kind of future when the simple act of staying alive was almost too big an effort.

    Out the frosted window, across the street, there was a tiny homeless guy burrowing under an awning.

    Summary

    Steve lives a quiet life apprenticing for an aging artist in the little country estate where he was sent upon the death of his mother, an assistant healer at court. But with trouble brewing in the realm, and the royal city — where Bucky lives — taken over by a dark and powerful force, Steve sets out on an adventure to save the kingdom, rescue a captive prince, and be reunited with his one, true love.

     

    But Steve knows the truth in his bones; if people are in danger, he has to try and help. If Bucky is in that city, Steve just can't sit there safe. It doesn't matter what the risk is, and it doesn't matter what his chances are. Steve whispers to the stars, "When you love someone -- when you love someone -- you never give up."
