    Summary

    Everyone has a soulmate. Everyone.

    Since the counsel has been keeping records, there has been one exception to that rule, and considering the man, no one was very surprised. After all, Captain America, ne Steve Rogers, was the exception to all the rules.

    So when he plunged into the Atlantic in a plane loaded with enough explosives to take out the entire Eastern Seaboard, the nation mourned him, but the counsel breathed a sigh of relief. Their perfect record - a soulmate for everyone - was intact.
    .
    When Bucky is five or six or seven, he has his first bonding dream.

    Summary

    "Well," Bucky says, his tone low and brimming with promise, "you won't really know if you're into guys unless you try it."

    Steve swallows hard, his eyes flicking to Bucky's mouth. "As in... try what?"

    "Tell you what." Bucky reaches across the bar and cups Steve's jaw, ghosting the pad of his thumb over Steve's full, red lips. Steve quivers. "I was thinking about shutting down early tonight. If you'll give me ten minutes to close up, I'll take you upstairs to my place and let you try whatever the hell you want."

    Or, the AU in which Bucky is a bartender who offers Steve service with much more than a smile.

    Summary

    The most humbling lesson the universe has to teach is this: all things start small.

    Bucky's been out of HYDRA's grasp for two years, he remembers his life, he's making peace with himself, and he's carved his own space in Avengers tower. It's a good life, he thinks.

    The most honest lesson the universe has to teach is this: all things start small.

    Of all people, it's Tony, who posits that maybe Steve isn't as okay as he would have everyone believe. Of all people, it isn't Bucky who realizes that Steve doesn't really smile anymore.

    The most extraordinary lesson the universe has to teach is this: all things start small.

    It's bits and pieces of hearts lost to war. It's second and third and fourth and fifth chances. It's SteveandBucky and BuckyandSteve. It's them.

    Summary

    Coulson, for his part, stares up at Bucky with such a betrayed look of frozen horror that Natasha actually goes the extra step and presses another button, capturing the moment and airdropping the photograph to her phone for posterity. When he speaks, his voice comes out as a hoarse whisper. “Why…?” He swallows and starts again, trying for some semblance of normality. “...Why would you tweet something like that?!”

    “If you must know, sir,” and somehow he manages to make ‘sir’ come out with the same inflection most people reserve for ‘motherfucking son of a bitch’, “it’s because I have a difficult time doing my job when my job involves monitoring the man with the best fucking ass in the United States of America.” He slowly lowers himself back into his seat until he’s at eye level, making extreme eye contact with Coulson until Coulson turns away to make mortified eye contact in Natasha’s general direction through the one-way glass. Natasha would take another picture, if she weren’t too busy catching Steve’s red-faced sputtering. “Sometimes, I vent to my Twitter followers. Sometimes, it’s about hot men with washboard abs. Can I go now, or do you need a graphic description of how I pleasure myself at night?”
