    Summary

    He comes in like the others, with tired feet and a dusty leather jacket, cracked from old age, weather-worn hair he pulls back off his face, and a name he needs to outrun.

    He looks like a man who wants to be forgotten, except for bright blue eyes that he can’t quite hide and a little cleft in his chin that becomes more pronounced when he smiles.

    He hasn’t smiled for a long time, though.

    The man sits at the bar and waits.

    He doesn’t know who he’s waiting for, but he does know what.

    Someone to smuggle him to the Citadel, the heart of HYDRA, so he can help cut off its head and blow up the rest.

    Summary

    Steve has come to spend a quiet winter in a distant farmhouse in Sweden. The farm comes with a cat, goats -- and a tomte, the spirit of the first farmer to settle in the land. You can guess what happens next.

    (In all incarnations, Bucky is good with goats, it turns out.)

    There’s a pause, and Bucky’s voice is very, very soft when he says, “Nonexistent.”

    Summary

    “…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook…

    ...Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been."

    Summary

    Best friends since childhood, Steve and Bucky had danced around their feelings for years. Steve had finally decided it was time to tell him. But then Bucky disappeared.

    It's been four years when an explicit video online reveals Bucky in a position Steve would never have anticipated. Now he's faced with a very different Bucky to the one he remembered, and very few ideas on how to fix things. But this is Bucky, and Steve would do anything to help him.
