    Summary

    Barnes had been transferred into the precinct on an idyllic July afternoon when the sky was cloudless and the breeze was perfect, which Tony can remember because they'd been perfect conditions for plenty of time whiled away on the roof, possibly perfecting dubiously legal chemical mixtures.

    Tony had, only naturally, been curious. And he’d only grown more curious about the mysterious new arrival when he’d not brought over a single personal item for his desk (Scott, who was happily violating the ‘two items and two photographs’ rule by plastering the ceiling above his desk with pictures of his small and smiling daughter, maintained that this was unnatural and horrifying), and invariably responded with a flat negative when asked out for lunch, coffee, dinner, breakfast, tea, hot chocolate, cold chocolate, and, on one occasion, a sleepover.

    Summary

    TJ does a good deed for (mostly) altruistic reasons. But he's only human and, when you're doing that good deed for Captain America, well. Maybe there's a little attraction involved too. But TJ has some demons from his past and Steve brings the potential for more of those demons with him.

    Summary

    "Brooklyn, like I said," he replied, taking Steve's hand and shaking it, then he paused, tilted his head, and said, "Actually, since you're staff? It's Bucky."

    "Bucky," Steve repeated, feeling oddly touched.
     
    "Always Brooklyn in front of the clients, though," he added seriously.

    "No, of course," Steve promised. "Good to meet you."

    "You too," he said, glancing down to where Steve was still holding his hand.

    Steve let go with a sheepish smile. "Sorry."

    Working in a brothel wasn't somewhere Steve ever expected to find himself, but then he'd never expected to quit his shitty corporate hell-job to apprentice as a tattoo artist. Great as it was, his apprenticeship didn't come with a pay cheque, so eating and keeping a roof over his head meant finding a job that paid actual money. Which was how he'd ended up as the night receptionist in a brothel, accidentally holding Bucky's hand, with no idea Bucky was going to turn out to be something else he'd never expected.
