    Summary

    Natasha put her phone down on the desk and pushed it to the opposite edge for them to see. A video was playing, watermarked with the webzine logo for Superhero Sleuth, an internet trash site that normally peddled ridiculous rumors and crazy conspiracy theories. But this video was simple, unfiltered fact: grainy, poorly lit fact, but still, unmistakably Bucky and Sam, showing that one moment Bucky had been trying to bury in the back of his brain for the last three days. Bucky felt his stomach drop to his shoes as he watched it. God, he really did maul the guy, no wonder Sam looked so shaken by it.

    “Wow, that’s very… passionate,” Sayuri offered.

    Bucky closed his eyes and wondered how, after decades of brainwashing, cryogenics, and torture, that this was the closest he ever felt to being in hell.

    OR, the one where the world's newest version of the Avengers is great at everything, except talking to each other about their feelings. Too bad a cellphone video is going to make them do it.

    Summary

    “This—it’s a bad time. For you, it’s a bad time, I should’ve called—” Sam said.

    “What’s wrong?” Bucky asked.

    “I’m clearly freaking him out, dipshit. You should probably do something about that,” the woman said, speaking around a mouth full of peanut butter.

    Bucky closed his eyes, as if asking some higher power for patience. “Sam, this is Yelena Belova.” He opened his eyes and took a step to one side of the door, offering a silent invitation for Sam to come inside. “She’s a Widow.”

    ***

    OR, the one where Yelena joins the team, and Sam has to deal with some feelings he'd been previously ignoring.

    Summary

    A tendril of something joyous and sweet circled in Sam’s chest, threatening to bust out in a beaming smile. He managed it down into something closer to a smirk. “Are you mother henning me right now?”

    But Bucky didn’t rise to the jab. His expression stayed open and concerned. “Someone’s got to. You just signed up to be the first responder to the world at large, and you play it like No Big Deal. You need to have someone looking out for you.”

    There it was. That camaraderie. That Brothers In Arms Mentality. It was wonderful, and it was awful, and it was why Sam loved him and why he wouldn’t ever dare say it out loud.

     
    OR, the one where Sam inherits the Avengers Compound and decides it's time to put together a new team.

    Easier said than done.

    Summary

    Bucky rolled his eyes. “I haven’t been able to get drunk in almost eighty years, Sam. I don’t care if Madripoor’s vodka does taste like bleach-soaked underwear, it’s still just vodka.”
     
    “Actually, in point of fact, I do not believe you have ingested vodka at all.” Zemo spoke as though he had always been a part of their conversation and not just randomly materialized with no warning.

    “If you could go ten minutes without spooking the shit outta me, I’d appreciate it,” Sam said archly.

    OR, that time that Bucky accidentally got high at Sharon's party and Sam was there to watch.

    Summary

    Tony hadn’t even noticed it at first; except, no, that wasn’t right, he definitely noticed. He just wrote it off.

    The pain came from anxiety, from stress, from the unbelievably sick sense of dread that hung over him during the entire flight to Siberia. It was easy to believe. Then he got a vibranium shield straight to the chest, and he blamed the itching, searing sensation on electrical burns. It wasn’t until days later, the ache in his breast just one in a long list of dulled bruises, that he bothered to look in a mirror, and saw the single star.

    Summary

    The knee jerk impulse to be annoyed at anyone fretting over him warred with Tony’s intense desire to have Steve pay him any attention at all. Tony Stark was addicted to attention: anyone could tell you that, and he didn’t bother to deny it. He had turned attention seeking into an art form, had a seemingly never ending arsenal of tactics and zero compunction about using any of them. He needled, he wheedled, he whined, he groused; he used his words, he used his body, and when all else failed he broke down to childhood habits and just invented something.

    And none of them worked on Steve.

    OR that time the Avengers were a Collegiate Fencing Team and still emotional disasters.

    Summary

    Road trips were the best. Clint would stand by that with his dying breath. Not because he liked driving (he really didn’t) or because he liked the open road (he was ambivalent) or because of a sense of freedom or zen or whatever some people got (he felt none of those things).

    Road trips were the best because of road trip snacks.

    OR... The time that Clint accidentally tried to make Bucky run off the highway with the power of innuendo.

    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes was told he would be doing press and community outreach as part of his prosthetic program, no one mentioned to him it would involve dressing up like an Elf from the North Pole.

    The hella cute blonde elf in head to toe purple hadn't been brought up either.

    Hiding in his hoodie wasn't going to be an option, was it?

    Summary

    There were many potential disasters to befall an average weirdo high school student; when one had an active imagination and a love for John Hughes films, as Jughead Jones did, you sort of assumed you had foresaw the possibilities. Plus, after solving a sordid murder and joining a gang, he really thought he gone through his fair share of teenaged trauma.

    Having to fake a relationship to save his best friend from dedicating his life to a mafia and getting punched repeatedly in the process definitely had not crossed his mind before now.

    Summary

    Jughead finally allowed his duffel bag to slide off of his shoulder to the floor. He reached out toward the keycard, his fingers hovering just next to hers without actually grasping the plastic.

    “I’m gonna be controlling the streaming media on that television at least 80% of the time it’s on,” he said. Whether it was a promise or a threat was up for argument.

    “As purchaser of all said streaming media, I reserve the right to veto when I’m present,” Veronica countered with an arched eyebrow.

    “One veto override per day,” Jughead shot back. Her second eyebrow joined the first and he rolled his eyes. “Fine, once per week.”

    Which is how Jughead Jones and Veronica Lodge ended up in quarantine together.

    Summary

    Veronica leaned to one side, trying to get a view down to the hallway where the bedrooms were. But the cabin was quiet and still, except for Jughead’s rummaging. “Is everything okay?”

    “Fine,” Jughead replied quickly. Too quickly, for sure. “Everything’s fine.”

    Summary

    “Tell me again how we’re so different in this scenario,” she repeated bitterly, her hands dropping her phone on the table in order to wrap around her arms. The fire that had been in her eyes just moments ago was completely doused, swimming instead with a loneliness that felt all too familiar in Jughead’s gut. He had spent the last year liking Veronica for the most part, even appreciating her at times, but he was honest when he said they didn’t actually know each other well. Right now, he realized perhaps he had avoided knowing her any better. Some primal part of him sensed something too close to his own damaged sense of self. Veronica may have gotten the hugs from her mother that Jughead still longed for from his own, but now he saw the kind of love and validation she missed out on. She was affection starved; so much so, that she didn’t know what to do with it when it finally arrived in her life.

    Or, Jughead and Veronica finally bond like they really already should have.

    Summary

    Jughead thought this weekend away was going to end up being a bad idea as soon as Veronica opened the liquor cabinet.

    He was sure of it when Betty convinced him to get into the hot tub.

    He was ready to hide his head in the fucking sand when Archie declared a game of truth or dare.
