    Summary

    Rococo curls slid over his brow in a charming cascade. It all looked very contrived. Steve didn’t buy it, really. “You, a ‘fallen angel’, can’t leave a cathedral?”

    “A cruel irony. I’ve been waiting for you for a very long time,” the being smiled sweetly at the floor.

    “Waiting for me? Specifically for me?” Steve folded his arms.

    The slightly owlish gaze lifted again, “I don’t reveal myself to just anyone.”

     
    Steve Rogers is restless and alone one night when he stumbles upon something even more supernatural than he’s used to in a deserted cathedral. Suddenly bible stories don’t seem so fanciful when there’s a very real angel standing alone at the altar, tragic and begging him for help.

    Summary

    Sometimes, Bucky thinks Steve is beyond such emotions, beyond petty humanity. But he’s not beyond this—pleasure burns in fiery blue eyes as he takes Bucky. And he’s not beyond the possessive fervor that lights his touch when his hands slide over Bucky’s face and throat, when his fingers curl into soft hair and press bruises into yielding skin.

    Bucky hasn’t been loved in a very long time, and he’s forgotten how it felt, but he doesn’t think anyone has ever loved him the way Steve loves him.

    Steve loves like his desire could devour worlds. But all he’s got is Bucky; how is one man enough?

    “But you are.”

    Bucky’s not sure if he said that out loud, or if Steve’s in his mind again, a part of Bucky in ways he can’t articulate, can’t even understand.

    “Worlds wouldn’t be enough,” Steve says, lips pressing to Bucky’s, burning like fire. “You are.”


    Bucky’s guardian angel is wreathed in shadows, not light.
