    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes decided to take a job with the TSA working nights at baggage claim, he fully anticipated his job to consist of answering dumb questions (“The luggage is behind you, sir”) and sitting on his uncomfortable chair while keeping an eye out for any suspicious behavior.

    To his aggravation, however, once it was revealed that Captain America had arrived from the 1940s through ice-travel, Bucky’s routine starts to include “Villain Babysitter”, as wannabe villains begin coming through the airport in hopes of destroying Cap. As a point of professional pride, Bucky takes it upon himself to keep them from leaving the airport.

    At least until someone above his pay grade can come by and deal with them.

    He did not expect that someone to be Steve Rogers himself.

    Steve, who for some reason, likes coming to the airport. Given that the man is a national treasure, from his smooth mouth to his patriotic ass, who is Bucky to argue?

    Summary

    Bucky laughs and grins and feels giddiness spread through him, the loose leaves by the ground rising up in response to his magic. His wolf sees it and growls and runs to the leaves, leaping in the air, trying to catch them.

    Bucky laughs until he’s breathless, his magic loose and bright and spinning through the woods.

    “Come on,” Bucky calls out to his wolf, a grin still playing at his lips. “Let me show you the forest.”

    Summary

    The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

    Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.

    Summary

    “Did you hear Trevor’s got a new boyfriend?” Ellie asks as she passes the bottle to Julie, shooting a vaguely judgemental look across the roof at where Trevor and the rest of the more obnoxious cousins are gathered into a loud, obnoxious circle.

    “It’ll last ten minutes before he realizes Trevor’s an asshole.” Julie says as she takes a long drink, “Is he cute?”

    “I guess? In like, a weird old fashioned grandpa way. Uncle James smiled at him and he smiled back.” Ellie’s voice is hushed- awe struck. Which is understandable. Last time Uncle James smiled at Julie she thought she glimpsed the shadowy void of the afterlife.

    “Wait. Wait. Trevor brought his new boyfriend to New Years? What kind of idiot-”

     

    AKA the Cryptid Uncle AU!
