    Summary

    Bucky's in Steve's apartment when he comes home.

    (It warms him, though, to think of Bucky using his apartment, that he might feel comfortable there regardless of how he got in. It makes Steve happy to know that Bucky's been able to eat decent food and get clean, hopefully feel safe enough to sleep. And the fact that Bucky went to Steve's apartment, out of all the thousands he could have chosen anywhere in New York City…

    Well, Steve doesn't want to think too hard about that part, because he doesn't want to hope.)

    Summary

    You can't have amnesia if you're not supposed to remember.

    ("I don't want to forget you," Bucky says wistfully.

    Steve looks half-asleep, but he blinks and lifts his head. "What do you mean?" he asks. His smile is puzzled. "Why would you forget me?"

    "After maintenance, when they'll wipe me and put me in Cryo," Bucky explains. "I'll forget you again, and I don't want to. You're the best handler I've ever had.")

    Summary

    "Yeah, well." Tony gestures at Bucky. It should feel stranger than it does that they're both watching him sleep. Maybe more invasive, too, and Pepper thinks it probably would if she couldn't tell how concerned Tony is. "Turns out I was a little premature, when I said we all came through all right."

    Pepper looks at him. "What do you mean? What's wrong with him?" She gasps. "Is it Steve? Is that why Bucky's not with him?"

    Tony shakes his head. "Steve's fine. Well, physically fine, considering." He takes a breath. "Remember last year, when Sam and I found Bucky trashing that bank vault where Hydra'd been keeping him?"

    She nods. "You called it the 'Vault of Evil'. Oh my God, did they try to capture him?"

    "No, but it's almost as bad." He grimaces. "I'm not explaining this right. You remember why we took him to Asgard? I mean, of course you would, it was your idea. But, how he had, like, four different people running around in his head?"

    "Of course I do. But, they fixed him." Her eyes go wide at the misery in his expression. "It's been over a year…I thought they fixed him?"

    "They did fix him," Tony says. "He got broken again."

    Summary

    The higher-ups call it Operation Watchtower, but to Bucky Barnes and the rest of the men on the ground, it's Operation Pestilence. Bucky doesn't mind that much. He was the one stupid enough to enlist, after all, alongside a bunch of other guys stupid enough to enlist. It's their own damn fault they're sitting in muddy holes in the ground getting malaria and eating whatever they can steal from the dwindling Japanese food caches.

    Sometimes Bucky crunches his way through a tin of fish heads and gazes out at the sea, wondering if the US Army's forgotten them there on Guadalcanal, wondering if there's a US Army or a Navy even left to remember them or if the Japanese have won and nobody's bothered to let the GIs know. Then he decides fuck it and chucks his tin of fish heads at Foghorn because he's in the mood to wrestle and Foghorn's always up for a fight. They both come out of it laughing and a little bloody and feeling better because, hell, Bucky figured out pretty quick that living or dying is largely just a matter of chance, so why worry?

    Summary

    Steve lives in Stark Tower and doesn't have much to do when he's not going after Hydra strongholds. He attends charity events to make Pepper happy. He goes hiking with Sam. He hangs out with Clint in Bed-Stuy and watches Dog Cops. Sometimes Tony gives him super alcohol in a sippy cup. Sometimes he sees Bucky out of the corner of his eye and wonders if it's real or if he's starting to lose his mind.

    Alternately, the one with terrible jokes, a foot chase through the Lower East Side, and a tiny little robot named Shitcan.
