    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is a former sergeant, honourably discharged after being seriously injured, turned custom furniture maker. With his studio in Red Hook, his brownstone in Brooklyn, and his memories of his time in Afghanistan, his life may not be the easiest but at least it's quiet. When the new neighbours move in, he doesn't expect his life or Jack's (dog/best friend/good listener/chewer of sneakers) to change all that much. That was before he befriended the blond neighbour, the one who seemed like he might have been born a couple of hundred years ago. The blond guy that, if he wasn't so oblivious, Bucky might have noticed had a lot in common with Captain America. Alas, nothing comes easy in Bucky's life. Not even love.

    Summary

    Steve scoffs and smiles down at Bucky - it looks mostly indulgent, and little pitiful, but Bucky will take that if nothing else. "You think you're real cute, don't you kid?"
    Yeah, that - that shouldn't feel as good as it does, sending sparks up his spine and the back of his neck.
    "I think I'm doing alright."
    Steve juts his chin out. "Is that what you usually do? Roll your pretty eyes and half-ass a pick-up line?" Bucky’s reeling, but he’s not going to let the chance slip away.
    “You think my eyes are pretty?” Steve’s grin widens and Bucky is so fucking pleased to learn that Captain America takes teasing like a champ.

    Or,

    How to date Steve Rogers and deal with Captain America through musical education and an apartment in Brooklyn.

    Summary

    Before he was Captain America, he was Steve Rogers, knobby kneed and wild-eyed, with scrapes on his knuckles and a book in his hands.

    In 1942, he leaves for war and eventually crashes the Valkyrie.

    That's only the beginning of his story.

    In 2011, Steve's body is dragged from ice off the coast of Greenland.

    In 2015, he meets a bookstore clerk.

    This is what happens when a superhero loses his way home and the only way back is through the Yellow Book Road.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers did not anticipate his composure going to hell and back because of a pair of blue eyes.

    Or, a story about how a cup of coffee can give you more than just a fleeting burst of energy you don’t know how to utilize.
