    Summary

    Someone requested a story where Tony has a shy/withdrawn child that had trouble warming up to the other Avengers, but likes Bucky right away. Their friendship helps Bucky heal post Winter Soldier. Combined with a prompt asking for nerd love, where Bucky had read the Hobbit back in the day, and Tony introduces him to Lord of the Rings.

     

    “Fake it till you make it,” Bucky whispered to himself, swallowing around his panic. Sam had drilled the idea into him, and it had become a mantra of sorts, something to hold onto when all he wanted to do was blend into the shadows and disappear.

    “You’ll be fine.”

    Steve placed a warm, strong hand on Bucky’s shoulder and squeezed, his super soldier ears having picked up Bucky uttering the now familiar saying.

    Bucky nodded, tried to believe his own words, and followed Steve onto the common floor, a wall of sound hitting them as they entered.

    Summary

    “The feelings that hurt most, the emotions that sting most, are those that are absurd—the longing for impossible things, precisely because they are impossible; nostalgia for what never was; the desire for what could have been; regret over not being someone else; dissatisfaction with the world’s existence. All these half-tones of the soul’s consciousness create in us a painful landscape, an eternal sunset of what we are.” — Fernando Pessoa, The Book of Disquiet

    Summary

    “You know,” Tony mumbles, because Tony never stops talking. “When you say shit like - like that, it’s… It’s hard.” His voice is slurred now, his eyes closed, as if he’s not even sure he’s still saying anything aloud. “Because I know I should believe you, but I – I wanna believe it so bad, so fucking much, that it feels like I shouldn’t. Like, the second I believe it, the other shoe’s gonna drop, and you’re gonna find out you don’t mean it.”

    Or: Five Times Steve told Tony he loved him, and one time he didn't need to.

    Summary

    Being a fugitive was not going to stop Steve from meeting with Tony to fix what happened between them. He just needed to avoid getting caught, which was a lot more complicated when New York was under attack. What Steve needed was a quick disguise so that he could help without being recognized...

    Excerpt:
    His T-shirt was hanging in tatters and even his pants were badly ripped from the trip through the glass window and the spider’s attack. It was a spot of good luck that he had crashed into some sort of costume shop then, Steve realized as he looked around. There were all kinds of clothing everywhere, mainly black and in some sort of fake leather.
