    Summary

    Bucky sets down the violin case carefully on the couch. When he takes out the instrument, he hesitates with the violin already resting against his collarbone.

    It might be rude. Overstepping.

    On the other hand… Bucky glances up at the ceiling. JARVIS can keep a secret. No one else would have to know.

    -

    They say music brings people together. They're not wrong; this impromptu performance might be the start of a beautiful friendship.

    Summary

    The agent stares at him with a strange expression, so Loki specifies, bewildered. “Are you blind? There’s only one Asgardian here with a companion so obviously falling for him.”

    Something flickers through Mobius’ face, too fast for Loki to try and decipher its meaning, before the man coughs and agrees, “Only one, you’re right.”

    Loki huffs at him. Mobius is being even more obtuse than usual.

    -

    When Loki and Mobius try to track the rogue variant, they’re not surprised to find a Thor on Midgard. Thor’s feelings for his mortal companion are a surprise, though – and Loki can sense their mutual pining from miles away. How could anyone possibly be so oblivious?

    Summary

    Steve doesn't think twice when he agrees to help Tony out, even if it kills him inside to attend a gala as Tony's fake date. Tony doesn't know if he can keep up the pretense on this evening out as friends but it's as close as he can get to an actual date, so he takes it.

    Things don't go as planned though, with all the pining, the pent-up feelings, and bumping into Tony's horrible, obnoxious ex, Ty Stone.

    Summary

    “You’re a civilian now. With your history, the government needs to know that you’re not gonna…” Raynor drifts off, making a ridiculous gesture that’s presumably meant to imitate his metal arm swinging.

    Bucky thinks of the bodies left in his wake yesterday - unconscious, not dead, he doesn’t do that anymore. Of the damaged plate in his wrist he spent all evening fixing. Of a flash drive full of intel he left at a dead drop near the Brooklyn Bridge.

    Yeah, the government needs something, alright.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers nie miał ulubieńców. Był opiekunem w przedszkolu w Allensville od czasu, kiedy skończył studia, i faworyzowanie podopiecznych stało w całkowitej sprzeczności z jego poglądami odnośnie do wychowywania najmłodszych.

    Ale ‒ na miłość boską ‒ przez Petera Starka miał olbrzymie problemy z trzymaniem się swoich przekonań.

    Summary

    “Hey, Barnes. Enjoying the Tower so far?” Clint greets. He braces for the charm and the blinding smile in one, two...

    It never comes.

    Barnes' expression is luke-warm at best; calculating would probably be a better word. The man shrugs. “Sure,” he says and turns away.

     

    When Bucky Barnes comes to the Tower, Clint expects a sniper buddy and bonding time at the range. What he gets is an asshole who seems determined to antagonize Clint while charming the pants off the rest of the team. And that's just the beginning.

    Summary

    He used to dream about having his own room when he was a kid, but this? It’s too much space for a single person. Neither Steve nor Asta know what to do with it so they hang around the communal areas whenever possible.

    “This modern privacy feels too much like loneliness,” Asta remarks as they lie on their too-wide, too-soft bed.


    Steve is used to sharing a bed with his mother and later Bucky to get through the cold winter but hasn't had anyone to share with in a long time. His daemon decides to fix this.

    Summary

    ‒ Jakie jest twoje ulubione posunięcie szachowe? ‒ pyta nagle Costello, zupełnie nie zwracając uwagi na tykający zegar ani na rosnący na tyłach widowni gwar.

    ‒ Co?

    Czy Costello próbuje go rozproszyć nieistotnymi pytaniami? Prowadzenie rozmów w czasie gry nie jest zabronione, ale rzadko się je spotyka. Podobne próby wytrącenia przeciwnika z jego skupienia są uważane za niesportowe. Costello pokazał już jednak, jak mało obchodzą go społeczne normy.

    ‒ Wymyśliłem własną strategię szachową, wiesz? ‒ mówi Costello, przynajmniej pozornie nie zdając sobie sprawy z niepokoju Bucky'ego. ‒ Chcę ją nazwać gambitem kochanka, sądzisz, że się przyjmie?

    Summary

    “What’s your favourite chess move?” the man asks suddenly, not at all minding that his clock is ticking, or that the voices in the back grow louder.

    “What?”

    Is Costello trying to distract him from the game with small talk? Conversations aren’t forbidden by the rules, but they’re not common; they’re considered ungentlemanly when used to detract the opponent. On the other hand, Costello doesn’t seem to pay too much attention to the social norms; this much is clear.

    Oblivious to Bucky’s internal alarm, Costello carries on. “I came up with a chess move of my own, you know? I think I’ll call it a lover’s gambit. Do you think it will catch on?”

    Summary

    "Tomorrow, Tony," Steve clasps Tony's shoulder and smiles, and Tony melts a little bit and finds himself nodding before the words can fully register. "Meet me at ten, we're going to find us a perfect Christmas tree."

    Summary

    ‒ Ta kolęda jest bez sensu – zauważyła Pepper.

    ‒ „Cicha noc”? – upewnił się Steve.

    ‒ Nie ma opcji, w żadnym ze światów naszego multiwersum, żeby kobieta rodząca bez znieczulenia na stogu siana była cicho. Ni cholery – wyjaśniła, dokładając kostki Scrabble na planszę. – Ksenofob. Siedemdziesiąt dwa punkty.

    ‒ Nigdy się nad tym nie zastanawiałem – przyznał Steve. – A tak poza tym, to cię nienawidzę.

    Pepper zachichotała i uśmiechnęła się do niego szeroko.

    ‒ To rzeczywiście nie jest coś, nad czym zastanawialiby się nieposiadający macicy. Ale mówię ci, poród Morgan można opisać wieloma różnymi słowami, a jednak „cichy” na pewno nie znalazłby się na liście.

    Summary

    Clint fights the urge to cross his arms, keeping them hanging loosely by his sides instead, and forces himself to relax his shoulders. It’s just a small precaution in case he needs to react fast but, god, he hopes it doesn’t come to that. He doubts any precaution that doesn’t include a loaded weapon would help him last more than a minute.

    He watches the man sitting across the kitchen table from him, curled in on himself under Clint’s warmest blanket with his hands wrapped around a steaming cup of coffee, and tries to wrap his head around the very unusual, very alarming situation he has gotten himself into.

    Bucky Barnes plays for a rival team, but that doesn't stop him being intrigued by the daring Hufflepuff. Who is that guy, and how is he still alive?

    Summary

    The trees ready themselves for winter; their leaves are in all possible colours: greens, reds, oranges and browns. The wide variety of species makes the view even more stunning. Each of them turns to slightly different shades, each going through the transformation at their own pace. Their perfect blend is truly photo-inspiring.

    That reminds Peter that he came here with one more goal in mind. He wouldn’t want to disappoint Captain America. He fishes the camera out of his backpack; he won’t be missing a perfect shot because he isn’t prepared.

    Summary

    This time the stranger is fully in Clint's view when he appears.

    "Do you want my help?"

    "Right," Clint mumbles bitterly, "and if I agreed, what would you ask in return?"

    "Your soul," the man replies with an impressive deadpan, and Clint huffs an honest laugh.

    "Yeah, man, I don't think my soul is worth that much," he says with a self-depreciating chuckle. "Guess I'll have to manage on my own."

    Summary

    Steve spends a lot of time watching Tony.

    At first, Steve judged the man as little more than a self-absorbed narcissist. He should've known better than to underestimate a Stark; he soon sees the man's brilliance, the ingenuity of his inventions. He holds his breath, witnessing Tony's sacrifice in New York's battle. He fights by his side, their moves seamlessly in sync without any prior discussion.

    If that wouldn't be enough to change Steve's mind, he experiences the man's generosity when Tony invites them to live in the Tower. He sees a caring man with a workaholic streak, a hero, a genius truly ahead of his time. As he studies the man, Steve begins to notice who Tony Stark really is.

    But that is not all he notices.

    Summary

    Bucky feels queasy spying, but he wants to know and, despite the unease, takes a silent step to his right to get a better view of Clint's hands. He's not an expert, he might be getting some words wrong but his best guess...

    '—I have you I don't know what to do without you'

    He can't see what Natasha signs back. Compared to Clint’s wide gestures of a man clearly used to this kind of communication, Nat's signing seems to be sharp and precise, though quick. Hawkeye hums when he replies to whatever she said:

    'I know I know but with the nightmares I don't have anyone else to turn to'

    Bucky doesn't need to eavesdrop anymore. He knows now that Clint doesn't trust him. Silently as always, he turns on the heel and leaves, unnoticed.
