    Summary

    At 43, James Barnes is a washed up old man. He’s got a dozen Grammys in the hall closet, an agent that can’t get him a deal, a decade-old case of writer’s block, a moody teen-aged daughter, and the gorgeous actress Natasha Romanova for an ex-wife. Well, one of them anyway. He’s a man who’s given up on finding joy in his life, and if it wasn’t for his kid, he’d have probably found a way to quit the world a long time ago.

    Enter Steven Grant Rogers, struggling twenty-something, orphan, and someone who has no idea who Barnes is, other than some musician his mom liked a lot.
    The two men meet by accident, doing nothing more than passing the time in a quiet bar. But when a pap gets a shot of the two men embracing, Bucky takes it as a chance to finally come out as bisexual, and his agent makes him a proposition: Ten new songs and one very sweet boyfriend will get him a new record deal that will maybe, just maybe put him back on top.

    Now all he has to do is write the songs, convince the kid, and not fall in love. Should be easy, right?

    Summary

    “It’s dumb,” Steve shakes his head. “People are stupid for turning this place away as quickly as they did in the past. S’been through a lot of owners.”

    That piques Sam’s interest even more. His eyebrows lift and he looks around. “Someone die here or something?”

    “Actually,” Steve murmurs, pulling the sleeves of his sweatshirt down over his hands. He takes in the apartment before him with a nervous smile. “Legend says it’s haunted.”

    Summary

    "Look, dude, I get it. You’re fucked-up. HYDRA fucked you up. I’ve been there. But you’re my fucking Soul Mate!"

    “I can kill you. I could kill you without even realizing what I was doing. I’m not fucked-up, I’m a monster. I’m a nightmare. You can’t be here. You can’t- All the people I’ve killed- I will not murder my Soul Mate too. Not after everything else I’ve-”

    Clint worked his left hand between their bodies and managed to land a punch to the man’s right side, forcing him to shift his weight, and Clint brought his right hand down on the place where the man’s metal arm met his torso - hidden by the shirt he wore, but on full display in the video Clint had watched.

    The man released Clint with a grunt of pain, and Clint pressed his advantage, landing another punch to his abdomen, backing him up against the opposite side of the RV and then pressing the kitchen knife he had pocketed while cleaning up earlier to the man’s throat.

    “Like I said, I’m not a Boy Scout. I’m plenty dangerous myself. We clear on that?”

    Summary

    Agent Phil Coulson has always been entirely honest with his parents about his work. He hasn’t necessarily gone into detail, but they know enough. The one thing he will wax poetic about is his asset Clint Barton, the sniper known as Hawkeye. When a mission gone wrong affords Clint a look into the mysterious hidden life of his favorite handler, Mama Coulson gets a look of her own at the man who's so obviously captured her son's heart.

    She for one couldn’t be happier - but these two boys need all the help they can get.

    After all, Mama Coulson knows best.

    Summary

    “What do you do with your friends?” Bucky asks finally, looking back at the doc.
    There’s a surprised pause, and Doc Adams looks like he’s thinking. Wondering how much will incriminate him, perhaps. Worrying about giving away personal information to the Winter Soldier. Bucky’s 90% sure Grant Adams is a fake name anyway, and he knows that people aren’t certain he’s been de-programmed. God forbid the infamous assassin finds out where his shrink lives.
    “We have monthly game nights,” the doc says. “Get together, get some drinks and snacks, maybe order pizza.”
    “Games?” Bucky repeats blankly. “Like what, Monopoly?” That’s a game that isn’t going to make him any friends. Doc Adams looks a little embarrassed. “What?”
    “Well, mostly… Tabletop gaming. Dungeons and dragons, that sort of thing.”
    “Dungeons and what?” Bucky stares at him. Is his therapist into kinky, BDSM sex shit with his friends? If he is, Bucky’s first instinct is to think the future is way more open-minded than he realised, and his second instinct is to move his therapist further up in his estimation. The guy’s clearly way more interesting than he’s realised.
