    Summary

    Tony’s got a company to innovate for, a caffeine habit, and a particularly persistent stalker. He thought getting a big dog might discourage the stalker. He got Bucky, and so much more than he ever bargained for.

    Bucky killed the wrong man, and now he’s got a year to prove that he’s changed his ways before the werewolf curse consumes his soul as well as his body. He was just looking for a way to get through the year. He wasn’t counting on Tony.

    Summary

    For this anonymous prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "How about anything with tsum tsums in it? I love them! Soulmates AU where you are born with your soulmate's tsum? Or tsums are like daemons? The little guys are the ones to fall in love first? Anything goes, really!"

    The Asset called the creatures 'Soft Pills', because he had to take pills often enough that he recognized the shape. He knew there was another name for them, something like 'Sum', but no one ever told him.

    He liked the soft pills. They were warm and nice to touch and made pleasant noises. He didn't have one of his own, but that was reasonable. He didn't have a soul, so how could he have a Soulmate? The little creatures appeared for humans; not weapons. But sometimes, if he'd done very, very well on a mission, one of his Handlers would let him hold their pill for a little while.

    Summary

    “You’re kind of a weird one, aren’t you?” 

    Bucky gasps, all mock-offense. “We’re rolling with the insults today, aren’t we?”

    Steve flushes again, shoulders tight. “Sorry. Just… Sorry.”

    Bucky’s expression softens, and he goes with his gut as he reaches a hand out, fingers grazing the back of Steve’s hand on the table. Steve’s skin is warm, just as Bucky thought it would be. “It’s okay. It’s actually kind of nice knowing you can match my level of asshole.”

    Today, of all days, is the day Bucky is going to meet the love of his life. Imagine his surprise when it turns out to be Captain America.
    Or: The Adventures of Bucky Barnes, the Shitty Psychic.

    Summary

    The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

    Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.
