  1. Summary

    She’s lived a long life, a very long life. Didn’t matter which way you cut it. In that time she was bound to bump into a familiar face or two. Perhaps even a man who made a habit of wearing multiple faces over the course of time. The appearance didn't matter she'd (nearly) always recognize him, even if he didn't always recognize her.

  2. Summary

    She had no idea just how old she was exactly. Nobody put much thought into the passage of time and marking down dates back then. There was no record of her birth. There were very few records that managed to survive that could contain records of her early years. The oldest manuscript that could pertain to her was death notice in a family's bible from Aberdeen.
    A date of death: 5 of June 1115
    She picked that as her birthday (not entirely inaccurate – since she had returned to life shortly after dying) and figured her age based on that. The death record stated she had died in childbirth at nineteen but she had no way of knowing just how long she’d been nineteen exactly. Her memory of her youth was just as spottily reliable as the surviving records from the mid-12th century.
    If she had really been nineteen that would make her year of birth 1096; either way you cut it by 2015 she was (at least) 900 years old. Regardless, she believed it was rude to ask a woman her age; which would explain why she often changed it to suit her needs. When it looked like you were going to live forever – and not (noticeably) lose your good looks – then why put a number on it?

    Summary

    It cut Bucky to the core and he hated that more than anything. That as much as he could let Steve down, as he could get things wrong, he was still Bucky Barnes enough to care so very much about Steve Rogers.

    “Steve,” Bucky said with a tired sigh, “please not tonight. I can’t do it tonight.”

    “Can’t do what?” Steve asked.

    “I can’t pretend tonight. I can’t be someone I don’t remember how to be, not tonight. Try me again tomorrow. I’ll muster it up, I swear. But tonight, I am so tired, pal.”

    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes decided to take a job with the TSA working nights at baggage claim, he fully anticipated his job to consist of answering dumb questions (“The luggage is behind you, sir”) and sitting on his uncomfortable chair while keeping an eye out for any suspicious behavior.

    To his aggravation, however, once it was revealed that Captain America had arrived from the 1940s through ice-travel, Bucky’s routine starts to include “Villain Babysitter”, as wannabe villains begin coming through the airport in hopes of destroying Cap. As a point of professional pride, Bucky takes it upon himself to keep them from leaving the airport.

    At least until someone above his pay grade can come by and deal with them.

    He did not expect that someone to be Steve Rogers himself.

    Steve, who for some reason, likes coming to the airport. Given that the man is a national treasure, from his smooth mouth to his patriotic ass, who is Bucky to argue?

    Summary

    “Why would he actively try and fuck up a building that he and his men are constructing? You really that narcissistic to think the guy is giving blood, sweat, and tears just to fuck up your project?” Sam asks incredulously.

    “Every time Sam, without fail, every time I go to that site something is wrong, or something is being built that wasn’t in my fucking plans. I can’t go to the site every day and watch over his shoulder, I’ve got other buildings going up!” Steve sighs, throwing his hands up. Steve was fortunate enough to hit the ground running after school and has become one of the youngest architect to achieve his level of success – a level that warrants him being contracted by Tony Stark personally to work on his namesake – so Steve can’t fuck this up.

    More importantly, Steve can’t let Barnes fuck this up.

    Summary

    "That big enough for you?" is all Steve can say. It's thick around and red at the top, then white and blue.

    Bucky's eyes go to his, warm and teasing. "Think I can handle it."

     

    (Written for the this prompt: "Bucky drives Steve crazy with lust by eating phallic food in front of him.”)
