    Summary

    Unemployed artist Steve takes a job managing the worst coffee shop in Brooklyn, where the floors are greasy, the coffee beans have expired, the espresso machine’s been sabotaged, and the owners might be Russian Mafia. But the job comes with a few perks, like a generous paycheck, reasonable hours, and one super-hot customer whom Steve can’t resist having dirty, filthy, bad-idea sex with in the bathroom.

    Steve is pretty sure this job is going to kill him. But what a way to go....

    Bookmarker's Notes

    If he could keep this—this connection; this man; this safe space inside the living nightmare his life's become—Steve would give anything. Anything. The injustice of that impossibility feels like a fist around his chest, and Steve murmurs, "Please," nonsensical even to himself. Bucky kisses him deeper, cups his cheek, and holds him tight.

    Summary

    Steve wanted an apartment in Brooklyn and he wanted to fill it with the things that he loved; plants, music from a gramophone, strong coffee, Bucky. Bucky, Bucky, Bucky.

    He wonders what it would have been like if they’d never gone to the war, if they’d stayed at home and became worn out in the normal way - through living a life as it was meant to be lived; birth, work, marriage, kids, death. He wonders if he would have been this tired. He wonders if he’d have ever realised he could love anything in the world this much.

    One day he’ll have to lose everything all over again, and the only memories he will have made will be of the gritty fight, all his life, the barest shimmers of love - kissing Peggy, dancing with his mother in his kitchen when he was young, Bucky holding him upright in alleyways.

    Summary

    "HYDRA's scientists had been delighted to find their serum-reversal procedure had worked. Their jubilation was dampened by the discovery that Steve's smaller self might no longer be Captain America-sized but was still 100% Steve Rogers, and Steve Rogers was now mad enough to spit nails. A minor oversight in the design of the containment area meant that smaller-Steve had simply wriggled out of the now ridiculously-oversized restraints like an angry ferret escaping a paper bag, and punched the nearest technician in the nuts.

    Chaos ensued."

    HYDRA scientists successfully de-serum Captain America, only to discover that they are utterly unprepared for Steve Rogers. Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier follows his instructions to the letter. This works out just great.

    Summary

    The asset is not having an optimal day.

    “Our cycles are syncing,” his mission says from the other side of the exam room, quiet and apologetic. He’s standing against the wall and the asset is sitting on an exam table. They’re in . . . a tower. The asset isn’t sure why. He doesn’t feel right, overheated and over-energized, and isn’t sure about that either.

    “So you’re--my alpha, then,” he says haltingly, eyes flicking up to his mission’s face. Not his mission anymore. But always his mission, he thinks.

    “Other way around,” his mission answers with a smile that all of the asset’s training can’t decipher the full meaning behind. It looks injured, and . . . and things the asset doesn’t know.

    his mission coming in whenever he liked--there are worse ways to be decommissioned. And it would feel good, being someplace like that.

    He wonders if that’s the end of the line.
