    Summary

    There’s a storm above. The water above him is dark, angry; he can feel the tension threading through her, holding her hostage. The water is empty of life other than him, the usual hustle and bustle tucked away safe, deep, where the wind-churned waves can’t affect them. Bucky had never claimed to be the smartest person around, and he doesn’t try to now, drifting in the storm-sea. The crystal in his trident hums at him, so he hums back, gently threading energy out of it and gifting it back to the water.

    A dark shape cuts through the water above him, and his grip instinctively tightens on the trident. It’s big, too big to be an animal, now that the whales have moved on to follow the warmth. A boat, then.

    Humans.

    OR: the fic where Bucky's king of the Mer, Steve's a human, and somehow they make it work.

    Summary

    They lay like carcasses across the landscape, giant steel skeletons telling the haunting story of a war that few remembered – and those who did, they made a point of forgetting. Dull gray angular frames jutted out of the colorless dust, so immense that it was impossible to tell their size on scale alone. Strewn around them were girders as thick as a man was tall, panels the size of passenger aircraft, and the curved, knife-like blades of gargantuan turbines. The rangefinder in his goggles reported the distance as two miles away… surely it was wrong. He had to be closer. The downed behemoths couldn’t be that big, could they?

     

    Humanity moved underground centuries ago, fleeing the devastation spreading rapidly across the planet's surface after a war that's long since been forgotten. Steve makes his money venturing out into this deadly, silent wasteland, scavenging materials and parts to sell in the underground markets. One day, he stumbles across something - someone - that will change his life forever.

    Summary

    “They really didn’t want the mask to come off.” Hill thumbed through the scans, and pulled out a film that she then handed over to Sam, face mostly expressionless but for the flat line of her pursed lips.

    Sam accepted the film and held it up to the light, angling so both he and Steve could see it, squinting at the outline of the Winter Soldier’s skull, and the blips of unnatural white that showed up, God, in his brain, not to mention about half his teeth, plus the mask, with its thin protrusions—

    “Those are pins,” Steve realized. He looked over at Hill. “The mask—it’s nailed to his face.”

    Hill’s face was as unmoved as ever. “Like I said. They really didn’t want it coming off.”
