    Summary

    The premiere for Steve Rogers' newest Captain America movie was just around the corner, and Steve knew it was going to be a hit. The big downside was that he had to have a date. The last several times he'd brought someone to an event like this, things had ranged from unpleasant to disastrous. In a last ditch effort to get out of taking someone that might make his night hell, Steve went on Twitter and invited the Winter Soldier to be his plus one.

    The Soldier was an international fugitive, and currently wanted for a series of high profile attacks on corrupt businessmen. Since every person the Soldier attacked was involved in some truly vile criminal activity, the public loved him, despite his crimes. Inviting him to the premiere was the perfect cop out. There was no way he was ever going to show.

    Right?

    Very, very slowly, the Soldier moved his right hand to a pouch off of his belt. Steve tensed, breath catching in his throat.

    This is how he would die.

    Fuck.

    But what the Soldier pulled out of the pouch wasn’t a grenade like Steve feared. It was...flowers? A tiny little bouquet the size of the Soldier’s fist.

    Still moving slow as can be, the Soldier held out the flowers to Steve.

    “Oh my god,” Tony whispered. “He brought you a boutonniere.”

    Steve blinked, jaw slack with astonishment. The Soldier stood frozen, flowers still outstretched. A sharp nudge from Tony got Steve moving. He shook himself and took an unsteady breath. The adrenaline pumping through him narrowed the world to just the four of them. Everyone else had to be going mad.

    He licked his lips and took a step forward, grabbing hold of the flowers.

    “Thank you,” he said. If his voice wobbled a bit, well, Steve figured he could be excused.

    He looked down. The flowers were weird. Like nothing he’d ever seen before. The largest one was about the size of a silver dollar, and deep purple with a pale center. Next to it was a spray of the tiniest little rose blooms he had ever seen; each one was no larger than his pinky nail, and all a soft white-pink color. Those were wrapped together and nestled on a background of what looked like juniper. The pale blue-green needles and dark blue berries blended in surprisingly nicely with the other flowers. Somehow both warm and cool at the same time.

    The Soldier stepped in close and proceeded to pin the bundle to Steve’s lapel. As he gently settled the flowers into place, he spoke. “Hellebores, for protection from winter, wild roses for protection from evil, and juniper as a ward from harm.”

    Summary

    Bucky’s life is at a bit of a standstill these days as he commits to embracing his inner hermit, brewing the perfect pour-over, and writing popular fanfic for the Avengers movie franchise. When he strikes up a friendship with Steve, the snarky yet earnest fan of his latest fic, he finds himself opening up for the first time in years. Things get more complicated, however, when Bucky realizes that Steve’s more than just an everyday fan of the Avengers. As he and Steve grow closer, Bucky will have to decide whether or not he’s ready to start moving forward again.

    AutumnSoldier: hey now, my fic could be canon. it is neither confirmed nor denied in the avengers movies as to whether or not cap and ws are vampires. or football players either, for that matter. we don’t know what they do in their downtime between movies.

    HufflepuffCap: Omg. There’s never been a movie set during football season. You may be on to something.

    AutumnSoldier: u knew that off the top of your head? nerd. u must really love these movies.

    HufflepuffCap: Eh. Something like that.

    Summary

    “I agreed to help you two look for it, I didn’t sign up for some second grade treasure hunt.” He grumbles as he hands over the plastic pill bottle.

    “Don’t look at me, I’m not the one who lost it,” says Sam as he levels an accusatory look right at Steve.

    --

    The shield is gone. Steve knows it's Natasha who's taken it, but instead of just giving it back (too easy, that would never happen), she sends him, Bucky, and Sam the long way around.

    "Look past the literal, Steve.” Sam snatches the clue back. “You said yourself, it’s poetry. Whoever has it has a lot of heart, wears it on his sleeve, and he . . . ‘those who haunt the night’. Vam. . . pires?”

    Steve grins. “Lost it a little on the end there.”

    “Closer than you woulda got. What else haunts the night?”

    “Everything.” Bucky says helpfully, not looking up from whatever he’s doing on his phone. “I used to. So did Natasha.”

    Summary

    Steve's first meeting with James, his group project partner for his geology class, is a disaster. He knew writing a partner paper wasn't going to be much fun, but he hadn't counted on James being taciturn and standoffish to the point of rudeness. He leaves their first meeting offended and annoyed, wondering if James was short with him because he's Deaf.

    Then he finds out that James is fluent in ASL and decides to give him another chance. Steve has no idea how far that second chance will go.

    Honestly, he has no idea why he thought geology, of all things, would be a good class to take for his natural sciences credit. He could be hanging out in Natasha's room right now and chatting with her in sign language instead of being forced to speak out loud. He could be listening to her latest boy problems or teaming up against Sam in Mario Party. But here he is instead, in the library. Doing geology. Suffering.
