    Summary

    It's just an innocuous comment, that's how it starts.

    He's not even sure why he says it; it's too much, entirely, pushing things too far, but— “It's not—one and done, you know? I got, uh. Stamina.”

    “Stamina,” Bucky repeats, flat. “Uh huh.” And then he's throwing back the rest of his drink, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, turning to Steve and squaring his jaw all challenge. “How many times?”

    “How—”

    “Yeah. How many times. In one go.”

    “I—” Steve starts, flushing so hot he feels like he must be a beacon in the bar, shining through the grey-out. Bucky's still looking at him, curious, and something else under it, something Steve can't place. “Four,” he says, compulsively too-honest in the face of Bucky’s gaze, and Bucky's eyes widen.

    Summary

    Sitting with his back to the polished wood bar, Bucky's not particularly in the mood for darts or pool. He’s been nursing the same beer for an hour and pretty much staring into space when he sees the outside door open, issuing forth none other than Steve Fucking Rogers, object of his desire, dressed down in worn jeans and an olive colored t-shirt that adheres to his massive pecs like the worst case of static cling Bucky has ever seen.

    Suddenly his night starts looking up.

    Summary

    "Well," Bucky says, his tone low and brimming with promise, "you won't really know if you're into guys unless you try it."

    Steve swallows hard, his eyes flicking to Bucky's mouth. "As in... try what?"

    "Tell you what." Bucky reaches across the bar and cups Steve's jaw, ghosting the pad of his thumb over Steve's full, red lips. Steve quivers. "I was thinking about shutting down early tonight. If you'll give me ten minutes to close up, I'll take you upstairs to my place and let you try whatever the hell you want."
    **
    Or, the AU in which Bucky is a bartender who offers Steve service with much more than a smile.

    Summary

    Bucky's just having a little trouble...finishing. Completing the mission. He can squeeze the trigger but he can't make the shot is what he's saying.

    Which is why he's here, loitering outside a nice brownstone in Park Slope, trying to find the courage to knock on Captain Come Control dot com's door for his three o'clock appointment.

    You know, just normal Thursday things.
