    Summary

    Summary

    Steve’s not sure why he walks up to the bar and orders a whiskey on the rocks from the bartender instead of walking away. When he thinks on it later, the only conclusion he can come up with is that somehow some part of him had known.

    As he waits for his drink, he can feel the guy’s eyes on him, checking him out. He returns the favor, letting his gaze drift down a lean body in a perfectly tailored tux, then all the way up till their eyes meet. The guy looks young, maybe around twenty-five, but it's hard to be sure with the mask hiding part of his face.

    The guy smirks at him with sinfully pink lips, but his light eyes are shadowed, making them hard to read. “You come here often?”

    Summary

    "Steve, if there's a time when you don't have to worry about anything, it's now. I’m a Herald-Trainee, Winter's a Companion. You're exhausted. Just…trust us. We'll get you home safely."

    For a long moment, a moment in which Bucky felt gifted with sudden insight into who Steve was, he thought it could go either way. Then Steve smiled, this one warm and bright and just for Bucky, and it raced through him, lodging inside him like a miniature sun. "Guess I'd be a bit ungrateful to say no."

    Some Heralds change the world. Some Heralds save it. Some Herald's names are woven through the very fabric of Valdemar. But most don't, and most aren't. Most Heralds simply do their duty, their Companions by their sides, their stories recorded in dusty Crown records not Bardic ballads.

    Steve and Bucky figured they were most Heralds—no ballads required, thanks—and they were mostly right. What they didn't account for was that no Herald was ordinary—and with the two of them bound so tightly together, extraordinary was sure to follow.

    [Absolutely no knowledge of the Valdemar series required for this fic]

    Summary

    Steven Rogers was born in 18th century Ireland to a mother who knew herbs and the old ways. After she passes, Steve asks for aid and gets more than he bargained for. He’s cursed into the form of a beast by day and given 300 years to prove to the fae enchantress that such a thing as true love exists. If he can’t prove it, he’ll be whisked back to her realm and be forced to marry her. He can try to find love with whomever he wants, but they have to fall in love with him without seeing his human face for a year and a day. He spends hundreds of years searching, but so far, no one seems worth the risk.

    Bucky Barnes is a grumpy war vet whose sister is dying. Desperate, he goes in search of a flower that can save her, but the cost is higher than he anticipated: His sister’s life in exchange for his. When he returns to keep his side of the bargain, nothing in the mansion is what it seems.
