    Summary

    Sleep requires trust.

    The trust that you can leave your body somewhere while you go out into the wilderness and it'll still be there in one piece when you return (he was awake when they took his arm he was awake). You have to leave your body somewhere safe, a suddenly vulnerable shell without anything inside to defend it (they come for him weak and shivering after cryo and he's awake he was awake). It's involuntary, something you can't control. You don't choose sleep, sleep chooses you.

    There's a reason it's called falling asleep, and Bucky doesn't want to fall ever again.

    [Bucky isn't sleeping. Shit hits the fan.]

    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.

    Summary

    Today, Peter was honest-to-god going to see Captain America himself up close, in person, and not from a rooftop or tiny crevice like a creepy stalker fanboy.

    Even better, he was going to watch Steve Rogers make history by soldiering his beleaguered way through the most intensely awkward and honestly ridiculous press conference in the history of ever-- jaw thrust out and spine ramrod straight. Trying hard to be polite and respectful in the face of adversity.

    While a bunch of assholes with cameras and microphones shouted at him about Iron Man’s adolescent dick.
