    Summary

    Steve pulls her into an embrace before he can second-guess the impulse. Natasha allows it, rigid against him for second before she relaxes into his arms, her own coming around him, loose at first and then tight like she wants to squeeze the life out of his body and into her grasp where she can keep it safe.

    When they part, it feels like the end of an era.

    Goodbye, Captain America. Goodbye, Avengers.

    Natasha presses a key into his palm.

    “Stay safe, Rogers.”

    Steve watches her leave and keeps watching until the sound of the tires are long gone. The he turns around and goes to the house. The door opens easily; there’s no dust or wear on it. It swings open without the creak of rusty hinges. The driveway and the bushes beside it are well-kept too. As safe houses go, it’s one of the most pleasant ones Steve’s had to stay in.

    He keeps thinking that right until he steps into the foyer and finds himself face-to-face with one Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    Dating is hard. It's especially hard when you're a 100 year old, ex-brainwashed assassin, with a metal arm and a chip on your shoulder.

    "You just need to find a bit of common ground." Steve says.

    Like it's that simple. Like there's anyone nowadays who likes any of the same things he does; black and white pictures, big band music, dancing... Hell, he can't even take his dates dancing anymore and even if he could, what the fuck is he supposed to talk to them about?

    "Hi, I'm Bucky, I know 42 ways to kill you with my bare hands, fancy a spin?"

    What kind of idiot would want to date that?

    Summary

    “Oh, God, I knew this would happen,” he whispers, voice so low that even Steve’s super powered ears struggle to catch it. Still, he doesn’t miss the devastation that the words hold, and it makes him feel helpless in the worst kind of way. “I’m sorry. But I just can’t tell what’s real and what’s made up anymore. Everything Hydra put inside me is still there. All he had to do was say the goddamn words,” Bucky says brokenly.

    Steve’s mouth is open and talking before he can stop himself, so filled with the urge to help the man he loves that he doesn’t even know what he’s saying until after he’s said it. “So ask.”

    Bucky’s eyes raise slowly to him, expression still gutted and now wary as well. “Ask what?”

    Steve bites his lip, but it’s too late to take it back now. “What’s real,” Steve answers gently. “I might not have all the answers, but anything you ask- I’ll do my best to answer, Bucky. I swear.”

    (inspired by the "real or not real" scenes between Peeta and Katniss)

    Summary

    A vacation sounded like a good idea. Doing something fun on his vacation sounded like a good idea. Being on a small ship for several hours with a group of other people? That was starting to sound less and less like a good idea, until he meets the crew of the Winter Star.

    Summary

    Steve has his life in order, okay. He goes to wizard college, even if he can't technically do magic. He has his own apartment, even though it's small and dinky and kind of gross, and forgets to exist sometimes, and might also be alive? Plus, he has a crush on the hot cyborg in unit 404 who cooks fiendishly good breakfast foods, and may or may not have some kind of weird connection to the sentient building they live in. He's not sure.

    He's dealing, all right, his life is in tip-top condition, or it was until an eldritch monstrosity called the Hydra started posing as a real estate company to try and buy over his new home.

    He's really pissed about that.

    (The one where Steve is an angry millennial wizard, Sam is a Disney prince, Natasha is a shapeshifter, and Bucky is a spoiler.)

    Summary

    The coach gave Isaac’s shoulder a squeeze before unfolding from his crouch. Bucky’s breath caught in his chest as he watched the man stand up to his full height. Tall and broad shouldered with a slim waist, wearing dark blue trackpants that hugged the curves of his glutes perfectly. Why had Bucky not been paying attention to him for the past three hours? 

    =

    aka baseball coach Steve and supportive uncle Bucky.

    Summary

    Bruised and battered, the Avengers need a place to lay low, to hide from the enraged public out for their blood after the Hulk's rampage, and to plan for Ultron's next move. They can't risk being tracked, so they need somewhere secluded, hidden, and kept off of any known map, server, or locator in the world. The ultimate safehouse, one that not even Ultron would know about.

    Steve seems to have just the place.

    Summary

    “Cobra Bubbles,” Clint said, and lost his breath to laughing instead. Fury’s eyebrow twitched.
    “You failed at bringing in an extra-terrestrial with demonstrated destructive capabilities because a child got attached to it.” Natasha’s voice was dry.
    “I delayed bringing in an extra-terrestrial with demonstrated destructive capabilities because it got attached to a child that I didn’t feel should be collateral damage,” Fury growled.
    Clint fell off his chair. Natasha’s lips trembled.

    Summary

    Bucky, a freelance operative: codename Winter Soldier, has been working with the Avengers on the regular, which was great, he loved the extra cash, could hone skills he’d picked up in the army and no-one cared about his metal arm. Best of all he got to work with Captain America, a man out of time whose identity is shrouded in secret, which made having a big fat crush on him problematic, since no one knew the Winter Soldiers identity either. But this doesn't stop Bucky being drawn to Cap in a way he’d never felt before.

    So it’s a surprise when Natasha drops off a small injured mystery man 'Grant' to him for protection and to patch up, that he finds himself utterly taken with the snarky man. Feelings he couldn’t work out as Grant was the worst patient, stubborn as hell and pushed Bucky’s buttons in all the wrong (and right) ways. He needed to figure out who Grant was, and what he had to do with SHIELD before he either killed or kissed him stupid.

    Throw in Hydra’s infestation of SHIELD, unsanctioned science experiments, being hunted and keeping identities secret, all while trying not to fall helplessly in love with a man who had more secrets than the Pyramids. Bucky’s simple life was now anything but.

    “Steve, what are you doing?”

    “Where are you going?”

    “Nat’s, maybe, I think.”

    You’re the kinda guy that God loves. You’re golden and perfect and strong. Some people aren’t made for war, and you’re one of them.

    They can waste me on something like this. No matter how many kids I kill dead, it’s not sending me to Hell. No. I saved myself a spot down there when I fell in love with you.

    Steve shuffles through the theatre resumes and then stops. He looks up into the audience and spies him. “Bucky?” He has the good sense to sound like he didn’t stomp the fuck out of Bucky’s heart three years ago.

    Bucky sits up a little bit. “Hey, Steve.”

    “Good to see you.”

    “You, too.” Yeah, I bet you bastard.
