    Summary

    When Barnes stumbles into a small town in Maine at summer's end, he's been running a long time and doesn't expect to stay. But as weeks pass, he starts wondering whether all this time he hasn't been running away from, but towards something - the kindness of strangers, quiet fields, and a curious, yellow-eyed goshawk.

    Summary

    Bucky is walking out of Starbucks when he sees a Captain America signal hanging in the sky.

    "Uh," Bucky says, stopping dead on the sidewalk. "Huh."

    For one thing, he doesn't have a Captain America signal.

    So… that seems like kind of a bad sign.

    Summary

    Running from his handlers - and from himself - the Asset stumbles into the life of a mouthy little punk that reminds him of… someone. He isn’t sure who. But he’s out of options, and his programming has imprinted on this new handler whether he likes it or not. His new handler seems nice, though, and she definitely isn’t HYDRA. That’s something, right?

    Summary

    One moment Steve stood listening to Fury talk some nonsense to deceive the bugs apparently everywhere in Steve’s apartment, and the next moment a door opened where there hadn’t been a door before. In the doorway stood a figure, outlined in the fluorescent light pouring out from behind it. Steve made out arms, legs, a head, but around those were....other limbs, squirming and curling. His head ached when he tried to count them, perhaps three, perhaps twenty. His eyes shied away from understanding the sight of them, at once glowing with an oil-slick rainbow of colors while also being the same empty blackness of endless space.

    The figure looked hard at Steve, meeting his eyes over a face-mask. The eyes were the same as those awful limbs, simultaneously a bright, mesmerizing gold and also holes into a place with no light at all.
