    Summary

    Two title cards for Momento Mori by KeyWolf25888.

    It's a story about love and death (not necessarily in that order), wherein nobody actually dies. ;)

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes grows up with two best friends he loves more than anything. One is Steve Rogers, who Bucky can't have and shouldn't want. The other is a little pony who no one else can hear, touch or see. Not even Steve, no matter how much Bucky wants him to.

    Bucky learns quickly that the only thing you can really expect is disappointment, and he gets used to ignoring what he wants. But he has his best friends, and that's good enough.

    He knows he's lucky.

    But in our world there's no such thing as magic, and friendship can't stop a war.

    (When Bucky thinks about it years from now, he won't remember why his father was angry, or why he was crying, or why no one came to look for him. But he'll remember crying on the steps and he'll wonder anyway, because he was just six, but mostly because he was sad and afraid and alone.

    But he will always, always remember the moment when he lifts his little head because he has a feeling someone's watching him, and is suddenly looking into the apple-green eyes of an astonishingly small horse.)

    Summary

    Bucky straightened and took another bite of the apple, then grinned at Steve as he chewed and swallowed. It was one of his artful ones, the kind he'd used on teachers and parents and the girls he wanted to impress before the War. The kind he didn't mean. "You tryin' to make me into an angel, Stevie?"

    "Now why would I do that?" Steve smiled at Bucky's laugh, then very carefully turned back to the drawing. He didn't hold the pencil too tightly and snap it, or press too hard and rip the paper.

    He very carefully didn't say, you used to be one.

    (Or, the eleventy-billionth "Bucky is a Guardian Angel" fic that nobody asked for.)

    Summary

    Ernesto Jiménez meets Bucky Barnes in Bucharest in 2016, and offers him a job.

    But first he meets him in Kreischberg in 1943 and saves his life.

    (Defiance would fade. Ernesto was painfully aware of that. And when defiance faded, the will followed. And after that there could only be death, of one kind or another.

    In roughly two weeks and fourteen hours, Steve Rogers' defiance would create Captain America, reborn in the ashes of this Godforsaken prison. But Ernesto was well acquainted with death; had seen—had caused—more then enough of it for several lifetimes. He'd seen the prisoners in Huesca and could tell which of them would live to cry and rant and endure another day. And which would not.

    Barnes' defiance was fading, and when it died, so would he. He might not last two more weeks and fourteen hours.)

    Summary

    Clint Barton and Jim Street have been together for about a month as Bonded Guide and Sentinel when Jim's mom is released from prison.

    Clint wants Jim to have nothing to do with his emotionally abusive, Hydra mother. But Jim feels he owes Karen Street too much to abandon her, and Clint loves Jim too much to break his Sentinel's heart. So despite Clint's misgivings, they go to Los Angeles to visit.

    The idea is to spend a couple hours with Karen and then hopefully never see her again. But what not even Jim realizes is how much Karen hates Clint for being Jim's Guide instead of her. Or how far she'll go to get her son back.

    Because Karen Street will do anything to get her son back. The problem is, Clint and Jim might not survive it.

    Summary

    For this anonymous prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "How about anything with tsum tsums in it? I love them! Soulmates AU where you are born with your soulmate's tsum? Or tsums are like daemons? The little guys are the ones to fall in love first? Anything goes, really!"

    The Asset called the creatures 'Soft Pills', because he had to take pills often enough that he recognized the shape. He knew there was another name for them, something like 'Sum', but no one ever told him.

    He liked the soft pills. They were warm and nice to touch and made pleasant noises. He didn't have one of his own, but that was reasonable. He didn't have a soul, so how could he have a Soulmate? The little creatures appeared for humans; not weapons. But sometimes, if he'd done very, very well on a mission, one of his Handlers would let him hold their pill for a little while.

    Summary

    Danny Williams is one of the ten percent of Earth's population who have special, superhuman abilities known as Gifts.

    Danny would say the better term is curse, especially when he gets kidnapped by criminals who expect him to do the impossible.

    Now he's got two choices: comply, possibly destroy the world, and die in terrible pain; or refuse...and die in terrible pain. How is this his life?

    And what do a bunch of impatient, angry Russians want with a big, green cylinder anyway?

    Summary

    When Danny Williams visits New Jersey after the fall of S.H.I.E.L.D., the last thing he expects is to find a feral Sentinel curled up in the back seat of his car.

    Wait, scratch that. The actual last thing Danny expects is for the feral Sentinel to be Bucky Barnes.

    But Danny's a Guide, and Bucky is in deep distress, so of course Danny brings him home. The plan is for Danny to get Bucky back into his head, then back to his Guide, Captain America. Bucky will be safe, he and Steve Rogers can reaffirm their bond, Danny can go back to Hawaii and Danny's Steve can go back to throwing himself off things. Everyone will be where and with whom they belong, and they'll all live happily ever after. Easy.

    There's just one problem: Danny Williams' life has never been easy.

    Summary

    For this anonymous prompt from the Imagine Tony and Bucky Comm on Tumblr:

    "70 years of freezing has bucky be quite touch starved and tactile. He loves hugging tony, making out with tony, carrying tony."

    Bucky bites his lip, which would be more fetching if he didn't look so horrifically distressed. Not to mention he still can barely meet Tony's eyes. "Could you…." He closes his eyes, then takes an obviously fortifying breath. "Could you…stay with me? Please?" His voice is barely a whisper, weighted with shame. "I'm sorry. I know I shouldn't ask. But. Could you stay?"

    Summary

    For this prompt by Dayzor from the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "Oh yay! Super excited!! I've been sitting on a couple prompts haha Imagine a Sentinel/Guide AU- Tony is a guide, something kept from the public as Howard always saw it as weak. Bucky is a sentinel, and HYDRA made a point to never send the Winter Soldier after any guides to avoid natural instincts breaking through their programming. They send him after Tony, not knowing better."

    The Winter Soldier had never had a Guide.

    They told him that he must not approach or engage a Guide. They didn't explain why, but he knew better than to ask. He was the Winter Soldier, Sentinel and weapon. The only things he needed to know were what they told him.

    And two days ago, they'd told him to kill Tony Stark.

    Summary

    Napoleon Solo meets Bucky Barnes in 1945. He's the only one who knows it's the first and last time.

    (He was fairly certain there were other Clairvoyants who were able to change the future, not just be intimately aware of it. Napoleon was not one of them. Nothing he ever did mattered a good God damn to fate. If it was meant to happen, it would. He'd learned that the hard way, but he'd never forgotten it.)

    Summary

    For this nonny prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "Bonding is a natural thing that happens between compatible people. Person can have only one bond. When Tony wants to bond with his partner he finds out that he already has a bond. Now he has to find the person that he accidentally bonded with so many years ago when he was still a child."

    The only thing Tony remembered for certain was how he'd felt: Joy, belonging and comfort like he'd never found before or since. For a couple minutes out of his entire misbegotten life, he'd known what it meant to be whole.

    It was impossible to forget. It had ruined him. Every new friendship, every potential relationship, only offered the forlorn possibility that he might feel that way again. But he never did. And after forty-something years of looking, he didn't think he would.

    He still woke up with tears on his face and an emptiness inside him like a black hole had swallowed his heart. But that didn't happen as often anymore. He could even manage not to think of his lost Half for whole hours at a time.

    Most of the time, he was okay.

    Summary

    For this nonny prompt at the Imagine Tony and Bucky comm on Tumblr:

    "A soulmate AU where an immortal goose shows up one day to lead you to your soulmate, the challenge is surviving the goose." (Full prompt in notes.)

    We all have soulmates, and every soulmate pair shares an animal guide. The Guide is there to lead you to your One True Love, and they represent the aspects of the psyche that you both share. They appear when you're about to meet your soulmate, and often materialize in moments of great personal crisis, offering hope and support. There are stories upon stories about how someone's Guide appeared to lead them to their One True, or how the barest glimpse of their Guide eased their hearts and gave them hope in the midst of despair. The newly-rescued almost always attribute their Guide with giving them the strength and courage to hang on.

    Animal Guides are ephemeral, ethereal, and elusive. They are, most often, no more than a warm presence or flicker out of the corner of one's eye. They are incarnate symbols of perseverance, optimism and hope. Foretellers of happiness, and the grand destiny of love.

    Except for geese. Geese are assholes.

    Summary

    This isn't Stucker's story, but it begins with him because he finds a much older story, one about an American prisoner with a divided soul. One day the prisoner will get his name back, along with his history and freedom. But right now he is known only as the Ghost Cat; The Siberian Tiger; the Asset. Designations whispered with awe, disbelief and fear.

    Strucker isn't afraid, but he is envious. It's 2005 and Alexander Pierce has owned the Ghost Cat for thirteen years. Strucker wants the Ghost Cat very, very badly, but Pierce is the head of the World Security Council. Pierce controls the director of S.H.I.E.L.D.. Strucker has a few armed thugs, a couple of trembling, sycophantic scientists, and an anachronistic fortress in the middle of a Sokovian forest. He has nothing that would let him steal or take the Ghost Cat from Pierce. He certainly has nothing to offer worth a shape-changing, assassin familiar.

    Strucker may have nothing to offer, or with which to challenge Alexander Pierce. But he does have his intelligence, his knowledge, and his ambition.

    He also has a pair of young, terrified twins.

    Summary

    "I never blamed Bucky for…for being the weapon that killed my parents in the first place. I blamed you for keeping it from me. And anger issues, yadda. But, didn't it ever occur to you I might've helped you find him?" Tony's voice had gone small, compressed around a pain Steve had never even imagined he might feel. "I was, I'm your friend. I would've gotten over myself and helped you."

    "I know, Tony." Steve had known at the time; he'd been too afraid to let himself believe it. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry I didn't trust you enough. I'm sorry I was a coward. I'm sorry I never tried to see your perspective on the Accords."

    "I'm really sorry I tried to kill Bucky," Tony said. "I can't stand this, Steve. I want the band back together. I want to make this right."

    Summary

    He can't be Hydra. Because if he wasn't created like this, if it's not God but Hydra that's responsible for what he's become…then the wrongness isn't inside him, it is him. God didn't put the devil in him; Matthew made himself into a monster.

    For years, Matt has tried to think of his abilities as a gift, to mitigate the curse he was born with. But if it's Hydra, if it's all Hydra, then there is no gift. There's no curse. It's just him. Just some sick fuck who makes excuses to beat the shit out of people because he likes it.

    Summary

    Steve is holding his own and then some—he's already taken down four men to Matt's two; Matt's just about redundant—but that still leaves seven on their feet, and Steve can't deal with them all.

    Matt throws his club at Seven, who's trying to shoot Steve in the back while he takes care of Six. Steve's fast, though. Six hasn't even hit the ground when Steve turns and his arm comes up in time to deflect the dart. Which shouldn't be possible, except the dart bounces off with a tiny, metallic clang. What the hell?

    This guy isn't Steve. He's someone else. Someone who smells like Steve and moves like him, but who's not quite as tall, Matt realizes, even if he's just as heavy. And his left arm smells like a hot engine.
