    Summary

    When Steve Rogers does something nice for the wife of one of the largest Russian mafia families, Winifred sends her son, James Buchanan Barnes, to offer him a 'favor' in return. But Steve, who is incapable of seeing the bad in anyone, ends up missing the fact that Bucky's in the mafia entirely and thinks that this brick house of a man wants to go on a date. Bucky, finding this clueless yet confident coffee shop owner refreshing and adorable, decides to give it a shot.

    What blooms is a lovely romance between the two, where Steve is constantly surprised that they always have the best seats at restaurants, that Bucky seems to know everyone in Little Odessa, and that Bucky has a crap ton of guns in his apartment. But why do all of Steve's friends go pale when Bucky comes around? How does Natasha know Bucky? And when Steve's health starts to get in the way, how far will Bucky go to make things right?

    A mafia AU slams into a coffee shop AU, and out pops a cracky, fluffy, smutty, and angsty identity porn fic between son-of-a-mafia boss Bucky Barnes and clueless coffee shop owner Steve Rogers that takes a brief look into the bowels of the American healthcare system.

    Summary

    "Who knew that the Avengers could throw such a rager?" The hotel receptionist commented as she dug around in her desk.

    “The Avengers?” Bucky squeaked.

    “Oh yes, I mean, that was the only party here last night. That must have been the one you went to, right?”

    Bucky and his unit hadn’t just crashed a fancy party.

    They had crashed a fancy party hosted by the fucking Avengers.

    Summary

    Kelpies were killers. They lived in the water, drowned anyone who came too close. Ate them, most of the time. It was reflex not choice, like the kick that follows a hammer hitting a knee, because kelpies were no more aware than a wave or a wildfire.

    Hydra knew about kelpies. It was why they'd come up with their brilliant plan to capture one and turn it into an assassin. But like so many plans that seemed good on paper it came with unintended consequences—in Hydra's case, the unintended consequences were Bucky and no more Hydra.

    Steve didn't know that. Even as a sometime Shield consultant, he had no way of knowing any of that. Which meant when the sleek black horse surged up out of the water and didn't kill him, the only answer he could give to, "Why?" was, "I don't know."

    Summary

    Things Steve knows about his boyfriend Bucky: How he looks with his face relaxed in sleep. That he can perfectly flip pancakes. The way he’s open about things Steve is still adapting to, like therapy and depression and sex toys and being a millennial. The way he laughs with his mouth wide open and his eyes squinted, and the cheerful way he cheats at cards and loses at laser tag.

    The way he seduces Steve with a knowing glint in his eye. The way Steve responds to it, stronger each time, taken by his beauty and competence and snark and compassion (or the compassionate way he boots Steve in the ass when he needs a push).

    Things Steve doesn’t know about his boyfriend Bucky: That he’s an undercover operative gathering intel on Hydra, SHIELD, and which Steve is affiliated with.

    Summary

    “I just, I’m not always great with words, but I saw how Tony talked about you and then I saw how you talked about Tony and I just, well, I couldn’t unsee it. But then we came back here and now I see the way I look at Tony and I can’t unsee him the way you do… the way he’s meant to be seen.”

    Steve scrubbed a hand over his face and through his hair before speaking, “Even if we can get Tony on board, it’s not gonna be easy Buck.”

    Bucky gave a familiar, relaxed shrug, “defending your aggressive, skinny ass in every back alley in Brooklyn wasn’t easy either, but it was worth it.”

    *AKA the Civil War fix-it story that ends in Stuckony bliss.
