    Summary

    Steve was everything the weirdly invasive history books and biographies said he was. He was every inch and ounce the great man the world thought him to be. Bucky had known that all along, and he was pleased that even seventy years later, the whole world was finally beginning to get to know his Steve. And Steve’s mind was something special too. He was one of the greatest tacticians the world had ever seen. Any situation, any enemy, any impossible scenario you could throw at him, Steve would bull right through it. Put him up against any great leader of the past, and Bucky would place his bets on Steve every time.

    He had, in fact. Bucky’d bet his life on Steve, every time they’d waltzed into battle.

    The thing was, Steve’s tactical mind was a thing of beauty, a rare gem in a world of mediocrity, something that barely came along once every few generations.

    But when it came to matters of the heart and soul? Steve Rogers was kind of a dumbass.

     

    But for the first time, Bucky had time to deal with Steve’s temper his way.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Centered around Stucky but ends in Steve/Bucky/Tony. Lots of nice smut scenes, wished there were more self reflective moments for all characters and kind of glosses over Tony's side of their relationship to focus on Stucky's (very interesting) dynamic. Focuses less on civil war angst and more on new content. Thor never actually shows up even though he's mentioned in the first chapter.

    Summary

    Months after the Avengers' dispute in Germany, the team returns to the US and moves back into the tower. As always, everyone pretends that nothing happened. Tony is just fine with this. He's used to pretending, and he'll be damned if he lets any of them see him flinch.

    Tony's the bad guy, after all. He's used to it. He's fine with it. He's good at it.

    Only now, there's something far worse loitering around the tower - The Winter Soldier. No one notices the guy at first, but when they do, Tony figures that he should have the solder's back.

    Birds of a feather should flock together, and the bad guys should start a book club.

    Summary

    Tony swept his gaze over the jacket. It was well used, heavily worn down, but not in a bad way. The fabric felt softened over years of use, and the slight discolorations seemed to suit it. Tony could see the marks left over from the previous owners. A small patch, sewn perfectly in neat little stiches on the inside breast pocket screamed of Steve’s steady hands, while the fraying on tails remained as evidence of Bucky’s impatient tugging.

    Or, Steve and Bucky gift Tony with their jacket that survived from the 1940's.

    Turns out that wasn't the only thing that survived.

    Summary

    “You’re sick, you need someone to look after you. This mission could take a couple of days, and I want you in one piece when I get home.”

    Tony sighed. “Why do you care?”

    Steve’s mouth twisted unhappily. “I hope that’s the fever talking.” He stepped closer. “When I get home,” he said, so quietly that Tony didn’t think even the nosiest of their nosy friends could hear it, “we’re going to talk, all right? Until then, please let Bucky look after you. Consider it me looking after you, through him.”
