    Summary

    It was Bucky, standing in a pool of his own blood, one shoulder propped against the doorframe as if he could barely stand. A little girl covered in dirt and blood clutched his right arm, leaves caught in her mane of springy black curls. A tiny baby was carefully cradled in his left, black streaks of grime standing out against its china-pale skin

    “I need your help.”

    Summary

    When you wake up, SHIELD pulls out all the stops to convince you to stay and work for them. But they don’t even care enough about you to get their lies straight. If Bucky were here, he’d tell you to get the hell out and go back home. But Bucky’s dead and you don’t have a home anymore. Still, you’ve always been a disagreeable punk, too stubborn to back down from a challenge. Walking away from Captain America may be the biggest challenge you’ve ever faced, but you’re up to it.

    Summary

    His family called him Bucky.

    The arenas in Athens called him the Winter Soldier.

    The Spartan Brotherhood calls him Iakov. He defends the light from the dark that once coursed through his veins.

    When the location of the Tesseract—a powerful Piece of Eden—is made known to the Brotherhood by a pair of Assassins from Athens, it is up to Iakov and his men to secure it before the Order of Hydra does, and it will take the cooperation of both Bureaus to succeed. His job is not made easier when he finds himself falling for his commanding officer, a certain blond Athenian Assassin who hides a powerful secret.

    But they are not the only ones after the Tesseract. With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, a dangerous enemy looming unseen over their shoulders, and nobody left to trust, they must find and bring the Tesseract to Athens before it falls into the wrong hands—that is, if they manage to survive the trip.

    Summary

    He lets out a long sigh and watches Bucky. Back home he was always too vain to let more than a day’s worth of stubble build up, but now he’s got about three days of scruff on his chin. He shouldn’t look handsome like this. His eyes are shut, but Steve can tell by his breathing that he’s still awake. The cat is curled up on his stomach and purring like an idling motor.

    “He’s actually pretty cute.”

    Bucky smiles softly, too sleepy to make whole faces.

    “Damn right,” he hums. He’s stroking the cat’s fur, which is soft and fine now that it’s clean. He looks so open and inviting. Steve doesn’t close his eyes, watching Bucky’s gentle fingers and trying to come up with a plausible excuse to go touch him.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Sam says, and then delighted, “Holy shit. You look like my nana’s dog. This is incredible.”

    “Yeah, funny that, when they gave him the serum it only really worked on the human bits.” Bucky, whose reaction to Sam thus far has been standoffish at best, and like a wolf whose territory has been invaded at worst, sounds amused, the asshole.

    Steve growls a little.

    Or rather: A story in which Steve Rogers is the littlest werewolf who could and Bucky Barnes comes in from the cold and makes him his home.
