    Summary

    Three years after the Snap halved the population of the universe, Steve Rogers still bears the weight of the Avengers’ failure on his shoulders. The dust has settled around him, trapping him in grief and burying him in regret. For three years, he’s assumed he'll never break free of the consequences of that day and his failure.

    But, after his first group therapy session, he meets a handsome man haunted by his own ghosts; and they start to rebuild their worlds in the aftermath of an intergalactic tragedy.
     

    (An Infinity War/Endgame re-write where Steve actually goes to therapy and doesn’t meet Bucky Barnes until after the Snap; they heal together and fall in love along the way)

    Summary

    Before he was Captain America, he was Steve Rogers, knobby kneed and wild-eyed, with scrapes on his knuckles and a book in his hands.

    In 1942, he leaves for war and eventually crashes the Valkyrie.

    That's only the beginning of his story.

    In 2011, Steve's body is dragged from ice off the coast of Greenland.

    In 2015, he meets a bookstore clerk.

    This is what happens when a superhero loses his way home and the only way back is through the Yellow Book Road.

    Summary

    Seven years into an isolated retirement after the Battle of New York, Steve has carved out a place for himself in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains. He has a best friend (his dog, Lady), a frenemy (a local black bear named Rufus), and a cabin in the middle of the woods, an hour's drive from the nearest town. As November comes to a close, he heads into town to pick up supplies and ends up with a stowaway.

    Bucky hasn't had much luck over the past seven years. Disaster caused his family to move from New York to Indiana, and his life has steadily fallen apart ever since. After one too many heartbreaks, he decides to hitch his way back to the last place he remembers being happy: Brooklyn. He's in the homestretch when he finds himself stranded in a half-empty tourist town in the Catskills and decides to take a chance crawling into the back of someone's truck.

    AKA the "Lumberjack Steve/Twink Bucky" fic of our hearts. Bucky spends so much time thirsty as hell.

    Summary

    Clint was never any good at strategy. He's pretty good at putting his foot in his mouth, though. Never to the extent where he ends up accidentally marrying someone he's not seen in twenty years, though.
