    Summary

    Bucky Barnes always assumed he'd live a fairly normal life. He's a history teacher after all, a normal guy from Brooklyn with a passion for the arts and humanities, who wants to share that passion with a new generation. A chance encounter with Steve Rogers uproots that normal life, however, and sends Bucky on a very different path than the one he'd always imagined.

    Things tend to get complicated when you date Steve Rogers, living legend, Actual Hero; after spending some time in Hydra captivity, Bucky's faced with a long road to recovery. With the support of his loving boyfriend and the friends he's made in the Avengers, however, Bucky might come to realize that maybe, just maybe, he was made to be a hero, too.

    Summary

    Shuri and Wanda cleared Bucky's triggers shortly after Killmonger's attempted coup, and he and Steve went on the run. But it turns out there's more to "fixing Bucky's head" than "getting Hydra out of it." When a group of rogue scientists manage to neutralize the serum and make Steve very sick--pre-serum "this is bad" kind of sick--and they're cut off from contact with Wakanda, Bucky knows only one person with resources to help.

    He calls Tony and surrenders on the condition that Tony tries to help Steve.

    From there, it's basically three variously messed-up guys’ trajectories from "This Is Fine", "Reasonably Speaking I Know It’s Fine", "I Will Be Fine With It" to actually being fine, guest-starring a far-better-adjusted teenage boy who climbs walls, a 1957 Ford Thunderbird, two women with a keen sense of the absurd, and Bruce, the Zen master of “it’s fine that it’s not fine.”

    Add in the fact that Bucky's been secretly in love with Steve since the thirties and things only get harder. Learning to be a person is the hardest thing Bucky Barnes will ever have to do--but he's got company along the way.

    Summary

    Bucky doesn't mean to get involved in the altercation. He doesn't /want/ to get involved in the altercation, especially when his ex is involved and he looks like a well-fucked mess.

    Bucky doesn't always get what he wants, however, but at least the not-especially-grateful guy he rescued is cute
