    Summary

    “Sir.” At the uncharacteristic interruption from JARVIS, everyone falls silent. “There is an unauthorized person in the back left-hand corner of the room.”

    Steve turns around, already knowing who he’ll see as everyone scrambles to their feet. Sure enough, it’s Bucky, curled up in an armchair, loose-limbed and relaxed as a cat. Long brown hair cascades around his shoulders and the tips of his ears are exactly as pointed as Steve remembers.

    Nat whips a gun out from somewhere and points it at him. Tony has a repulsor on his hand. Wanda’s hands are up and surrounded by a red glow. Only Thor seems unworried—resuming his seat after an initial moment of battle-readiness.

    “Bucky,” Steve says.

    Bucky glances around with bright, inquisitive eyes. The corners of his lips tip up in a smile, as though amused by the chaos his appearance caused. “We meet again, Captain.”

    Tony’s eyebrows are parked halfway up his forehead as he studies Bucky. “I see what you mean by Lord of the Rings, Cap.” Then, aggrieved, “JARVIS, how did he get in?”


    In which Captain America meets a flirtatious elf...

    Summary

    One night, after a few too many beers, he texts Derek. He doesn’t expect a response, sure that Derek has changed his number many, many times since he left Beacon Hills without so much as a goodbye. Hell, who knows if Derek even has a phone anymore? It’s not like he was good at texting even when he had some semblance of a pack, of people that maybe, sort of cared about him.

    I don’t feel like I’m me anymore. Feels like I’m trying really hard to be the same but it just seems hollow.

    He doesn’t get a response but it doesn’t really bother him. He wasn’t expecting one anyway. He’s stopped expecting things from people. He’s stopped expecting a lot of things. That voice in the back of his head tells him that he stopped expecting things from Derek when he left without saying goodbye, like hours in a pool meant absolutely nothing, like Stiles meant absolutely nothing.

    Post 6A. Stiles starts texting Derek because he thinks that if anyone understands what he's going through, it's Derek.

    Summary

    There’s a storm above. The water above him is dark, angry; he can feel the tension threading through her, holding her hostage. The water is empty of life other than him, the usual hustle and bustle tucked away safe, deep, where the wind-churned waves can’t affect them. Bucky had never claimed to be the smartest person around, and he doesn’t try to now, drifting in the storm-sea. The crystal in his trident hums at him, so he hums back, gently threading energy out of it and gifting it back to the water.

    A dark shape cuts through the water above him, and his grip instinctively tightens on the trident. It’s big, too big to be an animal, now that the whales have moved on to follow the warmth. A boat, then.

    Humans.

    OR: the fic where Bucky's king of the Mer, Steve's a human, and somehow they make it work.

    Summary

    Sometimes Bucky’s hands flex in Steve's direction. Neither of them knows exactly why, but at least one of them has a hunch.
     

    Bucky touches everything but Steve, even though Steve is all he really wants to touch.
