    Summary

    It’s no less than he deserves, but it doesn’t make it any easier, every time he looks in a mirror and sees the Asset staring back.

    When Steve turns him around, he shakes, afraid for a brief, bright moment that none of it will have made any difference; that he will look for humanity and still find a monster in return. But Steve stands by him and he is reminded that Steve is brave every day. So for him, Bucky can be brave too; he thinks, he will never earn any grace by being a coward.

    Bucky looks up and meets his own eyes.

    *

    A story of how Bucky Barnes learns to love himself again and how Steve shows him the way.

    Summary

    The first Sebastian hears of it, he's approached by an extremely competent-looking blonde woman in a sharp dark suit. CIA, what the fuck, and Seb just stares at her.

    “Come on,” he says. “Okay, we kind of look similar, I guess I'm the celebrity look-alike you'd get if you stuck our faces through one of those dumb apps—or he is, maybe, shit, he's probably still more famous than I am. But he died in, like, 1945, right? Why are you asking me about this now?”

    Maybe in the end it's his absolute confusion which convinces them; maybe it's just the fact that he's obviously a total idiot, couldn't possibly have any connection to this guy called the Winter Soldier beyond the fact that they both have high cheekbones, grey eyes and a sharp jawline and a too-pretty mouth. Sorry for the inconvenience, she tells him, thank you for your time, and that evening Sebastian stares at his face in the mirror, wonders what he'd look like if he grew his hair long and got a little stubble.

    "All right, I have a question for you. Oh, but you don’t have to answer it. I feel like if you don't answer it though, you're kind of answering it, you know…"

    Summary

    He’s the most gorgeous thing Bucky’s ever laid eyes on.

    He’s his new tentative boss. Maybe. If this interview goes well enough, anyway.

    “So, Mr. Barnes?” Steve asks, blinking at him from across a particle board table. He smiles, revealing those crooked teeth. “You ever work security before?”
