    Summary

    James Barnes thinks he has relatively normal life. He has a job (security at the Wakandan embassy) and a house and some hobbies. Sure, he shares a name with the famous (now dead) international assassin and he just woke up from a coma with no arm or memory of his past life - but everyone has their quirks, right? Nonetheless, James can’t shake the feeling he was meant for more than this. When he discovers he has superpowers, James finds himself taking on the mantle of vigilante and finds himself face to face with a masked superhuman named Nomad.

    Where did James get his superpowers? Why can't he remember his past? Why is he so drawn to Nomad's blue eyes? And how does Steve Rogers play into all of this?

    Featuring: a superhero's origin, a love story, and a happy ending.

    Summary

    Steve, Bucky, and a sweater that doesn't fit now and likely never will. A birthday fic for the divine wreckingthefinite, who deserves all the good things in life - meaning absolutely the chubbiest Bucky our collective imaginations can conjure into existence and the most ill-fitting sweater Steve could find for him. Happy Birthday, darling!

    Summary

    "I didn't know he did that," Tony said. He knew Bucky liked tucking himself so far under Steve's arm that it was like he was trying to climb into his armpit. But he'd always stayed upright, just kind of plastering himself against Steve's side. This blanket thing was new.

    "Seventy years of skin hunger," Steve said. His voice was just as soft, but for a moment his eyes flickered hot with anger, bright as the candy-colored screen. "He was always tactile. Now, when things get…well, sometimes it helps. The contact."

    And it looked…nice, the two of them together like that: Comfortable. Familiar. Safe. Tony knew what a precarious, fragile thing it was, to feel safe in the middle of the night.

    Summary

    “I think I’m gonna have to hurt some people,” Steve Rogers says, voice tight with rage. The asset assumes that will be him, then laughs at himself for the thought.

    He’s not people.
