    Summary

    “I’m—I’m tired of fighting, Bucky,” he whispered, choking on his words, so damn ashamed to hear them coming out of his own mouth.

    Bucky shook his head. “Then don’t fight anymore, Steve.” He said it like it was obvious, like it was easy, like it was an actual choice.

    Steve looked down at himself, at his body made for war, upgraded, enhanced, super. He sighed. “I don’t know how to do anything else.”

     

    In 2023, Steve Rogers lays down his shield, joins Twitter, and finds purpose beyond the battlefield—with Bucky Barnes at his side.

    A sequel to ‘In Repose,' but it definitely stands alone.

    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

    When Steve opens the door, Bucky is standing on the other side, a few feet closer than he’d been the night before, and the cat is sitting back upon his shoulder.

    “Hi, Bucky,” Steve says, smiling like this is a normal thing to be happening to them.

    ***

    Bucky shows up at Steve's door a week after he pulled him out of the Potomac. He brings his cat with him.

    Eventually, they stay.

    Summary

    Bucky feels like he’s been kicked square in the chest. He can’t breathe, he’s lost his wind, he swears the world goes fuzzy for a moment because he would know that voice anywhere, and okay — he nearly throws Shuri and T’Challa out of the way, might have barrelled them right over if they didn’t wisely (and, amusingly, in unison) step out of his way themselves — bounds across the room in like three steps —

    “Don’t!” Steve Rogers says, and Bucky skids to a stop, literally, probably looks like a cartoon character.
