Working Title: Steve Rogers, Freedom Crusader is tired
World of Warcraft AU. Bucky is a runt of a Mag’har orc of the Horde, too small and too gangly and missing an arm, but he tried his best to help his faction with whatever he can, even if that means just being a hunter and a babysitter to his orphaned cousins. Steve Rogers is a Freedom Crusader, a paladin at the service of the High King of Azeroth, and one of the king’s most trusted fighters.
Thanks to the High King Anduin’s antics, they meet, and become friends eventually, and then something else maybe, but there’s a war in the horizon, and they’ll have to prove their worth to their factions, to themselves and to each other.

Steve has finally reached the age where all those from his homeland journey out into the land of the Six to begin the most important quest of their lives; the search for the one thing that will give his life meaning, and allow him to finally grow into his true potential - his Treasure. Except, just three months in, it looks like Steve will never complete his task, dying as one of the Lost. Or at least it appears that way until a mysterious and deadly stranger named Bucky emerges from the shadows, in a dance of blades and blood, saving Steve’s life. Through circumstance and desperation, the two become travelling companions, Bucky teaching Steve about these strange lands he has found himself in, and Steve getting the both of them into more trouble than even Steve knows is good for them. As time passes, and their friendship grows, Steve learns that Bucky has secrets of his own, and a task he has sworn to fulfill. Steve only hopes he can change Bucky’s mind before it’s too late. It takes him far too long to realize it, but Bucky might, just might, be what Steve has been searching for all this time, and unless he can alter Bucky’s course, it’s not only Steve who will be Lost, but Bucky as well.

When Steve is seventeen, his mother dies. With no one to take care of him, he will be taken to the castle as a slave. But Steve won’t let that happen. He runs. He runs straight into the one place everyone knows to never go into—the seemingly endless maze on the outskirts of town. He doesn’t expect to be alive in the morning. He doesn’t expect a lot of things. He certainly doesn’t expect to meet someone else in the maze.
“I choose death over you!” Steve yells back, unable to fight the smile on his face.
Rumlow looks like he’s about to snarl a reply except Steve doesn’t get to hear it because the hedges of the maze suddenly move in front of his eyes and the entrance is closed off. The men are no longer there—he can’t even hear them. And Steve’s giddiness evaporates into resignation, because now it is over.
No one goes into the maze. Because no one ever comes out.
