    Summary

    Steve doesn’t like bullies, on principle. It's less about justice, or decency, or righteous indignation; more about the look in the eyes of the people getting stepped on, the people getting trampled, the people getting lost.

    So it cuts all the deeper, when Steve recognizes strength, precision, endurance, capacity: sees the pieces of himself not born but made, reflected in this body, this person, this weapon: the Winter Soldier.

    It slices through Steve’s soul when he returns the Soldier's gaze, and reads the only thing that lives in the deadness that pervades behind those irises in the night.

    It’s not You can’t beat me.

    It’s more You can’t stop them.

     

    For the prompt: The AU where Steve Rogers sees the best in everyone, and it is that quality that brings him back the person he loves most in the world; where Steve reaches out to help the Winter Soldier on principle, but when the muzzle-mask comes off, he finds Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    “What made you like this?” Steve asks. “You’re strong.”

    Was there another experiment going on? Like Project Rebirth?

    “Oh, I dunno, you know how it is,” she says. “Latchkey kids, children of divorce, growing up ‘chosen,’ -- it’s complicated.”

     

    Steve and Buffy are tracking the same dangerous artifact when their paths cross.

     

    (Takes place between the The Winter Soldier & Age of Ultron /Post-BtVS [not comic compliant].)
