    Summary

    "Where's Yasha?"

    "Get your things together," Rogers says, as he pulls his own suitcase out of the wardrobe where he'd left it and starts packing. "We have to leave."

    "Where's Yasha?" Natasha repeats, standing, her weapon held loosely in her hand.

    "We don't have time for this," Rogers says without looking up. He throws the last of his clothes in his suitcase and slams it shut. "Get your things."

    She grabs his arm and pulls him to face her.

    "Where. Is. Yasha." She keeps her voice calm, her tone smooth, but there's steel behind it.

    "They have him." Rogers peels her hand carefully off his arm. "They have him, and if we don't leave now, they'll have us."

    Romanoff, Bukonin and Rogers are the best field agents in Alexander Waverly's United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. But even the best can make mistakes. So, when Bukonin is snatched by Hydra, it's up to Romanoff and Rogers to rescue him. And for both of them, the stakes are so much more than professional.

    Summary

    "In the autumn of 1940, a darkness fell over New York. From the Bronx down to Staten Island, stories were told on every street corner of something in the dark; something that made the hair on the back of your neck rise up, and only made your pulse slow once you had crossed the threshold of your own front door."
     
    As if Steve Rogers doesn't have enough problems, some seriously bad decision-making leads to Bucky finding him half dead and covered in blood in an alley way. Like always, Bucky patches him up, but there's something decidedly different about Steve. For one thing his heart, which had never beat quite right in the first place, now it doesn't appear to be beating at all....

    But since when has he ever let anything hold him back?

    Summary

    “They all think you're dead, you know.”

    “And?” Steve asks.

    “And you're an American icon. A hero. Don't you think they should know that they're mourning in vain?”

    “They thought I was dead before.” He says eventually. “They can cope.”

    Or: The world thinks that Steve Rogers was killd by Thanos. Bucky and his friends know better.

    Summary

    Bucky’s gaze was fixed on Steve. He could feel it, though he couldn’t get up the courage to look Bucky right in the eye just yet. Because he was right. This had always been between them, as long as Steve could remember, and nothing—not girls, not a war, not a lost lifetime for each of them—had done anything to weaken it

     

    Why was Steve brave about everything but this?

    Summary

    Bucky’s a block and a half away when he sees Steve — and it’s unmistakably Steve, all narrow shoulders and flailing fists and the 13-year-old adolescent rage he carries with him like a Roman banner — starting a fight with the O’Reilly brothers on the boardwalk along the East River. He speeds up his steps when he sees Steve land a solid first strike on Wally and get a fist to the mouth in payback. He breaks into a jog when Eddie grabs ahold of Steve’s arm, twisting it behind his back as he struggles, giving Wally the opportunity to land another hit to Steve’s face.

    He starts to run, to sprint, when Steve pulls away from Eddie, over-balances, and tips head-first over the curb and into the water ten feet below.
