    Summary

    Bucky Barnes grew up thinking he could do anything, and is coming to terms with the fact that his parents might have oversold the idea of being an adult. He's an average 30-something Brooklynite with an average job, an average life, and a (smaller than) average apartment. So, he compares his life to the colorful Instagram pictures his friends post while longing for the excitement and brightness of their online presences.

    Steve Rogers has his dream job as a master stylist at the Red Room Salon, along with his dream apartment, and almost his dream life. Except, he's terrified of getting too close to people after his last real relationship left him self-conscious of being too hard in both personality and body type. While most of the emotional wounds have healed, their scars still linger.

    What happens when Steve and Bucky meet one night over an accidental gesticulation gone wild alongside a smack in the face?

    (Or: the meet-ugly with soft!Bucky; unicorn!haired Steve; good bros Sharon, Nat, and Bobbi; human disaster Clint Barton; everyday hero Sam; plus a side of Spideypool. There's smut, feels, and a story that's a bit more autobiographical than the author intended.)

    Summary

    For better or for worse (usually worse), Steve Rogers has been the most famous guy in the room for a while. And though newsreels have given way to YouTube, people's reactions haven't changed much in seventy-some years. Steve's become an expert at keeping his head down and getting on with his life.

    A head-on collision on a busy street sends books flying and sweeps Steve off his feet. The point of impact has a name: James. A charming mess of long hair, thick glasses, and a crooked, not-quite-smile. If he recognizes Steve, he chooses not to comment, placing him firmly in Steve's good graces.

    As far as Steve can tell, they might be Bogie and Bacall all over again, save for the group of idiots with selfie sticks who surround them. But for once, the request isn't for Steve.

    Which begs the question: if James is James, then who the hell is Bucky?

    Summary

    Steve winces. “Long story. We need to get out of here, there’s too many of them and I don’t need you getting caught in the cross—what’s that?”

    In the shadows, it looks like there’s a body prone on the floor. Steve squints. “Is that a body?”

    “There’s a perfectly reasonable explanation for this,” James whispers.

    The footsteps draw closer. Steve breathes. He’s in an alley with a suspect in one of his murder cases, who happens to have another dead body with him. Meanwhile, behind him, gunmen are chasing him down right after he refused Pierce's orders to drop the exact same case.

    There’s nobody to trust.


    Or the one where supernatural creatures walk the earth, Bucky's a mage, and Steve's the police captain who has no clue.
