    Summary

    Regaining consciousness after cryo is always a slow, gradual process. Bucky’s hearing is usually what comes back to him first, the sounds around him well known by now; the hissing of the cooling valves, the gurgling of the tubes, the muted voices of the scientists and doctors on the other side of the glass, the beeping and humming of the medical equipment, and—music?

    Once he’s able to open his eyes, minutes later, Bucky is reminded that, even though the situation seems and feels familiar, he’s waking up to something entirely different these days.

    He isn’t in some dark, underground HYDRA lab, for one, but a hospital room with giant floor to ceiling windows that offer a spectacular view of Wakanda’s uniquely beautiful flora. To prevent unnecessary trauma-related stress, Bucky remembers T’Challa explaining, and it’s definitely working. No one is wearing masks, either, not Bucky, and not any of the doctors. He can see their faces as they work, and when they glance over at him, they smile and wave. Smells are muted inside the cryo tube, but Bucky can make out faint traces of vanilla and orange, not a hint of disinfectant, or piss, or blood, or something even worse in the air.

    And then there’s the kid.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers enjoyed running. Possibly more than any person should, really, but even his love of running didn’t explain his inability to stop grinning like a lunatic during his morning run. He was trying desperately to smother a goofy smile each and every time it forced its way back onto his face, but if he thought he was going to get it past Bucky, he was dead wrong.

    Once he’d woken up enough for his brain to function, the reason why became immediately obvious, and Bucky couldn’t keep his mouth shut. “Oh my god, you got laid!”

    Set after Operation Iron Snuggle, but before Mother's Day.

    Summary

    A baseline human is precisely what you would expect: just like you and me. A beta is all that and more: the loyalty and devotion of a pack-minded upbringing, the power and healing of the wolf, and none of the fuss of an alpha or omega. They're handsome and bold, talented and historically the subject of fantastic and heroic tales; all in all, the dream for any human inclined to romance.

    Alphas and omegas... that gets a little trickier.

    The path forward seems daunting and there are challenges ahead, but may be both he and Tony can find hope in the most unexpected place - each other.

    Summary

    “I need you to marry me,” Tony blurts over the phone.

    Oh no, is Steve’s first thought, and the second is, I knew I shouldn’t have let him blow me in the kitchen five months ago. “All right,” his mouth says for him, and his feet must be thinking ahead too because he’s suddenly out of his chair and crossing the room to open his closet so he can get dressed and go to Tony.

    -
    Or: considering that he and Tony have been best friends for the past fifteen years and friends-with-benefits for the past five months, Steve assumes that pretending to be Tony's fiancé will work out just fine. Unsurprisingly, he's wrong.
