    Summary

    Bucky pretends to be asleep when Steve crawls into bed, too tired to feel guilty over the quivery pleasure that settles in his belly when Steve’s arm brushes his. Steve falls asleep in about five minutes flat, unconsciously wedging his icy toes against Bucky’s leg. Bucky doesn’t move him.

    He drifts to sleep in a comfortable haze and tries not to wonder where this feeling was two hours ago when he had Marie in his lap.

    Summary

    He lets out a long sigh and watches Bucky. Back home he was always too vain to let more than a day’s worth of stubble build up, but now he’s got about three days of scruff on his chin. He shouldn’t look handsome like this. His eyes are shut, but Steve can tell by his breathing that he’s still awake. The cat is curled up on his stomach and purring like an idling motor.

    “He’s actually pretty cute.”

    Bucky smiles softly, too sleepy to make whole faces.

    “Damn right,” he hums. He’s stroking the cat’s fur, which is soft and fine now that it’s clean. He looks so open and inviting. Steve doesn’t close his eyes, watching Bucky’s gentle fingers and trying to come up with a plausible excuse to go touch him.

    Summary

    Burnt out from his high-powered ad job, Bucky is in need of a serious vacation. He heads for idyllic Shield Bay, MA for the summer with his dog, hoping to relax and gain a bit of perspective. On the recommendation of a friendly restaurateur, he heads to Rogers Rentals where he meets burly, beautiful, boat renter Steve. Neither of them is looking for a relationship, but they can have a good time for the summer. After all, they’re adults, they can totally handle just fooling around for a few months without making it more complicated. Simple.

    Summary

    This was requested by @smilesguaranteed on Tumblr, based on this prompt: "Ok, this is kinda involved but Steve/Bucky au where Steve originally only knew Bucky as the Winter Soldier but then meets his pre-brainwashed self due to time travel shenanigans."

    This is highly delayed because it went far beyond the original target of 15k words. My most sincere apologies, smiles, and thank you for your patience. I'm posting without beta or even a re-read, because I want to be done.

    PLEASE DO NOT THINK TOO HARD ABOUT THE TIME TRAVEL SCIENCE, friends. Just...*handwave*

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier knows that sometimes, in order to make the kill, you must destroy what the Target lives for.

    Steve Rogers knows that he can't fight his captors. If he fights, they'll kill Bucky. But the price of his life is steep.

    Natasha Romanov would rather die than watch the Soldier struggle. It reminds her too much of herself.

    Tony Stark has nothing left to live for, but he's needed. So all these miserable motherfuckers better stay alive, too.

    Bruce Banner just wants to not be needed. And maybe he isn't - not for the Other Guy, not this time.

    Thor knows not what curse lies over Midgard, but it has taken his heart, and he will have vengeance.

    Sam Wilson is sick and tired of his friends getting hurt. What good is flying if you can't stop people from hitting the ground?

    Clint Barton never expected to be a leader. But a leader he is, and no one else is going to die on his watch.

    ---

    A story in which the first wave of Project Insight succeeds, and the Avengers must pick up the pieces and find a way to stop Hydra from completing its work with Zola's algorithm.
