    Summary

    When Steve volunteered to infiltrate HYDRA, he was prepared to say "Hail Hydra" and do some terrible things to earn trust. He wasn't prepared to be expected to go along with the sexual abuse of a subordinate with Bucky's face.

    In the words of one reader:

    The asset "knows" it's not Bucky but wants to be, especially if it'll please Steve, and Steve "knows" it's not Bucky but is so starved for his old pal that it's starting not to matter.

    Summary

    “If you wanted, you could share the bed again,” Steve said, still studiously looking at the wall directly in front of him. “We used to do it all the time, before. It isn’t weird. Not for me, anyway.”

    Whatever Bucky had been expecting, that hadn’t been it. “Oh,” he said.

    “I’m gonna go brush my teeth,” Steve said, and disappeared down the hallway.

    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

    Bucky Barnes disappeared from Steve’s life when they were fourteen, just after sharing their first kiss.

    Which is why Steve’s—surprised, is one way of putting it—to suddenly be face to face with Bucky six years later. In Italy. In Steve’s apartment. Their apartment?

    Studying abroad in Florence has been a dream of Steve’s for a long time—he’s got an internship in art conservation and a whole lot of plans for how autumn in this incredible country is going to go. But somehow the universe has found a way to shake things up, with Bucky assigned as his roommate for the semester.

    It’s proving difficult, surrounded by art, wine, and gelato, not to get swept up in the unresolved feelings Steve thought he’d put behind him. And Steve’s pretty sure Bucky isn’t immune either. Being paired up in the most romantic country in the world has to be a sign they’re meant to rekindle their spark.
