  2. Summary

    Steve's lips scan close over Sam's neck and maybe it's that music cracks them both open; sends the awkwardness of flirting straight out the window, and makes room for this.

  4. Summary

    When a mission against Hydra goes south and Steve is found unconscious, 90 lbs. and barely five feet tall, Bucky's pretty sure he's gonna lose his mind.

    It somehow only gets worse when Steve wakes up and is the exact furious spitfire Bucky remembers, taken right out of 1936.

  5. Summary

    "You keep asking me what I want," Bucky manages, eventually. "But on any given day, my number one priority is to get through the day alive and myself, and to do it without killing anyone. Everything else is extra."

    Summary

    For someone he'd hero-worshipped for so long, Steve Rogers in the flesh is a pretty big disappointment. For one thing, he keeps looking at Tony as though he reminds him of someone else, and even if he never says anything, Tony's pretty sure it's his father. A lifetime of not measuring up to Howard's expectations is more than enough, thank you very much, and he's certainly not going to make an effort to live up to any of Steve's. Steve's pretty clearly failed to live up to his expectations, in any case, and that's not hypocritical at all.

    Summary

    “You’re sending me on a two-man undercover,” Bucky says, helplessly, “staying in a vineyard retreat, alone, with Wilson.”

    “Pack your swim trunks,” Daisy adds, “apparently it’s got a hot tub.”

    Bucky looks at Sam. Sam looks back at Bucky. Sam’s arms are crossed over his chest, his forearms bare. Bucky carefully doesn’t look at Sam’s forearms, or the way his t-shirt is pulled tight over his shoulders, straining just a little at the seams. Bucky’s not looking at that at all. He makes eye contact, careful to keep his face neutral.

    Sam’s eyes are soft and dark. Maybe a little amused. He has very long eyelashes.

    Bucky swallows hard.

    “Great,” he says. “That’s just— great.”

    Summary

    Bucky tapped him on the shoulder, swaying back and forth a little as he waited for the man to turn around. “Hello,” he said, and then promptly forgot what else he was going to say, because this guy was fucking beautiful. “Wow. Good face.”

    Two of the guy’s friends, a man wearing a suit that fit so well it had to be bespoke and a man with a cute little gap between his front teeth, started cracking up. The petite redhead sitting next to them cocked her head to the side and pulled her phone out of her handbag. Beautiful Face just looked kind of pained, so Bucky redirected. He was a gentleman. He could take a hint. No hitting on beautiful guys who were uncomfortable with that sort of thing, no matter how lickable their jawlines were.

    “Hello,” he repeated, doing his best to mind his manners. “I’m very sorry to bother you. Can I have a piggy-back ride?”
