  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

    Natasha stops by on a Tuesday, early enough in the morning that it would have been late by Steve’s old standards. Now, though, it takes him nearly three minutes just to limp to the door, yawning, and when he opens it he has to lean heavily on the doorframe.

    “Hi,” Natasha says, over the beginnings of birdsong. She’s not alone. “Can we come in?”

    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.”
