    Summary

    “You’re probably close to finishing college, and you could desperately use any money you can get to pay back your loans. It’s probably why you do this.” Tony’s voice is low, filled with intent. He cocks his head dangerously. “Yet, when you approach the richest person in the room, you don’t ask for money, you don’t pitch your services, and you don’t try to sell me on some shit idea that you want funded. Instead, you decide to play the role of karma by fucking over your douchebag of a date.” Tony smooths one of his hands down Bucky’s chest. "Why’s that Bucky? Just want the satisfaction of doing the right thing?”

    “What do you really want, Barnes?” His words are loaded like a gun with potential.

    “What I want, Mr. Stark, is for you to wreck me.”

    OR

    Bucky Barnes is trying to make enough money as an escort to take care of his sister after she loses an arm in the war, and Tony just wants to feel a semblance of control after aliens try to attack New York. They happen to find each other and strike up a mutually beneficial arrangement (sugar, sugar), but is their chance meeting really just coincidence?

    Summary

    “I want it to be Barton,” Bucky said, and Clint let loose a breath that he hadn’t realized he’d been holding, because of course Barnes would choose…

    …Barton? As in Clint? As in himself?

    Aw, what.

    Summary

    For better or for worse (usually worse), Steve Rogers has been the most famous guy in the room for a while. And though newsreels have given way to YouTube, people's reactions haven't changed much in seventy-some years. Steve's become an expert at keeping his head down and getting on with his life.

    A head-on collision on a busy street sends books flying and sweeps Steve off his feet. The point of impact has a name: James. A charming mess of long hair, thick glasses, and a crooked, not-quite-smile. If he recognizes Steve, he chooses not to comment, placing him firmly in Steve's good graces.

    As far as Steve can tell, they might be Bogie and Bacall all over again, save for the group of idiots with selfie sticks who surround them. But for once, the request isn't for Steve.

    Which begs the question: if James is James, then who the hell is Bucky?

    Summary

    Things are practically perfect, as far as Steve’s concerned. He and Bucky are happy. Healthy. Working through their shit and living a normal life in Brooklyn. Said normality extends to their nice, regular, fulfilling sex life. Which isn't to say it’s perfect - maybe Steve has a fantasy or two he hasn’t shared. Certain proclivities he’s happy to indulge privately. Why bother Bucky?

    It’s fine. Really. Until the day Bucky comes home early and catches Steve with his pants down. Literally.
