    Summary

    Derek has a new neighbor who won't stop looking.

    Excerpt:

    “You’re blind,” Derek said flatly, the anger draining from him so suddenly he felt almost woozy. His vision cleared, his claws sliding back into blunt fingernails.

    “Thanks for the memo, genius,” the kid said acidly. “I can still fucking defend myself, so don’t take another damn step.”

    “Fuck, I...I’m sorry,” Derek stuttered.

    “What?!” The kid’s brow crinkled. “I mean — what?! You’re fucking sorry!?” His lips thinned into a harsh line. “What, is this some kinda Hallmark movie where you’re discovering the error of your ways because you don’t want to rob a blind person?! That’s fucking condescending, man. I’ll have you know that —”

    “Just, wait.” Derek interrupted what was apparently the start of a convincing argument as to why he should rob the kid after all, feeling his head start to spin. “This is — it’s a misunderstanding. I’m — I’m not robbing you. You’re — you’re safe, okay? I’m taking three steps back. Just — just let me explain.”

    “Explain why you came busting into my apartment? Yeah, go right ahead, man, I can’t wait to hear this epic tale.”

    Summary

    It didn’t escape him that Steve shared his assumed last name. “Are you gonna be my cousin?” Bucky asked dully.

    Steve frowned. “Husband, actually,” he said easily, holding up his left hand to show a typical golden band.

    Bucky scowled and closed the door.

    AKA
    An AU in which Bucky is put in the witness protection program and Steve is the agent hired to protect him/pretend to be his husband.

    Summary

    Steve narrowed his eyes. “I’m beginning to suspect I’ve been set up.”

    “I would never,” Natasha said, feigning shock.

    Steve sighed.

    “God fucking dammit,” he heard someone say and looked up.

    AKA
    An AU in which Steve is still Captain America and Bucky is the unfortunate history professor selected to help him understand those references.
