    Summary

    The club is Dante's, the room is the Cage, and Dean is only there because he hates himself. He's buzzdrunk from the shots he had at the upstairs bar, and dizzy from the heat. Ugly music thumps his bones, the juddering bassline overlaid with exactly the sort of discordant techno-trash he otherwise wouldn't stomach in a fit. The Cage smells of sweat, sex and spilled beer, the tight space full of half- and near-naked bodies gyrating against each other and – shit, is that guy actually naked? He is, and the two men sandwiching him on the dancefloor look pretty pleased about it. Dean, in his jeans and tee, is practically overdressed, and as he stands there, equal parts aroused and ashamed, he has a brief moment of clarity. Get out. Go home. Stop punishing yourself.

    Almost, he does. But through the din and crush, he suddenly feels eyes on him, and when he finds their owner, he remembers why he came.

    Summary

    and there are some like us,
    just walking, making our feet move ahead of us,
    a little bored, a little lost, a little angry,
    walking as though we were really going somewhere,
    walking as if there was something to see at Adelaide or maybe on King,
    something that will give a fair return for this use of shoe-leather,
    something that will make us smile with a strange new
    happiness, a lost but recovered joy.

    Summary

    “Hey Buck, what's wrong?”

    Bucky grimaces as he sits down next to Steve. “It aches sometimes,” he says, as he rotates his left arm.

    Steve puts down the report he’s reading. “I could massage it for you? I had a physiotherapist after I came out of the ice. The massage really helped when I overdid things while getting back into condition.”

    “You?” Bucky pauses mid-rotation, a look of patent disbelief on his face. “Overdo things? Say it ain’t so.”

    “Very funny.” He tries to ignore the way his heart is pounding. “You want that massage or what.”

    Summary

    Maybe it's some weird acoustics of the shower area, maybe he's just attuned to Steve, but after he loops the chain over his neck and drops the tags under his shirt, his enhanced hearing picks up a small, shuddering gasp from Steve. Suddenly, he’s sixteen again, rubbing circles into Steve’s back as Steve struggles for air, he’s nearly a hundred and watching his metal hand choke the life from Steve—

    He heads towards the shower area, needing to reassure himself that Steve is fine.

    When he walks in, he’s confronted by the sight of Steve’s naked ass and back. Steve’s got one hand braced on the wall and the other hand... the other hand is somewhere in front of him, just about where his—

    Oh.

    Oh fuck.

    Summary

    “I got you a present” is always an ominous phrase coming from Tony. It could mean a nice cake from the fancy French patisserie a few blocks from the tower, or a rare supercar, or even a fleet of strippers. Or socks. That one time it had been socks.
