    Summary

    The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

    Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.

    Summary

    Bucky’s face is gaunt and covered in stubble, and he licks his chapped lips. His voice is rusty from disuse when he speaks: “Why do you call me that?”

    Thanks to the cutout in the top of Bucky’s right glove, Steve can see the hand stamp that looks like Captain America’s shield against his skin. That means he’s been through the exhibit, and Steve thinks he knows what he’s really asking. He can’t help it—a faint smile tugs at his lips as he replies, “You never liked James. Said it sounded pompous.”

    Bucky cocks his head. “Usurper,” he mutters. “Supplanter, deceiver.” His mouth curls in a grimace. “Maybe that’s what you should call me now.”

    Summary

    It's just an innocuous comment, that's how it starts.

    He's not even sure why he says it; it's too much, entirely, pushing things too far, but— “It's not—one and done, you know? I got, uh. Stamina.”

    “Stamina,” Bucky repeats, flat. “Uh huh.” And then he's throwing back the rest of his drink, wiping his mouth with the back of his hand, turning to Steve and squaring his jaw all challenge. “How many times?”

    “How—”

    “Yeah. How many times. In one go.”

    “I—” Steve starts, flushing so hot he feels like he must be a beacon in the bar, shining through the grey-out. Bucky's still looking at him, curious, and something else under it, something Steve can't place. “Four,” he says, compulsively too-honest in the face of Bucky’s gaze, and Bucky's eyes widen.
