    "if you could | retell the tale wouldn’t you want | to tell it kinder? wouldn’t you | want to give them peace, even love, where you could?"
     

    a series of technically unconnected works that have nothing to do with one another but have underlying notes that rhyme. subtle twists that seem familiar the further you go along, words that prompt déjà vu, plots that leave you asking questions of what if, only to find out that, oh, what if has been answered in another tale. the alternate universes of alternate universes, the plot is different but the premise is the same. the hurt is always bitter and the love is always sweet. or so the rhymes go.

    Summary

    The one where Tony thinks Steve is wound too tightly and decides he needs a nudge in the right direction so he can release some... steam. Via Super-soldier strength Viagra-esque means. But dosing a super soldier is tricky business. Luckily, Bucky is there to lend a helping hand. And then some.

    Summary

    Bucky’s determination to take care of Steve once he hit puberty and came into his designation as a dominant was annoying. And unwelcome. When Bucks ships out it’s almost a relief.
    Then Steve gets the serum. Apparently, it’s changed him from a normal person into a dominant. Except that he doesn’t feel like a dominant. Apparently, that’s just something to do with his hormones being out of whack. There’s drugs for that…. The drugs don’t help.
    Then he rescues Bucky and everything begins to make a horrible amount of sense. Steve isn’t a dominant, he’s a submissive. Can he convince the man he spent so many years rejecting that things are different now?

    Summary

    After ‘The Snap’ Steve has a mental breakdown and just…snaps. He goes back to see Peggy, hoping it will spur Bucky into restarting their relationship. It doesn't. He wishes he could be normal enough to stay with Peggy in the past. He can't. And so Steve comes back to 2023 determined to retire, gives Sam the shield and slinks off in a photostatic veil intending to die in peace (potentially by suicide). But, then Nat knocks on his door and tells him he's needed back on the team. Everything is different now. Bucky is in charge. Everyone calls him James and his ability to keep it professional makes Steve want to die. Steve would give anything to go back to the way things were, Bucky as his lover, his dom (not that anyone called it that in the 40's), really his everything. As the missions wear on it becomes clear to everyone that Steve likely won’t survive the heartbreak. When Bucky realizes it too, everything begins to change.

    Summary

    He’s dragged forward, his thrashing not doing a thing against the hydra’s shocking strength. At its widest, his tentacle is as thick as Bucky’s wrist. It tapers off towards the end. It’s subtly textured, not slimy like expected, but no less terrifying for it. The hydra pauses once Bucky’s under the cave’s opening, halfway between Pierce and the darkness on the other side.

    “Johann is dead,” says the hydra. “I killed him.”

    The words mean nothing to Bucky. But when he twists around to see, Pierce’s face is bloodless.

    It’s the first time he’s seeing true fear on Alexander Pierce’s face.

    “The deal you made with him is null and void, Alexander Pierce,” the hydra says. “And your people shall be better off for it.”

    Pierce’s face tightens further.

    “But you,” the hydra says – no rumbles, his voice making the water tremble. “You, not so much. I don’t appreciate this sacrifice.”

     

    -
    Bucky is chosen as his shoal's annual sacrifice to the hydra that lurks in their territory. Things take an unexpected turn when the monster that greets him in the dark turns out to be a wholly unfamiliar beast.
