    Summary

    “Is this the part where we turn from morticians into ghost hunters?” Sam asked as they flipped out the basement lights and locked the door back behind them.

    ”I sure hope not.”

    The men began their hustle back up toward the state rooms out front when they passed the cooler and heard the noise again.

    Steve and Sam both stopped in their tracks.

    “Is that-“ Steve turned on his heel and pointed toward the refrigerated room where people’s bodies were stored.

    “You know I ain’t ever been scared of dead people,” Sam answered, “...but if someone in that fridge is knocking, all you’re gonna see of my brown ass is a pinprick on the horizon as I get the hell away from here as fast as I can move.”

    Summary

    A prince, a guardsman, a garden.

    When a curse is placed upon Prince James which says he is to be the instrument of his kingdom’s destruction, it’s decided that for his own good (and everyone else’s) he should be sent away from the royal city and the palace. Bucky goes into his exile with only a single solitary guardsman for both company and protection.

    Steve doesn’t know what to make of his new assignment—it could be a promotion or a punishment in equal measure. Personal guard to one of the royal family is an honor, but now he’s locked in a walled garden, uncertain of just who it is he’s been tasked to protect. Yet Prince James seems set on surprising him from the start.

    (The rest of the story is a fairy tale, or something like it...)

    Summary

    “Trump said the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat. You wanna be a good Democrat, punk?” Bucky seethes. 

    Bucky decidedly ignores Steve’s mutterings of “not a Democrat”, and continues to bandage his leg. 

    A 21st century AU where Steve is a freelance illustrator and reckless protestor, and Bucky is the one-armed volunteer medic trying his best to keep Steve alive.

    Summary

    Bucky has always wanted a dog. Now finally he has one and it’s everything he wanted and more. It opens up his life in ways he never expected. He especially didn’t expect to meet Steve at the dog park. He didn’t expect they’d become friends. He really didn’t expect that they’d be dating. Unfortunately nobody’s clued Bucky in to that last part.

    -----

    He feels frozen in panic. It’s their second day together and he’s lost her. He’s lost his dog.

    He’s spiralling until suddenly there’s a little yip noise and Bucky snaps his head up to see his dog in front of him, in the arms of someone else.

    “Ohmygod,” he hisses out in pure relief, breathing hard. He doesn’t think he’s ever been so relieved in all his life.

    “Is this your dog?” the owner of the arms asks.
