  1. Summary

    Bucky Barnes fucking loves classical music.

    He was five when he touched a piano for the first time, nine when he developed a passionate loathing for it, and fourteen when he found himself through it. He was seventeen when he decided he wanted to major in music- seventeen when he picked up the guitar.

    He was eighteen when Tony Stark ran him over. No matter how impressive it was, his metal prosthetic quickly shut down his piano career; the arm's fine motor control just didn't possess the agility needed in his fingers to play anything advanced.

    And so, Bucky moved to LA at nineteen, taking nothing but the bare minimum necessary, an acoustic guitar, and an electric keyboard. He quickly gained traction as a SoundCloud artist and Instagram star due to his looks, which was all well and good, except for how it... wasn't what he wanted to be doing.

    Thank the heavens for Steve Rogers, though. Steve's been with him every step of the way- the lone constant in Bucky's otherwise downwards spiral.

    He's twenty-three, and he hopes that Steve will stay through the alcohol and drugs, too.

    Summary

    There’s enough moments to create a montage, snapshots of all the 'maybe' and ‘what if’ moments of the past two decades - moments that existed, and kept existing, but kept leading to nothing.

    Or, the one where Grantaire and Enjolras have been best friends for their entire lives, and no one is surprised where they end up, not even them.

    Summary

    Silence used to be peaceful for Bucky. These days it makes him feel like he's waiting for something, like he's listening for the warning sounds of predators approaching.

    Now silence means he's waiting for the other shoe to drop.

    He lives in a beautiful apartment with his husband-to-be and tells himself that everything is just fine. He doesn't sleep, he's scared of putting a foot wrong in case Brock snaps again, and he's desperately lonely, but he has everything he ever wants and that should be enough. It's not like he can complain about being taken care of, even if parts of it aren't exactly his choice.

    Running into his childhood friend (literally) just might change everything. 'Just fine' doesn't seem like enough once Steve walks back into his life. The problem is, Bucky's been stuck in his cage for so long that he's not sure he can leave it on his own.
