    Summary

    Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

    (A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

    Summary

    Later, the Soldier doesn’t know what‘s worse: the horror of remembering, or the nameless fear of all the things he has forgotten.

    AKA Soldat’s Symphony in Suffering. Contents:Suffering™ of one (1) amnesiac amputee. Steve Rogers may be a Sweet Summer Child™, but memories or no memories, Bucky Barnes is a Bitter Winter Baby™ full of salt and sass. No amount of mindwipes can erase “fuck” from his vocabulary, and no amount of brainwashing can make him anything less than a sarcastic, overprotective asshole. Warning for Very Bad Russian and a cringingly inaccurate depiction of how to amnesia.

    Third in the series, but can be read as a standalone.

    Summary

    Bucky almost started looking at their boots. Being a Howler guaranteed you the top grade. They even got the original pork shoulder SPAM to choke on, instead of off-brand. The first few cans had been a relief. The next hundred, less so.

    Next to Bucky’s feet was a breathing fella, eyes cracked open and watering. Head caved in around a rock. He smelled a few more agonizing hours from death unless it got cold enough. No fear stench. The fear stench was good, in its own way. Like somebody swallowing wrong and then getting enough air to cough. It was when you had the wet, airless choke a fella had cause to worry.

    No boots. To the victor'd already gone the spoils.
