    Summary

    It all started with a drink ticket. Or was it with a letter?

    No, probably it all started the day Steve Rogers decided to move into an apartment-share with a guy he's never laid eyes on. And since their agreement is that Steve has the place at night and the other fella takes it over during the day, there's no reason they ever even need to meet.

    Unless there are a whole lot of reasons why they absolutely should.

    Or: Steve pines for Bucky without even knowing he's pining for Bucky thanks to a series of letters and an unusual roommate arrangement in 1930's Brooklyn.

    Summary

    "You doing okay, kid?”

    Steve releases a breath, deciding how honest he wants to be. No point in lying. No point in telling the truth, either. "Glad to see you."

    "That’s not what I asked, but same to you, punk."

    Summary

    “Okay,” Sam says. “Okay. Alright. O-kay. I just, I gotta say, man, when you told me ‘Bucky is a selkie’ this is not... really…. what I... imagined.”
    “What did you imagine?” Steve says. Across his lap - or rather covering his entire body from the waist down - the eight hundred pound tube of blubber that is J.B. Barnes blows a snot bubble.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    In which Bucky is just trying to live life and enjoy his unofficial official table at the obnoxiously hipster coffee shop but some guy named Steve stole his spot.

    Or, the time that Bucky unintentionally befriended the Avengers and had no idea.
