    Summary

    She doesn't know why, and he has no intention of telling her. 'You reminded me of my mother baking cupcakes my junior year of high school and now every time I see you I feel more content than I have since my accident' is an odd reason to provide someone with an infinite amount of coffee.

    Still, that feeling of contentment follows this girl every time she walks into his shop and free coffee he provides.

    Darcy sighs and takes her drink, shoving the five in the tip jar as she'd begun doing about a month in. "One of these days you're gonna let me pay you what your time is worth."

    Bucky snorts, "Just did."

    He barely catches her departing words, "With an ass like that I'd say your time's worth a hell of a lot more."

    His left hand refuses to listen to him after that; he spills half a bag of ground espresso beans and a gallon of milk by the time she comes back from the bathroom.

    This is my coffee shop au.

    Summary

    Darcy thinks looking at Bucky Barnes is a great way to pass time, but he's pretty scarce even though they live in the same building. After a few nudges from Steve and scamming the Secret Santa gift exchange, she manages to get Bucky alone, only to realizes he's a lot more than just a hot body. Bucky can't seem to remember how to interact with people, but Steve seems to think that the girl from the labs can help. It doesn't take long to realize that Steve might be right.

    Summary

    Darcy is 99% sure James Buchanan Barnes hates her. She is loud, brash, pushy, and knows she can be obnoxious. She can own that. And after everything he's been through, it seems like Barnes likes things quiet and mellow. AKA, very not Darcy. And really, she can't blame him. But still, it kinda sucks. Especially when he's the one stuck protecting her when armed henchmen come for her and Jane.

    Summary

    The threat of the Winter Soldier programming taking over is one that everyone at the tower (with high enough clearance to even know about him) takes very seriously. Before he's brought in, there are security drill after security drill, all kinds of briefings to read, strategically-placed and reinforced panic rooms, the whole nine yards. Neither Darcy nor Jane are particularly worried about it, it's unlikely they'll cross his path in general, but they do everything they're told anyway.

    It turns out the prep they were given wasn't entirely unwarranted, but it does end up being a little useless. They were told to remain nonthreatening, which is easy to do, and to remain calm, which isn't. They were also told that the Soldier would be angry and violent, which he isn't. The blank coldness melts from his face, leaving him looking around him, confusion on his face.

    Summary

    "You shouldn't be so hard on Barnes," Jane says from the lab bench where she's working, and Darcy doesn't know where to start with that statement.
