    Summary

    “I think I’m ready to date again,” Steve said.

    “What,” Natasha said.

    “What?” Clint said, lowering his binoculars. He blinked at the dumbstruck look on the Captain’s face, then followed his gaze to where he was staring dopily at—at the Winter fucking Soldier.

    “Steve, no,” Clint groaned.

    Or: Steve courts the Winter Soldier.

    Summary

    “What is the music?” Steve asks.
     
    “That? Oh, just the warp and weft of Creation as it births itself, moment by moment,” the pale man says, cocks his head at Steve and smiles a crooked little half-smile, and—
     
    “Teach me,” Steve says, and the man grins.

     

    An urban historical fantasy AU in which Steve Rogers' Da is an immortal sorcerer from another world. This changes some things some things a Hell of a lot, and some things not at all.

    Or: sorcery, sex, soldiering, spy craft and shapeshifting.

    Summary

    It’s the gunman, the shooter from Steve’s apartment, striding into the open. Black leather and Kevlar and the muzzle across his jaw and that fucking metal arm. And his song is broken, a nightmare—like his soul has been carved out, like they crammed the vessel of his body full of rusty razor blades and landmines, and every time he moves he’s cutting himself deeper.

     

    Steve Rogers is—look, he’s fine. He’s busy: neck-deep in spies, pulling the long con where he pretends to be Captain America, SHIELD agent, and not a pack of wolves and six kinds of trauma piled up inside a trench coat. Because the end of the world is coming and he needs allies; this tiny blue-green planet needs a shield, only—

    Only it turns out he’s not the only one playing the long game inside SHIELD. Hydra are not as dead as the history books would have you believe.

    And neither is Bucky Barnes.

    A wolf age, a wind age. Shields are sundered.

    Summary

    In 1944 it was about survival. Maybe it still is. Steve chases Bucky (and himself); Bucky chases himself (and, maybe, Steve); and Natasha's along because someone has to be the grownup around here and stop everyone from getting killed by rogue HYDRA experiments.
