"I want to help you, Poindexter, I really do. You're important to this team and the organization is proud to have you; but, son, I can't fix what I don't know about." His gaze drills right into Will's carefully crafted armor when he pleads, "You've got to talk to us."

"I had my fingers down my throat, that’s nothing to be proud of.”
“Right, and instead of following through on that instinct you came here and asked for help."
“I should be better than this by now—”
“Stop,” Bucky interrupts him, not unkindly. “You know there’s no use in entertaining those thoughts. Recovery isn’t linear, and some days will be harder than others; you know that.

Will sighs and runs a hand through his hair.
“I had to up my dose at the beginning of the semester and I know it’s common for SSRIs to have, uh, these kinds of side effects, but, it’s been almost two months since I’ve had an orgasm and I feel like I’m losing my goddamn mind.”
Derek is still waiting for his higher brain functions to come back online, that’s the only reason he can think of for why he blurts out, “What have you tried?”
Chowder sounds close to tears when he protests, “You fucking cut yourself, Dex! I think my reaction is appropriate!”
Nursey doesn’t know what his face is doing, but it feels like someone just punched him in the stomach.
“When Eddie regained consciousness, the first thing he noticed was the sharp ache radiating from his shoulder.
The second… was that Buck was not there.”

A year after the Winter Soldier failed his mission in DC, Bucky Barnes is doing his best to stay under the radar from both Hydra and Steve Rogers. His hope for a peaceful day-to-day life in limbo goes awry, however, when he meets Queens’ newest hero; a pure-hearted kid with a death wish and a ridiculous pair of red and blue pajamas.
The last thing Steve expects when he finally tracks Bucky down is that, not only has the man been living in Queens all this time, right under his nose, but also that, in the two years since they last saw each other, Bucky somehow acquired a kid.
Alternatively: How Peter Parker effectively fucks over Bucky Barnes, and also totally saves him.
