    Summary

    On the day aliens fall to earth through a hole ripped in the sky, Bucky Barnes is pulled from the rubble of the Battle of New York by a mysterious man wearing a costume and a cowl.

    The next day, he wakes up in the hospital and makes a new friend named Steve Rogers - a certified weirdo with a deck of cards and plenty of time on his hands.

    A postcard, a text, and a thousand miles of asphalt later, Bucky's still trying to understand the man who came from the stars.

    Steve, meanwhile, is finally putting the journey ahead of the destination.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is doing great. He survived a tough childhood filled with illness and childhood asthma to become the owner of a lucrative "box" in Brooklyn, New York, alongside his best friend, Sam Wilson. He also works as a freelance artist and is slowly finding success in that side of his work. Overall, life is pretty awesome.

    And then he gets dragged to a yoga class, and a man with a full tattoo sleeve and a devastating smile just might upend Steve's great, normal life.

    Or - the yoga and Crossfit AU literally nobody asked for.

    Summary

    The complete story of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes--not quite cradle to grave; more like Brooklyn cradle to icy grave to Russia and DC to Eastern Europe and South Korea, and back to New York again.

    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.
