    Summary

    But the trash monsters are coming closer, and Bucky’s going to be pissed if he has to get his grate replaced tomorrow.

    He turns off the panini press, heads into his bedroom, and pulls his college baseball bat out of the closet, pausing only to pull on the slacks he’d just taken off. He’s going to go defend his shop, and he’s not going to do it in his underpants.

    Summary

    ‘I’m sorry, sir,’ he said, and Maria looked a little appeased, though now she was gesturing for him to get off stage. And then he smiled real big and wide and sincere and said, ‘Guess I’m just real fuckin’ tired of everyone treating me like an idiot. To answer your question, ain’t a lot I really miss. Polio was pretty fuckin’ awful, and so was the food, and the racism and homophobia and hatred so many folks had for one another for dumb-as-shit differences was so goddamn stupid -’

    Maria was suddenly on stage beside him, pulling his microphone away and grabbing his arm with a steel grip. Steve just leaned over to Nat’s mic with a shit-eating grin on his face and said, ‘Thank you so much for your time.’

    Steve's tired of the world treating him like he doesn't know a damn thing about the future. Bucky's tired of not knowing a damn thing about the past.

    They meet somewhere in the middle.

    Summary

    Series that begins with 'Steve Builds A House' and continues until my fingers stop working. Shooting for rough structure of 20k per work and 2k per chapter, and no joke I want AT LEAST four in this series and have vague plans for them to that point so please read and enjoy this mostly-fluff but also recovery collection.

    Summary

    Bucky flips to the next page, and the world around him grinds to a halt as his brain struggles to process what he's seeing. The noise of the train fades and static fills the inside of his head as he looks down at the sketches of the metal-armed guy without the mask. It's—that's him. It's Bucky's own goddamn face staring back at him from this stranger's sketchbook.

    "What the fuck."

     
    (Or, as I like to refer to it: two absolute disasters figure out how to use their words and touch mouth parts.)

    Summary

    After that he just looks at himself for a long time, taking in the rich blue of the dressing gown, the silk dark enough to cover him well but sheer enough to hint at what’s underneath. The shape of the kaftan fades the breadth of his shoulders, and the sash tied around his waist accentuates the narrowness of it; creates an illusion of Bucky being slenderer, smaller; tiny, delicate. With the new haircut and the faint flush high on his cheekbones, he looks almost unrecognizable: clearly more pretty than handsome; feminine, like one of those housewives in the 1950s media, waiting for her man to come home.
