    Summary

    They say life can change in an instant. One moment you think you know what your future holds, and the next, everything changes. One event that will forever alter the trajectory of your life.

    Twenty years ago, that happened to Steve.

    One moment he and Bucky were sitting side by side under the star-filled sky; together and inseparable as they had always been. The next, their village was attacked; Raiders appearing on dragons and razing buildings to the ground – all the while taking any child that crossed their path as they tried to flee.

    They took Bucky.

    Bucky fought like a dragon possessed to get free. Steve fought like a dragon possessed to free him. But neither were strong enough, and Steve lost his best friend to the evil in the night.

    Steve lost Bucky twenty years ago, and now trouble is stirring once again, threatening everything he holds dear. Things are happening that he is yet to see the end of, war draws ever closer to their borders - and the man with the metal arm that appeared is shrouded in mystery.

    No matter his curiosity, one thing is for certain; he failed those he cared about once before, and he's not about to make the same mistake again.

    Summary

    After three months of weekend bar-hopping and a slow process of elimination -- with finding the right bar, that was, and tragically not discovering who Bones was into -- Jim was starting to narrow it down. Bones was actively scowling less, which seemed like a good sign, but Jim still didn’t quite have it right, and lo, he was determined.

    Operation: Bones, Lighten Up was making staggeringly slow progress. But Jim liked Bones and his vocal method of observation, so that wasn’t necessarily a problem. They noticed the same things, Jim had noted, but had totally different reactions to them, and that struck Jim as very entertaining. Burdened both by less work and the according ethic than Bones, Jim regularly went out with others during the week (and usually came home with others, too), but he still found himself looking forward to weekend evenings most. Bones was by far his preferred bar-going companion. And in spite of Bones’ frequent biting remarks and utterances about regretting ever having met him, Jim suspected the feeling was mutual.
