    Summary

    He’d had a lot of near misses since the serum - had his throat cut once, taken three bullets and had to walk it off, spent a miserable few days in the infirmary following an attempted poisoning. But he’d never been shot with the blue light that plagued his nightmares before. People became confetti, skies became nebulae, men and worlds were torn apart, all in the wake of that blue light.

    And yet. He’d lived. A cosmic joke - he’d spent his whole childhood, his whole life, trying to live.

    And now he couldn’t die.

    Summary

    Therapy's a bitch, but PTSD is worse. An in-depth character study of Bucky Barnes as he reconciles his years with Hydra in the wake of Civil War.

    ------

    I don’t really know who I am. I do know that James Buchanan Barnes is dead. He’s a pile of bones at the bottom of a ravine. He’s a side bar in some other guy’s museum exhibit that might not even exist anymore. James Barnes would puke if he could see what he became. His parents and sister and friends would cry.

    I don’t know what’s left over now, but I know it’s not good. And I don’t think it can ever be good.

    Summary

    “Do you want to go somewhere more… private?”

    The blond man, after a long silence, had agreed. “My room is just up the block,” he said, jerking his head at the bar’s door.
