    Summary

    Steve’s been stuck in Los Angeles for work since August while Bucky’s been working from home in Brookly since the pandemic started in March. They Skype almost every day, but Bucky is feeling the effects of quarantine and is starting to get frustrated that Steve’s made no mention of coming home for the holidays. Is it too much to ask that his boyfriend spends their first real holiday together at their apartment in Brooklyn?

    After hanging up on Steve for not seeing the issue, Bucky is determined to spend his Christmas as a couch burrito watching Christmas movies and eating all the snacks he can get his hands on. Steve might just have other ideas.

    Summary

    The Winter Soldier and Bucky Barnes are two different people sharing one body.... and one boyfriend.

    Tony loves both suave, charming Bucky and also broody, dangerous Winter and both men love him too. But the shared relationship is blurring their personalities until it's hard to stay separate. They switch without realizing, causing memory loss and confusion, anger and even a little jealousy when private moments with Tony are interrupted when the other comes forward.

    If Bucky and Winter blur too far together, one will be lost forever, his mind and consciousness erased so the other can exist alone, and Tony is terrified of losing either of the men he loves.

    Winter's willing to go since he was created from torture and used as a weapon for decades. Bucky's willing to go because he's tired of seeing a weaponized super soldier in the mirror when really he's just a kid from Brooklyn.

    They have to separate before it's too late, but even with Dr. Cho's help, it's a risky experiment almost certainly doomed to fail.

    How can Tony possibly decide which of his boyfriends he'd be willing to lose forever?

    Summary

    Welcome to Whump-Tober, where we needlessly cause our favorite characters to hurt/be sad!
    Each day had a different prompt, the prompts will be the chapter title. They also help serve as warnings. All tags will be in the main tag section of the fic, all relevant tags to the specific chapter will be in the notes of that chapter.
    Each chapter is a stand alone one shot.
    Be aware! These are going to be heavy angst! Please read all the tags (at least the ones in the chapter), and take care of yourself! It's going to be rough.

    Summary

    It was dark, the only sound being their shallow breathing. Steve shifted, just barely, staring at the wall. "Do you ever want to die?" He murmured, fingers tapping softly against the matress.

    He hadn't expected a response, hadn't expected his partner to be awake. But there was a reply, allbiet after a long, pregnant pause. "Yeah. Sometimes."

     

    (Or, in a world where Bucky really did die when he fell from that train, Steve Rogers misses his boyfriend.)

    Summary

    “Buck…Bucky. You knew I wasn’t coming back. I couldn’t keep going the way I was. I needed her, needed the Howlies. I thought you understood….” Steve grips his wrist with an age spotted hand. “I never wanted to hurt you. I would never do that on purpose. Come on, you know me.”
    Bucky jerks his arm away, stepping back. He’s breathing too harshly and he’s about to say things that are going to hurt both of them but maybe it’s exactly what Steve deserves to hear. “You know what, Steve? No, I don’t know you. I don’t know a thing about you. You’re just some guy I used to be friends with but for you it was eighty years ago and for me it was a few days."

    Bucky Barnes has a broken heart in 2023. There's nothing to do but pick up the pieces and try to figure out how to live.

    But in another timeline freshly defrosted Steve Rogers only knows is that Bucky is out there somewhere, alive.

    Everybody deserves a chance to heal

    Summary

    James "Bucky" Buchanan Barnes is America's protector, a national hero, the one and only Captain America. He's been dealing pretty well with the modern world since he woke up.

    Enter Steve Rogers. He's small and cold and absolutely professional. However, the seemingly frail nurse gives Bucky a surprise when he's suddenly caught up in an attack and makes his way through it like this was all part of a normal work day. Suddenly, Bucky becomes a lot more interested in the other and realizes that he can't just adapt if he wants to thrive.

    (Please take note of the tags! Mentioned suicide attempt and a lot of dark themes are mentioned. Keep yourself safe.)

    Summary

    Just 'cause Clint said it was okay, that they could be dumb together, it doesn't mean he actually means it, reasons Bucky. Just 'cause Clint's climbing into bed with him, still giving him space, doesn't mean he'll be there in the morning.

    Clint wasn’t supposed to know; at least, not this early. Bucky tries to save his issues for at least the third date, but they’ve jumped the gun here, with the blood and bed sharing and now this. Whatever this is going to be.

    a continuation of "my head my heart"

    You bring the smokes, I’ve got the time. — Goodbye, Cage the Elephant

    Here’s the thing. Sam knew that Bucky had his issues— he’s always had his issues. But he seemed to always have it under control.

    Yet in the past few weeks Sam’s seen Bucky slipping: lost in his head, failing to listen and understand people, and drinking. A lot more than usual.

    Or: Bucky has an episode and Sam needs to talk him down from the roof of their apartment in New York City.
