    Summary

    After the events of the fight between Steve and Tony (and subsequently the rest of the fucking Avengers, for reasons Bucky cannot comprehend other than it’s all his fault, as Tony would say), Bucky winds up in Wakanda to hide and heal, in order to regain some semblance of Bucky Barnes again. No more Winter Soldier, no more HYDRA, just Bucky. And some goats. But even though Bucky feels tranquil in his solitude, he’s not quite alone. He has his thoughts and the gradual faucet drip that is the restoration of his memories from a lifetime before becoming the Winter Soldier.

    OR, Bucky is depressed as fuck and knows he misses Steve, but needs to figure out WHY, and when he does, he isn’t really sure how to proceed. Until, of course, Golden Boy Steve Rogers facilitates a plan of his own to reunite the star-crossed lovers. What do 365 days of celebrating life, the world, love, and family look like for Bucky and Steve, and the rest of the crew? We'll see, one holiday at a time.

    Summary

    In Bucky’s heart, his true soulmate was Steve. The two of them clicked in a way that neither of them did with anybody else. To Bucky, soulmates didn’t always have to be lovers. They could be the one person that loved them through everything, that stayed by their side and understood them. That’s what Bucky knew Steve was to him. Of course they weren’t lovers, but their souls drew each other in, forming a bond much more meaningful than soulmarks could ever do.

    When Steve finally found his soulmate, how would Bucky react when he found out that it wasn't him?

    Summary

    Steve swallowed harshly, still curled up against the window. His stomach growled, but he simply ignored it, finding that watching two raindrops race down the window was far more interesting. The cold of the glass that seeped through the thin shirt kept him grounded. He deserved to feel cold. He deserved to feel hungry. He deserved this. Deserved pain. Deserved to be alone. He closed his eyes and rested his head against the glass as well, sighing softly. Oh, Bucky.. If only you knew.
    As Steve drifted off to sleep, only thoughts of a certain gentle, strong brunette with kind, storm grey eyes kept him from tearing at the seams.

    Steve and bucky have a fight. one that they might not bounce back from. did anyone order some pain??

    Summary

    Bucky thought the war was easier. He was made of war; down to the marrow of his bones — he and Steve both. Bourne and died of it. Peacetime didn’t stand to reason. Maybe it had, long ago — not anymore.

    He’d been only just stumbling into adulthood on gangly legs when he’d gotten that conscription notice. Playground to battleground, and he’d never made it home from the fight.

    Or; the prequel to All These Things That I’ve Done

    Summary

    "Okay, I don't know why I’ve never – you know!” Bucky said after a moment, a soft laugh spilling from his lips – something so genuine and bashful, that Steve wasn’t so sure what to make of. “You're just – you're the only one I've ever had eyes for. You're the only one I’ve ever wanted.”

    Or, whatever deity had constructed the fragmented pieces of their souls together, they were made of the same smithereens, and Steve was sure he had known that as a child, holding Bucky’s slightly larger hand and accepting that they were of the same love, without even knowing what such a concept was.

    Summary

    Steve sighs heavily. He knows the agents are only doing their job, and even though he doesn’t understand what he has to do with any of this, he decides that maybe there is no need to hide it anymore.

    It has been a long time since he’s said his name out loud.

    ’’His name...’’ Steve looks up at the agent, making sure that he’s listening because he never, ever wants to do any of this ever again. ’’Was James Buchanan Barnes. He’s dead.’’
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Sometimes the world has to turn into something worse before it can get better. While everything around them changes, Steve and Bucky try their best to stay the same.

    Summary

    I realized I was in love with you on the 2nd of October 1934. You told me you loved the universe, and that you had named stars after me. I was 16. James Buchanan Barnes, you are my truth and my greatest love, and the setting sun and the thought of home. In the end, it all comes down this, and I wanted to start with it. I owe you my heart and the depths of my mind, and if it all starts reading like poetry, it’s probably because it is. Because you are.

     

    Or Bucky's book, filled with his list of amends, is Steve's old notebook. On the last pages, there is a letter, and it's Steve's deepest truths.

    Summary

    They've been making time for years now, on and off, and Bucky is dizzy over Steve. But he's sure Steve is too honest to live a lie; soon enough, he'll find a girl smart enough to see his value. So Bucky keeps up appearances for them both. Still, every time he takes out a dame, it takes forever to get back into Steve’s good graces (and pants) again. It’s that damn contrary pride of his. Bucky loves him for it.

    They're on the outs on the day he walks in the front door early to find Steve with his face made up like a pinup girl, and his brain dribbles out his ears.

    Summary

    The bright sides of summer did mean that there wasn't any school, so Steve didn't have a lot of chances for colds--instead, it was asthma being triggered from the pollen to be worried about--and there was more time to hang out with his ma or Bucky.

    Everyone had their favorite season. Summer was Steve's.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers' love was like the gravity that could pull an empty tuna can to the deepest valley crags of the ocean -- the pressure eventually starts to buckle in from all sides, a second gravity from above, the weight of all that seawater. The further the can falls, the faster it descends as if to escape the pressure gathering atop it, and while a can in shallow waters might bop and dent its way to a final resting place, well, a can cast to fall through the weight of all those frigid lightless depths will hit its rock bottom like a gunshot.

    Summary

    They were little kids, so it wasn't anything special. It was a handshake, pretending to be dapper gentlemen, and it was a hug not caring about anything. Nobody said anything about it.

    They were teenagers, leaving delicate boyhood behind – just so. They didn't have to pretend anymore, they already were runty dapper gentlemen. Sometimes there were hushed voices, confused giggling.

    They were young adults and destruction fell upon them.
