    The next item is dark blue fabric, and as soon as his hand touches it, he stills. It’s soft.

    He pulls his hand back and then, tentative, reaches back to touch it again. It’s fluffy. As he strokes it, an ache uncurls in his chest. His fingers are trembling. Can this be for him? Can he have this?

    He picks it up. It’s a jacket, the hood thick and warm. He slides it on and at the first contact of the fabric his chest clenches around a wordless swell of grief and gratitude. He feels his lips quiver, but he can’t stop. The scarf is even gentler and he closes his eyes as it touches his cheek. Every part of him is trembling now.

    He stands there, shaking, soft things on his skin and a storm in his heart.

    He remembers a … covering, over his face. A hard black mask. It hurt, sometimes, but he was used to it. This is different. He pulls the scarf around his head, closes his eyes and turns his face into the gentleness. He pulls it up over his eyes and nose. His eyes are wet.

    He stands there for a long time. He’s in the dark, but his body feels warmed from outside in. Nothing is touching him with cruelty.

    Summary

    The first two years after Bucky gets out of the ice are-- surprisingly easy. Serve his country, learn to use his charmed robot hand, make friends, don’t think about the spark of magic in him that’s gone out, see the world, try to live with the grief (try to live with the grief, try to--)

    Maybe they’re not that easy, in the end, but he’s settling - until he gets reluctantly pulled out of the Army and has Steve’s shield (Steve’s shield, its magic wary and curious and half-dormant) thrust onto him again, even though he’s already turned it down once before. The world has changed and so has he, but as he tries to immerse himself into a new life, he meets a ghost he could never leave behind.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He dreamt about this, he realizes as he slowly approaches Bucky, back when he was lying in the snow and waiting for death. He dreamt of a miracle happening and someone finding him, and - after recovering and paying his debt, maybe years later - going home. Maybe by then Bucky would already be married, having kept on living; but perhaps--

    Perhaps he was still waiting. Perhaps he would be chopping vegetables in their old apartment, his back to the door, and Steve would sneak in, pull him into his arms from behind. Bucky might sock him in the jaw, or drop the knife and lean back into him; Steve didn't know which version of the fantasy he liked more.

    ***

    It takes two and a half months, but one July evening, when Bucky’s slicing shallots in the kitchen, going slow because his joints are aching with the stormy weather, the silence in his apartment grows suddenly heavy. [...]

    Steve steps closer, his chest pressed to Bucky’s back, his breath warm against Bucky’s ear, and Bucky lets himself tip back into the embrace, closing his eyes.

    “Sweetheart,” Steve murmurs into his hair, soft and low, one arm circling Bucky’s waist, his other hand coming to cup Bucky’s own, and Bucky lets go of the knife, and drops it,

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Bucky makes a noise, and Steve hears the signal, and they move, fast, breaking through the ranks of agents. It turns out that changing the face of a city is easier than changing the bones of it. Steve and Bucky may be boys from Brooklyn at the very heart of them, but they know enough about Manhattan to know how to disappear.

    It takes them three minutes to lose the agents in the throng of tourists and commuters, workers and crowds. Bucky turns and looks at Steve, something halfway between terror and excitement in his face as he grabs his wrist and says, “Don’t lose me, don’t lose me.”

    Summary

    “I watched a documentary on the bombs dropped on Nagasaki and Hiroshima a while ago. In the blast radius, sometimes a… a person blocked the bleaching effect of the radiation. So the person was vaporized, but a shadow was left behind, on a bridge or a wall – their shape, their outline, when they were completely gone," Steve said. "It’s called a nuclear shadow.”

    “If you’re implying the Soldier is like a nuclear shadow, then that is seriously fucking dark, man,” Sam said dryly.

    OR

    Before the fall of the Soviet Union, the Winter Soldier was sent to the American arm of Hydra - only there was a malfunction in the cryo-unit that meant it couldn't be opened, and it was left, powered but abandoned, in an underground base.

    25 years later, the Avengers find it.

    “Can we play the fact game?” the Soldier asks as they bounce and jolt to the Triskelion in the back of an armoured truck. He speaks softly, under the chatter of the STRIKE team, and puts his trust in the Captain’s enhanced hearing.

    “Can’t,” says the Captain. “We’re almost there.”

    “But I want to tell you something.”

    The Captain glances up, intent. The Soldier looks into the expressive eyes, simultaneously the eyes of a stranger and the very pulse of his heart, and finds himself at a loss for words. It could be the last time they ever see each other. His mouth opens, and shuts again.

    “It’s all right,” says the Captain. Not once has he moved his gaze away. “I know it already.”

    “You know? You’re sure?”

    “Yeah,” says Steve, gentle as a feather. “Always have been.”

    The paper is a soft, creamy white, the string bright red.

    He's only written one word.

    He has only one wish, after all. The simplest to ask, but the most complicated to get. For a few minutes he stays there, watching the paper stick out between the others, a white slash between a red and a green.

    Please, he thinks.

    Summary

    Arthur wakes up and realizes the last ten years of his life have been a dream. He is nineteen, and he can barely remember where he is. What he can remember is the ghost of Eames’ hands pressed down on his chest trying frantically to stop the blood flooding up around his fingers as Arthur died (as he woke up).

    Eames fell silent, looking up at Arthur with a shuttered expression that could have been hiding any emotion. “Arthur,” Eames murmured. “What were you trying to say to me, when they killed you? That’s what I dream about, you know. Those red words bleeding from your mouth.”

    Arthur experienced the curious sensation of having his heart broken and remade at the same time.

    “I was trying to tell you that I was so sorry I said it like that, but that I meant it,” Arthur whispered. “Not everything, of course. Just the ‘I love you’ part.”

    “Oh,” Eames replied, hushed and soft where he spoke against Arthur’s hair. His voice rumbled in his chest shaking through Arthur like warmth. “Okay.”

    Summary

    The battle quieted for the moment, the great metal giant turns, at last, and sees Steve. Dark, almost human hair frames a sharp, steel face - but, Steve is caught by its eyes. They’re bright silver, sparking in the sunlight, shot through with gray and blue, visible even at this distance. Something about them nags at Steve, calls to him, reminds him of…

    Instead of making the Winter Soldier, Hydra transfers Bucky's consciousness to a metal body, locking his mind within a prison of steel and programming. However, Bucky is stronger than they could've ever imagined.

    Bucky cracks open his eyes, silver glinting in the growing sunlight. “Steve?” he says and how had Steve not known it was him every time he said his name? No one says his name like that but Bucky.

    Summary

    So long ago the details were lost to time, people began creating guardians of the dead. They were made from dogs, dogs who were buried in graveyards before anyone was laid to rest, their spirits arising as black dogs, bound protectors of the human dead.

    Steve had always wondered what would happen after he died. He hadn't expected the answer to be 'wake up in the cemetery he'd been buried in', but here he was, some kind of ghost, and he could see the trees through his hands. It wasn't so bad, and he wasn't alone—a sleek black dog, golden eyes glowing bright, was happily waiting to greet him.

    Decades later, on what was supposed to be a quiet, peaceful, definitely-not-life-changing walk through the woods, Bucky stumbled across an abandoned cemetery and into the impossible.

    (It's a ghost story and a love story and a story about dogs.)

    "No. It's like," there was a pause, then Steve continued, thoughtful and sad, "imagine you see a faraway light one night, but no matter how loud you call, the person holding it can't hear you. She's holding the light. Up there," Steve pointed straight up, "too far away to hear us. We know she's there, and maybe she knows we're here, but we can't reach each other. She must be incredibly lonely."

    There was a long silence, the minutes ticking past, and then Bucky said, in a voice of horrified wonder, "Are you talking about Laika?"

    "Are you okay?"

    Bucky's head snapped up. He whirled on Steve. "What?" he shouted. "What, Steve? What the fuck do you want from me?"

    Steve stared at him, his eyes huge. He rubbed his leg. "What are you talking about?"

    "My words! My fucking words, Steve!" He didn't think about how Steve would be able to see the terrible scars on the remains of his arm before he'd lost the barrier of clothing, but by the time he did it was too late and he was still too angry to care. He slapped his chest, and the words emblazoned there in that stupidly precise handwriting. "You're not my soulmate! Stop saying my fucking words!"

    "Then you stop saying mine!" Steve hollered right back. "Fucking asshole!"

    "Do you not think you'll take good care of it?" He asked. Shinkai didn't sound accusatory. He sounded genuinely curious and that pissed Arakita off even more.

    "No." Arakita snapped. "I would take amazing care of it. But that's not the point! It's not even my job. You just gave it to me and ran off! You didn't even ask if I wanted it! Who even keeps their hearts out of their bodies these days anyway? Take care of your own shit!"

    He’s rummaging through Arthur’s desk trying to find a working pen when he sees it. It isn’t particularly hidden, but tucked neatly on the side and away from the clutter, like it used to be constantly touched or handled.
    Eames gingerly picks it up, holds it aloft, and the flood of memories comes unbidden, one after another.

    If there was ever a time that Eames ever felt like his heart was being ripped from his chest, it was nothing compared to what he feels now. Eames curls into himself, clutching his old dog tags tightly around his fist and feeling the thin steel dig into his palm until it begins to bend. “Oh Arthur,” Eames whispers, voice cracking with emotion. “Oh love, you should have said something.”

    A million questions speed through Eames’s mind as he counts back the years he’s spent with Arthur. How long had he been holding on to this? Where did he find them? Why hadn’t Arthur said anything? Why hadn’t he?
    But the one thought that pierces like a dagger twisting in his heart is: Since when?

    “Captain William Laurence, Sir, of – Temeraire. I command a number of privateers. We have come to aid England.”

    “Very good,” says the man absently. He glances again at his paper and marks something down. “How many among your complement, then?”

    “Eighteen ships and thirteen dragons, Sir; but only three frigates among them. I can give the specifications to your aide, but they all have some number of guns.”
