    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.

    Written for the 2019 Cap RBB.

    Summary

    The premiere for Steve Rogers' newest Captain America movie was just around the corner, and Steve knew it was going to be a hit. The big downside was that he had to have a date. The last several times he'd brought someone to an event like this, things had ranged from unpleasant to disastrous. In a last ditch effort to get out of taking someone that might make his night hell, Steve went on Twitter and invited the Winter Soldier to be his plus one.

    The Soldier was an international fugitive, and currently wanted for a series of high profile attacks on corrupt businessmen. Since every person the Soldier attacked was involved in some truly vile criminal activity, the public loved him, despite his crimes. Inviting him to the premiere was the perfect cop out. There was no way he was ever going to show.

    Right?

    Summary

    Steve smiled a bit and then sighed. “So the serum makes everything inside more? Than why are you picking me? I’m an angry Brooklynite. I get in fights all the time. Sometimes I feel like the injustice of everything's gonna crash down on me like a pail of cement and I’m so angry I nearly can’t move.”

    Erskine looked at him again. “Perhaps that is precisely why, Steven. Perhaps that is precisely why.”

    Steve blinked at Erskine.

    “Nobody even won a war feeling nothing but internal peace and happiness for the situation,” Erskine pointed out as he stood up. “And again, a weak man who has no power knows the value of strength. You, Steven, have seen many people abuse their power and you stand up to it. That is why I picked you.”

     

    The thing about the serum was that it amplified what was inside. This meant only what was inside, of course. As Erskine said, there were already "...so many big men fighting this war, maybe what we need now is a little guy."

    Summary

    This wasn't Steve's plan for tonight.

    Part of the plan, maybe. The part where he goes to a club, anonymous and dark; that's been part of the plan from the start. The part where he finds some... company; also part of the plan. He's self-aware enough to know how pathetically lonely he's feeling right now. The rest of the plan had been...less detailed, more just a collection abstract ideas. None of which he'd imagined would lead him here, his palms sweaty as they fish handfuls of cash out of his pockets, one arm anchored around the waist of a man who is very enthusiastically nibbling on his earlobe.

     

    Or:

    Steve tries and fails to master the whole 'one-night stand' thing, lies snowball in a truly epic fashion, the supervillains of New York are all out of control, Tony is the worst best friend and mediator in the history of ever, and Bucky has the patience of a saint. Guest starring: Augustus the houseplant, projectile pineapples, and Target superhero costumes.
