    Summary

    Being a server at a high-end restaurant is working out well for Steve. All he has to do now is convince Bucky he's good enough to work as chef in the same restaurant. Steve's determined to prove to his best friend that all Bucky's talent and passion for food is worth something.

    He's going to make it happen, even if he has to omit a few solid truths to get it done.

    Meanwhile, Bucky has his own issues to deal with. Namely: trying his damndest to dig them out of poverty, make sure Steve's health is on the up and up, and not acknowledging his very longstanding desire for his best friend that is slowly eating him up inside.

    A story about food, compassion and stubborn idiots in love.

    Summary

    In April of 2014, two very important things happen: The Winter Soldier is prepped for a mission as part of Project Insight which never ends up happening, and Steve Rogers finds out his mother is dying.

    In October of 2018, Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers meet in the Sculpture Garden at UCLA. Bucky has spent the ensuing years building a life for himself, learning that he likes to study in the sunshine and build friendships with people who just think of him as ‘that nice guy who’s really smart’, not what he used to be. Steve has tried to make it in Brooklyn, but everything reminds him of Sarah. He needs a change of scenery, and following his childhood best friend Sam Wilson over to California seems to be the way to do it.

    Summary

    When Bucky Barnes moves into his Brooklyn apartment, he does three things: puts his chair on the fire escape, buys a cactus, and avoids talking to the neighbors.

    But he can't seem to avoid Steve Rogers from next door and his adorable three-year-old daughter, Sarah—and as Bucky gets to know them, and begins to let them know him, too, he starts to think that he might not want to.

    They've all been alone for so long. Maybe they don't have to be anymore.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes gets rid of both his boyfriend and his well-paid lawyer job in the span of a week -- and also wins an inn in a raffle he entered while drunk. He decides to simply roll with the bizarre situation, and leaves New York to visit the small town of Pine Rock, Massachusetts, figuring that maybe he can fix-and-flip the old house and get some space from the shitshow that his life has become.

    It's not his fault if he ends up charmed by both the town and the house. And it's definitely not his fault if he falls head over heels for the lovely, plaid-wearing carpenter who's helping him out.
