    Summary

    James takes a bolt of white light to the chest. He goes down and doesn’t get back up.

    A few minutes later, Steve finds a teenage boy passed out in black armor two sizes too big for him.

    The world’s most notorious wetwork operative is now a sixteen-year-old from the 30s. James was living with Steve, so the boy—who goes by Bucky and looks at Steve with mingled awe and wariness—is determined to be Steve’s responsibility. Natasha looks sympathetic but not enough to save him from his fate. Tony and Strange are bickering over how much of it is magic and how much is science.

    Sam tries to console him.

    “It’s temporary,” he murmurs, fingers locked tight around Steve’s wrist. “It’ll be fine, Steve.”

    Steve believes him.

    That’s a mistake. The first of many.

    Summary

    Things Steve knows about his boyfriend Bucky: How he looks with his face relaxed in sleep. That he can perfectly flip pancakes. The way he’s open about things Steve is still adapting to, like therapy and depression and sex toys and being a millennial. The way he laughs with his mouth wide open and his eyes squinted, and the cheerful way he cheats at cards and loses at laser tag.

    The way he seduces Steve with a knowing glint in his eye. The way Steve responds to it, stronger each time, taken by his beauty and competence and snark and compassion (or the compassionate way he boots Steve in the ass when he needs a push).

    Things Steve doesn’t know about his boyfriend Bucky: That he’s an undercover operative gathering intel on Hydra, SHIELD, and which Steve is affiliated with.

    Summary

    There is a lion in the backyard. This is not, Bucky thinks to himself, the usual state of affairs. “It is,” Bucky says to the lion, “Too early. For this shit.” He steps back through the door and closes it. Pours his coffee back into the pot on the warmer. And goes back to bed.

    Summary

    "You say the Warhorse showed up last night," Sam said in tones of profound doubt.

    "Yeah," Steve replied.

    "The Warhorse. The Warhorse of legend. Daelland's Warhorse."

    "The same as the one on the back of the transit card, yes."

    "And he appeared in your living room?"

    Steve eyed the Warhorse, very large and very black and giving him a dubious look out of his strange grey eyes. "He's standing in it right now."

    "Uh huh," Sam said.

    "Hey, I'm not any happier about it than you are."

    * * *

    Steve's mom had left Daelland long before he was born, following her heart to New York, but she'd raised him on stories of its famous Warhorse. Before she died, he'd promised he'd go back and learn the country she'd come from.

    That was why he was in Daelland. Not so Daelland's legendary Warhorse could appear in his living room. But planned or not that's what had happened—now Steve had to figure out what to do about it.

    Summary

    “Half a millennium of existence,” Bucky murmurs, half to himself even as his gaze never strays from the wolf before him, “and this is what fate has in store for me.”

    Steve Rogers is kinder on the eyes than his predecessor, but all Bucky can look at is the gleaming star on his chest. It’s white, spread over nearly all of his right pectoral, the simple design standing raised on sun-kissed skin. Steve looks, acts, and smells like sun and forests, the polar opposite of Bucky.

    His star is red and on his left side, a mirror to Steve’s. There’s no denying it, their bond, but Bucky would gladly give a limb for that luxury. He's the master of his fate, not a few square centimeters of raised flesh.

    "I’m not exactly jumping for joy either,” Steve speaks, finally. “I’m more used to killing your kind than fucking them.”

    “Wolf,” Bucky says quietly, “you’re not fucking anyone here.”
