    Summary

    "Do you want me to eat you?"

    “No, but—” Steve broke off his instinctive response. All his life, he’d believed in doing what was right… he was not about to stop now. Wincing at the prickling pain in his feet, he straightened up to his full height. “Yes. If it means you’ll leave this place.”

    "But you don’t look very filling." The tip of the dragon’s tail twitched. "I don’t suppose you’re a virgin?" he asked hopefully. "I’ve heard they taste better."

    Steve gritted his teeth and refused to answer. The dragon could very well find that out for himself. He stared at the dragon. The dragon stared back. Then the dragon got up, turned around, and went back into his cave.

    "Well? Come on, tribute."

     

    or, how Steve ends up working for a dragon with a very odd sense of humor

    Summary

    “What do you want to do?”

    Steve pauses and looks at them.

    What he wants is to stay with them. He doesn't have any family left, they all died before he even joined the war and became... this. Captain America turned whatever he is now. But Natasha and Sam have become his family over the years. Not just because they're on the run together, fugitives and vigilantes, but way before that too.

    He doesn't want to leave that.

    But he knows that, realistically, he can't stay with them and they can't stay with him.

    So he looks at them with a smile and lies. “I don't know.”

    OR; In which Steve retires and finally finds a place to call home.

    Summary

    The man lifts his head which means the cap brim is no longer hiding his face and the friendly smile that was growing on Steve’s lips suddenly freezes, as do his legs mid-step when his eyes lock with the man’s startling blue ones.

    He knows those eyes. Hell, he knows that face.

    “Bucky?”

    OR Steve’s friendship with his childhood best friend ended suddenly after one night of mistakes and misunderstandings and he has spend the last eighteen years trying to forget about it and move on. But when he runs into him again, after so much time and so much life lived, everything gets brought back to the surface. Including feelings he never wanted to acknowledge.

    Summary

    Bucky flips to the next page, and the world around him grinds to a halt as his brain struggles to process what he's seeing. The noise of the train fades and static fills the inside of his head as he looks down at the sketches of the metal-armed guy without the mask. It's—that's him. It's Bucky's own goddamn face staring back at him from this stranger's sketchbook.

    "What the fuck."

     
    (Or, as I like to refer to it: two absolute disasters figure out how to use their words and touch mouth parts.)

    Summary

    Bucky stares at his best friend as though he’s absolutely lost what’s left of his dumbass mind.

    “Excuse me?” he asks dumbly.

    Steve sighs and sags back onto the couch, covering his face dramatically with one large, well-manicured hand.

    “Dean Coulson thinks we’re dating. And gay. But like, for each other. And now I need you to fake date me so I can convince the Chancellor to fund my research.”

    or;

    Steve and Bucky are a pair of professors who have to fake date for academic purposes and are real dumb along the way. It's not so much a forest of pine as a whole landscape of it. It turns out fine, probably.
