    Summary

    “Barnes is stupid? Agree,” Sam snarked. He’d shoved his chair in so far that Bucky was squished in the corner now.

    He turned and narrowed his eyes. “Can you scoot over?”

    Without looking at him, Sam said, “No.” He took out his stupid protien drink. “What’re you dumb for, though?”

    “I can guess,” Clint sang. He looked like shit, having been checked brutally several times during last night’s game, with a bandage over his nose, split lip, and blackened eye. He tilted his head questioningly at Bucky, and Bucky was feelin’ a little self destructive, so he shrugged and gave a nod back.

    Plus, Sam had just taken a big sip of his drink, and Bucky wanted to see him sputter. 

    “He’s lamenting his big gay unrequited crush on Steve,” Clint told Sam.

    In a fortunate twist of fate, Sam actually did a spit-take, getting little brown chocolate drops all over the table and Clint’s face.

    OR: How Steve Rogers Stopped Worrying About His Image and Finally Scored

    Steve Rogers, captain of the Philadelphia Forge and the US Men’s Soccer National Team, keeps his head down and leads his teams quietly but effectively. Carol Danvers, captain of the Philadelphia Marvels and the US Women’s Soccer National Team, sports a pink-streaked fauxhawk, demands equal pay, and is anything but quiet. When Carol asks Steve to start a podcast with her to promote their teams and spread their love of the game, Steve thinks it’ll be a fun experiment and his agent thinks maybe he’ll start showing some personality.

    What Steve doesn’t expect is to meet a devastatingly hot producer. For his biggest secret to come to the surface. For this one offer to change his entire life.

    Summary

    The kid’s quick, not agile, or elegant, or runner quick, but quick like he knows the proclivities of his body really, really well. He’s yelling, skipping down the sidewalk to their left, and Natasha laughs under her breath.
    “You’re way out of your depth with this one, Barnes.” She mutters in Russian. Bucky scowls.
    “Shut up and aim for the heads.”

    Summary

    After Steve admits to Bucky that he loves him, things don't go smoothly. They fight. They both say things they regret. Steve walks away and Bucky goes to war.

    Steve still becomes Captain America, but rather than becoming a Howling Commando, Bucky decides to take the ticket home after being liberated from Azzano. Or at least he tries. Following a series of tragic events, Bucky still becomes the Winter Soldier. Steve still crashes the plane.

    After Bucky breaks away from the grip of Hydra, he gets an apartment back in Brooklyn. It doesn't take long for him to run into the old face of Steve Rogers. Can they become friends again, or is the memory of their last encounter too much?

    And who is this mysterious neighbor who seems to understand everything?

    A/N: This is the most difficult thing I've ever undertaken. I've done my best to handle situations with care, but characters do what they want sometimes.

    Completed June 2021, may be edited as I reread things
