[mcu] Parallel Constructions, by freshbakedlady (Steve/Bucky)
(13,700 words) In the absence of orders, the man wearing the face of Bucky Barnes must figure out who he will be. The answer, mostly, is "somebody Steve Rogers can love." Nothing so easy should ever take this much work.
Steve huffs an ugly, unhappy laugh. “Come on. Since when you do wanna talk about feelings?” He shifts in Bucky’s grip, pulling away. “Not like you to go sappy on me.”

Bucky recoils, retreats to his side of the bed. The words were said casually, but they buzz around his head with stinging force. He knows he's getting details wrong. He can't remember everything and even what he does sometimes sits wrong in his skin. He's trying though. He's trying so hard to be the man Steve loved and lost and he can't deal with knowing he's getting it wrong. He can't deal with being an imitation Bucky Barnes.

[ I'm SO ANGRY that this somehow got lost on my kindle and I never recced it because it is one of the best, BEST things this fandom has produced. ]

Summary:
Sam went from working at the VA to teaming up with Captain America to assisting on a crew of superheroes. Magic shouldn't be a big step from that, but defending Central Park earns him an unexpected favor, and Sam isn't sure he wants to accept.

He dismisses the comic books from the fifties and the propaganda films. He makes an involuntary grimace of disgust at the disparity between the man on the bridge and the primary-colored fool they try to pass off as the same man. He finds more pictures, though, photographs from the war years, passed from friends to family to archivists to fans. There are the USO days, before Rogers and Barnes were reunited, and there are the missions run after Barnes fell. Rogers before looks young and shy and embarrassed. Rogers after looks bereaved and hard and determined.

In between, Rogers looks in love. He studies the way Rogers leans against Barnes, the way his eyes linger on him, the way his slightly greater height lets him curl protectively around Barnes. None of the official documents say anything to support it. One of the interviews with Peggy implies she and Rogers had something going on, but she’s quite emphatic that Rogers brought her and her future husband together. The official stories seem to let that lie as well. Rogers, they imply, loved America and Truth and Justice and no one else.

Unofficially, he is not the only one to think the photographs tell another story. Rogers is not the only one with adoration in his eyes and hands that cling too hard and too long for propriety. He goes back to the exhibit, looks again. He thinks, maybe, he can see a little space, a lacuna where the official story doesn't quite meet the truth on the screen. He thinks, in that space, he can maybe see room for himself to be James Buchanan Barnes. Because Barnes loved Rogers and went to his death to prove it.

Now, Barnes will come back to life for him.

[It takes a lot of time to digest properly, at least for me. It was excellent and so, so deliberate. Four-five.]
