For one thing, he doesn't have a Captain America signal.

The thing is, he's read most all of the books that have been written about Captain America. At first he was desperate to understand why people were so strange about him, why it felt like the whole world was staring at him, waiting for him to do something amazing. Before the Chitauri invasion, no one had told him that a generation of Americans had grown up watching Captain America cartoons on Saturday morning. No one had said that the stupid propaganda reels he shot with the USO and later with the Commandos would be dissected by scores of academics for cultural meaning, that every part of his life and death already had a book written about it. No one had told him what kind of symbol Captain America had become, because the answer was too complicated, and had changed every decade or so anyway.

Politics and Animals - Chapter 1 - Kryptaria, rayvanfox - Marvel Cinematic Universe [Archive of Our Own]
It all started on a quiet Brooklyn street. Sure, putting the Veterans Administration clinic next to a funeral parlor was probably the universe’s idea of a joke, but it had a coffee shop right across the street. And the old church next to the coffee shop had a new sign over the doors: Howling Commandos.

When Steve Rogers, the new Team Lead at the VA, first looked across the street and spotted the gorgeous guy with the cute dog, he never planned on becoming emotionally invested. It was just supposed to be a no-strings night of pleasure.

But Bucky Barnes turns out to be far more complicated than Steve ever expected, and at every turn, it seems like Bucky’s past, his family, and his stalker are all conspiring against them. Is it even worth the effort?

And in that moment, on that day, Steve was amazed to discover that when Bucky said “I’m with you ‘till the end of the line,” every time he called him punk and knocked him on the shoulder… what he meant was, “I love you.”

And it nearly scared Steve out of his damn shirt.

[Steve’s got his bag open and is extracting something blue and limp and soft-looking. A sweater. There’s white writing in plastic letters on it. He holds it up. It says, I am Steve Rogers. Clint beams, like he’s seeing his very own child. He nods at Bucky.

“C’mon,” he says.

Bucky opens the bag and draws out the sweater. It says, If found please return to Steve Rogers.

“You’re fucking kidding me,” Bucky says softly. “This is about seventy years too late.”]
He knows that Steve Rogers has disappeared. That he was summoned to a hearing and did not attend, and this has made the news. It did not escape Bucky’s notice that Steve Rogers is a match for him, even with the metal arm. It is not outside the realm of possibility that Rogers is going to try to recover the Asset.

your favorite ghost - augustbird - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
It's harder than Steve ever expected to bring Bucky home.

["Please don't leave," Steve says and hates the way his voice breaks. He steps forward, into Bucky's space. Bucky doesn't move away but he doesn't look at Steve either. Steve moves slowly as he brings his arm around Bucky, pulling him into a hug. Bucky tenses, like he's five seconds from tearing away and running out the door.

But then he relaxes. Slowly. And he lifts his arms and awkwardly puts them around Steve like he's learning how to hug for the first time.]

"We’re alive in defiance of the law, now,” Natasha said bitterly.

“Well,” Steve said, and pushed his plate away. “We’ll just have to break in and get them.”

“Right, let’s take it from the top,” Natasha said wearily. “The Raft is a fully submersible supermax prison—“

“We can do it,” Steve said.

Bucky is still adjusting to life with the Avengers, and Steve is willing to do whatever it takes to make him feel comfortable. Increasingly, though, what seems to make him comfortable is strangely intimate.

Surprise, Steve! You're a gentle dom and Bucky wants to be your pretty pet!

warm blood (feels good, i can't control it anymore) - notcaycepollard - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Sam's just chilling watching TV one evening when Bucky comes in and stares at him silently for a minute or two before sitting down on the couch. He's pretty close to Sam.

Okay, he's really close to Sam. Like, Sam would be using the word 'cuddling' if it wasn't so bizarre.

"What," he says, carefully not looking at Bucky, and Bucky huffs a sigh.

"Steve's not here," he says as if it's obvious. "Don't make it weird. Just- shut up."

The Asset has to admit, ending a mission with Captain America crying into his lap is pretty unexpected. Even for him, and he is trained to anticipate all contingencies.

The Asset runs into his ex-mission halfway across the world. Surprisingly, very little fighting ensues.

Ain't No Grave (Can Keep My Body Down) - Chapter 1 - spitandvinegar - Captain America - All Media Types [Archive of Our Own]
It's six in the morning, and Steve is heading out on a run when he nearly trips over a bouquet of sunflowers on the front steps of his brownstone.

For a second paranoia takes over, and he kicks the flowers a little, waiting for them to explode. They don't. They also came with a card, which he picks up. The front of the card has a tasteful picture of the Brooklyn bridge at sunset. It's very nice and sedate, like the kind of card you would buy to give to your boss. On the inside someone has written a short message in big, shaky block letters.


Steve sits down hard on the steps.

Even the strongest personalities, when subjected to great physical, emotional, and sexual abuses, can splinter, or dissociate.

Bucky Barnes lives a nightmare after falling from a train and being recovered by Hydra. His mind deals with the trauma by splintering into the soldier, the prisoner, the patriot, and the assassin.

Years later, they team up to save Steve Rogers.

When the helicarriers blow up and the Winter Soldier goes on the run, he takes Steve with him. He's got a name written in Morse code on the inside of his arm, a ton of questions he doesn't know how to ask, and now, a new handler with absolutely zero sense of self-preservation to contend with. Life is hard.

In which Bucky tries to figure out whether he's a human being, Steve does everything he can to keep from losing him again, and there are lots of explosions.

Into That Good Night - Chapter 1 - Nonymos - The Avengers (Marvel Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
Steve Rogers has lived for entirely too long—long enough to see the world's end. The heroes are gone, and the Earth is pushing what's left of mankind towards the exit.

But when a makeshift team rises from the ashes, when a mysterious presence all but drags Steve there, he begins to think there may be hope yet. As they shoot for the stars one last time, Steve will get proof yet again that the future is nothing if not an echo of the past.

to memory now I can't recall - Chapter 1 - Etharei - Captain America (Movies) [Archive of Our Own]
While on a mission storming a HYDRA facility, James Buchanan Barnes touches one of the many strange alien devices collected by the Red Skull. He does this, in fact, twice— in the past, and in the future.

Next thing he knows, Bucky Barnes is opening his eyes in the 21st century, which is full of great gadgets and coffee, and at least includes his old pal Steve. (And, inexplicably, a different Stark.) Meanwhile, the Winter Soldier finds himself in the middle of World War Two, helping Captain America hunt down HYDRA (which is at least familiar), pretending to be Bucky Barnes (which is not), and figuring out the very noisy group of soldiers who call themselves the Howling Commandos.

Based on art by Puckboum for the Captain America Reverse Big Bang. The prompt: "Post-apocalyptic AU. The idea I had while drawing was that the end of the world happens some time after WS or CW, Steve and Bucky are looking for Tony so he can make a new arm for Bucky, and Natasha, Clint and Sam are looking for them so they can stop Hydra from taking control of what's left of society. That or quiet slice of life, except in a post-apo world."

She managed to get the clip pulled from the news. It took a lot of phone calls and more voice-raising than she ever liked to do, but she couldn't imagine how James must be feeling. Every time she saw it, she felt sick -- there was this expression of surprise on Steve's face when the bullet hit, clear enough even through the grainy, far-away footage.

AU to the DITAB universe.

For a while, it seems like everything is... well, normal's not the word, but Steve's as right as anyone would've expected after being that seriously injured. He hurts. Physio takes time. Everything feels hard. It makes sense that it would. He was stabbed twice and shot three times, and Sam says he'd have drowned if he hadn't been pulled out of the river by--
[summary from part 3]

Sam doesn't actually say who. He doesn't need to. The guards by the door had said enough. If B--
If he had remembered enough to pull Steve out of the river, then he probably--
He probably remembers--

Steve's hand slips suddenly off the counter.

One of the things Steve learns firsthand: grief is never as straightforward or as linear as five simple steps, even when it doesn't take you 75 years to work through it.
