Prompt: Steve & Bucky - What Steve's willing to do

I can't help but think that historians aren't exactly aware of how Captain America started his journey to becoming the world's first super hero.

In an ironic twist of fate, [Bucky's] prison camp was liberated by none other than his childhood friend, Steve Rogers, now Captain America.

Ironic?

It seems people aren't aware of the fact that Steve's first unsanctioned (suicide) rescue mission, was done with the sole intent of finding Bucky. That rescuing the other prisoners had been an unintended benefit. That he had released them because it was the right thing to do and it would have been cruel to leave them there (and because getting in was easy, but Bucky and him were going to need a distraction to get out), but Bucky was his focus.

It seems people aren't aware of exactly what Steve's willing to do for Bucky.



They talk about it later, the networks and the journalists and the various governments trying to decide what to do.

Prompt: It doesn't take Steve and Sam all that long to find Bucky. Mostly, because when they do find him, he's catatonic. Breathing and occasionally blinking, but nothing else. (Why, when, and where up to author.)

Steve...well, Steve doesn't handle this so well.

Bucky may not be able to be angry about what he's suffered at Hydra's hands, but Steve figures he's got enough anger for the both of them. So, he leaves Bucky in Bruce and Sam's capable hands and heads out.

This time, he takes no prisoners.

And after each mission, Steve makes sure to come back and resume his vigil at Bucky's bedside, and describes in great detail how many agents were still in the building when he collapsed it, who he killed personally because he saw their name in the Winter Soldier file, how many fewer people there are in the world who can ever hurt Bucky again.




“Cap, we could use your help,” Fury says.

“Please, come in,” Coulson requests.

“Hey, your boy smiled today,” Sam reports.

Steve speeds up the takedown and goes home to New York.

Prompt: Steve/Bucky, Bucky turning tricks for medicine money

During a routine Avengers get-together someone starts how did I lose my virginity? game. Bucky, whose memory is still spotty and largely bereft of context, volunteers it was in the early 1930s, to a guy called Jeremy. Because Sam instilled a therapy policy to let him talk, react to nothing, and ask innocuous follow-up questions, they learn it was January, in a back alley, and he got money for it, which he used to buy medicine.

Steve reacts poorly, but tries to hold it together.




Sometimes, Steve's team has "bonding rituals" and the weapon-trying-to-be-a-man joins in. This night, the "bonding ritual" involves alcohol and stories of first time sexual contact.
