by irnan"Did you guys - I mean, in the war?"
He laughed. "No. Never."
Natasha was fascinated. "How come?"
"You know," he said thoughtfully. "I look back on it, and I don't know? I mean, I love Peggy. I probably always will." He smiled, face tight with well-worn pain. "But I - you know those trick pictures where you focus your eyes different and suddenly you can't unsee...? It was like that." He snapped his fingers, a sharp crack. "I was done. And looking back... I still can't unsee. Not really."
Natasha tapped her book against her chin, smiling. "That's - that's kind of nice. Like - having everything fall into place and... and finally make sense."
"Not quite everything," said Steve. He was watching her and smiling like he knew the secrets of the universe. "But almost."

Bucky meets Harley. Aw boys.Out of the Dead Land
by emilyenrose"I was so scared," Steve said.
Bucky tucked his head down and thought about this. "Yeah. So was I."
"That's it?" said Stark, who had come into the room at some point and Bucky, bizarrely, had no idea when. "Give him a hug and you're all good? Wait, does this mean there was a hug test available all along, because if so, I can't believe there was a hug test available and instead we all got stabbed."
Bucky lifted his head and stared at him flatly over Steve's shoulder. "Are you asking for a hug, pal?"
Stark took a step back. "No, no, I'm good."

by traveller"Listen, Tash. I'm not having a good time if you're not having a good time, okay?"
She snaps her bra into place and looks at him, her head tilted curiously. "What are you talking about?"
Sam shakes his head. "Tell me one thing you like. Just one thing. Right now while you're standing there and I don't have my hands on you and you can't distract me."
Natasha pulls her hair out of the collar of her shirt, and smiles slow and dirty. "Oh, I could distract you from over here."
"That's it, that shit right there," Sam says, exasperated. "That's what makes me wonder if I'm even fucking you when I'm fucking you."
He knows he's fucked up as soon as the words are out his mouth.
Sam and Natasha, negotiating their relationship. Hot and sweet and a little sad.
