Five times the Winter Soldier evaded capture.
In which there are tuxedoes, vodka martinis (shaken, not stirred), fakeout makeouts, massive property damage, a shark pit, and Steve has an Ursula Andress moment. But mostly, in true James Bond fashion, villains are seduced to the side of good.
The Winter Soldier died before he was recovered by SHIELD. In a world populated by gods and goddesses, Steve Rogers ventures into the Underworld to bring back his long-lost friend.
On the walk back towards the bar, he can see the radio tower, outside the city limits but still tall enough to give the feeling like it's looming over all of them. Out of the corner of his eye it looks like there are tentacles coiled around the tower, like shadows but once he looks straight at it, they're gone.
He can see Jessica in the bar when he gets back and knocks gently on the door. She opens the door with smile and flourish. "Welcome to the first day of the rest of your life."
"Are you needed today?" He asks, grazing his fingers over Bucky's shoulder, following scars and burns etched into his skin, marking the line between old and new. There is no obvious sign that his left arm is different, that it was torn from his body, except for the scar tissue. The physical sign of his contract with Persephone, her magic under his skin.
"No," Bucky murmurs. "Today I'm nothing but yours."
Steve smiles and and leans down to kiss his shoulder, covering Persephone's mark with his own. The flesh is dead and Bucky can't feel more then pressure, but he sighs softly. "I'll prove it's worthwhile."
The Winter Soldier is on the run and no one is more surprised than he is by the fact that he is accompanied by a little boy who seems convinced that he is his father:
“What’s that, Papa?”
Papa flinches and looks at Stefan. “It’s called a Kalashnikov,” he says, in a strange voice. “You’re not to touch it, okay?”
The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.
"Your friend seems to have gotten a little less shy."
"Stevie?" Bucky waved his hand dismissively. "Ain't shy. Just can't talk to women."
"Wonder why," she said, and there was irony there. Like she knew. Steve looked up and met her eyes, and went cold. Yeah. She knew.
Bucky says it's what friends do, they help each other out, and it's their little secret, right?
Going Down by cjmarlowe (Steve/OFC(s) )
Steve gets all the girls on tour. Or rather, all the girls on tour get Captain America.
Taste of Venom by bactaqueen (Steve/oc)
Cap can’t get the taste of venom out of his mouth. Rachel the Grocery Store Girl, some cheap booze, and some flavorful foods should help.
