Though that was outside of the palace inside Alexa was such clumsy and curious child, though she loved hearing stories from her mother. Alexa had an elder brother named, Prince Alexander whom she admired greatly, she would always say her brother was one of the finest warriors from her kingdom. Alexander was brave, strong, determined. Alexa wanted to be just like him some day.
One day Alexa was is sitting in her bed very bored and irritated, she had everything any girl could dream of, but she still felt a little empty inside probably the lack of her father never being home.

Don't send me out for coffee - horrorDan gritted his teeth, struggling against the arctic winter winds that whistled through the gaps in the tall buildings in London. Phil had sent him out late in the evening to get more coffee, and as he’d given him puppy dog eyes, Dan could only oblige to his best friend’s wish. A sharp vibration in his left leg made him jump, before realising it was actually his phone.

“You’re wearing dark jeans, a grey shirt and a black jacket. Don’t even think about hanging up or we’ll shoot. We have men situated all around you, do as we say and you won’t get harmed.” The gruff voice filtered into Dan’s ears and made his heart momentarily stop. That definitely wasn’t Phil.

Bucky slides to the edge of the roof first, and allows Steve to help him down. Not that he really needs it, but if letting Steve feel needed makes him feel better, then so be it. He drops silently to the grass, coming smoothly to his feet and glancing up at Steve. Rolling his eyes when Steve does a forward flip off the roof, he knows when his friend is showing off.
"Was that necessary?" Bucky asks trying to hide the amusement in his voice.
"No, but I'm sick of being cooped up, too, y'know." He feels a moment of regret, wondering if that comment would somehow hurt Bucky's feelings. It doesn't appear to, and they re-enter the house in comfortable silence. Ignoring Tony's chiding to hurry up already, they make their way to the stairwell, and Bucky feels his body tense up.

The Third Night~Clint + Natasha~The Third Night2 years ago in Romance More Like This
This is the third night Clint has sat here. Up in the rafters, perched on thin pieces of steel and metal, built above the stage. This is the third night he's brought his bow and set it aside, because what's the point? He won't use it. Not now.
This is the third night he's lied to himself. The third night he's told himself, you're gaining intel, little chunks of information and evidence that will help SHIELD. The third night he's crumpled the piece of paper in his hand, sighed, and tossed it in the trash barrel. He'll be gaining no secret details tonight. Just more of that delicate, overpowering light, that soft, trembling music, and the push and flow of her body.
The first night he was truly intending to take her. He would take some part of her past, something he could use, if he didn't actually take her life. But then he got himself ready, positioned himself in his nest, tested the strings, selected an arrow, and the music turned on.

All friends are on vacation...Others are at work...Could this day get anymore lonelier? Then, My husband, Clint came in with some scratches and bruises on his body and face. I quickly got up and went to get the first aid kit.
"How did the mission went?" I said.
"Ah, god." He exclaims. "My back hurts. At least we kicked aliens' asses." I opened the kit and started cleaning the cuts on his face. The cuts wasn't crucial. After cleaning up Clint's cuts, I sat with him on the couch, watching Tv.
"This is so boring." I sighed. "This is probably the worst Saturday I've had. Today is too boring" I groaned as Clint puts his arm around me. He kissed my forehead.

There's a light bandage wrapping Bucky's stump, one that he can get wet and they can change once he's done cleaning up, but that will catch any blood or pus that leaks out. Steve helps him up the stairs, he's really off balance, almost comically so. Once he's up to the top of the stairs, Sam looks at him from the counter where he was sitting with Pepper. "Soups up," he says with a smile.
Nat is next to Bucky's stump, guarding it. There had been some fairly intense bruising and scraping at the end of it where Steve had crushed part of the arm. The guilt was extreme enough without anyone else seeing it or mentioning it.
Pepper watches him limp towards them, wondering what they did to his legs before realizing it's not a true limp. He's just holding one shoulder much higher than the other and it's throwing off his gait entirely. With his hair matted down with sweat and dark circles under his eyes, he looks truly awful.

Watching Bucky dry himself off, Steve absently does the same. It hurts him a little to know that his friend still cleans himself in the exact same order and manner as all those months before. And while he knows it shouldn't, knows that something that simple shouldn't bother him, it does. It's as if parts of him still aren't moving forward. Making decisions isn't something the Winter Soldier does, not like that. He has a task, and he completes it. If there's a pre-established routine, he follows it.
"Nothing," he says, slightly startled. He didn't realize his face wasn't blank.
"Can you not?" Bucky asks unhappily. "We are about to spend time locked in a room with Tony Stark, talking about Hydra and I do not..." he takes a breath and tries again to force the words out. "And I do not...do not want....I d

"Did you hit him?" Steve asks Natasha that next morning.
"Why?" she asks.
"Because he has a bruise, or had... had a bruise," Steve says, glancing back down at Bucky's sleeping face. He looks so soft when he's asleep, like the hand of god has gone over all the lines and pain and smoothed them away with the first rays of sunlight. "Might still have a bruise."
"And it would matter because?"
"Don't you think he's had enough violence for the past, what seventy years?"
"Probably." She doesn't look remotely apologetic.
"So what makes you think that it was okay to heap more on him?!" he demands. Glancing down when Bucky shifts, he knows it's too late. The other man is awake, as is Sam, who is staring at

When Steve comes to some time before the sun is up, he shifts closer to Bucky. Half expecting the other soldier to wake, or mumble in his sleep, reality comes crashing down on him when he remembers Bucky won't be waking up. Not for another day or two. He and Hallie hadn't talked the day before, he'd walked into the room, saw her monitoring Bucky and asked her to leave. It hadn't been anything personal, he'd just wanted to sleep. She'd agreed and left unconcerned. Now he wonders if perhaps he should have asked more questions. Or if he should have taken the time to talk about what he can remember of Bucky's symptoms. He's fairly sure the fever is a newer development. Reaching up to check Bucky's cheeks and then forehead, he feels normal enough. He's not sweating or shaking, and his face isn't flushed.
Unable to go back to sleep, Steve looks over at the books Tony and the others put together for Buck

Breakfast passes companionably enough. All of them find ways to cram themselves into the kitchen. Bucky, Steve, and Pepper have taken over the stools, Tony, Bruce, and Sam are all perched on the countertops. No one has any interest in talking, they're all so busy stuffing their faces. Tony jokes about the sheer amount of food Steve and Bucky put away. The moment he does, Bucky stops eating. It takes quite a large amount of verbal abuse thrown at Tony and encouragement directed at Bucky before he starts eating again. Everyone notices the way Bucky keeps glancing at Steve like he's waiting for something.
"Spill it," Tony says around a mouthful of bacon. "What're you hiding Rogers?"
"Nothing," he says with a frown, not sure if he's more concerned about where the question is coming from, or the fact Tony talks with his mouth full. He glances over at Bucky who l

"Hungry?" he asks, a sad smile on his face when Bucky shakes his head, rubbing hurriedly at his chin. Pulling the scarf off from around his neck he holds it out to Tony, briefly looking it over to make sure he didn't drip any apple juice onto it. "Thanks," Tony tells him, balling up the scarf.
"Thanks for the loan," he mumbles, shrugging out of Clint's jacket and putting it carefully over the back of a chair.
"We made some new friends today," Clint tells Tony casually, watching Bucky carefully bite into his apple. "Four assholes, Buck, you still got those IDs?"
"Hydra," he clarifies around a mouthful of food. Digging out the cards carefully he passes them to Tony who takes them and glances at them.

"Of course Mr. Wilson," the AI chirps, and the lights come back on in the room.
"My god, Steve, how long have you been in here?"
"I don't know," he croaks, voice hoarse from a combination of disuse and trying not to cry. "I was trying to see if maybe he'd been having nosebleeds before...oh god, I forgot to mention that to Hallie," he mumbles, looking haggard.

He reaches up to touch his nose, snuffling, not at all surprised to see blood covering the backs of his fingers. "Doesn't matter, Steve needs help," he tells her, using the other side of his hand to wipe more blood away.
"You're just smearing it," Clint tells him tightly, having caught up to them. His arm needs to be set and bound, and if they're taking Steve to an infirmary, well, Clint needs to be there too. As does Natasha. Her hair is a mess, standing up mostly on end in a rats' nest. The exposure to static from Thor's entrance has them all looking vaguely like they'd stuck forks into light sockets. Natasha looks the worst simply by virtue of having the longest hair.
"Bucky," Sam starts, concerned, before Bucky waves a hand at him in disgust. Not now. Steve is what matters.

Chuckling slightly, "You're a mess," he teases, smearing his fingers across the mess on Bucky's stomach and thighs. Seeing Bucky shudder pleasantly, "little sensitive there, huh?" he asks, kissing Bucky's lips. Unable to resist touching him a little more, he grins when Bucky squirms happily. "I know you just showered, but, c'mon let's get you cleaned up so you can rest." He can tell from how Bucky's looking at him, eyes half lidded that he's ready to sleep. "Probably kept you up too long anyway," he teases.
Standing up with Steve, he pulls the other man's shirt off, before giving him a playful hug, making sure to press his stomach against Steve's to share as much of the mess as possible.
"Aw, gross," he mutters, laughing a little. The laughter stops when Bucky's fumbling with his pants, looking up at him, lips wet and swollen from kisses.

(This story takes place after Loki's incarceration but before the events of the convergence.)
It was a warm and sunny morning in Asgard. The last bits of snow were melting off of the trees and some of the bulbs of the legendary beautiful flowers were peeking through the soil in the gardens of the palace. Birds were singing and the air was sweet. All would appear normal if not extraordinarily well off.
None of this however, was even sensed by the dungeons below the palace. It was dark, aside from the highly illuminated prisoner chambers that lined either side of the pit of Hel under royalty's feet.
Loki was napping, never asleep. Always resting like a cat, able to wake at the smallest minute vibration to his surrounding. But not this day...
The exiled prince was not well. His eyes opened slowly, practically burning his retinas from the intense light of the protective spells keeping him within his chamber. Q

About half an hour later Bucky reappears covered in splatters of blood. "Threat neutralized," he tells Steve stiffly.
"What? What threat Bucky? Did you find something? Are you okay? Oh my god is that blood yours?"
"I am uninjured. Ready to proceed."
"Okay, show me." Steve says hesitantly. Bucky's gone, there's nothing in that gaze anymore. None of the warmth and humor he'd been slowly regaining. Sees a slight lift of the chin in acknowledgement and a wave of the arm beckoning them forward, and he and Sam follow. His walk is no longer hesitant, he's not looking around, no longer concerned about the chance of an attack. Everything about Bucky is gone. Steve feels sick and helpless all over again.

They both leave, Steve reaching back to hold Bucky's hand and bring him forward, glances around before realizing he doesn't know where to go. Frustrated with himself, he glances around, knowing that his hesitation is going to cost him. Bucky starts to tense back up, and there's nothing Steve can do to stop him. "I just don't remember where the bedroom was, I'm sorry," he says. "After you sleep, if you still want, Pepper said she'd cut your hair," he offers. It's not strictly true, Pepper said after a bath, she would cut his hair. But he highly doubts that she'll really mind letting Bucky sleep first.
"No, cut it...cut it first," he says, face tight. "I...I want to look like Bucky."
And that's what does it. Steve can't stop the tears, so he turns his head away. But you are Bucky, he wants to tell him. He's not trying to refit the Winter Soldier into Bucky's image, he's trying to pull Bucky out of the soldier. And he's not sure how. It'll involve therapy, he knows that. But who

When he hears a soft knocking he comes too, hand slipping out of Bucky's as he startles awake. Although what cements full wakefulness is Bucky's arm splashing into the water and spraying him with cold water. "Just a minute!" he calls, seeing the other man start to slip under the surface as his heels seek traction they're never going to find. Catching Bucky under the arm before the water even raises over his collarbone he helps steady him while he stands up. It's almost impossible to get traction in a bathtub that has Epsom salts in it.

"Yes, there is. For one, you're treating him like a child. Nothing he's done suggests he has the mentality of a little boy, Steve.

"Is it going to hurt?" Bucky asks, looking at Steve helplessly.
"We don't know," Banner says quietly. Their introduction had been haltingly painful. The other man had refused to shake hands, and had slowly and continually retreated until he was by the window, and Bruce wasn't so sure he wasn't going to bolt. "I can do my best to make sure it doesn't, but you'll actually have to talk to us while we work, or we won't know." The poor man seems so scared. But Bruce can't say as he's surprised.
