Prompt: AU in which you can force people to do your will if you know their true name.
Summary: Bucky has given Steve his life, his friendship, his love, his hatred, his body—everything but his name. And yet Steve is still hungry. It’s a slow poison. This urge to give more and more when he asks, and Steve never stops asking. He can feel it crawl through his veins as he’s slowly sucked him dry. Steve never realized just how much of a hold he has on Bucky even without a name.
Steve Rogers can bend anyone to his will, so long as he knows their true name. But not Bucky. He won’t ever let Steve have his name, even if it kills him.
