Steve grins at him, bright and wide despite the split lip that must be stinging terribly. Buchanan—Bucky grins back, and it feels like something clicks into place. Something swell in the constricted chest of his temporary human body and quivers in his spine as warmth tingles through his limbs like the aftershocks of Grace.
Absolutely nothing good can come of this.
Or: Bucky is Steve’s literal Guardian Angel—at least, until Steve gets himself killed and Bucky makes him an angel to save him. But just because you’re in Heaven doesn’t mean war is over, and the price of turning his friend into an angel might turn out to be a little more than some lost Grace.
