The Fallacy of Fate (Part 2/?) (Rogers/Barnes x reader)
After your formal meeting in the hospital that day, things had a difficult time gaining any traction between the two of you, as Steve struggled to find his place after the fall of SHIELD, ultimately landing at the brand-new Avengers tower to take up Tony’s offer. The lovesick puppy wouldn’t take the offer without you, of course, his attraction and attachment to you quickly taking hold. The rest of the team had moved in too, giving you at least a few others who understood how intense Steve’s moods could be, and who understood that when the man had his sights on a goal, he didn’t back down easily. Even after going out on one date, and even though you had a really great time together, you couldn’t help but have your apprehensions; it felt like there was a piece missing, and in reality, there was. No one knew where Bucky was, or if he would ever be seen again.
