Hey guys, I hate to do this but I've been going through the library tags and Ao3 tags all morning but haven't had any luck finding this fic. It's an older Modern day no powers AU with skinny!Steve and amputee!Bucky, Bucky's learned to play the guitar with his metal arm and is in a band and Steve is a skinny little punk who has a hat that he wears everywhere that his mom got him as a kid. They meet through friends and fall for one another but Bucky freaks when Steve says he loves him (cont)
(pt 2) I remember reading it on Ao3 - other details include that Bucky was orphaned but Becca was adopted by her foster family so he has issues w/ commitment and abandonment, and Sarah is still alive but is dying of cancer. And at one point they all go out for Halloween and Steve dresses up as the Beast while Bucky dresses up as Belle. Any idea as to the title?
Could it be
In which Steve is deaf and Bucky is an amputee.
Bucky Barnes is studying for his masters in Music Composition at Juilliard when he unexpectedly meets skinny little artist SteveRogers in a book store one Saturday. They both have their issues and it’s going to take a lot to understand each other, but with a little help from friends and family, they might be able to make this work.
