A face didn’t really mean anything, especially in the day and age of plastic surgery as a fashion statement. He had come to think of bones, their structure, as a land— a foundation— that people built upon. He knew that there were at least seven other people in this world at any one point that could share a face. It’s how biology worked— there were only so many combinations of features the world can hope to generate. It was nature, but Steve was disturbed to his bones— deep into his sickly marrow, his core— because it was unnatural to see someone with a face that looked like Bucky’s.

It was worse how Steve’s pulse quickened, but not out of horror. It was wrong how Steve felt like he’d won the lottery before he remembered: it could never be Bucky.

Or, the Repo! Genetic Opera AU no one ever asked for where the future still isn’t kind to Steve Rogers.

Happy Friday! Here’s a fic update!

Okay but like what if the serum made Steve still super strong and fixed his health stuff but he was still short and everything and they got all sad that it didn’t work until Steve punshed a wall out of anger and broke through the whole wall. And they were like holy shit. And like he would be the perfect surprise attack because the Nazis are like what is this child going to do and Steve just fucking wreaks them. And when Steve goes to rescue Bucky, Bucky sees Steve and is like Steve why are you here wtf. You are going to get super hurt and he is like look buck and like bends the metal on his table and Bucky is like holy shit.

I love you. 
I love you, I love you, I love you,
and I don’t give a damn what anyone has to say. 

Let them tell me that you will ruin me. 
Let them warn me about
     the blood pooling in the lines of your palm,
     the disaster lurking at the edges of your shadow,
     the sleepless nights and sunless days shifting in your eyes.
Let them talk their voices hoarse. 
I won’t listen, you know. 

I love you. 
I love you, I love you, I love you,
and even you cannot convince me otherwise. 

You can chase me away all you want, my love.
Wave your steel-blade fingers in front of my eyes.
Shout at me with your death rattle voice. 
Kiss me with your bloodthirsty lips. 
Rattle my bones with your earthquake heartbeat. 

Try all you want, my love,
but you cannot save someone who doesn’t want to be saved
and if loving you is damnation–
and if losing you is salvation—
then by God, I will leap into every circle of Hell
with my eyes wide open and a grin on my lips. 

As the snowman loves the Summer
As the shadow loves the Sun
As the boy with wings loves the Sea–

—  we all love what destroys us ( j.p. )

A Blind Path Home, Part 1

Steve Rogers x Reader

Warning: angst, a scene where reader get’s physically harassed.

A/N: A huge thank you to @yourtropegirl & @heyitssilverwolf for beta-ing this first part. You’ve helped so much!

Summary: It started with a blind date. A date you had skipped out on, but fate had led you right to the man you stood up. Steve Rogers, a man small in stature but big in heart. A chance meeting set everything in motion, but decades later when he is unfrozen, he has been told you have died. But when a mission to retrieve Hydra plans turned up some interesting information, Steve’s left to wonder whether you are still alive. Or is this all just false hope?
