Penguins in New York making nests by Songstone

Bucky’s life has changed a lot in the eight years that he’s spent away from Brooklyn. In Russia he had found love and lived a happy life, until tragedy stole his wife from him. Now, with a three-year-old daughter to care for on his own, Bucky makes the decision to get back to his roots in the hopes of building a better future for his child.

Our story finds him adjusting to his life in Brooklyn. Life seems to be going well - until it gets better. Steve Rogers re-entering Bucky’s life is just the right kind of surprise. There is a new found attraction between the two that is near-immediate, and the possibility of a happy relationship is there. Bucky isn’t about to ignore it, especially when Steve makes it known that he very much adores Bucky’s ballet dancing, penguin-obsessed , daughter and wants to include her in his life as well.

However, feeling abandoned after Bucky took Vanya to the US, Aleksander Lukin - Vanya’s Grandfather - wants her back in Russia and will stop at nothing to see her ‘home’ again. In the midst of an international custody battle that holds the possibility of beginning another World War, Bucky needs to keep his wits about him and keep his family together.

Take It From Me by castiowl

After a disastrous break up with Brock, Steve is looking to drown his feelings at a bar. Instead, he finds a rakish stranger and decides to take him home. It’s a no-strings-attached, one-night stand, a way to forget all the shitty things Brock made him feel. The stranger is leaving the country anyway, so Steve may as well take advantage of the opportunity for anonymous rebound sex. Steve’ll never see him again, right?

A lot can change in three years.

Tired of being kept awake at night by a screaming baby, Bucky decides to take matters into his own hands.
