Continuing my tradition of posting fic for my birthday. It's a crappy gift, I know, but it's all I got.

These Long and Better Days To Come (33480 words) by gwyneth rhys
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Captain America (Movies), Marvel Cinematic Universe
Rating: Explicit
Warnings: Graphic Depictions Of Violence
Relationships: James "Bucky" Barnes/Steve Rogers
Characters: James "Bucky" Barnes, Steve Rogers, Thor (Marvel), Sam Wilson, Natasha Romanov, Tony Stark, Clint Barton
Additional Tags: Non-Serum Steve Rogers/Winter Soldier Bucky Barnes | Shrinkyclinks, De-Serumed Steve Rogers, Winter Soldier Bucky Barnes, Impostors, Remote Cabin in the Woods, Non-Linear Narrative, Time-Trippyness, Time Shifts/Time Slips, This Hydra benefits package really sucks
Summary:

He had forgotten what curiosity could feel like. Whoever the impostor was, he’d need help, and this team might not be equipped to find him. Bucky had been a soldier, once. Competent and skilled. The best, they’d said. Something inside him rose up from dormancy, came alive at the thought. He was a soldier once and he knew how to do this: where to go, how to get in. Skills that were his unique gift.

Happy birthday and it's not crappy at all! jeez.

Bucky rapped the barrel of the SIG against his head a few times as he said, “I just—I just want to know why you’re doing this. I want to know what the play is here, what the end game should be.” If they were trying to flush out the Soldier after all this time, dump him in a prison or even send him back to Hydra.

“There’s no end game,” Not-Steve said, pity in his voice. Well, fuck that. He pointed the gun at him, but he stayed resolute, chin jutting out, eyes flashing. “There is no play here, no end game, and threatening me isn’t going to change that, you oaf.”

God, he was always such a contrary little sonofabitch. No, it’s not Steve. Not his Steve. He thumbed the safety off.

“I’m not gonna lie just to get you to release me.” Words like a weapon, stabbing him in the gut. How many times had Steve said he wouldn’t lie, even when lying would save his sorry, troublemaking ass? “Whatever it is you think you remember, you can ask me, I can tell you if it’s true or not. Maybe that’ll help. I wouldn’t lie to you about any of it, you know that—I can see it in your eyes, you know I’m telling the truth.”


MY HEART. Those boys.

A very interesting take! I enjoyed how the flashbacks supplemented the "current" storyline.
