Chapter 31

The sound of joyful screams and laughter blended with the carnival music, wafting around the beachside amusement park along with the smells of fried foods and cotton candy.  It was the day of the festival that was being held for all the families of children who had been left behind before the blip.  It was an event that you had worked hard to organize in the hopes that the newly blended families could see they weren’t alone.  You wanted them to see that the world was different now and that different could be good.  You wanted to celebrate these new families and how they had adapted to the world.

Chapter 30

The date night with Steve and Bucky and been perfect.  The fear that they’d take everything the wrong way had been completely unjustified.  They’d loved the nostalgia attached to each part and in a way, it gave them something that they had been missing.  It was easy enough for you to share your past with them.  You could take them to see the house you grew up in.  You had photos of your time in school and with your family.  There were ways you could share the nostalgia of your childhood with them that were easy and they could find joy in.  The same wasn’t true for either Bucky or Steve.  Sure some of the buildings were still around but the city had changed so much.  It was a rare moment that they could share something with you that was from their childhood.  That was especially so for Bucky whose memories of the time were hazy and muddled.  The date for him had been like he’d rediscovered a part of his past.

Chapter 29

“Bucky!  Have you got any cash for school lunches?” Steve called down the stairs as he tried to wrangle both Alice, Jacob, and Isabella down with their backpacks.  There was a familiar energy to the house that made it feel more like home than it had in months.  The same kind of noisy chaos from back before the blip, when you and Steve carried grief with you together, supporting each other in a way that had created a happy loving home.  That was how things had been lately.  Yes, it was different.  Jacob lived with Callie in the flat out the back, and Isabella only really came to stay one weekend out of three.  Yet, it was becoming normal again.  Not just normal.  Good.

It was Monday – the worst day for getting them all to school, and today was extra chaotic because Isabella had spent the weekend with you and Callie had been out late on a date.  You appreciated the time with just Steve, Bucky, and the kids, and even more, you appreciated the chaotic struggle to get them all out the door on time.

Chapter 28

Resilient.  It was probably the word that best described you.  Change hurt and sometimes it felt like you were broken and there was no way you would ever really be happy again.  Then slowly those happy moments returned and became more common until they outweighed the grief and the sadness and stress you were carrying, and you could once again say you had a happy life.  That life – and the happiness that surrounded it might be completely different to the one that came before, but it was happiness.  You might break, but you were always able to pull yourself back together and find something new.

This new life was strange in so many ways.  Your closest friend lived in a two-bedroom annex you’d built in your backyard with Jacob, a boy you both considered a son.  You lived in the house with your husband and his boyfriend – a man you were quickly starting to think of as your boyfriend too, and your daughter Alice.  Your oldest son Ryan was away at college, and your other daughter Isabella was gone, taken by her biological parents.  It was a strange family setup where their links of biology were rare with only you and Alice, and Callie and Jacob sharing them, and where there seemed to be far too many parents than you’d normally find.  Yet, while you still missed Bella and grieved for her every day, you had found happiness again.

Chapter 27

A month after coming to Steve with your proposal that he could be with both you and Bucky, the house had begun to settle into a new kind of normalcy.  Work was slowing down now that there was a legal ruling regarding custody, and you were mostly working on running support groups for both parents who had now lost their adoptive children and the ones having to come to terms with missing five years of their children’s lives.  Sometimes you still needed to play mediator, but it was only to help families who wanted to work together to give a child the best possible outcome.  You were less stressed, and you weren’t needed as much.

Synopsis: Bucky Barnes hates winter.  He always looks for the first signs of the ice thawing and new life growing.  When that desire for the end of winter brings to him the god of the spring thaw, he discovers a brand new reason to get through winter.


Chapter 17

“Kobik?  What do you mean you fixed it?”

His foster daughter bounced excitedly in front of him as he crouched down to speak to her.

Bucky was about to leave to take you on your honeymoon while his kids went down to Louisiana to spend time with Sam and Sarah.  When Kobik heard that she wouldn’t see you again for a year her powers had activated.  The little girl who was made from the shards of a cosmic cube could alter reality itself.  She could rewrite history and create life from nothing.  When nothing obvious was changed it made Bucky worry that little bit more.

“I fixed it,” Kobik replied and looked up at you.  “Now you can stay forever and ever.”

“Kobik, honey,” you said.  “I bring the spring.  If I don’t go away there might not be a summer or a fall or a winter.”

Chapter 16

The wedding reception had been the most fun Bucky could remember having since before leaving for war.  Maybe ever.  He’d booked the convention room at a hotel with views of the falls, and spent a long time working with them so that not only was it all vegan options, they were all bright and colorful and using ingredients that you wouldn’t normally see.  There was a salad of mint, peaches, and cucumber, or an Italian wedding soup to start, along with platters of colorful dips paired with warm bread, baby carrots, and crackers.  For the entrees, there was a choice between wild mushroom risotto or ratatouille.  When dessert came along slices of the wedding cake were served with house-made gelato and fresh fruit.  Each glass of champagne was served with a hibiscus flower inside that bloomed when the fizzing liquid touched it.

You had been delighted by every dish and he made sure both you and he always had different courses so that you could try everything.  Sam and Steve had both made speeches and the two of you had danced your first dance and it had been like the rest of the guests didn’t exist, it was just the two of you, eyes locked as you spun around the dance floor.

He had danced with Kobik and you had danced with both Steve and a surprisingly unreluctant RJ.

Chapter 15

The trip north from Springfield to Niagara Falls was quite an event.  With all the planning Bucky had done he’d never really considered that he’d end up with a convoy of people following him.

To be fair, he hadn’t expected to have needed to call in the entire guest list and some to help him call you to him this year either.  Yet, while many had dispersed to return to their normal lives with the plan of going to Niagara closer to the wedding date, Sam, Sarah, Sharon, and Steve had stuck around to help with the last few wedding preparations.

Originally, because Steve was so hard to get to anymore, Bucky planned on doing this without him.  That had hurt to think about, but ‘if you need me’ didn’t translate to good things like wedding days – at least not to Bucky.  But Steve was here now, and he’d had been adamant he stayed for it.  So now Bucky’s wedding party had three people and not two.

Chapter 14

The winter was shorter than it usually was.  Bucky worried that the late start and the unusual warmth would mean that people weren’t wishing you were here strongly enough to bring you.  He debated various options.  Your dress was being made nearby, so if he went further North you wouldn’t be able to get the final fitting done – but maybe if he picked it up you could find a tailor where you were to finish it off.

He couldn’t remember ever wishing that the winter was colder before but he was definitely wishing it now.

It was just before the frosts started to lift that a new idea came to him.  He called up everyone he knew.  Everyone.  Not just his friends, but the acquaintances that seemed to tolerate him more than like him.  The people who didn’t really know him – they just knew of him because of Steve.  He contacted people who were off on adventures in space.  He contacted people that if he was honest with himself he was a little scared of.  He contacted people who owed him and ones he owed and had no right to ask anything of.  No stone was left unturned.  No favor was left uncashed.

Chapter 13

Bucky couldn’t remember the last time he had such a long stretch of feeling good and hopeful.  Even back before the war when he was that carefree guy he didn’t even recognize anymore, he had periods where he worried about his parents making ends meet or Steve’s health would be so bad that he’d worry he wouldn’t survive the week.  Yes, back then Bucky hadn’t experienced the trauma he’d been through now, and he’d played up the happy-go-lucky ladies-man image, but there were times where things were dark and he was scared or depressed or just didn’t feel like participating in the world.

This year it almost felt like he was experiencing one long high.  Even going on a mission couldn’t dampen his spirits completely.  In fact, it was a mission that ended up getting him that little bit closer to the life he had started daydreaming about.
