SUMMARY (given by the author): “Jamie asked me out on a date,” Sam says.

Bucky swallows. “Took him long enough,” he says, keeping his tone light. He bumps their shoulders together for good measure. “You should go for it.”

“You really think so?” Sam asks, looking at him.

“Yeah, man,” Bucky says. He fixes his gaze on Torres, high up in the sky, sunlight glinting off his wings. It hurts Bucky’s eyes. He blinks, rapidly. “You should be with somebody who can make you happy.”

(In which Sam starts dating someone who is not Bucky, and Bucky pines, gets seriously injured, and proves himself wrong.)


Excerpt:
“Jamie is nice,” Bucky says, because he can’t deny it—Jamie is nice. Kind. He brought a plate of homemade cookies to Sunday family dinner that first time, and never once stared at Bucky’s vibranium arm. “You should go for it.”

“You really think so?” Sam asks, looking at him.

“Yeah, man,” Bucky says. He fixes his gaze on Torres, high up in the sky, sunlight glinting off his wings. It hurts Bucky’s eyes. He blinks, rapidly. “You should be with somebody who can make you happy.”


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
Such a great little fic that hits so many of my favorite tropes. I’m so happy I found this. It’s about Bucky who has a serious case of pining when Sam starts dating someone. Bucky is ok with this, though. Sam deserves a good guy and Bucky isn’t that guy. So Bucky starts to distance himself, visits Europe for a bit and when Sam needs him for a mission he protects him with his life. While recovering from his serious injury Bucky learns that he wasn’t the only one who was pining away. I loved it! Pining, Angst, badly injured!Bucky, worried and caring!Sam, panic attacks in the hospital due to Bucky’s past experiences, Sam taking care of Bucky, banter and a satisfying ending... so much good in this little fic!
