some may call it fate.

BUCKY BARNES HAD FOUND HIS PLACE. Adjusted to the daunting world filled with its perils and gems, he freed his mind from its old cage. He was happy, but it was brief for soon cames empty graves with the bodies found miles away, a sick new flesh on their yellowed bones. His nightmares came back with a vengeance but not when he's asleep, no. Sleep had all but shunned him and the nightmares followed him into the waking world.
Lost, trying desperately to keep the dead at peace and the living protected, he left himself haunted. On a whim to find some solace, Bucky is lulled into a cozy tea shop in hopes of finding a remedy for his insomnia. For a time he finds peace, and there is light unlike any other.
But the shadows keep creeping closer, and closer.
I was once drowning, cold in the dark, and all alone.
Until you came along and reached a hand in to pull me ashore, a radiance among the storm.
I will always fight to come back to you, my guiding light.
Even if the tides pull me under again.
This is set after Endgame wherein most of the events occurred, except Steve never stayed back in the past because to me, that was really out of his character. Sam is still the new Captain America, and he will take precedence over Steve. Meaning, Steve won't be in the fic all that much.
It's going to be kind of a slow burn fic. There's a lot of different elements I want to try out, and I may be a bit ambitious with the story that may have the book being quite long.
I didn't choose a faceclaim for the characters because I always end up spending way too much time deciding on who fits the best instead of just writing. You can envision whoever and if you have any ideas for the cast, let me know!
As for warnings: violence, descriptions of death.
Remember, the plot and my oc's belong to me, so please do not copy!
Thank you for reading and as always, your support is appreciated!
