I don’t any character or plots in the MCU and don’t make a claim to its creative or economic profit. Just shoveling in the sandbox for a bit, I’ll give them back after playing. Promise.Summary:
You don’t have the words to say it anymore. History has made you better at actions. (Or the one where Bucky devises his own PR plan to go and join the Avengers, because Steve can’t be trusted not to hurt himself)Chapter One

So, finally cross-posting this here from AO3, man, writing this was a wild, wild ride. It started with one scene at the end and then I made up one for the beginning, but the middle... well it kinda ran away with me (only a little bit). I had a great time writing this, because so much inspiration and raw creative energy went into fandom once the Winter Soldier came out. I want to thank my dutiful beta, candygramme
because she wrestles everything I throw at her into grammatically acceptable shape in no time flat. Also, thanks to all the amazingly talented authors who started writing fic about Bucky's recovery, mainly to sate my insane need for more, y'all thought about so much I never even considered and a lot of it made thought stuffs for this fic work.
I just wanted to say that everything fundamentally to vaguely scientific in this story from medical conditions via the topography of the US capital (although I've actually been there and took that walk) to the customs and practices of the American military is derived from abysmally cursory research, a hefty bit of logical extrapolation and a really good wallop of the good old completely-made-it-up-as-I-went-along mentality of artistic license. I hope those of you who know more forgive the glaring holes and rest assured that I did not mean to deliberately misrepresent anything or anyone.
