i'm looking for a specific fic, but i would also love recs that are in the same vein.
so the fic i'm looking for, bucky was the winter soldier for a while, as per usual. but a couple years before steve is found in the artic and defrosted, shield found and rehabilitated bucky. i think it was around three years before? and steve is defrosted and he's super confused and to top it all off, bucky is there but super different. he's working with shield and you know, the metal arm, etc.
i can't remember whether it was gen or bucky/steve. probably is over on ao3 .
