One day, a piano appears in Avengers Tower.
Steve is the first to find it. He’s been unable to sleep, lately. Partly it’s because of too much adrenaline in his system. He’s still technically on the run. Too many things to think about. Avengers Tower contains people he can trust, people he knows, people who watch his back, but Avengers Tower doesn’t quite contain a team, not yet. They’re still picking up the pieces. He’s still not up to welding them all back together again like he once did, with Chitauri breathing down their necks and the malevolent ice in Loki’s gaze.
Sure, Sam is here, and now Natasha is on her way back - she told him, personally, over the phone, instead of just emailing him or sending him some other kind of message - and for some reason Bruce is bringing in some kind of backup? Danvers and Ross - the names are unfamiliar to Steve.
And there’s always a but.
There’s also the matter of the Winter Soldier. Of Bucky.
Who is here in the tower, but who is no longer the man Steve knew (his friend, his protector, his companion, his heart). A man stuck out of time. Stuck out of his mind.
Steve wishes he knew how all of that feels.
The first night, he sits at the piano. Just sits carefully on the bench because he doesn’t want to break it, doesn’t want to break anything, and if he put his hands on the keyboard he might not even be able to peck out any of the old songs, and he’s not entirely sure he wants to hear any of those old songs.
The second night, he tries to draw the strings.
The third, he turns his back on the piano entirely. Tries to hum instead. A ballad, a snatch of swing, a corny old advertising jingle.
On the fourth night, he’s no longer alone with the piano.
Burnished lamplight on one shoulder, tell-tale flares and reflections, and a melancholy old old tune. Bucky’s hair hangs in his face, obscures most of his expressions, but Steve can see his throat working, see the tension in his jaw - but it’s not the tension of struggle, of trying to remember and trying to forget at the same time, of nightmares and sullen withdrawal.
No, he’s tense because he’s trying to remember what comes next. The music stops and starts. There is a certain fluidity as well as a certain hesitation to the cadences.
Beethoven floats into the sleepless New York night and Steve is caught on it, hanging from the music, and he doesn’t ever want this moment to end. Bucky’s hands on the keys, slowly working back up to fluency. Steve’s heart is in his throat. The music wraps around him and around Bucky.

Ginnifer Goodwin on Jimmy Kimmel Live
"They had me rigged on this thing where I’m holding onto handles on his shoulder with my legs wrapped around his neck. He’s kinda trying to throw me off and I’m on top of him and it was so many hours of me, riding him like a mechanical bull.”
"And we’re looking over at the producers and we’re like, ‘are you happy now? Do we have enough footage?’ and they’re like, ‘looks great on camera!" - (x)
