*has been feeling increasingly morose over the last couple of weeks, not really sure why, can't put his finger on it, he's just listless and plagued by a strange sadness that follows him around no matter what he does, it even hits him when he's trying to teach Thor the rules of baseball while they watch a Giants & Dodgers game, and it's almost impossible to be unhappy when Thor's around, so he KNOWS something's wrong, ends up spending a lot of time sitting in the Tower's oxygen garden, a weird and enormous floor of the tower that's like an indoor forest, he doesn't really know why it's there but it's nice, it's quiet, and he can sketch the flowers*

Hey, no, stay -- I'm serious, sit your pretty little ass down, Rogers, obviously you're allowed in here. *studies him* You okay?

Mm. Decompressing is one of my favorite things to do, but, uh, JARVIS seemed worried about you. You do know that sitting around moping isn't on Natasha's list of approved decompressing activities? Or it wouldn't be, if she had one.

*winces, wonders how soon he could call Pepper in to fix this because wow he is not the right person to be trying to make anyone feel better* Uh. So. What's, um. What's wrong?

Fuck. *softly, because yeah, okay, that's a doozy, hesitates for a second before sitting down against a tree opposite Steve, and yeah, he wouldn't be sitting down so fast if Steve was sad about his old girlfriend, but he never pretended to be a great person* That's -- rough.

*doesn't respond right away, wishes he'd gotten on making that Steve-specific booze he had thought about making months ago so he'd have something of use to offer him, but as it is, he just has himself* How did he die? You don't have to say, obviously, but -- the history books were always pretty vague on that point, and -- if you think talking about it'd help?

*maybe it's the ten year old scifi fan in him, but his first thought is, if there's no body he's not dead -- and he knows that's ridiculous, of course it doesn't apply to real life, but he can't shake it*

Doesn't sound like your fault to me.

They didn't give you wings. *pauses, then makes a face at himself* That didn't come out right, sorry, I just mean -- strength isn't everything, sometimes. Can't blame yourself for not jumping off after him.

*huffs a laugh, trying not to show just how thrilled he is by Steve's saying that, and decides to put a little of himself on the line in return* I, um. Growing up, I, you know, read the Captain America comics, and heard stories from my dad, and you were always this -- unattainable level of perfection, right, I think Howard always wished I was more like you and less like him, but Bucky -- I always sort of. Identified with him more. *shrugs, looks away* Always thought that given the choice, I'd rather be him, 'cause he was so important to you, so he. He must've been pretty happy, even with the, um. Dying.

A man after my own heart! *grins a little* He pass on any of that action to you?

A lot? *studies him* How many dates are we talking about?

And how many of those ended in you getting any action?

*leans forward* But you knew that. You knew that for sure after the first -- I don't know, five dates, you must have. So why'd you keep doing it? Couldn't have been fun.

Right, yeah, but, I mean. *eyes him, there's something here, something in the blush spreading across Steve's cheeks and down his neck, and he definitely has a theory as to what it is* You met Rhodey, right, he's been my best friend for a good chunk of my life, and I don't know if I've ever done something just because he asks me to. And yeah, okay, I'm kinda stubborn, but -- I don't think most people do stuff they don't want to just because their buddy asks.
