*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*

*it was weird at first, having everyone move in here, feeling kind of like the manager of a hotel who really wishes he hadn't ever gone into the hotel management business and had done something with his life that was less answering room service calls and more -- right, that metaphor got away with him, but anyway -- pretty soon after that, though, he started to feel protective (in a different, less creepy, more constructive way than mother hen Rogers does, he likes to think), because if his team is under his roof, they're his responsibility. so he set up JARVIS to alert him of abnormal behavior of each team member, and it took some refinement to get a solid definition of abnormal in place, but it's been a pretty reliable system since then.

so when JARVIS informs him that Captain Rogers has been in the aboretum for three hours, drawing a little but mostly staring off into space, he takes that as good as an alarm. when he walks in, he makes no efforts to be subtle, that tends to not work with Steve*

Rogers? You in here?

*follows his voice and JARVIS's earlier instructions* Did I get a British accent all of a sudden? That'd be pretty weird, huh. Forsooth, fair maiden... *slips through two bushier trees and there's Steve, sitting on the ground with a sketchbook in his lap* Well, aren't you a regular Walden. What's shakin', bacon?

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.

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