Based on this prompt on the capkink meme: "I just want to see an AU where both Bucky and Steve fall off the train and get captured by Zola (say someone else stops Schmidt, like Peggy or the Commandos or whoever). So Bucky gets his metal arm and superhumanness and everything, maybe they keep Steve on ice in order to control him. Until everything goes wrong and they escape to kick ass.
I don't care - whatever you want, I just want to see Avengers/the Winter Soldier w/ Bucky and Steve fighting on the same side against Loki/Hydra. And while Steve/Bucky is preferred, it's not required."
so this is what happens when I hang out at the kink meme instead of doing housework. I didn't even bother beta-ing before posting to ao3, terrible. :(
this fic is an AU from the first movie, so not really spoilery for the new movie except for the obvious.
