Summary: Everybody–including Steve himself–had been surprised when he’d turned out to be an alpha. The other boys had pegged him for an omega, and a bad one at that; one of the many jokes at his expense was that Barnes only liked him because Steve was even lower on the food chain than an omega with delusions of beta-status. Steve can still remember the feral grin Bucky’d given him after they’d heard that one for the first time, blood on his teeth from his split lip, and the way his voice had cracked when he’d said “I like you for a lot more’n that, Rogers.”
Why You Should Read This: This is the first A/B/O fic I’ve ever read and all others have to match up to it. There is awkwardness galore between Alpha Steve and Omega Bucky and the story is made better by it all. It’s not for anyone who doesn’t like A/B/O.
