    Summary

    It’s the photo of the two of you when you’re older that really catches his eye. He’s in uniform, grinning. His arms around you as you smile bemusedly at the camera, your hands on his shoulders. You’re wearing a dress and a striped apron, and he thinks he sees a pin on your dress. The photo’s in black and white, but Bucky can remember the dress being in your favorite color, and the apron being red, white, and blue.

    Bucky seeks answers to what happened to you after he was presumed dead, but first he must tell your story.

    Summary

    James Barnes' past was easy to describe: former soldier, experiment, assassin. He clung to his memories as long as he could, but in the end, it was futile. He became the monster Hydra had created.

    She was a different side to the same coin: nurse, experiment, immortal. She watched the world evolve and become what we know today.

    Their past intertwined and eventually they came together once more. The question is... Who are they now?

    Summary

    They move through the doorway and the sun hits Bucky’s face. His eyes flinch closed involuntarily, but the warmth on his face is more than enough. There’s a breeze too, the freshest air Bucky has breathed in months. It’s chaos outside, a clamor of voices in languages both familiar and foreign. Bucky is glad to ignore it, glad to trust that the Captain will take him to safety. He dares to open his eyes. Everything is fuzzy around the edges, like a waking dream.
     On April 29th, 1945, US forces liberate the concentration camp Dachau. But Captain Steve Rogers and his Howling Commandos have a more specific mission - the rescue and rehabilitation of prisoners experimented on by Arnim Zola, among them, a man named Bucky.

    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Summary

    Sansa found she liked it better outside, the music just as exciting, but out here she could hear Jon’s embarrassed laughter, and his soft apologies when he stepped on her toes. It took him more than one song to find the rhythm that came so easy to her. It took more than three for him to cast her out, then pull her back in; her reaction drew what she could only imagine was a rare smile from him.

    Summary

    ***FINALLY BACK ON TRACK - SO SORRY FOR THE 2 YEAR DELAY***

    Charles Xavier is 19 years old, doe-eyed and soft; Erik Lehnsherr is 24 years old, steely-hard and bitter.

    One is a soldier, the other a refugee.

    Both are mutants.

    There will be pain, oh yes.

    (An AU in which Charles is a wounded British soldier, Erik is the German hiding in France who nurses him back to health, and the contents of this fic are best read to the soundtrack of Atonement.)

    Summary

    Dear Journal, June 20, 1943

    I can’t believe I made it. This is like, the most exciting thing to ever happen to me. Ever. In my whole life! This is even better than kissing that girl from the beach, what was her name, Maryanne? Oh who cares, I’m a pilot!
    If only I could tell Mama. But after all those stupid “Private Snafu” cartoons and, “Watch What You Write!” shit, I don’t even want to try. So, instead, I’m going to write in this journal so I don’t forget all the exciting parts to tell Mama and everyone when I get back. I don’t want to forget a thing!
    I promise to tell you everything I can. From that stupid-head Keith, to my new friends, and maybe a secret mission here and there.

    Summary

    "Reverend Mother, Raven....I- please. I don't want-don't need a break. This is where I belong."
    She shakes her head. "No Charles, I think that you do. In fact, I'm not going to give you a choice. If you still wish to return after your break you will be welcomed with open arms."
