    Summary

    A whisper. A caress. A promise of something more.

    Lies, blood, tears, voices rising, an uproar.

    Death, darkness, their love was no more.

    (Excerpt)

    "As if, Daichi..." The silver haired singer chuckled, having the older, taller boy in his arms and on his chest, the two snugly pressed against each other in the lieutenant's bed. "I'm just saying." Daichi grinned, as Sugawara's voice lifted once again and he began to sing that soft sweet melody from earlier. It was relaxing, spread warmth throughout his body as they settled down from their banter, slender fingers running through dark locks endearingly as the room was filled with the sound of Sugawara's angelic voice.

    "Baby we're falling, falling..."

    Summary

    June 1944. She didn't want to give them her son, but she didn't have a choice. History runs in circles around itself, never a straight line. (No gore or graphic anything, but lots of pain and unpleasantness. No cursing, for once. Headcanon heavy. Just a little short thing that's been on my mind for a while.)

    Until the cannon is rusted, protect the people. Until the engine runs no more, remain on the hill. Until the moss has grown so thick the visor cannot be see through, watch over the village.

    Summary

    1949- World War II ended and all the boys came home heroes, except for Tony Stark. After the war, Tony returned Stateside disgraced because his plane went down and his father traded secrets with Imperial Japan to gain his freedom. Once he dreamed of going to Hollywood and becoming a star, now he’s stuck singing in a club run by Victor von Doom – the same man he used to (and maybe still does) have a relationship. Victor protects him when the committee on un-American activities threatens, so he owes the man his life and his soul. Tony Stark only wants to sing and forget his worries. But then one day a war hero walks into the club and starts to ask questions. Steve Rogers with his earnest eyes and his honest expression draws Tony like a moth to the proverbial flame. But Steve the war hero has secrets of his own, and when their two worlds collide – well, it just might be the death of both of them.
