    Summary

    What if after the events of the Second Great War that was the result of senseless chaos over a rare mineral that appeared to give miraculous properties, someone decided to create an ideal society where only the best of every field may survive in--deserving of their credit and worth through a Laissez-faire society?

    A disgraced doctor on the run, an engineer who seeks to invent, and two others stripped of their identity turned into Protectors for reasons that could only be filled with deceit and betrayal...This is the story of several individuals, each having their own tale to tell as they survive through a dream that was turned into a nightmare out of the darker side of human nature.

    Summary

    Bucky hated the cold. Not the delight of the cool sea breeze or the welcome relief an electric fan brought on a blazing summer's day but the biting burn of snow and ice and winter's bleak chill which seeped into marrow of your bones...

    "Wouldn't you rather be snuggling up to some buxom broad than my bony ass?"

    "Sure, but she'd want me to marry her before she starts paying half the rent. You've never once asked me to make an honest man of you. You're fine with snuggling in sin."

    "You callin' me a cheap date, Barnes?"

    "Just as well you are, Rogers. It'd be real difficult to find a new roommate if you froze to death because I wasn't here to warm you up. There ain't much of you, but dead bodies sure do stink up a place."

    "My hero."

    Even when he had nothing, Steve had Bucky. Now that Steve has Bucky back, Steve knows he would burn the world to ash to keep Bucky safe. But then, the feeling has always been mutual.

    Summary

    And on some level, perhaps he should’ve known the words that were about to leave her mouth. He was feeling a bit too confident, after all. Thinking that perhaps the tides were about turn in his favor. It’s been too quiet these past few days. Like a calm before a storm. The silence hangs heavily in the air before she finally speaks, her expression careful as she met Arthur’s eyes. Her face is saying something that he can’t quite place, a sympathy and a fear all woven into one look.

    “France has fallen to the Germans, sir. We’ve lost all contact with them.”


    Arthur’s out the door before she can even finish.

    Summary

    In 2008, Dean takes over his late grandfather’s tailor shop in Normal, Illinois, and discovers an old leather flight jacket in the attic. A hand-painted set of wings on the back, the name Novak, and a three-quarters sewn circle of red cotton are the only clues he has to the jacket’s origins, and he enlists his historian brother to help him find the owner.

    It doesn’t take long for Sam to trace the jacket to Lieutenant Castiel Novak–a pilot who lived in Dean’s apartment until his mysterious disappearance a few years after WWII–and what little information they find about him is fascinating. The guy was a stone cold badass. A stone cold fox, too, if the grainy old newspaper photo is anything to go by.

    It’s to be expected that Dean idly wishes he could have known the man as he closes the annoyingly unfinished circle of thread on the jacket.

    Less expected, however, is that wish coming true.
