    Summary

    In this story, Tony Stark and Steve Rogers are contemporaries, and both have hard-knock lives in 1939 New York. Hard to say whose is worse. Steve is sickly. Tony's a whore. They become friends-- the world is going crazy with war, adding to the tension of daily life.

    Tags will probably change, maybe the rating will, too. Tony is/was an underage prostitute, but as that's not explicit*, I felt the warning tag was misleading, however if even that much is disturbing, I thought I'd best mention it here.

    *not explicit yet, I don't know where the story is going. But since nookie is difficult for me to write, I suspect it won't become explicit.

    (There's tons of Google Research in the times and events of daily life in NYC and world events. Where reasonable, factoids have been woven into the story, but there's a lot left over that wound up in chapter notes.)

    Summary

    August, 1941. On the streets of Gotham City, they say the Four Families are untouchable, and no one is more dangerous than Batman. Tonight, both these myths are about to be shattered. The first by the Dark Knight himself. The second by a myth far older than the City. One of the deep myths before the oldest books. A myth that's mighty, and unrelenting, and wondrous.

    Summary

    Fem!Barnes--Jane Austen Barnes--and Steve Rogers

     
    I wanted to write a female version of Bucky because I was honestly interested in how gender would have affected the character of Bucky Barnes. In the 40s, Jane Barnes would have had a really REALLY different experience than Bucky would have. At least socially--the expectations put on her as a young female raised an Italian-Irish Catholic.

    The war experience, of course, is different because she would not have been allowed to be involved in direct combat. But Zola and company--were looking for strong wills, not only strong bodies. Among all these men--it's obvious that some of this violence is directed at her only because she's a woman. That's just a fact of life for most women.

    There really is no difference between Bucky and Janie as the Winter Soldier because the Winter Soldier is a tool, a thing. I don't really imagine their emotional reactions being all that different either.

    I don't like the idea of 'feminizing' a character or 'masculinizing' for that matter. I want Jane to have her own experience and identity but still be recognizable as an alternate!Bucky.
