    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.

    Summary

    In the aftermath of the Second World War, Erik Lehnsherr -- survivor of Dachau, former resistance fighter in Occupied Europe -- joins forces with US intelligence to hunt down escaped Nazis. A sensitive mission in Rio de Janeiro calls for Erik to recruit a new operative ... one nobody is sure whether to trust. Charles Xavier is the stepson of convicted Nazi spy Kurt Marko, a rapidly worsening drunkard and a homosexual who hardly even bothers to hide his predilections. Hardly ideal.

    But Charles is the only person with any chance of getting close to Sebastian Shaw. The one man who might allow them to complete the mission.

    And although Erik's business is keeping secrets, Charles brings something out in him that he's worked desperately to hide --

    (Pastiche with Alfred Hitchcock's "Notorious.")

    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-- where it goes from here, I am not sure.

    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.
