    Summary

    The D.C. gossip mags wouldn’t take kindly to the president’s daughter screwing an agent on her Secret Service detail. Said president would probably take to it even less kindly.

    Luckily said daughter couldn’t give less of a shit – about either of them.

    Summary

    Patagonia, Argentina, 1977.

    After the coup of 1976, Jorge Rafael Videla is in power, the first leader of a brutal dictatorship that will last until 1983. Political opponents and activists are "disappeared" left and right. It is a time of fear and helplessness.

    Florencia and Daniel have moved down to Daniel's hometown at the very south of the country, hoping to distance themselves from their Peronist activism at university that would surely attract the dictatorship's attention. Despite the move, Daniel winds up in prison. When he's miraculously released after only one month, Florencia hopes for their lives to get back to normal, or as normal as they could possibly be in the freezing, windy, barren city that is her new home.

    But something won't leave them alone.

    Summary

    「我不想抓著你說個沒完,」史蒂夫說,「但是,巴恩斯先生?」

    巴奇在門前轉過身,一隻手仍然停留在門把上。「是的,先生?」

    「你知道你也能問我一些問題的,對吧。」史蒂夫的聲音更顯沈靜,他在廚房裡望著巴奇。「只要不是發射核武的密碼就行。」

    巴奇能看見史蒂夫神情中的柔軟,他不確定其他人會怎麼解讀這個表情。「我會銘記在心的,」他說道,全心全意。

    或者,也可以說,這是一個關於史蒂夫・羅傑斯是美國總統,而詹姆士・布坎南・「巴奇」・巴恩斯是他的貼身保鑣的AU故事。
