    Summary

    While overseas in the Allied effort to defeat Nazi Germany, Sergeant James Buchanan Barnes writes letters back home to his family. His words barely scratch the surface of his experiences.

    A comic/MCU crossover character study for Bucky Barnes, exploring his childhood while his father was stationed in the mid-west, his transplant to Brooklyn and forming of his friendship with Steve Rogers, and finally his experiences as a Howling Commando. Basically, this is all about James' relationships: the relationship with his father, mother and sisters; the evolving relationship with Steve both as a young man during the Depression and then as comrades post-Project Rebirth. Not as much original plot as my other fics, but something I wanted to do because Captain America: The First Avenger was about Steve. So this is a treatment of CA:TFA from James' perspective.

    The first 22 Chapters are a long build with many original characters.

    Chapter 23 introduces Steve Rogers, for those that would like to jump in the middle.

    Summary

    Helaene Slater had always known that one day she would change the world. World War Two has just heated up and Helaene applies to the MI5 in England to help in the war effort. Being ‘overqualified’ for any position there she is eventually picked out by Agent Peggy Carter and recruited into the Strategic Scientific Reserve to train soldiers for the Western Front. With Peggy’s help and her own skill set, she becomes a solid agent and an exceptional officer. Everything is standard procedure until the puny Steve Rogers is drafted and dropped into her hands. At first she feels nothing but pity for him and wonders who in their right mind would allow him to even bear arms. It is up to her to train him and watch him become Captain America, the ultimate Super-Soldier, all whilst attempting to suppress her budding affections for him.

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes was from Brooklyn but no one cared about that until he fought with Captain America and no one called him Bucky until he met Steve Rogers and somehow it all came back to him. He was seven when they first met and ninety-seven when they met again and he had lived a long life, but most of it had been under ice and he had lots of good memories but they had been stolen. He had lived the memories once and once the war was over he would have to find them and learn how to live again. It was not the life he would have chosen for himself but, Hydra aside, it had not been a bad life.
