    Summary

    'We Fett clones were great soldiers. No one could or would ever try to argue with that. We were engineered, conditioned and trained to be versatile and skilled on the field of battle. In war, we knew what we were doing and so we were mature, confident, and serious. Then there was our spare time...'

    Commander Wolffe's hobby was recording stories from the people he encountered during the Clone Wars. Some stories were nostalgia about the strange upbringing of clones on Kamino, some were adventures recounted by soldiers or Jedi, some were just etiological. And since the tone of the war was tragic, Wolffe insisted that all of the stories had to be funny.

    Each chapter is three little stories.

    Wealthy adopted brothers, Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers, return home to the Stark Manor after graduating from boarding school. They, and their hoard of friends, have three months of absolute freedom before beginning their freshmen year of college. In an era synonymous with the Jazz Age, Prohibition, flappers, speakeasies, automobiles, cinema, radio, gangster crime, and sexual liberation, it only gets better for Bucky and Steve when they entangle themselves in illicit affairs with the two newest foreign housemaids: Wanda Maximoff and Natasha Romanoff.

    Inspired by Titanic, Downton Abbey, The Great Gatsby, West Side Story, and several Mexican telenovelas about social class divisions.

    Titled after the popular 1926 song I'm Sitting on Top of the World sung by Al Jolson.
