    Summary

    "Do you want to kill Nazis?"

     

     

     

    America had been thrown into war, and Sharon Carter was desperate to fight on the front lines. She had been fighting her whole life, fighting something or another: illness or doctors, bullies or herself. During wartime, maybe, the fighting might actually make a difference. So yes, Sharon decided. She wanted to kill Nazis.

    If she ever backs off from that fight, she promises herself now, she doesn't deserve to be called Captain America.

    Summary

    Set in the twentieth century, this is the story of Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes. Before they became Captain America and the Winter Solider. Before the war. Before the world put all of its weight on their shoulders.

    Summary

    Time travel is a common theme in many historical fan fictions. Why wouldn’t it be? Many people arguably want to experience parts of the past whether it is the late 1990s, the Sengoku period, or even the mid to late Victorian Era. After all, in each one of these settings, there have been thrilling tales of monsters, faith, and possible romance with really intriguing characters that are difficult to find today. It’s even better when we get to see some of our favorite and most complex characters interact in crossovers, just to see what they might do, whether it is solve a mystery, battle to the death, or even just converse over hilarious or morally ambiguous topics.

    In the first part of this tale, travel to the Victorian Era with time travelers from the year 2549, where Earth and all we know is ancient history, and in some ways, literal ashes. How will these travelers cope with not only the past, but near-extinct social concepts such as sexism and racism, the supernatural including demons and reapers, and the most horrible of all, no plumbing? Better yet, how will they preserve the past so that humanity will survive what is to come?

    Summary

    ABC invites you to the 60th anniversary special of the beloved family classic “The Sound of Music”. A tuneful, heartwarming story, based on the real life story of the Rogers Family singers, one of the best known concert groups of the era. Actually, it's the story of Antony Stark, an Italian monk whose best shot at escaping Reich controlled Austria is to become the tutor of the seven children of Captain Stefen Rogers. The hills are not alive with music, they are swarming with Nazis and Tony's not the only one keeping secrets or desperately trying to save what he loves. What he loves has gotten really REALY confused, but maybe he's not alone in that either.

    Summary

    Sinclair Lewis once famously said, “When fascism comes to America, it will be wrapped in the flag and carrying a cross.” This is a story about what would happen if Tony Stark lived in a world where that had happened.

    He's an American inventor, co-owner of an aeronautics company. He meets Loki Von Borson, second son of the head of Produktionszentrum Von Borson, and they have a liaison. Later on, his co-owner and friend, Obadiah Stane, finds out about him and Loki, and uses the information to take the company for himself. I can tell you that part, because it doesn't need to be a surprise. I can also tell you Tony ends up in a prison camp, and that there is probably going to be some torture in here. The rest is a surprise. Read the story if you want to find out.

    Summary

    They had all been waiting for John to come home for so long that his arrival felt anticlimactic. It was like Martha was expecting John to step out of the carriage a personification of all the justifications he had given for his absence. In perfect military dress or a barrister’s costume, maybe carrying volumes of the classics or a sword or a rifle or something. Instead, he simply looked like every other South Carolina gentleman, but a little more travel-worn and tired.

    John Laurens's time back in South Carolina, before he went to fight.

Arendelle's parliament consents in exchange for hegemony and a heir, while Queen Elsa consents to take custody of her cousin's country and family.

    NOW WITH ILLUSTRATIONS

    When the Scout makes a joke about the Sniper's 'rape van,' the words hit too close to home, but not for the reasons anyone expects.

    (In other words, bushmedicine, wherein Sniper was sexually assaulted in his formative years before becoming a merc, and it led to him becoming a reclusive, unhygienic loner who perpetually distances himself because of trust issues. Also wherein Medic winds up being his inadvertent confidant.)

    Summary

    "I feel like the moment I’ll see you again, my heart will jump out of its cage screaming: “Love, it’s you! I’ve found you!” and you’ll put a bullet right through it. I won’t mind. If anyone deserves to do it – it’s you. You’d be doing a service. Nothing more than putting down an old, cold, dog that should have been dead long ago."

    ...

    Waking up in the twenty-first century wasn’t the worst part about surviving the war. Learning that history was rewritten, half his family and friends are dead, and being forced to finally live a “normal” life without Stella was. He’s not “Captain America” and he never will be -- that was her… but no one cared to remember who Stella Barnes was. He’s angry, and has to cope with this growing darkness and hatred within in. He has to come to terms with the fact that Stella’s name has been ignored and destroyed by history. And finally, he has to face a ghost… the same ghost he thought only existed in his head… A Pale Lady that’s been haunting him since she fell off a train in Switzerland.

When the Russians–and their true leader–are unmasked, they must trust one another and resolve long-harbored emotions to stop the real threat.
