    Summary

    It’s 1949. Hollywood’s system of powerful studios and contract stars is fading fast as a new decade looms. Tony Stark thinks he’s just the type of forward-thinking, madcap genius that can solve the dream factory’s woes, and maybe he can.

    If not for a certain distraction named Steve Rogers, the golden boy who should clearly be twenty-feet high on the silver screen yet seems determined to stay hidden behind the scenes. Tony’s used to getting what he wants, but now he’s not sure what that is. Or rather, who that is.

    Summary

    “Can you walk?”, she asks, and you just nod dumbly. You could probably convince yourself that all of this is a dream if you wanted to, but it's not a dream, it's totally real and none of it makes any fucking sense.

    “Pull up the hood. It's not fitted yet, so at night anybody else will just think you've got tiny horns and a complex about them.” The Alt turns to leave, makes it a few steps, and then turns around again. “Get that projectile dispenser back and keep your eyes wide open.”

    Summary

    [Sequel to these scars are just a trace.]

     

    She doesn’t want to be known as Colonel. That is too much responsibility; and she has had it with responsibility. She is not the same woman who joined the army all those years ago, at nineteen; she lied about her age and she wonders if that was honestly a mistake. Her entire life has been about the army, the war; she has been a devoted soldier, and now that it’s all over, well––what does that mean? All of that work, all of those orders, all of those poor, poor men.

    Hands under the table, she lowers her gaze from her commanding officer. He’s watching her fondly, and he expects her to be happy about this promotion. All soldiers love promotions. Don’t they?

    She whispers three words, leaking with shame and guilt.
     
    ‘What did you say?’ He asks.

    Peggy hesitates, clenches and unclenches her fist. She clears her throat.

    ‘I said “God help me”, sir.’
