    Summary

    Anna looks at him sympathetically from her spot beside him. “You guys were just kids,” she murmurs, and the pity in her voice irks Castiel.

    “Yes, we were. And look how that turned out. I’m 28 years old and already divorced.” He wishes he didn’t sound so bitter. It would help, maybe, if he felt less like a giant cliché, a walking billboard that said Don’t Marry Your High School Sweetheart!

    Summary

    "A shave, a minor haircut, several weeks of consistent sleep with the help of some of Banner’s sedatives, and he was feeling more like good old Bucky than he had in almost seventy years. Something was still different though, and a long hour studying his face in the mirror, finding every new line, the touches of fading hair at his temples, the small scars from his goggles and mask, had shown him that there was no going back to the cocksure twenty-something who had chased skirts as if his life depended on it.

    Might as well make the best of what was left."
