    Summary

    “They really didn’t want the mask to come off.” Hill thumbed through the scans, and pulled out a film that she then handed over to Sam, face mostly expressionless but for the flat line of her pursed lips.

    Sam accepted the film and held it up to the light, angling so both he and Steve could see it, squinting at the outline of the Winter Soldier’s skull, and the blips of unnatural white that showed up, God, in his brain, not to mention about half his teeth, plus the mask, with its thin protrusions—

    “Those are pins,” Steve realized. He looked over at Hill. “The mask—it’s nailed to his face.”

    Hill’s face was as unmoved as ever. “Like I said. They really didn’t want it coming off.”

    Summary

    Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.

    So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.


    In 1943, the Howling Commandos wrote goodbye letters to be given to their loved ones in the event of their deaths.

    In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.

    Summary

    “Heil Hydra,” the enemy agent shouts. 

    “Heil this, motherfucker,” says Captain America, shooting off a rocket.

    Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.

    ETA: Hello, I fixed this by taking it out of all collections. Apologies to those of you who had marked it in open or public ones, someone put it in a private collection and it disappeared, prompting a floor of despair in my inboxes on multiple platforms. If this has appeared as a new work, that's just AO3's default move for revealing 'unrevealed' stories. It has not been edited, save for this note. P.S. If you are adding works to collections please make sure the collection is public! -- Nat (Febricant)
