CodenameCarrot

A green bath with a mortician window; a lady is facing away fom the viewer, naked except for a cloth slug low around her hips. Perhaps she'll enter the bath, perhaps she's just an attendant, preparing the room for a future bather.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    While - like all fanfic - this requires a basic knowledge of the fandom to read, this fic is a perfectly encapsulated short story. It has a beginning, a twist, and a resolution with not one word wasted.


    One hand reaches up to touch the little carousel horse [brooch]. “Your mother gave me this, the only time I ever met her.” She smiles. “She was really nice.”

    “When was this?”

    “When I first got to the States…November, 1991.”

    Bucky Barnes: concerned reader and shit stirrer polite letter writer.


    In the second column of your essay, you describe Captain America as strongly anti-German and pro-war even before Pearl Harbor was attacked. This is not accurate. ...

    [Miss Lethbridge] provides a photostat on page 166 of a series of petitions delivered to the League of Nations between 1935 and 1938, requesting that the USA open up its borders and take in refugees from the German regime, to relieve the pressure then mounting in Europe. Miss Lethbridge has found the signature of Steven G. Rogers on all six petitions. He was not even a legal adult until 1939, but he must have lied about his age, and signed anyway. Surely that means he was not pro-war, but against the cruelty of the German regime towards its own people.

    I suppose you will wish to re-think your argument about Captain America in light of these facts.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    In the reboot of Doctor Who, Dalek is in strong competition for my favourite episode - partly for how creepy it is, and partly for how the Dalek is allowed agency in choosing it’s own death. That same agency around suicide, or more delicately choosing to forgo medical treatment, is seen here. And the writing is perfectly suited to the topic: sharp and poignant.


    "I..." Vision says, trailing off awkwardly as Tony stumbles towards the door. "Mr. Stark," he then says, concerned.

    Tony looks at him. "I'm beat," he says tiredly, trying very hard to not shake with the pain. "Vision. I'm played out."

    "… oh," Vision says, his voice small and for a moment he almost looks like he's about to hunch. Of course he doesn't – but he does fiddle with the edge of his sweater vest. "I did not expect that. I'm sorry to hear it."

    "Don't be," Tony says and turns to go. "It's long time coming. Take care, okay?"

    "Mr. Stark," Vision starts, aborts, and then says quietly, "It has been a privilege."

    Summary

    What if Tony Stark suffered more than just shrapnel injuries in Afghanistan? What if he came home less than whole? A series of open-ended, non-linear ficlets focusing on the butterfly effect of Stark's disability.

     

    “Iron Man is twice the man you are, Stark.”

     

    “Yeah, well, these days everyone is.”
