    Summary

    The night sky is dark, an empty void except for the pinpricks of dancing starlight.

    “Are stars supposed to dance?” asks Carlos. “I thought that was a, uh, metaphor.”

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "I know," says Carlos, too loud. "People only heard the middle of the broadcast, and thought aliens really were invading."

    "No." Cecil's brow furrows. "People heard the end of the broadcast, and thought they were safe."

    Carlos looks at Cecil, and Cecil looks at Carlos. They are sitting just across the table, just across a chasm of understanding.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers met Tony Stark in Afghanistan in 2011, when they were taken captive after their convoy was decimated by the Ten Rings.

    Three years later, Steve is slowly getting his life back after the trauma of an imprisonment he can barely remember. He still has nightmares and attacks of paranoia and panic, and still blames himself for the death of the soldiers under his command. But he also has his friends, a cat and a good job. Most of the time he's happy.

    Then he comes back from a weekend away and discovers someone's been staying in his apartment. And then he sees a beautiful, haunted man who shouldn't be familiar, but is. Steve's nightmares suddenly include a stranger with blue-grey eyes, and he wakes up mourning for someone who may not even be real.

    And then Steve learns in the worst way possible that there was another soldier with him and Tony in the cave: James Buchanan Barnes, who kept them alive and then supposedly died helping them escape. And who no one told Steve about, because he couldn't bear to remember.

    Bucky is alive, and he was in Steve's apartment. But with his careful, quiet life unraveling under the strain, Steve might never be able to find out why.

    "Me too," Bucky says, leaning into Steve's touch. He laughs, then looks up at Steve, still smiling. "But I didn't bring your cat home. It was the other way around."

    Summary

    “Why did you think I wouldn’t like you for being gay?” Steve asks gently.

    “You’re Captain America.” Eli’s got his teeth clenched and is resolutely looking ahead. “You stand for truth and justice and the American way. You stand for American morals. You stand for…” he shrugs awkwardly. “Not people like me.”

    Steve blows the air out of his cheeks slowly, trying to figure out how to keep the anger out of his voice so Eli doesn’t think it’s at him.

    Or, Steve comes to terms with his new world, and gains some children in the process.

    Summary

    "Finish the incantation!" he yells, as he and Hamilton run through the woods. They may outrun one of the beasts, but not all of them. Blades do not work to kill them - Lafayette knows because Lafayette has tried. Blades don’t work, neither does gunpowder or consecrated iron or fire or holy water or cursing loudly at them in English, French, and the little Prussian he’s picked up from the Baron.

    Lafayette - and magic.
