    Summary

    In 2018, Steve, Sam, and Bucky embark on a mission to explore a Hydra-owned warehouse when a kid with mutant powers sends Steve 18 years into the future. After figuring out where (and when) he is, Steve tracks Bucky down in 2036 to find he's become a successful business owner and an impassioned advocate for mutant rights. Steve's just as in love with Bucky as he was when he left, but for Bucky it's been a long 18 years. It's hard to accept when Bucky keeps him at arm's length... but Steve's never met a challenge that he didn't take.

    As he gets used to life in 2036 and the flaws in Bucky's idyllic life expose themselves, Steve also has to manage a suspiciously ubiquitous security force, a Brotherhood of Mutants, and old competing loyalties among his aged friends. There's a Bucky in 2018 waiting for him to come home, but if he does that, it means leaving this Bucky behind for a third, unforgivable time. How can he choose?

    What's Bucky not saying?

    How can he face losing everything -- again?

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    “Why can’t it be just you and me, Ma?” Steve asks one night as she is tucking him in.

    She smiles and ruffles his hair.

    “Because,” she says, “there’ll be a time when you’ll find someone who will become so important to you that they will always be a part of your heart. Maybe one person like that, maybe more. They won’t be the only people that you care about, there’ll be more of those because you have a big heart. They will be different in that you’ll always be connected to them.”

    “But are you sure?” Steve asks, still remembering how other people look at him. “What if there’s no one like that for me?”

    She’s completely serious when she looks at him, and he can’t help but believe. “I’m absolutely sure. You’ll meet them, and they will be the dearest people you’ll know. It might not always be easy, but you will always be glad to have them. Just keep an eye out and you’ll find them.”

    ***

    Five people Steve is lucky to find in life. And one he's lucky to find again.
