    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

    The spare key is under the mat, just like Poots said it would be. Hefting his carefully-curated care package under one arm, Jack wrestles with the key in the lock before tucking it safely back into its hiding spot. He shuts the door quickly behind himself, and is toeing out of his shoes when a voice echoes out from somewhere.

    “Sweetheart, you’re home!”


    Jack Zimmermann is an established hockey player. He’s three years in to his NHL career, has had the A for the Falconers for two and a half, and is ready to make winners out of the new group of rookies. He pulls one under his wing, affectionately nicknamed Poots, and it should all go as planned. But say Jack accidentally discovers that Poots has a boyfriend. And say that Poots wasn’t a very good boyfriend. And say, for arguments’ sake, Poots’ boyfriend definitely deserved better.

    Jack is maybe, possibly, totally fucked.

    Summary

    Bucky’s a block and a half away when he sees Steve — and it’s unmistakably Steve, all narrow shoulders and flailing fists and the 13-year-old adolescent rage he carries with him like a Roman banner — starting a fight with the O’Reilly brothers on the boardwalk along the East River. He speeds up his steps when he sees Steve land a solid first strike on Wally and get a fist to the mouth in payback. He breaks into a jog when Eddie grabs ahold of Steve’s arm, twisting it behind his back as he struggles, giving Wally the opportunity to land another hit to Steve’s face.

    He starts to run, to sprint, when Steve pulls away from Eddie, over-balances, and tips head-first over the curb and into the water ten feet below.
