    Bookmarker's Notes

    Only one photograph of Steve, Peggy, and Bucky standing together exists. Steve saw it at the Smithsonian - in it, the three of them cluster around a map in a briefing room somewhere Steve can’t remember, probably London. Smoke escapes from Bucky’s mouth in a cloud as he reaches out to hand Peggy his cigarette. Peggy is moving to take it with one hand while pointing out something on the map with the other, and Steve is opening his mouth to argue with her. In the background, Jim, Dernier, and Gabe are in the middle of a card game, and Gabe has his head thrown back in laughter. Steve wonders if he could recreate the photograph, only adding in the colors the way he recalls them: Peggy’s red lipstick, the blue of Bucky’s jacket, Jim’s dog tags glinting silver in the yellow electric light.

    The Sokovian Accords were made for people like Steve and Tony, but Wanda is not like them. Wanda was a girl from Sokovia, made into a weapon by HYDRA.

    The Americans don't see her very differently.

    The thought tempts her: she signs it and she becomes a soldier, not a weapon. Or maybe she becomes a weapon, but she becomes a weapon in someone else’s hands - a monster at the end of someone else’s leash. Maybe, she loses her freedom and Sokovia loses itself, nothing more than a footnote in the history of the UN.

    “So what’s the name of this soldier I’m going to risk my life and very well designed plane for?” he asks, giving in. “Whom are we saving?”

    Relief and determination lend a sparkle to Peggy Carter’s eyes that makes him decided on trying at least once more. Yes, he’ll invite her to fondue. If they make back from German controlled air space in one piece.

    “Barnes,” she says. “Sergeant Barnes.”

    "Steve," he said, cutting her off.

    "Is that your name?" she asked him, puzzled.

    "Not me." He shook his head, staring down somewhere past the table. "I'm... not anybody."

    "Someone you love, then?" she ventured.

    "Yes," he replied quietly. "Very much. That was a long time ago too. I shouldn't have said. I... sometimes, I get confused. It's just me now. I was different. But..."

    Summary

    “This is a lovely fantasy,” a voice says. Bucky freezes.

    Alexander Pierce is standing on the other side of the table, hands in his suit pockets.

    "Really, it is," Pierce says. "But you need to wake up now."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    The toes of Pierce’s shoes step into Bucky’s field of vision.

    Pierce has delicately stepped around puddles of Bucky’s blood in those shoes. He’d bathed Bucky’s face before ordering yet another round of beatings. He’d touched Bucky whether Bucky had wanted it or not.

    “What a fucking waste,” Pierce snarls down at him.
