    It hurts even to think about how careful Bucky had been, hiding himself so much of the time only to die young and leave no trace upon the earth except the longing in Steve’s head and a gravestone over an empty grave.

    Summary

    Steve asked Sam for a movie recommendation. He suggested Titanic. He meant it as a joke. He was sure Steve knew what the movie was about already. It happened in the damned 1910s after all.

    I wanted to see her get saved. And she was.”

    “Not all of her,” Steve said quietly. “She left a part of herself behind.”

    “But she got saved,” Bucky argued gently, his lips quirking up in a sad smile. “That's all I wanted. At least for one of them to make it out.”

    “But where do I start?” Bucky asks.

    Steve pauses.

    “Back at the beginning, I guess.”

    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.

    Summary

    Bookmarker's Notes

    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.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “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.”
