    Summary

    Karpov makes it four days before curiosity gets the better of him. The Soldier blinks up at him, seemingly oblivious that the source of today’s torture is any different from one before. Ready to comply, he says, and Karpov licks his dry, chapped lips nervously.

    “Who are you?”

    For a moment, he thinks the Soldier does not – cannot? – comprehend the question. “I am no one,” he says at last with another slow blink. “Ready to comply.”

    Karpov orders him back into cryo and puts the book back in its resting spot quickly, carefully, as if to erase any evidence of his indiscretion.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “That right there,” he turns again and finds shockingly pale eyes staring at him from underneath a curtain of tangled hair, “that’s why. I don’t think I knew it at the time. Don’t think I could. But after existing so long like a thing… you kept trying to dredge some amount of humanity out of me. Like you were digging around in there for any hint of a personality, knowing you’d only have to zap it out of me the next time.” Karpov supposes that’s true, though he never really thought through it that way. “You take out a weapon, you fire the weapon, you put the weapon away; you don’t thank the weapon. You don’t ask the weapon what it was before it was forged.”

    Summary

    “No addiction. No catastrophe. And no philosophy, for fuck’s sake. You ever read anything in your life that wasn’t a downer?”

    Steve splays the book facedown across his thigh and rubs a bit of Bucky’s hair between forefinger and thumb. “What would be the fun in that?”

    OR: Steve is deeply depressed; Bucky comes back; Steve continues to be deeply depressed.

    Steve says, “Fair enough,” and trails a finger down the back of Bucky’s neck. He makes his eyes as serious as he knows how, which he’s been told by Natasha is much more serious than anyone has ever needed to make their eyes. He says, “I love him who does not want to have too many virtues.”

    Bucky says, “I never understood your pillowtalk.”

    The lawyer leaned back in her chair. "In all of HYDRA, there has been exactly one person given a full, unconditional pardon for his actions," she said. "I don't see that happening again."

    "Who got that?" Kevin asked, sounding a bit strangled. Nicola was stunned as well. Who did he have to betray? Even if she had anything worth selling, she didn't know if she had that hard core of a betrayer inside of her to give up on everything HYDRA stood for.

    The lawyer gave them both an amused look. "The 'asset' you people call "The Winter Soldier."

    Summary

    Steve and Curtis are switched bodily, in ways that could only be explained by.... Well, neither of them have the answer for that.

    But because of it, Curtis is stuck in Captain America's body, in a world seventeen years earlier, before CW7 went up in the air. His only comfort is a recently rehabilitated Bucky Barnes, who looks at him with equal mixtures of pity, understanding and fear- fear that Steve will never come back.

    Steve wakes up in the train of humanity's last playground, confused and cold and thrust into a plot to take over the train and liberate the men and woman that are treated like scum on a daily basis.

    Neither do very well.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “Is that a place for me?” Bucky asks, folding in on himself a little, like he can’t believe what he’s seeing, like a man who hasn’t had a place in a long time.

    Steve has the good grace to blush furiously and look down.

    It’s Natasha who says, “It is if you want it, Barnes.” She shoves the chair out with her foot, an offering.
