    Summary

    On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself. 

    Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

    It's enough.

    Summary

    Teddy’s brows were knit together. He looked so adorably flustered, and he was Billy’s boyfriend. The word was like a key turning a locked door inside him, releasing years of frustrated yearning he'd bottled up as he'd watched people his age pair up, break it off, find pieces of themselves in someone else, and someone else, and…

    God, he’d been so jealous. All these years, he’d wanted that too.

    Summary

    Eve was not the best person in the world. Sometimes she didn’t hold the elevator open when she saw people rushing to catch it from the other side of the lobby. Cutting the line at Starbucks was a semi-regular action.

    But Eve did not deserve to be Neil fucking Josten's publicist.

    **********

    Or, the one where Neil does what he wants, picks fights with reporters, discovers Twitter, breaks the internet, and really shouldn't be allowed out of his house.

    Andrew does nothing to discourage him.
