    That's his job, isn't it?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Sometimes it takes drastic measures to make Captain America set aside the uniform and allow himself to be Steve Rogers, not a team leader but a man amongst his friends.

    Summary

    They’re nursing the first round of beers when Clint says, “Whoa,” in an awed tone. When Steve turns to face him, Clint’s got almost comically large eyes which seem to be darting between Steve, Natasha, and something over Steve’s shoulder. “Is that Lewis with Henry from Accounting?”

    Sure enough, when Steve darts a look, trying for casual enough that if Darcy catches him looking it won’t appear like he’s creepily staring at her, she is, indeed, sitting next to Henry, her eyes focused on his face as he tells her a story that involves a lot of hand gestures. Darcy laughs suddenly and brings her bottle of beer to lips. Steve tries not to stare at her mouth and fails miserably.

    He and Darcy haven’t crossed paths many times over the last few months that she’s been working at the tower on various projects with Stark or SHIELD, but she reminds him a bit of the girls that used to run the show in his old neighbourhood, used to wear bright red lipstick and let the wind toss their skirts up high enough that the married, church-going women would toss them a dirty, judgemental look before corralling their children or husbands into their homes.

    --

    Darcy has a type, and it's more Steve 1942 than Steve 2014.

    They memorize Walt Whitman to keep their minds off the hollow ache in their hungry bellies or the rattle in Steve's chest.

    Summary

    The Losers finally have a good, solid lead on Max. Their intel indicates that he's traveling from Europe to New York on a heavily guarded private flight. Luckily, the Losers know how to deal with guards, and it's child's play to take out the security. Too bad the lead was actually a false trail from Max, and instead of the man who ruined their lives, the Losers have just kidnapped a young woman named Darcy Lewis, who has never even heard of Max.

    Even worse, the reason Darcy rated a security detail as she traveled is that she's a close personal friend of the Avengers, a superhero team backed by a shady government agency called SHIELD.

    Darcy’s accidental kidnapping at the hands of the Losers may actually be a good thing. Sorta.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Darcy is supposed to be the secretary to heroes, not a hero herself.
