    Summary

    When Natasha finally got into the Kirov ballet in St. Petersburg, she thought she would finally have the normal life she wanted. Then the american arrived, and all of her secrets came crawling back for her.

    or

    "James was the only male allowed into the program who was not Russian by birth or blood, the first foreign dancer in its history, in fact, and that had ruffled more than a few feathers among the school’s students and faculty. But the Dean of Admissions, Pavel Agapov, was adamant that the school accept the American and ultimately his persistence won out. James Buchannan Barnes was officially a member of the Kirov Ballet, home at the Mariinsky Theatre.
    In the early days Natalia did not see much of him, as she was in charge of the school’s experimental children’s program. When she wasn’t teaching six- and seven-year-olds how to dance she was in training with the other dancers who actually worked for the school instead of- or while- studying there. There were few lines between student, faculty, and troupe, and many were at least two of the three. In this way the school survived, and Natalia took little note of the American.
    Until she saw him dance."

    Summary

    Steve Rogers is a struggling artist. It's not as romantic as it sounds.

    What Steve really wants is a job as a session musician. He can play enough instruments that he could make a decent amount of money doing it, but in New York there are just too many talented musicians and not enough jobs to go around. So he takes jobs in hipster bars, hotel lobbies, at weddings and bar mitzvahs and office parties.

    If he gets one more request for Let it Go, he swears he'll find it within himself to punch a child.

    He lives in a tiny, shitty apartment with Sam, who was his sort-of-boyfriend for a few weeks until he decided Steve's very domestic relationship goals weren't for him. They're still pretty much best friends, luckily for Steve, because when the regular pianist at Sam's dance company runs away to Canada he's recommended his roommate and got him the job before Steve even knows about it.

    Dancers. Steve's going to have to spend his days with dancers. Great.
