    Summary

    “CHORUS: Brave girl.
    KASSANDRA: People never say that to a lucky person, do they?”
    -"Agamemnon", Aeschylus (trans. Anne Carson)

    -

    Steve’s always wanted to see Madrid: to have the chance to wander through Retiro Park; to explore the Museo del Prado and the Royal Palace and the Reina Sofía; maybe to light a candle at the Almudena Cathedral; to drink wine and eat tapas at all hours of the night and go dancing until the sun comes up, just once or twice.

    Never in his entire life had he expected it might happen this way, though: a terrible memory ground into his brain; a scar the size of his fist knotted over his shoulder; his friends convinced he’s dead; his hair dyed dark; and a bodyguard next to him that’s pretending to be his new husband.

    Summary

    Bullies had mocked Steve's lack of magic for years, emboldened as Steve cast spell after spell that fizzled and died.

    Steve didn't believe a word out of Bucky's mouth when he said that Steve was the most powerful witch he'd ever seen, but at least Bucky had until they reached Bonding age to convince him of the truth.

    Summary

    “I heard rumour that William Fly is swinging from a gibbet in Boston harbour. They say the age of piracy is ending,” Steve utters softly, rubbing the tip of his thumb across his lower lip.
    Sam glances at him. “You got plans to retire, Cap? Find a nice little beach in the Indies and a good supply of rum? Couple of pretty girls in grass skirts to dance for you.”
    “Sam,” Steve mumbles, covering his face with his hand.
    “I’m sorry, a couple of pretty boys?” Sam grins wickedly.
    “Sam!” Steve looks scandalised, which gets him nothing but laughter from his Quartermaster. “You’re fired. Go throw yourself overboard this instant.”

    Summary

    It started out simple enough: A fantastic one-night-stand between the outright tea heathen, Bucky Barnes, and the absolute coffee snob, Steve Rogers.

    And it would have stayed simple, if neither of these two idiots had found out about their mutual hatred of the other’s choice in caffeinated beverages. But when are things with Steve and Bucky are ever that simple?

    This may not be the first thing they teach him, but it is the first thing he learns.
