  1. Summary

    I've done my best to make this self-contained and it should mostly stand-alone without ever seeing the original miniseries. If that missed the mark, give me a holler about your confusion and I'll see what I can do to fix that.

    This story begins with the arrival of the Visitors, as seen by the original character Kimberly Winthrop. While she will eventually interact with several of the characters known to V fans, she will also interact with many new individuals, especially members of the Fifth Column. The original miniseries is treated as canon, while some material from V: The Final Battle is "adjusted" to suit my own tastes. The weekly series is blatantly ignored or "repaired" to give me the story I wish we had seen on screen. For example, Elizabeth is an unusual, gifted child, but not a walking special-effects factory.

    While I have attempted to be gentle and restrained in the handling of delicate or distasteful topics, this story does deal with many of the issues raised in the books and miniseries. Some of these subjects include the issues of warfare with its inherent violence, relationships between adults, prisoner torture, and cannibalism. This material is NOT suitable for children.

    Summary

    One day at a time.

    He has to remind himself that recovery isn't linear. Having lifelines and friends helps, but... living a normal life? Blending in with civilians? Some days it works, some days it doesn't.

    Finally free from HYDRA and living under the radar, the world's longest-serving POW does his best to reconcile who he was, who he is, and who the world expects him to be.

    Trigger warnings in the tags, some parts of this fic can get pretty intense, will tag chapters/sections when appropriate. Smut-free.

    Updates on Saturdays.

    Summary

    Season after season passed and Steve didn't see a single human, only the animals and the birds and the plants and the lake, until the day the man with the silver arm appeared, stripped naked, and waded into the lake. For the first time in a long time Steve left his oak-self to crouch hidden in the bushes, watching him.

    The man was beautiful, Steve had never seen a human who was so much like an oak, he hadn't thought it was possible, and he wanted to run his fingers over the man's skin, see if he felt as strong as he looked, see if his skin was smooth or rough. He wanted to touch his hair, find out if it was soft. He wanted to touch the silver arm, to discover what it was. It looked like metal, but he didn't see how that was possible. 

    In which Steve is something like a dryad, Bucky's not the Winter Soldier anymore but he's not quite sure he's Bucky, and together they discover that some choices are worth making.
