    Summary

    What if... the Asset was sent on a mission to New Mexico, weeks before Steve was found? What if... Darcy didn't follow Jane to England, but pursued her interest in a different kind of "science"? What if... our plucky lovebirds met up in the most unlikely of coincidences, and decided to team up, for the most unlikely of road trips?

    Lots of things could happen, in theory. After all, in a post-Thor world, anything is possible... right?

    Summary

    Darcy Lewis is a contradictory force created from cleverness, a lack of hesitation, shitty humor, and a partially problematic love for kitschy crafts. She was somewhat lost on her long road of life, like any chaotic force scrambling to find an outlet, and tried to pick something for a college major so she could get her life going in some sensible direction. Her mother always did say that plans saved lives, Darcy recalls, as if the sixty-five year old housewife was the reincarnation of Captain America and that wholesome, outdated propaganda would somehow persuade her into becoming a functional person.

    Of course, even the best laid plans often go awry, and it’s no different for Darcy. Norse gods are real, SHIELD is surprisingly intimidated by her computer skills, cyborgs are extremely depressing creatures, and the path to discovering herself is littered with dangerous obstacles.

    (In which sexuality and gender are hard to figure out, real people make a lot of mistakes, and being friends with troubled superheroes isn’t all it’s cracked up to be)

    Summary

    After SHIELD’s collapse, Steve comes back in New York. Without a war or crisis, he’s struggling to find his place in the world again. There’s time to relearn his city and time to wonder what he’s doing here.

    When a mysterious guy hits on him on the subway, it’s a welcome interruption. Something resonates between the two of them, a connection neither of them try to deny. The trouble is that Barnes disappeared three years ago, and the more Steve learns, the more he wants to know.

    But Barnes disappeared for a reason. 

    Sam rolls his eyes. “Yes, Steve, you could have a lead on a three year old mystery because you’re just that good, not because a random hipster flirted with you.”

    “Well, when you put it that way,” Steve says.

    Summary

    Bucky woke up with a headache, a mouth that tasted like something had died in it, and hands-down, swear-to-god, the most beautiful man he had ever seen asleep in his lap.

    Bucky was also, he realized after a moment, strapped down to a hospital bed with about six different monitors making unsynced, equally piercing, beeps. Beyond that he couldn’t quite see—there was a hideous floral curtain pulled around the bed, and while he could just make out figures moving in the room beyond it, the pattern made his head pound even worse the longer he looked at it.

    So. That was concerning.
