    Summary

    He stumbles upon an article on the internet that talks about "the illusion of danger" and "fantasies of consensual ravishment or agreed-to aggression" and "willing, or empowered, submission or surrender". The article says things like it’s the wish to be beyond will, beyond thought. It claims that ultimately, choosing to forfeit control may not be to lose it … but to powerfully assert it.

    Steve doesn't know what to think about the article. He bookmarks it just in case.

    (In which Steve has dirtybadwrong fantasies.)

    Summary

    'You're a wizard, Harry' is easier to hear from a half-giant when you're eleven, rather than from some kids on a tube platform when you're seventeen and late for work.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself. 

    Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

    It's enough.
