    Bookmarker's Notes

    Then he goes in for the kill: his lip quivers and he sniffs mournfully. 'Is this was a joke for you,' he says, in a tone of voice he should probably reserve for people who stomp on puppies, 'it was very cruel.'

    There's silence. Steve thinks the best way to finish this would be for a single manly tear to roll down his cheek or something. Maybe he should teach himself to cry on command. It could be useful in the field.

    Still, everyone looks shamefaced and completely crushed. Serves them right.

    Which, of course, is when the bedroom door opens and Bucky walks out, barefoot and trying to muffle a yawn, wearing nothing but a pair of jeans that cling to him by a thread. There's a very unmistakable trail of hickeys running up his neck. He squints at the Avengers dubiously, and when he passes Steve he snaps the waistband of his boxers. Steve laughs and, smirking, lets his eyes trail after Bucky; those jeans are pretty mindblowing.

    He turns back to the speechless and gawking Avengers.

    'You,' Bruce chokes out, pointing an accusing finger. 'That's — oh my god. You just played us. You lying liar. Captain America can't lie!'

    'There's a lot you probably think Captain America can't do,' Bucky calls from the kitchen.

    'I actually started to pity you,' says Tony. He winces, and clutches at the reactor in his chest. 'What is this feeling? What's happening?'

    Steve sighs. 'It's called guilt, Tony.'

    Tony gasps in horror. 'You monster.'

    Summary

    In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering.

    Or: the story of the year Bucky Barnes finally learned how to talk to at least one other human being, discovered J. D. Salinger, started to try in school (kind of), got a haircut, landed a punch, almost got arrested, and kissed a boy on the mouth.

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.

    Summary

    Barnes is now glaring at him for some reason. It's somewhat terrifying but also, oddly, a little reassuring— because that's emotion right there, which means there's still somebody behind those eyes. Somebody who seems to think Sam is being a bit slow on the uptake. "Time parameters exceeded. Mission failed."

    "Wait." Sam narrows his eyes. "Is this some kind of... report? Debriefing?"

    "Mission report," confirms Barnes, looking pleased. Well, looking slightly less murderous than before.

    In which various people deal with things they never signed up for, but at the end of the day no one's particularly surprised.

    Summary

    According to Cosette, the café is only a few blocks away from his internship at the embassy. According to Cosette, the coffee is all fair trade, and the to-go cups are recycled, and her boss is really nice. According to Cosette all of the business protocols and hiring practices are entirely nondiscriminatory...

    Apparently, nondiscriminatory hiring practices mean that they only hire ruggedly beautiful men with messes of black hair and the biggest blue eyes that Enjolras has ever seen.

    *

    Or Enjolras goes to a cafe to support Cosette and her new job, and inadvertently falls for a barista named R.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “I heard you tell Cosette you hadn’t eaten yet, and I wanted to make it up to you.” As if on cue, a pitiful rumble comes from Grantaire’s stomach, but he’s looking at Enjolras and his smile is only a little hesitant. “Thanks.”

    Cosette appears from behind Grantaire, holding the woman’s now finished drink. “Both of you go and sit down. I saved the table Enjolras was at because while some people had doubts, I had more faith.”

    “Cosette, the people –“

    “The people will not die and never come back because they had to wait in line for five minutes. Go and eat the food that my stupid brother brought for you.”

    The two obediently sit down. Enjolras tells Grantaire how much he liked his macaroons, tells him about his grandmother’s cursing in French over the cookies, and then listens to Grantaire talk about almond flour and egg whites for twenty-five minutes. When he finally does go back to work, Cosette comes over to wipe down the neighboring table.

    “Could you two be a little more obvious?” She hisses. “I don’t think the entire country knows that you’re pining.”

    “Cossette . . .” and then Enjolras pauses. He glances toward the counter to make sure Grantaire is deep in the territory of milk frothing and won’t be able to hear him. “Cosette, I really like him.”

    “Yeah, I know,” She smiles kindly at him. “It’s sort of adorable and painful to watch. When will you guys be official?”

    “I don’t know . . . I don’t know if he likes me back.”

    The supportive smile drops off of Cosette’s face like he personally slapped it off. “Jesus Christ.”

    Summary

    Boyd wears myth like he wears his suit, flat against his skin, just-right, sharp at his wrists and too-tight about his neck, the ghost of a dog-collar everyone can see but that same everyone is too afraid to mention. He died on Ava’s floor, under Raylan’s hands, as he will die again one day, blood flowing from him like a river, returning to Harlan’s hungry earth. He will die and he will die, and be born again until the time he isn’t, until the last of his nine lives is gone. The truth is that he was born to die, like every one of Harlan’s sons, born to become the myth he wears like a weapon, and he will die as many times as Harlan requires him to, until he becomes immortal in the death that waits for him, down in the mine where he failed to die the first time.

    Summary

    “It’s Mister Stilinski,” Stiles repeats. “That- uh. There’s a mistake. On the paperwork. It’s Mister.” That was all it was. Just a mistake on the paperwork. On the school records and his birth certificate and his social security card. On all the paperwork. But still, just a mistake. That’s what his therapists said. His cells had made a little mistake but it isn’t disgusting or wrong or sick. He isn’t a mistake. Just the papers. His body.
