    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.

    Summary

    “It refers to the test subjects as volunteers,” Natasha said. “If I were guessing, I’d say these were at-risk youth, runaways, orphans maybe. Mix economic hardship with national pride and a need to belong somewhere...and you’ve got a textbook candidate for terrorist recruitment. Not sure how else Hydra could convince them to be experimented on like this. It’s a little crazy.”

    “Well,” Steve said, scrubbing a hand over his stubbled face, “When you put it that way…”

    Summary

    “I can’t feel my face,” Steve shivers.

    “I can’t feel my left arm,” Bucky says, deadpan. Steve barks out a laugh. It’s all white puffs of vapor in the chilly air.

    “This the spot?”

    “Nah,” Bucky pants, breath ragged from the long ascent up a mountain. “Almost there.”

    Summary

    Sam Wilson's fugitive life, post-Accords: taking refuge in a kingdom that might as well have been magical, in a sprawling palace set against beautiful mountains and jungles, where there was a handsome man cursed and trapped in a deathly sleep in a glass coffin, and a kind and just king who was working to heal him, and a stalwart warrior from a far-off time who wouldn't leave his cursed friend, and, hell, Sam even knew a witch. Surely Sam could be forgiven if his thoughts turned to fairy tales and Disney movies.

    Bucky's kind of like a Disney princess. Sam would maybe like to be Prince Charming.

    Summary

    She was only here for a long weekend, using this convention as an excuse to see Alice for the first time in over a year, or using Alice as an excuse to get away for a convention, or using both as a reason to finally take a vacation, because it was about damn time.

    At least, that was the original plan.
