  3. Summary

    The Blood-Dimmed Tide

    A world without Captain America is the world he was made to prevent—a world in which HYDRA rises to menace every nation, Russia withdraws and swells to superpower status, and America struggles to survive. Much of Europe is cast back almost into the Dark Ages, China closes her borders and lurks like a sleeping giant, India and Africa roil with the last throes of colonialism as they lurch toward their full potential.

    And what of Captain America? In the hands of the Russians, he is reshaped into the second Winter Soldier and the children of the Red Room are a constant menace in the service of the Motherland. But they, like so many others, are often hard-pressed to simply hold back HYDRA's threats.

    By 2014, HYDRA has brought war all the way to America's own shores, corroding her from inside as it assaults her from above. America's great cities, including Manhattan, are scarred by battle. SHIELD has been all but shattered. And the heroes that remain are almost without hope—but they continue to fight. The loss of one of their great minds, the scientist Hank Pym, comes with some small consolation... the revelation that Captain America might not be lost to them after all.

    Summary

    I scowled, annoyed as usual by Holmes's intrusion on my privacy. I was afraid that some day he might read something more telling, something more dangerous, and that in uncovering the truth he would ruin our intimate friendship for good. "I’m not exactly feeling up to scratch this morning, Holmes."

    "And yet your eyebrows continue their semaphore."

     
    Christmas Eve day. Come mid-morning, Holmes and Watson find themselves with three gifts, two cases, and one mild hangover. If they're lucky, they won't be additionally burdened with a partridge in a pear tree—though with the direction everything is heading, Watson wouldn't bet against it.

    Summary

    "Steve isn't fragile, no matter what her colleagues say; he's just small. And the feeling of his angular limbs, the way his collarbones poke up against his skin, the slender leg that hooks around hers, all of it arouses a fierce possessiveness in her."

    Summary

    "When he finally was able to put Steve down on a bed in the infirmary, the stolen hotel blankets fell away from Steve's body. Sam barely managed to hold back a gasp. There was no muscle definition to speak of anymore."

    HYDRA is still wreaking havoc, SHIELD is still in tatters, Bucky is still in the wind, and now Steve can barely so much as lift his iconic shield. And if that weren't enough of a mess, he and Sam are starting to realize that what they feel for each other goes way beyond just friendship.
