    Summary

    Set post-Captain America: the Winter Soldier. Steve's been lost since they thawed him out. When he discovers Peggy Carter is still alive, he's even more lost. Sometimes reuniting with the love of your life isn't happily ever after. Sometimes, it's the very beginning of the hardest thing you've ever done.

    ((or, that one fic where Bucky's medical records are missing. Tony thinks Fury's growing super soldiers. Fury thinks Steve has an illegitimate daughter. Natasha knows a lot more than she's saying. And everyone's afraid of Peggy.))

    Numerous flashbacks to the Captain America and Agent Carter timelines.

    Summary

    In the time before the ocean's rise, before men left their hiding places and stretched out across the earth, taming rivers and forests and all in their path, there lived a half-orc boy named Steve. All his childhood, Steve was told by the people of his town that he was born of a forced union between his orc father and his human mother. But Steve knew the truth. He remembered late night visits and secret weekends away together, where his father would play pat-pat with him and dance with his mother in front of the fire. Steve knew the truth: he had been born of love.

    Cast out of his human village, Steve will seek out his father only to find that love can be true but tainted as a mysterious warrior named Bucky exposes the terrible secret of the orcling army. This is the story of how Steve found his way in the world and discovered the cost of love and the loneliness of sacrifice.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I finished this after days of obsessive reading, and immediately burst into tears. Absolutely recommend, even if you aren’t a fan of war epics or memoirs.
