    Summary

    "Welcome to the USO," the director tells Audrey. And with a handshake, she's in.

    Six month she's been in New York, slinging hash in a diner and going to every audition she hears about. Now she's finally got a job dancing. She's ecstatic.

    She's not so sure about working with this Captain America guy, though.

    Or how one showgirl finds out there's more to Captain America than meets the eye.

    Summary

    Bucky drops into the trench. It’s pitchy black, and he’s good; there’s no warning save the displacement of air. Steve is wedged into a sentry stance beneath the earth, on guard and half-awake, when he feels Bucky come in like wind.

    “What’s the secret password?” stage-whispers Steve.

    “It’s ‘fuck off.’” Bucky displaces more air, wending Steve-wards. “Didn’t wanna startle you. Hoped you were gettin’ some sleep. You don’t sleep enough, Steve.”

    “Whose fault is that?” Steve says, smiling under the ground in the dark. “C’mere.”

    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

    Summary

    AU wherein Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes never met, but the Winter Soldier takes an interest in Captain America anyway, and has an odd way of showing it.

    --

    Captain America very obviously does not look at the blown up image of the unfortunate salaryman losing any possibility of children behind him. Twitter has heralded it #DickGate2016. One of the reporters in the crowd is sporting a shirt with the hashtag emblazoned on it in glitter glue.

    What a time to be alive, Amy thinks.
