    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

    Like most stories about Bucky Barnes and his questionable and sometimes terrible life choices, this one starts because he decides not to listen to Natasha’s cryptic and mostly annoying advice.

    He decides not to listen, and he hunts down and kills a deer during that month’s full moon run with his pack and leaves its dead body on Steve Rogers’s front step

    Steve, the man Bucky kind-of-possibly-maybe-absolutely is in love with. 

    Bucky would try to smother himself after that one, but he’s learned that werewolves are hard to kill.

    Summary

    The first thing Steve's aware of when the lights finally dim and he can open his eyes again is that, even though he's breathing incredibly hard, there's no accompanying tightness in his chest, no whistle in his windpipe. For the first time in his life, he's breathing hard without being on the cusp of an asthma attack.

     

    The second thing he's aware of, as the pod opens up and he can actually look down at himself, is that his body hasn't changed one bit. "Damn," he swears, still trying to catch his breath. "Guess I won't be winning any modeling competitions."

     

    Howard Stark looks like he's seen a ghost. "This," he says, "this, uhh, this wasn't supposed to happen."

    Summary

    He pulls on the dress and smooths out the fabric, enjoying the way the skirt flares when he shifts and gives an experimental turn, the lovely medium blue tones of the pattern. He always felt he looked best in blue, whether he was being Bucky’s wife or Captain America.
