    Summary

    “I can’t keep calling you Maybe-Maybe-Not A Closet Monster in my head. Give a guy a hand here.”

    The Maybe Kind Of Attractive, Maybe Also A Monster That Could Eat Him seems to consider this for a moment, and then says “Buchanan,” in the manner that someone might say ‘Sure, I’ll go swimming in that vat of acid, sounds great.’

    “Like the president?”

    “Sure?”

    “Great,” Steve says, “That’s great. Well, if you’re not gonna eat me or anything I’ve got like two hours to finish a paper that’s only half done, so I’m just gonna go ahead and do that?”

     

    Aka sometimes the magical thing you find in your closet is a whole lot less Narnia and a whole lot more Suspiciously Attractive Closet Monster.

    Summary

    “No.” Steve says as his eyes fall upon the very soul that stole Steve’s yarn, the man who has now upset Steve from his spot as a first place winner, standing next to the pieces that beat Steve’s. “It was him.” He says, raising one accusing finger to point in the direction of James Buchanan Barnes, now a thief of both yarn and dignity.

     

    In which Bucky is Steve's knitting nemesis and very little actual knitting occurs.

    Summary

    Natasha joins Steve on the couch and proceeds to squeeze her way right into Steve’s space so that she can read the letter. “Love letters, Rogers? Y’know, despite the whole star crossed lovers thing I didn’t expect you two to be so damn romantic.”

    “Why? Because we’re from the 40s?”

    “No, because you would literally rather jump out of a plane without a parachute than talk about your love life. Believe it or not, it’s possible people might make assumptions based on that kind of behavior.”

    “Speaking of, do you see any planes around so that I can get out of this conversation?”

     

    In which Bucky doesn't come back right away, but that doesn't stop him from leaving Steve love letters.

    Summary

    “I’m two hundred and sixty three years old,” Bucky says, on a breath. He closes his eyes, and keeps talking. “I don’t have to breathe, I don’t have to sleep, and my heart doesn’t beat. I don’t get sick, nor do I age.” Bucky opens his eyes, and they meet Steve’s hard enough to pin him to his seat. “What do you think I am?”

    Steve’s mind is reeling. He knows what it sounds like Bucky is, but...but it can’t be true. Such creatures do not exist. Have never existed. They are simply not possible.

    “Go ahead,” Bucky says, with the air of someone who has all day, and doesn’t mind waiting. “I know you know.”

    Summary

    “…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook…

    ...Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been."

    Franklin, Hannah. “Howling Commandos Leave their Mark in Portrait Series by Captain America.” Newsweek, July 9, 2009.
