    Summary

    “So,” says Bruce, unfolding his hands to set them palms-down on the tabletop. He’s not clenching his fists, which is good, but his voice is disturbingly even and devoid of all emotion — which is so, so bad. “Are we going to talk about the shark?”

    Natasha, filing her nails on Tony’s other side, waits the perfect amount of time to ask, “What shark?”

    At the same time, Clint says definitively, “No we are not.”

    Bruce sighs.
    --

    Sam, Clint, and Bucky steal a shark. That's it. That's the whole story.

    Summary

    We are dominated by Journalism. […] The tyranny that it proposes to exercise over people’s private lives seems to me to be quite extraordinary. The fact is, that the public have an insatiable curiosity to know everything, except what is worth knowing. ~ Oscar Wilde

    When an accidental meeting between two strangers is blown way out of proportions Darcy Lewis finds herself in the middle of a media onslaught that proclaims her to be “Captain America’s super cute ordinary lady love”. The problem however: She barely knows the man and what she sees of him doesn’t really leave her with a favourable opinion. So while the press quickly finds the perfect couple nickname for them and has them practically married in seven different ways till Sunday, she’s still trying not the slap the guy. But still, their epic love story is all over the papers, and what’s in the papers must be true, right?

    Summary

    Bucky woke up with a headache, a mouth that tasted like something had died in it, and hands-down, swear-to-god, the most beautiful man he had ever seen asleep in his lap.

    Bucky was also, he realized after a moment, strapped down to a hospital bed with about six different monitors making unsynced, equally piercing, beeps. Beyond that he couldn’t quite see—there was a hideous floral curtain pulled around the bed, and while he could just make out figures moving in the room beyond it, the pattern made his head pound even worse the longer he looked at it.

    So. That was concerning.

    Summary

    “Steve,” Peggy says when she reaches him with quick, steady steps, her- husband and friend? friends? partners? following behind at a more sedate pace.

    “Uh,” Steve says, and “Hi?” and “Would you mind telling me what the date is?”

     

    1951. Steve aimed for home and ended up in fucking 1951.

    Jesus christ.

     

    ---

    In which Steve not showing up on the time pad wasn't exactly on purpose and we ignore 95% of that ending.
