    A truly awesome blend of Vorkosiverse and World of the 5 Gods.

    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."

    Summary

    He wanders into a clearing, the same one where he stood, almost three months ago, watching the Quinjet while waiting for Steve to come running to him. It was the start of something…educational. It’s one thing to take Steve as he is, another to love it the way Bucky did. He has no regrets. He’s been worse things than a monster-fucker.

    The internet has words for everything. He likes that.

    He makes it unmolested to the edge of the clearing. The moon is full and bright overhead, thin clouds drifting across half of her. Bucky stares, mesmerized, and finds that he can’t look away. He was never one to be entranced by the night sky. He was a city boy at first, and then the war sucked him dry, the only good things in Bucky’s head the memory of the blue-eyed boy he left behind.

    They took that too, in the end.

    He has it back, and he has the moon to thank for it, in the strangest ways. Maybe that’s why he can’t look away. It feels silly to murmur gratitude at what’s essentially a sphere of rock glowing with borrowed light. Bucky does it anyway.

    Twigs snap behind him. A deep growl makes the air tremble.

    Bucky’s not wearing red, but he’s got a big, bad wolf on his tail.

    Summary

    Bucky didn't want much. Just to keep his head down, to sell his scavenged flowers in peace, and to stay off Shield's radar. His life would have been a lot easier if his flowers weren't dead and if being a necromancer wasn't illegal, but easy or not, he was getting by. Steve didn't want much, either. He was happy working for Shield, he had good friends, and overall his life was going just about the way he wanted it. Problem was, being happy with your life was generally an invitation for fate to throw a spanner in the works—and in Steve's specific case, it was going to be a spanner named Bucky.

    (A love story about flowers, trust, and magic and the choices we make about doing what's right.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is, without a doubt, one of the most creative, funny, tragic, and beautiful stories it has ever been my pleasure to read. The characterizations are amazing. The worldbuilding is awesome. The plotting is extraordinary. Wow. Just. Wow. Even the OCs are charming and funny as hell.
