  1. Summary

    You're a dancer with a small-time ballet company in New York, following your dreams and avoiding thinking about the heart defect that left you with a chest scar that still makes you self-conscious. Then Clint, one of your father's former SHIELD trainees, introduces you to James Barnes, the former Winter Soldier.

    You and James should have nothing in common, but he's understanding and wonderful to a fault and it's no wonder you fall in love with him. But then, just as things are wonderful and you feel like you're on top of the world, an old medical crisis rears its ugly head...
