    Summary

    Natalia Romanova is eight years old and ‘the best the Red Room has ever seen’ when she’s pulled out of one lesson by some handlers she’s never interacted with before. They say nothing but her name, take her away from the training rooms, still dressed in her ballet gear, and down the long twisting corridors to Dreykov’s office. She’s been in the Red Room long enough to know the punishments for showing fear, but still her heart speeds up as they open the doors, usher her in and point to a chair.

    Summary

    Hydra thinks they have wiped every trace of Bucky Barnes from the Winter Soldier.

    They're wrong.

    When he is the Winter Soldier, Bucky Barnes works with a lot of people. And, one by one, each person chips away at a little of the cold mask of the Winter Soldier, setting free a piece of the person he was before.

    Or, a deep dive into the Winter Soldier's partners over the years - Melina Vostokoff, Alexei Shostakov, Natasha Romanoff, Yelena Belova and Ava Starr.

    Summary

    Falling for her fake husband was never part of the plan. Then Alexei gets sick... and Melina lets her defenses down.

    “Will these help?” She proffers the bottle of medicine, and Alexei reaches for it. His hand ghosts over the bottle, and Melina pulls it away.

    “Wait,” she instructs him, then gets up to go get a glass of water from the bathroom and to wet a washcloth with some cool water. “How many?” she asks when she returns, sitting on the edge of the bed.

    He shrugs. “Ten?”

    Melina dutifully counts them out and hands them over, and Alexei swallows them in two gulps, wincing.

    “Didn’t they give you… I don’t know, super-soldier pills?” Melina asks, and Alexei just looks at her, eyes hollow. Melina feels like she can see every hit he’s ever taken in that gaze, every time he’s gone down and gotten right back up.

    “They didn’t give me shit,” Alexei grunts.

    Summary

    "She knows they don’t deserve this, not Natasha, not Yelena. They deserve to grow up like the other children on the block, to ride their bicycles down the street without a care in the world, go to sleepovers with their classmates where they stay up late talking about crushes, and have the choice to go to college, get married, and have children of their own.

    They deserve all the world has to offer.

    But it is not hers to give."

    ***

    As the North Institute goes up in flames, Melina realizes her life in Ohio is burning down around her.
