    Summary

    The printer is whirring when he steps inside the lab; when he glances at it, the paper is headed with Dear Evan Hansen so he snatches it up.
    Evan Hansen is hunched at one of the computer desks, logging out of his google docs account and chewing on his thumbnail. Connor watches him for a moment, struggling for something to say, and then blurts out, “So what happened to your arm?”

     

    Connor Murphy doesn't kill himself. There's an overdose of pills that doesn't get taken, help that finally gets offered, and friendships formed through group chats and unlikely circumstances. And everyone learns to live for the moments that are full of a little bit of light.

    Summary

    “Time isn’t the same once you’re dead,” Connor says. “It’s more like a Ghost of Christmas Past type thing. I’m here to, like, show you what could have been and what will be, you know?”

    Evan does not know.

    “I’m Jewish,” he says. “Or- I mean, technically I guess I’m probably agnostic but I’m culturally Jewish-”

    “Don’t care,” says Connor. “God is fake. I’m dead and there’s nothing here.”

    The Ghost of Connor Murphy has a pink rubber SuperBall and Evan has the chance to fix things. He just has to keep Connor from dying. It shouldn't be as difficult as it is.

    Summary

    In 1938, there's a bar in Brooklyn called Sully’s where people are safe to be themselves. Behind the bar, a girl pours drinks. She's always got a big smile for Steve and she says queer like it's a good thing. On a regular basis, she takes his shoulders in her hands and tries to shake sense into him, saying, "When will you do something about that best friend of yours?"

    In 2012, Bucky’s gone, but Steve’s not, and the girl’s hands are too old to shake him. She does her best to make him see sense anyway.

    Steve had people who loved him before the war, and it turns out a few of them are still around when he finally comes home.

    Summary

    When the Statue of Liberty slides into view, the whole ship roars. It’s deafening. Bucky throws his fist in the air and yells along with everyone else. His heart is in his throat. The Statue of goddamn Liberty. Bucky wants to climb up her robe and kiss her sour green face.

    The cheers rise up again as they go by her, and then die back down; most of the guys are just happy to sit and smile and watch the city float lazily into focus. They know they’ve got days more of barracks and bunks and cheap train seats before they’ll get to see their families in Pittsburgh, or Columbus, or Chicago. But Bucky’s home, he can see Brooklyn, and he laughs and shades his eyes from the sun and feels crazy with happiness, and this has to be the slowest fucking boat in the world, but at least he has a good view while he dies of impatience.

    ------

    In 1945, Bucky comes home from the war.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    There aren't many AU stories where Steve never became Cap and Bucky still survives, much less gets to come home. But then again, if that means we get this story to fill that gap, I'm down.

    Probably my most-read story out of the entire Big Bang 2017. I keep coming back to it. You should, too.
