    Summary

    Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.

    So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.


    In 1943, the Howling Commandos wrote goodbye letters to be given to their loved ones in the event of their deaths.

    In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.

    Summary

    The cool leather tingles against his skin as she lays it over his mouth. He struggles against his bonds, squirming away from the sorceress. It’s of little use-– she immobilizes him with her magic. The muzzle fits over him perfectly: it securely fits over his jaw, preventing movement of any kind.

    “And just so we’re clear, Jaskier… No one else will hear your voice again. Not unless I will it,” she tells him, before kissing him over the mask. Then, she rubs her thumbs over his cheeks and smiles. “Your songs belong to me now.”

    Summary

    Later, Geralt learned that the play was four hours long. Four hours long. It didn’t feel like it. Most of it passed by in a fever dream of ominous music, dance-fighting and dryads in gossamer leaves, swinging from hoops attached to the ceiling. Yennefer made an appearance, played by Priscilla in a glittering negligee. She sang a song to Geralt about putting him “Under Her Spell”, and they had a sensual dance number which was made a little strange by a sickened Jaskier (played by Jaskier) coughing loudly in the background. 

    (Jaskier invites Geralt to a musical production inspired by his own life.)

    The first time John Watson sees Sherlock Holmes, he’s just been hit by a car.

    “Bloody fuck,” John says, then looks down at his watch, pops out the winding mechanism, and sets the minute hand back.
