    Summary

    What harm will it do?

     

    “Steve.” Bucky says his name like it’s a revelation. A grin spreads over his face, and he shuts the door, locking it before tossing his keys towards the small kitchen table--and misses. He comes straight at Steve, crossing the room in no time at all because their apartment is smaller than a breadbox--or at least that’s what Bucky always says, cursing every time he stubs his toe on something.

    Steve watches him approach, glad he’s already sitting down because when Bucky looks at him like that his knees go weak. And when he leans in close, hands on the back of the couch on either side of Steve’s head, he forgets how to breathe. “You’re back pretty late. The dancin’ musta been good, huh?”

    “Marry me.”

    Summary

    Bucky sometimes caught himself thinking, about the war: is all of this happening because old men saw the raw life in young men and wanted to squelch it? It was the same thing he had thought in school. Running track. When he had worked in the crew building the World’s Fair Railroad. And especially when he got his draft letter: they want to crush us like a piece of tin on train tracks.

    Begins at Kreischberg prison camp, continues after the rescue.

    Lots of angst. Lots of literary references, foreshadowing, and symbolism porn. A little bit of actual porn.

    Oh, and also there’s a bit where we learn seven-year-old Bucky tried to play pirates by naming Steve “Jolly Rogers.”

    Summary

    NY Times bestseller Derek Hale hates a lot of things about being a modern author. Like being recognized, like needing a social media presence, like not being able to buy his own boxed spaghetti noodles without being asked for a selfie. Facing writer's block, he escapes to his old hometown of Beacon Hills, at his sister's insistence, for some reprieve and hopefully motivation. It's there his attention is captured by a gangly, socially awkward teacher, and the tiny little toddler at his side who know him only as that one basketball player who fled town at fifteen after his girlfriend burnt his house down.
