    "Do you know anyone who wants a cat? Not Fred. Rest assured, Fred is still firmly ensconced in our home."

    There was a long silence on the other end of the line. Then, finally, "You're calling me to ask if I know anyone who wants a cat?"

    Summary

    “Do you want to go somewhere more… private?”

    The blond man, after a long silence, had agreed. “My room is just up the block,” he said, jerking his head at the bar’s door.

    In 1937, Steve Rogers joins the army, and by 1945, he’s back in Brooklyn, dishonorable discharge in hand and nothing to show for years in the Pacific.

    In 1947, a seventeen year old Bucky Barnes meets Steve Rogers in a Brooklyn gay bar, and Steve Rogers finally comes home.

    Summary

    “That one,” Tony says gleefully. “I pick him.”

    “Him?” Bucky hisses. “Steve Rogers?”

    “Bet’s a bet,” Tony says smugly. “Make Steve Rogers the class president by the end of the year.”

    “Motherfucker,” Bucky curses. Then he takes a fortifying breath. He can do this. He’s Bucky Son of A Senator Barnes. He runs a hand through his hair, messing it up in the front just the way he knows men and women like it.

    “Fine,” he says. “Okay. By the end of the year. Easy.”

    ***

    When Bucky Barnes--son of a state Senator, future president of his fraternity, and co-captain of his college’s soccer team--gets unceremoniously and very publicly dumped at a party, his entire reputation hangs on by the thinnest thread. Drunk and humiliated, he does the only thing that makes sense--he makes a bet with Tony Stark.

    Now Bucky has the length of the school year to take Steve Rogers--small, asthmatic, environmentally-conscious art nerd, political activist, and complete social disaster--and turn him into the student body president. How many misunderstandings, shenanigans, and college tropes will abound before Bucky realizes that Steve Rogers, well, he’s all that?

    Summary

    Exactly what it says on the box. (Or: a film major has a bad day and unwinds by taking screenshots from her new digital copy of CATFA and writing a dumb essay about dumb gay superheroes.)
