In the 1940s, a woman cons her way into the army. Well, not the army-army, but army-adjacent. She meets Bucky Barnes and promptly forgets that he exists. The rest is literal history, albeit one that she doesn't remember. She didn't mean for it to happen like that. Or maybe she did.
70 years later, Ashley Stark --a terrible name, she knows-- newly equipped with magic from the weird blue cube and skills with computers and fighting from a past she'd rather not talk about, decides to save her friend, Steve Rogers, a recent fugitive of SHIELD, from his own stupidity. Naturally, this leads to revelations of a past she never knew about, one that revolves around the same power she once attributed to a freak accident.
As Ashley tries to figure out what Steve is hiding from her, she sifts through memories she didn't know she had, battling a power she can't control, all while trying to figure out just why she knows that the man trying to kill them all means something to her.
Takes place during the events of The First Avenger and The Winter Soldier.
