    It's perfect. This work has a grace and poise that moved me.

    I'd love to find the tunes Phillips was whistling.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Kill the tyrant Kal-El before his rise to power." Martha Kent as a protective, bad-ass mother with a shotgun. The story makes me feel uncanny dread, but also I feel warmth for the characters--it's like how I feel listening a Welcome to Night Vale radio play.

    Summary

    Sam puts the Trouble Man soundtrack on repeat, like a talisman at first, when he thinks that Steve might die. The doctors are grim and serious, claiming that they did what they could for him, removing the bullets and stitching his insides back together. A few hours later, the doctors' faces get less grim, more confused, and a few hours after that, they're throwing their arms up in the air in frustration and grinning with triumph at the same time, because apparently the Super Soldier Serum is worth more than just the fastest mile in human history.

    Sam spends that time beside Steve, in the position he's gotten used to after only a couple of days: on his right, waiting to see where he'll run next, ready to get his back.

    Bucky feels something clench in the pit of his stomach, all the hunger he’s been walling up for months clamoring to get out.

    “Goddamn it,” he says quietly. “Okay.”
