    Summary

    Steve's a war vet that needs a job.
    Whether or not he needs the crazy one-armed trick rider from a two-bit dog and pony show circus crushing on him, is up for grabs, but he definitely needs a job. And a sandwich. And maybe some help with his PTSD.

    Summary

    “CHORUS: Brave girl.
    KASSANDRA: People never say that to a lucky person, do they?”
    -"Agamemnon", Aeschylus (trans. Anne Carson)

    -

    Steve’s always wanted to see Madrid: to have the chance to wander through Retiro Park; to explore the Museo del Prado and the Royal Palace and the Reina Sofía; maybe to light a candle at the Almudena Cathedral; to drink wine and eat tapas at all hours of the night and go dancing until the sun comes up, just once or twice.

    Never in his entire life had he expected it might happen this way, though: a terrible memory ground into his brain; a scar the size of his fist knotted over his shoulder; his friends convinced he’s dead; his hair dyed dark; and a bodyguard next to him that’s pretending to be his new husband.

    Summary

    Steve, it's not your fault, Sam had tried to say, before Steve cut him off, and Steve doesn't think that's untrue so much as it's irrelevant; fault's got nothing to do with it. It's just—wrong. It's wrong. Steve couldn't wrap his head around it the first time, how wrong it was. Steve should have gone first. Was supposed to. Bucky could have carried on without Steve, he knows, but Steve without Bucky is a zero sum. There should never be a world that Steve is in and Bucky isn't.
