    Summary

    Steve Rogers had a train ticket in hand and the chance to begin again after losing everything in Brooklyn - his father, his mother, the comfort and familiarity of home. Going west meant the opportunity to become his own man and stake his claim on the wide, flat prairie.

    Then, of course, there was Bucky Barnes.

    Summary

    Steve had already stopped believing in the hopeful mantra that he just hadn't met the right person yet, that things would turn around for him, that someone would see past his shortcomings.

    Fact was, he'd known that someone most of his life but no amount of looking past shortcomings was gonna deliver that person into his arms.

    It's 1937, and Steve takes matters into his own hands.

    Summary

    So long ago the details were lost to time, people began creating guardians of the dead. They were made from dogs, dogs who were buried in graveyards before anyone was laid to rest, their spirits arising as black dogs, bound protectors of the human dead.

    Steve had always wondered what would happen after he died. He hadn't expected the answer to be 'wake up in the cemetery he'd been buried in', but here he was, some kind of ghost, and he could see the trees through his hands. It wasn't so bad, and he wasn't alone—a sleek black dog, golden eyes glowing bright, was happily waiting to greet him.

    Decades later, on what was supposed to be a quiet, peaceful, definitely-not-life-changing walk through the woods, Bucky stumbled across an abandoned cemetery and into the impossible.

    (It's a ghost story and a love story and a story about dogs.)

    Summary

    Bucky's just having a little trouble...finishing. Completing the mission. He can squeeze the trigger but he can't make the shot is what he's saying.

    Which is why he's here, loitering outside a nice brownstone in Park Slope, trying to find the courage to knock on Captain Come Control dot com's door for his three o'clock appointment.

    You know, just normal Thursday things.
