    Summary

    “While I find you aesthetically and psionically appealing, I am aware enough of your subspecies to know that you are incapable of forming any sort of lasting bond outside of Terra-strain Humans. While I appreciate your conversation and believe we would find physical interaction and intercourse mutually gratifying, I have no inclination to indulge in the Human custom of a one-night stand.”

    “How about one lifetime? Want to indulge in that?”

    “No, I do not believe that even that would be sufficient.”

    Summary

    "You really gotta be kidding me," drawls a voice, and Steve actually jumps a little. For a second he backslides, thinks, fork, plastic, not ideal but given enough force the tines could break skin—

    Then it sinks in, and he turns in his seat to see James Buchanan Barnes, drinking a protein shake.

    or: Bucky Barnes and Steve Trevor have a shared past, starting in a prison camp in Austria and ending in a garden in Gotham. sometimes it helps to have someone with shared life experiences around.

    Summary

    In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).

    [from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]

    In the aftermath of Steve's return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.
