A Marvel Cinematic Universe FanFiction
While the Winter Soldier was a ghost story, Nadine Ryker is a ghost. She's The Ghost. Her past is a mystery, her identity even more so.
Few knew her as Nadya Ivanovna Rykova, the lost recruit of the Red Room, never spoken of after her disappearance. But she got along just fine, hiding away with her secret life, re-emerging only to take contracts that few others are willing to take.
To hunt other Assassins.
But when she's contracted to take out Black Widow? Her long ago 'little sister'?
Her life and her secrets all begin to unravel.
This story is effectively split into two parts, with Part I focusing on themes of the price of secrets, family, self-acceptance and finding somewhere to belong, with the Steve/OC romantic sub-plot beginning in earnest in Part II.
Part I starts just before Avengers: Age of Ultron and Part II starts shortly after AoU ends and goes through to just beyond Captain America: Civil War.
Warning!! It is a *VERY SLOW BURN*
Companion Story to "Haven" (formerly called 'Please Stay') and, though highly recommended, it's not necessary to have read it to enjoy this one!
