      Bookmark Notes:

      “He was a poor Irish kid from Brooklyn with a list of medical problems as long as your arm. According to Barnes, he’d been a socialist back before the war and spent most of his time getting himself beat up for spouting off about one thing or another. He had at least some understanding of what it can be like.”

      Langston scoffed. “The depression brought everyone down a peg or two. We had but few pegs to fall. It’s not the same thing.”

      “No, not the same. I just mean that he hadn’t had it easy. He knew what it was like to always be proving yourself. Don’t get me wrong - he was a stupid, stubborn son of a bitch a lot of the time. But it was the stubbornness that made me and Morita a part of the Howling Commandos in the first place. The brass didn’t want us there, especially not when there were cameras rolling. Rogers wouldn’t stand for it; said we had just as much a right to be there as anyone else.”

      Gabe sat up a bit straighter in his chair.

      “I think it was more than just being poor and sickly that made him that way. He and Barnes...I don’t know. We were busy fighting a war, but I sometimes got the feeling that Rogers knew exactly what is was like to be different in a way that people might kill you for. He just carried that difference inside of him instead of in his skin.”

      “You telling me that Captain America was a fairy?”

    Summary

    "It’s true: they are inevitable. They are meteors, supernovas full of words, celestial stardust. They are insatiable wolves in the night—and they are going to collide one day or so help them. So help them."

    A collection of Carrouac (Jack Kerouac/Lucien Carr) headcanons fleshed out into somewhat coherent prose. Likely more chapters to be posted as I continue to cry over this pairing.

    Obviously this story deviates a lot from historical accuracy. Be warned.
