    A pilot in the RAF she takes to the skies to keep back the Jerry's flying over the Channel. It's not easy to be constantly dicing with death, but it must be done.

    On a single flight she witnesses the death of her father, but rather than crumbling it makes her more determined.

    Drawing an enemy pilot inland the plane crashes, bursting into flames. On inspection it is decided that the pilot was unable to eject.

    However that verdict was wrong, Erwin survived, and he now must evade capture at all costs.

    Wounded and with nowhere to go Erwin thinks he has lucked out on finding an obviously long abandoned homestead.

    Except it's not abandoned for long, and someone is coming home.

    Summary

    Bucky was guided to the southern side of the island, where the terrain was the rockiest, thus the slickest post-rain. He hurried over puddles and felt his frown grow deeper and deeper the closer to the shoreline they went and then thick tufts of wild grass gave way to boulders and whispering, lapping sea to reveal—

    A man.

     

    [Bucky is a lighthouse keeper post-WWI and, after a storm seems to crack open the sky, finds Steve Rogers has washed up on his shore.]

    When Remus' parents pass away and he is left with no way of providing for himself, he is forced to leave his childhood village in Wales and travel to London to find work as a self-taught but skilled painter. It is there that he meets Sirius: beautiful, enigmatic, recently disowned for reasons he refuses to discuss - and interested in exploiting Remus' talent to solve both their financial troubles.
