    Summary

    Once upon a time, there was a boy named Bucky.

    This boy was like others you might know. He liked to fight wolves, pretend he was a knight, and wage magnificent wars against the most villainous of villains. He played knights and vanquished all the villains he and his friends could imagine. But then he grew up, and the villains vanquished him.

    And there was another boy; Steve. He was not much like other boys you’d know, or maybe he is, depending on the sort of boys you know. Wars were not his ideal session of make-believe. He liked to befriend wolves rather than fight them. He was a boy, but he grew up long before he should have.

    Adventures always start with kids like that. Bucky was the boy who took too long to start the process of growing up and then grew up all in one night. Steve was the boy who grew up much too quickly to have been a boy in the first place. This story might sound like it’s about just one of these boys, but that’s not really true. It’s not really about either of them, because to say that it’s about one of them would be disingenuous. Candidly, this story is about what they grew up to be.

    The wolf and the witch that befriended him.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A gender swapped Captain America fic that explores identity/perception.

     

    Favorite part:
    "But I think you already know that, and that’s why you’re asking.”

    “I’m not sure I know how to be a girl,” Eve says. “I don’t know if I can be. I have no idea how to act like--”

    “Why does that matter?” Gail asks. “You don’t have to act like a girl. You just have to act like Captain America.”

    Summary

    In the year 96 AD, all Rome is aware that their gods have begun to Mark certain people with their gifts -- the healing power of Apollo, the metal control of Vulcan, the deathly touch of Pluto, or the mental powers of Minerva. When those gifts fall to slaves or barbarians instead of the Romans themselves, strict control is necessary.

    Then a gladiator from Judea meets an enslaved scribe from Britannia, and the repercussions will shake the Empire itself.
