    An excellent backstory for Raphaella! Probably won't make sense if you don't know The Mechanisms, though.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This is an incredibly moving story. I'm not particularly a Drarry shipper, not being of the view that antagonism equals sexual tension, but this is nuanced and thoughtful and beautifully crafted.

    Three relationships in transition in one weekend - the characters are complex and well-written, and the whole thing is engaging and a great read.

    Summary

    On May 7, 2013, the sixty-eighth anniversary of Steve Rogers’s death, the war record of the 23rd Headquarters Special Troops was declassified. Overnight, their work in World War II became public knowledge: a “Ghost Army” that deceived and terrorised Axis forces with phantom troops, decoy inflatables, spoofed radio signals, professionally recorded sound effects—and the myth of Captain America himself. 

    Steve Rogers never got the serum. He doesn't have superhuman abilities. What he has is a paintbrush, some stage props, a stomach full of spite, and a Bucky Barnes.

    It's enough.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    A completely different take on Captain America, and one I love., An excellent idea, well-executed.
