    Summary

    Before he was Captain America, he was Steve Rogers, knobby kneed and wild-eyed, with scrapes on his knuckles and a book in his hands.

    In 1942, he leaves for war and eventually crashes the Valkyrie.

    That's only the beginning of his story.

    In 2011, Steve's body is dragged from ice off the coast of Greenland.

    In 2015, he meets a bookstore clerk.

    This is what happens when a superhero loses his way home and the only way back is through the Yellow Book Road.

    Summary

    “Holy shit,” Howard says, crackling through the speakers. “You alive in there?” Lying is a sin, of course, but Steve’s not sure what else he can do. He’s already lied to the government and Bucky and God Almighty; and himself, himself most of all. He ought to tell the truth. That he’s not quite what they hoped for. That perhaps they should put him back into the ocean.

    “Probably,” he says, instead, listening to Howard’s tinny laughter; and waits for the blast doors to unlock.

    Summary

    A story in which the serum doesn't affect Steve's size, the shield goes to Bucky, and they reunite years before the Battle of New York. Also, Steve is a punk, but that's canon.

    A timeline starting with the Howling Commandos and going all the way to Pre-Infinity War.

    Summary

    Steve has his life in order, okay. He goes to wizard college, even if he can't technically do magic. He has his own apartment, even though it's small and dinky and kind of gross, and forgets to exist sometimes, and might also be alive? Plus, he has a crush on the hot cyborg in unit 404 who cooks fiendishly good breakfast foods, and may or may not have some kind of weird connection to the sentient building they live in. He's not sure.

    He's dealing, all right, his life is in tip-top condition, or it was until an eldritch monstrosity called the Hydra started posing as a real estate company to try and buy over his new home.

    He's really pissed about that.

    (The one where Steve is an angry millennial wizard, Sam is a Disney prince, Natasha is a shapeshifter, and Bucky is a spoiler.)
