    Summary

    Captain America was a hero. He was a living legend, revered and adored and invincible. He fought for everyone who had good in his or her heart, for anyone who believed in the worth of life and the value of freedom. He was a shield between evil and innocence. He stood for justice, for honor, for responsibility and integrity. Captain America was a symbol that endured. Captain America was hope.

    The truth was, though, that behind the hero was simply a man. And men could fall.

    _________________________

    A horrific accident on the battlefield leaves Steve blind and permanently injured with little hope for recovery. Now Bucky, who's barely freed himself from his time as the Winter Soldier, is faced with a crisis he never imagined. He has to help Steve grieve and adjust to this new life, all while proving to himself that he's worthy enough to pick up the shield and carry on in Steve's place.

    Part of the Captain America Big Bang 2018.

    Summary

    Sam’s father used to tell him; ‘Never meet your idol; they’ll only disappoint.’ Admittedly, Captain America had indeed been an idol of his growing up. Steve Rogers on the other hand, turned out to be even more than that. Sometimes Sam wishes his father were alive to meet Steve and be proven that he isn’t always right.

    Summary

    In New York, too many years into the future he was meant to have, Steve is used to living with the ghosts. But it's Bucky's ghost - the one he invented, the one he named - that may push him over the edge.

    This is HORRIBLY DEPRESSING. *coughs* You've been warned.

    Summary

    Steve’s spent an hour along Portobello Road before he sees the paparazzi on the left side of the street, trying to be inconspicuous by a street lamp. He crosses the street and ducks into the first store he sees, tucked behind a screaming red door and under a blue and white striped awning.

    He listens, feet planted in front of the door, shoulders tense, as he looks around the shop. Row upon row of books are on the shelves in front of him, the wood creaking under their weight. Behind the counter is a dark haired man wearing a jacket, elbow on the table, stubbled chin on one hand, gloved left hand flipping the pages of a book.

    No one follows Steve in.


    Or, the one where Captain America travels the world, learns how to be Steve Rogers again, and meets Bucky Barnes along the way.
    Also: the one where two old souls fall in love over young adult books, long distance calls, and texting at strange hours of the day.
