    Summary

    Darcy Lewis just wanted to strike out on her own. Unfortunately, she lands in Washington, DC, ten minutes before three helicarriers fall from the sky.

    So she starts a charity, fights Hydra, and falls for an archer, because what else are you going to do in the aftermath?

    Bookmarker's Notes

    I love how this fic deals directly with all of the many people whose lives would have been negatively affected by the shieldra file leak. Very few fics do this and the movies definitely don't, but obviously there would tremendous fallout from that and a lot of the people in those files would be innocent civilians.

    “Um,” Darcy said, and they all turned to her. She thrust her fists into her hoodie to stop her hands from shaking. “Thanks for the rescue from hideous, many-headed death and I don’t mean to seem a jerk, but I think I’ve got it from here.”

    Hawkeye grimaced. “That’s not a good idea.“

    “Yeah, but it’s my idea. I’m going to keep my head down. Go home, maybe be a barista for a while. Go to law school, maybe, if the economy ever improves, which after this it’s not going to. Oh well, barista for life. Everyone needs coffee, right? I need coffee.”

    One misdirected email, two losers in love, three little words. It's quite the journey as Bruce and Darcy navigate from acquaintances to something more in this story told through emails, texts, and social media.

    Summary

    “You’re Bucky Barnes!” Darcy blurts out, feeling dumb for just now figuring it out. James looks a bit tense at that, and Steve frowns, starting to move toward them. “Do you know how many memes I’ve shared about your hair?!”

    He relaxes at that, actually smirking a bit. “And you still didn’t recognize me until now? I’m wounded,” James says.

    “To be fair, you’re wearing a lot of eyeliner,” Darcy says. “And I’ve just been through a very traumatizing situation, so.” She says it with a heavy dose of haughty sarcasm so he knows she’s not overly serious.

    “Uh huh,” James says, but he’s smirking. Steve still looks a bit wary as he sits down next to James, but not like he’s going to step in. Good, she’d hate to be lectured by the symbol of American freedom. “These better be complimentary memes.”

    Summary

    If Thor went for the head, nobody got dusted, and Jane Foster got called in to help rescue Tony Stark, Peter Parker and Dr. Strange from space. Darcy is initially a little wary of being on the same compound as the former Winter Soldier, but the real Bucky Barnes is less scary and a lot hotter than she'd expected. Starts as an Infinity War fix-it and gets fluffy once our two leads get to know each other.

    Chapters alternate between Darcy's and Bucky's POV. I borrowed the title from the Weakerthans song of the same name. It gives me 'recovering Bucky' vibes.
