    Summary

    They've mistaken Percy for one of their own, another angel chained to the material plane. He can hardly imagine a more ironic misconception. “It’s the hair, isn’t it?” he says, raking it back with a self-conscious hand. Theirs is thin, white, and gently curled, like his. “It didn’t start this way. I’m afraid I'm only human, as disappointing as that is."

    Summary

    “I learned so much about Captain America in high school and earlier on here at NYU, and never once… God, I mean, I know why, but it still irritates me that no one bothered to mention Captain America was queer.”

     

    There’s an immediate uproar after that, one guy in particular practically yelling, “Oh, come the hell on!”

     

    Or the one where Bucky's college class has an entire debate about Captain America's sexuality without realizing he's in the room.

    Summary

    In 1945 Steve Rogers crashed the Valkyrie into the Arctic Ocean and was never recovered.

    In 2019 Bucky Barnes is walking along the beach below the decommissioned lighthouse where he lives with his sixteen month old daughter when he finds the body of a man washed up in the surf, half frozen but miraculously alive.

    Bucky manages to revive him, but finds that the stranger has no memory of who he is or how he got here aside from a name: Steve. Snowed in by a blizzard soon after and unable to get Steve a medevac, Bucky discovers that the funny, good-hearted man slips into the fabric of his and Alice’s life faster than he would have thought possible. The two are undeniably drawn to each other, but as their feelings grow so does the looming possibility that the answer to the question “who is Steve?” might be much more complicated than either of them realized.

    Summary

    There’s a price to pay for being friends with the former Winter Soldier, but Steve was unavailable for comment so Sam’s ass is the one that ends up being kidnapped. And if that’s not bad enough, these guys expect Sam to roll over and give Bucky, and all his secrets, up without a fight.
    Sam may hate the way Bucky sticks his spoon in the sugar after it’s been in his coffee, but he’s not about to throw a fellow vet under the bus. Not for his own life or anyone else’s.
    ~
    "Sam lets a sharp breath out of his nose and squeezes his eyes shut until phosphenes explode behind his eyelids. He needs to keep a positive attitude. The moment he shows weakness to anyone, even himself, is the moment this all goes downhill.
    As if it isn’t downhill already, Sam grumbles internally."
