    Summary

    Steve gets out of the hospital in two days, but just barely. “I’m fine,” he tells Sam, Nurse Eunjung and the phalanx of doctors assigned to make sure Captain America didn’t bleed out and die and get bad PR all over their nice clean hospital. “I have an advanced healing factor. It’s fine. See? I’m standing.”

    “That is not standing,” Sam tells him.

    “You’re bending the IV stand,” Nurse Eunjung adds pointedly. “Let go and sit down, they don’t grow on trees.”

    Summary

    Steve lives in Stark Tower and doesn't have much to do when he's not going after Hydra strongholds. He attends charity events to make Pepper happy. He goes hiking with Sam. He hangs out with Clint in Bed-Stuy and watches Dog Cops. Sometimes Tony gives him super alcohol in a sippy cup. Sometimes he sees Bucky out of the corner of his eye and wonders if it's real or if he's starting to lose his mind.

    Alternately, the one with terrible jokes, a foot chase through the Lower East Side, and a tiny little robot named Shitcan.

    Summary

    "They'd each been there, just once, spending as little time as possible in the room and, in [the southern pansy's] case, trying not to touch any flat surface. The other one, the flash southern bastard in the sunglasses, was—Shadwell suspected—not someone he ought to offend. In Shadwell's simple world, anyone in sunglasses who wasn't actually on a beach was probably a criminal. He suspected that Crowley was from the Mafia, or the underworld, although he would have been surprised how right he nearly was. But the soft one in the camelhair coat was a different matter, and he'd risked trailing him back to his base once, and he could remember the way. He thought Aziraphale was a Russian spy. He could ask him for money. Threaten him a bit."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    Another SUPERB essay on these two/queerness/subversion.

    "What makes Aziraphale’s and Crowley’s particular subversion of masculinity both remarkable and understandable is indivisible from their history. These two watched over 6,000 years of masculinity in the making—entrenched in countless permutations of oppression and violence*—and decided that their masculinity would be anything but . Rather, their masculinity is friendship between those who were fated to be enemies. It is working together . It is physical comfort and affection; it is softness, wanting to be left alone together, and not messing people about. Their masculinity is theirs . They created it; they perform it both individually and together. It is queer ."

    Bookmarker's Notes

    This essay on the transness of angels/demons performing gender at all and the queerness of Aziraphale and Crowley in particular is EXCELLENT.

    Summary

    Captain America wakes up from the ice in 2013. The Winter Soldier wakes up in 2009, or rather defects from HYDRA, for a value of defect that’s closer to decimate. He ends up working for SHIELD. In April 2014, he’s assigned to Captain America’s mission as a sniper.

    Steve’s just trying to get some kind of life together. Bucky is too, or at least he was until tall, blond and Captain shows up and starts just - being there, all the time. It’s terrible. It’s the worst. He has to do something about it.

    I... don't usually read ABO?? But this is so different? Soft and good and beautiful and makes my heart go squishy.
