“This will go ever so much easier on both of us if you treated me like I had eyes in my head and a brain,” she said, interrupting him without regret. She wanted, more than anything, to wipe that fearful look off of his face. “I promise, I’m not trying to trap you or to blue-card you. In fact, I’d like us to come to some sort of arrangement where Steve is concerned.”
“You’re coming back,” she interrupts him. She throws off his hand, and her jaw is as determined as Bucky’s in a fight. And maybe that’s why he loves them both, that tremendous fierceness they both have.
“But if I don’t,” he insists. “Because we both know it could happen. If I don’t come back, look after Bucky for me.”
Mature, AU series. Steve rescues Bucky but is lost himself. This is awesome – I love Peggy and Bucky’s friendship through the years, and the Soldier’s story just about ripped my heart out. I’m hoping there’ll be a fourth part soon! 🙂
“We’re alive! We’re all alive!” Peggy sobbed. “We’re all going to live,” Peggy sobbed, and suddenly it was all Bucky could do not to break into tears himself, because—because— He was knocked back by a great wall of Steve, and he was going to pull away, give them a minute to hug and kiss while he pulled himself together, except Steve’s arms were coming around them both, he was holding them both together.
Adult, AU. This is amazing – the best “what if Bucky hadn’t fallen” fic I’ve read. Also, I so did not see that plot twist coming. 🙂
It took her a second to understand what she was seeing, to draw the right conclusion from it, and then she felt both angry and ashamed. Small wonder he didn’t like her.
She was the competition.
Adult, polyamory. Peggy realises some things – and because she’s Peggy, she then does something about it. Totally in character, this could easily be outtakes. Even the modern-day epilogue warmed my heart.
Simply stunning, this vid makes my heart break for Steve and Peggy. I don’t even mind the inclusion of the lyrics as text in the vid, normally a pet peeve of mine. It’s just beautiful and touching. Music by Ed Sheeran.
