A tribute to my favourite superhero, this follows Steve’s journey and gave me goosebumps.
This gives me all the feels. A lovely tribute to a couple that never had a chance and managed to live through the pain.
Peggy watched James. She watched James watch Steve. She watched Steve watch her, except:
It took some time, but she saw it.
When Steve was tired, especially, when his accent thickened and his posture slumped a little. Then it wasn’t Peggy he looked for. It was James.
Those poor boys.
Didn’t they read The Iliad in America?
Adult, polyamory. Happy little story (although less so considering we know what happens next…), in which the boys are clueless – but luckily Peggy is beyond awesome. 🙂

Womb to tomb, sweetheart.
An amazing vid for a breathtakingly heartwrenching fic. Music: Arctic, by Sleeping At Last.
“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.
Peggy and everything that makes her her. Lovely introspective overview. Music: We Meet in Dreams, by Gothic Storm.
