    A gorgeously written fic for me, that tackles two wishes I've always had. One, a redemption arc of some kind for Dan, but one that is believable and fits his character. I always felt so bad for the way his fate ended up. This writer took my crazy thought that maybe Dan was gay, and made it work astoundingly well. I love how the writer was careful not to downplay how difficult that would be, yet at the same time made an ending that gave me what I wanted (I won't give away who Dan loves, and how it works, but it works SO WELL, while still keeping a bittersweet realism that just fits) . Then, on top of that, the author creates a beautifully simple yet plausible story about Jo and Laurie. And... perhaps best of all, gives *great* Nan (one of my fave characters along with Jo).

    Summary

    He watched Cap—Rogers—take in the gleaming armour on the floor, the outfit Tony had on, and the utilitarian but still fairly sophisticated interior of the medical bay. Watched as consternation gave way to creeping dread. “How long?” he asked, after a long moment. He sounded hoarse and far off. “Have we won?”
    The door slammed open and both of them jumped. Tony put a hand tentatively on Cap’s wrist. Cap looked at him, watchful, but more trusting than Tony deserved. He tried to keep his voice steady.
    “We won,” he said. “We won seventy years ago. My name’s Tony Stark. I’m Howard’s son.”

    Summary

    "...to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea shore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me." -- Newton
