    Summary

    Post-131. Despite their greatest efforts and as quick of a pace as they dared, foul weather dashed their hopes of arriving at the guarded entrance before nightfall. The Mighty Nein, now eight, spend a relaxing final night in the tower before planning to set out at first light and see what is to come.

    Summary

    Steve takes in Bucky's betrayed look and Sam's confusion, follows Sam's gaze to the pile of mangled fruit in the trash can. Sudden comprehension fills his face.

    "Oh," he says. "Bucky found out about bananas."

     

    In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you're thinking of.

    Interlude: The Story of Steve “Walking PR Nightmare” Rogers, and How For a Short While He Single-Handedly Destroyed the Emotional Health of Eva Laura Ortiz, His Now Ex-Publicist

     

    (Throwback Thursday to that time in 2015 when I decided to just really lean into my incredibly self-indulgent headcanons about Steve Rogers, his politics, and kind of his whole deal. Occasionally people ask why this isn't on AO3 so here it is! Seven-ish years later. I aim to please. Eventually.)

    Summary

    Eddie’s never really thought of the back of his van as a particularly great place.

    He hasn’t vacuumed it out in…ever. And his friends have definitely spilled their fair share of beer back here. It smells a little bit like stale cigarettes and there’s at least a dozen guitar picks lost forever in the seats and the carpet.

    But with Chrissy Cunningham writhing beneath him, his mouth on her throat, he’s gotta say he can’t think of any place closer to heaven.

    Pretty nice for a guy who’s been told he’s going to hell.

    Summertime, 1986
