    Summary

    Heaven was a wonderful place. Despite your husband not being there with you, you're sure he's just running a little late? Perhaps got stuck in Limbo or Purgatory? It would be awful if he did, you could only hope he'd come join you in Heaven soon.

    But life...well, afterlife, had other plans and you find yourself fallen.

    -> I'm not the best with summaries or tagging...or introductions in general :) <-

    Summary

    1930s Broadway - Penelope Garcia thinks Luke Alvez is an upstart who hasn’t earned the right to direct a big song and dance show. Luke thinks Penelope is a (talented and admittedly beautiful) diva who hates his guts without even knowing him. The problem for producers Emily and Hotch is that they can only get their show bankrolled if both are on board.

    Add to that mix an investor who’s getting a little too involved in the creative process and a hundred people’s jobs on the line and Luke and Penelope hold more than just their own fates in their hands

    Izuku finds himself grinning too as the announcer spouts the results.

     

    “Tonights light- heavyweight winner…”

     

    The crowd riles up even more as Izuku does a little dance in place, raising his arms while doing another walk around the ring. 

     

    “From the great state of Mustafu! Izuku “Deku” Midoriya!” 

     

    The crowd cheers once more.

    -

    He has it all. Money. Fame. Family. The Job of his Dreams.

    Though he still feels like he took it all for granted. Having a boxing career isn't that well of a paying job during the Great Depression.

    Summary

    Orpheus was a poor boy, with a rhythm and a rhyme.
    Eurydice was a hungry young girl, no stranger to hard times.

    She was but a wilting lily petal on the river they called Styx.
    She'd waited for the one she loved too long, so now she drifts.

    Orpheus was a sunflower, as bright as summer's day.
    Always leaning towards the light, he saw the world his way.

    When she called out to him he came, to see what she had done.
    Orpheus was a sunflower. Eurydice was his sun.

    Summary

    Not much is known of Steve before 1942 and he likes it that way.
    When asked about his father, he says he died of mustard gas in WW1 before he was born.
    When asked about his mother, he says she was the model American woman of her time.
    When asked about Sargent Barnes, he says he couldn't have asked for a better best friend, seeing him like the brother he never had.
    Those become the short truths of his past when Steve became Captain America.

    ...too bad these truths ain't worth shit.

    Summary

    “Get up, Bucky.” He tugged at Bucky’s sleeve and his friend got up, tears welling up in his eyes. “Get up, you big idiot, you won’t remember anything tomorrow.”
    “You’re right, Stevie, I won’t remember nothin’,” he says, his voice breaking, “just kiss me once more, I won’t tell.” And Steve goes on his tiptoes and kisses him awkwardly, then turns and see the Apollo, now smoking a cigarette with a man twice his age, but so handsome most would probably not care, and he laughs, but not in a vicious way; he laughs as if he wanted to say, “you’ll just see, dear”.

    In which Steve loves Bucky, but pretends not to, and also: the long road before Steve decides if life's absurd.
