    Summary

    He should’ve figured this would happen but what he doesn’t expect is for little Steve Rogers to bite out in an equally sad and gutted tone, “Was thinkin’ maybe it’d be the year you fuck me, it bein’ my birthday and all…”.

    Christ, there it is. Bucky recoils minutely, mouth curling, eyes flickering closed, at the tone and crass wording. “Baby, don’t be—” Bucky starts to say, unintentionally sounding exasperated, but Steve is right there to object. “No, Bucky—don’t ‘baby’ me. Don’t fuckin’ ‘baby’ me. You can’t do that. That’s not fair,” and all Bucky can do is look away. Steve is correct; he’s got no right.

    Summary

    “…The modern viewer must remember that prior to the 1960s, soulmark portraits were the ultimate in taboo. But one can see how an artist like Captain Rogers would feel compelled to pick up his sketchbook…

    ...Captain Rogers never did a self-portrait; we can only speculate who his soulmate — or soulmates — might have been."

    Franklin, Hannah. “Howling Commandos Leave their Mark in Portrait Series by Captain America.” Newsweek, July 9, 2009.

    Summary

    Steve Rogers had survived more than he cared to remember.

    Polio. Scarlet Fever. Pneumonia. A bum heart.

    Basic training. Hydra. Nazis. Chorus Girls. World War II.

    A plane crash. Kind of.

    An alien invasion.

    It seemed, however, that the thing that would finally kill Steve Rogers would be as mundane as it was ridiculous.

    “Your poll numbers are way down, and we need to get them back up.”

    Poll numbers.

    Because, apparently in 2013, public opinion about Steve Rogers and his performance as Captain America mattered more than his actual performance as Captain America.

    Last week, Steve and Natasha had taken out a terrorist cell with plans to blow up the Eiffel Tower, and the only casualty had been the broken arm of one bad guy because he tried to cop a feel and Natasha hadn’t been in the mood to watch Steve get his pec squeezed.

    But this week?

    This week, his poll numbers were way down.
