    Summary

    The Soldier lived staccato, existing entirely through events, things that are announced solemnly on the news or make the history books. Between each snapshot horror was cold and blank. Now, Bucky Barnes is passing through time, each indivisible now disappearing into the next, and he does not feel capable of understanding the way it all fits together into a self.

    Bucky has life grow around him, in the bluegrass, the bellies of the broodmares, and his own unruly body.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    He pulls himself up to get a look at this new horse, sitting cross-legged. This is no Sado, who was shaggy and ragged and small. This horse has the sleek, highly engineered look of something valuable and prized. Its coat is a glossy dark brown and when it shifts a little in response to Bucky’s movements, legs bracing in front of it, Bucky can see its muscles bunch. Bucky curls his metal arm into a fist just to feel those almost-muscles move.

    “Hello,” he says. His voice is ragged and he clears his throat. “Hi there.”

    He reaches up, very slowly and carefully, and rubs his human palm against the hard bone of its nose. The fur there is short and soft, almost like velvet. He rubs again, marvelling a little. French fries and soft things.

    Summary

    It seems horribly fitting that when Marta’s soulbond arrives, it’s in the most absurdly ridiculous, horrible way imaginable. It involves the Thrombeys, so of course something that should be wonderful just ends up being terrible in the end.

    Summary

    You are not courageous. Your dreams have always been the bravest parts of you.

    Another piece of written magic from dialux ❤️❤️❤️

    Oh, my heart. Dialux has such a way with words and a indescribable way of capturing characters. I loved their Sansa and they’ve done the same magic with Percy. He was one of my favourites before, but my goodness here he is just making my heart twist for him. He’s so striped back, raw, and determined. He’s been rendered by war, by this world into something- someone frightful and unknown. And he’s looking right at his world, his work, his life/friends/family, himself.
