❝I'm glad not to be Captain America. I don't want to try to live up to that anymore.❞

This [was] a sequel to The Soldier & the Shield but can be read as a standalone story that comes after the plot of Captain America: Civil War.
Where the characters are at the end of The Soldier and the Shield is not far off from where they were post-Civil War.
None of the characters or source material belongs to me. Captain America, The Winter Soldier, their canonical storylines, and those of the other characters featured in this story are the intellectual property of Marvel Studios and/or Marvel Comics. I will draw bits and pieces from that source material for the sake of backstory. The only original things about this story are my interpretation of the characters and the direction I decide to take them.
This story is "coming soon," and by that I mean I'm not sure when I will get around to updating. I do plan on developing this story, but I don't always have time to dedicate to writing. It will probably end up being a short story that takes place over the course of a week or a few days.
Once I write more, it may end up as what I call a "dense" story. Technically short, with 10-or-less chapters, but with chapters that are around 5+ thousand words in length. Like Soldier and the Shield.
This will be a Stucky/Stevebucky fan fiction. Content will include intense and at times self-destructive emotions, but nothing particularly mature or explicit. It will take place somewhere between the end of the Captain America trilogy and the beginning of Avengers: Infinity War.
P L A Y L I S T:
01: Two Ghosts, Harry Styles
We're not who we used to be. We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me, trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat.
02: Impossible Year, Panic! At The Disco
These nightmares always hang on past the dream.
03: Flares, The Script
Did you see the sparks filled with hope? You are not alone. Someone's out there, sending out flares.
04: After The Storm, Mumford & Sons
But there will come a time, you'll see, with no more tears. And love will not break your heart, but dismiss your fears.
