SUMMARY (given by the author): “We don't recognise others as one whole, we know them in pieces; their eyes, their movements, the way they breathe, the way they smell... Through these unconsciously gathered fragments do we create the whole in our minds. Piece, by piece, by piece, we learn another and we slowly come to recognise them, know them, feel for them, need them...
Not too long after being unfrozen after 70 years under ice, Steve Rogers goes to work for Nick Fury at SHIELD HQ in Washington DC. The missions start to roll in and Nick Fury assigns him a new backup when he finds himself in need of a skilled forward scout and sniper; a strange man with a metal arm and a mask, known only as The Soldier.”

Of course, Steve doesn't forget the Soldier, even after he literally vanishes. It's like an itch under his skin, wondering about what happened to him. Some distant part of him is snapping its jaw like an angry wolf at the thought of any man being so clearly disturbed, while that distress is so keenly ignored by those around him. Something in the way the memo spoke of him - a subject, an appropriated item - and the way the STRIKE team find him amusing, like a sideshow addition, just sits wrongly with Steve.

This story is an alternative take on the events of CATWS. It’s beautifully written and told from Steve’s POV. In this Steve sometimes goes on missions with a mysterious operative who is called the Soldier. Steve is intrigued by this enigmatic guy who always wears a mask and goggles and seldom talks. So he makes inquiries, and bit by bit uncovers shocking secrets.

I loved this fic so much! There was action, suspense, heartbreak, angst, and a most beautiful flashback scene. And a happy ending of course. The way the Winter Soldier thinks was pretty inventive. The characterizations feel real and true to canon. A lovely story for one evening.
