SUMMARY (given by the author): “They bought-- what? A body in cryo?” Maria Hill looks skeptical. “How’d one guy fresh out of the ice kill a whole room?”


Excerpt:
The meeting adjourns, and the Captain lingers while Natasha’s packing up her things. “Are you sure you want to go alone?” he asks, real concern in his voice. It’s sweet, if misplaced. “I mean, I wouldn’t mind-- it’s not like I have anything much to do.”

“I was wondering why you came to this briefing,” she says.

Steve shrugs his big shoulders. “They’re not giving me much in the way of actual work, and Tony says I’m not allowed back in his lab until I can explain how a microchip works. I go to a lot of meetings. I’m getting bored, if you want total honesty.”

“This isn’t a mission for someone new to covert ops, Captain,” she says. “You’re kind of-- overt.”

“Call me Steve,” he says, and offers her a shy, hopeful smile, at odds with the confidence she remembers from working with him. “I did work with the French Resistance during the war, you know; I can do covert. And I need something to do.”

“Let me think about it,” Natasha says, and goes.


WHY I LIKE THAT FIC:
This is a work of beauty. Fantastically written with wonderful characterizations that feel totally in-character. It’s told from Natasha’s POV, which is a beauty in itself because the author captures her voice so incredibly well, it’s so refreshing to see everything (especially Bucky and Steve) through her eyes. In this story Natasha and Steve go on a field trip to find the Winter Soldier. The story flows just right and the way the threesome develops feels very natural and realistic. I loved every second reading this.
