Author: eyres
Canon: Captain America | MCU
Pairing: Steve Rogers/James ‘Bucky’ Barnes
Rating: Teen [PG]
Word Count: 30,550
Summary: James Barnes thinks he has relatively normal life. He has a job (security at the Wakandan embassy) and a house and some hobbies. Sure, he shares a name with the famous (now dead) international assassin and he just woke up from a coma with no arm or memory of his past life – but everyone has their quirks, right? Nonetheless, James can’t shake the feeling he was meant for more than this. When he discovers he has superpowers, James finds himself taking on the mantle of vigilante and finds himself face to face with a masked superhuman named Nomad. Where did James get his superpowers? Why can’t he remember his past? Why is he so drawn to Nomad’s blue eyes? And how does Steve Rogers play into all of this? — Featuring: a superhero’s origin, a love story, and a happy ending.

Recommendation: This was so wonderful! I love that James is not “Bucky” except that he is all of the best parts and best instincts of Bucky. I’d never heard of Steve Rogers being Nomad so that was an interesting education. [Goggle the costume he wore, it’s bananas.] I love that Steve holds off getting involved with James because of all the secrets, it makes me love Steve even more (James agrees). And I really love everybody’s cameos. I really just love this story from start to finish.
