Part One
Part Two

Coulson enters Fury’s office at a fast clip, coming to stand in front of his desk. Fury is frowning at a folder and doesn’t look up. “I came as soon as you called, sir.”

“Sit down, Coulson.”

Coulson does. “Might I ask why you haven’t informed Captain Rogers yet? If the report is true—”

“Oh, it’s true, alright.” Fury closes the folder and pushes it across the desk to him. “It’s all in there. In black and white and in living color: photos across six decades, and our top analysts confirm it—they’re all the same man.”

Coulson opens it up, holding one of the pictures up closely. “This last one was taken—”

“Four hours ago. Security feed from Union Station. He’s downstairs right now.” Fury leans across the desk, fingers steepled together. “You ever see an urban legend come to life? It’s a helluva thing. Problem is, he doesn’t remember a damn thing about what he’s done in all this time.”

“Amnesia?” Coulson frowns. “Part of his programming?”

“God knows what that man’s been through. If he’s really out of there, after having been the go-to assassin for the Eastern powers this long? That’ll be complicated all on its own. But if he’s some kind of sleeper agent, sent in to take down Cap?” Fury looks even more grim than usual. “He’s Rogers’s greatest weakness—always was.”

“But Stark—”

“Stark’s devotion to Rogers, heartwarming though it is, doesn’t exactly counterbalance his history as a loose cannon.” Fury fixes him with that single eye, and Coulson feels cold inside. “If there’s a hard call to be made, I need to know that there will be someone there to carry it out. The Avengers are heroes, Coulson, and the problem with heroes is that they tend to get other people dead. We’re in the business of preventing that. Understand?”

Coulson nods. He doesn’t want to, but he does. “Yes, sir.”

“Good.” Fury turns the folder around and picks up the top photo: old, browned at the edges, showing two figures beaming into the camera with their arms around each other. “If Bucky Barnes becomes a problem, you have my permission to eliminate him—with extreme prejudice.”

This is very, I hesitate to say cute, even though it is. The epilogue is ominous, but I enjoyed this fic! Thanks for sharing it!

Hnnng. LOVED the fic, and if this is hinting at ANOTHER fic which may or may not end up with a threesome of epicness THEN YOU ARE MY NEW IDOL.

OMGOMGOMG Unicorns! Steve! Tony's maturity!
I loved this fic! And the darker tone of the epilogue works quite well with the sugar sweetness of the previous scene.

*phew* I worried about that a bit, so I'm glad it worked! And yeah, Tony's "maturity." *G* Glad you liked it!!

Wow, I haven't giggled that much in a fic in weeks! LOVE! So much love! Please tell me you're writing the next one? Because that end teaser is awesome and ominous and I'm a sucker for that kinda setup where the OTP has to weather a test.

In short, YAY YOU! \o/

This was the fic that I knew I needed as soon as I finished watching the Cap movie and realized he never got to go 'dancing.' I just thought, Avengers must fight unicorns. And now they have.

Thank you.

this was amazing. Just the right amount of cracky, and all over perfect. my only complaint is that, for RL reasons, I had to wait so long to finish it.
Please tell me there's a sequel on the way.

There's a sequel on the way. No really, there is! (God knows when it'll be finished, but...)

That. Was amazing. Okay, that was fan-bloody-tastic. I can't even tell you how much I enjoyed this. Tony was spot-on, Clint made me want to tackleglomp him, Steve was lovely, everyone was perfectly in character. I LOVED THE THOR VOICE BEYOND ALL REASON, ALSO. :DDD Absolutely hilarious, and still very heartwarming. I am going to be jonesing for a sequel, I tell you now! :D LOVED IT. <3333333

the fact that I had to step away from the computer to giggle stupidly during part 2 says it all. :applauds:
