yessss, the little guy who could, great american hero, cap

"Between Their Loved Homes and the War's Desolation" (Captain America: Steve/Sam, R)

Hi, everybody!

So, you know when you sign up for an anonymous challenge and you're all excited thinking up what you might get and then you get your gift and you're totally blown away by what some kind soul has created just for you? Well, that happened to me just now! One of my requests was for George Cooper, the Rogue, from Tamora Pierce's Song of the Lioness, and russian_blue went and wrote a sweet, sharp, and clever fic that gets him down so perfectly, language and intuition and intelligence and all: Third Time Pays for All. Go, enjoy!

In other news, I ended up writing more Captain America fic for the challenge (STEVE ROGERS! is basically what I'm saying these days instead of STEVE HOLT!), and got to indulge my fondness for Steve/Sam. justhuman's requests left a lot of wiggle room to write the kind of fic I wanted, which was something that would get Steve and Sam into bed together but believably, not ignoring everything they've both been through - I hope that shows up in the fic. minim_calibre did a beautiful beta on the story and suggested layers. I took the title from the national anthem. No spoilers for Age of Ultron or Ant-Man because I haven't seen either.

As always, I'd love to hear what you think.
