Fic Recommendtion: eretria's Seasons of War
Up front, I'm biased. She's my wifey and I beta-ed this. It's like I'm its godmother.
eretria has finished and posted a complete version of her Captain America: The Winter Soldier fic.
But it's good, okay, objectively, it's a damn good story about Steve Rogers going from the naive kid who thought going to war was something anyone sane would want to do to a deeply decent leader of men, along with being a painful period love story, and a tale of war and life in the military. If you don't want to cry for Bucky Barnes and Steve Rogers by the end of reading it, you've had your tear ducts removed. I don't want to give away too much, but I have to warn for the fact, she wrote it for me and delved into all the painful aspects a lot of fic glosses over (because that stuff pleases my sadistic soul), but none of it is gratuitous.
If you read or mean to read, do heed the warnings and tags. If you read it, hold onto this, at the end, there is hope, like the first visible star of the evening.
