Why This Must Be Read: Most Darcy/Avengers stories feature Darcy as the the pursuer, especially if it's a Darcy/Steve or Darcy/Bruce story. This is different in that most of the chasing and persuasion falls to Steve. Darcy's hang-ups about dating a superhero (especially one like Steve) are true to life and well-realized. I love that Steve isn't too much of the blushing innocent here because let's face it: he was in the Army, and Bucky was his best friend. This is a Steve that is pretty comfortable making the moves, even if he doesn't know exactly what he's doing. The humor and drama are well-balanced, and I love all of the team cameos. The crowning glory for me, though, is the author's portrayal of Steve. I dare you not to fall in love with him.
