Why This Must Be Read: There's a baby at the end of this UA fic, with all the sweetness and shippiness that you'd want there to be, but this quiet, ambitious story is much more about what Natasha's pregnancy—as a young Red Room operative being trained by the mysterious and amnesiac Winter Soldier—means and ultimately creates for both characters, together and as individuals. There's pain and pleasure and a lot of soul-searching, and it's worth a read for fans of either character (or of both)!
