I really should be used to this sort of thing by now. Needless to say, this was not where I was expecting to end up today.

I'm Steve Rogers and I am very confused.

OH. MY. GOSH!

This is -- this is incredible!

I'm here! I'm here! I have FINGERS. I have HANDS! This place is sooooooo pretty. It's not really like Equestria, but close enough. I was given money, and told what to do. I should probably tell you who I am. I'm Pinkie Pie! Hiya, everypony! I'm the pink haired pony -- uh, well, I don't seem to be a pony anymore. I have HANDS and my tail is gone -- I guess I'm the pink haired girl now! Neat. Where I come from, I'm known as a party planner, and hey! I throw new ponies parties ALL the time. Since, I'm the new one here, I think it calls for a party! Has anybody seen my party cannon? I think I might have dropped it on my way here. Also, if you come across a toothless alligator, that's Gummy. Please don't hurt him, he's really friendly and won't bite - he can't! He's toothless.

Speaking of losing things, I don't remember how I got here, this actually might be a dream. Has anypony seen Princess Luna around? She would definitely know what to do if this is a dream. I mean, it has to be a dream, right? I haven't tried to fly, yet -- Oh! I should do that.

Nope. Can't fly. In my dreams, I can fly. Or jump really high, and there's always ice cream. Where's the ice cream? Or at least any churros?

I'm hungry.

Oh! If anybody comes across some of my friends, please let me know? Twilight Sparkle, Dashy, AJ, Rarity, Fluttershy, or even Spike (he's a dragon, but a baby dragon, he's nice). I'll put up lost signs later! For now, party planning and baking. Who wants to help?

I'm honestly not sure how to live without a war.

I remember, when Wanda got in my head, I saw things. Things that I had always thought I wanted. Peggy. The idea of Peggy. Settling down after the war and having a family. I thought, back then, that I could have something like that. I still don't know if those were things I actually wanted or if it was just knowing that I was expected to want certain things.

People have this idea that I'm a good person. That I'm moral and righteous and that people should aspire to be like me. I don't understand it. The only time I've ever really felt alive or complete is when I'm fighting. Even when I was sick and thin and got the shit kicked out of me in every back alley in Brooklyn, I only really felt like life made sense when I was fighting. It's probably screwed up. I don't know. I wanted to go to war and I wanted to make a difference, and I told Erskine that it wasn't that I wanted to fight, but I think I was lying to him.

Maybe it's because I lost so much time, but I don't think I ever really left the war behind. I'm not sure I even know how to. It's all there, in my head. All that happened. All the people I couldn't save. And I have to wonder what was the point of it all. I gave up everything to stop HYDRA, only to find out that I hadn't stopped anything. That HYDRA had thrived. That people I cared about had died. That SHIELD, the organization the people I loved built, had fallen to secrets and lies and corruption. That my best friend, my brother in everything but blood, had been turned into a weapon and used by them. That none of it really mattered. I'm so tired and I don't know how to do anything but fight. I just keep waiting for the next battle because it's the only thing that makes sense in the world.

I'm stuck. In the ice too. I feel like I'm constantly too cold. I feel like I can't even breathe sometimes. I can barely take a shower without remembering the crash. I dream about it. About losing Bucky. About losing everyone. And I don't know how to deal with it most days. The world is so different than I remember, but it's the parts that are the same that are the hardest. The violence and the war and the intolerance and all the things we fought to change. What was the point of it all? Most days, I just can't see it. I wonder a lot how much America would want me as their hero if they knew I'm an angry, disappointed queer man who doesn't give a shit about reclaiming this idea of America some of them have built up in their head.

But there are people. Good people. And they make it almost bearable. I have friends who have my back. I have Peggy, who I never thought I'd get to see again. I have Bucky, who is a better man than he'll ever admit to being. I have Nat, who makes me laugh when I thought I forgot how and who gives me shit and is a better friend than I deserve. And there's Sam, who I'm so grateful for that I don't have the words. Who makes me want to be better. Who understands me. Who makes me feel good on my worst days. And as terrifying as it is to think about loving someone when I'm so convinced I'm going to lose everyone, I think I'm in love with him.

It was easy counseling veterans through their trauma because I was done with my service. I was a citizen again and my trajectory in life was certain. Well, as certain as it could be for anyone. I knew who and what I was. But I've put myself in a war again and now the nightmares, goddammit. They never left but I could handle them before. Just needed a morning run to put everything back into alignment and I'd be straight. But I'm in a war again and the nightmares don't let me sleep.

It's going to be me this time, falling out of the sky, covered in fire like a diving phoenix. In my nightmares it's me or someone I care about and I can't catch them. Hell, it was Barnes once and he blamed me for it. Steve...blamed me for it and I couldn't shake that heavy anger when I woke up. It stills lingers in me.

I'm the man you call on to back you up and if I can't do that then what good am I? I couldn't save Riley, my own partner. I'm no Avenger, no superhero. I'm just a man with metal wings strapped to his back.

I'm going to be the one falling out of the sky. If I'm lucky. If I'm not, it'll be someone important and if I don't catch them, I might as well fall with them.

I don't think I'll ever feel like one of the good guys.

Everyone keeps giving Daisy's friend a hard time but... he's right.

Well, this is marginally better than dying in an explosion.

Is there a Steve Rogers here? Because that man gets me into the worst kinds of messes.

I like it here. It's hot, and the dinosaurs are very strange, but there are worse places to be, I suppose.

I started classes at the University. I'm looking forward to continuing my education. Now, I just need a job.

Dinosaurs?

That is certainly strange and unexpected.

Steve? Natasha? Sam? They told me you were all here.
