I’ve seen the Flat-Iron, I’ve seen the Subway,

The Bowery, the Park and the Zoo- 

But Nothing I see can quite Compensate Me

For the Fact that I so not see You, My Friend,

For the Fact the I do not see YOU”

~Kathleen Mathew, 1906

What if...

You were an advanced human, aging incredibly slowly, living in the mid-1900s Brooklyn?  You become best friends with Steve and Bucky and are devastated when you learn they had “died”, vowing never to become close with anyone again, you become reclusive.

That is until, after the events of winter soldier, Bucky uses the information that Black Widow released to track you down and you help restore his memories.
