STEVE:
He attempted to look reproachfully at Bucky, who knew how much he hated the title, but the grin of sheer happiness that was splayed across his best friend’s face ruined the rebuke before it even had time to prepare itself. Instead, he offered his hand to this “G” and greeted her the only way a man could properly meet a lady.
“Ma’am.”
She looked hesitant to take his hand, and Steve could see that her eyes looked red and swollen, though he couldn’t tell if from irritation or crying. When she finally did take his hand, Steve shook it gently, giving it a light squeeze before releasing it.
“I um…sorry about that…”
She said, as though not only the situation itself, but also the act of apologizing for it were awkward for her.
“Don’t worry about it.” He assured her,  “It’s not the first time this sort of thing’s happened to me.”
Bucky looked a little horrified at that, especi

TONY:
Why he’d chosen to take the stairs, Tony didn’t know, other than some misconception that it would be a more efficient use of time than the elevator (never mind the energy is would cost him in the process). Needless to say, when he reached the floor that held the main living areas, the communal kitchen, media room, study, etc, Tony was rather out of breath. Regardless of this, however, he managed to blurt out the reason for his sudden burst of exercise between heavy gasps.
“Cap, he turned it on.”
Although only one person was explicitly mentioned in the message, at least three other heads swiveled towards him, their bodies quickly ridding themselves of whatever distractions they’d just had and moving to join him. It looked like they were going to all rush down the way he had just come, but Tony, still trying to normalize his heart rate waved them to the elevator.
“JARVIS.”

BUCKY:
They’d switched over to English about a week ago, three days after leaving Istanbul. Occasionally, Russian still made it’s way into their conversation, either in chunks or just as a word substitution. Every now and then they would have a conversation in which both switched flawlessly between the two languages, but mostly they just stuck to English. It was probably for the better too, they could more easily pass off as tourists now that they were traversing the many islands of Greece if they spoke English.
Now that it was out in the open that their main pursuit was to figure out who G was, they talked about it exponentially more often. It seemed easiest to keep things lighthearted, that way it would be obvious when something struck a chord and they needed to take a break. G’s favorite way to do this was by playing a game of truths and falsehoods that she dubbed “winterghosting” after the combination of their names under HYDRA.
The way it worked is th

BUCKY:
Instanbul was a lively place, perfect for two people on the run. The cities were full of marketplaces full of tourists and residents alike and the labyrinth of buildings provided perfect cover from HYDRA operatives. That and his beard helped him to blend seamlessly into the crowd. He’d thought about shaving it several times now, the thick hairs brushing uncomfortably on his lips and neck. G insisted that it made the perfect disguise, however and he sensed that it also gave her some sort of happiness. So he kept it. And he was now the owner of three scarves that he and G traded back and forth to cover their heads. It wasn’t strictly necessary anymore, as they’d left the muslim and Hassidic world behind, but with G’s light hair and complexion they found it easier to blend in; and apparently turbans went well with beards here.
As much as he enjoyed the travelling though, Bucky was starting to heavily miss New York and, more importantly, the people waiting th

GHOST:
Bucky nodded.
“They wiped and re-programmed me so many times I began to lose count of what they took and what they gave back. Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever gain back all of what I lost. But certain things were the same every time; I know that, like they had a list of desirable qualities, a recipe of how to make sure the Winter Soldier remained the Winter Soldier. I’m assuming they used it on you too.”
The duo spent the next few minutes sitting in silence. Bucky seemed to realize that he’d just dropped a huge bomb of knowledge, both great and terrible into her world, and Ghost appreciated that he wasn’t pushing her to make or share a conclusion. If he did, she didn’t know if she could give him one. What he was suggesting was crazy, but given the life she’d been living, was it really that far-fetched? Until meeting him she didn’t even know how to eat. Normal people didn’t sleep in cryo tubes or have their memories wiped

GHOST:
First watch her ass. Even in the short time she’d been with Bucky, Ghost knew that he wasn’t going to wake her back up until it was time to leave again the next morning. Sometimes she wondered if he got any sleep at all. There were certainly bags under his eyes, but she couldn’t remember if they’d been there when she’d met him or if they were a new addition.
Neither of them had showered in the time they’d been travelling together, each day adding a subtle layer of grime to their bodies. Bucky too, now had a cropped beard in the works – distancing him further from the steely man who kept her confined in that small bedroom. But he was still moya zevezda. He kept the arm hidden, and made her do the same, but she knew the star was there.
In reality, she had so many unanswered questions about him. Where did he come from? Why did he avoid using English even though she knew from that first day that he spoke it fluently and often enough to autom

BUCKY:
“I’m going to call you G.” He said, borrowing from the English version of her moniker. He watched for some kind of reaction, hardly faltering when none came. “It’s not quite a proper name, but it’s a start.”
He then pointed to the clothes he’d managed to grab for her, wondering simultaneously what language she thought in. He’d always thought in Russian until he remembered his life before the soldier, because that’s where the soldier began. But if she had no such connections, did she latch on to something else? Perhaps that would help them figure out where she came from. But he was getting ahead of himself; the important thing now was to get out of the country and HYDRA’s grasp. Nothing else mattered until they got to New York.
“I figured you might want to change. We’re not going to stay here long and that,” He motioned to what she currently had on, “won’t cut it here.”

BUCKY:
The room was significantly darker when she awoke, speaking to some time in the late afternoon or evening. He watched as her eyes took in the situation before she sat up, slowly this time as though in great confusion. He couldn’t blame her really, he would’ve expected the arm to stop an assault like that too.
At first, Bucky couldn’t decide if hiding the arm from her was the wise thing to do. She might have been more likely to trust him if she saw that they had this in common. Now, looking back, it would have only caused him more trouble. His arm was a much-needed secret weapon. From the moment he realized they had trained her to fight exactly like him, he became glad of his decision to wait.  He could not subdue her as quickly because they were a perfect match, inside each other’s minds whether they meant to be or not. Only after he switched to a style more like how Thor fought did Bucky gain the upper hand, and still only then because she thought sh

GHOST:
This time when she awoke, the room was full of noonday sun. She noticed immediately that there were no restraints and sprang into a crouch on the bed. It was then that the audible click of a gun being cocked reached her ears. She swiveled to face the sound and found the man from before sitting exactly how he had been before in the corner by the window.
“Let’s try this again,” He said, his voice neither full nor empty of emotion, “I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t try to run this time.”
She looked at him doubtfully.
“Now, I’ll start this time. Hi, they called me the Winter Soldier, but you can call me Bucky.”
Ghost looked at this Bucky like he’d sprouted a second head, or at least, that’s what her eyes said. The rest of her expression was completely blank, devoid of emotion or reaction.
“Oh don’t look so startled. We just met and now we’re getting to know each other. Here, I’ll st

GHOST:
The first thing Ghost noticed when she woke up was the light. Although her vision wasn’t totally functioning yet, she could tell that it was different. The LED lights of the compound didn’t give off this warm of light, but a more sterile, blue glow. The second discrepancy was the noise. There wasn’t necessarily more or less of it, but again, it was different. Strange whistles and honks had replaced the constant whir and beeping of the machines they used to monitor her vitals. Everything had a sort of muffled quality to it as well, like it was coming from outside the room and the air inside the room was completely quiet.
So from the moment her nerves began to wake up, they were on high alert. Too many things were off for this to be normal. Something was wrong, very wrong. She confirmed this to herself when no examination lights were shown into her eyes, no masked faces peering over her and no Heir standing nearby to observe the process.
No restraints had been ne

TONY:
“There’s a GPS tracker in the shoulder now. I’ve left it up to you when you want to activate or de-activate it, but I’m just telling you now that when they come to me – because we both know they will, that’s the first thing I’m telling them about.”
Bucky nodded, Tony had made it clear that he was covering his ass as much as possible on this one from the beginning, and he was okay with that. So long as he came back with the Ghost, none of it mattered.
“Just tap the crease in your thumb, here, three times to toggle it on and off.” Tony pointed to a fissure between two of the many interlocking plates on his metallic arm. Bucky nodded, his blue eyes resolute as he took in every piece of information tony had to offer him. When it came time for him to leave, hitching a ride on one of Stark Industry’s cargo planes, Tony just placed a hand on the man’s shoulder.
“Go get ‘em.”

GHOST:
Even though they’d moved locations over a month ago, Ghost still found herself getting lost in the small corner of the compound she had access to. They gave her two weeks of awake time to try and adjust to the new environment and to keep her physical condition up to standard, and she had one day left to try and acclimate her mind-map to the place.
The facilities were much newer here, she’d noticed. At the old compound there were cracks in the concrete and unique plumbing configurations that she could use to differentiate between hallways, here, however, everything was the same dull grey of steel and lifeless linoleum. Of course, it didn’t truly matter; she was always escorted by two guards, who ensured that she only went where she was supposed to be. Still, it gave her a peace of mind to know that, when she next woke up, she’d have something familiar to wake up to. That, at least, they would allow her to retain between wipes.

He was sulking in his room when Tony found him.
“Hey, figured you didn’t want to miss the party.”
The billionaire received a glare to melt stone, yet somehow continued completely undeterred.
“Just saying, it’s not every day Steve allows us to do anything off the books, especially not something as fun as hacking into the UN’s database, besides, Pepper made snickerdoodles.”
With that, Stark turned to leave, presumably headed towards his workshop.
“What did you say?”
Bucky called, now standing in his doorway and peering at Tony down the hall.
“Snickerdoodles. They’re like the super-soldier equivalent of sugar cookies. I would have thought they had them in your time, but I guess you learn something new every day.“
“No, before that.”
“Oh, yeah. Barton and the lady convinced Cap to stop being such a stick in the mud, so we’re going to get that information you requested at your little lunch

STEVE:
“James, you can’t just tell off the UN security board and then expect them to help you ‘save’ the person responsible for taking out two of their members!”
“Especially since they thought it was you until three weeks ago.”
Steve added, albeit much more calmly than Natasha. Bucky just glared at them both and continued to storm out of the building. Natasha shook her head and rushed after him, leaving Steve to take damage control where he was eventually joined by Barton, who had somehow managed to score a plate of finger sandwiches. Steve just shook his head when the archer offered him one.
“Suit yourself,” He said with a shrug, “but Nat’s right, we’re going to have to figure something else out now that your boy has effectively alienated the security counsel.”
Steve just sighed and watched as Nat and Bucky argued in a nearby conference room, the soundproof glass only just containing their shouts. A few guar

GHOST:
For two straight months the flashes were the same. Waves of excruciating pain, waking up to metal where there had once been nothing, the accidental murder of her caretakers. Her handler told her not to worry about them, that both the images and the guilt would fade along with the pain. She’d finally gotten used to the addition of her arm, although still unsure why it felt odd to have two arms. Her handler, who refused to be called anything other than “Heir,” told her that it was easier for her this way. The wipes were a way to protect her from not only distractions, but from the pain she might cause herself in dwelling on the past.
The past. Heir claimed that something had gone wrong with one of her missions; that they had to wipe nearly everything and practically rebuild her mind. That, he claimed, was why she could know and read both Russian and German, but seemed to only be proficient in speaking English. Thus, those first two months were spent retraining he

Heyo!

So it's a new year and that means new things, right?
I'm proud to say that I've decided to go to college (university, whatever) for art, though I haven't commited to a particular school yet for financial school. Hopefully I will be able to attend The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, of that isn't a reality, however, I will be happily studying at Miami University (both schools have accepted me).

I've spent a lot more time this year on art than in the past.
Part of that is because the demands of my art classes are higher, but I also feel more motivated to create art.
I guess before I would just mess around with things, making or just starting pieces that I didn't plan on sharing with anyone, being that dreaded person who used the work of others without permission in order to grow (if that was you, I apologize. No one saw it or ever will see it without you knowing, I promise. If you still wish to kill me in my sleep for my treason, I understand). Now though, I finish most of what I start and focus more on my own art than just growing my skills.

Just some small updates in my journey as an artist include:
  • Falling in love with india ink
  • More digital work via my highschool news magazine
  • ---(shameless plug) Spark Online
  • Lots of new art
  • Working with metal/jewelry making for the first time
  • ---Playing with fire is an added bonus
  • Defining my "style" more


So yeah, happy 2014!
And that's what's up with me.
