Warnings: Spoilers for The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger, and also if you somehow don't have a basic understanding of what's going to happen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, i.e., who the Winter Soldier is; maybe like three instances of R-rated language.

Notes: For the lovely sirona_gs because I always always want to give her presents, and she deserves them. Beta'd by the fabulous and invaluable regonym, whom I do not deserve; the story is vastly improved by her input.

This is what happens when you have Bucky Barnes on the brain and you listen to "Battle for the Sun" by Placebo too many times. That song is still my flawless Jason Todd anthem, but it also works pretty well for the Winter Soldier, as it turns out. The story is primarily movie-verse, cobbled together with comics canon and shit I just made up. I've taken some liberties with the dialogue in That Train Scene from Captain America.

Title is paraphrased from the highly appropriate quote from Elias Canetti, "All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams."
