Originally by [personal profile] cerebral. Reposted on request.


1) The General/Admiral: You're the head honcho, the guy in charge. You have hundreds, maybe thousands of lives resting on you. What decision will you make?

2) The Officer: Not the leader, but you've got responsibility for your crew. What's your specialty -- independent initiative? Insubordination? Or do you let the noncoms walk all over you?

3) The Soldier: Just an ordinary soldier with your pike, or rifle, or energy gun. Your job is to follow orders. But when it comes down to it, when you look the enemy in the eye -- what will you do?

4) Spy: Dressed in civilian clothes, disguised as an enemy officer. Your job is to get as much information as you can, and then get out. Or are you going to sow a little chaos and destruction along the way?

5) Civilian: This is your land that's being fought over. Do you support a side? Do you hide, or do you hold steady in the face of such violence?

6) Other.


1) Battle: In the middle of the fighting.

2) Downtime/R&R: A few peaceful moments, to spend as you will.

3) Sabotage: Something's gone terribly wrong. A factory blown up, a bridge destroyed, an assassination. What do you do about it?

4) Planning: How do you go about storming that beach?

5) Capture/Rescue: The enemy soldiers have you surrounded. Or maybe you're on a daring mission to break your buddies out of jail.

6) Other.


1) Ancient times: Grab that centurion's helmet, form up into a phalanx, and let's go crush those Gauls and/or Persians!

2) Medieval times: Suit up in your armor, grab a lance and make sure to bring along your squire.

3) Revolutionary times: Basic guns and muskets, very little medical care, and very little tactics. Give the other army a few days to dig in, and they'll hold you off forever.

4) World War I/II: Technology is advancing, and warfare is more sophisticated than ever. Remember the trenches, the skirmishes in cities, the spies and the drama.

5) Modern times: Guerilla warfare, modern tactics, modern technology.

6) The future: Ray guns? Space battles? Let your imagination go wild.

7) Other.

[ He's still mad as hell about it. Not at Steve (never at Steve, damn him for a stubborn fool, Bucky's proud of his best friend, always has been) but at the entire goddamn US Army. What were they thinking, shipping someone like Steve Rogers overseas? Are they really that hard up for enlistments? They'd have to be, though. The war's changed now that Hydra's entered the picture with all their awful weapons. Bucky wishes to hell he never saw the inside of that factory; it's amazing that any of the men of the 107th managed to escape. When he thinks of someone like Steve in a place like that--lying on a table with Hydra scientists bent over him--it chills him to the bone. Damn him for being here. Damn Bucky for being grateful, his friend's small, dependable presence curled up at his back at night in a shared foxhole or bivouac keeping the nightmares at bay.

They march hard that day, sometimes breaking through knee-deep snow in a cold Austrian forest, and Bucky keeps an eye on Steve but somehow the little guy manages to keep up. At nightfall they make camp, pitching tents and building a fire from the driest wood they can find, to lessen the smoke; at least it stopped snowing a few miles back. The ground here is more frozen dirt than snow. Inside a tent near the fire, with a tarp and some bedrolls laid down, it's warm enough. Bucky lights a cigarette and lounges back smoking it, waiting for Steve to finish his part of the chores and come inside. When he does Bucky looks him over head to toe, examining him for any hint of injury, illness or weariness beyond the standard soldier's fatigue, his gaze unconsciously softening a little; he's damned proud of him for keeping up. ]

You check your fingers for frostbite? Toes? [ Steve's extremities suffer in the cold. Bucky's mouth twitches into a little smile as he remembers nights in Brooklyn in the dead of winter, sleeping with Steve's hands folded in his and his feet tucked between Bucky's. ]

[ not really every day that a building goes and falls on him. he can't even chance cutting his way out of their present trapped state. one wrong piece taken out and -- neither of them are going to be reporting to anyone any time soon.

scratching the side of his face, he lets his visor down before walking the short, cramped space they find themselves to take a seat. he turns to look up the small cracks above them that show light leading from the outside. at least they won't have to worry about air supply.

his sword remains sheathed at his side as he crosses his arms behind his head. it will now become a race. which one of their teams will find them first? of course, that will depend on if they will survive the other's company. sam is part of hydra, after all. given his cyborg arm and weaponry. his companion is part of shield which puts them in a rather awkward position.]

No one wants to remain trapped with a corpse for who knows how long, miss. I suggest we wait until our respective groups come to get us out of here. What do you say?
