The city made no sense. The entire, country, really. It was like it was determined to make the least bit of sense possible, doubling down in any possible chance for spectacle they could charge for, even if that meant lying through their teeth.

Pietro had been fully aware of it, of course, but it was one thing to know it, and another to discover they had turned the destruction of his home, the death of his countrymen into a [i][musical/i]. "Avengers: The Sokovia Assault", they called it, starting on a small off-Broadway theater, but with enough publicity that Pietro could see an ad for it on one of the city's many electronic billboards.

He immediately set to the place, watching the small, gaudy building with burning hatred. Pietro made it inside from the backdoor, right as they rehearsed a number about the ungrateful sokovians who turned their backs on their Avengers saviors, preferring HYDRA over them. Pietro, before even he realized - much less the actors on stage - had the gangly idiot with a bad white wig pushed against the wall, the rage he felt keeping him from even being able to speak words out loud. It didn't take long for someone to call the cops, and police showed up quick. Well, over half an hour later, actually, but Pietro had been too busy arguing with the people inside to notice.

The arrived, coming through the open doors he had left behind, their hands resting over their guns. When they did, Pietro had already moved on from the brainless actors towards the equally brainless director and writer backstage, and, as they saw the police, they took to walking towards them, calling for them to throw him out, how they had a right to his life, because they bought the rights. Pietro followed them, rather, ahead of them, turning over to keep arguing, until the cop put a hand on his shoulder. Pietro shoved it away before it even touched him, and that made the cop angrier. "Listen, pal. If you don't like it, don't come watch it, alright?"

"This is <my country> we are talking about." Pietro, as usual, drifted between his heavily accented English and the Russian dialect they spoke in Sokovia when he was angry. "<You people destroyed it, and now you mock it?>" That was the wrong way to say it. The cop had no idea what language it was, only that it was foreign. He took steps back, by now far enough that he stood by the sidewalk, and pulled up his gun. Pietro let him unafraid of him."Calm right down, fella.", he said, pointing up his gun. He hoped Pietro would cower.

"How quick are you with that gun?" Pietro said, walking closer to it, and him, until the muzzle was inches away from his chest. "<Do you want to bet I'm quicker? I do.>"

You can't wake up

this is not a dream

The all too familiar sound of sirens had Bucky's heart jolting in his chest, mind immediately jumping to the most logical explanation. They'd finally found him, he concluded amidst his moment of panic as he quickly scanned his surroundings in an attempt to locate just where the sound was coming from.

He was taking every precaution possible to blend in. Aside from his dire need of a haircut, - and he would get around it, but it was just at the bottom of his priority list at the moment, - he was doing a fairly decent job of not being recognized. The issue was, he was constantly paranoid. He was tired of sleeping with one eye open at night and having to constantly look over his shoulder. Governments all over the world were looking for him, and rightfully so, he supposed. He killed more people than he cared to know, but in defense, it wasn't him. Blame Hydra, if anyone. They had turned him into a brainwashed assassin as a result of seventy years of torture. What did he get out of it? A lifetime of guilt. PTSD. A world in which he didn't belong. Was it selfish of him to want a break?

Bucky backed into an alley as the officers sped past, pulling to a halt right across the street from where he was currently hidden. He'd passed that building on the way to the marketplace. Someone must have recognized him, he figured, sinking down to his knees as he suppressed a panic attack. The ex-assassin had grown tired of running; had avoided jail repeatedly just based on sheer luck and an ability to break out of handcuffs due to both the metal arm and the added benefit of his super strength. Really though, he'd trade in everything Hydra had given him for just one day where he could rest without worrying about paying for his actions.

He'd have to face the music one of these days, as the saying went. Chest rising as he inhaled slowly, Bucky rose to his feet, fear sending his heart racing. He started across the street towards the parked police cars, lights still flashing, though the sirens had finally quieted. As he approached the building where the officers had disappeared inside, likely to talk to the witness, he caught sight of the 'Theatre' sign labeled on the outside.

What he saw when he stepped inside was close to the last thing he expected. Gaze sweeping across the chaotic room, and honestly chaotic was the most accurate description of the given circumstance, he caught sight of several officers, one of which had a gun directed at a young man who couldn't be any older than twenty. He stood in the open entrance to the theatre in stunned fascination, steel blue gaze focused on the two subjects. The kid was Russian he quickly figured, effortlessly translating what the younger man said. Thanks to Hydra, he knew a multitude of languages. It came along with the brainwashing, and even though its intended purpose was to help him blend in in foreign countries, he found it often came in handy.

Pietro wasn't afraid of the gun. He had seen bigger, better, before, many of them at once, and they only managed to kill him because he let them. The only reason he hadn't yet taken them all from the police around them, dropped them into disassembled pieces into an useless pile because he wasn't going to let them claim he attacked them. Wanda had asked him to, he wasn't going to antagonize people, much less the police. That was him not antagonizing.

Until he saw him. Long, unkempt hair, the thinnest line of metal showing up from between his jacket and glove, the one person stopping to watch instead of moving on. Even New Yorkers didn't stop and watch anymore; they knew how dangerous it was now. "Are you kidding me?" Pietro pointed directly at him, his arm and hand stretched out straight and accusing. "He's not even in this story."

He knew who the story went, he knew how all stories went, because he poured obsessively over them. They weren't people, with lives (and deaths), they were characters of stories, that could be divided up and serialized, and turned into musicals. They weren't in the history books, they were in the news and cartoons, and in tabloids, most of all. He knew who the Scarlet Witch was, and who all of the Avengers were. Wanda Maximoff was the Scarlet Witch, a well-known and loved hero in America. Pietro Maximoff was her tragic past. Her violent, quick-tempered brother who forced her to join HYDRA against her will, and fight the Avengers, until he finally redeemed himself in death.

He knew of the enemies of the Avengers, of HYDRA, and of himself, and of the Winter Soldier. The Winter Soldier was a story before theirs. "Really, how does he come into this?" He asked the director, who had already backed out sideways several steps, away from the line of fire.

"Who?" He answered, after a few seconds staring towards who Pietro was pointing at in confused silence.
"Him. Barnes. How does Barnes come into it?"
"That's not our actor. Barnes is not in our show, I swear."

By then, all eyes were on the newcomer.
