hells_half_acre: (Bucky)
Today the dice actually rolled something other than a 4! (They rolled a 5!) That meant that I got to roll another set of die in order to choose a prompt from yalumesse's 30 day prompt list.

The prompt: #19. Historical Alternate Universe

Point of honesty: I'm not a huge fan of Historical AUs, probably because I studied history. So, I was slightly at a loss for what to write. I mentioned it to [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch and she sent me some suggestions. One of which was a Steve/Bucky story set during the Easter Rising in 1916 - because [livejournal.com profile] franztastisch knows what I wrote my MA thesis about. ;) She then went on to suggest that I make it Steve/Bucky/Peggy, because it's fun to throw in a British love-interest when you're writing about Irish nationalism... and also threesomes, yay!

In the interest of time, I've made the Steve/Bucky/Peggy ship already established. Also, I realize that it's a bit unbelievable that a woman would live with two guys in 1916 in a Catholic country, but you'll just have to cut me some slack - I'm hoping that I've kind of hand-waved it enough.

So, I present to you my MA thesis in fic form!

The Rising
(Steve/Bucky/Peggy, pre-serum Steve,pre-Winter Soldier Bucky, Historical AU)
Words: 1,776

The next day, they arrested Bucky. )

The End.

*The last line, starting at "if mere bloodshed..." is taken from an editorial in the Freeman's Journal, from May 10th, 1916 (page 2). (Sorry, me=historian, therefore must cite.)

I actually reread my entire MA thesis to write this, by the way, so that I could get things right.
