Author’s Summary

Captain America wakes up and causes quite the scene too, bursting into the middle of Times Square and turning circles around in wonder. The video plays over and over on the news, which Angie watches then, over and over, at the diner. There’s the gorgeous Peggy Carter, at the center of a storm of suits and Escalades, staring up at the big lights. She doesn’t look a day over 26, and honestly, Angie thinks she looks beautiful. Modern day AU where Peggy is Captain America.

My Thoughts

If you haven’t yet been introduced to Cap!Peggy, let me tell you the reasons you should read (and fall in love with) this story:

  • Bad ass women characters
  • Peggy as a superhero
  • Angie as a modern-day waitress who is rescued, becomes friends with, and falls in love with Peggy
  • Angie introducing Peggy to modern-day culture
  • Peggy protecting Angie
  • Angie protecting Peggy
  • Peggy in the Cap uniform

I could keep going, but really, if you’re a lover of Peggy Carter and wish she’d been given more time onscreen, this is probably the fic for you. It is well-written, well-plotted, and c’mon, Peggy as a kickass superhero.

Can you see it? I can totally see it? While you’re at it, sign this petition for Marvel to give us more Peggy.

Happy reading,
