Series: Sparklers on the Fourth of July

Wow, so I apparently forgot to post this here way back in October. I wrote "like setting of fire crackers at midnight" for Avengers Big Bang. After it went live, an anon hate thread popped up for it. So, while the series is complete in itself because the companion pieces I'd planned were just "missing scene" different POV takes on some of the events that took place in "like setting of fire crackers at midnight," I'm not really planning on writing the 3ish other shorter pieces I'd dreamed up for this series because, yeah, turns out an anon hate thread is actually a super big motivation killer. ANYWAY, I'm not writing this to elicit any sympathetic comments, I just want to address why the series is listed as incomplete on AO3, and why even anti-WIPers [like me] should give it a try anyway, if Steve/Bucky is a pairing you like. Basically: it's complete, I might someday add stories that will enhance what's already there, but don't hold your breath.
