Brooklyn Brothers AU [Blues Brothers style]
Bucky turns to grin at Steve, his metal arm gleaming in the glow of the streetlight. “It’s 216 miles to New York, we got a tank full of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark … and we’re wearing sunglasses.”
Steve nods. “Hit it.”
Fresh out of the ice, Steve “Captain America” Rogers, along with his best friend Bucky “Winter Soldier” Barnes, visit the Catholic orphanage where they both grew up.To their disappointment, they find out that the seventy years Steve has been frozen (and Bucky’s mind not his own) have not been kind to the orphanage. It’s on the verge of being shut down by the city for code violations, and being sold to the highest bidder. Steve and Bucky learn that if they can come up with $50,000 in ten days, the amount needed to get the ball rolling on necessary improvements, the orphanage can stay open and continue to help children in need of homes and family.
Being men out of time and place, they know that they need to do what they can to keep the orphanage open — as it was here that they met and became friends all those years ago. Taking on this “mission from God,” the two decide to get their ‘band’ back together to raise the money needed. However, it turns out finding their band isn’t as easy as they’d hoped … learning new technology and navigating new New York, the two boys from Brooklyn set off to stage the biggest gig they’ve played in years, running into old friends, old enemies, and making new ones along the way!
