You’re my king and I’m your lionheart.

Inspired by x || Bigger version here.

So I sketched this out a few months ago, and recently decided to work on it again, coincidentally the weekend before the latest TW ep came out.

I kinda gave up on the background (Stiles alone killed my hand), but I think they look okay with the top ‘previews’ at least o<-<;;

Several anon’s requested: Bottom!Bucky

Includes canon and au’s. There might be some switching so some fics might include bottom!Steve :3 

Size Isn’t A Problem: It’s the first time Bucky has seen Steve naked in some seventy-odd years, and things have definitely changed.

A Better Love Deserving Of: Steve’s kisses are gentle, sweet. They taste like forgiveness, maybe. Love maybe. Bucky pulls away before he can let himself enjoy it too much, but the soft feel of Steve’s lips send tingles of pleasure up his spine.

One Day We Won’t Have to Be Scared: Steve and Bucky are at a gay bar in the 30s, and some guy offers them money to take pictures of them as they fuck. They need the money, they say yes, and pretty much forget about it afterwards. The pictures come out years later. (+Bottom!Steve)

Earn It: Steve keeps Bucky on the edge for hours, because that’s what Bucky asked him to do.

Skin Deep: Yet another failed double date and the aftermath.

Carry Me: Steve’s been de-serumed and doesn’t like how he looks and how weak he is now. Bucky tries to convince him that he’s still attracted to him, and indeed really likes having the ‘old Steve’ back for a while, just for old time’s sake. Steve takes a lot of convincing.

Self-Control Wasn’t Part of the Super-Serum Package: Steve would love to be able to finish a sparring match with Bucky, but Bucky has other ideas about what is a proper use of their off-time. Steve doesn’t argue much.

Big Mouth: And Steve gets this look on his face, the one that means he’s going to clench his fingers in Bucky’s hair and push him to his knees, make him follow through on what he’s been teasing with all day, tongue literally in his cheek, except they’re in public, sitting on a park bench, goddamn green grass all around them and that’s the last thing Steve is gonna do here.

Hotel Service: The one where Bucky is one of the reception staff in an upmarket hotel and Steve’s a wealthy businessman who stays there regularly. They’re involved in a heavy flirtation but neither of them have quite gotten up the courage yet to take the next step.

The Orbit of Your Hips: Bucky’s got a dirty mouth. Steve’s okay with that.

Every Minute of Every Day: He just wants his friend back.

The Undone and the Divine: Bucky’s always liked making a mess of Steve’s perfect choirboy appearance.

Cryogenics: “What is there to know?” Bucky asks although he knows the answer, leaning into the gentle touch. Gentleness is something so unfamiliar.

"You.”

“We’re the same Steve. We’re the Winter Soldier.”

“Then why do I call you Bucky and why do you call me Steve?”

Let’s Be Exposed and Unprotected: Bucky’s pretty sure he should be into getting fucked through the floor while walls explode around him like in that Mr and Mrs Smith movie that Clint loves. But he likes it like this. He likes being on his back with Steve looming above him, big and naked, blocking out the rest of the world.

Our Broken Parts (Smashed on the Floor): Steve is sent undercover to catch an elusive Russian assassin. He didn’t want to do it in the first place; he’s damn certain he won’t be asked again.

The Orbit of Your Hips: Bucky’s got a dirty mouth. Steve’s okay with that.

I Don’t Want To Hurt You: The Winter Soldier wants to have a more intimate relationship with Steve, but is determined not to put Steve at risk.

Highway to Hell: "Cap, you have got to do something about your boyfriend’s reactions to other people. He’s all cute and cuddly with you, but the rest of the team are starting to look like abused sex workers. It’s bad for the public image."

Steve looks up to see Tony stroll into the kitchen, gingerly massaging the dark ring of purple fingerprints around his neck. He grabs a cup of coffee from Thor, who is supporting a bruise on his jaw, and leans back to regard Steve with a critical expression.

(In which Steve struggles with very unpatriotic thoughts, Bucky is a Power Bottom and there are dirty deprived ninety-year-olds.)

The Same, but More: "I know you’re still you, Rogers," Bucky said. "You’re just…" he trailed off, studying Steve closely.

"Just what?" Steve asked, flushing.

It was Bucky’s turn to shrug. “Just more, I guess.”

In Any Language:"I’m right here. I’m not going anywhere and there is nothing you could do or say to push me away, and if I need to learn how to say that to you in every language there is for you to believe me, then I’ll do it."

All Night: Sam had warned him to be careful who he talked to.

"Prettyboys like you goin’ out alone on that side of town and lookin’ as sad as you are get attention from a very particular type."

Prostitutes. He had meant prostitutes. (WIP, Series)

Take Me Home: Steve is Bucky’s center; Bucky can do anything with Steve’s help.

Silver: What happens when Steve wakes up at the shore? Steve feels the shivering, whimpering mess that is his Bucky Barnes.

It’s Been a Long, Long Time: Steve gets Bucky alone after rescuing him from Zola’s lab.

We’ll Get There: Steve’s asthma makes embracing intimacy between him and Bucky difficult in the small apartment they share in a Brooklyn that’s crumbling and cold around them, but that doesn’t stop them both from trying. It’s the little comforts that make surviving the times so much more bearable, knowing that they have each other. (Series, +Bottom!Steve)

I Could Wait Forever: "They treated me like their own personal doll. I let them, of course. I didn’t care what they did to me as long as they helped me find Bucky. Wherever in Europe he was. I needed him. I didn’t expect to find him the way I did."

Grace: When he and Bucky are broke and barely scraping by, Steve resorts to prostitution. As with all things, eventually Bucky finds out, and things happen.

I’m Not Human At All: Bucky is broken, Steve is there to help.

I’m Not A Superhuman: Steve Rogers missed Bucky Barnes. A lot.

Talk Dirty to Me: Steve spends months tracking Bucky down, and when he eventually find him, it’s in a nightclub in Europe.

The President’s Son: Agent Steve Rogers is assigned to protect President Barnes’ son, Bucky - a troubled war veteran with a penchant for causing havoc. Bucky is a war hero but keeps veering to the path of self destruction, and Steve is sure as hell doesn’t want to get fired over this shit. His job is to protect Bucky, even from himself.

What You Always Wanted: Steve and the Commandos somehow get caught by Hydra and Red Skull sex-pollens Bucky to within an inch of his life and makes Steve fuck him.

Take Me Down Slow An’ Easy: Alternate Universe where Steve Rogers and James ‘Bucky’ Barnes are police officers out on patrol. During a pursuit the pair become a little closer than needed, which they find awkward at first. It isn’t until they get home, that things get tense…sexually tense. Then Bucky makes his move.

Through the Notches in Your Spine: Bucky Barnes has been broken down to nothing, and he has been pulled back together again, and this—this is the part where he lives.

“Are you sure you’re ready for this?” Steve asks, stroking the point of Bucky’s hipbone with the pad of his thumb. He is naked and he is perfect and sometimes Bucky isn’t sure that he knows how to want things anymore, but Bucky wants him.

This City Bleeds Its Aching Heart: The one where Steve and Bucky pose as a happily married couple while on a mission for SHIELD, to catch an international arms dealer hiding in a suburban neighbourhood.

I’m Coming Home (but I Ain’t Coming Home For You): The Winter Soldier takes the shot and kills Captain America. Or at least, that’s how the story was meant to go.

Let Me Give You My Life: Bucky goes out in the evenings and comes home drunk and in love, cuddles up against Steve and one thing leads to another. (Series, WIP)

Fire Nation Origins – What does canon show us? 

The misconception that the Fire Nation is mainly based on Japan, and that Fire Nation Japanese elements make up the majority of the Fire Nation culture, has been around for a while. Since I get asked about this topic several times a week, I have decided to make this a feature. Please note that this post is not about what you do in you fanfic or fanart, which is your own choice, but about what we see in the show.

We are going to take a closer look at the Fire Nation’s language, clothing and armor, geography, political system, architecture, food, hairstyles, names, festivals, traditions, weapons and last, but not least, real world parallels.

Geography

The landscape of the Fire Nation is composed from elements from several different regions/countries: Iceland, South East Asia, Mesoamerica and Japan.

Iceland
Ever wondered why the Fire Nation doesn’t look lush and tropical?

That’s because a lot of it is inspired by the landscape of Iceland e.g. Sokka’s waterfall is modeled on the Gullfoss (Golden Falls) Waterfall in southern Iceland, and the landscape around Hama’s village on the Herðubreið mountain in north-eastern Iceland.

Iceland was also the model for most of the Fire Nation’s volcanic landscape:

BRYAN: … I wanted to go somewhere that would serve as a model for designing the Fire Nation’s volcanic landscape. I ended up fulfilling a lifelong dream and visited Iceland … the landscape was raw, rugged, and violent, with a terrible beauty that perfectly encapsulated what I had in mind for Zuko’s turbulent homeland. I shot thousands of photos and edited them down for the background designers and painters … all these efforts helped us to give the Fire Nation a distinct geological flavor separate from every other locale we had seen in the Avatar world. (Art Book, page 132)

Thailand and South East Asia

There are a few times when the Fire Nation appears tropical. Mainly on Ember Island and the Sun Warriors’ Island.

Ember Island’s landscape and architecture, especially the beach (minus the black sand) is strongly influenced by Thailand.

Mesoamerica

While for the Sun Warrior’s island we gotta go to South America: Their jungles and mountains are mesoamerican.

Japan

The Fire Nation’s geographical shape i.e. long drawn out island chain and the volcanic nature of the islands does remind of Japan’s geographical shape.

Things I Desperately Need in Life:

  1. Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston to recreate the story from Norse mythology in which Mjölnir is stolen and held ransom and Loki convinces Thor that the best way for them to get the hammer back is for Thor to dress up as the Viking goddess of love.
  2. The version of the myth they recreate is one in which Thor doesn’t even bother to shave.

i wish more people would appreciate hadley fraser’s amazing acting in coriolanus besides being “the guy who kissed tom hiddleston”

Shingeki no Kyojin Before the Fall Prologue part 1

(In other words Rasuna got her hands on SnK novels and decided to practice her Japanese. And while I’m at it, spam you with short and slow translations~)

The full Prologue can be found HERE

Part 2 | Part 3 | part 4 | part 5 | Part 6 | Part 7 | Part 8
Pages 8&9

A high-pitched sound of a bell resounded through the dark gray sky. The Liberty Bell. This is the name the inhabitants of the Shiganshina District had given to their hanging bell. This bronze hanging bell, located on the top of the 50 meters high Wall Maria, is one of the district’s symbols. While originally meant as a device to prevent disasters, luckily it has never been used in that way to this day.
