Has anybody realized how terrible Josh might feel?

Well for starters, he goes through Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners—probably other parties like for Easter—with the Matthews family and Shawn. He’s got his niece, who’s three years younger than him and in a different stage in her life. Then he’s got his siblings, who are full-grown adults with jobs.

I wonder how the kid feels. If you also include the ‘[…]to open your acceptance letter in front of your brother because you love him and you want him to be proud of you’ and the ‘am I the cool uncle yet?’ lines, hasn’t it dawned on anybody how he really feels the need to fit in?

While his siblings are out talking about politics or whatever and his niece is talking about purple cats, does he not feel the need to blend in with anybody since he’s so different? Because frankly, I don’t see guys in college hanging out with 9th graders very often or for nothing. And college is literally crap, so it’s not that easy to make friends when you’re a freshman anywhere—I can tell ya that.

He clearly does so because he feels the need to be ‘one of us, one of us, one of us!’. Cory Matthews is a teacher whose teaching methods have been praised time to time—I even bet Feeny has a picture of him in his house somewhere. Eric Matthews is a senator and the mayor of a town (granted, we could have sworn everything would have burned down). We don’t know what Morgan is doing, HUH MJ?

I mean I’m jussayin’—underneath all the flirting and the beanies, I can guarantee he’s insecure about something. I, err, also sometimes wonder if he knows he was an accident and that his dad didn’t want him at first.

  • naomi is the sheriff’s spunky niece who’s always getting herself into trouble
  • gai is still a wandering cowboy who plays the harmonica. no change
  • jungle jockey goes by the obviously fake name “James Jameson” but if you try to call him out on it he pulls a knife on you. he’s some kind of old-timey criminal like a cattle rustler or a stagecoach robber. probably a cattle rustler bc that fits with using monsters for misdeeds
  • you can always hear him coming bc he wears spurs and they click
  • whenever orb dispatches a monster he says “this town ain’t big enough for the both of us” and laughs

Minor updates to Mason. Swapped him to a newer version of his original skin tone. His hair is totally the wrong style but he’s only here for his genes. The twins grew up without him. The Nulnact religion isn’t big on long term relationships as it limits procreation possibilities. He’s also Bastian’s uncle making he and Ivy’s twins kind of Bash’s niece cousins… my oldschool family trees are so fucked up. 


Geoff: Angel wanted to get the “feel” of the different sororities, whatever that means. They invited the frat over for good measure. 

I think if Ripley wants Harding’s niece to pledge to be her sister, she should be a little more discreet about canoodling people who aren’t him! Especially ones who live with him! And of course Uncle Harding’s a cream puff and can’t fight his own battles. I kept having to put Eric in his place. I don’t know why they don’t kick him out over there, now Leon’s gone - except then it’d just be Desmond, Harding, and Orpheus, and that’s not much of a frat. Orpheus says he’s not that bad; but Orpheus’s standard of comparison in housemates is his uncle the serial killer, so, you know, not the best judge.

A/N - pls don’t sue me if you have a heart attack bc of this fluff!!! don’t forget to follow and request a fic if you want one!

“Come on Barnes, just one ride!” Steve said to his old time friend, shaking his shoulder.

“No way Steve! I’m not gonna throw up like you did after The Cyclone.” laughed Bucky, making Steve smile at the 70 year old memory.

“It’s payback time. Plus, the fact that it’s your birthday makes it even better.” said Steve. Bucky nodded his head, admiring the fact that Steve still cared so much about him despite what he’s done in the past.

It was Bucky’s birthday, and uncle Tony decided to rent out a carnival grounds for the team and I. There were fairy lights hung everywhere, twinkling under the night sky. The smell of cotton candy and caramel apples reeked through the air and provided a childlike environment we all missed out on.

Love in A Time of Experiments (Steve Rogers x Reader)

A/N: @iamwarrenspeace I have no idea whether to thank you or not. I’ve never been so carried away with feels in one sitting. I literally just love this! Funnily enough, I actually wanted to try something like this with Loki instead of Bucky a while ago but I never got around to it. Thank you for the cute request I hope you enjoy reading it! @winterwolf57

Words: 2 726

Prompt: “ iamwarrenspeace submitted to imagine-that-cap:  Steve Rogers x Reader please! Everyone is alive and well, Civil War didn’t happen and Bucky came with Steve to the tower where everyone lives and is been recovering since.The reader is Tony’s niece, her mom is Tony’s older sister who has passed away, the reader also lives in the tower. Now, something happens that turns Bucky into a baby. After a while he starts to feel protective of the reader as well. Almost like they are his wife and child. Something cute and fluffy if you can! Thanks again dearie!”

You nursed your large filter coffee in an urgency to somehow wake yourself up. Even after the many weeks you have spent on New York, you have yet to grow accustomed to the weather. You hailed from Malibu, where you lived with your late mother and aided her in running the specific franchise of your family’s business. You see, your mother was the first and oldest child (that you know of) born to Howard Stark. Naturally growing up in a family full of geniuses and innovators, it was only a matter of time before you too realised that your passions lied with preparing to take over the reigns from the second generations of Starks. 

Unfortunately a few months ago your mother had passed away due to an illness. Although you had been managing the Malibu branch of Stark Industries long before she died, it was after overworking yourself and as a consequence had a health scare, you had decided that perhaps it was time to move. In the end after much nagging from your uncle Tony, you moved into the tower where, under his strict instructions, he ensured that you were only to work the average nine to five with the exception of helping the Avengers with technical issues.

“Really?” You laughed in disbelief at the story Steve was telling you. 

In the time between you finishing your first mug of coffee and pouring your second, Steve had entered the kitchen fresh from a shower after his morning run. Currently he was regaling you with the more comedic tales he experienced in his days with The Howling Commandos. 

You loved talking to Steve. That much was obvious in the way you almost seemed to look for opportunities to be alone in his company. Clichés never appealed to you but in this specific case, Steve Rogers was most definitely the perfect gentleman. He was thoughtful, kind, intelligent and even in his own way, humorous too. The fact that you even managed to gleam a few stories of your grandfather in his more reckless and formative years was only a plus in your book.

Your conversation was interrupted by a loud static boom. By now, you knew living with an entire group of superheroes meant that there were times when there would be attacks on the tower however, living with the equivalent of a mad scientist that was Tony Stark, it never hurt to make sure.

“FRIDAY, what’s the status?” Steve asked seriously, already in battle mode.

“It appears as though Mr Stark and Mr Barnes were involved in an altercation of the scientific sort.” the cool monotonous voice of the AI sounds from somewhere in the room.

After the capture of Bucky, many meetings and a few arguments, it was decided that Bucky would be suited to rehabilitating at the Avengers Tower. Surprisingly enough,  over time, uncle Tony and Bucky had grown closer, especially when it came to the inner workings of the ex-Hydra assassin’s metal arm. 

“I think we better head over to the lab. Who knows what he’s done this time.” you commented with an exaggerated sigh. You supposed this was how Penny felt about her uncle Inspector Gadget whenever he got into mischief.

With hastened urgency Steve and yourself take the elevator down to the lab. Your curiosity was truly piqued, whatever happened to make such a noise from so many floors down must have been big.

Your predictions were not wrong. The first thing you noticed upon entering the lab was the air. The atmosphere was so electrically charged that you could feel the hairs on the very top of your hair float. The second thing you heard was the distinct sound of crying. It was not just any type of cry either - it specifically came from a baby.

“Make it stop. Please. My head is killing me enough as it is.” your uncle said while pinching the bridge of his nose in irritation. You swore you heard him saying something about “being too old for this”. 

“What happened?” Steve curiously asked as he waved the smoke out of his vision.

“I was testing out a new chemical compound to reinforce Bucky’s arm but I may have gotten the measurements incorrect. When I wanted to solder the compound there was a boom and well…” Tony pointed over into the direction of the metal table where you saw a baby Bucky - probably aged a few months old- crying out frustratedly.

Every single mothering instinct you had inside of you, flipped on like a switch. In a single stride you went over and swooped the crying baby into your arms. You supposed he was lucky to have shrunk into his clothes as it was still chilly this time of day.

“Hey there little man.” you sweetly hushed as you rubbed his back in circles and rocked him back and forth gently, “you’re safe now. No need to cry. There there, be a good little boy now. Ssh, nothing’s gonna harm you.”

“Is there a way to reverse whatever it is you did?” Steve enquired although he was totally distracted by the sight in front of him. He had never seen you with such a gentle and loving look in your eyes and it made the super soldier feel something he was not quite sure of yet. What he was sure of though, was that even though his best friend was now a baby, he was now more than ready to protect him - and you for that matter- at all costs.

“Well I for one don’t mind how long you take, he is just so precious. See uncle Tony? He was only just a teensy bit upset.” You cooed softly as you looked at the sleeping child in your arms and wiped away the remaining tears with the sleeve of your cardigan.

Your uncle merely rolled his eyes as he moved around to look for the CCTV footage of the events from earlier.

“Is there anything I can do?” The usually confident super soldier was feeling -and sounded- uncertain. He knew he wanted to help but a situation like this was totally out of his depth.

“Yeah, could fetch me a thin fleece throw? It’s still a bit cold and I don’t want him getting sick. There should be one in the linen cupboard. We’ll meet you in the living room. I’m sure my uncle will want to have a discussion about this.” you instructed as if on auto-pilot; all your synapses were firing on all cylinders.

Not ten minutes later, you and the entire Avengers were seated in the living room. Steve had come in a few minutes ago with a blanket you could tell he had taken a painstakingly long time to choose. As Tony addressed the team to bring them up to date with the current happenings, you could feel the curious gazes focused on you.

“Do you want to hold him?” you whispered to Steve, who was seated next to you. For the longest time, you had felt him focus his attention on the bundle in your arms. Smiling broadly at his hesitation you carefully hand the blanketed bundle over to him and internally squealed at the sight of the tough and strong Captain America with a baby. “See? You’re a natural.”

Your encouragement seemed to give some much needed confidence to the blond haired man and you could see him relax back into the sofa. Every now and then when he thought no-one was looking, you even saw him make a face or two.

Requested by @subject-a-9
Hi! I was hoping I could have a Steve Rogers request? The Reader would be Tony Stark’s niece who always hangs out at the Avengers tower and then after Tony’s party in the age of Ultron, Ultron would kidnap her like he did with Natasha? The Reader is also very shy and suffers from social anxiety disorder. Tony is very protective of his niece and always teases her for having a huge crush on Steve Rogers. Natasha tries to push the two together and then Steve makes it his mission to save her? fluff?
Authors Note: this was cute. also, only a fem. reader since i mention “niece.”


“Hey kiddo.” Tony looked up when you walked into the lab.

“Hi.” Bruce smiled.

“Hey guys.” You looked around to see them messing around with a bunch of, glowing stuff. “What are you working on?”

“Oh, it’s nothing.” Tony shrugged, looking back down.

“Oh come on Tony,” Bruce said. “You know you can’t hide anything from (Y/N) for long.”

You gave off an innocent smile, causing Tony rolled his eyes. “We’re making a friend for JARVIS.”

“Sir, I would advise you to tell your niece what you are doing before she goes to find out for herself.”

“Yeah, Tony.” You smirked. “See, if J. we’re a human, we would cost bump right now.”

Tony rolled his eyes. “We’re working on making another, more advanced, AI, alright?”

“See, that wasn’t so hard.” You crossed your arms as you sat down in a chair.

“Hey, (Y/N),” Bruce caught your attention. “Are you joining us at the party tonight?”

anonymous asked:

wait, who are the new assistants?

“Gunne is Dr. Fol’s great niece, she’s visiting.”

“we shouldn’t have kids in the lab…”

“We used to let Papyrus is more, aheh.”

“that was different!

Also, for those of you who are salty about Joshaya and are quick to throw around the word “pedophile”, let me remind you of a couple things (oh, and don’t worry, it won’t take long so you can go back to bashing ships, flooding tags, and licking your lucaya-isn’t-happening wonds)

1. Josh has consistantly made it clear that Maya is too young for him.

2. Josh has not seen and/or interacted with Maya for a while since their last interaction that was almost a couple months (close to a year) prior to Ski Lodge, meaning that he has the same interpretation of Maya as he always had: his niece’s little friend that he doesn’t take seriously.

3. Josh has a seen a new side of Maya from this trip with how she handled everything with Riley and Lucas. He has seen that she has matured and he admits that he wants her in his life-BUT NOT AS A GF IMMEDIATELY because of the person she is. He even states that he let age get in the way of missing out on her friendship. 

4. Even after he acknowledges how he feels about her, he is not in any rush to make it a romantic relationship. Although Maya is adamant for that, he still respects the age difference and the place that both of them are in their life. He even says “you live your life” but still lets her know that he will be there.

5. I have seen a lot of things about “grooming”-and how was Josh grooming Maya? By saying that he liked her? By holding her hand? By complementing her? Everything that Josh said to Maya about her friendship with Riley and who she is as a person, has been said to Maya by almost everyone in the show. Even Lucas, who at one point, reciprocated romantic feelings for her. The same reason that Josh said he liked Maya are the same ones that Lucas had for liking her. 

At the end of the day, the main thing is about the age, however that is addressed and dealt with on Josh’s part-He is no rush to be in a romantic relationship with Maya. MOST IMPORTANTLY, he does not put a a set date on when they can be together. Not once does he say, “when you are eighteen” or “when you graduate” or “when you go to college”. He doesn’t ask that she wait for him, nor does he promise her that he will wait for her. 

In closing, Joshaya is adorable, stop tagging hate, ship and let ship.

Healthy Relationships*

My parents will be married for 36 years this December. Yeah it’s July, I’m pretty confident they’ll make it to “death do we part”

My parents have a pretty neat story.

My mom was working in Chicago with my dad’s ex girlfriend. She set them up on a blind date. Their first date together was at a movie theater. They saw The Big Chill and to this day, it’s still their favorite movie.

My dad proposed 6 months later. It was at his niece’s wedding. He likes to joke that my mom kicked the chair out from underneath him and started screaming “I do!”

They got pregnant before me, but miscarried. I was born 6 years and a month after they were married. My mom says that if it wasn’t for the morning sickness she wouldn’t have even known she was pregnant because I hardly moved at all (makes a lot of sense to me now that I’m older because I’m a huge homebody and very lazy). She wasn’t alone though, my dad had sympathy pregnancy the entire time my mom was pregnant with me.

They hardly ever fought and still rarely fight. My dad and I have the same sense of humor and we can be a bit much to deal with sometimes. My mom likes to not listen to everything you’re saying (she laughs at punchlines she hears wrong). They can occasionally can get under each other’s skin. The few times growing up they did actually argue, was over something stupid I had done and how to handle it. Otherwise, I had a pretty fairy tale upbringing.

I consider my parents soul mates. Which is funny because I told this to my mom and she doesn’t think they are. However, I personally find it hard. Not meaning that I ever wished my parents got divorced, it’s just… It’s hard to live up to.

I’m not saying this to sound ungrateful, but it is something that I’ve been dealing with for a very long time. I’m 30 years old and I’ve been single through all 30 of them.

By the time I hit high school, every friend I had was in a single parent home. The friends I made in high school were already in a single parent home or their parents had already remarried, except one.

Throughout high school, I had the unique perspective of actually being a 3rd party outsider. Ironically, I was always the one in the group everyone would go to for relationship advice.

I have watched friend after friend go through one awful relationship after another. I’ve watched friend’s failed engagements and marriages. I’ve watched friend’s boyfriends walk out on them after the birth of their child. I’ve watched, not literally, a friend get pregnant just because another friend in our group did.

I’ve spent the past 20 years watching my friends and their parents not doing some things that my parents have always done.


If you don’t like something your significant other is doing than talk to them about it. I don’t mean in a rude or condescending mannor. I mean to open an adult dialogue about the things you are not happy about. You cannot be mad at a person, not tell them why, and expect things to change.

“S/he should just know.”

No, they shouldn’t. No one knows what is going on inside of your head but you. You need to open your mouth and use your words. If you think your partner should know you inside and out, we’ll how can they? You’ve never actually told them completely about yourself.


Just like you need to communicate more, you need to listen to them when they talk to you. If you’re always worried about what they do to make you happy or mad, but never talk the time to listen to their problems or the things they like, why aren’t you dating yourself?

Stop Feeling Obligated.

Your role in your relationship should be the role you want. If you want to do things for your significant other, do it! The problem is feeling obligated to do it. Obligation, especially when you feel like you aren’t getting anything in return, leads to resentment. Relationships take work, they aren’t a job. If you feel like this is your job and you have to do it, neither of you will be truly happy.

Be a Little More Independent.

If you can’t be happy by yourself, how can you ever expect to be happy with another person? It doesn’t take another person to complete you. It takes you. If you can’t function alone, you can’t function with another person. That person doesn’t make you. That person doesn’t define you. In a very odd way to put it, you’re ice cream. Completely wonderful and amazing on your own. You don’t even really need anything else, but sometimes you’re with some whip cream, caramel, hot fudge, or pie. Sometimes your smothered by nuts (I mean the crazy kind not the genital kind). Honestly, you can be into all of that at once. The point that is, you’re great on your own. You’ve just got a little extra something when your with someone else.

Fall in Love with People, not the Idea of Them

My last advice would be to be picky, but I’m a long way into being picky, but it is a struggle and a life choice. However, raising the bar a little higher might be better than you think. It’s easy to think you can change people. It’s harder to actually do it. Instead of looking at someone and projecting your ideal relationship onto them in your head, turn around and walk away. While your spending your time trying to turn someone into someone they’re not, your ideal mate may have just passed by. I never understood why you would want to change someone when you can find someone who’s already the person you want them to be. Another reason I’ve been single for so long. I’m living example that it’s easier said than done, but I don’t want to waste my life with someone who’s not the person I want them to be.

Pick Your Battles.

You’ve found Mr/s. Right. They are bound to do things that will drive you nuts, but you’re going to do the same to them. It’s okay to get irritate about things. It’s not okay to have screaming matches over unwashed dishes. If you’re finding this happening a lot, then maybe you just aren’t meant to be. Maybe one, or both of you, just aren’t ready for this or aren’t meant to be together.
Yes, it’s annoying when this is the 20th time you’ve had to ask them to take out the trash, but if you’re flying off the handle over small things like this everytime then you need to reevaluate your relationship.

Communication #2

If you haven’t noticed yet, the majority of these can be easily solved by communication. You may find that you both agree that it’s just better to move on.

*there is a group of people that this advice will never, ever help you with. If you are in an emotionally or physically abusive relationship or with an irrationally jealous partner, please get help. Talk to your parents, talk to the police, talk to your friends. Just, please get help.
