They only technically stole that car in that they did not pay for it with money and it’s still registered to an old Vietnamese lady in San Diego. She was too doddery and blind to drive it without being a danger to the public, and her daughter practically begged them to take it. Scott got Luis to find them some new plates, also stolen but belonging to a Dodge Ram last seem ploughing into the bay at Santa Cruz in 1998.
They drive for endless hours; Sam takes the first stint driving, then Steve. The super serum means he can drive for longer without a break. Wanda doesn’t have a licence, Bucky only has one arm, Clint drives like a maniac, and there was only room for everyone in the car if Scott stayed small. But this is a regrettable state of affairs when everyone finds out Steve is a great proponent of ‘driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cake-hole.’ They cross the New Mexico state line and Bucky snaps, “God damn it, I am not listening to Trouble Man one more fucking time. If you don’t switch it off, I’m going to rip the stereo out and fucking eat it.”
Then they drive in silence.
This fixes a number of things:
Darcy not being in the wider MCU
Thor just ignoring the shit out of everything in cacw
Bucky going back in the freezer
MCU Clint not being deaf
the fact that there was not a single Roswell joke in ‘Thor’
but mostly I just want Darcy to interact with Steve and Bucky and Sam and Wanda and Scott and Clint and Natasha when she turns up
like they all get out of the Raft and take whatever shit they can get ahold of and Natasha calls them up and is like “yeah I know some people”
Jane doesn’t really know what to do with all these people in her lab
but Darcy does: she gets them doing chores and repairs and DIY. They’re going to have the nicest tiny farmhouse with a giant disused missile silo underneath in the whole south-west.
I distanced myself as I was getting involved with self-destructive things. After treatment, I had to have some time sober before I wasn’t embarrassed to talk to him. Nick says I sent text messages, but I don’t remember shit. The first time we saw each other since that tour was my [2012 Los Angeles] concert at The Greek. We caught up right before the show, then performed. It was an emotional reunion – I got one of my best friends back. // Demi Lovato.
