and i feel bad that i didn't include steve in this

No Place Like Home

The future is a different country. Sometimes it’s hard to find home. 

A What If Peggy (with the Serum) was in the ice with Steve AU (Steggy Secret Santa gift for @bisexualhayesmorrisons)

Note: This is… slightly more melancholy in tone than I’d really intended, especially at the beginning, but I hope you enjoy it regardless. Also, this is not compliant with Peggy’s backstory in S2.

“I’ve gotta put her in the water,” Steve said, looking at her as she fiddled with the radio, trying to get someone on the line.

She didn’t acknowledge the words. She focused on the panel in front of her, but her shoulders were tense and the red nails of her empty hand bit into her palm. They had both looked at the instruments panel. It didn’t take fluency to know that whatever Schmidt had pressed earlier had locked them on course to New York. There wasn’t any choice, and they both knew it. The plane had to go down, and the only way to accomplish that now was to do it manually.


She looked over at him, her hair mussed and falling in her eyes after the fighting with Schmidt. She watched him with resignation for a moment. She’d always known there was the possibility that they might not live to see the end of the war, but right now it was overwhelming. She sighed and went still, when Steve reached out to take her hand, gently pressing his gloved fingers against her clenched ones, prompting her fingers uncurling to wrap tightly around his. Some of the tension ebbed away from her frame, but there was a fear there that wouldn’t be assuaged with a mere touch.

“If I could just find the bloody frequency-” Peggy grumbled, adjusting the radio panel with her free hand. There was a pop and crackle before static.

“I’m sorry, Peggy.”

She sighed. “I know.”

Ice stretched across the horizon, a white blanket. There was a moment of regret and pain for all the things neither of them would get to see now. All those plans and promises they’d both acknowledged but never quite made were going to end here in the cold. When Steve let go of her hand to take hold of the stick, Peggy laid her hand on top of his and nodded.

Together, they pushed, sending the plane careening down toward the ice below.

“I guess we won’t make that dance after all,” Steve said, looking at her. He laughed, a sad chuckle that sent a lance through her heart. “Probably for the best, I would have hated to step on your toes.”

Peggy was tempted to laugh. Of all the things for him to worry about- even if it was for nothing. “Far worse things have happened to me than you stepping on my toes, Steve.”

He smiled sadly. “We could have had the band play something slow.”

Peggy woke gasping, a sharp prickle running across her skin like needles. It was a feeling of ice in her veins. She had dreamed of the crash before, the feeling of the wind and the cold and the searing pain that followed. It was never the same twice, sometimes she dreamed of other horrors: of the Schmidt’s red skull laughing as the plane went down in flames and the feel of blood pooling at her feet and covering her hands.

Cipher Hunt Thing (Creepypasta Version)

Rated: 14+ (Language, Kind of Violence, Possession, THINGS GET WEIRD)

Note that this is mostly unedited save for going back and putting italics on certain things. I just wrote straight through it.

It was all supposed to be fun and games. After all, Gravity Falls wasn’t real and this was just something to get the fandom riled up. That’s what everyone thought when Alex Hirsch started this whole Cipher Hunt thing. It turns out we were all wrong.

Oh, look. Another Tony bashing meta that implies that he’s done everything wrong while every other character has made good choices. In the Tony Stark tag. That says that he murdered people when-

Actually, I can’t be calm about this, because really fucking no, stop acting like Tony’s a murderer when you don’t judge other characters as murderer’s when they have actually murdered people. Using ‘Tony’s company made weapons that killed people!’ as an excuse is the grossest thing when Tony had no say in how those weapons were used after they were sold, and nor was his company the only one that made weapons. Not only that, but it was Stane that was selling weapons to terrorist, and once Tony realized that his weapons were being used to hurt innocent people he stopped production. Which was not beneficial to himself at all, Tony stopping the main product that his company sold was a big deal. No other company would do this because that would mean that they might be forced to shut down due to the loss of revenue. And Tony knew that, knew that he would be the one blamed by the angry people inside and outside the company because of lack of product and all the money he lost the company. But he still did it, because he didn’t want innocent people to be hurt. So stop acting like he fired the guns and pointed the missiles that killed innocent people himself, because not only did he not do that, he stopped it from happening when he realized other people were. If Tony was assigned a portion of the blame for his company’s weapons I wouldn’t argue against it; assigning Tony all of the blame is bullshit. He’s only as much to blame as the person who licenses people to carry weapons are. And I hate to break it to fandom, who apparently doesn’t realize; but when people want to kill each other, they will find a way to do so. We have been learning this since the very start of human existence. As a side note, I wonder: does that mean that all Stark employees are murderers? Especially the ones that helped develop the weapons? Are the US military all murderers then, because they are the ones that Tony (not Stane) sold his weapons to? How do you justify that train of thought, exactly?

Also, Tony doesn’t take responsibility for his actions? Really? REALLY? REALLY?!?! Fandom, stop. Tony’s very character is wrapped up in so much self hatred for all the mistakes he’s made or felt that he’s made it’s insane. Literally, Tony’s self hatred is a trademark of his character. As well is the fact that Tony wanting to make up for his actions is often what drives him to extremes to try to make up for them. Tony gives himself all the responsibility for fucking everything, even things that he didn't personally cause. And so does everyone else: Tony is more blamed, more judged for his actions than any other character in the MCU. By both the fandom and the MCU.

I love Wanda a lot, but I call her out on her canon actions that were less then pleasant in the following paragraph, so scroll past that paragraph if you don’t want to see her worse actions being brought up and questioned.

For example, look at Ultron, whose actions people in the MCU and fandom blames him entirely for. Ultron, who he only created after Wanda fucked with his mind using powers that she got from the same mind controlling staff that Loki used to control Clint. Ultron, who Bruce helped him create (but keep hiding from the anti-fans Bruce. stay safe, my dear). Ultron, whose actions only got as far as they did because Wanda protected him from the Avengers, during which time she mind fucked other Avengers, including taking Bruce’s agency away completely. Ultron, who was able to create his device to make Sokovia float because Wanda helped him get the materials for it. But apparently Wanda is completely absolved of guilt for her actions in Ultron’s conception and her subsequent protection of him, because she was getting revenge for her parents’ murder, and apparently that makes everything okay. Anti-Tony stans who act like Tony is a wannabe murderer or victim blamer for a 5 minute reaction to learning about his parents’ murder yet act like Wanda had no blame for Ultron at all, I am looking at you.

I just, I can’t even start with the way that the meta I saw judges Tony for trying to turn to his friends for understanding and support as if it’s him trying to absolve himself of guilt. How dare Tony desire some basic human empathy and comfort? How dare he?! (I am pretty much at a state where I just cry when I think of how little empathy fandom has for this man.)

The Tony & Clint Raft thing? Okay, lets ignore the fact that if Tony hadn’t been the ones to catch Team Cap an armed force with license to kill would have gone after them instead, and if they had Clint might not have been alive to make any accusations. Let’s ignore the fact that Clint has previously worked for the government and has a better idea of how they would react than even Tony would. Let’s ignore that a few years earlier, and Clint might have been part of the task force sent to capture or kill Cap if a task force had been sent. Let’s ignore the fact that it is stated quite clearly that the government is going to retaliate if the Avengers break the Accords, meaning Clint either knew this or Steve chose not to tell him. Let’s ignore all that and blame Tony for everything instead! It’s so much more convenient!

Last but no least, stop blaming Tony for the creation of the Accords. Stop acting like he’s trying to force the team to take blame for his actions, and the Accords are his way to do this. Tony did not create the Accords; the UN did. Because of the fear that everyday, ordinary people were starting to feel at seeing what the Avengers could do and the kind of destruction they unintentionally left in their wake. Tony signed the Accords because he felt that the spirit of them (the Avengers becoming accountable for their actions) was good and because he realized that if he didn’t sign, he would be forced by the UN to give up his ability to save anyone. Tony reacted to a law that was placed before him. He did not create that law. The only thing Tony did was point out that the Accords might be a good idea, and to try to do everything he could to keep the UN from retaliating against Team Cap going against the Accords. But I guess that Tony is to blame for everything bad ever, so of course he’s to blame for the Accords too. Why not?

And gee, I’m so glad to see that even fans who spend the rest of their post judging Tony as harshly as possible are able to acknowledge that he has PTSD. I’m so glad that while they’re willing to give all other characters who canonly have PTSD or other disorders all the breaks, they aren’t willing to give him a lick of compassion or understanding. It’s so great to see Tony’s mental illness acknowledged and then dismissed as unimportant in a few lines. It’s so great to again see someone being unable to feel human empathy for him. It’s just so great.

TL;DR: I saw a(nother) Tony hate post. I reacted to the Tony hate post with my typical pointing out of how the double standard used to judge Tony’s actions is unfair. In other news, it’s a Wednesday.
