@spaceliondad is a blessing and drew some TonyPepperRhodey for me, look at these precious children!!
@spaceliondad: I decided to draw them more 616-ish haha (in a weird timeline where Rhodey is alive and well and we completely forget Fraction’s run happened), but anyway, this was my first time drawing Pepper or Rhodey!
renovation au stevebucky, thinking they're being Subtle (TM): "we need an extra huge custom bed b/c we have threesomes sometimes and y'know what if we found a 3rd person we fell for and wanted to add to our relationship permanently and needed the room??? just a thought exercise haha????? completely unrelatedly do you think there's enough space for a workshop in the basement"/ tony, thinking: is this their way of telling me they're interested in someone else?? pepper: *facepalming in background*
Pepper would be so torn lol. On one hand she’s sworn off of being involved in Tony’s love life ever since the Tiberius debacle when she’d walked in on Ty sweet-talking Tony while Tony clutched at his bruised cheek and looked like he was about to accept Ty’s apology (he still has a restraining order against her, but whatever, they needed to surgically remove her stiletto from his thigh so she won). These guys look like they couldn’t hurt a fly except by accident and then they’d cry about it.
On the other hand… This is two guys who could break Tony’s heart. And they’re pretty big. She could probably defend Tony from one of them but she’d be hopelessly overpowered by both of them. She confides in her friend Natasha. “Steve and Bucky are big doofy dogs and all you’d have to do is raise your voice to scare them. But don’t worry they’ve been gushing about Tony to me so they’re sincere. Stupid, but sincere.”
Pepper thinks about that for a while. “The last guy who mistreated Tony had to have my stiletto surgically removed from his thigh.” She gives Natasha an intense look. “Tell them that.”
(”I am both frightened and aroused,” Bucky admits.
While watching a anime call 'black lagoon' there's a scene of a maid back kick the man in the nuts with a knife in the back of shoe🤣, I sometimes imagine Tony make one for Pepper, Natasha and himself if they need to defend themselves 😊
You have a beautiful imagination. And yes, Tony most certainly does. Tony being a dork at heart that we all know and love is constantly building Nat and Pepper secret weapons heavily inspired by cheesy spy movies and animes. He’ll get defensive when you tease him about it though.
(In fact the reason Clint DOESN’T get super secret spy tools is that he was too busy laughing to see the opportunity the way Nat did. He regrets it to this day. Tony is not so secretly smug about that.)
(Of course Tony has built Clint a ton of cool toys–he just hasn’t handed them over yet.)
(It might happen one day.)
(But considering the rate of success Clint currently has got going I think we can all agree it won’t.)
I’m not really good at writing it as a whole; but *shrug* oh well! It’s basically the Avengers get pardoned and Peter, Pepper, and Rhodey discuss it for a long period of time while waiting for Tony (’cause he always wants to look good)
Peter doesn’t like it when people (The ex-Avengers) began to get pardoned. Most of them were already pardoned, just they refused to come back until everyone on their team was pardoned.
“They’re going to hurt him,” Rhodey told Peter, placing a Uno card on the pile between them. “But why? Why now? Why are they getting pardoned now?” Peter asked, studying his cards and placing a skip down. Pepper huffed, angry.
“Because they don’t care,” she said. “They’re only looking toward themselves. And damn Tony for helping them.” Rhodey placed a reverse card and Pepper pursed her lips, looking at her own cards. “People like them, Peter, they don’t see the real reasons behind anything. They didn’t see why Tony signed the Accords; they didn’t see why Steve left.”
“They just thought ‘Captain America’s leaving! Let’s follow’. Along with Clint following Wanda’s lead, actually. She left, and Clint left Laura and his kids just because Wanda left this place with Rogers.” Pepper placed another reverse and Peter groaned.
They were all waiting for Mr Stark to come out of the workshop. “After all, they’re like mindless puppies.” Pepper barked a laugh. “They’re all adults, Rhodey. They chose their action. So we’ll choose ours. Uno,” she said, placing her second-to-last card.
“Guess we know who’s paying,” Rhodey joked, looking at his and Peter’s three to six cards (Pepper’s really good at Uno, okay?) Peter shrugged. “I’ve got, like, six dollars,” he offered, “if you guys like McDonald’s.” Pepper shrugged. “I don’t mind. Tony doesn’t really care.” Rhodey turned to look at Peter. “I’d suggest getting a pizza. If you do end up passing McDonald’s, give them some tips, or something. Pretty sure the McDonald’s by us gives the extra food to the homeless; give it to them. Those people are precious.” Peter nodded before smirking slightly.
Pepper placed her last card down (a reverse) and Peter was quick to pounce on the second win. He’d placed all his reverses (two) and three skips to which Rhodey looked at him with horror. He grinned at him, brightly, as Peter said “Uno,” and placed the last card (a blue five). “Good job,” Pepper said. “You’re learning.” Tony came into the room to see Peter grinning triumphantly, Pepper smirking, and Rhodey groaning about having to go get pizza.
Tony leaned over his friend. “They deliver, remember?” He asked. Peter and Pepper shook their heads. “No, Mr Stark. Our deal was the last person to lose all his/her cards, or the last person with all the cards, was to pay for either breakfast, lunch, or dinner. We’d voted and chose dinner. He’s gotta go get it, without calling and ordering first. And he can’t get it delivered.” Tony raised an eyebrow.
“You do realize that you’ll guys be so hungry you’ll practically attack him when he walks through the door. Especially when he hasn’t ordered first.” Peter paled before screaming, “Rhodey! No! Call it! Call it!” He cried while a giggle from the couch made him whirl around. “What’s that, Harley?” He called. Harley popped his head over the edge of the couch.
Peter loved Harley, especially when they’d met. Harley was the baby brother; and Peter was going to protect him. (But that didn’t mean they didn’t have their fights. Last one almost ripped apart Tony’s lab.) (Don’t ask.)
“Are you guys done yet?” He giggled. “I want to play, too, you know.” He said. “Yeah, the battle of food is over.” Peter sighed before Pepper began rushing Tony out the door. “Unfortunately, we’ve lost Tony to Pepper needing him to go to a meeting.” Tony’s voice called through the walls. “SAVE ME!”
Eventually, Tony returned and they continued their Uno games. “The Avengers are coming tomorrow. They’re staying at the Compound. Hopefully, they’ll stay out of your guy’s way.” Peter looked around to meet Harley’s eyes.
Me, you, prank? Peter mouthed and Harley nodded with certainty. Peter wanted to rub his hands together because revenge is so sweet; especially if it’s the Others.
ok but single father steve and kindergarten teacher tony au
genius billionaire tony who mysteriously retired from the arms business after afghanistan and became a teacher instead. who everyone thought always hated kids but is secretly brilliant with them. who makes story time and learning to count seem like an adventure.
and of course steve’s kid adOREs tony. he thinks mr. s is the coolest thing on this planet and he talks about him non stop like he’s a combination between a wizard and an astronaut the way he talks about him and the class pet, this robot arm called dummy, and the awesome science classes mr. s does with them.
and there’s parent teacher interviews and steve finally gets to meet the illustrious mr. s and he’s charming and funny and way too handsome to be his kid’s teacher. and tony’s having an internal meltdown because rule one of his contract is that teachers aren’t allowed to date parents (tyvm prinicipal fury he can keep it in his pants ok he’s not like that anymore). but they still exchange numbers for purely professional purposes, emergencies and etc. so steve starts bringing coffee for tony in the mornings when he drops off the kid and the kid getting sick one day and tony calling to check up on him all worried.
How would Pepper&Tony (and also Steve&Tasha) react if they were to learn about Bookman Jr vs Allen fight in the Ark? Because he set himself on fire at that fight and it was a pretty key fight in Lavi sorta starting to have a character development and Allen couldn't even fight against him at all? And they never brought that fight up again in the series, never was Lena or Allen shown to dwell on things Jr said during the fight despite both having issues with being abandoned/trust? How would it go?
*laugh* I don’t think Lenalee’s one to dwell on things said, really - and Allen isn’t one to speak of them.
But it would be interesting, certainly. Pepper’s probably going to become increasingly concerned about some of his more self-destructive tendencies as time goes on, and some of it might even go over Tony’s head because he’s much the same way. (Or maybe it’ll make him reflect on it more? Huh.)
In turn, Steve would be amazingly proud of Allen’s determination to get his friend back, which parallel’s his own interaction with Bucky in CA2. It would make him afraid, but proud. Natasha, meanwhile, is maybe wondering how certain he’d really been that Lavi was in there - and if that had been wise.
If Tony ever dies I want a sad, silent scene were Pepper walks into his lab one last time and the moment she puts in her pass code and walks in, a container comes out of the wall and when it opens theres a suit inside. When Pepper walks closer she sees the words “Proof that Pepper Potts Rescued me” engraved into it. And when Pepper sees this she bursts out crying.
‘The world is black and white, that’s just how it is. Until you meet your soul-mate, and then it’s apparently like a ka-boom and a wa-zow!
Tony’s never had a soul-mate, and he doesn’t really mind that Pepper’s never made him see a whole new world. Well, he doesn’t mind until he meets a certain god who kind of sort of blows his world out of the damn water.’
Am i the only one that was kinda pissed about Tony’s character and Peter? Like at some points I adored them; Peter’s extreme need to please and his constant cute awkwardness, and Tony’s dad attitude but reluctancy to sound like his father.
But when it came to Peter hacking his suit and then not understanding why Tony doesn’t trust him? And Tony at the end being very supportive even though he was ready to leave the kid in the dust less than 30 movie minutes ago!?
And then PEPPER SHOWS UP!? I thought she was dead and gone we had moved on and now they’re engaged why?? Theres no resolve from Civil War? And why does Tony have prototypes of Cap’s shield like i thought they weren’t besties anymore?
I am the biggest Tony supporter but his characterization at the end was all over the place and i just got very mixed feelings from that.
The penis parker jokes were overused and just plain annoying after the second one, like give the school a couple more layers guys or just don’t have him cause he really didn’t do anything for the plot.
Peter is 15!? Thats just plain reckless Tony like he legit gave a fidget spinning sophmore the power of a freight train?! With the enhancements of a super computer, how did he expect this to go? Like I love the man but everyone knows when you give a kid so much power and just let him loose he’s gonna use it to try to be a superhero but without the judgement or training???
Also Peter’s video at the beginning was the cutest thing in Marvel history!
(on Tony and Those Shoes That Are Not Heels, Thank You Very Much): Natasha convinces Steve to do the illustrations for a Dr. Seuss-inspired book she writes for Tony, entitled "An Avenger's an Avenger, No Matter How Smol." Bucky and Clint each contribute choice quips. Bruce is quietly entertained by the entire situation. Tony attempts to burn all the copies Natasha made, but when her boss is Nicholas J. Fury, master spy, there's no way he's able to get rid of them all.
(on Tony and The Shoes, 2/2) When Tony goes after Clint (“You’re just as
tall as I am, buster! Pots and kettles, man!”) for contributing, Clint
snickers and shrugs it off. “I’m fun-sized,” he says. “I couldn’t skulk
in the vents if I weren’t fun-sized.” Pepper snickers, Natasha mutters
about ~other reasons~ why Clint’s okay with his size, while Thor
inquires about the eponym (“Am I not sized for fun, then, noble hawk?”).
Tony sputters and grumbles about how grown men should not skulk in
It totally does not help that Steve draws Tony in his best attempt at “chibi-style” - so cute that even Pepper couldn’t hold in her squees.
Steve was also pretty good at drawing Pouty Smol Tony but then that’s because he states he’s good at drawing Pouty People (see: Bucky Barnes).
“HEY! I DO NOT POUT!”
Bucky’s outraged sputtering was cut off when Steve kissed him until the pouting turned into a smile.
Pouty Smol Tony with his Awesome Shoes was turned into a popular set of stickers….
(God bless you, Nonny, for making me laugh today…)
Hey so my friend just showed a bit of an interest in fics, she had a bad experience with them before and is trying them again. She's ace and doesn't like smut. Do you have any good (maybe some that are longer) canon or au Stucky fics without any smut? Thanks!
(╯°□°)╯ ┻━┻ *:･ﾟ✧ ALLOW ME
ok first of all everything in this post is pre-war and rated and T for teen or under. A few mention sexual stuff, but its all non explicit. Some of these are with one or both ace, but most are just cute as heck/good as heck. I tried to include a wide variety of fics outside of pre war stuff since I covered that in the post I linked you to. I basically am just frantically piling my whole bookshelf into you hands stuttering glowing recommendations right now:
The world doesn’t particularly need saving. The new SHIELD and its few, trusty associates are well on their way to whittling down the list of known HYDRA bases worldwide. No power hungry scientists have made unfortunate discoveries recently, to anyone’s knowledge. Nor have there been any alien encounters in three hundred and nineteen days.
For the first time in months, everything is more or less okay. Except it isn’t.
Steven G. Rogers writes and illustrates the Amazing Adventures series, a set of super obscure children’s books about superheroes. Bucky’s daughter thinks these books are the best thing to grace the earth since hot chocolate. Unfortunately, they’re nearly impossible to find. But when Nat asks for a signed copy of the new book for her birthday, Bucky promises to do whatever he can to make it happen. It all sort of escalates from there.
“Do you think they had him severed?” Steve’s throat seizes on the word. “Bucky’s dæmon. She was big enough that we would have seen her if she was there. If she was still—” “There are other ways,” Natasha says faintly.
Here is the truth about Captain America and the Howling Commandos that every World War II historian must come to accept at one point or another: we will never know everything. We won’t even come close.
So much was lost with the untimely death of Captain America. While the man beneath the uniform sunk to the bottom of the North Atlantic, the myth lived on, only to grow bigger and more unwieldy as the years went by. Now, it is near impossible to tell fact from fiction, to separate out truth from propaganda.
In 2014, Sharon Carter finds those letters in a tin can in an abandoned HYDRA base.
James Barnes leads a busy life as a single working father in New York. But when his childhood best friend Steve Rogers falls back into his life, James will have to re-learn what love, friendship and and family are really all about.
UPDATE: @esfinleo came in and gave us a heads up the the author said on their blog that they were raising the rating next chapter! Its fine and awesome up to chapter 22 but it may become sexually explicit in the future! I’m leaving it here but just so you know)
I love you like rlb has become a well-known, accepted and valuable component of American vernacular. The meaning of the letters ‘rlb’ is unknown, but is uniformly considered to be a statement of a great romantic love, commitment and sacrifice. It was Dernier as first said it. Steve never imagined that something like that could have survived the war and all the years in between. In which Tony goes insane trying to figure out why that phrase affects the Cap so much, Bucky teases the press, and Steve and Bucky love each other like rlb.
Steve craned his head towards Bucky and watched as his eyes fluttered closed. A tiny smile played at the other’s lips and all Steve wanted to do was lean over and trace their outline. Instead, Steve turned away again, idly massaging his chest and pulling his blanket tighter over himself as his traitorous heart beat faster. “Nah,” he said, licking his dry lips and huffing quietly. Behind him, Bucky was already half-way to snoring. “I just got a shitty heart, s'all.
In which Steve is the proud owner of Frost, a semi famous local bakery in DC and despite the overwhelming insistence that it’s about time he start dating, Steve swears up and down he isn’t ready for that. Or as of recently, just doesn’t have the time because of Mr. Barnes – the highly demanding wedding planner on the phone who keeps asking for nearly impossible deliveries and maybeSteve would like to personally strangle him. Maybe.
It’s Just Temporary (rated M but not explicit. in face most of perfect_plan’s stuff if like that. They’re an awesome writer and they focus on plot and angst/fluff, not smut, plus they warn you when anything at all smutty is in the chapter so I’d read their stuff with a touch of caution, but it should be fine for the most part)
Bucky Barnes has no idea what he wants to do with his life and is stumbling from one temp job to the next. Hopefully he can keep his new job at Stark Industries for longer than a week…
“I was chosen for a program. A project. They wanted to make…better soldiers. There was a serum, they injected me with it…put me in a—a cocoon, I guess you would call it. The metamorphosis metaphor wasn’t lost on me, trust me, only instead of a butterfly, all that hatched was the same old caterpillar.” The serum fails, but that is not the end of Steve Rogers. In fact, that is only the beginning.
exactly what it says on the tin. most are under 10k but theres a wide variety of genres so you can basically just read what you’re interested in. nothing explicit but definitely allusions and subtext of sexual content
In which Bucky is the new kid, Steve is the square who takes him in, Tony and Pepper fight over valedictorian a year in advance, Thor remains a golden god, Loki remains a drama queen, Natasha commits an act of vigilante justice, Clint somehow fails to make a your mom joke, Darcy is a Satanist, Jane is a goth, Sif is fine thank you very much, Sam climbs a tree, Peggy says no, Rumlow is a bully, and Mrs. Rogers, Mr. Coulson, and Ms. Hill are all very long-suffering.
Or: the story of the year Bucky Barnes finally learned how to talk to at least one other human being, discovered J. D. Salinger, started to try in school (kind of), got a haircut, landed a punch, almost got arrested, and kissed a boy on the mouth.
Steve takes in Bucky’s betrayed look and Sam’s confusion, follows Sam’s gaze to the pile of mangled fruit in the trash can. Sudden comprehension fills his face. “Oh,” he says. “Bucky found out about bananas.” In which an American icon is mourned. But probably not the one you’re thinking of.
Bucky is a veteran; a year on from losing his arm and the men of his team on patrol in Afghanistan, he has recovered enough to be living in Brooklyn. It’s here that he starts to think about what the rest of his life is away from the military and how he can move forward beyond that, including questioning his sexuality and finding out what he really wants, or doesn’t want. It’s while at the VA centre that he reads about the Gender and Sexuality Support Group, run by Steve Rogers, and takes the first step to working out who he really is.
It all starts because Steve is too dumb to handle his smartphone.
A wrong number AU in which Bucky Barnes doesn’t enter Steve’s life (meaning: Bucky wasn’t born until the eighties, but Steve is still Captain America) until Steve accidentally dials the wrong number. Wherein there is a lot of texting, some advice via Natasha and Darcy, a bit of pining, and a first date in an amusement park. Oh, and on top of being a disabled veteran, Bucky is a professional catwalker. Literally.
Steve and Bucky have to pose as a couple for a mission. Nat insists it really is the only option. She’s checked.
The complication: unbeknownst to even Natasha, Steve and Bucky’s friendship has been rocky ever since Bucky confessed his tender feelings and Steve left him out in the cold. Can asexual, completely-in-love-with-his-angry-best-friend Steve complete the mission and win Bucky’s heart?
The year was 1930. Peggy Carter was on a one-woman mission to uncover the truth of Franklin county, the moonshine capital of America. Meanwhile, Steve Rogers was fighting to keep the family diner running after his mother’s passing. The last thing he wanted was for someone to poke their nose into his and Bucky’s side business. Times were hard. They needed to make a dollar same as anybody else. This was a story about the small people, who unknowingly propped up the Broadwalk Empire.
It’s 2011, men are allowed to marry, and Bucky is dead. The future isn’t all that’s strange. Together in peacetime for the first time since before Steve took the serum, Steve and Bucky struggle to find their place – and each other – in the middle of a new millennium, new bodies, and new dynamics. Or, just because you wake up in a century where everything you’ve repressed is magically okay, that doesn’t make it easy.
“Heil this, motherfucker,” says Captain America, shooting off a rocket.
Steve and Bucky find out Hollywood has been busy since they went away. A historical survey, including but not limited to: one set of exploded genitals, a brief interlude in France, Mel Gibson and other masterworks of casting, eight Academy awards, several dinosaurs, and something Tony Stark has ominously dubbed “the masterpiece.” Art included.
Today, Peter was honest-to-god going to see Captain America himself up close, in person, and not from a rooftop or tiny crevice like a creepy stalker fanboy. Even better, he was going to watch Steve Rogers make history by soldiering his beleaguered way through the most intensely awkward and honestly ridiculous press conference in the history of ever– jaw thrust out and spine ramrod straight. Trying hard to be polite and respectful in the face of adversity. While a bunch of assholes with cameras and microphones shouted at him about Iron Man’s adolescent dick.
In his 2009 book on Captain America comic books, war photography, and American propaganda, Everett claims: “There is nothing to suggest that either the graphic novels issued during the war or the photographs taken during Rogers’ stay with the Howling Commandos can serve as a basis for a queer reading of Rogers and Barnes’ relationship. But even more importantly, there is nothing to suggest that such a relationship ever existed in the first place, and as such, those queer readings are not only misguided, but also libelous” (197).
[from: Lynn E. Anderson, Captain America: Behind the Mask. Steve Rogers and the Contemporary Hero Narrative (New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2012), p. 242.]
In the aftermath of Steve’s return to the world of the living and the battle of New York, the academia and the Internet react.
A scifi AU with a fascist police state, a genetic caste system, a skinny young man who should not be alive for reasons too numerous to list, and the partially brainwashed assassin who shows up at his door in the middle of the night to send the world crashing down around his ears.
In recovering his past, Bucky stumbles upon certain memories he once thought he’d always leave buried: like the fact that Steve and he had kissed as children, as teens, as adults… They’d been in love far longer than he’d realized.
Few soulmates are separated at birth by too much time – but when the distance becomes greater than one year all bets are off, with five years’ difference being equally as unusual as fifty.
Yet the one rule that has never been broken is that the soulmates’ lifespans always overlap.
So it came as something of a shock to the young boy in an orphanage in Brooklyn, New York, when his soul mark came in at the age of twelve and told him that his soulmate had been dead for almost sixty years.
Bucky Barnes is eighteen, a senior in highschool, and totally in love with his best friend. It’s okay. He’ll either get over it or sleep with every hipster twink in college who’s in a band. At least, that’s what Natasha says.
