Also you're doing prompts? Can you do one where J'onn walks in on Alex and Maggie snogging at the bar, shovel talk ensues
“I really want to kiss you now.” Alex mumbled into Maggie’s ear, trying to get close enough so that Maggie could hear her over the pounding of the bass. She reveled in the way her breathing picked up.
“You don’t have to ask permission, Danvers.” Maggie breathed and cupped her hand around the back of Alex’s neck. She rubbed her nose against Alex’s. “You just have to do it-”
Maggie was cut off by Alex’s lips on her own. She moaned into the kiss, moving her fingers upwards to tangle into Alex’s hair. Alex slammed the half empty drink in her hand onto the bar counter and grabbed the lapels of Maggie’s jacket, bringing her in closer.
Right as Alex began to deepen the kiss and deep voice interrupted them. “I have to say, I didn’t see this one coming.”
“Shit!” Alex said, tripping backwards away from Maggie. Strong hands on her shoulders steadied her.
“Both of you are going to have to file this with Human Resources.” J’onn said, giving the two women a pointed look before grabbing Alex’s drink off the counter and walking away.
So, this is pretty shocking. 234 girls were abducted from their boarding school in Chibok in Nigeria on April 15th. Most of them are between the ages of 16 and 18. It is known that they were abducted by the terrorist group Boko Haram, and it is believed that the girls are being sold as wives, and are now involved in human traficking. It is even known roughly where they are being kept.
There has been very little response from the Nigerian government, in fact even telling international media that a large number had been found when they hadn’t. The Nigerian army is also very inefficient at dealing with this kind of crisis. The Nigerian people have been holding mass protests and fundraising to send out private search parties into the jungle. Now there is a call for international governments to lend a hand, these girls have done nothing to deserve to suffer at the hands of a corrupt and unjust government.
As usual with third world affairs, I’ve seen very little about this on tumblr, and there’s been an international social media campaign to raise awareness about this. Can you imagine in 234 girls went missing from the UK, USA or Europe?! If you call yourself a feminist, then you have a duty to care about women’s rights internationally, and this a pretty big infringement of those rights.
In Mid-April nearly 300 girls between the ages of 16 to 18 who were pursuing their right to education were kidnapped from a government school in Northern Nigeria, for the sole purpose to be sold and married off. The terrorist group who did this are called Boko Haram (which means “Western Education is sin”), whose purpose is too deny the right of education for women and to deny people of “non-islamic” traditions. Let us join together to fight this act of terrorism and bring awareness to the world that we must set an example, that people have a right to education. BRING BACK OUR GIRLS FOR THEY ARE NOT FOR SALE.

imagine: bucky still falls off the train, and steve into the arctic, but instead of bucky being found with the russians he had fallen into the river and went under the same thing cap did and so when 2012 rolls around and cap’s been found and some bloke (probably coulson) with too much money and sentimentality goes “wait, what iF” and starts a search for bucky’s body, because if the captain was found, what about his ol’ pal bucky?
and lo and behold, they find the body. it’d taken a long time, but they found it. and, due to zola experimenting on bucky, he wakes up just like steve
and like, really just like steve, since he panics and freaks out and throws two people through the door even with just one arm, but eventually he calms down enough to listen to what’s going on (probably to natasha). he’s briefed on the way back to the states where someone had pulled steve from a mission and they were gonna surprise him
and natasha warns him, “he’s not gonna believe it’s you you’re gonna have to convince him,” and bucky just goes “oh, he’ll know it’s me alright” which sounds kind of ominous to natasha
and he walks into the room with steve and the other avengers and the first thing he says “did you get a new uniform? i hate it”
“yeah it’s me,” bucky says as he walks up to steve, who is understandably in a lot of shock and confusion.
then bucky just punches steve in the face.
“I WAS DEAD FOR LIKE A DAY AND YOU NOSE DIVE INTO THE ARTIC?!”
“YOU FUCKING STUPID PUNK I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS. were you just like “my impulse control fell outta the train with bucky” and thought crashing the plane and not giving your coordinates was a good idea?! and i thought that time in brussels was bad but you’ve really outdone yourself this time! anD DON’T GET ME STARTED ON THE ALIENS JFC STEVE ten fucking days outta the ice and do you do the logical thing like, go on a vacation or figure out what you’ve missed? nO”
and continues to just rip into him, to the bewilderment of everyone in the room. then when bucky tires himself out and stops yelling the other avengers think steve’s gonna rip HIM a new one but he just goes “bucky” and clings to him
“yeah it’s me you stupid punk you don’t have to blubber all over me” he says though he’s crying too.
and the rest of the avengers are like ????? because they were expecting a lot of things but not this
“You don’t get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done. So all the boys, and all the bars, and all the obvious Daddy issues, who cared? Because I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I’m all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don’t get to call me a whore.”
