but the winter theme is amazing

Beggin' For Thread (Bucky Barnes x Reader) Request! ❤

A/N: To the lovely anon that requested this brilliant idea!! I loved writing this because boxers in general are super comfy and look hell sexy, too. Especially on Bucky Barnes! :D Hope you guys like it!! ENJOY! - Delilah ❤

Beggin’ For Thread: Reader steals some of Bucky’s boxers during laundry day. But when he goes to her for comfort from a thunderstorm he gets a surprise.

Warnings: S M U T! Biting. Fluff. Comfort.

You usually did the laundry on Sunday’s.

But as Steve stood before you holding two laundry hampers filled with his and Bucky’s dirty clothes and a sheepish smile on his face, you couldn’t help but giggle at the man. You didn’t mind it though, not one bit. In fact, you were more than happy being given the chance to do anything but sit around and wait for your ankle to heal.

A couple days ago, you managed to fracture your ankle. Fury flat out refused to let you go on any missions, including the one you’ve been training for since last month. Sitting around while your friends got to go kick Hydra ass wasn’t in your nature. So you savored any small tasks that were given to you. Even if that meant doing the laundry every day this week.

On the bright side, it gave you a chance to see the team’s embarrassing underwear collection.

Wanda secretly had a Hello Kitty thong collection, which was either the cutest or funniest thing on this planet. You still couldn’t decide which, maybe it was the latter. She nearly imploded when you brought it up to her one training session. You wondered if she wore them for Vision.

Sam secretly had a couple pairs of hot dog boxers. You were practically on the floor with laughter whenever you found it the first time. You at least expected some Captain America undies in there, but hotdogs? That was completely unexpected.

Nat’s underwear collection consisted of mostly black lace, with the exception of a couple cotton boy shorts in the mix. You were actually kind of surprised that she didn’t own at least one Black Widow themed thong, but what she DID have raised some eyebrows. Besides her underwear and other clothes, there was an American flag themed lingerie set. And if it was in the dirty laundry that must’ve meant it had been recently used. Interesting.

Tony’s underwear was by far the most bizarre thing you’ve ever seen. He preferred briefs, but that wasn’t what shocked you. They had little Winter Soldier’s printed on them. You couldn’t NOT take a picture of that. After all the teasing, Tony was still a softie for the man.

But out of everyone’s underwear, you liked Bucky’s the best. They weren’t anything special. They all consisted of plain black boxer shorts. They didn’t look amazing, but they surely felt like it when you ran your hands along the material. Although it was wrong, you really did need some new sleeping shorts.

The stress of your injury and work caused you to gain a couple pounds onto your hips –nothing drastic, but it was enough to make all of your jeans and shorts feel like they were made of metal against your tummy when you wore them.

Staring down at the boxers in your hands, you placed them into your laundry hamper and hurriedly walked to your room. You’d only wear them tonight, that’s it! Then tomorrow, you’d just say they got mixed up in your laundry. Voila! Nothing to be worried about.

xxxxxxxxx

Bucky stood outside your door, debating internally whether to knock or just let you rest.
He was heavily considering just going back to his room, but the thundering…he couldn’t sleep through that. You offered to help comfort him during the storms whenever he needed it.

The news showed that the storm would roll in around 3:30 am, which was fine by him since he was usually up by then from the nightmares, but after the latest mission he needed some rest. His body felt so heavy, but his mind was racing from the constant shaking of the building and the sound of thunder.
With a heavy sigh, he knocked gently onto the door.

“Y/N?” he asked, opening the door slightly. He peeked his head in, squinting his eyes in the darkness. If it weren’t for the sudden lightning strike, he would’ve have seen you. And boy was it a sight to see.

You were lying on your stomach, with the covers across your waist. You looked absolutely gorgeous like this and he couldn’t allow himself to ruin that by waking you for his own selfish gain. Bucky turned around and turned the knob as quietly.

“Bucky?” you called out, your voice still laced with sleepiness. “Where are you going?”

He turned around, staring at your upper body, which was only covered with a black bra. He was instantly reminded about his mom’s scolding as a child. “It’s awfully rude to see a woman without clothes that ain’t your wife, James!” she would say. Jesus, she would probably give him a smack upside the head if she were here right now. But this was an entirely new era with new rules, right?

Bucky avoided your eyes entirely, focusing on the random stack of books on your desk instead.

“I couldn’t sleep,” he mutters, a blush beginning to grow on his cheeks. “The storm woke me.”

Catching the hint, you leaned over the side of your bed and grabbed a random shirt lying around and slipped it back on. If Bucky was the man he was in the 40’s, he would’ve been staring shamelessly. But he’s not that man anymore. He respected you and your privacy.

You patted the empty space next to you, smiling tiredly. You could barely keep your eyes open yourself. Bucky made his way over to you and slid into the warmness that was your bed. Somehow, despite being littler in size and shape, Bucky felt safe with you. As inane as it seems, you made him feel like nothing could ever happen to him.

You nuzzled into the pillow and looked up at him. “I can’t believe this thunder,” you yawn, looking out the large window in your room. As if on cue, another large clap of thunder caused the entire building to shake. Bucky filched harshly and clinged onto your smaller frame. You could feel him trembling slightly, his heart racing wildly.

You shifted so that you were on your back and gently placed his arm around your middle. Taking the hint, he rested his head onto your chest.

“My mom used to say that the lightening was actually a giant camera in the sky that Mother Nature used to use,” you say softly into his ear, running your hand through his hair slowly. “And the thunder was just the sound it made each time she took a picture.”

Bucky smiled. The vibrations from your chest as you spoke filled him with ease.

“My parents used to say it was just rain.” He snorted, causing you to giggle. You were glad that he still had a sense of humor.

You felt his flesh hand against the skin of your stomach that wasn’t covered by the shirt. His calloused fingertips brushed against the flesh lightly, tracing unknown patterns into the skin.

You were nearly asleep again, when you felt the waist band of the boxers you wore being pulled away from your waist and then suddenly being snapped back onto the skin, creating a loud sound.

Your eyes shot open, brows drawn together in confusion. But only to be met with Bucky looking at your with a smirk. “So this is where my favorite boxers went.”
Uh oh.
“I swear I’m not some creepy underwear thie-“
Before you could explain yourself, Bucky’s mouth was on yours. You moaned into the kiss. His tongue found its way to yours with ease. You could never find it in you to deny him anything.
You both shifted so that you were straddling him. All while never breaking the kiss. Bucky’s lips were a little chapped and raw from the many times he bit them, but to you they were perfection.
Bucky grinded against your clothed core, his member rubbing against the material. You would’ve never thought of trying this, not in a million years. As odd as it was, the sensation was mind blowing. You rolled your hips back in time with his, enjoying the feeling of his member sliding along the thin material. The small crotch area began to dampen from a mixture of your wetness and his pre come, making it even better.

Bucky’s metal hand found its way to the back of your bra. You could hear the mechanical shifts as it worked the hooks expertly, unclasping it within seconds. His blue eyes dilated fully as they focused on your chest. His flesh hand let go of your hip and traveled along the curve of your breast. His fingertips gently pinched your nipple, causing you to shiver. It was like you were doing this for the first time all over again. It certainly felt like it, given how your body reacted to desperately to his touch. All of your self-control went right out the window and into the rain.

The thunder struck again, but this time, Bucky didn’t even acknowledge it. His eyes were glued to your chest. Watching it with hunger as you rocked your hips into his. You couldn’t wait any more, you needed him now.

You slid the material of the boxers down your legs, kicking them off the bed and onto the floor. Bucky’s hands gripped your hips gently and guided you onto his lap once again. The wetness from your core began to slide down your thighs, drenching his as they rubbed together.

Bucky let out a small groan, throwing his head back onto the headboard with a thud. Thinking back on it, none of the previous girls could compare to you. None of them ever got this wet for him, yearned for him like you did. You were a goddess and he wanted to make sure you knew that.

You aligned yourself with his member, the feeling of his tip teasing your folds sent a wave of excitement through your body. You were about to have sex with Bucky. It wasn’t the ideal way you’d imagined it would happen, but it was better than the backseat of a car or what he was used to. You could tell by the way his hands shook with excitement as he ran them along the flesh of your hips that he knew this, too.

Before you could do anything, Bucky gripped your chin with his thumb and index finger and forced you to look at him. It wasn’t rough by any means, but he was desperate.

“Do you love me?” he asks, staring into your eyes. You felt like he was looking into your soul. To say the question threw you off guard was an understatement. Did you love him? But most importantly, did he love you?

“I do,” You say truthfully, before sinking down onto his length. Bucky let out a curse, his head falling back onto the headboard. You let out a whimper as he filled you finally. It had been a while for you. Your last lover wasn’t anywhere near as big as Bucky. He wasn’t even on Bucky’s level when it came to anything, really. Bucky Barnes was one of a kind.

“Fucking Christ, doll,” he groaned, his hands dug into your sides. His eyes fluttered shut as you began gently bouncing. He let out little grunts each time your hips connected with his. The sounds of skin against skin filled the room, along with the dueling sounds of your cries of pleasure and the booming sound of thunder.

Your arms wrapped around his neck, using it to balance yourself as you bounced faster onto his cock. He filled you up in ways you’ve never thought you could be filled. And it felt so right.

Bucky’s mouth hung open as you began circling your hips, providing him with a deeper angle.
You could feel his cock throbbing against your g spot each time you rocked a certain way.

Sending your certain pace, Bucky began thrusting into you, his hands grabbing your ass forcefully.

"Oh my god, Bucky!” You screamed, your head falling back. The feeling of him hitting that special bundle of nerves repeatedly made your orgasm near.

“You like that, prințesă?” He asks, thrusting faster into your heat. You cry out at his words. “You feel so fucking good around my cock.”
“I’m gonna come!” You shout, digging your nails into his shoulders.

Bucky’s lips went to your throat and sucked harshly. With a scream of his name, you came. Your legs shook with pleasure. With a growl, Bucky followed suit, coating your walls with come.

You collapsed against each other, completely exhausted. The storm had finally stopped and you could see the pinkness of the rising sun in the sky. It illuminated your entire room with it.

“I love you,” Bucky confessed, resting his chin on your head. His flesh hand rubbed small circles into your back. You grinned into his shoulder.

“I think I figured that out when you came inside me.” You smirked.

He let out a tired laugh. “No, I’m in LOVE with you, Y/N. really.”

You placed a small kiss onto the scarred flesh of his shoulder, right above the metal part.

“I know, James,” you giggle. “I think the entire floor knows, too.”


-FIN ❤

P.S. Sam wears hot dog undies, pass it on!!

SNS-Week 2017

my highlights list of Owl City songs

maybe you’ve only heard like “fireflies” and you dont have shit taste and aren’t a coward and so you’ve always hoped i’d make a list of imo extra standout owl city songs; maybe i just wanted to make something like this list even though i didnt try that hard to cut it down and it would change every day and i dont think i dislike any of his songs and could give reasons why i especially like some element of pretty much each of them

Assuming Everyone’s Also Heard: VANILLA TWILIGHT (Ocean Eyes), GOOD TIME (The Midsummer Station)
they’re both amazing. vanilla twilight is intense and good for when you’re looking at a nice sunset and feeling brave. shaq is in the music video. that carly rae jepsen and adam young happened to team up was a great move by whoever initiated it, and good time is iconic, and there’s a version where carly rae jepsen is also singing the chorus and its better but i dont really know how to search for it in particular because its otherwise identical

***HELLO SEATTLE*** (Ocean Eyes)
this was on the radio too so it couldve gone in the above section but it needs its own. im not sure i’d say this is officially my favorite owl city song but if someone hadnt heard anything by owl city this is the one i’d choose to represent his entire vibe and be the first impression. and you’d think nobody could possibly remix it but adam young himself did and its fantastic and relatable even though the only lyrics are the occasional words “hello seattle.” technically the first version of this song is on the album “of june” and theyre both good but i like the ocean eyes version best

DESIGNER SKYLINE (Of June)
the most upbeat song on the album probably. adam young is very very good at lyrics and some elements of this include his imagery, rhythm, alliteration, wordplay, and general ability to make the words in a song both euphonic in the sound along but also be very Pretty content wise. ok im most serious about how good he is with lyrics so maybe i’ll be more concise after this one

FUZZY BLUE LIGHTS (Of June)
owl city songs aren’t depressing or even really Sad even when they’re sad (w/ some exceptions…cough silhouette) but they’re good if you are / have been a Sad Person Who Lives In Their Head because thats what a lot of the songs are about / the perspective theyre from. this one sounds like that and also like an overcast day

***IF MY HEART WAS A HOUSE*** (Ocean Eyes)
the Best love song of the whole discography imo. it goes hard as fuck. i don’t date but for the duration of this song i have a gf/bf/nb-f

THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG (Ocean Eyes)
one of the best and another one of the best love songs. im especially partial to the winter theme now o course. this super cool thing happens in the middle with amazing lyrics and this volume effect. the instrumental versions of this and if my heart was a house are also killer

ANGELS (All Things Bright And Beautiful)
adam young loves jesus a whole lot; this song is about literal christian angels. i love the alliteration of the lines “in the dust on the cellar staircase / a pair of footprints followed me / i saw a flicker in the fake fireplace”. not many owl city songs are from both an upbeat perspective AND have upbeat music, and this one’s chorus really goes for it. adam y.’s pretty excited about jesus stuff i think and so when he channels that in songs especially about jesus, it’s pretty energetic. but for the most part his songs arent overtly christian save maybe some passing references, so if thats a concern dont worry

***GALAXIES*** (ATBAB)
for example, this one definitely has a jesus line. but this is just one of the references to an unspecified “he” which means it could also just be interpreted as gay. (owl city belongs to the gays btw) and this really is a song to go ham to and listen to it with stereo speakers because one of my fave parts relies on that. the intro is a bit jarring because the outro of “january 28, 1986” is meant to transition into this one

DEMENTIA (The Midsummer Station)
i’d put this as a highlight but recognize its coz its a personal fave. it sounds like it would be incredibly depressing of course but it has nothing to do with actual dementia thank god. it’s a love song and very upbeat in both sound and content. i’m hugely partial to the lyrics, especially the pairs “every light in the night flickered in and out / every bone in my back shivered up and down”; “every voice in my head shouted yes and no / every freight train of thought fought to stop and go”; “every tear in my eyes dripped and wouldn’t drop / every disc in my spine shook and couldn’t stop” and “every hand let me go that i tried to hold / every warm-hearted love left me freezing cold”

KISS ME BABE, IT’S CHRISTMAS TIME (single)
he has a bunch of random christmas singles and this ones the best. the titles ridiculous and i love it, and the song isn’t really about anything and i love it. it is such a bop. “peppermint winter” and “humbug” are the other best xmas ones

SHOOTING STAR (Midsummer)
half the songs on this album are summery dancey songs about having fun with other people (usually owl city songs are about being lonely or having fun with one other person tops by cloudwatching, so this album is unusual in that regard and rocks out a bit which is also unusual as per owl city’s tendency to sound really dreamy or otherwise fairly light. it bothers people who are in the “the old stuff is better” camp of everything) and the other half are upbeat summery songs that are encouraging and tell you you’re a good and special person. this one is the latter and a lot of fun. i like the lyrics and melody of the lines “fan a flame so hot it melts our hearts” and “let your colors burn and brightly burst / into a million sparks that all disperse / and illuminate a world that’ll try to bring you down” (but not this time)

GOLD (Midsummer)
same category song as above (title refers to “i know you’re gold”). it’s great and sung to a person about to go off and do something and you’re telling them they can totally do it because they’re great. i maintain that one of the Owl City Signature Moves is The Affectionate Sigh: he’s very good at working in words sung with a rising/falling tone, a la a sigh, and its an upbeat delivery not like a “im sad” sigh. when it happens in this song is my favorite part of the whole thing, at the end of the line: “you’ll never be far, i’m keeping you near, inside of my heart, you’re he^re”

BEAUTIFUL TIMES (Ultraviolet EP)
the songs on ultraviolet all have a super cool sound, kind of mixing the more loud/layered/noisy quality of midsummer station with the more introverted vibe he usually has, and are all kind of about being stressed and sad but looking to something or someone and kind of seeing a chance to feel okay. “this isn’t the end” is completely about a girl who’s dad kills himself but it has the really good line “you fight to survive cuz you made it this far” and otherwise has a technically uplifting end but without much of the “you shouldnt kill yourself because life is magical” bs which is useless and irrelevant imo but instead the “life is chaotic and you cant say the future is going to be good but it exists and meanwhile you’re not dead yet” which is an infinitely more thoughtful approach. but anyways, about beautiful times: its also about being happy but usually being really sad (“this fight of my life is so hard (so hard, so hard) but i’m gonna survive, oh oh these are beautiful times,”) and also isnt very patronizing about the subject (the prospect/aspiration of feeling happy when you’re a Sad Person) and frames everything in having had damagingly negative feelings while still being overall positive. i really like the way he sings into the first few verses with an echo of what will be the first couple of words, overlapping slightly and growing in volume before taking you right into the actual start of the verse. this is the most upbeat sounding song of the EP imo

THUNDERSTRUCK (Mobile Orchestra)
the intro alone is killer. one of the most Go Hard to songs of the owl city discography. proudly carries the tradition of singing about ghosts (see: plant life, a fun-to-sing-along-to song all about an actual haunted house)

BACK HOME (Mo Orch)
this album has a lot of sounds that, while familiar, are different from any of the other albums, like this one which is very very country. it goes hard as fuck. it uses the word “fireflies” for the first time since fireflies. i love it

CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT YOU (M.O.)
personal fave of the album is mostly why this is here. as the title suggests its a dramatic love song, i love how pumped the chorus is and the way the outro sounds. Love To Sing Along

***WHEN CAN I SEE YOU AGAIN?***
this is peak “happy music, sad lyrics” even though thats everywhere in owl city music, its pretty rare to find songs that are straightforwardly happy. this song is a banger and lyrically crushing. i guess its in the “bittersweet” category like a shit ton of owl city songs are, but still. this song changed our lives

I HOPE YOU THINK OF ME
has this sick chill drumbeat throughout the song which is kind of rare. it kind of fuses his underwater type sound with his going hard as hell sound. like, it would be like the choreography of “bet on it” if i was listening to this song while standing up. you get really into the lyrics. i love this part at the end where the music pulls back for just a second while he goes “the thought is KILLING me!” shoutout to “kamikaze” where he yells half of it and its invigorating, shoutout to “paper tigers” which is an amazing song that hasnt shown up on an album

SUNBURN (Ocean Eyes)
possibly the cutest owl city song. it has a sweet guitar riff. cute sweet, not sickass sweet.

HOT AIR BALLOON (Ocean Eyes)
possibly the happiest owl city song. extremely cute but not as cute as sunburn but happier than sunburn.

BEAUTIFUL MYSTERY
killer intro, really upbeat, the melody of the verses is great and the chorus goes pretty hard

RAINBOW VEINS (Maybe I’m Dreaming)
another top level cute and happy song (“cheer up and dry your damp eyes, and tell me when it rains, and i’ll blend up that rainbow above you, and shoot it through your veins”) and has a top tier chilled out whispery interlude/bridge/whatever that then throws you into this pumped up finale

THE YACHT CLUB (ATBAB)
speaking of being thrown into a pumped up finale, this does that too. so does “umbrella beach.” this one goes hardest imo and the live version of it goes even harder than that. plus the lyrics are amazing and the alliteration is stellar

***SUPER HONEYMOON*** (Maybe I’m Dreaming)
consistently one of my top tier faves. i like the semi staccato delivery of parts of the lyrics, the music is fantastic, also very Classic Example of owl city

SKY DIVER (MID)
super dreamy and pretty and bittersweet sounding, classic

HALCYON
a bop!!! electronica on electronica

SLEEPWALKER
so fun and sounds like a song to be going to the beach to

YOUTOPIA (ft. Adam Young)
obvs not owl city but i’m putting it in, the full 4 min version. not only dreamy and bittersweet but one thing i always love in music is an unresolved musical phrase repeating on end. there’s also this part in the middle where his vocals kind of layer and grow and it has a long E sound and when he lingers on the long E its one of those things that would be grating except for its actually great because of that. see: honey and the bee

MR. HEARTACHE (ft. Adam Young)
a total bop about being sad. like i wanna jump around to this song. see: tokyo, the song by adam young (owl city) featuring the artists of this one, SEKAI NO OWARI, which has my fave lyric “are you having fun yet, i’ll send you the sunset, i love the most”

FIREFLIES (Said the Sky remix)
the intro to this is like, oh my god. the only fireflies remix the world needs.

UMBRELLA BEACH (Long Lost Sun remix)
the original is great but i love this version even more. the finale is fantastic and exuberant

THAT’S IT i could include all the songs because i have good things to say and specific things to point out about each of them. for example: dental care is a masterpiece of puns. puns are a running theme in owl city. so is ghosts, the sky, the ocean, and The Affectionate Sigh. if you listen to enough songs you find repetitions of certain phrases like “oh darling i wish you were here,” “i feel like a postcard, i wish you were here,” “like hundreds of postcards, that say i wish you were here” and someone should make a post of all of them. it would be me if i had a laptop. anyways i like owl city you’re welcome for this post

anonymous asked:

pls like...... elaborate on nursey's reaction to dexs modeling. also on dexs reaction to nurseys reaction to dexs modeling. thnk u

Nice! I’m glad people have enjoyed this post, and I’m all too happy to give it a friend. These boys will be the death of me I swear…


  • So Nursey is all for body positivity and stuff right? He was friends with Shitty at Andover, so he’s heard the lectures and sometimes his depression would make him feel that he wasn’t pretty/handsome/manly enough (Especially in mid-adolescence with body changes and stuff) until he decided that it didn’t matter if he was pretty or handsome or manly- he was enough. And his body was too.
  • Nursey knows that Dex is in the place he was at about four years ago when they start at Samwell. And Dex gets a little more confident when he’s around other people with the same body type who care more about his defending ability than the way his ears stick out.
  • Nursey doesn’t even know that Dex has gone to model until the winter art show. He’s totally amazed, and he can’t talk to Dex about it for a while because he’s so in awe.
    • Dex is the last person anyone ever thought would model mostly naked for art. Nursey is under the impression that Dex doesn’t even /like/ art. And maybe it’s true that Dex is uncomfortable with a lot of the sexual themes, but for the most part this seems safe. Or at least it must have because it’s been done so…
  • When Nursey does finally pull himself together he’s just ‘good job for the art kids. Bet they appreciated it’
  • And Dex is all ‘thanks. you should come along’
    • YOU SHOULD COME ALONG?!?!?
    • Nursey has no chill
  • Oh but this is an opportunity he can’t pass up. So Nursey goes along with Dex in the spring semester and they try to talk him into doing some modeling too because let’s be real, who can look at Derek Malik Nurse and think ‘oh, no thanks, he’s not even remotely pretty.’ Let’s leave attraction out of it- Nursey is PRETTY.
  • But Nursey is all, ‘nah’
  • Because on the inside he knows that taking his clothes off with Dex not having his clothes on in such a close space would probably be the death of him. Derek Nurse is no fool. He knows his limits.
  • So Nursey focuses on his poetry instead because that’s what Nursey does and he works with Lardo to get some pieces submitted into the school art mag, and it’s great because they’re both getting their work published and Nursey gets to stare at Dex and no one cares.


  • BONUS at the end of the year there’s a small banquet for artists/ writers who have submitted their work to the Mag and been published. And they can bring a plus- one.
  • Nursey is thrilled and he asks Dex to come along “Because you were the inspiration and you deserve some recognition too” and so they dress up all nice like for Hausgiving and go to the thing.
  • And then right before his reading Nursey is all nervous and he’s probably spilled cheese puffs on Dex or something, but Dex is a gentleman (most of the time) and they’re in public so he only chirps Nursey about it a little. 
  • And after Nursey has read his poem to the audience, Dex is bright red and beautiful and Nursey is so proud to go and sit down next to him.
  • And he’s only a little bit surprised when Dex reaches out for his hand. And Nursey laces their fingers together and smiles brightly while Lardo’s grinning because she KNOWS that her 2nd string DMen are FINALLY together.
  • Lardo’s plot is complete.
A Birthday Surprise - Jake x MC Fanfic

Summary/Prompt: From Anonymous: “Hiii!! I was wondering if you could do a JakexMC request where everyone notices that MC has been acting a little off lately and Diego accidentally mentions that it’s MC’s bday and MC doesn’t wanna celebrate it due to all the recent drama but Jake wants to do it anyway? Like he rallys Sean, Quinn, Raj, Craig and the others to make it so perfect, and it works, and when MC asks why they did all of this, everyone reveals it was Jake’s idea lol. Whaddya think? P.S. I love your blog!!❤❤❤”

Author’s Note: I had a lot of fun writing this. Thanks for the request, Anon. :)

“What’s with her?,” Jake asks, taking a seat beside Diego and Quinn. The group was having breakfast by the pool, everyone in a jovial mood because the morning breeze was extra cool. Everyone except for one.

Diego looks over his shoulder and sees MC on the hammock, reading a book. “Uh, well, you know her, she loves her alone time,” he says, voice squeaking a bit.

“Listen Pop Culture Petey,” Jake says, waving a fork at Diego. “Your voice goes all Mickey Mouse when you’re keeping something.“

“No, it doesn’t!,” Diego defends, his voice going up an octave. Jake raises an eyebrow at him. “Fine. I’ll tell you! She’s like this because she’s —“

“Hormonal?,” Quinn pipes up enthusiastically, cutting Diego off. Jake and Diego visibly cringe, making her laugh out loud. “You know what I mean! She gets super cranky and is on mega-introvert mode when she gets her per—“

Diego holds his hands up high. “Ew. Stop. It’s her birthday today, okay?”

Fork dropping, Jake gives Diego a pointed look. “And when were you going to tell us that?”

“Tell you what?,” Sean asks, placing a serving dish piled with hash browns on the group’s table. “Hash browns, anyone? Raj cooked up a ton.” He takes a seat beside Jake.

“I added some secret spices,” Raj boasts proudly, placing a hash brown on each one’s plate.  

Jake grabs a hash brown and stuffs it in his mouth. “Pretty good, Top Chef,” he munches, giving Raj a thumbs up sign. “Anyway, it’s MC’s birthday today. This guy over here,” he points at Diego, “didn’t even think of telling us.”

“I did!,” Diego squeaks, prompting Quinn to laugh heartily again. “She just didn’t want to bring it up because we’re all preoccupied with the secret island shiz.”

Jake looks over to MC, who had her back turned away from the group. He grins, then looks back at the group. “Here’s what we’re gonna do.”

Proggy, trashy, heavy metal from Finland. Though mostly beloved for their antics, their socially-conscious lyrics and catchy tunes make them a must-listen. Boasts some excellent guitar playing. 

Language: Finnish

Listen to: “Dynamo,” “Vihaa,” “Meidänkaltaisillemme,” and “Väkivaltakunta.”


VARG

Melodic death metal from Germany and one of many bands with the same name. Probably the best-known band of the list. Their singer growls about vikings and mythology. Vehemently anti-nazi and anti-fascism. 

Language: German

Listen to: “Guten Tag,” “Achtung,” “Rotkäppchen 2015,” and “Invictus.” 


LEANDER KILLS

Metal band from Hungary featuring multi-instrumentalist Leander Köteles at its helm. Complicated bass lines, furious drumming, strident guitars, and the right balance between clean and harsh vocals await. 

Language: Hungarian

Listen to: “Híd,” “Szeresd Bennem,” “Madár,” and “Valami Folyjon.”


SKYFORGER

Folkish metal from Latvia. Enjoying exposing the rest of the world to the unknown Latvian mythology. Some beautiful harmonies that will make you feel like you’re sailing to the west with a horde of vikings. Also, bagpipes. Don’t let the English song titles fool you.

Language: Latvian

Listen to: “Son of the Mare,” “Long I Heard, Now I See,” “Two Brothers,” and “The Devil Slayer.”

PREACHER SUMMER SECRET SANTA: GET HYPED!

It’s starting to get a little hot out there. Summer is approaching and you know what that means… 

Summer Secret Santa. 

I’ve moved things up a bit so that we can have the exchange to keep us sane throughout the next two months, enjoy the gifts for a few days, and then we’ll have the premier! So they’ll be more info/reminders in the very near future, but for now you can: 

  • Know that sign ups start May 6th (and they’ll run through the 13th).
  • Know that the exchange will take place June 15th - three days before season 2 begins! 
  • Check out the new blog theme, the participation page, frequently asked questions, and last winter’s amazing gift collection
  • Shoot me an ask if you have any questions (or just want to chat ;) 
  • Start promoting! We’re not the largest fandom around, but we make up for it with enthusiasm. I have every expectation that this exchange will be even bigger and better than our holiday one, but that can only happen if word spreads. So reblog this, make your own posts, and tell all your friends! 

See you all soon~ 

Let's talk about Tony Stark

Let’s talk about how he’s not like Captain America and Thor who are soldiers/warriors who’ve fought in countless battles and are used to the horrors of war.

Let’s talk about how he’s not like Clint or Natasha who have specific skill sets and are trained to not bat an eye to anything weird but to simply roll along with it. Let’s talk about how they know the best ways to defend themselves, the quickest way to kill their opponents and get the job done.

Let’s talk about Bruce Banner who despises the Hulk yet can’t do anything about this ‘monster’ who protects him. Let’s talk about he is invulnerable, unable to die, and a force at par with “gods”.

Let’s talk about how Tony Stark is none of these. How the only way he can protect himself is through what his mind creates. Let’s talk about the cons of being a genius - that is being unable to control your thousand thoughts a minute mind, and being very susceptible to mental disorders.

Let’s talk about how in line with his mental vulnerability, he is also physically vulnerable i.e a civilian.

Let’s talk about how civilians don’t have special training, don’t know how to effectively kill or incapacitate, and are therefore in a vulnerable position.

Let’s talk about how civilians protect themselves in the event that they are untrained: science. After all, isn’t that what arms races have been about? To protect oneself from a rival by making sure your technology is more deadlier than theirs?

So let’s talk about how Tony Stark was a weapons manufacturer who was kidnapped and thoroughly tortured.

Let’s talk about Iron Man: a suit of armour meant to protect himself from being vulnerable, from being tortured.

Tony being a super hero is a side-effect. Tony using the suit to save other people developed from his own personal experiences (such as saving the people of Gulmirah because of the doctor).

But essentially, at its very core, Iron Man was meant to be a defensive weapon, a cocoon for Tony.

Why are Tony and the suit 'one’? Because the suit was specifically designed for Tony’s needs.

All his life Tony has made weapons for other people. Those weapons were offensive, and he didn’t know nor care how they were used. He simply had ideas and brought them into fruition.

But the Iron Man suit was built to protect him. It’s tailored to his specific needs. It’s customised only for him to understand. The suit is essentially his 'safety blanket’. He’s territorial and possessive about it.

The reason he doesn’t want the government to get their hands on the suit is his. It was borne as a result of the troubles he went through, the suit has his 'mark’ on it. Not his surname, but everything Tony is the suit is too.

Let’s talk about how Tony never gets out of his suit.

Let’s talk about how he and the suit are so intertwined that it becomes his obsession, he cannot live without it. It always has to be in his reach.

We saw that in the suitcase armour in Monaco. He didn’t take the suit with him because he wanted to fight crime and protect people - he took the suit as his bodyguard, to protect him in the case he was kidnapped again.

So once again we can see that the suit is a defensive weapon.

The only time Tony voluntarily took the suit off in face of a threat was in Avengers, but even then he did it because he was in his own tower that was built to cater to his needs.

He had Jarvis, and he had his bracelet armour. He was a wolf in sheep’s skin and knew that he had a card up his sleeve, that he was in no way vulnerable or defenceless.

Let’s talk about the wormhole. Let’s talk about how his fears on a scale of one to ten suddenly jumped from 3 to 11.

This was nothing he had ever seen nor faced. Tony is not a soldier not a warrior like Steve or Thor, and this was his first war.

A war against aliens.

A war which was difficult to fight against because he had no idea if his weapons would be effective against them.

And when he went into the wormhole, and saw legions and legions of Chitauri armies still waiting to be unleashed, his fear of being kidnapped seemed like child’s play.

And then he woke up.

Why did it scare Tony so much?

Because he knew that the six avengers were not enough to deal with an innumerable army.

Because he knew that even with their individual strengths and powers, they were still weak against an alien force whose cavalry seemed to be invincible.

Let’s not forget Tony is a weapons manufacturer. The suit was built to protect him, and in light of a veritable army, it failed.

Which leads to Iron Man 3.

To deal with the threat of an alien invasion, Tony stepped his game up. He injected, quite literally, the armour within himself and connected it to his mind so he would always, always be protected.

He created an army of his own to match an alien one and upgraded it every day. Because he knew that six avengers were not enough to deal with the unknown.

This continued into Age of Ultron where he created and upgraded his artificial intelligence system so that there could be a 'suit of armour around the world’.

Tony is still afraid of threats, he is still distrustful of the ability of the avengers and the governments to protect the earth from outside forces. The only person he can count on is himself, so he sets out trying to wrap the world in a cocoon via robots.

And Tony gets a lot of flack for it, even though this is exactly how “civilians” respond to such situations. We create armies and navies to protect ourselves from threats, we always upgrade our technologies to deal with the threats of our time and Tony perfectly encapsulates that.

And that is the reason why he will be pro-registration in Civil War.

As a civilian, always on the lookout for threats, he needs to be able to properly identify those threats so he can figure out a way to deal with them.

And here is why Civil War is considered a continuation of The Winter Soldier: the political and humanitarian theme remains, and is only going to get more complex.

Civil War is going to be amazing not because of its star-studded cast, but because of the controversy it’s going to induce in choosing a side.

This movie will raise one question: Will you support Steve Rogers who believes that war/conflict is inevitable and is not worth sacrificing individual freedom and liberties or will you stand behind Tony Stark who encapsulates humanity’s fear of a foreign threat and the willingness to do whatever it takes to protect oneself from it?

BUCKY FANS… I need your help with a project. I am collecting music-themed comic panels for a craft project. Panels with characters singing, playing instruments, dancing or even panels that have song lyrics as a voice-over. Anything music related. I have collected a lot so far thanks to a certain music-watch buddy, who shall remain nameless (ahem, @qft).

Once I have these all collected and sorted I shall decoupage a music-themed comic box to sit next to the amazing Bucky Box, it will be a thing of musical beauty!

But one thing I don’t have is any Cap or Bucky panels. Can anyone remember a time when either of them may have sang/danced/played music/anything that I could fit into my collection? Please let me know, even if it’s only a vague memory, I can hunt it down on Marvel Unlimited! Thanks!!

“My Name is Bucky”- Fighting for Self in Civil War

There’s no moment in Civil War that breaks my heart yet makes me prouder of a character than the moment Bucky finally voices who he is to someone while being interrogated. Up to this point he has claimed he doesn’t remember Steve outside of reading about him, refused to explain why he saved him, and has actively acted in such a guarded way that Steve honestly can’t figure out whether he’s dealing with Bucky, the Winter Soldier or someone else entirely. After being recaptured, Bucky refuses to answer questions, staring silently ahead until the pivotal moment his interrogator calls him James Buchanan Barnes. It’s then that Bucky forcefully, clearly, and almost defiantly says “My name is Bucky”. While this is an important scene for Steve in realizing that Bucky has at least part of his memory back, it’s even more important in that Bucky finally reclaims himself. After decades of abuse, brainwashing, isolation, and torture we finally hear Bucky be able to claim something of himself again. He’s not the same person, but he’s decided who he is, and that’s Bucky Barnes, whoever that is now, whatever that entails. It’s a powerful moment. He’s in a containment cell being questioned and controlled once again and he throws out the one thing he can hold on to and is sure of: He’s BUCKY and they won’t take that away from him again.

It’s a theme we see consistently with him. In First Avenger he repeats his name and ID number over and over under torture. In Winter Soldier he insists he knows Steve even after facing the wrath and abuse of his handlers. And finally here as he once again stares down a tormentor and holds on to what he knows with two hands. He’s a man with nothing but what autonomy he can wrest from people far stronger than him and we consistently see him fighting tooth and nail to keep or claim something of who he is. It’s truly amazing how incredibly, stubbornly strong Bucky is in the face of completely overwhelming circumstances. If Steve is a character with a habit of refusing to stay down in a fight, so is Bucky. His easiest path in every occasion is just to comply, give his torturers what they want, but Bucky is defiant to the bitter end. If Steve won’t stay down physically, Bucky won’t mentally.

It’s why it’s so painful that almost the next moment he is desperately trying to break out of his cell (and the frightening part is he almost succeeds, proving just how much he’s been holding himself back up to this point) to prevent Zemo from reading the code that will make him lose himself again, that will turn him into a mindless weapon. His actions are painfully frantic, scared, and desperate as he literally rips apart a cell designed to contain a super soldier. For Bucky it’s not just the horror of what he’s forced to do, but that he has no control. He’s in the pilot’s seat but he’s not steering. It’s even sadder when we get to know this version of himself that he’s cobbled together. He’s wary and more somber, his actions in groups a bit tentative, but who HE is is still there. He’s kind in the interactions we see, almost shyly smiling as he haggles in a market, even telling T’Challa he’s sorry about his father while fighting. He’s terrified of capture and is a completely devastating force, but after seeing what he CAN do later on, it’s obvious in the first fight that he’s pulling his punches and trying to cause as little collateral damage as the situation allows. He’s not lying when he aggressively tells Steve “I’m not going to kill anyone”. This version of Bucky is dangerous, but he’s also a good man, or at least is trying to be. The minute he gets control of himself later on, the first thing he asks is “what did I do”, horrified, but needing to know. He instantly throws himself into stopping the other Winter Soldiers, doesn’t even pause in his attempt to help. This Bucky isn’t the flirt with a swagger we originally know, but he’s still the unwaveringly good man we first meet. In this movie we watch a man carefully trying to pick through the shards of his own tragedy and succeeding in piecing together someone with a strong moral code, a sense of humor, and an ability to make himself useful. Who the hell is Bucky? He’s still figuring that out, but he’s getting there one brick at a time. He’s responsible enough by the end that we see him selflessly allow himself to be put back in cryo until someone can figure out how to get rid of his trigger.

Juxtaposed to Bucky is Wanda, another person trying to figure out exactly who she is. Her powers are terrifying and it seems like everyone around her is trying to tell her who she needs to be. Vision wants her to tone down her abilities so people will see the person he sees without fearing her. His intentions are pure, but he doesn’t understand exactly what he’s asking. Tony wants to keep her under house arrest claiming even that she was broken out of “somewhere she wanted to be” when Clint comes to get her. Tony fails to understand her as well, mainly because he’s projecting what HE’D want if the roles were reversed. The Accords are partially him putting a leash on himself and he’s at a loss that someone else wouldn’t want the same thing. Wanda is forced to face her own guilt at the beginning of the movie. Not only is she part of what happened in Sokovia, she’s also responsible in part for the accidental deaths of the Wakandans. Part of her story is her trying to figure out if she can bear the weight of who she is. Much like Bucky she’s at a crossroads of control over herself. Can she do it? Her powers are so extreme she also has limited ability to direct their outcome. In the end Wanda also claims who she is. She’s scary, she has flaws, but as she says, she can’t control people being afraid of her, only her fear of herself. She also owns who she is, forging an identity that is her own.

By the end, both characters shoulder the responsibility of who they’ve decided to be. Wanda takes the weight of the magnitude of what her powers can cause. Bucky is willing to go back in cryo until he’s able to better control himself. The important part is that they’ve decided who they are, for better or worse.
