Excerpts From A Conversation Between Two Actual Adults 2 [Electric Boogaloo]:
  • Working Title: Revenge of Capslock America and Iron Feels
  • : ::
  • Me: TONY BEING WITH STEVE AND BUCKY WHEN HE VISITS PEGGY AND SHE CALLS HIM HOWARD.
  • Wy: oh god tony would just get up, stonefaced, and leave.
  • but no go on
  • Me: BUT NO HE DOESN'T CORRECT HER HE DOESN'T EVEN LET ON LIKE HE'S NOTICED HE JUST PRATTLES ON ABOUT TECH AND SUCH AND SHE SMILES AND NODS AND SAYS 'YOU KNOW I'VE NEVER UNDERSTOOD A WORD OF THIS SORT OF THING, HOWARD' AND HE JUST GRINS AND PATS HER HAND AND SAYS 'YOU'LL CATCH ON' AND STEVE'S SITTING THERE JUST STARING AND BUCKY KINDA WANTS TO KILL TONY BECAUSE HE IS *NOT* *HOWARD* AND HE CORNERS TONY AFTER AND SHOVES HIM INTO THE WALL AND IS ABOUT TO TEAR INTO HIM FOR TOYING WITH PEGGY WHEN SHE'S SO FRAIL BUT THEN TONY'S JUST STARING AT HIM WAITING FOR IT WITH HIS CHIN UP AND HIS EYES ARE *SO* *SAD* BECAUSE HE *KNOWS* AND IT KILLS HIM TOO BECAUSE HE HATES IT BUT IT'S AUNT PEGGY DAMN IT IT MAKES HER HAPPY TONY CAN PUT UP WITH IT TO MAKE HER HAPPY AND BUCKY JUST CAN'T YELL AT HIM OR HIT HIM AND STEVE JUST STANDS AT BUCKY'S SHOULDER WITH THIS TWIST TO HIS MOUTH LIKE HE WANTS TO APOLOGIZE OR CUSS OR SMILE OR CRY HE DOESN'T EVEN KNOW BUT FUCK HE HATES IT I HATE IT GOD WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE.
  • Wy: OH YES GOD
  • OW
  • Me: STEVE PICKING PEGGY UP BRIDAL-STYLE AND WALTZING REALLY AWFULLY AROUND HER ROOM WHILE BUCKY HUMS REALLY OFF-KEY AND SHE LAUGHS SO MUCH AND SO DELIGHTEDLY AND FOR SO LONG SHE NEEDS HER OXYGEN.
  • BUCKY LETS STEVE CRY ON HIM WHEN THEY GO HOME AFTER.
  • Wy: ITS BUCKY THE NURSE CORNERS WHILE STEVE'S WIPING HIS EYES IN THE BATHROOM. AND HE KINDA LOOKS SKITTISH AND IS AFRAID THEY'RE GOING TO TELL HIM HE'S BAD FOR HER AND HE SHOULDN'T VISIT AGAIN BUT THE NURSE GIVES HIM THAT SAD SMILE AND SAYS SHE'S NEVER SEEN PEGGY SO HAPPY AS THE DAY HE FIRST CAME IN WITH STEVE. AND HE'S WELCOME BACK ANY TIME. AND WHILE BUCKY'S GAPING AT HER AND SHE TURNS AWAY, SHE TURNS BACK LONG ENOUGH TO SAY "WHATEVER YOU'VE BEEN UP TO, I'M GLAD STEVE GOT YOU BACK. HE SEEMS BETTER THESE DAYS." AND THEN WHEN STEVE COMES OUT OF THE BATHROOM, SMILE BACK IN PLACE, BUCKY THROWS AN ARM AROUND HIS SHOULDERS FROM THE FRONT AND DRAGS HIM BACK INTO THE BATHROOM TO CRY ON HIS SHOULDER AND STEVE LAUGHS AT HIM BECAUSE BUCKY WHAT THE HELL?
  • Me: STEVE AND BUCKY LAUGHING AND CRYING AT THE SAME TIME THO. JUST AT ALL. EVER. AT A HOWLING COMMANDO'S GRAVE AFTER BUCKY MAKES A REALLY AWFUL CSI-MIAMI-ESQUE PUN ABOUT THE GUY AND STEVE DOESN'T WANT TO LAUGH BUT HE CAN'T HELP IT. AFTER WATCHING TITANIC BECAUSE IT'S A 20TH CENTURY CLASSIC BUT JEEZ IT WASN'T THAT MUCH BEFORE THEIR TIME, YA KNOW? BUT THEN IT'S ALL 'I'LL NEVER LET GO JACK' AND STEVE TURNS AND BATS HIS EYES AT BUCKY AND BUCKY SHOVES HIM OFF THE COUCH BEFORE HE CAN SAY IT BECAUSE THAT'S SO DUMB. OR WHEN BUCKY HAS A NIGHT TERROR AND HE JUST SEES STEVE LOOKING DOWN AT HIM AS HE FALLS AWAY AND HE BARGES INTO STEVE'S ROOM WITH WET EYES AND DRAGS HIM OUT OF BED AND SHAKES HIM AND CALLS HIM A FUCKING IDIOT FOR BLAMING HIMSELF FOR THAT JUST OUTTA NOWHERE AND STEVE'S LIKE 'BUCKY, MAN, YOU'RE WEARING DUCKY PAJAMA PANTS AND I THINK CLINT'S NESTED IN YOUR HAIR' AND BUCKY HATES THAT HE LAUGHS BUT HE DOES. IDK MAN JUST ALL THE CRY-LAUGHING.
  • Wy: YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS
  • I NEED ALL OF THE RECOVERED BOYS JUST SHOVING EACH OTHER AND BEING DUMB AND SWEARING AND SNARKING AND NOT MAKING A BIG DEAL OUT OF THE FACT THAT THEY'RE CRYING THROUGH ALL OF THAT. AND THE REST OF THE AVENGERS ARE JUST LIKE "WHAT THE HELL?" AND BUCKY SAYS SOMETHING LIKE "AW STEVE USED TO CRY ALL THE TIME WHEN HE WAS LITTLE I JUST GOT USED TO IT." AND STEVE SHOVES AT HIM AND IS LIKE "I THINK YOU WERE THE ONE WHO WAS CRYING. I WAS TOO BUSY TRYING TO STAY ALIVE, BUCK" AND BUCKY SORT OF SHRUGS AND GIVES HIM THIS FOND SMILE AND GOES "YEAH I GUESS YOU WERE." AND THEN HE GIVES HIM THSI SHIT EATING GRIN AND SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT MAGICAL DISNEY TEARS AND HOW BUCKY CRYING OVER HIM IS PROBABLY THE REASON HE MADE IT TO ADULTHOOD AND STEVE CHOKES AND IS LIKE "I KNEW WATCHING DISNEY MOVIES WITH YOU WAS A /MISTAKE/"
  • Me: OH MY GOD WHAT RIDICULOUS BOYS.
  • I WANT TWELVE.
  • Wy: I'LL TAKE TWENTY
  • Me: OH MY GOD NATASHA AND SAM VISITING WITH BUCKY AND STEVE AND BUCKY AND STEVE NEEDLING SAM AND TEASING HIM CUZ HE'S THE NEW GUY YOU ALWAYS TEASE THE NEW GUY AND PEGGY JUST LEANS OVER TO NAT AND WHISPERS 'BOYS ARE RIDICULOUS' AND NAT'S LIKE 'YEAH...' AND THEY JUST KINDA SIT THERE GRINNING AND SHARING A PLATE OF COOKIES WHILE THESE STUPIDLY ATTRACTIVE HARD-BODIED SOLDIER/SUPERHEROES BICKER LIKE FIVE-YEAR-OLDS.
  • Wy: THAT IS ALL I WANT IN LIFE
  • Me: SAM GETS STEVE INTO A HEADLOCK AND BUCKY JUMPS AROUND LIKE A BOXING REFEREE GOING 'BREAK IT UP, BOYS, WE CAME TO SEE A FIGHT, NOT A DANCE' AND STEVE'S FIGHTING BACK BY POKING SAM IN THE ARMPIT UNTIL HE GIGGLES. 'FORGED IN THE HEAT OF BATTLE,' PEGGY MUTTERS WHILE NATASHA LAUGHS. 'GLORIOUS HEROES OF WAR WITH DARK AND EMBITTERED PASTS.' MEANWHILE BUCKY'S BETTING STEVE AND SAM A DOLLAR THEY CAN'T DO A ONE-HANDED HAND STAND AS LONG AS HE CAN.
  • Wy: MOFG
