Pairing: Hospital!AU - Nurse!Bucky Barnes x Reader x Patient!Ivar
Warnings: Fluff, Ivar ‘Fight Me’ the Boneless, Bucky ‘Please Calm Down You’re Gonna Break Something’ Barnes
a/n: I FINALLY DID IT!!! This is my entry for @bladebarnes2K 3K CELEBRATION!!! This is my first time writing Ivar, so please be gentle with me, I hope you guys like it <3
“(Y/n) remember, when he comes in you gotta follow my lead.”
“Babe, I’m not doing that,” I said between giggles, “leave the poor guy alone, he’s only doing his job”
“I know, rabbit, but it’s so boring here. I have to entertain myself somehow” he stated in a soft whine while looking at me with those sapphires he called eyes.
Before I could answer his night time nurse walked in. The tall man said hi and asked how he’d been doing, Ivar answered curtly that he was fine wearing his famous scowl. The nurse then proceeded to pull his cart into the room from the hallway to do Ivar’s vitals.
Nursey opened his eyes and gaped. Dex was standing there, running a hand through his hair; in front of him was a fully set table, complete with flowers and candles. And the food looked amazing, lasagna with garlic bread and a pie (strawberry, his favorite).
“Shit, babe!” He knew that Dex was planning something for his birthday. He’d spent the day with Chowder, eating lunch and just hanging out at Annie’s, which was an awesome way to start his birthday, and now this.
Dex laughed and stepped forward so that he could wrap his arms around Nursey’s waist and kiss him sweetly.
“Happy Birthday slash Valentine’s Day, sweetheart.” And shit Nursey loved when Dex called him ‘sweetheart’ or ‘baby.’ They’d been dating for a year now but it still made him feel warm. “I told you I could be romantic.”
Thanks to @manticoremonster for helping me expand Nurse Offstill/Nurse Awesome even further.
In George and Harold’s comics, Nurse Awesome’s origin story is this: she is a genetically modified clone made from the DNA of a famous (but dead) WWII nurse. She was designed and created to fight the world’s most evil diseases, and that’s exactly what her life is dedicated to.
Nurse Awesome’s arch nemeses is The Black Plague, a supervillain who dresses like a plague doctor. His minions’ names are Bubonic (called Bub for short), Pneumonic (called Pneu for short), and Septicemic (called Sep for short). Her other enemies include Mad Cow, Flu Season, and the Pox Brothers (Chicken and Small).
Nurse Offstill helps George and Harold with the Nurse Awesome comics, by contributing her medical knowledge and her wit and also by modelling for Harold.
George and Harold decide to split their much-anticipated Captain Underpants/Nurse Awesome crossover into two parts. The first part is a roaring success. The illustrations are spot on, the dialogue is sharp and funny, it’s action-packed, it’s medically accurate, and CU and Nurse Awesome have excellent chemistry as a team as they join forces to defeat their mutual enemies. However, it ends on a cliffhanger (because George and Harold are little assholes like that), which leaves many readers frustrated and ravenous for more. The reader left most frustrated and ravenous is Mr. Krupp, who secretly read the comic after confiscating it, like he does with all of them.
The second part takes a long time to be made, as George, Harold, and Nurse Offstill are putting a lot of thought and care into it. Mr. Krupp’s impatience begins driving him insane, and he goes around the school confiscating every comic he finds hoping it’s the second part, to no avail. When his impatience reaches a breaking point, he confronts Nurse Offstill in the hallway and demands to know what happens next. Offstill: Are you actually being serious right now? Krupp: I’m never not serious! Just tell me! Offstill: Nope. Sorry. Can’t. No spoilers. Krupp: WHAT?! Offstill: You might ruin it for the other fans. Krupp: *turning bright red* I’m not a fan! Offstill: Then what happens to Captain Underpants and Nurse Awesome shouldn’t bother you so much. *walks away and leaves him shaking with rage*
He then tries to get George and Harold to hand over the draft for the second part, only to be told by them that Nurse Offstill has it (she’s doing some editing). Knowing that there’s no way Offstill will give the draft up willingly, Mr. Krupp resolves that he has to try and steal it. His plan is to take some personal item of hers from her office while she’s elsewhere and then go to her apartment later on to return it (he’ll blame the theft on some student). He’ll get her to invite him inside and then he’ll snoop around for the draft while her back is turned.
The plan fails miserably. When Mr. Krupp gets to her apartment, it’s full of kids. She’s babysitting half of her loud and rambunctious nieces and nephews. Comic or no comic, there’s no way he’s going in there. She’s won again. It gets worse when his toupee falls off and the kids starting screaming about him being Captain Underpants. They don’t go to Jerome Horwitz, but they get all the comics from their aunt. One of Offstill’s nieces: *jumping up and down excitedly* And Aunt Denny is Nurse Awesome! Mr. Krupp: *through gritted teeth* I know. Offstill: *smiling smugly*
Since he’s behaving like such a child over the second part of the crossover, Nurse Offstill decides to make him pay for it. She shows up in his office with the thing he wants most: the only advance copy of the second part, put together just for him. However, he can have it only on three conditions… 1) If he gets to keep this comic and the others, the rest of the students’ get to keep theirs. No more confiscating. 2) No more detention or marks docked for students who doodle in their notebooks or on their homework and tests. He has to let all the teachers know this. 3) He has to put up art boards around the school where students can hang their creative drawings without fear of punishment. He agrees to all three demands, or she’s taking the advance copy away and George and Harold won’t release the second part at all. Offstill: You get all the art the kids make or you get none of it. Your choice. Krupp: *appalled and furious* You can’t do this to me! Offstill: Yes, I can. I’m Nurse Awesome.
He says no at first to spite her. She shrugs and leaves, with his desired comic book. Devastated, he follows her, and discovers that she’s headed for the school cafeteria where she intends to burn the comic over the stove. As she’s turning the stove on, she gives him once last chance to accept her offer. He hesitates until the last second, right before the envelope the book is in is about to touch the flame. He’s sweating and biting his nails at this point, and he bursts out, “ALRIGHT, ALRIGHT, I’LL DO IT!” Offstill: *smiling victoriously* I knew we’d come to an agreement. We’re a pair of superheros, after all.
He doesn’t get the comic until he’s fulfilled all three demands and made them permanent in writing. Once he finally has it, he shuts himself up in his office (telling the secretary not to bother him for any reason) and devours it in one go. He’s completely blown away. It’s George and Harold finest work yet; they’ve outdone themselves. The only thing that bothers him is the ending: Captain Underpants and Nurse Awesome part ways because Nurse Awesome is travelling back in time to meet her original self during WWII. He wonders if this is Nurse Offstill’s way of hinting that she’s planning to leave Jerome Horwitz and go back to the children’s hospital…
On this day in 1881, the nurse Mary Seacole died in London aged
76. Originally from Jamaica, the young Mary was taught her nursing
skills by her mother. When war broke out in the Crimea, she applied to
give medical assistance to wounded servicemen but was refused, and so
gave treatment independently. Her patients admired ‘Mother Seacole’ and
helped raised money for her after the war when she was left destitute.
Despite her exemplary national service and popularity in Britain,
Seacole faced discrimination at home due to her race, and was unable to
vote or hold public office. She has thus often been forgotten and placed in
the shadow of famous Crimean War nurse Florence Nightingale, however, in
2004 Seacole was voted the greatest black Briton.
Coming off a long night shift where I ended up having to stay an hour late and the shift ended on a shoddy note, a 30-something year old woman struck up a convo with me on the way to our cars. She told me how her husband who was in the ICU was successfully extubated(his breathing tube was removed) today. He had failed the week prior so this was a great success. She told me they had been through a lot of changes this year since he had a brain injury. She seemed really positive and optimistic. I could tell she was dying to tell someone about his improvement.
Ladies and gentlemen, find some sort of gratitude in your day even if it’s bad. There’s people who are happy that they themselves or their loved ones are breathing on their own today and that’s intense that we don’t even think about how our ability to breathe can be a luxury. Small interactions like that is why I love being a nurse.
Awww, the famous nurse, and crusader for children's health and safety! My sidekicks have told me countless tales of your selflessness and heroic feats! Madam, I must say, this is QUITE an honour! *sweeping bow*
*thinking* I knew I would be seeing Krupp's bare chest someday but I thought it would be when I would have to use a defibrillator on him.
The Ghost at The Waverly Hills Sanitarium, Kentucky.
Coughing up blood, over crowded, understaffed, bizarre unethical twisted
treatments, “Welcome to Waverly Hills Sanatorium” – a medical facility
that was once dedicated to treat patients suffering from Tuberculosis,
long before the modern cure was discovered. Without the antibiotics, the
hospital provided the only known cure at that time – fresh air and
sunshine, and thus the patients spent the majority of their time in the
solarium-like porch ways. There were many other unethical ways that were
used to treat patients which were downright dangerous and only 5%
patients survived the treatment. It is believed that as many as 8000
patient dead bodies were carelessly thrown down a chute and then taken
out of the building through an underground tunnel. This method of
disposing the bodies was kept confidential by doctor’s orders who wanted
patients to be unaware of the quantity of dead bodies. But with the
discovery of the antibiotic, that could successfully treat and cure
tuberculosis, the sanatorium was closed down. Many believe that the
spirits of the patients still roam about the hospital in search of
answers. The most famous being of a nurse named Mary Lee who
happen to contract the disease. But the story takes a horrific twist
when she was found hanging from a light apparatus in Room 502. Some
believe she took her life after she found out that she was was pregnant
with the child from one of the doctors and unmarried. Tragically her
body lay undiscovered for a long time. The picture above is of the
ghostly figure captured on camera, who is believed to be of Mary
Lee….forever roaming the corridors of the hospital groaning in pain.

On this day in 1910 the famous English nurse, Florence Nightingale, died in London. Born in 1820, she was named for the Italian city in which she was born where her wealthy parents were visiting at the time. Her parents initially tried to prevent her from training to be a nurse, which she resolved to do after she believed God wanted her to do some work. However Nightingale bucked the tradition of upper class women settling for a good marriage and instead pursued a career as a nurse. She became famous during the Crimean War of 1853 - 1856 when she drew attention to the poor conditions of the troops and nursed wounded soldiers. Other nurses laboured in Crimea alongside Nightingale, including the Jamaican-born Mary Seacole. Upon her return to Britain Nightingale began the movement for professional nursing by establishing a nursing school in 1860, leading many to call her the founder of modern nursing. Florence Nightingale was 90 years old when she died, and passed away in her sleep at her London home.
Badass Nursing Home Residents Recreate Famous Movie Scenes
Senior citizens from nursing homes in Essen, Mülheim and other towns across Germany have proved that having fun has nothing to to with your age. The young-at-heart nursing home residents created a calendar of brilliant pictures for the Essenes Contillia Group called “Classics 2014” in which they replace famous movie stars in some of their favorite classic movie scenes.

Lol. I was wondering when someone was going to ask for this one…
Thank you for sending it!
So here is my attempt at a video interview for a fictional college gossip magazine.
This story is actually based partially in fact about the time I accidentally hit my husband in the face.
The Swallow; volume 21, issue 13
Watch the video excerpt from our lead reporter’s, Sarah Hendrickson, interviewing with Samwell Alum and Famous Author, Derek Nurse.
[Audio Description Below]
Derek is dressed in a white button up and dark olive green suit. He has a golden and matching green scarf with gold horn rimmed glasses. His hair is a little gray at the temples. Sarah is behind the camera asking questions.
Derek: “The most embarrassing thing I did while at Samwell,” he pauses to huff a laugh, “was discovering that my then boyfriend, now husband*, was ticklish and then accidentally punching him in the face shortly after.”
(A note flashes at the bottom of the screen, *Derek is referring to Will “Dex” Poindexter, current NHL alternate captain of the Seattle Schooners. )
D: “Yeah, I know I sound awful when I phrase it like that, but, I should preface that I’m an extremely clumsy guy. Dex has given up on glassware being our apartment after I broken 4 glasses in like two months. ”
S: “Okay, but that still doesn’t explain how you ended up punching him, yanno in the face.”
D: “Right. Anyways, Dex and I shared the attic in the Haus (Samwell Men’s Hockey Team’s Frat House). So uhhh, we were -um- doing what typical college boys do alone with their SOs. And I brush against Dex’s side and he almost flinches out from under me. There is this moment when Dex realizes that he knows, that I know, that he is super ticklish in this one spot. Being the caring and compassionate boyfriend, that I am, totally use this to my advantage and continue to tickle him.”
S: “Oh my god. He must’ve been pissed.”
D: “He was livid and shouting at me to stop.” Derek starts to use a very poorly done Maine accent. “Nursey, stop it! Dere, freaking quit it! Derek, f— off! I mean it!” Derek switches back to his normal accent. “Once again, being the wonderful boyfriend, that I am, tells him to ‘Make Me’. This is how end up being flipped off the bed and Dex enacting his revenge by tickling me. The problem is, unlike Dex, can’t breath to tell him to stop. So, I am just blindly throwing out my hands to try and stop him.”
S: “Oh No.”
D: “Yeah. Exactly. One of my hands ends up clipping him in the face. All I hear is a ’S—!’ from him and I am too busy trying to catch my breath to
see where I hit him. By the time, I open my eyes, I see that punched him in the nose, so hard, that he is bleeding profusely. And you would think this would’ve been the end of our humiliation.”
S: “Its not?”
D:“No, because, before I can even apologize, our captain and our goalie come busting into our room to figure out what the hell is going on. Now, I have to explain to them what happen, while Dex deals with his nose. They just laughed and laughed, and called me Mr. K.O. for the immediate future. Luckily, Dex’s nose wasn’t broken, but, he did end up with these nasty black eyes around his nose for like a month afterwards. Everyone thought he got into fight, which meant we had to explain repeatedly until the bruises went away. So, that was my most embarrassing Samwell experience.”
S:“Well that’s all the questions we had today. Thank you Derek for interviewing with us.”
D: “It was my pleasure.”
(Screen fades to black with white typeface that reads “Derek had a new book coming out March 22nd. Please pick up our latest copy of The Swallow to read the rest of this interview.” )

- Untangle Me, by problematiclarry: Louis finds himself out of place in LA, unable to get
at an itch that’s been bothering him for years. He supposes back in the
early days, home hadn’t been a place. It’d been a person. He’d etched it
permanently into his skin for fucks sake.
It was always him and Harry. Stuck to each other like super glue. Pulled
together by some magnetic force, existing in their own bubble. Everyone
could see it, but that was half the problem, wasn’t it?It’s not like Louis can pinpoint the exact moment in time when him
and Harry fell out of sync. There wasn’t really one at all. It had been a
gradual slip, like the tide wearing away at a sandstone cliff. Chipping
the solid foundations until there was nothing left to stop the
structure falling to the waves below. It’s not like he spends all of his
time sitting around moping over a lost friendship, he’s good at
distractions. But LA only seems to accentuate the distance between them.
Two separate planets, not even in the same solar system.
Or the one where Harry and Louis finally get it right.
