helmet smash

Ok, but consider this...

Lena taking Kara to the batting cages

RvB Headcanon:

Wash is so incredibly pale. He never takes his armour off unless he is at least 99% comfortable with his surroundings (he has never been 100% comfortable anywhere since Project Freelancer, and it’s usually in a locked and heavily guarded room or bathroom/shower space). He eats with his helmet on and sleeps (when he can) fully armoured up and ready for anything that comes his way. He’s so paranoid about someone showing up out of nowhere, guns blazing, and taking out his troops that he is never seen without it.

He hasn’t felt the sun on his face in years. He’s so pale, the Casper ghost jokes aren’t even funny anymore. The first time any of the others (excluding Carolina and Epsilon) see his face is when his helmet is smashed and fragments of his visor need to be extracted from his face by Dr. Grey. They are all silenced by his appearance and Caboose starts getting uncomfortable. 

When Grey starts talking to Wash about his vitamin deficiencies, she thinks they are alone. Caboose is waiting outside for Wash because he’s so scared that Wash is sick because he’s what other sick people look like. He’s had lots of sick people in his life that never got better. So when he hears through the paper-thin door about Wash needing to take special medicine (vitamins) to make him feel better, Caboose makes sure to tell his best friend Church and his other friend Tucker so they can help Wash get better too. They are a team, and they need to help their leader friend not be sick anymore.

Cue to Caboose following Wash around every day with a little plastic cup full of “happy Wash medicine” and a glass of water because Caboose cant lose anyone else.

Tucker just gives him a look and they have a silent conversation about it, ending with Wash sighing and taking the pills that Caboose provides.

And Epsilon/Church rigs up a full-body scanner just to check Wash’s blood contents from a distance to see if he took his meds today. When he doesn’t, he sicks Caboose on him and it all repeats until Epsilon is satisfied and Wash is okay for the day.

How to Give a Sith Lord a Heart Attack 101:  a Crash Course by Jane Foster

According to Jane Foster, the fact that Steve Rogers was her cousin (first cousin, twice removed) did not mean that she inherited the Infamous Rogers Genetic Disposition of the Self-Preservation Instincts of a Suicidal Lemming™ - coined by Bucky Barnes.

She was a scientist.  That PhD she earned wasn’t for decoration and she can definitely tell you that there was no such thing - James Buchanan Barnes, you are being a drama queen just like your great-niece Darcy!

Whatever.

So, when she marched right over to a gobsmacked Dark Lord of the Sith and gave in to the inexplicable urge to smash his helmeted head in with her heavy binder - she was just….. just ….

Actually, she wasn’t sure why she was so angry.  But she definitely was. She was definitely angry at this asshole.  Also, she was currently pregnant with Thor’s babies so maybe it was pregnancy hormones and temper. 

She totally did not hear a brisk, English-accented voice approve of what she just did and remark, “Vader’s lucky she didn’t get a knee up his bollocks.  I know I would’ve.“

She just made a mental note to ask Cousin Steve as to why he just yelped, “Peggy?!!”

In the meantime, she was going to make the acquaintance of Steve’s newest friend, who happened to be this very sweet guy named Luke.  She’s not sure why Bucky had to have kittens over seeing the two of them together but she’ll get to figuring it out. 

Eventually.
