Do you ever find yourself disliking a character because of their fans? You try to separate the fans from the character, but it’s just so difficult. The fans can make you love or hate a character based on which unnecessary reaction they have.
If the reaction consists of all this unearned praise and this idea that this character is above reproach, then you’re gonna end up hating the character. I’m talking about those characters where the fandom thinks it’s a good idea to infantilize them and make them out to be ‘good guys’ even when they’re not.
If the reaction consists of all this vitriol and unnecessary hate, then you’re gonna end up loving the character. I’m talking about those characters that are just as guilty as the other characters, but they’re still hated for it. In fact, they’re hated even more for it. They don’t do anything anyone else on the show doesn’t do, yet they get the most hate.
It’s just so odd how the fandom can cultivate your viewing experience.
Hello everyone~, I’ll try to make it quick and short as usual, but I might fail as usual too xD
Again, please don’t take everything here too seriously.
Let’s go!!! Bangtang gayooo~~~~
Our Jungkook is already distracted right from the start, I wonder who he’s staring at?
Still distracted to the point he’s the latest to do the introduction 👀👀
Staring contest, what’s new? The way Jungkook dances to Dope cutely then Jimin lazily moves along tho 🐥🐰😆😆
Jungkook ah~… your expression… 미안 xD
Everyone, say hi to the new God of Destruction ㅋㅋㅋㅋ
Jimin is guiding Monie to juggle.
Jungkook’s no.1 notp strikes again, how can he miss the fun?
Time to show who’s the man.
Lol Taehyungie is not impressed (he said Jimin did better, awwww best friends ♥)
Jimin is having fun tho. As expected of him, everything Jungkook does amuses him ♥
Jimin is having fun again, thanks to Jungkook’s “Kimchi kimchi ya ya jja jja” lol, I did too xD
Let’s skip forward a bit, I mean I don’t wanna go as far as capturing everything, sorry ><
But apparently Jimin took Taehyung’s answer and got it right so he thanked Taehyungie (awwww~ ♥), but he thanked Jungkook too? I have no idea why? Probably because Jungkook didn’t run as fast as he could (he looked to Jimin’s side before running). Anw, don’t trust me, I’m biased xD.
Single Ladies killed me tho, I didn’t know that it sounded like that haha.
Jimin’s high-pitched laugh at 5:59 tho, ah my hearteu 💙💙
Congratulations, Jeon Jungkook-ssi! Once again, you just proved that your PhD in Jiminology wasn’t just for decoration!
While everyone else including Jimin is busy inspecting Jimin’s picture, Jungkook is at ease preparing for his buzzer.
(please don’t be distract, friends, look at Jungkook, remember to look at Jungkook, don’t lose your focus elsewhere, I’m not responsible for anything, okay~? xD)
Well, can’t expect anything less from Jimin’s biggest fan right? He walks away like it’s no big deal getting the answer (in relation to his Jiminie hyung) right, and Jimin is impressed af
just a warning, just because Yukhei(Lucas) is 18 doesnt mean you can start sexualizing him. I have already seen things, not right now but in the past, about him and please don’t. please give him the respect he deserves.
I uh, I wrote some feel-good ironfalcon ‘cause I know @bloody-bee-tea doesn’t get enough of it and it’s also Tony’s birthday so. Hope everyone likes it. (Happy birthday, Tony!!!!)
Steve had a date. Sam and Bucky razzed him the entire run.
“Jesus Christ, this is what I get for telling you guys?”
Steve complained. “I’m just never telling you I have a date again.”
“We’re only teasing you because it’s been so long for you,” Bucky explained. “Loser.”
“You don’t get to call him an loser. You hate running,”
Sam pointed out.
Bucky shrugged. “Well, I guess I’m used to it.”
“He’s mad because it’s thrown him off schedule and now he
has to wait for The View to come on,”
“I haven’t watched The
View since Barbara left, asshole!”
Sam shrugged. “I mean it’s whatever for me. Now I get to go
home and surprise Tony.”
“Uuugh,” Steve and Bucky groaned.
“You’re just jealous that Tony chose me!” Sam said, grinning,
then yelped when Steve shoved him and he tripped into the pond. “Fuck!”
Steve gaped at him for a moment before taking off at a
“Steve what the fuck?!” Sam shouted after him.
“He was probably afraid you’d punch him in the face,” Bucky
said. “I would.”
Sam sloshed his way out of the pond, sputtering. “He could
have at least helped me out!”
Bucky shielded his eyes from the sun. “Holy shit he’s gone.”
“That guy,” Sam hissed, half pissed off and half amused.
Sam was slightly less damp when he squished back to the
penthouse. Ugh. Now he had to shower before he surprised Tony. Tony was a heavy
sleeper but he was also somehow acutely aware of when Sam was getting in the
shower. (Sam was not opposed to Tony following him into the shower but
sometimes he just wanted to press Tony back into the pillows and take him apart
piece by piece.)
Sam opened the door to their bedroom carefully, holding his
He felt like it’d been punched out of him when he saw Tony
sitting on the bed, trying to squeeze one stocking-covered foot into a pastel pink
Tony set both of his feet on the floor, heels clicking as he
walked over to the mirror. The stockings on his legs were a shiny white,
clinging to the muscles of his calves and thighs, and held up by a lacy white
garter belt. He was wearing what looked to be pink satin panties underneath it,
though knowing Tony, it could have been actual silk. Tony picked up a
delicate-looking chemise in the same powder-pink as his shoes and carefully
pulled it over his head, letting the hem flutter down to cover the belt and
He was beautiful.
As Sam watched, Tony carefully ran his hands down his sides,
smoothing the chemise against his body before letting it fall away again. He
turned in a circle, heels clicking against the floor probably more than necessary,
keeping his eyes on the mirror as long as he could before spinning to lock eyes
on it again. He smiled at the way the hem fluttered before falling back against
Sam forgot that he was leaning on the door and fell
face-first onto the floor with a grunt. He heard a yelp and then the thud of
something else hitting the floor. “…Ow.”
“Sam!” Tony squeaked, trying to skitter to his feet again,
but apparently standing up from the floor in heels was much harder than
standing up from the bed. “I didn’t—You’re home early!”
“Yeah, Steve pushed me into the pond and ran away,” Sam
answered, clambering to his feet. “So Bucky let me call the run short so I
could come home and shower.” He gave Tony another long once-over. On the floor
like this, knees splayed, Sam could just barely see the panties peeking out from
under the hem of the chemise. “…You look nice.”
Tony blushed brightly, hands curling into fists against the
“Is there a special occasion or something?”
Tony grabbed the hem of his chemise, twisting it in his
hands anxiously, unable to draw his eyes up from his knees.
“Sometimes—sometimes, when you go on your runs, I… I like to feel pretty. So.
Um. I dress up. Just for a little while.”
Sam stepped up to him and held his hands out. “Pretty?
Sweetheart, you’re gorgeous. Were you
afraid I wouldn’t like it?”
Tony took his hands and let himself be tugged onto his feet,
rocking precariously on his heels for a terrifying moment and leaning into Sam
to catch his balance. “…I mean… I know it’s weird,” he said quietly.
Sam nearly choked. “It’s not weird! You’re beautiful! God—Can I touch you?”
“I—” Tony finally lifted his gaze, brows furrowed together
in confusion. “I guess so.”
Any other time, Sam really would have pushed for a firmer answer. Now, he couldn’t help himself; he grabbed Tony by the waist and dragged
him closer, pulling him up against his body. The chemise was silky and cool
under his fingers. “You didn’t need to hide this from me, Tony. You have no
reason to be ashamed of something that makes you feel good and doesn’t hurt
anyone else. God, you’re gorgeous. I don’t—I don’t even know where to look—”
“Sam,” Tony complained, pushing at his shoulders. “You’re
getting me wet!”
Sam began pressing kisses to Tony’s throat and jaw. “Good.”
“Not—not sexy wet,
you’re gonna ruin my nighty!” Tony squirmed. “And you smell like the po—oh,” he
mewled when Sam bit down on the tendon in his neck. “Sam-!”
“’m gonna take a shower,” Sam murmured in his ear. “And you’re
gonna wait out here for me, okay?”
Tony’s eyes fluttered shut for a moment before he forced
them open again. “Or I could come with you—”
“Or you could lie out here waiting for me while I take a
record-breakingly short shower and then let me have my way with the world’s sexiest man
alive,” Sam suggested, sliding his hands down and around to cup Tony’s rear,
feeling the garter belt through the chemise. “Do you have more of these?”
Tony blushed again, eyes rolling toward the ceiling so he
didn’t have to look at Sam. “I have, um. A few boxes. Of stuff. These are my
only pumps I own though.”
Sam gives Tony’s butt a squeeze, admiring the way the heels
make it so much more pert. “You don’t have to hide this from me,” he told Tony gently.
“I love you—all of you. And if you like to feel pretty, I will support you.”
“Well,” Tony mumbled shyly. He took a step back, looking at
his feet. “If you say so.”
“I do say so,” Sam said, pressing a kiss to Tony’s forehead.
“I’m gonna go shower. Don’t run away now.”
Tony rolled his eyes and sat down on the edge of the bed. “I
haven’t run away from a bedroom since I was nineteen. Especially not mine.”
“Well, if you say so,” Sam parroted back at him, pausing in
the doorway to the bathroom. “Hey.”
Tony turned to look at him with a questioning noise, hand
halfway down to pull one of his pumps off. “Hmm?”
“Keep those on.” Sam smirked. “I wanna feel those heels
digging into my back.”
Tony let out a startled, high-pitched sound as he stepped
into the bathroom and shut the door.
“How did you like your party?” Sam asked softly.
Tony smiled into his pillow. “It was nice. I especially
liked meeting Sharon and telling her that her boyfriend shoved my boyfriend into a pond and ran.”
Sam grinned. “I liked the color Steve turned when Sharon
“I like Sharon. I hope she sticks around.”
“Me too.” Sam leaned in to press a kiss to his cheek. “Okay
but I have one last present.”
Tony sat up immediately, smiling brightly, even as he said, “You
didn’t have to do that!”
Sam snorted as the brunet gave him grabby hands and pulled
the box he’d been hiding out from under the bed. “No, no, I insist you accept
it.” He put it in Tony’s outstretched hands. “I hope you like them.”
“Of course!” Tony said, pulling the ribbon open. “It’s from
“Every time you say something like that, I fall even more in
love with you,” Sam informed him.
Tony scoffed, trying to hide the way his cheeks went pink as
he pulled the paper open. “I already said I’d like them, you flatterer. Oh!” He
paused, hands hovering over the beautiful powder blue heels in the box. “…Oh.”
“JARVIS helped me with the size,” Sam explained as he
watched Tony’s fingers trail over one beautiful blue arch. “I hope you like
“Oh, Sam,” Tony breathed, then turned abruptly, pulling off
“Hey, you don’t have to put them now—” Sam began.
Tony already had the shoes in hand and was carefully pulling
the first shoe on. “Sam, they’re perfect—Oh,
JARVIS, I need matching panties!”
“Tony,” Sam laughed, sitting up. “You don’t need to—”
Tony got to his feet and took a few experimental steps
around before turning to look at his feet in the mirror. “They’re gorgeous. Oh, Sam-!” He turned, flushed
with pleasure. “This is the nicest gift anyone has ever gotten me.” He waited for
Sam to shift around so his legs were over the edge of the bed so he could stand
between them, leaning down to press a gentle kiss to his lips. “Thank you, Sam.”
Sam reached up to cup his cheeks. “Anything for you, sweetheart.”
Tony crawled back onto the bed, straddling his lap. “Hey,
“Hmm?” Sam murmured, reaching down to pull Tony’s shirt out
of his pants.
Tony leaned back, looking down at him through his lashes. “If
you want to pick out something other than shoes, you can.”
Sam hummed, sliding his hands under Tony’s shirt and
stroking up and down his back. “That’s really nice, Tony. Anything I want?”
“Anything you want,” Tony agreed quietly.
“What about a birthday cake?”
Tony paused, then leaned back, raising an eyebrow. “A
“Yeah. For my birthday. I want you to jump out of a cake
wearing nothing but the shoes I bought you.”
Tony smiled widely. “And people accuse me of being a deviant. Do you want me to do it in front of the
“Nope!” Sam said, popping the P. “Just me.” He slid his
hands around to unclasp Tony’s slacks. “On second thought, don’t jump out of a
cake. Just be waiting in bed for me.”
“Hmm… I could do that,” Tony said thoughtfully. He played
with the hair on Sam’s nape idly. “I… yeah, I could do that.” He paused. “…I
can still get you something else too, right? I’ve kinda already started making
Sam snorted. “Of course you have. Don’t worry, Pepper’s
already told me about the giant bunny you got her for Christmas.”
Tony bounced in his lap excitedly. “You’re gonna like it, I
swear! I put it past Pepper and
Sam laughed and pulled him down for another kiss. “My
birthday isn’t for four months!”
“I started it two months ago!” Tony began brightly. “It’s—”
“Nooo I wanna be surprised!” Sam exclaimed, covering his
mouth with one hand. “Can’t we just have birthday sex and you don’t spoil your
own surprise for me?”
“Aw,” Tony said, shoulders sagging, but he nodded. “I guess.”
Sam snorted again. “Poor you, having to have sex instead of spoiling my birthday present that you’re
going to give me in four months.”
“Boo,” Tony complained. “It’s gonna be super awesome and you’re
gonna love it.”
“Oh no, I guess I’ll just have to keep having sex with you
to keep the secret from being spoiled,” Sam drawled. “A true hardship.”
“Tony that didn’t even make sense!” Sam exclaimed, trying
not to laugh and mostly failing.
Tony smiled and leaned down to smother his laughs with a
kiss. “Happy birthday to me!”

Chapter 7 : The Confrontations
have to pull Steve away from Nick, reminding him tonight is about
good publicity & hitting a civilian right now would be counterproductive. The scowl
doesn’t leave his face though, so you pull him into a kiss to try and
distract him. It works, and he pulls you to him by your hips. You
finally separate as you hear someone let out a cough. Both of you
part and see Tony Stark raising an eyebrow at you. As you smile, you
extend your hand to him.
Mr. Stark, I’m Y/n. It’s nice to finally meet you,” You say
sweetly. He smiles in return, letting out a laugh as he takes your

blush spreads across your face.
comes to stand next to Tony. “Mr. Stark, shall we continue the
interview for the magazine since we were so rudely interrupted?”
Nick asks, in his fake, kiss ass voice.
yeah, sure kid. I’ll see you guys in a little bit, go mingle!”
Nick’s new job is for a magazine. Those poor people don’t know what
they’ve walked into.
Nick walks away with Tony, he looks you up and down, making you
squirm under his gaze. “New York has changed you Y/n, I’m loving
it.” He winks at you then goes after Tony. Steve’s face was the
definition of murderous as he watches Nick walk away. You take his
face between your hands, redirecting his gaze to you.
“Hey, don’t let him bother you.
I’m yours, remember?” You say softly. He snaps out of it and
smiles down to you. He places a kiss on your nose then takes your
hand in his.
on, it’s time you met the team, Doll.”
the way to find the team, the boys have to stop and socialize with
every group. You’re hesitant at first, but when Steve starts
introducing you everything feels like it’s going smoothly. You feel
like you’ve met a million new people already.
You finally make your way to the
team. You start getting anxious,but shake it off.
are just people, like the boys. They just save the world constantly.
Normal, world saving people. Breathe.
this is Y/n.“ Steve says, as he pulls on your hand making you
step in front of him and closer to his friends. Natasha is the first
one to approach you, a beautiful smile on her lips.
I’m Natasha, it’s really nice to meet you. I don’t know what you’ve
done to these boys, but they talk about you constantly.” She
says as you shake her hand. You blush and laugh.
really nice to you too. I’m a big fan of all of you.” You look
to the rest of team, their attention was on you already. “Thank
you all for everything you’ve done for this world.” You send
them all a genuine smile, receiving the same from them. After
Natasha, you met Clint, Rhodey, Bruce, Thor, Vision, and finally
Wanda. When you meet Wanda, she pulls you into a hug.
so nice to finally meet Steve’s girlfriend!” she squeals.
God, she so cute with that accent. Wait, is Steve telling people I’m
his girlfriend? Huh, I wasn’t aware this relationship started

to look at Natasha.
laughs and agrees. You
smile and begin talking with the team about random things, just
getting to know them a little more. Steve stands right behind you the
entire time, playing with the hem of your dress. As the team
continues talking, you get a chance to look at their costumes, which
aren’t really costumes. They all had on their Avenger Suits, except
Rhodey; he wore a shirt with the arc reactor like Iron Man.
guys have such creative minds.
the boys all receive compliments on your costumes.
I’m a genius.
Tony made his way back to the team, announcing that they have to go
socialize more. He begins shooing everyone in different directions.
end up getting separated from Steve when Tony drags him along with
him. Music begins playing a little louder than before, and people
begin slow dancing on the floor in the middle of the room. You smile
watching them dance, then see Wanda and Vision among them. You send
her a wink, causing her to blush. You begin talking to a couple that
was standing close to you when you feel a tap on your shoulder.

instead you’re met with the exact opposite: Nick.
you like to dance, Y/n?“ he asks softly.
seriously has some fucking nerve.
you’re about to reject him, you notice the couple you were talking to
watching the interaction.
can’t cause a scene and I can’t be rude. Just get this over with.
force a smile and nod. You then excuse yourself from the couple, and
make your way to the dancefloor. Nick pulls you to him, resting one
hand on your waist while holding yours in the other. He begins slowly
moving side to side, following the beat to the song.
look beautiful tonight, you know that?” He asks, his lips close
to your ear.
aware. Don’t think anything has changed Nick. I agreed to dance to
avoid bringing negative attention to us by rejecting you. This dance
isn’t for you, so deflate your giant ass ego,” you whisper harshly
as you smile at a couple dancing near you. He lets out a deep
chuckle, gripping you tighter.
sweetheart, what do you think you’re doing? We both know you don’t
belong here. Let alone with a team of Heroes.” You scoff, going
to push away but
he grips you harder. He moves his lips right to your ear, sending
chills down your spine. “Steve is going to get sick of you, he’s
going to realize he can do better. Why else do you think he hasn’t
come to separate us yet? Maybe it’s because his attention is already
moving elsewhere.” Nick lets your waist go and spins you so that
you see Steve laughing with a beautiful Blonde woman. He pulls you
back to him.
going to realize you’re not worth more than anything other than a
good fuck. Then what are you going to do Y/n? It’s time to give up
this fantasy life, and come back to me. Where you belong."
let out a laugh, leaning up to whisper, "Oh darling, I will
never come back to you. No matter what happens, I would rather feed
myself to an alligator than have anything to do with your pathetic,
lying ass. I don’t care what you do, stay in New York, Hell move into
my building if you’d like, but I will never associate myself with you
in this lifetime ever again.” You shove yourself away from him,
walking away without looking back. His words are still echoing
through your mind. You feel a hand wrap around your wrist, and you
rip you hand away. You look to see it’s Steve, with a shocked
expression on his face.
sorry I thought you were Nick.” You apologize.
saw you guys dancing, how did you get sucked into that?” He has
an edge to his voice, but you can’t blame him.
didn’t want to make a scene, he asked me infront of people.” You
shrug. He nods and lets it go.
sure everything’s okay?” he asks one last time. You force
a smile and nod yes. He leads you back to the team, just in time to
hear Tony dismiss everyone for the night.
and Steve both sigh, both so ready to get the hell out of there.
finally step out of the elevator onto your floor, Nick’s words
replaying the whole ride home. You go straight to your door, the boys
following close behind. When you realize they are all behind you, you
can’t deal with them all right now.
guys, I think I need a couple minutes to myself right now, okay?”
You ask quietly. They all have looks of uncertainty on their faces,
you roll your eyes. “I think I can handle being alone for 10
fucking minutes.” Anger and sass leak from your words. You feel
bad, with all Nick’s words swirling around your head and
igniting a new flare of self doubt, you can’t help but want space.
don’t say anything, just head to their own door. Steve stays behind,
sending you a ‘what aren’t you telling me?’ look. You don’t say
anything, just step into your apartment and close the door behind
you. You go to pour yourself a glass of wine; you deserve it and you
didn’t drink at the gala, so fuck it. As you begin to pour it, your
phone starts vibrating. You see that Nancy, a nurse you work with, is
calling so you answer immediately. 10 minutes later, you find
yourself having agreed to take Nancy’s shifts for the next week. She
had a death in the family, so you didn’t have the heart to say no.
Plus, she got your boss to agree to give you another week off once
she gets back, to make up for cutting your vacation short.
only a week, I can do this. Only seven , 16-hour night shifts in

and wash off your makeup. As you’re about to leave, Steve walks
through your door.

Steve, I didn’t drink. I’m not an idiot I wouldn’t go into work
drunk. Seriously?“ You’ve finally had it, you never thought you
would see the day where you didn’t want to be by Steve Rogers. You
push past him, grabbing your bag and going to the elevator.
wait!” But you don’t. You get in the elevator and the doors shut
in front of Steve.

skip : the last night of covering Nancy’s shift.
finally make it home; today was the last time you had to cover for
Nancy. Being in the Peds department was more stressful than expected.
You are now off for a week again, but with no interruptions this
time. You have barely spoken to the boys this past week; whenever you
get home from work you would just sleep until the next shift. Of
course, they would text you, but barely answered. Most of the texts
were from Steve trying to check in on you. You feel bad for how
you treated him after the gala that night, but you haven’t had the
time to talk to him about it. The only person you confide in about
that night is Gloria. To say she was mad would be an understatement.
She has a death wish for Nick, and ripped you a new one at how you
let his words get to you and affect how you think of Steve. She was
right, you shouldn’t have let them bother you. But you’re only human

you expect, but with someone better.

inside you breaks, tears pouring out of your eyes like Niagra falls.
You throw yourself into her arms, wrapping yours tightly around her
neck. She holds you to her as you sob.
Neither of you notice the guys burst into the hall, just watching you. You hear someone clear their throat and remove your face from its spot in Gloria’s neck. You both look to see all three men staring at you. Gloria releases you, sending them a wave. You sniffle and wipe your eyes.

smack the back of Gloria’s head.
Sam & Bucky are bent over laughing, Steve just lets out a chuckle.
you know this?” Sam questions Steve. He just nods, still
smiling. They continue to laugh at you expense, you grab Glorias hand
and pull her through your doorway.
sorry, I had to,” she says as she laughs. You wave her off,
already over it.

him like he did something wrong when he hasn’t. Nick knew exactly how
to manipulate you so you’d self destruct, you’re letting him win.”
right, poor Steve. I’m such a bitch.
continue talking, catching each other up on everything that didn’t
make it into the phone calls. You sit on the couch for hours until
there’s a knock on your door. It opens before you get there,
and all three of your boys are standing there. Sam’s holding 3
bottles of tequila and margarita mix in his arms while he wiggles his
eyebrows at you. Bucky has a bag of what smells like tacos, and Steve
has a cake from the bakery you love in his.

of the night is spent with all of you laughing, playing UNO and
revisiting old memories. Gloria unravels all your dirty, embarrassing
secrets to the boys. Making you want to strangle her, you stand up
about to tackle her to the floor as she starts another story. Steve
stops you, pulling you into his lap. He sends you a loving smile and
you return it. Things feel normal for you guys again, thankfully. The
night ends with everyone on your couch, except instead of cuddling up
to Steve during the movie, you’re wrapped in Gloria’s arm.

horrible image of Nick leaning in your doorway .
