EVERY SINGLE TIME IN BERLIN I MANAGE TO EMBARRASS MYSELF SOMEHOW.
1. Reply to German in Japanese instead of German or English. NIU COME ON TRY NOW IT’S NOT THAT HARD TO SAY JA, NEIN AND BITTE…! At least I remember to thank in German.
2. Went and bought my brother a surprise Overwatch key chain bag I saw on Tuesday for his birthday. The clerk wishes me good luck with the bag. Instead of just saying thanks, I have to add that “I hope I get my fave” because i can’t reply to sudden notions and start to leave.
The clerk calls after me asking who is my fave. I stop and happily announce Junkrat.
He gives me a strange look as I leave the shop.
Outside I realize THE BAG DOESN’T EVEN HAVE FUCKING JUNKRAT NOW THE CLERK PROBABLY THINKS I’M A FUCKING IDIOT FOR BUYING IT, THERE IS NO JUNKRAT, WHY COULDN’T I JUST SAY THANKS OR IT’S FOR MY BROTHER.
Then I spent rest of the time thinking how I failed, because my mind doesn’t know how to stop processing and analyzing things 24/7.
First of all, no one knows why Tony Stark wanted to be a lawyer. He was literally the absolute worst at law. He didn’t try at all, but he passed the bar, so he was a lawyer. You didn’t hire him unless you were absolutely hopeless because Tony liked challenges. He liked not being bored out of his skull. He’s been on jury duty approximately twice and only one of those times did he try to jump out the window. (Rhodey stopped him that time, that significant bastard.)
His mortal enemy was Steve Rogers. Do-gooder lawyer who probably said things like “good golly” or “oh my goodness” on the regular. Disgusting. Steve Rogers was stubborn, but more importantly, he had stupidly organized speeches that could sway audiences. Ugh.
They were enemies. Both were assholes. But they kept getting hired because they were the only two lawyers in New York that could get one hundred percent of the people on jury duty to show up early. So there’s that.
“Ladies, gents, others of the jury,” Tony starts out, “let me start out by saying this looks really, really bad.”
“Hey!” His client said. Tony shoots him a look. “It doesn’t look that bad.”
“Dude, you kind of seem like you robbed a jewelry store. It’s looking real bad.” His client crosses his arms.
“At least we agree on something,” Steve Rogers says. “If this man’s own lawyer says that it looks bad, how do we trust him?”
“You trust me because I wasn’t finished yet,” Tony snarks back. “So, as I was saying, it looks bad. But just because something looks bad doesn’t mean it is bad. For example, Steve Rogers’ fashion choices look bad. He wears khakis about ten hours a day. I bet he has pajama pants that look like khakis. But is he a bad guy? No. Same with this guy I’m defending.”
“You know I have a name, right?” The client says. “It’s John!”
“How boring,” Tony says. “But, now I leave Steve to do this thing. Knock ‘em dead.”
“Thank you,” Steve says. “Now, my client was robbed of not just jewelry…” Tony rolls his eyes as the jury laughs. Looks like he’s winning this round.
Except for the fact that Steve won’t stop doing good one-liners. “Ugh, that’s not even the point I’m trying to make, sweetheart,” Tony says. The whole ‘sweetheart’ thing is meant sarcastically so it means absolutely nothing, okay? “I’m saying that there’s no way my client could stash the jewelry literally anywhere except the store or his pockets. They searched him, he came clean. They found something at his house, but that was his own necklace.”
“If I”m being fair, I did steal that one, like, fifteen years ago,” John offers.
“You are so not helping your case,” Tony says. “Shut up.” John goes silent.
“And you aren’t communicating with me,” Steve says.
“Oh for the love of god,” The judge, Maria, snaps. “We’re not here to settle a couples dispute. We’re here to see if John here stole something. Get to the point.” Tony and Steve both freeze, looking at each other.
John ends up going free because Tony won the crowd over with his facts and one-liners and his comedic timing.
“Good job, Tony,” Steve says. “I think they made the right decision.”
“You sound like they use you in school promotional ads about not doing drugs,” Tony says with a snort. “But thank you, Steve.”
“Oh fuck you,” Steve says with a grin. “I do not.”
“Eh, grow a beard,” Tony says. no don’t that steve you’re gonna be like an attractive mountain-man. Steve just laughs.
“I’ll get you next time in court,” he says.
“Good luck,” Tony says. “You’re gonna need it.” Steve laughs again, walking into his car and settling down in the driver’s seat.
“Oh shit,” he cursed. Looks like he actually has a crush on the rival lawyer.

I am thankful for all my mutuals, who not just cheer together during the glorious time in the season, but also cry together when nothing happens right and we’re hating the team together but also at the same time loving them so much, maybe a little bit too much than what is good for us.
I am thankful for all the mutuals who share the same passion with me. While in real life people will only roll their eyes or force a fake smile out of politeness whenever I start to talk about it, you guys know, and understand how much it means to me. I am thankful that you will respond with “I KNOW RIGHT????” whenever I say something like “ALL THE FEELINGS I CAN’T EVEN agdfakjfvjhafvldb”
I am thankful that in this goddamn site, no matter how it can be a toxic and dangerous place with all the hating and the discourses, I can still meet the good people from all around the world, that I can still find people like you. I am thankful that the friendship that we share, even though it’s just a virtual one, it’s something that can make me feel better in my bad days, a little light in my dark times, some reasons for me to keep going.
I had promised a KiriBaku kid something like months ago, and tbh most of the reason why it took me this long is because I couldn’t pick between these two so?? In the end just have them both I guess - some info about them under cut, in case you wanna know more!!
Shit, your teacher Bakugou idea is something I never considered but now think would be really cool. Cuz he would not stop being a hero but he wouldn’t half-ass being a teacher so it would be like how All Might attempted to hero and teach but could actually work. Plus, I’m all for Bakugou’s role model switching with time to Aizawa. 10/10 idea.
OMG Fran now i want to see Teacher or Older Bakugou or or Bakugou with Aizawa
Bless both of you for giving me a reason to talk about this cause honestly I love this idea way more than striktly necessary - this!!! is how I like to think it would go down:
