There are 24 hours in a day. Only a small fraction of those hours were spent sleeping, and you for one, didn’t do much of that. Still, you weren’t one to sleep in, regardless of how many hours of sleep you had. Every morning, you were up at 6:30 on the dot. It had become a ritual to be up before everyone else, so you could make coffee the way you liked it (Steve made it too strong or too weak. There was no in between) and no one ever complained.
This particular day, you slept in.
You had a mission yesterday, and this one was definitely not kind to you. Word came in about a hydra meeting taking place, so Steve organized a group consisting of him, you, Sam and Natasha.
At first everyone was worried; it was 1:26 pm, and still no sign of you.
“Hey, uh, F.R.I.D.A.Y?” Tony called out. He was walking back and forth in the kitchen, arms crossed and wrinkles forming on his forehead.
“Yes, boss?” the irish A.I. replied nonchalantly.
“Whats the status on Y/N? She still alive in there?” he asked back.
Bucky shook his head in disapproval. “That’s not funny Stark, Steve said she took a hard hit yesterday and needs as much rest as sh-” F.R.I.D.A.Y interrupted Bucky,
“She’s heading out of her room right now, sir.”
Everyone froze and looked towards the hallway that your room was in. Your shadowed entered the room first, but slowly and surely, you came along as well. Steve quickly stood up and approached you cautiously.
“How ya feeling? We were all kind of worried when we didn’t smell coffee this morning” he joked.
You rubbed your eyes for a good moment before looking up at him. You could see he was trying to be playful with the coffee remark, but his eyes spoke a different story. You reached out and patted him on his upper left pect and chuckled.
“I’ve felt better, but I’ll be alright. Thanks for asking” you mumbled back, “What’s that smell? Did you make the coffee again?”
Natasha got up from the kitchen high stool, walking over to you with a mug of what you assumed was coffee.
“Actually, I made it this time. I wasn’t sure which roast you used, so I kind of just mixed some until it smelled like yours” she said, offering you the mug.
Without hesitation, you reached out and took it. Carefully lifting it to your nose, you took a deep whiff and furrowed your brows.
“It smells like you mixed the Hawaiian Kona with Tony’s favourite French Dark Roast? There’s even a hint of something else, but I’m going to assume you added… Lion Coffee?”
“W-wow. That’s exactly what I put! Damn Y/N, if I hadn’t known almost everything about you, I would assume you were a coffee connoisseur.”
“Oh please” you giggled out, “I’ve been making the coffee for over a year now. I think I know my stuff.”
You walked over to the couch, joining Sam and Bucky who were watching the t.v. Both of them acknowledged you, giving you a smile and nod. Bucky looked particularly happy to see you, scooting over more towards you.
“How’d you sleep, doll?”
“Like a princess”
You rolled your eyes in a friendly manner, making him chuckle.
“Hey, any chance you have a hair tie I can use?” you asked him. Your hair was everywhere, pointing out in every possible way.
“Actually, today is your lucky day because I, in fact, do” he replied, taking the tie off his wrist and handing it to you.
Thanking him, you put the mug on the coffee table and took the hair tie. As you collected your tangled mess into a somewhat decent ponytail, you maneuvered the hair tie around your fingers to get it in the right position.
Just as you were about to wrap around, the hair tie came off your thumb and slingshotted directly at Bucky’s face, hitting his cheekbone.
He let out a small yelp out of pure surprise, and turned his face around to see what hit him. Sam leaned forward, letting out a contagious cackle causing everyone else to let out a laugh.
“Was that you?! Did the world’s deadliest assassin just yelp like a little puppy?”
You gave Sam a dirty look, and moved your gaze to Bucky.
“Oh my god, Buck, I am so sorry. Are you okay? I swe-”
“I’m fine! I’m fine Y/N. It was just a hair tie, no harm done. I don’t even have a mark”
You studied his facial expression and let out a laugh. Bucky’s expression soften a bit as the ends of his lips lifted into a smile. After wiping a nonexistent tear, you looked back at Bucky and his playful smile turned into a devious smirk.
“What was that?” you questioned him, raising an eyebrow.
As Rogue were saying they wouldn’t allow food gifts, my plan
to bring Tom a bag of Clementines (top rated snack by both Tom and Magic, MATES #46) was foiled, so
instead I learnt the noble art of Candle Making, and made a Clementine Cake
candle using eco soy wax. And made custom labels. And went all out.
It’s called ~Respect For Women~, OBVIOUSLY.
He couldn’t believe it, and that I knew which episode it
was, and just seemed so surprised, touched and taken aback. “Wow… I can’t tell you how
much that means to me that you actually know that.”
And he signed Little Harry’s little head! And took more
selfies with him. He promised to put them up on social media soon when he escapes UK roaming charges.
He was like “I LOVE YOUR GLASSES.” And I was like “I LOVE
YOUR GLASSES TOO.”
Our glasses are cute, ok!
Then “I LOVE YOUR REVERSE FLASH LANYARD.” To which I
restrained myself from the obvious reply of “I LOVE YOUR ENTIRE EXISTENCE.”
Which would have been accurate, but may have resulted in security being called
to the scene.
I took a photo of myself outside the auto room afterwards because Tom got me feeling cute af and like I could take on the world!
YES I ASKED FOR A HUG NOBODY CAN JUDGE ME ON THIS.
The Cavanarms were out of ALL control. What kind of musculature!
AND THE FLOOF.
And the everything, let’s be real. The everything.
Tom asks for permission always. Before doing anything which
may tangentially involve you, he asks if he can, if that’s ok, and waits for
full verbal consent before proceeding.
Beyond precious and lovely and tremendous and winning.
And robust & athletic.
Tom Talk #2
He will be doing MATES “until the world runs out of snacks!”
Power sliding was his own invention – it was written as
running in and grabbing the gun and he was all “no I don’t think so, how about
I just slide in” and so he did.
He likes to do all of his own stunts – he says his stunt double has
the best job in the world because he gets paid to come in then get told to go
home and hang with his twins because Tom has got this.
The glasses were coming on or off from episode 1 as little
tells and visual hints and cues: Tom was doing “about 117 things throughout
season 1” as part of EoWells’ subterfuge, which you can watch back and notice
only in retrospect.
Big Belly Burger started off as a joke, and he and Carlos
were like “let’s talk about Big Belly Burger as much as we can” as improve which
then took off and became a thing, so much so he now has a poster in his room.
Was asked if he could travel back in time, what message
would he give himself - “don’t kill all
the cows in the future, Big Belly Burger is the best thing they have!”
Tom kept complimenting the shirts and costumes of everyone
queueing to ask questions – it seemed a tactic to ease their nerves. Adorable and thoughtful!
“Hello, Flash!” (In EoWells voice) at a little girl in a
Flash shirt about to ask a question. TOO CUTE.
His favourite scene this season was in Flash Back where
Grant was chained to the chair, and he was threatening to thrust his hand
through Barry’s chest.
Mentioned NBA All Stars – said that it’s basically rich
celebrities trying to play basketball for televised fun, but that it gets into
trouble when they start taking it too seriously and forget it’s just on
“The show works best with daily conflict – Harry is a malcontent
bitch who’s always complaining.”
BUT deep down Harry is a good person, and all he really
cares about is “getting his daughter safe and sound.”
“WE CREATE ALL THIS, THEN NEXT YEAR BLOW IT ALL UP.”
Described his behaviour on set as “just massive amounts of
hijinks and practical jokes – that’s my speciality.”
CARLOS: “a musical genius… the best I’ve ever seen in 25
Someone asked what he likes to do in his spare time…. “Vancouver
is a coniferous jewel of a city”, he spends a lot of time being outdoorsy. He
also writes a lot!
“I WROTE SOMETHING FOR GRANT AND I”, it shows both Tom and
Grant in a “MUCH DARKER AND FUNNIER LIGHT” – NOT for The Flash, something
original, and they ARE going to shoot it and make it available to us!
Was asked about the wheelchair, and mimed out the same story
that he did in yesterday’s lounge with the spinning of the chair, saying on
every spin to Grant, “WATCH YOURSELF, ALLEN.” And Grant couldn’t keep a
Talked about Cisco vibing… “he can’t really control it! But then he can!”
Said how he can when he needs to for the story, but then at other times it
seems like he can’t again, but that it’s a necessity for the story as
everything would be too easily resolved otherwise.
