So... April getting blamed for Splinter being killed? There are even some people who says that Apriltello is dead because Casey was comforting her as the boys carried away the body. What are your thoughts? (We who follow you probably already know, but I still want to know)

I honestly haven’t seen this on Tumblr at all… but then again I’ve greatly cut back on looking at TMNT tags due to idiocy like this. But since you asked…

I think that if people are blaming April, it’s because they either hate her or see this as a chance to bash on a ship. Which, as anyone who knows me knows, pisses me off. But hey, lets look at this logically. So I guess dome would say ‘April has powers, she could have used them to save Splinter!” True, April has psychic abilities and she has improved on them greatly… but they aren’t as powerful as they were when she has the Aeon crystal. She also got beaten tot he curb and used a lot of her energy during the fight. Plus honestly what COULD she have done? Even if she could have used her powers to stop Splinter form falling off the roof, she couldn’t stop him from bleeding to death after Shredder stabbed him. That happened too fast for anyone to prevent.

Yes, April DID use her powers to shove Shredder off the roof, but that was an emotional reaction. As we have seen before (The Invasion, Buried Secrets, Annihilation: Earth… infact she did the exact same thing in that episode) when April reaches an emotional breaking point, her powers react to it. When Splinter died the first time? Her powers reacted unwittingly and pushed Shredder hard enough to knock his helmet off. This time she may have had more control over it, but she still did the exact same thing, only into a garbage truck that time. That was all she had left in her and by then it was too late to do anything else, and trust me if she could have saved hims he absolutely would have.

Now Apritello, that has nothing to do with this. It disgusts me that people want to bring shipping into this situation. Donnie just lost his father, but he knows that it was Shredder who caused it because he saw it. Why in the Hell would he blame April for it? Yes Casey comforted April, Donnie was grieving too much to do it himself cause… you know, his dad died, and Casey and April ARE friends. Say what you want about Casey, he cares about April and he does know better, as seen in Buried Secrets. Of course he was going to comfort April, that’s what friends do. Shipping should not even be talked about during this because IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THIS. FOR ONCE FORGET ABOUT SHIPPING GDI.

…okay that’s all I’ve got. I can’t stop the haters, but April did nothing wrong. No ships are dead. Fandom still needs to get their act together. That’s all I have to say.


The Difference Between Us is an upcoming My Little Pony fan game about Fluttershy on her first date with Pinkie Pie. Fluttershy never knew that Pinkie felt that way about her, and she struggles to figure out what she wants and how she feels about Pinkie as she finds her way through the date.

There are three main routes through the date, and each route has three endings, all with several different variations depending on your prior choices. There are no bad endings, just different ways of exploring a new relationship and the new feelings that come with it. All of the mane six as well as the cutie mark crusaders make appearances to offer advice, hang out, or even put on a show. And all along the way, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie will be telling stories, sharing secrets, healing old wounds, and, hopefully, growing closer.

Coming soon!


headcanon: genji has a lot of boyfriends

Sword Oratoria

So awhile back I picked up the first volume of the Danmachi spinoff LN in a buy two get one free sale thinking that it was a manga. I was initially disappointed because I didn’t really want a LN at the time, but since I bought it I figured I might as well go ahead and read it. 

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It’s certainly not the pinnacle of fantasy writing, but I was engaged in the story and wanted to know what was going to happen next. I appreciate that in the spinoff it focuses on Aiz and her familia doing badass things in the dungeon rather than Bell being a newb and getting stronger. Aiz is already basically a god among men, and it lets the story go somewhere different than the original. 

While the writing is for the most part fairly simple (though I suspect this is partly because of it being translated and also that LNs are typically aimed at a younger audience and tend to not use a lot of advanced Kanji, which probably translates to the somewhat punctual and simple sentences that LN translations seem to have) the author has a real knack for describing large scale tactical battles. Sure Aiz is pretty OP and well wreck things, but in the really lower levels of the dungeon if they don’t work together and have a strong battle plan they’re just gonna die. 

I also appreciate that in the LN the world is fleshed out a lot more. World building is one of my favorite things in a show or book, and the Danmachi anime didn’t go into too much depth about the various things. The LN goes into much much more depth about how all the systems work, the various familia, cool little things about the world and so on. Also the dungeon is just fucking cool. Each floor can be completely unique, with almost no restrictions placed on what it has to look like or be which leaves the author with incredible freedom to dream up the wildest floors they possibly want. 

I wasn’t really expecting to enjoy this book very much, but it’s a solid fun read. Something like a 6-7/10 if I’m going to give it numbers. If you liked Danmachi at all, or sort of liked it but wanted a different view of the world this is a nice book to pick up. Only the first volume has been officially translated, but they seem to be coming out with new official translations every couple months. I’m sure there are fan translations floating around too, but I haven’t looked for them. 

So ya, fun book. There is an anime adaption scheduled sometime this year too. I think next season, but maybe the one after. That should be fun.

Pairing: Dean x Reader
Words: 747 (Ya see what I did there?)
Requested by @sabriel-38:  I saw the Before he Cheats request and I was wondering it you could do something similar with 747 by Lady Antebellum, please? Dean x Reader, please. Thanks in advance~ 

A/N: If you want to be tagged in anything, send me an ask.

           She didn’t know where I was. She didn’t know what my plan was. But I could tell she was tired of waiting for me. She was tired of not knowing how long it would be before we were together again. And she would never have guessed I would be getting on a plane for her. But that was the plan.

           Her words on the phone rang in my ears; I don’t know how much longer I can take being alone, Dean.

           I never wanted to be the reason for her sadness. She was everything to me and it broke my heart to know that I wasn’t showing her that. I had to show her I loved her.

           I didn’t fly. I hated planes. But I had to get to her. I had to make sure she knew how much I loved her. So, a plane was the fastest way to get to her and show her that I really meant everything I said.

           As I boarded the plane, I could feel the nerves setting in even more. I was really doing this. The last time I was on a plane, Sam and I had to find and exorcise a demon. All I could do was hope nothing supernatural was on this plane.

           “You look anxious, Son,” an older man said sitting next to me.

           “A little,” I nodded.

           “Where you headed?”

           “To see my girl,” I said, “And I hate flying.”

           “She must be something special then,” he said.

           “She’s perfect.”

tbh i dont rlly have a problem with reylo as long as yall ship it in a nice way?? like au where after kyler becomes a better person by himself or whatever he apologizes to rey and after a while of being around nice!kylo she realizes that she likes him i could get behind that…. but yall are just….either turning that creepy abduction scene into porn….or making it so that rey is just there to make kylie a better person while yall dont give a fuck about her as a character….wassup with that

Now having gotten all my judgements out of the way I’ll say this again like I said in my tags:

I knew they’d find a way to show us she is there. They didn’t have to and we could have never known for sure. But they purposely put her in the snaps and they 100% know what they are doing.

We’re The Bestest™

So, I guess it’s @stylesunchained​‘s birthday or something (although shhh, she doesn’t want to talk about it! Because at 23…).

It’s been just shy of a year since she stalked me (her words) and decided she wanted to be my friend. It was actually all a very well thought out plan, which I didn’t learn the real details of until recently (”I could tell you were a very private person, so I didn’t push” – that’s diabolical, let me tell you).

There’s nothing private anymore. Who’s sorry now?

I’m trying to get through this maintaining a casual, aloof, vaguely roasting tone, but I don’t think I’m going to succeed. ANYWAY.

 In 9 months, she’s become one of my fiercest and aggressive supporters and closest friends. She listens to me, she humors me, she lets me flip out and talk me down from the ledge, she makes sure I know that I and my feelings matter, and she also wrote me one of the very few pieces of fanfic into which I’ve been able to insert myself. AND it had smut in it, and if anyone knows how much she loves Harry, you know how much of a feat that was for her to accomplish. 

(EXCLUSIVE: footage of B writing Pretty Eyes below.)


She’s got not even half an idea how amazing she is, and it’s going to be a long struggle trying to get it in her brain, but I’m up for it, cause it won’t even measure up to a quarter of what she’s done for me (EVEN IF SHE REFUSES TO ADMIT IT). She’s kind, and funny, and loyal, and fair, and ALSO ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE EVER!? And I’m very happy to have her with me and to call her my friend. 

So, I guess it all boils down to: thanks for stalking me. 

sometimes i feel like social interactions are tests that i have to pass instead of conversations that i can actually enjoy because if i fail i lose the person

so I’m not mad at Gabriel for sending Daisy away like I totally get why he asked her to go and where he’s coming from but I’m still so sad and it’s not just a shipping thing it’s just that Robbie seemed genuinely disappointed that she was gone and Daisy was all alone again at the end of the episode and it was just like? they both had a friend! for a moment! somebody they could talk to who maybe didn’t really understand but would at least listen! and I’m just sad y’know!

the possibility that jikook could be dating makes me so happy. like, i feel stupid thinking that this ship could be romantic but idk it just seems so real bc there’s a lot of implied gestures that scream that they’re either dating or have deep feelings for each other.  it’s literally suffocating how much they adore each other. it’s like each small gesture they do towards each other has a big impact on the ppl around them, including them. and to see this friendship blossom into something more is just truly breathtaking.


TITLE: Daddy Duties

A/N: This is my first request! @always-a-marvel-addict asked if I could write a Daddy Shot with Steve! I hope you enjoy it!!

Warnings: Nothing too serious.

Tag Requests: @always-a-marvel-addict


“Sweetheart, your making a mess!” You came around to see your daughter covered spaghetti, red sauce in her hair, she gave you a grin that showed all her teeth. You could not help but smile at her cuteness, “Guess what, Sara, daddy–” Her eyes lit up at the word ‘daddy’, “DADDY!!” She kicked her little feet in the high chair,

“He’ll be home soon!” You smiled,
“I guess soon is sooner than you thought.” You spun around to see Steve placing his shield down next to the apartment door as he used his other hand to shut the door.
“STEVE!!” You ran and jumped into his arms wrapping your legs around his small waist.

He kissed you softly and hugged you tight, the moment was cut short when, “MAMA! MAMA!” Steve dropped you as his smile grew bigger, he tip toed to the corner and poked his head around, “Sssaaarrrraaaa…” Her head snapped to the sound of her daddy’s voice unable to see him, Steve was hiding behind the corner again. He slowly poked just his eyes around, Sara recognized her daddy’s blue eyes. “DADDY! DADDY!” She reached her arms toward her super soldier dad kicking her legs, he ran up to her and scooped her into his arms. Stroking her hair with one hand and bouncing her up and down, kissing her head. Seeing these moments melted your heart, Steve turned around and used his free arm to pull you into a small family group hug.

“And they lived happily ever after, the end.” Steve closed the book and looked at Sara who was asleep on her bed, he just gazed at her, smiling. He bent over and placed a kiss on her forehead and slowly made his way to the bedroom door, turning the light off. Sara’s castle night light automatically turned on, Steve once again frozen looking at his baby girl. Flash backs to the first time he seen her, her first tooth, first word, and first steps. She was a huge daddy’s girl, “Da-Da” was her first word and she only walked to him when she was learning to walk. Memories like that always flooded Steve’s mind whenever he was away on missions, and now he is home again. He walked out of her room, and into the two of you’s room. You were in the bathroom brushing your teeth as Steve was climbing into bed. You watched him in the mirror, smiling, thrilled he is finally home.
“I missed you.” You crawled into bed and right into his arms, you thought about going to a twin sized bed. Because whenever Steve was home, you always slept right on his chest. His arms wrapped around you always made you feel secure and safe,
“I missed you too doll…” He kissed the top of your head softly. You gazed up into his blue eyes, and bit your lower lip. Steve’s eyes changed from relaxed to more…desiring. He knew what that gesture meant, he didn’t hesitate to slide his hands down your back slowly. Never breaking eye contact, he slid your shirt up and over your head as he rolled you over on your back. For moments like these, your glad to have the queen sized bed. The moment was NOT lustful, but love-full. Slow passionate movements, enjoying, embracing each and every second of it.
The next morning, you were wrapped up in Steve’s arms laying on his chest. You slowly opened your eyes to see Sara standing by the bed smiling at you, causing you to jump. Which led to Steve jolting awake, “Mama! Potty! Potty!” You were about to sit up, but remembered you were not dressed. “Okay, sweety!” You seen Steve’s shirt on the other side of the bed, reaching for it to put it on, and began mommy duties. Steve rubbed his eyes at the sun shining through the curtains, getting up, he through on some underwear and began cooking breakfast.
In the middle of breakfast, Bucky walked inside the apartment, he never knocks. Sara’s eyes lit up, she LOVED her daddy, but Uncle James was another one of her favorites. “Jay! Jay!!” She jumped from her seat and ran to him, (she originally tried calling him Buck, but her 'B’s were a struggle. So, it would come out Uck. Which always caused people to raise an eyebrow at the two year old. So, for now he is Jay.)
“Hey there girl!” He scooped his niece into his arms and held her tight, “I hate to break this up, but (y/n), we have a mission.” Your heart sank, Steve just back last night, and now your having to leave. Changing into your uniform,

“Make sure Sara takes her medicine. The directions are on the container.” She has a perfect physical features of you and Steve, but she had everything Steve was born with.
“I know (y/n). I may not be Banner, but I can give Sara her medicine.” He smiled as he watched you change.

You gave Sara a hug and a kiss, and wrapped your arms around Steve’s neck. You gave him a slow kiss, “When I get back. We can have part two of last night.” Winking at the now blushing Steve Rodgers. Bucky cleared his throat, “I’m still here.”
You go to shut the door behind you, “I can’t wait babe!” Steve called as you look at him one more time before shutting the door. Sara came back with My Little Pony figurines in her hands, she looked around, “Mama?” Steve knelt down, “Mama had to go bye bye, sweety, with Uncle James.” She gave him a sad look, “She will be back later.” Steve played dress up, took her to the park, got ice-cream, watched a marathon of My Little Pony, played house, played store, and it was not even dinner time yet. His phone buzzed with a text message:

“Hey babe, the mission is taking longer we thought. I should be home sometime tomorrow night! Love you!”

He gave a sad smile, as he finished coloring a picture of a puppy with Sara. It was time for bed, Steve tucked Sara into bed and read her a story. “Good night baby doll..” He kissed her good night, “Night night daddy.” He couldn’t help but smile at his daughter. When you were gone on missions he could never sleep, he hated not being there to protect you. Bucky promised to always look after you, and he trusted Bucky with you. He should have felt more peace because not only was Bucky with you but Sam as well. His two best friends, but it didn’t. He finally fell asleep.

“STEVE!!” Bucky broke through the door, Steve flew out of bed to the scream of his friend. “What!?! Where is (y/n)!?!” Steve’s heart was pounding, “Daddy?” He turned to see Sara in her doorway sucking her thumb and holding her stuffed pink horse in the other hand, “Sweet heart!” He scooped her up in his arms as he looked back at Bucky who was pale, “(Y/n) has been captured.” Steve’s heart broke, his grip on Sara tightened at the words. Laura came in and took Sara as Steve suited up. He was quiet the entire way to the location, Bucky and Sam sat on either side of Steve. His leg was bouncing from the anxiety and anger flowing through his body. They arrived at the facility and Steve took off as soon as he could get off the jet. “Steve! Wait!” Sam called to him, Steve ignored the call of his friend. After fighting and killing several men, he came face to face with your body. Your strapped to a metal bed like structure. “(Y/n)!!” He ran to your side. His face turned pale as he seen took in the state of your body, bruised, cut up, and broken. “(y/n)!!” Tears filled his eyes as he tried to get you to respond. Silence. Bucky and Sam came into the room and froze, Steve ripped the straps of your wrists and ankles. Holding you in his arms as he fell to his knees, “Baby please!” You weren’t breathing and there was no heart beat. “No! No! No! (Y/n) please!!” His heart was beating fast as his breathes shortened, a panic attack came upon him.

Steve shot up in his bed, his pillow soaked in sweat. He was trying to catch his breathe as he looked at the digital clock, 3am, he let out a huff as he pushed the sheets back and went to the the punching bag. Time went by, his mind was flooding with the images of your deceased body in his arms. His anger and anxiety flooded, as his punches grew stronger and stronger. His focus was shifted when he heard, “Daddy?” He turned to see his little girl, with her bed head she got from you, “What is it Sara?” He moved his sweat soaked hair over, “Play wiff me!” She smiled,

“Not now Sara.”
“Pwease daddy, play wiff me.”
“No Sara.”

She made her way over to Steve and tugged his shirt, “Da–” “SARA! NO!” He boomed making the girl jump as her eyes widened and watered. Steve’s heart instantly broke at the fear in her eyes, like a piece of fine China falling onto the ground. “Baby doll, I’m sorry!” He tried to reach for her, “NO! MAMA! MAMA!” She took off running away from Steve, crying for you. Steve tried to catch up to her, but Sara had already locked herself in her room. “Sweety, please open up. I’m sorry I yelled at you.” “NO!” She yelled back from the other side of the door. Steve tried batting her out with candy, ice-cream, another My Little Pony marathon, anything to get her out. Nothing worked, Steve sat on the floor up against the pink princess bedroom door, with his head in his hands thinking of what to do. Then, he got an idea.

Sara sat in her room as she snuggled her stuffed pony, when all of a sudden she heard something.

“Been working so hard
I’m punching my card
Eight hours for what
Oh, tell me what I got”

She smiled as she wiped her eyes, she stood up and opened the door, and seen her daddy dancing in the living room. She drops her pony and takes off to dance with her daddy.

“I’ve got this feeling
That times are holding me down
I’ll hit the ceiling
Or else I’ll tear up this town”

You walk up the front door, and you commotion on the other side. Sticking your ear to the door you hear the 'Family Dance Time’ playlist, you made. You open the door and see Sara holding Steve’s fingers as they are crazy dancing around the living room. Spinning, jumping, and Steve twirling her around, you close the door and run to them joining in your favorite part of the song:

“Now I gotta cut loose, footloose
Kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footloose”

I can't use anything other than anon bc onthespectrumwriting isn't my main, but anyways! I just wanted to drop in and say that I Adore that one Y'gythgba drawing you put up today, and I think its absolutely stunning! There isn't enough solo art for that lady, and it was just awesome all around to see that on my dash this morning. <3

Wow thank you so much! I’ve read your tags and melted, it means so much <3 Y’ghythba is one of the most difficult tmnt characters for me to draw but I do really like how she looks in the show let alone her strong character. I wish we could get to know more about our lovely lizard lady, it’d be so cool to see her in action one more time. And I guess there’d be more fanart of her if we had more information about salamandian race, their planet, traditions and customs. There’s lotta potential in telling her story and connecting it with the main plot once again since now salamandrian planet is invaded with Dregg’s bugs and, dunno, maybe turts could participate in the liberation war or smth. So I hope inly we’ll see her before the show ends :)

Hey, guess what? I don’t need it to be canon to ship it! No matter how unlikely it is, I will still ship it! Klaus could build a commune, become a cult leader, and marry every single character EXCEPT Caroline. He could have children with every female except Caroline. He could put up a picture of Caroline and use it as a dart board. She could write up a spelled contract in her OWN BLOOD that she hates Klaus and will never seek him out. I WILL STILL SHIP IT!!!!!!!!! I will still read Klaroline fan fiction, watch Klaroline videos, and cruise the Tumblr tag. So stop going on the tag and trying to talk me out of it! You’re wasting your time, sweet cheeks!

I’ve been watching Grey’s Anatomy since I could remember, and I don’t know– It’s kind of getting boring now. I was pretty sure they were going to end it three years ago, but I guess not. This plot line this season is quite stupid. Jo is a bitch. Arizona is lonely. April is annoying as fuck. Meredith is epic, but yet they are hardly using her this season. Owen is being clingy. Stephanie is just dumb. Miranda is savage– I don’t know what I think about this season. Everything is just rushed in the writing and all that shit. The only good guy that is on the show is fuckin’ Alex. He’s the best character. Let him have more scenes– Actually scratch that– Let him actually have a job, thank you very much. Shoot, maybe I should just watch HTGAWM, and just be done with Grey’s and Scandal. It’s the only show that excites me on a Thursday night. 


I went to Fan Expo on Sunday as Hunk from Voltron and it was great! Got so much love from other VLD fans because GUESS WHO GIVES THE BEST HUGS!!

Got to dab with a coolio Lance (@kirschtein-sexual​). Gave hugs to a really cute Keith that had an awesome booth (pretty sure the Lance shrine is hers @5ftre)! This Pidge (@ramosaurus) looked both really cute and like they could definitely kick my ass!

Also saw 3 different Voltron shrines. #BLESSED

Timeless (part one)

Summary: When Bucky moves into the tower, he’s peeved that he will have to share a floor with you, but things change after you tell him your big secret.

Bucky x reader. FLUFF.  Word count: 1.2 k

TW: kidnapping, injections

A/N: This is part one of a multi-part fic. If you’d like to be added to my tag list so you know when I upload new fics, just let me know!

“Welcome home, Bucky,” Steve declared as he and Bucky walked into the tower together. Nat was sitting on a couch in the lounge, patiently waiting for their arrival.

“Umm…thanks, I guess,” muttered Bucky as he looked around the large room with a look of discomfort on his face. Nat stood up and walked over.

“So about your room,” she began with a hint of hesitation in her voice. Bucky cut in before she could finish.

“Room? Steve said everyone gets their own floor. Let me guess—I have to share with Steve because you all think I need some kind of babysitter.”

“Not quite. You’ll be sharing a floor, just not with me. I’ll be in and out on missions, but everyone thought it would be best to give you a few weeks to adjust before going out into the field, so you’ll be sharing a floor with Y/N since she both lives and works here. She’s super cool—I think you’ll really like her. Now, sorry to duck out, but I’ve really got to go. I’ve got to meet Sam at the Quinjet in five minutes for a mission.” Steve ran to the elevator and waved as the doors closed. Nat gestured for Bucky to follow her.

“I’ll give you a quick tour of this floor, since it’s pretty much the main one where everyone spends a lot of their free time. It’s the only one with a full kitchen—the rest just have kitchenettes—and it’s got the biggest TV and the most seating. Plus, this is where Tony’s big liquor cabinet is, so you can imagine it’s a pretty popular hangout. I’ll let Y/N give you the grand tour of the other floors.” Bucky followed Nat around the main floor, and the two of them got into the elevator. She pressed a button with your name on it, and the elevator came up to your floor.

You heard the ding of the elevator and came out of your room to meet Nat and Bucky in the common area of your floor. Nat placed herself between the two of you and kindly smiled.

“Bucky, meet Y/N, Y/N, meet Bucky. I’ve got some errands to run, but have fun getting to know each other!” You were stunned at how handsome Bucky was. You had seen pictures of him, but now that you were seeing him in person you instantly found yourself attracted to him. You smiled and presented your hand, which he timidly shook.

“Well, it’s not as fancy as some of the other floors, but I think you’ll like it up here. It’s the only living quarters with a balcony, so that’s fun. It’s very nice to meet you, Bucky. Steve’s said a lot about you, and I think we’re going to get along really well,” you told him with friendly enthusiasm.

“Hmm, nice to meet me? That’s a first—you must not have read my file,” he replied. You put your hands on your hips and tilted your head to the side in a playful manner.

“Read it cover to cover, actually. Either way, I don’t care what you did then, I care about what you are doing now, and any friend of Steve’s is a friend of mine. C’mon, I’ll show you to your room, and then we can go get your bags and move you in.” Bucky was floored by your kindness and welcoming attitude. Nobody besides Steve had really treated him that way. Sure, people were nice, but he could always sense fear behind their smiles. Somehow, this wasn’t the case with you.

After showing Bucky around the floor you would share, you gave him a tour of the entire building (a feat which took well over an hour, considering its size), and then went down to the garage to help him bring his bags up. He unpacked his things and then proceeded to spend the afternoon shut in his room like a moody teenager. After several hours, you decided to knock on his door.

“Hey Bucky, can you come meet me in the common area? I’ve got to talk to you about something.” Without a word, he came to the door and followed you out to the common area, where you had two steaming mugs of tea sitting on the coffee table. You sat down in chairs that faced one another and you took a sip of your drink.

“I thought you might like some. If you don’t want it though, no biggie,” you told him as you settled further into your seat.

“Thanks,” said Bucky, picking up his mug.

You leaned forward a little, making sure that Bucky’s attention was focused on you as you began to speak.

“I’m guessing that they didn’t tell you exactly why they stuck you with me, am I right?”

“Because you don’t go out on missions,” he said quietly. You snickered a little bit.

“Well, that’s partially true, but I’m gonna tell you a little story about how I ended up here in the first place, and then I think you’ll understand the real reason you’re staying here with me.”  You got comfortable in your seat and smiled at Bucky.

“When I was 24 years old, some friends and I saved up some money and were going on a trip through Europe. Three weeks, several countries, it was gonna be great. We were going to go to museums, landmarks, all kinds of things—we had every single day planned out down to the hour. The trip was amazing, up until two days before we were supposed to come home.” You paused, and Bucky shot you a confused look. You took a sip of your tea and continued your story.

“We were in a crowded marketplace in a small town in Russia, when I got separated from the group. I was gone for maybe two minutes, and the next thing I knew I was being thrown into the back of a van by three men before being knocked unconscious. I woke up in a cold cell, and twice a day for nine days they would send in two guys who would inject me with something. I didn’t know what it was—I figured maybe it was some sort of sedative so they could control me, or that they were trying to get me hooked on some kind of drug so I would become dependent on them, but I never felt any different afterward so I didn’t fight it. I assumed that the best plan would be to just do what they wanted and they wouldn’t hurt me. At the end of the ninth day, police came and raided the place. All of my captors were gone, so nobody was arrested for my kidnapping. The police took me to a hospital, the doctors cleared me, and I went home. I was fine, and everything was great.”

Bucky leaned toward you with curiosity in his eyes.

“Then what happened?” he asked.

“Well, I continued to be fine and things continued to be great, for about five years. Then I began noticing that my peers were starting to look a little older, and I looked the same. Bucky—that trip I went on? That was the summer of 1974. I’ve been 24 years old for the last 41 years. This October I will turn 66, but I haven’t aged a day.”
