A/N: first of all i blame @bxebxee for the cumplay that occured in this hot mess, second of all IM SORRY its so long and third taehyung ended up a lot more… toxic than i anticipated so i wanted to warn against that and that i dont condone a lot of his actions/reactions or the toxicity of the relationship but its how his character and OC came out.
Ran with the notorious Deadlock Gang as a teenager, a gang so strong it had lasted nearly a century and needed to be taken care of by Blackwatch. Trained under Gabriel Reyes at 17, joining Blackwatch where they only accept the best of the best. Extremely skilled with a gun, fires a revolver as if it were a sniper, and can lock onto targets with deadly accuracy without any known enhancements (see: a tactical visor, prosthetic, cybernetic eye) and in the dark as well. Can sit atop a train moving 640 kilometers per hour with ease, and has a bounty on his head bigger than both Junkrat and Roadhog's combined.
"wow gee oh golly darling i'm making a whole mess of myself what a complete shame ive absolutely retired and am completely useless in even the most basic maneuvers because of how rusty i am wow partners it's a sure good thing im gay and married to hanners and say a bunch of cutesy phrases and make lots of cowboy jokes along with m' hat otherwise there's no real tactical advantage in keeping a liability around. lovable and useless, can't even hold my own in combat but that archer sure as hell ain't ugly"
Not su critical, but I wish there was less human episodes and plot's loose ends weren't left forgotten for literal ages. I just, idk, feel like crewniverse wants us like lars or ronaldo too much
i mean, by definition it’s not forgotten if it’s brought up again. the show is just very long-term and demands you have a lot of patience sometimes (which makes it satisfying when it happens, but it can also be frustrating before that).
on the subject of humans: i’m not always super invested, but there’s always a rewarding or clever element. i like connie, kiki and sadie a lot. greg’s alright. the cool kids too. while onion’s not my favorite, his episodes tend to be solid and gives us interesting steven-characterization (onion gang was quite nice, they finally made me emotional about both onion and steven’s loneliness).
i have a buddy who loves lars with all his heart - i know he’s not the most popular character, but i like him alright, too. he’s the kind of teenager who can be a jerk without being a one-note bully. there’s a good post going around about you kinda need to see the humans to feel the payoff of them (spoilers) seemingly getting kidnapped in this next bomb, which will be another interesting mix of the human and magical elements of the show.
the “slice of life” elements also has another important function, which i think is vitally important - in fantasy / sci-fi stories, there’s a lot of Othering. by which i mean, strictly good vs evil escapism where a lot of the time, the enemy is so inhuman they might as well be a natural disaster, not a person. good and evil is often decided by which magical species or alien race you belong to, not who you are as a person.
slice of life is the complete opposite - you have your jerks, but they’re still human. those stories rarely end with anyone being murdered for their crimes and this being portrayed as a “victory”. it’s pretty common that while the main character’s perspective expands, we get to know even those characters who we assumed were just cruel or bullies. everyone has some struggle going on, and the punishments for their crimes are not that they’re irredeemable or die. rather, they’re allowed to actually develop and/or have nuances to them.
both sci-fi and fantasy also have an expectation of war in recent years - there’s the expectation of constant high stakes and people getting killed. the plot is expected to constantly be the focus - we need to find the Thing to fight the Dark Side. we need to get to Place before Evil gets there first. the Chosen One needs to collect all five Orbs, four of which symbolize the four friends, and the fifth one will awaken her own power. the Enemy needs to be Stopped, their reasons are (usually) irrelevant.
on the other side, slice of life is very personal: everything is character-driven, and their motivations is the main reason to watch it. i saw a lot of surprise that “yuri on ice” didn’t have a traditional villain - my response was basically “…well, yeah, it’s slice of life”. that’s kinda how it usually works. especially in anime - you may not get to know every character equally well, and some will be deeply flawed, but no one is sorted into a box labelled “inhuman” or “evil”.
so what’s my point? well, steven universe continuously trains its audience to see slice-of-life elements in the ~magical space conflict. it tells you to see the characters through a ‘human’ lens, even the characters who aren’t human. part of how it does this is by adding surprising amounts of empathy and human solutions - not just to the beach city problems, but to the gem problems as well.
the first time we see two diamonds together - the Intergalactic Tyrants™ who most fanart depict as the final boss overlords all the “less-awful” characters will unite against in a Final Battle? oh, they’re grieving the loss of their fellow diamond. blue diamond is crying. their pearls are there, standing as a reminder of the hierarchy they champion, but neither element ruins the other - they can be sympathetic and deeply flawed at the same time. when it’s towards the people they care about, they even seem well-intentioned. yellow diamond chastises blue for not being a good leader to her people.
part of the reason this seems natural is because the show has portrayed its human characters as flawed, not as a faceless mass of “good people” who must be saved from the evil alien race. so it makes sense it would work the other way around too - everyone’s got their own stuff to deal with, and everyone makes (sometimes massive) mistakes.
we’re expected to see both gems and humans as people. part of this is because of the human side of steven’s upbringing - the old crystal gems are used to meeting allies and enemies, steven is mostly used to meeting people, even if he (like everyone) has his own biases between them, or thinks some of them are “mean”.
despite some people’s consistent insistence that any jerk we’re introduced to is just a villain, that’s it, end of story, steven universe continues to challenge those assumptions. time and time again. that’s part of why it’s so vital (to me) that no one are just killed off or bubbled forever, because the show has laid the groundwork that every life is unique, and suffering is never a good thing.
it can be a trade-off, like how we’re exploring rose’s shattering of pink diamond, and yknow, there WAS a war in the style of sci-fi/fantasy, but the show is critical of that solution. pink’s shattering did not, in fact, end the conflict - her death left countless gems leaderless, mourning and FAR from ‘liberated’ (in fact, many of them hate the crystal gems), and earth was still under the slow threat of the cluster… and how was that cluster solved again? not by force, but by talking to a hostile and vicious little green alien. then getting her help to reach the huge, suffering eldritch abomination in the center of the earth… which was also stopped by communication, not by force.
the human side of the show helps steven cope with gem life, make connections that are important to him, develop his character and fuel his desire to help.
i know some will insist these are unrelated, but i think without steven’s human side, he would really “just” be another crystal gem. an empathetic one, who is curious about people, but not on this level. not one who opposes the idea of not just shattering, but wants to find a way to connect with everyone (as he is like no one and everyone), and has the kind of boundless optimism where he refuses to accept that this is just “the way things are”, or that suffering is ever necessary. everything is always changing on earth, and because of that, steven wants to believe everything can always change.
oh DO I?? Yuri!!! On Ice is the best thing to ever happen to me in all my years of existence. Everything about it is pure and good. All of the characters are so real, and their unique stories are all so well thought out. And HOW is Victor and Yuuri's relationship even REAL. I'm still in disbelief that they are canon it's too much for me to handled. They are for real life engaged to be married in a happy and healthy relationship that will never end. How have we been so blessed. How is it that I just so happen to be alive at the same time this miracle has come into this cold and unforgiving world. I did not know true happiness until I found this masterpiece.
what i mean:
It's a film that, essentially suffers from an existential crisis throughout the entire two hours it runs. There's no world building whatsoever, leaving too many unanswered questions the audience in regards to the magic and lore of the land. It's inferred the trolls know everything there is to know about magic, but it does not explain how Elsa recieved her powers in the first place, leaving a pretty big unanswered question. Also, the decision to take a fantasy race usually isolated from magicks as the main sage magicians was an ...interesting choice, and would have worked out a bit better if the world was built up more. The plot is all over the place, with there being no clear antagonist until the final arc of the movie. Is the Duke of Weaselton supposed to be the antagonist? No, and he honestly doesn't even belong in the movie: in what way does this character move forward the plot? He doesn't, so why is he given such emphasis? Is Elsa supposed to be the antagonist? Through the film the audience is constantly being given conflicting views as to whether or not we are supposed to sympathsize with her or hate her, and we're never given our answer until the final arc of the movie, which is, ironically, when the real antagonist show his face: Hans. Since he is introduced as he antagonist in the final arc, it makes Hans' development as a villain feel rushed and unnatural. Such a sudden heel-face turn from charming benevolent prince to cold-blooded killer feels wrong, and considering there was no foreshadowing or dramatic irony leading up the reveal, it comes as a shock to even the most watchful moviegoers. Beyond the shock response, there is no reason for the audience to hate Hans, making him an ineffective villain all in all. The audience only hates him because he betrayed the trust that was willingly given in the first half of the film. Yes, he wants to usurp the throne and kill everyone off, but wouldn't that incentive be more effective if it were presented as such from the beginning of the movie? Give the viewers hints and clues that he is not what he seems, making the reveal of his plan much more suspenseful. Additionally, if it were addressed from the beginning, a large amount of the aimless plotless wandering that plagued most of the first three-quarters of the movie would be practically non-existant. In addition, the shock factor response wears off eventually; the impact of his betrayal means less and less to the audience each time they watch it. Part of the reason of the weakness and confusion in the beginning also stems from the fact that the movie is trying to juggle too many characters. Many named characters are completely unneeded and did not need to steal screentime (and by extension, valuble character development) from the main characters (Anna, Elsa, Kristoff, and I guess Hans). And the lack of character development is bad. Really bad. Anna doesn't feel like a real person, even by Disney standards. Elsa is a bit more believable, but her "development" is rushed and inferred instead of shown to the audience as it should be. Why was there such an emphasis on the parents in the beginning if they were only going to be killed off for plot fuel? And as an audience member, I did not feel any sadness for their death or for how Anna and Elsa were grieving. Having Elsa locked in her room for upmost of ten years was just...weird. There was absolutely nothing that justified it, making the isolation feel like a cheap way out for the writers to transition from childhood to adulthood. And beyond that, Arendelle is shown to be a peaceful kingdom, so it makes no sense that Anna would not be allowed to leave the castle and walk amongst the city. If magic exists in this world, why was Elsa locked away? Why was it a secret? All of these questions stem from weak worldbuilding that justifies very little of the events of the movie. There are so many unanswered questions that rise up from what happens inbetween childhood and adulthood. Is there a puppet monarch? Was magic seen as something negative or unknown? Why the trolls. Why the trolls. I'm sorry I just do not understand the trolls. The romantic subplot again ties into making the trolls feel even more forced and unneeded and the Hans reveal stale, I don't need to go into this. From a technically standpoint, the animation is subpar compared to its contempararies. Rise of the Guardians, a movie made a year before Frozen, had better ice effects. The particle effects and textures were nothing to write home about and the numerous clipping issues are clear evidence that the final product was rushed. The character design is the biggest complaint everyone has heard the most, but, Jesus Christ, oh my god it's bad. There's virtually no variation in character design. The facial structure of all the women are practically identical. Elsa, Anna, their mother, even Rapunzel all look 100% identical. Perhaps that wouldn't be such a problem if their body types were the same as well. There's no power of silouette in the film, something that is absolutely crucial to animated film, making Anna and Elsa blend together not only in the film, but in the industry itself. They do not stand out. They are blank and bland. The music is the only good thing, and that's only considering some songs. "Let it Go" and "First Time in Forever" are strong, powerhouse showtunes that actually move the plot forward, as songs in a musical should, but "Fixer-Upper" and "Love is an Open Door," while good, solid songs, do relatively nothing for the plot can could be omitted without sacrificing anything. "In Summer" is a total joke song that literally fades into nothing--I could not recall the tune if I tried, and "Do You Wanna Build a Snowman?" has a lot of potential but is, esentially, the same chorus repeated with little to no transition three times. It doesn't help that the song is also the most awkward contrived timeskip in the history of awkward contrived timeskips, again because it is never explained why Elsa is locked in her room at all. And the trolls and the--oh god. Please, all artists and writers, do NOT overlook the importance of worldbuilding. Even the dialogue is mediocre and does nothing to immerse the characters into the world around them. The resulting product is nothing but two hours of mediocrity masquerading as the best film of the decade in commercialization and ticket sales, but ultimately does nothing but leave a bad taste in the audience's mouth and will encourage Disney to continue making mediocre movies because they know they will sell and sell well.

Even months after I’ve beaten this game this scene and just Hilda in general still destroy me. THE FIRST TIME I WATCHED THE ENDING SCENE I CRIED SO HARD AND I EVEN KNEW WHAT WAS GONNA HAPPEN CUZ I WAS SPOILED BEFOREHAND ｡･ﾟヾ(✦థ ｪ థ)ﾉ｡ﾟ･｡ I was not expecting to be so emotional with this game why this.
This is something I’ve been wanting to draw for months pretty much since I first beat the game but for the life of me I could not get the pose right. I’ve tried drawing it so many times it’s so bad aierhogih Leaning over necks and slouched positions can be so terrible to draw sometimes its just uGH (」゜ロ゜)」 BUT I FOUND A GOOD REFERENCE TO STUDY AND FINALLY GOT IT RIGHT AND I’M SOOOOO HAPPY WITH HOW IT CAME OUT OIAROIGH It took me a little bit to get it going smoothly but once I did I had so much fun with it. Especially the shading, I’m particularly proud of how it came out (ﾉ´ヮ´)ﾉ*:･ﾟ✧
where do the lions come in, are they their pet cats?
Pidge: Lions? oh you mean the show Allura named the cafe after. Naw not really. Coran says she tried to keep to the theme of the original show at first but it kinda fell apart when no one got it cause it was such an old show.
Lance: It didn’t age well. So of course, no one would get it.
Hunk: Lance. what are you talking about? You’re a huge fan of that show. You even had one of the lion robots when you were a kid.
Lance: Hunk… shush!
Keith:… you… you had one too?
Lance: Uh.. yeah. But I think I gave it away when I was really young, to one of my cousins.
Keith: … oh.
A.N. The cats would have been good. But its kinda hard to have a pet in the city here. I know, or I would have one ( T_T ) oh well. I wonder what Keith is so bothered about.
I mean seriously, its got everything this website always bitches about other shows missing.
Strong Female Leads (actually more female leads than males)
Important POC (one of which is actually in charge of the entire warehouse)
Openly homosexual character who is not just a token gay, or a stereotype in any way, and is written no differently than any other character except that he is gay.
An openly BISEXUAL character
Umong others are Artie who is Jewish, the Regents (Who are basically like the board of trustees in charge of making decisions) are all middle class, blue collar workers (because governments and rich corporations cant be trusted with that kind of power) There are no flat characters, everyone is written extremely well. Even the antagonists can be sympathized with. and the “Good Guys” don’t always make good decisions. Everyone is a person, who makes both good and bad decisions, each character has their own personal motives and insecurities and internal battles to face that are ALWAYS PRESENT even when its not the central focus of the episode. (which is not always the case with TV shows).
everyone’s backstory is EXTREMELY detailed and well thought out, and that plays to their character’s insecurities and such.
And not to mention they totally say fuck you to gender roles.
Oh and mark Sheppard is in it too.
So yeah basically everyone needs to go watch warehouse 13 right now its a super amazing show and you will absolutely love it.
What if...Kylo makes up a fake persona (like Matt but no disguise) and starts a relationship with Hux, who has no idea he's the same person? It's all well and good, Hux might even be in /love/ with him. But he can't help still pining after his broody co-commander, and soon enough a little guilt turns into a LOT of guilt when Kylo starts fucking him in dark corridors and empty utility rooms, never completely undressing, never removing his helmet.
oh my GOD you’ve no idea how much I love this
Hux having dinner with ‘Ben’, a quiet but alluring officer with beautiful hair and striking features that stay with Hux even when he closes his eyes, Ben is everything soft that Hux needs and he may absolutely be falling in love with him
but Kylo is the kind of hurt that Hux needs, fucking him roughly down quiet corridors, only Kylo’s cock and Hux’s asshole out, all other skin hidden, trying to hide their secrets
and Hux feels terrible on Ben–that he meets up with his lover with Kylo’s ashy smell on his uniform but Ben never comments
all is well until the Starkiller disaster and Hux is ordered to rescue Kylo from the snow–and Hux is so glad that Ben is on board the Finalizer–but fuck, Hux’s heart stops dead in his chest when he sees Ben–Kylo–lying unconscious and bleeding in the snow, muttering Hux’s name like it’s the last word he wants to say and suddenly, Hux realises what’s been going on
but which is the real one? Ben, the soft lover who craves attention or Kylo, the rough knight with hard hands and an even harder heart
Hux makes it his mission to find out who it is that he’s in love with
As the elevator doors dinged, you straightened out your blouse with your free hand and hoisted a tray of various drinks with the other. Stepping into the office, you were met with various hollers and excited cheers.
“Y/N! You’re a godsend!” your colleague John Laurens smiled as he stood up from his office chair and stretched. “Alex, your assistant is my favourite person right now!”
Your pseudo-boss, Alexander Hamilton laughed at his excitable freckled friend in response and rubbed his eyes.
“You guys have been grinding at this case all night, it’s the least i could do!” you giggled “okay, Mr. Hamilton, a black coffee for you,” you placed his coffee on his desk. “Mr. Laurens, three cream and two sweeteners,” he literally beamed at you when you placed it down and you offered a kind smile back. “Monsieur Lafayette, a large cappuccino.” as you handed the drink to him, a wink was sent in your direction causing you to blush.
“Merci Mlle. L/N” he smiled, raising the paper cup to you and taking a sip.
“And Mr. Mulligan, a hot chocolate.” your smile faded when you realised you had forgotten to get his drink. “Shoot, i’m so sorry. I knew i forgot something, i’ll just run out again and get you new one.”
He began to shake his head with a kind smile when the office manager’s door opened.
“Oh great! Coffee!” the loud southern drawl of your manager resonated through the open office room. You had only come face-to-face with him a couple of times but from the horror stories that Hamilton had told you, that was more than enough.
Your back was still facing the door as a large hand lightly placed itself on your shoulder.
“Sorry Jefferson, It seems like you were a little too late, Y/N just came back from her coffee run.” Alex Boasted, taking a sip of his drink and leaning back.
You knew Hamilton might get upset with you but you turned to the man in a purple dress shirt. “I can go get you something, Mr. Jefferson. I forgot Mr. Mulligan’s drink, so i have to go back out anyway.”
“I need to stretch my legs, so why don’t i come with you.” he smiled. “Wait here while i go get my jacket.”
Hamilton looked to you with concern once Jefferson was back in his office. “Are you gonna be okay with this Y/N?”
You were thankful that he wasn’t upset with you and you waved off his concern. “I’ll Be fine, Mr. Hamilton. It’s pretty late, it’s probably a good thing that i’ll have a ‘buddy”
He rolled his eyes at your playful use of the word ‘buddy’ and smiled “okay, shoot any of us a text if anything goes wrong.” he scrunched his nose up “I don’t trust him.”
Hamilton quickly shut up as the door opened. “Ready to go Y/N?” Mr. Jefferson spoke up, sounding irritated out of seemingly nowhere. Despite his sudden mood shift, he held out his arm which you reluctantly took.
When you got to the street you smiled in awe at the sight of the bustling city. It was the middle of the night and yet it was still teeming with life.
“New York is amazing, isn’t it? Mr. Jefferson spoke up, taking in the awe on your face.
You nodded wordlessly and he chuckled. “You new to the city?”
You nodded again. He sighed. “I remember my first full day in the city. I had just gotten back from France and it was instantly such a change of pace.”
You studied his face as he continued to speak about his early life and his travels, he spoke with such enthusiasm. He described everything in great detail and you found yourself wishing that you had been able to see all the beautiful places he described.
He suddenly halted outside the same cafe you had been at earlier and smiled. “I assume this is the coffee shop you go to.”
“How’d you guess?” you smiled.
“Well it is one of the only 24 hour cafes around here, and I’ll be honest, I’ve seen you here quite a few times.” he spoke, scratching the back of his neck.
You feigned offence. “And you never said hi? Mr. Jefferson that is unacceptable.”
He stiffened a little and his smile dropped as the two of you walked in and joined the line. “Well Y/N, believe it or not, I always had an inkling of an idea that you weren’t the fondest of me. I know Hamilton doesn’t exactly praise my existence.”
You bit your lip, trying to think of what to say.
You amicably bumped your shoulder into his chest. “Hey, I’m capable of making my own judgements on character.”
A smile slowly made its way onto his face. “Oh Yeah? And how am i doing?”
“You’re an absolute delight.”
You hadn’t even noticed that the line had dwindled down.
“Ah! Mr. Thomas! Good to see you again! And Ms. Y/N, back so soon? You two know each other?” the older woman behind the counter grinned.
“Mrs. Ricci, it’s good to see you too!” Thomas smiled back.
“You want your regular?” she asked causing you to wiggle your eyebrows at Mr. Jefferson. “you have a regular?”
He blushed, verbally disregarding your comment. “Yes Mrs. Ricci that would be great.” He looked to you. “Did you want anything?”
“Don’t worry about me, i’m just going to get Mr. Mulligan his hot chocolate.” your eyes wandered to the treats that decorated the glass case to the right of you and your stomach rumbled. Thomas followed your eyes and looked at you with concern. “When was the last time you ate?”
You waved him off. “I had a large breakfast. Like I said, don’t worry about me.”
Mr. Jefferson looked to Mrs. Ricci “could I also get a large hot chocolate, a chamomile tea and a two cheese bagels with cream cheese all to go?”
“Thomas.” you groaned.
Your eyes were wide as you realized what you had just said. You took a small step away from him and cleared your throat. “Sorry, Mr. Jefferson, that was out of line of me.”
He sighed and took out his wallet, tossing a few bills on the counter.
Mrs. Ricci placed down a brown takeout bag and a tray of drinks with a smile before grasping the money on the counter and handing him the change.
“Thank you.” he said, grabbing the bag and tray somehow in one hand, placing the other on the small of your back before leading you out the small cafe.
The walk back was silent and you felt your phone buzz in you purse.
It was from Hamilton. ‘U ok? Ur taking a long time.’
You rolled your eyes and slid open your lock screen.
‘Yes I’m fine Mr Hamilton :) we’re on our way back now.’
You yawned and felt Mr. Jefferson’s light grip on your back pull you a little closer. “tired? “ he asked.
You nodded lazily, suddenly feeling the weight of the day on your shoulders. You wouldn’t tell Mr. Jefferson due to his luxurious status, but you worked two jobs in order to pay off your loans and bills.
The two of you had reached the elevator and in your tired stupor, you rest your head on his shoulder and closed your eyes. He held you tighter and rest his chin on your head. You could barely make out Mr. Jefferson pressing way too many elevator buttons, but you could care less, you were so tired and he was so comfy.
You took in his scent loudly causing a deep rumble to make it’s way through his chest.
He smelled like cinnamon and vanilla, but there was a slight undertone of a pine underneath it.
You basked in his warmth until he softly called your name. “Y/N.” You raised your head. “We’re almost at our floor.”
You pouted to yourself and detached yourself from him. He handed you the hot chocolate and winked at you, waving the bag of food with a cunning smirk.
You looked at him questioningly as the door opened.
He glanced at you once more before wordlessly strutted to his office, closing the door behind him as you walked out slowly behind him. “Mr. Mulligan? I have your hot chocolate.”
“Thank you so much Y/N” he replied.
Laurens took in your current state. “Y/N, you look exhausted, why don’t you sit down?”
Before you could take Laurens up on his offer, Mr. Jefferson’s door opened.
He offered you a secret smile before his authoritative voice filled up the office room. “Ms. L/N, can i speak with you in my office.
Summary : You’re Peggy Carters grand daughter, living as much as a normal life as you can with a giant secret weighing on your shoulders. What happens when you ripped from your normal life, and thrown into the avengers hands?
Avoiding Steve wasn’t as easy as you hoped . Its been 2 days since the awkard situation in the gym, and you’ve barely managed to dodge him.
“ Go away !” you grunt as you roll face first into your pillow . Someone’s been incessantly pounding on your door for about 5 straight minutes. You aren’t feeling today , you just want to stay buried in your blankets all day . The knocking stops, but you hear your door being opened.
“ Go away doesn’t mean come in.” you mumble . Who the hell would have enough balls to wake me up AND come In my room ?
"Its time to get up Doll, you already missed training.“ Barnes .
You become slightly self conscious when you feel him lift the blanket from your body . You sleep in a baggy tee and cheeky underwear.
” Dude!“ you scramble to grab the blanket only to see he already tossed it to the floor. He lets out a long whistle while his eyes roam from your ass down your bare legs.
” Nice PJs dollface. “ he winks , making your blush even worse. Hes going to make me get up . I need to get him to let me stay in my damn bed. You send him a sly smirk,
” You know Barnes, there’s room in my bed for one more .“ Please Work .
Bucky mirrors your smirk, he crawls his way up your bed, caging you with his hands on either side of your head. Oh God, I think this was the best idea I ever had.
” Ill have to take you up on that offer another time, Clint made blueberry pancakes & I know those are your favorites. “ Damn it Bucky .
His body moves away from you quickly, and before you know it your body is being thrown over his shoulder. You let out a squeak as he leaves your room with you in tow.
” Buck I don’t have pants on ! “
” Youll be fine. I don’t think anyone will mind the view .“ you feel his shoulders shake as he laughs.
You finally arrive in the kitchen, letting out a grumble as Bucky places you into a chair. He sends you a wink , then goes and grabs two plates of pancakes. He sits next to you , patting your thigh as he does.
” Don’t be grumpy doll, atleast you got out of training today . “
You sigh , you reach for the whipped cream infront of you and start drowning your pancakes in it , then do the same with the syrup .
” Well goodmorning to you too Dear.“ Tony says from across the table . You were so busy being crabby you didn’t even notice the rest of the team sitting at the table.
” Yeah , real good morning Tony.“
” Good morning Y/n.“ Steve says , you look up and see him seated directly across from him . Oh shit.
” Morning Steve. “ So much for trying to keep avoiding him .
Breakfast goes quickly, small talk floats around the table but you mainly keep your focus on your food. Wanda volunteers to do the dishes, and you don’t think its possible to love her more . You kiss her and Clint on the cheeks, then go to leave the kitchen with everyone else, but Youre stopped by a hand around your wrist, you whip around , your eyes locking with Steves.
” Can we talk?“ No
” Sure.“ you follow him out to the tv area . He drops down onto the couch, patting the open spot next to him .
” Id rather not get too comfortable, my beds waiting for me.“ You say with a laugh , he smiles back making the mood a little less weird.
” Listen , about the other day -“
” Steve , we don’t have to talk about It. “ you sigh , I really don’t want to do this now, or ever.
” Obviously we do , you’ve been avoiding me . And don’t say you haven’t, I’m not blind Y/n . I was just - I think I was just trying to deal with the breakup and in the moment I thought maybe you - “
” Maybe I what Steve? Wanted to kiss my grandmothers, and cousins ex lover? I’m not that kind of girl .“ you scoff, turning to leave.
” I’m not saying you are ! its just - theres something about you . I-“
” Steve, youre obviously upset about your breakup . But I’m not a rebound, hell, no offense but I will never see you as anything more than a friend & team mate. It just wouldn’t feel right. My grandmother loved you , I know she loved my grandpa, but you were different for her. Her lost love. Being with you in any way other than friendly is wrong to me , seeing you and Sharon together was so fucking weird. “ you laugh , you sit next to him ,taking his hand in yours and placing them on his leg.
” You are a fantastic person Steve, anyone would be lucky to have you in their life. But just because I’m a Carter doesn’t mean we would be good together. I may be a lot like Peggy , but I’m not her. I’m not going to be her replacement .“
Steve sighs and squeezes your hand .
” You’re right , Peggy is just all ive ever known, ya know? She was the first woman to show any interested in me before I was Captain America. I see the same traits in you , the way you speak, your actions, I think I just got a hazed and thought maybe there was a chance . Its hard , being in this world, in this decade, everything is different. I think being with Sharon, made me feel a little more familiar, and maybe I hoped you would magnify that feeling. “ His shoulders slump as his confession . You can see why Peggy loved him , you wish you didn’t feel like it was so wrong because you COULD see yourself with him ; hes just your type.
You lean in, kissing his cheek . ” I know this is different, and I cant imagine how you feel Steve. But I am here for you , growing up hearing all those stories about you; about how great, brave and sweet you are made you one of my heroes my entire life. I want to be close to you , be your friend and be here when you need me . “
” I think id like that.“ he replies with a smile,
” Good, because I wasn’t giving you a choice Rogers. “ The two of you laugh , when you stand you tug his hand so that hes standing infront of you . You throw your arms around his waist , hugging him tightly . He returns the embrace, leaving a quick kiss to your forehead before you part.
” Alright, I’m going back to bed" You send him a mock salute, “ Goodnight Captain.”
" Y/n , its like noon !“ he shouts, but youre already on your way the elevator. That wasn’t so bad afterall .
Being around Steve is easy , you fall into a quick friendship and completely push aside the weird day in the gym . You’ve caught yourself thinking about being more than friends with him, but you always stop yourself to remind you that its not an option. You train with him and Bucky in the mornings now, then after you shower you watch movies to try and help them catch up on what they missed. Some days its just you & Steve when Bucky opts out to take a nap instead . Its never been just you and Buck , until today .
” Cant you give the mission to someone else!? We were going to start Boy meets world today!“ you whine . Steve chuckles, placing the last of his gear on .
” No can do , It should be a quick mission though , just watch something else and hopefully ill be back by tomorrow so we can start it .“ you groan dramatically, making him let out loud laugh .
” You’ll have fun without me. " You follow behind him until you arrive at the hangar.
“ Be safe, alright? ” you say quietly .
“ And use a fucking parachute Punk.” Buckys voice appears from behind you.
Steve rolls his eyes, but pulls Bucky into a hug. How cute.
He pulls you in next, holding you tightly to his body . You say another goodbye & watch as the jet takes off, then grab onto Buckys hand. He always looks surprised when you grab his metal hand, like he cant believe you aren’t scared of it.
" Lets go Sergeant, looks like we are starting Disney movies today .“ He doesn’t protest, just lets you drag him along until you guys reach the communal Tv room.
Bucky plops on the couch, watching while you flip over cushions and fling blankets around until you find the remote.
You finally find it , when you turn to sit on the couch though you see that Bucky manages to take up the entire thing.
” Move it or lose it Barnes. “ you warn playfully,
” Doll theres another couch .“
” Yeah but this one is right in the center, best view of the TV!“ you argue back .
He shrugs and doesn’t move, Fine, you want to play it this way ? You don’t think twice about it , as you move and sit yourself on top of him . He lets out a oompf sound as you adujust yourself on him.
” This is not comfy.“ he pouts.
You send him a ’ tough shit’ smile before scrolling through the movies on the screen . Bucky grabs onto your waist , moving himself so hes no longer laying down , but sitting up with you on his lap . I win.
You move to sit next to him , but his grip on your waist tightens.
” Where do you think youre going?“ he asks, pulling your back to you back is resting against his chest.
” To sit next to you?“ you question , trying once again to move off him.
” You started this, you’re staying right here Doll.“ his voice is firm, but playful . Why did that just slightly turn me on , is that weird? You let out a sigh of defeat, letting your body relax against his , separating your legs so they rest on the sides of his.
You chose Cinderella to start the marathon, deciding that you don’t really want to watch them all in order . As the movie begins you start to squirm in Buckys lap . His hands migrated from you hips, to resting on your thighs. Everytime you move even the tiniest bit, you can feel his fingers slightly dig into your bare thighs; and you love it.You and the boys always want to be comfy during your movies, so you all wear your pajamas . Today you chose light pink shorts, and a baggy black tee ; Bucky went with comfy silver gym shorts and a white tee . No matter how simple the clothes, him and steve always manage to look like God in them and it drives you nuts.
” Buck this is so not comfy .“you whine, wiggling around once again . His hands hold you in place , his fingers digging a little harder into your thighs and pulling a soft , unexpected( & unwanted) moan from you. oh balls, I hope he didn’t hear that.
You feel him shift behind you , then his breath hits your ear, ” That was a cute little moan there Doll. “ For fucks sake. You look over your shoulder, catching the smirk on his face. OH so we are playing that kinda game ?
You send him a wicked grin, before experimentally grinding yourself slowly down on his lap. You hear his breath hitch ,letting you know you got him. You repeat your action again, this time placing your hands over his on your thighs, and slightly arching your back .
” Don’t start something you aren’t going to finish Y/n .“ he warns ,his lips back at your ear again . This time though, they graze against it, making you have to bite back a whimper. You can feel yourself getting more and more turned on as you disregard his warning and continue moving yourself against him. The way his hard bulge moves against you feels way to good; for the both of you . His hands go back to your waist, guiding your movement and pulling small groans from him . You manage to twirl yourself around so youre facing him while you straddle his lap . His eyes are completely lust blown, and his lips are parted. His hands stay at you hips, still moving you against him . You place your hands on his shoulder to hold you up, the rubberband in your stomach is so tightly wound your positive its going to snap within seconds.
” Do you like this doll, rubbing against me like this?“ his voice was raspy, making you internally groan at how much hotter it made all this.
” Feels like youre enjoying his just as much as me .“ you quip , pushing down a little harder as you grind .
Bucky leans in, but just as his lips are about to hit yours , you both hear the elevator ding. The sound of footsteps knocks you out of your horny daze, making you fling yourself onto the couch next to him . You grab the closest blanket and toss it over both of your laps. You look over to Bucky, hoping your face doesn’t match his ; he is flushes, and you can he his chest rising and falling quickly. If he looks like that, I can only imagine how crazy I must look .
” You guys started Disney and didn’t call me !?“ Sam bellows from the doorway . Bucky sighs, pinching the bridge of his nose when Sam lays on the other couch . You send Sam a smile, and turn your attention back to the movie. Well, you try to at least, your mind cant seem to stop thinking about the way it felt to be on the super soldiers lap ; and how much you want to just climb back on him.
