Imagine Natasha with Steve's shield? And that turning him on?
Admittedly, he’d been a little busy in Sokovia to notice Natasha
using his shield. It wouldn’t have
surprised him then to see how fluidly she moved with it, just like it didn’t
surprise him now, watching her sparr with him after having managed to relieve
him of his shield.
What was surprising was
his distraction. The one in his pants-area. It wasn’t entirely unexpected. He’d always found her sexy. Not her body (yes, her body but not just
that), but she was witty and capable and strategic and if he was honest, she
was someone with that (sort of) shared life experience and he always felt a
sense of calm settle over him when they fought side-by-side. So he knew he was a little smitten.
He just wasn’t counting on
the shield. He also wasn’t counting on
how long he took to think through all of that and before he knew it, he wasn’t
staring at her face, features set in determination (and something…guarded around her eyes, something she
was trying to keep secret, maybe), shield at the ready, but rather he was
staring at the rafters of the training space.

He huffed a laugh and used
his supersoldier reflexes to his advantage, sweeping her legs out from under
her and twisting so he’d disarmed her and had her pinned. He tried not to look too smug and mostly
succeeded. He was just glad he managed
to keep his hips from touching any part of her.
Natasha lifted one eyebrow
and shifted so that she was pressed flush against him. “You gonna gloat all day, or are you gonna
Steve didn’t waste time
being awestruck, and leaned forward.
My lats have ripped a few dresses and I can’t really wear crop tops anymore. My only suiting that still fits are jackets that used to be too big and pants with spandex. I feel uncomfortable in most of the formalwear I would’ve bought off the rack in high school. I’ve gained about 15lbs since freshman year of college.
And my relationship with myself and my body has never been better. I want a bigger squat more than I want to look good in pants and I want a big deadlift more than I want to wear spaghetti straps. I worked really fucking hard to get here.
When I was a teenager, I desperately wanted to be tall because I wanted to wear Cheap Monday jeans–being a size 0 didn’t change that. Getting fucking strong did.
