Concept: Shifter AU where everyone's forms are intimidating predators. Thor is a lion, Bucky and Steve are wolves, Rhodey is a bear etc. Nobody knows what Tony is. He's very private and refuses to shift in front of them even when he's injured and it would help him heal. Until one day he's hurt so bad it's not a decision. His body just does it. They pry open the suit to find a smol, fluffy, angry, black housecat. He only gets angrier when Bucky pins him between his paws for cuddling/grooming.

Now hold on a second, are we talking this smol, fluffy, angry housecat? Emphasis on smol

Or this one for the madz?

Or this one for the foof?

Because either way I can well imagine his hissing for either one as the team try to grab him out of the suit but he’s injured and his instincts are going crazy and it’s fight or flight here so he’s ready to throw down, big and tall be damn. 

So he’s hissing, he’s scratching, has his ears down and his fluff up, but the big people won’t leave him alone, then the big people shift and he’s facing wolves, a lion, a bear, falcon and hawk, lynx and more and he for sure doesn’t want to be there so the moment he can he runs, but big lion puts his paw down like nothing and stops him, he tries to go around bug big bear is sitting there and throws his weight down to block, lynx keeps jumping and mimicking his movements to stop him and falcon and hawk are following above him.

Then wolves begin moving in and out of desperation he hides. Bear smells familiar and doesn’t look hostile so he hides under his foof, close to his belly, as the wolves move closer. They keep a distance, almost within paw striking reach, but just so. Bear doesn’t move to hurt and instead actually leans forward to obscure him from sight with the foof. ‘Safety,’ Tony’s mind manages to supply eventually. Bear isn’t enemy. Wolves are. 

One wolf, dark in fur and metal on a leg, slumps on his belly and whines, pawing sadly at Tony. The other wolf, fur so bright it almost look like the sun, rests on his belly, too and has his tail wagging, mouth open and tongue hanging out in a grin. 

Dark wolf gets closer and closer, snout almost touching him. Tony doesn’t strike, waiting to see what happens, waiting for a possible fight. Dark wolf stops just short of snout touching Tony’s snout and waits, waits so long Tony starts to think the worst. He’s ready to bite down, tension so strong. Then a big, pink tongue sticks out and licks from his snout up to his ears and Tony is so shocked he’s left gaping. 

The belly he hides moves, inhaling and exhaling in silent laughter, but Tony is still gaping. Then gold wolf moves to lick as well and no, absolutely not! How dare -

He tries to hide further in bear but bear is a traitor as he moves to reveal him and wolf paws pin him down and it’s dark wolf holding him and dragging him to his chest to hold, licking everywhere. Tony doesn’t strike, tries to run, but wolf is strong and won’t let go. 

Tails are wagging and he’s angry but all bear, lion, lynx, hawk and falcon and others do is stand there and watch.

When Tony’s mind comes back and instincts are down he’ll forever deny Bucky carrying him from the scruff back to their home happening. And he’ll never tell you how he was placed in the middle of the cuddle pile. 

How to write your book step 218

Like what you do. 

Yes. Writing is hard and at times you are going to wonder why you are doing this and you’ll probably give up a little bit…. LISTEN to yourself when this criticism appears, but do not quit. If you don’t like what you are writing, don’t persevere regardless, persevere, with intent. Make it something to like. Like what you do. Do what you like. You might not always actively enjoy it, but if you don’t like what you are writing, then, most likely, that distaste will carry through into your writing and it will be unlikeable. 

Don’t be afraid of change.

If you don’t like what you are doing, then change it.

"You dropped it; finders keepers" IM DEAD XD also I wasn't really looking for a shock moment I mostly just wanted to see bucky's fixation on tony and his way of looking at the world.

Rhodey, outraged, summoning the War Machine armor: i didn’t drop SHIT

Mm! To me it seems like a lot of people really adore that ‘shock and awe’ moment of ‘here it is, this is it, this person is shining and amazing and i have immediately fallen in love and will devote myself from here on out’ - and I love it too, honestly, but I’ve never been able to write it. That’s not how I write attraction and love *shrug* The more I struggled to answer your ask to my satisfaction, the more confused and twisted up i made myself lmao. I really just take Bucky’s fixation on Tony for granted. 

So the thing about Bucky is that despite everything, he stockholmed himself to his captors, even when they brutalized him. That takes a special level of survival drive - a special level of incredible emotional and psychological damage. I rarely bother with writing a Bucky that thinks he ‘can become’ a Real Boy or even wants to become a ‘real boy.’ I’m honestly too convinced of the fact that he’s too damaged to allow that kind of concept to cross his mind out of pure self preservation. He doesn’t get frustrated with himself over his PTSD and breaks from reality because that’s just How Bucky Barnes Functions. That’s just business as usual for him.

He does get frustrated when other people expect him to behave as a standard issue human, though, because why would he? Spring a surprise party on him and almost get shot in the face, and honestly that’s your own fault because what did you think was going to happen, really?? Whereas if Natasha or Tony nearly shoot you in the face over a surprise party, they’ll be embarrassed and give themselves a hard time about it. Instead of, you know, correctly wondering what the fuck people who know you have PTSD and hyper-vigilance issues thought they were doing.

So anyway, Bucky and his weird fixation on Tony. I phrase it this way because in the end, all things end up coming back to Tony with Bucky. He’s more than happy to live out his life in a rural village doing handy work for dinner. Bucky’s motivations mostly revolve around ‘what can I do that will cause the least amount of damage to everyone involved.’ He basically wants to live quietly while helping people, which is something native to his basic personality. 

Prior to Siberia, Bucky would have been willing to fight whatever ‘good fight’ Steve brought to his door if it were necessary (his opinion previous to the bombing was ‘you have a perfectly good team, steve, fuck off’ but then he got backed into a corner and took the best way out of it). Bucky doesn’t want to fight. He’s an incredibly effective weapon. People will die.

Then you bring him into contact with Tony Stark, and whereas before that, Tony Stark is like a talisman against the destruction wrought by the Winter Soldier (kind of a forest fire analogy, and a weird, twisted one, since Tony was never actually in danger from the winter soldier), Bucky basically gets all his Winter Soldier baggage rubbed in his face like a naughty dog. He spent years unable to escape the legacy of Stark Industries no matter where he went, carefully attaching all this baggage to Tony Stark, and now Tony Stark is in his face demanding answers, demanding he take responsibility and quit pretending what happened doesn’t matter.

Bucky would have been weird about any of the survivors of families he’s decimated. The fact that Tony ties in closer to his forgotten past and could-have-been future than the others is only salt on the wound. The fact that Steve and the rest of the team are tied up in knots about Tony Stark only exacerbates the situation. Bucky hasn’t been able to escape the legacy of Tony Stark since he got away from Hydra. He’s like some kind of omnipresent force of nature, like the sun if the sun wanted you to answer to your sins.

HYDRA happened to Bucky. Steve happened to Bucky. But Bucky happened to Tony Stark, and that matters. So.

in the brokemachine verse, Thanos invades before this matter of the pardons could go down, and it was the rogues’ actions during the invasion that creates the opportunity for talk about pardons (services rendered etc etc). Bucky is deeply baffled by the fact that Tony would be working to get the pardons signed when he no longer has use for any of them. T’Challa, due to his obligations towards Bucky and his work with Tony during and in the aftermath of the invasion, orchestrates a situation where both of them can resolve their issues with one another, starting with Bucky asking to be allowed a pardon, and Tony working on that outside of trying to leverage Bucky’s pardon against Steve.

Bucky starts to contemplate the idea of actually resolving his Winter Soldier issues now that Tony’s opened a path to do so, and as Tony is the one that’s orchestrated this opportunity to start making amends, Bucky focuses on Tony. Tony is the injured party, Tony made it possible for Bucky to ‘come home,’ Tony is paying for the therapy and experimental procedures to fix Bucky, Tony is still wandering around with those dark eyes and that clenched jaw, designing up and maintaining a better arm than Bucky’s ever had before. It’s Tony’s ghost telling him he’s still not doing enough, and Tony rejecting his apologies (and why shouldn’t he, it’s not like Bucky can make amends for what he did, he can’t unkill Tony’s parents, undo Steve’s secrets), and Tony who holds Bucky’s fate in the palm of his hand and despite the bitterness and resentment, never curls that hand shut and crushes Bucky the way he should.

Bucky starts to work incredibly hard on resolving/owning the whole Winter Soldier mess (violently destabilizing himself in the process) because he’s trying to measure up to becoming something Tony Stark can approve of - or if not that, at least use. Bucky seeks absolution from Tony because Tony needs him to, and it’s the least Bucky can do for all the expense Tony has put out on maintaining Bucky.

So they have this weird kind of unspoken dialogue, and then in a broke machine, Tony consciously lets go of his anger and resentment, thus releasing Bucky from the burden of absolution, and allowing their relationship to evolve into something new and nurturing. They can start to heal together instead of working at odds to one another.

Well, as much healing as Bucky can do anyway. He has a safe space to figure out what the fuck is going on with his head and what he actually wants from the world at large, now, because Tony was generous before he liked Bucky, and he only all too clearly likes Bucky now, and the idea of someone actually liking Bucky as he is, now, instead of just working with him for someone else’s sake, or because of the man he once was, or because they pity him  - well. No one thinks of a cat as greedy for curling up in a warm spot of sunshine all to themselves, do they?

I know im the OP but god same 😭. I’m really glad I can help fellow mono trash like me getting the content we need. And I love when people tell me that i made them ship monos ^^

anonymous asked:

Can you tell us anything elae about Indie. Also you're awesome.

Not sure if this is exactly what you meant or if you were looking headcanons but:

A con woman desperate to be adored, Octavia O’Dell searched to be the center of attention by multiple men, marrying them for the thrill and then blackmailing them or manipulating them into heavy divorces. In one case she fell pregnant, a hidden treasure for the woman who could fulfill her narcissism by having both a miniature version to shape in her image and a life to depend on her and love her unconditionally.

Indie is taught at a young age not to get attached, losing track of how many marriages her mothers entered or fiancee’s she’s had, none ever enough - no matter how much Indie likes them. But it’s with David, her mother’s last husband that Indigo finds her heart and her small bubble of safety completely shattered. 

This time her mother’s marriage ends with a body count as Octavia is forced to address the crimes she’s committed. Indie herself implicated, and neither in the position to call the police, Octavia assures her daughter all will be taken care of as they hide the bodies and return to the safe haven that was once Octavia’s childhood home: Riverdale.

But the blood on their hands has stained and Indie finds herself slowly rebelling giant her mother’s controlling hold. Desperate to get out of the house that’s become half prison and half tomb, she gets a job at Pop’s Chock'lit Shoppe. There, despite her walls, she finds herself roped into the shenanigans of one Betty Cooper and Jughead Jones. Despite being in the middle of a civil war stirring, for the first time since partaking in her step-father’s murder she finds her safety in the company of others. How strange that the first time she really feels ‘at home’ is in the embrace of a very tall serpent with a very strange name.

Basically, Indie is my sweet baby building brick walls around her heart with one hand while reaching out for help with another. Naturally sweet and helpful like her grandmother, she somehow becomes Jughead’s sidekick on the southside, trying to get the snakes in order while low key falling blatantly in love with one.
