Summary: Series: Nat tricks you into leading a road trip with Bucky, Sam and Steve. Her plot is partly to get the boys to travel for fun for once but mostly to get you and Bucky together. You and Bucky, who seemingly despise each other. Part: The set-up.

Author’s Note: Ok, lots of things:
Aaaah I’m going to try something totally new and try a lot of 1st person Bucky POV in this series! This first part is just testing the waters a bit, feedback is much much appreciated.
Changing my mind, this isn’t going to be a drabble series. I just couldn’t cut the parts up that short. It will be a short series though, 7 or 8 parts I think, definitely less than 10.
I am currently road tripping myself and will make a Series Masterlist page once I get to my final destination tonight.
I don’t have photoshop on this computer (waaah!) so if anyone wants to make me a banner for this series… I wouldn’t hate it. Otherwise I’ll try to piece one together with Gimp or some other free crap
Okay enough chatter!
“Alright, my turn,” Natasha smirks, taking her stance and firing an impeccably placed dart into the board. Damn it. Why did I agree to play her? She must play Clint all the time. She’s going to beat me.
“Best city for a night out.” She must have known Steve would give a less than satisfactory answer because she raises a finger towards him and specifies, “I mean, pick up a girl, one night stand, kind of night out.” I can’t help but snort thinking about Steve trying to talk himself into leaving after a one night stand. He’s so damn chivalrous.
“I don’t know what you’re laughing about, Buck,” Steve fires at me, “you’ve been on fewer dates than me in the last decade!”
That shut me up. He’s right, I haven’t really gotten back into the swing of it yet, haven’t really tried. I scowl at Steve before picking up my set of darts and flicking one into the target. “New York,” I answer, willfully ignoring Steve’s taunting.
Marvel have officially revealed the rest of the cast for the upcoming ‘Inhumans’ TV show. From the top there is - Isabelle Cornish as Crystal, Eme Ikwuakor as Gorgon, Mike Moh as Triton, and Sonya Balmores as Auran!
Productive, Fun Marvel Things You Can Do Instead of Being Mad About White Iron Fist
I know a lot of you are pissed and/or disappointed about Marvel casting a white Iron Fist. Instead of being mad, I am going to recommend Marvel stuff that does truly represent Asian heroes, and they exist in the amazing and diverse world of comics.
The Totally Awesome Hulk
Amadeus Cho is Korean American and he is now the Hulk. After a mysterious accident putting Bruce Banner out of commision, Amadeus, one of the smartest people in the world, took it upon himself to be good old jolly green, except this time, he has his anger under control. This kid brings a sense of fun to being a huge, green monster and his series subverts all Asian stereotypes to give a legacy hero his own unique identity.
Cindy Moon was once bitten by a radioactive spider and after years in solitude, she became her own spider-hero, naming herself Silk. Her story is all about becoming accustomed to a world that has outgrown her and changed to an astonishing degree. She also looks for the family she was estranged from due to her powers. Any person with anxiety and just plain awkwardness can immediately relate to her.
Do you want to see a true Asian martial arts master? Well then Shang-Chi is the man for you. The guy is a bit of a drunk and a loser but his resolve and skill are top of the line, and he will need all of his wisdom and strength to overthrow the evil government run by his father. This is the true Marvel kung-fu epic Netflix should be adapting. When he is not fighting his father’s authority, he works as a detective, taking on the most unusual cases and fighting the biggest of enemies.
In the animated world, Amadeus Cho is still the lovable genius we know from the comics, except this time he is a Spider-Man. Using an Iron Spider suit he improved upon from a useless Tony Stark design, Cho becomes a master of flight and a genius engineer. He is a true hero and protector of New York City.
You can see him on Ultimate Spiderman vs. The Sinister Six and Ultimate Spiderman: Web Warriors on Disney XD
Blindspot in Daredevil
Samuel Chung is an illegal Chinese immigrant that hides a fierce intellect and need for justice. Using what little money he has from an dingy apartment he shares with his sister, he builds himself a suit and a code of honor to protect his home and family in Chinatown as the vigilante Blindspot, eventually becoming the apprentice of the legendary hero Daredevil.
Nico Minoru is a magic user. Once a member of the Runaways, she is now a full-fledged Avenger working in the all-female A-Force team. She fights alongside great heroines like Captain Marvel, She-Hulk, Medusa, and her good friend Singularity. She is hero not to be messed with and she deserves everyone’s respect.
I understand why you want to be mad, but instead of being mad about movie and TV studios, we NEED to find places where change and representation is happening and there is no better place for that than in comics. Nothing is hopeless, we just need to look beyond our comfort zones.
All of these series are amazing and they need to be read.
Please read about these heroes, buy their series, and support them.
If you already know about them, spread this post like wildfire and introduce these characters to people who need or want to see heroes that represent them.
Show Marvel that THIS is what we want both in their comics, TV shows, and movies.
A-FORCE VOL 2 #5-7 “Rage, Rage Against The Dying Of The Light”
When a massive dragon attacks a small coastal town, SHE-HULK, CAPTAIN MARVEL, MEDUSA, DAZZLER, NICO MINORU, and SINGULARITY spring into action. But this dragon is more than she seems and has her sights set on more than just one small town. In fact, she’s got her sights set on one of A-FORCE. Meanwhile, Dazzler’s got a big secret and the strangest ally ever is going to help them in this fight… or maybe try to arrest them.
