never-showing-up

Headcanons about Nat's relationship with each Avenger? Or maybe with the people who she doesn't interact with on screen much. Peggy, Wanda, Sam, Rhodey, esp.

not an au but here we go:

- Margaret Carter had abandoned retirement to recruit the Black Widow; Natalia would never forget the naivete of trusting a Black Widow so completely-

“Is there any name you would prefer on your passport?”

Natalia had kept silent till then - her mind reeled with the logistics of it, to grant asylum to a Soviet killer-

Nat-Natasha-”

The elderly lady had nodded. The wrinkles around her mouth fought her poise - she made Natalia feel younger than her nineteen years.

Two days later she had helped Natalia evacuate her former recon apartment. It had involved the presentation of a new passport. Natalia Romanova’s ticket out of hell. 

13 years later Sharon asked her to be at Margaret Carter’s funeral. Natalia - no, Natasha - had nodded.

She never showed up. She spent an hour burning a passport, watching the name Carter, Natasha Margaret licked to nothing by the lighter flame.

This is a longshot, but I have been hoping Taylor will be involved in James Taylor's Kennedy Center Honors presentation. It's happening tomorrow (& is filmed to air on CBS Dec 27th). She's never showed up before to perform for one of the recipients (but its common for big names like Beyonce, etc. to do so). Anyways, JT is an honoree this year & given their friendship I've really wanted her to be part of his presentation. Like I said, probably a longshot, but hoping for news of her in DC!

that would be super cool!! 

Cable mans never showed up right cause they said I never made a deposit when 250 came out my account so who at Verizon need to see me with the hands

I'd like to headcanon Ash didn't use the lure again for that reason too, but I think the real world reason is that the writers just forgot about it or don't care to use it anymore since its an obvious reference to an old character. They would have to explain to current companions who that person is like Ash/Brock did with Dawn, and I guess the writers don't feel the need to do that if Misty is never going to show up anyway.

Well, yeah. The point of a headcanon isn’t to be interchangeable with Word of God from the authors on the serie’s “behind the scenes”. That’s not even the point of canon.

When Professor Oak gave Pikachu to Ash he didn’t say “here I’m giving you this one that isn’t one of the possible choices in the games so that it won’t create favoritisms among the children playing them in the real world”. When the companions leave at the end of a series you don’t get Norihiko Sudo or Tetsuo Yajima’s head popping up on screen to say “hi, this is the serie’s director speaking. These characters will now leave because new games are coming out and we need the spots in the main cast for new protagonists in order to advertise them. Ok bye”. We know those are the real world reasons those things happen, but the actual canon gives you a plausible in-universe explanation.

A headcanon does the same thing. It takes something that’s left with no explanation in the show and comes up with a plausible (as in “doesn’t contradict other pieces of canon”, not “isn’t likely to be the real world reason”), in-universe one in your head.

Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

—  a week with you on my mind, c.j.n.
Looking back, I can’t remember the truth. I blew everything out of proportion so I could feel the hurt and betrayal and write about it in vivid detail. It was my own method of torture. My own undoing; and I enjoyed every second of it.
