So I did the thing, and it’s stupid and terrible, but here, have it:
Bucky’s an EMT. Normal guy, just living his life, trying to help where he can. And then one day, all of a sudden, the aliens are invading NYC, and Bucky’s out there helping, right in the middle of the danger zone because of course he is.
There’s a fight going on, and a bunch of freaks in weird suits seem to be fighting the aliens, but Bucky doesn’t have much time to focus on anything other than all the people in dire need of medical attention. He does what he can to help, grabs the first metal bar he can find and fights only the aliens getting in his way, and works himself to exhaustion. Then there’s a blast, and it sends a man flying right into the wall next to him.
“Hey, you okay?” Bucky asks, rushing to help him, and though Bucky could’ve sworn the blow was hard enough to crush anyone’s ribs, he’s surprised to see the man–who must’ve been on his way to a costume party–stand up practically unscathed.
He’s got broad shoulders and a strong jaw and eyes of the prettiest shade of blue Bucky’s ever seen, and even with his face covered in soot and grime and blood, Bucky’s heart skips a beat.
For a few seconds the man seems a bit disoriented, then he finally registers Bucky’s presence. “What are you doing here?? Get out of the streets!”
“I was–” Bucky starts, and is cut off by an explosion right above their heads and a bunch of debris raining down on them, and a hand shoving him aside.
When he comes to, which is a surprise in itself, the dust has started to clear, and the man who’s clearly saved his life is carrying him as if he weighed nothing, concern in those beautiful eyes and a big, warm hand pressed tenderly against Bucky’s neck, checking for a pulse.
He locks eyes with Bucky and sighs in relief, the hint of a smile on his plush lips, but the hand remains where it is. “Hi,” he says. “You all right?”
“Y-yeah… Thank you,” Bucky replies, but he doesn’t move to free himself of the man’s arms. His stomach is doing something weird, and the man surely has other people to rescue, but for a few seconds they both just stay there, shell-shocked and staring at each other like the world around them has stopped.
Then something blows up nearby, and the spell is broken.
Carefully, the man helps him to his feet, makes sure Bucky’s in one piece, and then says, “Find shelter, okay? Stay inside.”
Bucky’s not planning to, but he can’t find it in him to tell that to this incredible man, so he slowly licks his lips and nods. Before turning around to leave, the man offers him a small, shy smile.

During the next few weeks after the Chitauri attack on NYC, every single piece of footage of the Avengers fighting against the aliens and helping civilians goes viral. Phone videos, security cameras, blurry pics.
The most popular, by far, is a snapshot of Captain America carrying a guy, who can be seen fighting aliens and helping people in other videos, bridal style, thumb caressing his jaw, and both looking like lovestruck teenagers.
Bucky can’t go to the grocery store or even do his job without being stalked by the paparazzi or Cap’s groupies or just random people wanting to know what his Avenger name is, and for how long he’s been dating Captain America.
- - - - -
“You’ve ruined my life!!” Bucky tells him, because of course, of course Captain America would pick Bucky’s park for his morning run. Of course Bucky’d slip on wet leaves on the pavement precisely this morning, and of fucking course Captain America would just happen to be around to catch him at just the right time. Bucky’s seeing red.
“I’m sorry,” Captain America says, and it’s extremely unfair just how genuine and how much like a kicked puppy he looks.
Christ, Bucky wants to punch him.

Steve’s been living in PR hell.
He’s spent the past weeks “saving” girls and boys alike from getting hit by a bicycle, or fainting, or a fuckton of equally stupid shit.
The second anyone spots Captain America, there’ll suddenly be some kind of dangerous situation going down, and someone hoping Cap will carry them bridal style to safety and maybe fall head over heels in love with them in the process.
Steve is tired and done and ready to get back in the ice for another few decades, and shares Pepper’s worries that someone might actually put themself in real danger soon.
“We should handle this before it gets worse,” Nat says. And Steve agrees, of course, but he just doesn’t know how.
“Just marry the guy,” Clint suggests.
Steve almost chokes to death on his own spit.
Clint shrugs. “Why not? Half the world already thinks you’re dating…”
“Clint, he hates me…”
“Only cause people keep pestering him about this. If you two get married it’ll be a circus, but then it’ll blow over. He can’t even do his job right now, right? So you pay the guy for the trouble, yadda yadda, then when this is over you two get a quick divorce, and that’s it. Problem solved.”
For two minutes, no one else opens their mouth. Then:
“He’s got a point…”
“Tony, no,” Steve whines.
“You saw the footage, how he was helping those civilians… If you have to marry someone, he’s not a bad candidate,” Nat says, and then smirks. “Plus, he’s cute.”
Steve already knows he’s lost this battle, but that doesn’t help him feel any better about this. Yes, he’s cute. Yes, he’s a brave and kind and smart guy. Yes, Steve could very easily pretend to be married to him for a while and yes it’d help them both. None of that’s the problem.
The problem is that he kind of really likes the guy.
So would there have been a Bendy with the maturity of a 6 year old? Lol
Nah it’s more like
He came into the world more closely to what Joey made his personality to be. As the years went by he kinda just got more mature cuz yknow
He’s not being written for anymore so he develops on his own
He’s still the mischievous demon in the cartoons, just with like 60+ years of real life experience
Edit: The same would go with boris and Alice. Before Boris would come to life, bendy still worked on making the actual cartoons. So when Joey does bring Boris about, he remembers adventures that this Bendy wasnt actually apart of. He starts out as a bit of a naive goof but as the years would go by he may get surprisingly wiser and more self aware. For Alice, if she WAS written to be Bendy’s love interest, she would have expected him to feel the same way back, cuz thats what it was like in the show. But IRL Bendy doesn’t, and in the beginning is kinda jealous and mean to her because of the attention she was getting and because it felt like he was expected to just fall in love with her right on spot. and this would probably affect that relationship to a big extent.
TL;DR they start off basically like they are in the cartoons with the memories of what their cartoon selves experience, but when in real life they’d have to write their own scripts, themselves
@rabbitpietale I’m a bit late sorry! I got carried away and made a whole bunch of doodles lol! I’m not sure if it’s exactly what you imagined, but here are some ideas I had!
Some design, with the swap colours. Sans’ outfit changes a little bit, but I had no idea how to change Mettaton so…it’s just Mtt in blue lol!
Their roles are swapped: Mettaton is a sentry and a illegal ‘dog seller. Sans is a comic TV star!
Instead of fighting Sans at the end of the genocide path, you’re against Mettaton. I imagine he changes into MTT Neo for the 2nd part of the fight (and before changing he says “It’s not even my final form!” haha). And here is a sketch of his death when you deliver the final blow. And as Mtt’s systems are dying he says this dialogue which is a ref to 2001: space odyssey! I thought it’d fit very well and he’d be very sad :’ (
A full pic, because i can! And also the last one lol. That’s the ideas i had, it was fun haha! Maybe I’ll draw them again another time because I like the idea! (I just like roles swaps tbh lol )
Seiyuu fandom! Let me remind you guys how old Suwabe is O.O So yup, let’s be happy that he’s married o(≧∇≦o)
Of course he wasn’t 45 when this event happened lol, but you get the idea ^^ With a request from a bitter anon (seriously =.= be open-minded dude), it’s still not confirmed but if it’s true I’ll be happy for him
Hey do you think the writers of the show have a tumblr? I mean like to see what ppl are posting and stuff. I aways wonder if they read our meta and be like "if you put it that way it does sound pretty gay dammit" or "lol bitch no that shot was just completely unnecessary good try tho"
Hahahaha I have no idea, it would be hilarious wouldn’t it?
I mean Dabb is all “it’s a meta finale” - he knows we look into this stuff and the reason we look into it is because it’s out there on purpose, as @floralmotif always says (who has a cinema background) this isn’t real life, everything that we see are choices that are purposefully made by someone for a reason…
So it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re at least aware of the gist of the stuff that we talk about, I mean we talk about it because it’s there and they choose to put it there so they must like knowing that we care about it :)
The dark eyed man’s dancing had slowed to a graceful swaying, and, as close as he was, Duo could see the fine sheen of sweat on his forehead and upper lip. He wondered what those delicate beads tasted like.
He had the repeat the question when it was met with a confused scowl the first time, had to add in a gesture that he hoped looked like an invitation.
The dark eyed man considered him with a long look, taking in Duo’s entire appearance, head to toe, and Duo, who knew he looked good - had, after all, taken the time to look damn good tonight on the off-chance that he ran into his ex so he could make it really, really clear that the asshole was missing out and that Duo was fine, so so fine the last six months were already totally forgotten - found himself squirming under the gaze.
But then the man shrugged and held out one of his arms, the flesh bare and golden and smooth and Duo wrapped his hand in the proffered one and felt his pulse thrum in ecstasy.
there had been the risk of The Ex and Duo making a fool of himself and Hilde had said she was going it so he Then again, it could be the ecstasy. Duo didn’t do drugs often, well, not anything stronger than weed, but, well, had shrugged and, well…
The guy felt amazing, his body radiating heat and strength and when one of his hands moved from Duo’s lower back to his ass and pulled him closer Duo was pretty sure he wasn’t going to get told to fuck off. At least, not yet.
What was Dylan's favorite store to shop at in the mall? And did they have Hot Topic in the 90s?
Probably the music store (which might’ve been a Tower Records). He also probably liked to peruse the movie store, and yes, Hot Topic (which Eric had a love/hate relationship with because it was mainstream’s idea of ‘edgy’) and at a certain point All Wound Up for reasons given in the link.. and oh, yeah, the food court. Duh. lol
Hello! I've heard people saying that D/any and Jon parallel Henry VII and Elizabeth of York. Jon is the White Wolf, similar to the White Rose of York, and D/any is a Targaryen whose family emblem is a red dragon, just like Henry Tudor. Like their historical counterparts, their union would finally unite the Starks/Targs and the 7K (at least before they die in the war for the dawn lol). Mind you, I'm just repeating popular spec and I'm still unconvinced, but what do you think?
Here’s a war of the roses meta that explains Jon/Henry, Dany/Henry and Sansa/EOY parallels better than I could. My British history knowledge is lacking, as a Canadian geography & urban planning student. I also find TWP unwatchable. But the idea of Jon and Dany marrying to “unite” the kingdoms does not fit the story as told. D/J marrying would actually make Jon’s hold on the North/Vale/Riverlands questionable at best. Here’s my thoughts on the role of Northern Politics and how it would effect a D/J marriage alliance.
However, Jon (or Aegon) as Henry Tudor and Sansa as Elizabeth or York seems to make more sense from parallels. After all… Jon is a Targaryen. He is not actually a Stark. Once R+L=J is inevitably revealed J/D would be nothing more than a Targaryen/Targaryen alliance that would do nothing to secure the North or Jon’s hold. Jon is already a Targaryen so if what we need is a Stark/Targaryen union, what we really need is for Jon to marry Sansa or Arya. If this is even what we need at all, of course.
I would say that by this point the 7K is donezo. Afterall, it currently doesn’t exist. At the very least, Jon has the 2K. Dorne has left too. The Riverlands will probably join the King in the North. The Iron Islands are rebelling too. Dany ostensibly has the Reach (though not really - just Olenna Tyrell, the Reach is up for grabs). Cersei has… the West? And KL. I have no idea what the Stormlands are up to off the top of my head.
And I don’t think they’ll be getting back together. Constructing an empire of such different nations, with different cultures and religions, who actually want home rule, is a recipe for future problems. I would say the endgame is more about the new system than it is about how to get everything back to the way it was in s1/AGOT.
I think the current Big Political Conflict comes down to Absolute Rule by a potentially despotic monarch, and one who definitely is detached from local contingencies and culture, and Home Rule of the individual nations within the 7K.
People bring up the possibility of yandere!Yusaku, huh? But what if there really was a yandere, but someone who is one towards Yusaku himself? I mean what if there is already a yandere around, but they are currently act "dere"? Maybe they already have some sort of relationship with Yusaku? What if... You know, I don't really trust Shoichi. What if he turns into yandere? When Yusaku will form any sort of relationships beside him? Or maybe Ignis might become one? We saw that he can be a monster.
Lol, I’ve gotten several questions about yandere!Yusaku. There certainly seems to be an interest in it, especially since it would be so different from Yuya’s berzerk mode.
14: If you could have only three books (novels or otherwise), what would they be?
The History of Love by Nicole Krauss, The Blue Octavo Notebooks by Franz Kafka (obviously), and 100 Years of Solitude by Gabriel García Márquez
22: What’s your writing process? (Do you brainstorm, outline, etc.)
Honestly, I wish I knew. When I try to brainstorm my mind is flooded of all ideas and I become a shell of a human being lol
Usually a line will come to me and I sort of build the poem around it, so to speak. I never write the first draft in my journal because I’ll inevitably cross things out and rewrite lines and I really hate for my journal to be sloppy so usually I write using a particular pen on resumé paper.
24: What has inspired you lately?
I keep seeing dead birds everywhere, so that’s something. Birds in general have been inspiring me a lot as of late. There’s this line that’s been in my drafts since March and it’s just
“every winged blackblue thing, shadow-boxed”
I have no idea where I’m going with it, or if I’m even going anywhere with it at all.
Why people think Yuuri is not well off in money? Yes, he is not rich as Viktor but he is not poor either. I am damn sure he sends most of his money to his parents to keep up the payments of their home/inn. It is possible that is the reason it is why their place stayed open so long. What are your thoughts on this?
Yuuri and his family are certainly middle class. You’re right, they’re not poor. I think it comes from the idea that, well, Yuuri grew up in a family business, which teaches you to be thrifty. Also, there was an implication of an economic downturn and some point that quieted the town (what is my wording lol). I would give picture examples, but crunchyroll isn’t working for me where I am.
There’s first of all the fact that every other onsen closed, as you mentioned. There must’ve been a dip in demand to do this. Secondly is that Minako says to Yuuri when he returns, something along the lines of “you have to liven this town up again.” I’m probably 100% wrong in the wording, but that’s the gist of it. So I think Hasetsu is no longer as big a tourist place as it was, so that source of income to the community dipped too.
Yuuri probably went to America on a scholarship, and like you said, sent money back to his family when he could. I’m sure Yuuri has sponsors, so he probably has more money than the onsen at a given time.
Victor, on the other hand, is fucking loaded. So I guess the comparison of them also drives the economic wedge in, too.
every harry potter post on here thats not a super tenuous and ill-advised political metaphor is some exhausting 3-part affair where the first part is the op being like “can you summon a patronus specifically to suck your dick lol” and then some rando comes along and adds onto it like “no this is a very beautiful idea. imagine students in dumbledores army learning to summon customized fleshlight patronuses… imagine summoning a human shaped patronus you could date….. what if hogwarts professors knew fun pop culture references and said them to each other” and then the third part is someone posting an 80k word essay-fanfiction about their heroic slytherin OC being the first wizard ever to pioneer the Dickius Suckicus enchantment and starting the first sex positive wizard kink shoppe that ends up defeating voldemort or whatever the fuck
