Steve as Cap, passing over the shield to Sam as Cap. Temporarily or not is up to you. rsf not signed in because my tablet hates me.

Sorry about your tablet woes! D: 

It had taken nearly a year of negotiation, including a lot of punched walls and more of T’Challa’s time than they’d really had the right to ask of him. But when the final draft of the newly renegotiated accords was set on the table, it felt like it was worth it. The entire Avengers were reassembled, even Natasha, who had disappeared in disgust and refused to be found by either Tony or Steve’s side for ages. 

She’d only reappeared, perhaps intentionally, after Tony came to Steve with his peace offering: tech that could wipe out Bucky’s programming permanently, and begin work on helping him find his way through the trauma of the last seventy years. It was a slow process, but it seemed to be working. 

Tony still didn’t look like he liked the idea of being in the same room with Bucky Barnes, but he was, and Steve could accept Tony’s tolerance of Bucky if it meant Tony wasn’t actively trying to kill him. 

It was one of those things that they were going to have to dance around for a while, Steve suspected. Which just made this decision easier. 

“Before anyone signs,” Steve said, drawing the document towards himself, “I need to ask for one more change.”

Wanda rolled her eyes. Clint collapsed backward in his chair, frustrated. “I’m not calling T’Challa again!” he announced. 

“Seriously?” Rhodey asked. “Seriously?

“Steve, you approved this – “ Tony started, but Steve held up a hand.

“It’s not a legal change, just a minor nomenclature issue,” he said, flipping to the roster page. Throughout the Accords – one of the only things Clint had insisted on, weirdly – the legal language only referred to people by their callsigns. Each Avenger was only mentioned by name once, in the roster. 

Steve took out a black ink pen, drew a neat line through his name and Sam’s name, and then wrote Sam’s name next to Captain America.

“I need to not be Cap for a while,” he said quietly, initialing the change. Every head in the room turned to Sam, who grinned. 

“He asked me last night,” Sam said. “Was I gonna say no?”

Black Captain America?” Rhodey asked. Sam nodded, and Rhodey held out his fist for a dap. 

Steve looked at Tony, who was looking thoughtful.

“You could have asked for this months ago,” Tony said. “But there would have been a call for confirmation hearings. Sam would have been background checked. Media field day. So you dumped it in now at the last minute, so that it would be up to me as a representative of the Accord negotiators.” 

“Is there a problem?” Steve asked. 

Tony smiled a little. “No, just admiring how good you’re both getting at politics.” He held out his hand for the pen, then leaned across the table and initialed the change. Then he set the pen down and snapped his fingers. One of the guards at the edge of the conference room came forward with a large object in a thin canvas bag. Tony took it, undid the drawstring, and removed the shield. He looked at Steve, then passed it straight across him to Sam, who took it carefully and slid his arm into the straps, letting it hang by his side. 

“Got any first words as Captain America?” Natasha asked. 

“Yeah,” Sam said. “Are we done here? I got justice to dispense.”

Chapter 14: Episode 4

           I picked up the phone, holding it gingerly in my hand, watching it ring, ring, ring… I moved my thumb over the answer button and swiped left to ignore the call, placing the phone back on the table.

           “Who was that?” Roen asked.

           I shook my head, smiling. “Oh, no one. So, you said you had something to give me?”

           “Yes, I do,” he said, pulling out a small box and setting it on the table. I stared at it oddly, and slid the look to him.

           “What is it?” I asked.

           He laughed. “Well, open it and see.”

           I did as he said, peeling back the ribbon to reveal a small black card, with fine silver engraving. “I… still don’t know what it is,” I said sheepishly.

           He smiled. “It’s a credit card.” 

           I shook my head a little, about fifty shades of confused. “But Roen, I don’t understand.” I admitted. “Why are you giving this to me?”

Parenting Hacks

Reblog with things you do! I’m super interested.. here are a few tricks that work around our house.

1) Even / Odd days: if you have 2 kids that fight over everything, this is a life saver. I give each kid an even or an odd. Eight was born on the 5th, and Puck on the 18th, so Eight is odd, Puck is even. If it’s an odd day, Eight gets to sit up front, pick the tv show, go to the bathroom first (we fight about everything), shower last (my kids hate showering first.. losers), etc. but with the good, they also have the bad. If it’s an odd day Eight has to set the table, scoop the litter box, vacuum, help with miscellaneous chores, etc. On even days, it flips to Puck. On the months that go from the 31st to the 1st, there is no exception. Be frugal about this rule from the beginning. Puck cared the first month, but I told her it is what it is, and she hasn’t said anything about it since. I’m still debating what happens if we get another kid. I may color block the calendar and give each kid a colored day.

2) going along with the ‘fight about everything’ theme, my kids always want the “bigger” piece while sharing a treat. I have one kid cut the treat, but the other kid gets to pick which piece. This is usually motivates the cutter to cut as evenly as possible.

3) if you’re anything like me, I like my kids eating organically and living organically as possible. Aldi’s is starting to go organic, and they’re prices are insanely cheap. H&M sells organic clothing and bedding.. also very inexpensive! I ordered the kids organic duvet covers for 19.99 🙌🏼

4) thieves + R.C. + frankincense Young Living essential oils are a MUST in my house. Idk about your locations, but the nasty, junky, sickness has been full force this winter. I diffuse these three all day to help boost immunity. None of us *knock on wood* have been sick at all. We also use other oils daily. Peace and calming is our favorite. Each of my kids have a diffuser in their room. Puck always is first to ask for the “sleep mist” when she can’t fall asleep. I used to be really good at turning them on every night, but recently have been forgetting. Each kid also has a salt rock lamp in their room that they use as a night light. Mine have dimmer switches that the kids set at the brightness they need. The lamps also have benefits of helping with anxiety, and clearing negative energy. Diffusers and salt rock lamps are at the top of my list for using on new placements. Don’t even get me started on oiling babies..

5) probiotic daily: not only are probiotics good for digestive health, but there is research done that proves it helps with respiratory health as well. PB-8 brand sells them in capsules that pull apart. I break them apart and sprinkle the powder into applesauce. The PB-8 brand works for adults and children. Adults take 2 daily, kids take 1. They also make vegan capsules!! Which is what we use.

6) finding motivating objects: money and iPad time are the main motivators in our house. My kids for some reason have this weird fetish of dumping bottles of things out. Conditioner, mouthwash, toothpaste.. I started making them replace these items with their own money and they magically stopped wasting. We use the big “pump” bottles of Jason’s bath products. This makes it easy for them to know that one pump is enough.

Puck has this disgusting habit of leaving her hair on the shower wall. I’ve asked her multiple times to stop, showed her other ways of getting hair off of her hands in the shower, but she was still doing it. I told her for every hair she leaves on the wall, she owes me a dollar. Every time they burp/fart at the table, they owe a dollar. I keep the money and give them the chance to earn it back with good behavior.

We use night time iPad time to help with whining and pouting. Eight is a whiner and Puck is a pouter. If they start up, I remind them they won’t get iPad time, and 95% of the time they immediately change their tones.

Percival: “Y/N, are you in there?”

Y/N: “yeah, in the kitchen”

Percival: “hello sweetheart, how was your day?”

Y/N: “quite alright, would you be a dear and set the table?”

Percival: “anything for you love”

You thought back about those memories almost every day, hoping it could be like that once again. It had been 2 months since Percival was captured by Grindelwald and you had searched for him every day but to no avail. But you knew, the day you would see him, nothing was going to stop you from killing him.

  • “Meze, which is a selection of small dishes served to accompany alcoholic drinks as a course or as appetizers before a main dish.  A big part of the dining experience in Eastern Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, and Arab countries. The word “meze” means “taste” and/or “snack.” The concept is very similar to the tapas of Spain,”
