rowana-renee  asked:

How many cookies would it take to bribe you into telling me a story, Bucky? They're homemade, and any story will do.

all of them. i will tell you the story while i wait for all of the cookies.

once upon a time, a little shit decided to go fight nazis. 

usually when i start a story that way, its a steve story. but this time its a me story.

i too fought nazis, my friend, and it was not fun at all.  it turns out nazis dont like being fought, and will fight back. this caused us a great deal of stress and trenchfoot. 

as you may or may not know, my nazi fighting buddies were called the howling commandoes. we had a reputation as being ‘howling mad’ which most people assumed is where our name came from. 

it is not.

so shortly after we’d signed up as steves unit, we got sent out on a sort of breaking-in mission. it was supposed to be a pretty routine just-behind-enemy-lines gig, mostly to see how we’d do as a team. at that point, we were the first ‘integrated’ squad under american command, so they wanted to be sure we were up to snuff. basically they sent us a few miles into a relatively lightly-fortified occupied area to blow up a few supply trucks. it went pretty smoothly. we were still getting to know each other, a bit. we’d met in the hydra camp in austria and bonded pretty well there but it wasnt like we were sitting around doing icebreaker questions. so on that first mission we spent a lot of time chatting, getting a better feel for each other as people. like summer camp, but with more potential for death, and shooting of nazis, explosions, and overgrown science experiments in spangly pants. 

so maybe not like summer camp at all.  i wouldnt know, i never went to summer camp. 

anyways, we blew up the supply trucks and we were headed back towards base when we came across a nice little stream. most of us were pretty dirty, so we agreed to take a few minutes, strip down and wash up. the area we were in was supposed to be secure; it was a slightly disputed border area, but it had been safely in allied hands for months. probably it wasn’t the smartest call, but sometimes you get dirt places you never wanted dirt and are willing to literally risk death to get rid of that dirt. 

we left our gear in a little stand of trees on the far side of the stream and washed up. 

at this point, dumdum dougan was establishing his reputation as the Toughest Guy Ever, which was a rough gig when one of your squadmates is captain america, who literally walks off bullet wounds like a moron. nevertheless, dumdum had the mustache and was determined to be the manliest man around, so when the rest of us got in, clean, and back out as fast as we could manage, because the water was freezing, dumdum decided to prove how macho he was by pretending he wasnt cold at all, and the rest of us were wimps. 

naturally, the rest of us thought he was ridiculous. we were all pretty much dressed and good to go, and dumdum was still sitting in an ice-cold stream in april, bragging about how tough he was. i, being a little shit, covertly suggested we play a little prank. 

so the rest of us finished gearing up, then grabbed his things and started running. his pack, his gun, his boots…all his clothes except his hat, which was hanging off the handle of a knife he’d stuck in the tree. we knew he’d stop to get the hat, and that gave us a head start.

as soon as we started running, dumdum came out of the stream after us, and as expected, stopped to get his hat and knife. we had a decent head start, and he was yelling at the top of his lungs after us. we were all laughing our heads off, because he looked like a complete idiot, running after us brandishing a knife, in nothing but a bowler hat. 

unbeknownst to us, a nazi squad had been sneaking through the woods ahead of us, and were setting up an ambush on one of our transport trucks. they were all tucked away in the underbrush, waiting for the transport to get close enough, and had just popped out of the shrubbery and fired their first couple shots.

which was approximately when a ragtag-looking, still-wet group of cackling maniacs led by the bastard child of paul bunyan and lady liberty burst out of the treeline, being chased by an angry naked man in a bowler hat with a knife. 

there was a very long moment when everyone stopped shooting at everyone else and stared at us. 

and then everyone went back to shooting at everyone else.  but the ambush was angled to ensnare the transport coming up the road. we came from behind them, and they had pretty much no cover from our angle. as soon as we realized we’d run into a combat zone, we dropped the gear and started shooting. steve used the dinner platter of justice and cleared out about four nazis at once, and dumdum got the worlds unluckiest nazi with his knife. poor guy. there’s not a whole lot worse than your last sight on earth being a naked dumdum dougan.

 we’d unintentionally provided a perfect distraction, and the transport had time to regroup and return fire. between us, the ambush was taken care of in a few minutes. 

but the thing was, we’d broken protocol by stopping to wash up, and as a shiny new unit still on probation, the last thing we wanted was to tell anyone what had actually happened. 

so instead we told them that we’d known about the ambush and had decided to provide a distraction, and were just crazy enough that we thought the best way to do that was run howling straight into it. dumdum’s nudity was explained as a personal preference: the man just likes fighting nazis naked, sir, and you cant say it wasnt effective??

naturally, the story went everywhere and got bigger each time it was told. probably we should have gotten in tons of trouble but the story was such a morale booster that they let it slide. 

and thats why we were called the howling commandoes. 

Harry Styles: The Rockstar Nobody Expected (And How That Will Help Him)
— 

Just over a week ago, one-time One Direction singer Harry Styles finally ventured out on his own musically with his debut single as a solo act, “Sign Of The Times,” and the track wasted no time in immediately certifying the British musician as a smashing success. The song kicked off its charting life in the singer’s home country at No. 1, knocking Ed Sheeran’s “Shape Of You” out of the top spot after an incredible 13-week run. Here in the States, the track also performed well upon arrival, starting at No. 4, and there is the possibility it could continue to rise.

While Styles had plenty going for him before anybody even heard what he had to offer—a famous name, a dedicated fan base, a powerful record label with massive resources and a level of anticipation which is rarely seen in the music industry—there is one thing about “Sign” that is also helping him succeed: the song’s genre.

It would have been incredibly easy for Styles to pair up with serious pop hitmakers like Max Martin and his crew and secure a No. 1 smash worldwide, but instead, he opted to go another route and take a risk. “Sign” sounds like it belongs more appropriately in the 1970’s than in 2017, and while that might not work for many acts, it’s helping Styles rise to the top of charts everywhere. Who else has the power to try to push glam psych-rock in an electro-pop world but somebody who has already proven themselves to be one of the most successful musicians in history by the age of 23?

“Sign Of The Times’ was greeted first with surprise, and then with almost unanimous acclaim. Critics everywhere loved not only the chance Styles took in going down this rock-y road, but many applauded the song itself, and the majority of media outlets suggested readers give the cut a try. Skeptics and those expecting more boy band-esque fodder were forced to immediately reconsider the man not just as a bestseller, but now as a true artist. One Direction may have taken over the world with their music, but they were never true critical favorites. Where he stands in the eyes of critics and music journalists everywhere may change now that Styles has shown what he can do when left to create with the right talents and some freedom. “Sign” elevates him to a place few singers reach after leaving the group that made them stars.

Perhaps most importantly, everything about his first single out of the gate as a standalone act separates him noticeably from his former bandmates, all of whom are also attempting to make it as solo artists. Zayn, the first One Direction member to leave the band, has already achieved global success, and he is now attempting to do so again with a second album, which is expected later this summer. Other 1D singers like Niall Horan and Louis Tomlinson have only dropped one proper single, but they are also off to a good start. Each man has chosen a different lane to operate in, and he and his team were smart enough to know that if they were going to succeed, they needed to differentiate the British boybander from the crowd…and it’s working.

In fact, nobody in the top 40 world is rocking out like Styles seems prepared to do with his upcoming self-titled album, and that will work in his favor. It’s incredibly difficult to out-pop Katy Perry or Lady Gaga, or to beat Calvin Harris or The Chainsmokers when it comes to EDM, but without a serious, famous challenger in the rock arena, Styles can claim charting records and shoot up the charts and grab plenty of attention and new fans doing so.

These are still early days for Harry’s fledgling solo career, but with a serious smash hit already to his credit, a slew of public appearances currently taking place and an album scheduled for less than a month from now, an era of rock and roll from an unlikely candidate may already be upon us.

anonymous asked:

How did u and summer become friends???

summer posted fanart of a pokemon au, and i reblogged it and said that lance would name his vaporeon ‘vape god.’ summer thought that was hilarious so we started talking and came up with more pokemon names, but our friendship was mostly just the occasional message.

and then one day i found this picture of a horrifically taxidermied deer ass/hoohah and i thought ‘oh man, summer would love this.’ 

and the rest, as they say, is history

nicky hemmick masterlist (fave moments/most heart wrenching for me bolded)
  • Nicholas Hemmick was the only one who looked genuinely happy to see Neil, and he stepped up to the curb at Neil’s approach.
  • “If you take  German as your elective here, just let me know and  I’ll tutor you. I’m good with my tongue.”
  • “That’s not okay.” Neil said, pointing at the door. “That’s nothing.” Nicky said. Neil caught his arm as Nicky passed and hauled him to a stop. “Don’t let him get away with things like that.” Nicky considered him for a moment, his smile fading into something small and tired. 
  • He smiled when he saw Neil. “Hey stranger,”  Nicky said. “What did you think of Matt?” “He seems fine,” Neil said, not slowing on his way by. “He is fine,” Nicky called after him with a laugh. 
  • “I’m not willing to give up on them yet. I want to fix this.”
  • Surprisingly, it was Nicky who found the strength to cross the room toward her. He crouched in front of her, moving slow like he thought she’d run off if he startled her, and gazed up into her face. “Hey,” Nicky said, soft and nice like the two of them hadn’t spent all summer cutting each other down on the court. “Is there anything we can do?”
  • Neil expected him to fall, but Nicky slung an arm around Andrew’s shoulders and yanked Andrew close to him. It let him take some of Andrew’s weight without it being too obvious what he was doing. Andrew looked ready to say something about the unasked-for help, but Nicky didn’t give him a chance to argue. He pumped his fist and whooped. “That was awesome! We are going to own this season!”
  • “Kid, you’re killing me,” Nicky said. “Why do you always get that deer-in-headlights look when someone does something nice for you?”
  • “I can’t.” It was too ragged and too honest, but Neil couldn’t help it. If he didn’t get rid of that phone he was going to be sick. “Nicky, I-” “Okay, okay,” Nicky said, taking Neil’s hand in both of his. “We’ll figure it out.”
  • “You’re family, so i can tell you”
  • “I thought I could show Aaron and Andrew how to be brothers again. And I’m not giving up.”
  • “I thought God abandoned me; sometimes I thought I failed Him. Halfway through my junior year I started thinking about suicide.”
  • “Erik Klose,” Nicky said, sounding it out like he was saying it for the first time. “He taught me to believe in myself. He showed me how to balance my faith and my sexuality, and he made me okay again. I know it sounds dramatic, but he saved my life.”
  • It could have been the most awkward dinner in the world if not for Nicky. Nicky hated how isolated the twins were and was desperate to make friends with the rest of the team. It was as if he’d developed a sudden allergy to silence. Any time the conversation started to slow he threw out another topic to salvage it.
  • Nicky cradled Andrew’s face in his hands. 
  • Nicky trudged across the room and sank into one of the empty chairs. He dropped his phone on the table and buried his face in his hands. Abby slid into the seat beside him and wound an arm around his shoulders.  Nicky leaned against her but said nothing else. 
  • Nicky caught hold of Matt’s wrist instead. “Thank you,” Nicky said, quiet but fervent. “I don’t know why you did it, but–thanks.”
  • Nicky reached out and scrubbed a gloved hand through Neil’s hair. “You are going to be the absolute death of me,” Nicky said. “Yeah, kid. We’re friends. You’re stuck with us, like it or not.”
  • “It’s not really about the food. It’s about family. Not necessarily the one we were born with, but the one we chose. This one,” Nicky emphasized, gesturing between them. “The people we trust to be part of our lives. The people we care about.”
  • Nicky, on the other hand, looked absolutely crushed as he took in Neil’s wrecked appearance. He reached out as soon as Neil was close enough and wrapped his hand around the back of Neil’s head. Nicky was tense as stone but the long breath he let out was shaky. “Oh, Neil,” he said in a choked voice. 
  • He could hear pain in his voice, thick enough to slur his words. Nicky looked stricken with guilt. “I can’t yet.” “I’m sorry,” Nicky said. “I didn’t–I wasn’t thinking. Here, here. Let me. I’ve got it.”
  • Nicky was too afraid to go after Andrew, so he slowly dropped to his knees and slid a hand across the asphalt. He curled his fingers around Allison’s and gave her hand a tight squeeze. 
  • Nicky blew them a kiss when he was handed his red card. 
  • “We’re such hot shit sometimes!”
  • Nicky was a disconsolate mess near the window
  • “A dashboard lighter.” He winced at the awful sound Nicky made. 
  • “You can’t have him,” Nicky said. “He belongs with us.”
  • “Neil or Nathaniel or whoever,” Nicky said. “He’s ours, and we’re not letting him go. You want us to vote on it or something? Be you it’ll be unanimous.”
  • “As a family.” Nicky attempted a smile. It was weak but it was encouraging.

“there’s only supposed to be one. maybe that’s why you and i can never get along. we’re not supposed to exist together.”

our love was like the seasons of the year. One day he was summer. Always loving, telling me I  was beautiful and that our love was meant to be. Other days he was winter. Cold and harsh pushing me away and making me feel as if I was stupid and not enough. And somedays he was spring. Always blossoming but sometimes shutting down. He was like a florida summer. Some days he was sunny and bright. Others he was just plain old cold and harsh rain. I understand now. Why they name storms after people. He was my storm.

Hoseok Scenario: Spring Day

Request: Listening and reading the lyrics to bts spring day is so sad and touching, can I request an j hope angst scenario based off of the lyrics?? Thanks so much!!

Genre: Angst / Fluff.


Hoseok felt cold, even if it was the middle of April, but the news of you moving away to other country made summer feel like a harsh winter, when you told him about it he had thought you were kidding, normally you would always be teasing him, so he had thought those news were just a joke, a terrible one, and he had laughed, but when you didn’t laugh along with him he knew there was nothing to joke about.

Hoseok hadn’t known at that moment if he could allow himself to be upset or not, you were going because there was an opportunity of a bright future for you, he wanted to support you, and he did, but at the same time he felt lost, not knowing how to feel about his best friend going away from him, about how to react to those news. They were good news, but at the same time terrible ones. He had always thought you were just about to start something, but it never crossed his mind that in reality something was about to end.

-I’m leaving in mid May, will you come to the airport?- you asked when you two were sitting on the porch just outside your house, he lived close by so he would usually be around your house a lot, your parents were used to him, actually they loved him, Hoseok was the kind of guy that lighted the room with just his presence, and when he smiled, god when he smiled you couldn’t stop looking at him, like your eyes were drawn to that smile and you felt better, anew, just because you were looking at how radiant Hoseok was. But your friend wasn’t smiling so much lately and it hurt you because you knew you were to be blamed.

-Of course Y/N- he answered without a doubt. -I have to see you, should I make a banner?-

You slapped his shoulder playfully making both of laugh. -Don’t you dare-

-I will then, it’d say something like “About time”-

-Yah!- you scolded him.

-Alright, it’d say something like “There goes the girl of my dreams”- he joked half heartedly, he didn’t dare yet to say it seriously, but you fell silent and for a moment Hoseok feared that you had seen past his joke and discovered the real meaning of his words, that was just that, you were so much to him, and now he had to see you gone.

-Don’t say those things- you whispered staring at him. You went closer to him until you could hug him, placing your head over his chest as you felt his arms wrapping around you. -I’ll miss you- you whispered even lower this time.

Hoseok held you tighter, wondering if he was just torturing himself by coming to your house every single day just to be a little longer with you. -I’ll miss you too-
