It’s gotten to the point in the Marvel/MCU fandom where I don’t even know what is entirely fanon and what has a basis in the movies/comics

has Thor ever eaten a pop tart?? did Steve really have his last rites done twice before he got the serum?? is Coulson really Clint and Natasha’s handler?? Does SHIELD even have a position called “handler”?? Did Bucky and Steve share an apartment before the war?? Did Bucky work “at the docks” while they shared an apartment?? Has Nick Fury ever said “motherfucker”?? did Steve have a job with the WPA?? does Coulson like SuperNanny?? Were ‘Bucky Bears’ ever a thing?? 

I don’t even know anymore



Superhusbands4ever’s January 2017 Fic Rec

Hey guys! So I got the idea to do a monthly fic rec where I list any Tony ship fics that I read and liked that month (because I read a ridiculous amount of fanfiction, it’s crazy), and a lot of people were interested! So I’m going to post each month’s list on the last day of every month, but I’m posting two this month since I missed January (there’ll be more in next month’s, I promise). (If you’re not a Tony fan this list probably won’t interest you lmao)

January | February

Fics marked with ** are personal favorites that I highly recommend you read. Like if you don’t read the others, at least read those.

Stony (Steve/Tony)

“But as a guy who’s never been good at anything but killing- lemme tell you this. Wars can come to us, and we can fight to end them.”

“But nothing’s ever worth starting one. Nothing at all.”

As the dust of Civil War starts to settle- Steve begins to see a couple of things.

  • Your Name on Every Wall by Sineala - 616 Fix it of so many things, general knowledge of Civil War and Original Sin recommended - 18K

The Time Gem throws Steve into the past rather than the future, and in doing so, it gives him the opportunity to undo his past mistakes. But when it turns out that all of his mistakes involve Tony Stark, Steve begins to wonder if he’s ever going to be able to mend things between them.

Tony is no stranger to paternity claims from his female conquests, there’s a system in place for them. But when one of the tests actually comes back positive, he makes a rash decision to not tell anyone about it, not even Pepper Potts. All Mary Parker wants is for Tony to spend a little time with their son. Tony has a lot to think about in his life now, how he wants to run his company, how his life is going to change with the arc reactor, and what he’s going to do about his son, Peter. Then, the Avengers Initiative pops up, and in waltzes his childhood hero, and enemy, Captain America.

Follows the lives of the Starks, Parkers, and Rogers’, as they grow up, and grow in life.

I remember watching an episode of SuperNanny where the nanny showed a child's mother what its like to have ADHD by forcing her to read and memorize something with the TV blaring, music playing, and her children running around. Well, one thing led to the other and the mother said something along the lines of "oh my god he's trying to be good but he CAN'T" and man I sobbed while watching SuperNanny

Parenting Post: HELP! My child is a HELLRAISER!

It is no kept secret that I find my son, Max adorable. He is a handsome boy, with an infectious personality, a great will to learn and an endless hunger for adventure. He was, by my definition, a perfect child who would go on to do something incredible.

That ‘was’ my belief until something happened that my view began to change.

It appears that my son also has, like most children a real demand for just about everything: attention, food, music, things he’s not allowed etc.

He’s awfully loud, brash, will throw a tantrum and on occasions can lash out and hurt people.

This became a serious shock to the system when my partner and I were paused on the way to pick up Max from Nursery. We were made aware that he had had quite an appalling day in concern with attitude and behaviour. He was aggressive, loud, dismissive, relentless…quite simply, a very naughty boy.

Knowing that’s not the kind of child he normally is, I went inside to further investigate. It appears that Max had been placed on a behavioural scheme.

My exterior expressed understanding, inside of me, I was in total disarray.

Max? My beautiful two year old son! My very own little hero! A villain? HOW!? WHY!?  

When reading the report made about his day, I could’ve collapsed from the sheer shock. Two members of staff bitten, one child attacked, refusal to listen or behave, unwilling to remain in time out…I know Max has his bad days, but, my god this can’t be right! I’M RAISING HANNIBAL LECTER!

Who’s to blame for this monstrosity? I started thinking of where to point fingers!

Max? How could he? Why would he? The Nursery offer a fantastic service, it’s one of the best in its area. He has no respect for anybody. Is it too late to return his Christmas presents? Yeah! That’ll teach him a lesson. Maybe he doesn’t deserve dinner tonight. Should I consider screaming in his face?

The Nursery? Those deceitful witches! We pay a great deal of money and trust so we can work and study whilst my child is both minded and taught etiquette. This isn’t etiquette, this is feral! All this money we pay. We have to pull him out, or maybe we should contact the council and have them listed as unfit to supervise.

Me? Oh god, I’m a terrible parent. I’ve made him this way and I can’t turn back the time to fix it. How can I call myself a father if my child behaves like this. I’m the very reason behind this, I should be ashamed of myself.

Every direction in which I pointed was wrong. None of those are true.

Max IS a good boy. He isn’t a monster and everybody knows it.

The Nursery are spectacular, they are fully committed to doing their job at the best of their ability.

Me and Laura are good parents. This is a debate I try to steer clear from, but we aren’t trying to teach his right and wrongs incorrectly. Max is very much a reflection of how hard we work, the love we have for him and the dedication we show to being the very best parents we can be.

So why the behaviour report?

Sometimes, children misbehave. You pray that they don’t, everyone knows it’s no fun to have to punish or reprimand your own children. That’s your child, the very reason you are willing to sacrifice every inch of your life to raising a great child.

Remember the times you were naughty, we’re all guilty of some kind of misbehaviour, even as adults. Sometimes, we can look back to what we did wrong and ask ourselves, did we know any better at the time? In some cases, no we didn’t. With a two year old, it’s the same process. At that age, everything is still a a learning process. As they grow up, they tend to test and push boundaries, it’s all a part of understanding. Authority is there to answered to, but it is also something to question. Can I get away with this? Why must I not do this?

It’s highly unlikely that Max is going to develop into a mean, nasty, uncontrollable nut case. He’s only two. Life is way ahead of him and there’s so much time to learn and understand everything.

Even with this knowledge, I read the biting handout I received. They mentioned the consequences of constant biting. It’s worth asking yourself this: does my child REALLY bite all the time? In a lot of cases, no. Hardly ever.

Biting can spur from attention, discovery, jealousy, lack of stimulation (play things and activities), the approach to being told off (emotional feedback).

This isn’t the acts of a villain like Hannibal, Leatherface, the shark from Jaws. Children just have to get it wrong to get it right most of the time. That’s a lot of the reason of how we learn. I was told Max isn’t the only child on the scheme, most children that are on it end up off it very quickly.


Who is it up to get Max off of this scheme.

ANSWER: All of us.

Max needs to understand in himself what the best behaviour is in every situation.

Us and Nursery need to show and express that attitude and concern for other people. We need to make sure we are both on the same page when it comes to telling Max how to behave.

It won’t happen overnight, but if we all work hard to do what’s best for us all, we can get there.

IN CONCLUSION: Don’t blame yourself if your child seems to drive you up the wall, misbehaves, treats others incorrectly. It’s a phase, it happens to every child. It’s a process that has to be looked at and resolved. I assure you it can be, just keep your chin up and your will strong. Let’s hope Max shows everybody the real hero I know he is and can still become the boy to go on to do something special. I wish the very same for your children too.

Not sure what to do? May I recommend you watching the television show 'Supernanny’. I know it’s another person telling parents what to do, however, I find with a lot of her systems and ideas, she’s spot on.

If you have any questions or information that you want to share, go ahead and do so.

All the best,

Writer Dad

Took some tips from this lady and my god, it WORKS!;

As you may well know, the Wee Yin is going through her diva stage; the worst time being bedtime. It’s gotten even worse when we took the bottle off her. Anyway, to comfort the little monster, we have had to go in and lay down beside her as she needs a comforter of some sort. There are various problems that come with this;

  • we have to move like a ninja to get out of the room once she falls asleep and I can honestly say that I have absolutely no grace about me when it comes to movement. And my old man knees click every damn time I get up.
  • When laying down, I have to lay in a very awkward way that makes my neck all stiff. This can be a problem if the Wee Yin decides to NOT fall asleep straight away.
  • It doesn’t always work. The teeniest, tiniest bit of noise and BAM!! MUMMY, MUMMY, MUMMY! I swear to god we watch to much Big Bang Theory. 

So anyway, I remember watching her Supernanny program in work one day. I had nothing to do…Honest! And in it she lead the disgruntle girl in said program to her room and stood at the doorway until she fell asleep(the girl that is, keep up!) I was like, OMG! DOH! So simple, why the f**k have I never done this before?!? So tonight, when I got back from football, the little diva was still doing her best impression of Naomi Campbell when she went bat shit crazy at some photographer. In my best commanding voice, I try to do Patrick Warburton’s voice with a slight tinge of compassion, I said “it’s bedtime”, led her to bed and watched her from the doorway. HURRAH! after, five minutes she fell asleep and has not made a sound since!

This could be just a one-off as the Wee Yin is very adaptive, much like a Predator in the Predator films but unluckily for her but she’s met her match in me, Big Arnie, I mean, Big Daddy(no, not the late British professional wrestler)
