For the fic title thing: "Burning the midnight oil" ... <3

Witch!Darcy is tired of Jane and Tony, (and yes, even occasionally Bruce) pulling science all-nighters that end up in explosions or portals into the vacuum of space or the occasional murder-bot. She decides to try her hand at a bed-time spell that is supposed to gradually increase drowsiness and gently suggest (okay, compel) the individuals in a limited sphere of influence to go to bed.

Except something goes wrong with the casting and everyone on the top 10 floors gets put into a deep sleep. Well, everyone knows the way to break that kind of spell is true loves kiss. Que Darcy having to run around and find the true loves for everyone (including all the avengers in residence and Jane as well as a few unlucky maintenance workers).  For some this is easy. One phone call to Pepper and Laura, and a shout out to Heimdall and Tony, Clint, and Jane are squared away. Tracking down Betty Ross is a little more tricky, but with Tony’s help, and the HR next of kin form, they manage to break the spell for everyone except Steve and Bucky.

Darcy uses her history books and magical scrying abilities in an attempt to locate any lost loves from the past, and her hacking and snooping skills to dig into their lives in the 21st century to find any secret paramours they might be hiding. With Peggy Carter passed on and Steve and Sharon calling quits on their long-distance thing Steve spends all his time with his team and Bucky.  And Bucky’s social calendar is only more bleak. His only contact seems to be Steve and Sam and his therapist who is a 65 year old lesbian.  

As she sifts through their lives, though, she finds Steve’s love of sketching and drawing, and his appreciation for all things Brooklyn, as well as his weird obsession with Alfred Hichcock, and Bucky’s nerd boner for all things space and his collection of vintage vinyl records and extensive Bruce Lee DVD set, but aside from their epic love for each other, which may or may not be totally platonic, there’s nobody else in their lives.

Quilt ridden and feeling a duty to see these incredible men back on their feet, she decides to lay one on them both.

Shock and surprise all round when it works.

Unfortunately, then Darcy has some ‘splainin’ to do.

What kind of fun things do Scully and Will do without Mulder

Started out fun but ended up being a bit angsty??

Things Scully and William do without Mulder

She takes him to the park. They have deep conversations- well, as deep as a seven year old can get. He begs for a dog, she says maybe and stops by the pound to “look.” After weeks of persisting, she surprises both herself and Mulder when they come home with Boomer following close behind.

She reads him a bedtime story every night. When he’s two, he requests the “budder-fy” story. When he’s three, he starts reading a word here and there. She’s not sure if he actually knows the words or if he just remembers them from her reading it so much.

When he’s four, he asks why grandma Scully calls daddy “Fox.” She tells him it’s his first name, like his first name is William. He thinks it’s the funniest thing he’s ever heard. A week later, after bath time, she gives him a new towel. He sees it and shrieks. Running through the house, stark naked, yelling “fox” over and over again. She got him a fox towel. It’s safe to say foxes are his favorite animal.

She takes him to the museum the first Thursday of every month. He loves the Smithsonian. Especially the air and space museum. Scully rolls her eyes when he pesters the workers about space travel and the existence of extraterrestrial life. “But my dad says…” he always argues. Scully always leaves with deeper laugh lines on her face.

She walks him to school every morning. Despite his insistence that he’s a big boy now and can handle walking to the front doors alone, she can’t get over how independent her little boy is becoming.

Every year on her sister’s birthday, she takes him to visit Aunt Missy’s grave site. She tells him stories about her youth, about all the good memories she had with Melissa. She tells him about her eccentric personality and how she could just sense things. She would have loved Will, spoiled him rotten too.

When he’s ten, she takes him to the docks and teaches him how to sail, like her father taught her.

To Scully, shopping was based out of necessity. Very rarely would she find joy from shopping. Her petite size made it difficult to find cheap clothing and her job made it so expensive clothing seriously hurt her bank account. But for some reason, Will loved shopping. He would spend hours going through rack after rack, picking out clothes not only for him but for everyone. “This tie isn’t too bad, mom. You think dad would like it? I’m getting a space vibe from it.” “Oh! Grandma would love this! Mom! We have to get this for her!” “Please mom? It would look so good on you!” She doesn’t know where he got it from… Maybe all those trips to Missy’s grave had something to do with it.

His first time on an airplane was with just Scully there. Mulder had taken a case when Scully stayed home sick with Will and had found himself in some trouble. The flight from one Washington to another was long and full of Scully calmly answering each and every one of his questions. “Is dad okay?” “How’d he get in the hospital?” “Mom, what if he dies?”

It was like any other Saturday morning when a tall and gangly William walked into the kitchen. “I have a question, mom.” Scully put down her mug of coffee and payed full attention to her freckled son. “Is it okay to like boys and girls?” He asked, barely making eye contact. Scully slowly took off her reading glasses and approached him with a warm and inviting hug. “Of course it’s okay, Will. It’s okay to love anyone your heart tells you to love.”

I love how Sportacus is never even slightly surprised when it turns out to be Robbie causing all the trouble around town. I’m like 80% sure he’s playing along with Robbie’s schemes at this point tbh
