the suit that looks like it actually fits

People about 13s look: I can’t take someone who is dressed like that seriously

Me: But you could take someone seriously who danced like that

things girls do that are attractive that are not dainty or typically feminine:

  • yell angrily about some shit they’re fired up about and make good points but really angrily
  • yell excitedly about something they’re excited about
  • accidentally hit things because they are Too Damn Excited
  • put their hair in a messy ass hairdo because it’s convenient
  • focus hella hard on some project or whatever that they’re doing
  • strong athletic muscle sports thing. i can’t personally relate because i’m weak but you keep going, strong muscle athlete girls
  • call out men on their bullshit
  • when they give a goddamn point-by-point speech to call men out on their bullshit and you can see it in their eyes that they are not fucking around today
  • sing while walking around even though no one is really listening and no one asked but they actually have a really good singing voice
  • flip their fucking shit when they see a cute animal
  • make terrible, terrible choices about nutrition and diet and have zero regrets
  • wear mismatched awful fashion that just looks bad. i genuinely love that tbh
  • wear fashion that looks Great but it doesn’t fit the setting like fucking cosplay or fancy dresses or suits in casual settings. like they just do not care it’s good
  • do something utterly silly that little kids do, like run to jump into a puddle or color with crayons, and are just happy about it
  • when there’s a class discussion and somebody says some wrong shit and they just say “actually!!! you’re wrong!” and don’t back down
  • talk about some thing that men make fun of women for caring about, like fandoms or cute singers or makeup or literally anything, and don’t hold back even though someone is rolling their eyes

anyway i’m worried some of this sounds sarcastic because tumblr is fond of mocking girls for bad fashion and things but i genuinely find all of this attractive. feel free to add

DREAM DADDY X JC LEYENDECKER?? Just kidding… it’s an original piece but it was heavily influenced by his style. A print for Fan Expo @ table A37!
Just finished the sketch AHAH. This is actually my first time planning out my own composition for a print and it was SO HARD because I wanted to challenge myself (just kidding there was no Leyendecker piece with 7 people). But I felt like last time people lowkey thought I was cheap for taking his compositions LOL. Ok but really I looked up so many references and had a lot of trouble fitting them in and making it look unified and just good. Friends were actually asking me when I was going to make fancy suit daddies LOL. It’s supposed to look like a formal picture but I tried to make each of their personalities very evident. Robert is the only one with his shirt open and flower on the wrong side because he’s problematic. I originally had Hugo do the funny bunny ear pose on top of Joseph but my sister told me it was so out of character. Gonna spend the next few days painting this and I’ll post the final soon.
(Sorry for the WIP I didn’t want anyone to steal it because it’s been happening)

Ok I don’t have anyone to talk to right now, I just had to be socially trans in person for an hour while signing legal forms, and I’m strung out and tired. SO I’M GOING TO RANT ABOUT CONSTRUCTED LANGUAGES AND MAGICAL SCRIPTS.

Look, I get it. You want your conlang/magic script to look mystical, cryptic, special. You want it to look different than any other language while still looking like a language people write in. If you’re a spiritual person or magic-user this may even be a language you’re channeling and that you believe to be ancient in nature or otherwise pre-existing. But 95% of conlangs and magical scripts look totally fake and made-up, and this is not a judgment I’m casting on their actual grammatical structure or language theory or the languages they were based on. The thing that makes a language look like one people ever actually wrote in for hundreds of years, that makes it look like the letters/characters are all from the same language, is that it looks like a language that’s been written in whatever tools you are claiming or feel like it was traditionally written in.

Let’s take cuneiform:

Looks super-neat, right? Man, who’d ever think of having those wedges in an alphabet! It’s totally different than most modern languages out there and very distinctive, and the wedges are consistent across the letters, so it makes them all look like they’re from the same alphabet. This wasn’t just arbitrarily designed as a font style. There is a reason for this!

Cuneiform writing was pressed into wet clay with these shaped bits and that’s why it looks like that. It got stamped with wedges. That’s how (this type of) writing was done at the time. It’s a technological solution and that’s what makes the lettering get that peculiar stylization. You’ll get variants based on craftsmanship and tools, but basically the method is the same across various implementations. Once someone tried to write that in pencil, you could imagine it’d look different, and you’d see evidence of people’s hand-motion between strokes, becoming more of a tilt between letters.

For instance, English looks like it does, even in tumblr’s sans-serif fonts, because it can be constructed with a pen. When it gets fancy with a variable-width pressure-sensitive pen nib, you can get more complex and flowy, but notice the flow and arc still go with the movements natural for a hand to make:

Originally posted by heaven-knows-im-miserable-n0w

Those little trails between letters exist today because nib pens were drippy and left ink trails. The written language adapted to the tools to incorporate the trails and still make it look legible, and that’s why we have cursive writing at all. This is a simplified history but it’s basically there to make you think about the letter shapes in various traditional ways of writing in English and why it looks like it does instead of like cuneiform.

Which brings me to conlangs. If you want your brand new ancient-looking language to truly look like people have used it for eons, write it out with the tools you think those people would have used, and keep adapting the letters if you find that, say, a brush or nib pen can’t construct the weird arcs and whirls you’ve designed the language to have. Languages by and large are made to be convenient to write. If you don’t know how to write kanji, Chinese words probably look complex and arbitrary to you. But their shapes are logical when you see them written with a brush:

So if you have some arcane-looking swooshy script but it still looks kind of fake, think about where the weight should really be. It should be where the brush presses down heavier and the trailing marks are where the brush lifts up (and usually leaves the paper and ends the stroke). Where the stroke is wide on one end is where the brush initially met the paper. Above, you can see how one swish immediately flows into another, the strokes are like arrows leading across the page when you understand how they’re created. Pick up a brush and figure out an actual stroke order for your symbol. If logically the stroke seems like it’d leave someone’s hand smearing it trying to follow its arc, then logically that symbol would eventually get redesigned if it were in an actual language. Someone would figure out a better way to write it and everyone would adopt that way over time.

So practice writing your language with different tools. Consider a calligraphy course or even just a kit with a guidebook (or youtube training videos!). Written language is a tool that people use, magical as it can be. And if you’re using it for magical purposes such as woodburning it into tools or painting it onto things or writing it onto paper, consider that your symbols will change a bit according to the tools, just like with mundane languages. A wedge-shaped wood burner will get you something a bit closer to cuneiform. A brush will get you something flowy and not super-precise. Pencil will not leave ink trails and will get you something more technical and practical. Your written language logically should shift for that and adapt like a proper tool. And if you do that right, if you really use it, then it will look much more genuine because it will have experienced an actual evolution of form adapting to the physical tools it’s been worked with via.

And if you’re not using it for magic but are just using it for a fantasy setting where people use it for magic in the story, all the above would still apply to them.

Even with just one symbol not meant to be in a greater language, think about the tool you’re creating it with. It’s hard to make a realistic brush-style symbol in pencil. Use the tool that fits the symbol and you’ll produce something much more genuine-looking.

That’s it! I’m not a language expert, this is not meant to be A Real Factual History Of All Language, it’s just a rough primer in How To Make It Look Like A Language Is Actually Written With. It’s not meant to be a critique in whether your magical language is “real” enough or “magical” enough either. It’s simply some pointers in how to make a magical/constructed language that’s actually reasonable to write with and suits the tools you’re writing it with and the purposes you mean it for. Hundreds of years of written language evolution is hard to replace, but I believe in you.

  • Black on black. No tie, open two-buttoned suit jacket that hugs his waist, the top two buttons of his shirt are undone. Tailored wingtip derbies, black and matte- polished to perfection.
    • He’s actually the one who dislikes wearing suits the most (I mean, have you seen the guy, he literally looks like he throws on whatever he has lying on his bed).
    • Oh, but if you challenge him, or if the need arises- he’s going to be the sexiest guy in the room because he sure as hell isn’t going to lose at anything.
      • Hours of research and a lot of changing rooms is not going to be for nothing. If he’s going to suffer, he’s going to do some real damage before he goes (namely to your short-circuited brain and perhaps severe blood loss via nosebleed).
    • He tried the red and black combination once, until a girl actually came up to him and asked him which host club he worked at, and he’s stuck to black from then on.
    • Those undone buttons on his shirt? Collarbones. They’re so sharp that they can slice through paper, and it makes his neck slimmer and his smirk all the sexier.
    • Everything’s been absolutely tailored at least twice, and it’s so on purpose. Can you imagine those legs- miles and miles of slim height and oh, he knows you’re staring. He’ll wink right back.
      • Now that he thinks about it, he’s never had to buy his own drink before, and thus Kuroo’s legendary alcohol tolerance was born.

The Great Mall adventure -Bruce Wayne/Batfamily x Reader

Love the mall idea :-), and because I thought it might be redundant to write another story about shopping things, I joined two requests together, the mall thing, and @dannysanime​‘s request. Again, I feel like it’s “meh”, like I could write better…it’s really one of those months you know, Hope you guys will still like it

(My masterlist blog here :


-Dick, I swear to the gods, if you do not make up your mind right now, we’re leaving you here. You’ll have to sleep in beds from Ikea, and rely on people’s charity to eat every day. We’ll come visit you sometimes though. 

Your husband laughed at your words, but immediately glared at some paparazzi taking pictures from a corner. Those people always thought they were so damn sneaky, while flashing you right in the face with their cameras. Idiots. Under the famous “bat-glare” (or “Wayne-glare” for that matter), the two paparazzis slowly backed away, but Bruce knew they’d come back. 

-But moooom ! How can I choose so fast ? I don’t know if I like the blue suit or the black suit, or the white and black, or the…

-So fast ? We’ve been here for three hours Dick ! 

-Mom, buying a suit is serious business, you can’t expect me to choose one in less than…five hours ! 

-Let’s just buy them all then ! So we’re finally done with it. I’m hungry. You know I get mean when I’m hungry boy. Especially in my current condition !!

Bruce smiled at you, and wrapped an arm around your waist, his free hand resting lightly on your swollen belly, and laid a kiss on your forehead. You calmed down a bit, but your other sons looked at Dick, a slight panic in their eyes. You were kinda mean when hungry normally, but now that you were pregnant and had to eat for two…they weren’t up for your constant sarcasms right now. Your oldest kid got the message, taking all of the suits he pre-selected in his arms. He stopped in front of his father, and Bruce slipped his debit card in his mouth (since his arms were full you know). 

-Heeeere we go, now come on every body, let’s go let’s go let’s go !

Intergalactic-space-kittens: “So what would Anastasia look like with the actual dress Dimitri gave her (Without the continuity errors?)”

It´s pretty much impossible to recreate the dress 100% accurately since it literally changes designs mid-scene, but something like this I guess (she has always had that belt thou).

PS: I totally believe that the writers´ idea with the dress was that Anya tailored it to suit/fit her better. But even if that was the intent, the joke/character trait falls flat in the narrative since: 

  1. Not once has the film ever given us a reason to think that Anya can sow.
  2. Nobody ever points out that she altered it. 
  3. And even if you can remove lace from a dress, you cannot change the shade and pattern in the little time that passes in-between scene (it´s already sunset when Dimitri gives it to her). 

Conclusion: Anya is a sneaky rouge who specializes in stealing pretty dresses from unsuspecting travelers when her BF is being a fashion disaster.

Warm, salty sea air caressed your face and tousled your hair in the early light. Resting your mug of coffee on the porch railing, you let your gaze wander over the sprawling city toward the rolling hills and beyond. It was in the stillness of the morning where you allowed yourself to marvel in the fact that you now called this place home. In a few weeks, it would be two years since you arrived Los Angeles without a clue and barely a plan. It was amazing to think back on the path you had taken, the struggles you’ve had, and the sacrifices you have made.

Pressing the mug to your lips, you took a sip and felt a presence behind you seconds before a pair of muscular arms wrapped around your waist.

“The ocean is that way, you know,” he teased, hooking his thumb in the direction behind you.

Nerds Are Cute // 4:11 pm

Pairing: Reader x Tom

Featuring: Tom Holland

Warning: Teasing?? idk

Prompt: you were rushing to go out and lost your contacts.


You started to get a little frantic when you realized you only had five minutes until you had to leave for dinner with your boyfriend of 6 months. And that meant you only had five minutes to find your goddam contacts before you had to leave.

You couldn’t go to dinner without your contacts because you would be either legally blind or have to wear your glasses. You hated your glasses. You bought them almost two years ago when you thought big frames were in style. They weren’t nor will they ever be. They were black with thick lenses and the frames - oh god - they were so huge you could die honestly. They’re an absolute embarrassment.

One minute. You have only one minute until you have to leave. Your head was swarmed with different thoughts as you glared at random things around your apartment, everything was a blur. Shit. Your minute was gone! You quickly stumbled around until you found your book bag where your lens case was stuffed, pulling on your glasses. Huffing loudly, you trudged out the front door and slammed it shut, running down the stairwell in the building to the bottom floor.In a hurry to make it to the restaurant.

Your boyfriend chose a place on the Upper East Side because he could actually afford to take you to places like that. The restaurant was large, with security guards standing outside because it was one of the most common places for celebrities to eat.

“Name?” The front lady asked.

Smiling briefly you responded. “Uh, Holland.” She led you through rows of tables all seated with mostly familiar faces of celebrities. Your face lit up when you noticed Tom, he was dressed nicely in a fitted suit. He rose when he saw you, placing a kiss to your cheek before sitting down with you.

“You look different tonight.” He looked at you confused when your heart stopped when you remembered you were wearing your glasses.

“Oh, really?” You tried to play it cool. Maybe he won’t notice.

“When did you get glasses?” His eyes scanned over your whole face. Oh gulp.

“I’ve always had glasses,” You said quietly completely embarrassed.

“Really?” He asked astounded. “How come I’ve never seen you wear them?” He asked.

“Well I bought contacts so..” You shrugged it off.

“Okay, right. You look good in them.” He said making you blush, “like my little nerd.” Your nose scrunched in dismay at his choice of nickname.

“Let’s eat?” You changed the subject.

Half an hour into your meal, Tom couldn’t keep his mouth shut about your stupid glasses. “Look here,” he pointed to the back of the bottle of wine he ordered you two, “I simply don’t understand these words. Like potassium metabisulfite. You probably know what that is, right Nerd?” he asked cheekily.

You really wanted to throat punch him. “Oh c’mon, I knew you were always related to Einstein, you could see it in your eyes.”

“Tom,” You sighed.

“What?” He asked, enjoying his steak with his bubbling laughter.

“You’re annoying,” You said. He laughed.

“Babe, I’m only kidding because you do look very adorable in those glasses.” You blushed.


nohurrytoshout  asked:

The suits headcannons are 😩😩🙌🙌WOBDERFUL!! LLIKE SERIOUSLY, THE WAY YOU DESCRIBED THEM WITH SUITS IS JUST 🙏praissee. Please do continue them!!! Possibly terushima, futakuchi, noya, and tanaka?? THANK YOU SOM MUCH

Sure! And I see you have a type. ;3 Bonus Ushijima and Tendou for you.

[The original suits headcanon here]


  • Three-piece, a brown so impossibly dark that under the wrong lighting it’s almost certainly black. Notch lapel and two buttoned, his jacket’s loose and open on top of a pristine white shirt. The kickers are his tie and accessories- a rich, metallic dark gold with matching watch chain and pocket square, highlighting his bronzed skin and blonde undercut. A pair of simple cap toe derbies finish the look.
    • You see, he knows, that you’d expect him to wear something flashy to match his personality and his wicked tongue piercing, but he also knows that he looks like an oasis in a desert in black and gold.
      • He does indulge his flashy side with his surprisingly smart-casual array of clothes- another formal favourite of his is a black and white checkered jacket on top of a simple black turtleneck with black pants and shoes.
    • He’s a naturally slim person, but his suits are structured to give him the confidence to match his smirk. Pants slim fitted to shape around his sleek calves, it makes him look miles tall.
      • His hair, when he actually tries, is slicked back firmer than usual, and there are absolutely no wisps of hair blocking the sinful expression he shoots at you.
    • Playing with his cuffs when he’s bored just doesn’t kick it for him. He prefers to rest his weight on one leg and slide the tips of his fingers into his pant pockets cockily.
      • He’s always the first one to get asked to dance, with his rough undercut and slick outfit, and boy are they all surprised because this man, despite looking like a million dollars, dances like he’s earning his keep dollar by dollar.
        • Give him a pole. Give him a fucking pole, and you’ll be going home a few items of clothing short tonight.

Darkiplier’s Manipulation is Rather Easy to Spot

I was rewatching “A Date With Markiplier” and going down the first route I did (which got the Chocolate Ending), and I noticed something. I’m not sure whether or not this was intentional, but I think it’s a nice detail.

Dark always acts more serious than Mark, and it’s actually a pretty big sign of Dark’s manipulation. Just listen to the dialogue that both Marks are saying when you have to shoot one of them at the end of the “FREEDOM” video.

Left (Mark): Shoot him! Shoot him now! You don’t have much time. He’s going to kill everybody! …What’re you talk–? Wh-Why are you even debating this?! Shoot him! Shoot him now! He’s Dark, I’m Mark! You have to trust me, not him! He’s a liar! He’s weird, he’s got weird eyes and all that stuff… Don’t trust him at all! Please, shoot him, now!

Right (Dark): Shoot him! Shoot him, now please! Shoot him right now, please. Shoot him. He needs to die. He is Dark, he’s a bad influence. He takes over everything that you ever loved! Please, shoot him right now! Don’t listen to him. He’s a liar. Please shoot him! He is a bad man, and does bad things to good people. You have to trust me…

Mark has said that Dark is a social manipulator, so Dark wants it to seem like he genuinely cares about you by trying to point out how “Dark” is bad and he needs to die, for your safety of course. Dark also seems a lot more… troubled about the situation, I guess you could say. He’s a pretty good actor, but listen to Mark. Even when trying to convince you to shoot someone, he finds it fit to mention that the other is “weird” and “has weird eyes, and all that stuff…” He also actually mentions you in a way other than saying, “Shoot him!”, which I believe shows he’s actually paying attention to you while Dark isn’t. All this seems rather awkward, compared to the relatively charismatic spiel Dark is giving about the other being a truly bad person, at least. It just seems overdone in analyzation. When you look into it, our awkward goofball is rather easy to spot between the pair.

It’s also interesting to note that in this, Mark seems more concerned about the fact Dark’s going to kill others and use you, while Dark is only concerned that you kill Mark so he can take control. When I did this the first time, I was only watching the movements and saw that Dark was on the left before you looked down, and that the Mark on the right (actually Dark) took off the caution tape, which supposedly “Mark” was wearing when he came in (bless Tyler he barely fit into that suit). Thus, I shot the wrong Mark and doomed myself to eternal damnation with the demon Darkiplier.

Also, as stated in one of the charity livestreams, Dark doesn’t have a shadow. The video annotations popped up before I could even fathom to check something like that that, so
 ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ oops. Sorry, Mark.

I believe there’s enough stuff there for evidence, but under the cut I go through the actions of the Chocolate and Vanilla endings that show these behaviours as well, as well as a brief mention of Markiplier TV. (I didn’t want this post to appear too long). If you’re interested, I will see you under the cut!

fullmetaldude1  asked:

I noticed you did a Meta on Keith and Lance's Bayards changing and I was wondering what your thoughts on Allura's whip are?

Oooooh now this is a great question fullmetaldude. (And for those unaware, this is the post referred to).

My initial reaction to Allura’s blue whip bayard was ‘woah, not what I expected, but cool.’ My guess would have been a staff or blunt force object of some kind—the staff because we’ve seen Allura wield one before of her own choice, and a blunt force object simply because she is impressively strong and her main tactic in S1 was ‘throw something large and heavy at it’ (a sentry at other sentries, Shiro at/through a door, etc). And also because it would match her personality more—but more on that in a second.

The thing about a whip bayard is that the first word that comes to mind (for me, at least) is ‘flexibility.’ And in seasons 1 and 2, flexibility is not a word I would have used to describe Allura. Allura is headstrong, very set in her decisions once she makes them, and very stubborn. This is a good thing when fighting a war, and not unsurprising for a princess or leader figure, who needs to be confident in their decisions for their people. It does make things a bit difficult when it comes to accepting other decisions however, which is something Allura has struggled with in the past. In season 1 she flatly refused to be left behind in S1E10, even though her presence ultimately did not help the initial overall mission all that much and did get her captured. Throughout most of season 2 she is extremely stubborn about how she feels about the Galra, and it takes Keith’s double status as both a person of Galra descent AND a friend to change her mind (and notice, she’s rather cool with the Blade of Marmora Galra even after that). She is headstrong about going into the final plan against Zarkon even though it could kill her, and won’t be swayed on this. Her stubbornness and inflexibility is partly how she defeats Haggar, because she flatly refuses to yield in that battle.

And her stubbornness, and her need to have or be in control, is a problem with the Red Lion. She practically begs the Red Lion to accept her as its paladin, but it doesn’t listen. And we’re told that the reason Lance is chosen is because he accepts the fact that someone else is destined to lead when he can’t, and steps aside and agrees to play a supporting role instead, which Allura was incapable of doing. She couldn’t surrender control like that. It’s also the reason she struggles so much with flying the Blue Lion at first, because this is a skill she doesn’t have. to quote her in S3E3, “I’ve tried asking you nicely, and I’ve tried commanding you. What do you want from me?”

And just a few moments later, she realizes, “The universe depends on me, but I can’t control everything. I…I need your help.” And this is when the Blue Lion reacts to her for real, because she surrenders full control, asks for help, and accepts that she can’t blunt-force her way through this by herself. She needs to be flexible and accept situations as they come, not always as a leader or as an authority figure.

So to me, it’s actually kind of fitting that she does end up with a whip. It seems to be a strong indication of a personality change for her too, or at least a step up in maturity for her. The whip is flexible and adaptive, just like she’s learning to be. She can still be pretty stubborn with it, but it’s a sign that she’s willing to look at things a little differently before, and try things a different way…to adapt to a situation, rather than force it to suit her.

Okay, so let’s do that meta combat analysis, with that as a background.

Standard form. Pretty simplistic, looks more or less like an untransformed bayard, with a single blue piece at the front. Not impressive by itself, but it does hold a great deal of potential. Very much like Pidge’s bayard in that there’s more than initially meets the eye.

Whip extended. The blue piece is actually a solid tip on the end of the energy material (whatever it is), although it’s unclear if this is for balance/weight or for cutting, as Allura has used the energy piece to slice or catch things as well. Allura has used this over a great deal of range, and as far as I can tell in the few fight scenes we’ve seen, there is no limit to how far it can reach, as long as Allura can snap it that far. Possibly it relies on willpower. The jury’s out on that one, since we still don’t really know how bayards function.

And this whip has an incredible amount of flexibility in combat, something Allura uses to great skill and effect….far more than one might think a whip would initially be capable of. She has:

Used it to block attacks, specifically energy blasts:

To catch opponents, also illustrating that she can touch the energy piece with no harm to herself:

To cut opponents in half (with the energy piece, note):

To throw opponents:

(And also to fling opponents into other opponents, but that’s a hard one to screenshot haha. Still a favorite tactic of hers though)

To disarm or prevent the use of a weapon:

And when she uses it Allura is always in motion, never stopping her movements to line up a shot or think about what to do next. The fact that it also changes between slicing through opponents and cutting things, or can be used for grappling and locking down weapons without destroying them, indicates intent and choice with every movement and form of attack. This is a very fluid, flexible weapon, not unlike the water the Blue Lion is associated with, and Allura uses it this way very well. She’s learning to adapt to things, not just smash her way through each fight that comes at her, and to approach the situations in different ways depending on what’s called for and depending on her surroundings.

This is also not an easy kind of weapon to use. Whips take practice to use properly, and the way Allura uses this one, as a shield in addition to as an offensive weapon, is not typical for this type of weapon on Earth. You can guarantee she’s trained with a weapon like this at some point.

And finally, although I’m sure it has no relevance, there was one thing that really interested me. This energy whip isn’t just a beam of pure light or whatever the substance is. It’s actually got some degree of braiding or interconnected pieces:

Which is definitely intriguing, but there is actually one other place we’ve seen this kind of thing before, too:

Just sayin’. Maybe we should’ve seen this one coming :)

Good question!

anonymous asked:

Your supernatural AU, does Bucky ever go into a rut? Does he get more possessive of Tony during said rut? Does Steve get over full cause Bucky is so full of sex energy from said rut? Tony being the main focus of Buckys rut cause hot. Steve loves watching Bucky go wild on Tony right?

I mean if not for the club he probably would not go into rut. A werewolf’s rut is dependent on the presence of females about to go into heat. Since Steve and Bucky’s club is a safe hangout place for the supernatural, it stands to reason that during that time of year, there’s an influx of werewolves that show up. Bucky is very happy with his mate Steve and then his added mate Tony but with the scent of all these other werewolves about to go into heat looking for mates, there is a part of his hind-brain that goes Ah yes, it’s the time to make pups. Better get on that before the season’s over.

He definitely gets more possessive of Tony during rut. His smaller mate is so delicate and sensitive that he needs extra care. Steve can take care of himself (one time he watched Steve heave a troll out of the club and the troll skidded several feet), but Tony–Tony needs more protection. Tony does most of his work from his tablet during this week. When he’s not being fucked within an inch of his life and being knotted. At some points he even passes out, Bucky’s focus is so single-minded.

Steve does love watching Bucky go wild on Tony! But, uh, there is a limit to how much he can watch–not because he gets bored, but because he gets concerned for how much Tony can take. Tony can take a lot, of course, the human body isn’t delicate as tissue paper or anything, but… being constantly fucked and knotted and cleaned with Bucky’s tongue? Tony needs a break from time to time. (And Steve actually needs a break from eating because hoo boy is he getting so full that his stomach is starting to hurt.) So when Tony gives him desperate eyes, uses the code word they came up with meaning ‘I can’t take another fucking please help me,’ Steve does his best to look jealous and miserable. Because while Bucky tries to give Steve attention while he’s fucking their smaller mate, he is aware that by virtue of actually fucking Tony, he is probably ignoring Steve a little.

Bucky doesn’t like it when his mates are jealous and miserable. So he finishes licking up his mess between Tony’s cheeks and then crawls over to Steve and starts fucking him instead. Steve uses his powers to keep Bucky’s focus on him while Tony recovers and stumbles off to get water, a snack, go to the bathroom, send some emails. It also has the added bonus of easing his stomachache from too much food. Of course, even Steve can get all fucked out during this time of year, so he can only give Tony so long a reprieve before Bucky gets up to drag their wayward mate back to the bedroom. Luckily by that time Bucky’s wolf hind-brain is like “we neglected Steve. Steve can’t be neglected. His feelings are just as fragile as Tony’s.” (They’re really not but Steve has never really had success arguing with Bucky’s hind-brain.) So he takes turns knotting them and his hind-brain hopes that this will help make it so at least one of his mates gets pregnant this year.

(“Do you actually want kids?” Tony asks awkwardly from the shower. Bucky moans from where he’s lying on the tile floor because every muscle in his body hurts from constantly fucking his mates for a week. “I mean, in an abstract way, maybe? It’s more of an instinct thing but I wouldn’t mind having a pup around.” “He’s getting to that age where he worries about his biological clock,” Steve teases, and yelps when Bucky gives him a chiding slap on the ass. “Ow!” “I mean. I guess I wouldn’t mind?” Tony says unsurely, even though he’s pretty terrified at the thought, because he desperately doesn’t want to become his father. “Oh, doll, that’s so sweet,” Bucky answers, touched. “But no human would adopt to us because of Steve and most supernatural orphanages would give us the side-eye because I’m a werewolf with two mates. Makes it seem like I’m not suited for commitment.” Steve and Tony both make unhappy noises at him because he is very committed to both of them and if anyone thinks he’s not suited for commitment just because he has two mates they have clearly never seen Bucky doting on both of them.)

((“I could help,” Jarvis suggests when Tony is back at Stark Industries. Tony pours coffee in his lap in shock, then runs to the bathroom because ow ow ouch oh God. “What?!” he exclaims as he blots at his red thighs with a damp paper towel. “I could help,” Jarvis repeats. “It’s well within my power to help you or Steve carry a child.” “Jarvis that’s horrifying. Where would it even come out. No! Don’t answer that. I don’t wanna know.” Jarvis glows with amusement. “Suit yourself.”))

(((“Seriously?” Steve whispers, then glances over at the couch where Bucky is lying with bags of frozen peas wherever they can fit because he’s still sore. He goes back to cutting up chicken for fajitas. “Where would it even come out? Actually no, don’t tell me. That’s terrifying.” “Yeah, that’s what I said,” Tony agrees quietly, chopping a tomato. “…But seriously, he could do that?” Steve asks again after a moment. “Apparently. He said it’s ‘well within his power.’” “Creepy,” Steve murmurs, but can’t help but glance at Tony and imagine what he would look like if he were pregnant. “Both of us? At the same time? He can’t possibly be that powerful.” Jarvis glitters with amusement. He is absolutely that powerful and he honestly wouldn’t mind proving it. He thinks it would be hilarious watching Bucky worry about his pregnant mates and trying to take care of both these independent assholes. Tony would probably do something dangerous in his lab and Steve would probably still try and physically throw unruly patrons out of the club. “…Why did Jarvis just ask me if werewolves can get ulcers?” Bucky whines from the couch. “I don’t know,” Tony answers, and then looks up from the tomato. “Wait, can you?” Bucky sighs.)))
