this is not a good picture of howard

What happens when tinytony meets Pepper and Rhodey?

“Tony?” asks Peter, when he looks at the big watch in their living room.

“Yes.” answers Tony immediately and Peter sees him on the ground. Eddy sits besides Tony and Tony has his coloring book in front of him.

“I have a surprise for you.” says Peter and Tony looks up at that.

“Why?” asks Tony and puts his pencils back in the case. Peter can’t believe that he is a toddler sometimes. Tony just tries so hard.

And isn’t that even more sad? Because no child in the world should have to try that hard. And you know whats even sadder? Normally Tony is 47 years old and he still tries so hard… and nobody sees it.

“Because you were such a good boy!” says Peter and he sounds extra happy. Tony smiles a bit at that. Its not his big smile, its a really shy one and its Peters favorite.

“Really?” asks Tony and then holds his hands out. Peter grins and helps him up.

“Really. You are the best kid in the whole world.” says Peter and Tony shakes his head at that.

“ ’m not.” mumbles Tony and takes a few steps forward. It goes a lot better now with his walking but sometimes he still wobbles.

“You are. So do you wanna see your surprise?” asks Peter and Tony nods. He bends down again and takes Eddy in his hand. Then he smiles brightly.

“With Eddy?” asks Tony just to be sure and Peter nods.

“We wouldn’t want to leave without Eddy. So we are going down to the living room and we will meet somebody there.” says Peter and then looks at Tony.

He doesn’t wear a onesie this time, because Peter thinks he should look especially good today. So Tony wears a cute little dungarees and a striped shirt. He also has a pacifier with him.

Because Peter had noticed that Tony needed that when he was nervous or he would suck on his thumb. Which was also really cute… but not very hygienic.

“Bucky?” asks Tony when he takes Peters hand. Peter sighs. Yes they wanted to play with Bucky today. He nearly forgot about that.

“No but we will see him later, hm? We are going to meet your aunt Pepper and Uncle Rhodey.” says Peter and Tony looks a bit afraid.

“Why?” he asks and nearly stumbles. Peter catches him and then picks him up.

“Because they want to meet my sweet little boy,” explains Peter and goes over to the elevator.

“Yours?” asks Tony and his eyes are wide and full of hope. Peter swallows at that. He knows that he could break Tony easily now.

“Yeah of course.” Peter says and his voice cracks at that. Tony smiles that cute smile again and Peter can even see his dimple. Its a smile that is only reserved for Peter.

“Love you lots.” says Tony and he is still in Peters arms but he hugs Peter anyway as best as he can. He even kisses Peters cheek.

“Love you to the moon and back.” whispers Peter and Tony giggles.

“Thats a lot.” he whispers surprised and cuddles into Peter. Peter nods because he can’t speak anymore or he would start crying for real.

The elevator opens again and Peter wipes a few tears away. This wasn’t how he pictured the day. But even if Tony would stay little, he would always be there for him.

“Ms. Potts?” asks Peter then and Pepper turns around at that. She looks perfect like always and smiles at them.

“Peter. I told you to call me Pepper.”

Peter nods at that and smiles sheepishly at her. He knows her for a certain time but he is still a bit afraid of her.

“Tony.” she says then and looks at the little boy, who still hides his face against Peters neck.

Peter kisses his dark curls and then sets Tony down. Tony hides behind Peters legs and looks up at Pepper.

“Hey Tony.” says Pepper and Tony draws a deep breath. Then he steps in front of Peter and holds his hand out.

Pepper seems confused for a moment, but with a very delicate move, she kneels down in her heels and takes Tonys hand.

“My name is Anthony. It’s nice to meet you Ms. Potts. The pleasure is all mine.” squeaks Tony and smiles shyly.

“Oh god. What a gentleman.” says Pepper and Tony kisses her knuckles.

Peter is sure he died from the cuteness.

“But you don’t have to be so formal, hm? I’m your Auntie Pepper.” says Pepper then and Tony seems to think about that.

“Auntie Peppa?” he asks and tries to say her name right. Pepper smiles.

“Yes. So if you ever want some new toys, ask me.” smiles Pepper than and Tony giggles.

“Thank you. But i have many toys. I don’t need more.” says Tony and looks at Peter.

Peter strokes his hair and shrugs. Well it is true. Tony has a lot already. But Peter would buy him anything if Tony just said the word.

“Aw aren’t you cute.” says Pepper and Tony nods at that.

“But i… uhm can i have some toys for my friends?” asks Tony then and promptly his thumb goes into his mouth. So he is nervous.

“For your friends?” asks Pepper because the last time she had seen Tony he hadn’t said anything nice about the other avengers.

“Yes. I… i saw that they didn’t have any toys and.. and thats why Clint took Eddy. Cause he hasn’t a Eddy for himself. And… and i don’t want them to be sad.” says Tony and mumbles the words around his thumb.

Peter can’t believe him. Although Clint hurt Eddy, Tony still wants to do something for him and forgives him that easily. He is so precious.

“Of course.” says Pepper and smiles. Peter kneels down and takes Tonys thumb out of his mouth. He gives him the pacifier instead. Tony sucks a bit and smiles behind the red pacifier.

“Thank you.” he says to Pepper again and then cuddles Eddy a bit more.

Peter and Pepper go over to table and sit down at that.  Tony sits down in front of the couch and looks at the tv. A children show is on and Tony giggles every few minutes. But he can’t hear them. Which is good for their conversation.

“I have never seen him that happy.” says Pepper and looks down at the little one. Peter nods.

“But aren’t all kids happy?” Peter asks back and Pepper shakes her head.

“No. Tony wasn’t a happy child. Well i guess he was at first. But Howard and Maria weren’t always there. He doesn’t talk about it, but i saw pictures of him where he was that little and already working in the lab. He loved that of course…but he wasn’t that happy.” says Pepper and Peter feels bad for Tony.

Maybe this is his second chance. Even if its only for a while.

“I’m glad you are watching out for him.” says Pepper and she smiles.

“I’m glad i can be there for him.” says Peter and then the door opens again. Its Rhodey. Peter smiles, he likes him a lot.

“Hey.” says Rhodey and he still goes a bit unsteady. Tony looks up at that.

Pepper greets Rhodey with a kiss on the cheek and Peter gets a warm handshake.

“Hey Rhodey.” says Peter and then looks back to Tony.

“Bambino. Your uncle is here.” says Peter and laughs at Rhodeys facial expression. Tony takes Eddy and then comes over. He holds his hand out again.

“I’m Anthony.” he says again and Rhodey laughs.

“Believe me i know. Come here and greet your uncle properly.” say Rhodey and sits on a chair. He picks Tony up and sets him down on his lap.

“What a handsome little man.” says Rhodey and Tony giggles.

“Thank you.” says Tony shyly around his pacifier.

“And your favorite uncle has a surprise for you!” says Rhodey and shows Tony a packet. Tony gasps and the pacifier falls to the ground.

Peter picks it up and then goes over to the sink and washes the dust off.

Tony opens the packet and squeals. Its a little car, that he can control with a tele control. Tony wiggles and Rhodey sets him back down. Tony opens the packet immediately.

Then he stops.

“Thank you Uncle Rhodey!” he says and hugs Rhodey real tight. Then he goes back to the car. Rhodey sits down next to him on the ground and helps him.

Peter makes tea for him and Pepper and also a coffee for Rhodey. The next hours are full of Tonys laughter. Eddy sits in the little car and Tony drives him around.

Its two hours later that Tony yawns a lot. He can’t keep his eyes open and Peter laughs.

“Hey bambino. Time for your nap.” says Peter and goes over. Tony pouts but he doesn’t object.

“Say goodbye to your aunt and uncle.” says Peter and Tony waves at them.

“Bye bye.” he says and blows them a kiss. Pepper laughs at that and Rhodey comes over and pinches his cheek.

“You cute little boy.” says Pepper and Tony nods proudly.

Peter says his goodbyes, too and then takes them back to their own apartment. He goes over to Tonys room and lays him in his crib.

Tony yawns again and cuddles Eddy.

“Goodnight my sweet boy.” whispers Peter and kisses Tonys cheek. Tony is already out like a light.

Peter smiles down at him. He is glad that Tony can finally enjoy himself.

I look at the pictures of frat!Steve and nerd!Tony and all I can think about is Kingsman AU

Kingsman AU where Steve is brought in by Howard who doesn’t believe in his son and thinks that Tony isn’t good for this work, while Tony is brought in by Peggy, who taught him everything she knows and can do

Anon, THIS IDEA IS BRILLIANT

Steve is just a boy from Boston who’s looking after his sick mother while working two jobs. He encounters Howard outside of the local police station because Steve had been taking in for being in a fight. Howard believes that Steve has what it takes to be the next Kingsman and Steve’s not entirely sure but decides to follow Howard after Howard promises to take care of his mother’s medical bills. 

Tony has constantly been living in Howard’s shadow, has never been given a chance to shine because Howard has never believed in him. When Howard told Tony that he won’t be sponsoring him for the position, Tony didn’t care but was a little heartbroken at the fact. He knew that his father didn’t really care for him but it still doesn’t make the sting go away. His godmother, Peggy, decides to sponsor him herself and trains him with all that she knows which a whole damn lot. Tony soon becomes one of the most skilled potential spies and is definitely going to give the rest of the recruits a run of their money.

I mean, he was trained by Peggy who’s a badass on all levels. 

Steve and Tony meet, Tony harboring an instant dislike to Steve while Steve sees Tony as this stuck-up rich boy who hates not getting his way. This all changes when they have to work together to get out a certain situation and the two of them begin to like each other, agreeing to work together as partners. 

But of course, they start falling in love in with each other and things get really complicated!

Our beloved queen of pranks got pranked herself today and it was glorious! 

Hayley had given her phone to her colleague, Olly Robinson, to take this photo. While he had it, he posted this on her Instagram:

wellhayley: Just nipping to the loo to squeeze one out. (x)

It didn’t take long for her to notice:

wellhayley: OH MY GOD IVE BEEN HACKED
wellhayley: OLLY ROBINSON YOU TOOL @olly_rob

Then she posted this lovely screenshot:

wellhayley: You got me good, @olly_rob I cannot believe I trusted you with my phone. #mortified (x)

I’m smelling sweet, sweet revenge! You do not want to be on Hayley’s bad side, she will come for you full force! I can’t wait to see how she’ll get back at him!

And judging by this photo’s caption, I’m sure we won’t have to wait long… Get extra creative and nasty this time, girl!

wellhayley: And so Howards End has ended principal photography. That’s a picture wrap. 11 weeks of working with this cast and crew. Words are blunt instruments here. I saw what you all did, day in and day out. The enthusiasm, craft, skill, warmth and humour. I’ll miss you all. Apart from @olly_rob who can kiss my ass. I’ll get you back, Olly. 😜😂 (x)

summerpipedream replied to your post: skye07 replied to your post: …

Cackles - I can just picture Howard mouthing with hand motions, “I’m watching you” to Steve, all previous friendliness dissipated as he watches him suspiciously from across the room.

Lmaoooo Protective!Howard gives me life.

Howard corners Steve later, after dinner, when Tony has gone on his evening sniff around the property. “What are your intentions with my son?!”

“…I intend to never, ever touch him,” Steve says fearfully.

“He’s too good for you!”

“Yes.”

“I’m watching you, Rogers.”

Steve hadn’t even felt this scared when he crashed the plane into the ice. “I can’t say the same for Bucky, though?”

Bucky’s here too?!

“Uh. Yes. But. Not all the way? Mentally, I mean.”

“Unbelievable,” Howard says, mostly to himself but also partly to Steve. “I’m going to get arrested for murder even though I’m technically dead in this stupid timeline.”

In the woods on the property, in his wolf skin, Bucky shivers for reasons unknown and doesn’t come back to the mansion that night.

D.Gray Man Cafe

So today, I went to the DGM collaboration cafe. 

The last one I did was the Haikyuu!! cafe in collaboration with Animate and I remember it was really impressive and the atmosphere was nice. Since DGM isn’t aired yet, there’s a lot less material for the decoration and everything. But still, I liked it. 

About the menu, let me tell you I had a hell of a time deciding what to order. The thing is, this kind of cafe are usually expensive, so you have to choose carefully. 
The one dish I knew I wanted to try was the Timcampy Omurice (because yes, if you don’t know food and drinks are all made to match the characters)

I got it. It was cute AND tasty. For the others dishes we had sandwiches for Allen, Soba for Kanda (surprising uh ?), Yakiniku for Lavi (he has great taste), Hamburger for the Earl and some crab pasta for Tyki. 

I’M SORRY TIM DON’T HATE ME ! 
For dessert, I choose Allen’s Mitarashi Dango. Look at how good it looks !

I ate miratashi dango before. And I’m always amazed about how Allen can manage to eat about thirty of this in one meal. Because it doesn’t look like it, but once you’ve eaten two or three, you’re full. (Btw it’s matcha ice cream, red beans paste and wipped cream in the corner)
The two others dessert were a pumpkin pie for Link (it looked yummy) and a S’more parfait for Lavi (was a sparkling candle on it).

I tried two different drinks. The one above is Allen’s mango frappe. I love mango, and since it’s really hot in Japan right now, it was cool and sweet. The other drink I tried was blue. Piece of advice : there’s always a blue drink in collaboration cafe, and i’s always good. Order it. 
Bonus, this is the only thing on the menu linked to two characters. It was called “Yuu and Alma’s blue ice”. 

And I have to tell you, I nearly chocked on my food at some ponit, because a girl next to me ordered Cross’ drink (which was called Pink Lady fyi) and the waiter gave her the drink, and then came back and said “it was add to Allen’s debts” and then handed her a piece of paper with debts on it. And I was laughing so much because godammit Cross Marian !!! 
Lavi’s drink (tapioca and blood orange drink) was pretty popular and Komui’s drink (you could read “Komubitan D” on the menu and I was like noooope, we all know what happened last time) was served in a fricking beaker !
Road, Link, the Earl, Lenalee and Timcampy also had drinks.

The fun thing when you order in a cafe like that, is that with every dishes you get little pictures or posters of the characters. And then the customers look around to exchange the ones they want or not. 

In conclusion (sorry for the long ass post) it was great and worth the money, and I’ll be back in three days to tell you about the premiere in Shinjuku !

anonymous asked:

Please elaborate on the 🍑🍑 nature of this book/film for those of us unaware but entirely ready to see armie hammer like this

honestly, friend, I’m labouring the 🍑  point because otherwise I’ll think too hard about this movie and start FUCKING CRYING. 

okay, so the Plot of the book is a 17-year-old Italian boy falling in deep, obsessive, passionate love with a 24-year-old American grad student who’s staying at his family’s villa for the summer. as you can imagine, being narrated by a lovelorn bisexual teenager, it’s INCREDIBLY FRAUGHT, and can probably best be summed up by the scene in which their bare feet touch under the dining table and it’s so intense that Elio gets a nosebleed. 

while this may SOUND like your run-of-the-mill M/M steamy summer romance novel that you can buy for 99p on kindle books, it is ACTUALLY an incredible TOUR-DE-FORCE work of ART written by André Aciman, a PROFESSOR OF LITERARY THEORY, which made THE NEW YORK TIMES, PUBLISHER’S WEEKLY, WASHINGTON POST and CHICAGO TRIBUNE’S Books of the Year lists when it was published and ABOUT WHICH the FOLLOWING PHRASES were used: ‘an effortless and unaffected erudition; a brutal, rigorous mastery of language’! ‘Brave, acute, elated, naked, brutal, tender, humane and beautiful’! ‘Few novels since Proust’s In Search of Lost Time are this adept at capturing the nuances of human emotion’! ‘The beauty of Aciman’s writing and the purity of his passions should place this extraordinary first novel within the canon of great romantic love stories’! ‘Exquisite’! ‘Superb’! ‘Extraordinary’! (not to mention that I have read it once a year since first reading it in 2014 and now own three copies because I keep discovering it in secondhand bookshops and am unable to leave it behind. don’t trust the NYT. trust me.)

and NOT ONLY is A Movie being made, it is a movie directed by RESPECTED DIRECTOR LUCA GUADAGNINO, co-written by JAMES IVORY – of MERCHANT-IVORY PRODUCTIONS, director of such screen gems as Howards End, A Room With a View, The Remains of the Day and fucking MAURICE – starring TIMOTHEE CHALAMET (of being good on stage) and ARMIE HAMMER (of ‘I’m 6′5″, 220 and there’s two of me!’), ACTUAL WELL-KNOWN ACTORS, premiering at SUNDANCE FILM FESTIVAL (because it’s a [reverential pause] FILM, not just a MOVIE), and FEATURING ORIGINAL SONGS WRITTEN AND PERFORMED BY SUFJAN STEVENS!!! WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON!!! I LITERALLY COULD NOT HAVE HAND-PICKED A BETTER COMBINATION OF THINGS!!!

yesterday it got bought by Sony Pictures Classics, which means a) world-wide distribution, and b) actual human beings have now seen it with their eyes. one of those #blest and chosen individuals said this: “Visually rich, stunning, deeply emotional and sensual, Call Me By Your Name confirms Luca Guadagnino as one of the world’s master filmmakers. It will be a privilege to bring the movie to audiences around the world.”

tl;dr in conclusion, Timothee Chalamet is going to fuck a peach and Armie Hammer is going to eat it while Sufjan Stevens sings about Jesus and being gay in the background and then, because that’s not enough, everyone at Sundance is going to give it a goddamn fucking standing ovation.

In your werewolf au, after howard dies does tony get out his ugly sausage picture when he misses his dad because his dad loved the picture so much?

I would like to say yes because that’s an adorable image

But Howard loved literally every picture of Tony ever taken except for that unfortunate summer when booty shorts and crop tops were in style. Not that Tony didn’t look good in them, but Howard can only consider murdering so many people for perving on his son before he gets tired.

Ironpanther “Okay wait. Can we stop joking around like we’d ever actually date? It’s really starting to hurt…" Your ironpanther fics give me liiiife.

Sorry this has sat here so long!

Consider this a modern no-powers AU of… some sort….

—-

Tony had known T’Challa since he was four years old.

When he built the engine and all the reporters had come to talk to Howard, and take Tony’s picture, T’Chaka had also shown up to… well, Tony supposed it was congratulate Howard or something.

What he remembered most - besides learning already how much he hated reporters - was T’Challa. He was younger than Tony by almost two years, but Howard had pulled Tony aside to hiss that he had better be nice because T’Challa was a prince.

Little idea nugget I had the other day~ Bucky loved Peggy first.

omg i spent such a long time thinking about this and now you got me shipping them thanks anon as if i wasnt already in rarepair heLL HERE WE GO

  • peggy was a liasion from the british government to help the SSR, and she was serving under colonel phillips. after project rebirth phillips was assigned to take the SSR to europe to fight hydra and he made peggy and howard a part of his staff. so peggy goes to europe, leaving steve rogers behind in america for his uso tour. steve rogers, the skinny boy from brooklyn who looked at her and saw something worth looking at. steve rogers, whose face she pictures, the same now even with a different body, with his twinkling blue eyes and serious mouth, his artist hands. she wonders if she’ll see him again, now that the rest of the world has its hands on him. and she finds herself hoping she she does - steve, so sincere and the kind of good that can’t help itself, smiling at her sweetly and making her feel warm all over. but then he’s gone and peggy has her orders and he says “until next time, agent carter,” and she finds herself eagerly awaiting for next time.
  • peggy finds herself in europe with the 107th. its early 1943 and she’s surrounded by all these men who either look at her like an ice lolly or something they scraped off from under their shoe and most of them have tried hitting on her with little to no success.
  • at some point phillips starts working with the higher ranking officers and thats when she meets seargent barnes, who’d only been on the front for a few months or so but had passed his training at camp mccoy in wyoming with flying colours and was supposed to be the best shot of the entire 107th
  • and he’s so polite and he’s all schoolboy charm and the perfect manners of a boy raised by harsh, strong women who’d whack him if he gave them lip and he literally kisses her hand when he introduces himself and she raises her eyebrows and that smug grin on his face really grounds her nerves but she finds herself smiling back at him if only for a moment, and she gives him a sharp dismissal and he winks as he goes back to his duties
  • she’s met his gaze around the base a couple of times, or seen him showing off or trying to impress her, but they havent really been given any assignment together yet and one night he marches right up to her with a few of his men flanking his side who look thoroughly terrified of her and he’s a little tipsy but still with that boyish grin as he spouts some rehearsed bullshit in her ear so only she can hear about how the nazis will never get him but he might just die if he never knows the touch of a woman like her, agent carter, and she snorts and bids him goodnight and he watches her leave with this dopey expression on his face like she’s just paid him the highest honour and when she passes his other men on the way out she tells them they ought to have their eager little puppy desexed before he starts humping the furniture.
  • she gets more assignments with the 107th and starts seeing more of him. he flirts and teases and pulls on her curls and she’ll ignore him or tell him off all the while hiding her tiny smile behind her hand and when she catches him looking at her, the tips of his ears turn bright red and she cant deny that he’s a very charming sort of person even if he probably knows it.
  • the first time she lets him kiss her, he’s so excited that the kiss is kinda sloppy and he stops and says “wait, wait, i can do better than that,” and she must admit, barnes is as good a kisser as he is a marksman. bucky doesn’t stop grinning for a week.
  • peggy likes him, she does. he’s funny and bashful and absolutely worships her, and maybe some nights his warm, rushed hands can chase the fear and loneliness away and she can forget where they are, but at the end of the day, she still thinks about skinny little steve rogers and his softspoken sincerity all the time, and barnes is just a boy and she doesn’t want to get attached - theres a high turnover rate for men in his position and she thinks of all the men she’s already lost to this war and she’s happy to indulge herself with a few small trysts but she can’t let herself feel more for him than this.
  • but bucky’s never really thought like that - bucky’s all about living in the moment and grabbing life by the balls, do first, think about the consequences later. and now he’s in the middle of this miserable war with a crush on his colonel’s right hand woman and she’s beautiful and she’s whip smart and can do ten times the push ups he can and he’s just so in awe of her and any time of day she gives him feels like a blessing. he knows she keeps him at a distance - she’s always short and brisk with him, and she never really tells him anything about herself no matter how often he asks, but he understands, and he doesn’t really mind - he just counts himself lucky a woman like agent carter seems the slightest bit interested in him, just a dock hand from brooklyn with a smart mouth.
  • and bucky’s such a little shit like peggy gets shot in the leg one day in the field and and bucky whips out a thread and needle and just sort of gives her this apologetic smile and says “this is gonna hurt” and she’s like “no, you’re not touching my leg, where’s the doctor” and he’s like “a couple miles away, but my ma taught me how to sew real good so you’re in good hands” and that smile she finds so charming is starting to look infuriating and she concentrates on his face while he works, furrowed brow in concentration and covered in dirt but still devastatingly handsome and when he’s done, he grins at her like he’s just won a medal and there isn’t a rain of bullets around them and he says, “there you go carter, perfect. pins look good as new..” and she really wants to slap that grin off his stupid lovely face and she just seethes our through gritted teeth “you are impossible” and he just shrugs his shoulders because she’s told him this a thousand times before and responds in a matching tone “and you are gorgeous” and then she really does slap him
  • and then the 107th are sent off to azzano and peggy’s been saying goodbye to all these men for months every time they leave on assignment, she’s been saying goodbye to bucky for months and never expecting him to ever come back but he always does except this time he doesn’t and it stings a lot more than she thought it would
  • whats left of the 107th come back to base and give intel on how many died and how many were captured and eventually peggy has to help phillips with the paperwork of marking soldiers who are MIA or KIA and she feels her heart drop through her stomach as she marks down sgt.james barnes
  • and then one day steve rogers rolls into camp and she was always a little stuck on steve, and he’s asking phillips in his tent about his best friend bucky, and it suddenly clicks and she decides to help steve get to austria because steve was meant for more than being a dancing monkey, and steve was meant to lead them towards victory in this war, and steve so desperately wants to get his friend back with a desperation she’s never seen before and maybe a tiny little part of her hopes that seargent barnes is ok, and she wants to help steve, and she wants to do something good, and she wants to contribute, and she never agreed with leaving all these captive soldiers in azzano and she so desperately wanted to help these poor men she’d spent the last few months with who’d been abandoned by their generals, so she’s ready to go and steve smiles at her like she’s the sun, and then he disappears off the helicopter and into the snow and peggy had never been one for religion but she finds herself praying he comes back to her.
  • when steve comes back, he is radiant with victory, all the kindness and selflessness and loyalty of the inside finally reflected on the outside and she’s so proud and deliriously happy to see him and to see all the soldiers alive, sickly and broken but alive, and so happy to have been a part of something good, something that meant something, and she wants to throw her arms around steve and kiss him senseless and she marches right up to him and looks at him, all bravery and bright eyes and her perfect match, says “you’re late,” and he quips bright back “couldn’t call my ride,” and he’s beautiful, beautiful like he was the first time she ever saw him, but bucky’s standing just behind him looking skinny and empty and destroyed, watching peggy look at steve in a way she never looked at him
  • and bucky, he’d spent the last few months strapped to a table wishing that he’d just die only to have his skinny, small best friend steve rogers who is neither of which anymore storm the building and save his life, and he gets back to camp and sees peggy, who he hasn’t seen in months, looking at steve like he hung the moon in the sky and in that moment he doesn’t know if he’s more proud or more hurt, and he yells “lets hear it for captain america" and he cant help thinking about how it was always him that had to look after steve and how steve and his kindness and loyalty was always something he could keep to himself in a way but now, everyone sees him, everyone is proud of him, and bucky’s disappeared into the crowd, steve doesn’t belong to bucky anymore, he’s too big for him now, and even peggy is just looking straight through him as if he doesn’t even exist. he didnt even know they knew each other
  • and then he makes a pass at peggy right in front of steve at the bar because she looks so beautiful and he thinks, you know, im still me, i feel okay right now, maybe i can still be that guy, but he’s practically aiming for the rejection because even before all this, peggy would never even bat an eyelash at him in front of the other men and that was their thing, sneaking around in tents and forests so why would now be any different? maybe because of what he went through, being captured, maybe she’d take pity on him and give him all her attention, but that’s not peggy and he knows that’s not peggy, she’s been in this war a lot longer than he has and she used to tell him “stop moping barnes, get to work!” and he’d pull on her curls and she’d bat his hands away with a grin but now it’s like he’s not even there, she’s looking at steve and talking about the right partner and he jealously thinks that steve is a horrible dancer and it’s bucky who was always the best, and he cant help himself when he mutters “i’m turning into you, its like a horrible dream,” but steve just laughs it off, laughing, says “maybe she’s got a friend,” but bucky knows that peggy was only friends with him and dum dum and a few other men anyway.
  • the three of them are in each other’s spheres for a year in a half with the howling commandos shutting down hydra bases. he and peggy are friendly and he stills flirts with her and pulls on her hair and she smacks his away and calls him infuriating but its just not the same, and bucky gets a bullet in his chest one day and peggy grins down at him and asks if anyone’s got any needle and thread, but steve’s got the medic and holds his hand the entire time.
  • and he wants to be happy for him because if anyone deserves peggy its steve and if anyone deserves steve its peggy, and he knows what the two of them had was fleeting and hopeless and neither really thought they’d survive very long anyway but
  • bucky loved her first, and nobody even knows
  • and steve tells bucky at night how gone he is for her, how he can’t stop thinking about her, how when this is all over he wants to marry her, and bucky knows that ever since he was captured by hydra theres been a bitterness inside him, a meanness that wasnt there before, a boy who was only used to being the shining light in his own life now forced into the shadows of all this pain and suffering that keeps him awake in the night, and he thinks he could tell steve  but he just smiles and slaps his shoulder and says “i know, stevie, i know.” he swallows his spite. he doesn’t say, “but i wanted her first.” he doesn’t say, “but i wanted her longer.” he doesn’t say how peggy used to lecture him when he tried to turn on the charm or how she’d tell him to “stop whining or i’ll give you something to whine about” or how she only called him ‘barnes’ because “bucky is a child’s name” (and yet she calls steve by his first name) and she once held his hand in the back of a van in france and told him if they survived this she was going to smack him until he saw stars. he doesn’t say any of that. because none of it ever meant anything. at least, it wasn’t supposed to. she’s steve’s girl, probably always was, and to be honest, she was never really his at all. so bucky just says, “i know.”
  • When bucky died, the first thing peggy did was find steve. she held his hand while he wept, poured him glasses of the alcohol that wouldn’t get him drunk and stroked his hair. after an hour, she told him to get his act together - barnes would want his decision respected. she knew that. and steve knew that. “this war isn’t over steve. let’s win it for him,” she whispered, and he nodded miserably, pressing his lips to her knuckles.
  • peggy spent that whole night crying. when the sun rose, she got dressed, put on her lipstick and reported for duty. There’s a war on - she’s too busy to mourn.
  • years later, when peggy started SHIELD, she had James ‘Bucky’ Barnes as the first named engraved on the wall of valour. this was his legacy, that boy with the bashful smile. james barnes, purple heart.

Picturing Howard lurking in the corner just waiting to defend his precious boy gives me life.

I mean he wasn’t lurking in the corner but he does have a habit of only ever being ten feet away from Tony at these things and also keeping half an ear on him. Tony doesn’t notice because Howard is very good at looking occupied in conversation when Tony turns to look at him. (Maria says he needs to let Tony fight his own battles but until Tony is big enough to clothesline a senator Howard will gladly do it for him.)

okay but consider guys:

howard falling for peggy, “that feisty ssr girl” before steve came in, and making his usual flirty comments in her direction. but peggy just rolling her eyes

howard backing off when steve comes into the picture like the good pal he is

howard stuck with these feelings that wont go away but resolving that if nothing else theyre still going to be friends because peggy is the best

howard pushing his own feelings down when they lose steve so he can be there for peggy and help her through it

howard trying to kiss peggy once theyve won the war, because he’s hyped up and everything is going so great so why not

howard respecting the fact that peggy turned him down

howard showering her in gifts after the war, and being like here have some scotch, i bought this car cause it matched your eyes, move into my house, borrow my butler, help found a secret organization with me.

howard searching for steve for so long for her

Imagine you and Tony are looking through some old photos and you come across one of Howard and you say he’s really hot and Tony isn’t really pleased about it.

——— Request for anon ———

“I can’t believe you’re throwing all these old pictures away,” you sigh as you flip through Howard Stark’s glory days recorded on paper. Tony shrugs, tossing papers from an old filing box into the trash.

“I’ve already put them in Jarvis’ system. If I’m ever dying for a nostalgia kick, I’ll just have Jarvis pull them up for me,” Tony looks over, watching as you study a small photo.

“You know, your dad was pretty hot when he was younger,” eyes flickering up from the photo, you smirk at Tony’s disgusted look, “Had to get your good looks from somewhere, I guess.”

Future Looks Good

Bucky brought her in to his office, shut the door and offered her some water. “We are a separate division from the normal government at SHIELD. We specialize in counterintelligence and we need to get into a party you will attending. Now we could send our agent in alone but it would less suspicious if he was on your arm. I think you’ve heard of Howard Stark.” Bucky said, putting his picture down on the table. “If you agree, you will go on a few dates with him, take him to this event and then you are off the hook. He wanted me to mention that he is an excellent dancer to sweeten the deal. Do you have any questions or concerns you’d like to address before you decide?”
