Imagine Loki is an Avenger already. You just joined the team as a new assassin, as a cousin of Black Widow. You and Loki don’t talk often, but you walked in on him reading in the middle of the night once. Thor needs to take you, Loki, Tony, and himself to Asgard, and when you’re about to go up, you grab onto Loki as protection.
Okay but what if in Teenage Dadvid au David comes home from retail work and is honest to god bone fucking tired and upset because of old ass people blaming him for something like chips being $1.99. He pays Gwen for watching Max and is holding his baby boy and Max just goes “D… Da… Da. Dada!”
AND IT INSTANTLY MAKES DAVID’S NIGHT. HIS FIRST WORD IS DADA. AFTER A SHITTY DAY AT WORK.
*(The title means “Thank you” in Korean. Shuka writes the words phonetically in katakana so that her Japanese readers can read it. I decided to do something similar and romanize it, rather than translate it.)
summary: Of all the reasons why Shiro had missed their date, time travel is the last thing Keith expects to hear. A Sheith fic, expanding on this. A fill for @blackpaladinweek, Day One: time/space.
Shiro comes Back a few hours later, stumbling through the door of his dorm room like he’s had a little too much to drink. Matt and Keith both leap up from where they’d been sitting - Matt in his desk chair, Keith on Shiro’s bunk - but Shiro waves them back down.
“Where this time?” Matt asks.
“Dinosaurs,” Shiro says, taking the bottle of water Matt hands him. Shiro uncaps it, drinks half of it in one go.
“Really?” Keith blurts.
Matt snorts. “No. Don’t believe him, Keith, there’s nothing prehistoric about our Shiro. He’s been saying ‘dinosaurs’ as long as I’ve known him.”
