Imagine Steve in an AU where he adopts the Maximoff twins!
“So Friday tells me if you
want to stay, we have to get started, like yesterday
on your alphabet soup visa type applications because it can take a while and
like—Friday, can you explain it?” Tony
flashed a quick smile. “Pepper usually handles this sort of thing. Sorry.”
“Sure, boss. Their B
visas expire in approximately 4 months.
They’ll need to apply for an H1-B if they want to stay. Though, it’ll be a stretch. I’m not sure if the government will consider
what they do as ‘skilled labor’. Worth a
shot, and they’re familiar with Stark Industries sponsoring visas. We just have to hope they make it through the
Pietro quirked an
eyebrow. “And if we don’t?”
“-We can find a way. Right?”
Tony glanced towards the ceiling.
“We might be able to get you back on an L visa, if we can set you up in
our Sokovia branch. It’s mostly a
foundation, but it’d be just about all we have left as an option. A green card would be an option, too, but
it’d take some time. More than we have.”
After Sokovia, with the twins joining the Avengers in a not-so-low-profile move to the Tower, the government was asking a lot of questions about their allegiances and intent. Tony had lawyers for that, but they were still working on the best way to legally keep the Maximoffs in the country. They kept coming up short. Tony dropped heavily onto
a couch with a groan. “Uggghhh. This is why Pepper does all this. What the hell.”
“Or” Steve had come out of nowhere, dropping a folder onto the glass
table. “We do an adult adoption.”
“Can you do that?” Tony sat up straighter.
“I’ll have to look into it, boss.
But without any living parents, provided they consent, Captain Rogers
should be able to.”
Wanda smiled slyly. “Is that why you give Vision side-eye? Do you
disapprove of the relationship we may or may not have?”
Pietro laughed. “You do a great Disappointed Dad face. I will not call you Dad, though.”
Steve grinned. “I don’t expect you would.”
Wanda glanced over the
paperwork Steve had brought. “Ok. Yes.
But,” she pointed a finger at Steve, “only if you promise to stop
looking so suspicious of Viz.”
Steve held up his
hands. “Sorry, ok.”
Tony clapped his hands
together. “This is great. I’ve gotta go organize a party. Adoption shower. Something.
There’ll be cake. It’s gonna be
great. Friday! Friday, take care of Steve’s paperwork.”
After receiving an unsolicited opinion via guest review, I would like to reiterate something for myself and all other writers. You are not required to write what other people want. If you have something you want to write, do it. Write about an unpopular time, a rare pair, whatever. Do this for yourself first and the readers second. If you put it the other way around, it stops being fun and becomes a chore. Do it for you.
every time i hear "treat people how you wanna be treated" it is always ALWAYS said to marginalized groups and never at their oppressors. what a waste of a motherfucking platform, mark.
I want to tell a story here.
when I was very little, my mother focused all her moral teachings on being empathetic, focusing on things like, when someone would do something that hurt me, when I wanted to do something to get back at them, she’d stop me and ask me how I would feel if I had done that to them, and ask me to think about what their motives might have been (aka, did they hurt me on purpose or was it an accident) and her number one lesson was “treat others the way you want to be treated”.
which I stuck to for years, until one day I finally came home in tears and asked my mother if it was ok for me to defend myself.
what she didn’t know was that I had been being horribly bulled by all my classmates (being in special ed for my learning disabilities caused the kids to basically see me leave and then come back later and coloring when they were all doing work, not knowing I’d been given one of those ‘do the math problems, the answers are the key to color in the picture’ things) and the stress from their relentless teasing was affecting me physically.
my mother had never realized that even in the face of being bullied, I had continued to “treat them the way I wanted to be treated”, which in their eyes, had turned me into a doormat.
in the end, she apologized to me for doing that to me, and said to instead treat others the way I want to be treated until they show me they aren’t worthy of it.
if it’s true this actually ended some days ago, i wanted to make this as an official “end” knowing that everyone received their gifts. Some of you have thanked me for having doing this blurred friend project and i really appreciate all your kind words, but i think i must thank you all for being part of this and make this worked out! it was a wonderful experiencie, especially because i saw that all of you were really excited and committed to your respective blurred friends, so really thank you so much guys! also all of you’re creative and talented artists, i was so happy to see all those beautiful presents!
i was doubting about do another blurred friend and since there were two friends who couldn’t participate in this and this one was a success, finally i’m going to do another one. The first thing i thought was do a blurred friend for Halloween (because i’ve seen that most people of here love halloween), but that might be such a far date, so one friend reminded me Easter! That brought me a lot of ideas (for example, we can play with coloured eggs, in each egg there will be a challenge! like if you’re good at editing pictures, your challenges will be related to it, and other things like that!)
However, in this ocassion i want to count with your opinions, because in this activity there were also mishaps, so it would be better if this time we can do something when everybody’s free from school/work! So, please comment this or message me to tell me what do you think!
"orly? by all means, please do share what you’ve heard about me. I’d love to hear it." First and foremost you accused Mark of homophobia without any solid evadance.
one, you don’t need to quote my own reply back to me. it was a single sentence I wrote not two minuets ago. I didn’t forget.
two, “without solid evidence”? did you not see the many links I added to that post? it wasn’t just a baseless accusation. he very much has said and done homophobic things. just cause you disagree with me on what is and isn’t homophobia (which isn’t your place if you’re not homosexual, like I am) doesn’t make it without evidence.
and also, that’s not how one starts a “rumor”. rumors are “I heard that guy harassed a girl at a party once and called her a dyke!”.
what I did was say “I’ve been seeing things throughout his videos (linked) that are homophobic and make me uncomfortable, and I want to talk about that on my blog”
I keep swinging between manic and about to cry back to manic and back to about to cry and I think my friends are worried and I keep telling them I'm okay but I don't think they're convinced? lol I wish I was a robot then I'd have an off switch. Do... do you have an off button Saeran? Also, Saeyoung!!! Do those goggles mean you can fly?
Saeyoung: Oh no, oh no! I hope you’re feeling alright!
Guess who’s going at it again? Guess who overanalyses a rather minor character of the Kingsglaive movie? Yesssss, it’s me! Welcome to a totally exaggerated analysis of Tredd’s character and appearances in the movie Kingsglaive! I’d like to thank @thebulletsofmusicblues, @tales-from-insomnia and @vivicogitator for their additions to the post!
“Cocksure and cutthroat, Tredd never shies away
from a fight, and rarely loses.”
Will I ever not be filled with sadness that you are all the equivalent of houies but with the obvious Louis over harry mind set that you give Louis benefit of the doubt & question things but immediately jump on harry and say well that's most likely facts and I'll hate him (even if you already do evident by your lack of defending him when need to and telling him to get better fans as if you aren't) you all have the houie mindset, just that you guys are all Louis is better we aren't supporting H.
Almost there! Answering the so-asked question of what happENS WITH VIKTOR’S HAIRCOLOR- Well, it gets just a bit darker because of aesthetic purposes ★⌒(●ゝω・)ｂAlso gave him a proper mirror-slashed haircut for the moment!
(Diego on his birthday) It’s horrible. It’s been traumatic. It took me awhile to understand that there was another kid that was born on the 25th that was much more celebrated than me. Yeah, it was sad. Everyone was like either hangover or getting ready for New Year’s Eve but never really actually celebrating me. It was like, “Hey! I’m here!” “Yeah, we know whatever.”
