i’ve noticed that too!!! its like you can have a full course meal of fic, start off with a light drabble or 1k, settle in for some heavy angst and then palate cleanse with some fluff or healing for dessert
It’s so neatly organized too! You want some angst, just pop over to the Steve/Bucky recs. Feeling blue now and need a pick-me-up? Have no fear! Sam exists!
… You are Moss from the IT crowd and I never knew…
At least Moss had the excuse of already being at his computer. I left the fire to go find mine.
cinquespotted asked: re: the kitchen knives, i feel like this is the time to remind you / your new followers of the time you set a pot on fire and then instead of putting it out, googled "how you stop flambe" xx
Ah, yes. Everyone who follows me should be warned. This is a factual thing, this story. I once set a pot on fire, panicked, left the room, and googled “how you stop flambe.”
Thankfully, I have a roommate who already knew the answer and did science things like “cut off oxygen with pot lid” and “douse with wet towel” and whatnot. Very fancy science.
sarahfletcher13 asked: Its nice to follow someone equally capable of being an idiot. Today I managed to cut open my finger (right on the tip where its most annoying, you know?) while making dinner for the THIRD time, All of them without noticing how, and this time I HADN'T EVEN GOT A KNIFE OUT OF THE DRAWER. To be honest I think this one was actually a paper cut from a Captain America comic, which is just...whatever, I despair.
Oh man, I get cut with kitchen knives alllll the time when I visit my dad because his knives are, you know, sharp like nice knives and mine are not because I am poor and can’t afford nice things like sharp knives. My uncle—who’s a bit paranoid—actually brought me a protective glove for using knives because I worried him so with all my band-aids.
tl;dr: knives are hard.
I love how CA:TWS fic seems to be falling into two flavors: (1) recovery is good and hope is here also steve will bang sam and vice versa and everything is healed by love and (2) nothing will ever be good again and bucky can’t really be a real boy now but pain pain pain also buttsex.
I’m not complaining. Not even a little bit.
