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!


India was way more fun than stopping a crazy-ass nuclear scientist from starting WWIII should be.

My dad gave our 2 month old English bulldog puppy a taste of strawberry Popsicle today. This is true happiness.

… 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.

here’s how I think the leading lady MCU movies should happen:

  • obviously the Black Widow movie comes first, and it’s basically Scarlett Johansson as Natasha Romanoff versus Freddie Lounds Lara Jean Chorostecki as Yelena Belova and I don’t really care if they make Natasha her comic book age or not but some Bucky/Natasha backstory would be great thanks
  • next is a Captain Marvel movie in which Carol Danvers is an air force pilot who encounters alien technology that gives her superpowers, the movie addresses the misogyny women face in the armed forces and male-dominated spaces in general, she gets dishonorably discharged preferably for pissing off powerful men but probably for independently investigating the aforementioned alien technology and at the end Sharon Carter approaches her to talk about the Avengers Initiative, also the whole movie foreshadows the Kree invasion and Chewie is prominently featured
  • then She-Hulk, of course, in which Jennifer Walters is an assistant district attorney working on a high profile mob case and after she gets brutally attacked the hospital calls her cousin Bruce Banner to give her a blood transfusion, which he reluctantly does, and he sidekicks her while she cracks the case and destroys the mobsters and we get more backstory re: his abusive father and the root of his anger issues, the movie also addresses body image issues and at the end Jennifer decides to go green, literally, and after the credits we learn that the doctor who treated her was Michael Morbius, who injects himself with a serum he concocted using a sample of her blood taken after she miraculously healed because he thinks it’ll cure his porphyria, and this foreshadows the inevitable vampire-slaying team up with oodles of incredulity and pop culture references, also at some point Jennifer mentions her ex-boyfriend Luke Cage, because they’re making a Luke Cage tv series
  • they’re also making a Jessica Jones tv series so we’ll see how that goes, but I’d like it if they skipped the creepy Purple Man storyline and since we’re not actually going to get that Captain Marvel movie Carol Danvers should be in it and Chewie should be prominently featured
  • my kingdom for a Spider-Woman movie in which teenage Jessica Drew is released from HYDRA induced cryogenic stasis after SHIELD falls with one goal: to assassinate Nick Fury (this would ideally come on the heels of The Winter Soldier, obviously, but that is not the world in which we live) who flees to Tromsø and ends up hanging out with Thor, Jane and Darcy while Jessica escalates, and then of course he eventually apprehends her and takes her back to Stark Tower for deprogramming and rehabilitation and after he explains how he adopted the girl who tried to kill him Clint is just like “so I guess you made a different call”
  • also Jennifer Walters and Jessica Jones and Jessica Drew should all be WoC because as much as I love the ladies of the MCU they’re all white women and that should change
  • and I’m still bitter they didn’t make Janet van Dyne a founding member of the Avengers in the MCU and I know she’s going to be in Ant-Man but I’m not over it I’ll never be over it okay bye

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.

I seem to keep ending up with these bad boy characters. I don’t understand what’s going on. I walk the street in New York feeling like I’m Paul Rudd or something, but apparently no one sees else it that way.
