Oh wow I’m posting this because I ship that friendship so hard.
"I couldn’t believe it…he let Tony’s dad, who blew up his own flying car, experiment on him. And drop him out of a plane into enemy territory so he could storm a Hydra facility. By himself. With no combat experience.”
"You think that’s bad? Tony went on television and invited a terrorist to attack our house!”
"But Steve crashed a plane filled with bombs into the arctic."
"Tony flew a nuclear weapon through a wormhole into another dimension."
"Back alley fights were nothing. 70 years on ice, Pepper. Brainwashed into becoming an assassin. Seriously, the shit I find myself in for following this guy."
"I was glowing, James. Lit up like a barbecue. I WAS GLOWING.”
This is even better! The two of them, having chronic headaches because of the idiots in their lives!
Comparing how high they fell while the love of their life failed to grab them… *too soon?*
OH NO YOU DIDN’T
*laughing my ass off*
"I fell off a train! A moving train! Captain America couldn’t reach a little further??? I knew I shouldn’t have done that mission, as soon as I remembered Coney Island.”
"Into fire, James. All the man does, day and night, is play with his army of super-suits, but does he have one there to grab me? No. I put up with his damned hobby for years and those stupid suits still couldn’t catch me.”
"And then, after my whole body repaired itself, I had said suits trying to kill me, by the way Jarvis, I’m never going to forgive you for that, and had to blow up the bad guy!”
"Nazis put a metal arm on me, and had to change a few of my bones to metal ones, so I wouldn’t break inside!"
*is it starting to look like “I’ve got the biggest”?*
rocksaltandroll I can see them both sitting on the couch getting SO drunk on vodka martinis and gesticulating wildly with every story they tell getting worse because their boys are both SO FUCKING STUPID
THEY TURN IT INTO A DRINKING GAME.
Clint is scoring them; whoever’s experience he judges to be the least traumatic has to do a shot.
Jane comes, in, sits down, and says, “Let me tell you about the giant indestructible robot-thing. And Thor sending away everyone who could help him fight, so that he could face it down on his own, with no weapons, in the middle of the street.”
Pepper and Bucky look at each other, shrug, and each take a shot without even checking with Clint.
At the end of one evening, everyone is sobbing, and Clint and Bucky just drink more because brainwashing sucks, man.
didipenny No it is NOT a romance - and it’s hilarious and I’m doing it I’m totally including it somewhere
Avengers Companions Drinking Game is going in a fic
I’m kinda in love with the Avengers Companions Drinking Game.
Female. Mid 20s. Major depression. Warning: I have psychopaths in my brain.
Wherein I blog about things that amuse me, or intrigue me, or resonate with me. Wherein I try not to involve politics, what I had for dinner, or morally objectionable material. This is not a guarantee that you will not be offended, but I'm honestly not trying to offend you. Probably. Anyway, most of this is fandom related, so if you were looking for something deep and philosophical and highbrow...what the hell made you think I fit the profile? Seriously.
If I don't reply to your ask, I'm not being bitchy, I'm friendly, I swear. Just really, really distractable...
I approve of this aesthetic.
Bounty hunting she shall go :D
This is genius at work
I am seriously SO impressed with the costume she’s put together here :D
SWEET MERCIFUL EMPEROR THIS IS AMAZING
If I built a dream house, it would be made of corners. Corners like these. Because corners are for snuggling in.

((SPOILERS FOR 2x15. FIX-IT FIC BECAUSE MY DENIAL RUNS DEEP))
There is a brief and terrifying moment where it seems like Luke is gone.
There are in fact, six moments in which he thinks he will have to go through this again, go through the pain like losing one of his limbs. The never-ending ache in his chest of losing his brother, all for a second time.
Jack Harkness, Irene Adler, Dean Winchester, and Tony Stark walk into a bar
the ending of this joke has been censored by the Universe itself
However, it is available on AO3
Vocally political and liberal Steve Rogers
Fox News has no idea how to handle it because he’s Captain America and he’s literally from the 40’s like how do that handle that
He refuses to go on half of the news shows because they lie
Mostly ends up on the Daily Show, the Colbert Report, and the Young Turks
Starts charities that focus on kids and the poor
Donations to veterans charities go through the roof
Treatment for PTSD in veterans suddenly gets addressed after he admits to being diagnosised with it
Steve Rogers starting a twitter specifically for linking people to horrible news stories and calling news stations out on their lies and scare tactics
Using his twitter to complain about the state of public news and how it should be a space of change and value and honesty for the American public, and how he’s so ashamed of it all
He accidentally becomes like public face for the new generation of politically savvy people
They make of shirts like WWCD “what would Cap do?”
Tony is thrilled and proud and hires of team of lawyers exclusively to handle the news stations screaming about Steve
Fox news gets slapped with so many libel fines and law suits
Going on a show and regretting it the moment an offensive question or comment comes up and decides he’s completely done and just tears the interviewer a new one. It goes viral.
The public face thing is just the start. It starts this whole new wave of people that shut down offensive shit during interviews and holding their own.
There is a short time period once he turns 35 where there is a rally cry of “Captain America for President” that he gracefully turns down.
But politicians starting courting him, trying to get him to publicly state that they support him because his influence is just so massive, and they keep getting shut down hard
Talks about growing up in the depression when people bring up financial issues - says things like “With all due respect, ma’am, what others may remember as being over 80 years ago was less then 5 ago to me. Things were supposed to get better. Those issues we thought we fixed were supposed to go away - we were supposed to work to a future where it was gone - and instead it seems to be worse then ever.”
And of course he’s a raging feminist and is absolutely appalled when Natasha tells him about rape statistics
Bruce takes a lot of time to fully educate him about the social and medical side of abortions, teaches him about the various birth defects and medical issues the mothers can face, shows him the demographic information of access and need, and Steve is horrified by that too
Then Tony walks him through gay rights and other LGBTQ issues, all of them helping him understand how sexuality can manifest differently and the difference between sex and gender identity
Steve just REAL FUCKIN DONE with everything.
Angrily stands in protest rallies and dares people to start something with peaceful protesters. Just DARES them.
Rolls his eyes at baby boomer articles about the newer generations. He’s heard that mess before. He’s done with it.
Understanding people have problems with medical bills, having been there himself.
Fucking standing up for single mothers becaUSE LIKE WHOA THAT’S HIS MOTHER YOU JUST DISSED.
Steve Rogers hating bullies. Hates that kids are actually KILLING THEMSELVES because of bullying and people are just “oh boys will be boys” about it and he’s just LIVID.
I would go into debt to read this comic. This is what Captain America should be. This is what America should be.
cries i want to embrace this post forever
Peaceful protests staying peaceful because when the cops try to start something it doesn’t matter how many of them there are, Steve’s there and he will shut them down, but more than that: Steve gets pepper sprayed. Steve gets chemical burns. Steve on shaky iphone video blind and disoriented and still using his body to protect others as the cops close in. And suddenly the heroes who stay back because they don’t want to get involved - because they shouldn’t use their powers ‘like that’ start showing up in droves.
Peter gumming up the smoke and pepper bombs before they go off. Thor becoming a one man blockade. Natasha working with organizers to help plan for escapes if things do go badly. Tony’s not only keeping Cap up to date - he’s putting considerable money behind the political candidates who will actually work to improve things, because we all know you need money to represent at the polls. They’re not there attacking the police - even if the officers are being assholes, they understand they have a job to do and often bad orders - but they will protect the protesters who have done nothing but show up.
And the more they do, the more heroes join in. Because it’s not just about using your powers against the mighty evil empire Strexx or taking down some guy calling himself the Boomerang. It’s about making sure you want to keep living in the world you keep saving.
