PSA: If an artist charges you a flat rate for a commission, tipping is definitely a thing you can do to even out the price if you think they should be charging more. Or it could just be a favor for the artist. Either way, it is always greatly appreciated.
I kind of love the idea of Steve being bi. Like, when he was younger, he’d see a guy and think he was good looking, but he’d just stamp that down or chalk it up to being an artist and finding beauty in everything. Then he meets Peggy and he really likes her so he thinks of himself as “fixed”.
When he wakes up in our time he stumbles into learning about the different kinds of genders and sexual orientations and it just hits him like “Oh. I guess that explains it.” And after New York when things settle in to something like a routine and he actually has a chance to look around and Natasha starts on her mission to set him up, he starts to really accept and become okay with being attracted to men and women.
One day when they’re heading out on a mission, Natasha brings up another woman from SHIELD and Steve just goes “What about that guy who works in reception?” and he says it casually, but he’s really sort of nervous because she’s the first person he’s told. Natasha just pauses for a beat and looks at him before shaking her head “Kevin? No, he’s got a terrible hair cut. You can do better.” And after that she starts including guys in the people she suggests to him.
“In the end, Captain America does not make the heroic sacrifice, thus further proving that Black Widow can handle the emotional weight of being a lead character. As if anyone could really forget the most quoted line in “The Avengers” — “I’ve got red in my ledger; I’d like to wipe it out” — it helps to have that line fresh in your mind when deconstructing what Widow does in the final act of what’s billed as a Captain America movie. Black Widow doesn’t wipe out the red in her ledger. No, she blasts her ledger out to the world, like it was the grisliest email forward of all time. We know from here heart to heart with Hawkeye that the shame she feels about what she’s done is real, and she hesitates when she realizes that taking down the bad guys means revealing her secrets. But she does it anyway, because she’s not just a spy anymore; she’s a super hero, and she makes a super hero’s sacrifice.”—
I didn’t even think about it at the time but yeah, Natasha being the one to reveal SHIELDS, and her own, secrets probably took more courage and self sacrifice for her than carjacking an alien in the middle of a galactic sized batte.
Imagine having braces during the apocalypse. no one can take your braces off. And you just have to accept that you’ll have braces forever.
i want a novel focused around a character with braces during the apocalypse and the entire plot of the story revolves around their search for an orthodontist who is still alive and they sort of accidentally save the world in the process
Fic where Steve doesn’t know Tony can speak French (because rich kids learn Latin and Greek) and starts mumbling things in French around Tony. At first it’s swear words or stupid little idioms. When Tony doesn’t let on that he understands, Steve starts speaking longer phrases—especially when Tony gets too into his science mode. Steve figures if he can’t understand what Tony’s saying, Tony shouldn’t be able to understand what he says. Two can play that game.
Sometimes I wish you would just shut up.
Do you even understand what you’re saying right now?
I don’t know what you’re saying but I sure like the way you say it.
Tony keeps on not letting on that he knows, until one morning he walks into the kitchen and Steve’s sitting there with his ridiculous huge breakfast, reading his newspaper. And Tony mumbles a greeting to him and Steve replies back
Good morning, beautiful. I wished you’d come over here and give me a kiss.
And that’s the story of how Steve finds out Tony can speak French. via a French kiss.
