I’m going to start a “Crotchety Old Ladies of Tumblr” Club. Weekly meetings consist of us hanging around without make-up, eating leftover birthday cake for breakfast, and trying to one-up each other with ridiculous fanfic ideas.

I would like to join. I come with my own lack of makeup.

((cracks knuckles))

Ridiculous fanfic ideas?  This sounds like my kind of club.

DJ’s Bad Day (Is Worse for Steve)

((a bit of the start of something, because I’m trying to write and it’s not going well, so please, have this. 8)  Warnings for injury, specifically child injury and upcoming parental angst.))

“Hey, you crazy kids. What’s the good word?” Clint said, ambling through the door to the playroom. “Cap, we’ve-”

He stopped, because DJ came scrambling across the floor, an unearthly shriek echoing in his wake. Steve, a step behind him, snagged him by the back of the shirt, dragging him to a stop. DJ twisted in his grip, leaning his body against the fabric of his shirt, howling like a banshee.

“The good word,” Steve said, his voice tired, “appears to be ‘loud.’”

Clint’s eyebrows arched. “Yeah, I got that. Everything okay, Cap?”

“He’s in a mood today,” Steve said, and there was the thinnest note of strain to his voice, of frustration and anger. He looked tired when he looked at Clint, but he scooped DJ off of his feet. DJ kicked at him, a fresh howl working its way to a feverish pitch. Steve’s eyes squeezed shut. “Deej-”

DJ swung a hand at him, and Steve set him back on his feet, crouching down. “Don’t hit,” he said. “You know better than that. We don’t hurt people, even if we’re feeling bad. Right?”

DJ’s lower lip wobbled, but he nodded.

“Good boy.” Steve kissed his forehead and let him go. DJ plodded across the room, flopping into the pile of pillows that formed his reading corner. He picked up a big picture book, seemingly at random, and hunched over it.

“Not a good day, huh?” Clint asked.

Anonymous asked: Can you give us more insight into the friendship of James Rhodes and Clint Barton? That would be soo helpful and also

greatmoustachesploosh:

Okay

So, their relationship really began at the start of the West Coast Avengers.  This team was put together at a time when Tony Stark was dealing with his alcoholism and Rhodey was Marvel’s Iron Man.  Hawkeye and Mockingbird start to put together their own Avengers team.  And the team starts to come together with Rhodey joining in.  but at this time nobody knows Rhodey is Iron Man.

well, as this team starts to do some work together, and Hawkeye thinks he’s working with the same Iron Man he’s always worked with, is surprised when a frustrated Rhodey takes off his helmet.  Clint is initially upset until Rhodey gives him the what for. 

image

image

this is basically the moment they became frands.  Hawkeye knowing in this moment that Rhodey is a stand up guy and a badass hero, and also somebody he can relate to.  and Rhodey knowing that Clint will have his back from this point on, that Clint is a hero and man he can trust.  All this despite that rocky start.  They just really bonded in this moment and never really looked back.  

Then there’s some other West Coat Avengers stuff that I don’t freaking have readily available and its been so long since i read so awaaaaa

But its shown throughout a few stories that Clint is somebody Rhodey turns to when he needs help. When he needs advice.  When he needs a friend.  And this is really important, because Rhodey really doesn’t have that many friends.  So the bond Clint and Rhodey have is strong. For Rhodey to specifically chase Clint down just to have a conversation because Rhodey’s scared or worried or something.  That’s big.  It’s also important to note, that when Rhodey does this, Clint basically drops everything to sit down and talk with Rhodey.

image

image

and then there’s the times that Clint goes to a lot of trouble himself just to find Rhodey to talk it out.  Because he hears Rhodey might being have a tough time and he goes immediately to him.

image

image

And not to mention Clint’s complete and utter trust in Rhodey as a person, as a man, as a hero.  That if Rhodey is doing something, its the right thing to do.

image

image

you know and then the hugging and barbeques and the piggy back rides and the badass team ups

image

image

image

image

image

i don’t know if this is very insightful and i know i’m missing moments, but i don’t know if i could be more eloquent atm.  i just love them so much and i i want everybody to read their adorable interactions.

rhodey/clint is so important.

I have the run where Rhodey is like, “I need help. I need solid advice. I need guidance. … Where’s Clint Barton?” And it was the only time I remember going, “no, Rhodey, baby, NO. DON’T- NOOOOO.”

the-world-is-a-corner reblogged your post maplerosekisses said:So, now that… and added:

The real question is: has Botverse!Steve seen the videos of Tony testing the armor when he built it?

Cause we all saw how THAT one went.

Yes.  Yes, he has.  It went just about as well in this verse.

grumpycakes replied to your post: maplerosekisses said:So, now that…

AND WHO WANTS TO GUESS HE GETS PERIPHERALLY MAD AT TONY IF ONLY CAUSE HE REMEMBERS THOSE TAPES. Was him messing around in the suit or a prototype given Tony’s approval? *betting not*

No.  Tony did not give permission for this particular test.  Not at all.  Not even a little bit.

He’s not sure if the kid is TRYING to kill him, or if that’s just a natural part of parenting.

justpale replied to your post:So, now that DJ is big enough to be stealing Clint and Tony’s clothes, do you think his parents would allow him to pilot one of Tony’s suits? 

But wouldn’t Tony have Jarvis lock DJ out of the suits?

The full suits?  Sure.  But the setup I’m talking about, bits and pieces of salvaged components, repaired circuits and power relays, that’s harder to keep him out of.

Listen, when my father and his younger brother were twelve and eight years old respectively, they realized that they if they rolled their father’s VW Bug to the end of the driveway before starting it, instead of taking their bikes to do their morning paper delivery, they could just drive.

They stole my grandparent’s car every morning for a year and a half before they approached a stop sign and a cop car rolled up next to them.  The cop was the father of a friend, who waved cheerfully to them and went on his way.  To this day, my father believes that it didn’t occur to the guy that they were not nearly old enough to be driving.
What I’m saying is, you can hide the keys to the cars, but kids are going to find a way to play with their parents toys and Jarvis has proved to be utter RUBBISH at keeping DJ from doing exactly what he wants to do anyway.
I feel so bad for Jarvis most of the time. Poor helpless AI.

maplerosekisses asked: So, now that DJ is big enough to be stealing Clint and Tony's clothes, do you think his parents would allow him to pilot one of Tony's suits? (purely for visiting Lucy when she goes back home, of course. They're not letting him ANYWHERE near a battle. But it would be a pretty efficient way for him to see her and I'm sure DJ knows all about the suits and how they work)

Ooooooooh who wants to read the first time that Steve catches DJ in one of the suits?  Because wow, that would go so very badly.

The first time he gets to the workshop, and DJ’s there, boots and gauntlets, the sort of getup that Tony made when he was coming up with the idea of the suit, when he was learning how to control the repulsors, the same experiments that Dummy watched, fire extinguisher at the ready.

That echo of Tony’s face, Tony’s form, Tony’s complete lack of self-preservation, and the armor might be Tony’s, but DJ had helped him build it, build and rebuild and he knows the armor the way no other person on earth does.  And Steve knows it’s only a matter of time before the idea occurs to others, to Fury and a host of other chess masters, that as Tony ages, here’s a replacement that has his skill and his grace and his technical brilliance.  The armor doesn’t have to die with Tony, or even Rhodey, there is another choice.

The first time Steve catches DJ in the act of flying, catches him hopping and twisting and landing, with that fist down position of Tony’s, and Steve has seen that armor bleed, he has seen it bleed so many times.

The first time is not good.

i’m apparently dealing with this week by rereading scifigrl47's avengers fic.

yes.

all of it.

This is… Not a good idea.

You will die.  Pretty sure this stuff has a maximum safe dose, and it’s two, three stories max, maybe five if they’re casefiles.  If you try to mainline the whole of the Botverse all at once, I’m pretty sure you won’t make it.

I need to have paperwork drawn up holding me harmless in the case of mental damage from overexposure.  8)

iamshadow21 asked: Hi, long time reader, fan, and one-time remixer. :) I have a question about Lucy in Fairy Tales and Clockwork Hearts. I'm sorry if someone's asked this before. (I looked at the Fic FAQ and skimmed through all the comments on the fic, yes all 21 pages, and didn't see any mention of this.) Anyway, what I want to know is, is the Lucy in Tales of the Bots the same Lucy as in Far Better Things Ahead? Because I didn't realise until today that they were both called Lucy.

And the SciFiGrl47 No-Prize goes to you. 8)

Yes.  Lucy was the girl who took care of the bots in the IM3 aftermath fic, which is, of course, a different timeline/verse.

She changed some, and she’s a bit younger here, but I think she still likes Dummy. 8)

!!!! I have so much affection for that evil potatoface with legs. where’d you find that mug?

It was a gift! Sci gave it to me, she apparently found it on clearance somewhere. This way it’s always on display and I don’t have to wash the inside of it, which is a bit of a devil to get clean. 

Not where I got it from, but it’s still in stock here:

Sci’s Fault

copperbadge:

Eventually I’m going to explain how this is all scifigrl47's fault that I wrote the Steve Rogers Captain Cockblock fic, but until the fic is posted you'll just have to make do with Banter.

"Did they teach you about where babies come from in the forties?" Tony asked, accepting a plastic fork and stuffing his mouth with pasta.

"No, but everyone in the oughts seems determined to share," Steve said, straight-faced, and Tony choked on his food, trying not to laugh.

"No joking while I’m swallowing," he said, and Steve narrowed his eyes.

"Kid wasn’t your type, anyhow, he seemed flighty," Steve said.

"He wasn’t flighty, you saw him for all of two minutes, and since when do you have an opinion on my bed partners?"

"You have bed partners?" Steve asked.

"Oh my God, I’m telling everyone Steve Rogers throws the meanest shade. That was cutting, Rogers." Tony clutched his chest. Steve laughed.

"Even if you don’t want to settle down, you need someone stable," he said, poking at his own food, rolling a meatball around. Tony darted his fork out and stole it.

"Is this a prelude to matchmaking?" Tony asked, when Steve glared at him.

"Why, would that upset you?" Steve asked.

"No, I’m striking out lately," Tony said.

"That’s too bad," Steve replied sympathetically.

"So if you know of someone, hook me the hell up."

"I’ll keep that in mind. Don’t tell Natasha, though," Steve added. "She’s relentless. I finally went out with this lady she recommended, she had a lip piercing, I don’t even know…"

Oh god. I mean, oh, God. Steve in the Joseph Gordon Levitt role, and Bucky in the Heath Ledger one, and Nat as the angry, vicious older sibling and Tony as the popular, gleeful younger one, and Clint as the goofy, motor mouthed friend with the bad advice and the scooter (I think? It’s been a while since I’ve seen this movie) and Fury as the bad tempered father and Phil as the guidance counselor writing the romance novel. I think I’ve gone too far with this, and I don’t care.

Does that mean Loki is the pretty boy model who slept with Nat and now wants to hook up with Tony at the prom?

YES. YES IT DAMN WELL DOES.
