Lies your brain tells you: You’re almost done! Just one more scene!
—-Every writer, ever
Oh hey, there is a scene that I forgot in ‘Oops’. Yeah, this just got lengthened by 20k or so. If it gets divided into two separate stories, I don’t know yet.
If a woman dared wear a shirt that said:
I like my bronies the way I like my coffee, I don’t like coffee.
There’d be a queue of sexually explicit threats about how dare I hate on anyone with a penis, and they don’t care if I’ve somehow narrowed down the types of people with penises to a smaller group *I* personally have defined as people I perceived as pooping all over a fandom.
And that’s why it’s sexism, among about 800000 other reasons. And it’s not goddamned censorship if you say something full of misogyny and someone (or several someones) calls you on it.
p.s. In general, I’m against proscribing how one may or may not participate in a fandom, there’s also a difference between a large group of people doing things that JUST DON’T INTEREST YOU and a large group of people perpetuating a system of sexual aggression meant to oppress any woman that gets near their toys.
Oops (when did we start gay dating?!!?) is 17 words shy of 40k. And I’ve still got 3 - 4 scenes (THAT I KNOW OF, SOMTIMES SCENES HIDE BEHIND THE BUSHES AND AMBUSH ME OKAY?) left to go. PLUS epilogue.
*weeps tiny, perfect, crystal tears*
It started with the thought that Marvel Studios probably cast their movies by asking previous cast members if they knew anyone who needed work. It snowballed when I hit IMDb. And it got out of hand when allecto joined up. The net result? 52 MCU actors (and three directors), joined through non Marvel movies. Zoomable at bubbl.us.
Awesome, but Clark Gregg was an old neighbor of Iron Man’s director. So while he’s connected to BW, his real connection is Happy Hogan. /anon info drop!

this is almost as fun as ‘find the vegan’
we are not entertainment clowns. we simply eat healthy. go back to burger king.

If you haven’t figured out that tumblr requires no real world name verification and therefore no CC age verification and thus you can just LIE (for gods sake) you probably can’t handle tumblr anyway.
Phil: This is why I said it was a bad idea to put Clint in with the fire fighters.
Fury: Shut up.
I’ve actually managed a bit of work on several things!
1. Untitled - Working title: Oops
Briefly, Phil thinks about seeking Clint out, but he just doesn’t have the energy to even begin that let alone explain why, so he shuffles to his billet and lets himself inside. The light is already on and hope flares inside of him as he takes in every inch of his room. On his desk is a covered tray, in the corner is a go bag and on the bed is the most beautiful sight of all, Clint Barton smiling shyly.
“Hi,” Phil says, stopped in his tracks, it’s an effort to remember to close the door behind him.
“Hi,” Clint says back, already levering himself off the bed and crossing the room in long, quick strides.
Phil is worried it will be awkward right up until it isn’t and their arms slide around one another easily and without a single hitch and they pull each other close, a full body press and Phil burrows his nose into Clint’s neck and breaths deep.
2. Untitled - Working Title: Smooshed Coulson
In his ear, there was a quiet click of a line opening, thank god, “h—” the h required too much push from the diaphragm, his entire side burned. “A… agent…” too many syllables. He frantically searched for something, anything to say— oh. Yes. “…clint.” He rasped hoping the mic would catch it. “…clint.”
Silence. For far too long.
“PHIL!” Clint’s voice clicked in, staticky and far away, but that was all they needed to find him, a single connection, especially if they were in S and R mode.
“…clint…” he said again as the pain welled up, relief hadn’t done his body any good, he was fading out fast. “… …clint.”
3. Untitled - Working Title: Clint is dating!
Still, when he’d found Barton in the break room, paused absently near the coffee maker, a slight smile on his face, Phil knew something had changed and he was happy for Barton, very happy, actually that level of happy should have been an early warning sign, but that was getting ahead of it.
“She said yes?” Phil asked quietly, slipping in next to Barton to grab his own cup of coffee.
Barton jumped, barely, but still, and then flashed Phil a look that said, in rapid succession, shock, surprise, fear and then embarrassment. Finally settling on quietly pleased. “Yeah.”
“Good,” Phil said, careful to show Barton his smile and then bumped their elbows in companionship, “I’m glad.”
Barton blinked and then ducked his head. “Yeah, me too.”
Phil should have seen the strong possibility that it would burn hot and then crash hard.
Can I just headcanon that Clint Barton really likes jackets.
Like, he has a hoard of them.
In his closet, on his floor, in the bathroom, even on his bed.
Most of them are leather and studded.
AND BUCKLES. LOTS OF BUCKLES.
This phrasing in particular makes me think that my theory has some credence, they’re going to reconstitute as SWORD, no longer just the last line of defense.
"But Coulson’s actions towards May are okay because he’s only human and he’s just had his whole world ripped out from under his feet. He’s been through so much!"
You’re conveniently forgetting that May also worked for SHIELD. She was working for HYDRA as much as Coulson was. She cared about…
Nope, I don’t expect that from either one of them. They’re both wrapped up in their own trauma and it’s hard to get past that emotionally. Given this particular situation no one should be telling anyone “this is how you’re supposed to feel” or “this is how you’re supposed to act”. It’s an extreme situation and trust has been fractured in the worst possible way.
I agree and I think what this poster’s interpretation leaves out is that these actions have all happened within a 48 - 72 hour window with little to no downtime that wasn’t spent patching up wounds or fixing equipment. When was this reflection time supposed to happen? Coulson hasn’t stopped moving, hasn’t stopped planning (and with good reason, personal and otherwise) so no amount of calm conversation with him about his actions are gonna get anywhere, as we saw when the various attempts were made. Is he too angry at May? I don’t know? Is he lashing out too much? Probably b/c she’s the most accessible betrayal at hand, so yeah he’s probably transferring some anger, but I don’t think we should treat this like he’s been doing this for weeks or months. Yeah it’s 3 eps in, but those are barely a few days. I’m not sure what we have CAN be judged in the terms the OP suggests just yet.
I also think May’s attempts at conversations were poor starters considering why he doesn’t feel he can trust her.
These days any time I get close to Supernatural, I get the urge for Fallen!Cas to have wacky adventures with Phil Coulson.
Just Oops again. I’ve made lots of notes for other stuff, but this one kept me occuppied. Still officially untitled, though everyone seems like “Holy Shit, I Love You”.
Phil strokes Clint’s cheek. “Don’t make me promise something I can’t possibly keep,” he just about begs, because he’s close to that too, close to asking for things he has no right to ask for.
“I won’t,” Clint’s hoarse voice promises, “I’ve got a burner with me. I always do for ops like this.” He leans in for another soft kiss, “Can I call you?”
Phil closes his eyes, it’s not technically breaking any protocol, Clint will be doing shift work for a while. “Bring a second phone,” Phil says, “and only off shift.”
Clint smiles, “What do you take me for,” they share a short kiss, “an amateur?”
“No comment,” Phil says with a smile.
They leave it at that, no goodbyes, no promises, no exceptions, just professional nods. They’ll see each other again, Phil knows it.
The man’s eyes contain worlds of emotion. WORLDS.
He still remembers those soldiers who died for him in Afghanistan.
Basically Yes. This scene is SO important.
1. RDJ knocks it out of the park. Just. There’s basically his first two movies in that look and it’s amazing.
2. It says a lot about Steve in that moment, about his assumptions of EVERYTHING because if he read Tony’s file even a LITTLE he’d know that this is definitely NOT the first time someone close to him has died. Violently. And in ways that he can easily twist to thinking it was b/c he wasn’t good/fast/smart enough.
Think about where Steve is in this scene, he still thinks he’s better than Tony, he’s lowering himself to commiserate when in reality I think Tony is the braver one. He never wanted to be a soldier, I mean, look at Iron Man, it’s main design plus for tony is that he relies on no one else. He’s it. No one can die working with him. I bet Rhodey having the suit gives him nightmares. All the time. It’s not that Tony’s never had compatriots die, it’s that he was never part of an organization that trains for you to go to war and to accept that death comes with it. He’s essentially a volunteer and Steve just— is still living with his preconcieved notions.
Note: I do not hate steve, but I do find him pretty douchy for most of avengers.
EDIT: I mostly feel like this tells us that Steve isn’t adapting. I WISH some of the cut scenes had made it in. I do. I think it would have changed the flavor of this entirely.
