Goddamn your stupid pinboard. There goes my productive weekend.

SORRY NOT SORRY

Do you have any happy (or cracky!) Steve/Bucky or Steve&Sam recs for post-CATWS? I’ve been drowning in my own tears for days (no joke, last night I had to stop reading “we did not make ourselves” because everything hurt and I got out of bed to go make myself a baileys milkshake at 3:30 to continue reading, I was that miserable and everything sucks. Arghh fucking feels.

All of my recs are on my Pinboard account!

Pru: WE JUST GOT THE GREATEST COMMENT EVER
Waldorph: ??

Waldorph: YESSSSSS
Pru: /high fives
Waldorph: /high five

what if like bucky’s therapist encourages him to pick up a hobby that has absolutely nothing to do with espionage etc? like embroidery or cross-stitch or macrame? and he just leaves these intricate pieces of embroidery all over the avengers tower? and then tony interprets bucky’s actions as like a serious cry for help and freaks out when he finds a macrame iron man on top of his dresser?

waldorph:

They all think that it’s a new hobby, and Steve lets them. But Bucky’s been able to do a mean cross-stitch since before Steve met him, said he learned it from his mother, and then it was something to bring in extra money, and then it’d been applied to sewing the rest of the Howlers up—

So Steve just buys threads and needles and listens to Bucky bitch about synthetics—Steve swears Bucky learns the internet just to buy his precious thread, and if Bucky thinks Steve isn’t going to make fun of him for that from here to kingdom come he’s got another thing coming. 

And then Clint shows Bucky something from Etsy, and all Steve knows is he’s got a pillow that says FUCK YOU and a hand towel that says PUNK and somehow Dum-E ended up with a bib that says SMARTEST ONE IN THE ROOM that seems to have Tony torn between being infuriated and deeply, deeply amused.

“You can sell those,” Clint points out helpfully one day, and then there’s a goddamn Etsy shop full of beautiful, delicately-done, incredibly profane cross-stitch.

“So you can start paying rent now,” Steve says when Bucky crows about how much it’s making (it’s a lot. It’s way more than it should be).

Bucky turns wide, wounded eyes on him. “But—I thought you said not to worry about it.”

“Oh Christ,” Steve mutters.

“I thought you said that while I was in recovery—”

“Buck.”

“—that I shouldn’t worry, that I should focus on my hobbies and getting better and—”

“Please stop, Sam is going to walk in the door and think I’m actually re-traumatizing you.”

“—this is is making me happy.”

"Fine!” Steve groans, throwing his hands up. “I’ll just keep you in the manner to which you’ve become accustomed, okay?”

“Yeah, that’d be great,” Bucky says easily, and if he thinks Steve misses the sly smile he shoots at Natasha (who is clearly in the doorway only to observe how incredibly whipped Steve is), well. He’s a moron.

Since we’re both single and roughly the same age, it was hard for me not to treat our interview as a sort of date. Surprisingly, Chris did the same, asking all about me, my family, my job, my most recent relationship. And from ten minutes into that first interview, when he reached across the table to punctuate a joke by putting his hand on top of mine, Chris kept up frequent hand holding and lower-back touching, palm kissing and knee squeezing. He’s an attractive movie star, no complaints. I also didn’t know how much I was supposed to respond; when I did, it sometimes felt a little like hitting on the bartender or misconstruing the bartender’s professional fliirting for something more. I wanted to think it was genuine, or that part of it was, because I liked him right away.

Is this the part of a celebrity profile where I go into how blue the star’s eyes are? Because they are very blue.

This interview is blowing up today, I am definitely not mad at that.
