Jenn. 20 something living in the DC metro. This used to be a multi-fandom blog and then Marvel happened. Expect a mixed bag of television, comics, science, politics, and wailing about my inability to Adult properly. But mostly Marvel. And a hell of a lot of Steve/Tony. *In an effort to keep my dash manageable, I do not follow tumblrs that don't use tags. Use tags! They are handy and make the world a nicer place!*

 

yeah, all these people are dressed like superheroes but you’re on a Segway, so really, who’s the nerd here?

Carol Corps / Kamala Korps Meet-Up Reminder!

Carol Corps and Kamala Korps Meet-Up at the National Air and Space Museum on Friday, April 18th at 2pm

Independence Ave at 6th Street, SW 
Washington, DC 20560
Phone: 202-633-2214

Let’s meet at the Space Race section, off to the left hand side on the first floor when you enter the building. Costumes are encouraged for picture taking purposes, but please do keep in mind that this is DC so if you think something on your costume might worry security you should probably leave it at home/in your hotel. (Aw, arrows.)

Please be sure to check out the Awesome Con website for further details about comic related events happening that weekend. I’ll be running around as a volunteer for something or another, so don’t be shy to ask me any questions. See you in two weeks! :)

Please note that this is an informal get together and is in no way associated with Awesome Con or the Smithsonian Institute.  

ADDITIONALLY: If you are planning to attend in costume, why not come to the Capital Reflecting Pool to help set a Guinness Book Record? I’ll be there! In street clothes because I’m a volunteer but I’ll be in costume in spirit.

See you tomorrow!

igavethatbitchalink suggested we write fluff in response to the Original Sin spoilers that came out today. So, of course, I wrote like 2,000 words of angst oops.

Tony had been anticipating this moment for what felt like ages. He always knew, from the instant Strange had cast that charm and Tony had had to fight down the absolutely instinctive urge to catch Cap as he fell, that Steve would remember eventually.

The confirmation from his future grand-daughter that things were about to go a lovely pear shape hadn’t been necessary. But it did validate Tony’s suspicions that he was running out of time.

So he had redoubled his efforts to get everything ready and in order, his own words echoing constantly in his mind. "I’m sorry…I’ll find some way to make this right." 

He didn’t expect forgiveness. He’d be the first to say he probably didn’t deserve it. But he didn’t regret his decisions either. Because he was going to save this world, damn it, no matter the costs, and he was going to leave it in the best possible hands when the time came. 

So Tony had plotted, and planned, and reveled in the moments he spent at Steve’s side while he still had the chance. And very pointedly didn’t think about the moment he knew was coming.

It wasn’t the hitch in Steve’s breath that gave it away, but it was the first sign to Tony that something was wrong.

At first I was like, “Has anyone taught the royals how to hold a baby? Anyone?”

But as more footage has come out over the last few days of Prince Thrashes McKickenhit there, I’m now like, “that is clearly the best way to hold that child, A+ parenting for not dropping him on his little royal butt.”

my mom just muttered “i hate this motherfucking traffic” and that sums up DC pretty well

There is no such thing as being “on time” in DC. There is simply a 45-60 minute window where you will either be super early or super late.
