Avengers Headcanons! 

[Tony/Bruce brotp, Bruce & Stark Tower]
It takes Tony longer than he would have liked to get Stark Tower up and running again. He leaves Pepper in charge of consulting with each of the Avengers to make sure that they have everything they want on their floor. It was almost unspoken that they would live, at least semi-permanently in Stark Tower. The only person from The Avengers that Tony consults is Bruce. Pepper reminds Tony that not everyone is accustomed to living like him and that Bruce probably doesn't care if the equipment in his lab was 5 years of 5 minutes old. The first time Bruce comes by his finished lab, it's exactly like Tony said. Candy land. Tony explains how JARVIS works, and that he can order whatever he needs through JARIVS. At first, Bruce doesn't do anything but explore every inch of the massive lab that Tony has put together for him, almost afraid to touch anything for fear of destroying something ("do you know how many times Tony has destroyed his lab?" Pepper tells him whens he comes to find him for dinner one night). 

Bruce gets Tony to explain how some of the tech works, because it's all StarkTech anyway. After that day, Bruce gets interested in the tech that Tony creates, and they spend hours in the lab together. Bruce, being the doctor, is the one who takes care of all the other Avengers. Natasha rails against the flu ("Russian assassins do NOT get sick, Doc. It doesn't happen!"), and it takes Clint to convince her ("Goddamn it, Natasha, just do what the doc says and stay the fuck in bed"), and they become some of fucked up family. It's suddenly a year and a half later and beyond official Avengers saving-the-world business, he goes without losing control and one day a sign appears above the door to his lab that just reads "Candyland. All giant green rage monsters welcome"

Tony convinces Bruce that letting The Other Guy out is better than bottling him up, and Tony gets Bruce to help him design the best place for this to happen. They have a gym in the sub-basement where The Other Guy and Thor battle it out, and eventually Bruce learns how to just be The Other Guy
bonus headcanon: Bruce is the only person that Tony tells that he's tried to kill himself.

Tony uses every single corny and horrible pick up line on Steve, both in private and in public because Steve has never heard ANY OF THEM. This continues for at least a month until Bruce literally cannot take it anymore and tells Steve. Clint and Natasha usually just laugh silently.

Clint and Natasha fight instead of having sex. The fighting usually leads to inapprorpriate sex in the basement of Stark Avengers Tower. They've been walked in on by every other member of the Avengers, who now know that the gym is off limits for at least 3 hours when the pair of them are in there

Tony knows exactly what happened on the helicarrier (Tony is like the Gossip Girl of The Avengers) and puts Natasha on the floor below Bruce and above Clint, and it takes her longer than she's comfortable with to be okay with this. She keeps expecting him to Hulk out in the middle of the night and drop through her ceiling which she knows is ridiculous. It's not until she goes down to the gym in the middle of the night one night and passes his lab that she realises how stupid she was, because he's sitting there waving his hands at a hologram of something that she taps in her code and sits next to him as he explains what he's working on. She doesn't understand most of it, but she listens because he talks.

There is no yard at the Tower in New York, and they all refuse to let a dog live in the tower ("I'm not having a little mongrel tear up my shoes. What if there are aliens invading earth again, Natasha?" "Don't be so fucking dramatic, Clint") , and Tony has this huge place in Malibu that nobody is living in. So Thor spends a lot of time there, and accompanies Pepper whenever there is Stark Industries business. He takes Sif and the Warriors Three there, because they seem to spend a lot more time on earth then on Asgard these days, and Thor adopts three black lab puppies. Pepper sends Tony pictures, and they get pinned around Stark Tower, because it's so goddamn ridiculous to see Thor, who is 6'4 and built like a truck have three tiny animals crawl all over him. Even Clint bucks over in the end, and the now fully grown dogs come to live in the Tower. Not one of Clint's shoes ever get eaten.

Phil played it a lot cooler than he thought he would. From the ages of 5 to almost 20, there was only one Halloween costume fit for Phil Coulson, and that was Captain America. How was he supposed to know that SHIELD and Tony Stark and Captain Goddamn America were going to walk into his life and turn it upside down? How was he supposed to know that he'd face off with the actual God of Mischief. He thinks that the best and worst thing he ever did was convince Captain America that he was dead. And he will spend the rest of his life trying to erase the look of hurt on Steve's face when he walked through the door of a ruined shawarma restaurant in downtown New York

Thor isn't sure he can ever forgive Loki for what he's done, for the people he has hurt. Even after Thor found out that Loki was not truly his brother, it was not like an instant turn of events. They are brothers, and their bond is deeper than blood, because it does not run through blood. Thor knows that the people around him do not understand his need to defend his brother, but he does not expect them to. They are from broken families, broken pasts. He knows that this is what has made them warriors, fighters. But he is a warrior by lineage. He knows of family and he knows of courting war. And Loki crosses somewhere between the two of these things. And Thor does not know how to reconcile that.

Sif wasn't sure when her life had become so complicated. She supposed when Thor went to Earth, and she had decided to follow. Now she finds herself caught between two worlds. The Man of Iron had offered her, and her Warriors Three a place on earth, but it is not home. She has fought her battles and won her place. But now she's not sure what her place is. It would be a lie, both of mind and heart to say that she did not ache when she saw Thor with Jane, but she believed that all things worked out as they are meant to, and if she was meant to ache now to gain happiness later, she would pay the price.

[Nick Fury/His Band of Merry Men]
Not a lot of things surprise Nick Fury. What happens after the battle of New York does. He took a risk. A huge, potentially life ending choice in asking them to work together. He has no control over what they do next. And he doesn't want it. He asks Maria to make sure nothing really disastrous happens while he deals with the council. And it doesn't. He trusts his team. They can deal with what comes next.

Steve's favourite thing about the future is JARVIS. Tony, quite frankly, is both pleased and insulted ("Why aren't I your favourite thing?" he pouts one night). JARVIS can answer any of his millions of questions. The thing about sleeping for 70 years is that you miss a lot more than people would have thought. Tony enlists Darcy and JARVIS to teach Steve the important things, they start with the wars and go from there. When they get to President Obama, Steve decides his favourite thing about the future is the future. He also decides that his least favourite thing about the future is the future. ("Is this why you won't go out with me in public, Tony? Tony, this is stupid!"). Of all the times to wake up, Steve decides that it could be worse than 2012

sg-1 [hugging the puppet]

(no subject)

So what I want to do is put all my lady friends from the internet in a room together. Because all of my ladies are fierce and amazing and the strongest people I have ever known. And I want to hug every single one of them. It's been a long time coming, but I've finally realized that courage is more than just standing up to other people. It's about standing up to yourself. It's about doing the things that scare you shitless.

And the courage of my lady friends gives me courage to do the things that scare me. To step into a new relationship with no idea what to do and try and navigate it as best I can, because I can't let this amazing woman walk into my life and inspire me and make me laugh and then let her get away. To finish that fic I was writing and put it out there in the public. And even to cut my hair.

I am inspired by all of you. You have so much strength that you willingly give to other people. So much love to share with people you've never met.

You are the bravest women I know, and you have so much to offer all the people in your lives, and my only wish is for all of you to embrace everything amazing about yourselves that I see in you.

having "the talk"

I somehow stumbled today from reading Autostraddle's NSFW Sunday to reading an advice article for mums who are trying to have "the talk" with their daughters. 

And it made me think about my own experience with the talk - mostly the fact that I never got the talk. Not really. When I was in Grades 6 and 7, we had Family Planning QLD come out to the school and give three hour long talks on how babies are made and what hormones do and why I bleed like a stuck pig out of my vagina for 5 days every month and what a condom is. Basically, we were told about the basic mechanics of sex, and at the end, we got to watch a woman have a baby, which let me tell you, has pretty much put me off pushing a 6lb human out of vagina EVER. And this seemed to be enough for my mum. I was in Grade 7 the first time I got my period and informed my mum and that was the end of it. 

But never, in any of those talks was there a mention of sex for pleasure, or what an orgasm was or what the hell my clitoris even was, so you can be sure there wasn't any mention of the word masturbation. There sure as hell wasn't any mention of LGBT relationships (this is now almost 10 years ago!). As an 11 and 12 year old, this satisfied most of my curiosity, because exposure to the internet wasn't nearly what it is now, and it wasn't until I got to high school that I became curious about the other parts of my sexuality. I spent 5 years at an all girls school, and pretty much from my first day there, the word lesbian was thrown around everywhere. At this stage of my little gay life, I had no idea I was gay, even though I knew what a lesbian was. It actually wasn't until half way through Grade 8, when I really started to read ALL the fanfic that I learnt about sex and masturbation and what a vibrator was and the stuff they won't teach you in sex ed. It was also at this point that I had my first kiss, ripe old age of 13. At 15 I'd mostly figured out I was queer and told my friends with mixed reactions, including "how can you know if you've never had sex?". Well, at 20, I'm still a virgin, and yep. Still queer. 

My own experience with sex education is probably why I have no shame in talking about any facet of sex, or concealing the fact that I have a healthy sex drive. 

It also made me think

What was your experience with sex education like? Did your parents ever give you the talk and looking back now, did you learn anything from it? If you ever have children, what would you like to talk to them about that you feel like you missed out on?



There is a whole new set of spoiler photos out today from the Bones season finale, The End In The Beginning which airs on May 14th AND OH MY GOD. Seriously OH MY GOD.

This is my warning. BOTH PICTURES AND PICTURE DESCRIPTIONS CONTAIN SPOILERS and may cause heart attacks.

So give me your thoughts, squeals and predictions.

the crackpots and these women.

Each of us are unique and beautiful. We each have talents and qualities that make us special. Every person in our lives sees us in a different light. Our parents view us differently to our siblings, who see us differently again to our friends, who then see us differently from those we work with. The biggest difference though, is how we view ourselves. Each of us are different. We are dancers, feminists, democrats, republicans, students, career women. We are from all nationalities and religions. But we are women. We have curves and things we don't like about ourselves. We are sometimes moody, and other times we can't stop smiling for no reason. We have different quirks and habits, some of which we may share. We aren't all size 8, and many of us don't want to be. I was incredibly struck by a conversation that was had on an early episode of the West Wing, in which Bartlet, Leo and Josh talk about the women in their lives, and it truly has stuck with me, because it demonstrates that people really often do see the best in us, not the worst.

We were talking about these women
Josh: Yeah?
Leo: We can't get over these women
Bartlet: Look at C.J (CJ is laughing and talking to Sam and Donna while holding a Polaroid) She's like a fifties movie star, so capable, so loving and energetic
Leo: Look at Mandy over there (Mandy is on the other side of the room fighting with Toby about something) Going punch for punch with Toby in a world that tells women to sit down and shut up. Mandy's already won her battle with the President. The game's over, but she's not done. She wants Toby
Bartlet: Mrs. Landingham. Did you guys know she lost two sons in Vietnam? What would make her want to serve her country is beyond me, but in 14 years she's not missed a day's work. Not one. There's Cathy, Donna and Margaret.

We are strong, independent women, and no matter how anyone else see us, we should always keep in mind that there is someone out there than thinks we are. That thinks we are beautiful. That is proud of us. That loves us. And if being a part of the livejournal community has taught me anything in the 3 years that I've been here, it is that some of the most incredible people can be found here, and that the deepest of friendships can be formed.
