sometimes i like to think of how aggressively NOT a nature person steve would be
i mean, he’s a city boy. loves being a city boy. he had to survive in the wilderness during the war, but it was a lot of teeth-gritting, trudging through the mud, sleeping on the cold, rocky ground and longing for warm meals at home
so the first time sam takes him camping he’s just so CONFUSED and CONCERNED
like, sam are we going on the run or something, will they see us if we make a fire?? sam what did you do i will help you i promise
and the first time sam takes steve and bucky, bucky expresses the same level of wtf like, we are walking up and down hills for FUN?? why are we eating cold beans when microwaves have been invented what is this
and steve’s like, humor him okay we love him. remember we love him
(meanwhile natasha’s just too smart for this noise. she saw sam’s camper and NOPE’d out of the driveway so fast she left a rubber mark on the sidewalk. she spent the week at a 5-star hotel w clint eating junk food and watching a scifi originals marathon)
remember we love him

- A lot of Natasha’s mysterious reputation around SHIELD stems from the fact that she sometimes doesn’t know how to end a conversation so she’ll dive away Batman style when the other person’s back is turned.
- Whenever Natasha walks into a room, she immediately ranks everyone in it from most to least threatening, then favorite to least favorite. For the second list, no one can match Tony’s ability to go from a respectable placing to dead last in the span of one sentence.
- She’ll watch any movie with “shark” in the title, provided the movie is also objectively terrible.
- Natasha loves emojis.
- Natasha genuinely enjoyed spending time with Pepper while investigating Tony, but once her mission was over, Natasha immediately disappeared to avoid the awkwardness of the “so hey, I was undercover and everything I told you about myself was a lie” conversation. Then Maria starts working at Stark Industries and arranges power lunches that seem a lot like the three women getting mimosas and complaining about their day, and now Natasha and Pepper have a standing dinner date every time they’re in the same city.
- She changes her hair so often for the novel joy of being able to choose what she looks like. Natasha has liked all her hairstyles, except that one perm which we don’t talk about or acknowledge existed, Clint, don’t you dare show those pictures to Steve.
- She knows it’s childish, but Natasha identifies to an uncomfortable degree with any robot character who seems to be programmed to experience emotion, especially if the humans around them doubt the robot really feels anything. (It’s not like she’s written anything down about it, she’s not that sad, but for the past decade Natasha has been working on this version of Blade Runner where it’s this replicant who’s the hero, and she ends up escaping Earth and heads off to explore alien planets with a mech-shark she stole from the Tyrell Corporation, it sounds dumb but it’s actually very exciting and oh god, Natasha is that sad.)
- Once Natasha left her phone on Sam’s kitchen table. When she came back two minutes later, Sam and Steve had managed to take eighty-two selfies. She kept them all. It’s embarrassing how happy they make her.
- But it’s more embarrassing to Sam and Steve when Natasha shows the selfies to Maria and Pepper at lunch, and that makes Natasha pretty happy too.
cishet people be like NOOO U CANT USE THAT TERM TO DESCRIBE UR SEXUALITY/GENDER ITS MADE UP WORD!!! and then turn around and make up ridiculous terms like mancrush and guyliner and man-purse in order to keep their precious hetronormitive gender roles intact
The post I didn’t know I was waiting for
In the past two days, my internet got disconnected, a bunch of my friends loaded my stuff onto a truck and trailer, and I cleaned and checked out of my apartment. Tomorrow morning, my housemates and I get the keys to our new place and move in.
I don’t really have anything to say, I just really wanted to use that gif.
I think it’s helpful, because if you’re making the expression then you know how faces do. “looked angry” is less informative than “skin under the eyes tightened and, as spoke, the furrow between brows deepened”. Like that says more about kind of face
True! It’s definitely makes the writing more visceral at times. And it can be really fun. Writing Hulk POV, I could tell when I finally got it right because I was sitting at my desk growling quietly and typing like this:
The problem I have with writerface is that I don’t always write in private. I enjoy writing with other writers, at cafes/restaurants, in the shared dining room of a busy household, etc. Some stories are easiest to write when there’s people and noises around. I just hope those stories never end up being the ones involving Hulk POV or Rhodey’s O-face.

constant-instigator said: You know perfectly well that I do this. Just…not for porn. Apparently I’ve learned to look very stoic and serious and thoughtful when writing porn. Probly from writing it at work so often.
Well then! This is something we didn’t cover in my writing program. XD
