cinaed: I can whistle through my fingers, bulldog a steer, light a fire with two sticks, shoot a pistol with fair accuracy (Ann Sheridan)
 Snippets of stuff from my WIPs…aka my Avengers folder…


when we come back, we’ll be dressed in black

“July 3rd, 1997, 13:25,” Coulson said into the recorder. He fought to keep his voice steady despite the dehydration that made his tongue stick to the roof of his mouth and his cracked lips sting with every syllable. “This is Agent Phillip Coulson reporting from somewhere in Nicaragua, precise coordinates currently unknown. If anyone finds this, be aware that our intel regarding Desi Pena as a viable asset was incorrect. The mission has been compromised—”

“You know, Coulson, I’d heard you were the master of the understatement, but fuck,” Medina muttered next to him. Her sunken eyes met his, holding a hint of bleak amusement as she raised her voice loud enough to be caught on the recorder. “In other words, our possible asset turned out to like working for the local drug-lord, killed Powell, stole our goddamn helicopter, and left us in the middle of one of Nicaragua’s rainforests. So yeah, compromised.” 


you are a bullet in the chamber of the gun

She awoke to the sound of voices.

Basic instinct kept her breathing steady, her body motionless, as her senses slowly returned. Two men argued nearby, one with a shaky, querulous voice of an old man, the other with the self-assured tone of a man younger and stronger.  

“How will we know if it’s worked?” The question came from the younger man, harsh with impatience.

“I told you, you have to give me time,” snapped the old man. “This is a delicate process—”

“The boss gave us a strict time table. Do you really want to disappoint him?”

“No,” the old man said quickly. “No, but—”


dark, the days when the ships came slowly in

It was shame that drove Thor from The Dolphin and onto the streets of Southampton. Shame, and the realization that if he bore witness to yet another soul struggling to hide contempt, or, worse still, pity at the recognition of Thor’s name, he would go mad.

He wandered the streets, his path aimless and uncertain. It was a struggle to think of a means of diversion that would not force others’ company upon him, or his upon theirs. He had already concealed himself away in his room, brooding over the court-martial, for far too much of the past few weeks.


Other Lives and Dimensions

“Doesn’t anyone appreciate banter these days?” Megamind complains, and then ducks as a shot from Doctor Element’s element-gun hums past his shoulder. He is tired and more than a little irritable. Today is his three-month anniversary with Roxanne, and rather than having a nice dinner with her he’s spent the entire evening fighting this unimaginative philistine. “What am I supposed to do with ‘Die, Megamind, die’? I mean, honestly, a little effort would be—”

He pauses to dive behind the remains of a wall as Doctor Element growls out a curse and fires his element-gun again.

cinaed:  Superstitions are habits rather than beliefs. (Marlene Dietrich)

1. (Avengers/10th Kingdom)

Darcy wasn’t thinking anything of it when she invited Jane, some SHIELD agents, and the Avengers to her cousin’s diner to celebrate her birthday. Sitwell and Coulson would appreciate the food. Plus, in her defense, her cousin Virginia had neglected to mention that a) her deadbeat dad, Darcy’s uncle, hadn’t run off but was actually living in a whole other dimension and b) Virginia’s husband Wolf wasn’t entirely, well, human. When a group of red-cloaked assassins tried to kill Wolf in the middle of the party, however, Darcy found her work life and her family life mingling in some very strange ways. 

2. (Avengers/Hanna)

When Natasha was assigned to investigate the disappearance of Marissa Wiegler, she hadn’t expected to uncover a C.I.A. program far too similar to Department X for her own peace of mind. She certainly hadn’t expected to find someone like Hanna. Now Natasha just had to figure out what to do about her. (Clint’s voice in the back of her head jokingly saying, “But Director Fury, she followed Nat home. Can’t we keep her?” didn’t help matters.)

3. (Avengers/Percy Jackson)

Tony had gotten used to the idea of the Norse gods being real and aliens. Finding out about the Greek gods and the fact that to all intents and purposes they’re actual gods? That was a bit harder to take, especially when it seemed as though he was suddenly surrounded by demigods— Hawkeye is the son of Apollo, Darcy the daughter of Hermes, and Maria Hill the daughter of Athena. …Then he discovered Pepper’s mother is Tyche and really lost it. 

4. (Avengers/The Pretender)

SHIELD had been trying to get someone into The Centre for years to no avail when Jarod escaped. When someone noticed the pattern of Jarods with identical faces uncovering crimes across the country, Fury sent Natasha to gather intel on him. Fury hadn’t intended for her to join forces with Jarod against the Centre and raze the place to the ground, but he probably should have expected that outcome.  

5. (Avengers/Young Justice)

The Justice League is a popular comic book universe in the Marvel ‘verse. When SHIELD discovers that a group of teenagers have decided to take up being superheroes inspired by their comic book heroes, they send the Avengers to talk them out of it. Instead, the Avengers become mentors to the teenagers, with particular bonds between Connor and Natasha, Artemis and Clint, Wally and Bruce, Thor and Kaldur, Dick and Coulson, Megan and Tony, etc. 

and one I’m writing:

1. (Avengers/MIB)

Officially, SHIELD and the Men in Black didn’t work together. SHIELD handled the big, flashy alien invasions, while the Men in Black handled the more subtle threats and mundane tasks of a planet within a diversely populated universe. Unofficially, however, the two agencies were more inter-related than they seemed.

Settiai's "The War Was in Color" is possibly one of the best music videos I've ever seen. The lyrics fit so perfectly at times that I almost would have thought the song was made for the movie, even though I know full well Carbon Leaf released that song a few years ago.

If you love Captain America, watch this music vid. If you want some Avengers team feels, watch this. If you just like watching vids that are extremely well made, watch this. You won't regret it.

So, apparently not having internet for almost a month means I actually finish stories. I'm a good chunk of the way into a MIB/Avengers crossover as well.

Also, since this was written for het_bigbang, I received some lovely artwork for my story. You can find it here:

I have now seen Avengers twice in theaters and am in love. I have read so much fic over the past few weeks, guys, so much fic. Plus, this is a fandom where I can multiship as much as I did in SGA, which is awesome! Currently, I am mostly reading Tony/Pepper, Tony/Pepper/Bruce, Clint/Natasha, Clint & Natasha friendship, Steve/anyone, Darcy/anyone, Coulson/anyone/gen, and team fic.

I am also, for the first time in a couple months, writing fic! Two fics at the moment:

when we come back we'll be dressed in black

Summary: SHIELD handles the big, flashy alien invasions, but sometimes there’s call for a little subtlety. Cue the Men in Black. (Avengers/Men in Black crossover, Coulson-centric)

this bullet lodged in my chest, covered with your name

Summary: Some of her memories are true, some are false, but throughout all of them runs one thread of remembrance: a cool metal hand on her back, against her cheek, around her throat; an assassin with a crooked smile and eyes like winter. (Natasha Romanoff/Bucky “James” Barnes, Steve Rogers/Darcy Lewis, Tony Stark/Pepper Potts/Bruce Banner, past Bucky/Steve, brief Natasha/Darcy)

If anyone has any recs, I'd be happy to read 'em! And if anyone wants any recs, let me know! Like I said, I have been reading a LOT of fic at the moment, lol.
