fake movies: avengers lady centric au (for nyssa)

Peggy is the one to get stuck in ice in and survive the century. Pepper doesn’t get rid of Extremis and becomes Rescue. Bruce Banner stays under the radar leaving Betty as the authority in gamma radiation. Jane retains some of the Aether’s powers. Thor is busy ruling Asgard, therefore Sif is the one tasked to retrieve the Tesseract. Director Fury rounds them all up along with Black Widow for his Avengers Initiative and, Barton being compromised, Maria Hill steps up as the marksman of the team. 

tldr; the ladies save the world instead

"we are not soldiers.”  {requested by chelsea}

Well, the folks at work surprised me with an impromptu farewell cupcake party, which was very sweet and unexpected.

However, apparently no one remembered that it’s Passover until I walked into the room, which was a little awkward.

Natasha’s breath catches and it’s not the smoke that burns her lungs but the memory of water, and air so cold it makes the throat sting. The memory of a silver hand in hers, the sensation of running her fingers through his hair so strong its like an urge she can barely repress. She knows this man, down to the soles of his boots she knows him. 

Eyes above the mask offer no hint of recognition. She bites the inside of her lip, hard, drawing blood.

Of course. Scrubbed clean.

Time to move, Romanoff.

He was the one who would always have her back, not because he thought she needed any help, but simply because it made her happy.-She was the one who always found him in his darkest moments and understood. She didn’t try to rationalize it, didn’t try to belittle it, she just accepted all the worst… and stood next to him anyway.-In the end, they’d always find their way back.

"Get some sleep. We’ve got a briefing before sunrise… or do I have to knock you out?"

"You’d love that…"

"You know me too well."

Who is the Winter Soldier?

latkje:

The big irony is, that for all that it’s always cold in Siberia, Winter Soldier is a profoundly American codename. Yeah, hang onto your high school history textbooks, folks:

These are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

That comes to us courtesy of The Crisis, a 1776 pamphlet by Thomas Paine meant to stir up revolutionary morale. The winter soldier does not shirk her duty, in the toughest times does not retreat. The concept re-entered pop consciousness during the Vietnam war, when it was used by veterans trying to publicize American war crimes. The harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
