zolac_no_miko: (I like this icon alot.)

I know you have no idea what I'm on about nor do you care, but I just need a place to preserve things for posterity, and plurk is not great for that.

So, for some context: my Steve and his traveling companions, Beckett and Rydia, a.k.a Team Too Dumb To Live, made themselves horrendously ill burning furniture in one of the houses. This is apparently due to some sort of noxious death mold, but they didn't know that at the time, their first thought was THE FURNITURE IS POISON BECAUSE NORFINBURY IS A SADISTIC HELLHOLE (reasonable assumption). ...And when I say tremendously ill, I mean coughing, dizziness, nausea, and coughing up black goo for a solid week.

So, on the one hand, Team Too Dumb To Live. On the other hand, Dr. Clayton Epps, professional worry-wort, earnestly trying to keep his fellow prisoners healthy and safe. And the situation they're all currently in, which just gets funnier and funnier the more I think about it.

So. Steve, Beckett, and Rydia make themselves horribly ill burning furniture.

Clayton: "Stay here and rest, I'll go get food!"

Beckett: *Clayton doesn't even know he's sick, Beckett is actively hiding from him in another house because he was just horribly sick a few days ago and he's embarrassed*

Steve, Beckett, and Rydia: *NOT RESTING, go for a hike in a blizzard and BURN MORE FURNITURE, for science! (Steve is the ringleader)*

Beckett: *goes back to hiding, soon will have nothing to eat but herbal tea*

Rydia: *gets lost in the blizzard and ends up a full day's travel in the wrong direction in the funeral home, handcuffed to a toilet and made to endure a night of horrors while trying to chew her hand off*

Clayton: cMWalaa.gif

I just. I'm so sorry, Clayton. So sorry. XD

Also, we had an extensive plurk conversation about pee. A highlight: at least one of the characters is peeing into a bottle and using it as a hot water bottle to keep warm.

...I cannot tell you how much I love this game and these players. ♥_♥

In other news, have a barrel organ playing Smooth Criminal.

Getting more and more excited about SnowblindRPG. Reservations open tomorrow, and applications open November 1. I am so READY. In my soul, anyway; I feel like I finally have a good handle on all the rules and gameplay. Now I'm like, AAAAAAAHHH. NEED TO MAKE ICONS. NEED TO WRITE MY APPLICATION. AAAAAAHHHH. Making icons will be interesting, I always used to foist that off on Lauren-of-the-Photoshop-skills, but she's not in this game, so I guess I'm probably on my own. Also, Steve is my first not-animated character? Live-action is harder to screencap, omg.

Snowblind thoughtfully supplies a test drive meme that you can use for the roleplay sample section of the application, so I let Steve loose in there. And oh my god, I'm already having so much fun.

-This thread with Grey from Snowpiercer ...So there's this thing where all of the doors in Norfinbury seal at sunset, and if you don't make it inside before that happens, you freeze to death in the night. YES, THIS IS THE KIND OF GAME IT IS. So Grey gets stuck outside and he and Steve have a long (mostly text-based) conversation on their tablets while Grey slowly succumbs to hypothermia and Steve keeps him company, knowing there's nothing else he can do for him. IT'S SUPER CHEERFUL. *lying face down on the floor, weeping* Grey's mun is awesome, we might play together more even if she doesn't end up applying.
-This thread with Koriand'r. Dear god but I love me some Starfire. We're only 25 comments in and they're snuggling by the fire and Steve's already been slightly traumatized by too much breast exposure and there was a slightly dub-con snogging (Kori pulled her 'what, I'm only kissing you because I want to learn French, I get absolutely nothing else out of this, I swear' schtick) and Steve doesn't know WHAT the heck just happened and now he's trying to flirt and it's a fucking trainwreck. I'm enjoying this so much.
-This Cecil Palmer of Night Vale who is EXCELLENT, and who is also dying slowly of hypothermia, and Steve is trying to be there for him but Cecil is FREAKING HIM THE HELL OUT, oh god I cackle out loud every time the thread updates.

And there's Jim from Treasure Planet, Commander Shepard from Mass Effect, Zack Fair from Final Fantasy, Ava from the MCU spin-off novel Forever Red, Roy Mustang, and Dick Grayson! :D

Seriously can't wait to jump into the game. Is gonna be fuuuuuuunnn! Steve's gonna be so miserablllllllllle! >:D

Title: Patterns In Nature
Characters/Pairings: Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson, Bucky Barnes; Steve/Bucky
Rating: PG-13/T
Word Count: 4015
Summary: There's still a tie between them, a pull that Steve can just barely feel, has felt since he shaped his bruised jaw and split lips around the words I'm with you until the end of the line and watched the Winter Soldier's eyes go round with something not exactly like recognition and more than a little bit like horror.
Warnings: Spoilers for Captain America: The First Avenger and Captain America: The Winter Soldier. And. Weirdness?

Notes: A Festivus gift for the incredible [livejournal.com profile] lanyon, reposted a little late since I had to be anonymous for a while. I went with her prompts for Steve/Bucky and "matryoshka." Couldn't play it straight, though, could I, nooooo, it must be a ~METAPHOR~.

Un-beta'd and slightly rushed. I am not good at writing to a deadline. But I'm told it turned out okay! :D

Magical realism, ohhhhhh yes. I went there. )

Title: Hey, it's really nice in here
Characters/Pairing: Steve Rogers, Sam Wilson; Steve/Sam
Rating: PG-13/T
Word Count: 1362
Summary: They had set out to look for Bucky, but mostly what they found was underground Hydra outposts. Sometimes literally underground. Mostly what they also found was trouble.
Warnings: Spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier, naughty language, sexiness.

Notes: A birthday present for the lovely and talented [livejournal.com profile] nerdwegian, only a few days late, which is pretty good for me! I'm grateful for the excuse to break my writer's block. She asked for tropes, and this was the first and best and tropiest thing I could think of. She suggested Steve/Sam as an option, and I was delighted to give them a try! I hope y'all enjoy this silly thing as much as I enjoyed writing it.

Much mahalos to my darling lovely [livejournal.com profile] regonym for the quick beta. This is me renewing your lease on my soul, yet again. ♥♥♥♥

This is really quite tropey and silly, ahaha~ )
zolac_no_miko: (TEEEEAAAAAMMM)
Bucky lurking around the tower all taciturn and surly and Tony thinking he needs to lighten up, so he plays "Why Can't We Be Friends?" at him every time they're in the same room and Bucky glares and growls and contemplates homicide and Tony just griiiiiiiins and continues to poke the bear with the stick, as he do

And then during battle Tony catches a grenade for Bucky and nearly gets himself killed (as he do), he's been blasted through a wall and he's unconscious and the suit's crushed in on his chest a little so he can't breathe, and Bucky's maybe a bit concerned—just a little bit—and uses the arm to just rip the whole front of Tony's suit open

And Tony breathes, and coughs, and blinks his eyes open and says, "So does this mean we can be friends now?" and Bucky startles the shit out of himself by actually laughing

And later Bucky's complaining to Steve, "God help me I think I actually like him, why Steve, WHY, HE IS THE MOST IRRITATING PERSON ON THE PLANET, WHY??" and Steve pats him on the shoulder sympathetically, "I know, Bucky, I know, he did pretty much the exact same thing to me"

Basically this is the only way Tony knows how to make friends and it's SUPER EFFECTIVE and nobody can figure out why

Title: All the Things Forgotten Scream for Help
Characters/Pairing: Bucky Barnes, Natasha Romanoff, Steve Rogers, Tony Stark; Bucky/Natasha, Bucky/Steve
Rating: PG-13/T
Word Count: 2145
Summary: In the dream, the Soldier knows this man; he's known him his whole life. He knows that he loves this man more than anyone else in the entire world. He also knows that this man is the one who kills him. ...The dream is the same every time. In the end, the Soldier falls, and he dies.
Warnings: Spoilers for The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger, and also if you somehow don't have a basic understanding of what's going to happen in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, i.e., who the Winter Soldier is; maybe like three instances of R-rated language.
Disclaimer: Named characters and certain plot elements in this story are © Marvel Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures. All content is fictional and for entertainment purposes only, not for profit.

Notes: For the lovely [livejournal.com profile] sirona_gs because I always always want to give her presents, and she deserves them. Beta'd by the fabulous and invaluable [livejournal.com profile] regonym, whom I do not deserve; the story is vastly improved by her input.

This is what happens when you have Bucky Barnes on the brain and you listen to "Battle for the Sun" by Placebo too many times. That song is still my flawless Jason Todd anthem, but it also works pretty well for the Winter Soldier, as it turns out. The story is primarily movie-verse, cobbled together with comics canon and shit I just made up. I've taken some liberties with the dialogue in That Train Scene from Captain America.

Title is paraphrased from the highly appropriate quote from Elias Canetti, "All the things one has forgotten scream for help in dreams."

Title: Hold On To The Good Stuff (And Let Go)
Characters/Pairing: Steve Rogers, Tony Stark (gen, or pre-slash if you're so inclined and squint a little)
Rating: PG/K+
Word Count: 567
Summary: Steve was still unsure about where and how he fit into history, didn't know how to walk in 2012 with one foot still firmly planted in 1944.
Warnings: Mild spoilers for The Avengers and Captain America: The First Avenger; all of one swear word.
Disclaimer: Characters and plot elements in this story are © Marvel Entertainment and Walt Disney Pictures. All content is fictional and for entertainment purposes only, not for profit.

Notes: For the fabulous and incomparable [livejournal.com profile] look_alive (accept no substitutes) and her prompt: "Rollercoasters!" Title is from the song "The Old Days" by Dr. Dog. Unbeta'd.
