avengers au → natasha is the american 007, pepper is both her Q and her love interest
Okay so I’ve been watching The Avengers way too much lately, like you do. And I love the scene where Tony is poking Bruce and Cap is being…Cap. So as I’m watching it I am like ‘Where the hell does Tony get the blueberries from?’ So I watch again and I see it! The tall black cylinder case thing that says ‘Stark Industries’. Totally Tony’s snacks. Cause you know he was like ‘Fuck SHEILD. They’re not gonna have good snacks.’ And then right next to it in the next frame is a big wardrobe case. You can see a Tony shoe and some random clothes like his suit jacket and red shirt. This asshole brought snacks and a freaking wardrobe. I love him.
HAVE I EVER EXPRESSED HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS FANDOM??
Natasha isn’t ice, she’s a forest fire or a hurricane, and Steve has been around long enough to know that this is rarely understood. Natasha could melt away the freezing winters of Russia if she wanted to, and when Steve finally kisses her for real he tastes ashes on her tongue.
She discovers the dossiers, the yellowed photographs, tucked neatly into a box under his cot, and when she looks up at him Steve sees himself mirrored in her expression.
“James,” she says, and Steve’s world stops.
