Why Did You Capitalize The Word ‘Cabbage’ But Not The Word ‘France’ : an adventure in reading fanfiction

coming soon, the thrilling sequel: ‘You’ve Gone Through Three Different Tenses In The Space Of One Paragraph And I Think You Just Invented A Whole New One All Of Your Own’

and the long anticipated conclusion to the trilogy: ‘I Have No Idea Who Is Supposed To Be Speaking Right Now’

(via briangefrich)

Fic request - Coulson gets to introduce Skye to Steve for the first time and is super pleased until Skye and Steve end up hitting it off too well... (As platonic friends, but Coulson's Skye-vision doesn't realize this).

Even though I would really want to tackle this very fic idea someday - because it’s probably the only scenario where I could see myself writing jealous!Coulson and I want to talk about Steve/Skye as mirror images at length and why Coulson seems attracted to certain forms of rebellious idealism - in the meantime I will point you in the direction of Five Times Coulson and Skye Meet Steve Rogers, which is a delightful fic on this very subject - it is a WIP right now and it does also feature Steve/Natasha, which not everyone might like, but it’s really fun and romantic and Steve teases Coulson mercilessly about his obvious crush on Skye. Totally recommended.

I am THRILLED with the idea of you writing about the mirror images thing and the Coulson/rebellious idealism bit! That sounds fantastic!!

In the meantime, thank you so much for the fic rec (I couldn’t stop the idiotic grin while I was reading it - it totally helps that I enjoy Steve/Natasha), and have you stumbled across anything else with Steve and Skye as friends? People do seem to enjoy crossing Agents of SHIELD characters with various Avengers, but I keep coming up empty-handed on this… argh! 

There are some SHIELD/Avengers crossovers in the Coulson/Skye tag but I don’t think I’ve seen more Steve/Skye friendship ones.

Well, I’ve already written about Skye bonding with each and everyone of the Avengers (which was heavy on the Skye/Steve side because i play favourites) but it was before SHIELD fell - it would be interesting to see how Steve Rogers, who was the person who said SHIELD had to fall along with HYDRA, would react to SHIELD being rebuilt somewhere else. To Fury doing exactly what he told him not to - try to salvage SHIELD somehow. He would probably think Coulson was just being Fury’s obedient dog (and well, in the absurd season 1 finale, he was) and I don’t think he would get on very well with Coulson because of this. But maybe then he would meet Skye and he would see the kind of influence she could have on SHIELD’S future and if he saw how much Coulson actually listens to her and how important SHIELD was to her… I think maybe Steve would feel Peggy’s legacy might be safe in Coulson’s hands as long as Skye is there to stop him from straying off the right path. And Skye would understand why Steve wanted SHIELD gone but at the same time she could probably make him see that all she wants is to protect the people no one else would be protecting and SHIELD is just a name. And well, Coulson’s huge hero crush on Steve comes more or less from the same place as his HUGE hero crush on Skye, that idealism he thought he himself had to leave behind.

I DON’T KNOW, MAN, SKYE + STEVE ROGERS FEELS AMIRITE. i mean, morally flawless little cocky shits who grew up orphans wanting to do the right thing and protect the world while society shoved them aside because they weren’t the “right kind of people” for that job. rule-breaking reckless FAVES.

Maybe I should write some Skye & Steve stuff for the Skye/Coulson Fest, for the Avengers prompt - though I’d also like to write about Coulson and Natasha bonding over their complicated feelings regarding Fury, that’s something I really need to write at some point.

It’s really interesting you bring up the point about how Steve would react to the rebuilding of SHIELD that he had specifically told Fury not to do. Before the season finale, before we knew that it was going to get rebuilt (by Coulson), I had been curious to see how Steve would react to meeting Skye and Coulson after he had brought about SHIELD’s downfall, realizing how much like a family SHIELD had been to Skye and Coulson and how Steve had basically taken everything from them (Coulson having basically grown up in SHIELD since forever and Skye only just having joined but finally having felt like she found the place where she belonged, and knowing that SHIELD protected her while she was in foster care all those years). That he’d have to deal with the effects and consequences of his choices to get rid of SHIELD on a more personal level, and with people who have such big hearts being completely heartbroken about it. I was also interested to see how Skye and Coulson would be reacting to Steve in reverse in that instance, knowing that he’d made the choice to destroy it all, and how that would color their interactions with him. 

Adorable rebellious morally perfect orphans all the way, man.


(I’ve read your fic that has her interacting with all the Avengers btw and I totally had a ball with it. You do so much great Skoulson writing but I’m pretty sure that one is my fave. It left me needing so much more!!)

Joe Russo: A lovely scene between these two, really highlights the platonic nature of their relationship but with real, deep - I think there’s actual love there that’s like a brother and a sister.

Steve McFeely: They’ve also changed each other. She’s blown all her covers in large part because Steve has shown her that maybe you shouldn’t live such a morally murky life. She’s trying to push him towards Emily VanCamp.

A post with two GIF sets directly comparing BBC Sherlock to Princess Bride just appeared on my dash…

Why? Why is this a thing? I quit. I QUIT, TUMBLR. THAT’S THE LAST STRAW. *packs up and leaves forever*

(I’m sorry, but Sherlock doesn’t come anywhere near deserving the honor of being compared to Princess Bride, and you can burn me at the stake for saying so.)
