JoanBell Fest 2014 day 5
fic: A Break, A Pause
prompts: moving day, windows, profiles
summary: Marcus returns to the 11th Precinct, with some help. (takes place during/shortly after 2x13)
note: sort of vaguely fulfills Watson’s Woes prompt 5 (makes the music mute), if you define “music” as “watson’s voice” and “mute” as “awkward silence”
There had been the formal filing of his transfer paperwork; there had been the small goodbye function with his erstwhile colleagues from Demographics; and there had been the phone call to his mother to let her know that he was headed away from the “stop ‘n frisk” squad (as she so charmingly put it) and back to his old unit. Now all that’s left is for Marcus to actually make the move back to his desk at the precinct.
give me more about sam wilson
talk to me about how he spent three years unlearning hypervigilance only for it all to come roaring back in one afternoon
tell me about the dreams he has with riley falling, with nat falling, with steve falling, and he swoops to catch him but then steve turns into the winter soldier ripping his wings to shreds, rumlow down below beating the shit out of riley’s body, dead and riddled with bullet holes and still begging for mercy, God, please, Sam, please make him stop, tell me about the times he wakes up with the lurch of freefall in his gut
tell me about the nights he can’t sleep because he’s too busy checking the locks in his apartment over and over again, mechanically running through the same motions, because every time he’s just about to drift off there’s a jolt and the needle skips in his head and he has make another circuit of the room he just has to just one more and he’ll be safe, so he gives up and slumps down on his couch and texts natasha because she’s probably off somewhere halfway around the world and she won’t make anything of it like steve would
they chat for a while until she says im coming over and lo & behold, ten minutes later she’s climbing through his window, she’s pulling some fucking??? power tools ?? out of her purse, it’s three-thirty in the morning and she installs brand-new locks on all the points of entry and his bedroom door, and then she sits with him on the couch and runs her fingers over his head and murmurs pretty things to him in Russian until he dozes off
i thought you were in thailand, sam mumbles, mostly asleep. or norway or, like, mars, you didn’t have to,
yeah, nat smiles, i got back a couple hours ago. the jet lag from mars is a bitch, i’m not even tired, don’t worry
Marvel took two Jewish-Romani characters and made them volunteer for experimentation by Nazi scientists
That’s it. There’s no justifying or excuses or story work arounds to be had. It doesn’t matter they aren’t Magneto’s children in the MCU. It doesn’t matter that they aren’t mutants. It doesn’t matter what reasons Agents of SHIELD or Cap 2 or Avengers 2 gives to try and distance Hydra from the Nazi party. It doesn’t matter what Pietro and Wanda Maximoff say or do in Age of Ultron.
Marvel made Jewish-Roman characters agree to be experimented on by Nazi scientists
That is an insult to every Jewish or Romani writer to ever work on a Marvel book, to every Jewish or Romani fan of comics who saw themselves in the Maximoffs, to every single survivor’s memory who walked away from the Holocaust to then have popular culture throw that narrative back at them and implicate the victim in the perpetrator’s scheme
I don’t even want to hear what excuses you or Marvel have to justify it
NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Please tell me that this is lies :.(
no lies, both aaron and elizabeth confirmed they volunteered, and aaron also used the g slur to identify the maximoffs
i’m incoherent with anger TBH
Does anyone have a link? Because if this is true, then I’m going to start rolling over in my proverbial grave… and possibly send whoever came up with (and whoever approved) this travesty to a grave of their own.
