Well, since the serum is an enhancement, it’s unlikely to be passed through genetics (the doctors probably tested this, somehow, haha). Steve’s kids are more likely to inherit his asthma and weak stature.
OH MY GOD THO
A SINISTER GOVT EXPERIMENT TO CREATE AN ARMY OF TINY CAPTAIN AMERICAS
STEVE FINDS OUT ABOUT IT AT SOME POINT
AND IT’S BASICALLY ELEVEN TOW-HEADED, ASTHMATIC, ALLERGIC, IMMUNO-COMPROMISED LITTLE BEANPOLES WITH BAD ATTITUDES
SOCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE
LIKE IN A WAREHOUSE OR WHATEVER
WITH A COUPLE OF OVERWHELMED INTERNS BABYSITTING THEM
BECAUSE THE RESEARCHERS HAD ALL THEIR FUNDING TAKEN AWAY WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SECRET UBERMENCH CLONES TURNED OUT TO BE A BUNCH OF WEAKLINGS
AND NOBODY KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH THIS GAGGLE OF KIDS (WHO ARE SHRILL AND UNMANAGEABLE AND WHEEZE A LOT)
EXCEPT MAKE SURE THEY GET ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE AND REGULAR MEALS
AND REGRET THEIR IN RETROSPECT VERY OBVIOUS ERRORS
AND HOPE STEVE DOESN’T FIND OUT
WHICH OF COURSE HE DOES
BACK AT THE TOWER
EVERYONE’S INHALERS KEEP GETTING MIXED UP
THERE ARE COLORED PENCILS EVERYWHERE
A FISTFIGHT ABOUT THE NATURE OF JUSTICE ENSUES BETWEEN THE 9 YEAR OLD ONE AND ONE OF THE 11 YEAR OLDS
This. Is. My. Fetish.
Oh my God, though. Imagine the Winter Soldier, going through classified old SHIELD projects in search of more HYDRA targets to destroy, coming across that Warehouse. This warehouse full of little kids who look like… look like… The man on the bridge, he thinks, but that’s nonsense; the man on the bridge had been 200 pounds of deadly muscle, nothing at all like these skinny little kids with their fragile bones.
And then an intern spots him and all hell breaks loose, kids and handlers fleeing, leaving behind one little blonde boy who’s wheezing too hard to run.
The Winter Soldier stares, motionless. The boy looks back at him, scared and wheezing but too stubborn to cry; and suddenly the Winter Soldier knows what to do.
"I’m Bucky," he says, kneeling down in front of the boy. "Where’s your inhaler, kid?"
Uh, wait, I’m confused. Where are the other 20,000 words of this? *shakes post until more fic falls out*
BUT OMG BUCKY. Does he carefully make sure this boy gets somewhere safe and then go after all the others, because clearly anyone who would abandon a kid in his presence doesn’t deserve to be taking care of any children, ever?
guys you should watch this. They interviewed Leader an hour or few after the marathon. his part starts around 21:45 or so :) bovelby tomoyanagase piciu1 unffinityandbeyond tifak-sugar-chan tomoni-chan mtan110 kamenagase mrsmatsuoka casual-way <3
and you’ll see Leader’s reaction when he finally saw in person his childhood hero XD it’s funny and cute to see fanboy Joshima :D
Look, no-one said I was or wasn’t writing Coulson in Secret Avengers as gay. One beautiful thing about fiction is that we fill it with our own meanings. For example: was Coulson really created and written straight, instead of, let’s say, bisexual? How do you even do that unless you explicitly identify him as straight and choose to believe the character is telling the truth? You see my point? In case you don’t: fiction is infinitely malleable. There is no certainty, and there is no certainty in the universe, except perhaps change.
I sense a certain dose of entitlement in your request — which, by the way, says a lot about you and nothing about the fiction you consume. I don’t react to entitlement well, but I am transforming my initial reaction into something positive here, and perhaps you’ll use that as a guiding light for yourself, too. Perhaps the question you want to ask yourself is, “Why am I so hung up on my perception of a fictional character’s theoretically heterosexual identity, and does me being hung up on it have anything to do with my possible uncertainty regarding my own sexual identity?”
It might. It might not. U-decide.
