I HAVE THREE WORDS THAT WILL BRING JOY TO YOUR HEART:

#all brooms fly like 3 feet off the ground#the bludgers are stuffed animals#keepers often get distracted by clouds#the seekers are better at playing tag than catching the snitch#games are over when it’s naptime

Everyone talks about Bucky/Steve, but let’s talk about Bucky/Sam.
Sam who knows nothing about Bucky except the stories Steve’s told him about before the war and the steering wheel ripped from his car and the wings ripped from his back and the bullets that shredded the air around him and he follows Steve on the road to find him anyway.
Sam who knows better than Steve ever could how to talk to Bucky because it’s what he does, it’s his passion, it’s what he’s trained to do. It’s what he did every day at the VA with thousands of people.
Sam who knows how much war changes you, who isn’t stuck in the past like Steve has the tendency to be, who takes Bucky as he is now rather than old memories of what he was like before seventy years of torture and brainwashing and murder and blood.
Sam who slowly warms up to Bucky as Bucky comes back into himself, and who Bucky grows to trust because Sam is there at every step nudging him toward being a human again rather than a machine and because he grows to know that Sam never thought of him as anything but human.
Sam who sleeps on Bucky’s floor sometimes so that he can wake Bucky up in the middle of nightmares and crawl into bed next to Bucky and hold him if he needs to or give him space if he needs to because he knows that sometimes the best thing for someone is space.
Sam who helps Bucky relearn how to feel things because he knows Bucky’s nerves are deadened from pain and pleasure from years of torture and overuse, and has no expectations of how his body used to work, only a growing understanding of how it works now.
Sam who is willing to hurt Bucky if he needs to be hurt, because Bucky swears up the side of the wall that it’s what he needs, because Steve can’t always bring himself to do what’s necessary when it comes to Bucky getting hurt, but Sam knows that it’s necessary to heal so he does what he has to do.
Sam who can stop Bucky when he needs to be stopped, because Steve can’t always bring himself to do what’s necessary still, but Sam knows that if he barks orders loud enough, maybe Steve can snap out of it and help him wrench the gun out of Bucky’s hands, no matter which of the four of them it’s pointed at.
Sam who probably heals the Steve/Bucky dynamic more than anything, by helping Bucky learn to trust people and by helping Steve to understand that they’re not in the 1940s anymore, that the man Bucky used to be is gone and will never be the man Bucky is now, that his pre-war ideals of his best friend can’t be used as a guideline to shape a shell of a human being because it’s not possible, or right, and it’s selfish to try to mold Bucky into a poor facsimile of what he used to be, no matter how badly Steve wants his best friend back.
Sam who gives Bucky a spare bedroom and food and clothes and comfort and the harsh words he sometimes needs to get to recovery because Steve wants it to be easy but Sam knows that it never is.
Let’s talk about Bucky/Sam.

in Teen Titans we don’t say “I love you” we say “I like the way you shoot starbolts” which roughly translates to “batman never taught me how to talk to girls and that’s sadly the best compliment I could manage” and I think that’s beautiful.-cyborg-window-hallucination

If you want, I can copy paste everything we've written and submit it to you. And if you're still up for prompts: Between all six of the Avengers, they've eaten some WEIRD stuff. So when they find out that Tron has a very limited diet, they take it upon themselves to find something else Tron can eat. Tony and Bruce are all scientific about it, comparing calorie contents and making charts, Clint makes all sorts of weird dishes, and Cap makes the simple stuff his mom used to make when he was sick
(If you would, I’d be very grateful. I’m just going to go ahead and publish this one, though…)
One of the first steps of the Science Bros’ Scientific Food Method is breaking something he CAN eat into its component parts, which takes a bit of time. The first thing they try (as in, the easiest to acquire) is a spoonful of the monosaccharide glucose in syrup form.
Tron makes a terrible face at it, and completely mystifies the pair of them for a solid week.
After seeing Bruce and Tony’s lack of success, Clint hands Tron a bowl of unflavored popcorn, juice from a habanero chile, black licorice, salted cod, arugula salad, a sour cherry pastry, almond butter, and as a joke because of something Sam Flynn mentioned in passing, a pint of motor oil. Sure, Clint wasn’t a genius or anything, but he was pretty good at spotting patterns, so tried to hit as many major flavor types as possible (salty, sweet, sour, bitter, hot, nutty, anise-y) and a couple different grains (corn and wheat).
Tron had had to physically remove himself from the almond butter, even before he could taste it, and Clint had to remove himself when Tron tried - and seemed to like, or at least not dislike or completely avoid - the habanero juice and motor oil, and then mixed them together.
Everyone who heard about it became equally traumatized, so they all agreed that those ones didn’t count.
At this point the Science Bros try again, this time with esters. They fail, unfortunately, but are treated to the strange sight of Tron’s eyes ‘watering’ as he flees the lab, leaking two thin trails of liquid energy, which still noticeably glowed, even in their bright surroundings.
Steve’s success is sort of an accident; he’d heard about the bad reaction Tron had had to the last attempt, and came by to apologize for the Science Bros and make sure the program was okay. Tron said he would be fine, but Steve offered to help him wash the remaining esters out of his eyes with the sprayer attached to the kitchen sink.
Steve helps Tron get situated at the sink - even though the water occasionally makes an odd sizzle noise if it splatters onto a circuit - and resumes making lunch while watching over him. There isn’t a whole lot to do while rinsing out one’s eyes, so Tron ends up asking about the peculiar but pleasant smell in the kitchen.
And so, after Tron’s eyes have been thoroughly cleaned out, he tries his first bite of an old Irish stew that’s probably about half cabbage, with a bit of barley, potato, and tallow.
When Sam Wilson comes by to accompany Steve to a meeting in a couple hours, he finds the two of them talking over soup about Steve’s mother making something delicious out of nothing like a human SHIVA laser analogue, in a room that practically reeks of cooked cabbage.
"Man, you weren’t kidding about the ‘boiling everything’ bit, were you?"
Steve just smiles and offers Sam a bowl; Sam pretends to make a fuss for a moment, but joins them with a smile.
OH GOD IT’S PERFECT
