Untitled Avengers drabble (2015-09-26)

Bennet’s in the middle of inputting data–and he’s going to be honest, he really enjoys it, it’s soothing–when the small television they have running as background noise suddenly changes from soap operas to BREAKING NEWS.

It’s… it’s basically a war zone. In New York. With aliens and superheroes and–“Dr. Ross? I think you need to see this,”–a giant green rage monster.

Her mouth twists, no doubt a confusing jumble of concern and elation whirling about in her mind, “Tell the university we’re taking a sabbatical, Bennet,” she says, and he immediately has his email open, drafting a sorry-not-sorry-we’re-leaving-for-a-while, “We’re going to Manhattan.”

He and Riley were like brothers, so it stands to reason that Riley’s little shit of a protege would translate as something like a stubborn punk of a nephew.

“‘Sup Uncle Sam?” Bingley says with that combination of infuriating smile and raised eyebrow that Sam knows always both amused and pissed of Riley, “You mind if I stay for a few days?”

Sam rolls his eyes at the complete lack of heads up, but lets the kid come in anyway. Later, when Captain America and the Black Widow appear on his doorstep he’s both proud and worried at how easily Bingley steps up to offer help.

Family sticks together, after all.

The thing about the Avengers Tower is that it’s still a skyscraper. It’s massive. And maybe Tony Stark is accustomed to living opulently, but an entire floor for one person? That’s kind of ridiculous.

Okay, sure, Thor literally lived in a space castle, so he’s probably used to even more luxury. But as far as Darcy can tell, he’s accepting close quarter living as a given for Midguardian culture. And considering his two instances of Earth living were 1) Puente Antiguo, in which Jane lived in an RV and 2) London. Enough said.

So it’s not unexpected that the Avengers each invite other people to live on their designated floors. Hawkeye brings an absolutely adorable dog and a teenage girl who also, confusingly, answers to the name Hawkeye. The Captain has his own avian-themed not-sidekick, and no doubt his frozen BFF will be brought in, too, whenever they actually find him.

Thor invites Jane, who invites Darcy; no surprise there.

What is a surprise is, a few days after moving in, after Darcy’s unpacked all of her stuff and decides to explore her new home, she bumps into her siblings.

A/N: Oooh, switching from DC to Marvel. Whaaaaaaat? No worries, I love all my children equally. 😛

Here’s a quickly thrown together drabble based on this Fake Fic Summary, in which Darcy is a triplet with Bennet (as played by Jesse Eisenberg) as her brother and Bingley (as played by Kristen Stewart) as her agender sibling.

To be honest, I’m still not sure if I want Bingley to be attached to Sam Wilson’s story line or James Rhodes’. I mean, either way, Bingley is in the Air Force, but I’m not too sure what route I want to take for this. If I were to continue this.

Fake Fic Summaries, 1/? (2015-06-23)

Fic I would maybe like to write/read and their fake summaries:

—–

“When Scott has no idea what the hell is going on, he goes to Stiles.

When Stiles has no idea what the hell is going on? He goes to Harley.”

Maybe it’s a Stiles-gets-bit story, maybe it’s a Stiles-has-magic-that-activates-pre-Scott-getting-bit, maybe it’s entirely AU. Who knows?

Or, whatever allowed Rebecca “Harley” Harlowe to survive three seasons of supernatural bullshit must be something really helpful. Like common sense.

Seriously, she has a speaking role and a full name and she’s in multiple scenes in the FIRST EPISODE. Sure, we never see her again, but I like to think that’s because she knows to steer clear of all the dumb melodramatic danger.

I enjoy this fic’s characterization of her, though if I were to write the above, my version of Harley would probably be slightly different. By which I mean, slightly less ruthless. Not that that part isn’t enjoyable, but because in order for Harley to help out Stiles she’d have to be willing to do so.

Basically, I have a great appreciation for Harley. Or rather, what Harley could have and should have been.

—–

“Darcy frequently talks about the time she knocked out an alien god with her taser and had her iPod stolen by a ‘vague, yet menacing, government agency’ because

a) she’s a fan of Welcome to Night Vale and cannot help but liken her experience with Thor to the series

b) regardless, it is the second most interesting thing about her life

and

c) her taser and iPod never stop talking about it, either.

(Or, in which Darcy Lewis is a technopath)”

I’ve been reading a lot of Darcy-centric fic recently, and while I do love her as our stand-in normal human, I love her as a character more. And I’d like to see what a non-superhero/villain with powers would look like next to the Avengers, some who are superhuman and others just human.

I wouldn’t actually want her to be related to Tony/Magneto/Xavier either? Just… you know… a random mutant who happens to intern for the scientist who makes first contact with Asguardians. And even though she would be a technopath and it’d make ~science~ easy for her, I’d still want her to be poli-sci major, same as the movies, Darcy. Just that she can talk to machines.

A/N: Not really a drabble, not really brainstorming. I present to you the first of (probably) many fake fic summaries!
