“Ha ha ha.” You rolled your eyes. Sometimes Stephens jokes could be amusing, maybe even endearing, but other times all you wanted was for him to keep them to himself. This was one of these days. Your head had been killing you all day. Pounding inside your skull. You’d tried to take your usual medications, to drink more water and rest, but nothing was working. You’d thought when you went to the actual doctor he’d be more sympathetic. “You’re soooo funny.”
“Thank you,” he smiled. “I know I am.” When you sighed, Stephen moved from his stack of books closer to you, more serious now. “I’m a good docror, too.” He said, holding up a slip of paper in front of your face. On it, in his chicken scratch handwriting, it said “migraine remedies”. He knew, from how long it had lasted, how intense the pain was and your sensitivity to light, that it wasn’t just a headache, but a migraine.

Although I’d love to see Stephen in a big event, I’m glad he’s not important this time. I’m quite afraid of Empyre for two good reasons: Dan Slott and the fact that Hulkling will be used as an antagonist, which is extremely harmful to his relationship with Wiccan. I really don’t want Stephen involved in this one. Not at all.
On the other hand, Strange Academy will feature many magic characters, which is very promising. Of course, Illyana would teach Inferno lessons hah. Surprising points for Man-Thing. The Ancient One will be a teacher? I figure he will appear in the form of a spirit? The post I made with the houses were not so wrong after all haha. I wonder which role Stephen will play here. Fingers crossed for him to be a regular character!
Since I need more content to judge the main series, I will pass this one as well.
And finally, Savage Avengers! Gerry is always rotating the team, it seems, but surprisingly Stephen will continue as a part of the journey. I’m very glad, despite the fact that Kulan Gath was not defeated. I really wonder what will happen after the whole Iron Mage thing. Too bad Victor is not around anymore.. Well, we can’t have it all, can we?
Summary: Set in the post Almost End of the World from Good Omens and the Post Infinity Wars from the MCU, Crowley and Aziraphale are living their lives as normal when suddenly they are summoned halfway across the galaxy to help deal with the pressing problem of one Galactus trying to consume everything in his path. However there is a small problem in the fact that the act of summoning cut them off from the source of their power. Will they gain their powers back in time to save the world yet again?
Text: There were so many things that Aziraphale and Crowley had lived through in their lives. The Fall from Grace, humans leaving the Garden of Eden, even the almost Apocalypse. However all of that paled in comparison to the current state of events. In fact had it not happened to them they would have sworn that it was only a fanciful tale told to them by a human who had imbibed too much.
However there was no deny that one minute the two of them were strolling through Piccadilly Circle and talking about how their day was and in the next they were aboard a spaceborn vessel of some kind. It took a few seconds to register that the scenery had changed, but when it did the conversation fell suddenly into an awkward silence as both the angel and the demon processed what was around them.
“Crowley?” Aziraphale asked slowly, looking at the burnished steel walls around him and trying to process if this was some avante garde art performance, “Did the lower side just do something to displace us?”
*going into the Stephen Strange tag looking for Stephen Strange content only to immediately catch sight of a T*ny gifset that uses a quote from the actual Bible that is about the fucking son of God, Jesus Christ himself*
For centuries, the sorcerers of the Sanctum have been the first line of defence for the Kings and Queens of Veston. Stephen, after becoming a Master of Time, wants nothing more than to join his fellow sorcerers in their task and pledge his life to the study of the Mystic Arts. Imagine his surprise when he gets assigned to protect the wilful prince Anthony, instead.
Dark secrets start to unravel and Mastery of Time will not be enough to save the kingdom, let alone Tony. While Tony has to overcome his own difficulties, Stephen must Master all six Aspects in order to do what he was always meant to do – no matter what both he and Tony might lose in the process.
Magic always requires a sacrifice, after all.
hi guys! I haven’t been able to post anything I’ve written on a03 in a while, but only because I’ve been working on this. I’ve got 76k written already so I promise regular updates :) It’ll end up somewhere just above 100k I estimate, so it’s gonna be a long read, with lots of slowburn to look forward to!
002 for ironstrange, clintasha and stucky. Is it too much for the same ask? You can just pick one of them 😁
Three is the magic number, no problems! The only thing is that I don’t ship clintasha romantically so it’ll be a bromantic thing (?)
002 | Ironstrange
when of if I started shipping it: Since 2016, aka when I watched Doctor Strange. At first, it was just because of the Sherlock inception thing. As a lot of you probably know, I’ve a thing about everything related to Sherlock Holmes, to the point when before DBH the only video game I’ve ever played which wasn’t The Sims was a Sherlock Holmes one (and Dante’s Inferno, but I’ve never finished that one). (If you need a confirmation @filvet knows ‘cause I’ve been bothering him with the Sherlock Inception - as I called the ship before - since I found out he was into Marvel). Though I’ve never looked for fics about them until I saw Infinity War. My brother doesn’t have a Tumblr so I can’t tag him, but he was seated by my side at the cinema and he knows that when Tony asks Stephen “why would you do that?” I kind of yelled in his ear “Because I love you, Tony”, which didn’t happen, but it would have been a great line. [sorry for the TMI]
my thoughts: I’ve known since the first moment I watched DS that their characters match wonderfully. And yet, they are different enough to call out each other bullshit and know when, instead, silence is the best way to face things. Another thing that had me immediately going for this ship is that them both know how much is important what they do (maybe for all the wrong reasons, aka proving they are not assholes), but still. They know that the superhero life is their second chance, and they need to prove it to themselves in the first place, and then to the others.
What makes me happy about them: All the potential banter and intelligent conversation, the possibility of lab scenes like the one with Tony and Bruce from AOU and also how they compensate each other.
What makes me sad about them: Endgame!
things done in fanfic that annoys me: Stephen portrayed as the weak one in the relationship, I think.
things I look for in fanfic: I don’t have preferences, as far as there’s a happy/bittersweet ending. Also seeing their psyche being deeply investigated. They are both so much more than they show, and I love when people go in deep.
My kinks: breathplay, bondage, D/s, pillow-talk in smutty fics. In general them taking care of each other.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Tony with Nat or Bruce (the ot4 is strong here), Stephen with Christine, Nat or Bruce.
My happily ever after for them: getting old together and happy
002 | Clintasha
when of if I started shipping it: I don’t ship them romantically, but I love their friendship since the first Avenger.
my thoughts: We probably never have the real story, but I’m super sure that Budapest is more related to Natasha saving Clint that not the other way around.
What makes me happy about them: the wholesome relationship Nat has with Clint’s family!
What makes me sad about them: Endgame once again.
things done in fanfic that annoys me: I never read fics about them
things I look for in fanfic: ^^^
My kinks: Ok, it’s not a kink in the real sense of the word, but I’d like to see them having a one-night-stand when they meet the first time and then deciding they work better as friends and Nat setting Clint up with Laura.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Nat with Tony, Bruce or Stephen (or the three of them), Clint with Laura.
My happily ever after for them: The little scene in AOU having a strong and durable sequel. Like Sunday lunches and Nat in the Bartons’ Christmas pic.
002 | Stucky
when of if I started shipping it: I’ve seen CA:TWA for the first time years after it has been released, so I actually started to ship them during TWS/CW
my thoughts: Is basically the only Steve ship I’ll ever accept because it’s clear that they have had feelings since they were in Brooklin.
What makes me happy about them: How they never give up on the other. I’d like to see some insight from Bucky’s pov of the time in Wakanda, when Steve was on the run, and they spoke via Skype, but I’m pretty sure this is something rooted deep in them. I also love how when they were younger was Bucky to take care of Steve and then how the things changed after Cap understood Bucky was the Winter Soldier.
What makes me sad about them: How Steve treated Bucky (and Sam) in Endgame
things done in fanfic that annoys me: While I love them, I’ve never read fics in which they are the main pair, so I can’t tell.
things I look for in fanfic: I’d love to see a fic in which they, especially Bucky, adapt in a world where same-sex relationships are accepted.
My kinks: the entire “we have super-serum induced stamina” thing!
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: Bucky (only platonically/not sexually) with Shuri or Tony, Steve with Thor.
My happily ever after for them: a double date with Sam and Sharon should be included in every possible happy ending. But the “real” one will be the one when Steve keeps being Captain America, but gives Bucky his shield and instead of going back in time decides to move in with him in some nice place in Brooklin.
