Exceptional Black Panther by Mitch Gerads!
Excuse me but why did we not get this duo with this look in the movies???
Evacuate the city…
Engage all defences…
And get this man a car radio
1 hour later:
Chitauri soldier: *sobbing* I guess I wanted to find my purpose in life
They talk during the drive; about the different projects, about their training. T'Challa complains about Shuri blackmailing him with some footage of a test with the Black Panther suit gone wrong. (A distant voice at the back of Zemo’s mind tries to point out that maybe the conversation flows a little too easily, points out that he is not meant to actually enjoy this.)
“Are you sure you don’t want any guards with you?” T'Challa asks after the car stops and Zemo gets out.
Knowing they’d rather choose be eaten alive by a hyena than to be stuck alone with him, Zemo assures him there is no need. “I’ll be fine. Go, or you’ll be late.”
T'Challa is reluctant to leave.

T'Challa: They say white people don’t have their own culture, but I was just invited to a gender reveal party for a dog and there is no way they appropriated that from anyone else.
Enemies to Lovers: Loki (b/c its fucking Loki you hate and love him)
Slow Burn: T'Challa (I would literally never act on it nor assume he’d have feelings until he legitimately says it)
Fake Date: Bambam (We’re such memes and good friends that we don’t even realize that we actually like each other until it’s too late)
