Request: Hey! Are you willing to write a Carol x R involving a best friend who was separated from other best friend for whatever reason (maybe a childhood crush and homophobic parents? idk) and then both grew up and ran into each other, reconnected/fell in love for real? possible plot twist, with R being on the Avengers, but disappearing during snap, and Carol doesn’t find out its R until during or after the final battle? please make it angsty w/fluff
A/N: I created collages for a ton of my fav series, hope you guys like them.
“Do you remember anything?” Maria asked as Carol looked through the pictures, most of them of Carol and Maria together, some with Monica too. You looked through the pictures for something from her childhood, anything.
“No, just flashes.” Carol answered, still looking through them for something, some connection to you.
“What about this?” You asked softly, holding up a picture from when the two of you were kids, it was the Fourth of July and both of you had flags and were sticking your tongues out at each other.
“No, is that you?” Carol asked, taking the photo from you, fingers brushing against yours. You nodded, Carol smiled at you before Monica came running in from her jacket.
Everyone talked for a while more before everyone decided to go after the skrulls, you followed them into the spaceship, that was until Carol turned around and stopped you, her hands dead set on your shoulders.
“What are you doing?” You asked, frowning as Carol’s hazel eyes pierced your own. “I’m going with you.” You sipped some water through the Starbucks cup you were carrying with you.
“No you’re not, go with Monica.” Carol stated, you groaned, you knew how to defend yourself better than anyone.
“Yeah, no.” You answered, shoving past Carol, a little frustrated and walked into the spaceship.
“Y/n, I need you to stay behind and protect them.” Carol argued as the ship’s door closed, Maria fed up with the two of you arguing.
“And I’m telling you no,” You answered, sitting down next to Fury and looking up stubbornly at Carol, putting your cup in the small mug holder on the side.
“Somehow I remember you still being stubborn before.” Carol muttered, heading into the cockpit seat, you rolled your eyes and started playing with Goose.
Everyone flew up there without any problems, finding the base was a bit of a problem but Carol solved it quickly and flew everyone into the giant ship. Talos seemed more eager than anyone to go inside, children and everyone came out instantly after he said it was safe.
You watched Carol apologize to them, you could see the guilt of her previous actions eating her alive. You put one hand on her shoulder when she finished, she nodded at you and went further, only to be taken down by the kree.
You tried to defend her, partially out of care for her, partially because the one named Minerva blew up your favorite starbucks cup. They knocked you out instead.
You awoke when you were on the spaceship headed home, barely registering anything around you before you saw one of the guards aim a blast at Talos, you instantly jumped in front of the blast. Now your head was throbbing and so was your side.
“Y/N!” Maria yelled from the cockpit, about to rush over to you.
“I’m fine.” You groaned, resting against the hull of the spaceship. “Just get us the hell out of here.”
“Yes ma’am.” Fury joked, you smiled weakly and watched as the plane took off.
“Y/n,” Talos said softly, calling your attention towards him. “Thank you, I barely even know you but thank you.”
“Anytime man.” You joked weakly, holding your hand up for a high five, you realized he didn’t know what you were gesturing to and put your hand down.
Maria skilfully maneuvered the ship to get rid of Minerva, you were honestly happy when her ship went down, at least she can’t blow up your starbucks mug again.
“Thanks for avenging my starbucks cup Maria!” You yelled.
“You still drink from that cup?!” Maria shouted back at you, you laughed weakly.
“Drank, she blew it up, it was my favorite anyway.” You heard Fury and Maria laugh before you fell asleep again out of sheer exhaustion.
This time, you awoke in better circumstances, in one of Maria’s spare rooms in new clothes. It was one of Maria’s old t-shirts, your jeans and a blanket was on top of you. You yawned loudly, smiling at the glass of water and aspirin before taking one, making a mental note to thank Maria.
You hobbled downstairs, the wound still hurting. Instead of a normal bullet wound, it was more like a large burn which someone had bandaged, it still hurt a lot.
“Hey, you shouldn’t be out of bed yet.” Carol chastised, wearing a black t-shirt and jeans, you smiled and waved her off.
“I’m fine, better than Fury.” You joked after looking at his eye, you guessed it was Goose, but you knew he would cover it up to make it more dramatic.
“I think I’m gonna head outside.” You gestured to the door, needing some fresh air. Carol nodded and followed you out.
“So, what now?” You asked Carol, leaning forward against the railing and letting the wind blow your hair out of your face. Carol leaned sideways against the railing, looking at you.
“I’m leaving to help the skrulls find a new home.” Carol answered, a bit stiffly when she realized that meant leaving you, she looked down at her feet and took in a deep breath. “You?”
“Not sure, Fury is probably gonna start something after seeing we aren’t alone, chances are he would want me with him.” You answered, looking at Carol, who looked incredibly confused.
“Are you guys…?” Carol gestured inside to where Fury was and back to you, hazel eyes glinting in the moonlight with confusion.
“Oh god no, I’m lesbian anyway.” You answered, trying to suggest something, Carol laughed, her smile seeming a bit brighter than usual to you.
“I think I remember you now,” Carol thought aloud, you looked at her in shock, she nodded and chuckled slightly. “Yep, I remember you from when we were kids, you moved away when we were 9 though.”
“You can blame my parents for that, I never wanted to leave you.” You answered, eyes widening as you realized what you just said.
“I don’t want to leave you either.” Carol muttered, just loud enough for you to hear, Carol moved to lean backwards on the railing, looking inside. “When I’m with you, I don’t know why but I just feel more like myself, rather than some hero or some undead pilot.”
“I mean you’re definitely more than an undead pilot.” You joked, blushing at her words, Carol smacked you lightly on the arm. “I get what you mean though, I feel the same but not the undead hero part.”
Carol smiled at you, you moved so you were in a position similar to Carol and you could lean back against the railing. Your hand gently brushed against Carol’s before you could pull away, she linked your hands together gently.
“Can I kiss you?” She blurted, the hand holding yours came up to cover her mouth when she realized what she said.
“That’s definitely the first time someone’s asked for permission.” You joked, turning around to face her. “But yes, you can.”
Carol grinned and hesitantly leaned forwards, stopping an inch away from your face, hazel eyes looking over your features as her breath mingled with yours. You leaned in, lips barely brushing over hers as you waited for her to make the first move, and she did.
You kissed back almost immediately, her hand coming up to cup your face instantly, your hand went to her hair, gently running your hands through it as your lips moved in sync with hers.
“I meant to ask you to do the dishes,” Maria said from the doorway, smirking with hands on her hips, you broke apart instantly, flustered as hell. “But it looks like you’re busy.”
“No, no it’s fine.” You answered, quickly ducking in the door to help, avoiding her gaze.
Maria smirked at Carol, nodding her head from side to side as she joined Carol on the porch.
“Childhood crushes never go away do they?” Maria asked, Carol sighed, even though it had been five years, Maria still knew her better than anyone.
“Guess not.” Carol answered softly, watching you talk to Monica for a bit before going inside to do the dishes. Carol moved to go join you but Maria stopped her.
“Take care of her, she’s been through a lot.” Maria stated, then added. “Don’t make her wait longer than she has to.”
Carol knew what she was talking about, not the dishes. Maria knew Carol would be away for weeks sometimes, Maria just didn’t want her best friend to be left waiting again. Carol wasn’t planning on making you wait, she was never going to, she needed you more than you needed her.
