Running Through Rose Thorns

Warnings: angst, fluff

Summary: you and Steve on the run also you’re tony’s daughter 

A/N: inspired by Miss Americana and the Heartbreak Prince by @taylorswift this song screams nomad Steve to me :D

——

“There’s no decision-making process here. We need to be put in check! Whatever form that takes, I’m game. If we can’t accept limitations, if we’re boundary-less, we’re no better than the bad guys.”

“Tony, someone dies on your watch, you don’t give up.”

Who said we’re giving up?” 

“We are if we’re not taking responsibility for our actions. This document just shifts the blames.” What a fucking headache. Where were the wise men? The stupid UN wanted you guys to sign this document that would no longer make the Avengers a private organization. You weren’t sure how you felt about it.

“I’m sorry, Steve, that is dangerously arrogant. This is the United Nations we’re talking about. It’s not the World Security Council, it’s not SHIELD, it’s not Hydra.”

“No, but it’s run by people with agendas, and agendas change.”

“That’s good. That’s why I’m here. When I realized what my weapons were capable of in the wrong hands, I shut it down and stop manufacturing.”

Tony, you chose to do that. If we sign this, we surrender our right to choose. What if this panel sends us somewhere we don’t think we should go? What if there is somewhere we need to go, and they don’t let us? We may not be perfect, but the safest hands are still our own.”

“If we don’t do this now, it’s gonna be done to us later. That’s the fact. That won’t be pretty.” The bickering between your father and your boyfriend continued. Your head fell to your hands and you massaged your temples. 

“Y/N?” Steve noticed your anxiousness.

“What?” 

“What do you think?” Your dad asked. Great. You pretended to think for a second and then spoke.

“I think you’re all annoying and giving me a migraine.” 

“I think that too!” Nat chimed in.

“Come on Y/N, this is serious.” You rolled your eyes at Steve.

“Fine, I think everyone needs to calm down and take a chill pill. There has to be some middle ground that we can negotiate with the UN. I don’t think we should just blindly sign it, but we shouldn’t put up a huge resistance either. It was only a matter of time before something like this happened.” 

~~~

That night, you and Steve further discussed the Accords in your room.

“So are you going to Vienna?” You sat on the edge of your bed and pondered Steve’s question. The decision was extra difficult for you because you had your dad and boyfriend on different sides. You could feel a storm brewing whether you decided to sign the document or not. Whatever you chose, you’d upset one of them. Steve anxiously waited for your answer while he sat in the chair in the corner of your room. His eyes were full of hope and love; how could you disappoint him? 

“No.”

“Really?”

“Ya. I’m not going to go.” Steve ran over to you and hugged you.

“You know, I adore you, right?”  

“I know.” 

“I’m crazier for you than I was in ‘41, lost in the film scene. Waving homecoming queens with the marching band playing, I was lost in the lights.”

“I know Steve. The pictures are pretty funny though.” You pulled out your phone and showed him your home screen. It was a picture of Steve in his blue tights on a stage with girls all around him.

“Where’d you get that?”

“The Internet. Ever heard of it?”

“Ha-ha very funny.”

“Well, have you? Have you heard of it? It’s okay, I’ll have plenty of time to teach you during our retirement.” Steve was visibly concerned by that word. Retirement was something he never even dreamt of having the privilege of. He’d always assumed he’d carry on the mantle of Captain America until the day he dies. 

”Right, retirement.” Would Steve really retire though? How long would he last before he had to get involved in something. It wasn’t really his fault though, if Steve saw a situation pointed south, he couldn’t ignore it. 

“Well it is about time, you are one hundred so…”

“Can you stop it with the old jokes?”

“Never.”

~~~

Well, Steve lasted a solid twenty four hours before he got entangled in the Bucharest disaster. Retirement was now out of the question. American glory quickly faded before Steve’s eyes as the world turned its back on Steve. No cameras caught his pageant smile nor his muffled cries. All they caught was him breaking the “law.” Soon, his team lost a fight against your dad and your friends at the Airport, but Steve was able to escape with Bucky. Battered and bruised, they made their way to Siberia. Steve could see the high fives between the bad guys and figured out that the psychologist was behind everything. If only your dad would have listened… 

“If you just sign the document Y/N, all this can go away.” You definitely didn’t expect Tony to show up at the RAFT prison, where you were being held. He tried to talk to you through the glass, but you couldn’t bear to look at him, not after what he’d done to Steve. He’d turned him into a war criminal. If he just had some faith in you, and in Steve, he could’ve seen the truth. That Bucky didn’t do anything wrong and that he was the victim, that situations like this were the exact reason the Avengers should not agree to the Accords.

~~~

Time passed and there was no word from Tony or Steve. You’d assumed Steve would break you out of here, but maybe you were wrong. You counted days passed, you counted miles paced in your cell, until you saw Steve standing there. 

“Sorry doll, I know it’s been a long time coming but-” Steve unlocked the cell and you ran into his arms. After a warm moment of embrace, Steve unlocked the rest of the group’s cells. Scott and Clint decided to go home and stay on house arrest for the sake of their families. But the rest of you…you saw the scoreboard and ran for your life. 

~~~

You weren’t sure where you were. Latvia maybe? Natasha had some contacts from her Red Room days that provided safe houses.

“Darling? I’m scared.” You whispered under your breath. It was a miracle Steve heard it.

“I know, I’m sorry.”

“Don’t be. I chose this, but I’m still scared.”

“But you don’t have to choose this. I think you should go home.” Steve didn’t want you to go, but he knew that was what would be best for you.

“Absolutely not. It’s you and me. That’s my whole world.”

“Y/N, you’re throwing your life away.” 

“I don’t care Steve. It’s the right thing to do. The whole world is rolling fake dice right now. Besides, it’s you and me, there’s nothing like this.”

~~~

Life on the run was weird. You had to be undercover every second of every day. It was about a month after the airport fiasco and the news was still having a field day with you guys. American stories were burning before Steve. He wouldn’t be surprised if history textbooks were rewritten to exclude him. 

“Captain America, once an American hero, is now a war criminal. Oh how the times have changed! He should’ve stayed in the ice if you ask me!”

“Agreed! And that Y/N Stark, she’s a bad, bad girl! Her father must be so disappointed in her! But I can’t say I’m surprised. I voted her most likely to run away with Captain Rogers.” 

“They’ve been dating for how long now?”

“I don’t know, a year or so?” 

“Oh wow, that seems very out of character for Y/N. Captain America and the Heartbreak Princess. What an unlikely pair. I honestly feel bad for the both of them.” 

“Same here. Well, you know what they say. You play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.” Two male reporters went back and forth on the television. Boys will be boys, you thought and rolled your eyes. Steve told everyone not to listen to the news but you couldn’t help it. Truth be told, Steve stayed even more up to date with the news than any of you did, just so he knew what was going on in the world. But lately, all anyone had been saying was how much they hate him and his group of runaways.

The hate wasn’t new for you though. Being the daughter of Tony Stark automatically put you in the spotlight. You were used to the attention, and to people saying horrid things about you. The media portrayed you as some girl who sleeps around and drinks too much at parties, and claimed you weren’t worthy of the (formerly) beloved Captain America. Part of you agreed with them, who could possibly be worthy of his love? You felt beyond fortunate that you settled down with Steve and that he put up with your oftentimes chaotic nonsense. 

~~~

“Steve? What are you doing?” In the midst of his borderline tantrum, Steve glanced up at you, his long hair and new beard falling beautifully out of place. He held his ripped up uniform was in his hands. 

“I- I don’t know, I just…” Steve didn’t even know what came over him. Pent up anger? Exhaustion? Boredom? His Captain America suit was ruined, shredded into five pieces. 

“Steve, what’s going on? Are you-” 

“I don’t want to talk about it.” With that, he dropped the ravaged uniform on the ground and left. Steve was feeling hopeless. He gave his life to that uniform only for it to turn around and betray him, bringing down the people he loves with it. Steve didn’t know this, but you kept the torn suit and stitched it back together. Wanda taught you how to sew while on the run, and you were pretty good at it. Eventually, all this would be over, right? The time would come and Steve would want it back. When he was ready to wear the stars and stripes again, it’d be here for him. 

~~~

A year on the run had taken a toll on all of you, but it showed differently on everyone. Steve was always checking up on you, Nat, Sam, and Wanda, but you were the only one who seemed to care how Steve was doing. 

Everyone handled the new way of life differently. Nat stayed relatively the same; she was used to watching her back. Sam seemed to get more annoying by the day. Wanda got a lot quieter, you presumed that she missed Vision. It took a while for you to get to this point, but eventually you felt like you’d been ripped away from your life, which you kind of were. You knew you chose this and you didn’t regret your decision at all, but that didn’t mean you didn’t get upset about it from time to time. Unfortunately, Steve was helpless when his damsel fell into an occasional depression. 

“Y/N? Oh god.” Steve caught you crying and shuffled over to your side. He immediately wrapped his arms around you.

“Shhh, it’s you and me Y/N.” Steve would never let it show, but he was just as upset as you were. Being a nomad was so hard. You missed your dad. Steve missed his home. You were both so sad you would have painted an entire town blue. 

“You should know that I’ll never let you go Y/N, okay?” You nodded against Steve’s shoulder. Amidst all the anguish that being on the run brought, you always had Steve. You never once regretted your decision to run with him. You both felt like you were running through rose thorns, but who else would you rather run with than Steve? This will all have to end at some point, you told yourself. But did you really believe that? You didn’t quite know, but you knew Steve needed to hear it. 

“Someday we’re going to win this fight Steve, I know it.”

Both Wanda & me need therapy after this episode

Vision was/is truly husband goals.

I honestly don’t think Agatha is truly the villain I think she wants to help Wanda get back to her true self to fight the big bad 🤔

Hayward is the true villain. A greedy white bastard. If Tony was alive he would never let that shit happen. Seeing Vision body ripped apart like that to become weaponized really hurt me and that white bastard knew it would hurt Wanda seeing him like that and still allowed her in. Now he wants to revamp Vision to go against Wanda.A SICK FUCK!

I’m ready to see Hayward head get bite off

MARVEL STUDIOS I’LL FIGHT THE BUILDING, THE CREW MEMBERS (EVEN THE WATER BOY/GIRL) AND THE WRITERS IF WANDA DOESNT GET HER VISION BACK.


Also there was Loki reference in there..if you know you know….

Is It Enough?

Warnings: angst, fluff 

Summary: reader wonders if she is enough for Steve

A/N: based on peace by @taylorswift, also this is super short :) 

——

“Steve?” He shifted in bed to look at you. 

“Ya?” It had been weighing on you for a while. Steve was this perfect man, filled with so much honor and dignity. He deserved nothing but the best, and in your eyes, you weren’t the best. How could you be worthy of his love? When he wasn’t with you, Steve was out, quite literally saving the world. He should be able to come home to a woman who offer him something he rarely could find: peace.

“You and I, we’ve been going out for a while now.”

“Almost two years doll.”

“Right, so you know, our coming of age has kind of, come and gone.” Steve nodded along but his mind was racing. Where were you going with this?

“And uhh, suddenly this summer, it’s clear to me.”

“What is?”

“Well, I’ve putting this off or a while kind of. I guess I’ve never really had the courage of my convictions as long as danger or whatever, is near.”

“What are you getting at Y/N?”

“Well I just-”

“Y/N…”

“Would it be enough if I could never give you peace?” Steve breathed a sigh of relief, then tensed up again.

“What are you talking about? You-”

“Please just let me get this out Steve. It’s been on my mind for a while.” With a bit of hesitation, Steve let you continue.

“Obviously, you’re this, amazing man who is unbelievably handsome and incredibly talented, and I’m me. You draw sketches of flowers in your journal and paint dreamscapes on the wall, and I watch Netflix. They say you’re like America’s golden boy and I have to say, you do live up to that standard, whether you like it or not.” Steve shrugged and inhaled like he was about to say something, but you interrupted.

“Your integrity makes me seem small. I talk shit with Nat and Wanda; it’s like I’m wasting your honor.” Steve took in what you had to say. Although he thought it was silly, he listened because it mattered to you. 

“And you know that I’d swing with you for the fences, sit with you in the trenches. Literally though, sometimes we do sit together in trenches on missions.”

“Y/N, you don’t have to-.”

“I’d give you everything I can Steve, I’d give you my wild. I’d give you the silence that only comes when two people understand each other, family that I chose now that I see your family as mine, as Bucky as my brother. I’d even give you a child. But is it enough?” Steve wanted to speak but he had a feeling you weren’t done yet.

“Because there’s robbers to the east and clowns to the west. You know as well as I do how things can get so crazy sometimes. But I’d give you my sunshine and give you my best, but the rain is always going to come if you’re standing with me.” It wasn’t really your fault; you couldn’t control how anxious you got sometimes. It was always just around the corner because it lived in you. You couldn’t help but get into your own head sometimes and psych yourself out, usually resulting in a fight between you and Steve. Self doubt and fear clouded your judgement and induced your anxiety.

“I told you not worry about any of that Y/N. I love you. You’re the fire that keeps my brittle heart warm. When my cascade ocean wave blues come, you’re the one who picks me up.”  

“But is it enough? People talk and have their opinions and-”

“I don’t care what anyone says, they might all think our love’s for show, but I would die for you in secret. The devil may be in the details because ya, we’re not perfect, but you’ve got a friend in me Y/N. You are more than enough, you’re everything that I could ever hope for.”

I was bored and couldn’t sleep so I wrote another Taylor inspired one shot cause what else would I do

Wanda Maximoff
Agatha, I just have one comment before we have our superhero-supervillain ending battle. You are aware that my brother looks nothing like-
Agatha Harkness
-okay, yes, I know, I know! Here's the thing. It's really, really, really difficult trying to find another version of Pietro Maximoff in the multiverse that happens to look like Aaron Taylor Johnson.
Wanda Maximoff
Aaron Taylor who now-
Agatha Harkness
-darling, apparently, everyone's alternate universe versions are very different looking! Like, just to test out the Nexus of All Realities, I tried to find another Spider-Man who looks like Tom Holland. However, the one I pulled looked like Tobey Maguire! And then when I tried again, I got Andrew Garfield!
Wanda Maximoff
...you're saying things that don't make any sense to me.
