"Come on," Bucky said into the growing silence. "Ain’t you gonna tell me I look nice?"

My attempt at Bucky from this fic. I don’t believe he had garters in it, but I thought they’d look nice anyways.

:D :D :D

Do I want to participate in the Multifandom Extreme Big Bang? I have a story I think is going to run over 100,000 words, and the timeline seems reasonably realistic—I’ll even have time to wrangle it into Age of Ultron compliance if that turns out to be a thing I care about after seeing Age of Ultron—but I just don’t know.

Are y’all still going to be interested in the Saga of Bucky’s Dick next summer?

I’m quite certain that I’d read the hell out of a 100 k Bucky fic written by you next summer even if I’ve moved on from the fandom by then. Tell us more about the plot? :D?

Um.

*eyes outline*

Plot. Yes. Um. I did say it’s The Saga of Bucky’s Dick, right?

It’s Hydra-trash-party-adjacent, in that it’s very much a story of Bucky’s recovery from systematic dehumanization that included rape and sexual abuse—and Bucky will probably remember and even relive some of that at various points in the story—but everything happening in the actual timeline of the story is consensual, if not always 100% safe or sane or clearly negotiated.

I just really like the slice of the trash party that deals with Bucky having non-standard sexual needs after everything he’s been through, and Steve figuring out how to give Bucky what he needs. In this story, the central idea is that Bucky’s dick is nonfunctional outside of circumstances that closely resemble the way Hydra treated him—which isn’t a way Steve ever wants to treat him and isn’t something Bucky is thrilled about experiencing again, but without that Bucky genuinely cannot get off. 

…Except, since this is me, the story actually begins with Steve catching up with Bucky and getting him to come in from the cold to the loving arms of… the US Army. I am almost five thousand words into the story, Bucky is in the Army, Steve is nowhere to be seen, and it has sort of vaguely occurred to Bucky that sex is a thing that was part of his life in the past and possibly could be again at some point in the future. Don’t ask me how many Wikipedia tabs I opened in the process of describing the top shelf of the bookcase in Bucky’s barracks.

There are at least twelve sex scenes (or scenes including an attempt at sex) in the outline.

I like assuming that it’s going to be about a hundred thousand words long because I have written hundred thousand word stories in a reasonable timeframe without repeatedly breaking down in tears or writing myself straight out of the fandom and/or pairing in question. So let’s go with that theory! A hundred thousand words! Yeah! This won’t be horrible at all! I will still like Bucky AND Steve when I finish!

Anyway, there you go. Plot! That’s a plot, right?

Grindr users on Scottish independence

I’ve spent the past couple of days asking several hundred Grindr users in Edinburgh whether they believe Scotland should be an independent country. Replies were of variable quality. Here is a representative sample:

STATISTICS:

The number of people I’ve questioned who are still present in my Grindr message history – that is, excluding the many people who blocked me – appears to add up to 655. I’ve divided their reactions into…


NO: 114

YES: 101

Undecided: 24

Other opinion: 20

Indifference: 15

Evasion: 38

Bemusement: 13

Amusement: 2

Too horny to answer: 6

General rejection: 4

Did not respond: 318


So there you have it. When only decisive opinions are taken into account, Grindr votes NO to independence, with a 54-46% split. If this is reflected in the results of tomorrow’s referendum, we can assume the headless torsos have taken over Scotland and there’s nothing you can do to stop it.


(The eagerly anticipated machotrouts.tumblr.com endorsement goes to a YES vote. I am a headful torso.)

Vital citizen journalism.

By far the best thing I’ve seen in re: Scottish independence. This is, indeed, vital citizen journalism.

consider this: 

thor is always running into little kids who are thrilled to meet him - he doesn’t really understand the concept of signing autographs, but he starts carrying asgardian toys around in his pockets to give to kids he meets (much to shield’s chagrin - how are we supposed to keep alien tech under control when the god of thunder is giving out magnetic propulsion toys to five-year-olds?) 

but one day, he meets this girl who’s nine, maybe ten, and she runs up to him all misty-eyed and immediately asks him if he knows jane foster

and her mother’s embarrassed because “honey, that’s thor, aren’t you excited to see thor?” but the girl just explains that she wants to be a scientist when she grows up, and that jane foster is the astrophysicist (she pronounces the word carefully, as if she’s been practicing) who found out how the rainbow bridge worked - isn’t that so cool? she read about it in kids discover and they watched a documentary in school and dr. foster was in it and it made her think that maybe because she likes planets so much she could be a scientist, too 

and thor smiles broadly and tells her that wanting to be a scientist is a noble dream, and he says “if your mother would be willing, i could introduce you” 

and that’s how jane foster ends up with a tiny science geek in pigtails trailing around behind her in her lab, asking how everything works. jane can’t really comprehend the fact that a kid would want to meet her, but she likes explaining things and she looks at this girl and can’t help seeing herself. thor is just fucking delighted because to him the idea of jane being a child’s hero makes perfect sense, why wouldn’t it? she’s jane

and years later the girl grows up to be an astrophysicist or an astronaut or an aerospace engineer and she never forgets the time that dr. jane foster knelt down beside her and said, don’t let anybody stop you from chasing the stars, if that’s what you want 

jane foster inspiring girls in science, y/y
