✪Steve grinned at Bucky from his spot laying on the sofa despite the fact that he probably looked downright terrible with his skin all pale and clammy. He was running a fever and a cool cloth wasn’t doing much for it. Even though he’d been coughing all night miserably, the sight of Bucky was all the medicine he could’ve asked for.
“Hey, Buck,” he said, his smile beatific until he started to cough again violently.
When he finally got his coughing fit under control, he looked up and murmured, “Sorry. I ran out of that awful-tasting tonic and I don’t have any more credit at the drugstore.” He shrugged. He needed to find a new job—one that actually paid enough to keep him out of hock for a change.

✪Steve pushed at the noodles and a lone tree of broccoli still on his plate and shrugged. “Leftover Chinese. You want some?” He pointed with the tines of his fork toward the boxes over on the counter. He’d left them out since he thought he might want more if it didn’t taste terrible.
You never knew around there how fresh the leftovers were goint to be but he still hated wastefulness—a depression-era holdover he couldn’t seem to let go of—so he often ate what the others deemed “too old.”
‘Like me,’ he’d joke back as he dug in. Luckily, his sense of smell was significantly better since the serum and he could tell if anything was off enough to make anyone sick, himself included—though, granted, that would take a much more significant number of microbes that, as yet, he’d never experienced.
Come to think of it, he doubted if he’d ever get over wartime rationing, either. He still breathed a silent thank-you over every cup of coffee with sugar that he drank.
Something random I decided to do. My favorites starters of each Pokemon Generations.
Obvious. This is best starter after all. Charmander was cool (before they started treating him like a golden child) and Squirtle was okay (not a bad design but he’d kind of just a turtle) but I had no Idea what this dude was. And that’s what drew me to him. His design was the most unique. The fact that he was awesome in the show too was icing on the cake.
Another design based choice. I could never get behind Chikorita (still think it’s ugly) and Totodile was just meh. But I thought Cyndaquil looked pretty cool, and based off of his later evolutions I chose right. It just looked way more impressive than the others. Easily the most cool looking of the three.
Gen III is where the grass types won me back! I had always favored grass type pokemone anyway, and Treeko looked cool, was a beast in the anime, and had the best final evolution. Mudkip was okay, but I’m not a fan of it’s later evolutions. They were just meh. And I know everyone went crazy of Torchic, and even I think it’s cute and everything, but it never wowed me and I was even less impressed with it’s evolutions that I was with Mudkip’s…
Turtwig has a pretty cool design from the start, a solid middle evolution, and an awesome final evolution. I’ve always been a fan of the bulky tank type pokemon and I could tell off the bat this was going to be one of them, so I was sold. Piplup has a pretty appealing designs, but it’s evolutions are super fugly. Chimchar was fine but, just not as good as Turtwig. it was also the start of their god awful track record with their fire starters…
God I wished I had stuck with grass this gen. I chose Tepig because I thought he’d have the bulky tank thing going, and he did but… he was awful. His middle design was just embarrassingly bad and his final wasn’t much better. I just didn’t care of Oshawott all that much. But Snivy was just awesome and had some slick looking evolutions to boot. Even my brother (who almost always goes with fire types) picked it over Tepig… like I should have…
Another starter I wished I had picked. Chespin was cool from the start, but his later evolutions were awful. Froakie has a pretty cute start and some solid middle and final evolutions. They’ll all pretty cool. As for the fire fox one (don’t know it’s name and it’s not worth looking it up) it’s ugly from start to finish.
I was honestly pretty surprised that I liked all three of the designs for this generation, even their middle and final evolutions. (I do wish they’d freaking stop with the fire/fighting type though. I know Incineroar isn’t a fighting type but… c’mon, he’s a freaking wrestler…) But Rowlett won me over from the get go. Just look at this fluffy round boi! How can you not love him?!
Look at him! Look at this adorable little monkey boi! Again, I liked all three of the initial designs, but Grookey middle and final evolution cemented him as my favorite. Sobble if really adorable in it’s first form, but it’s evolutions are… not good. Especially the final one. Scorbunny first form is fine, it’s middle evolution looks sort of weird, and it’s final evolution is alright. It just doesn’t have anything on my boy Rillaboom!
Well, there you go! Please remember that this is just my opinion, so if you’re favorite starter got crapped on here… grow better taste…
Although she did not show it – and although her world had crumbled around her – the lost demigoddess was ailing on the inside. Her pain, true, her heart, aching. She was without her father, her mother, her adopted brother, and she was barely getting to know her half-brother… but it was strained. Her feelings were strained. Not to mention… she had nearly lost Achilles. She supposed it was good that she lived by the seashore now – a place she had wanted to go for so long.
Here, she could think and be without trouble. ( Even if Vai occupied a settlement next door. )
Sensing everyone going about their day as usual, Ava finds herself sneaking out to the shoreline with the sky just starting to darken and the stars beginning to come out. Pausing and slipping her shoes off, she lets the water wash over her feet. Cold, it was, but not uncomfortable.
Sadly, she could not hear anyone behind her – or those that might attempt to approach.
Felicity was on her way home from school when she heard the stranger’s voice. She turned around just as she was about to go up the steps to her porch. “Can I help you?” she asked, only hearing part of what the stranger had said. “I’m a little busy at the moment…”
Clara has met Muse B during her time traveling/dimension travels. Clara and Muse B become close and are soon friends with benefits. Clara makes regular visits to Muse B’s time period/dimension for their get togethers. Their meetings become more frequent and they start to realize there may be more to their situation, but they have to face the problem of being from different times/dimensions.
Then we could simply go from there and plot more if you want or let it flow on its own.
