"And none of this is canon, so just relax."
You know your fans well.
Clint Barton — subby, ex-carnie white trash, spy — isn’t the kind of guy Captain America goes for. Nobody informed Captain America of this.
Sometimes I rec fics because I read them and immediately find them incandescently hot/emotionally compromising. Other times, I find myself thinking about a fic after a day, two days, a week, and I realize I have THINGS TO SAY.
This is one of those THINGS TO SAY fics.
Anyone in Avengers slash fandom already has read something of copperbadge's. (Lordy, if you haven't, I'm jealous. I want to Omega 13 my brain and start fresh.) This one is interesting, because talk about a rare pair!
And the kink … oh, goodness:
Service submission is like the spun sugar of the kink world, you know? It’s rare itself, and sweet, and it’s almost by necessity going to be a gently written fic. No one is being pushed to their knees—they’re being discovered already waiting there.
This is a lovely recc, thank you!
For readers, there’s more to the original post, but I wanted to reblog because I really love this bit: “No one is being pushed to their knees — they’re being discovered already waiting there.”
That’s a delightful way of putting it, and I think it highlights the difference for me between a kind of BDSM that is totally legit but not my bag, and the kind of kink that I enjoy writing. Inasmuch as power play and pain play and hurt/comfort can be, I like them to be gentle, and to be about the realization of the kink as much as the kink itself. It’s probably why I like writing service kink, because there’s a sort of requisite emotional factor that’s usually present in all kink but is not always found in writing about kink.
Anyway. That’s my two cents :D
I’ll bet he’s wishing it was an invisibility cloak.

leviathanbones said: Speakin as someone with a chronic uncurable condition that causes pain, that shit you're aware of ALL THE FUCKING TIME. I'm pretty sure Steve would've broken down and sobbed at least ONCE after the Serum because the idea of that pain being gone, of being able to move without your chest aching or your joints creaking or having to spend all day in bed because your spine bends the wrong way? That'd be such a shock, he wouldn't know what to do without it. He can lift things, breathe, do things.
Yo man i know, and it kinda bugs me when people just skim over that shit? like i have chronic pains (scoliosis and fucked knees and jaw), and like on the good days when i don’t have them, or it’s just super super mild, it’s noticeable. to have it suddenly cured completely? that would be a whole new kinda pain…
like imagine Steve Rogers, Captain America, still moving and thinking like he has these illnesses, holding back and stuff. like i saw a headcanon ages ago addressing him being unaware of the size of his body, like constantly running into things or hitting his head with cupboard doors, or accidentally hitting someone when he’s talking too loud with his hands coz he forgot how long his arms are and such and I was like “okay that’s awesome, but what about the shock of seeing everything perfectly and in perfect colour?” like in psychology we learned that it takes something like…three days for the brain to start perceiving things as right if you change a variable (as in, like say you hang upside-down for three days, it will look right-side up after three days, and when you go right-side up after that, everything will seem upside-down type thing i can’t check this fact rn so don’t quote me on it, i’m operating on knowledge i was taught 5 years ago at a public school), so imagine the three or so days after the serum of Steve dealing with perfect eyesight in all the right colours like…
we saw in TFA how much he struggled just how to figure out how to RUN properly. he practically had to relearn how to walk, now he has a quarter of a century of habits to erase coz he doesn’t need them anymore and I just…I imagine that Steve did cry at least once shortly after the serum, and not just coz Erskine died, but because this new body and the feelings and abilities that came with it is so overwhelming, even as it ‘matches’ his spirit, you know?
i kinda rambled. sorry. bwuh.
