In 1943, a team of ingenious Italian doctors invented a deadly, contagious virus called Syndrome K to protect Jews from annihilation. On October 16 of that year, as Nazis closed in to liquidate Rome’s Jewish ghetto, many runaways hid in the 450-year-old Fatebenefratelli Hospital. There, anti-Fascist doctors including Adriano Ossicini, Vittorio Sacerdoti and Giovanni Borromeo created a gruesome, imaginary disease.

“Syndrome K was put on patient papers to indicate that the sick person wasn’t sick at all, but Jewish” and in need of protection, Ossicini told Italian newspaper La Stampa last year. The “K” stood for Albert Kesselring and Herbert Kappler — two ruthless Nazi commanders.

The doctors instructed “patients” to cough very loudly and told Nazis that the disease was extremely dangerous, disfiguring and molto contagioso. Soldiers were so alarmed by the list of symptoms and incessant coughing that they left without inspecting the patients. It’s estimated that a few dozen lives were saved by this brilliant scheme.

The doctors were later honored for their heroic actions, and Fatebenefratelli Hospital was declared a “House of Life” by the International Raoul Wallenberg Foundation.

An architectural gardener :P

I tend to plan the larg structures and the main paths, but everything surrounding it (usually) grows organically.

A list of recommended Sam-positive fanfics and authors by @lunaaltare and @unclesteeb. For more information on how this list was created, click here. 

Just a special reminder to check out @samwilsonbirthdaybang! Let’s keep creating awesome works!

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this list in any way!! HAPPY READING!

Holy Grail of Sam FanFic Recs And Authors:

Dreadnought by lunaaltare [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 60k, Explicit]

It’s 2015. So when a Nazi organization bags and kidnaps a bisexual black man to be their next asset, he guesses they’re trying their hand at this whole progressive thing, too. 

Make Me Your Home by Unclesteeb [Sam/Steve, 3k, Teen]

Sometimes, things need more than dusting and cleaning. Sometimes, things just require a lot of hard work.

When There’s Rain Showers by AmarieMelody [Sam/Bucky, 12k, Explicit]

In which Sam and Bucky are married and have a certain code language.

Humor, fluff, more humor, and gratuitous smut at the end.

Heroes by Overlithe [Sam/Bucky, 29k, Explicit]

It’s their first day off in a month and after an exhausting mission all Sam wanted to do was to stay home instead of being dragged by Bucky on a tour of DC’s touristic highlights. But a superhero’s work is never done, especially not when there’s explosions, problems you can’t punch, and a screening of the Greatest Film of All Time.

A slice-of-costumed-hero-life story about loss and hope, the past and the future, and killer bird gifs. (Set a few years after TWS & CA:CW and featuring BuckyCap and FalCap. Also, they make out while in costume, which I feel is the most important part of this summary.)

All the Stars Right Out of the Sky by permashift [Sam/Bucky/Steve/T’Challa, 46k, Explicit]

No one said it, but it was there, big and fast and sort of scary, too fragile to yet handle.



Kestrel in Distress by bioloyg [Sam/Bucky, 17k, Explicit]

There’s a price to pay for being friends with the former Winter Soldier, but Steve was unavailable for comment so Sam’s ass is the one that ends up being kidnapped. And if that’s not bad enough, these guys expect Sam to roll over and give Bucky, and all his secrets, up without a fight.

Sam may hate the way Bucky sticks his spoon in the sugar after it’s been in his coffee, but he’s not about to throw a fellow vet under the bus. Not for his own life or anyone else’s.
“Sam lets a sharp breath out of his nose and squeezes his eyes shut until phosphenes explode behind his eyelids. He needs to keep a positive attitude. The moment he shows weakness to anyone, even himself, is the moment this all goes downhill.
As if it isn’t downhill already, Sam grumbles internally.”

When The Stars Align  by circ_bamboo [Sam/Bucky/Maria, 19k, Explicit]

“Who’s this guy?” the woman said, as she brushed strands of brown hair out of her face.

“Sam Wilson,” Sam said, but then the truck hit a bump, her bare fingers hit his forearm, and it felt like a star burst instead Sam’s head.

Our Dirty Little Secret by roane [Sam/Bucky, 3k, Explicit]

Sam didn’t plan to start a secret, torrid affair with the former Winter Soldier. It just sort of happened. Now he’s not sure what’s more likely to kill him: sex with Bucky Barnes, or Steve, when he finds out what Sam’s been up to.

Life is Hard, But Sweetheart We’re Gonna Make It by misspronounced [Sam/Bucky, 15k, Explicit]

In which Bucky fights in a war with Sam. They fall for one another and help each other through some tragic events that happen. A love conquers all sort of story.

full stops and exclamation marks by theshizniiit [Sam/Bucky, 9k, Explicit]

After Bucky is let out of cryo in Wakanda, he and Sam lay low in Seattle together. Shenanigans and feelings ensue. 

They might be doing this ‘getting together’ thing a bit backwards.

Your Eyes Are My Sunshine by patchwork_daydreams [Sam/Bucky, 10k, General]

“Can you pass me the last slice?” Bucky says, motioning to the box next to Sam.

He’s not sure what makes him do it – maybe some last ditch attempt to break this weirdness between them – but Sam picks up the remaining slice of pizza and stuffs the whole thing into his mouth.

“What last slice?” he asks thickly, through his mouthful of pizza crust.

A smile breaks onto Bucky’s face, and Sam thinks thank god. He holds his gaze, just a little too long, and is surprised when Bucky responds by glancing very deliberately down, running his eyes down Sam’s body. Holy fuck, what is this?

“Dick,” Bucky mutters after a moment, his eyes flicking back up to Sam’s face, and quirking an eyebrow.

so brand new by deedadoo [Sam/Bucky, 3k, Explicit]

“Two weeks,” Sam murmurs, breath hitching as Bucky pulls back to mouth at the sensitive spot on his jaw, “is too damn long.”

“I think I can make it worth the wait,” Bucky shoots back.

outrun my gun by biblionerd07 [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 2k, General]

After Sam gets hurt on a mission, Steve and Bucky spill some truths about how important he is to them.

A Typical Date by mikkimouse [Sam/Bucky, 700, Teen]

“You know, Barnes, just once I want you to take me on a damn date that doesn’t end with us getting shot at.”

that’s what you get for dreaming aloud by oh_no_oh_dear [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 80k, Explicit]

Steve likes Bucky (duh.) Bucky likes Steve (double-duh.) Sam likes Steve (kinda duh.) Steve likes Sam (who wouldn’t?) Bucky likes Sam (wat)

Sam…likes Bucky? (stop the madness)
The slowest of slow burns. Occasional angst. Much kissing ensues. Maybe more also ensues.

comedy jokes by hupsoonheng [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 76k, Explicit]

“I don’t know what some of these are,” you admit. “Should he be clean cut or a jock? Is Steve a daddy?”

bucky and natasha prank steve by installing grindr on his phone, complete with profile and push notifications. what they don’t expect is for steve to use the app as god and joel simkhai intended, which is to meet a male model, who happens to be named sam wilson. who also happens to be the dude who would not laugh once during bucky’s standup comedy set.

featuring sam wilson in crop tops, bucky barnes as wide beef, and natasha romanov in more than just a supporting role

Feel So Fine by Rubynye [Sam/Steve, 4k, Explicit]

Steve brings Sam some funch.

All I Ever Wanted by alby_mangroves and seratonation [Sam/Bucky, 14k, General]

Florist/tattooist AU. When Steve and Tony decide to get married Bucky and Natasha volunteer to organise the wedding for them. As it turns out the florist is one Sam Wilson and Bucky really didn’t stand a chance.

To Prove that I Love You by capgal and grainnemhaolx [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 5k, General]

Sam wakes up around 5.

Well, ‘wakes up’ may not quite be the correct word. It implies some form of sleep occurred prior to said waking up, which is not precisely true. It’s not that he didn’t get any rest at all, but the fretful drowsing-dozing he did is woefully inadequate to be called sleep.

It wasn’t nightmares or flashbacks that kept him up this time, staring up at the dark-shrouded ceiling with tired eyes. No, the nightmares have been scarce for a while, allowing him to get peaceful, uninterrupted sleep most nights. That peace may have something to do with the two bodies curled up next to him in the oversized bed they share. In the quiet, it’s easy to hear the soft sound of Steve’s gentle snoring. Bucky’s metal arm is a considerable but comfortable weight around his waist, skin-warmed and reassuring. It’s quiet. It’s calm. It’s peaceful and comfortable and happy.
Except, of course, the sleepless night.

keep me warm when Mondays and Tuesdays grow cold by OrginalCeenote [Sam/Steve, 20k, Explicit]

Sam could never deny Steve Rogers anything. Help interrogate a HYDRA mole inside SHIELD? Check. Fly as Steve’s wing man to stop three Helicarriers? Check. Give the Captain and his partner a place to lay low while HYDRA is trying to kill them? Check. Cover Steve’s six after an assassin rips out the steering wheel of his car while Sam’s driving it? Check.

So  maybe instead of making Sam look good in front of the girl at the VA reception desk, Steve decides to cover for Sam when they run into his ex while they’re running errands. Because maybe Steve Rogers couldn’t deny Sam Wilson anything either.

Til Death by bamsucky [Sam/Bucky, 4k, Explicit]

A few near-death experiences make Bucky further realise that he wants Sam, always and forever.

Mine or Yours by LeMera [Sam/Steve, Sam/Bucky, 31k, Explicit]

The morning after, Steve pretended like nothing happened, which felt like a punch in the gut. They were off to find Bucky. That was all Steve would talk about. Bucky, Bucky, Bucky. Sam was going to fucking kill Bucky when they found him, if the guy didn’t kill them first.

Just to be clear, this is not OT3.

A yet more glorious day by Sororising [Sam/Steve, 5k, Teen]

Helen hums to herself. “I know. Who’s the most married out of all the Avengers?”

“Sam and Steve, obviously,” Sharon says, winking at Steve in a very unsubtle way.

“As someone who has observed them from the very beginning,” Nat says with authority, and Steve winces as he remembers getting into her car right after meeting Sam. He’d been unable to stop himself from telling Nat about him, which he should have known was a horrible idea that would come back to haunt him.

“I concur,” Nat continues, flourishing her drink in a violent way that somehow manages to avoid spilling a drop. “Old Cap and New Cap are definitely the most married.”

Empty by rc1788 [Sam/Bucky, 5k, Explicit]

Sam is pissed off because Bucky has been eating all the food in the fridge at the Avengers compound. But Sam’s even more pissed that Bucky’s been quiet lately.

AKA Sam and Bucky ignore their feelings and fuck in the back of a car in the Denny’s parking lot.

Sunday by SayWhaaat [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 2k, Teen]

Sam loves his boyfriends. There is no ifs, ands or buts about it, because it’s simple and unconditional and true; Sam loves his boyfriends. However, pure and unstoppable love does not exclude them from the fact that they’re weird and annoying as fuck at 5:30 in the morning. 

sea-cold, sea-cold it certainly is by dirtybinary [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 6k, Teen]

“I didn’t know it was like this,” Sam says. “You coming off ice, I mean.”

“So don’t wake me up every time Steve stubs his toe,” Bucky says, without any heat. It’s always good to see Sam. He’s not sure if he’s ever said so. “What’s the emergency now?”

Bucky knows that going back on ice is for the best. Steve and Sam beg to differ. There are tears and cuddles and explosions, and some truly awful puns.

Coffee and Cliches  by Chaneladdict [Sam/Steve, 3k, Teen]

Steve has a crush on the running guy with the cute butt. The running guy is about to get hit on in the form of a sarcastic awkward super soldier. This is just your every day Meet Cute.

A Fine and Wholesome Direction of Energy by adi_rotynd [Sam/Steve, 18k, General]

Or: Bucky Barnes Is Definitely Probably Not Stealing Steve Rogers’s Boyfriend

Music For The Soul by DiefaceJohnson [Sam/Steve, 8k, Mature]

Five times that people get an inside peek at Sam and Steve’s relationship through music and one time that someone sees more than they bargained for (though they’re certainly not complaining).

Coffee & TV by lorax [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 4k, Mature]

The fact that he knew their coffee orders was the least weird part of that day.

The Favor of the King by thingswithwings [Sam/T’Challa, 18k, Explicit]

T'Challa – King T'Challa of Wakanda, the Black Panther, Guy Who Dresses Up Like a Cat to Fight Crime or Possibly for Other Reasons, Who the Fuck Knows – T'Challa corners Sam during one of their visits to check in on Bucky and says, in a mild voice that should not sound as threatening as it does, “We need to talk.”

“We do, huh,” Sam says, looking him up and down. He’s just a king and a superhero and a genius inventor and possibly the richest man alive, looking way too fine and wearing the hell out of a tailored three-piece suit; Sam can hold his own against this guy.

Personal Growth by FunkyinFishnet [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 7k, Teen]

Bucky lets himself get found by Sam and Steve. Sam gets to know how he feels about both of them. He invites them to move in with him, they all need the company and stability, they all need to keep watch.

I Get By (With a Little Help) by rivlee [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 9k, Teen]

It’s been seven months since Bucky Barnes came back from the proverbial dead, and Sam’s life is still full of surprises. (And not just the kind that come from Natasha Romanoff.)

Showtime! Under the Stars! by APgeeksout [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 1k, Teen]

Sam, trying to make a little nostalgic fun for his guys.

Love Me Tender by Kellyscams [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 2k, Explicit]

After a long, emotionally stressful weekend, Sam returns home to find a lovely surprise waiting for him. 

Crash Standing by phaetonschariot [Sam/Bucky, 26k, Mature]

The Winter Soldier project was not the last of its kind. Several months after the collapse of SHIELD, Bucky wants to come in from the cold, and he’s bringing the Falcon with him.

You Make Me Feel Like I Could Fly by discreetmath [Sam/Rhodey, 6k, Explicit]

The first time Sam meets Jim, their timing is terrible, and the next time seems like it’s just more of the same. Maybe if they learned to use their words better, it wouldn’t take a giant cephalopod to put them on the road to getting it together.

Unexpected Houseguest by faeryn [Sam/Bucky, 20k, Mature]

When Sam comes across Bucky in the strangest of places, his first instincts are to run, and to call Steve. He does neither, and in doing so manages to form a strange bond with the Soviet assassin who once tried to kill him. Bucky is broken, a shell of his former self, and Sam wants nothing more than to help return him to himself. But can he maintain a respectable and responsible distance from the man, despite how Bucky draws him in, in order to help him? Or will he falter, and shatter all the progress he has made by giving in to his own desires?

If Only in My Dreams by pollinia [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 2k, Mature]

Sam buzzed in next. Steve Rogers, acting shy? I’m not so sure I’m really sexting the Star-Spangled Man with a Plan.

Partition by invincibleironwoman [Sam/Bucky, 3k, Mature]

It’s been three weeks. Three long weeks and Bucky really missed his boyfriend.

When It’s Over We Can Begin by captainafroelf [Sam/Bucky, 4k, Teen]

 Steve’s gone, leaving Sam and Bucky to pick up the pieces.

The Butterfly Effect by morituritesalutant [Sam/Bucky, 26k, Mature]

Bucky is 16 years old and has been ‘gifted’ with the ability of hearing the truth behind people’s lies. It has made him bitter, distrustful, alienated, traumatised. Most of all, he’s getting sick of trying to hide it out of fear he’ll be discovered. When a new student arrives that refuses to speak, he quickly becomes obsessed with becoming the stranger’s friend, (but really, he wants more.)

Kiss the Cook by Avakelly [Sam/Bucky/Rhodey, 6k, Teen]

“You have no idea what you’re doing,” Rhodey concludes.

Sam crosses his arms and raises his chin. He won’t go down without a fight.

The smirk on Rhodey, though, turns into a small smile, and he pulls out his phone. “Don’t worry,” he says as he waits for a call to connect, “we’ll help. Hey,” he speaks into the mic, “you alone? Uh-huh. That’s close. Ditch Rogers and come early. Need you. All right, see you in twenty.”

This is Exactly Where I Want to Be by kajmere [Sam/Bucky, 4k, General]

Sam doesn’t think Bucky and him are quite at the sentimental gift giving stage of their friendship, so he settles on the first Falcon themed merchandise he spots.

Steve laughs in his face and tells him he is going to regret this.

Sam does.

 A Snowball Running by prettylittlementirosa [Sam/Bucky, 2k, Teen]

Bucky shrugs with one shoulder, the good shoulder. He’s not really sure how to explain that he doesn’t like the guy because he was talking to Sam, making him laugh- that that should’ve been Bucky. Even as he thinks it, it sounds ridiculous. He has no claim over Sam, and really, it shouldn’t matter who’s making Sam laugh, just so long as he’s happy. God, Bucky wants him to be happy.

Shared Interests by Jeangenie [Sam/Steve/Bucky/Thor, 6k, Explicit]

Sam gets to know Thor and Bucky a little better. Steve is thrilled.

Vulnerable by sixnumbers [Sam/Steve, 4k, Explicit]

Sam Wilson is a man who want to feel safe in another’s arms. Steve Rogers, he finds, wants exactly the same.

Not Yet by vassalady [Sam/Steve, 2k, Explicit]

Steve is always going at high speed compared to Sam, so they decide to slow things down in the bedroom, Steve forced to hold off until after Sam comes.

Long Way Down by baamon5evr [Sam/Steve, 21k, Explicit]

Steve does not want to be involved with people. He’s already dealing with a zombie apocalypse and the fact that he can see and speak to his dead friends. Then Sam comes into the picture and changes everything.

The Brooklyn Holiday by theladyking [Sam/Steve, 6k, Teen]

“Hopefully we’ll be seeing more of each other,” Steve said before stepping out of the way. Sam nodded and nearly ran out the room and into the cooler hallway to catch his breath.

Luckily no one was around to see him, a grown ass man, squeal in embarrassment.

#SayIdo Series by mrs_d [Sam/Steve, 52k, Teen-Explicit]

“Excuse me,” Sam cut in. He couldn’t take another minute of this. “Their relationship? What about our relationship? Nobody’s speculating about that?”

Stuffy Noses (strep throat, swollen eyes) by destroyallmonsters [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 3k, General]

 “Ugh,” is all Sam can say. “I miss Mama’s chicken soup right now.”

“The be-all, cure-all,” Sarah muses. “Jesus, you look terrible. Aren’t your boyfriends helping you out any?”
Oh, boy, are they ever.

Sweetest Hangover by dreamkiller [Sam/Steve, 3k, Teen]

Sam wakes up on a Friday in April, with the mother lode of hangovers, in a bed that’s not his own.

Good Boy by marvelidiot [Sam/Steve, 2k, Explicit]

Sam and Steve’s first time.

Forward Momentum by abysmal_seraph [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 14k, Explicit]

There’s a lot more to Sam Wilson than meets the eye. Unfortunately, he has no idea what he is and those who do mean him nothing but harm.

Let Lose, Let Go by diefacejohnson [Sam/Bucky, 1k, Explicit]

Sam and Bucky are doin’ it.

Anniversary, Approximately by the_genderman [Samsteve, 1k, Explicit]

Really, just an excuse to write some Steve/Sam smut. Enjoy.

Fortitude by ToriCeratops [Sam/Bucky, 1k, Explicit]

Bucky doesn’t know when the shift from ‘safe place to crash’ towards ‘home’ happened, but he knew it was all Sam.

Never Letting Go by aceofhearts88 [Sam/Steve, 5k, Explicit]

Steve doesn’t like how quiet Sam has gotten on the plane, he doesn’t like the distant look and the shivering. All he wants is to take him away, to bring him somewhere where he can keep him safe, where they can be alone. His veins are burning with the need to comfort Sam, to show him that they were safe, that he got out, that it all would be okay now.

They were together again. And Steve would give all love to Sam now.

A Couple Guys and a Kid by unclesteeb [Sam/Steve/Bucky/Natasha, 45k, Explicit]

Slices of life with Uncle Bucky, Uncle Sam, Daddy Steve, Baby Sarah and Natasha as they figure out life, healing, growing up and love.

Maybe Home is Somewhere I’m Going by Astolat [Sam/Steve, 11k, Explicit]

They were about fifty miles from Atlanta when Sam stirred and yawned awake in the passenger seat. “Morning,” Steve said: the sun had come up, but the two-lane road was still pretty empty, a little morning mist hanging low over the asphalt and in the trees.

The Best of Men by iwillnotbecaged [Sam/Bucky, 14k, Explicit]

Steve and Peggy are getting married, and Steve wants his two best friends by his side. The only problem? They kind of hate each other.

That Time the Bifrost Threw a Tantrum (and something good came out of it) by bananawombat [Sam/Thor, 1k, General]

Sam wakes up to an alien in his backyard.

 Monsters Lead Me Home by robpatFF [Sam/Steve, 3k, Explicit]

They make it to a safehouse.

Sam thinks, hopes it’s a safehouse. Steve bullies him through the front door, so all Sam can catch in a bid to take in as much of the landscape and escape routes as possible (because fuck if Sam is letting himself get caught again. His wrists are still red and tender, and there’s a bruise that takes up the expanse of his left side that Steve will never, ever know about) is winding roads, lush, green grass and tulips of all things growing at the end of long, never-ending stalks.

Make a Thing Go Right by Hansbekhart [Sam/Bucky, 100k, Explicit]

Sam meets Steve Rogers and Bucky Barnes on a Thursday night, at a burlesque show, and how it happens is this:

It’s already late, later than he should be out on a weeknight, but the theme of the show was a super hero revue and there was no way he was gonna miss that. It’s loud in the venue, which is the back space of what probably used to be a warehouse right near the Gowanus Canal, and Sam’s already had a few. He’s up at the bar during the break, watching the act. He doesn’t hear someone say, “Behind!” so when he steps away from the bar, he smashes right into the guy who’d just done the Captain America routine up on stage, and knocks his drinks to the ground.


Or, I wanted to see more stories that captured the weirdness and complexity of being queer, in your late 20s, and trying to date in Brooklyn - which is my life - so I wrote one. Takes place in the MCU.

All I Can Do is Just Pour Some Tea for Two by onvavoir [Sam & Bucky, 3k, General]

My belated contribution to Samtember, in which Sam Wilson is the one being taken care of.

It’s a Moon Thing by hermioneismydawg [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 7k, Explicit]

So it’s not like Sam is charting this moon shit. At least, not at first. See it goes like this - full moon Steve’s horny as shit, new moon he’s a ragey little bitch, the waning cycles are emotional, and the waxing he is just his normal sassy self. Without even looking back at records, Sam knows now that he met Steve during a waxing crescent and the Winter Soldier reared his messy head during waning gibbous.

Sam’s practically an astronomer now, for fuck’s sake.

Captain Hornball pops up again, right on schedule, and Sam decides to do something about it.

In which Sam Wilson discovers the effects of the moon on enhanced super-soldiers and has a lot of sex thanks to it.

Croatian Holiday by Brenda [Sam/Natasha, 2k, Teen]

“So, wait, are you telling me all this was some sort of recruitment?”

“No, it was a test.” She didn’t say whether or not he passed. Sam guessed the fact that he was still breathing was answer enough.

Close Air Support by Gothams_Only_Wolf [Sam/Bucky, Sam/Bucky/Natasha, 6k, Teen]

Sometimes the soul needs to heal before taking to the skies again.

A Fledgling Thing by Snarklyboojum [Sam/Steve/Bucky, 24k, Teen]

They say ‘a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush’ but Sam has pretty big hands and he’d prefer the birds to keep their beaks out of his love life, thanks.

True story: I went to a shitty private highschool that was also a boarding school, which was attended by this kind of squishy pompous russian kid named Anatoliy. Anatoliy didn’t have much going for him socially in most regards, and most of the students mocked him overtly for his accent, as well as for his shoes (which were very ugly indeed). Most of the kids who’d get picked on just kind of accepted their assignations to the lowest grueling rung, but Anatoliy was not going to stand for this. Anatoliy had a plan.

One day, in US history, an argument arose about the constitution, which of course almost nobody had done the reading on. I was sitting across the room (facing the clock and the door, as always), and was therefore granted the unique pleasure of watching his ascension unfold. As the argument grew lengthier and more desperately convoluted, led by a few of the more egocentric jocks whose grades were most reliant on participation points, the rest of us, including the incompetent teacher, sat back in exasperation. Anatoliy, who in fact often participated in discussions, but never seriously (every statement was opened with “let me practice my english”), remained silent. He merely sat back and steepled his fingers, a faint smile creeping across his lips. 

As the dickwaving reached a fever pitch, he stood up and slammed his fist on the table. The room went DEAD SILENT. 

“ALL OF YOU ARE WRONG,” he proclaimed, and proceeded to extract a copy of the constitution of the united states of america from the inside breast pocket of his blazer, and read us the very passage that definitively answered the question that everyone had been arguing about.

The class went SILENT, and then roared with applause. Nobody ever disrespected that kid again.

Listen. It’s common knowledge among the villains of the world. If you’re anywhere close to being a professional Badguy, then you’ve heard the stories. You know the rumours.

Tony Stark Does Not Die. So for God’s sake, do not be stupid enough to try.

Some of the newbies, they ask. They wonder why no-one tries to shoot a fatal hit, why they never even bother to go for Iron Man. 

The older, more weary villains just roll their eyes and mutter “don’t wanna waste my firepower. Save your shots for the ones that will actually stay dead, kid,”

“That asshole crawled out of a cave with a hole in his chest and still managed to kick everyone’s ass,” someone pipes up moodily from the corner.

There’s a sudden bang as a hand slaps on the counter, and the newbie turns to see another grim-looking villain.“I once shot straight through him. Laser right through the stomach. You know what that piece of shit did?” The guy gestures to his lack of foot. “He Goddamn turned around and shot my leg off! and then he just sort of looked down and shrugged at his own fatal wound. He told me I had it worse, and that he was ‘sorry’. Who even does that?”

“I crushed him,” says another, “he just buried out the other way and then caught me a day later. It took me years to get out of prison.”

“I planted a virus in his suit while he was thousands of miles above sea, and not only did he defend it, but he traced my source and sent it back. Thousands and thousands of dollar’s worth of tech, gone,” someone shouts miserably from across the room. “He didn’t even have a fucking keyboard! Every line of code was verbal! He spoke and memorised those lines faster than I could type them, and I goddamn invented the thing!”

A bottle of… something, flies across the room. Obviously everyone is very bitter about this.

The newbie, because they’re always like this at the start; over-confident and stiflingly cocky, puffs their chest and looks them all in the eye. “you just haven’t been thinking about it hard enough. I’ll kill him. Just watch.”

Everyone descends into hysterical laughter. Someone is crying. No one in the room is Okay. 

“Whatever you say, whatever you think or plan, he’s one step ahead. Don’t, for your sake, please. Take Thor. Or Cap. Or maybe the Widow, if you’re feeling brave? But just… don’t waste your time with him. Try and keep him away, instead. That’s all we can ask for,” says someone next to her, obviously taking pity.

“He might be smart, but he’ll have no idea what’s coming when I step on the scene!” Newbie growls. “Listen-”

A few miles across, Tony Stark listens to the whole conversation via a bug he planted in the known Villain Hiding-Spot, and smiles smugly.

“Damn straight,” he mutters, before calling in the rest of the Avengers to gloat.

NASA: we used to have 9 planets but we now only have 8Pluto: Stop telling everyone I’m not a planet!NASA: Sometimes we can still hear its voice

Look, I’m not saying that demoting a planet named after the Roman god of Death stoked his rage and brought down on us his vengeful fury and retribution but…

*gestures at everything*

Finally, an explanation.

Wonder Woman isn’t the only deity anymore.  Eugene Brave Rock, who plays Chief in DC’s blockbuster film Wonder Woman, looks to have confirmed one of the movie’s big secrets: Chief is a demi-god.

Indian Country Today previously reported a little-known detail about Wonder Woman’s first encounter with Chief, one of the men recruited by Steve Trevor to help Wonder Woman on her mission.  The two of them first addressed each other in the Blackfoot language, a native language of the Americas spoken by about 8,000 people in northern Montana and southern Alberta, Canada.  It was the only language that wasn’t subtitled in the film, which makes this next part kind of amazing.  During their chat, Chief introduced himself as Napi, a Blackfoot demi-god.

Napi, known as Old Man, is the culture hero of the Blackfoot tribe.  He was the first man made by the Creator, and he helped shape the world and its people, along with his wife, Kipitaki.  As Moviepilot pointed out, Napi’s origin story is unique in the creation mythos.  Rather than being benevolent or kind, Napi is a troublesome trickster, showing how the natural world cannot be controlled.

This could’ve easily been an inside joke for the audience, but Brave Rock told io9 on Twitter that Chief is, in fact, Napi.  And even though director Patty Jenkins gave Brave Rock a lot of creative freedom with the character, Chief’s introduction wasn’t improvised.  Brave Rock said his reveal as Napi was a bonafide part of the script.  It makes sense when you consider that Chief is the first person Diana shakes hands with, even though she’s presented with the opportunity several times beforehand with other people.

This doesn’t necessarily mean Napi will be a larger part of the DCEU in the future (although that would be pretty awesome), but it’s exciting to see another side of Chief and his place in Wonder Woman’s world.



Awesome seeing some proper Native culture representation.


This means he is one character from the films supporting cast (Besides the immortal Amazons of course) who could be brought back for the sequel set in the present day, since a god isn’t going to have to worry about getting older
