Here is my contribution to this month’s LetsDrawSherlock alternate professions challenge in which our boys are zookeepers - or the Consulting Zoologist and the Veterinarian.
in the movie a little boy recognises steve at the captain america exhibit. it’s my headcanon that a little girl recognises bucky when he goes to the smithsonian exhibit to find out who he really is
because little girls have heroes too
"You should tie your hair back," a little girl with pitch-black hair says to the Winter Soldier. He stares down at her, silent, but she continues undeterred. "Mommy says that we need to have our hair tied back or we’ll trip over things because we can’t see. She makes me wear these—" She displays her wrist, which is encircled by a rainbow of different hair bands. "—because mine keep falling out. You can’t fight evil if you can’t see it. I want to be a police officer when I grow up. Are you a…"
She trails off, her eyes steadily getting bigger. They dart to the large digital image of James Buchanan Barnes, then back to his face. The Winter Soldier’s eyes dart, too, over the exits and the crowd and the girl’s distracted mother—attempting to corral three other black-haired children—before landing back on the girl’s face, where an improbable grin has begun to grow.
"I knew it," she whispers.
The Winter Soldier blinks down at her, thrown off by the delight in her expression. No one is ever happy to see the Soldier.
The girl reins in her wide grin and does her own scan of the crowd. “Don’t worry, I won’t tell. People can’t handle the truth. But I can.” She turns her shining eyes back to the Soldier.
Slowly, very slowly, the Soldier reaches out with hands that have broken, maimed, strangled, shot, stabbed, and ripped apart human flesh. His voice creaks out of him, rusty with disuse. “Can I have a hair tie?”
Without taking her eyes off him, the girl rolls a light blue one out of the rainbow and hands it over.

WHO WROTE WHAT BIT?
Ah. Another tricky one. As the official Keeper of the One True Copy, Terry physically wrote more of Draft 1 than Neil. But if 2,000 words are written down after a lot of excited shouting, it’s a moot point whose words they are. And, in any case, as a matter of honor both of them rewrote and footnoted the other guy’s stuff, and both can write passably in the other guy’s style. The Agnes Nutter scenes and the kids mostly originated with Terry, the Four Horsemen and anything with maggots started with Neil. Neil had the most influence on the opening, Terry on the ending. Apart from that, they just shouted excitedly a lot.
The point they both realised the text had wandered into its own world was in the basement of the old Gollancz books, where they’d got together to proofread the final copy, and Neil congratulated Terry on a line that Terry knew he hadn’t written, and Neil was certain that he hadn’t written either. They both privately suspect that at some point the book had started to generate text on its own, but neither of them will actually admit this publicly for fear of being thought odd.
Bunny falls asleep
bun didn’t actually fall asleep!! bunnies flop over like this when they feel safe and comfortable in their environment. they rarely stretch out and lay down because they’re prey animals, so when ur bun does completely lays on their side or their back, it means they feel 10000% safe around you
if i could i’d slow the whole world down
i’d bring it to its knees and stop it spinnin’ round
but as it is i’m climbin’ up an endless wall
no time at all

Friends; creators; internet denizens… it’s the third weekend of the month… so the Antidiogenes Club is running this weekend!
Here are the (copy-pasted) rules:
- Write as much as you can over the weekend.
That’s basically it. (If you’re new around these here parts, you probably want to read…
Hi y’all! This is a thing happening this weekend :) some logistical notes are over on the antidiogenes tumblr :)
I have found this super helpful and supportive and fun. If you are 18 or over, we have a fabulous couple of IRC chat rooms. AD is mostly writers but we do have artists and podcasters and folks too.
We’re mostly fan ficcers but we also have pro ficcers, dissertation writers, and first time writers.
It is super fun no matter if you are writing johnlock omegaverse, g rated Spuffy, a history of the Peloponnesian war, or some combination thereof. :) or whatever :)
I’m out like a scout and offline til later this afternoon bit I hope to see you around!
Whee, Antidiogenes weekend! Just what I need to lube the ol’ smut-writing channels… wait…
Yay! Time to get back on the fic-writing horse!
(The horse does the writing. I’m just there to supervise.)
