Stiles slumps low in the booth and lets his eyes drift slowly closed. “C’mon,” Scott says, soft, somewhere hovering above him. “Don’t punk out on me before you’ve at least had one drink, baby. We’re celebrating! Stiles! Seriously.”
"We’re celebrating you,” Kira says, much closer and much more petulant. “Wake up, asshole.”
“‘m awake.” Stiles props his eyes open and struggles into something that more closely resembles a seated position. “Sorry. It was a long first day.”
"But good, right?" Scott nudges a beer across the table and slides into the booth next to Kira, slinging an arm around her shoulders.
"Yeah," Stiles says. "It was good."
"You look good, anyway." Isaac smirks across the table at him. Stiles tugs self-consciously at the knot of his tie. He’s come to like it, actually, almost, the heavy weight of the silk slick and solid, always just at hand. He’s still not wild about being apprenticed to the only emissary in the state of California who insists on business casual in the office— this morning, wriggling into stiff raw denim pants and buttoning the cuffs on each shirtsleeve he appreciated Deaton’s ripped jeans and constant, fine dusting of cat hair more than he ever thought possible. But it’s livable. Isaac is really excited to have someone he can educate about the finer points of menswear. It’s almost cute enough to make the clothes themselves bearable.
"You do, um," someone says over Isaac’s shoulder. Derek is hovering there, uncertain, empty-handed and shy. "You look nice."
okay though if there’s anything that struck me on rewatching the first Cap movie it’s how much Steve and Bucky are such assholes to each other and it’s amazing
and like can you just imagine recovered!Bucky and Steve going on missions together and Steve being like
"wow Buck that thing you did there was actually kind of smart, all the stupid must’ve grown out in your hair"
and Bucky being all
"you might not know this, Steve, but there’s this thing we say these days that might be really useful for you to know and it goes like this: go fuck yourself"
and all the other avengers looking at each other like we read about you in history books, you are national heroes, what even
