scrollgirl said: I used to randomly sing Princes of the Universe… but then I’m a Highlander fan and that’s probably the only Queen song I know.
Everyone knows Bohemian Rhapsody and We are the Champions.
“Attention all S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. This is Steve Rogers. You’ve heard a lot about me in the past few days. Some of you were even ordered to hunt me down. But I think it’s time you know the truth. S.H.I.E.L.D. is not what we though it was. It’s been taken over by Hydra. Alexander Pierce is their leader. The strike and insight crew work for Hydra as well. I don’t know how many more but I know they are in the building. They could be standing right next to you. They almost have what they want. Absolute control. They shot Nick Fury and it won’t end there. If you launch those helicarriers today Hydra will be able to kill anyone that stands in their way unless we stop them. I know I am asking a lot but the price of freedom is high… it always has been, and it’s a price I am willing to pay. And if I am the only one, so be it. But I am willing to be that I am not.”
Does anyone else
RANDOMLY start singing Queen?
My Biggest Writing Flaw
is my inability to keep my tenses straight.
ladydeathfaerie beta’d my Sam/Steve piece (and I can’t thank her enough and I need to buy her a mountain of chocolate IF ONLY I COULD FIND A REASONABLE SHIPPING PRICE) and every other paragraph is marked with ‘tense change’.
I’m not even exaggerating.
A Flashforward (Again)

I’ve already sort of covered Gaara’s side of this here with 12-year-old Gaara meeting 15-year-old Gaara, but this was a great excuse to make a Naruto version of that comic. With the older Naruto not being 15, because Shippuuden already did that in the first episode, and anyway I think 15-year-old (and 16-year-old) Naruto still has a long way to go in terms of being okay with himself. You get the 20/30-something I more often draw him as when I depict him and Gaara as an established couple.
I feel like Gaara would never have had a problem with the gender of the people he’s attracted to; only with, well, being attracted to people in any way in the first place. Naruto on the other hand grew up more eager to fit other people’s definitions of acceptable, and as such, would probably have gone through a closet phase if we consider him anything other than heterosexual (which I obviously do, and not only for shipping purposes) and the world they live in to be at all like ours in that sense (and that’s a post for some other time). “All your friends will be fine with it”, though? Yeah, I like to think they would be.
(Obligatory disclaimer because I sort of mentioned another pairing, although only because it’s at least partly canon: I like NaruSaku, too. This is just my headcanon where Naruto had a crush on and probably was in love with Sakura, yes, but he eventually falls in love with Gaara and marries him and they live happily ever after. Shippers gonna ship.)
