Steve’s an art major. Sam’s his roommate, who’s there on the VI Bill and insists Steve should join him on the track team. Steve’s thinking about it. His friend Bucky from high school didn’t make it past the waiting list for such a prestigious university, so he’s currently in the dredges of some faraway community college, and it’s clearly killing Steve to be away from him. (Bucky didn’t tell him he didn’t get in until he was sure Steve had accepted and it was too late to pull out. They both know if Steve had known, he’d have given up his dreams and followed Bucky and gotten a much shittier degree.)

Across the hall is a triple with Clint and Thor and Tony - as big as Thor is, Clint somehow managed to insist on top bunk and win. Thor’s actually a good guy. He’s an exchange student from some Nordic country, and he’s like eleven feet tall but a total softie, with a big booming voice and majoring in business. He says he’s going to help his father grow the company in the US. His father sounds terrifying.

Tony’s the only Engineering major Steve’s ever seen sleep with so many women. He’s constantly hitting on his lab partner in his biology course, some really gorgeous brilliant girl who’s clearly too smart to fall for him, but he plays it off and hangs out with Bruce a lot, who’s probably better at this biochem stuff than the professor. Bruce, for some reason, refuses to live on campus. He’s out sick a lot and won’t talk about it.

Natasha’s the only person in the co-ed dorm with a single and there must have been a hell of a lot of medical paperwork to get that to happen - or maybe, knowing her, she blackmailed someone in housing - everyone’s afraid to ask. She hangs out with Thor’s girlfriend sometimes - this tiny petite girl who never leaves the science building and is riding along on the most incredible scholarship Steve has ever heard of.

queerly-it-is:

d’you think the avengers ever play a game where they try to push steve’s buttons and get him all riled up and patriotic?

tony casually throws it into a conversation like “oh yeah I don’t vote” and steve trails off mid-sentence and gapes for a second before he starts in on the importance of the democratic process and how dangerous it can be if citizens give up their say in how the government is run and tony is trying so so hard to keep a straight face

meanwhile bruce is standing in the background timing the speech with his watch because whoever gets the longest rant wins a little trophy that tony made. the current holder of the trophy is clint who managed to convince steve that he doesn’t pay taxes

Actual 3-year-old Tony Stark, everyone. 

I WAS JUST LOOKING FOR THIS LAST NIGHT AND COULDN’T FIND IT.

I love any comic that shows that 95% of the time, if you feed him and give him tv, Hulk is actually super chill

darcy asking mjolnir politely if she can lift the hammer off of the magazine she wants to read - because sometimes thor doesn’t pay attention to where he sets it down and mjolnir ends up on the coffee table on top of darcy’s stack of magazines (“myah-myah, i want that” *lifts mjolnir to awe of everyone in the room, thor laughs* “thank you!” *puts mjolnir down again, walks off with magazine) and it’s just great

everyone else tries the same thing, because if darcy “my taser is my best friend” lewis can pick up thor’s magic hammer, than they all should be able to, right? nope, no dice

Conversation I had while at work today.
Me: So what do you want to be for Halloween?
Little Girl: I think I should be Thor.
Her Mother: You know Thor's a boy right?
Little Girl: Yeah and I'm a girl and I want to be Thor.
Her Mother: Don't you want to be something pretty?
Little Girl: Thor is pretty.

A lot of people wanted Peter’s first day of school. I figure he’d be worried at first with his parents leaving him, but at least from this point on he’ll have no problem making new friends yep
