    Summary

    "Well I'm stuck here," Bucky says, indicating his crutches. "And everyone else is either gone or busy. You could...if you could stay for a couple hours until my folks get back, I'll pay you for your time. I got an allowance. Ten bucks a week."

    Steve's jaw nearly drops onto the ground before he recovers. "Whadaya want me to do?"

    "Just...stick around? I'm bored. I got some games I need another person to play with, and my sister's not home. And...and, y'know, if I get hungry you can run over to the kitchen to get a snack for me. Stuff like that. You'd be like...like my personal manservant or something, for the day."

    Steve looks troubled.

    "I'll still pay you the five bucks," Bucky says, with a cheeky grin. "Please, it's so boring being laid up."

    Steve looks even more troubled; he glances at the other houses lining the street, and Bucky can tell he's calculating the likelihood that anyone else would take him up on his offer of janitorial services. A gust of wind blows by, coating Bucky's face with cold; he sees Steve shiver and, unconsciously, fold his arms across his chest.

    Summary

    Liebes Tagebuch,

    jetzt bin ich auf Wattpad gelandet, das vermutlich zum Darknet gehört. Scheint mir jedenfalls so. Jedenfalls weckt es meinen Mitteilungsdrang. Was ich hier so alles lese ... Da werden Hexenjagden auf Kritiker veranstaltet, die alten Literaten mit Unkenntnis gestraft und böse, böse Mary Sues geschrieben. Komische Menschen sind das hier, liebes Tagebuch. Ganz komische Menschen ... Ich hoffe, du kannst mir helfen, meine Gedanken zu ordnen, damit ich vielleicht sogar ein paar Antworten auf meine Fragen finde. Warum zum Beispiel wird man hier für seine Meinung zu einem Text beleidigt, selbst wenn diese negativ ausfällt? Warum ist es so toll, in seinem Leben noch nie was von Goethe gehört zu haben? Und warum fahren alle auf dieses Wattys-Gedöns ab?! Oder bin ich einfach zu alt für diese sehr jugendliche Community? Aber die wichtigste Frage von allen ist doch: Was zum Henker läuft mit Wattpad FALSCH?!

    Summary

    I was considering something I mentioned in a discussion about "This is the Picture", which was the repeated use of young women as mentally ill or institutionalized in Joss Whedon's work and how Spike was a rare male recurring character who was shown in the same way. That led me to thinking more about his ensoulment, duality in the Buffyverse, and the larger forces at play in the final seasons of Buffy and Angel.
