    Bookmarker's Notes

    "You see there’s a bug in the great supercomputer of our collective unconscious that’s filed rape in the sex folder not the torture folder. (...) You know, rape was only recognised as a war crime in 2014. That’s how badly we misfiled it."

    This is really important. REALLY important. Reframing! To actually be able to acknowledge and own that what happened that traumatized you was NOT OKAY, that it hurt, that it we no longer need to make excuses for it, that we no longer need to feel ashamed because of it. Be it military trauma, domestic violence, rape, medical trauma, etc.

    An incredibly well-written fic and actually so light in mood that it doesn't drag the reader down the same way many fics often do. (I read it from the bottom up, I was so afraid of feeling low from reading it.) Brilliantly done.

    Summary

    Integration into adult human social dynamics requires attention and effort. Especially with this bunch of damaged bozos.

    (A series of interconnected one-shots.)

     

    Here's a great drawing of Barnes and cat Eleanor, doing what they do best: http://masykruger.tumblr.com/post/132543566312/i-love-these-fics-so-much

    Oh sure, reunion results in happiness, kittens, and rainbows, because that's definitely how life goes when you've just spent 70 years as a tool of villainy. I mean, what could possibly go wrong?
