    Summary

    Jessica Jones is doing okay by her own, admittedly low, standards. She has an actual checking account, is not currently considered a person of interest by the NYPD, and the ice cream truck that used to park outside her bedroom window at midnight blaring Turkey in the Straw finally found another block to torment.

    But it wouldn't be her life without a complication.

    Summary

    A moderately in-depth analysis of the psychological effects of events which would be expected to drastically alter a person or characters relationship to their body, including factors relating to acceptance and likely effects of varying levels of body change acceptance. Written from a Cognitive Behavioral Theory viewpoint, but I’ve tried to make it as generally accessible as possible. I’ve used the MCU Avengers Phase 1 as my primary point of reference with occasional references to other fandoms and no Phase 2 spoilers.

    I plan to update this when/if my theory develops further, or to respond to questions from anyone who has them.

    EDIT: There's a YouTube video now! It covers much of the same material, but not all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1ftJeQ8jRKM&t=1132s

    Summary

    Bucky Barnes is eighteen, a senior in highschool, and totally in love with his best friend. It's okay. He'll either get over it or sleep with every hipster twink in college who's in a band. At least, that's what Natasha says.

    Summary

    “Actually, I am dating someone.” He says.

    What ends up happening is, he says the first name that comes to mind.

    What ends up happening is, he blurts out, “Steve Rogers.”

    Without thinking, obviously. Because if he had been thinking, he would have thought of something better than this.

    And that's how Bucky ends up bringing Steve as a date to his sister's wedding.

    Summary

    Bucky's mother gives him an ultimatum. Bucky doesn't respond well.

    All Barneses are stubborn assholes, Steve observes, as though he doesn't see the irony of calling someone else stubborn. Or an asshole.

    And Bucky can't even deny he is a total asshole for lying to his mother about dating Steve just so he doesn't have to bring someone else to her wedding, but damn if he's not going to give the lie everything he has.

    (OR: Bucky and Steve reach an understanding that sometimes it's easier to just pretend they're dating. They hide behind 'pretend' for far longer than they should)
