    Summary

    "How was your date," Jack asks, filling a glass with tap water ("Jack, we have a Britta, gross.")

    Eric rolls his eyes. "Fine, if you like listening to hour long spiels about World War II." He realizes what he's said. "Which I do," he adds hurriedly.

    Jack raises his eyebrows over his glass as he takes a pull and Eric's face heats.

    "I mean. Platonically. Or on a date. If you like that. History, I mean." Any day now he'll stop talking and when that day comes he'll also murder Ransom and Holster in their sleep.

     

     

    Five dates other people set up for Bitty and one Bitty set up for himself.

    Summary

    You’d think a guy who owns one of the most successful bakeries in Brooklyn, has a million-dollar smile and that antiquated good ol’ boy charm, blond hair and blue eyes and biceps for days, would know what’s what.

    But don’t let that fool you: Steve Rogers is a mess.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    PURE, UNFILTERED (UNPHILTERED) JOY.

    “Wait,” Clint said, “you know me?”

    “I know of you,” Dumpster Guy corrected him. “Well. I had occasionally idly speculated about the possibility that you, my guardian angel, existed, but I know a lot about your current… avatar. I pay considerable attention to Hawkeye’s career. I’m an, ahem, admirer.”

    “Are you,” Clint said. This was totally unfair; weird fan encounters was more a Cap or Tony thing. They knew how to handle shit like that. Clint never knew what to say to regular fans, let alone strange ones, and today he hadn’t even had any coffee.

    “Oh, yes. Well, who wouldn’t be, honestly?”

    A lot of people, Clint thought, but Dumpster Guy was warming to the topic.

    “He’s brave, talented, self-sacrificing, heroic, and humble, not to mention physically beautiful,” he was saying. “Honestly, it’s hard to think of a better form to take to keep me from being stricken with terror at the sight of you.”

    “Wait, wait, hang on,” Clint said, his brain still reeling over the string of extremely flattering adjectives. “Let me catch up. You think that A, I am your guardian angel, and that B, I have appeared to you in the form of Hawkeye the Avenger in a dumpster in Bed-Stuy.”

    “Well, everyone knows angels are terrifying,” Dumpster Guy said. “That’s why they always start out by telling people not to be afraid, but that sort of thing never works. It just stands to reason you’d eventually start trying to address the root cause of the problem.”
