    Bookmarker's Notes

    He couldn't make his mouth form any of the polite civilities. So instead, what slipped out was, "Unfair. A man's ex should not be allowed to look this hot at a diplomatic reception."

    Rhodey tilted his head. His forehead was wrinkling in confusion, but Sam could see a little smile playing on Rhodey's lips. "Hello, Sam," he said, sounding bemused. "Not sure what brought that on."

    Sam gave him a grin. "I thought about starting with 'hello'—"

    "A classic," Rhodey said with approval.

    Summary

    Bucky hasn't slept on a bed that would be considered traditionally "comfortable" in more years than he cares to remember. He can still count them, but he'd rather not. And there he was on this couch, weeks ago, smelling like rust and saltwater, and it hadn't been comfortable, per se, but there had been cushions, and pillows, and a spring here and there, just to keep him honest.

    "Don't worry." Sam didn't sneak up behind him; not many people can do that anymore. But still, he stills once he feels him at his back. "I didn't booby trap it. Won't bite. Next time, though." He points with one hand, claps Bucky on the shoulder with the other, and goes off to help Sarah in the kitchen.

    That's Captain America, Bucky thinks. The warmth that spreads through him to think those words again is almost profane.

    Bookmarker's Notes

    "Are you really going to try to have a serious talk with me while you eat that kids' cereal?"

    "It's Lucky Charms. Do you have a problem with Lucky Charms?"

    "No, it's just, you're asking me to move in with you, and you've got--you're eating these little marshmallow hearts--"

    "And stars and horseshoes, clovers and blue moons," Sam says heavily, seriously, challenging, and Bucky throws his hands up. Sam chews loudly, but then he does set the bowl down. "When you move in, we'll get you the cereal you want, how's about that? What do you want, some Grape Nuts? Raisin Bran?"

    Quacks Podcast! retweeted
    Graham 🌠 @ggoreart
    In honour of the merch dropping, here’s a comparison between the concept art for @quackspod and the final logo
    [image description: on the left is the concept art - Harry dressed as a plague doctor (holding, rather than wearing his mask) and Silna dressed as a modern doctor against a red backdrop printed with tiny caduceuses with a banner reading ‘Quacks: Old Medicine for the Modern Age’ along the bottom - and the right is the official logo - a yellow rubber duck wearing a headlamp and a lab coat against a simple red background and the same banner]

    Harry D.S. Goodsir @GoodsirPhD
    @ggoreart a tragedy that we didn’t go with the original logo and expose my long history of cosplaying plague doctors
    [image description: four photos of Harry dressed as a plague doctor much like the original art, ages 9, 14, 17 & 23]

    Summary

    They're in the play!

    (They go through the requisite amount of hey, this doesn’t look like heaven, this looks like a theater!, which takes… more time than you might think, especially since they aren’t all speaking to each other.)

    Bookmarker's Notes

    “In Act Two, Eliza moves on Maria Reynolds—played by Burr—with a kind of ruthlessness. She says he’s left her helpless.

    He sings, “I didn’t know any better.”

    She says she’s ruined.

    Here’s the kicker: he agrees. “Yes, yes,” they both sing in tandem.”
