When Adrien and Marinette are late to class because of an akuma battle, Adrien offers their teacher a very plausible explanation—and thanks to teenage hormones and years of pining, his lie just might come true.
“You don’t need to give me a reason,” Monsieur Bernard says. “But if you don’t, then I’ll have to involve your parents or the principal.”
“There’s no need for that!” Marinette says. “We were…um…” Silence reigns, and the twenty pairs of eyes in the room narrow. “Um. We were…”
“We were making out in a storage closet!” Adrien says.
Marinette whips around so quickly that her neck hurts. “We were what?”

Maybe it was the please that did it but Jane finally met her gaze, worrying at her lip for a split second before she blurted out, “you ate a magic apple and now you’re some kind of immortal.”
“I’m a…” Darcy blinked twice, swallowed once and shook her head, “nope, okay, rewind. What?”
Darcy Lewis learned nothing from fairytales.
After eating an honest to god(dess) magic apple she finds herself the unwilling heiress of the powers of Eris, Goddess of Chaos. Stuck on Asgard as she struggles for control, things go from ‘weird’ to ‘oh hell no’ when she’s thrown together with Mr Tall, Dark, and Murderous himself. She wants nothing to do with Loki, no matter what Thor’s mom says about things not always being what they seem, but she might not have a choice. With her control wavering and her powers threatening to go nova she comes to realise he might just be the one person alive who can help her, whether she likes it or not.
((Slow burn Tasertricks set after the first Avengers and going blissfully off canon after that point, because it’s apparently still 2012 in my head.)

“You’re Bucky Barnes!” Darcy blurts out, feeling dumb for just now figuring it out. James looks a bit tense at that, and Steve frowns, starting to move toward them. “Do you know how many memes I’ve shared about your hair?!”
He relaxes at that, actually smirking a bit. “And you still didn’t recognize me until now? I’m wounded,” James says.
“To be fair, you’re wearing a lot of eyeliner,” Darcy says. “And I’ve just been through a very traumatizing situation, so.” She says it with a heavy dose of haughty sarcasm so he knows she’s not overly serious.
“Uh huh,” James says, but he’s smirking. Steve still looks a bit wary as he sits down next to James, but not like he’s going to step in. Good, she’d hate to be lectured by the symbol of American freedom. “These better be complimentary memes.”

The threat of the Winter Soldier programming taking over is one that everyone at the tower (with high enough clearance to even know about him) takes very seriously. Before he's brought in, there are security drill after security drill, all kinds of briefings to read, strategically-placed and reinforced panic rooms, the whole nine yards. Neither Darcy nor Jane are particularly worried about it, it's unlikely they'll cross his path in general, but they do everything they're told anyway.
It turns out the prep they were given wasn't entirely unwarranted, but it does end up being a little useless. They were told to remain nonthreatening, which is easy to do, and to remain calm, which isn't. They were also told that the Soldier would be angry and violent, which he isn't. The blank coldness melts from his face, leaving him looking around him, confusion on his face.

Darcy sighs and turns around, taking in her little cell. The walls are thick cement from the look of them, no windows, not vents, nothing but the reinforced door that's locked behind her. There's a tiny cot and a man slumped against the far wall. His posture is casual, but his eyes are alert, staring at her intently.
There's a jolt of fear in Darcy's stomach because that's him. That's the Winter Solider Steve and Sam have been looking for for months. She can only blame the thrill of fear and a complete lack of self preservation for what she says next.
Darcy is getting really tired of being kidnapped. At least she has a cellmate this time.
