Marvel-ous Marching Band

Work Text:

Hey guys!
So me, Crow, and some of our friends were talking about who in the MCU would play what instrument in the marching band, so naturally we wrote it down and decided to start writing it. We’re planning on doing a lot of things in this AU, from band practices to football games to competitions to just some everyday things as they go through High School. We will be humanizing this, so anyone with strange names (i.e. Groot, Valkyrie) will just be nicknames. Some of them may end up with a backstory, some might not. Also, we fully plan on writing the following ships into this series, so if you don’t like any of these, you might not want to read this. Steve Rogers/Bucky Barnes, Clint Barton/Natasha Romanoff, Hope Van Dyne/Scott Lang, Mild Pepper Potts/Tony Stark, and Peter Quill/Gamora.

Thanks for reading!! In here you will find a list of our personal opinions on the instruments everyone would play, some other clubs they are in, the main high school’s name and show as well as their rivals’, and what grade level everyone at the main school is in. That way, it doesn’t get confusing among all of the characters.
