Fic recs: miscellaneous

All The Leaves Are Brown (And the sky is gray), by AvocadoLove
The Winter Soldier’s mission is nearly complete. Howard and Maria Stark are dead, leaving him to dispatch their four-year-old child. One quick twist of the neck is all it will take, but the Soldier finds he cannot do it.

So instead of killing Tony Stark, the Winter Soldier takes him away to raise as his own.

AvocadoLove writes some of the best AU fic in my opinion, and this is one of them. Plus there’s an epilogue and a remix/AU of an AU.

Magical Princess Scientist!, by Rozilla
Jane sits in a cafe and spots a special young girl in need of a Princess - or a scientist?

Super cute kid-fic one shot which isn’t about pregnancy or those gosh darned things they do, but instead on fostering (pun not intended) love of the sciences in girls and treating autistic children with respect. Also the mum is a Thor fangirl and that’s adorable too.

f,l,o,w,e,r,s Acrylic Ruler (2007) by Norihiko Terayama of Studio Note

If the flowers in the paddy were spaced in equal intervals I could lie down in them and measure my height.” That was the simple, idyllic thought that led designer Norihiko Terayama to create what could very possibly be the single most stunning piece of stationary we have ever come across.

f,l,o,w,e,r,s is an acrylic ruler embedded with real flowers that were hand-picked and then dried by the designer himself. Using a pair of tweezers he then meticulously spaced them so that they are “blossoming” at exactly 1cm intervals.

Winter Soldier + bionic arm

I love how unapologetically fucking SHINY that thing is. Like, either he wears a jacket or the whole damn neighbourhood knows he’s coming just from the lightshow reflecting off of his arm.

I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell; I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.

Rare and unusual “Femme Fatale” ring pistol, originates from France, third quarter of the 19th century.

Sold at Auction: $11,350


That blued-metal bit hinges down to become the trigger.

Also sold as a pair, “Les Companions”, with the Femme Fatale (2mm bullets) and its larger mate Le Petit Protector (4mm bullets). Read more here. The projectiles are almost laughably small, but would have been used at a range where getting one in the eye would be no laughing matter.
