Steve pushes his hand into his pocket and it closes around cool metal. “You know there are timelines where none of this happened.”
Sam shrugs and sits down on the wall next to Steve. “Yeah, and there are timelines where reality TV doesn’t exist and this job pays. We can’t do anything about that. They’re not ours.”
( Steve stares out at the skyline. )
This is my new favorite way of getting past writers' block, you guys. Because it's easy (lazy) and because it combines my favorite things: photoshop, and not actually writing. I've been working on the same story since July -- it's at over 20,000 words and will probably end around 30-40, when I finally get this stupid thing done. I'm really pleased with what I have so far, but it's slow-going, both because writing is hard (it is!) and because I have approximately five million other things I should be doing other than writing fanfic (my PhD exams are in May, so that's a thing that's happening).
The fic I'm writing is not actually curtain-fic, and this is not actually part of the story. I'm basically just writing extra scenes in my head with all the characters I wasn't able to include in the story proper. Next up: Bucky. Man, you don't even understand how hard it was to not use Bucky. Kill your darlings and all but if I had my way I would just stick Bucky everywhere. He's basically my favorite thing.
