If you're looking for more stories in which Steve Rogers actually acts like himself, I highly recommend "Off the Map."  Steve's vacation goes astray into Latveria.  Do not read with your mouth full.

Per multiple requests, I have updated "Rotten Fruit" to include a scene showing Hulk reciting social stories.  I also added another fans's perspective on kibbutzim  in the notes.

Yes, it is okay to point out flaws in my work.  It's also illuminating.  You know why this one was short, less connected to the larger work, left out an important scene, and was generally less polished than usual?  Because I wrote it fast, all in one day; revised it later in the day; then posted it the same evening.  It wasn't planned.  It was a response to something that happened at Marvel.  How I usually work is that I write a story and then let it sit a while before I revise and share it.  That allows time for me to forget what I meant  to write and see what I actually typed.  It's also easier to catch places where I need to delete or add something.  In the case of response fiction, speed is of the essence, but it does come at a cost.

I have decided that it's time for another round of "Poke a Bigot in the Eye." This time, it was inspired by Marvel declaring that Captain America is a Hydra agent, which I mentioned recently.

I've been thinking about Marvel's latest issue of fail. Clearly somebody ought to do something about this. Well, I'm Somebody.  If you want to do something about this nonsense too, I have a list of suggestions.

EDIT 5/31/16:  [personal profile] shiori_makiba has written two lovely poems that follow my story "Rotten Fruit." "A Good Man" shows Phil's musing about what makes a villain and what makes a hero, while waiting for rescue. "It Ain't So" features Tony helping to clean up the aftermath, in which he and Steve explain about bullies.

EDIT 6-1-16: I have added a scene about Hulk reciting social stories, and a new reference to kibbutzim.

This story fills the "caught in the act" square in my 5-1-16 card for the Solo Celebration Bingo fest.

This story belongs to the series Love Is For Children which includes "Love Is for Children," "Hairpins," "Blended," "Am I Not," "Eggshells," "Dolls and Guys,""Saudades," "Querencia," "Turnabout Is Fair Play," "Touching Moments," "Splash," "Coming Around," "Birthday Girl," "No Winter Lasts Forever," "Hide and Seek," "Kernel Error," "Happy Hour," "Green Eggs and Hulk,""kintsukuroi," "Little and Broken, but Still Good," "Up the Water Spout," "The Life of the Dead," "If They Could Just Stay Little," "Anahata," "When the Wheels Come Off," "Against His Own Shield," "Coming in from the Cold: Saturday: Building Towers," "Coming in from the Cold: Sunday: Shaking Foundations," "Coming in from the Cold: Monday: Memorial Day," and "What Little Boys Are Made Of."

Fandom: The Avengers
Characters: Steve Rogers, Phil Coulson, Hulk, HYDRA!Nick Spencer, Nick Fury, Clint Barton, Tony Stark, JARVIS
Medium: Fiction
Warnings: Defamation. Betrayal. Anger management issues. Rebellion. Ethical dilemmas. RPF. #sayitaintso. #nickspencerishydra.
Summary: A more plausible explanation for that issue of Captain America in which Steve is portrayed as a HYDRA agent.
Notes: Heroism. Team as family. Competence. Friendship.

A note on feedback: While it's not necessary to comment on every post I make, remember that I don't know who reads/likes things if nobody says anything. Particularly on long stories, I've discovered that I get antsy if there's nothing but crickets chirping for several posts. So it helps to give me feedback at least once, even if it's just "I like this" or "This one doesn't grab me." First and last episodes are ideal if you rarely feel inspired to comment in the middle.

I also have a list of favorite photogenic scenes from the whole series for fanartists to consider, partly compiled from audience requests.

 [personal profile] dialecticdreamer  has posted "Memo's Uncertainty" as the Gingerblast ad for Magpie Monday.  That prompt call will open on May 16 with a theme of "schooling vs. education" and a focus on positive interpretations.  (We wanted to see what would happen if we shared the same theme.)  So mark the date!
