"I like to uni."  
The whole episode is pretty funny but nothing quite beats Mark Ruffalo and James McAvoy riding unicycles together.



Weirdly what this did was make me realize that I haven't done daemons for the X-Men films. Excuse me for a minute.

James Macavoy is always about 500% more Scottish than I expect him to be. I feel like he manages to bring up all the guests he's with, too. I've never seen him on GNS without really enjoying the episode. He's very personable.

And Mark Ruffalo's unicycle skills were unknown to me and it genuinely seems like a weird skill for him to have, considering his very laidback, quiet personality. Do you remember any interviews with him before he had his brain tumour thing? Was he more animated, then? I know he had a lot of facial paralysis, I'm just wondering if he seems more monotone because of that, or he's always been very dry.

I knew we were missing something! Do daemons get superhero names, too?

And he was again very personable in this one. Although it was a tie for me on who was more enjoyable in this episode, him or Mark Ruffalo.

Maybe young!Ruffalo was more insane. It would explain why he also wanted to be a clown. I don't think he was kidding when he said that.

I haven't seen any but then again, I haven't really sought out any.

I'm going to say no to try and save myself some grief. They would, however, have the powers of their humans, right? Mystique's daemon would have to be able to change form too in order to look like the daemon of whoever she was impersonating. Although now I have funny images of a cute animal raising a paw to move metal around.

As much as I respect the actor/character separation rules, I would so love to fold this into Bruce's character and have Tony find out he can randomly ride a unicycle. Possibly, in the daemon's verse, with Nemi riding piggy back.

"Look, I was in Brazil, I needed money, I learned how to ride a unicycle. We don't talk about it.
"We are 100% talking about it."

They would, however, have the powers of their humans, right? Mystique's daemon would have to be able to change form too in order to look like the daemon of whoever she was impersonating.

Oooh, good question. I think you could go either way, to be honest. The powers are officially the result of a gene mutation, and daemons don't have genes, they're just energy, so I don't know if they would have the same abilities. It would depend on how much you believe the powers are part of a person's soul or not, I guess. I would definitely say Mystique's daemon never stopped shifting, and probably Wolverine's daemon can't die. So, yeah, I'd say I'd believe either way you decided to go.

I'm picturing Cyclops' daemon with little glasses on and it's making me happy.

Hahaha! I can hear Tony calling for everyone to get in here pronto because they're all going to talk about Bruce's unicycling. Also, I can totally see Nemi doing little somersaults while Bruce rides around because secretly Bruce loves being able to unicycle.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on January 10th, 2015 03:05 pm (UTC)
"Where did you even pull this unicycle out of, Tony?"
"I built it. Just now. It's a unicycle not a nuclear reactor. I built it while I was eating breakfast and checking e-mails."

Also, I can totally see Nemi doing little somersaults while Bruce rides around because secretly Bruce loves being able to unicycle.

Awww! I have since come to the conclusions that pandas actually somersault for fun. I found a third gif of one playing in the snow. So, yeah, this is officially part of Nemi's mannerisms now.

Tony probably wouldn't be able to help himself and later puts in a rocket launcher on the unicycle.

Are pandas the only bears who like to roll and somersault? I don't think I've seen any other bear do things like this. Either way it's adorable.

"Hey, think we could sell this, J.A.R.V.I.S?"
"Yes, I'm sure the clown division of the military would be chomping at the bit, sir."

I don't think other bears do it, no. Panda bears are just kind of chill, though. Eat your bamboo, get carried around by people in panda suits, do a few somersaults, go to bed. They're like animal philosophers.

This is probably the panda is my spirit animal. Not that I'm a philosopher. But I'm definitely big into eating, sleeping, and people having to drag me around.

I'm countering my running away fic with happy Tony and children fic because writing dysfunctional family relationships is hard for me, and both human Jarvis and AI JARVIS are being fussy and adorable. Especially AI JARVIS, who is being frustrated by the combined efforts of two Stark children trying to reprogramme him.

I'm definitely your Mim, flying around and being excited and cheerful and coercing you into playing with me.

This sounds like the Genius Stark Family version of when the kids try to dress up the family cat in human clothes. The parents have to step in to get them to stop but then secretly think that hat they put on Mittens looked cute. Meanwhile the cat's all, "Leave me alooooooonnnneee."

Haha! Yes, that it totally true.

Kit: I want a puppy!
Tony: You don't need a puppy, you have JARVIS. And DUM-E.
JARVIS: Sir, I would very much appreciate if you would not encourage Master Christopher to treat me as a plaything. And I resent being placed in the same category as DUM-E.

Hee! I can see DUM-E whoop whooping with happiness when Tony includes him and then whooping in sadness when JARVIS says it resents being in the same group as DUM-E.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on January 10th, 2015 04:13 pm (UTC)

Tony: Why do I find that touching? Fatherhood is weird.

You know Tony is taking a photo of that with his Stark phone and uploading it on Instagram, all the while shaking his head in disbelief at himself.

Hahahaha!

Tony: God, like 98% of these pictures are my kids. Remember when it used to be full of hot babes and booze?
JARVIS: Vividly, sir.
Tony: My kids are cute though.
JARVIS: Yes, sir.
Tony: You said that sarcastically, JARVIS.
JARVIS: Master James is trying to put a truck in the blender, sir.
Tony: Come on, that is fucking adorable. Cut the power and at yell at him.
JARVIS: Yes, sir.

This exchange is SOOO Howard and human!Jarvis. I loved James D'Arcy's face when he told Peggy she had "no idea" when she agreed Jarvis having to oust one of Howard's mistresses sounded believable.

Tony: Come on, that is fucking adorable. Cut the power and at yell at him.

Me too. That's when I realized that Jarvis was Howard's Pepper Potts. 'Taking out the trash'.

Do you suppose that girl in the speedboat was supposed to be Maria? Or was it some plot point about Howard's dislike of water or just something flippant by Peggy? She's a little too young to be giving birth in 1970, but it seemed significant that Howard 'must really like her'.

It also made me think it was even more touching how long Howard looked for Cap if he doesn't even like to be on a boat to begin with.

Parenting! By Tony Stark.

I just have bits and scraps of fic for this idea, but no real stories or plans. I know the kids names (except for the girl, who only has a nickname and I can't find a real one I like as much as the nickname) and their ages and vaguely how they came into being, but it's mostly just me messing about. It's fun, though. I go there when I need to clean my palate from the screaming in my other Stark Family Feels fic.

I totally thought the whole thing about Howard and his dislike of water was a lie and Peggy's way to throw Sousa off from investigating Howard traveling by boat.

No shock to anyone that I do the opposite. I got to my "Howard and Maria Are Having Marital Problems" fic when the "Steve Adopts Dogs" fic is getting too fluffy.

That six degrees meme fic I'm still delayed on getting to you tried to get angsty but I pulled the leash on it to keep it fluffy.

That makes so much more sense. Thank you for clearing that up. So much lying and spying, I got confused about what's a story and what's true, I think.

Ha! I'm having a hard time with Tony and Howard yelling at each other. I'm just going 'no, that's mean!' 'That's the point, Tay', 'yes, but it's mean', 'it needs to be mean, just keep writing'.

Although I totally believe that Howard tried to kiss Peggy who did shove him into the river.

Yup! Whenever you wince, you're doing it right!

That's totally what made the rest of it seem plausible to me. I can kind of see Howard treading water in the river, not even that upset. 'Yeah, that's fair. I was being kind of a dick. Oh well.'

Howard: Can you blame me?
Peggy: Your next words, Howard, will decide whether or not I throw you this rope.
Howard: Sorry?
Peggy: Good choice.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on January 10th, 2015 05:15 pm (UTC)
Hee! I'd like to think this story got handed down to Tony with Howard leaving out the shoving in a river part of it, except Jarvis is serving politely in the background and totally rats Howard out.

"Oh, yes, sir, I remember that day. I spent hours trying to wash the Hudson out of your waistcoat."
