Meme (Romance Kind)  
I've done an OTP meme for two OC characters. That's right. My brain has gone there. I've done a meme for two characters that are straight from my imagination. Granted, one of them is the child of two existing fictional characters but still. It's good to see my mind does things like this when it's taking a break from dissertationing. I might need some help.

The Couple Playing: Winnifred 'Winnie' Watson-Barnes & Elliot Solarin


big spoon/little spoon:
Elliot is taller than Winnie so he usually ends up being the big spoon. Plus, it's easier on him that he's not lying in front of her should she start dream fighting. This rarely happens now but when it does, it's better to just be woken up by your wife fighting dream!pirates than taking a punch to the kidneys.

favorite non-sexual activity:
Reading together. Their combined library is huge with a wide selection of fiction and non-fiction in areas of true crime, psychology, various sciences, and history (the history books are all Elliot's). Plus, they each have a lot of magazine subscriptions.

what has a season pass on their dvr/who controls the netflix queue:
Both Winnie and Elliot are more podcast people. If they're having a lazy weekend, they can lose hours to 99% Invisible (Winnie's favorite), Radiolab (Elliot's favorite), and Criminal (both their favorites). They do have a netflix account but usually it's to watch the one off movie that's just gotten on there rather than binge-watching a bunch of series.

most trivial thing they fight over:
What activity to do when they go on holiday together. Winnie is ready to hike, swim, climb, walk around what ever location they're going to. Elliot would like to spend the bulk of it somewhere relaxing and quiet with a book.

who cooks normally?:
Cooking is usually Elliot's thing. He loves doing it and tends to have more regular hours so it gives him enough time to try out new recipes during the week. Winnie tries to contribute during the weekends with at least breakfasts.

who kissed who first?:
The argument could be made it was Elliot who kissed Winnie first. It was shortly after he and Winnie had met during a homicide case they both got involved in. After the case wrapped up, Elliot went over to see Winnie who was at her dad's place for a visit. They spent awhile chatting, sitting on the front steps, before Elliot kissed her. Afterwards, when Winnie went back inside, Bucky did his best not to interrogate.

who does most of the cleaning:
Winnie tends to do most of the clean up. She does it so often at the morgue that she's gotten used to scrubbing things down at home as well.

who calls up the super/landlord when the heat’s not working:
Whoever happens to be home at the time of the heat not working. If they're both, it's really a question of who's closer to the phone.

who remembers anniversaries:
Winnie tends to remember birthdays like a boss since she grew up with so many close family members and friends. Nary a month went by without it being someone's birthday. Elliot is better at remembering anniversaries of events. Since he and Winnie met on a case, it's very easy for him to remember that date.

Elliot: If Mr. Hatch hadn't been murdered on January 7th, I never would have met Winnie on the 12th.
Natasha: That's sweet.
Clint: Is it? Really?
Tony: A dead guy brought them together. It's a unique, romantic story for your children.
Winnie: Technically the NYPD brought us together.
Tony: Because of a dead guy. You have to keep the dead guy in the story to make it special.

How often do they fight?
They don't fight too often but when they do, it can get a little bit drawn out. Winnie is stubborn and Elliot isn't great with conflict so things can get stonily silent in their house for hours once they reach the plateau of their fight.

What do they do when they’re away from each other?
Winnie is usually hanging out with one of her many family members. If she's visiting her mom and Sherlock, she's probably gotten involved in some unofficial consultation work. Elliot would use the time to try to make some headway on one of the many papers that are constantly bouncing around his head.

Nicknames for each other?
Elliot sometimes calls Winnie, 'Win.' Winnie doesn't have a nickname for Elliot. She likes to say that Elliot so looks like an Elliot that it's hard to think of any other name or variation of a name when looking at him.

Who is more likely to pay for dinner?
If they're out eating for a celebration of some sort, whoever is not the one who did the thing worth celebrating ends up paying. Early on in their relationship, Elliot would buy and bring dinner to Winnie if she was doing a stakeout as a kind of bribe so he could stay.

Who steals the covers at night?
Neither. It's more of a question of if Winnie is going to kick the covers off during a dream fight.

What would they get each other for gifts?
Winnie does a lot of impulse buying of books for Elliot. He loves an array of subjects and if she sees one on something he'd like, she usually gets it for him. Elliot is not a good items gift giver. It's a weird blind spot for him. He knows people really well but tends to panic when he has to give objects as gifts. So he usually gives Winnie events as gifts, like a concert or a lecture. Winnie's first birthday after they started dating was a nightmare for Elliot. He enlisted the help of nearly everyone and still felt like he failed. Although Winnie insists that she loves the bee engraved ashtray he got her.

Elliot: I don't know why I went there. You don't even smoke.
Tony: Is this made out of silver? How did you end up getting a present so expensive and so useless at the same time? Where can I get one of these?
Winnie: It's not useless! I can put my keys in them. I'm always losing my keys.
Elliot: That's what your mom told me so I thought a key chain but that felt pathetic.
Steve: The bee's a nice touch.
Winnie: Yeah, the bee's the best part!

Who swears more?
Probably Winnie by just a little bit. Neither of them swear that much. Unless Elliot is grading papers.

What would they do if the other one was hurt?
Winnie would go into Doctor mode and make sure Elliot had everything he needed (both via his request and what she would prescribe to him to get better ASAP). She'd also try to keep him from doing work during his recovery.

Elliot: I'm not a Victorian lady on a fainting couch. I can grade some exams.
Winnie: If you were a Victorian lady I'd give you these exams. But you're a modern day man with access to cable TV.

Elliot actually got the opportunity to show himself in action when Winnie did get hurt once before they got married. It wasn't life threatening but she did have to have surgery and during her convalescence, he made sure she was comfortable and cleaned her entire apartment and cooked her easy to re-heat meals while she was sleeping off her meds. It was after seeing this that Bucky decided that Elliot was alright.

Who started the relationship?
Winnie and Elliot were attracted to each other from the start when they met during a case for the NYPD. Winnie was the ME on it, Elliot was the forensic psychologist brought in to profile the killer. Winnie might have gotten the ball rolling by visiting Elliot during one of his lectures to ask him some more questions about the killer's MO after she did her autopsy on the victim and found something interesting. Sure, she should have brought it first to the detective on the case, but it was a good excuse to talk to Elliot one on one.

Toughest decision they've made?
To stay in New York rather than relocate to California. Elliot was offered a great teaching position at a university there and Winnie was able to line up a chief medical examiner position for herself there. However, they both had some mixed feelings about going across the country. Both of their families were in New York and Elliot's mother only had him and he was concerned about being so far away from her. Winnie, who had never lived out of state from her family was also worried about being far away. So despite the great career opportunities for both, they decided to stay on the east side.

Hey, don't feel bad. I've written 3/4s of Tess and JJ meeting, and I'm building JJ an apartment (he lives in the one over where Nora's bookshop is). And apparently he has a rescued budgie named Huckleberry who lives there with him, and Winnie's taught him to say 'history is for losers' and JJ's taught him to say 'science sucks', and Tess looks like this, and I would say it was your fault, but at this point, I don't even know any more.

Anyway! Yay for Winnie and Elliot! I like them a lot. I can so see Bucky exercising great willpower after witnessing Elliot's kissing Winnie. And then quietly doing background checks.

Tony: Because of a dead guy. You have to keep the dead guy in the story to make it special.

This is so Tony.

Steve: The bee's a nice touch.
Winnie: Yeah, the bee's the best part!

Hahaha!!

I would say it was your fault, but at this point, I don't even know any more.

At this point I think we've both splashed around in the Fault Pool long enough that it no longer makes a difference.

Tess is gorgeous! Halfway through my writing of this meme, Elliot began to resemble Richard Ayoade in my mind. Perhaps I'm just delighted by the idea of a red panda sitting next to Richard Ayoade. I don't know. It's all mixed up.
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on June 22nd, 2015 05:04 am (UTC)
Hahaha!!

I've been having fun coming up with phrases Huck might have heard enough to pick up. So far his favourite ones are 'peekaboo!', 'stop, evildoers!', 'case solved!' and 'that's not historically accurate!'

Tess is gorgeous!

Thanks! I'm still building her up a little, but I stumbled upon that picture when I was looking for something else and that became what she looked like in my head.

Halfway through my writing of this meme, Elliot began to resemble Richard Ayoade in my mind

I fully support this. Richard Ayoade is adorable, and would look great with a red panda, and I can totally see him whacking someone with a microscope and being really proud and horrified by it.


formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on June 22nd, 2015 05:13 am (UTC)
I like that Huck is basically JJ, Winnie, persona!Captain America, and persona!Sherlock Holmes all wrapped up in one.

He would. I can also very easily picture him having quiet, serious conversations with one.

I can totally see him whacking someone with a microscope and being really proud and horrified by it.

This was also my litmus test to see if he'd work as Elliot. I pictured him hitting someone with a microscope and it worked pretty well.

I like that Huck is basically JJ, Winnie, persona!Captain America, and persona!Sherlock Holmes all wrapped up in one.

From the amount of people who probably Skype and chat with JJ on a daily basis, I imagine Huck just sits around and picks up phrases from various family members and television shows.

Huck: Take off your hat!
JJ: Geez, Dad's scolding me and he isn't even here. And I don't even have my hat on.

Huck: Hey, Featherface, what's up?
JJ: Have you been talking to Uncle Tony again?



This was also my litmus test to see if he'd work as Elliot. I pictured him hitting someone with a microscope and it worked pretty well.


I thought Tess would be a little more on the quiet side, and she is to some degree, but she is also apparently the kind of girl who goes 'maybe I shouldn't do this. No, fuck it, I'm doing it anyway'. So poor Elliot is probably the only sensible person around most of the time.

JJ: Geez, Dad's scolding me and he isn't even here. And I don't even have my hat on.


It'd be pretty funny if Huck shouted this at Steve and for a second Steve's confused but then approving.

So poor Elliot is probably the only sensible person around most of the time.

He tends to fall into more sensible habits unless something really gets his curiosity going. Then he chases after things before immediately regretting he's gotten himself into a situation where science equipment is being used as a weapon.

His first few gatherings with Winnie's extended family mostly consisted of him trying to make small talk while also being hyper aware he was talking to people like an alien Norse God and Captain America.

Angharad: Stop staring.
Elliot: I can't help it. He's got the hammer right there.
Angharad: You look creepy when you stare like that.
Elliot: Now I can't stop staring. Stop telling me to stop staring.
Angharad: Shess and Mr. Barnes are coming over. I'm going under the sofa.
Elliot: No! Don't you do this again!

Huck: Don't you fucking tell me what to do!

Steve: *raised eyebrow* I certainly hope so.

Nora has a touch of this. She's mostly pretty cool with all the weirdness that comes along with dating a super soldier, but then it strikes her every once in a while just how not normal it all is and has a little moment of 'what is my life?' before she remembers it's all awesome and carries on.

J.A.R.V.I.S: Welcome, Miss Phelan.
Nora: Uh, is the ceiling talking to me?
Steve: That's J.A.R.V.I.S, he's a computer programme...man, and he runs the building.
Nora: How does it know who I am?
J.A.R.V.I.S: I've run your facial biometrics through my database and found your driver's licence. Have I made a mistake? You are Honor Phelan of New York?
Nora: No, that's me.
J.A.R.V.I.S: Would you prefer a different title?
Nora: No, that's all good. Thanks.
J.A.R.V.I.S: *fussy* Please enjoy your stay, then.
Nora: Did I just insult a computer programme?
Steve: No! He's just...yes.
Nora: Hookay, so I'm off to a great start.

Angharad: Shess and Mr. Barnes are coming over. I'm going under the sofa.
Elliot: No! Don't you do this again!


Heee! Awww. I can see Betti bounding over to be sociable and helpful.

Betti: *sticks nose under the couch, tail wagging enthusiastically* Hi! So, you're Winnie's boyfriend's daemon, huh? I'm Betti. Are you okay?
Angharad: Yes. Yes, I'm...fine, thank you.
Betti: Cool. *wiggles underneath the couch* So, you like science? I guess that's okay. Do you like history, too?
Angharad: Yes...
Betti: Awesome!

Cam: Stop being rude. She's nervous.

Bucky: That's only because he doesn't know how to drive. Who doesn't know how to drive?
Shess: Let's be honest. If he did know how to drive, you'd be wondering why someone living in New York would know that.
Bucky:...Fine.

Issie: You're right. That red panda is vicious, look at her.
Shess: No one is that clumsy.
Issie: *raised eyebrow*
Shess: You don't count, you had an excuse.
Issie: Really? What was my excuse?
Shess: ...I don't know, Bucky and I always just assumed Steve pissed off gravity at some point.
Issie: That would actually make a lot of sense.

I was originally going to have Tess ask Steve for JJ's information and receive it, but Steve instantly got really protective of JJ which I wasn't expecting, so I had to have it go a slightly different way.

Steve: But what do you want him for?
Tess: *explanation of photos and model release forms*
Steve: What would the photos be used for?
Tess: *has strong urge to say 'well, certainly not porn!'* I don't know. What people want to use it for, I suppose.

In the end, Steve agrees to call JJ and let him know that Tess is looking for him and pass her information a long.

Steve: I don't know, why didn't she just look up your e-mail or phone number herself?
JJ: I don't think I told her my name. The Internet isn't magic Dad, you can't just Stark Search 'guy with fedora who rescues kittens' and come up with Joseph James Rogers of Brooklyn, New York.
Steve: Why didn't you tell her your name? That's rude, JJ.
JJ: There were kittens, Dad!
Steve: Okay, that's a good point.

The fact that red pandas stand on their hind legs in an effort to look scary but only end up looking cuter makes this dialogue even funnier.

I feel there must be long hours lost during JJ's childhood where he and Steve would rescue kittens and puppies and play with them well after Nora's called them for dinner six times.

That makes this gif make so much more sense, but it looks more like:

Angharad: Oh God, don't hurt me! Oh, it's just Diane. That's embarrassing. Look normal, Elliot.
Elliot: I am trying so hard.

formerly lifeinsomniacjoonscribble on June 23rd, 2015 01:25 am (UTC)
I'm sure this information is super important to you.

Animal: Red panda
Name: Angharad
Nickname: Sometimes Cam calls her 'Harry.'
Major Personality Traits: Angharad is a fairly quiet, sometimes high strung daemon. When she's in her element, like teaching or giving a lecture on a topic she and Elliot are excited about, she can get quite animated and sociable. When wandering into unknown territory, such as meeting in-laws, Angharad has been known to trip over herself or fall off tables.
How he/she sleeps: Angharad likes to sleep curled up in a tight ball. Usually Cam is wrapped up against her thick fur.
How he/she travels with his/her human: Usually Angharad walks next to Elliot, but whenever they're running late, Elliot will pick her up and start jogging.
What he/she does when his/her human is at rest: Angharad will curl up on Elliot's lap if they're watching a movie or reading a book. If Elliot is working on a paper, she'll sit on his desk by his laptop and try to keep his notes in order for him.
Favourite forms before he/she settled: Somewhat unusually, Angharad always liked being a red panda. Even before she settled, she usually favored that form. But when Elliot was little, she'd sometimes try out being a rabbit (like Elliot's mom's daemon) and sometimes an eagle (like Elliot's dad's daemon). But neither was as comfortable as being a red panda.
What his/her voice sounds like: Usually very quiet, almost bordering on timid but usually described as soothing and rhythmic. It's pretty good for teaching.

The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on June 23rd, 2015 02:37 am (UTC)
It's totally super important to me! Facts for everyone!

Angharad seems like a real sweetheart. I can see her little paws trying to sort out Elliot's papers for him. I feel like Tyr would be her biggest ally at family reunions, having had experience on being the normal one there.

Svana: Greetings, small red friend of Cassimir! From what realm do you hail?
Angharad: Uhhhh...
Tyr: She just wants to know where you're from.

I don't have Mati sorted out yet, but on the subject of 'daemons for characters from our heads', here's Jamie Stark's daemon:


Animal: American Beaver
Name: Melisante (meaning 'strong worker')
Nickname: Mel, Melly. Melinator (by Mim)
Major Personality Traits: Mel is a gentle, sweet daemon, who would rather be doing some work than going to a party or making a speech. She has a good sense of humor, and is quick witted, but she's a touch too serious for her own good when it comes to herself, and has a tendency to get very upset if she or Jamie have made a mistake. Jamie's learned to have a tougher skin about criticism, but Mel tends to view any variation of 'this isn't quite right' as 'this is all wrong'. She likes to get her hands dirty, and she loves a bit of family time, but for a Stark, she's a little on the shy side.
How he/she sleeps: Under Jamie's arm, with her tail under his pillow. Jamie's husband's daemon sleeps up against her cheek.
How he/she travels with his/her human: Jamie does a lot of walking through large buildings and from place to place, and Mel has long since given up the notion she can retain any sense of dignity while trying to keep up with him. She does a remarkably fast waddle-run, but it is not becoming or suave. In the water, she's fast as anything, but Stark Industries does not have canals. Jamie often ends up carrying her on his hip, which is also not suave, but what are you going to do?
What he/she does when his/her human is at rest: Mel usually has something between her paws, and is working away at it. She doesn't sit still much, even if Jamie is. He's very attentive and calm in a board meeting, she's often not paying attention at all.
Favourite forms before he/she settled: Anything with hands, as she was always a builder. She went through an otter phase, but that made Mim sort of sad and happy, and Mel felt weird about it, even though she liked being an otter. She also went through a rebellious snake phase, but that only lasted for a week before she got distracted by marmosets.
What his/her voice sounds like: She has a measured, mellow voice, that can command very well if needed but prefers not to. When she gets excited, she lisps because her teeth are so large and she's too excited to curve her mouth to avoid them.

Tyr: She just wants to know where you're from.


Angharad: Oh, we're born and raised in New York. New York all the way.
Svana: Ah, exactly like Casimir and Lady Winnifred! And are you a noble warrior as they?
Angharad: I'm sorry, warrior?
Tyr: Have you ever been in a fight?
Angharad: Sometimes during faculty meetings, I guess. The head of our department is pretty difficult.

You probably should float it too hard, though, Shess'll get parental on you. She does that. No doors are safe, though Issie is actually worse about the door thing, she, like, hates doors.
Angharad: *desperate look*
Tyr: It's fine. Just nod, she'll keep talking and you can get through that way.
Mim: Oh my God, I'm right here and...wow, people actually do that a lot. Now I feel hurt. Anyway...

Tess: I'M REALLY SORRY ABOUT ALL THE YELLING! WE'RE GOING NOW!
JJ: IF YOU WANT TO HANG OUT, WE'RE GOING TO THE GAMES ROOM!
Mati: Why doesn't this place have intercoms?
Betti: Oh, it does. This is just more embarrassing.

Hahaha!!

Cam: You know, just for revenge, we should totally have sex.
Angharad: Sure! I mean, hey!
Winnie: It'll probably freak my dad out more if we just stayed completely quiet for hours.
Elliot: Sounds creepy but weirdly doable. I've got a book on my StarkPad I've been meaning to finish.
Winnie: And I have an autopsy report to finish up. We could probably kill about two hours in complete silence.
Elliot: I get the feeling that either way your dad is going to do something really unpleasant to me.

Bucky: JARVIS, what is going on in there?!
JARVIS: I'm afraid my privacy protocols forbid me from sharing that information without permission from Miss Winnifred.
Shess: Bucky is her father, he's allowed to violate privacy protocols in the name of her safety.
JARVIS: I can pick up no signs of distress from Miss Winnifred's room. Her safety is not at stake. May I make a suggestion?
Bucky: What?
JARVIS: Enjoy yourself at the gathering, and try to remain calm.
Shess: But--
Mim: Dude, even Tony's AI thinks you need a chill pill--pun totally intended--, you might want to reevaluate your life choices.

I was just editing the next chapter of my Howard and Maria fic, and I started to laugh because I realized I'd solved the communication problem by downgrading the moderate angst to mild angst. That is apparently the default level of angst at which I operate.

This statement in someways probably had Bucky even more stressed out.

It's good that you found your parameters! I've yet to figure out how high my fluff levels can go.

At some point, Winnie has to point out that Bucky can't exactly be too high horse about sex, considering she's only alive because he accidentally knocked up Joan.

I think you've been doing very well lately!

Well, eventually, Joan might have a talk with Bucky about reevaluating his choices. Also, after he and Shess actually get to know Elliot and Angharad after Winnie's laid up after a surgery, they decide that Elliot and Angharad are not so bad. They're actually pretty great.

Angharad: Mr. Barnes told Elliot he wasn't a bad kid.
Cam: *slightly hazy from the drugs* That's so much good progress!
Angharad: I still bumped into a chair leg when we were saying goodbye. But it was a happy stumble. Not an afraid stumble.
Cam: I can do a happy stumble now I think.
Angharad: Maybe after another nap?
The Writer They Call Tayawanderingbard on June 23rd, 2015 05:25 am (UTC)
Awww! Happy stumbles indeed. ^_^

I'm off to bed now. G'night!

Goodnight! As always, it's been grand doing random dialogue snippets from a crossover AU verse that's grown like weeds!
