Steve/Darcy prompts! Steve and Darcy go to church together. Steve/Darcy sex without vaginal intercourse. Steve/Darcy, roleplaying. Have fun!
Out of all the prompts here, for some reason my brain glommed onto the ‘going to church’ one. I can’t quite explain it, LOL. It’s probably a lot tamer than you had envisioned… ;)

Title translates to: We Have the Will and the Heart. This is technically in the same universe as a handful of other ficlets I’ve written, but all you need to know for this one is that Steve and Darcy have been in a relationship for a while now, since before CA:TWS, and it’s super secret. That’s about it. Thanks for Meri and Rainne for the advance read-throughs on this.
Written in response to rembrandtswife's prompt about Steve and Darcy going to church. This is probably not quite what she envisioned, but the images struck and I had to follow it through to the end.
Thanks for reading!
Arrow Fanart: A Man Cannot Live By Two Names.
HOLY FUCKING SHIT. Please, feel free to go to Vancouver and tell them to pay you so much money and hire you to make the Arrow posters from now on because God bless this is amazing.
OMG, this is GOOD!! Thank you.
WOW. Now THIS is how you do a poster. Shit.
Remember that time Skye was left to her own devices and she stole a car, purposely crashed it, broke into someone’s house, disarmed a security guard, impersonated a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, hacked into secure financial files and then showed up in the middle of the desert with a new leather jacket and a lamborghini.
Guys. Seriously. I just rambled on an email chain about this but seriously.
Give me all the Darcy and Thor are bros fic. Tell me about them discussing all the hot ladies and gents they’re surrounded by while living in the tower. Give me the stories where they’re not banging each other but slamming down beers together. Spin me tales of Darcy and Thor food adventures exploring NYC. Yarns of getting kicked out of dive bars. Thor being Darcy’s wingman. Darcy introducing Thor to snap chat. Darcy’s instagram being more popular than Tony’s because of all the pictures of Thor and puppies/Thor and kittens/Thor looking in delight at the tree all lit up at Christmas.
Ugh. They totally share an IG account. Of shenanigans.
She plans his stag night.
They have a secret handshake.
They disappear for a weekend (Jane sort of notices but she busy like answering the Questions of Science. Plus she knows how truelove5ever she and Thor are. Plus Darcy respects the relatively monogamous bond she and Thor have. Darcy appreciates the pretty of both Jane and Thor separately and together but dating him? Pass. ) and neither of them speak of the happenings that happen but. There are matching bro tattoos that come out of that weekend and possibly an international incident.
Platonic friendmates for life, yo.
Darcy/Steve(/Bucky?) Books, reading, bookshop
"Eventually, I think that the government is going to cotton on to the fact that while I make practically negative money, I enjoy some mighty fine perks and is going to want to collect on the large sum of money they loaned me to go to college." Darcy says, shelving a book, an actual book in an actual library in Stark Tower. Stark might not know this room exists, a little lending library for the superhero types. But it’s filled to the brim with books left in the tower. They just all get shunted here, and Darcy likes coming in here and making herself useful.
As opposed to all the rest of the times when she’s not useful, of course, which is never. She’s always of use. But tonight she’s dragged Steve and Bucky to the room with her after Bucky expressed astonishment at the sight of one of these semi-mythical paper books that Darcy was reading. If he missed them, then he can help her sort them, that’s the rule.
"How much are we talking about here? Your loans, that is?" Steve asks, lips curled tight in a scowl.
Darcy doesn’t want to think about it, “Five years of a private university isn’t cheap, Steve. Even with my scholarships and grants, it’s…substantial.” Darcy makes it sound like she’s not even sure of the number. That’s not true. She knows the number like it’s tattooed on her heart.
"Stark would probably buy you out if you asked him," Bucky says from a different pile of books. "Drop in the bucket probably."
"I don’t really want to be beholden to Stark for the rest of my life. It’s okay, I’m on one of the income based programs and seeing as I have no income, I’m not paying anything yet."
"Yet." Her boys say in unison, but it’s Steve who continues on, "What happens where you want to move on from here?"
She’s thought about that; she’s happy. She’s got two men that she doesn’t deserve and a relationship status with them that would make her great-aunt Patty faint dead away. The work she does is mostly challenging, even if she doesn’t get paid. She should be getting paid for it, if she were honest. She’d likely be able to get a good salary with her experience and recommendations by now.
“You are going to get restless someday,” Bucky says, “Probably not with us, but with all of this. Not because it isn’t exciting but because it isn’t…”
“If you say stable or conducive to having kids, I will find something to shoot you with.”
“That’s not it, you’ve got better things in your head than unpaid intern or the person that sorts the books people leave in the lobby,” Bucky’s firm, firmer than he usually is with her, “And eventually you are going to wake up and realize you want to run with the wolves and where will you be?”
Darcy doesn’t like where this is heading, “I don’t want either of you paying off my student loans.” But it’s true. She wants to be useful, and right now, she can live with that meaning that she’s of use to Jane but there’s a big world out there and she’s treading water until she figures out what that really means to her.
“Okay, we won’t,” Steve says, because he’s the one that actually will listen to what she says. He may still go behind her back, but he listened at some point, “But maybe you should start by asking for a salary.”
Darcy shuffles a couple of books around, stacks and restacks them without any order. She’s got more opportunity here than most of her classmates, even those that didn’t need massive amounts of financial aid to complete school. And she isn’t using it for anything except landing the two best men anyone could want. Totally laudable goal, but it doesn’t really help anyone but herself.
“I’ll do some research, I guess, and start figuring out what that should be.” Because when the boys are united, they are usually right about something.
