I nearly choked.
Shouldn't Steve be sterile too, really? Otherwise, what's the reason for why there's not an army of US government created Captain America kids running around? You'd think that'd be the next logical step when they realized they couldn't recreate the serum...
Well, since the serum is an enhancement, it’s unlikely to be passed through genetics (the doctors probably tested this, somehow, haha). Steve’s kids are more likely to inherit his asthma and weak stature.
OH MY GOD THO
A SINISTER GOVT EXPERIMENT TO CREATE AN ARMY OF TINY CAPTAIN AMERICAS
STEVE FINDS OUT ABOUT IT AT SOME POINT
AND IT’S BASICALLY ELEVEN TOW-HEADED, ASTHMATIC, ALLERGIC, IMMUNO-COMPROMISED LITTLE BEANPOLES WITH BAD ATTITUDES
SOCKED AWAY SOMEWHERE
LIKE IN A WAREHOUSE OR WHATEVER
WITH A COUPLE OF OVERWHELMED INTERNS BABYSITTING THEM
BECAUSE THE RESEARCHERS HAD ALL THEIR FUNDING TAKEN AWAY WHEN CAPTAIN AMERICA’S SECRET UBERMENCH CLONES TURNED OUT TO BE A BUNCH OF WEAKLINGS
AND NOBODY KNOWS WHAT TO DO WITH THIS GAGGLE OF KIDS (WHO ARE SHRILL AND UNMANAGEABLE AND WHEEZE A LOT)
EXCEPT MAKE SURE THEY GET ADEQUATE MEDICAL CARE AND REGULAR MEALS
AND REGRET THEIR IN RETROSPECT VERY OBVIOUS ERRORS
AND HOPE STEVE DOESN’T FIND OUT
WHICH OF COURSE HE DOES
BACK AT THE TOWER
EVERYONE’S INHALERS KEEP GETTING MIXED UP
THERE ARE COLORED PENCILS EVERYWHERE
A FISTFIGHT ABOUT THE NATURE OF JUSTICE ENSUES BETWEEN THE 9 YEAR OLD ONE AND ONE OF THE 11 YEAR OLDS
This. Is. My. Fetish.
fiance and I are finally tackling the bedroom. there are boxes that have not been opened in the 9 months we’ve lived here. It is a beast but we will slay it.
I may have bought the @ufyh app today in preparation for this momentous occasion. <3

Imagine Steve, Bucky, and the other Avengers doing the Ice Bucket Challenge.
Sam gets nominated first, by an old army friend, and of course he can’t resist nominating Captain America. Just the ice jokes alone are enough to make it impossible to resist.
And Steve’s a little shit, so he ends his video- which goes viral- by turning to camera and saying in his innocent “Aw shucks, Ma’am” tv voice “I would like to nominate my best guy, Bucky Barnes, for the Ice Bucket Challenge; and also, Tony Stark, who I’m sure will also make a sizable donation to this worthy cause”.
And Bucky’s just like “You fucking punk, when I get my hands on you”, but he does it (obviously) because it is for a good cause, and it can’t be any worse than actually being frozen (Steve assures him on this point).
Tony’s just insulted that Steve would even doubt he’d be making a donation in the first place. In typical Tony Stark fashion, his challenge video involves buckets of iced champagne being poured over him by bikini clad women. Pepper’s not remotely within the realm of being impressed by this, until she gets to pour the last bucket over him herself and watches him struggle to contain a scream.
Everyone thinks Tony’s an idiot when he then nominates Natasha, Clint, and Bruce, but the video of Nat and Clint drinking vodka in a sunken bath filled with ice before shirtless Steve and Bucky come in to pour dustbins of iced water over their stoic heads arouses new internet memes (such as Natasha Romanoff jokes which seem to follow the same formula as Chuck Norris jokes) in addition to the already existing ones about Iced Bucky Challenges and such.
It turns out that Bruce does Hulk out, as feared. But the Hulk likes the iced bath, so they leave him with a rubber duck and monitor him until he reverts to normal so they can fish Bruce out. He duly nominates Thor, who has coincidentally just arrived.
Thor insists on his challenge involving dropping him into the frigid seas of the Arctic Circle in his underwear from the quinjet. Nat and Clint nearly trip over themselves scrambling to pilot him out there, because, despite their reputations for stoicism, they’re pranksters at heart.
To anyone who’s tried to have a verbal conversation with me lately, this will look really familiar. About 5 times a day I’ll be in mid-sentence and just break I do this. I suddenly can’t remember words like “spatula” or names of characters from shows I’m currently watching - and it’s not that I don’t know the word. I either can’t connect the idea of what I need with a word, or I can’t connect the image in my head with the word that represents it, or connect the word itself with the muscle movements to form the word. Which is really troublesome when the word I can’t find is something like “double vision”, as happened today at the dentist.
