HIMYM AU: Barney finds out that Robin works for S.H.I.E.L.D as Agent Hill (Part 1)

They’re mixing two different universes together and yet it still makes waaay more sense than the finale.

….you know what, it really does.

HIMYM finale headcanon accepted. And then they pretend to get divorced and Robin/Maria distances herself from her friends and a couple years later someone captures footage of Maria Hill during a big superhero battle and she has to come clean to everybody and THEY ALL RESUME BEING FRIENDS AND NONE OF THE REST OF THE FINALE HAPPENS and also, later, the group accidentally meets the Avengers, and Barney spends the entire time convinced Tony is hitting on Robin (which Tony plays into to screw with him) and Lily, Tracy and Natasha disappear somewhere to bond and Steve is both charmed and weirded out by Marshall and Ted is left to try and socialize with Clint, who just sits there quietly letting Ted dig himself a deeper and deeper hole as his questions and overtures get more and more awkward. 


So Tony lets Barney off the hook and Barney immediately starts awkwardly fanboying all over him, and Clint lets Ted off the hook and cracks up and Ted is all “wait what you have a facial expression?!

And Robin/Maria goes to find Natasha and drink until the whole thing is over. Never again. This is never happening ever again. (It happens again.)

there’s a bunch of mcu happening on my dash, so here, have some fic recs i never posted

And Here We Go Again - Natasha and Clint take some downtime.  Until.

when levees break - Tony starts having PTSD flashbacks again.

Ascertaining The Relative Safety Of One’s Environment - When Tony wakes up he likes kissing someone. It’s not the weirdest thing in the world. It just happens to be the weirdest thing in the world that Bruce is willing to think about right now.

a place in this world - BRUCE LIKES TAYLOR SWIFT

10 Parables of Rapport Four tokens of friendship, three romantic gestures, two confessions of love – and one kiss Tony meant with all his heart.


In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, magic and science are said to be one and the same.

In Iron Man 3 the Earth scientist Maya Hansen created and weaponized Extremis, which made people inhumanly strong, nearly indestructible, and gave them the power of extreme heat, at the risk of burning out of control and destroying themselves.

In Thor 2, we learned that the Dark Elves had an ancient magic known as the Kurse, which made them incredibly strong, nearly indestructible, and appeared to have a burning effect, at the price of certain death when the power burned out of control and consumed them several hours later.

Essentially, Maya Hansen’s Extremis is an isolated development of technology that the Dark Elves had created thousands of years in the past.

Does this mean that Maya Hansen would, in effect, be recognized on other planets as a sorceress? I’m gonna go with yes, because that is just incredibly cool.

petition for Avengers 2 to be a musical and the only person who doesn’t know its a musical is Tony

(via garzabird)


The Hulk gave a small grunt which probably meant something profound in Hulkspeak which unfortunately was not a language Tony was fluent in. But given the lack of destruction, Tony figured the grunt didn’t translate as anything bad.


Do Roy or the rest of this team know Rhodey, because they probably got into SHIELD through former military experience? Do Roy and Tony get along, or do they get along like wet cats?

Riza and Natasha get along, they like each other. Riza’s always gonna make sure to position herself between Roy and Natasha whenever they’re in the same room together, though. Natasha respects that.


Fuery is Tony’s favorite.

Every now and then Phil Coulson and Maes Hughes get coffee together, and everyone gets a spate of very interesting assignments afterwards.

Trying to figure out how to put FMA characters in the Avengers’ verse.

Do you have the Rockbells work for Stark Industries? Or is Rockbell Automail an independent company that’s been resisting mergers and take-overs for decades, because while they’d like the resources to reach more clients, they don’t trust larger companies? Takes medical and engineering degrees to make automail, and maybe a few other degrees.

[but then Obadiah’s gone, and Tony shut down the weapons branch, and got into green energy, and Stark Industries is starting to look like a more appealing business partner…]

Mustang & co are a SHIELD team, and Hughes got recruited from some Intelligence agency.

But then the question is, how do we cover Alchemy?

If we incorporate comics stuff, it could be either some long-practiced but-little-known magic, or it could be a mutant power.

If we stick with the Avengers movies, the Elrics and their Alchemy could be from Asgard or one of the other worlds connected to the World Tree. Maybe the Gate incident yanked them into Midgard.

In which case, they wouldn’t have met Winry & Pinako until after that. Maybe the Gate dumped them in the Rockbells’ workshop.

And then SHIELD Agents Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye showed up to investigate…yes. Yes this works.

mzminola asked: "Don’t get me started on comics only Avengers, because I would literally be here all day." didn't you say you were bored tho.


oh god

Rhodey doesn’t knit. I feel like he has another weird ass hobby, like whittling or something.
