this is how I see their entire relationship
And he just ran by with plastic Cap shield screaming, “Take down Hydra!” with about eight other kids chasing him.
Omg, he just skidded to a halt and back tracked and said, “Hey mom!” And he plucked one little girl from the cluster of boys and said, “This is Black Widow!”
That was so Steve Rogers it hurt.
nick fury has got his arms around natasha like she’s the mother of his child and tony stark is that child and they’ve just heard the news about what tony did at school today and they don’t know how to best discipline him or how they manged to raise such a failure of a child
Natasha Romanoff: S.H.I.E.L.D Agent, Russian Spy, Assassian, Matchmaker
Okay what I love most about this is Nat knows his neighbors.
(okay I love everything about this, especially Natasha continuing this conversation like they totally just didn’t jump out of a plane and murder/incapacitate twelve people, but we’ll focus on one thing in particular)
It’s really fueling my headcanon that Natasha just comes over and bothers Steve
when she’s boredsometimes. She just comes in through the window sometimes, picks the lock when Steve isn’t home and rearranges his furniture (“The harmony of the room was off-balance” “That is a load of bullshit” “Have you gone undercover as a New Age specialist? No? Shut up. Harmony”), replaces his healthy food with microwave dinners. Things like that. Natasha is a world-class troll.
But she has cased his neighbors. She’s watching his back, making sure he’s in a good neighborhood, that he’s got a safe space to come home to.
STEVE PROTECTS HER ON THE FRONT LINES, SHE PROTECTS HIM ON THE HOME FRONT
