Thor: Thor sleeps anywhere, and naked. This has caused a few issues.
Steve: on his back or side, straight as he can, barely moving. This is a habit left over from camps and barracks, squashed in with other soldiers, and from before, from the cold bitter new York winters when he was a kid. The cold was dangerous for him, screwed with his lungs, so every night Bucky would come to his place and squeeze into his narrow bed to keep him warm. He was like a furnace. Steve’s elbows and knees were sharp as knives so he made sure to keep extra still so his friend would be comfortable. Bucky’s warmth probably saved his life.
Natasha: Fetal position. Natasha curls up like a cat, all curved limbs and tousled hair, one hand by her face. She looks innocent, almost at peace. This is because her other hand is wrapped around the gun beneath her pillow.
Tony: Sleeps spreadeagle, mouth open, limbs splayed, wherever he collapses. He goes days and days without sleep; he is the wraith in Avengers tower, making coffee and scrambled eggs at 4am and disappearing back to his lab. Steve’s not much for sleep either, and he’s the only one besides Pepper who can gain access to Tony’s workshop, so he often goes downstairs to find Tony passed out on the floor with a wrench clutched in his fist and oil in his hair. If Tony ever wonders why he falls asleep on the workshop floor and wakes up in his bed with his shoes removed, he never mentions it to Steve.
Bruce: sleeps more than any of them. It’s maybe a metabolism thing. Hulking out uses up a lot of energy, so whenever he shrinks back to regular Bruce-size he eats enough for three and then sleeps for at least 16 hours. He sleeps in fetal position like Natasha, but tighter, knees tucked up almost to his chest, his whole body a clenched fist. It looks almost painful. He frowns and mutters to himself, and sometimes he cries out. There is an unspoken agreement amongst the rest of the team that they won’t mention it.
Clint: Sleeps with his eyes open. Sitting up. On the couch, or on top of the fridge, or on the stairs. Basically wherever affords the best position to scare the shit out of Tony at 3 in the morning.
so I’m reading through this, and I’m like “wow, this is spot-on, this person has a really good grasp of the avengers”
and then I read clint’s
and now I am crying.
i'm a dead sloth who pretends to have friends and social life. also known as the queen of procrastination.

HELL NO: THE SENSIBLE HORROR FILM
Tired of characters in horror films making stupid decisions, like entering that haunted house or gallivanting in the woods in the dead of night? What if they knew better? This video from pixelspersecond explores a world where people know exactly when to get the hell out of dodge.

So Now You’re a Necromancer: Beginner’s Guide.
(There might be a post about this but I haven’t come across it yet.(gif credit))
The Winter Soldier doesn’t speak more than he needs to.
While his programming is still strong enough that his face doesn’t tell a thing, the way he talks is a total tell-tale.
In a line just preceding this, he is efficiently curt-Она моя, найди его. ‘She’s mine,find him.’ Only the basics one needs to understand the order; it’s completely emotionless and sparse.
It is interesting, compared to the downright chilling calmness with which he carries himself during battle. Everyone else might be scurrying and running, but he never rushes. He isn’t non-verbose because he’s pressed for time, he is curt because he was designed to be brutally efficient in every aspect, including talking.
So why on Earth, when facing his mission and having him on gunpoint, he says what is probably his longest line in the whole film?
Why would he even bother to speak? Many other objectives have talked to him, probably pleaded,promised,accused. Why should he care what the man on the bridge is saying, when he is supposed to be dead in a moment?
Perhaps, “Who is Bucky?" could be acceptable, given it’s information his superiors might find useful. He doesn’t know or care, it’s just another sentence he’ll add when he is told "Mission report,now”.
But “Who the hell is Bucky?" is just unnatural for the Winter Soldier. A completely inefficient curse thrown in. Inefficient, that is, for a less-than-talkative assassin.
Cursing relieves emotion, though. We curse when we’re scared,angry,hurt,frustrated,elated,amazed. When there is an overpowering emotion we need to express in every way possible.
That little ‘the hell' is the human inside the weapon. What could be strong enough to overpower the sterile straightforward programming, though?
For the first time in 70 years someone gives him a name. There is recognition and emotion all over his mission’s face. Emotion that isn’t horror, but disbelief,relief,hope.
Someone names him and goes beyond that-shows him he has much more to tell.
It fucks him up. The name stirs up shards of memories, not enough for them to surface, but enough to disbalance the Soldier’s inner order. For the first time during a mission something is interrupting his flow of action and it’s something he can’t overcome.
In that moment he is frustrated, both at the turmoil the target caused in him and the uprising need to know more. His programming doesn’t function well when there are emotions present. He knows he has to shut them down in order to finish his business, but for the first time, he doesn’t want to.
It all results in the most sincere and emotional thing he has ever said since he became the Winter Soldier.
"Who the hell is Bucky?...Is this me?”
