You never really did come home, did you?
I’ve been talking about my Avengers part for the past couple days and I finally have pictures!
First a bit of background: A couple months ago my friends and I started joking around and assigning Avengers to people in our friend group according to their personalities. Our Bruce Banner is an actual neuroscientist working on her PhD, our Tony brings the the party every time, our Cap is almost literally the Captain in every awesome way, our Hawkeye is the sassiest thing on legs, our Black Widow is deadly and I’m Thor because, idk, I’m clueless about Midgardian customs and like poptarts. We even have a SHIELD headquarters, a Director Fury and a Coulson. We took this ridiculous idea and fucking ran with it. What you really have to know is that everything we made for the party was intended for a specific person.
1. We sent out invitations as mission briefings in manila folders made to look like they came from SHIELD. We block printed the SHIELD logo onto them and stamped each folder with top secret and put a Loki’d in behind the briefing. They looked so freaking awesome and everyone got two to take home and use.
2. I got the Captain America trading cards printed at Staples and then we smeared red paint on them and threw them down on the table in dramatic moments. I tried to get a picture through a glass table, but it only sort of worked.
Funny story: Our Bruce cut her hand while cooking our Asgardian feast and I said, “Well if you’re already bleeding…” so there’s some authentic blood on those cards and I had people telling me I should be committed the whole night. IT’S CALLED DEDICATION TO THE CAUSE GUYS.
3. The Loki pinata. We threw this entire party together in a day and a half and made the pinata the night before and we really thought it was going to burst open on the first hit, but every Avenger got to have a wack at him. I was laughing too hard to get a good picture of him after he had exploded his candy innards, but he looked really sad.
4 - 5. Our Asgardian feast with real mead! Our Cap’s boyfriend does home brewing, so we whored her out to get mead for our party. Our Bruce cooked up most of the meal and it was delicious. There was chicken thighs done with lemon and garlic and herbed bread and cheese on the side. We had no vegetables besides potatoes because ASGARDIANS REQUIRE MORE THAN RABBIT FOOD FOOLISH MIDGARDIAN.
The placesetters were the Avengers’ butts. Yeah, we’re classy.
There was also a platter on the center of the table which contained the prize dish: shawarma.
6 - 8. Cap and I got creative and made our Avengers etched glasses and their symbols out of glittery craft foam. Originally they were supposed to be cupcake toppers but our favourite cupcake place was closed. :(
9 - 10. I was so disappointed that I didn’t get any strange looks at Staples when I told them I wanted a 20” poster of Samuel L Jackson and Captain America trading cards. If you can’t guess already, we played “pin the eye patch on Director Fury.” Next time you try playing the ‘pin something on something’ game, do it on the ceiling because it increases the fun by 400%.
We wanted to smash glasses like Thor does but the logistics of that are annoying and who wants to clean up glass? What’s socially acceptable to smash? TERRY’S CHOCOLATE ORANGES. There was a lot of “I like this orange. ANOTHER.”
We also had a rule that whatever drink you made yourself that night was called Budapest. You had to have a different drink than everyone else so that way we were able to say “You and I remember Budapest very differently.”
I don’t think we’ll ever be able to top this party.
My friends and I had an Avengers party and we sent out invitations as mission briefings. As you do.
So. Because I’m insane, I turned the fanfic The Act of Creation Will Be Your Salvation by scifigrl47 into a hardcover book. And got class credit for it. 100%, I may add. AND my professor wants it in the school gallery show. Heck yeah, man. It literally took weeks of work, but I am pleased.
If you have not read this fic, go do so. Seriously. I TURNED IT INTO A FREAKING ACTUAL BOOK. I would not have done that with something that isn’t quality, man.
