Just a kid from Brooklyn
|Website:||World On Fire|
|Bio:||I'm Steve Rogers. My alternate name is fairly well known, but I don't feel the need to advertise it here.|
I'm still an Avenger, training new ones. Tony (stark_snark), and Clint and Natasha (widow_hawk) are all getting up there in age, though you wouldn't know it to look at them. They're on reserve status now, though, and help out with training the next generation that'll take over protecting the keep when they're gone. We get a lot of kids right out of high school, or even worse, still in it, with a legal status that would otherwise doom them to the broken foster system. A lot of them are mutants, wanting a safe place to go to that's not Xavier's. We're as much a refuge and family for them as we are a 'superhero team' that does our part in keeping the people and places we love safe.
I'm happily in love with and married to Shara Rogers (changereflected), who gave me the lovely Penny as a step-daughter. The 'step' part is just a legal semantic, though. I also adopted Russell and Fletcher Tringham (botanical_bros), in the wake of the temporal hellmouth throwing a country's worth of people at us. They're both grown and doing their own thing, though they still live in the house I have out in Wyoming. It's an ideal place for them, and it frees them up to focus on building their own lives.
I'm also a family man in general, I guess, so I was never not going to let them use it.
We have another member of our family that has a non-conventional place in our home, Ingrid Kief (ingrid_kief), a former Knight Templar from a place called Thedas, dropped here by something called the Fade in her world interacting with the thing that used to be Iowa. The vast differences in culture and technology between her world and ours makes Wyoming a more comfortable place for her than NYC, so she lives out there with the boys.
I'm a long time friend of Samantha Dayspring-Summers (mama_rattler), and her drinking buddy, which is funny when she forgets I can't get drunk. Her kids- both generations of them -are a good bunch, and Brian (just_for_spite) actually is sort of a part-time Avenger, splitting his time between home with his family and here in NYC. He's got a helluva past, bad enough that Sammy actually entered Bahamut's service in exchange for being able to stick around and keep up with him to work on undoing a few centuries of a real bad situation.
In other words, he fits in with the Summers family just fine.
There's also Roy and Riza Mustang (roy_and_riza) whose doorstep I like to darken. They tend to come darken mine more these days, since they adopted a different Edward Elric (fullmetalprime) from the one that was already here that Sammy beat them to claiming. He's a good match for the family too, and unfortunately, the way he fits in means that I'm not always the easiest person for him to be around. I try to minimize how often I'm over there, keep him from feeling trapped in his own home.
Really, it would've been easier to just say that I'm close to the entire Spandex Brigade, as they call themselves. They're a community of mutants and supernaturals and a few other odds and ends who all have some broken or missing pieces that they've patchworked with each other. I have an extended family through them that I just didn't growing up.
There's one family member, however, that I miss very keenly. That's one part of my family I can't quite move on from. I moved on from Peggy, found a new right partner, but I'll never have another brother like Bucky. He's part of the reason I won't move to the Avengers Tower- that means leaving Brooklyn, where we grew up together. It's a piece of home that I can't walk away from.
Not much else to tell, I suppose.
