I have no excuses...  
I just like this meme.

Give me the name of a character I write or have written and I'll tell you:
-What they smell like
-How they sleep (sleeping position, schedule, etc)
-What music they enjoy
-How much time they spend getting ready every morning
-Their favourite thing to collect
-Their family (siblings, parents, extended, etc.)
-A weird/obscure fear they have
-A secret skill


OCS and AUs welcome, as always. Feel free to ask for a couple of characters.

Putting this here to make it easier to respond from my iPad if necessary:



In the past I have done: Anderson, Mummy Holmes, Arthur Shappey, Kevin Ryan, Molly Hooper, Sarah Sawyer, Abby Watson, Mycroft Holmes, Q, Tony Stark (and Demira), and Sherlock Holmes.

Steve Rogers and Issie?

What they smell like: America! Back in the day before the serum, Steve smelled mostly of medicine and shaving cream (he didn't need to shave much, but he did anyway). The fancy cologne for guys wasn't really a thing, and even post-serum, he smelled basically soapy, with a tinge of cigarette smoke (not his own, but everyone around him smoked). After he woke up and was allowed to know what year it was, he was given appropriate modern day hygiene products. Issie thinks Coulson probably picked them out. In any case, his cologne has a fresh, minty, pine scent to it.
How they sleep: Steve sleeps on his back, because that's how you sleep in the hospital when you've got things sticking out of you, and that's where he did a lot of sleeping as a kid. Then he got into the army, and sleeping your back was the best way to not fall out. Issie used to sleep pasted along his side, but after the serum, she was able to sleep on his stomach without bothering him, and she does that now, with her nose up by his chin. Neither of them sleep much--they don't need it, and Issie is a little worried they might not wake up again for another 70 years.
What music they enjoy: Steve is the biggest grandpa when it comes to modern music; he just doesn't get it. He misses the really happy, positive, elegant lyrics of the torch songs of his day. He likes the more retro singers, like Michael Bublé, who cover old songs but pop them up a bit. Mim has told Issie that makes him a pussy. Issie is totally cool with that.
How much time they spend getting ready every morning: Literally ten minutes. In and out of the shower, hair brushed, face shaved, smelly things splashed on. Issie figured out that hair gel is basically bryll cream, so he's figured out how to style it now. He works on 'there is no hot water left in this crappy New York orphanage' and 'you have five minutes to shower, soldier' time. A bath is a real luxury, and it's still hard for him to get his head around the fact that you can just have a bath and the water is all hot and you don't have to let someone else use it when you're done or use someone else's water. Issie splashes about a bit when he gets out, though. She likes the bubble bath stuff, which Mim assures her doesn't make her a pussy. Dudes in bubble baths are hot, apparently.
Their favourite thing to collect: Pens. Both Steve and Issie are pretty obsessed with pens.
Their family:
Sarah Rogers (mother, deceased)
Joseph Rogers (father, deceased)

A weird/obscure fear they have: Being frozen for another seventy years is sort of not your average fear. Also, Issie is a bit weirded out by doors that know when you're coming and open for you. Steve has finally managed to stop automatically thanking them.
A secret skill: Steve can knit a pair of socks, or mittens, or a scarf, in a day. He learned during the war effort to support the troops because he couldn't fight.

Hahaha! I like the idea of America smelling like soap and cigarettes. That's pretty American.

Neither of them sleep much--they don't need it, and Issie is a little worried they might not wake up again for another 70 years.

Oh! Look at you angsting!

This makes so much sense. New headcanon accepted.

Hee! Steve being polite to technology is great! I can totally see Tony watching him thank the doors every time and being like, "That's going to get old so fast."

Thanks! I've been practising!

Tony: I thought you were Captain America, not Captain Canada.
Steve: I'm sorry, it's a reflex.

I had a bit of a fic once where Steve is trying to talk with JARVIS and is never sure if he's supposed thank him or not.

I'm sure Jarvis would appreciate it. Or at least say he does. Tony would probably tell Steve not to spoil Jarvis with all these 'thank yous' and 'I appreciate its'

DUM-E; *picks up something Steve's dropped*
Steve: Erm, thanks.
DUM-E: *happy grabber clicks*
Tony: No, we never encourage him. He'll want to do it all the time now.
