PLEASE NOTE: Set in MCU-verse (Marvel Cinematic Universe - a.k.a. the movies). Also, the S.H.I.E.L.D fandom mentioned in this fic is completely fabricated, though there is a comic series (which has a totally different plot to what I'm writing here).

1 | 2 | 3 | tbc...

Notes: Since Merlin and Sherlock fandoms have their own versions of this trope (which will probably be more worth your while reading than this), I figured the Avengers could do with one. Actually, that's a horrible, horrible lie. This monster of a fic started because I wanted to write cat!Jarvis and cat!Dummy living with Tony. XD

1) Oh my God, I hate LJ character limits. SMH.
2) Wait, LJ coding is even worse. Shoot me. Y U NO WORK?
3) Sudden realisation that I could've used the Young Avengers as a fandom instead of making one up. *headdesk*

SERIOUSLY

I was waiting for a train my bus, and I saw a man kick a bird. He got it, too. I mean, WHAT THE FUCK. Who kicks birds? If you don't want it near you, gently shoo it away with your hands, or something, don't fucking kick it. It was an ibis, which yeah, are annoying pests like crows, but are essentially harmless overall. It wasn't even doing anything to deserve a kick, like pecking or attacking - it was walking around innocently.

Ugh. Faith in humanity slightly diminished.

I was just thinking, what would aliens think if they ever happened to listen to the English language?

Because I say "shit" and "crap" a lot, you know, when I screw something up (drop something, trip, burn myself or spill something, etc.). I also say "what the fuck" quite a bit. My part of Australia is pretty relaxed about swear words - to be fair, I live in a pretty bogan area - but would aliens know about that? If they only had a limited time to study what is admittedly a very complicated, convoluted language, would they be able to realise the context?

Or would they think humans have a very strange and constant fascination with bodily discharge and reproduction/coupling? "Shit, mate, that's the fucking balls!" is one such example of how colloquial English could confuse any eavesdropping extraterrestrial beings. "Holy shit" or "Holy crap" may even make them think we worship it.

I would image that the report would read something like, "Humans seem very comfortable with mentioning excrement in the middle of conversations or even moments of heightened pleasure / high-energy (i.e. sex, fighting) without prompt or explanation." And if they run a scan to double check, they might come across scat, watersports, etc.

In short: I really hope if we're visited by aliens they can understand sarcasm/tones/context of language. Also, that they don't invade and enslave humanity.
