"You will explain the rules?"

"Put the ball in the basket."

"Yes, I had figured that one out," Thor says wryly.

Steve looks up and grins. Sometimes he forgets that Thor isn't just a giant Labrador puppy of a man, and that just because he doesn't know a lot about things like basketball doesn't mean he's stupid. Steve should know better; he hates it when the others treat him that way because of some future thing he hasn't gotten the hang of yet.

The best thing about this is easily the Thor--Steve's a great voice for it, and it's a great connection they have, being out of place, and the arc is Steve working through that in various ways--but the Thor spot-on. Belligerent and enthusiastic and competitive and intelligent and kind and FUNNY. Really, really great.
